I adore Alice and Jasper. They're a completely different kind of couple than Edward and Bella. You don't get as much description of their relationship or their dialogue, because they're not the main focus of the book, but I think that mystery just makes them even more appealing. I think their quiet, romantic compassion for one another is rare and special. They seem to exist on this plane outside of reality - they just understand the other person, so they don't feel the need to show it up with PDA and lots of talk. Lastly, my friends like to compare me to Alice (I'm short, hyper, friendly, energetic) and my boyfriend to Jasper (quiet, protective). That makes it even better!
