Hmm. Well, I do hope that Edward realises that he can't save Bella by not being with her... she's already been yanked into whatever this 'thing' is. So it wouldn't do him any good to avoid her, blow her off... nothing. They'd both be better off with her with them than not.
And now I'm even more convinced than ever that everything has been orchestrated to get Bella there. The fireworks incident that landed Phil in the burn unit and taken care of by plastic surgeon Carlisle & therapist Webber. And then brought into the school and finally the community. Not to mention all of the things that Bella went through at the school that led to her moving in with Renee. I doubt that the Lauren/Jessica events were orchestrated, but I do believe Bella was shoved in to room with the pair on purpose. The lines about Alice feeling it with Bella, too... I'm just curious as to why. It's leading me down all of these thoughts of genetic engineering and the like. We've seen a few fics touch on that idea like that. But... hmmm. Anyhow, I am all caught up now and, dang it, I want more!
Let's see what we can do about getting you more readers/reviewers... although I do think that'll pick up when Bella & Edward are actually interacting. It's hard to get readers pulled into a story when they spend so much time apart.

Awww. Poor Bella feeling rejected. I agree with Esme, that's not the introduction I'd been hoping for. ;)

Alice's dreams are even more ominous than Bella's. And who was in Edward's car before? Was it just Alice? He wrote it off as soon as he saw her, but... I'm not sure.
I'm almost out of chapters! What am I going to do then?
| GinnyW 31 chapter 12 . 3/25/2011
I keep wondering if Bella's dreams are a premonition of bad things to come. I do feel like an absolute idiot. It wasn't until this chapter that I got the Volterra anagram. *headdesk* Yes, I can be a bit slow at times.
And Bella's hotel stay is certainly sounding like there was more involved than campus housing trying to cover their butts. Is there something in the vitamins?
So many questions, and I have a feeling that answers will be a long time in coming.

Well, although I don't agree with how Edward is going about expressing his opinions, his points are valid. We're looking at a 20 year old man here who has always done as he's told. Lives a life of a monk and lives for his family and is a part of their community. He has every reason to question their lifestyle, however. What they're failing to realise is that if they seemingly gave Edward (and Alice, Jasper, Rose, etc) choices, like the adults had choices before them, then they would be far more compliant. It's the shutting out, shutting down and being told not to ask questions and here are more restrictions that would cause ANY one of that age to act out or try to find themselves.

OMG. Now that has got to be the single worst roommate situation that I've read about. Gah. Bella, Bella, Bella... find a way to stay with your mom! Though, that may ultimately wind up being an even worse situation, I'm not sure on that point yet.
| GinnyW 31 chapter 9 . 3/25/2011
So are Carlisle and Esme really not aware of what happened with Emmett or are they covering. It sounds like they believe the story they were fed by Rosalie's parents. How awful. And what's going on with Bella? It's been several days since the last chapter we saw with her... I can only imagine what she's been subjected to. Well, only one way to find out... off to read more.

Zomig and Stadol. I believe that someone suffers from migraines. Those used to be my standbys.
I can't believe how awful Lauren is being and now I'm wondering how bad Jessica can truly be. And why is Charlie calling? Almost makes me wonder if he somehow found out because of the Leah situation, but maybe I'm just looking too far into things.
| GinnyW 31 chapter 7 . 3/25/2011
Okay, the ending here confused me. Maybe Bella will clear things up.
| GinnyW 31 chapter 6 . 3/25/2011
I can't believe that Lauren and Jessica were so nasty as to do that to her. Obviously that's part of what happened with Leah.
| GinnyW 31 chapter 5 . 3/25/2011
I'm wondering what's up with the electrical charge between them. Is it something more than the traditional soulmate/love at first sight sort of deal? Or is it something else?
| GinnyW 31 chapter 4 . 3/25/2011
Why am I getting images of Stepford Wives? :)
Jessica and Lauren definitely sound like pieces of work.
| GinnyW 31 chapter 3 . 3/25/2011
They're going to get rid of Emmett? Okay, that's making me wonder about how much this is a community versus how much this is a cult. What is the agenda here? I am surprised that Edward, Alice, et al are allowed to go to university. Hmm.
| GinnyW 31 chapter 2 . 3/25/2011
Hmmm. What's going on with Renee there? Was the fireworks incident truly an accident?
I wish they'd had Kindles back when I was a college student!
| GinnyW 31 chapter 1 . 3/25/2011
Okay, this is an interesting premise. Edward is certainly admirable for wanting to keep vows that he made when he was so young. Obviously not all of them feel that way.
