This week I started a new WIP, just one chapter so far, but RA ladies, I gotta say that this looks like it is going to be GOOD! It is called Outbound and it is collaboration between jarkin33 and phoebes.promise, who call themselves aftrnoonlight.
These ladies really know how to write a well-rounded 1st chapter! Bella is a Flight Attendant and Guardian of her niece, Mak, while Edward is the owner of a restaurant/bar called Breeze. They meet one night at Breeze and sparks fly, right away! *fans self*
This story has great promise and, by the looks of the 1st chapter, it is going to deal with multiple plots & storylines; not only do we get a romantic, hot relationship between Edward and Bella, but some family angst & drama, as well. It will update each Monday, and I’m definitely going to follow this story and can’t wait until next Monday!
Summary for Outbound: “Two beautiful souls humbly traveling life’s lonely path, until fate suddenly shows her hand. Will Edward and Bella surrender willingly… A tender, romantic tale of love and life in the clouds. Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 1 – Words: 6,447 – Reviews: 68 – Published: 7-31-11 – Edward & Bella”
Another great WIP Fic I have been reading – (I also Beta this story), is called The Trip by TJE. Besides the fact that this is a wonderfully gentle, Edward and Bella, love story, I also wanted to Rec it because it is just not getting the love it deserves. TJE has worked so diligently to write a well-rounded story, and she has only 51 reviews so far. Please, give this a try, it’s really sweet. 🙂
Anthony (aka Edward) is a world famous actor, while Bella works for Newton’s, in the office, in Port Angeles. When their paths cross, while Bella is on vacation in New York, with her best-friend Rosalie, connections are made and Anthony and Bella realize that neither of their lives will ever be the same.
Summary for The Trip : “Bella’s vacation ends up being quite different than what she’d expected when she crosses paths with actor, Anthony Cullen. ExB. All Human. Some OOC. AU. Canon pairings. Romance/Humor/Drama. Rated for language & future lemons -not smut- Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Humor – Chapters: 11 – Words: 68,065 – Reviews: 46 – Updated: 7-18-11 – Published: 2-22-11 – Bella & Edward”
Since, some of you liked the One Shots, I thought I would include another one that I read this week and really enjoyed. It’s called One Night by momof4luvntwisaga. It’s a great O/S full of angst, and the author won several awards for this little gem in the TLS Lyrics and Lemons Contest. It does end with some uncertainty, so I checked with the author and she is thinking of continuing with another chapter, just to wrap things up nice & neat.
Summary for One Night : “Coming home to find his wife, Bella, packed and ready to leave him, Edward tries to reconnect one final time before she says it’s over. Twilight – Rated: M – English – Angst – Chapters: 1 – Words: 4,151 – Reviews: 11 – Published: 8-1-11 – Edward & Bella – Complete”
Yesterday, I was Rec’d this f*ck-hot little piece, that was written as a Birthday present for the author’s friend, and let me tell you, I want me a friend that can write like this! The Fic is called Edward in the Afternoon by cosmogirl7481 and it is fantastic! Written and Completed in one day.
Edward and Bella meet in their apartment building, after Bella has a little mishap with her coffee and mail, and things progress VERY quickly from this point on. I really enjoyed reading this because it was written with an abruptness (short/precise wording) that suits the theme of the story perfectly. I can guarantee, my lovelies, that you will be *fanning yourself & your vajayay* after you read all the lemony goodness in this story!
Summary for Edward in the Afternoon : “My birthday present for Marvar: A boy meets girl story with sweltering heat, iced coffee and lots of sex… ExB, AH and OOC because no one is a virgin. Romance and humor with a touch of drama. Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Humor – Chapters: 15 – Words: 9,463 – Reviews: 902 – Published: 8-4-11 – Bella & Edward – Complete”
So, that’s some what I’ve been into this past week, in the FanFiction world. I would love to know what’s owning you this week. Please feel free to share! 🙂
