FanFiction Fridays – One Shot Wonders

This week I thought I would change course a bit and Rec some FanFiction One Shots. In the past, I haven’t been an avid reader of One Shots, but recently, after being told I was missing out on a whole other FanFiction world, I decided to delve into my “One Shots To Read” Folder and give them a go.

The main reason why I was never very interested in One Shots is because I like to read a well-rounded story, which includes a full plot and storyline with well-developed characters, and I never really felt I could get all that out of a One Shot, but I have to admit that some of the One Shots I have read recently were pretty damn good!  I will list some of them, with their summaries and links. I have chosen a bit of a variety, so hopefully there will be something here for everyone.

********************

The Heart of a King by MandyLeigh87 is a great little One Shot. It’s a historical romance, “Tudors inspired” and Kingward is sexy, powerful and hot!  While Lady Isabella is charmed by the King, can she resist her Kingward?!

Summary: “”I do not desire to be seen,” I murmured. He stopped and laughed a little under his breath. “What if it is my desire?” Historical os. Tudors inspired. B/E Rated M, AH  Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance – Chapters: 1 – Words: 5,793 – Reviews: 118 – Published: 6-19-11 – Complete”

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7098079/1/The_Heart_of_a_King

********************

My Life, My Love, My Heart by FictionFreak95 is one of the shortest, but most heart-wrenching One Shots I have ever read. It’s based on a B & E nightmare that Jo had one night and it is a great read, but ANGST in its finest!

Summary: “One shot – based on a very bad daydream. When tragedy strikes, how will you deal with it? BxE Uber Angst. Twilight – Rated: M – English – Tragedy/Angst – Chapters: 1 – Words: 2,435 – Reviews: 76 – Published: 8-24-10 – Bella & Edward – Complete”

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6267451/1/My_Life_My_Love_My_Heart

********************

Going Home is by butterflybetty. I must warn you that this is an E/B/J Slash. While, I do not read much Slash, I did read this and will say that it is well-written and smokin’ hot! If Slash is not your thing though, than this Fic is not for you.

Summary: “After a long shift in the ER, Edward goes home to Bella and Jasper. AH&MA for langauge and use of a little yellow fruit. Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Family – Chapters: 1 – Words: 6,805 – Reviews: 86 – Published: 7-3-10 – Complete”

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6109054/1/Going_Home

********************

Fluid Mechanics is a collaboration between Catastrophia and Scarlettplay. This story is cute and funny, with some perv to make an adorkable Geekward quite unique.”This Geekward story will be continued after the Wanna Be A Hardcore Nerdward Contest and will be nothing but pure fluff, no angst at all.”

Summary: “Virgin super kinky perv engineer, Dr. Edward Cullen has met his ultimate sexual fantasy in the flesh in pinup girl dressing fellow engineer, Dr. Bella Swan. Innuendos fly, but is Edward’s geek factor too thick for Bella to get her point across? Rated M for kinkiness, citrus, and periods of PMSL fall out of your chair hilarity. All fluff. 100% wussperv friendly. Word Count: 13,297.”

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7204865/1/Fluid_Mechanics

********************

The story She Gives Me Religion by Liz Lemon Bennett was originally a One Shot for The Cherry Exchange, 2010 Competition, and was the  first One Shot I’d ever read, quite a while back. Even though, it has now been expanded to become a very well-written, enthralling WIP, I still had to Rec it because it was just such an incredible read as a One Shot and my favorite One Shot to date!
Summary: “Hot-headed seminary student, Edward Masen meets just widowed bride Bella Swan. EPOV: AU/AH Started as O/S. Now expanded.
Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Chapters: 22 – Words: 185,559 – Reviews: 2250 – Updated: 7-26-11 – Published: 11-29-10 – Edward & Bella”
There are also  Weekly Teasers and Outtakes that accompany the full Fic.

******************** 

So, there you have it, a few One Shots  to try out if you’re looking for a quick and easy read. I would love to know what’s owning you, in the FanFiction world, this week  and/or any One Shots that have tickled your literary fancy!

Happy Reading! 🙂

  1. Morning MC! O.o so many of these sound sooo good! Thanks darlin’

    Well Our very own Ritao1tx is making her FanFic writing debut in an outtake/companion piece to Waiting in the Twilight. It’s posted under my name but it is all Her Baby!!! It’s freakin hilarious and complete at only three chapters! http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7223327/1/Another_Fine_Mess_Chapter_1_Pinapple_Pussy_and_Pot

    Another Fine Mess
    Summary:
    Edward Cullen has been isolated on the Breaking Dawn compound for far too long; at least that’s what two of his fans think. These two friends decide to take a “Road Trip” to “Free The Pretty” and Hilarity ensues!
    Twilight – Rated: M – English – Humor/Fantasy – Chapters: 3 – Words: 12,443 – Reviews: 4 – Updated: 7-29-11 – Published: 7-27-11 – Edward & Emmett.

