to start

+ Do you like this Edward or do you find him too overbearing and creepy?
maybe i'm just a creeper, but i love intenseangstward.

+ Where do you stand with Michael in this story? When do you think he is going to make an appearance?

i'm just happy it isn't jacob because i really don't like him popping up in fics to screw things up. :x it seems like michael's going to have to make an appearance at some point, though i can definitely see edward going all smug and cocky on him and showing him what's what.

rofl it is refreshing to have the love interest be someone other than Jacob, and I like how it's not obvious that it's Mike Newton. But lol I can't help but think she used "Michael" because of Oregano...

Jealouswards are always so hot omg

I want Edward to make Michael feel intimidated by him and show him that Bella is more than just another girl. I feel like Mike doesn't appreciate Bella much.

i also like it isn't Jacob, whenever they add Jacbo it just makes it so much worse lol

+I think that Bella is probably the one who actually controls the relationship. It's hard to explain, but it seems like she dictates it all of the interaction, even if he pushes it. He takes whatever she gives him and it's almost like he's is a slave to whatever attention she will give him.

+I love this Edward. He is delicious and just the right amount of terrifying

+With the outtake, I just wasn't aware that E&B had gone that far. In the context of TB&TC, Edward makes it seem like he's waited his whole life for just any sort of sexual contact with Bella, but in actuality, they've gone really far.

+I think that at the end of Ch. 14, Michael was calling because he was on his way to see Bella. She was kind of pissed at him because he didn't seem to care about how upset she was about Esme dying, and I think he might be coming to visit to try to make it up to her.

i totally agree about the control, he def is at her mercy and i think he knows it

now that you mention it, it's true, i didn't think they ever physically went that far either, hmmm interesting

ya it would def make sense if Michael was on his way
queen of carrot flowersblinkers345 on September 9th, 2009 01:10 am (UTC)
omg the banner is so nice :') those are such good pictures for this story

+ How do you see Bella and Edward's relationship? Who do you think is really in control?
This is tricky. On the surface it seems like Edward b/c he's such a creeper and he's been ordering her around all their lives. But I'm going to have to say Bella, because she can probably make Edward do whatever she wants.

+ Do you like this Edward or do you find him too overbearing and creepy?
He IS too overbearing and creepy but I like it >:]~

+ What are your thoughts about Edward's gift?
Really sweet. I can't picture anything more appropriate.

+ Where do you see Bella and Edward going after Chapter 14: Alchemy?
Ugh from all the fics I've read, I have a feeling that there is going to be some terrible confrontation with that asswaffle "Michael" and then Bella will feel guilty. Then E/B will mourn apart for some time, then jump back into a bed somewhere.

+ What are your thoughts on Edward's "confession"?
Which confession? About his biggest fantasy? That doesnt surprise me. But I do wish it had been something a little kinkier, a little more Domward maybe.

+ Did you read Denying Difference? What kind of perspective does that give you on their relationship?
Before I read that I was under the impression that they hadnt had any sort of sexual contact before but I was obviously wrong sooo

+ Where do you stand with Michael in this story? When do you think he is going to make an appearance?
Ugh soon unfortunately. IDC about him really, I just want him to be out of the picture so they can have lots of creepy little babies who will document their crushes lives on film
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:12 am (UTC)
For the confession I meant the fact that he can only hear her.
queen of carrot flowersblinkers345 on September 9th, 2009 01:14 am (UTC)
Ah ok, I was going to say either the fantasy thing or that rofl

welllll i like that, i think its an interesting play on the books. he can only hear bella here, and in the books bella's the only one he can't hear. i love the creepy connection he has with her. he literally knows every corner of her soul
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:13 am (UTC)
But I kind of think that Edward won't ALLOW Bella to turn all emo and try to make things up with Michael. Sure I think she will feel shitty about it, but she initiated everything that happened in Ch 14. Something tells me she's giving in and it won't be easy for her to regret it. At least I hope.
queen of carrot flowersblinkers345 on September 9th, 2009 01:15 am (UTC)
i hope that's the way it happens too. i like when curseward gets commanding. and this is something he needs to make demands about bc he's been waiting what, almost 30 years for this jfc
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:16 am (UTC)
I hope that he makes his claim very well known if Michael does show up. I want him to be jealous and possessive and rub himself all up on Bella, lmao
queen of carrot flowersblinkers345 on September 9th, 2009 01:17 am (UTC)
lol pee on her leg
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:17 am (UTC)
I wouldn't put it past him, tbh. He would.
MELIßAquackypenguin on September 9th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
he so would. or pee in a circle around her.
Oanhsglitzys on September 9th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
I'm dying to read that.
Real or not real?prettymagic on September 9th, 2009 02:47 am (UTC)
those pics really are perfect for the fic:P
Oanhsglitzys on September 9th, 2009 01:24 am (UTC)
+ How do you see Bella and Edward's relationship? Who do you think is really in control?

