I loved this story, and I could really see it happening this way. My only regret was that it didn't go any farther! I would have loved to see that!

Awww :( Does this mean that they wouldnt create rose or the other ones?

I really liked this story and how E&C went over their beliefs and the turmoil Edward felt. I also thought your ending was very good in that they realized their feelings for eachother. I love E&C together! )

I think I started to read this earlier, but I did 't finish. Edward and Carlisle aren't really a pairing I go out of my way to read, but this was interesting. I loved the angst.

I love the emo Edward has over the fact he didn't get given a choice to become a vampire. This is something I felt was hinted at in canon, but I've never seen it explored in fic before. Very nice, love :)

You handle canon Edward and Carlisle so beautifully here. I love the little twist of Carlisle letting Esmeralda die, and that being the thing that sets Edward off into his rebellion. I can imagine this rebellion being much shorter (perhaps only this one incident) than canon and then Edward coming to grips with himself much more quickly since he wouldn't be "alone". I would love to see another chapter or two of this, just to see how these two carry on with each other - would Carlisle have changed Rosalie if Edward didn't need a mate? Would Jasper and Alice have found them decades later if there wasn't a whole coven? I feel you've created such an amazing AU world full of possibilities here! All of that said, I think this story functions amazingly well as a one-shot. Just lovely. Thank you!

I love, so very much, that he refers to Edward as his fledgling.

Ah, Tuesday, another well-written, UNGHHHH story from you.I loved the plot line- interesting concept of "what if". I do hope this isn't a one-shot and that you intend to continue with at least a couple more lemony chapters because you are the queen of slash in my book and vampire slash is so intriguing as there are so many physical issues/differences from human slash. I mean they are virtually unbreakable until they break... I am excited to read more. I just get thrilled when I see an update from you and you haven't EVER disappointed! Keep it up sweetie- MWAH!

As I've told you in the past, I hardly ever read slash, but you go beyond the physical into very emotional and spiritual realms. We see the characters' frailties, as well as their tenderness and how they discover strength. So, I think this is a very deep and moving story, and entirely plausible (although a world without an Esme is sad for me). I like the doctrinal debate the men have. They don't really resolve it, but they find a way to endure and one assumes they'll try to rise above their bloodthirsty natures. I really enjoyed it. Glad you wrote it.

This is beautifully written and thoughtful. One of the things that always bothered me about Twilight is that Edward and Carlisle, especially, are supposed to be highly intelligent and learned men, and yet they discuss troubling ethical and existential questions with no depth at all. Yeah, I know, it's Twilight. And of course we're supposed to imagine they've come through something like this (minus the pairing), but we never get to read an exchange that does justice to the struggle or debate that led to their divergent views on the soul of a vampire. This is a beautiful rendering of how it might have gone. You set a vivid scene from the beginning - I love the use of smell and the changes in the air, and Edward's music. You pay attention to all the right details. And then at the very end it turns almost romantic in a way that makes sense even amid such a horrific scene. I don't know that I would have recognized this story as yours based on the others of your stories I've read, but it has a philosopher's stamp on it. As always, thank you!

This was lovely. I enjoyed it the first time and loved re-reading. I find "canon" E/C problematic. But you've done it beautifully. Emotional and real. Thanks for sharing.