    • Thanks Boss, I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit. I didn’t know rita wrote anything, how the hell did I not know this?! I am definitely reading this, right away! 🙂

    • Nicole

      Hi RF…I plan to read this one too. Haven’t had access to internet much and have updates to catch up on, but it is on my alert list.

      Can’t wait to read Rita’s stuff!

  2. kalaekalae

    Thank you MC… great recs… 🙂

  3. MC I love a good one shot. I have read most of the ones you mention and She Gives Me Religion is my favourite of them too. It has transitioned very well into a full length fic.

    I was going to recommend Another Fine Mess as a great fun read, but RobsFan-tasy has beaten me to it. I love DD’s and TT’s hair brained scheme. The next time they take a road trip to “Free The Pretty” I want to tag along with them lol.

    If you ever watched Little House on the Prairie, admit it most of us did, then you will love this one shot from ilovealion entitled Twilight On The Prairie. Even Laura Ingalls Wilder would be envious of this Bella.

    Twilight On The Prairie
    This one-shot was inspired by the pictures taken of RPattz during the filming of Water for Elephants. Farmward looked so hot in his “period attire” that I was inspired to put him on the Prairie with Bella. E&B friends to lovers…
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6319993/1/Twilight_on_the_Prairie

    The Spank the Monkey Contest inspired many spanking good one shots!
    33 in total and Learning To Let Go by GingerandGreen was my favourite amongst them. Edward and Bella have an essay to write -Masturbation as an essential response to college living conditions – discuss, drawing from your first-hand experience.

    Learning To Let Go
    An entry into the Spanking the Monkey! contest – Edward, Bella and friends are freshmen in college and learning about all the ups and downs and rounds and rounds that go with the territory.
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7097430/1/Learning_to_Let_Go

    I have been reading my way through all of Nolebucgrl’s stories and loved Stealing Home, this is a hot quickie read complete at two chapters.

    Stealing Home
    Edward Cullen is hot shot baseball player in a bit of a slump. Bella Swan is the girl that he couldn’t have long ago and now she’s his new owner and he can’t have her again. Will he walk away or swing for the fences?
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6031956/1/Stealing_Home

    • I loved Little House on The Prairie! Thanks, I will add that to my “One Shots To Read” folder. They all sound great & ooh the baseball one sounds right up my alley, I flove me some Sportsward, esp. when there is potential that he will be wielding his “slugger”! 😉 lol

    • roxiesmom2009

      I’m reading Nolebucgrls First and Ten. Hot hot. I love baseball, so Stealing Home is definitely in the batters box for me! (lol). Thanks for the rec on Twilight on the Prairie. Sounds awesome! And yes, I’m old enough to have watched that show! Some of my fav books as a kid!

      I have a one-shot rec that I’ll do when I get home so I can include the links.

  4. Thnx MC, these look like great recs and though I don’t generally do one shots, I’ll definitely check these out.

    • Your welcome TR & I know exactly where you’re coming from, I had only read a few One Shots until recently, but I decided to give them a try b/c I have SO many WIPs on the go & a few Completes I’m reading on my e-reader, that I take when I’m out & about with the kids; so I thought I would read some O/S, just b/c I had so many Rec’d to me.

      One I didn’t read yet, but it’s been highly Rec’d & I was told I “had to read it b/c it is fantastic”, so I am going to give it a go this weekend, is “bend me, break me” by dariachenowith. It’s Mentalward/DARKward at his worst & even though Daria posted it as a One Shot, it is over 40,000 words. You might like to try this where it’s longer.

      Summary: “You know how you sometimes look back and think something like ‘why did I have to say that’ For the record, don’t.” – unofficial mentalward contest entry. Dark, violent, OOC/AH, read with caution. M-rated for gory violence & smut

      Have a great weekend TeamRob!
      🙂 MC

      • newyorkkisses

        This sounds great, MC! Love reading some Mentalward/Darkward for a change in between all the fluff and angst. 😉

      • roxiesmom2009

        Oh yeah….I read the first paragraph of bend me break me and it all came rushing back. That was an amazing one-shot. But readers be warned it is everything she says it is and more!

        • newyorkkisses

          And it’s a Non-HEA so be warned. 😉 I read it last night and it was great. Would have loved to have a HEA-ending, but it had to end the way it did, fitted the story perfectly.