Their relationship is bittersweet for me. I think both love each but their actions is the opposite of their feelings. From the beginning Edward I thought that Edward was in control of the relationship but after reading all of the chapters I can say that Bella is in control. Bella is the cause of Edward's volatile actions in their younger years and she definitely have his heart. He is right she does have power over him even without having any special powers.

+ Do you like this Edward or do you find him too overbearing and creepy?
I really like this Edward because his character is more complex and have depths. He is not just another pretty face.

+ What are your thoughts about Edward's gift?
I think it's cool but he abuse a lot!

+ Where do you see Bella and Edward going after Chapter 14: Alchemy?
Face reality. I think that Bella will pull away from Edward because she cheated on Mike. She'll clean things up w/Mike 1st.

+ What are your thoughts on Edward's "confession"?
About time! He is really stubborn about Bella's hold on his heart and life. He would have save himself a lot of misery if he had fess up early on.

+ Did you read Denying Difference? What kind of perspective does that give you on their relationship?
Holy shit that was hot! This shows how much B/E love each others' presence in their younger years and how much chemistry they have together. Also Edward would in fact follow her anywhere she went.

+ Where do you stand with Michael in this story? When do you think he is going to make an appearance?
I don't think he loves Bella. She is just there as a physical object to make his appearance in society or circle of friends perfect in his eyes. He will make an appearance in the next chapter as a surprise to Bella.
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
I agree about Michael. He seems to not really care for her at all, she's just a woman he's going to marry to make his life complete. You can just tell they way he talks about her and the way that Bella thinks and talks about him to the family
Oanhsglitzys on September 9th, 2009 01:30 am (UTC)
When Bella describe the sex as something they just do, I can see that there is no emotional attachments each have to each other. Their relationship is so business like for me.
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:31 am (UTC)
Marriage of convenience :|
Oanhsglitzys on September 9th, 2009 01:33 am (UTC)
Yes! LOL I didn't remember this term and was trying to explain it. English is not my first language, sorry.
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 01:33 am (UTC)
lol it's fine :)
Real or not real?: bella/edward/nm/italy/kissprettymagic on September 9th, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
soo at first I thought this edward was super creepy, yet hot haha but now im in love and totally love his over protectiveness

I think it's really interesting that edward can only read bella's mind... i think it makes their relationship more unique

honestly i have no idea what will happen after, bella has a lot of decisions to make, i hope they can be happy around esme for now tho:)

AND OMG DENYING DIFFERNCE, SRSLY I CAN'T EVEN TALK ABOUT IT, ITS JUST TOO UNF;)
Rudebertdenoftrolls on September 9th, 2009 02:43 am (UTC)
OMG IKR JUST THINKING ABOUT IT MAKES ME WANT TO FAP

I feel infinite: r&k jolenehardestofhearts on September 9th, 2009 06:37 am (UTC)
+ I think power is fluid in relationships, but they both have their own ways of giving each other more power. Edward puts Bella in a pedestal, he sees her as all that is good in the world. He worships her in a classic, tangible way, as a goddess that is capable of both good and evil. And, considering the Wuthering Heights reference, I think he somehow believes that if he absorbs all the evil in their relationship, it can't taint her. Bella, on the other hand, sees herself in Edward's hand because he knows her deepest secrets. She can create a mask to everyone else, but she can't hide from him. And I realize I make no sense, sorry.

+ I love this Edward. He's heartbreaking, even as a creeper. I just want her to fix him, like he's a broken machine and she is a licensed technician.

+ I think Michael is coming next chapter. They can't have any peace after what just happened and it will break Edward and make him even more evil.
