Hate Jacob? I certainly do not hate Jacob. I love Jacob. I married a Jacob. At first I thought he was a mix between Edward and Jacob and the more I've been involved with these threads, I realize, he's Jacob. Which explains why I may not have approved of all of Jake's actions, I still LOVED him. I still believe firmly that Bella belongs with Edward, but I do believe that Bella and Jacob were in love (he more than her, sadly). However, I feel Jacob is a worthy character with a good heart and loyal nature.
I think it has been made very clearly, this thread, and Sparkling forum actually, are for serious character discussion. It is not a debate...we are here to discuss issues about the various characters. We are bound, as people are, to be sometimes passionate in our discussions, but the rule is clear; we are to be respectful of one another, even if we must agree to disagree. That is what is so wonderful about the Lex, being able to be here and voice our opinions and discuss all while being respected and respectful. I am sorry you didn't get into the program you wished, but hopefully you will. That being said, it is important to remind ourselves that posting lacks the vocal and physical cues you receive when actually talking with someone. Be mindful when you post as the written word can be interpreted and be careful not to place a particular tone. Give each other the benefit of the doubt, it's okay to agree to disagree, and let's enjoy the art of discussion. Sometimes we all have bad days and it unfortunately bleeds into our posting...
*takes out yard stick* Plus, I do follow this forum, it is my baby, I expect people to follow the rules or I have to be all great and big moderator and smack you and I just don't enjoy it...much. (Please note the humor at the end). All silliness aside, let's be mindful of the posting rules for this forum and enjoy our discussions for what they are, an airing of opinions, thoughts, ideas, feelings in a respectful environment. Remember, sometimes there are no right answers, just different perspectives of the same whole. Thank You!
Now back to our fabulous character, Jacob. I think we need a change of topic. How do you think Jacob views, now that he is imprinted to Renesmee, Bella and Edward. Do you feel his imprinting will change his relationship with them? Do you feel he may see and treat them differently?
Also note, unless you all get out of hand forcing me to post in the open here, if there is a problem...I like to handle the issue through PM's. But let's not let it get to that.
