Dr. Carlisle Cullen ([personal profile] ofthefamily) wrote2010-05-11 11:34 am

Golden: 1819.

An old face. Calmer, older, and yet all the same unchanged.

At least he's not running for his life, now. And he knows where he is.

For Carlisle Cullen, this is always a good start.

He's reading a book, next to the The Window with a bottle of water balanced on the end of an arm of the chair, which is completely natural for the setting of Milliways to catch him doing.

And it's the calm more than anything that leaves him expecting Carlisle from his own home when he is glancing over the top of the pages when he finishes his paragraph.

The breadth of it, the spectrum of emotion in his name and the sudden smile, is a little surprising. Home, being a given, for the most part. But addressed, he does allow his book to close over a finger and lower it toward his lap, with with an eyebrow raising inquiringly.

Oh.

He doesn't blink, or shift first. He isn't human, and his reactions aren't, and the first word makes more sense. Causes the lack of reaction to split, the edge, and only the edge, of his lips tugging his cheek upward on one side.

"For me or for you?"
themidnightson: (Contented Talking)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 04:28 pm (UTC)(link)
There's a derisive snort.

"To you."
themidnightson: (Just Your Average American Teenager)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 04:33 pm (UTC)(link)
"2005." He does not say still. The annoyance of that unchanging fact is already compounded upon each time. The number of days is always ludicrious in comparison.

"Years for you." Again. "You're--"

Edward countenance is light, but his gaze is exacting, specific, as though looking through him. Which he is up to a point. Carlisle is only thinking so much though so far.

"--different."
themidnightson: (Edward Anthony)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 04:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Edward nodded. He's not sad for that. Carlisle started on finding his center, who he is -- who he will be. The person that finds him, eventually. Who...saves him, damns him, forgives him, remakes him a million times over in his image.

The person who gave them all an (almost) unconditional home.
Still he can't help some solemnity that surges. The doubt.

He's had too many decades not showing his real reaction.
The pleasant expression softens, but stays. Mostly.


"Where are you now?"
themidnightson: (Smile - A Real One)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 04:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Edward smiled, without thought to how and why he did.

It's odd. The reverence and the full circle notion of it. And it doesn't really even make it to either of them as a thought. It just sort of bursts against the side of mind and mouth.
themidnightson: (Soft hiding in me Somewhere)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 04:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Edward Cullen is trying to control his mouth. This is usually not an issue he has. Everyone and everyone they know would be able to point out that truth, for it's better and worst qualities.

Even with his lips pressed closed, when he leans back against the chair back, there's something of it there. In his eyes, of not the the raise of his cheeks.

"What do you think so far?"
themidnightson: (Default)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 05:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Edward snorted, quiet. As though the word might have been too small. But he was at least looking at the fact he was closing his book entirely and setting it on his thigh.

"Good."
themidnightson: (Default)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 05:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Edward brow rose.

It's enough of a question, isn't it?
themidnightson: (Tuxedo Timez)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 05:26 pm (UTC)(link)
"Enough?"

And it is a question. He's thinking about the journals. He has them for eternity in his mind. But they do not have every day of every year. Which is why he's trying to think of what all was covered during that time.
themidnightson: (The Midnight Son)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 05:34 pm (UTC)(link)
That's --







-- ludicrous is almost etched in the twitch of his lips.
themidnightson: (Casual Times)

[personal profile] themidnightson 2010-05-11 05:43 pm (UTC)(link)
He asks a question he (thinks he) already knows the answer to.

"Are they still alive?"
