1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
Yes. It helped show the connection between the werewolf and his soul mate.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
I don't think Jacob could because if you truly love someone even if you can't have them, it doesn't change anything. I don't think he could possibly look at another girl without feeling like he betrayed himself.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I sided with Sam. If thats what Bella wanted then let it happen. She is not an innocent victim. She chose her own fate.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I was honestly in shock. I couldn't say what I was feeling at the moment.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
I understood that right now he is just looking out for her. He doesn't care about all the intimite stuff that is suppose to happy in a relationship...He is just taking care of her and making sure she has what she needs. Hes being like her big brother..but someday he will be able to tell her about the imprinting.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
I mean yeah Jacob should move on, and try to date other people since, obviously Bella isnt going to be with him..but i understand why he wouldnt date. He loves bella, and every person that he see's isnt her.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I mean I dont really think that they broke any treaty.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
Like totally freak out. I would freak out too though. I mean he see's her one day, and then what a few weeks later she looks the way she does...seriously, it would freak anyone out.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?

I think it explained more about the whole imprinting thing. Up until that scene, I thought imprinting was a way to find your soul mate and fall in love at first sight with them. Now I realize why they always say "It's not love at first sight", because in many cases, such as Quil's, it isn't love at first. It blossoms into love, but it isn't romantic love right from the beginning. This scene completely shows that Quil loves Claire like a little sister, and now I'm not as shocked about him imprinting on her.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?

Maybe, but Jacob had to go and be stubborn and decide that, even if she's obviously taken for life, he will still pursue her. Nice, Jacob, nice.
I don't know if I'm allowed to refer to a part in the book that is later on and hasn't been discussed yet, but I will anyway. For those who have finished BD (hopefully almost all of you out there!), I'm thinking of the part where Jacob goes for a drive and goes to the park.... that scene makes it pretty clear why he doesn't attempt to date anyone who isn't Bella.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?

No. I was totally on Sam's side. Bella was fully educated as to what was going to happen to her, and she agreed to it anyway. Plus, like the first person who responded on this thread said, the intent of the treaty is for the Cullens not to bite a human with the intent of killing them. The Cullens just want Bella to be a part of their family. One final thought: I don't think Jacob cared so much about the situation because he wanted to protect the treaty, I think it had something to do with the fact that he loved Bella and didn't want to let her go.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
Well, obviously I couldn't know for sure what his reaction would be, because I didn't see the chapter title, because, leave it to Jacob Black to not bother to put in a table of contents! Lol, I really wanted to point that out. After reading about what he wanted to do to the Cullens when he thought they killed her, I started laughing because he was so far off the mark. I wondered if he would still want to kill the Cullens anyways. :lol:


One last thing: I loved Jacob's preface: Life sucks, and then you die. Yeah, I should be so lucky. :lol: :lol: :lol: LOLOL!

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
Yes, I think it really showed how the imprinting works. It made us see that the relationship between Quil and 3 year old Claire wasn't something sick and disgusting. He was like the world's best big brother to her. He would do anything for her, and care for her all her life. It was really sweet to see how he could be so patient and have so much fun spending time with her.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
I can understand Jacob's reason for not wanting to date. He still wasn't over Bella, and he would just compare every girl to her and no one could match Bella in his eyes. But I still think that he should try to move on. Not necessarily head straight into dating, but try and forget his feelings for Bella at least. She had made her choice very clear by marrying Edward. She loved Edward and wanted to be with him. It was time for Jacob to realize that.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I totally sided with Sam on this one. Bella had made the choice to join the Cullens and become a vampire. She was not a victim of an unsuspected attack in a dark alley. She fully knew what she was getting herself into, and she wanted it. The pack was there to protect human life. But they had to take into consideration that the Cullens had never broken the treaty until this point. And they only did it now because Bella wanted them to. So I think Sam made the right decision here. And I was so happy that Jacob had not assumed his role as the Alpha. I think that would have had horrible consequences both for the Cullens and the wolves. Jacob wasn't seeing straight because of his hate for Edward.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I thought he would freak. That he would snap, and try to kill Edward immidiately. I'm sure that he only blamed Edward for this, seeing him as the monster. He wouldn't want to see that Bella had made love with Edward out of her own free will.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?

