4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

One of the many wrong things Bella does to Jake, *sigh*
"Why won't you leave me alone?"
Believe me,I wanted to say. I've tried.
Oh, and also, I'm wretchedly in love with you.

Yes I was surprised.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I still wasn't making a lot of it, but I was wondering why they were being mentioned so much.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
Like Bella says, I thought they were annoyingly goody two shoes for a gang.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like this, Bella freaked out a little when she went to the Cullen's house, the meadow had even more meaning to her.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
Yes I was really surprised. She has always been so afraid of blood and here it didn't really seem to affect her. I guess she was really distracted

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
Not really. I didn't think much of it. I think that I didn't pay attention to it because I was thinking more along the lines of "when is Edward coming back!?" haha

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I thought that they were an annoying gang but I had a feeling they were going to play an important part in the book.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I really didn't like how she was looking for it, especially with Jake. She knew that it would probably effect her alot and she wasn't being fair to Jake by going here with him.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
I thought it was odd, but she had lost so much of herself when he left that it made sense for every little thing to be different.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I knew it would. Stephanie never writes repatitve things, or writes even small tidbits without meaning. I just didn't realize it would play as large of a role as it did. I would've changed Bella and Jacob's confrontation very different when she thinks he's a murdurer and he thinks she is terrified of him.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I HATED THEM!!! I felt protective of Jacob! He was the only person in the world that could help Bella and make her feel 25% human instead of 20%, and he was going to be taken from her to. How much could this girl be expected to be put through??

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
That was just not cool of Bella. If she wanted to go, she should have gone without Jacob. It was very obvious that he loved her as more than a friend, and it would have hurt him if he knew how much she hung on to him.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
Actually, no. She was pretty satisfied by hearing Edward's voice that she really didn't care that blood was gushing out of her head.


2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
Since the "bears" were really a big worry around Forks, I knew something was going to tie in with Bella, Jacob, or the Cullens in some way.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I considered them like a bunch of guys trying to find something to do in little La Push. From Jacob, they didn't sound like they were bad in anyway except with Sam looking at Jacob strangely; then I was wondering what was up but not with the others.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't want her to look with Jacob, honestly. =( I always thought the Meadow to be just Bella and Edward's secret place together. Thankfully they didn't go but still, I got upset that she wanted to go there with Jacob. =/

Yeah I was pretty surprised, but things change under different circumstances so it wasn't something I really was too surprised of.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I knew something was going to happen but I wasn't sure what at all at this point. Just theories about vampires.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I was a little curious about the "gang" but I liked Jacob's then friends.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like that idea at all. The meadow was Bella and Edward's place and I was actually really pissed that she even thought of the idea for Jacob to go there with her. I was really upset about it for a while. Thank god they didn't find it though.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
At first I didn't think about it but now that I have Yes I'm suprised in that we should have expected her to react in the same way as before as it was such a violent reaction and no I'm not because in the moment she was preocupied distracted by the voice also as we know she is accident prone and its likely due to her tripping up that she bleeds alot which shes probably used to it by now and perhaps it is only other peoples blood which has an effect on her as it is the smell not the sight which makes her faint

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
Yeah it annoyed me so much :x I kind of guessed the plot line for Jacob in Twilight when he mentions that the Quileute tribe was decended from wolves and then when the large bear was first mentioned I was certain and so I was really frustrated throughout most of New Moon that Bella couldn't see this!

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I guessed that they were werewolves (especially as Sam found Bella in the woods so quickly) but I still thought that they were a bit dodgy at this stage

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I thought that it was really wrong of Bella to do that it was Edwards special place and it was a place where she and him had a strong connection it was clearly a bad idea to go there when she wasn't going to find him there for her own mental health and bringing Jacob to find a spot where she wanted to feel closer to Edward despite jacob being in love with her was just selfish and cruel to him

1) A little, but I think she really understood how to protect herself from the fainting by not breathing. It was not so much the sight of blood as it was the smell of it.

2)I didn't.

3) I really did not have an opinion of them at this point.

4) I understood why. She needed her delusions and Jacobs company and expertise in hiking at the same time.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?

Yes I was because she could smell the blood right away in Twilight and here she didn't notice the blood until Jacob said she was bleeding and she said she felt wet and sticky and she could smell the the mooss more than the blood.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I thought there was something to it but I didn't think that it was going to be all that important.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

That they were just some random Rez guys that they liked extreme sports and to have a nice safe place to live, I thought that there was something weird with Embry becoming part of their "gang" but I didn't think that it was something too serious.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

I knew that she needed his company for so many reasons one of them was that she was going to get lost if she tried it alone, two he was her friend, and three she needed that peace that Jacobs presence provided constantly.
