Reading Breaking Dawn: Chapter 8 (Waiting For The Damn Fight To Start Already)

May 9th, 2009 at 12:15 am by Kaleb Nation

The song for this chapter is Mr. Brightside by PlayRadioPlay

I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to be feeling well! Even though it’s only really been a few days, I’m one of those people who has to be doing something all the time or else feels they’ve lost touch with everything, and thus being sick in bed for nearly a week is quite a depressing time for me. Not only am I now feeling better, but with only one more final to go, a few months of break from school is just around the corner for me. And what a summer break it shall be!

With what could perhaps be the longest chapter title in Twilight Saga history, we once again enter into that strange brain of Jacob Black. I love the fact that I get to delve into Jacob’s head a bit. Many people have probably noticed how much Jacob’s immaturity irks me, sometimes to the point of paragraphs of rants detailing exactly why he annoys me and how I think he should evict himself headfirst off the nearest cliff (alright not quite that bad). Still, I welcome the chance to get to know him more. Like The Phantom in his opera, there are some characters who seem quite despicable at first, but after I get to know them my opinions change dramatically. We shall see if something similar happens with Mr. Black.

These werewolves sure like to fight. I feel like my grandmother waggling a finger at them and going

tsk-tsk

as they punch and lunge at each other over hardly more than a bag of chips and a chair. Due to this behavior, there is an almost constant theme of things being smashed throughout the beginning of this chapter, such as:

“You better’ve brought those with you.” CRUNCH.

He heard where I was going and shoved the bag behind his back. CRUNCH.

Maybe he’d smashed her like a bag of chips in his drive to get some? (CRUNCH.)

His eyes shifted to the TV. I lunged. His nose made a very satisfying CRUNCH.

Jacob obviously isn’t in love with the idea of imprinting either. It leads me to wonder if this is because he didn’t actually imprint on Bella, and might have known all along that because of this she couldn’t have really been his? I’ve seen this point argued before and I know there is a very specific reason why this doesn’t matter, but I’ve always wondered why Jacob pursued Bella so strongly when he hadn’t imprinted on her. With a lack of imprinting, his love for her wouldn’t actually be the best love for either of them — and as a very unsettling thought, he might imprint on someone else in the future and leave Bella behind. It’s always confused me. Did Jacob think that after time he would imprint on Bella? Again this could be my faulty memory fooling me when the reason for this was made obvious volumes ago, and everyone on Team Jacob is laughing uproariously at my expense.

Jacob is still very concerned for Bella, and it’s obvious that even after the wedding, he still isn’t giving up on that tiny bit of hope she’ll realize what she is doing and come back to him. Because, everyone knows it is far safer being with a werewolf than a vampire. That point aside, his brooding has surely gotten quite painful, especially imagining Bella and Edward together now. I mean, in most relationships, there are months between breaking up with someone and then her getting married to someone else, which means time away from each other to heal. Jacob hasn’t gotten that, because he never gave up, even to the day of the wedding. It would be misery if the girl I loved went off and got married to someone else, leaving me with little besides some guy sitting on my couch…watching my television…eating my chips.

Mr. Black is really a killjoy too, by the way. I’m laughing immensely that his first reaction to Paul’s guffaw is considering breaking his nose again. He’s like the Burgermeister Meisterburger, who tripped on one toy and then decided to burn the lot in a fit of rage.

Disregarding what could have just been my most obscure movie reference ever, the conversation with Quil has me wondering if Jacob has ever thought he actually did imprint on Bella? He says he doesn’t see any other girl, and he seems so sure that they are meant to be together. He might know differently, but I wonder if it has ever made him really think. It would be very difficult for him if he had imprinted on her, when she just married Edward Cullen. If imprinting really is something they can’t control, Jacob might actually be in a better position now if he doesn’t imprint on her, because otherwise it could get very messy.

With the news of Bella’s return to Forks, there seems to be some decision-making going on. The werewolves aren’t quite up to a full-out battle, but Jacob Black is ready to take on the Cullens all by himself. One wolf against a coven of vampires? Oh yes Jacob, you’re really going to survive that one. Still, with all his determination to get revenge for what he believes is Bella’s death, there’s something akin to a miniature war that might be about to happen.

QUESTION FOR THE COMMENTS: If Jacob HAD imprinted on Bella, how do you think the story would have changed? Do you think Bella would have still married Edward? Would Edward have fought Jacob or would he have let her go?

    Yei! first one! lol, I loved Jacob´s point of view, it was a nice change, although I would love to read what happened when Bella arrived to the airport and protected her child with Rose….it should be interesting to read…LOVE YOU Kaleb!

  2. kristen

    theres a longer chapter name LOL. if jacob impritedon bella EVERYTHING would have been different. i think bella would have ended up with jacob and edward wouldnt have faught jacob cuz he would understand she's completely untouchable in jacobs arms. but she probly would have still been intreged by edward. who knows what would have happened?

  3. stephula

    i hope it would be the same.
    it would suck big time if it wasn't.

  4. Stef

    i don't think that bella would have changed her mind even if jacob had imprinted on her.
    they say it's hard to ignore that kind of devotion, but those imprintees never had edward's level of devotion fixed on them. maybe for someone like claire, who's grown up with a werewolf around, it would have been a no-brainer. but i think that bella still would have chosen edward and jacob would have just had a harder time accepting it all.
    maybe that's just my wishful thinking, but.. /shrug.

  5. Katie

    hahh just wanted to say OMG BURGERMISTER ahahah

    that is my favortie holiday movie of all time and probably the best referance everrrr

  6. Stacie.Make.Do

    “…otherwise it could get very messy.” Could? Just wait…it will be messy enough.
    As for Jacob imprinting on Bella, I don't think even imprinting at this stage could make him much more devoted to her and she still chose Edward, so I would see the story remaining nearly the same (at this point) except with possibly even more pain for both Jacob and Bella.

    Burgermeister? HAHAHA!!! Love that.

  7. Faightys

    Ok, I believe discovering part of Jakes mind was an incredebly part of the whole saga. I enjoyed it so much. Is one of the reasons i am Team switzerland when it comes to who Bella should choose. Cause i am like OME everysingle time i just hear the perfect man´s name. So if i have to choose between Edward and Jacob i would choose the God absolutely.
    I think if Jacob had imprint on Bella, Jake and Bella would end up together no doubt. But she would always feel the guilt, like Sam whit Leah; she would have never forgot herself. And Edward´s life would have been total missery… and nun of us would like that… If he only knew there would have been half a planet of woman interested in his well being… But oh well it is set on stone. By the way LOVE YOU KALEB… Catch you tomorrow in the BLOG you rock!!!!!!!!!

  8. Flweep

    I think Edward would have fought Jacob if Bella didn't want Jacob.
    And I'm not so sure if Bella would still marry Edward..
    But the story would be better if she didn't (: HA.

  9. Holly

    I love Jacobs Chapter Names
    As much as I love Bella and Edward together.I think that if Jacob had imprinted on Bella it would have turned out differently. Imprinters and Imprintees are absulotley meant to be together, look at Emily and Sam and the stuff they went through with Leah and Sam losing control yet they are still together. Edward would have let Bella go if she wanted to be with Jacob. It would have really hurt him but he wants her happy and if he had to be apart from her for that to happen he would have done that.

  10. Elise

    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella, that would have meant she was his true love. Bella would have been designed for Jacob, in a way. They would have been together.
    If Bella was Jacob's true love, she would have felt more strongly about Jacob than Edward… and Edward, being the gentleman, would have let her go. Probably. In theory.

    … and then all the screaming fangirls would have swooped in and gone 'PICK ME, EDWARD!'

    … and then Edward would go to the Volturi begging for death once again.

    Yeah.

  11. Mal

    In my head, there wasn't even a possibility of Jacob imprinting on Bella. I am Team Edward all the way, so I would rather not picture Jacob and Bella being together. I think Bella would've married Edward anyway and Edward would've fought if he had to, to win Bella back.

    btw, I love Jacob's chapter titles. They are so funny. :P

    Keep reading Kaleb!

  12. Mylles

    well i dont know how it would end i think that if edward had to he would let bella go. he loves her that much. but if that happened… ruin the whole and i mean whole story

  13. Euphrasie

    The imprinting business definitely gets messy. From my understanding, Jacob pursued Bella so strongly, despite not imprinting, because he thought he was never going to imprint. The werewolf lore they knew indicated that imprinting was actually fairly rare. Not all, or even most, werewolves would ever imprint. They were just on their own.

  14. Steph

    Okay, not too late this time. Phew.

    Oh, jeez. Nice version of Mr Brightside. It sounds vaguely like Hellogoodbye.

    Don't you worry, the chapter titles get much, much longer. Jacob's POV chapter titles are the best. How cool was the Preface?

    Well, had he imprinted, it would have to have been the first time he saw her after phasing. So… that time when she went to his house to confront him, right? Thing is, Edward was gone. So, had he imprinted, there wouldn't have been that fight, she would've been told everything, and, more likely than not, Edward would have returned to Forks only to either leave again or torture himself with the idea that he has to hang around to protect her from… everything.

