Team Love Shack:: Eclipse Read Along Chapter 12 Time

Chapter Number: 12 
Chapter Name: Time 
Page Numbers:  pp. 267 -286

Date of Chapter:
   June 4 – June 5 2006
Walking to the car after school, Alice discloses to Bella that she is planning a graduation party for her and it suddenly dawns on Bella that graduation is only a week away.  The deadline agreed for Carlisle to change her into a vampire is almost upon her — and she realizes in a panic that she isn’t ready to leave her human life behind, even though it’s what she’s wanted more than anything.  Without her realizing it, the time for preparing herself has slipped away. 
Alerted by Bella’s stricken silence on the way home, Edward drags an admission out of her that she is isn’t really ready, but Bella insists that the combined threat from Victoria, the Volturi, and the recent mysterious intruder in her room makes it too dangerous to postpone her transformation.  Edward insists that he won’t let her go through with this until she feels safe and can freely decide what she really wants.  None of the Cullens had a choice about becoming a vampire; he is determined that Bella’s decision should be unforced.  
Bella asks Edward why he doesn’t want her to be a vampire, thinking it has to do with the fact that she will no longer be soft and warm and tempting. Edward laughs and reassures her that she’ll be the same girl he has always loved — just a little more durable.  In spite of the human aspects that he will miss, he tells her it will mostly be a relief not to have to worry about killing her. But he hates the idea of changing her because staying human would be such a better choice for her.  It seems criminally selfish to him to allow her to become a vampire (and possibly lose her soul) just so he can keep her forever. If there were any way for him to become human for her he’d do it, whatever the cost.   
To Bella’s horror, Edward then asks Bella why she won’t marry him.  After many evasions, she admits that she finds the idea of getting married straight out of high school embarrassing and ridiculous.  It’s just not something intelligent, responsible girls of her generation do.  Edward is surprised by her answer — and relieved.  It never occurred to him that her reservations might be about marriage itself.  When he admits to worrying that perhaps she was more interested in immortality than in him, it’s Bella’s turn to laugh, assuring him that without him, she wouldn’t want to live even a day, let alone eternity.   
Reassured, Edward tells Bella that he understands her qualms about marriage; but he asks her to try to understand how natural getting married seems to someone of his own era.  For a moment she visualizes herself as a radiant, turn-of-the-century bride-to-be, before quickly returning to her own reality.  Edward, for his part, remains unwilling to relent and change Bella unless she marries him first.  They agree they are glad to understand one another’s perspectives better, but it is still an impasse.  When Edward arrives the next morning to take Bella to school, she is staring blindly at a newspaper report on the latest string of gruesome murders in Seattle.  The newborn vampire there is clearly getting scarily out of hand. Bella is terrified by the idea of the Cullens going to Seattle to deal with it, but also of the Volturi turning up to sort things out themselves.  And something is inexplicably blocking Alice’s vision of what is going on. Unexpectedly, Edward suggests that the two of them ditch school and go consult Jasper.   
They find the Cullens watching the latest murder reports on CNN, and debating whether the time has come to intervene.  Emmett is raring to go; Carlisle demurs, pointing out that it’s not their responsibility.  Edward is anxious to forestall an untimely visit from the Volturi.  And Jasper suddenly figures out what is behind the events in Seattle.  Before sharing his revelation, he insists that Bella should be included in the discussion, because she is now one of the family.  But if she is to understand, she will need to know more of his own history.  He rolls up the sleeve of his sweater to reveal row upon row of overlapping scars like the one Bella carries from the bite James left on her hand.

