Chapter Name: Ethics
Page Numbers: 580 -604
Date of Chapter: January 15
With Jake lying badly wounded in La Push after the newborn battle, Bella is impatiently waiting for the moment she can plausibly leave the Cullens and stage her return home from her supposed sleepover/shopping date with Alice. Alice’s attempts to distract Bella by fussing over her hair and clothes are barely enough to stop her from rushing back prematurely to La Push to sit with the unconscious Jacob. But Alice reminds Bella that it’s vital to Charlie’s safety that he doesn’t suspect anything: keeping up a flawless charade is the essence of the vampire’s life which Bella has chosen.
Recognizing Bella’s turmoil, Alice asks if she wants to talk about Jake, but Bella turns the conversation to something else that is haunting her: the memory of the frantic young newborn, Bree. ÒWill I be like thatÓ she asks Alice, and Alice concedes it is likely, though she can’t be certain: no one before Bella has ever become a vampire of their own free will. She tries to reassure Bella that the frenzied thirst of the newborn is only a phase and the Cullens will keep her from hurting anyone until it passes.
Bella asks why Alice’s powers can work on her, when she is impervious to those of Edward, Jane and Aro. Alice hypothesizes that it’s because their gifts all act upon the mind, whereas Alice’s and Jasper’s gifts work with physical reality. Bella then asks Alice the question that is really on her mind: does she still see Bella becoming a vampire? Definitely, Alice replies. But if Bella changed her mind, the visions would change. Don’t you know what you want? she asks curiously. But Bella does know her own mind; it’s just painful facing up to it. Alice says sympathetically that that it must be terrible to have to choose between two alternatives she wants so badly.
When Bella she returns home, Charlie is waiting for her, and guesses from her misery that she has heard about Jake’s ÒaccidentÓ (he’s been led to believe that Jake got hurt riding his motorcycle). He explains that he was at Billy’s when Jake was brought home; weirdly, Billy almost seemed to have had a premonition that something might happen to Jake. To his great satisfaction, the Quileutes managed to overcome their prejudices enough call in Carlisle. Edward was there too, and Charlie grudgingly admits to being pleasantly surprised by his solicitude for Jake.
Bella remembers how vulnerable Jake looked when last seen, and flinches at the thought of the further suffering she is now going to inflict on him. Better, she thinks, to be painfully split in two by lightning. It dawns on her that her human life has at last given her something it will genuinely be a bitter sacrifice to give up. As if this weren’t enough, Charlie has a request for her. He has a hunch that he’s going to lose her soon, and he asks her to please just let him know before she disappears, so he can hug her goodbye.
Bella arrives at La Push to find the Cullens gone and Jake awake. For a moment, she ridiculously wishes that Edward were there to help her through the coming heartbreak of her conversation with Jake. It is a confirmation, if she needed any, that she’s making the right choice: Edward is indispensable to her. It doesn’t make losing Jake any less painful.
When Bella enters Jake’s room, he’s waiting for her, carefully composed. A moment’s glance tells him how Bella has chosen, and at his first sardonic words Bella thinks she wishes she were dead. But his expression softens when he sees her pain and he asks worriedly about Edward’s reaction to their kiss. When she tells Jake how forgiving Edward has been, his initial chagrin gives way to grudging admiration for Edward’s cunning. Bella realizes to her dismay that Jake still thinks the contest isn’t over. She strikes back, insisting that Edward’s concern for her is genuine and reminding Jake that he was the one to manipulate her, when he tricked her into kissing him.
Jake is unrepentant: it was worth it to get Bella to realize that she loves him. Bella asks Jake if it isn’t actually worse this way, given that it makes no difference to her choice. But on reflection, he says it’s better knowing that he tried everything he could to stop her. When Bella comes to kneel by his bed, he gently refuses her apologies, saying that he always knew it was a long shot. Bella is as stricken by his generosity as she was by Edward’s and begs him to give her the dressing-down she deserves. He does, and then when she breaks down in the face of his mock anger, pulls her close to comfort her. He vows to stop fighting for her love and just be a friend to her, because he can see that the conflict is pulling her apart. Like the mother in the Judgement of Solomon, he will prove his love is the greater by being the one to let her go. Bella doesn’t have the heart to tell him that Edward has already said the same thing.
The hardest part, Jake tells her, is knowing how effortlessly happy they would have been together, if the world of monsters and magic hadn’t intervened in her life and diverted it from its natural course. And Bella reflects that he is right. In the real world he is her perfect mate, and she could ask for nothing more. But their normal human love has been overshadowed by the supernatural intensity of her relationship with Edward: a passion so impossibly strong that it could never happen in ordinary life at all. She ponders whether she could have been so certain of her choice if she hadn’t lived through the agony of losing Edward, or whether instead she would have wavered in the face of Jake’s pain. But the knowledge is now etched deep.
Jake acknowledges that it’s too late now for Bella to be able to let go of Edward and be happy: Edward is like an addiction that she cannot live without. But he insists that if only the past could be undone, he would have been healthier for her, like the natural things of the earth: the sun and air. And Bella admits that this is the worst part for her as well. She can picture in excruciating detail how good their life together would have been, and she wants it as just as badly as he does. But she can’t have it, and never could have, once she fell in love with Edward. Her love for Edward is as deep and irrevocable as Sam’s love for Emily. She has never really had another choice.
Taking a deep breath, Jake then asks her about her plans to get married. Struggling to match his matter-of-fact tone, she admits that yes, she is marrying Edward: it is something that means a lot to him, so why not? Jake carefully agrees: it’s not such a big thing — in comparison. And he asks her how much longer she has left. She tells him it depends how quickly Alice can organize the wedding: she is putting off her transformation until afterwards. He asks her if she is scared and she says yes: afraid of the pain, afraid of what her suffering will do to Edward, afraid of saying goodbye to Charlie and Renee, afraid of becoming a bloodthirsty newborn. When she jokingly suggests the pack may have to eliminate her, Jake growls that he’ll hamstring anyone who tries.
Jake reminds Bella that he will always be waiting in the wings if she wants him. She amends: as long as she’s human. Maybe even afterwards, he insists. Bella wonders aloud when Jake will meet the right girl and imprint on her, but he sourly tells her not to get her hopes up; she realizes that she will probably be jealous when it happens. ÒLove you,Ó she tells him as she kisses him goodbye. ÒLove you more,Ó he replies.

