Love this - I never thought about these things before - thank you for writing, and opening my eyes a little.

As Jasper spent the lest amount of time with Bella he really has no idea of her experiences. They had maybe 2 conversations over the entire series. It's pretty presumptuous of him to think he knows nothing of her and her experiences.

My fav line...
'...I only care about that if I'm buying rice. In China. Otherwise, I'm more concerned about the price of rice in Forks - and not much then. I've never eaten rice in my life that I can recall, and it's a little late now.'
It's the 'Don't bother me unless it has to do with me' attitude and the humor about it been a little late to be thinking about buying and eating rice.
As to being a mind reader vs. empathic? I believe I would want to be like Jasper, empathic. I honestly know how someone feels would be a helpful tool in being able to help others.**You can't trust what someone is thinking.**

I enjoy Jasper's "musings" and thoughts on things.
I think he's right, of course.
And you did a good job with it.

It's real. Love isn't flowery words and good looks. Love hurts, but in the end so worth it.

Food for thought.
That was such a fresh and interesting way to look upon the relationship of Bella and Edward and came from the perfect person. When I first started reading I though it would be Rosalie's thoughts, an insight as to why she doesn't want Bella to change. I was quickly cured of that notion. I find myself agreeing wholeheartedly as it makes perfect sense. These vampires were designed to make people want them, which is, of course, why Bella is worshipping Edward but believes herself to be in love. Which, in a way, she is. I believe you need to love in order to worship but it is not an equal love. Edward is plainly fascinated with not being able to hear her thoughts. Something which even Twilight agreed upon. Not hearing her thoughts was in part responsible for not eating her when he smelt her. The other parts being the reasons given in the book - his family, killing the class, Charlie would be left alone, etc.
I especially liked where Jasper would encourage Bella to still be herself after the wedding to help their love grow into an equal love, a partnership with two distinct beings joined together. I can see him doing that in the books.
I am now feeling quite jealous of you that you were able to come to such a conclusion and articulate it so well. I guess all that is left to say is - Well done! It was a delight to read and I shall look for more of your work in the future.

I was linked here by a post in the lj comm twispitefic. Just wanted to say that I really admire the way you got into Jasper's head.

What a wonderful insight into Jasper's thoughts. I really enjoyed his take on things. I have so much respect for you and commend you on touching on some of the topics you did. Not too many authors would be willing to speak on "color" barriers and you did it expertly. This was truly a wonderfully well written one-shot.

Very well written. I love this side of Jasper. There is no bullshit. Just him being real. It's rereshing.

Wonderful little thing. :-) Jasper really came to life here, and you made me like him. Not a small feat since I hate everything there is about Twilight usually. But this? This was good. VERY good. Well done. :-)

I was not sure what to expect when I clicked on this story, but I certainly did not expect what was inside. Your view and insight into the characters is beautiful, and is also a new perspective for me. I never looked at it from this side.
However, what you say through Jaspers thoughts rings true.
I truly loved your Jasper, from his insight into himself, to how he views people and things.
Tahnk you for sharing this :)