Chapter Number: 11

Chapter Name:  Legends

Page Numbers:  239-266

Date of Chapter: Sunday June 3rd and Monday June 4th

Bella accompanies Jacob to a council meeting of the elders of the tribe, where she sees the rest of the pack, who welcome her as a friend. She is surprised to find Sue Clearwater and her two children, Seth and Leah, at the bonfire as well, and surmises that they must now also be in on the secret. After a lighthearted meal, Bella realizes it’s getting late and she needs to go home, but Jacob quickly lets her know the night is for more than fun.
The elders then tell the stories of the pack’s origins and legends that have been passed down for generations. While Emily takes notes, Billy tells the story of how the Quileutes came to be werewolves. They were originally spirit warriors, able to leave their bodies to defend their tribe, but when the last great chief, Taha Aki, merged his spirit with that of a wolf after Utlapa, a traitorous warrior, stole his body, the werewolves were created. They discovered that as long as a warrior chose to continue changing into his wolf form he would not age.
As Billy’s tale ends, Old Quil begins the tale of the third wife’s sacrifice. Taha Aki saw his third wife as his true mate and gave up his wolf form so that he could grow old with her.  After he had grown old, women in the neighboring Makah tribe began to disappear. The Makahs suspected the Quileutes because of their magic, so Taha Aki charged his eldest wolf-son, Taha Wi, to find the culprit. Taha Wi took five other wolves with him to search the mountains, but sent half the pack home when the trail they followed led them too far north. Tahi Wi and his two brothers never returned. Taha Aki went to the chief of the Makahs in mourning, and enmity between the tribes ceased. A year later, the disappearances started again. The wolves agreed to help the Makahs, and this time they found a male cold one feeding from a maiden. Only one wolf survived the attack, Yaha Uta, the oldest son of Taha Aki’s third wife. The cold one was hard as stone, fast, and deadly, and Yaha Uta lost his two brothers in the fight. He brought the Cold One’s corpse back to the village for the elders to see. The corpse tried to reassemble itself, so they set fire to it and separated the ashes into small bags, one of which Billy still possesses. The Cold One’s mate came to the village seeking revenge and killed the last wolf protector, Yaha Uta, as well as many of the tribe. Taha Aki turned into a wolf again in order to fight her, but he was old and she was too strong. The third wife saw his struggle and stabbed herself in front of the Cold Woman to distract her with her blood. The third wife died, but thanks to her sacrifice, Taha Aki was able to destroy the female. Afterwards, Taha Aki stayed with the body of his wife for one day, as a wolf, then and then ran to the forest and never returned. Over time, the warriors only changed into wolves if Cold Ones came to the area. As long as there were only one or two, the pack stayed small.
Old Quil tells of the coming of the Cullens and the pact made with Ephraim Black, saying that the number of wolves is greater due to their being more Cold Ones around than ever before. Bella feels an affinity towards the third wife and falls asleep thinking of her. Jacob calls Edward and Charlie for her, both to keep her out of trouble as well as ensure additional time with her as a reward for “playing nice.” Jacob takes Bella to meet Edward, who is pacing while he waits for her. Edward takes Bella home and stays with her.  Bella has a bad dream in which Rosalie is fighting Billy Black in his wolf form and sees the Third Wife’s knife in her own hand. She wakes to find Edward reading Wuthering Heights, a novel he previously claimed to dislike. As he lulls her back to sleep, he tells her that she is awakening human emotions in him, and that he can now relate to Heathcliff as he couldn’t before. The next morning, Bella remembers what Edward said, and finds her book open to Heathcliff’s declaration that he could never hurt Catherine by killing her husband, though he longs to do so. She talks herself into discounting the passage as being indicative of the change in Edward’s feelings.

Character Mentioned:  Kaheleha, Taha Aki, Utlapa, Yut, The Third Wife, Taha Wi, Yaha Uta, Carlisle Cullen, Esme Cullen, Emmett Cullen, Rosalie Hale

Places Visited: La Push and Bella’s house

Memorable Quotes:
“I guess. I’m so full I’m about to puke, but I think I can force it down. I won’t enjoy it at all, though.” –Jacob in response to Paul’s asking if he was going to eat the last hot dog
“Hey, vampire girl!”  –Embry to Bella
“What’s the best part? You swallowing an entire cow whole?” –Bella to Jacob
“So that’s why Sam is all black. Black heart, black fur.”  –Quil
“And your chocolate fur reflects what? How sweet you are?” –Sam in response to Quil
“Yeah, he’s not so patient, is he?” –Jacob about Edward
Important Information learned:
The Quileutes were originally spirit warriors.
Taha Aki was the first Quileute to merge his spirit warrior with a wolf and thus begin the werewolf line.
The appearance of the wolf reflects the man they are inside.
As long as the wolves continue to transform they will not age.
The third wife’s tale is the tale of Taha Aki’s wife and how she sacrificed herself so that Taha Aki could kill the Cold Woman.
The sweet scent of a Cold One burns the noses of the wolves to the point of pain.
The Cold Ones must be torn apart and burned in order to ensure that they are dead.
Billy Black wears the ashes of the first Cold One burned by the Quileutes.
Bella identifies greatly with the third wife.
Edward identifies greatly with Heathcliff.

::Team Love Shack:: Eclipse Read Along Chapter 10 SCENT

 I am very sorry Sparkly ones, I have been very remiss on our read along.  My RL got in the way of my Twi obsession, this is a dog chapter.  yes we need to know these things but I don't like to read them again. , I feel like I need a cookie how about you?