"Part of being a Cullen is being meticulously responsible." ~ Alice to Bella
"Just give me some advance notice. Give me a chance to hug you goodbye." ~ Charlie to Bella
"I was the natural path your life would have taken…If the world was the way it was supposed to be, if there were no monsters and no magic." ~ Jake to Bella
He was my soul mate in that world — would have been my soul mate still if his claim had not been overshadowed by something stronger, something so strong that it could not exist in a rational world. ~ Bella about Jake.
"He’s like a drug for you Bella…I see that you can’t live without him now. It’s too late. But I would have been healthier for you. Not a drug; I would have been the air, the sun." ~ Jake about Edward.
"The clouds I can handle. But I can’t fight with an eclipse." ~ Jake to Bella
"Love you Jacob."
"Love you more." ~ Jacob and Bella
Important Information learned:
Bella is beginning to focus on exactly what it will be like to be a bloodthirsty newborn vampire, and it is a harrowing prospect.
The most likely reason that neither Aro nor Jane nor Edward can exercise their powers on Bella is that her mind is closed to them. Jasper’s and Alice’s gifts work on her because they don’t act upon the mind.
Bella has realized that there are things about being human that are unspeakably precious to her — things it will all but tear her in two to have to leave behind.
But the pain of having to say goodbye to Jake doesn’t make Bella waver in her choice. She knows she needs Edward more.
Jake is convinced that the life Bella could have had with him would have been better for her than life with Edward. But he recognizes that it’s too late for her now: she can’t live without Edward.
Bella agrees that if she’d never met Edward she and Jake would have been perfect for one another.
Bella is frightened of being changed into a vampire: of leaving behind her human life, of the transformation itself and of being a bloodthirsty newborn.
Jake will always be there waiting for Bella if she ever wants him back — even when she’s no longer human.

