Cullen Lovin’ Part 1: Alice Cullen

4 11 2009

15 days!!!!

New Moon Quote-of-the-Day: “You’re not asleep, and you’re not dead. I’m here, and I love you. I have always loved you, and I will always love you. I was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that I was away. When I told you that I didn’t want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy.” –Edward, Chapter 23

The people have spoken – they love Alice, Jasper and Emmett equally! I intended to do all 3 in one post, but once I got started, I realized there was so much to love about each of them that they each deserved their own post! So, come back tomorrow for the Jasper installment of the Cullen Lovin’ series, followed by Emmett, then Rose, and then the rest of the Cullen Coven!

Reasons to Love Alice Cullen

1. No brainer – she can see the future.

“Some things are more certain than others… like the weather. People are harder. I only see the course they’re on while they’re on it. Once they change their minds — make a new decision, no matter how small — the whole future shifts.” (Twilight, Chapter 22)

2. She is one of the only Cullens that can contend with Edward and his mind-reading. Case in point: The epic chess game.

“Edward and Alice playing chess was one of the funniest things I’d ever seen. They’d sat there nearly motionless, staring at the board, while Alice foresaw the moves he would make and he picked the moves she would make in return out of her head. They played most of the game in their minds; I think they’d each moved two pawns when Alice suddenly flicked her king over and surrendered. It took all of three minutes.” (Eclipse, Chapter 2)

Also, there was the rock-paper-scissors match in Breaking Dawn.

Alice: “I know – I’ll play you for it. Rock, paper, scissors.”

Edward: “Why don’t you just tell me who wins?”

Alice: “I do. Excellent.” (Chapter 24)

Need I say more?

3. She doesn’t have a problem with felonies.

Three words: Grand theft auto.

Alice: “How strongly are you opposed to grand theft auto?” (New Moon, Chapter 19) 

And she kidnapped Bella, held her hostage and tortured her.

Bella: “I have been tortured — Alice painted my toenails.” (Eclipse, Chapter 6)

Alice: “This hostage stuff is fun.” (Eclipse, Chapter 6)

4. She drives the coolest Cullen car. (In my very un-car-knowledgeable opinion. To quote Bella: “I don’t speak Car and Driver.” Twilight, Chapter 11)

Porsche 911 Turbo

Alice: “And speaking of Italy and sports cars that I stole there, you still owe me a yellow Porsche.” (Eclipse, Chapter 2)

4. In Eclipse, we get to see her ninja battle skills. The scene describing Jasper trying to catch her is basically amazing. 

“Though I kne that Jasper would never allow any harm to come to Alice, it was still hard to watch as he sank back into a crouch facing her. Alice stood motionlessly, looking tiny as a doll after Emmett, smiling to herself. Jasper shifted forward, then slinked to her left.

Alice closed her eyes.

My heard thumped unevenly as Jasper stalked toward where Alice stood.

Jasper sprang, disappearing. Suddenly he was on the other side of Alice. She didn’t ppear to have moved.

Jasper wheeled and launched himself at her again, only to land in a crouch behind her like the first time; all the while Alice stood smiling with her eyes closed.

I watched Alice more carefully now.

She was moving — I’d just been missing it, distracted by Jasper’s atacks. She took a small step forward at the exact second tat Jasper’s body flew through the spot where she’d just been standing. She took another step, while Jasper’s grasping hands whistled past where her waist had been.

Jasper closed in, and Alice began to move faster. She was dancing — spiraling and twisting and curling in on herself. Jasper was her partner, lunging, reaching through her graceful patterns, never touching her, like every movement was choreographed. Finally, Alice laughed.

Out of nowhere she was perched on Jasper’s back, her lips at his neck.

“Gotcha,” she said, and kissed his throat.

Jasper chuckled, shaking his head. “You truly are one frightening little monster.”” (Chapter 18)

5. She saved the day in Breaking Dawn (along with Bella) with that brilliant plan that I only fully understood after reading Breaking Dawn the second time.

6. The girl knows how to throw a party.

“He held the door for me, keeping his arm securely around my waist. I stood frozen there for a minute, then I slowly shook me head.

“Unbelievable.”

Edward shrugged. “Alice will be Alice.”

The interior of the Cullens’ home had been transformed into a nightclub — the kind that didn’t often exist in real life, only on TV.” (Eclipse, Chapter 17)

7. She says things like “It sounded like you were having Bella for lunch, and we came to see if you would share.” (Twilight, Chapter 16)

8. She’s one fly vampire (yes I said “fly” like it’s the 90s).

Alice’s prom dress from Twilight, according to Stephenie Meyer’s website:

Alice Prom Dress

“I clutched at the pale silk that covered my skin, panicking again, while an insignificant part of my mind note taht Alice must have dressed me.” –Bella (Breaking Dawn, Chapter 20)

All quotes said by Alice:

“You don’t have anything like this. For crying out loud, you only own one skirt!” (Eclipse, Chapter 16)

“No one dressed by me ever looks like an idiot.” (Breaking Dawn, Chapter 1)

“You’ll be my sister officially in ten short hours… it’s about time you get over this aversion to new clothes.” (Breaking Dawn, Chapter 3)

“Her fashion sense hasn’t improved as much as her balance.” (Breaking Dawn, Chapter 21)

“But look at how she’s dressed. It’s been killing me all day. That is clearly the priority.” (Breaking Dawn, Chapter 24)

“Look at you! You need me to show you how to use your closet.” (Breaking Dawn, Chapter 25)

Also see the Twilight outtake on Stephenie’s site: Shopping with Alice.

9. She helps Jasper cheat at chess with Emmett. Cause really, what’s more fun than beating Emmett at anything (be it arm-wrestling or bear-catchng :-))

 “Emmett and Jasper were in the middle of an elaborate game of chess, utilizing eight joined boards — sperad out along the glassback wall — and their own complicated set of rules. They would let m play; only Alicew ould play games with me anymore…

Alice leaned her head around the wall after a moment ad started mouthing Emmet’s next moves — Emmett sat on the floor wth his back to her — to Jasper, who kept his expression very smooth as he cut off Emmett’s favorite knight.” (Midnight Sun, Chapter 7)

 

There you have them, some of my top reasons for loving the frightening little monster. Alice is awesome. After Edward, I think she is definitely my favorite Cullen. So what about you? What do you love about Alice that I left out?
