Why Jacob Black and Bella Swan Would Never Work as a Romantic Couple

The whole idea of Teams is ridiculous. Readers of the series know how it ends and the folly of picking Teams is apparent. There was never any question Bella would wind up with Edward. Sure, you could pick Team Jacob for his hot body and delicious muscles, but picking Team Jacob because he and Bella make sense is ludicrous and here are 5 reasons why: (spoilers ahead)

1.     Jacob is a werewolf.

It’s not so much that he’s a werewolf, so much as what being a werewolf in Stephenie Meyer’s world implies. At least with Edward, Bella had a chance to become immortal too and eventually this chance is realized. With Jacob she’d grow old and he wouldn’t even start to age until he could go long periods of time without shifting. If Bella hated the thought with Edward, there’s no way she’d stand for it with Jacob, especially when Jacob can’t change her into a werewolf too.

2.     Jacob would imprint.

Another downside to the Jacob and Bella relationship is that eventually, like the rest of his furry brothers, Jacob would imprint. It might not be right away, he might have to wait for her to be born as with the case of Renesmee. But we’re assuming Bella doesn’t stay with Edward so the example should be Quil and Claire. That’d leave Bella alone… Jacobless and Edwardless, which would never work.

3.     Jacob is too pushy.

Edward has his faults, but Jacob’s pushiness makes Bella extremely uncomfortable. She can’t handle it and she doesn’t like it. If a fist in the face doesn’t bring home these facts to Jacob, he’s clearly clueless and will continue in said pushy behavior (as he does in Eclipse manipulating a kiss at the end of the novel) until he ultimately pushed Bella too far and eventually away.

4.     Jacob is beyond reckless.

He’s not worried about his life and safety and takes unnecessary risks. It might be thrilling at first, but over the long haul it’s not what Bella’s looking for. If you look at his behavior at the end of Eclipse you can see where his foolishness gets him – critically hurt and even then he doesn’t take it seriously. Bella would be constantly looking out for him in a manner similar to how she looks after her parents. She needs someone like Edward who’s willing to tone down his wildness and to act like an adult.

5.     Jacob doesn’t get it.

Love means something else to him than it does to Bella and he simply doesn’t get it. He’s in the middle of puppy love, not adult love when it comes to his feelings for Bella. Why else would he run off and face down a hoard of Newborns instead of staying with Bella when she clearly doesn’t want him to go?

Conclusion: It’s as clear as the snout on a werewolf’s face that Bella and Jacob never had a shot of everlasting and true love.

Get into Bed with Terry Spear (Author Interview 3)

Terry squirms in her seat while she looks about nervously. The sound of an overhead skylight sliding open startles her. I watch intently as the new moon casts its glow over Terry’s skin; while I wait. I have a theory I’m hoping to confirm. That Ms. Spear is a royal lupus garou with mostly werewolf genetics. Fifteen minutes have elapsed. A slow Grinch-like grin spreads across my face. So, did this famous author shapeshift during the new moon? Is she a royal as I’ve suspected all along? Sorry folks! Terry Spear had me sign a non-disclosure form before agreeing to this interview.

I love getting into bed with Ms. Spear because her skin is a lot warmer than other authors. As I scuttle closer to her, I can hear what can only be described as growling. Just to be on the safe side, I’ll stick to the edge of the bed.

Terry: First off, it’s very, very important for interviewees to sign non-disclosure forms before agreeing to interviews. Just in case! I mean, look at what happened to one interviewee who appeared in Rolling Stone without having such a clause. So yes, never know what might get me into trouble. Not that I have anything to hide, mind you.

But just a word to the wise, royals can change at will—new moon, full moon, waxing or waning. With having very few human genetics messing up the mix, they have a LOT of control over their shapeshifting abilities. So they don’t have to change unless they get provoked…I mean, want to. Now, you might ask why then do I have a skylight in my house? I’m pointedly pointing at the nondisclosure form.

And secondly, I really wasn’t squirming or acting nervous. The bed had a lump in it. Have you ever heard of The Princess and the Pea saga? That’s me! So I was trying to get comfortable. Just wanted to make that clear. How would it sound if a werewolf writer was nervous about such an inconsequential thing as a skylight? Now, if I were trying to hide the fact I was a vampire and the daylight was appearing… I’d probably be nervous.

