Pairings: Jacob/Edward, some Rosalie/Bella, insinuated other slash werewolf/vampire pairings
Disclaimer: Don't own
Summary: Jacob is in denial. Bella is his sister. Edward is in his mind. And apparently, according to Alice, everyone in the wolf tribe are destined to imprint on a vampire...and will also catch a case of the Gay Flu too. Yep. Jacob's in denial.
A/N1: Severely AU and Slashified...and the characters could very well be considered OOC due to the drastic change in circumstances! Don't like? PLEASE DON'T READ! ALSO! Every single pairing EXCEPT for Carlisle/Esme is uncanon.

As they made their way back towards the Cullen's home, Jacob found Edward's fingers threading through his. The wolf cleared his throat, ducking his gaze as he blushed and held onto that cooled hand. They walked in silence, side by side, until suddenly the sound of loud argument and growls drew them towards the border of the Cullen and Pack lands.
"Just go away already!" Emmett Cullen could be heard snapping in immense annoyance. "There are no rogue vampires chewing on the good people of Forks! Stop with the obsessive patrolling of the friggin border!"
Sharing a look, Jacob and Edward headed towards the sound of the growling and arguing, coming upon the cliffs on either side of the boundary, the river running between them the dividing line between vampire and wolf.
"Is everything alright?" Edward asked as he and Jacob arrived on the scene.
Emmett turned towards him, eyes narrowed. "No! Tell this stupid dog to stop coming to the boundary every night and howling nonstop! It's annoying! And who gets sent to deal with him and tell him to shut up so the others can relax and do whatever they're doing? Me!"
Jacob raised an eyebrow. Doesn't he know about Paul and him?
Because Jacob had no doubt that the large wolf on the other side of the cliff was Paul.
Edward surprised him by admitting. Alice says he's not ready to know yet.And when does she think he'll be ready for it?
Jacob wanted to know, surprised.When he doesn't have the urge to commit murder every time Paul's name is even mentioned?
Edward guessed.Makes sense.
Edward cocked his head in Paul's direction before turning to Emmett. "He says its his duty to patrol the border and that your complaining isn't going to stop him from doing it."
"I don't care if he patrols!" Emmet snapped, throwing his hands in the air. "I just want him to shut up so that I don't have to come here every night to tell him to keep quiet and stop annoying us!"
Jacob could feel Paul's gaze on them, on Jacob's hand in Edward's.
The wolf was obviously shocked.
"Not officially." Edward answered Paul's mental question, tightening his hold on Jacob's hand. "But we're working on it."
Jacob looked up, eyes wide, blush darkening.
Edward had just told Paul that they were working on becoming partners!
Paul would tell the tribe.
The tribe might tell his father!
Jacob lowered his head.
He was going to have to join forces with Bella and tell their father at the same time.
That was the only way either of them was going to survive this.
"You mean you finally got wolfy boy to consider you?" Emmett was suddenly all grins. "That's awesome dude!" He hugged them both tightly before backing off, face alit with a mischievous smile. "How's the sex?" He turned to Edward. "Is he an animal in the sack?"
"Oh dear god." Jacob moaned in horror.
Edward was paler than usual, glaring at his brother. "We haven't done anything like that yet."
"Oh. That's a bummer." Emmett shucked his hands into his pants pockets. "I was gonna ask who topped who, because with you two it could be either way. I mean, Jacob's got the wolfy dominance thing going for him, but you got the years going for you. Then again, you're both virgins, so that means that it's still a 50/50 chance of it going either way." He raised an eyebrow, staring at them. "Then again, Eddy boy, there's always your hair
"Emmett if you don't want me to hurt you, you will shut up now." Edward growled.
Emmet snickered, not at all scared. "You're always so sensitive
when it comes to your hair."
The massive, dark silver colored wolf on the other side of the boundary watched them intensely, as if this was very important.
He wasn't even patrolling.
Observing.He can't get over the thought of us, a wolf and a vampire, together. He also can't believe how accepting Emmett is of us.
Jacob nodded, sending Paul a quick look before looking at Emmett, who was just grinning at them.
"Let's go home." Emmett flung his arms around Edward and Jacob's shoulders. "Mom and dad are going to be so happy to hear that Jake's finally giving into his Imprinting."
On the other side of the boundary, Paul froze, large eyes going wider.
"They already know." Edward mumbled. "Alice would have seen it and told them. They're probably waiting for us at the house."
