1) Regarding the “honeymoon”, did you expect the outcome to be different, that Bella would have been hurt much worse? Or less?

I thought that she wouldn't be hurt at all actually. But still... she bruises so easily as it was revealed. What I mean is that you really have to punch me hard in the stomach to get a tiny bruise but my mom is the exact opposite. If i press hard on her skin for a sec she's get a bruise no matter what. Therefore I don't think that Bella was really hurt and that is why she couldn't remember aching at all. But still Edward felt guilty

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”

Bella is the most precious thing in the world for him. I think he's justified enough

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?

I think that yes generosity can ONLY be taught. But If your character trait is to be giving you'll resist the cheap behavior and vice versa.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?

I didn't expect to break this promise to himself but I wished for it :lol: :lol: :lol: They are perfect for each other on all levels.

I thought it was going to be a hell of a lot worse. After all, in other books, Bella talks about just poking Edward in the ribs and how that was going to give her a bruise later.

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”
I thought he had a right to. But really, it was kind of a mature way of saying "I told you so".

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?
I think he's just generous by nature. He was probobly generous in his human life and it was intensified.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?
I didn't think he would break this promise. He's not weak, and he is stubborn. And he's not human.

1) Regarding the “honeymoon”, did you expect the outcome to be different, that Bella would have been hurt much worse? Or less? I think that it was the perfect amount. It would have been unrealistic for her not to have gotten hurt at all.

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?” I think it was typical Edward to take all of the blame and hate himself for hurting Bella and deny his pleasure. I was a little irritated with him for ruining what should have been the most beautiful moment. But I can't stay mad at him for long. :)

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that? Yes, he obviously has been watching Carlisle and the way that he treats Esme. He has been lonely for so long and longs for a relationship like theirs.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself? I was hoping! I was so disappointed for her when he was beating himself up and ruining their honeymoon. I am so glad that he caved. :)

I was expecting for Bella to be hurt not minorly , but not like deathly injured. it was obvious that she would be hurt somehow.

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”
Yes and no he only beat himself up because he loves her soo incredibly much. He would do anything to keep her safe and the fact that she was so understanding as she was probably only made him angrier. He didnt want to make Bella upset but he was upset with himself.

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?
Yes he obviously has had some time on his hands to learn a thing or two about being generous. He can just watch anyone of the Cullens to learn how to treat someone he truely loves.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in [b]his promise to himself?

Yes, because though him and Bella are both stubborn, he really does care about her and her happiness. Plus, now that he knew what to expect he was able to learn from the prior time about what to expect.

1) Regarding the “honeymoon”, did you expect the outcome to be different, that Bella would have been hurt much worse? Or less? I did not expect Bella to get hurt. I almost have trouble to this day understanding how she got that hurt.

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?” I think it is very Edward and in his own mind he is justified because hurting Bella hurts him twice as much. I do think he went a bit overboard. If Bella says, hey I can handle this. He should respect that.

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that? I think it is a learned behavior. People who have everything can easily give and if they are taught to do so, they can give the world freely. I think Edward, if he greaw up human would also have been a giving person. I don' think becoming a vampire changes you that much, as you see with Rosalie, she is issentially the same person. So is Bella.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself? I didn't expect but I hoped!

I expected Bella to be hurt. That she escaped with only bruises was a relief.

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”

When Edward overreacted to Bella's bruises it really annoyed me. I mean you're a vampire in the middle of your wedding night to a human what would you think would happen? I still don't think he was justified in 'holding out' on Bella. Good way to ruin a honeymoon!

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?

I think Edward would had to have been a generous person before he became a vampire. Remember once you become a vampire you stay pretty much as you were as a human presumably with the same personality traits.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?

Yes, absolutely. When in the series has he kept any of the promises he made to himself? Never. He didn't stay away form Bella from the beginning. I knew Bella would talk/seduce him into having a 'normal' honeymoon.

1) Regarding the “honeymoon”, did you expect the outcome to be different, that Bella would have been hurt much worse? Or less?

I'm not sure what I expected! Maybe that it would result in her change?

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”

He certainly had a right to express his anxiety, but sometimes he takes his concern to the extreme and just ends up irritating Bella!

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?

Probably... if he sees Carlisle giving gifts to Esme, and that makes her happy he wants to do the same for Bella. He doesn't seem to understand (or care) that it makes Bella uncomfortable.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?

I suspected he would falter! Bella is almost irresistible to him! And even when he decides things for himself (and/or for Bella) Bella has a way to change his mind.

1) I was very surprised when she woke up covered in bruises. I mean, I knew she might be heard a little but not u know BRIUSES hurt.

2) Well, he wasn't justified in it after Bella told him she wasn;t hurt but I mean, we all know how much he loves her, did we really think he would respond in any other way.

3) I don;t think so, I think he would have been just as giving when he was human. He just didn't have as much to give before.

4) Oh please, he can't help but give Bella whatever she wants. Which I think is sooooooo sweet. I am so hopelessly in love with him. (sigh)

I knew she would probably have a little damage but I didn't think it would be as bad as Edward thought. He always thinks the worst.

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”
He just thought she was playing it cool, since she always downplayed her pain with everything to keep people from being in pain.

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?
I think it is mostly learned. Sine he wasn't mentioned as having money to do that before he was a vampire. He was 17 when he was turned so if it was just the way he was then he would have been that way as a human. But of course they didn't go into much on Edward as a human, just that he was dieing.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?
Yeah, he had to do something to stall Bellas transformation as well as the sex things so that is why he said for them to be married first. He was hoping that she would change her mind or be turned before hand. But he also sometimes gave her what she wanted so he at least agreed to try.

I was expecting maybe a few broken bones. It turned out terriffic!! :D

2) In terms of Edward’s reaction to hurting Bella during the night. . . Do you think he was justified in expressing his anxiety by “souring Bella’s mood?”
Of course. It hurt him more than hut her... and he didn't know Bella's mood so in wasn't on purpose.

3) Apparently Edward’s extreme generosity is a learned behaviour. Do you think it is? And what is your opinion on that?
Learned form Carlisle. His father is the most beautiful, kind, unselfish person in the world. Only with a father like him could exist someone like Edward.

4) Edward confirmed that he will not make love to Bella until she is changed, did you expect he would falter in his promise to himself?
YES!! He enjoyed it the same or more than Bella. Then when the getting hurt crap disolve he would be giving her whatever she want.
It's too green. An alien planet!