Let me back up and clarify, I’m a writer of werewolves, not a werewolf writer as in WEREWOLF writer. Just so we have that clear.

Thirdly, I most assuredly did not growl at any time during the interview. I was clearing my throat before I answered the questions. That’s what it was. It might have come out sounding like a low growl, but…it most definitely was not. Never… Throat clearing. Beyond a doubt.

I have to say though, Susan, I’m loving the interview already and I haven’t even begun!!

Susan: If I were to gaze into a crystal ball and say, “Seduced by the Wolf!” what would I see?

Terry: Leidolf Wildhaven, red werewolf, and brother to Lelandi Wildhaven from Destiny of the Wolf, is dealing with a mess of problems. First, poor guy, he’s a loner wolf who’s taken on a pack of trouble. Remember one of the werewolf killers from Legend of the White Wolf? Well, he’s back. And then there’s the issue of a bunch of cowed subleaders who were abused by the previous pack leader in Heart of the Wolf, and a bright star on the horizon, Cassie Roux, red lupus garou, who’s a wolf biologist, trying to save wolves from extinction. Only Leidolf has other notions, and they definitely don’t fit into Cassie’s scheme of things. But some of the leftover troubles the pack had in Heart of the Wolf are still plaguing this pack, and although Leidolf is a real alpha, he’s got some real beta tendencies when it comes to taking in problem cases. Remember zoo man Thompson? He returns also. Add to that some teen angst, and it’s a fun tale of wolves and werewolves and a sexy romance where we hope two red wolves pair up for a happily ever after!

Susan: Do you do any research before writing a novel? Be it historical, young adult, urban fantasy, Scottish medieval stories, or paranormal.

Terry: Usually, no. I jump write in and begin writing opening scenes, beginning meetings between the hero and heroine, and then once I get a little written, I begin to research and add details as I go along. Once I’m well into my writing, I’m often pausing to look up something to make sure it works. But I’ve also had to do my fair share of rewriting when I’m writing away and think, hmm, do they have this or can this happen, then do some research, find out it’s not feasible, and write it differently. Some might say that it seems a backward way of doing something. I narrow my eyes; I do not growl. And then I give an elusive smile. But you see, I don’t ever plot. Like the wolf who stalks his prey, it’s not a planned activity. He’s hungry, he sees a viable dinner, he goes after it. So as I’m writing along, all of a sudden I think up a scene in my head, and it spills out on the screen or paper. Then I wonder if it will work. It’s usually only a tweaking here or there—like I was thinking it was warmer in Oregon in May when I lived there, but when I began to write the lake scene, found it was not…so had to change the scenario a bit.

Susan: Let’s say for arguments sake you were to bite me, would I turn into a lupus garou?

Terry: Okay, for argument sake, no. Because you see, I’m human. To change you, I’d have to be a wolf, or a werewolf in wolf form, if we want to get technical. You might be thinking of Hunter in To Tempt the Wolf. Well, accidents do happen. That’s all I’m saying about it. Sometimes we just make mistakes—I mean, werewolves sometimes make mistakes. And the poor guy made tons of them on the Oregon Coast during a winter snowstorm. And I really think we should give him a break. It all turned out well in the end, and that’s all that matters. Right?

Susan: I’m a redhead. Would Leidolf accept me as a newbie? Note: I become “unstable” when I’m not reading.

Terry: Absolutely. You see, they’re always looking for new females to join a pack, no matter what color of hair a lady has. They’re NOT interested in guys though. Which causes Hunter so much heartburn in To Tempt the Wolf, you see. Women, fine. But most werewolf packs have an overabundance of horny guys in the pack. Can I say horny in the interview? If not, just strike it. So you’d fit right in as long as you accept what they are and agree to signing a nondisclosure form. As far as the reading aspect, you’ll have your horizons expanded beyond your wildest dreams. So reading will be a nice supplement to everything else you’ll be doing.J

Susan: You’ve mentioned a fictional author named Julia Wildthorn in some of your werewolf novels; Seduced by the Wolf is no exception. Will you give us her story in an upcoming book? (Yes, I’ve been known to do research myself from time to time.)

