breaking dawn is a real mess when it comes to character development but i love what it does for the clearwaters. they’re honestly more important than jacob when it comes to bridging the gap between the wolves and the cullens. even though they don’t get as much screentime in the movies as i’d like, there are a few little moments that i love that are just awesome, and they’re real blink-and-you-miss-it moments.
first off, seth at the wedding is just great. him and edward’s bromance is my favorite thing ever, and i’m sad that it’s not more prominent. but the really great moment comes after the pack shows up to stop jacob’s temper tantrum. seth lingers behind for a moment when they leave, looking back at edward and bella because he wants to stay, but sam yells at him and he follows them into the woods. he’s so sad and i just !!! i want him to stay and have fun
then, the obvious esme sandwich scene which gives us some super lowkey foreshadowing to what happens in alice’s vision.
but the moment that really did it for me (which i just noticed when i watched bdpt1 recently) is when sam’s pack is attacking at the end of the movie. seth and leah show up in wolf form. jacob is MIA having his own moment and can’t give them any kind of orders, so they hesitate for a minute, watching the pack fight the cullens. leah sees alice getting overwhelmed by one of the wolves (i think it’s jared, but it could be quil or embry, i’ll have to go back and look) and makes her own decision to charge in and save alice which is such an awesome bit of character development!! it’s very easily missed but it’s SO GOOD. and seth watches her do this and then jumps in to join the fight.
and then we get the best scene ever imo, where the cullens + seth and leah are all standing together against sam’s pack and i love it. i just love it. and jacob charges out too and it’s great. i’m a slut for cullen/black pack solidarity.
Authors’s Note: This is pretty messy because I really needed something to be up- so here it is. Sorry for not posting been so busyyyyy. Lovessss xx
You went to the same school as the pack, you had easily became friends with Seth and that had drawn you to La Push. You were timid and shy, only speaking when spoken too and were use to keeping thoughts to yourself. People thought that you were so cute and innocent, a lot of people becoming protective of you.
One night you were invited to one of the campfires that the pack were doing. You easily gave in when Seth gave you puppy eyes and a little pout. “Cool! But uh wear something warm!” He said giving you a little cheeky smile before bouncing of to class.
Never in your life have you ever met Paul. You always heard Seth and Embry going on about him but you never questioned about it.
When you showed up, e/c eyes cast down your h/c hair covering your face as shifted from foot to foot. “Y/n! Seth told me you were coming.” You glanced up in surprise to see Embry who immediately wrapped you in a hug. You smiled up at him as Seth joined next to him,
“C’mon! The stories starting soon!” Seth chirped a massive smile on his face. You giggled when he grabbed you pulling you towards a log. “We’re just waiting for the others to show up.” Embry sat next to you, food somehow in his hand.
“What’s the story about?” You asked softly as you watched the fire, returning your eyes to Seth.
“Well it’s a legend between our tribe. Saying that we are descended form wolves.” Seth said, watching your face. You raised your eyebrows curious about it. He flicked your nose, “No spoilers for you.” You giggled rolling your eyes.
The sound of crunching leaves alerted you, you looked up to see a group of boys, with no tops on coming out the woods. A blush was on your face as you hid behind Seth’s arm. Embry noticed, as did Seth and started to giggle at your shy state.
“Don’t worry. They won’t bite.” Embry teased lowly to you. All you did was poke out your tongue. As your e/c eyes wandered back to them, they were shoving each other until your eyes landed on a pair of brown ones.
Paul was surprised to see a girl seated between Seth and Embry. He could obviously see how shy you were, just by they way you tried to hide behind Seth. “Awe look. Someones got a girlfriend.” Jared teased beside Paul, immediately getting shoved by Paul. Paul looked back up only to lock eyes with your pair of e/c eyes. He sucked in a breath, stepping back in surprise, eyes widening.
“Awe Paul has his imprint.” Jared teased shoving Paul forward who immediately shoved him back. “Quit it!”
Your eyes widen in surprise. There was a tug pulling at your heart. A tingly sensation coming over you as Seth and Embry watched you with knowing eyes.
Seth and Embry eyed each other and nodded.
Months later you and Paul had grown closer. So close that he and the pack revealed their secret to you; shifters. It took a while for you to take complete hold of the situation but then on out- everything was good.
Everyone knew about you and Paul getting closer, everyone trying to warn you that he was no good. He’s a hot-headed, violent person and can hurt you easily. This was mostly from people at school and from a few of the pack members.
