In Eclipse, in a scene Bella smacks Jake's arm ands like "Jacob! You know he doesn't have fangs!" (referring as Edward), so when Jake calls Carlisle "Dr.Fang", he is using a (dark) sense of humor. He knows Carlisle doesn't have fangs, and doesn't really have any ill feelings against him.
yeah, i know. But what kind of sense of humour is that? i don't get jake's humour at all. it still annoyed me, regardless. besides, why would he be joking if he asked the question to being with, if i recall correctly, he asked bella "don't you worry about the fangs?"

but whatever though. lets keepp this Carlisle related.

I think she died (woah, i am so Captin Abvious). It was very common at that century for deaths among women and children. i think, she died perhaps while giving or after giving birth to carlisle.

Carlisle seems to me to be overly careful of how he words his responses to questions. I know there's something to be said for watching what you say, but it felt like he was holding back sometimes... It comes off as respectful and loving, but I think he would be quite an interesting story all on his own. I wonder if SM patterned his character after anyone specific... He's so revered by the rest of the family... more than a father figure, it seems. Nearly God-like.

Just general information... maybe that he would feel it wasn't his place to disclose... or by not wanting to hurt feelings... It just seems to me that he would have FAR more information about things than he tells. He's .... diplomatic. Yeah... I think that's the word I'm looking for.

Hmm... ture. But how about Edward? He wouldn't be able to hide his feelings from him. Also, in DHN, Carlisle is really interested on why Edward won't leave when he wants to drink Bella's blood so badly. It was out of his character and he appeared to be nosy. I think that that may have been a mistake writing that scene.

Was he? I didn't really see him as nosy. Just really worried.