Terry: Hmm, yes, I might get myself into trouble over this one, but hey, it’s MY interview. They can request their own and rebut mine, if they want to go to the trouble. In Heart of the Highland Wolf, coming Jun 2011, Julia Wildthorn, werewolf romance writer, as in WEREWOLF werewolf romance author, sneaks into a Highland castle to write her next novel. Writers block can be the pits. Not that I ever have that problem, mind you.

She doesn’t expect to find her past intertwined with Laird Ian MacNeill’s family lines, nor that he runs a whole pack of hunky Highland gray wolves. Appetite whetted yet??? But when he discovers she’s had an interview with you in Getting in Bed with Author Julia Wildthorn, he’s not at all happy. He learns the whole world knows intimate details about the woman to be his mate.

I probably shouldn’t be telling you this. Anyway, the thing of it is—he’s got a part in a movie production, and you might want to think of interviewing him in bed. The only difficulty would be his little red mate. Talk about growling. I’m sure she wouldn’t just be clearing her throat.

Susan: Leidolf Wildhaven is one hunky alpha red! Could you tell LRP readers what makes him so irresistible?

Terry: Ah yes, well Leidolf is the kind of take charge guy who is sensitive enough to care about his pack members, to help those in need that no one in other packs took time to deal with, to work with teen troubles, to even go out of his way to win a spunky red wolf over, who has her heart set on sticking to the wolf kind, rather than the werewolf kind, and even risks going back to the zoo to do it. Did I mention he’s sexy too? He doesn’t stop when the going gets tough, and he’s protective of both Cassie and his pack members that he has vowed to lead no matter what the cost. And he has a sense of humor. All heroes need one, don’t you think?

Susan: On your blog you sometimes discuss being outdoors. If you had to choose only one, which would you choose?

1st choice: Pulling weeds

2nd choice: Mowing the lawn

3rd choice: Raking leaves

4th choice: Watching a hunky wolf doing all of the above while you sip an ice cold lemon tea

Terry: Now if I were a good little gardener, I’d say 4th choice because he’d do a much better job at taking care of the garden than me. On the other hand, I’d pay him back with backrubs and the like. The nondisclosure form means I don’t have to tell you what “the like” includes!

Did I tell you how much fun I’m having with this interview, Susan? Can I come back? I promise I was just clearing my throat before.

Susan: Book six titled Wolf Fever is set to release in December 2010. What can we expect from your sixth installment?

Terry: Back by popular demand, Carol from Destiny of the Wolf returns and we learn how she’s trying to cope with life as a newly turned werewolf. The problem is she’s also psychic. Can you imagine how hard it would be to cope with having trouble with controlling visions, then to have even more difficulty with physical changes, like growing fur at unreasonable times? Not only that, werewolves have a strict rule of watching over werewolves who are newly turned. Stands to reason because they don’t want them to slip up and let the world know that werewolves exist. So Darien, the pack leader, wants her mated, and pronto.

Matters go from bad to worse because she believes that if she shapeshifts, she’ll never be able to return to her human form. And Chester Ryan McKinley, PI who had helped try to solve the murder case in Destiny of the Wolf, returns to see Carol again—unable to let go of his interest in the psychic. She believes he is way more interested in her than he tries to let on, and the two tango as an insidious virus sweeps through the pack and they must find the solution as well as a meeting on the minds on the mating front.

Susan: (Shameless self-promotion here). What would you like to share with LRP readers?

Terry: Each of the books are stand alone titles and so you can read them out of order. Although many readers tell me that they’re fun reading them in order. So here’s the order:

Ms. Spear we love when you come to visit! You know you’re welcomed here anytime with open arms. Thank you for being gracious enough to endure my pitiful attempts at humor.

