Jacob would have been so good if he had just been Bella’s friend. The one human friend who actually knows what’s going on because he’s involved in the supernatural world, because he’s torn between these two worlds too. Who loves her - loves her, but isn’t in love with her - who loves her enough to be a voice of reason, to step up, to say Please think about this- you’re making these decisions too fast, the consequences are too enormous to take this lightly, Bella, please don’t die. The one who is influenced by his heritage, and by common sense, who stands up and fights for his friend, who fights for her life as hard as he can- but who loves her enough to step down once he sees this is really what she wants, who loves her enough to recognize that we love people even if we don’t agree with their decisions. Jacob who is there for her during her pregnancy, because Edward is right when he says that Jacob gets Bella on levels he never will understand. Give me Jacob who is terrified for two days when Bella is transforming, because he doesn’t know if his best friend just vanished. Who is shaken by relief when she cracks a joke the first time she sees him then, and despite her red eyes and freakish beauty, Bella is still there. Jacob, who knows she’d never forgive herself for hurting anyone, let alone her own child- who volunteers to be the test for Bella’s restraint- not because he’s imprinted on Ness, but because he still loves Bella, because she’s still the most important person to him, because she’s still his best friend, despite their different choices, and Jacob will be there for her however he can.
Jacob, who is the only anchor to her old self, the only thing that represents normalcy for Bella when she has to let Charlie go ( because no matter how it plays out, at some point she has to). Jacob who also tells her off when she’s wrong or selfish-because that’s love too.
Give me a Jacob who truly loves Bella, but who’s not in love with her. Give me this friendship that is healthy for both of them, because it’s what a friendship should be: support, love, acceptance.
Jacob who doesn’t force kisses or gaslights her and makes her feel guilty about not loving him like he needs it. Who doesn’t think it’s funny that she breaks her hand because she punched him in the face after he forced a kiss on her.
Give me real unease between Jacob and Edward because they’re natural enemies, not because they’re rivals for Bella’s affection. Explore the mistrust, the prejudices, let me see them overcome these for Bella, let Bella be the active part in showing these two that their preconceived notions do not need to be true.
Give me Edward and Jacob slowly starting to trust each other- Edward who tentatively gets invited to bonfire night over time.
Edward who can get over himself and respect Jacob because once he spends time with him he sees that he loves Bella, and that he doesn’t necessarily wants them to be apart, as long as Edward is in control of the “monster inside” - which is something that Edward can agree with, because he wants the same thing. Let them draw solace from each other because if worse comes to worst, she’ll still have the other one. Let them be important to her in their own ways.
Requested by anonymous: So the reader and Alec from the Volturi are mates. Alec’s sister hates the reader because she thinks that the reader is stealing her bro. So she uses her powers on the reader. She keeps using her powers till reader is depressed and scared. Reader escapes to the Cullen’s house. Fast forward to when Alec finds her again but gets jealous because she’s happy and singing with jasper and Emmett while cooking. Everything has a happily ever after though!
This is kinda trash but I hope you like it anyways, anon.
“Aro, I have someone I’d like you to meet.” Alec pulled you along behind him.
Aro’s crimson eyes looked up from the novel he was reading, focusing on you. You felt naked under his stare, something about him making you uncomfortable.
His lips stretched into a smile that sent shivers down your spine. He stood up and handed his book to a young woman who was standing next to his chair, waving her away.
“Who’s this, Alec?” He came down the stairs and slowly approached you.
“This is (Y/N).” He placed his hand on your back and guided you closer towards Aro.
“(Y/N)…” He repeated, his eyes scanning over you. “And where did you meet her, Alec?”
“I went out a few months ago to go hunting and on the way back I found her bleeding in the street. She doesn’t know who it was that bit her, but they left her for dead.”
“How terrible. We at least have the decency to finish off our victims.” His eyes flashed to yours, and he must have noticed the hurt you felt from his insensitive comment. He noticed because he grabbed your hands and pulled you towards him. “I’m sorry, dear, how rude of me. Would you mind if I read your past?”
You looked over at Alec, not understanding what Aro meant.
“If he touches your skin, he can see all of the thoughts you’ve ever had and things from your memory.”
You looked back to him in uncertainty, but nodded anyways.
That awful grin spread across his face as he removed his gloves, his hands finding yours again. He stared deep into your eyes and it took all you had not to look away. “My, my…” He whispered after a moment. Your hands fell limp by your sides once he released them. “Thank you. You seem to be an interesting girl.” He turned to Alec. “Have you introduced her to Jane?”
