FanFiction Fridays – Recs for Aug 5/11

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! 🙂

  1. Third time is a charm if it don’t post this time I effin QUIT!
    Argh word press hates me…

    Thanks M/C I think I will hold off on the torture of starting a story in the first chapter but it sounds great and I am bookmarking to check on its progress…after this weeks disappointment in myself for starting two more WIP I want to kick me own tush for it…

    The oneshot sounds great…I bookmarked it!

    Yes I started Pinkyswear by kharizzmatik

    here is her explanation
    A/N: Once upon a time my friend ShearEnvy pinged me and said she thought someone should write a Twific that was sorta like the movie My Best Friends Wedding (with the same basic premise) but not really like it in the fact that she thinks the ending was very horribly wrong (I have to agree, WTF Michael?). I said that would be awesome and the subject was dropped. She did some *wink wink, nudge nudge* later. I didn’t get the hint. Finally, she broke out the big guns and flat out triple dog dared me to write it for her. And well, I’m pretty sure there’s a law or a commandment about that, thou shalt not turn down a triple dog dare. So here I am, writing a Twific with the same basic idea as MBFW, but at the same time it’s not really the same story. It’ll contain some elements/lines/ideas/scenes from the movie, but much more and (obviously) a different ending. That’s necessary (again, WTF Michael?).

    This story is absolutely nothing like anything else I’ve written before, so if you’re looking for something similar to EP you might want to not proceed. There’s minimal angst and the chapters will be on the short side for me. Updates are planned once a week on Fridays.

    Well….she did it…damn her and her writing skillz..
    8 chapters and I AM HOOKED…she is great at plot twists…she stuns me with her skills…

    Everyone knows EP is my favorite fanfic but my favorite author is and will always be the enigmatic Lola Shoes who brought my Twilight Saga to a close the way it should have ended and in my world it was meant to end that way!

    Then I went and dived into
    Unexpected Circumstances…by Savage7289

    She is an awesome writer and has me all twisted up inside and out over this damn story…now i am cast into the pits of ‘waiting for updates Purgatory’ and they are not coming fast enough damn it!

    But dont you all just love that last line of a comment or question she tosses out there? She cracks me up with those! Its an awesome little signature trait she has!

    Jada and her Fold your Wings has me pulling my hair out…she is teasing the hell out of us and I think she laughs each chapter she sends out because she gives us just enough to yearn and long for the next chapter…It’s torture but the story has me so freaking hooked!

    So I am all up for one shots because they won’t leave me hanging…..
    thanks MC you RAWK….

    crosses her fingers and hopes this time it posts….hey wait i could copy this before I send it again into the abyss of wordpress’s black hole….

    • Nicole

      Hi RHM, Yes Savage’s work is very good. I too am reading that one. Savages AN’s are entertaining too huh, and Fold Your Wings with RoughWard. I’m really curious to see how this one is going to end now.

      I have Pinky Swear on Alert, and I like her writing too, but haven’t started reading it yet. I’llhave to bump it up to start sooner.

      You know bb…I think you should write an all Mafia Story sometime too. *All Human*. I think you’d be good at it too. EP is an Epic FF…like your VampWards with BDSM are, but I could see you writing a Mafia story too.

      PS…I haven’t been able to post much here either. WordPress has it in for me too. It works fine at some sights and not at others…go figure. 😉

    • newyorkkisses

      I’m dying to start “Unexpected Circumstances”! But I’ll definitely wait for it to complete first, I can’t take the angst you’re all describing while waiting for updates on this one. Totally hooked on “Fold your Wings”, too. 😉

    • Thanks RHM, you are very sweet. Yes, I have had Pinky Swear up on my Browser since it started, but even though I know we will see a HEA, not like the stupid movie ending, I haven’t started it yet. Guess you’ve convinced me I should go there now – damn you!! lol

      And, I love Savage’s writing & UC is on my TBR List – I love historical fics, but haven’t delved into this yet. There’s been some angst about it, have you read her Blog? I know of some people who flounced it for one reason or another; I will definitely read it, but not right now.

