1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I think she did what she had to do. Probably Charlie would have let her go even without her saying those things, but it would have taken time to make up a story. And Bella didn't have time. So therefore it was necessary.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
They have a very special bond. They both have this uniqe talent, and they are able to communicate without actually speaking. And Edward knows that Alice looks out for him, by the fact that she can see the future (even if he doesn't always like what she sees, she is usually right). So they clearly have a very special relationship. Alice is also the one that is the most supportive about Edwards relationship with Bella.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
He left because he didn't want to get involved. I do not think that he left because he didn't want any part in killing Bella, he couldn't care less what happened to her. He just wanted to avoid a fight with the Cullens. I guess he could probably see how close they were, and how they would fight for eachother.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I was not surprised. Maybe surprised that he said it, but not that he felt it. Jasper has lived with Edward for a long time, and he has probably seen/felt a dramatic change in Edward since Bella came into his life. So he knows how important Bella is, and what she means to Edward. He also knows what loosing her would mean to Edward.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
No. It was the last resort. She knew that she didn’t want to go there. She knew that she would go there if he wouldn’t let go. And Charlie was not letting go. She had to do what she could to keep her and her father safe.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
He is closest to Alice. There are no two ways around it. Alice is the only one who understands him. He knows that Jasper kind of understands, but it’s Alice who really knows what he is going through. They are both freaks and they have to protect each other.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
Part of me says that he is truly intrigued by the lifestyle the Cullens have made. The other half wants to say that he’s just not into fighting.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
Absolutely not! I think that everyone says that it’s all because of Edward, but you know what. It’s not just Edward! Part of it happens to be that he likes her too! Alice loves her for crying out loud. Of course he’s going to tell her she’s worth it. She absolutely is. There is no two ways around it.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

She went as far as she needed to, which was actually pretty far. I just hoped that she could repair her relationship with Charlie eventually. I thought her tactic was pretty necessary, but super super upsetting because I really like Charlie.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

It says how much they know about each other & care about each other. They obviously have a mutual respect for each other that transcends the relationship they have with their other siblings.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

He didn't want to be a part of their hunt. I think he was only a member of the coven because he honestly didn't know where else to go or what else to do.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it? What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

I thought Jasper's talent was more about emitting emotions rather than feeling them, so I was interested to learn just how much he can actually sense in the environment. I think he came to that conclusion based on both Edward & Alice's feelings for Bella.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I wished she could have thought of another tactic; even when Renee is in the hospital and Bella wants to get out of bed to comfort her and stop her worrying, I was worrying about how Charlie would be feeling. It really upset me how much she had to hurt him; but she HAD to do it, because there was no other way around it. It was even more heartbreaking in the film, for some reason. I felt so sorry for Charlie, and completely understood Bella's meltdown in the truck afterwards.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
It shows the level of respect that they have for each other; the only other person Edward has that much respect for is Carlisle, who he idolises, so it shows how deep the bond between Edward and Alice must be for her to be able to stop him. It makes sense that he would trust her, given his ability to see her visions, but I think it's deeper than that; it's the bond the two of them have formed from having their mind abilities that actually persuades him to listen.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
He knew that it couldn't end well, and didn't want to be part of it either way; self preservation would have told him that he, without any gift like James or Victoria, would have been the one to come off the worst when versing seven vampires; plus, James' games had begun to bore him. Denali was the closest thing to a way out for Laurent, to joining another coven and getting out of James' as well as personal danger.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it? What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I was really touched by that comment from Jasper. His being able to feel emotions, he read it from her; amongst everything else, he felt the sense of worthlessness coming from her that Bella does often feel around Edward, let alone in that situation. And he picked up on that to make her feel better. I thought it was really sweet; it's one of the things that made me like him as a character, despite him being more distant than the rest of the Cullens.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I thought it was necessary. Very sad, but necessary. Charlie wouldn't have let her go any other way.
2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
They both have to stick together. They are very close, and most of it isn't even spoken. It's silently just known that they trust each other. They don't have to say anything out loud. Alice knows Edward very well, and she can see his decisions. She talks to him in her head, and she can get him to listen to reason because of her talent.
3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
He wasn't very closely bonded with them. It was just convenient. He didn't want to die for a silly little mortal girl. He was too interested in the Cullens and wanted to learn more about their lifestyle. He goes to Denali because it's the only way he can do this and get away from James and Victoria.
4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
It did surprise me. I was very happy, because Jasper doesn't say much in the first two books. He's just kind of there. The things that he do say and very meaningful and important, and it's those things that really form his character. He knew how Edward feels about Bella, and he saw how she feels about him. Jasper just stands off to the side and watched everything, and he learns a lot about people.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far? No she did what she had to do so that he would let her go.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship? She's his best friend.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali? I think he didn't want to end up dead and he knew that if he fought with James and Victoria that's what would happen. He doesn't know the Cullens well enough to fight with them and to him Bella's life was not worth fighting for. So he chose to stay out of it. He went to Denali because he was interested in the vegan way of life and wanted to learn more.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could fell that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion? No he can feel what people are feeling so he could feel her self doubt and worthlessness. He came to that conclusion because like Esme he knew Edward was not whole until he found Bella.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far? I don't think that Charlie would have let her leave any other way. As much as it hurt Charlie, I think she did what she needed to do.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship? I think that they are very close to each other. They both have something about them that makes them special, reading minds / seeing the furture. I think that probably makes them closer than the others.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali? He was interested in what the Cullen's were about and how they lived, but did not want to deal with James and Victoria anymore, he seemed to have enough of them and their ways.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion? No not surprised, we knew he could feel and change the feelings around him. I think he felt she was worth it because he can feel how Edward feels about her and the others too.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
boohoo. poor charlie!! :cry: yes, i think she went a little far. i dont think charlie would go after her if she simply walked out after telling charlie she wanted to get out.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
they're close, they're buddies, they go way back (more than you know :lol: ), they both know what its like to have this extra ability and thats made them closer, etc.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
from the beginning, i didnt think laurant fit in with james and victoria. i didnt blame him for leaving and i wasnt surprised.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
i wasnt surprised until i read midnight sun! (yeah, i know *gasp* and all that) before, i was like "oh, thats sweet and comforting" but after i read midnight sun i was like "wait a sec...is this the same guy that tried to calm and comfort her in the hotel??" then i was shocked!

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
A little but I think she had to. It was the only way.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
That they're really close, it's nice.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I was grateful to him!

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
What she meant to Edward. All his family could see him finally happy, like he has never been before. Like Alice said later: "Do you think we want to see Edward's face for the following 100 years if he loses you?" , something like that.