Thanks so much, Susan, for having me! I’ve had a blast. J And hope to do this again sometime. In the meantime, readers can find me here:

SEDUCED BY THE WOLF BY TERRY SPEAR – IN STORES AUGUST 2010

His first priority is to protect his pack…

Werewolf pack leader Leidolf Wildhaven has just taken over a demoralized pack. With rogue wolves on the loose causing havoc and the authorities from the zoo suddenly zeroing in on the local wolf population, the last thing he needs in his territory is a do-gooder female, no matter how beautiful and enticing she is…

She’ll do anything to help wolves…

Biologist Cassie Roux has dedicated her life to protecting wolves in the wild. On a desperate mission to help a she-wolf with newborn pups, the last thing Cassie needs right now is a nosy and entirely too attractive werewolf pack leader trying to track her down…

With rogue wolves and hunters threatening at every turn, Cassie and Leidolf may find their attraction the most dangerous force of all…

Dress Like Twilight Character: Alice Cullen Costume

Everyone loves Alice Cullen. She’s the tiniest of the Cullen family and very pixie-like. Her loves include fashion, bright shiny yellow sports cars, and throwing a party. Oh and Jasper. 😉 Whether you want to adapt her style to your own wardrobe full time or come up with the perfect Alice costume for a party or for Halloween, this how-to is for you.

Her Palette:

Alice is well known for dressing in an analogous color scheme. She wears a lot of blacks, grays, whites, purples, and blues. Occasionally other colors make it into her look, but this style maven uses them as highlights and regulates this flashes of color to her accessories.

Empire Waists:

Alice loves empire waists and they look fabulous on her. In Twilight, she wore a very cute gray tiered floral pattern empire waist dress and paired it with black leggings and a long sleeve black lace sweater. In New Moon she donned a cute dressy purple ensemble for Bella’s fated birthday party. If you want to feel super cute and chic adding a few empire waist dresses to your wardrobe is the way to go.

Here’s what you need to pull together an Alice Cullen costume featuring empire waists:

1. Gray Empire Waist Dress:

2. Black Ballet Flats:

[phpbay]black ballet flats, 5, 63889, “”[/phpbay]

Layering:

Alice Cullen is also known for her layering. She’ll wear a shirt, vest, and sweater get-up or long sleeves, artist smocks, and arm warmers. Part of the reasoning behind this style is to hide all her flawless skin that sparkles in sunlight. If she’s covered up there can be no oopsies from accidental shafts of light hitting her in the school cafeteria.

To pull one of these layering outfits off you will need:

1. White Dress Shirt:

[phpbay]white dress shirt, 5, 63868, pink black blue[/phpbay]

What’s great about Alice’s style is that there are sure to be several pieces already in your closet. Now that we go the clothes out of the way it’s time to see how else you can complete your Alice Cullen look.

Hair

Alice wears her hair short and spikey and usually flipped out. If you don’t have short hair, or don’t feel like cutting it, you can always go for a wig.

Makeup

Alice goes for very pale neutral makeup to make her very fair skin. She brings life to her face with the use of soft shades of plum pink lipstick. Here’s a tutorial on how to do it:

What you need to recreate Alice’s look:

1. M.A.C. Light Blot Powder:

Review: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

bookreview

The second book in the Twilight saga is entitled New Moon and if the first book was about finding true love, then this book is about losing true love. I am not particularly fond of this book. It is because it contains so little Edward. We are introduced to the other paranormal group just up the road however. We meet those that live La Push Reservation, home to the Quileute Tribe. Some we’ve been introduced to before, like Jacob Black. Others are new.

If you couldn’t wait for the library to hand you this next book in the series, you read the beginning chapter that was at the end of Twilight. A teaser that leaves you wondering what happens to Bella when she cuts herself at the Cullens house. Her blood makes them thirsty, none more so than Jasper who has the least control. Edward gets Bella to safety but the damage is done.

The next few days he becomes more and more distant to Bella. She’s desperate to break through to Edward when suddenly he starts to talk to her again. Only she wished he wouldn’t. I wished he hadn’t too. He breaks it off with her at the edge of the forest. It is better than the sewers Angel dumped Buffy in, but I was heartbroken and Bella more so. Here it is, I thought, the end of a good story (but just you wait… keep reading).

So deep is her grief over losing Edward she loses herself and becomes a walking shell. It isn’t until half a year later that she can even stick her head above the water. She does it only because Charlie is running scared and pulling ultimatums about going to Florida to live with her mother. Bella can’t do that. Doing that means leaving the magic of Forks behind and relegating Edward to a memory and not a reality. So she asks a friend to the movies… anything without romance. She couldn’t handle that. It’s after the movies that the story gains interest again. She hears Edwards voice… in her head. His voice is a beautiful hallucination warning her of the danger ahead.