'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' doesn't hit theaters until next Wednesday, but tomorrow, Twi-hards across the country will have the chance to celebrate early with Moviefone's star-studded 'Twilight Night' event.
In 12 cities across the country, fans can view one or both of the previous 'Twilight' movies -- and Moviefone is literally rolling out the red carpet. Not only will there be stars from the movies there in person to shake your hand, we'll have "Twilight Night' photo booths where you can take souvenir photos, as if you're a part of 'Twilight' yourself. Check here for a list of the cities participating near you, the talent in attendance, and the movies shown at each.

Our 'Twilight Night' coverage kicks off with drop-ins from 'Twilight' co-stars Peter Facinelli, Edi Gathegi, Jackson Rathbone and Bronson Pelletier ... and that's just the beginning! Viewers will also be treated to special appearances from stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, trivia contests, interactive fan interviews, clips from 'Eclipse,' a chat with director David Slade, an exclusive behind- the -scenes look at the making of 'Eclipse' and more.

"You will see sex – Yes!" Breaking Dawn and Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told PEOPLE at the Eclipse premiere in L.A. Thursday night. "The relationship [between Pattinson's Edward and Stewart's Bella] does go all the way in the book, so in the movie, it will as well. You are going to see more skin in Breaking Dawn than you did in the other films."
But don't expect any XXX antics. "Will it be pornographic? – That, I do not know," Rosenberg said with a laugh. "I don't know if it has to be R-rated, but it has to be what the book is, which means more skin. ... I will definitely be writing more skin."

Chapter Name: Mirror
Page Numbers: 554-579
Date of Chapter: June 15th, 2006
Bella is stunned as she absorbs what has just taken place. She is frozen in place as she watches Edward dismember what remains of Victoria. Bella scrutinizes Edward’s every move, and is greatly relieved to find that he is unharmed. Seth and Edward finish gathering the body parts of the defeated vampires and set them on fire. As a purple pillar of smoke fills the sky, Seth and Edward share victorious congratulations.
Bella notices that Edward seems to be avoiding her. She thinks to herself that when he finally looks at her “his eyes were as wary as if I was another enemy.” Bella is still clinging to the rock in her broken hand as Edward approaches her. Bella is confused when she realizes that Edward thinks she is afraid of him and reassures him that she is not. She explains that she is just “freaking out” about the recent events and needs a few moments. As they hold each other, both Bella and Edward begin to relax.
Relieved that Edward and Seth are unharmed and that the fight is over, Bella recalls the complication Edward mentioned earlier. Before Edward can explain, he and Seth are rocked by something that is happening within the pack. Bella screams as both Edward and Seth fall to the ground in agony. Wincing, Edward says “Sam- help him” and then says they are “going to be okay”. A confused Bella soon realizes that Edward is speaking as a member of the pack. Edward suddenly jumps to his feet, taking Bella in his arms. After adamantly sending Seth home, Edward starts running with Bella back towards the clearing. He explains to Bella that Alice has had a vision of the Volturi. They will arrive in the clearing in a matter of moments. Edward reassures Bella that she is safe; Jane and the others are not here for her. They have been sent to clean up the mess the newborns have made.
As they approach the clearing, Bella asks Edward what happened to him and Seth earlier. Hesitant to upset Bella, Edward reluctantly tells her that Leah was attacked by a newborn. Edward explains that after the pack thought all of the vampires had been defeated, Leah found and went after a newborn on her own. Bella faints when she realizes that Jacob intervened and was hurt during the struggle.
As Edward assures her that Jacob will make a full recovery, Bella wakes. Carlisle also assures Bella that Jacob will be fine. As she stands, Bella notices that there are 8 vampires in the clearing. Jasper is guarding a newborn that is writhing in pain. Carlisle explains that he did not destroy her because she surrendered. Bella warily takes note of how wild and blood thirsty the newborn is. She wonders if she is staring at a mirror into her future.
Not a moment later, Jane and her entourage arrive. Jane is perplexed when she sees the newborn and quickly informs Carlisle that there are no second chances for those who break the rules, even those who don’t know that there are rules. Jane sends Aro’s regards and asks about the newborn army. She is surprised to learn that there were 20 vampires, including Victoria. Jane turns her attention to the newborn. As she tortures her with her wicked gaze, the newborn tells Jane that her name is Bree. Bree claims that she did not know her creator, she only knew Riley. Victoria was purposefully kept at a distance from the army. Bree goes on to say that she and the army were brought to forks under the assumption that the “yellow-eyes” were coming to get them. Riley told her that if they destroyed the coven, the city (and all the blood in it) would be theirs. He also gave them Bella’s scent, saying that she would be with the yellow-eyes and Bella’s presence would let them know that they had found the right coven. Edward’s temper flares when Bree discloses that Riley “said whoever got to her first could have her.”
Jane tells Carlisle that she is impressed that they were able to take out the army alone. She laughs when she learns that the reason for the attack was that Victoria held a grudge against Bella. She smiles her torturous smile at Bella, saying, “This one seems to bring out bizarrely strong reactions in our kind.” Edward is not pleased that Jane has tried (and again failed) to use her power on Bella.
As they leave, there is a curious exchange between Edward and Jane regarding the timing of the Volturi’s arrival. Bella notes that “Edward nodded once to himself, his suspicions confirmed.” Jane gives a not so friendly reminder that Caius will be interested to learn that Bella is still human. Alice quickly jumps in, assuring Jane that the date for the transformation is set. After ordering Felix to destroy Bree, Jane and the other guards make their exit.