Chapter Number: 10
Chapter Name: Scent
Page Numbers: 214 – 238
Date of Chapter:  June 3, 2006
The Chapter starts with Edward leaving, because Jacob is on his way over. When Jacob gets there, Bella finds him wearing only his cut off jeans, and she is slightly put off by the fact that he always seems half naked. Jacob tells her that he has to carry his clothes around with him using a strap that is wrapped around his calf. Jacob decides to get to work and asks Bella where the intruder’s scent was the strongest. When she replies her bedroom, his response is similar to what Edward’s had been.  But Jacob goes up and inspects the area like he was asked to. When Jacob returns he says that he caught the scent.
As Bella washes the dishes, Jacob begins to ask her questions about her and Edward’s relationship, centering on how she feels about him being a vampire and when she is planning on being changed. The anger and sadness of her answer, and the fact that it will be so soon after graduation, causes Jacob to clench down on a knife in his hand and cut himself badly. Bella witnesses his ability to heal quickly and it leaves her astonished. Jacob invites Bella to the reservation for a bonfire party, and Bella tells him she would ask if it was ok. With that Jacob leaves and Edward returns from where he was waiting just outside the house.
Edward asks about the bloody knife Bella accidentally left on the counter after her bleach-filled cleaning frenzy from when Jacob cut himself, and she tells him what happened. Edward takes out a large envelope that he retrieved from her mail and hands it to her. Bella’s application from Dartmouth was accepted without Bella’s knowledge that Edward had even sent it in. Edward tries to persuade her to spend a year at school in an effort to put off her change for as long as possible, but Bella remains unmoved. Her mind is made up – and even waiting until graduation seemed too risky to her.
Bella mentions to Edward about the missing clothes and pillows from her room and asks him to ask Alice where she put them, but he is completely confused. He says that Alice hadn’t taken her things. That’s when the pieces click into place and he realizes that the same intruder that was in her room had taken things that contained her scent to bring back as proof that she had been found. When Edward’s phone rings, it is Carlisle and before Edward can tell him about the new development, Carlisle informs him that the situation in Seattle is getting worse – truthfully it is way out of control. Something needs to be done. 

Edward brings up the bonfire party, and Bella says that she wasn’t going to go because of everything that was happening.  Edward suggests that she go anyway because he knows she wants to. Before heading up to the rendezvous point in-between territories to meet up with Jacob, Edward and Bella go back to the Cullen’s garage to pick up her motorcycle so she can bring it back to La Push, where it belongs. She sees that Edward had bought a bike so he could ride with her. The comparison between the new, pristine bike that Edward bought and her beat up rebuilt bike serves as a comparison of her and Edward which makes her sad. Edward realizes that riding was something special between her and Jacob and plays it off as no big deal. His only request is that she wear the protective equipment that he bought her to keep her safe while she is riding. Edward takes Bella to the boundary armed with a cell phone so she can call him when she is ready to come home. Edward leaves her with a deep kiss for Jacob’s benefit and then drives off – but not before Jacob returns the favor by wrapping his arms tightly around Bella so Edward could see. And Bella is not pleased.

Character Mentioned: Alice Cullen, Jasper Hale, Carlisle Cullen, Emmett Cullen, Emily Young, Kim, Quil Ateara, Charlie Swan, Renee Dwyer, The Volturi
Places Visited: The Swan Home, The Cullen’s Garage, La Push

“We’re a bit sensitive to blood around here. I’m sure you can understand that.” Bella page 222
“Be honest, how hideous do I look?…That bad, huh?” Bella page 235
“No, no, Bella. Actually…You look…Sexy.” Edward page 235

::Team Eclipse:: Jackson, Elizabeth and Alex Reveal the Scenes They Want to See.

At the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" ruled the evening, taking home five Golden Popcorns, including wins for Best Movie and Best Kiss. The next day, many cast members were set to get an idea of how the next installment of the vampire franchise might fare at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
That's because the day after the show, series co-stars like Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser and Alex Meraz had plans to see "Eclipse" for the first time. And coming off the high from their "New Moon" wins, the actors revealed which scenes they were most pumped to check out.
"I'm really excited about the 'Eclipse' action scenes definitely," Rathbone told MTV News. "It's an action-packed film. [Director] David Slade did an incredible job of putting it together. I think people are really going to love it."
The on-screen action certainly seems popular among the cast, because it's that footage that has Elizabeth Reaser energized, too — plus a certain steamy tent scene involving Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
"I'm a little interested in my own action scenes, just to see if I can pull it off," Reaser said. "And then there's some sexy tent action that I'm looking forward to."
Alex Meraz, meanwhile, can't wait to view not only his own scenes but those of franchise newcomer Xavier Samuel. "There are scenes that I filmed that I want to see if they turned out, if they even made it into the movie," Meraz said. "But I'm probably looking forward to seeing Xavier, seeing what he does. He's such a great guy. There's so much meat to his character, reading the script, so I'm looking forward to how he pulls it off in the film."
Check out everything we've got on "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."

