In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 2 -- Evasion · 3:03pm Apr 26th, 2018

Oh, dear. One sentence in, and we’re already adding to the Clinginess Meter.

I felt oddly buoyant as I walked from Spanish toward the cafeteria, and it wasn’t just because I was holding hands with the most perfect person on the planet, thought that was certainly part of it.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 22 -- Fire and Ice · 11:13am Jun 6th, 2018

It’s the middle of the night, the storm has arrived, and Bella is freezing. Even with all her layers, she can’t stop her teeth from chattering. And she stutters almost every word a bazillion times:

“W-w-w-w-w-what t-t-t-t-ime is it?”

“I’m ok-k-k-k-k-k-kay.”

“J-J-J-J-Jake, you’ll f-f-f-freez-z-z-ze.”

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 26 -- Ethics · 10:46am Jun 14th, 2018

These characters have ethics?

A few hours or so after the fight, Bella and Alice are still keeping up the sleepover story. Bella’s anxious to see Jacob, even though she knows he’s unconscious.

Each minute, not knowing if Jacob was still breathing or not, had seemed like ten lifetimes.

New Story: Learning to be a Family · 10:31pm Jul 12th, 2016

Learning to be a Family is what I have been working on after I clawed my way out of the Steam Summer Sale. This was written as a collab with Twilight-the-Pony for our mutual friend TadStone.

A Group for Writers with Learning Disorders · 12:28am Dec 17th, 2015

So it seems that a writer named Drakkith has created a new group for Writers With Learning Disorders. I thought that it may be of interest to some of the others out there.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 5 -- Imprint · 3:17pm May 2nd, 2018

Bella and Jacob start talking about Quil. If it sounds jarring coming from the end of the last blog, where they were talking about being human, well, it’s just as jarring reading it. Quil’s the most recent of the Quileutes to wolf out, and he’s ecstatic about it, between the strength, the speed, and the sense of family. Jacob mentions that he and Sam are the only ones who ever really felt bitter about being werewolves, and Sam got over that a long time ago. Bella asks what happened, and, hello,

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 6 -- Switzerland · 2:55pm May 4th, 2018

The moment Bella leaves La Push, Edward’s tailgating her. She doesn’t stop, but continues to Angela’s house. This is the day she’d promised to help Angela with her graduation cards. Basically, they’re doing nothing more than stuffing envelopes and putting addresses on them. The thing is, Angela has a lot of family members; there are a lot of envelopes to stuff and address.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Epilogue -- Choice · 11:11am Jun 19th, 2018

Surprise! Jacob’s the narrator of the epilogue. He manages to be even whinier than Bella. Way whinier. SERIOUSLY.

He and Leah are near a cliff somewhere. (No one’s jumping.) Although Jacob wants to be alone, Leah wants to talk to him, and he’s about as tactful as you can imagine:

“Jump off a cliff, Leah.” I pointed to the one at my feet.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 3 -- Motives · 2:38pm Apr 28th, 2018

The chapter opens with Edward and Bella flying back from their trip to Jacksonville. Bella didn’t like it quite as much as she thought she would, because Renee is supposedly more insightful than Charlie and kept making uncomfortable observations about Bella’s and Edward’s relationship. Like this bit:

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 4 -- Nature · 2:57pm Apr 30th, 2018

With the threat of Victoria looming over her, Bella’s week isn’t the greatest. All the Cullens try to reassure her that she and Charlie are safe — there’s seven of them and one of Victoria, after all — but no matter what they say, she’s in a constant state of very low panic. Jasper can calm her down with his powers (why isn’t Bella immune to that, like with Edward’s and Aro’s mindreading and Jane’s pain projection?), but that naturally wears off once she leaves him. Part of her stress is

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 11 -- Legends · 3:19pm May 14th, 2018

Bella’s having a good time at the bonfire party. All the wolves are there, plus Sue Clearwater (the widow of Harry Clearwater, the guy who died last book), her kids Leah and Seth, Emily, and Kim, the girl Jared imprinted on. Bella notices Seth, in spite of being pretty young, is looking a lot like Jacob did before he became a werewolf, and wonders if he’ll turn out the same way. Everyone quiets down when Billy begins telling a tale, a tale of how the werewolves came to be. In other words:

Jacob and Bella start working on the motorcycles immediately. Jacob chats about his sophomore year at school and his two best friends, Quil (sic) and Embry. Almost immediately, they pop over to the garage to see what’s up.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 17 -- Visitor · 3:12pm Apr 4th, 2018

The vampire waiting for Bella is Alice. Naturally, Bella’s ecstatic about this.

I locked my arms around her, gasping to inhale as much of the scent of her skin as possible. It wasn’t like anything else — not floral or spice, citrus or musk. No perfume in the world could compare. My memory hadn’t done it justice.

Alice is there because, being the seer that she is, she saw Bella jump off the cliff.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 9 -- Third Wheel · 2:26pm Mar 20th, 2018

Time passes for Bella; Jacob’s given her a way to take her mind off things, so she isn’t nearly as miserable anymore. She’s aware that her behavior is self-destructive, but doesn’t care. Also, days of riding a motorcycle means she actually learns how to ride a motorcycle:

I was getting better with my bike, which meant fewer bandages to worry Charlie. But it also meant that the voice in my head began to fade, until I heard it nore more. Quietly, I panicked.

Apparently shirtlessness is a symptom of lycanthropy, because the first thing Bella notices about all four of the other members of Jacob’s pack is that they’re void of thoracic covering. Great.
