It was fun to read all that again. You kind of miss all of it in the dvd, it's too condensed.

This wasn't a bit happier a chapter from Carlisle's point of view than it was from Edward's in IiG! Pretty sad Christmas all around.

Absolutely a necessary outtake. Thank you for sharing it

I love, love, love getting EPOV for this conversation!

It all boils down to one thing. Edward still thinks he knows what's best for everyone. That he has the right answers. That what he wants is what should happen. He never even gives a thought to what others feel about his decisions. How it affects them. That he is rejecting them. That they couldn't possibly know what they really want.

Carlisle was trying to be a father. He loves his son and only wants to help him find himself. Edward just doesn't believe he needs help with anything.

I love seeing Edward be just as obtuse as Bella was in New Moon. Truly terrific.

"The phone clicked as he closed it, but I kept mine at my ear, as though somehow more of his voice would be transmitted even without him on the other line."
That was a truly beautiful moment.

I love this! I love how you are showing how much Carlisle loves Edward. I also love how strong you are making Esme and How she is Carlisle's support. Most stories have it the other way and Esme much much more weepy and it felt not wrong but not quite right. She went thro so much that she had to be strong to survive that. And with Carlisle is his first comphanion, best friend and first son, of course he is going to be more emotionally about Edward being far away during a period of such pain. You are doing a very good job.

Carlisle was thinking as he should have been. Like a father and a friend. He was so heartbroken when Edward refused to come home it made him cry. And that made me cry. I love Carlisle.

"I—" am dirt, my mind went on. I am someone who should never have been inflicted on you. No, that wouldn't do. She wouldn't believe me, anyway. I took a deep breath. "I owe you an apology."
I love the way you fill in the gaps with his thoughts! I laughed out loud at that one!
Bad, my mind answered for me. The odds are bad. They always had been. "The odds," I muttered.
(Laughing again at Edward SadHeart.)
She might simply have shoved a broadsword through my middle. For a moment the image I had seen in the middle of the piazza flooded my memory—Bella's body, broken, bleeding, fading away as I tried to touch it. The air was suddenly thinner. The very idea of her dead, now that I had truly confronted the possibility—I shuddered. But her words brought back another memory as well—six months and one week ago, when that awful expression had crossed her face in the woods behind the little white house where we both now lay. "I don't want you to come with me….You're not good for me….It will be as if I'd never existed." The words clawed at me now, threatening to rip me apart from the inside as they had in Ithaca, in San Francisco, in New Orleans, in Brazil. She had believed me then, and she still believed the lie now.
"But what about when I get so old that people think I'm your mother? Your grandmother?" The tears flowed again, trickling down her jawbone and leaving splotches on the comforter. I leaned forward and brushed my lips to them—like every other part of her, they were exquisite. How was it possible for her to think I would ever find her anything less than unbearably desirable, no matter how far we might be spread in physical age?
Aw, the very best part of love. Thank you!

He might as well have just slapped me across the face. I had to take a deep breath before I could manage to remind myself that this was Edward I was talking to. He was the master at living alone. He could convince himself that he was without company even when he had someone's arms around him. With four months completely on his own, he would undoubtedly have managed to convince himself yet again that no one else cared for him. I shook my head sadly.
Carlisle's assessment of Edward: mind-boggling. Thank you.
