This week I read an oldie but goodie called Scotch, Gin and The New Girl by wtvoc and jandco. It is quite a raw teenager-based story and I lmao many times. Edward, Emmett, Rose, Alice and Jasper are all living very privileged lives in Forks, while attending the private school, Forks Academy, but their little circle of crazy high-school normalcy is thrown into a tailspin when Bella, the new girl, comes to town. Edward often acts like a complete teenaged ass and has a lot of growing up to do throughout this story, while Bella is a strong-willed, take no shit kind of girl; I loved her portrayal in this Fic.

Another Complete FanFic I recently read is called Matchmaker by All you need is Moz. This is a cool story, a very different storyline; it not only involves Edward and Bella, but Bella’s 17-year-old daughter, Ness. The story is told from all three POVs, which I found very refreshing and informative. Ness is a mature 17 yr old teenager who just wants the best for her mother, Bella, who was only 17 when she had her and has dedicated her whole life to providing a good life for her daughter. When Forks High School gets a new Calculus teacher, named Mr. Cullen, Ness decides to play Matchmaker. A great read, I really enjoyed this story.
Summary of Matchmaker: “Ness thinks her mom needs a man in her life, and she has the perfect candidate in mind – her new teacher, Mr Cullen.

There is also a great little Outtake for Matchmaker called Naked in Newtons – “An outtake from the story Matchmaker. A bit of fun! Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Humor – Chapters: 1 – Words: 2,030 – Reviews: 3 – Published: 5-17-11 – Bella & Edward – Complete”
I’m going to add a One Shot I read last week because it was GOOD and we have CoastGuardward, which was a new kind of Edward for me. It’s called Anchor My Heart by TwoTwiMoms. Bella works at an Aquarium as a Marine Scientist and through her co-worker Angela and her boyfriend, she meets Coast Guard Edward! It’s a gentle romance and I think you’ll enjoy this sweet O/S.
Summary for Anchor My Heart: “Our entry in For the Love of a Man in Uniform Contest-After a devastating end to a relationship, Bella vows to never date another man in the Military. Can a handsome U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant change her mind? Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance – Chapters: 1 – Words: 11,036 – Reviews: 13 – Published: 7-31-11 – Edward & Bella – Complete”
I am going to Rec a new WIP *ducks for cover* 🙂 I started yesterday, only 1 chapter so far. A new Actorward, which is my favorite Edward. I was Rec’d it last night and I read it right away; I really think it has great potential. It’s called Give A Little by The Little Wise Owl; whom I believe is a first time author. There is no set updating schedule, but the author informed me that she hopes for at least weekly updates.
It was a pleasure to read and I was captivated right from the get-go. The characters are a bit unique – Renee is a Prosecuting Attorney who is married to Phil, the kid’s step-father, as their father passed away. Bella is an uncertain 21 yr old College student, who grew up on their family farm, with her younger sister Alice and brother, Emmett – who is a “free-spirit” and now lives in LA. While home from College for Thanksgiving, Bella meets Emmett’s LA friend, he brings home to the farm for the holiday, English actor Edward Cullen. Will she allow herself the time to get to know Edward and if so, will her life ever be the same?
Summary for Give A Little: “Bella, oppressed by her family’s expectations of her, has spent her lifetime playing it safe. Edward, Hollywood actor, has never been afraid of taking a risk. This is a story of what happens when two people, with two different lifestyles, meet. Rated M.