      Happy weekend! xx MC

  2. hi all! WP is being kinda fussy today. Don’t let it throw you. Great Post MC!!! As Always!!! I think I’ll turn in soon. so I’ll be back later this afternoon Mwah girls!!!

  3. Well, I was up almost all night finishing all the packing. Schew…I think we are ready. Kindle is loaded and fully charged and fresh music is loaded too.

    MC I had added Outbound to my list too when I read the review at TLS. Sounds interesting.

    I also read the one shot One Night last Sunday. It was goooooood. I really hope that she will continue that story.

    I really have nothing new to report. I am just trying to keep up with my updates that I will miss this week since I will not have internet.

    I am finally getting around to reading Help Wanted by Jaxon22 author of POF. So that is what I will be reading on vacation.

    Have a wonderful week girls. Save some licking for me with Rob on Sunday!!

    • Oh wait….I do have something. Sorry Girls, brain is cloudy with the lack of sleep.

      I rec’d this almost a year ago as a WIP. Completed earlier this year and the sequel has just started. oooooooooooo. I cannot do three links so go to the author page and grab the outtakes too.

      Edward is buried….planted deep into the mafia. Left there and forgotten for many many years. Bella another agent goes in to get him and well the magic begins.

      They told her it was suicide. She didn’t believe them. The mission? Maintain the cover, get inside and extract the targets safely. Simple, right? Bella Swan used to think so… until she met Edward Masen. E/B AH. Sequel/Continuation soon to follow.

      The sequel that just started posting is all EPOV !!!

      Sequel to Camisado. “Don’t trust anybody in this world. Not even yourself.” EPOV E/B AH.
      Twilight – Rated: M – English – Hurt/Comfort/Suspense – Chapters: 2 – Words: 9,235 – Reviews: 121 – Updated: 8-2-11 – Published: 7-31-11 – Edward & Bella

      • Nicole

        Hi bb,

        I have Camisado on my TBR list. As soon as I finish a couple of stories that are getting close to ending…I may have to jump on that one. I fluv Mafia stuff. Even better that she has a sequel to it too.

        I’d love to see EP have a sequel to go with it. I know EP was long and angsty, but I”d still love more on them.

        Have a safe and wonderful trip. Is it just you and your hubs? In any case enjoy and relax and have a nice time together.

      • newyorkkisses

        Camisado sounds great. And it’s complete, yay! Thanks for the rec, rdm, and have a great vacation. 🙂

    • somanywards

      Help Wanted ***** (5 stars) 🙂

      thanks for the recs & have a safe trip.

      • Oh, I’d forgotten about Help Wanted, another famous hot Actorward.
        You’ll enjoy that rdm it’s a great holiday read.

        • Cared & TMM, Hey sweety, been real sick lately, I haven’t forgotten you! i will e-mail you asap. only helping with posting problems on RA. Other than that i haven’t been on line much. Sorry BB…

    • Have a great trip & we’ll chat when you get back! Be safe! xx MC
      Oh & Help Wanted was one of the first Fics I read & it is still one of my most favorite stories; I have actually read it twice. You will not be disappointed.

  4. HI MC and girls!! Thanks for the recs MC – these are both new to me and I have added those to “the list” 🙂

    I have an awesome rec this week – this story kept me up at nights reading, so now I am a little tired! Your Voice is All I Heard by twimamma This story is complete and honestly, I love a lot of the fics I read, but I was obsessed over this one – it was bloody brilliant!! Summary: Bella is hiding from the same past that Edward can’t forget. Soul mates lost. “You don’t understand, Jasper, I can’t let her go. I still feel her.” Love, Loss, Sex, Lies & an unbreakable bond. Rockerward. CANON pairings with LEMON zest. AU/AH E/B

    The only warning I would give to this story is that it has a VERY evil Carlisle – just in case you can’t handle an evil Papa C. The thing that I loved about this story was that it encapsulated the “otherworldly” bond that I always picture E&B to have – these two have a very special love.

