Re: Chapter 15 ~ The Cullens

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in? I thought that the contrast between having an older home but with a lot of natural light was interesting. Personally, I don't like a lot of natrual light in my home, but that's me. *shrug* When I saw the movie, I was disappointed ...

Re: The Bella Effect

Very nice post, skatepixie ! I agree with your perspective. :hello: The fact is, for Bella, almost everything in her life could happen later. She could go to college later, have a career later. The only thing with an expiration date was Renesmee's childhood. Parents of children who develop at a nor...

Re: Chapter 14 ~ Mind Over Matter

1. What were your first thoughts about Edward's age and human history? Were you creeped out at all that he was so very much older than she was? Not really creeped out. After all, he could have been from the middle ages for all I knew. 2. Edward tells Bella very little about the process of becoming a...

Re: Chapter 13 - Confessions

1. The chapter is entitled "confessions". What do you think the most meaningful confession on Bella's part, and what is the most meaningful confession on Edward's part? Edward -- Showing her what his skin does in the light. Also revealing just how much he is tempted by her blood. Bella -- The depth...

Re: Contradictions in the Guide

I think that it being between people of opposite gender actually is a pretty strong argument for it being about breeding, despite the Midsummer Night's Dream quote. That imprinting manifests as love seems to me a logical way of roping in the non-imprinted partner, and a way of making it as comforta...

Re: Chapter 12 - Balancing

1. What are Billy and Jacob's feelings towards Bella? Jacob is friendly but does have a crush on her. Billy is concerned, because he knows the truth about the Cullens, but of course he can't say anything. 2. Charlie says he's aware that he leaves Bella alone too often, and Bella responds that she d...

Re: What If #11

Yes, with the caviat that I wouldn't have to eat things I'm allergic to. But yes, I could force down nasty food for a month for a million bucks.

Same question.

Re: Ensign Magazine

Being a Catholic, I've never read Ensign. So it was great that this was posted here. It was a great story about the true meaning of Christmas, but it hits home even now, in the last days before the Easter season.
