Emmet and Jasper in: Food Shopping for Bella
Jasper: Ok Emmett, we're here, we have a goal, did you ask Bella what she needed?
Emmett: Was I... supposed to?
Jasper: Emmett, that was your one s i n g l e job, asking the human what she needed to eat
Emmett: Ok so... like meat, right? I used to eat that shit a ton as a human. They dont sell deer, thats stupid, guess we'll go with chicken.
Jasper: Em, she doesnt need 8 packs of chicken.
Emmett: Bro have you seen chickens, theyre so small, I could put an entire chicken in my mouth. Y'know what, I've seen a chicken near home. When we get home im showing you that I can put an entire chicken in my mouth-
Jasper: Emmett please god stop, I don't doubt you can fit a chicken in your mouth, people are staring.
Jasper: Ok, Edward said Bella likes salad. Do you know anything about salad.
Emmett: Do I LOOK like I have ever eaten a salad Jaz.
Jasper: Yeah fair honestly I dont even know why I asked.
Emmett: Ok, we have a bunch of leaves, we have... vegetables of some description. What else did Eddie say she liked?
Jasper: Something about mushrooms, like a pasta, he said they had it in a resteraunt in Port Angeles. Lets go to the pasta section then.
Emmett: I am not entirely positive what a pasta is but when I find out, hooooo boy.
Jasper: Ok so I'm not seeing any mushroom flavoured pasta, Em what do we do thats like... the only thing I can think of that it could be.
Emmett: *looking at a box with a triumphant look* Well, queue the hoooo boy because Jaz, I have found what we have been searching for.
Jasper: Wait, you did? What is it?
Emmett: *holding up box for Jasper to see* It says right here "mushroom shaped pasta" thats like, the same thing right?
Jasper: You are an absolute genuis.
Emmett: OK, chicken?
Emmett: Mushroom shapes?
Emmett: Thats all I can think of, humans just need water and sun then they'll get big and strong, right?
Jasper: Em, thats a plant, youre thinking of photosynthesis. Humans need food and sleep and warmth and happiness and stuff.
Emmett: Ok, I vote that I just improvise a bit and see what happens. Whats the biggest potential issue?
Jasper: Fair honestly, go wild I'll meet you at the register.
Emmett: Cullens, we have been hunting and we have RETURNED
Jasper: We did great, obviously
Alice, to Edward: Spoiler Alert; they didn't do great
Emmett: Hush Alice, let me show our bounty. Mortal, come to us.
Bella: *wearily walking over* uh.. sure
Alice, mouthing to Bella: Be nice, they did their best.
Jasper: Firstly, we have, drumroll please... chicken.
Jasper: And chicken
Jasper: And chicken
Jasper: And chicken, and some more chicken, and finally, a bit more chicken.
Bella: Ok, awesome, thanks.
Emmett: Please Bella, save your praise for when we're finished.
Bella: Y'know what, sure Emmett, please show me what else you have there, I would personally love to see it.
Emmet: Of course you would. Next up we have... salad!
Bella: Em, that just lea-
Emmett: Bella please, I know youre insanely greatful but as I said, save the praise for once we're finished. I will only accept drumrolling at appropriate intervals. Jasper, next item please.
Jasper: We have mushroom pasta
Edward: Oh, thats actually a good one. Wait, Jasper, what is this?
Jasper: Its mushroom pasta..? Duh
Edward: Did you hear me talking about the thing from Port Angeles?
Jasper: Mhm, we thought we'd suprise her with her favourite.
Edward: Jasper, it's called mushroom ravioli, and she's only ever eaten it once, and I'm like 90% sure it was sub-par at best. Also, this is just mushroom SHAPED, it doesnt have any mushroom in it what-so-ever. I don't even thi-
Alice, smacking edward over the head: Jasper its great, lets just move on to the next thing.
Emmett: Ok, speedround, you ready?
Bella: Absolutely not
Emmett: Cool, 1. Frozen corn 2. thin potatoes in a very large bag 3. An entire bag of B+ blood, no you may not ask where I found it 4. Tiny edible pillow things. 5. Finally... Tampons, idk it felt like a good idea.
Bella: Honestly thank you
Emmett: Also I need to show you something with a chicken I found, wanna see
hc’s for how the cullens would react to walking in on you changing? lmao i feel like every fandom does this so it’s only right to request it😂
oh my god i am so sorry this took forever wtf i lost this draft and recently found it again but yeah omg im sorry anon!