"Right." Emmett nodded, grinning brightly as he led them away. "Bella's over visiting Rose."
Jacob looked up that.
It would be interesting to see his sister around the vampire.
"I tell you, there's something special about us Cullens." Emmett continued to grin. "Why else would wolves be Imprinting on us?"
Edward paused and looked behind him at Paul before turning to Jacob. Everything's just fallen into place for him.
Jacob looked back at the wolf, who'd collapsed into a sitting position, and felt a stab of sympathy.
He could understand the feeling of one's world being turned upside down without any warning whatsoever.
"Do you really mean it?" Bella looked up at Jacob after they'd dismounted from his motorcycle outside of their house. Since Rosalie and Alice had given Bella a ride to their house, Bella had caught a ride back with her twin when they'd both decided to leave later on that night.
"Yeah." Jacob nodded with a sigh. "I can't deny anymore that I'm connected with Edward in a way that shouldn't be normal unless...unless we were Imprinted."
"Alice said that once we Imprint on a vampire with powers, that we sort of share that power with them." Bella grinned. "Which means that I'm prettier than I used to be, more graceful too." She chuckled. "You haven't seen me falling down everywhere or being a klutz anymore, do you?"
Jacob's eyes widened. "I thought that was because you shifted!"
"Nope." Bella grinned, latching onto Jacob's arm happily. "And considering that Edward can read minds, I'm guessing you can too?"
"Only his." Jacob mumbled.
"Its so amazing, isn't it?" Bella asked, more serious now as she sighed. "I mean, we're Imprinting on vampires, and not only us, I mean, the Rez wolves are too." She looked up at Jacob. "If Emmett only knew that Paul had Imprinted on him..." She shook her head. "If only Paul realized that he'd Imprinted on Emmett."
"Edward says that Paul finally realized it tonight." Jacob replied.
"Really?" Bella gasped, eyes wide.
"So it's true." Another voice announced.
The twins turned as one to see Paul emerging from the shadows, hands shucked in his pants pockets, face filled with all sorts of turbulent emotions.
Jacob was surprised that the Packmember was there.
They were the Outcast.
The Pack was supposed to have nothing to do with them.
And yet Paul was here.
"The fact that I always have his scent in my nostrils, why I don't want to kill him in my wolf form...that he annoys the hell outta me but I still try to force him to come to the boundary line every night..." Paul gave a little annoyed growl, running a hand over his hair in agitation. "I've Imprinted on the bloodsucker."
"We have, too, on Rosalie and Edward." Bella stepped forwards, looking a little awkward but determined. "Have you been...stronger...since you've first seen Emmett?"
Paul's eyes narrowed. "How did you know that?"
"It's Emmett's thing, he's very strong." Bella responded, seeming very much an expert when it came to the Cullens. "Rosalie is graceful and beautiful and I got that from her, while Edward can read minds so Jacob can read Edward's mind. We take on whatever ability the vampire we Imprint on has."
"Oh fuck." Paul whispered, closing his eyes tightly. "I can't shift now. The moment I do the Pack is going to know. And if they know that I Imprinted on a leech-." He was obviously edgy and nervous. "Does your father know?"
"No." Jacob replied with a sigh. "But we're going to tell him soon."
"How do you think he'll react?" Paul surprised them by asking.
"Explode." Bella guessed.
"Faint." Jacob shrugged.
Paul nodded, obviously feeling the Pack would react similarly.
Bella looked at Paul, obviously feeling sympathetic.
Jacob, who could understand the confusion the wolf was going through since he too was still coming to terms with the situation, took in a deep breath. "You wanna come in for a while and talk? Our dad's not going to be home till late so we could talk openly about what's going on and, I don't know...try to figure out what it means for us, the wolves in this situation."
"Alice has basically explained this to me, so if you have any questions I'd answer-or if I don't know the answers I could always get them from Alice." Bella offered.
"Why would you help me?" Paul's eyes narrowed suspiciously on them. "You and your family were kicked out of the Rez, out of the place you should have had in the Pack. Why would you help me?"
"Well," Jacob shucked his hands into his jeans pockets. "Because, we know what its like to know that something that's supposed to be impossible isn't, and we know how scary and confusing and frustrating that is."
"Plus, once you and Emmett stop with the fighting and getting on everyone's nerves, we can all have peace once more." Bella replied point-blank.
Paul looked between them, before taking in a deep breath and nodded. "Okay."
With a shared look, the three wolves entered the house.
