Well, I don't really know lol I personally wasn't thinking we would give them a special name but someone talk about it in the last thread and had this idea and so it was add to the title.

Thanks for telling me about the title song, I'm going to fix it now too

Rhi!

I'm loving all the quotes! So many great moments... and reading them really makes me see how angst they really are...

The BlackSwan thing was said at the last thread and got added... if not everyone like it we can change it or take it away...

I'm so excited that we have a thread. And to finally be here posting on it. This was the first thread I visited after the intro thread.

I love all the quotes too. They really are angst-y. I think that's a part of why I love them so much. I like a bit of fire in a relationship.

I like the BlackSwan thing. It's clever. Just wondering where it came from.

I've got a couple more songs that I think fit.

Collide - Howie Day
Never Wanna See You Cry - Richard Ashcroft
Make This Go On Forever - Snow Patrol

I also think The Kill, from 30 Seconds to Mars describes Jacob's thoughts at the end of Eclipse so well...

Yeah I agree.

No relationship is perfect. Not everyone can be happy ALL the time. It's just impossible. Emotions are rollercoasters of life, and I feel that Jacob and Bella represent that greatly.

Plus, in this relationship it's between fire and ice (Jacob and Edward).

This thread is going to be my new home. If I remember it being here. I keep forgetting we have a Twilight board now because it's still in the 'new threads' and I never check there.

Lol, I've forgotten that it's here a few times.

For songs I thought of Best Friend In the World by David Corey for Jacob in New Moon and Cheers Darlin' by Damien Rice for Jacob at the end of Eclipse.

And I love the BlackSwan thing, btw.

I've never heard that song from David Corey... I'l have to look into it now

Exactly. I love the fact that they can be mad at each other. They don't think that by being mad they'll be loving each other less... they can fight and make up and it's just too amazing to see them in their habitat and being able to just be.

Girls, don't forget about our thread!

I love couples that can fight. It's a sign of passion and willingness to disagree. If a couple gets along all the time, it doesn't read to me like extreme compatibility like it does to other people. If a couple can argue and then make up, it shows that they're not afraid to really let the other person see them-flaws and all.

I couldn't agree more.

What I especially love about their fights is that they both have the maturity within their relationship to agree to disagree. In New Moon and in Eclipse Jacob can not understand why Bella wants to be with Edward or why she's okay with the Cullens being vampires, but he lets it go. And even though Bella can't understand why Jacob hates them so much, she also just decided not to fight over it anymore.

The bickering but being happy with each other despite the fights is part of what makes the relationship so real. It's also a large part of why Bella and Edward's relationship seems so out of balance and just not real to me.

Yeah, I hope it's okay to say this but one thing I didn't like with E/B was that Bella couldn't get mad at him, especially in Eclipse and that really annoyed me and I don't want to make comparison but it's just to say that I love how with Jacob they had those fights and that she get mad at him, like you guys said it feels real even when their argue over stupid reasons because that's what people do anyway, and in Eclipse we can really feel behind those little fights that there's passion there and also frustration, from Jacob because Bella won't admit what she really feels about him and from Bella because she must have fought her true feeling for him, she was kinda in denial and she just wanted him to be her friend but then like she admits later it was hard to imagine them being just friends when they actually loved each other like this.

Rhi So glad you're here now.

Love the songs you picked.

How Cute Is She is the one who first mentioned the Black Swan thing............not sure if it was started on LJ or she made it up. But, I really like it.

Melsie - thanks for adding the quotes and everything.


I like the songs you guys are coming up with. I'll try to think of a few later.

So, true................you definitely feel something from both sides through all those little fights. Bella really was in denial and fighting herself.