  5. somanywards

    Thank you ladies*
    these are right on time 🙂

  6. newyorkkisses

    Thank you for these recs, MC. For the same reasons that you described, I am also not someone who usually goes for one-shots, but I’ll definitely give these a try. 🙂
    This week I haven’t done much reading as I was stuck writing finals at university and then promptly fell asleep on the couch last night when I actually wanted to read fic. 😉 I did start one earlier this week though that I’m really enjoying. It has a “Catching Spiders”/”The Blessing & The Curse”- vibe going on and I’m dying to see where this is going. It’s called “Ice Inside Your Soul”.
    Summary:
    Bella and Edward were in the most dysfunctional type of relationship. Sometimes love does not conquer all. When it ends, how hard will it be to move on and find normalcy? Do they even want to? AH, slightly occ

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6568476/1/Ice_Inside_Your_Soul

    Have a great weekend, ladies!

    • Hey NYK! This one sounds great – I will have to check it out 🙂 I hope you do well in your finals, bb! oxox AV

      • newyorkkisses

        Aww, thank you so much, bb! I have a good feeling about the exams I wrote. One more left in February and then I’m finally done with everything. 😉 XO

Ima angst hOOr!! thank you for the recs m’dear I will have to add em to the never ending list! as far as one shots go I usually never went into those too much but when you don’t have time to read a full story they are good to hold you over for a bit! so I will rec a couple that I enjoyed

    Bella’s bad. Really bad. So bad that her mother has had enough, and sends her off to Bible boarding school in the South, where she meets a delectably Christian Prudeward who wants no part in her sexual shenanigans. Can she use her body to change his mind? After all… doesn’t it all boil down to biology?

    Baker Goddess Bella counts the simple connections she has with the dirty, hot construction worker next door to her bakery. Will her simple math have a positive outcome or is she destined for unfulfilled fantasies?

    She thinks that I’m rejecting her. I know I’m still rejecting myself. – Five nights that could have happened in Eclipse. You know, if you forget that whole abstinence thing.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7042713/1/What_I_Want
    Edward’s life for the past three years has lead up to this point- revenge. But he was going to have to rely on a decent amount of luck. He never expected his good luck charm to appear in the form of a beautiful, submissive PA.

  9. Howdy ladies….whew my week is finally over. I think I clocked about 65 hrs this week. Next will be the same way and Fri we head out for our cruise.

    Hum, I don’t really read that many one shots either, but I have read a few since I like these authors. I am sure they are nothing new, but maybe to some newbies they are.

    Bella is a ballet dancer, and so is Edward. They have a volatile history and generally ignore each other, until Edward decides to pop in to the rehearsal room one day… O/S for The Twinklings FMF. Lemons, cheesy R&B music, and leg warmers included.

    • roxiesmom2009

      I thought clsuperstar was going to continue Monkey Business…haven’t seen anything from her in a while…I know she went the publishing route so maybe she’s just busy with that.

      • She is. Her 2nd book is being tweaked now so it will be ready soon I hope. She is writing a trilogy. She wants to finish it, but I fear her other published series is taking prescience.

    • Nicole

      Glad to know you can relax now RDM…I like several of your OS rec’s..very good.

      Here is a HAWT one shot…that I think you also read too.

    Wow these sound great! Thanks, ladies.

  15. roxiesmom2009

    Hey ladies! *waves* I used to not like one shots, but I find them very handy when waiting for other stories to update. Some really stick with you…I read quite a few in the Black Balloon contest…but I wouldn’t rec them unless you are really into sad. Because they are sad…
    But on a lighter note, I’m going to rec Paper Flower again. I know I rec’d this on RAoR, but shit, what could be better than a slighter older (early 30’s), slightly heavier, shy Bella hiring an escort (male prostitute!) and he turns out to be Edward Cullen?? Can you say unnnnnngh!!
    Ok this is NOT letting me leave a link. I’ll try again.

  18. Nicole

    Nice rec’s MC…Oneshots are an excellent filler like when your standing in line someplace, or have your lunch break. You get all the FF feel and lemons without having to put in the time that you don’t always have.

    Here is one I liked. I like this authors work and BDSM stuff.

  21. So excited for some one-shots! Not really my cuppa tea but you got me excited 🙂

    I also wanted to mention that She Gives Me Religion is a great story…don’t be put off by the fact that Edward is a seminary student. There are some great lemons as well as some angst. It’s an emotional story but so far it’s been a great ride with some humor thrown in as well!

  22. Hey MC and ladies! OMG – I love one shots!! They are like little nuggets of goodness – just what you need sometimes when you don’t have a lot of time. I have not read any of these, MC, so on the list they go!!

    Talking of one shots – if you like smut and a one shot (or four) like I do, you might like this one – Disciplinarian by indefinable1: http://www.thewriterscoffeeshop.com/library/viewstory.php?sid=4594&ageconsent=ok&warning=3 This little ditty is a great smutty little read – warning – teacher/student!

    The other one shot I love is she viking’s Amazing http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7071313/1/Amazing – I love everything sheviking does and this one is a lovely read.

    Hope everyone is having a great week! AV oxo