    But say he didn't imprint on her then. Let's consider the possible outcome of the Cullens never leaving and him imprinting on her. I think Edward would know he should let her go, but neither would want to. Bella would indeed love Jake more if she was his imprint, but she would still love Edward and be dating him at that moment. And then there's Edward. Lots of people are saying that he would let her go, or that he would fight for her, but, really, I just can't choose. And that's the issue here. He is as selfish as he claims, despite Bella's disputes, so I don't know if he could give her up. However, he values her happiness more than his own. Still, it's fairly even. On the plus side, there is no wrong or right. Nothing is out of character, because, as I've mentioned in a past comment, people act out of character, making any and all actions in character.

    That took me a long time. I'm off to watch Futurama.

  15. Carrie

    I knew something was odd when Jacob didn't imprint on Bella. If Jacob would have imprinted on Bella, the story would not have changed. I don't believe the imprint would have changed Bella's love for Edward. Bella was in love with Edward even though he left her. That's why she kept hearing Edward's voice and continued to do dangerous stunts in order to continue to hear Edward. Bella was interested in Edward from day one. Edward was hooked at first scent.

    IF Jacob did imprint and Bella was in love with Jacob, Edward would not have fought Jacob for Bella. Edward just wanted Bella to be happy.

  16. Claudia

    It's hard to say what would happen.
    It's said that it would be nearly impossible to ignore the attention and devotion of an imprinting werewolf, but Edward is already completely devoted to her in much the same way, and maybe even more, considering that he wasn't forced into it by imprinting. If Jacob had imprinted on Bella after Edward leaves, it might have made her even more confused and depressed. She feels she will always love Edward, no matter what, she's still healing, she may never heal. The story doesn't go into that. She might not have been able to take the affection that Jacob gives, compared to the affection she lost. I don't think she would be completely satisfied.

    Edward told Bella that he would have had to come back at some point. He wasn't strong enough to stay away for much longer. If he had seen her with Jacob and she still wasn't completely happy, he would have given her the option. I don't think she would have refused him. She could never forget him.

    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella, Edward would do what Bella wanted. If she decided on Jacob, he would understand. As he said, he would have stayed just close enough, and if she decided she had made a mistake, he would come back.

    If she decided on Edward, I'm sure there would be a fight, mostly Jacob, Edward reluctantly. Bella would try to get between them. She loves them both and doesn't want either of them to get hurt or die.
    Edward want's to defend Bella, but he can't hurt Jacob without hurting her as well. Edward would be stuck in a very difficult situation. Edward and Bella could run away but Jacob would follow them.

    All in all, I can't think of anything good to say and I didn't really give a definitive answer to anything. Maybe there isn't one.
    I'd just like to say that I'm happy that Jacob didn't imprint on Bella.
    Firstly (is that a word?) because I'm a big Team Edwarder.
    Secondly, look at what could happen!

  17. Claudia

    Yeah,

    “Life sucks and then you die,
    I should be so lucky.”

    I hope I got that one right, it was off the top of my head.

  18. (The)Victoria(Poet)

    You see, Jacob CAN'T imprint on Bella, because she's “imprinted” on Edward, like, they're meant for each other. But if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, that would mean that love between Bella and Edward isn't so true… Well that's what *I* think.
    Sometimes I'm so mad at Jacob it makes me cry. :D D

  19. Shaddin

    Edward and Bella are meant to be together. Soulmates for life. Their love is exactly like imprinting, or maybe even stronger. If he were to imprint on her, all that would happen is that Jake would fight harder, but Bella's love with Edward would be too strong for her to end up with him.

  20. Shaddin

    She might love Jacob more than she did at first, but not more than she loves Edward. Their love is stronger than anyone else's.

  21. Steph

    I believe it was, “Yeah, I should be so lucky.” I have it written on my pencil case. No idea who wrote it, though. :D

  22. Steph

    But the rules change with imprinting. You can't love anyone more than your imprint. Even a vampire. ;)

  23. Mattie

    I think if Jacob had imprinted on Bella then she would have still married Edward. the difference i believe is that maybe Jacob would have been quieter about her choosing Edward. When someone imprints didnt JAcob say they jsut want them to be happy and they would be whatever that person needed…friend…father figure…lover etc. If he knew she would be happy only with Edward maybe he would have tried harder to be just her friend becuase otherwise she would be unhappy and doesn't that go against what imprinting does to the werewolf?

  24. Kpucine

    I think the story would have totally changed. Even if Bella and Edward are meant to be together (and even if I'm 100% Team Edward), I don't think Bella would have married Edward. Because as it is said in New Moon, or maybe in Eclipse (I can't actually remember, shame on me), girls who have been imprinted by one of the wolf can't barely resist to such a level of devotion. Moreover, Bella does have feelings for Jacob, right? I believe the reason she doesn't end up with Jacob is that this latter didn't imprint on her.
    Concerning Edward's reaction, he said many times before that as long as Bella needed him, he would stay with her. He said too that if Bella decided to choose Jacob, he would agree to this choice. So Edward wouldn't have fought. He would have let her because he loves her. Actually, the situation would have been reversed: Edward would have suffered (and probably killed himself), but he wouldn't have been as immature as Jacob (;

    -Kpucine

    P.S: sorry for my English, as usual (:

  25. georgia

    If Jake had imprinted on Bella it would be quite interesting. I believe Bella would fall in love with Jacob as well.
    Some people are saying that Edward wouldn't try to win back Bella. I think he would. He always states that he is selfish at heart. If Edward is what he says he is, he would try to win Bella back. I wouldn't like the idea of my mortal enemy being with the girl who he is in love with.

  26. georgia

    I have to say I disagree with that.

    If Jacob imprinted his love for Bella would be even stronger than it is now.
    He would be totally against Edward marrying Bella and changing her. Having his imprintee being turned into his mortal enemy doesn't sound like something Jake would accept easily.

    Also, if he did imprint Jacob would know that he can make her happy. She would be Jacob's life. There's no way that Edward could compete with the strength of an imprint's love. Jacob would do everything he could to make Bella happy and he would succeed.

    I'm pretty sure that Bella wouldn't want a best friend alone from Jacob. I mean she already loved him in Eclipse when he had not imprinted on her. Like it is said it's hard to resist that level of adoration. Whether she wanted to or not she would begin to fall in love with Jacob and would want Jake to reciprocate the feelings.

  27. Heather

    If Jacob would have imprinted on Bella, it would have been after he first changed into a werewolf. In that case, he wouldn't have been able to be so mean when Bella came looking for him.
    If he did imprint then, I imagine Bella would have fallen for such devotedness. But there would still be that Edward-void. Things would be wayy too sticky and complicated. Jacob imprinting on Bella would have been a HORRIBLE idea.
    But, anyway, it's all moot. Jacob will never imprint of Bella, now. If he didn't imprint before, there is no way he will imprint now…

  28. Marie

    EEWWWWW!!!!
    If Jacob imprinted on Bella that would kill the book!! Dont get me wrong i love Jacob but i think the story would end after that. Edward would hurt anything that Bella loves — hes to nice, he would let it be. he wouldn't show Bella that it killed him to let her go but hes not the type of person that would distory her happiness — he cares to much about her.
    BBBUUUUUTTTTT. . . . . . . .
    i think it could go both ways! Bella cant live without Edward, Her life is all about him and i dont think so would give that up soo easy. she cant be with both of them but i think she would try! she CAN live without Jacob but she CANT live without Edward! But imprinting is a powerful thing so. . . . i think if could go both ways but i dont want it to go Jacobs!

  29. tina

    I think the chapter titles in this part of the book are fabulous!! Made me like Jake again – to see his weird sense of humor.

    And Mr. Brightsides is the perfect song for this chapter!!!

    Now – the question…I don't think Jake could imprint on Bella. She had already been 'imprinted' on by a vampire (well, the vampire equivalent of an imprint…). She was already someone else's other half, whether they were together or not. Fate was being kind to Jacob!

    I really can't wait to see your reaction to the next chapter!!! Things get really interesting. The book gets decidedly darker in tone from here thru Jake's POV.

    Oh, and I'm glad you are feeling better!! I just got over my own case of not-the-swine-flu!! I feel for you!

  30. Em

    If Jacob imprinted on Bella… well, it wouldn't happen. Because all the other werewolves imprinted on people from the Quileute tribe, to “make stronger werewolves”. If we are looking at this without the imprinting, Jacob never would have gotten to know Bella, or fallen in love with her, had not Edward left Bella. And Bella wouldn't have needed Jacob's support when Edward left her, unless she was unalterably connected to Edward. So, Jacob should have never hoped. Bella made her choice, subconsciously, the day Edward left her.

  31. McKenzie

    Its impossible for me to answer this question objectively because I know how everything works out.

    BTW wasn't that song originally done by the killers? I like the killers one better, and I was confused as to why it was done by someone else.

  32. Hannah

    Well, your still disregarding one fact.

    Bella loves Edward with almost every fiber in her being. Choosing between Edward and Jacob would be obvious.

    The imprinting thing could be different. Take example of the werewolf who imprinted on a 2 year old. He loves claire just like a little sister, or best friend. Maybe Jacob (if he imprinted on Bella) would learn to except that and be her best friend like Bella hoped for in the first place. By the time for Jacob to become a werewolf and imprint, it would have already been too late.

    Also, it would ruin the end of the story. :)

    THANK YOU STEPHENIE MEYER!

  33. Paige

    Oh the joys of Jacob! Personally, this part dragged on to me. I guess it's cuz I hate Jacob.
    Anywho…
    Bella would probably be with Jacob if he had imprinted on her. Edward would probably wanna kick his butt! LOL! Yeah… Jacob and Bella do NOT belong together! Of course, that's just my opinion.

