I'm sorry, EclipseRox, completely my mistake. I thought it was an interesting question, and I didn't want to miss it.Jazz Girl wrote:Credit where credit is due, that fabulous question was posed by EclipseRox, not me.
Jazz Girl, your take on Jasper is always very interesting to me. I'd never seen the similarities between Jasper and Edward that you seem to see. Jasper has been to the wars, and the corresponding edginess and mercenariness that you see in Jasper and some other veterans are somehow missing in Edward. As wise and experienced as he is, as much human and superhuman evil as he's seen, he's still somehow more innocent than Jasper in that way. Other than that, though, I can see all the similarities that you suggest. I'll spend some time thinking about it.
I see Edward as a worrier - he will always be on the lookout for more deception by the Volturi ("They'll try to pick us off one-by-one.", or something like that?), discovery by humans, and threats from other vampires. After werewolves, vampires, and shapeshifters, who knows what other dangerous supernatural creatures are out there in the Twilight world? So I don't think he'll give in completely to the ecstacy of life with Bella and Renesmee, but I do agree that he's likely to be a lot happier on a day-by-day basis than we've ever seen him. As Carlisle thinks in MS, "Edward deserves happiness. He's owed it!"mikkib wrote:He was always sort of brooding and pessimistic that is how I see him.
Thanks for listening. -Ariadnee
