But the fact that Edward even considered such an idea shows that he truly did respect Jacob. I've always felt that Edward was jealous of Jacob's mortality and Bella's regard for him, but respected Jacob enough to be honestly grateful for all that Jacob had done for Bella. (But it didn't stop Edward from fighting for Bella as hard as he could!)
I agree with you. except it didn't gross me out. I think i am proberly the only one but that's proberly because of my own oponions and interpretations. I always thought that it was Edward's way of giving 'bella and jacob' another chance to be together. regardless, it showed me how Edward truly loves bella, it's not like i didn't know that before but enough that he would again drive her off into another man's arm? How tormented he would be, pained and broken inside, for bella
The edward-jacob alliance is what made me finally like Jacob in Breaking Dawn. he's still so and so in other books but i started to like him.
I found it kind of odd with the whole 'punching each other arms' thing when i read it at first. But then i kind of got used to it but at first i just had a confused look on and going 'whaaaa?"
I think it's cute now...
