1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward? I was REALLY REALLY hoping that it would be Edward and I was very disappointed. Next to Edward Alice is the next best thing.

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack? I was just like hmmmmm this is interesting I wonder why she feels that way.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric? I felt so sad for Alice. I didn't necesarily think barbaric but.......... I can't think of the word I want right now.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent? I really liked it. It showed what a loving and caring wonderful father Charlie is.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence? She was probably VERY upset and wondering what is going on here?

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
Edward ofcourse, but I still burst into tears because it was Alice. Any of the Cullens would be better than anything.. even Rosalie
2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
I maybe thought they were more dangerous than they turned out to be..
3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
I wanted to burst into tears again. Alice is so sweet and caring.. but I wanted to know more.. more of what she was like as a human.. and I wanted to know why that happened to her.
4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
That he cares for her more than he makes out to be.
5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
Probably makes her feel awkward and.. maybe untrustworthy? Because shes been able to see everything up until now.. and maybe she thinks that people shouldn't trust her visions as much now because she can't see werewolves or people with them..

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
Edward, I was disappointed again. You think I would know better by now, but nooo...
2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
..Not really..they're natural enemies, neither are bad, they're just meant to think that of the other. The whole 'smelling bad' thing amused me.
3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
That was just the way things were done then, they were probably very sad they had to do that to her, and didn't see her as their daughter, they would rather be able to mourn her. I thought it was just very sad.
4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
I never really saw how much he noticed, it made me sad to see how much she could hurt him without meaning to and doing her very best not to. I never thought of him as just someone who saw everything and didn't know what to do, so helpless.
5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
I think it probably made her feel like she couldn't trust herself anymore, there's stuff she can't see, and it makes her doubt whether there are other important things she's missing?? It really gets on her nerves that she has to rethink her talent like that.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
I thought it was going to be Carlisle because his car was there. I wasn't really expecting Edward so I wasn't too disappointed. Plus, if anyone came back other than Edward I would want it to be Alice. I was pretty happy.

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
No. I know that vampires and werewolves are natural enemies so I thought it was normal for her to react that way.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
I felt really sad for Alice. I don't like her parents because I don't know how they could put their daughter in an asylum.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
I thought it showed that Charlie is a really good parent. He obviously loves Bella and it was nice to see how much he cared.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves.How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
I think it freaked her out a little because she was so used to seeing everyone's future. It probably made her lose some confidence in her visions.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
I'm not really sure who it was going to be. Edward-no, Carlisle possibly, I think I was guessing Victoria who simply stole the Cullen's car.

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
No, just added to what I thought.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
Not really. A hundred years ago was a different age, just like the century prior and the century prior. Maybe a hundred years from now, we'd seem like brutes. If she had lived a century earlier, she would've been burned as a witch. Can only be so happy for Alice that she turned out so fortunate.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
Really showed how much Charlie cared for her, even giving some more insight to what happened during the passing months.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
Weakened it, gives her a confliction to hinder her abilities.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
I really wanted it to be Edward. And I was disappointed even though I was prepared that it might not be him. I was glad it was one of the Cullens at least.

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
No, it just confirmed what I already thought. The vampires and the wolves are natural enemies, so of course they have negative opinions about eachother.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
Her story is so sad. I can't imagine what she must have gone through. I wont call her parents barbaric. I mean, what they did was horrible, but I guess they did not know any better.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
It clearly showed how much he cared for her. And how much it had hurt him to see her so crushed. He wanted to help her so badly, but there was really nothing he could do.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
It made her feel blind. And Alice was not used to not being in control of things. It probably made her feel weak, and maybe a little frightened that her family might not be able to trust her visions now. I think it really messed up her confidence in herself.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
I knew better than to hope it was edward... but i did think i was carlisle. i didnt think stepthenie would put victoria there... it didnt fit somehow. but when i was alice i was soooo excited(understatment) i was literally jumping up and down! :D :lol:

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
Yes, after learning what the wolves were really that dangerous i started to loose faith. i trusted alice more than jacob.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
no, thing were different then and it was probably common for all i know. i did feel terrible for alice though :( *tear*

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
i think charlie is awesome so it was really cool to see his view of the subject. i thought that he was always trying to do his best for bella.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
i thought that alice must have had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that there was stuff she couldnt see. i dont think she was too dissappointed i mean shes so bubbly and bright and .... well.... alice. i dont think it hurt her too much.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward? I had hoped it was Edward

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack? No She's being judgemental just like they are of her.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric? Yes when it said her admission date and the date on her grave were the same. What horrible parents.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent? I did what he could for her I like being able to see what it was really like when she was a zombie.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence? she doesn't understand it and she doesn't like it at all. She's always known her gift was not perfect so I don't think it effects her confidence it just pisses her off.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
I didn't think it would be Edward, though I was still slightly disappointed. I half expected it to be Victoria, going along with Jacob in thinking it was a trick. I practically danced around the room when it was Alice.

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
It brings back to the surface how risky hanging around with them is, in the same way that the pack's hatred of the Cullens brings up the danger of vampires. But other than that, it didn't really change my opinion much.

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
I felt so sorry for her. I thought her parents were awful, to be honest. And I wondered if her sister knew, and what she thought of it. I don't understand how you could just do that to your child, pretend they've died and shove them into a mental home when they were so horrible in those days. It was awful.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
Oh God, it was heartbreaking. If this is in the New Moon movie, I'll probably cry. Charlie pulls at my heartstrings. To hear how much he suffered, and did it all quietly because he couldn't do a thing about it? It was astounding that he could do all of that, just wait for her to get better and suffer through it without shoving her off on Renee again, just because she wanted to stay there. Poor, poor Charlie. I think he's a better parent than clueless Renee, too. I think he's a pretty good dad - understanding, patient, calm.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this affected Alice's confidence?
I think it shook her confidence a bit; she's never not been able to see anyone before, not even Bella, who eludes everyone else. It WOULD be a shock to the system. And an even nastier one, seeing as how figuring out when the werewolves will snap would be useful to them, paranoid as they are about the wolves being untrustworthy.

1) Who were you expecting in the house? Where you disappointed it wasn't Edward?
I was expecting Carlisle or Alice, and yeah I was disappointed.

2) Did Alice's reaction to the news of werewolves in Forks taint your opinion of the pack?
Nope

3) What do you think of Alice's history? Do you find her parents to have been barbaric?
I found it intersting, and yeah I would not put my daugher in a mental hospital just cause she had visons and claim her as dead when I did it.

4) This is our first real glimpse into Charlie's pain over Bella. How did the scene between Charlie and Alice effect your opinion of Charlie as a parent?
I thought he was a wonderful parent.

5) An important piece of information was learned in this chapter regarding Alice's second sight & werewolves. How do you think this effected Alice's confidence?
I think it made her look at her life a little more carefully, and it proabably affected her confidence in a bad way.
