OMG. You need to update this like now. You swept me away in this story. It's so believable. I can't wait until you write about the rest of the Cullens joining and I'm very curious with it being in Carlisle's POV what he will first think of Bella when you reach that point. I just want to say this is one of the best fanfics I've read. Keep up the amazing work and update soon!

Before I continue, I just wanted to say that this is very descriptive. Great job and I'm really excited that you decided to take the time to write Carlisle's story. :)

Great story so far. You seem to be nailing Carlisle's character, along with Edward's so far. I liked the first chapter a lot when you were describing the chase Carlisle had gone on. I think you did a great job describing old London, and what it was like in the scenery. You could always add a little bit more of his struggles though. It seemed a little rushed at how one minute he wanted to kill all the humans, he hunts a few animals, and then his blood lust is over. Maybe go a little slower at that part describing what he went through. Also, could you add a little of how and why he decided to become a doctor? It seemed like all of a sudden the detail of that's what he wanted to be popped up. In those times, people would kind of 'be assigned' to take over the job of their parents, so he should have become a pastor. Where'd he get the sudden want to be a physician? The part with the Volturi was great. I'm always looking at who's going to get their personalities right or completely destroy them. Good news, yours were wonderful. You gave a clear picture of who they really were and what Carlisle thought of them. Again, if you could go into a little more deatil of his time with them I'd appreciate it. But great work changing the languages. It really annoys me when everyone assumes that every place he went to the world spoke English, or he somehow naturally was able to speak a language without ever learning it. You incorporated his faith really well when he was talking with Aro. I liked the prase you used in "God's will is a mystery, but everything happens for a reason." Defenitely Carlisle. Amazing job describing the Volturi's reaction to him and his newly found lifestyle. Once again, could you slow down at the New World part? I'd really like to see more of his reaction of when he first came to America, and how he thought it was different from London if he did at all. Just a quick note; in chapter 6, Edward's mother's name is written Elizabeth, not Elisabeth. The way you described their time at the hospital was wonderful. You did good describing Carlisle's feelings as Edward was changing in his regret and guilt of doing this to Edward, but also still wanting a companion. In the part where Edward wakes up, you may have wanted to make him more confused. He seemed to be taking the fact that he was a vampire and could read minds in too great a stride, like at the part where you wrote "Edward looked puzzled for a moment, and then his expression relaxed. “I guess I am reading your thoughts.". I think he would have been a little bit more surprised than that. But his personality seemed to shine through when he was getting to know Carlisle. The struggles he faced in being a newborn was wonderful worded. And finally dear, dear Esme. Great job giving us a taste of Carlisle's feelings for her and in turn her thoughts during her transformation. Loved it! Defenitely continue-you've got a talent for writing. Great spelling and grammar, too, which I thank you for. Beautiful words, and keep up the good work!

Great story! )
I haven't found much from Carlisle's point of view out there, so this is cool.
I can't wait for the next chapter!