Page Numbers: 152-171

 Rosalie asks to speak with Bella so she can tell her why she wants her to remain human.  Bella is surprised by this but welcomes Rosalie to talk with her.  Rosalie begins her story by saying it was a simpler time because she was beautiful and everyone watched her and that was all she needed.  Rosalie is candid about her vanity.  Rosalie continues the story telling how she met Royce King the 2nd.  All she ever wanted was to live comfortably and raise a child.  Royce always wanted to be out with Rosalie because he enjoyed they way people looked at them.  Bella takes in what Rosalie is saying with some shock.  Bella wonders if the reason Rosalie has so much more bitterness than the others is because she was so close to having what she wanted.
Rosalie continues the story and Bella can sense that the unpleasant ending is nearing.  Rosalie recaps the evening of her death.  She remembers everything about that night, the coldness of the weather and her worries about having to move the wedding indoors.  Rosalie had been leaving Vera’s house to head home when she ran into Royce.  Royce was drunk and with several of his friends.  Together, they assaulted Rosalie and left her for dead in the street when Carlisle found her.  He worked on her trying to save her but couldn’t.  Rosalie remembers she felt like she was flying and the searing pain.  She explains how she heard Edward express how upset he was that Rosalie had been changed.  After her transformation, Rosalie chose to stay with the Cullens because she did not want to be alone. 
Rosalie then says she has never tasted human blood.  She says that her record is almost as good as Carlisle’s.  Rosalie tells Bella of her revenge, how she killed each of the men who had harmed her.  She also tells Bella how she found Emmett and that she had to save him because he reminded her of the little child she never had.
She changes the topic to explain to Bella why she has treated her so unfairly.  At first it had to do with Edward wanting Bella, because he never showed any interest in Rosalie.  Rosalie then goes on to say that the reason she has trouble with Bella now is because she has the choice to remain human and have all the things Rosalie was denied.  She asks Bella to think about the choice and what it means to her future.
After the conversation Bella feels better about her relationship with Rosalie and she manages to sleep a little.  The next day, on her way to school, Bella is grumpy with Alice, who is trying to plan something for the evening.  Bella approaches the school and is greeted by Mike who asks her to hang out that night.  Their conversation is interrupted by a loud roaring sound.  Bella looks up to see Jacob on his motorcycle.  Bella makes a run for Jacob and sees Alice in the distance snarling.

Bella leaves La Push feeling it was right to visit Jacob.  Suddenly, a silver Volvo appears in her rearview mirror.  Bella avoids making eye contact with Edward and heads to Angela’s house.  Edward drives by Bella and doesn’t stop to talk to her.  Bella helps Angela address her graduation invitations, and Angela can sense something is wrong.  When she asks, Bella explains that Edward thinks Jacob is dangerous and doesn’t like Bella being around Jacob.  Angela thinks Edward is just jealous.  The conversation turns to the girls preparing for college.  Angela is sad that Bella will most likely be in Alaska, and Bella feels a wave of sadness knowing she won’t be able to keep in touch. 
Bella returns home trying to avoid going to her room.  Finally, she heads to her room knowing Edward will be there.  He is waiting by the open window glaring at her.  Bella tries to make light of the situation, but Edward is furious.  He tells Bella he almost crossed the treaty line to look for her.  Bella questions Edward about being jealous and he insists the anger is only over Bella’s safety.  Edward tells Bella she can not go back to La Push.  After the argument, Bella claims to be Switzerland.  She refuses to get caught up in the battle between mythical creatures. 
Edward has to make up the hunting trip and plans to leave again on Friday.  Bella realizes this as an opportunity to visit with Jacob and calls to tell him.  When leaving work on Thursday night Bella is picked up by Alice.  At first Bella is not suspicious but then realizes Alice is kidnapping her until Edward returns.  Edward rewarded Alice for watching Bella by giving her the canary yellow Porsche from Italy.  Enraged, Bella calls Jacob to tell him she can’t come on Saturday, and he is very upset.  He becomes angry once Bella informs him she is being held hostage even though she knows it is for her own safety.  Jacob instantly wants to rescue her.  Bella tells Jacob good night and calls to leave Edward a message.  Alice shows Bella to Edward’s room where, to Bella’s surprise, a large bed sits.  Bella refuses to sleep on it and instead sleeps on the couch.  Rosalie asks Bella to speak with her.
