In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 12 -- Time · 1:40pm May 16th, 2018

Alice on a good day is amazing.

“By the way, I love my gift. You shouldn’t have.”

“Alice, I didn’t!”

“Oh, I know that. But you will.”

Bella, Edward, and Alice are walking to the car after school when Alice drops that the Cullens are having a graduation party for her. Bella’s surprised it’s so close to graduation already.

In theory, I was anxious, even eager to trade mortality for immortality. After all, it was the key to staying with Edward forever.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 8 -- Temper · 2:56pm May 8th, 2018

Bella and Jacob go for a walk on the beach. As they talk, it comes out that Quil just imprinted. Specifically, on Emily’s niece, Claire. Who’s two. Naturally, Bella’s horrified and a bit squicked out, but Jacob doesn’t think there’s anything creepy about it.

“But she’s a baby,” I protested.

He looked at me with dark amusement. “Quil’s not getting any older,” he reminded me, a bit of acid in his tone. “He’ll just have to be patient for a few decades.”

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 9 -- Target · 3:22pm May 10th, 2018

When Alice drops Bella off the next morning, she’s got a message waiting for her from Jacob, saying he’s sorry. Bella, however, isn’t feeling very forgiving at the moment and heads upstairs. In her room, she decides to do put the dirty laundry in the hamper, but she can’t find her pillow for the pillowcase. She starts examining her room more closely and realizes some other things are missing: a pair of socks and a red blouse. When she looks in the hamper, a lot of her laundry is missing from

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 15 -- Wager · 3:31pm May 22nd, 2018

Bella’s shocked at Jacob being in love with her, somehow. She tries to tell him that she likes him as a friend, as family, and that she doesn’t love him like that. Jacob, however, won’t take “no” for an answer.

“Just try not to get too mad at me. Because I recently decided that I’m not giving up. There really is something irresistible about a lost cause.”

Going straight from philosophical musings on possible identity shifts through transhumanism to a teenage girl moaning about what to wear. What a great segue.

Edward joins Bella outside the Cullens’ house and they walk inside to Alice has essentially turned it into a nightclub. It’s not long before a bunch of Bella’s “friends” (whose existence feels obligatory at this point) show up and get the party going. Soon, other kids from school, eager to see the inside of the reclusive Cullens’ house, also arrive, making the place pretty crowded.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 7 -- Unhappy Ending · 12:44pm May 6th, 2018

Well, I’m unhappy, so why isn’t the series ending?

Entering Bella’s room, Rosalie says she wants to talk to Bella while Edward’s away, since he rarely leaves her alone and it’s unlikely she’ll get an opportunity like this. Specifically, she’s going to give Bella a more concrete reason as to why she should stay human. And then, guess what: more backstory!

1933. Rosalie was eighteen, and her family was rich because her father had a stable job in a bank.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 24 -- Snap Decision · 12:49pm Jun 10th, 2018

With Jacob gone, Bella’s lying on the ground, waiting to die. With Bella whining, I’m sitting in my chair, waiting for the book to end. Edward asks her what’s wrong, and when she explains, he says Jacob’s “cunning”. The reasons are weird and I don’t care. Edward asks Bella if she really thought Jacob would go out in a blaze of glory to clear the way for him. Given that Charlie is the only character with something approaching a human personality, that option shouldn’t be discounted out of hand.

Even with the threat of the newborn army, Alice wants Bella’s graduation party to go on. After all, Bella can only graduate from high school for the first time once. And in spite of Bella’s protests, the Cullens are taking the newborn issue seriously; they’ll be heading out to Seattle in a week.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 19 -- Selfish · 2:48pm May 31st, 2018

What else is new?

Edward takes Bella home from the meeting and she sleeps through most of the day. Edward notices the charm Jacob gave her and wonders why Jacob can give her presents when she didn’t want any last birthday. Bella says she likes homemade presents. Edward asks if he can give her a hand-me-down to go on the bracelet.

“A charm — something to keep me on your mind.”

“You’re in every thought I have. I don’t need reminders.”

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 27 -- Needs · 2:12pm Jun 16th, 2018

You have them, but they’re not what you think they are.

Bella drives home and heads to her room, sobbing. I couldn’t care less. She realizes she’s been a horrible person, trying to stay with both Edward and Jacob even though she knew that was impossible. By not choosing, she kept on hurting them. That’s the only reason she’s a horrible person? I would’ve thought it was also her obsession with boys and mistreatment of her father, among other things.

Bella wakes up in the morning. The storm’s blown itself out. Three solid pages of Edward and Jacob attempting to poison each other with testosterone before Jacob finally leaves. Ugh.

Pain crackled down my spine and lodged in my stomach as I abruptly realized that this could be the last time I would see him.

In Which I Tolerate Eclipse: Chapter 10 -- Scent · 3:26pm May 12th, 2018

For some reason, Edward leaves before Jacob arrives. He says that, although he doesn’t feel any personal antagonism for Jacob, it’s easier for them. Whatever. As long as they’re not trying to out-macho each other, I’m good. Edward pops out and Jacob pops in. Jacob’s still shirtless, although we actually get an explanation this time: his clothes don’t change when he does, so keeping the number of clothing items down reduces the number of things he has to take off or replace when he gets wolfy.

In spite of Victoria being decapitated, Edward refuses to take chances and quickly dismembers her body. Once he’s done with that, he goes to Seth and helps him do the same with Riley. They gather all the pieces and burn them. Can’t fault them for being thorough, at least.

The thick smoke curled up slowly, looking more solid than it should; it smelled like burning incense, and the scent was uncomfortable. It was heavy, too strong.

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,

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.

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
