1. Compare and contrast the Jasper/Alice meeting and subsequent love with that of Bella and Edward? Is one destiny and the other choice?
Hm. They both are meant for each other so obviously. With Jasper and Alice, it was instant. With Edward and Bella, it was very different. It took time, and they went through several stages before they got to the point where they felt as strongly as Jasper and Alice did.
2. Do you think it’s odd that Jasper has a tone of reverence in his voice when he speaks of the Volturi?
Not really. With his background, fighting for so many years, he's so used to them being what kept them stable. With his reading emotions, he would have been even more miserable in the chaos without them. It was semi-orderly because the Volturi were keeping things in order.
3. Do you feel that sometimes people in a powerful position have to make hard and ruthless decisions for the “greater” good?
Yes, if the Volturi were too lenient on people, the world of vampires would be weaker and could be exposed. It's their job to do horrible things to protect the bigger picture.
4. Discuss Carlisle’s loyalty to the Denali clan, versus his loyalty to the wolves.
He's loyal to both of them. With the Denali's, they're very close friends, extended family. With the wolves, they're not as close. Carlisle is loyal to them, and wants to protect them, but he sees them more as children, not on the same level as the Denali's. It's also different, because he's met more than one generation of the wolves. He wouldn't choose one over the other. He's loyal to them in different ways.
