They were probably my favorite foreign vampires. The whole juxtaposition of calm answers mixed with completely homicidal threat at the Volturi was hilarious and a bit scary. I especially loved that they were one of the older ones. For some reason, when I realized that they began to remind of some of the men at the senior center I volunteer at: Sweet, calm, and capable of being their own polar opposite in a conversation (did that make any sense?)
Also, I got a kick out of it becasue I know a Stefan, except he's a Polish percussionist/engineering student, not an ancient romanioan vampire. >.<
It may help to understand human affairs to be clear that most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused, not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally bad, but by people being fundamentally people.