Again you heard it. Seth wanted to hang out but you were hanging out with Paul in the woods, “I’m sorry Seth… But we can hang out tomorrow?” Your voice was soft, you e/c eyes peering up at his brown pair that seemed a little bit hurt.
“N-no. T-that’s okay…” He walked away before you could say anything, a coat of guilt covered you and your heart started to throb.
You soon started to listen. Everyone was telling you to keep your distance, so you did. You even stopped going to La Push. Only hanging out with Seth, Leah and Embry.
Guilt still ran through you, you hadn’t even warned Paul and that’s what made it worse. At school you had seen him get angered more easily, get into fights, all the while people were telling you had done the right thing. But it didn’t feel like it.
As you sat at your desk away from Paul who was staring you down, you placed in your earphones even though your phone was dead, just so it was a sign of, please don’t talk to me. A pair of girls sat beside you,
“Oh my gosh. Did you see Paul? How he beat up that poor boy?”
“Girl, yes! He’s fucking crazy.”
You glanced over at Paul who’s, fists were clenched. The girls tried to seem quite but he heard and you knew he did.
You couldn’t take it after hearing a certain comment,
“Good Y/n leaving him.” Anger boiled in you when she said that.
Ripping out your headphones, slipping out your seat, you glared at the two girls who were shocked at your outbursts, everyone was. You weren’t like that. Always calm and collected. But they had pushed it.
Stomping towards Paul who also sported a shocked face, you grabbed it and smashed your lips against his. Everyone gasping in surprise.
He kissed back immediately, a smirk against your lips.”I’m sorry,” you muttered drawing back from him, “about everything I put you through. That I listened to what they all said…”
Instead of saying anything else, he dragged you out the room, grabbing your bag in the process, as soon as you both were hidden in the woods. He turned to you and picked you up into a kiss.
Sweet and long with so much want.
“I missed you. God I fucking missed you.” He sighed, nuzzling your cheek.
Wrapped into each others warmth you realized something, “Paul my grades! Paul the rumors!” You panicked bouncing in his arms. He groaned as you tried to climb out his grip.
“I thought we were having a moment!”
“I thought I wanted a good school history!”
“It’s just one period!” He whined. You shifted to look at him with a pout. A roll of his eyes, “fine. But you owe me a lot of time.” A smirking plastering his face, sending a wink to you. “Lucky for you…It’s Friday.”
“My son will be teaching us how to fight against these Newborns, as he and his sister have experience dealing with them.” Carlisle explained to the wolves. Edward spoke before Jasper could get a word out. “They want to know who Y/N is. They’ve never seen her before.” He translated for the wolves.
Thresholds are border areas where one force, power, or element encounters another. These
meeting areas are potentially the most highly magically charged of all. Thresholds exist everywhere:
the seashore, that transitional area where ocean meets land; the foot of mountains, where land begins
to rise; and caves, the subterranean thresholds between Earth’s outer and inner powers.
There are architectural thresholds: doors and windows. There are thresholds in time: twilight
and dawn, where an incoming power approaches before the out-going power has completely
dispersed. Life cycles are thresholds: the birth of a new baby, particularly a first child whose birth
transforms someone into a parent. Death is a threshold between one existence and the next. Someone
who lingers in a halflife is described as having a foot in both worlds, straddling the threshold. Any
transformative ritual is defined as a threshold, by virtue of its very capacity to transform. There are
thresholds on the body: the mouth is the threshold between thought and speech.
Thresholds are simultaneously the areas of greatest magical potential and also of extreme
vulnerability. A vast percentage of protective amulets, rituals, and spells are designed to guard
thresholds and the transformative process. In fact, every magic spell can be perceived as a
transformative threshold, from a past that has left something to be desired toward the future that the
spell hopefully produces.
Most thresholds consist of a simple boundary: with one foot you stand inside the house, with
another you stand outside. If your feet are small enough and your balance is good, you can stand
poised, neither inside, nor outside.
With one foot you stand in the river or ocean, with the other, you stand on the land. The ancient
Egyptians called their country “the land of the red and the black,” because there was a distinct
division, a visible dividing line between the black fertile land of Nile silt and the stark red land of the
desert. You could literally stand with one foot in each color. Each color also typified a different kind
of magic and a different spiritual ruler. The black belonged to Osiris, with his arts of orderly
civilization; red belonged to his brother Seth, anarchic, chaotic Lord of Magic.
These are simple boundaries: you can hop from one to the other. There are also expanded,
exponentially super-magically charged thresholds.
