I think I have decided to make an Aro Loves Carlisle fanmix. I already have a couple songs in mind, but I’m open to suggestions. Got any for me? Anything along the lines of unrequited love, I hate your wife/girlfriend, etc…
It’s really quite sad. They could have turned out so differently if they had been allowed to grow up as humans, or if they had been rescued by another vampire. The Guide implies that Caius’ sadism sort of rubbed off on Jane. Perhaps it wasn’t something that was inherent in her from the start.
I think Aro does love them in his way, but Aro loved his sister as well and still saw her as a tool and an obstacle. He saved them, he dotes on them, he loves them. But they are weapons in his arsenal and jewels in his crown. He shaped them and ‘condemned’ them to this life for better or worse. It’s tragic. Who knows who these two could have grown up to be and how their remarkable gifts may have manifested without their burning focusing them in such a negative way.
I love Aro. Breaking Dawn tarnished him a little bit because I was expecting a bigger, badder Big Bad and he just sort of panicked and left, but I rationalize it in my head as he’s playing a long game and he has a plan for the future—live to fight another day, that sort of thing. He knows all the Cullens’ and their allies’ strengths and weaknesses now, he knows that Alice can’t see hybrids. He’s still got Renata who protects him from physical attacks (something they left out of the movie for obvious reasons). So in my head, he’s just biding his time. The Cullens didn’t defeat him, they just gave him all the information he needed to defeat them one day…
Inspired by a discussion from a few weeks ago…
“Do you think it is in our nature to be as we are, brothers?”
Marcus lazily tilted his head in Aro’s direction but said nothing. Caius scowled. “What philosophy are you playing at now?”
“Simply musing,” Aro said with a wave of his hand. “It seems that men such as ourselves are suited for this life, but surely not all upon whom immortality is visited would take to it easily. And yet… I have never once, in all my centuries, met a vampire who did not eventually adapt to it and, indeed, embrace what we are.”
“And?” Caius demanded.
“Nothing. Simply musing, as I said.”
I liked your Fix It by the way, about Hybrids, and that thing in the end about Aro introducing the new baby to his children (the newborns siblings). I liked that. Off topic, Aro would be more obsessed about Hybrids then his humiliation at New Years Eve.
I think the idea of hybrids is pretty interesting, but I don’t think that SM was all that interested in exploring it. She just wanted Renesmee to be sunshine and light and love and sweetness and didn’t really think about the implications of her birth/species/lifestyle. I think I wanted to read that book rather than the fairytale cottage stuff we got in BD. lol.
And yeah, I agree, Aro would be ALL ABOUT the hybrids. Fascinated by their biology and their potential, especially since Renesmee proved they can be gifted like vampires and that psychic gifts can be inherited from parents. Of course he’d want some of his own to see how his gift might be passed on! That’s why he changed his sister, isn’t it? To see if she would be gifted like him. Imagine what his children might be able to do!

They started arriving only a few months after the Volturi left.
Word had spread all right, but the news that fanned across the vampire world had less to do with the Volturi’s humiliation and more to do with the possibility of hybrids. As it turned out, the Cullens were not the only vampires who longed for children, and before long, vampires were dragging frightened, heavily pregnant human women to Forks to meet the one physician qualified to treat the unusual condition.
When it was a lone male vampire with the human woman, Carlisle could tell himself that perhaps it was a Bella and Edward situation, that the vampire had genuinely loved the girl, that their coupling had been consensual. He knew deep down that it was probably not always the case, but he could pretend. When a mated pair showed up with a human woman, however, he knew there was no love there. The human girl was an incubator, nothing more, and more often than not the vampires made that perfectly clear. “See that our child is born safely,” they would say, “we don’t care about the human. Just keep her alive long enough for the child to be born.”
The miracle of Renesmee’s birth had swiftly turned into a nightmare.
So….I found this && It made me laugh.
