It's nice to hear her perspective. Of course she would notice the cold - hadn't really thought about that. I'm just so glad you're back to working on Bonne Foi - I've been missing it. I love how your Edward turned to animals on his own rather than as a result of Carlisle. Somehow it makes him seem stronger.

Amazing! I've been reading Bonne Foi for awhile, and love it. It's awesome to read it from Bella's POV, to see what's going on in her head if you will. I really hope you continue on with this story :)

I am stunned. Do you realize you've just raised the bar of expectation by putting Bella's POV out there in the Universe?
Oh, but it's good. It's so good. :) Thank you.

I loved Bella's POV. It's good to get another side of the story.

Wow. Bella is a wordy little thing, but I like it. I like her. She should be a lot of fun to read.
Favorite line: "If he was some creepy stalker-slash-serial-killer, my full name was probably enough to get him all the information he needed to break into my room and murder me in my sleep."
Thanks for this!

That was great. I loved reading it from BPOV. You knew she *had* to be able to tell that there was something *different* about him. But it was nice to hear her internalizing it all. Now I want to go back a reread EPOV so I can compare them.
Cant wait for more!

Wow – I love BPOV and getting inside Bella’s head. In AU I usually prefer EPOV, but I really enjoyed her thoughts in E&E. She was so very perceptive in noticing the things that were “off” about him, and I loved the conflict between her reasoning and the draw she feels for him – which even the fact that she’s aware of his inhuman qualities can’t stop. Also liked her compassion for him and that she can sense there’s more to him than his cold, hard eyes would indicate. Enjoyed their discussion on Camus even more from BPOV.
And the sex was just as intense as EPOV – w/o the tension of his thoughts on whether he was going to make a meal of her … but you get to see more of her insecurities and vulnerability. Her claim to always have wanted someone to look after her is funny given how much grief she gives present day Edward over attempting to do just that.
Bella has an intelligent and interesting perspective, so I’m hoping you’re inclined to write BPOV for the entire story. And thanks to Elizabethan for this first ch.