  34. TeamBranFan-Ethan

    Kaleb, there is even a LONGER chapter….LOL!

    I think that Jacob would think that Bella, IS, his true love for the rest of his life. But still, I think he would have to question the fact if he REALLY loves her. Yes, it probably make a big impact on the saga. I don't think edward would fight him. Killing him or fighting him would just make Bella depressed…AGAIN FOR THE 4TH TIME! LOL. And she wouldn't want to be with edward because of that fact, because bella loves jacob as a friend, and nothing more will change it.

  35. Anna

    I don't really think there could be an 'if Jake imprinted on Bella' thing because imprinting means you're meant to be with someone. And although I love Jake, He's not meant to be with Bella. 'cos if he was, Bella would be meant to be with him. And she's niot, 'cos her and Ed are meant to be together…
    That's an amazingly strange theory considering that I don't believe in fate…

  36. Anna_Loves_TWILIGHT

    Im going to be doing some quoting from Eclipse, but I dont have my book with me, so excuse any mistakes, please.

    If Jacob were to have imprinted on Bella, she still would have been with Edward. My first reason is, even when Bella'd never ever heard of imprinting or werewolves or supernatural soulmates for life or all that nonsensical, confuzzling wonderfulness, and all she knew was that Jacob was in love with her and Edward wasn't there, she didn't want to be in love with him, didn't want to be his friend that way. Do you really think that if she found out he loved her because he was a werewolf, it would change he perspective of willingness to abandon Edward, even if Edward was no longer in her life? The second reason is because of these quotes here:

    “It is strange to observe the way Sam is tied to his Emily, or I should say her Sam. It's nearly as powerful as the way I feel about you.” Edward Cullen to Bella Swan, Eclipse

    “I supposed it was silly for me to imagine that Sam had never loved anyone before Emily. It was just that I'd seen Sam with Emily, and I couldn't imagine him with someone else. The way he looked at her… well it reminded me of a look I'd seen sometimes in Edward's eyes – when he was looking at me.” Bella Swan, Eclipse.

    You see, Edward loves Bella as very much as an imprinted werewolf loves his imprintee. More than that, even. And so it would be a moot point for Bella, because then she would have two equally-in-love-with-her options to choose from. So really not much would change. And also, if Jake was to imprint on her, he would and would have to give her what she wanted and let her choose who she wanted, and he would not be able to fight it because doing so would then hurt her, and his entire being would have shied away from that so powerfully that he would rater die than hurt her, whether purposely or accidentally. And I would also like to remind you people that imprinting is not always romantic.

    Now, on to the Edward fighting Jacob thing. He would have let her go if she chose Jacob. Read this conversation from Eclipse:

    JACOB: What would you do if she changed her mind?

    EDWARD: I don't know.

    JACOB: Would you try to kill me?

    EDWARD: No.

    JACOB: Why not?

    EDWARD: Do you really think I would hurt he that way?

    JACOB: Yeah, you're right. I know that's right but sometimes..

    EDWARD: Sometimes it's an entriguing idea.

    JACOB: Exactly.
    ——————————————————————-Skip Some Time
    JACOB: And if she were to decide that she wanted me? Okay, it's a long shot, I'll give you that.

    EDWARD: I would let her go.

    JACOB: Just like that?

    EDWARD: In the sense that I would never show her how hard it was for me, yes.

    END OF CONVO

    So there. I hsve proved my points, and now I will end this extremfully (is that a word? oh well, it is now) long post.

  37. Anna_Loves_TWILIGHT

    wow there were a lot of mistakes in that post. hope you people can figure out what i meant to say!

  38. Krystina

    I think that if Jacob had imprinted with Bella everything would have been different. Bella and Jacob would have had the bond between them that Bella and Edward have. But Jacob did not imprint on Bella because the two of them do not have a love that strong. I think that Jacob does love Bella, and just becuase he didn't imprint on her doen't change that fact. Since not all of the werewolves imprint, I do not think that he was really counting on it to find his soul mate, and Bella was as close to a soul mate as he could find, so he went for it. And back to Edward, I think that he would have let Bella go. He loves her so much that I believe he would have let her go if that was what she wanted.

  39. Abby

    I think if Jacob HAD imprinted on Bella, Bella would again be upset about hurting someone… but I think Edward would give her over because he only cares about her safety and happiness. Edward is not one to start a fight over Bella when he thinks Jacob may be better for her. I would, of course, dislike that cause im very team Edward.

  40. Sarah

    I think that part of Jocob's frustration is that he is utterly confused by the fact that he hasn't imprinted on Bella. He is so sure of his love for her, which is fueled by his hate for Edward, that he wonders why he hasn't imprinted. This confusion leads to doubt in his mind, because he can't deny the contradiction in this situation with Bella.

    Sometimes, people have to realize that life requires patience. Understanding and happiness doesn't always come right away. Just take Edward as an example, he has waited over 100 years to find his true love.

  41. Mia C.

    As much as I like Jacob as a character, I never thought he was right for Bella, he could certainly do better than her. And if he WAS meant to be with her, he would have imprinted on her. Simple as that.

    Burgermeister Meisterburger! Now I have the urge to watch Christmas specials.

    Also, I love your song choice, but why the strange remix version? The original by The Killers is much better :D

  42. Lily Giddings

    Jacob never imprinted on Bella. As has already been pointed out, he would have imprinted the first time he saw her after he phased for the first time. Also, Jacob has tried to imprint on Bella, so that maybe he would have a better chance of changing her mind about becoming a vampire, but obviously it's not something he has control over.

    I don't really know how the story would be different if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, other than he wouldn't make her so angry most of the time. The books say over and over again that the werewolf becomes whatever the object of his imprinting needs at the time. So, when Bella just wants Jacob to be her friend, he would be nothing but a friend. He wouldn't insult the vampires, he wouldn't try to kiss Bella when she doesn't want him to, and he wouldn't say things that make her cry. And with all the effort he put into being her friend, I don't think she would have changed her mind about Edward, because she would never have a reason to, Jacob would just be the best friend a girl could have.

  43. Meghan

    Jacob would never have imprinted on Bella. It's just not how the story goes. I just can't imagine it like that. Though, I still can't imagine the story having the outcome it did…but oh well. So I can't answer that one. But if Bella chose Jacob, Edward wouldn't have fought him. He says that if she were to ever outgrow him, that he would not stand against her choice, but he would always be waiting in the wings. That's from Twilight and Eclipse…and maybe even in New Moon. I'm not sure. But he says that multiple times :)

  44. Nidhi M.

    Mr. Brightside is a good song for this chapter, by why couldn't you have used the original version by the Killers? I think that one sounds the best.

  45. Meghan

    Oh and also, I don't hate Jacob. He just doesn't belong with Bella. He's just the best friend. Poor him :) I have a guy friend kind of like Jacob, but he's not in love with me, and I don't think of him romantically at all either. But I love him to death, but I would never in a million years date him. I'm sure that's how Bella feels…or felt. Since she kissed him, she realized she is in love with him, sort of. Just not as much as Edward. Which makes no sense to me. I just don't see how you can be in love with two people at a time. But, apparently you can…hmm. I don't get it, but whatever. I also don't understand how she could have someone she's sort of in love with at her wedding. That's just wrong.

    If Jacob imprinted on Bella, she would have picked him. BUT, and I know it is never addressed, but I think Edward imprinted on Bella the first time the y touched in biology. If you read teh description in Twilight and MS, it is pretty clear something “sparked” between them.

  47. Evelyn

    Yes it would be way different. I think Bella and Jake did imprint Edward would let Bella go.I recall Edward saying to Jake that if she did chooses him he will let her go.he wouldn't hurt her like that…. but why didn't Jake do it before like the time Bella told Jake to kiss her ..or the time that Alice was going to take her to rescue Edward? that would be the perfect time to do something like that!.the down side to that Edward would be dead.D: or be sad somewhere .(thats ok his crazy super fans would be there tehe).But that didn't happen so there has to be someone else out there for him even though he said that there isn't.anyway Bella and Jake's love is kinda really in some ways but it's more like friendship love more than Edward and bella love.

    i dont think anything would have changed besides jacob being in more pain

  49. Rachel M.

    Well, first of all, do you really think that Stephenie would have made Jacob imprint on Bella? The whole series is a vampire romance. Werewolves don't count as vampires, last time I checked.

    Anyways, I don't think much would have changed. Bella would still have married Edward, she still would have gotten pregnant…etc. Now, I don't want to give anything away to Kaleb, if he miraculously sees this post, but the rest of us who have read it will know what I'm talking about…hopefully. I think that the end of the book would have changed a bit. Just something about the whole imprint twist leads me to believe that something would have changed.

    Oh, and I love the chapter names for this section of the book. :)

  50. court

    I don't think that it would have changed anything in the book. I could love someone with all of my heart, and I could find a way to be absolutely sure we were meant to be together (hypothetically, im not quite sure how to find that out, but when I do, I'll let everyone know), that doesn't mean the other person has to be with me, does it? Bella already knew that Jacob loved her like that, but Edward is really who she wanted. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Jacob say when he was explaining the idea of imprinting to Bella that there would be no reason for the girl who was imprinted on to not be with that werewolf because they are so meant for each other? But that would not necessarily include the idea of a vampire around, because he also says they are against nature? So, then they aren't included in that whole idea of theres no one else made for them? So, by my very long and confusing and not necessarily correct logic, Edward could be an exception to that rule. :) Point is, she doesn't have to love him enough just because he imprinted. So it just means there is an even more-depressed Jacob hanging around

  51. Natty

    hmmm… I have no idea. I don't want to spoilerify (too bad about the lack of SPOILERIFY in the dictionary) too much, but if Jacob had imprinted on her… more hmmming. I think she would have chosen Edward because she sort of human-version of imprinted on him… hance her near death in NEW MOON.

