Really!!! I always imagined him as really good looking, in the beginning it talked about how he looked like a model so i just imagined him like one....[/quote]
I think I must have missed that bit first time round. I have a very annoying habit of wanting to read too quickly, end up scan reading and missing minor details such as that! - Makes the re-readings more fun through

Everyone is so amazed in BD at Bella and her self-control when she breaks off her hunt so she doesn't hurt the humans. But, didn't Carlisle essentially do the same thing, just in a bit of a different way? I become more impressed, though, everytime I read MS and the descriptions throughout of the blood desire first hand. It just makes his ability and desire to be good that much more impressive.
And, there is also his unshatterable calm. He's so analytical by nature that he just knows that there is a solution to everything if you look hard enough. That allows him to be a calming presence when things are getting rough. I look at him as almost as effective as Jasper.
And, finally, his respect for all others. It is easy to understand why most people ascribe at least some (if not most or all) of Edward's selflessness to Carlisle's influence. Carlisle is seriously offended by the idea of anything he does ever causing anyone else pain or discomfort, even an enemy.
All I can say is WOW!