Carlisle walking in on you changing would've made him blush in embarrassment if he were human. He's such a gentleman and even if you're far into the relationship, he won't purposely do anything like that - invading your privacy is never on his mind.
He will immediately stop and cover his eyes, chuckling nervously and apologizing for not thinking to knock first. Carlisle would quickly leave the room unless you tell him it's okay
Even if you said it's fine he will ask you for more reassurance and apologize again. Carlisle will kiss your cheek and pull you into a hug once you're dressed and ask if you'd like to do something fun, to make up for it.
Once he's comfortable with you and knows how to handle your body, you can expect him to touch you and mumble sweet nothings into your ear, holding you close and possibly making love to you if nothing else is planned.
This wonderful woman will apologize and give you privacy unless you reassure her that's it's fine. If that happens then she will offer to help you - like if you have a zipper on the back of your clothing or to put a necklace on for you.
She is very sweet and accepting. Esme is definitely the type to remind you how lovely you look! Not necessarily in a sexual way, she isn't going to make you feel more vulnerable.
Esme is the one you can be completely comfortable with - nude and dressed. She is respectful and keeps her eyes away from your body unless you initiate something.
She adores you so don't feel nervous about it or anything, you're loved and accepted!
It’s very rare for this to happen since he’s honestly a gentleman. But on the rare occasions it’s always an accident. Sometimes he is just missing you, excited to show you something, etc.
Jasper will apologize and leave the room, waiting for you to be done or for you to invite him in. It doesn’t matter how long he’s been with you- the respect he has for his mate is very high.
Since he can feel emotions you can’t hide being insecure so don’t even try hiding it with a fake smile or a white lie. He knows and wants to lighten your mood but without using his gift. He only uses it if you say it’s okay.
Compliments can be very sappy or full on teasing, it’s a surprise most of the time. Either way, he adores his mate 100%.
She gasps but not because she walked in on you. The gasp can mean two things. One- your style is perfect and she loves it or she feels so offended and wants to fix it lol
Very sweet and reassuring! Kisses on your cheek and side hugging you while looking into the mirror is a must in her book.
Doesn’t make it awkward at all. Having any kind of relationship with Alice is open and honest.
This little shit feeds off your shyness when he walks in so casually (or loudly.. he can be chaotic) and teases you right away, flirting with you as if he’s still trying to win you over. It’s sweet tbh
If you get insecure he is quick to rant about what he loves about your body and is very affectionate.
Doesn’t care if the style you have is weird or normal, he thinks you look hot in anything.. and nothing of course.
Soft smiles and rubbing your arm/back, maybe even kissing your cheek if she’s in the mood to be all soft.
Calls you beautiful/handsome/etc.
Sometimes rolls her eyes if you try covering up. It’s just her way of showing she doesn’t care what you look like underneath your clothes.
Respects your boundaries though so don’t worry.
If you aren’t married to him yet then he will be a mess for a while lol feel free to tease him about it too.
Thinks you look perfect no matter what.
If he is able to hear your thoughts then don’t be shocked if he gets serious all of the sudden- you feeling insecure can pull him down as well, he matches your energy all the time but he still pulls you back up one way or another.
Sweet and genuine compliments.
To say she’s awkward about it is an understatement.
She thinks you look great and even attempts telling you that but her tone makes the situation feel tense and weird, don’t think too much about it- she does mean well of course.
Bella (if human) blushes and Vamp Bella is more bold- staring at you fondly before leaving the room unless you say it’s okay for her to stay.
Even then she asks if you’re sure like five times lol
BELLA 🗣 is a NECROPHILIAC. SHE had INTERCOURSE with EDWARD right?? So he's undead- so he is NOTHING. NOTHING!!!!!??! but a BODY. Rubbing against cold. hard. rubber.
The Cullens don’t value human life, or: Carlisle, honey, I’m so sorry
So, Carlisle is in a miserable situation.
He was forcibly turned into a vampire under traumatic circumstances, and became a cannibalistic demon. Against all odds he discovered that he didn’t actually have to kill people: however, he was still lonely. Fast forwards a few lonely years, he found a BFF and homoerotic academic in Aro, and spent decades trying to persuade him to his diet. Failed. Decided to travel the world in search of likeminded - failed.
There’s no one.
