some people have been asking why anyone would like him- and I am here to stand up for him.
1st of all, I never wanted the relationship that any of the characters had- not Bella and Edward, DEFINATELY not Nessie and Jake, DEFINATELY not Emmett and Rose, not Angela and Ben (bah- humans
) Emse- Carlisle? maybe.
but hands-down, the winner for me is the love between Alice and Jasper.
they share an intense and intimate love, yet Jasper respects Alice- he is not controlling and overbearing, annoying or obnoxious, selfish or vain. He allows Alice her own desicions and her own space, and I respect that- its somethign that I don't believe many other couples have. the share an undeniably immense love.
secondly, who woudn't want to be around Jasper with his power? He is fun-loving and competive, and his attitude is infectuous! literally!
he can control my emotions ANYDAY!
"Jasper was, in his own way, just as talened as Alice with her uncannily accurate predictions. Jasper's medium was moods rather than future, and it was impossible yo resist feelign the way he wanted you to feel." pg 30, Breaking Dawn.
hthirdly- he's hot. wether Jackson Rathbone is cute or not, the Jasper Hale in my head is incredible! he's beautiful- he's a vampire!
"And then Jasper's face was peering into my window, his honey hair silver in the weak moonlight that worked through the clouds." pg 29, Breaking Dawn
fourthly- irresistable qualities:
"Now thatI could see, the scars were Jasper's most dominatnt feature. It was hard to take my eyes off his ravaged neck and jaw- hard to believe that even a vampire could have survived so many sets of teeth ripping into his throat... Any vampire that saw Jasper would have the same reaction. The scars were like a lighted billboard. Dangerous
, they screamed. How many vampires had tried to kill Jasper? Hundreds? Thousands? The same number that had died in the attempt."
-B.D. pg 402
and it goes on to say "Jasper both saw and felt my assesment, my caution and he smiled wryly"
I could go on for days, but I think I've made enough points....
