Aro is happy because that’s totally Carlisle in the background.
Twilight Book/Movie Meme: Favorite Brotps 1/3
Aro & Carlisle! They are the weirdest, most bizarre but kind of adorable frenemies ever. I think they probably were legit bros at first, then Carlisle began to realize what a psychopath Aro was and he pulled away but Aro kind of refused to acknowledge it and still considers them BFFs.
Twilight Book/Movie Meme: Best Villain* 1/3
*although I really liked the Volturi better when they were the amoral law rather than out-right villains, he’s still the best.
Twilight book/movie meme: Favorite Male Character 2/3
I know it doesn’t really make sense for my favorites to be Carlisle and Aro, but it is what it is. I am a girl of contradictions.
It’s here! I had a ton of great suggestions from people and I’ll post a list of all the suggested songs eventually, but I wanted to keep it short so I narrowed it down to 10. You get two Jonathan Coulton songs because evil overlords in love is kind of his thing. “Seasons in the Sun” was Michael Sheen’s pick for an Aro theme song, so naturally I had to include it.

1. Bad Romance – 30 Seconds to Mars (Lady Gaga Cover)
“Ah, how I miss my friend Carlisle!”
I want your love, I don’t wanna be friends.
2. Skullcrusher Mountain – Jonathan Coulton
“Carlisle stayed with them […] just a few decades. He greatly admired their civility, their refinement, but they persisted in trying to cure his aversion to ‘his natural food source.’”
I've been patient, I've been gracious, and this mountain is covered with wolves. […] Maybe you could stay and have another drink, and think about me and you.
3. I’m Your Boyfriend Now – They Might Be Giants
“Aro was impressed and intrigued by Carlisle’s ‘vegetarian’ philosophy.”
And though the world may think you strange, I find you great.
4. The Horror of Our Love – Ludo
“[Aro once had] a guard deliver a profusely bleeding human body to the library where Carlisle was studying.”
I’ve murdered half the town, left you love notes on their headstones. I’ll fill the graveyards until I have you.
5. Someone Like You – Jay Brannan (Adele Cover)
“Your memories of him are quite a gift for me.”
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you would be reminded that for me, it isn’t over.
6. Nemeses – Jonathan Coulton f. John Roderick
“Fair words, Carlisle, but a little out of place considering the battalion you’ve assembled against me.”
Promise me you’ll let me be the one, the worst of all your enemies. Pretending you’re a friend to me, say that we’ll be nemeses.
7. I Can’t Decide – Scissor Sisters
“Truly, Carlisle, nothing would please me more than to preserve your life today.”
I can’t decide whether you should live or die. Oh you’ll probably go to heaven, don’t hang your head and cry, don’t wonder why.
8. Criminal – Fiona Apple
“I am sorry to earn your disapproval, my dear friend. Perhaps, in time, you will forgive me.”
So what would an angel say? The devil wants to know…
9. Seasons in the Sun – Black Box Recorder (Terry Jacks Cover)
“Aro bowed his head, the picture of remorse, and drifted backward for a moment before he turned around.”
Goodbye my friend, it’s hard to die when all the birds are singing in the sky; Now that the spring is in the air. Pretty boys are ev’rywhere. Think of me and I’ll be there.
Bonus Track: The Boy is Mine – Glee Cast (Brandy & Monica Cover)
Esme vs Aro smackdown, basically.
You need to give it up, had about enough. It’s not hard to see the boy is mine. I’m sorry that you seem to be confused. He belongs to me, the boy is mine.
This awkward feeling when you realize that the Volturi leader is the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