Fast forwards to 1918, Carlisle has spent centuries trying to get someone, anyone, to understand this seemingly simple concept. Don’t eat people, please, it’s literally the only thing Carlisle asks. And he’s still asking too much.
We know how history then unfolded itself - Carlisle was going to let the Masens die, as countless patients had before, and then Elizabeth Masen said “nu uh, not my son he won’t!”, and that was the kick in the butt Carlisle needed to create his own companion. Converting others had failed, but maybe a brand new vampire who has never known anything different and who looks to Carlisle for guidance will follow the diet.
And it works. Edward follows Carlisle’s diet. A few years later Carlisle repeats the experiment, now he’s in a coven of three vampires who are actually doing the diet. What a world. I’m sure he was walking around in a daze for a solid portion of that time.
The coven grows, soon Carlisle has a whole squad of vegetarians, and even a cousin squad. (Although since the Denali sister went for the diet because they wanted to have sex with the same men multiple times, I can only picture Carlisle’s delight upon finding them quickly turning into a thousand yard stare.)
Anyway, Carlisle has what he always wanted, let there be happiness galore.
Unfortunately, none of the Cullens actually care about human life.
Off the top of my head:
Edward left Carlisle for years. This by itself is a dealbreaker, he had all the love and support he could ever ask for, and turned his back on it because he’d rather kill people. Killing rapists wasn’t even his first instinct, at first he killed homeless junkies, since no one would miss them. He only turned to rapists because junkies taste awful. He turned back not because he learned the error of his ways, but because life wasn’t fulfilling. He has learned nothing: when we meet him in 2005, he would have eaten Bella and the Biology class if it weren’t for Carlisle, contemplates killing all the Quileutes, and in Volterra he would have gone on a massacre, again if it wasn’t for Carlisle. This guy doesn’t care about human life, and he never becomes a better person. He abstains from human blood for Carlisle, to feel like less of a monster, and because it plays into his superiority complex.
Esme makes it very clear she’s fine with Bella’s untimely death. She’d let Bella die to satisfy Edward’s thirst, or to keep him in Forks. Her vote for Bella to live has nothing to do with Bella, and she later gives Edward implicit approval to eat her if he wants. It’s additionally damning that Edward isn’t at all surprised by her behavior. She does the diet for her family.
Rosalie used not wanting to move to a new place and start over as an argument in favor of killing Bella. She later places her bet that Bella will be eaten in the meadow. She adheres to the diet better than anyone in the family, but she doesn’t actually care for the individual human life, not even when it’s an innocent girl. Her main reason for following the diet is that she wants to be as close to being human as possible, and maneating demon is about as far from human as you can get.
Emmet’s response to Edward having a singer is “Treat yourself, bro!” and when Bella’s becoming a vampire, he makes a bet about how many people she’ll kill. He could not care less. He follows the diet for Rosalie’s sake.
Alice lives the way she does because her visions told her that she should live with the Cullens. She cares about Bella because Bella is her barbie, and she treats her like an accessory rather than a person. When push comes to shove she brings Bella to Volterra, knowing what the Volturi do to humans who know the secret. She never appears to care about humans for the sake of humans, at one point we see her try to help Jasper control his thirst: “It helps if you think of them as people!”
Jasper’s gift is essentially a shock collar that made a human diet unsustainable for him.
Bella chooses vampirism, knowing that there’s a chance she’ll kill people. When told of Jasper and Emmet’s newborn Bella body count bet, she is not at all concerned. And the thirst is never a problem for her, she doesn’t have to struggle to stay on the diet. She eats animals because she’s a Cullen, Cullens eat animals. Duh.
(I know this is a bit reductive, I do have far more to say on each of these, but I’m trying to be a succinct person)
They’re not doing the human diet for altruistic reasons.
This is the thing that makes Carlisle a tragic character to me.
Loneliness is his whole thing, and all he ever wanted in a companion someone who shared his ideals, who would value human life as he does. What he ends up with is the Cullens, who all believe they’re amazing people for not eating people and morally superior (they won’t say it aloud, but- well they’ll absolutely say it aloud. And they do.) to other vampires, but they don’t actually care at all.
We see it in Rosalie, Emmet, and Jasper deciding to kill Bella in Midnight Sun, we see it in- well, I just wrote a bunch of examples above. We see it again and again, these people care about human life up until the second it’s inconvenient for them to do so.
