BD: Best Friends by sunni-sideup BD: Best Friends by sunni-sideup
Mild Breaking Dawn spoilers.

Edward turned back toward us, and Aro joined him, throwing one arm casually over Edward's shoulder like they were the best of friends--all the while maintaining contact with Edward's skin. --Breaking Dawn, p. 694

(Edit: Lots of people were asking what page this was on, and I finally looked it up. XD)

Gah. This took me a while. And, of course, I still have no idea to color fabric. And I'm too lazy to find out. It's a dilemma.

Anyway, I drew this after I finished Breaking Dawn. This was definitely my favorite part of the book. I mean, this one specific moment is my favorite part. When Aro slings his arm around Edward. I fangirled for about a minute straight before I could even continue reading. At that point, Aro was saving the book for me. (Although I like it much better now than I did when I was actually reading it.)

So I just had to draw this scene, because nothing gives me greater joy than seeing my two favorite characters buddy up. Have I mentioned I'm a huge Aro fan?

Speaking of which, thank you everyone who's been, like, dedicating Volturi art to me. There's been quite a few, and I'm happy that there's more Volturi love going around. ^^

Alright, that's it.

Original Sketch

Edward, Aro (c) Stephenie Meyer

Thanks! Lol, that scene is filled with so much tension.

ARO: I know what you're thinking... and you couldn't rip it off if you tried.
EDWARD: I know what you're thinking, and Carlisle is happily married.
ARO: :paranoid:

This is what made me look up Aro, considering I never got that far in book 2, skipped 3, and was shocked there was even a 4.

Needless to say, it inspired my 500 Views pic.

I'm tempted to make an Aro Sim just to see what his reaction would be to llama mascots.

Aro: OMFG LLAMA. *attacks*

Dude, I make Volturi Sims all the time. Unfortunately, Aro is not quite as mental as I'd like him to be, but whatever. He has a fabulous job in politics.

Sadly, I do not know what llama mascots are. I only have one or two expansion packs.

Llama mascots are invasive flirts that take the college campus by storm and trash the place.

Aro... politics... OBJECTION. *point*

does have long hair? everyone draws him with long hair....i think i TOTALLY missed that part of his description....cos like, i've always seen him with....no hair?

i suppose he always wears a hooded cape in my mind, so i never saw his hair...

but yes, this was HILARIOUS. i was like, Aro, what are you doing?

(Y' see, Aro really just digs Carlisle, and getting all handsy with his 'son' is just a way of getting back at him for hooking up with Esme.)
