I got the impression that Edward was always very careful to keep his mouth closed while kissing Bella. I agree with MRK, venom isn't acidic and wouldn't have hurt Bella just by being in her mouth, she'd have to have it in her bloodstream--which made contact with Edward's razor-sharp teeth out of the question! I would also like to know how venom destroys contacts; do we have any contact specialists in the fandom to answer this question?

Like there's some other powerful werewolf pack somewhere? I know that probably isn't too likely because it was a La Push legend, but it makes me really sad to think that she was forced into giving up the possibility of having kids someday. Maybe she'll just fall in love like normal people and they'll adopt. I dunno.

I think we're going to have to wait for Stephenie to give us more details about female werewolves and why imprinting happens. I think everyone in book was just guessing; maybe none of them were right! But just think, if Leah were having a period when she phased--would that be the equivalent of being in heat? In a pack of male wolves? That would be really distracting! And if she got pregnant--what would phasing do to her baby? I'm shuddering to think of all the ramifications, here, like being impregnated while still in wolf form. Ewww. I feel like it was a kindness of nature to suspend her periods after she phased the first time.
Over all, I agree with Jake, though. Once Leah stops phasing--and she wanted to stop as soon as she could--I would bet her body will revert back to normal and she'll have the opportunity to have children.

She was trying to protect Edward, I get that, but wasnt' Jasper around? Wouldn't he have known right away that Bella was obviously suffering? Even if Jasper stayed out of the room for those two days or something, I would think that Edward would ask Jasper how Bella was..he would want to know, right?
It seems Bella was succesful in fooling everyone into thinking she didn't feel anything. I'll feel dumb if I'm just forgetting Jasper was somewhere else during this time or something like that but like I said I don't have BD with me. Anyway, any thoughts?

Great question!
It seems reasonable to me that Jasper would have known that Bella was in agony. Maybe Jasper was giving Edward "space." Maybe he was avoiding a depressed emotional climate (Edward). Maybe he was still on the hunting trip with Carlisle. Maybe Bella was better at enduring her pain than she thought. Maybe the morphine supressed Jasper's ability to determine how Bella was doing. I think that last idea might be the closest to the truth. What do the rest of you think?

i'd have to agree. I'm sure Jasper knew Bella would be in pain and didn't want to feel that himself being that the transformation is indescribably painful...definitely not something he'd want to re-live. Also, i believe Jasper is so intelligent and pensive on situations that he would've known that his presence would've depressed Edward- being that Edward can read his mind. Jasper wouldn't want to be thinking or feeling the pain that Bella's enduring letting Edward know it through mind-reading..so i think Jasper just avoided the whole transformation to keep Edward's sanity.
Cause I've been waiting for a miracle, and i'm not leaving...

Can there ever be a Half-Vampire Half-Werewolf? I'm not saying Jacob and Renesmee here but like, a Vampire Dad and a WereWolf mom.

i kind of get the impression that jasper just wasn't around during the transformation at all--especially since Nessie has human blood in her. wouldn't that have been a really big temptation for him? i mean, rosalie got over it probably because she was too happy to have a baby around to ever put Nessie in danger. but jasper...i dunno. maybe he was just out somewhere so he wasn't around bella. could be wrong though.

and to answer your question, vampwolf, i don't think there ever would be, just because the enmity between werewolves and vampires runs very deep. i know jacob and the other werewolves got over that...but still. plus, they still smell really bad to one another so they might not want to go there at all lol. maybe i'm just shallow, but imagine being with someone that just perpetually had extremely bad B.O. that's just unappealing. for me, anyway, i dunno about other people...

but! i suppose if they got over all of that there's a possibility?

I wear contacts and i've noticed that they're pretty hard to destroy :lol:
I think they're made of silicon so if the venom is acting like some kind of acid it would be able to dissolve the contact but then you would have some kind of fluid silicon in you eye :P

1.Whats with victoria mentioning something in her head about seth and a werewolf james tracked somewhere else?
was she speaking of the 'real' monstrous werewolves and not shape shifters?


Victoria was trying to make sense of what Seth was. She could tell that he was not exactly like the werewolf that James had tracked previously. SM put this in Ec to foreshadow the revelation in BD that the pack was not werewolves but shape shifters.

2. oh and what were victoria's and james' powers? it stated in the index that the possessed a special gift, what was it?

James was a tracker.
Victoria had a gift for making evasive maneuvers. This was why James kept her around. She was able to discern if a situation was too dicey to continue pursuing.

isn't leah sort of the answer to that? no, because female werewolves are sort of like female vampires in that they can't have babies.
even so, if said female werewolf is able to have babies once she stops phasing and continues aging again, she is half-werewolf, half-human. so, no?
hmmm. let's see. i guess maybe, perhaps, somehow it could happen eventually, but it doesn't seem liking, what with the bad smell and all =) hehe

i was wondering about that yesterday, too. that makes sense. but is tracking really a special gift? i suppose it is.. but it's not like he actually had a gift like alistair or demetri, he was just good at what he did. or so i thought.

it's possible or so i think.
someone like Leah for example, when she stops being a wolf and her body goes back to normal. she could concieve a child with a vampire.
so the baby would be 50% vampire, 50% human (half werewolve) - quite interesting.
When leah stops being a wolf, the werewolve part is just a gene that can be passed down, just like eye colour is just a gene. you know what i mean. so i don't think it would really effect her to have a baby with a vampire.

When you change into a vamp, you're frozen exactly that way, according to a SM faq somewhere. So Bella would still look like she's pregnant, no? She changed to a vamp seconds after giving birth. So wouldn't she have a belly (she obviously has one since jake first comments 'there's no way she could have been THAT pregnant one month after the wedding)

Yet nobody comments on that fact that BELLA AS A VAMPIRE should LOOK LIKE SHE"S STILL PREGNANT (ie when Charlie visits, he would definitely notice, or J Jenk's henchman says Bella looks like a supermodel...not exactly the descript of a pregnant woman, eh?)

I get that it went with the plot, the baby coming out without Bella dying, but, I dunno, that was the biggest loophole for me.