And all Carlisle can do is live in intense double think denial where his family is filled with wonderful people who care about humans so much, but he also has to make them go to their victim’s funerals in a desperate, and very telling, bid to make them understand that humans are people.
The whole point of the Cullens is that after centuries of loneliness Carlisle finally has a family of vampires who share his ideals, but when they don’t actually care-
Carlisle, honey, I’m so sorry.
Drinks Anyone? 🥂
Alice Cullen x Reader
Warnings: alchohol consumption
Prompts: "Hey, pretty one, wanna get to know each other a bit more?" "We've been dating for two years, are you really that drunk?"
(e/c) -> eye color
Like Alice had planned for Bella and Edward's wedding, the place was packed with friends (humans) from school and even extended family, the Denali coven, came to celebrate coming from their home in Alaska.
Sadly, through the chaos after Edward and Bella left for their honeymoon Alice lost you in the fray of people. She does remember you saying that you were going to get a drink.
It was at the open bar she found you surrounded by her brother's, Emmett and Jasper, both of which will eventually get it when she realizes the state you're in.
Alice pauses when she overhears you speaking. She wasn't trying to overhear what you were saying by any means, it's just that you were talking pretty loudly in the state you were currently in at the moment.
"I only saw her for a split second then she was gone. I saw my soulmate, I've got to go find 'er." You manage to finish telling your tall tale, throwing back another cup of champagne before placing the cup back down.
You go to stand up intent to pat your friend's shoulder's in appreciation for listening and 'drinking' with you.
More like, since they can't drink they just kept giving you their's. Emmett just for fun. Jasper started to get curious how he would feel as an empath around someone who was inebriated, if he would feel the effects just the same or not at all. The answer was yes, he just had to focus on you.
Your patting on their shoulder's turn a bit frantic when you make eye contact with Alice only to quickly look away not really whispering to the guys, "Hey! There, look, there she is! Told ya I saw her...first...Dibs!"
By that time Alice understood what happened, already having a vision of the morning after when you're hungover, mumbling out your responses with the blankets covering your entire form in bed.
You suddenly turn from the guy's in a vain attempt to fix yourself of any stray hairs, or unkempt clothes.
"Hey, pretty one, wanna get to know each other a bit more?" You ask confidently, liquid courage in your veins, nothing can stop you. Not even the simple fact that you currently forgot that she is already dating you.
Alice would've blushed if it were possible, but, she settled for being exasperated having never seen a human, especially, one that she treasures so dearly, so drunk to forget things.
"We've been dating for two years, are you really that drunk?" Alice asks, placing a steadying hand on your frame to steady your balance when you wanted to stand closer to her only to stumble a bit, your feet not working like you wanted them too.
Alice feels her heart soar and fill with wonder when you look at her like it's the first time, which, in way it was for you.
Your (e/c) filling with amazement that this woman claims that she's already dating you. This night just can't get any better, your mind blown.
"Really?! That's awesome!" You cheer out, gaining some looks from the other guests. Not that you cared about them in anyway, your attention solely focused on the one thing in front of you.
Alice's laugh tinkers out of her mouth in a musical harmony that had you frozen, being around you no matter the state you are in, she can't help falling in love like it was the first time.
As someone who literally just finished Twilight, Breaking Dawn Pt. 2, let me crystallize my reactions during the scene where everyone ‘dies’ in Alice’s vision. (I definitely didn’t think it was real..)
Alrighty here we go… wait they didn’t run at each other in the book…
OMG CARLISLE WHAT THE FU-
Now Esme is sad no. Run at the Volturi. Slay them all where they stand.
Wait wait wait no Jasper what no no NOOOOOO
Yeah rip those Volturi heads off.
Aw Seth saved someone! 🥰🥳 if anything ever happened to him I’d kill everyone in this room and then myself.
Hold on a minute. He did not consent to that- NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 😭😭😭 BURN IN HELL YOU VOLTURI BITCH
LEAH KILL THEM ALL
NO LEAH DONT DIE ON ME NOW HOLY SHIT ESME YOURE A VAMPIRE JUMP FOR GODS SAKE
I’d like to watch Aro die again but whatevs. OH THANK GOD ITS NOT REAL.
