It's the Epilogue.
Don't be mad, it's not fair. This story's been over for a while & I've just refused to admit it. So I wrote the epilogue. Be happy. I'll probably post random outtakes so let me know if there's a specific scene, before, during, or after NBT that you wanna see. If I wanna see it too, I might do it. Woo-hoo! Thank you guys so much for all of the laughs you gave me, the support you gave me, and for making me focus on the crap that falls out of my mouth(hands) sometimes.
You all have been awesome.
Especially twilam, who is like my all-star.
Who for some unknown flippin reason been around since the beginning of the story, reading and reviewing, making me smile and laugh, etc. I don't get why you guys stuck with this cracktacular story. I enjoyed it, sure, a lot actually, but I didn't quite expect anyone else to. So, thanks.
He bought me an island. Well, technically, Jacob and Edward (as a team??!?) bought Nico and I an island. Well, obtained us an island. We're not the type to question how exactly they did that. A wonderful little place to glitter all day and raise our little vampire babies. Of course, it was suggested that we include all the other little vampire families so there wasn't any accidental massacres.
We agreed. Why not? We aren't that self-centered. Besides, our babies need baby friends to play with. We also both decided that they shouldn't be forced to hide while growing up. I mean, there'll be plenty of time for that later. It appears they're going to have a very short 'growing up' time frame - they should be able to make the most of it. Granted, Nico and I are well over a century and haven't managed to grow up much at all. Well, hadn't.
For neither of us being exceptionally ready for vamparenthood, we quickly found out that the little squirts are a lot of fun. Once we got out of our post-pregnancy mental states and returned to our typical selves, anyway.
Nico's kids were awesome to the extreme. Jalie was our little ballerina. Yes, as in, our kids actually ended up being different from each other's. (Surprised us too.) She loved to dance all over the castle while we were still there. She even danced through walls occasionally - we're assuming she takes more after mom than dad. She has a temper that matches ours, as well. Of course, her temper couldn't even compare to Will's. Not by a mile. He can throw a fit like no child you have ever seen. He even growled at Edward for quite a bit, but we managed to get him to quit - once we got Jake to stop. His main trait seems to be how protective he is. He is very, very possessive of Jalie. He had a hard time controlling his temper around visitors in the castle - he thought of them as intruders, basically, and wasn't comfortable allowing them around his sister.
Will and Jace have got a great headstart on their bromance, although Jace seems to balance Will out. He's much calmer and he just seems to enjoy... everything. It's his personality. He's protective of Lizzie to an extent, but we're all very much aware that she'd be the first one to throw a punch. She's a fighter. He's a peacemaker.
We're wondering if we got Alice and Jasper's kids by mistake.
Except it doesn't look like Alice and Jazz are having any kids. They don't really want them. According to Alice, they're perfectly content to be the spoiling aunt and uncle. Jasper, as we all know, is bound to agree with Alice.
So, shockingly enough, it looks like Em's theory is playing out. Which is probably why Rose had sextuplets. Turns out, those two were born to be parents. Seeing them with their babies is beyond amazing. Emlie, Emmett Jr, and Izzie are the spitting image of Emmett. Cute, curly, brown hair and mesmerizing dimples. If you ever get the chance to meet them, you just might die when you have to walk away. Now, Kaylie, Kasey, and Karen are mini-Rosalie but improved. No lie. Emmett is going to beating off the little vamp-spawn left and right in just a few short years.
Carlisle and Esme had just one, but they justified it with the fact that they already have about 10. Shelly is the shy one. She's sweet as can be, but sometimes I worry about how well she's going to fair around the insanity that is her cousins.
Marcus and Kaliea got married and did the whole bite and suck and stop procedure. Nobody dared to say shit about the rules, just like we told him they wouldn't. The End for them though, no babies as of yet. The general group theory is that they won't, because of Nico and I, and the involvement of us as his daughters in the entire theory. Or some bullshit like that, if you want to know more, ask Jazz.
Nico and Jake were married at the same time as Edward and I. Same ceremony. It was sweet and far from simple. Overdramatic to say the least. Almost every vampire in existence attended and it was a multi-day affair. That's just life, Volturi style.
Esme and Rose have talked about a school of sorts. Alice has talked about designing said school. Carlisle has talked about a medical center on the island for birthing and such and is working to find a way to ensure Jake gets to stay around a while. Edward and Emmett and Jazz have talked about inventing beer for vampires. Jake has laughed at their ideas while drinking his beer. That's just life, Cullen style.
As for the last three of the pack, they're still there. Naked, usually. Leah, bossy bitch that she is, has taken over Jake's position. Temporarily/Permanently. Eventually, Will should be responsible for that. But, with LaPush being basically under Volturi protection lately, along with Forks, it's more a superficial thing anymore.
My guard is all off doing their separate things. I'm still paying them, of course. They rotate one at a time through Forks. Well, that's the plan. Every school year a new freaky pale senior will start. No plans on what we'll do once the rotation's out.
Caius is still a jerk. But he's usually nice to the babies.
Aro hasn't tried to recruit any of them as of yet, but we're pretty certain he's installed surveillance on the island. That's just Aro.
As for Nico and I, we're not planning to invent, open, build, or anything of the sorts right now. We're enjoying being moms. We spend most of our time out in the woods, playing with the kids, or out on the beach. We're lucky enough to have our kids, each other, our husbands, our families, and this island. We really couldn't ask for more.