Date of Chapter: Friday June 15
Bella and Edward wait in the tent as the fight begins in the clearing. Edward tries to distract Bella with conversation. He relays some of the fight to Bella through what he sees from Seth until Edward suddenly rips out of the tent and tells Seth to run.
Victoria and Riley approach the group to attack. Edward tries to talk to Riley to convince him that Victoria is using him, but it doesn’t work. Just as Riley tries to attack, Seth jumps out and attacks Riley first. While they’re fighting, Edward and Victoria battle it out. Bella decides a distraction is needed and tries to sacrifice herself like the 3rd wife she heard about from the Quileute legends. The distraction works and gives Seth a moment to dismember Riley. Edward and Victoria fight until Edward beheads Victoria.
Characters Involved: Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, Seth, Victoria, Riley
Characters Mentioned: Jacob Black, Sam Uley, Alice Cullen, Jasper Hale, Emmet Cullen
Places Visited: Tent, Forest, Cliffside
Edward to Bella ~ “That’s not what I meant. It’s just that he would have kissed you anyway—even if you hadn’t fallen for it—and now I don’t have an excuse to break his face. I would have really enjoyed that too.”
Edward and Bella ~ “You’re only human.” “That’s the most miserable defense I’ve ever heard.”
Bella to Edward ~ “First because you are bizarrely moral for a vampire.”
Edward to Victoria ~ “Look more closely, Victoria. Is he really so much like the monster James tracked across Siberia?”
Important Information learned:
Jacob is playing ‘dirty’ to win over Bella.
Victoria and Riley didn’t fall for the trap.
James tracked a werewolf like monster across Siberia.

In the new episode of MTV's “When I Was 17," which airs this Saturday, Jackson reveals his popular DJ name which helped him earn some extra cash. “When I was back home for the holidays, especially for the summer, I would DJ weddings, birthday parties, all types of events,” he starts to explain. “I was DJ Joyride. I don't know why — sounded cool at the time,” he laughed.
Although his friend, Jon, seemed to have an idea as to why he used the name, confirming, “because he was the only one who had a car.”
When Jackson wasn’t dropping beats, the actor and his friends were always trying to find clever ways to pull pranks on each other. “We were kind of the prank-war gods so to speak,” his friend Ben attested.
But Jackson recalls a time where the prank was turned on him and his friends. After realizing that their plastic goose, their “trophy piece,” had been stolen by their friend and replaced with a ransom note, Jackson and his pals fired back with a new trick.
“To get him back, we asked the girl that he liked to write him a note saying to meet him at the beach at a certain time," Jackson admitted. “He goes down to the beach. We all jump out of the bushes, hog-tie him, rip his shirt off, write 'goose thief' on his chest and make him walk to the dorm in his boxers, hands tied behind his back for all the world to see what a goose thief gets.”
"When I Was 17" — this week featuring Jackson Rathbone, Keri Hilson and Johnny Weir — airs Saturday at 11 a.m. on MTV.