Twilight au where Rosalie hunts down rapists for sport. Alice offers to help her and she widens her range to prospective rapists too. Local police force ran by chief swan is doing very little to catch her.
twilight saga 🍂
They really said Carlisle Cullen is friends with all manner of people of color across the world, but not at home where he lives, huh
Ik we have the baseball scene but why didn’t we get more fun vampire moments? They have nothing better to do so literally why not. Why can’t we have emmet chuck edward as hard as he can just to see how strong he is? Where’s Edward gaslighting and mansplaining every thought someone has just to mess with them?? Where is the fun???????
how they'd react to you (their mate) getting hurt/killed in the breaking dawn battle
Characters included: Carlisle, Esme, Emmett, Rosalie, Alice, Jasper, Edward, Bella, Seth, Embry, Sam, Leah, Jacob.
~ Carlisle always had confidence in your ability to fight but that doesn't mean he wasn't protective. He did his absolute best to watch over you, staying close enough just in case anyone got the upper hand over you. Unfortunately, there came a moment where he was pinned and surrounded by multiple enemies, his fear of losing you overshadowed his fear of being ripped apart. For a few seconds that felt like minutes, he watched you struggle and cry out, needing help. He used all the strength he had and managed to break through some of them. Before he could get to you, a large black wolf, known as Sam, saved you without hesitation. Carlisle never felt so relieved in his life before, knowing you're safe and able to fight again soothed his nerves.
(And after the fight is over, he is reminding you of how proud he is, he's amazed at your dedication and ability to protect those you love and yourself. Carlisle will apologize for not being able to help you sooner)
~ Esme is naturally protective of you even though you're more than capable of taking care of yourself. Throughout the battle, you seemed to have yourself steady and focused. This allowed her to help the others but she'd quickly regret that decision when she can hear your screams of distress. She turns to search for you, her eyes land on your weakened form and she immediately runs to you, her heart breaking at the thought of losing you. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to save you like she wanted.
(Esme will forever blame herself, missing her second half, her wonderful and brave mate. She will always remember you and how you fearlessly fought in the battle)
~ Emmett always had faith in your powers, they're strong and lethal but at the same time, you lose energy and physical strength the more you use them. He was hesitant to let you step foot on the battle field but you were adamant on helping his family, they were yours too. Half of the fight went alright to say the least, you and Emmett separated to cover more ground. Bella helped you with her shielding power but she got knocked down, giving Alec the chance to pounce on you, determined to end your life. Emmett didn't take long to charge after him, rage filling his body and growling as he ripped Alec apart with ease. Emmett gave you a look of worry but you brushed it off and stayed by his side, knowing he'd feel better that way.
(Emmett will never allow you to fight again. He almost lost you and he won't risk that again. You obey and understand)
~ Rose hated knowing you'd be fighting, she didn't want you in danger. Of course she believes in your power to stay "alive" but deep down, she is terrified the entire time. Rosalie never let's you out of her sight, she is determined to keep you safe even if she loses her "life" saving yours. Fortunately, she only had to help you once when the ground split, almost sending you down into the pit of heat. She was quick to push them over, pulling you up.
(Rosalie will be angry towards you for a while until she opens up and admits she was just scared. She loves you so damn much and losing you would've killed her inside)
~ Alice thankfully saw this coming, the scene of you suffering from Jane's power. Alice made sure to distract Jane and lead the blonde into a different direction, saving you selflessly. Alice happily let Sam end Jane's immortal life for threatening yours. And despite all the horrible chaos surrounding both of you, she made the effort to kiss your cheek before running off to finish this battle.
(Alice will praise you when it's over, saying how lucky she is to have you still here with her. You can feel all the love she has for you, Alice is one of a kind and being her mate is perfect. The battle only made the connection stronger)
~ Jasper trained you and knew you'd be more than capable of defending yourself, three vampires at most. The limit was learned with the newborn fight so Jasper glued himself to your side the entire time, his dead heart pounding with anxiety. At first he refused to let you fight but numbers were needed and you weren't going to let your family do this alone. Jasper held onto faith, thinking everything was going to end with no losses. Unfortunately, near the very end, you were distanced from Jasper. He was snatched away from you with extreme force, he growled and shouted in distress when he saw Jane walking towards you. You were too distracted by ripping yet another vampire head off to catch her presence. When you looked up, you snarled and braced yourself for an attack, forgetting about her specific ability. Before you could pounce on her, she had you whimpering from a pain you've never felt before. It didn't stop and you felt suffocated, moving backwards and shaking, your whimpers only getting louder. Jasper tried pushing past the group that held him hostage, his eyes black and chest aching. Jasper saw it happen, so quick yet in slow motion. Jane sent you into the arms of another Volturi member, they bit into you and broke your neck within seconds. Jasper couldn't do anything but watch his mate suffer a horrific death, the light in your eyes fading after you let out your last breath.
