1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship? I think it showed that there wasn't really an "ewwww" factor in their relationship. He could've been any big brother out with his little sister

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date? I thought Jacob should just GET OVER IT, but I agreed with Quil. If he imprinted on Claire, it would be really rude to just disregard that connection.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam? At that point, I totally sided with Sam.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness? I really thought he would kill Edward.

It showed us what his real feelings are for Claire at this stage in their relationship.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
No, I have felt the same way about not wanting to date. If his heart wasn't it why force yourself?

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I totally sided with Sam.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
He pretty well did what I expected him to.

I did think it helped. It allowed us to see the nature of their relationship. Right now he's the best older brother in the world. I was never weirded out by Quil imprinting on Claire.
2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
No, because he wouldn't have really cared about her. The only woman on his mind was Bella. It would have been a lost cause.
3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
Whether you like it or not, they did break the treaty. No exceptions. I side with Sam.
4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I thought he would be shocked, confused, and disgusted. He would be scared for Bella. He would be pissed at Eward because he is a 110 year old vampire and he didn't think to use a condom, just in case.

I think it shows and explains imprinting properly. Most peoples first reactions were probably like ewww or something, but now we understand that its not always like that. He just wants to keep her safe and happy at the moment, and when shes older, they'll see what happens
2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
The only reason why I thought he should date is so he could finally leave Bella and Edward in peace.. hes causing more trouble than whats needed. But I understand how he couldn't possibly date even if he tried.. because hes got his sights set on Bella still.
3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
Jacob had no right to say that. It's what Bella wanted... and what Bella wanted wasn't Jacob, so hes kinda getting payback because Bella doesn't want him.
4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I thought he'd have a fit, then burst into a wolf and rip Edwards head of... I thought he'd go completely mental.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?

I was a bit weirded out at first when I heard that Claire was 2, but having read that part, I find it adorable. It makes more sense, and the people (i.e. the readers) who aren't inside Quil's head understand that he's there to be Claire's everything; brother, best friend, potential lover. Its all very cute, IMO.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?

I actually thought it was kind of low for Quil to mention that. He knew - since the entire pack can see each others thoughts - exactly how much pain Jake was in over this, and to bring it up like that was wrong. I completly understood how Jake was feeling, and he was right to not involve some poor girl who he would never truly care for in that way.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?

I actually thought it was a little careless of Sam to not at least go to the Cullen's house and see for himself what Bella's state was. For all they knew, there could have been a brand new, wild, bloodthirsty vampire very very close to their land that could have put them ALL in danger. I also agree with Jake on the fact that the treaty didn't say, "You can never bite another human, unless of course one of you happens to fall in love with one, and that human decides that she wants to spend the rest of eternity with you." There was never a qualification like that, so by changing Bella before getting Jacob's blessing, they would have broken the treaty and then the war would have started.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?

He reacted the way I thought he would. Jacob ran true to form throughout the entire series.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship? [/b]

Yes. Because the idea of a teenager imprinting on a child it is a bit shocking. That scene was very nice and it helpd a lot to understand the latter events. SM is very precise with her work. Nothing is wasted.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?

I understand why Jacob didn't want to date. He had a huge heartbrake. Bella was his first love. It's difficult to let it go and he probably needed more time. But Jacob is young and even without the imprint on Renesmee, I really believe he'd get over Bella and moved on.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?

I think Sam was right. Bella wasn't a victim attacked in the middle of the night, with no change of escaping. She was making a choice. She saw the newborns and what they could do and she still wanted to be turned. It had nothing to do with the Cullens. At this time, Jacob wanted revenge. Because he didn't get to convince Bella to give up. So,yeah, part of him was struggling with the whole thing.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?

I don't know, but I think he'd try to convince Bella to gave up the baby, like Edward and Carlisle. I don't know if he'd attack Edward because of the pregnancy.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?

It showed that they could find love, no matter how old the person. Yes it is a bit gross that a teen loves a two year old, but at this stage it's more a "I-love-you-as-a-sister/brother-and-not-a-lover" kinda way.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?

I kinda thought it was a low blow because the whole pack knew how Jake felt about Bella. I at the same time I agree with what Quil was telling Jake. Everyone had made thier choices and they had to live with it. Jake may have been in pain in loosing Bella to Edard, but it was her choice and she told him she only saw him as a brother and not a lover.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?

I really don't side with either of them to be honest. The treaty said that they could not change a human, but that was assuming that the human was forced to change. Bella knew what she was getting into when she married Edward and the pack was aware of what she wanted even if they did not agree with the choice. It may have been the pack's responsibility to protect the humans from the vampires, but if the human wants to spend eternity with them, they couldn't really do anything about that. Plus, Jake knew that she was going to be changed, and nothing could really deter her from that path.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?

Figured some broken bones to someone, a few broken glasses and a few other broken items. And a few death threats to dear Edward.

1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
I'm really openmind, I didn't think it was a weird thing (imprinting in a baby). It's supernatural after all, and a I saw some innocence in that and inmediately pictured Quil as a big brother. That part of the book only recreated my thoughts.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
Nope! Jacob was in love with Bella, he was having a hard time but dating someone else wouldn't help even a little bit, on the contrary, it would mess up everything.
Jacob could say "I can't, I'm in love" but choose other words that also worked out. I liked it.


3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I don't know, Jacob was talking from his fury and Sam seems to me very soft. Obviously they had to do something, not fighting, but something.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I thought he was going to kill Edward, if nothing else.

It let us actually see Quill with Claire... it let us see that there is nothing sinister giong on there, and there's nothing except what Jake said, a loving relationship, like brother and sister for the time being. But, I didn't think it was such a scandal in the first place, it really didn't phase me.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
I partly agree, and I partly disagree. While Jacob is really in love with Bella, I think it might have been good for him to try to get out there... to try and find someone else, because he needed to face the truth: Bella was gone, she was with Edward, and he needed to get that through his skull. But then again, I don't think that as long as he was holding on to Bella as tightly as he was that he ever could have been very happy with anybody else. And it wouldn't have been right for him to be with another girl, but thinking about Bella.

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I sided with Sam, but understood Jake. Of course he was angry and sad, so he was going to say anything that he could to make it so he got his way. But I think Sam's right... it's up to Bella, and they really shouldn't interfere, unless she was out of control or something.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
Oh, I thought he'd go all wolfy again and run away and we'd have another moment of Jake thinking he'd never return, and then returning anyway because he just can't stay away. Or, you know, do something brash and get into a fight he couldn't possibly win (against all the Cullens, he'd have no chance).

I think that the scene really helped set in people's minds that their relationship wasnt in a sick way. I think that the relationship is just at that "brother/sister way". Plus Claire is really cute too. "Qwil awwwwl wet now.

2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
Well, both agree and disagree. I agreed because, well... she's married now, he can't do anything about it. And I disagreed it because well... Jacob loved her!

3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
I totally sided with Sam. I always thought the treaty would be broken if the person bitten was a victim, not that they had chosen to be bitten.

4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
I thought he was gonna freak out, like fainting or something :lol: Apparently not
