Re: Jacob Black #2

Merely philosophical musings, but you bring up an interesting point, Girlie Wolf . And, given the forum, I'm pretty sure of the answer I'm going to get. But, I want to pose the question. You say that Jacob is more human than, and I'm interpreting your meaning based on your inclusion of vampires, Ed...

Re: Imprinting

Going back a step- I believe the "wolf gene" as it were can be passed through the females. Otherwise you wouldn't have discussions regarding characters like Jacob or Quil who have the wolf "on both sides" (i.e., from both the mother and father). To wit, Leah should be able to pass it on. I thought ...

Re: Imprinting

Oh, all my speculations and opinions are based solely on the musings of the book characters as well. I just didn't realize that you were assuming that only males could pass on the gene. I wouldn't be so sure of that, actually. Although now that I think about it, I guess it does make sense... well th...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

Okay. Thank you for answering my question, but for some reason, I'm just not getting it. I'm sure it's my fault, but, just so we're clear: You're saying that you don't think that Bella ever had any romantic love for Jacob? Only platonic? If so, I disagree. If you're saying that Bella wasn't in love ...

Re: Imprinting

I don't think that gene-passing makes complete sense either, I'm just going with what was provided. Not much to work with is there? :lol: Although, SM did make a point of pointing out that Nessie and Jacob have the same number of chromosomes - 24 - which is more than humans but less than vampires. S...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

Well, I am now frustrated, because I know I've said three times at least that just because Bella was comfortable with Jacob didn't mean she was in love with him. :roll: But you're right, it's getting nowhere. But maybe, if you were to take something away from this conversation, as you hope I am, it ...

Re: Imprinting

Hmm. I think I'm missing something in your logic there. Why can't Leah imprint just because she's the first female wolf? I'm not saying I disagree, I'm just curious.

Re: Jacob Black #2

I LOVE that someone else sees that! I see it a little differently, granted, by I love that someone else sees that it's not Sam's Jacob that is a cynical jerk, it's not Sam that makes him that way, it's not being a wolf, it's being continually led on, rejected, and hurt by Bella! I think his cynicism...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

If you want to know where I came up with this, in Twilight, the paperback, on page 119, Chapter 6, Scary Stories, Bella has her first interaction with Jacob. She mentions that he's good-looking: "overall, a very pretty face", pg 119. "I couldn't help grinning back" page 120, "He was very easy to ta...

Re: Imprinting

With Leah, we don't really know anything for sure. All SM has said about it is that she is happy being second in command of Jacob's pack. To me, that kind of seems a little simplistic. Really? All it took was being second-in-command and she's all good?