Chapter name: Monster
Page numbers: 506-530
Date of Chapter: June 15, 2006
Bella wakes up in the sleeping bag sweating, still in Jacob’s arms. She meets Edward’s eyes and asks for help to get free from Jacob’s arms since he is still sleeping. Edward helps by opening the sleeping bag where Jacob falls out onto the cold ground. Jacob reacts by rolling on top of Bella, which causes Edward to tackle Jacob into the side of the tent. There is a stand off between the two with growling and snarling. Seth Clearwater is outside the tent growling and ready for a fight if it comes. Bella is able to calm both Edward and Jacob down.
Before he leaves the tent, Jacob says he didn’t sleep well because of Bella’s talking, but that it was still one of his best nights ever. Edward reassures Bella that he will stay with her during the fight and that the wolves and vampires will be fine. To keep their minds off of the fight, Bella asks Edward about his ten best nights. He says it was the night that she agreed to marry him, two nights ago. Bella expresses that she still doesn’t understand why the marriage is so important to Edward. Then Jacob, in werewolf form, lets out a howl of pain outside the tent.
Jacob has heard their conversation about marriage and has run into the woods. Edward, who knew Jacob was listening, says he never promised to fight fair. Bella feels horrible that she has caused Jacob so much pain and wants to talk to him. Edward offers to find Jacob for her and bring him back to the tent.
Bella waits for Edward and Jacob to come back. Bella looks to Seth for any idea if they are coming back soon. Seth in werewolf form doesn’t help Bella at all. She worries that maybe they have been caught in the fight with the Newborns. She worries that Edward and Jacob are so angry with each other over Bella and the incident in the tent that they are finally fighting each other.
Edward and Jacob return from the forest. Edward and Seth go into the forest to give Bella and Jacob some privacy to talk.
Bella tries to apologize to Jacob by saying that she will stay away from him so that she won’t hurt him anymore. Knowing Bella will feel badly for it, Jacob then puts the fault on himself and says that he will take himself out of the picture by letting himself get hurt in the Newborn fight. Bella begs Jacob not to do this, but he pushes further. He says he doesn’t want to stay out of the fight and end up being the best man at her wedding.
Jacob tells Bella that he loves her and she tells him that she loves him, too. She says she will do anything to keep him from purposefully hurting himself in the fight. He tells her to ask him the question. As soon as Bella realizes what Jacob wants, she asks him to kiss her. Jacob doesn’t believe her, and Bella asks him again. After a moments hesitation, Jacob realizes that she is serious and moves in quickly to kiss Bella.
At first, Bella is unresponsive to Jacob’s hard kiss, but she soon finds kissing Jacob back and enjoying it. Part of her wants to stop him, but another part of her is realizing that she likes the way he feels and the way he is kissing her. It is then that she discovers that Jacob is not just her friend, but that she is in love with him. She is in love with Jacob, but she loves Edward more. She knows this is going to hurt both Jacob and her. Then she envisions a life with Jacob, living in La Push and having a family. Bella can see herself with her parents and her friends having a human life and years passing with meaning. She even sees two children, but when they run into the forest, her vision ends. And then Bella feels a piece of her heart pull away from the whole.
Jacob stops the kiss first and tells Bella that he has to leave for the fight with the Newborns. She doesn’t want him to go, but he says he won’t be long. He kisses her again, this time more tenderly. He hugs her and tells her that this kiss should have been their first.
Characters involved: Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, Jacob Black, Seth Clearwater
Characters mentioned: Sam Uley, Alice Cullen, Charlie Swan, Renee Dwyer, Billy Black

“’But,’ Edward went on, ‘if I had been able to take your place last night, it would not have made the top ten of the best nights of my life. Dream about that.’”