What follows next is a series of stupid reckless moves as Bella fights to hear his voice. She turns to Jacob Black to help her fix motorcycles, thinking the danger in riding them would provide her with Edward’s voice. She becomes Jacob’s friend, and over the hundreds of pages left he becomes the sun to warm the desolation of her life. I don’t like Jacob. He keeps pushing the friend boundary, so certain of Bella turning to him and forgetting about Edward despite her repeated warnings that she’ll never love anyone but Edward.

But then the story changes again and it’s like sweet music playing in your mind because you just know Edward’s coming back into the picture. And like Bella, you fear you are going to miss him, lose him again. The book ends on the sweetest note imaginable and you close this sad book feeling ridiculously happy. The ending is four and a half stars.

Eclipse Party Game Ideas

The official countdown for June 30th has begun. That means it’s time to get ready for your Eclipse party. Every Twilight themed party needs games. Below are some of the games you can entertain your party with while waiting in line or at home before/after the movie. (EDIT: Eclipse is being re-released for Bella’s Birthday September 13th, 2010. The movie will be back in theaters September 10, 2010. Who’s excited?)

Forks Yearbook:

You will need paper, pencils, and a timer.

How to Play: Players have one minute to name all the characters, actors, and places in the Twilight Saga that start with any given letter of the alphabet.

Who Wins: The person with the most names listed or with the most unique names listed (derived by crosschecking everyone’s lists) wins.

Eclipse Jeopardy:

If a small party, play as individuals. If a large party divide into teams.

Set up: You will need index cards, pencils, and tape. Come up with 5 questions to fit 6 categories for a total of 30 questions. Put the questions and answers on one side of the index card and the value amount for the question on the other side. Create a board from the index cards by taping them up on a wall or window.

How to Play: A player or team will pick a category and dollar amount. Someone will take the index card down and read the question on the back. A correct response earns the dollar value of the clue. If the response is incorrect, reveal the answer and no points are distributed.

Category ideas include: Individual Actors, Entire Cast, Movies, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Vampires, Werewolves, Humans, and Stephenie Meyer.

Who Wins: The person or team with most money at the end of the game.

Alice’s Visions:

(Game Name taken from Twilight Scene-It.) You will need paper and pencils or a chalkboard/dry erase board and chalk/markers.

How to Play: Players will try to stump the group by drawing scenes from the Twilight and New Moon movies. Each drawing is given three minutes. How many turns taken depends entirely on the amount of players participating, if necessary divide group into teams again. For every drawing guessed correctly, the guesser/team will get a point. In team play, if at the end of three minutes the scene is still unknown the team of the drawer will get one minute to guess. If they get it right the team earns two points.

Who Wins: Team with most points.

Twilight Charades:

Divide the group into Team Jacob/Werewolves and Team Edward/Vampires. Evenly. If there’s an odd number, have the person who sits out designate what the others will act out and keep time.

How to Play: Every member of the Jacob/Werewolves Team will impersonate a vampire or human character. It’s up to Team Edward/Vampires to figure out who they are as quick as they can. Afterwards it’s time to switch and the Edward/Vampire Team will impersonate a werewolf or human character (preferably different humans than already depicted) with the Jacob/Werewolf Team guessing.

Who Wins: The team with the shortest time wins!

Newborn Hunt:

Play in backyard, at a local park, or soccer field. You will need a flashlight and perhaps a pair of extra batteries.

How to Play: This is a mix of hide and seek and tag. Players try to hide from the seeker who guards the jail or safety zone depending on rules. If it is the jail, then all players hit with the light must go to the jail and wait. If it’s the safety zone, players will try to get there while avoiding the seeker.

Additional Ideas for Game Play:

  • Have players form pairs or teams. Any untagged pair or team member can release a caught person from jail.
  • If teams are formed and there’s no jail, just a safety zone, you can play by points. Team with the most safe people at the end of two rounds wins.
  • Play starts with just the seeker, no teams, as the seeker tags other players, these players join in the hunt. The winner is the last man standing. If a new round begins, the last player tagged is now the seeker.

Who Wins: No real winner. Game is ongoing as the seeker position is handed over, usually to first person tagged.

Standard Games:
