Well, I picked Ian, but I don't like being boxed into one choice.
I change my mind constantly, depending on my mood. Right now I'm totally digging how bad as.s Melanie was. Definitely love how strong and determined she was. Despite how inevitable her death may have seemed to her, she never gave in willingly.
Also, I am absolutely enamored with Jeb. He didn't take crap from anyone. I bet he slept with that gun under his pillow, and with one eye open. And you could tell that, as much as he laid down the law in the caves--as stern and authoritative as he was--everyone respected him. That says something about him.
And finally, just like Ian has a lot of the same characteristics as Edward, the converse is true, too: Jared seems to be a bit like Jacob. It feels like their positions were switched, though. Ian was the outsider, the one that has to work against...nature (?). Mel and Jared are natural together. Wanderer would have stayed with Jared if she'd never left Mel's body. It's very much like Jacob working against the all-powerful bond that exists between Bella and Edward. It's kind of like Jacob succeeds in The Host.
Okay, so I over think EVERYTHING, but do you think there's anything to the fact that Jake and Jared start with a J, and Ian and Edward both start with a vowel?
All right, never mind. Now I just sound like a crazy person.
