Re: Jacob Black #2

Well, you managed to figure out how to move a discussion from one forum to another, which I still haven't figured out how to do, so I think your double post should certainly be excused!! I understand how you feel about Jacob - although I was certainly thrown off by your first post pertaining to him...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

I think you have shown me something I had never thought of before - thank you!! I hadn't seen that progression, nor had I thought to put together the "attract then kill" mechanism and Bella's inability to breathe near Edward! I thought it was just a love thing! You're very welcome. Here's a line fr...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

Well, since my response will now pertain to Bella, I think that it would be appropriate to submit here. (So many character discussions overlap on these threads, but I will take your advice on the other thread to heart!) I don't think that Bella always had Edward on a pedestal. After all, she took c...

Re: Jacob Black #2

Consider that werewolves are NOT the sworn mortal enemies of vampires. Rather, vampires are the sworn mortal enemies of werewolves - they aren't mutually inclusive. Also, consider that THIS vampire in particular is the one that left Bella for dead in the woods, turned her into a zombie for weeks on...

Re: Jacob Black #2

Oh my gosh, could you imagine how difficult that would be to follow though?? It would jump around like CARAZY!!! I try to live by the rule that it pertains most to the character you're thinking most about. So if you're thinking most about Bella and her reactions to the actions of another character,...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

Thank you for bringing the discussion back, my dear friend! I agree. It's incredible how much it took dear Bella to pause for a moment! Her single-mindedness in her infatuation with Edward is possibly the greatest example of her actually acting her age. Being unable to really consider alternatives ...

Re: Jacob Black #2

Oh absolutely that's why she feels insecure around him - but she's uncomfortable, nonetheless. How about we get back to the discussion about Jacob though - or maybe we should switch the forums, since we just had this discussion in the Bella thread!! :lol: Yeah. Sorry. These character discussions ar...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

Everyone sets their own limits when it comes to how far they will go to help a friend avoid self-destructive behavior. "Friends don't let friends drive drunk," etc. Bella was fortunate that the two most important people in her life (outside of her parents) both had her welfare at heart. They both l...

Re: Jacob Black #2

I believe that Bella feeling insecure around Edward has more to do with the fact that he's impossibly beautiful and seemingly perfect. However, as the series progresses, she does see that Edward has flaws of his own, and she slowly but surely becomes more comfortable near his presence. If you were a...

Re: Bella Swan Cullen #3

Sorry to interrupt the Jacob-bashing session Jazz Girl and Swedishskinjer, but let's get back to Bella okay? If we want to talk about Jacob, I'll quote the iPhone commercial - there's a thread for that! I agree with you, Swedishskinjer, that Bella was truly informed when she truly realized that Edw...
