Hi Allyson...Thanks so much for reading my Re-Union fanfic, I know it's pretty different and asks a lot of fans (especially team jacob fans!), but you've got to admit it's an interesting concept!
It was actually another Twilight Saga member who came to me after reading previous fanfics I'd written and wanted me to write the idea of Jacob as an abusive husband. I know it's a stretch as Jake's a kind guy who cares about Bella, so I just had to think about what could turn someone as nice as him into that sort of a man....I figured years of feeling second best and knowing he's not her first choice really, plus booze would probably take it's toll on him and the relationship.
I know it's not a nice subject, and it's not a nice thing to do to Jake's character, but I thought it was an interesting concept and I wanted to see if it would work. Things don't always have a happy ending, if Twilight was real perhaps this is one of the outcomes that Bella could have ended up with.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my stuff :)
