Ok, I have seen this making the rounds, and thought it was about time I had a go.
Character Connection is a weekly meme run by Jen of The Introverted Reader, where we spotlight the characters we love.
This week, it's Jasper Hale from the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer.
I have this problem. While other girls swoon over Edward or Jake, and argue over which is better, my mind always seems to end up on you. Don't get me wrong, Edward and Jake are pretty awesome, but you're the enigma. Seriously, who are you?
Sure, you're a vampire. You're the vampire who has problems with the Cullen's lifestyle, so you're the most dangerous. You're also the guy who got turned during the Civil War, and knows quite a bit about fighting other vampires. Also, you're Alice's husband. You're the one who has the ability to manipulate people's emotions (that is seriously cool, by way. Do you realise how much power you have? More of that later.) What else?
What else do I know, let's see. You went to study Philosophy at college, and you have a study in the Cullen house, so you like to learn and read, which is cool. But what else? What do you like to read? What music do you listen to? What do you do for fun (don't say Alice)? Did Edward ever give you that motorbike? I know bits and pieces about your family, but you're just a mystery, and I want to know! There's nothing like a mystery to keep a girl wondering, and I've been trying to figure you out for a damn long time. I'm not really getting anywhere.
I suggest we meet up for coffee and have a chat. It's not like you'd be cheating on Alice or anything, it's just coffee (I know neither of us like coffee, but we can ignore that). You're just a jigsaw puzzle with pieces missing, and it's driving me mental.
So yeah, how's about it? Would flattery sway you? Because I could go on forever about how awesome your ability is. I mean seriously, you can make people feel just about anything you like. If you wanted someone to feel sad, how sad could you make them? How about depressed? How badly could you make someone feel? That is seriously scary! Yet strangely awesome, all that power. I'm kind of in awe. There's more, but I rather talk to you about it to your face. So can we go for coffee please?
Just one request; please don't eat me.
P.S. By the way, that Jackson Rathbone who plays you in the movie, seriously beautiful. If there's any chance you look anything like him, it's probably a bad idea that we meet. I doubt I'd be about to form words, let alone ask any questions. And you'd probably get freaked out by my stare.