  52. meghan

    why wasnt the killers version of mr.brightside used?!?!? as a fan of the killers i am kind offended, but this is still my fav site!!!!

  53. KalebNation

    Ha ha, because I've already used The Killer's version of the song two or three times already :P This was the only way I could get away with using Mr. Brightside again

  54. inzaratha

    Jacob seriously bugs me too. First of all, he should have given up after Bella got engaged, but no, he couldn't. Then she gets married and he is still oogling after her. That is seriously messed up. Can't he take a HINT.

  55. inzaratha

    I do love Jacob's chapter titles too. They remind me of those from the Three Musketeers by Dumas. His chapter titles were always so funny. Another author who does this is Steven Brust, the Phoenix Guards. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phoenix_Guards

  56. Kelly

    I don't think anything would have been different if Jacob in fact had imprinted on Bella.
    As he said himself a book earlier, “The clouds I can handle, but I can't fight with an eclipse.”
    While imprinting may be strong, Edward's love is still other-worldly too. And, in all essence, Edward basically imprinted on Bella, seeing as he only has eyes for her.

    As for Jacob's reaction, I believe Bella would still marry Edward because imprinting does not have to be romantic. The werewolf becomes whatever his or her… fixation(?) needs him or her to be, like with Quil and Claire. So if marrying Edward was what made Bella happy, I think Jacob would let her and just be her best friend.

    Everything would just be about ten times more intense.

  57. Paige

    Oh Kaleb, you crack me up. =D “Oh yes Jacob, you're really going to survive that one.”

  58. amber

    O.k. I don't want to give away any of the story so I'll try not to say much.
    First of all I love Jacob Black. In Fact I think I would choose Jacob over Edward. Edward is too perfect. I would know that there is no way I could live up to his perfection and well Jacob is a real guy. He has flaws like everyone else. And yeah, he is irritating but I think its because he doesn't have the century of experience that Edward does. He is only 16 after all.
    Also, I don't think that Jacob is any less in love with Bella because he hasn't imprinted on her. I mean people fall madly and hoplessly in love everyday with out “imprinting” right. He does love Bella with all of his heart and if you've ever been in love than you can agree that everyone else isn't really gonna matter to you. You don't really see others in “that” way anymore because you've found the one who will make you happy. Imprinting is something complettly different than love.

    And furthermore, I think that the fact that he didn't imprint on Bella is what is tearing him apart. He can't imagine loving anyone more than he loves Bella and can't imagine why he didn't imprint on her. I mean, can you fathom loving someone completly and with all of your heart yet knowing that there is someone else out there who you could love more and knowing you might never meet them? To Jacob, I'm sure this is overwhelming and seems impossible. All he is sure of is that he loves her and at this point in the book he is sure there is absolutly no hope for them.

    Jacob is my favorite character in these books because (besides the fact that he is a warewolf) he is a real person. People go through these things in real life. I mean, Loveing someone you know doesn't love you back and not knowing how to get over it yet knowing at the same time that you will get over it all the while haveing to watch your love interest in the arms of another while you are also dealing with unrelated personal issues….Jacob my Jacob. (sigh)

    As for your question. Edward would have left Bella so that she could be with Jacob. I imagine imprinting to be something like souldmates. If he did imprint on Bella that would pretty much mean they were meant to be together and Edward would accept that because he loves her and wants her to be happy and safe (which of course she would be safe with a warewolf….as odd as that sounds). But Bella wouldn't accept that. She would feel she betrayed Edward and hurt him even though she would be with her true love. She would cause problems because she would feel guilty and unloyal. And as for Jacob, well, imprinting means that he would do anything to make her happy. He would constantly be striving to fullfill her needs and wants which of course he wouldn't be able to do. The books would have had to have been much longer than just four. (which I think they should have been anyway).

    O.k. I got this off my chest so I'll say bye now.

    P.S. They are warewolves…what do you expect them to do…play with yarn?

  59. Duorian

    OK. There are few rules concerning imprinting:

    First, you will imprint on someone the first time you see them after becoming a werewolf, or not at all. There's no way that Jacob could still imprint on Bella.

    The second rule is a little more complicated. In Eclipse, Jacob says that imprinting is a one-way deal. When a werewolf imprints, it's not supposed to affect the imprintee. However, in a future chapter of Breaking Dawn, we learn differently. Also, we discover that a werewolf can proactively imprint on potential progeny. Anyway, according to this rule, if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, she would have also been drawn to him, and would probably have ended up with him. However, if we go by what we're told in Eclipse, I believe Bella would still have gone back to Edward, and yes, there would be a fight.

  60. Heather

    Haha oh man, Kaleb, you and I see eye to eye on Jacob. Long paragraphs ranting about the many annoyances of Jacob Black…yes, definitely the same here. But I'm just going to say, for me this book was like a Phantom of the Opera experience. By the end, I loved Jacob, when I was strictly against him. I'm still rock solidly Team Edward, but I understand and appreciate Jacob more now.

    Loved the crunches. Made me laugh =)

    There is an unknown reason why Jacob continues to pursue Bella. Keep reading. And you would definitely, definitely know when you've imprinted on someone. You've read descriptions – it's like there is nothing holding you to this world but that one person, your whole life revolves around them completely. Jacob isn't quite that intense with Bella. Just look to Sam and Emily for reference. I think if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, she would've had no choice but to leave Edward and be with him because imprinted people have no choice. And Edward would've let her go if it was what she wanted and what made her happy (look to the Sam/Emily/Leah love triangle for reference lol).

    Oh, and I loved your sarcasm here: “One wolf against a coven of vampires? Oh yes Jacob, you’re really going to survive that one.”

  61. amber

    I just went back and read some of the other comment on here.

    Haven't any of you ever been in love!??! Just because someone is in love with someone else, just because they get engaged to someone else, just because they get married to someone else and yes just because they get pregnant with someone elses child doesn't change the fact that you love them. Jacob is truely IN LOVE with Bella. Yeah he should have given up but theres a lot of things people should do and they don't because of personal conflicts.

    And everyones forgetting that Jacob is the only true kid in this story. Bella is even more mature than most kids remember. When I was sixteen logic and reason weren't exactly on the top of my list of virtures to obtain.

    Doesn't anyone else feel for Jacob. Yeah it all turn out great in the end for him but at the point in the story we are talking about Jacob is being tortured. I actually cryed when I read that he had run away. Have a little understanding for Jacob. He is the easiest to relate to in my opinion.

  62. Monica

    Honestly, I think if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, she would've ended up with him. Remember, if the imprinting HAD happened, it would've been in New Moon, when Edward wasn't even around. So I think the combination of Bella's existing feelings for Jacob, plus Edward's absence, plus the knowledge that she and Jake were soulmates, all that would have been enough to tip the scales in Jacob's favor. And Edward, if he ever came back, probably wouldn't even let Bella know he was there because he just wants her to be happy.

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the next few chapters, Kaleb! Stephenie's got a biiig twist coming up–I wonder if you'll be able to figure it out? (No worries if you don't–but please share your theories! We can tell you how close you are.) People may have a lot of complaints about Breaking Dawn, but they'll never say it's boring…

  63. julia

    I think Edward would have let her go, because he loves her so much, and if Jacob wuold have imprinted on her, Jacob would be the best match possibly for Bella and I think that Edward would see that and therefor, let them be together if, that would be what Bella wanted.

    BTW I´m sorry if my english sucks, I´m from Sweden so I don't really now how all the words are spelled

    Julia Åberg

  64. Orla

    As others have said, if Jacob had imprinted on Bella wouldn't she be the same with him? The whole “two parts of a puzzle” she-bang seems to apply here.Also, Edward has always said if Bella wanted Jacob, he would step back and do the “honourable thing” (sheesh, he wasn't joking when he said he was masochistic.) This was my first thought and I was surprised because I am very much pro Edward-and-Bella and it was also very logical.
    Jacob's whole bit just depressed me. I love his chapter names but they are sometimes heart-breakingly sarcastic , wait 'til you get to the Wizard of Oz one. I feel so bad for Jacob, he can never win, can he? But despite his bitterness and temper, I still love him not as much as Edward, of course, not blurring the lines here,people, but still. I do enjoy reading Jacob's POV 'cause I feel like you really know the character then. Oh, and I would absolutely love to read Edward's POV(this one's for you, Stephenie.no rush .but you know when people say “no rush” they mean “Now. Dammit!” Just joking, I'll live.) Most of my Twilighty-friends want to “La Push him off a cliff” their words, not mine. They say his only redeeming quality is he can warm you up when it's cold.
    I am also amazed at how much people can remember from the books, I can barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday . =]
    About the song for the chapter ; I LOVE the Killers , they are my favourite band (ever) and I hate when people try to warp their songs into a Club Mix or just play the song but still manage to get it completely wrong *coughMCFLYcough* but I can say in all honesty, I like this one … a LOT. I have listened to it about five times consecutively while reading/commenting on this post so good choice.
    Kaleb, I just have to say how very fond I am of your music, also. It's really beautiful and surpassed my expectations by miles ( no offence it's only because I saw you first and foremost as a writer, you know).So far, the box in the bookstore is my favourite because it's just a little creepy but sounds really magical and dark at the same time. I can't download it for some reason but for now I'll just have to abuse the myspace.