(Jasper forever lives in a pit of grief and guilt, blaming himself. He isn't the same and refuses to speak to anyone, even his family. Jasper lost faith in god long ago but for some reason, he secretly hopes that he will be able to see you again and that you're watching over him)
~ Edward is known to shelter you from everyone and everything, much to your disappointment. You're still in your newborn phase, the strength you have is almost impossible to defeat. With enough convincing, Edward let you fight. And to his surprise, you did really fucking good. You barely got hit or scratched, your speed giving you more leverage. The only time you got hurt was when Aro had thrown you into mid-air, your attempt at tackling him down didn't go as planned. Edward watched with a pained expression, eyes wide and mouth open. He heard a loud groan from you, the impact you had with one of the wolves on accident being the reason. It didn't seriously injure you but Edward still scolded himself for letting this happen. Even though the pack was helping his family, Edward glared at the specific wolf that collided with you. After that, Edward forced you to stay next to him no matter what.
(Edward can't cope with the possibility of losing you, you're his one and only mate. The person he loves more than anything in this universe. If you were to be hurt again or worse - if you were killed, Edward wouldn't want to stay, he'd wish for death, one that would tie him with you)
~ Bella understands the difference between vampires and wolves, mostly the range of brutal strength and lethal damage. Yes, you're very strong, but you're also smaller than the others. The other pack members tried their best to help you throughout the battle but eventually everything got so mixed up and no one could stick together for long. Bella used her gift to protect you, her focus on you never breaking, she needed you to be safe. When she got knocked down, the protective wall you had around you vanished. Almost immediately, you're greeted with a painful kick in the ribs, whining from the sensation. Some of your delicate ribs had snapped, broken into pieces. This made it difficult to move and even breathe. Thankfully, before anyone could finish you off, Bella and Emmett rushed to your side and took care of the threats surrounding you in that moment. Bella knew you couldn't fight like this so she ordered you to stay down, Emmett and Rosalie making sure no one got near you.
(Bella was never face to face with death when it came to you, your ability to be stealthy and safe granted both of you the sense of protection. After the battle ended, Bella apologized and nursed you back to health with the help of Carlisle. Don't ever underestimate the love she has for you, she will do anything to keep you alive, living by her side)
~ Seth is protective over you in a softer way. He doesn't show anger often and doesn't like to fight. His protectiveness stems from the fear of losing you, his heart is in your hands. You're his imprint, someone he needs to protect and love for the rest of his life. When it came time to fight the Volturi Seth felt anxious. In the beginning, before anyone ran, you were in your vampire form, standing near Bella. The pack remained hidden until necessary, trailing behind the line of vampires. He purposely placed himself close to you, nudging your arm. You could tell he was nervous and afraid so you pet his fur and kissed his head softly. Seth had no idea that would be the last affectionate gesture he'd receive from you. Once the fight began, everyone scattered and lives were taken left and right. Seth ran along side with you but your vampiric speed overshadowed his own. It all happened so fast that it didn't feel real. One minute you're in your vampire form then the next minute you're a wolf, earning glares and shocked expressions from the Volturi. They shown you no mercy, they needed you gone. Leah had to snarl and nip at Seth to get his attention, he was seconds away from running towards your attackers. Leah stopped him, it would've been suicide. Seth had to run away in the other direction, whimpering at the loss.
(The gruesome fight ended and Seth slowly walked to your wolf form, lifeless and stiff. He whined and nudged your body, trying to wake you up. The pack and some of the Cullens had to guide him away once more, telling him there was nothing he could do. Seth is forever heartbroken and missing you, his beautiful mate that left too soon)
~ Embry imprinted on you not too long ago, less than a year. The relationship was finally breaking the bitterness and melted into love and acceptance. He trusted you and knew you could fight on your own. The second the fight started, he ran with you to work as a team. If he needed help, you were there. If you needed help, he was there. The only thing that ruined the perfect dynamic was the ground cracking, opening and revealing an easy route to death. Embry is stuck on one side and you're on the other. Without thinking, Embry launched himself over to you, biting at the vampire who was trying to pull you down. He was successful at freeing you but unfortunately for him, he fell to his death, his eyes never leaving yours. In his heart, he knew. Embry knew he'd be dead in less than a minute yet he allowed himself to feel grateful, he knew you'd be okay now.
