I think it's interesting how Jasper seems to be the only one besides Carlisle who developed his conscience on his own. Esme, Edward, Rosalie, and Emmett had Carlisle there to sort of guide them into not wanting to kill people, and Alice had her visions of being with the Cullens. I know a big part of it was due to his gift, but it makes me think a lot about how much more difficult it is for him to maintain the lifestyle. Yes, he was immersed in the traditional style of vampire living for a long time and so I can understand how it might be difficult to change to something else, but it almost seems as if it might be easier to live the Cullen way, because he's experienced the emotions of his victims and the way he did develop that conscience on his own.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this? I'm not quite sure where I was going with this, but it crossed my mind, and I was wondering if anybody had anything to say on this.