    P.S. Who is “Burgermeister Meisterburger”???

    P.P.S *It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this? It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss* Good point , Brandon. I dunno either. XD

  65. Judy Bradley

    Sure it would have been a whole different story and Edward being the gentleman he is would not have stood in her way if she truly wanted to be with Jacob. But I do not believe that was ever possible because if there could have been imprinting between Bella and Edward – that was their attachment, deep and permanent. I too think of Jacob as immature, but I also think Bella was to some degree. She grew up a lot in this book especially after becoming a vampire too – like she suddenly grew up.

  66. Judy Bradley

    Another comment, I do not understand those who do not like Breaking Dawn, it is my favorite, Bella becomes the person Edward always saw her as and she sees it too.

  67. E

    Oh, man, Jacob comes up with the funniest chapter names.
    I love being in his head. I was always Team Edward, but I still love him.

    Anyway, to answer your question: Jacob couldn't have imprinted on Bella, because then he wouldn't be Jacob. They aren't each others' true other halves. It's not possible, because that's what Edward is.

  68. Alba

    I really, really, really loved your comment. I completely agree with you in everything you said.

    “Can you fathom loving someone completly and with all of your heart yet knowing that there is someone else out there who you could love more and knowing you might never meet them? To Jacob, I'm sure this is overwhelming and seems impossible.”

    If only everyone could see just how difficult everything is for Jacob, no one would hate him. This “imprinting” thing and the love he has for Bella are tearing him appart. And, although he isn't as immature as everyone like to think, he's just 16. He doesn't know how to react to such big things yet, and he just sticks to what he knows is real. He sticks to his love for Bella, a love that was there even before he became a werewolf and his life changed to this confusing situation. He's kinda terrified of the unknown. Can you guys blame him?

    And, in addition to all this, he doesn't like to think that his life could get out of his hands just because he's a werewolf and can imprint on a girl. He wants to choose. He wants to be able to choose freely. And he chose Bella before he became a werewolf. His love for her is strong. He's completely and utterly in love with her. But, although she loves him, she doesn't love him enough. I'm sure even Jacob wonders what would have happened if he had imprinted on Bella. If he had imprinted on Bella, that would have meant they were meant to be together. They would have been soulmates. He knows she would have chosen him, because he would have been made for her. This love-hate situation with the “imprinting” thing is breaking him inside. And I don't think he understands what “imprinting” really means for the wolf. He thinks it takes away his will, and that's not true.

    There's a hella lot more depth to Jacob than you all think.

    Kaleb, I would love it if you read this comment. Just read it, no need to answer it. I just… I hate it when you bash Jacob like that. He doesn't deserve it. Yeah, he makes mistakes (a lot), but he's human, right? He's bound to make mistakes. Bella makes a lot of mistakes, and who hates her for that? Why can she make mistakes but Jacob can't? Even better: Why can Edward make mistakes but Jacob can't? And he's a vampire! His mind is so much better than a human mind! It's more difficult for him to be mistaken than it's for Jacob!

    Jake is impulsive, he sticks to what he believes is right. Is it that bad?

  69. Natalie

    Yeah, there's a MUCH longer chapter name coming, Kaleb, don't worry. Wizard of Oz…Ha ha ha!!!

    When I first read Breaking Dawn I screamed “NO!!!” When I saw the Jacob section…and how LONG it is, good grief!!! I put it down for hours before deciding to quickly peruse it to get back to the good stuff. It was extremely annoying to be in Jacob's head, hated it so much, but then I realized why. There is a very good reason why Stephenie did it this way, I am sorry to admit. I hate it seeing Jacob mope around like this, very annoying. Jacob Black….I want to La Push you off a cliff!!
    But it does get better, promise.
    And if Jacob had imprinted on Bella (heaven forbid!!) then it would have been two-way….that's how it works, she would be in it with him (shiver). Edward would have let her go without a doubt. But there is a reason why he does not imprint on her, okay, people? And, no, imprinting happens the first time you see the person or not at all. There is no delay. What was Jacob thinking? If he didn't imprint on Bella, he would on another girl. Would he have just kept Bella around for a while then say “Okay, Bella, sorry I imprinted. Guess this is goodbye…” Stupid jerk! He is delusional, the end.

    Oh, boy, Kaleb…the next chapter is SO SO SO depressing!! I cried for an hour because of the next chapter….be prepared!!!

  70. Mich(elle) C.

    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella..I don't think much would have changed. I mean, it already seemed like he did since he is/was in love with her. I don't think Jacob is all that immature. I don't think Edward is completely perfect, either. I think I completely agree with Mattie. When someone imprints, it's a little bit stronger than love but love is respecting, caring, etc. for someone else except yourself. I love Edward but he says that he 'hates himself'..And I just personaly believe that you should love [as in respect] yourself before you love anyone else. Edward wants Bella to be happy but I bet he's devastated as much as Jacob. They both have their ups & downs. It takes a while for people to actually realize what's going on. And I bet you'll love Jacob at the end of this gorgeous book, Kaleb.

  71. Sarah

    BLAH! That version of Mr Brightside is horrid! They killed that song….The Killers might poke their eardrums out if the hear it. I was so distracted by it that I wasn't able to concentrate on what you wrote about the chapter.

  72. Haley

    I don't think it would have changed. It just would have made things even more difficult–that last thing Bella needs. Edward would do anything for her (unless it involves hurting her), and his love is more real than an imprint, in a way. If a werewolf imprints, can he/she be honest? I'm not sure. Anyway, I just think the Edward-type of love would be better than an imprint.

    Honestly, I really enjoyed Jacob's section, though I wasn't happy to begin with. I got to know and like him much more. Besides, Bella could not have told the story: she'd only talk about her baby. Edward would have had panic attacks thinking about Bella's health and would have blamed himself the whole time . Jacob's the only one who could at least semi-logically tell the story.

  73. Elle

    I agree that Bella would still have chosen Edward BUT I think it would have been easier for Jacob if he had imprinted on her. Imprinting makes the person be what the other needs so when Bella married Edward she wouldn't need a husband, but a friend. I think it would have been easier for Jacob just to be her friend. Just like Quil is like a brother to Claire, it would be a platonic friendship.

  74. beckysue

    I actually loved Jacob's chapters in Breaking Dawn. I especially loved his chapter titles. :D (But I am still entirely Team Edward.)

    Oh, and I felt good because I knew your obscure movie reference!

  75. beckysue

    Oh and as for your Jacob imprinting on Bella question: It would have had to have happened a long time ago (imprinting is a first sight thing, right?) because they knew each other way back when they were kids, right? Or maybe thats just the movie…………hmm. But so, they would have imprinted back then and she would have met Edward AFTER she already loved Jacob. So Edward wouldn't matter. (Ugh, that is a tough thing to say, “Edward wouldn't matter” even if its only a “what if” question)

  76. sarclark

    i know what you mean about jacob. i would like to “la push” him off a cliff! lol L:
    beckysue has a point, jacob would have known he imprinted and it would have happened when they met after he became a werewolf. (when he was little he couldnt imprint. i think)

  77. ancha85

    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella, it would have been the first time he saw her after he became a werewolf. When that happened, it would have so overwhelmed Bella (which it did to all the imprints), that she would have fallen totally in love with him. She would have still had feelings for Edward, like Sam did for Leah, but the imprinting would have overrode those feelings. It would have been hard for her, if she saw Edward again, because her feelings for him are so strong. But if she wouldn've imprinted, she wouldn't have gone cliff diving alone, wouldn't have almost drowned, and Edward wouldn't have tried to kill himself, so they would not have had their reunion.

    Edward probably would have returned to check on her, but if he saw her happy with Jacob, he would have tried his best to leave her alone. After all, he himself often feels Jacob is a better choice for Bella, because she wouldn't have to become a vampire or be in danger of vampires. Edward would have lived a horribly miserable “existence”, and would have most likely tried to die in someway, once Bella had lived her natural life.

    Basically, Jacob doesn't hate imprinting. He says he doesn't want to imprint, because he knows that it will make him change how he feels about Bella. What he is really angry about though, is that he really does want what his pack brothers have with their imprints and is afraid it's not going to happen for him and that he'll be miserable, without Bella, for the rest of his long life.

    Thank God this is not how it happened. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Jacob Black, and my heart aches for him, but because of the wonderfulness that is Stephenie Meyer, EVERYTHING is going to be great in the end. Bella and Edward are soulmates and MUST be together, I just hate that Jacob has to suffer so much. The only thing that helps me to stand it, is to know that he is going to eventually be happy too.

  78. Holly

    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella, she would no longer love Edward and not marry him. He would not have fought for her because Edward would want her to be happy. Jacob and Bella would be meant for each other.