    Hope you all have a great weekend! AV oxo

    • newyorkkisses

      Hi Ally! I haven’t been able to make up my mind regarding “Your Voice was all I heard”, so after your rec I’m finally going to go for it, thanks bb! 😉 Loved your description of it, the fics where E & B have a really strong bond are my favorites (The Blessing & The Curse is at the top of that list ;)).

      • Nicole

        OMG>…TB&TC is awesome! I read that when it first started, almost 1.5 years ago…very good. YVWaIH also sounds good. I have just put it on faves.

        • newyorkkisses

          Hi Nicole! I stopped counting how many times I have re-read that fic and it has me hooked every time… 😉

          • Nicole

            LOL…I did that with MOTU, CWAIA, and TMoBS! I’ve thought about re-reading EP, but right now I have like 25-30 stories I’m juggling and playing catchup at my office and home.

            I hadn’t taken a real vacay in over 4 years, so I went out for over 1 month this past time…had a great time, but wow do I have crap to do now! At least I have my own internet which I’m not at another persons mercy. There was construction around there, and they has slower service than I was used to.

            Now I can get back to doing some serious reading and perving again….Wow you don’t realize how cranky you can get without it and your FF fix! 😉

            • newyorkkisses

              Yup, guilty of doing that with MoTU and CW&IA, too. Still have to read TMoBS, my TBR-list is insane. Wow, sounds like you definitely needed a vacation. 4 years without a break? Hope you got to really relax and can go back to enjoying some fic now. 😉 And I know the feeling of getting cranky without fic; I have always liked reading books, but since I got into FF 3 years ago I have been devouring that on a daily basis. And I hate it when I’m so tired that I fall asleep without being able to read before bed. 😉

              • Nicole

                LMAO…You and I sound like we have alot of the same habits.

                Yes I get angry when I can’t read much before I pass out and go to sleep. Sometimes too much work, or too much Vino will do that, and then I feel bad, cause I have so much I want to read and accomplish and I’m a very goal oriented type of person and get angry with myself when I don’t meet my own goals for myself.

                Thanks and yes the Vacay was good and all. I needed some down time from biz and home and all. Just wish the internet had worked better over there.

              • NYK! How are you my love? Now, did I hear you right? You haven’t read TMoBS? OMG, you have to read it!! *Ally is bouncing up and down*

                Honestly, whenever I need a good laugh, I pull it out. And Hockeyward *GAH* – he is my favourite..

                • newyorkkisses

                  Hey Ally, I’m great thank you. How are you? And yes *runs and hides*, I haven’t read TMoBS yet. 😉 But it sounds like just the kind of fic I’d need after I’ve read “The Red Line”. That one is next up on my list.

    • Oh thanks ally & if you like an evil, asshole Papa C you should read Offside by Savage – Excellent story, but C is serious jerk in this one! lol

    • Nicole

      Hi Ally,

      Oh that sounds like a really good story! I will have to check it out bb.

      Thanks for the rec and I hope you and yours are doing well. I think you have very busy too, and hope work is calming down a bit for you. Give your little Viking a hug and kiss from me, and I’ll have to tell you about all the new AU Vino’s I had to drink…*LMAO…Damn so many fine Wines and so little time. LOL, either that or I’d stay plastered 24/7*.

      • Hi Nicole! *Waves madly* Yes, YVWAIH is a wonderful read and even though it is not a mafia story, there is some mafia like stuff happening in it. You will love it, I am sure! The little Viking is here with me now, snuggled against my leg, so I have given him a cuddle from Aunty Nicole 🙂 I am looking forward to hearing all about your new Vino discoveries!! oxo A

    • smittenkitten

      Hi bb!
      GAH, I’ve missed you girlz so much! The rec sounds great!

  5. I repeated the mantra “I will not start any more WIP’s” this morning, over and over, before opening this post. Well MC you did such a good job describing Outbound that I went straight over and started it lol. I have bookmarked The Trip as RobsFan-tasy knows I cannot resist a story featuring an actor Edward such as in Waiting In The Twilight by RFT and Between Ordinary and Extraordinary by BellaScotia. One Night was beautifully written so fingers crossed for a second chapter.

