My daughter wrote to me some time ago: Bella should go to the University of Miami, where she encounters manatee mer-people who feed her to a shark to appease their higher power. I like the fact that you’ve pointed out that Sasquatch has yet to make an appearance (maybe the vampires killed him off already?). And it just dawned on me, the irony of Belle being from Phoenix, the name of another magical, mythical creature and all that it represents! Keep writing - I'll keep reviewing!
Great! The "what if" Jacob Imprints has been answered! Don't know how the real thing will pan out, but the "I call" is always fun. I like how it all comes together, and how in character everyone is. Thanks for a good read!
Author's Response: I wasn't going to drag it out. There's enough angst as it is. :) Thank you for reading. I have 7 chapters written and more even to come after that. Certainly something to keep me busy this summer.
I like the image that comes out of this, that Edward is very much a seventeen year old boy, and an obsessed one at that. Also reading this, I'm reminded that Alice couldn't "see" the werewolves, and that she didn't know at the time of the cliff jump that she couldn't know that all was dark because Bella was with Jacob.
Author's Response: Edward is difficult, all of the emotions of a teenager, but combined with wisdom of someone who has been around for over a century. Not to mention overwhelming strength of emotion. I feel bad for him. :)
Hmm, the Imprint would be a big factor, because of what you pointed out in the story - Jacob would have to leave Bella. I like how true to the story it it, but was he ever referred to as "Ed"? Otherwise, this was like reading a draft that SM wrote and decided not to use.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad that you like it. No, I think that anyone referring to Edward as 'Ed' would soon find themselves minus a limb or two. That was simply Bella unable to finish thinking his name. That's all. :)