“’And I can be your best man at the wedding?’”
~Jacob to Bella

Genealogists say the 24-year-old "Twilight" star is related to Vlad the Impaler, widely cited as the inspiration for the main character in Bram Stoker's "Dracula."
Researchers at Ancestry.com discovered that Pattinson and the Transylvanian leader (real name: Vlad III Dracula) are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson's distant cousins; Vlad the Impaler was their distant uncle.
"Tracing Pattinson's family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga," said Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com. "Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson's life — making his story just as supernatural as the one he's playing on screen."
Also connected to the prince's lineage and therefore to Dracula? Stephenie Meyer, the author of the "Twilight" series.
The latest big-screen installment in the popular vampire saga, "Eclipse," opens June 30.
The Twilight Saga cast is hitting the road for "TWILIGHT Night" - a red carpet celebration of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE on June 26! If you can't make it to any of these outdoor events held under the lunar eclipse you can watch it live at Moviefone.com

Chapter Name: Fire and Ice
Page Numbers: 487-505
Date of Chapter: June 14, 2006
Bella is in the tent with Edward, freezing from the storm, the night before the battle. Jacob is outside the tent and very concerned about Bella freezing. Jacob comes into the tent and offers to be Bella’s “space heater” and while Edward isn’t happy about it, he knows there is no other choice. Jacob crawls into the sleeping bag beside Bella and she began to thaw. Edward admits he is jealous that Jacob can warm Bella and he can’t.
As Bella thaws she asks Jacob why he is so much furrier than the other wolves. He responds because his hair is longer and only after Edward reads it in his mind adds because he thought Bella liked him better with longer hair. Bella begins to fall asleep while the conversation continues around her. Edward is frustrated by Jacob’s thoughts about being so close to Bella. The two start a conversation on jealousy and Bella’s choice. Edward admits that the jealousy at this point is eating at him so much he can barely control his voice and that he gets even more worries when she is away from him. Edward also admits that he thinks about Jacob’s place in Bella’s life often and that he guesses Bella thinks about Jacob often, especially when she is quiet.
The conversation continues by Jacob saying Bella is in love with him too even though she doesn’t know it, and Edward doesn’t respond. As the wind rips at the tent again, Jacob holds Bella tighter and Edward thanks him for keeping her warm. Jacob calls Edward on his jealousy and admits he doesn’t have as much patience as Edward. Edward says that he decided to play the patient nice guy because it was hurting Bella to make her choose, and that there was a little fear that Bella may not choose him. Jacob asks Edward what it is like to lose Bella and he responds by saying it is hard to talk about the two times he thought he lost her. First when he left and it was almost bearable, although he would have come back to check on her and would have stayed because she was unhappy. The second was when he though she had died. There are no words to describe that feeling, although he understands that is how Jacob will feel when she is changed.
Jacob reminds Edward that he left so Bella could be human. Edward explains that from the time he realized he loved Bella there were only 4 options. First, that she didn’t feel as strongly about him and moved on although he never would. Bella made a permanent change in him. Second, was Edward’s original choice to stay with her throughout her human life and when she died he would find a way to die too. But then the danger of his world hung over her and he feared he wouldn’t get his sixty or seventy years with her. Edward admits that he chose option three and it was the worst mistake of his very long life. Leaving Bella did nothing but make things worse and almost got them both killed. The only option left was option four. Edward has been trying to delay her although she is persistent and fears getting older. Jacob prefers option one.
Jacob admits that he can see that Edward loves Bella. He also tells Edward that if he had waited another six months to return, he would have found her happy because he had a plan. Edward agrees that it might have worked, it was a well thought out plan. Jacob asks Edward to give him a year to try and make her happy. He even asks Edward if he is unselfish enough to have considered Jacob being better for Bella. Edward admits that he even had Alice look into the future, but she can’t see Jacob. He does point out that if Bella chose Jacob he would always be waiting in the wings for when Jacob imprinted and would have to leave Bella. Edward and Jacob agree that the truce is over at first light. Edward begins to hum Bella’s lullaby in order to drown out Jacob’s thoughts.

