So, first I have to tell you’ll this little story: Last week I took an Oath to myself, “Thou shalt not start any new WIPs this week.” because I already had close to 50 on the go *don’t judge* – so, anyways, I repeated this mantra, many times, over the weekend; my intentions were completely just and honest, and I tried so hard not to break my Oath, but the Recs just kept coming and coming, and now I must confess that I totally sent my Oath to Hell in a hand-basket, as I failed miserably and I started 6 new WIPs this week! *hangs head in shame* Oh well, I tried right? and on the bright side, they all look great and I am not taking any more Oaths – I’m just gonna read and drink my homemade wine! 🙂
Okay, now down to business…..first I am going to Rec an Actorward *yes, I know, you’re shocked* Not only is Edward an actor in this Fic, but he speaks sexy Italian *SWOON* This Complete story is called No way to say goodbye by the talented writer Rob’s hand monkey. I loved reading this story, it is short and sweet, but full of romance, a little angst and some smokin’-hot lemony goodness *fans self and vajayjay*!
Bella and Edward grew up next-door to each other, best-friends for 18 years, but now they are both leaving to pursue their dream jobs – Edward goes to Hollywood to be an actor, while Bella goes to New York to work on the Stock Exchange. But, before she leaves, the Cullens, her extended family, throw her a going away party, and as Edward watches the festivities, what does he realize? How does he feel about losing his best-friend? What will happen when Edward and Bella say goodbye, in private, after the party? And, how will these best-friends deal with living so far apart? All these questions and more, will be answered when you read this awesome 17 chapter Fic!
Summary for No way to say goodbye: “Two life long friends moving to opposite coasts to follow different career paths. How will they fair for the first time without each other? Edwards POV A/H angst and drama in the beginning but a HEA is guaranteed.

But, before this happens, I must give you a tissue warning, this story starts out with some serious angst (see Summary below for details.) I have never cried so hard, when reading a Fic, that I had to stop reading chapter 2 and take a breather. This all happens before Edward Masen makes his appearance, when the storyline and plot are being set, but W-O-W, it is so well-written that I was completely blown away by the powerful feelings this author evoked in me, so early in the storyline. Excellent start!
So, as of today, we have a Prologue and 3 chapters, with updates expected every other Sunday, although the last update was 25/07/11 (author is pregnant); but 3 days ago the author replied to my reviews saying a new chapter should be up any day now. Hopefully we will soon get an update because I really think this little gem has great potential and is going to turn out to be a fantastic read!
Summary for Shine Your Light: “When Bella Black loses her husband in a tragic accident, she loses her way. Can Edward Masen, a newcomer to Forks, help her find her way back? A/H – Contains firefighterward and a boatload of angst.

Another WIP I started this week is called Search and Rescue by kitkat681. I was immediately drawn into this interesting premise of a story, as Bella belongs to a special search and rescue team, with her dog Jake, who is her partner, and her best-friend Rose, as her Team Leader. When Rosalie convinces Bella to go home with her and spend Easter with Rose’s family, this is where she meets Rose’s brother, Edward (aka Lensward), and it appears he will be doing some of his own rescuing.
It appears this story will follow multiple plots/storylines, which are all in development. From what I have observed in these first 4 chapters, I believe Search and Rescue has great potential to be a complex and well-rounded FanFic; it’s well worth a read!
“A/N: So…what to expect with this one. Angst, action, drama, romance…more angst…lemons eventually…and more action. This will be AH/OOC/Bella and Edward pairing. I will be posting once a week…on Saturdays…… Cause I know you really want to get to know Bella. There will also be a big chance for you to direct where the story goes, not for Bella and Edward but for another pairing in the story. I’ll let you know when that happens.” – kitkat681.
Summary for Search and Rescue: “Bella is in an elite search and rescue team, trying to forget the one person she could not save. Edward is trying to forget his past by being a photographer in the middle of a war zone. Can they forgive themselves before everything comes crashing down?