  79. Brogan

    I actually think that if Jacob HAD imprinted on Bella, she would have eventually fallen in love with him. Sort of like with Emily and Sam. When he first imprinted on her, she didn't really want anything to do with him, because he'd broken her cousins heart and blah, blah, blah. But then, eventually, she did fall in love with him- they were meant to be together. If Jacob had imprinted on Bella, she would have fallen in love with him. Total devotion isn't an easy thing to ignore! Hahaha! And Edward, in all his perfection, would have let her go, because that would be the good thing to do for Bella's sake.

  80. antoinette

    wel I don't think she would end up with Jacob if he had imprinted on Bella. A copple of times is told that the love Bella and Edward have is more powerfull then that of the imprinted and the imprintee. And Besides of that Edward let us see in new moon how devoted he is too Bella. He even try to let kill him by the Volturi when he thinks she death. How much devoted can you be. And there is a second reason why she could never trully be with Jacob and really be happy in live. But that you will understand if you read further. And I don't like to spoil.

    But when Jacob would have inprinted on Bella, it will be much more diffecult to choose for Bella that is true. And if Bella wanted Edward would let her go. Because he loves her more then his self. But he knows it will kill him in the end.

    *Cringes at all the anti-Jacob comments* Again, Team Edward, but still love Jacob.

  88. Nightmare and Dream

    There are loger chapter names. xD~

    I think Bella would have ended up with Jacob if he had imprinted on her. I think the imprinting doesn't only affect the werewolves. It also affects the partner. Just look at Leah, Emily and Sam. In the end, Sam and Emily ended up together.

  89. Claire B.

    To answer your question, I reallly don't think that anything would be different in Edward and Bella's relationship, because, whether Jacob loved Bella in an imprinted way or a normal way, Bella would still have the same feelings for Edward. It's kind of confusing, though, because imprinting means that you want what's the best for the object of your imprinting. As you found out from the example of Quil and Claire (Claire is my name! I'm three!), imprinting doesn't neccesarily constitute romantic love. So, there are really three options.

    1. Jacob continues to pursue Bella, but gives up and is happy to see her happy when it becomes clear that she has chosen Edward and will always choose Edward (at the wedding.)

    2. Jacob knows a lost cause when he sees it, but wants Bella to be happy. He wishes Bella luck, gives his blessing to her and Edward's marriage, and then goes and finds a way to kill himself that isn't hampered by his werewolf super- healing.

    3. Jacob has no romantic love for Bella from the start. He understands that she loves Edward as a boyfriend but she loves him as a best friend. He would never pursue Bella and he would be happy that she had found a soul mate in Edward. Because of Jacob's neuterality in Edward and Bella's relationship, Edward might actually be friendly with Jacob, although the could never be very close because of the vampire/ werewolf thing.

    On the whole, I think that option 3 is the best. Stephenie could not have Jacob imprint on Bella, though, for reasons you'll find out later.

  90. victoria

    i think it's a good thing that jacob didn't imprint on bella, because Edward woul've died in depression and rejection and Bella would have died because her soulmate-trump would be dead and Jacob would die because Bella died for Edward… so yeah. everyone would die. bad news.

  91. vanessa

    if jacob had imprinted on bella than jacob would have left them alone because he knew that bella needs edward and is happy with them and when a person imprints on the other they'll be whatever you need and bella never needed him to be her boyfriend since she was happy with edward and thats the only thing the imprinter wants is for their imprintee to be happy

  92. Brianna

    Of course Bella wouldn't have married Edward, because if Jacob had imprinted on her, she would have “imprinted” on him too,because the imprintees would have been perfect for each other, and Edward would have been completely out of the picture.

    if jacob had imprinted on Bella he would have let her be with edward. there was a page on how when you imprinted on someone. that someone would be your world, and as i know it said in the book, something along the lines of….”you'd be whatever they needed you to be; a lover, a friend, etc. as long as they were happy, even if it meant going away” Kaleb, it will even be stated by edward later in the book….”what ever it does to make “the imprinted” happy.

  94. shelby

    omg burgermeister!!!!! by far my most fav holiday movie ever! if Jacob was to imprint on bella I think that bella would end up going to Jacob but I don't think Edward would fight Jacob for bella because wasntthe whole ordeal in new moon about giving bella a human life? Edward loves her immensley and wants whateve makes her happy to play out in her life so I think he would let her go one with her life but I think he would be eternally depressed about it without bella know g
    her life but I think he would be eternally depressed about it

  95. shelby

    wow lots of spelling errors! sorry kaleb my iPhone keyboard is very hard to type on

  96. Janelle

    I think you're going to understand Jacob a lot more after these next few chapters. I know some people hated Jacob' s book, but I LOVED it. I really liked seeing things from a different point of view. Being in Jacob's head was something new and interesting, and the chapter titles made me laugh every time. You'll see. :D

    And as for the whole imprinting issue, if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, then he would have known it without question the moment he first saw her after becoming a werewolf. If you recall, this was in New Moon, when Bella goes to Jake's house to “rescue” him from Sam. Jake is terribly rude to her, telling her that they can't be friends anymore. He would not have been capable of that had he imprinted on her. At this point, there is no doubt whatsoever that he did not and will not imprint on her.

    That's one of the biggest reasons that I always felt that Bella belonged with Edward. Jacob didn't imprint on her, so there would always be the possibility that he could imprint on someone else and be forced to leave her. He would have no choice, just like Emily and Sam and Leah. If there were no monsters and no magic, Jacob and Bella would be meant for each other, but there are monsters and magic (at least in the world of Twilight :D ), so Edward is there in the 21st century, more perfect for Bella than Jacob could be. At this point, we have to believe that a love like this will come to Jacob too.

    Happy reading, Kaleb!

  97. Samantha

    It's all a part of the DIVINE PLAN SMeyer so crappily devised. You have to keep reading.

    I won't be a spoiler, so, to answer the question.

    If Jacob imprinted on Bella, she would return the love. Imprints love back, that's just how it works apparently. And, Edward WOULD let her go, because he wants what's best for her, and deep down knows Jacob is the better option. He truly wants her to live a human life, grow old, and die.. Jacob can give that to her, Edward can't. So, if he imprinted on her, they would be together, simple as that.

  98. Samantha

    By the way, by 'divine plan' I mean that later on, Jacob's persistence with Bella will make sense if you pay attention. A lot of people don't catch the reason, but it's there, and makes plenty of sense, in an extremely stupid way.

  99. devz30

    I have always wondered if a person can ever break from imprinting (when someone imprints on them). Could they fight it? Would they? Because when imprinting happens, they just get together, and the girl seems to not have a choice.
    I don't know if it will the same for Bella, but if it did, I still think things wouldn't change. Edward and Bella have such a strange and powerful attraction, I believe it defies even the famous imprinting. =P

  100. antoinette

    I not agree that the inprintee automatecally love the inprinter in the same way. stephany wrote if claire don't choose Quil as a romantic parner he will be in her live as a normal friend. But of the devotion an imprinter have for the imprintee should it be hard not to fall in love with him.

    But for Bella is it different. She have found her real love. That someone she can not live without. And for Edward it is the same.She can not simply changes her feelings for Edward. So she will always end up with Edward because their love have perminent changed them even more powerfull of that of an imprinter and imprintee.

  101. inzaratha

    Edward and Bella's relationship is sort of like imprinting too. Remember both of their very strong reactions when they had just met? Their love is just as strong or stronger than that of imprinting.

  102. kim

    i think in a way edward imprinted on bella..remember how he said it takes alot to change a vampire and once they change it's permanent. when he fell inlove with bella that was it. he would always love and and always want her. and because of that he's doing everything he can to keep her safe and happy. like in eclipse he ddoesn't like her seeing jacob but it makes her happy, so he's ok with it. even if jake had imprinted he would have been what she needed him to a friend at first and would have waited until her feelings changed to be more than a friend. but she didn't feel that way about him. i think he had the wrong idea ever since she flirted with him to get the stories on the beach out of him.

  103. Talkerwolf

    I don't want to know what might have happened, it would be true love vs imprinting. Two very lethel forces to mess with.

  104. Jacqueline

    well I think wolves can love on their on just like Sam loved Leah until he imprinted and then he was almost forced to be with his imprintee. So in theory Bella would've had to give up Edward for Jacob if you think on how imprinting works, BUT not everything works normal with Bella haha. I mean she's the exception to everything as Edward points out so many times in the first book. She's not like everyone else. It's part of what makes him love her, and the fact that Edward as a vampire falls in love with her and she as a human doesn't care he's a vampire and doesn't go off screaming into the night, well that just proves she's not like your normal person. The average person couldn't fight off imprinting but I think Bella might have survived even that and ended up with Edward. Or so my scatttered brain would like to think. Oh and it made me laugh when you brought up imprinting. You'll find out why as you continue reading. I can't wait for you to read ahead. Like say a few chapters ahead I think..

  105. vanessa

    i think nothing would have changed because, the wolfs that imprinted only do what best for the people they imprinted on and only do what the person whant and edward wouldnt have killed jacob because it would hurt bella and he said so himself that he wouldnt do anything to hurt bella. and he would always wait in the side line if she changed hert mind (who woundnt change there minds and go with edward) so it would only change if bella changes her mind, jacob would just be hangung around alot of vampires for a while and he would hate that

  106. Jessica

    I thought that I was the only person in the world who knew about the Burgermeister Meisterburger. I don't feel so alone anymore…

  107. Vitaani

    I think everything Kaleb's read would be pretty much the same so far. Edward wouldn't have “let” Bella go if she didn't want to, and the imprint has no effect on her, so she wouldn't have wanted to. I do think that Jacob would have fought a bit harder for Bella before the wedding, but not after because once he realized she was happy and safe, he would try to just be her friend again. At one point Jacob said that the imprinter “becomes what ever she (the imprintee) needs most at the time.” For example, Quil and Claire are more like uncle/neice or brother/sister for now, because that's what Claire needs most.