With her on-screen pixie-cut wig nowhere in sight, Green’s long, newly lightened locks cascade about her face as she considers what lies beyond her star-making stint in the mega-present Twilight films. The Eclipse actress exudes so much poised confidence and eagerness to dive into the next phase of her career that you can’t help but wonder if she, like the prescient Alice, has some tantalizing foreknowledge of momentous events around the corner.
Already a favorite of fashion magazines, boy bloggers and, of course, the Twihards, Greene talks to us about lending Alice some Ashley-ness, the fan encounters that mean the most to her, and gives us a glimpse of the game plan after the sun sets on the film franchise. Frankly, we’re inclined to believe her vision.
Fandango: I remember back when we met for the first Twilight film, and you talking about loving the character and doing her justice for the fans. How much of the character is yours now, three films in?
Ashley Greene: In general I always try to break characters down in the most basic form, being a human being – or having human characteristics, in Alice's case. So if I've experienced anything in my life that is similar to them, I try to connect to that and I really kind of become this character.
With Alice, I definitely tried to stay optimistic like she does. And of course I love fashion! She loves fashion. For the family aspect of it, I'm extremely close to my family, as is she. So that was an easy connection. It wasn't that big of a stretch. If someone messes with Alice's family she'll go to bat for them, and I'm the same way for my family.
Fandango: With everything good that's come from Twilight's success, do you feel like you'll have to overcome the popularity of the movies, to some degree, to establish your own cachet?
Greene:I will say that that will be the only kind of downfall – not being a part of Twilight, but just the instant fame, the “just out of water” fame. Everyone now knows who we are, but they only know this one thing that we can do. And so everyone is going, “Okay, is this the flavor of the week, or is this girl serious and is she here to stay?” I think, though, I wouldn't trade it for anything. For the next five years I'd say that I do have something to prove. I'm going to have fun doing it.
Fandango: So how do you think you’ll “prove” yourself?
Greene: I've taken a couple of roles already that are going to come out in the next year and they're all very different. I just did a role in this movie called Butter. It's a comedy and the cast was incredible. I was so terrified and nervous, but that's the exciting part about it – and if you're not then something is wrong! Then I did a thriller called The Apparition, and that was my first studio film so I put a lot into that. I kind of pushed my limits a bit with it emotionally. I'm excited to see that. It's a lot of work, but I'm very, very thankful.
Fandango: What sides of yourself are you looking forward to showing as an actress? Wild Apatow-style comedy, or something dramatic where you cry for half a movie?
Greene: I want to do it all! I definitely really want to do a kick-ass film. I'd love to do like a Tarantino-style film, very stylized. Comedy is something that I'm definitely looking to get into. I had a little taste of it and I do intend on going to classes for it because I think it's a different muscle, and it's hard to find female comedians.
Fandango: Especially beautiful ones…
Greene: You've got, like, Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz and that's it. There are a couple more, but that would definitely be something I'd want, to be a part of that comedy world.
Fandango: Did you have a crystal-clear moment of clarity, when you knew acting is what you wanted to do?
Greene:I remember my first acting class: I was like, “That's it.” If I know that I want to do something then I'm going to do it and there's no stopping me, whether it’s if I want to take a movie part or don’t, or eat sushi for lunch or don't. There's always a very clear goal. Once I figure out what I want that's it. I had that moment when I was, I think, 15.
Fandango: Is there anything you loved when you were younger that helps you identify with the diehard Twilight fans?
Greene: No – which is why I appreciate them so much. When I see the passion that people feel for this, it's incredible. I would say that going to the premieres is just overwhelming sometimes. You don't get used to something like that. It's contagious and I get butterflies in my stomach and I get excited because they're so excited. I think it makes me realize just how lucky we are, because I didn't have that growing up as a kid, to be that passionate for something. So the fact that Stephenie Meyer and Summit and all of us collectively were able to create something that evokes that kind of emotion is kind of awesome.
Fandango: Everyone’s had crazy fan-encounter stories. But do you also have a particularly special one where someone really impacted you?
Greene: Yeah. There's one fan in particular who I've apparently inspired, and I've met her, I think, three times now. And she made me a scrapbook of my career and my life in Hollywood, which was really special to me. Especially now during this saga –this is a time of my life that I don't think I'm ever going to forget, and I love that I now have this memory book that someone took the time to create for me. So that was really special to me. Then she wrote this letter with it and she was very sweet. It was very incredible that she did that!
Fandango: What do you think about you and your character having that kind of impact?
Greene: It's important to me that I'm very actively trying to be involved in young girls’ lives, because I think it's important for them to know what they can do, what they can achieve. Some people don't have people telling them that. My family was very supportive. Growing up my whole life, my mom was telling me how incredible and special I was and that I was going to change the world. I think it's important for girls to know that they can change the world, that they do have an impact.
Fandango: Is showbiz overwhelming sometimes?
Greene: I'm an actor, so sometimes there are moments where I think about everything that's happening and I want to cry. I'm doing what I love and I will be doing it for a very, very long time – and it's amazing. A lot of people don't get to do that.

Chapter Name: Trails
Page Numbers: 461-486
Date of Chapter: June 14th, 2006
As She and Edward prepare to “go camping”, Bella is confronted by a pouting Alice regarding the plans for a Vegas wedding. Alice’s mood lifts when she has a vision of Bella giving in and allowing her to be in charge of the wedding. Bella and Edward pack a lot of gear for the trip as Alice predicts the weather will be stormy.
When Bella and Edward get to the woods, they split up so that Bella can leave her scent for the newborns to pick up. While leaving the trail, Bella and Edward discuss Alice’s plans for the wedding. Edward lifts the mood by suggesting that Emmett get his clerical license and read their vows. Towards the end of the clearing, Bella falls and cuts her palm. She warns Edward to stay away while she cleans up the blood. When he ignores her warning, Bella is surprised to learn that, while she still smells the same to him, Edward is no longer tempted by the scent of Bella’s blood. He explains that the thought of losing her to death was “a very educational experience” and that his reactions have since changed. Edward bandages Bella’s hand for her.
To Bella’s surprise, a human rather than werewolf Jacob joins them in the clearing and he and Edward look at the map to determine where they will all meet up. None of them seem too excited about working together during the next step of the plan, but with nine miles to trek before reaching the campsite, they get going anyway.
Jacob picks Bella up and begins to run through the woods in the direction of the camp. He notices “the rock” Edward has added to Bella’s bracelet. Before Bella can put two and two together that the heart charm is a diamond, Jake interrupts her thoughts by mentioning that it has been a while since she has been down to La Push. This leads to a conversation about the last time she visited Jacob and that she was still upset by his behavior. They bicker about the kiss and Jacob hypothesizes that Bella likes him better in wolf form because she is attracted to him in his human form. Bella denies the accusation, saying that if she prefers him as a wolf it is only because he is unable to speak.
Bella admits that she has done something “bad” and tells Jake that she has asked Edward to stay behind with her and not fight the newborns. She confides in him her guilt and tells him that she’ll feel responsible for any injuries or losses due to his absence. She says that while she couldn’t stand to lose any of them, she is the most afraid of losing Edward. Jacob concedes that Bella loves Edward, but thinks it is possible to love more than one person at the same time. While Jake doesn’t deny that he would not stay out of the fight if Bella were to ask him, he argues that Edward staying behind at Bella’s request does not mean that he loves her more than Jake does.
Bella asks Jake about his role in the pack. Jake admits that he should be the Alpha, but that he feels it is really Sam’s place to be chief. He says that while he has come to terms with being a werewolf, at first it felt as though he was “being drafted into a war you didn’t know existed”.
Bella is relieved when Jake announces that they are near the camp, but unhappy when she learns that he will be sticking around overnight. Edward, who has already set up camp and is pacing around waiting, rushes to Bella’s side and gives Jake a sincere thank you for delivering Bella safely to the campsite. As the storm picks up, Bella and Edward head for the shelter of the tent and Jake heads off to the forest to change into wolf form and check in with the pack.

Edward has made arrangements for Bella and him to be alone at the house. He just wants her to relax. Bella has decided there is something she wants before she is changed but is nervous about talking it over with Edward.
Bella arrives at the house and is greeted with several kisses from Edward who is excited about giving Bella a hand me down present. Edward gives Bella a “crystal” heart that reminds her of him for being hard and sparkly. Edward places the charm on the bracelet that Jacob gave her.
Bella decides to negotiate with Edward. She tells him that she wants him before she is changed and Edward doesn’t quite understand her meaning until she tries to take his clothes off. Edward refuses to compromise, afraid he would hurt her. Bella feels dejected. She pleads with Edward that she just wants to try. The pleading breaks Edward’s resolve and he offers a new compromise. He is willing to try but only after they are married. Bella realizes that the reason Edward wants to wait is to protect her virtue, which she finds very funny. Edward also realizes that he can use her hormones to speed up the marriage process.