He nodded. “Of course. Although I don’t think she’s been very kind to her.”
“Oh?” Aro tilted his head.
“I haven’t been very kind to whom?” A feminine voice seemed to echo in the large room. The beautiful blonde walked to the center where you were standing with the two men, her heels clicking against the marble floor.
“I’m just telling him the truth, Jane.” Her eyes burned in jealousy as he spoke.
“We want you to accept this sweet girl.” Aro told her, and she seemed to fume even more at his comment.
Her deep red eyes met yours and fear flashed through you. Her threatening gaze held yours and you soon felt a dull ache course through your body. Your breathing escalated and the ache grew into the worst pain you had ever felt. You collapsed onto the floor and your screams filled the air. Alec held you in his arms as he yelled at Jane to stop. You still focused on her eyes as you heard Aro commanding her to stop and Alec continued to yell.
Finally her stare became aloof instead of intense, and the pain stopped. She simply looked at Aro and turned around, heading back through the heavy wooden doors.
“I’m so sorry, (Y/N).” Alec held your cheek and you looked up at him.
You were sitting in one of the chambers as Alec had to tend to some business with other members of the Volturi. As you sat alone, all you could think about was how terrifying your mate’s twin sister was. Even though you cared greatly for Alec, you knew you could not live a life in fear of his jealous sister. She was a more experienced vampire than you and you could end your life easily.
You took a deep breath and quickly slipped out into the night.
You sat and watched Jasper and Emmett with a smile on your face. They were joking around and Emmett sang at the top of his lungs as he flipped a couple of steaks on the grill. You were so lucky to have found them after you escaped from Italy. Their mother figure, Esme, took you into their home in a heartbeat and you would forever be grateful for them. Of course you missed Alec, but this was a better life. A life that didn’t involve you being abused and fearing for your life.
“So why are we cooking again?”
“Edward’s father-in-law, a human by the way, is coming to visit. Gotta play the part.” Jasper smirked at you.
Your body suddenly went rigid upon hearing the voice. Jasper and Emmett looked shocked as they stared at the boy standing behind you.
You slowly turned around and met the familiar eyes of Alec. He looked surprised when he saw that your eyes were no longer red like his, they were gold.
“Oh my god.” You hopped off of the bar stool and hugged him tightly. “I’m sorry. I’m so so sorry.”
“Uhh (Y/N)? Please explain why one of them are here.” Emmett rolled up his sleeves to show that he would be ready to fight if anything happened.
“I never told you why I came here. I was living with Alec’s coven but…I ran away…” You trailed off.
“Why? What did they do to you?” Jasper growled and stepped around the counter but you held up your hand.
“My sister hurt her. Which is something I never intend on doing.” He looked down at you and you melted from his words.
“Alec…I can’t go back with you.” You looked down, feeling ashamed.
“Why? Are you with one of them?” He looked at the two vampires in jealousy.
Emmett smirked and Jasper’s face softened as he laughed at his accusation.
“No, no. They already have mates. I meant I can’t go back because of her. I’m afraid she’ll kill me.”
He looked at you sadly. “I figured that’s why you disappeared. So I told her if she didn’t want you there then I would leave too.”
This surprised you because you knew the two of them were very close. You didn’t quite know how to respond so you waited for him to go on.
“If you don’t want to go back, then I’ll go with you…anywhere.”
“I’m not sure, Alec. The Cullens have taken great care of me. I’d feel guilty just leaving them behind.” You frowned.
“Then we’ll stay in the area.” He grabbed your hand and gave it a squeeze. “(Y/N)…I will do whatever it takes to be with you. If you want to stay here, I’ll stay and just go visit my family when I feel like it. Just please don’t tell me to leave.”
You smiled and hugged him again, pulling back to kiss him sweetly. After a moment, Emmett cleared his throat and you backed away, blushing.
“We’ll be watching you, kid.” Jasper looked at Alec seriously but winked at you.
I hope there weren’t any mistakes because I didn’t have time to proofread because I have class. Oops
You frowned at the sight of the Quileutes at your family’s
gradation party. You weren’t sure why
they showed up in the first place. Last you heard Bella wasn’t on the best of
terms with Jacob after she clocked him in the face.
Yet there she was, chatting away with Jacob and his friends. She
didn’t seem too happy to see them, then again you never knew with Bella. She
didn’t show much emotion on her face. Either
way, I should go check on her or Edward will throw a hissy fit.
