| Jane chapter 5 . 2/4
Oh, so sad. Tragic lives wasted. I always wondered why SM chose to have Jake imprint on Ness. Even if they had eventually had a romantic relationship (eeeew), Jake still had to leave his family, his tribe, his whole life. The Quileute Magic would NOT have chosen Ness for him.

This well written but I have a terribly hard time seeing this character as Jake. He just was not the person that was going to throw his life away ofr the imprint or destry his life over Bellas selfishness and diseased soul. Bella was weak like that. Jake wasnt

OMG...Crying here...So sad

Yep, made me cry. Great story. Such a tragedy.

Wow, great story beginning. I always wondered why on earth SM had Jacob imprint on Renesmee, thus necessitating he leave his home, family, friends, tribe and heritage, to roam with his enemies. So wrong. Your story says it so well. I can't wait to see where this goes.
I began reading this on a recommendation in another story. That writer said how she cried reading this. I hope I'm not in for a tearful night!

You are inaccurate. Jacob is doing NOTHING but lie to nessie. He is miserable . He doesnt want to be with her. Thats all he does is lie.

I just dont see Jake as this weak. Being pathetic was Bella's thing. Jake always showed a pretty unusual inner strength for his age. I just dont really see the character in this story. SM's pathetic attempt at Jakes pedophile Happy forever notwithstanding, Jake never even remotely wanted immortality. Your plot also makes very little sense on many levels. If Jake could fight the imprint enough to deny nessie a physical relationship (when that should be impossible if its what nessie wants) he should be able to break it completely. Jake undoubtedly loved Bella deeply, but I just thought the idea of him not only staying around Bella when she turns into his mortal enemy but lives with the sprklers is the height of absurdity

I know I'm late. But this was… perfect. It killed me to keep reading, but I had to. I don't actually have words. Usually, I do but now? I literally don't know how to describe what I feel right now. This was a flawless story, yet everything about it was flawed. Jacob and Bella's tension, Seth's imprint and leaving even, Renesmee and Jacob, Jake and Bells turning into Jacob and Bella—it was a flawlessly tragic ending. That's all I think Ican say whether it makes sense or not. I loved this. It was beautiful and my heart stopped beating when Jacob's did. Really well done.

I cried and cried. I have no good thoughts.
Bella continued to be selfish. She made her choice, and to discuss her regret with Jacob was completely selfish. She already knew what she had done to him. She knew he couldn't leave Reneesmee.
He still felt like he had failed her. How had he failed her? He couldn't save her from herself. I believe he died fully at her hands, that he wasn't turned, he died, and as spontaneous an idea as it was he acted on it. He's gone, he's not in pain.
This story follows the original to a plausible conclusion. It's an excellent story, thought provoking and well written. It reminds us of our choices too. And right now I am choosing the world of fanfiction where Jake and Bella are together and happy and human and with Pack and human babies and...you have written those stories too and they are all excellent.

I was in tears at their first sight of the red house. I agree with Jake, Bella doesn't get to have regret. She made a choice, more than once choosing Edward, death and eternity as a vampire. More than once! To be a stranger to Embry was sad, though I know friends can go their separate ways. In Jake's case, in the Pack's case no one would have gone separate ways, they would have been Pack forever. But for Bella and the imprint they would have been Pack forever.

Billy spent the last years of his life without contact from his son. His son, future Chief and Alpha and beautiful loving soul whose only flaw was to love Bella Swan. Now Bella Cullen. This is so hard. But at the same time this is a plausible outcome following the imprint on Reneesmee.
| PastOneonta chapter 2 . 9/23/2013
But he did fight for her until her heart stopped beating and then he wound up in the net. Now Reneesmee has called him back and he has to go. His memories, his hope, his heart, it is all lost. He doesn't belong with this family or this girl. Leah stayed with him and instead of companionship there is more sadness. She is lost too.

The loss of Jacob and the life that could have been, should have been is painful. But this could be the natural conclusion. Reading on..

When I read shattering glass I wonder if somehow he killed Bella and they were able to die together? I wondered if she would try to change him or if the venom really was poison to him and killed him quickly. As I said earlier, this is so heart breaking. I think in my head (just to have a little warm fuzzy), Bella will wake up in her bedroom the night after the newborn fight, after this very sorrowful dream, and realize that she was making the wrong choice. She will drive as fast as she can back to La Push and make things rigth with Jacob and none of it ever has to come true... Yep, that's how its ending in my head. I truly did love your writing and your story. The hurt each of them feel over the past is just devastating and you paint the picture so vividly! Thank you for sharing

I think Bella and Jake together and the Why now? and What if's hit me harder than Billy's funeral and Embry having a family that Jake can never have. Both were devastating to Jacob I'm sure. Even though it is so sad, it is so beautifully written that I can't stop reading!
