I'm liking your Jasper even more with each chapter. I love his response to his first sight of Alice, but ... even more, I love his reaction to his first sight of Jake - Princess Bride reference is perfect!

dreaming of Custer, talking about his failure and then melding into caring for Mary Louise, making her promises... will he be able to keep them or will he fail, too? hm...
oh! his first peek at Alice! love at first (ass) sight! *snicker*

Oh wow. Jasper has a lot to think about now that he's started his new job. His fascination with Mary Louise and her fascination with him is quite interesting. His descriptions of Emmett and Edward are hilarious. I can't wait until he meets Alice just to see if he recognizes her. Thanks for writing. :D

what's Matlab? caterpillar eyebrows... priceless description! lmao
his relationship with his mother... they know each other so well.
I find it interestingthe pondering over Mary Louise... recognizing the attraction to her but not in a sexual way... his caring heart wanting to assist... will he help her find her wings again and soar back to heaven? only time will tell... and then of course there is Emmett.

The second chapter was even better than the first, excellent

This chapter came so soon - yay! (That's *not* what she said hopefully.) I really liked it, of course. I love the idea of Jasper trying to imagine if he could kiss Mary Louise to figure out if he really was attracted to her. I've done the exact same thing! And poor J having to take a Matlab class. Yuck.
“I just want you to be happy, my boy,” she said in her Motherly Tone. I could practically feel her hand smoothing over my hair the way she always did when she said that. I even smiled a little as I popped the top off my beer with the cast iron opener bolted into the side of the food pantry. “Jasper Thomas Whitlock, was that a beer you just opened?”
I chuckled. “Yes, Ma. But don’t worry. It’s a Shiner Bock.”
(This paragraph is so full of win. Motherly Tone. Smoothing his hair. Permanently-attached bottle openers. SHINER BOCK.)
Edward’s caterpillar eyebrows did that puppy dog thing.
(LOL. I can exactly picture this. And J's reaction was perfect.)
It was fascinating seeing what costumes people chose for themselves, and how differently they behaved behind the makeup and the masks.
(Such a little psych major!)
She looked like an angel, I thought. Like a fallen angel, trying to remember, trying to understand where she was and why she’d lost her wings. But the expression on her face when she’d smiled at me- it was as if she had recognized me.
(Aww...she knows, somehow, that you'll be important Jasper! I bet she can see the beginnings of your light...)
The interaction between the boys is hilarious. And I can't wait to see party from Jasper's POV! )

Best lines of the chappie here:
I slid my fingers down on the neck of my guitar to play lower, slower chords that matched the frown I felt pull my brows together.
Emm, of course, gets the last word: “Are you asleep yet?” Emmett. I swear to Jesus… “You’re not whacking off, are you?"
Is a very good start! Can't wait to see more on how the dynamic between Jacksper and M.L. develops, and on what the dealio is with M.L. recognizing him? OH. INTRIGUED.

I FLOVE IT. You are MAGIC, ceci, MAGIC!

Calls his mom as promised; gives Emmett a bad time; connives with Edward; and stands up for himself ... he's the perfect man, isn't he! I'm really looking forward to his first impression of Alice ...
