You did a wonderful job with this story and you did it beautifully! It was truly a joy to read!

It was fun to read this chapter, what with Emmett getting beat by little old Bella! It's so nice to read how happy Edward is with how things have turned out! He and Bella sure paid their dues to be this happy!

Charlie always has had my sympathy and my admiration! Considering all he was asked to accept, I thought he did quite well! He even managed to make it through Jake's revelation without having a coronary!

You have done such a good job with all this from Edward's point of view, it has been a delight to read!

I think sometimes that Edward wants to nominate Seth for sainthood! Yet another example is how easily he forgives Bella for breaking a couple of his bones! It always has ticked me off, the way everyone but Alice and Edward nearly ruined Bella's first encounter with her child!

Amazing indeed, that Bella came out of the transformation so calm and in control of herself!Everyone but Edward still thinks she may succumb to the newborn bloodlust. Maybe not Alice, since she can see Bella's future so much more clearly now.

Yes indeed, Bella had the transition they all wish they could have had! Poor Jasper, all set to counter any newborn reaction, except the one he got! Now he thinks there's some weakness in his character!

Gotta love Alice and her dressing Bella to suit her taste and not Bella's! Luckily she only does it out of love! It must have have taken a weight off Carlisle's shoulders to get the treaty hashed out with Sam.

This is so great, having all this background  from Edward's point of view, something sadly missing from the original! You did a great job, by the way!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 16, 2015 03:38 AM · On: Restoration

This chapter is a real relief for all the family, and Jake, too, I suppose. It's the calm after the storm, when things kind of settle and try to regain normal again. That may be a bit overly ambitious, considering how unique these circumstances are!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 16, 2015 03:05 AM · On: Angel

A perfectly wonderful chapter , I loved all the little pieces of memory!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 16, 2015 02:51 AM · On: Rising

If it had been anyone else but Edward, I'm not sure they would have continued to try to resuscitate Bella as long as he did!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 16, 2015 12:03 AM · On: Time

As always with this saga, some good and some very bad! It's coming down to the moment of truth and they had best be getting ready! Poor old, battered Jake, just about to receive another body blow!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 11:39 PM · On: Untruth

I understand how Bella feels asking Edward to promise to be there for their child. I just don't think she realizes what she is asking of him. Thankfully, it didn't have to come to that!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 11:15 PM · On: Consciousness

I understood where Leah was coming from, but still, she didn't need to dump all that hatred and bitterness on poor little Bella! It was such an epiphany for Edward to finally understand that his child was not evil, to hear how much it loved Bella and him. Rose was thrilled the baby knew her voice as well!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 10:39 PM · On: Inevitable

It always helps to have a bit of humor sprinkled throuout the angst! I've always loved when Jake threw that dog dish at Rose! Of course I thought it was pretty funny when she made it for him anyway!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 09:52 PM · On: Choice

A tense and very emotional chapter! Makes you real glad it's them and not you! Can't imagine that much pain and anxiety!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 07:15 PM · On: Nourishment

What a seesaw! First a bright spot, with the blood working so well and so quickly, then a ceasefire from the wolves. Now that awful sound of Bella's rib breaking!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 08:41 AM · On: Strategy

Leah must have shown up there at the end of the chapter. Bella is just a tad too forgiving of the wolves, especially considering they would kill her and the baby, and as many vampires as they could!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 08:08 AM · On: Resentment

Jacob and Seth, bless their hearts, are more concerned with doing the right thing, than following Sam's murderous plan! Good thing they showed up at the Cullen house, plus it gives them all something to think about besides bickering among themselves!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 07:42 AM · On: Judgement

Poor old long-suffering Jacob, loves her enough to try, but knew it all along it wouldn't work! At least Edward got a minute alone with Bella!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 07:07 AM · On: Visitor

All the things he feared have come to pass, so Jake is really pissed!  Which can hardly compare to what Edward is experiencing!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 06:34 AM · On: Intervention

Okay, now he's going to try to put up a good front! I sure wish him luck with that! It will probably work about as well as what he's planning concerning Jake!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 06:15 AM · On: Pain

You wish it were so, my poor miserable vampire! You would give anything on this earth to save your wife from this hellish experience, and she won't let you! It has to be excruciating!

Reviewer: k1942 (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2015 05:59 AM · On: Motherhood

He just cannot get over this self-hatred that convinces him he's a monster, cursed to Hell! Even Esme sharing her memories with him couldn't overcome that! Now, his Bella's scream will tear into him!