(The pack comforted you the best they could. You felt so guilty but they were adamant on not letting you sit in that headspace. They all knew Embry saved you out of love and they reassured you that Embry knew what he was doing in his final moments of life and that he would never change a thing about it)
~ Sam is your teammate, always by your side. During the fight, he never let you leave his sight. Sam protected you with everything he had within himself, he'd never forgive himself if something happened to you. Luckily, your life wasn't taken but you did get severely injured. He didn't let you blame yourself, even though you told him that you weren't paying attention. Sam took care of your wounds and loved on you, making you promise to never join a fight like that again, no matter what caused it.
(The love Sam has for you is beyond words and as long as he's around, you will be safe. Sam did tell you how proud he was of you when back at home. You were fearless. You used all the anger and hurt from your past to push yourself to the limit, taking out many vampires. Sam knew it wasn't easy so he didn't lecture you for acting on anger)
~ Leah isn't the best with relationships, especially the one she has with you. It started with hatred and not understanding each other. It took a long time to trust one another but the wait made it so worth it. The battle was the biggest test in trust. If she could count on you and if you could count on her. Against all odds, both of you fought like a team and ripped through the Volturi like a sport. Leah felt so proud of you, watching you use your powers amazed her even though she claimed she they never did before. You loved her dedication to protecting Seth, her personality slowly coming out into the light, she's softer and more down to earth than you thought. In the end, she saved your ass four times and you saved hers twice.
(Leah joked with you after it was over, telling you that you still owe her two more life lines. The battle tested the relationship perfectly and from then on, she opened up and you welcomed her with open arms, eventually teaching her all about your past and gifts)
~ Jacob never wanted you to fight let alone become a vampire. He had no choice or say in it. You were minutes away from dying and Carlisle had to change you. Jacob hated your kind but living without you would've been worse. Jacob also had a horrible habit of treating you like glass, getting overprotective for no reason. When the Volturi became an issue, he didn't ask you to stay out of it, he begged you. Jacob lost the facade of being some asshole with anger issues and soon you were shown how scared he actually was. You put your foot down though and demanded that if you couldn't fight, he had to stay home with you. It didn't go either way, both of you ended up in the battle field. Jacob basically followed you, hovering over you and never leaving, not even looking away from you. This caused an issue. Since he was so focused on your safety, he forgot about his. When he got jumped you immediately went into some different mindset that you never experienced before. You used every drop of power you had to help your mate survive. When you finally had the upper hand, Jacob took control and finished it for you.
(Jacob lectured you afterwards and ranted about how stupid that was, his frustration rising when you just chuckled and kissed his hot cheek. It took him some time to understand some things but eventually he did come to terms with it)
Charlie after Bella’s dramatic ass falls:
everyone at the whole cullen clan all the time:
Cullen Carny AU. Carlisle runs a vampire circus, picking up strays over the years, and turning them at their request. Alice flies high on the trapeze, landing perfect jumps that would break a human's ankle. Rosalie swallows swords, and then uses them on men who speculate about what else she can swallow. Emmett is the strongman, who narrowly avoids smashing records for secrecy's sake, much to his disappointment. Jasper assists Alice's gymnastics routine, tossing her to incredible heights while juggling increasingly dangerous things. Edward performs slight of hand, with his grand finale being to cut his lovely assistant, Esme, in half.
Humans love to dismiss things they cant explain, and the frenzy Jasper whips up in the crowd disorients them, making them question their senses. The next day it almost seems like a dream. Especially when they return to the site the next day and find it untouched, as though they were never there.
One day Bella swan, feeling like an outsider and desperate for change, hides under the bleachers after the show...
I read your post about Edward and Bella and omg you are so right
What do you think about the other Cullens couples?
Their love is "real"?
They are healthy couples?
They really know each other?
I know is a long question and all the cullens couples is a lot for me to ask, sorry. answer what you prefer
Glad you enjoy my meta! And the sad thing is that I’ve rambled so much about Edward and Bella I can no longer tell which meta you’re referring to. What has my life become?
This is a major question that requires several separate metas (all of which I intend to write), but I’ll nutshell it. In short, no. All the Cullen couples are divorces waiting to happen, with the possible exception of Rosalie and Emmet.
Carlisle and Esme don’t match. Carlisle’s big thing in life, the reason he was on his own for centuries in spite of having friends everywhere, the reason he left Volterra after living there for decades, and the reason why the Cullen coven works, is that the sanctity of human life is absolute to him. This is Carlisle 101. It’s not absolute to Esme. We know this from Midnight Sun(And the other books hinted at it), where Esme makes it clear that Bella’s life is not a priority. Like, at all.
I have other reasons for thinking her and Carlisle don’t work together, but this is the big one. She does the diet and she does the Cullen lifestyle, but she doesn’t share his ideals. If she did, she she would have wanted Edward to stay far away from Forks and temptation in Midnight Sun, like Carlisle did. She doesn’t.
There’s also the fact that he is a person who travelled all the world, has an insatiable thirst for knowledge, is interested in everything and would, when push comes to shove, put the welfare of others ahead of that of his own family (he risks his family’s lives for the Quileutes on two separate occasions, and would rather let Bella live and potentially anger the Volturi than kill her). Esme appears utterly lacking in ambition and curiosity, and puts Edward’s thirst and presence in Forks ahead of a human’s life.
Not to mention we see a pretty deep miscommunication in Midnight Sun. Carlisle sends Edward to speak to his mother for an intervention re: the Bella mess. This intervention turns out to be the talk I’ve referenced above, where Esme goes “Does the hamburger girl smell nice, son? Are you sure you won’t eat her?”.
Whatever Carlisle thought she’d be saying to Edward, I can’t imagine it was this.
I could keep going, but this is supposed to be a nutshell meta. Just, I see no future for her and Carlisle’s marriage. Denial is the only thing keeping them together.
Alice and Jasper are together because... well, because Alice said they should be together. Jasper was at the lowest point of his life when they met, and Alice offered him a better life. She saved him. This is what created their bond. Take this moment away, have them meet in another circumstance, and what would bring them together?
Their relationship is supposed to be this mystical, ineffable thing that just is. Soulmates if there ever were any. What I see is two people who don’t have anything in common, don’t even enjoy the other’s company that much, and have a lack of faith in each other. They’re together because they had harrowing beginnings and represent rescue to one another, but they don’t make each other happy.
Rosalie and Emmet are easily the best couple of the family, those two actually like each other. However, Emmet doesn’t stand up for Rosalie. She is criticized so much, and so often unfairly, by her family, and instead of sticking up for the wife he goes “Yeah, Rose is a bitch, but she’s my bitch. Love ya honey” which is... nice, but not really what she needs. And I question why he loves her. Take away her beauty, and would Emmet still have fallen for her?
Mostly, I think their big issue is that he doesn’t get her. Rosalie is a very complicated woman, and she deserves someone who loves and understands every little piece of her, good and bad. Emmet does love her, but his love is worship of her beauty. She is his goddess, which admittedly suits them well because that’s what she wants to be. The problem is that Rosalie’s complicated relationship with her beauty is one of her biggest problems, and I think she’d be much better served, and ultimately a happier and more fulfilled person, with a partner who didn’t care what she looked like.
So perhaps they’re not quite divorce material, not without plunging both Rosalie and Emmet into deep crisis anyway, but Rose could definitely be happier. And I think Emmet could be too.
Still, they’re a couple with issues, these are troubling issues but they’re still a couple. This is not the case for the others, those are all dumpster fires.
And nothing fans a dumpster fire relationship better than divorce papers.
Now that I’m back in the office because covid is ~over~ according to the state government, I will determine what type of coworker I have each Cullen is
Carlisle: gets his work done then spends the rest of his day walking around with a cup of coffee and gossiping
Esme: the lady that brings in cupcakes once a week and passive aggressively takes them to everyone’s desks if they don’t get eaten
Edward: the dude that hums loudly to himself and doesn’t seem to realize it
Rosalie: goes on a bunch of walks to ‘stretch her legs’
Emmet: guy that changes water cooler but makes sure everyone knows he’s the one that did it
Jasper: heats up broccoli in the staff microwave
Alice: wears heels every day and doesn’t let anyone forget it
Bella: ‘I can’t function without three cups of coffee hahaha’ but also is never seen drinking coffee
Never forget there was a time when The Vampire Diaries, Twilight and Teen Wolf existed at the same era.
