Banner by dontcallmeLeeLee 

Every Rose Has Its Thorn is the continuing story of Jacob and Bella. It picks up where Journey to a New Day ends: The Cullens have left Forks, there is a "treaty" between the Wolves and the Volturi, and Bella has chosen Jacob above all others. It would seem life should be perfect, but it isn't.

What has happened to threaten Jacob and Bella's happiness? Is this a concern only for Jacob and Bella, or is there a bigger conspiracy behind it all?

Warning: This story contains: controversial, mature and sensitive subject matter, violence, coarse language, possible character death(s) and sexual content

Josh makes sense, since Renesme wasn't born, he can't see Jake's imprint.  Glad Josh made it.  Will he & Leah imprint on each other?



Author's Response:

No, he and Leah will not imprint on each other. I'm a pretty liberal person, but the kid is sixteen and Leah is about twenty five or so. Something about that is just not right. I do have other plans for Leah to be revealed in the next chapter during a light moment the pack has (because I think we all deserve a light moment).

Thanks for the review!

I think you are going against canon with the broken imprint.  In Eclipse (I think) jae tells Bella that the wolf is whatever the imprint needs him to be.  I would think that a woman who discovers she can't bear anymore children would need a loving, supportive, husband.

 

Given your premise, does it imply that the wolves Josh didn't see an imprint for are sterile?



Author's Response:

Thanks for the review and your questions! I did actually sit and think about how to fit in a theory with what was known from canon (by canon, I only include that which was written in the published novels. I do not incorporate information that came AFTER publication of the novel(s) in question because in my opinion doing so is back tracking, cheating, and making up crap to cover mistakes rather than fessing up to them).

Everything all the characters knew about imprints and imprinting in canon was based on oral histories passed down through generations. They were assumptions, not scientific facts. Jacob saw into Sam, Jared, and Quil's miinds and learned how each of them viewed their imprints at that time. As you may recall, the actual reason for imprinting (in canon) and having imprints was unknown. Sam had one theory, and Billy had another, but both theories centered around passing on the wolf gene to their progeny.

Nothing about imprinting was engraved in stone and there was proof that the oral histories--and what little was passed to Old Quil and others from generations past--omitted information, had incomplete information, or carried incorrect information. An examples of this is Leah phasing--there was nothing in either the histories or legends about femaie wolves exisiting. Either the histories were incomplete, inaccurate, or new things developed in wolves that had not been experienced before, which would mean, more new things could develop. You know, like evolution.

Furthermore, in canon, it was believed that imprinting was extremely rare, yet at the end of the saga, of the ten wolves, half had imprinted, and that's just after a few months of being a wolf and pretty much never leaving their county! Who knows what the numbers would have been a year from then!

As for Josh not seeing imprints because they were sterile? I think not. He still saw Emily tied to Sam, but the bond had changed. That's what he noted when he called Sam at work that day.

Thanks for your input and I hope I've answered your questions. I can certainly understand your reasons for this (my interpretation, and the outcome of my story) to not be true, but I have always see imprinting as a way of stripping away free will and turning the wolf in question into a slave. It's no different than living in a drug induced haze, thinking that's happiness. IMO, of course!

Hmm, I wonder if it is a familiar set of leeches?

Hmmm, I wonder too. Well, not really :)

Date: February 07, 2012 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 1 - Happy Birthday Bella

Wow.  I forget in the previous story, did Jake imprint on Bella?  If not, it's going to be an interesting conversation with Bella



Author's Response:

Ah, the question with the not so short answer. At the end of the previous story (ch. 15) I did not "spell" it all out, but the information was there. It was the night that Nessie was conceived in canon (and I don't like to ignore canon if I can help it). He gets taken over by some weird "wolfie" thing just as Bella is getting hot and heavy with Edward. Edde and Bella don't do the deed, the one and only egg that can ever become Nessie (and thus Jacob's one and only possible imprint) is never fertilized by Eddie, thus Nessie can never exist and Jake can never imprint. 

The problem is, the reader knows this (if they figured it out, or they asked me) but the characters do not. I hope it sounds interesting for you because that was my intent!

Oh yeah, that egg turned into Trevor.

Pretty heavy stuff.  I hope they can spring the boy



Author's Response:

Spring the boy, not spring the boy, as usual, you'll have to wait to find out BUT the more exciting news is the "boy" is my first original character (I think)! And yeah, heavy stuff. The snowball's forming and it's going to start rolling soon! :)

Very weird about the wolf being torn about his imprint being created.



Author's Response:

Yeah, it's weird, but so's the whole concept of imprinting... only thing is we've gotten used to imprinting. Hey, I figure, if you're happy, why would you want to change anything?

 

Thanks for the review, more to come soon!

Very interesting.  I wish things would look up for Edward though.



Author's Response:

Oh hon, I got to tell you, if you're looking for a HEA for Edward, you've come knocking on the wrong door. I don't hate the guy, but it's hard for me to imagine Bella keeping her distance from him if everything were wonderful, in the same way I don't believe she would have ever stayed away from Jake if the Jake/Nessie imprint hadn't happened in canon. That girl has no self control! But yeah, I'll give you this... Edward won't die in this one, promise.

Celebrity, tragedy, alcohol and excess dissolve what seems to be indestructible… or does it? Can love rise above fame and indulgence? Or does Hollywood truly alter what is good in a man?

I sort of knew Charlie was a pirate, from the way Edward scoffed earlier on when Bella mentioned his commission.

 

What did Bella think was going to happen when he saw how she "mended" his clothes?

Loved the chapter.  Glad Alice came up with clothes that fit Bella.  Loved the " Blue Door".  I think Edward needs to teach Bella some hand to hand combat moves for when Newton tries to take advantage again.