    Thanks robshandmonkey lol, I have been trying to avoid starting Pinkyswear by kharizzmatik. Now after reading the premise and given the fact that I love MBFW, I am going to cave and start yet another WIP. I am already day dreaming about Edward and Bella dancing to The Way You Look Tonight, sigh.

    AllyVera you know that I always enjoy your recs so I will definitely read Your Voice Was All I Heard. You had me at “otherworldly” bond, as I love a fic with an intense love between Edward and Bella.

    I’m going to copy this before posting as this is my second attempt, my first is off with robshandmonkey’s post, having a good time swirling around outerspace.

    Have a good weekend all.

    • My mantra got drunk & passed out, I think cared1! lol I give up, honestly, I keep saying “no more WIPs” & then VOILA I am starting another one. Funny story……when I was reading Updates last night, my daughter asked me how many I actually had on the go, I just shrugged my shoulders & showed her my WIP Folder; & as I ran down through it & it kept going & going she just shook her head & laughed her ass off at me! 🙂

      & you might want to slap me after this, but here’s another Actorward. It is a WIP, but 20 chapters in. Now, I haven’t read this yet, but it came highly Rec’d & has over 7000 reviews so far.
      xx MC

      • MC there’s no such thing as too many Actorwards lol. I just had a quick peek at Fiction Becomes Reality and it does look good.

        Bella is a writer whose most successful book is one she wrote about Edward, her high school crush. Edward is now an A-list actor and has signed on to star in a movie based on Bella’s creation.

        nyk is right about The Tutor, it’s a heartbreakingly beautiful story.

        I have to thank robshandmonkey for nudging Pinky Swear to the top of my list. I am on chapter 5 now and I just love it. I’m sitting in an armchair at home but I feel like I am in the story – I may or may not have been shouting encouragement at Bella to go get her man. Agony Aunt Jake as the gay best friend is priceless. This Tanya may have long hair but I can picture her as Cameron Diaz and Edward is….well, go read it and find out.

      • MC, When Fiction Becomes Reality sounds fabulous! Thanks for that – like the lovely Cared, I have a soft spot for Actorwards.. I know RDM is reading “Help Wanted” at the moment and I think I have read that story at least twice (Gawd, why do I do that when my TBR list is HUGE?.. lol)

        I am with you about WIP’s I often say “no more!!” but then I break.. and lets face it, if I didn’t, I would not have started “Breach” which you rec’d here a couple of weeks ago, and that story is owning my ass…

        • I had just caught up to date with Pinky Swear and as I clicked to close the review window, the update popped up. I was clapping my hands like a demented seal. LOL I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it.

          Breach was a great rec too, it has you wanting to reach out and hug the characters. If you read it you will know what I mean.

  6. somanywards


    Thank you BB for the recs…the one on top almost set me in a tailspin GAH! (the way he kisses her)

    Lovely weekend ladies*

  7. kalaekalae

    Thank you MC… great post,

  8. newyorkkisses

    Hi ladies!
    Those WIPs are all going on the TBR-list, MC. Thank you! This week I read a HS-fic, “The Tutor”. Haven’t read one of those in a while so it was a nice change.
    New student Bella Swan needs to break out of her shy exterior and her guidance counselor has the answer: tutoring. And Bella is too new to know she shouldn’t want to tutor Edward Cullen.
    Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 35 – Words: 167,455 – Reviews: 5727 – Updated: 12-25-10 – Published: 4-18-09 – Bella & Edward – Complete

    Have a great weekend, ladies! 🙂

  9. Nicole

    MC, Nice rec’s here. Funny I read Outbound already when I got the alert, and I read the oneshot. Very good stuff. The Trip I have on Alerts, but haven’t started just yet.