  108. jenb

    Well I can't remember if we learn this from the book at all, but Stephenie has said on her website that the wolf will imprint on their person the first time the seem them after turning into the wolf (I think I remember this correctly) so Jacob at this point would not have imprinted on Bella. If Jacob had before, I would like to think that Bella's love and devotion to Edward wouldn't have changed anything, she belongs with Edward (the most romantic, sexy, gentlemanly, sweet, unselfish man in the world!)

    I agree with you on the Jacob's immaturity irking you, that's part of the reason I don't like Jacob and am totally Team Edward. But I think it is nice during these 10 or so chapters to get in his head & understand him a little better. And I think it was smart and kind of necessary on SM's part to do it from his pov (especially the last chapter of his book. You'll understand when you get there.)

  109. Kayla

    I don't think Jacob imprinting on Bella would have changed Bella's love for Edward unless it happened before she met Edward. If had happened before she would have gone with Jacob easily. If it was after she fell in love with Edward, Jacob wouldn't have wanted to fight Edward or do any of that stuff if he knew that it would hurt her. He would have done anything she asked. Even if that meant never seeing her again.

  110. Erin

    Dear Kaleb,
    I'm happy to tell you that that is not even close to the longest chapter title in the TwilightSaga. =)
    I do not that Jacob imprinted. Although I love Jacob, he does need to back off a bit. He needs to realize that Bella loves Edward, she will always love Edward, and she is MARRIED to EDWARD!
    PS this is Jacob_lova from that Live Blog TV the other day….

  111. Gothhic Goddess

    I think that if Bella had never fallen for, and/or met, Edward, she and Jacob would have imprinted. Because, in a way, they were soulmates. She just met the one that managed to, erm, survive, a few extra decades. fate can be a mean ol' witch sometimes, but she makes up for it. In life, and sometimes in books.

  112. Samie

    I bet ppl have said what i am gonna say.. but i shall write it anyways…

    I think no matter what Bella would still be with Edward, cuz she did fall for him first, and on a level that i compare to the level of imprinting (i hope u all understand what i mean). But then if she never met edward then she would for sure be with jake and they would always be together… and im not gonna finish that thought i had there, cuz i dont want to spoil anything for kaleb.. but i bet u are all thinking where i might of been going with that thought… (Hint: RE) anywhoo as Bella said before Jake is the NATURAL path she was suppose to take….

  113. Elspeth

    I rather enjoyed your not-so-obscure movie reference, because I knew exactly that you were referring to “Santa Claus Comes to town” :)
    I loved the picture :)

  114. Jessica

    Glad it is not swine flu, feel better soon. I also get so annoyed with Jacob, He can be so annoying lol. I am glad Bella was smart enough to choose jacob

  115. Get_at_me_Rob

    I think that if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, and then she decided that she wanted to be with him instead of Edward, he would've let her go. I mean, he's alsways saying that he would understand if she didn't want to be with him. He knows that he loves her more than anything in the world, but there's always the part of him that knows that he's no good for her because it's far too dangerous. Plus, because he loves her so much, he only wants her to be happy. And if being with Jacob made her happy, then he would accept it. And the sad part is that he would love her forever anyway. And he would definitely kill himself when Bella died- as he planned to do all along when he thought she'd stay human.

  116. lea

    It’s not about if he had imprinted because technically speaking Jacob is her natural choose for a mate, if werewolves and vampires never existed. So he did imprint on her, before Bella and Jacob realized it but being that the supernatural existed her imprint was broken with him. So she was free to choose. But about the story it would only be a book long and not so cool or worth making a movie out of. No I think the imprint would be too strong for her to be able to be with Edward. Edward would of let her go hoping Jacob would give up.

  117. i-love-star-trek!

    I remember reading somewhere that the imprinters become whatever the girl needs them to be. Like Quil with that little girl… he doesn't like her like THAT because that would be gross. He feels only big-brotherly affection for her. It would be the same with Jacob. I think Bella would choose to stay with Edward and Jacob would become what she needs him to be: i.e, a best friend, brother-type figure.
    Bella wouldn't choose Jacob. Just because someone imprints on you, it doesn't make you imprint on them, right? The only thing that changes for the girl is that she becomes an object of devotion. Edward is already devoted to her so nothing would change for Bella, just that she would feel worse for what she's putting Jacob through. Bella's feelings would stay THE SAME and Jacob would change for her.
    But all this doesn't matter anyway, because if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, she wouldn't have even gotten to know Edward in the first place.

  118. i-love-star-trek!

    Thanks Kaleb….now you have “I'm Mister Heat Meiser” stuck in my head…

  119. ERIKA

    I'm really excited about you reading on Jacob's pint of view Kaleb =)

  120. FictionsMyReality

    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella, I bet the whole fandom would have been thrown into a mess. It would have been l like a train wreck. The whole story would have been like, carrying its readers in one direction, and then BAM! Jacob imprints on Bella and then there's a whole new twist to the story. Like it just switched courses all of the sudden.

    Do you think maybe. if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, that there would be a drop in the fandom? Would all of the Team Edward people just get so upset that they would cease to be apart of the fandom? It would kinda be like a poor sport. All of the Team Edwards have been on the winning side from the beginning while the Team Jacobs have been sitting along for the ride, clinging to the hope that Bella would fall for Jacob, but all along, contently reading ahead in second place.

    Lol, I guess I really didn't answer your question on how it would affect the book, but I find how the fandom might change rather interesting.

  121. PxyShan

    Perfect song for this post. I'm glad I'm not the only person who listens to PlayRadioPlay.

    Jacob's chapters give great insight to his mind. It's one of the reasons Breaking Dawn is my favorite book in the series (don't fret, I am definatly team Edward).

    Obscure reference, yes. But brilliant! Remember, put one foot in front of the other!

  122. PxyShan

    Forgot to answer the question!

    Jacob imprinting on Bella would completely change the books. She would be with him and there would be nothing that Edward could do about it. Bella and Jacob would be together adn happy and make lots of wolf babies.

    I think you'll gain more insight on imprinting as you get farther into the book.

  123. Bonnie

    REGARDING HATERZ EMAIL: Ok. One, I'm not a troll. Two, you do a FANTASTIC job here. Three, Thank you! Now that I've appropriately prefaced my comments… My sister and I love following your blog. You're funny, easy-going, and have a great take on the series. That said, we've noticed the chapter reviews getting further and farther between. Here's the schedule of chapters and when you posted on them:
    Chapter 1 – March 30
    Chapter 2 – April 6
    Chapter 3 – April 13
    Chapter 4 – April 15
    Chapter 5 – April 23
    Chapter 6 – April 24
    Chapter 7 – April 30
    Chapter 8 – May 9
    Coupla notes: Chapter 5, Isle Emse was done in conjunction with Chapter 6, but it only had the lovely “Awkward” picture. Loved it, but really that meant one entry for that week. So it was a fairly regular 1 a week schedule for awhile (with a bonus week when you did Chapter 3 and 4). It seems like May has really slowed you down. We know you've got a lot on your plate. Excitement about Bran Hambric. School, finals, all that “important” stuff (tongue in cheek.) But we're just asking you not to forget to show some love to the people who started following you because this was “a guy reads the Twilight series.” Contests are cool, your other projects are fun, but I'm eager for the Breaking Dawn stuff. Thanks for reading. Long and boring, I know, but just wanted to give some feedback. And as always, thank you.

  124. Karen H

    If Jacob would have inprinted on Bella, nothing would have changed except Jacob. How would Bella change just because Jacob imprinted? “Geez Jacob, now that you have imprinted on me, I think I'll diss Edward, and go for you.” DON'T THINK SO!!

  125. ShakespeareFreakazoid

    As for your curiosity about why Jacob is so attached to Bella: All I will say is that it will all make sense in a few chapters. No, that is not a spoiler, it's a gentle hint to read faster so that you can answer you own question!!

    Well, if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, first of all the fandom would explode completely. The team Jacob people would be all “BOOYAH! IN YO FACE, BIATCHES” to Team Edward, Team Edward would be all “WTF?” and then maybe completely give up on the fandom, and the Team Switzerland people would all convert to Team Jacob because Team Edward is no longer possible.
    and yes, with the last sentence, I am saying that Bella would not have married Edward. The imprint goes both ways, even if it's not as intense for the Imprintee. It's like finding your true love, the one you're completely compatible with. The werewolves just happen to have a thing in their genes that tell them who Mrs (Or Mr, in Leah's case) Right is.
    And to your last question, no I don't think that Edward would have fought Jacob. He said in Eclipse that if Bella chose Jacob, he would give her up. Besides, all through every single book, Edward always going on about how he's not safe for her, and she can always leave if she wants to.

    And as my final say BURGERMEISTER MEISTERBURGER!!! OMG! I was completely addicted to all of those crappy clay-animation christmas classics as a kid! Okay, I'm done now.

  126. Janie

    Elle, that's genius! I didn't even think of that! I was sure that if Jacob DID imprint, Bella would still choose Edward, and she and Edward would still have gotten married, etc. I feel like an idiot, but I completely forgot that it would change Jacob's feelings for her.

