One of my all-time favorite Twilight FanFiction stories is Fridays at Noon by, the exceptionally talented author of 7 stories, troublefollows1017 (aka Troublefollows Edward). This Fic has it all; not only is it very well-written, but it includes – Bella and Edward romance and angst, mystery, intrigue, and even some great comic-relief, all rolled into an intricate plot/storyline that keeps you wanting to read, non-stop, from beginning to end.
CEO, Edward Mason, is a powerful force – both professionally and personally – to be reckoned with; that is until he meets his match in waitress/teacher Bella Swan, in a Private Dining Room, at the restaurant “Eclipse”, one Friday at Noon. Both of their lives are never the same, as they bring a whole new level of meaning to a lot of pennies and nickels. *smiles* And as we journey, with them, through all the Fridays at Noon, we watch, in awe, as they learn, love, fight and experience life in each other’s exciting and unique worlds, while building a complex relationship.
What also makes this Fic so near and dear to my heart, is that Pennyward has not only brought me an amazing story to read, but he has also connected me with some of the most wonderful women, from around the world, in the PennyWARD’s Fridays at Noon Support Group on Facebook – ♥ you Pennyladies! If you are interested in joining our exciting group, where you will receive friendship, lots of laughs and teasers galore, you may “Send a Message” to Troublefollows Edward on Facebook.

*I know many of you may have already read Fridays at Noon, but I wanted to Rec it because it’s such a great read and also, we now have a Sequel! *read below*
I also want to mention that there are 10 chapters of Fridays at Noon Outtakes that are a must read! They are in no particular story order, but delve into EPOV, in the form of the camping trip and his journal entries, as well as Liam and Tyler’s POVs. They are very informative and well worth the read! 🙂

So now onto the intriguing Sequel/futuretake of Fridays at Noon. It is called Once Upon a Saturday by troublefollows1017. It’s a fascinating Drama to read, as we venture through Daddyward’s life as he raises his beautiful daughter Faith Elizabeth Masen (aka Penny). We also experience a variety of Edward’s flashbacks of his memories of Bella. *And that is all I am going to say on this subject….. 🙂 *
We are only 2 chapters into this Sequel, but I know that it is going to be amazing adventure. The story/plotline is captivating and I believe we will experience some very well-written Pennyward angst! In an A/N, Troublefollows Edward said, “You all asked for a sequel and here it is. Don’t hate me. I said I wouldn’t do this unless there was a story to be told. This is going to be short – 6 to 8 chapters total. It is one day in Edward’s life with flashbacks thrown in each chapter.”
It is my understanding that there have been some expressions of anxiety, surrounding this Sequel, resulting in mixed feelings/reviews; and I completely understand that we are all entitled to our own opinions, BUT IMO, we, as the readers, need to trust this exceptional author, respect her writing capabilities and just enjoy the intense ride we have always loved and enjoyed with our Pennyward!
