1. We learn that Alice's visions change depending on the decisions of the person she is trying to observe. Did this surprise you at all or was this how you always thought her visions worked? And what does this say about the power of our own choices?
I kind of figured. I'm one of those people who believes that the future shifts with every decision we make... I'm always thinking, "well, if I hadn't done that, what would I be like now?" So... yeah, I figured.
2. How long to you think it took Alice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?
I think they always knew. I think that, but I can't imagine why they didn't stop her, other than they knew that she needed to do it, or that they knew she wouldn't die, not really realizing how close they would cut it. I'm sure Edward flew into the most amazing outrage.
3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?
I can't say that I think they were justified just because of the time... but I can't say that I blame them, either. At that time, people weren't mentally equipped to deal with something like that... we still aren't. The human mind has trouble trying to understand something that it was never meant to. What I mean to say is, while they could have handled it more gracefully, I don't hate them.
And besides, I would have loved for Alice to have a better past, but if her parents hadn't done that, we wouldn't know her. See... future shifts. I can't say that I hate the future her past landed her in.
4. James is somewhat of a performance artist, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his character or his life when he was a human?
Ugh. I think he's pervy. I couldn't say why, but the whole scene had me shivering.