  127. hello kaleb

    well if b and j got together edward would have let her go because he wouldn't want to hurt her and wants her to be happy. however u think bella would never truely let go of edward either. this would still be a very good book though if this happened.

  128. xXCourtney HaleXx

    Okay, I'm just freaking out because you mentioned Phantom of the Opera. (Best book ever! Twilight's second best to me.) Seriously, I screamed so loud…
    Onwards to Twilight Land!
    I think if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, the story would have changed dramatically. If I'm correct, when Stephenie Meyer explained imprinting, the Imprintee is madly in love with the Imprinter. Neither would love anyone else, so Edward would be out of the story. That said, I highly doubt that Bella would've married him, but Jacob instead.
    For the last question, I think Edward would have let Bella go. He just loves her to much to see her not be with the one she loves most.

  129. Alexandria

    Oh I love this song! It goes really well with the chapter.

    I really don't think that Jacob imprinting on Bella woul change the book much. Bella still would have met Edward because he goes to the same school as her. Edward and Bella still would have gotten married. The only thing that would have been different is that Jacob never would have left before the wedding. Also, he would want t o particapate in it because he would have loves Bella and would want to see her happy. He would continue to be her friend through the rest of her life because he never would want anything bad to happen to her.

  130. tigerswimmie

    All I can say is that I love Jacob, and Edward was super annoying. Breaking Dawn was really bad compared to the other books and I actually laughed at the end. It was just SO bad. I've read some fan fiction that was more intriguing and seemed to fit with the other stories better.
    If Jacob had imprinted on Bella the story would have DEFINITELY turned out differently. Imprinting is a two way thing, so Bella would have not been able to leave Jacob. She would have left Edward and ended up with Jacob. Although I'm totally team Jacob, I think it would not have been like Stephenie to make this happen. And if Bella ends up with Jacob, who's left for me? ;p
    The Jacob hate is killing me, Kaleb! I can't even read your posts without getting purple in the face and explaining out loud why you're wrong. Why are all twilight guys team Edward? It makes no sense.
    *DESPAIR*

  131. Kougie

    There is a chapter name longer than this one.
    I like Jacob's chapter names better than Bella's. They are much more entertaining.

    I can't believe that after all this time, no one has told you what is going to happen!
    I knew every single thing that happened through the whole series before I even thought of reading Twilight.
    I thought that it was stupid before I read it. (Like all of us) My friends had to force me to read it!

    Anyway, your post never cease to amuse me! Especially the pictures!

  132. Jackie

    Firstly if Jacob did imprint on Bella it would have been the first time he saw her after he was changed into a werewolf way back in New Moon. But since that didn’t happen, Jacob can’t imprint on Bella. I understand Jacob’s frustration with imprinting and loving another person. It makes sense and like everything in life there are pros and cons to it.

    But if Jacob HAD imprinted on Bella than the story would have changed dramatically. For one thing Edward would be out of the picture. To imprint on someone is like ‘love at first sight’ as Stephenie put it. They are your true love. You’re like perfectly designed for each other like soulmates. So Jacob would love Bella and Bella would love Jacob. That being said Bella wouldn’t marry Edward because she wouldn’t love him as much as she loves Jacob. Edward would still love Bella, but Edward being Edward would let her go which is a really sad feeling. I’m guessing Edward would probably do what he said in Eclipse. He would have waited for her until Jacob died or something. Also if Jacob did imprint on Bella than there wouldn’t be an Eclipse or Breaking Dawn – the books would have been totally different.

    I definitely think that your point of view of Jacob will change for sure. It did for me. I hadn’t really developed an opinion on Jacob Black while reading Twilight and New Moon. But after reading Eclipse I didn’t really like for what he was doing. But after reading Jacob’s chapters I really liked his character. I was beginning to see his views of things and how he felt. That’s when I really related to Jacob well. So I’m pretty sure you’re opinion changed and plus it’s a nice break to read his chapters. They are so funny and the chapter names are so funny too!!

  133. Tianna

    Okay, I have to think that Bella (being the kind and selfless and caring person she is *sarcasm*) would have stayed with Jacob out of obligations that she felt as his soul mate if he had imprinted on her. Edward would have most likely tried leaving again, making Bella all the more heartbroken (/again/) and Jacob to clean it all up (/again/).

    Alice would have thrown a fit because she couldn't see Bella or Edward when they were in proximity of Jacob (remember cliff-diving?), so she would have driven over (maybe) and tried to save Bella, thus making Edward really peeved that she was interfering because he didn't tell the whole story (/AGAIN/) and Bella feeling very confused while Jacob fumed as silently as he could (on the outside — he's yelling at Edward in his head) about the entire thing.

    Bella would be more bamboozled than ever, thinking, “OMG WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME?!?!?!?” while Edward thought, “Shoot, why can't I tell how Bella is taking this,” and Jacob, “DANG BLOODSUCKER LEAVE ME AND MY IMPRINT IN PEACE SO I CAN GET RID OF THE MALE HORMONE LEVELS!!!”

    Alright, maybe not like that, but you get the point.

    I think Jacob wasn't letting go though for, not the fear of her being dead, but because he felt she was the closest thing to love as he was going to get, and he was trying to hang on because he felt he couldn't go on without her. Maybe it was the boy/man in him screaming, or it was the wolf, or maybe it was because he just loved her so much that letting go wasn't possible without pliers.

    ((This sounds so much like something I would have expected Leah to rant on and on about))

  134. Marissa Bloomfield

    that is HARDLY an obscure movie reference!!!! I love the 25 days of christmas and especially Santa Claus is Coming to Town, but the best is definitely The Year Without a Santa Claus =D

  135. tia_jb10

    omg if jacob imprinted on bella that would make for some story it would surly make it longer i wish but any way they would definitly fight or at least im pretty sure i would love to see the end edward would have left to stop from hurting bella couse she would have to chose and if she chose edward i dont think jacob could live with the the one thing he lives for bella be with someone thats not him he mite run away like he did before or possibly kill himself but jacob and bellas love would overdo edward and bellas love cuz it was ment to be for them edward would be lonely and it would be a bit of a sucky ending cuz no matter how much i love jacob more i can stan to see edward alone.

  136. Camera

    What does imprinted
    really can some one tell me please

  137. Megan

    I personally believe if Jacob HAD imprinted on Bella, it wouldn't have been the same story at all. In my opinion, imprinting on someone means you're absolutely PERFECT for one another – that the two are destined to be the match made in heaven, created exclusively for one another. You can pass by your one true love on the street and never know it – imprinting just makes you aware of it instantly. I think the fact that Jacob DIDN'T imprint on Bella means that they're NOT the perfect matches for one another – Edward and Bella are. Thus, if Jacob had imprinted on Bella, there's no way she would have chosen Edward over him, because JACOB would have been her one true love. But he isn't. Edward is. Imprinting isn't some magical force that you turn on and off; it's a sign that tells you who you are destined to be with. That's just my opinion, anyway. But if it's right, then obviously Jacob didn't imprint on Bella because they weren't destined to be together. The reason it's so rare is that the likelihood you meet the one person you're meant for is so low. In Bella and Edward's case, they were born almost 90 years apart. So, it's impossible for Jacob to have imprinted on Bella, unless the story had been about THEM in the first place.

  138. neonstar

    I always wondered what it would've been like if one of the other werwolves had imprinted on Bella ('cause jacob imprinting on her would be a very large nasty disaster) it just always lingered in my mind when something about imprinting came up. bella

  139. alexandriawagner

    if jake wouldve imprinted on bella, she wouldve picked jake over the leech (team jacob obviously) becuz since jake imprinted on her, he wouldve had so much more 2 offer her cuz that means that they were ment 4 eachother like they were born 2 be 2gether his perfect mach and her perfect mach and yes i do think edward wouldve let her go cuz evn though im team jacob i do have some respect 4 edward cuz he is very… polie and old fashioned and he would want whats best 4 bella not himself and he would see that bella is jacobs and jacob is bellas cuz he imprinted and if jake imprinted on bella jake would be better 4 her cuz jake was meant 4 her since he imprinted and edward was… not…

  140. alexandriawagner

    if jake wouldve imprinted on bella, she wouldve picked jake over the leech (team jacob obviously) becuz since jake imprinted on her, he wouldve had so much more 2 offer her cuz that means that they were ment 4 eachother like they were born 2 be 2gether his perfect mach and her perfect mach and yes i do think edward wouldve let her go cuz evn though im team jacob i do have some respect 4 edward cuz he is very… polie and old fashioned and he would want whats best 4 bella not himself and he would see that bella is jacobs and jacob is bellas cuz he imprinted and if jake imprinted on bella jake would be better 4 her cuz jake was meant 4 her since he imprinted and edward was… not…

  141. Heloysa

    If jacob had imprinted on Bella they would have ended up together. She of course would not have married Edward because they would not have been as close. In new moon it was obvious that Jacob really helped her and she enjoyed being around him. I think Edward would not have fought Jacob over her because he said so in Eclipse. It was even said that Jacob and Bella were perfect for each other. But sadly Jacob and Bella would not have lasted very long because I would have killed her because Jacob IS MINE!! AND SHE BETTER BACK OFF!!!.

  142. Delilah Grace

    I love this song! Perfect for this chapter!
