Yes, I think you're right.  Mercy's contrary streak is as natural to her & ingrained as the control thing is with werewolves, so there would continue to be friction with the pack.

Yep, but she would also take her position from Adam, and that would put her above the rest of the pack and everyone who is below Adam wouldnt it?  And I dont think that Sam and Bran would be a problem because shes like family to them, and they are used to her not listening to them.

Check in with some people who are in workplaces where there's a clear chain of command.  Just because person A "has" to obey person B it doesn't mean there isn't friction & petty disobedience. 
Have you ever read Robert Heinlein's book "The Number of the Beast"?  Check out the 'white mutiny' in that!

Boy, that's hard to answer quickly.  Basically, he weaves together several of his adult SF books through a scientist discovering a way to move between realities, a bit like the TV show Sliders, except he keeps better control of it.  His daughter, her ex-military & quickly acquired husband, & the scientists ladyfriend who finagles him into marrying her are the crew of the possibility ship.  They discover another race of intelligent beings have discovered the same process & are killing off others who do the same, so they have to run.  They meet Lazarus Long & a lot of his other major characters.

i dont think she would have that much of a problem with sam and bran and adam, i think the rest of the pack would really be unhappy following her (being a coyote) and she would know when to behave because like she said - she controls her emotions as to being controlled by them.

no. i kinda hope she chooses sam. even from the beginning. there's something about him that makes me feel like he loves Mercy a LOT. not just as a broodmare. that he just doesn't want to admit it even to himself because if she chosses adam he'll(samuel) be so hurt. but wouldn't that get under his skin if she and adam have kids?

Since this seems to, at least breifly, be turning into a who will she choose thread... I wuold like to say I don't want her to end up with Sam. He may love her, but I think she loves him like an old friend, and is in lust with him, but not it love. I'm not sure if she's in love with Adam either, but she does seem to be leaning more that direction.

I think Adam would be healthier for her though.  Hes seems to honestly be making more of an effort to control himself around mercy.  And Sam it seems like just does stuff when he knows that she is going out with Adam.

that is true but its also because he is a patient hunter and gets jealous of adam and doesn't want to be out of the running

Given how little (except for the recent crisis situations) Mercy ordinarily interacts with the pack, I wonder how much influence they *can* have on her?  They can, as a group, do some limited magic, but are they united enough to try to use it, if it can be bent that way, to push her whichever direction they'd prefer?

I doubt they could do it without Adam, Warran, Honey (I think she would help Mercy), and/or Darryl (I think he would help her too) noticing.  And if Sam really wanted her as a mate in human and wolf then he wouldnt let them get away with it.