Well, I really try to be ok with imprinting. I just really wish Stephanie hadn't gone there at all. I know she did it so Jacob could have a happy ending with Renesmee but I have a hard time with it. I just think that Jacob and Nessie could have had a happy enough ending without the imprinting. I know intellectually that it isn't sexual perversion and that Quil isn't aging so he and Claire will be technically the same age when she falls in love with him but man it still really creeps me out. :shock:


2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
Quil doesn't understand because of the imprinting. It is a sort of blow off self centered remark in my opinion. Jacob is broken hearted and people don't just fall out of love like that.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
Yes, I agree with Jacob.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
Absolute Craziness! He didn't disappoint! :lol:

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?

It gave me a better insight as to what Claire means to Quil at this point in time and, honestly, the entire interaction made it seem less creepy.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?

Jacob doesn't seem like the type of guy who would date just to date. At this point, it wouldn't be fair to the girl he tried to date.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?

According to the letter of the law, Jacob is right. But I did have to side with Sam on this; at this point the treaty doesn't cover the relationship between the Cullens and the Quileutes.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?

I thought he would freak out! I mean, it's almost worse (to him) than anything he could have imagined for Bella.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship? A lot better it wasn't so creepy after that. After hearing Bella explain how Sam and Emily are together it kinda grossed me out especially since I have 2 little girls. But after hearing who Quil treated her it made me a lot more comfortable. (after the second time I read it) (the first time I read it I was to angry to pay much attention)

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date? Yes I think Quil was right. I really do think that Jacob should have listened to Bella and been dating other girls all along. It would have saved him a lot of heartbreak. Besides the girl he could imprint on is out there some where not gonna find her sitting aroung pining for Bella. I understand what he is saying but it's just because he's not trying just like he always accused Bella of doing. Bella wasn't trying to forget Edward just like Jake is refusing to forget Bella

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam? I sided with Seth's point of view. The Cullen's are not their enemy. I agreed that Jacob was not thinking it through. If Bella had been changed. It was her choice. Sam still thinks of them as the enemy just that the hadn't done anything worth dying for yet.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness? Disgust and shock. I'm so glad he went in his human form.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
Getting to see Quil with Claire made the whole thing a little less creepy. Instead of picturing some teenage guy with romantic feelings for a 3 year old, we get to see that he loves her but more as a brother for right now. Quil loves Claire, but he wants her to be happy and doesn't see her as a girlfriend or anything else right now.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
I do think Jacob should try and date someone else. It may have helped Jake to move on if he could see what else was out there. I also agree with Jacob. He was in love with Bella and she broke his heart by choosing Edward. But, in this case, wallowing in his heartbreak wasn't doing him any good.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I get why Jacob wanted to act right away, but Sam was right in this case. The treaty does prevent the Cullens from turning anyone or feeding on humans, but it says nothing about volunteers. Bella wanted to become a vampire so technically the Cullens hadn't done anything wrong.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I had absolutely no idea. I figured he would flip out. I didn't know if he would want to kill the thing or if he would be incredibly relieved that Bella was still human.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
I think it was a great idea of SM to show their relationship more,.. the whole 'not like other parents with the whenisnaptime look'.. perfect explanation.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
Quil wasn't wrong to tell Jacob to date, maybe he thought if he gave it a try it might take his mind of things more. But Jacob's reasoning was enough. You can't force yourself to do something that you don't want to or know won't work. Kind of selfish to date someone or rather, use them, to try and get your mind off of someone else when you know it won't work.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
Eh, this is tough. When Jacob first explained that the treaty was if they even BIT someone, I was like wow.. turning Bella into a vampire goes against that, that Jacob is kind of right about breaking the treaty. But Sam is the new one in charge, and as times change, things don't always apply the same. Now they see that the Cullens are not a threat, they are their allies. They know they would not allow Bella to harm anyone else and are not a threat to them, so I think Sam is right overall. Bella made the choice, she's not a victim.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
Eh,.. this is tough. After book 1, I wasn't really sure what they were going to do with Bella. I kind of thought they would terminate the baby, or maybe it had already tried to kill her and she was transforming into a vampire.. But I definitely thought Jacob would attack Edward for sure.