    I was without internet for several days for long periods, so I had to choose between reading updates and email, or perving on pics of the pretty at Tumblr…*seeing I have my Kindle for FF’s, I went online to Tumblr*. Hence, I have to catch up on some updates.

    One new WIP I started…*GAH I’m reading some many right now it isn’t even funny*…

    “The Dom Next Door”…

    AU-Human. Bella adored the older boy next door, Edward, never knowing he was or became a dom. Edward can’t forget the subservient girl next door whom he cannot possibly have…
    Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 19 – Words: 19,773 – Reviews: 454 – Updated: 8-2-11 – Published: 11-17-10 – Bella & Edward

    Too funny that this writer is from where I just came from. She also writes Harry Potter FF’s too. (I also love HP stuff, as that is when I first noticed Rob as Cedric and it has stuck with me ever since then).

    The other new WIP I started is by CaraNo…

    Our Master Love-

    Three bodies, two hearts, and one desire – to stay together. Two subs falling in love, but they won’t ever leave the man who owns their bodies. Edward and Bella need their Master. A story about friendship, love, and BDSM. E-B-J. No angst. EPOV
    Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Friendship – Chapters: 2 – Words: 10,463 – Reviews: 248 – Updated: 8-2-11 – Published: 7-31-11

    What can I say…I’m a sucker for BDSM stories and seek them out.

    May I also add ladies that one of our very own H00RS did a great ONESHOT, that is really GOOD! I’d like to encourage her to write a full blown FF sometime…FluffyLiz, take a bow Girlfriend. Your OS is fuckHAWT and awesome. All the H00Rs will love it…especially if your reading Savage’s story “Offside”…

    What Goes Around Cums Around—
    Offside o/s. As Carlisle once again imposes his control over Edward, he decides to take a little time-out to scratch an itch, which turns out to be a life-changing decision, leaving him with something much worse than an itch. Rated M
    Twilight – Rated: M – English – Drama/Tragedy – Chapters: 1 – Words: 3,914 – Reviews: 12 – Published: 8-3-11 – Carlisle – Complete

  10. Nicole

    MC…I just got a response to my review on Outbound. This is a joint effort with Phoebe and Jamie…*Is this Jamie Arkin? I used to converse and follow an FF author on twitter that had the same name if not, and I believe I follow a JA on Tumblr too. In any case, if this is the same lady…she is very nice and talented*.

    The teaser we just got makes me want more! Great story so far.

  11. caligirl513

    Thanks MC for thr great rec’s. I’ll add them to the never ending list. I have a couple of WIP’s for you. I know you hate another wip but this one is so hottt.
    Hedone Ranch – Stressed out, Bella seizes an opportunity to get away. After being mistaken for her movie-star boss at a “spa”, she finds out her boss has been using her name to keep big secrets. When is a spa not a spa? When it’s a brothel. AH, EXTREME SMUT (OMG this is so hot. Run don’t walk to read this one.)
    The Slowest Burn – 360 : He took my underwear, hung them from his back pocket, then said, “These are mine.” – AH, E/B, Lemons

    • newyorkkisses

      Hey caligirl513, I’ve heard so much about “Hedone Ranch” lately. abcoolie rec’d it to me a few weeks ago and she was raving about it, too. I sooo badly want to read this, I guess I’m going to have another WIP on my list.

  12. caligirl513

    Here is the link for The Slowest Burn.

    One last one Until I saw you. He wants her-she wants him ..both play the age old game of cat and mouse but neither are willing to be the mouse.. a mobward in love and a sassy bella making him work for it…rated M lemons/language /strong subject matter…

  13. smittenkitten

    Hi Gang!

    So many great recs…adding, adding & more adding! I have been MIA for a few weeks, it is so good to see everybody here! I love fic recs…now it looks like fic friday will be my new favorite day! 😉

    Thanks girls!

  14. Dear M/C — I wanna say thank you again for the rec and the kind words, we can’t say it enough. All the love and support we’ve gotten so far is wonderful and we appreciate it all!

    Thank you everyone who has come to check it out and we hope you’ll check out some of our other collaborations.
