What a very cool glimpse into Carlisle's thoughts. I liked his sense of honor - it reminded me of Edward's responses to Bella when she wanted to be with him before they were married, about propriety and honor. I also liked hearing his thoughts about going from a companion-type relationship with Edward to a truly grounded family with permanent ties of love. You did a great job with characterization here.
Thank you so much! Carlisle's character fascinates me, so I am so happy to hear that I'm doing well with him. I really appreciate your thoughts on that!
