Since it’s the last FanFiction Friday in RA’s October Horror Month, this week I will be recing 1 Horror and 1 Supernatural, and RA’s Boss, RobsFan~tasy, will rec 1 Supernatural. It’s gonna be a scary week here on FFF! *shivers*
So, let’s get started with our first rec of the week by RobsFan~tasy…..
This is my first official FF rec ever! It’s a little story I heard about several months ago and it stuck with me so much, kept calling my name so often that I finally had to break down and read it. It’s called Across the Universes by FantasyMother.
This story is complete at 20 chapters, including a future-take, and it will grab your interest and attention in the first few lines. I love unusual, paranormal type stories and this one does not disappoint.
The story begins with a human Edward and Alice shopping in a bookstore, where they discover an old and tattered leather-bound Journal. It seems like an antique and Edward falls in love with it, yet the pages are crisp, white and pristine. Not at all what you would expect for an antique Journal. From the moment he begins to write in the Journal it begins to change and with every change in the journal there is an odd change in him as well. Then, in a parallel universe, a vampire Edward buys the same journal and discovers that each time he writes in the Journal there are new, unexplainable additions to the Journal and even stranger changes in him. When the two Edwards discover they can communicate with one another through the journal, the story grabs you and refuses to let go. Will their parallel lives collide? Will Vampire Edward abandon his human half in an Alternate Universe to suffer alone?
I love the struggle these two Edwards and Isabellas have to endure and the fact that Human and Vampire Edward both worry for their counterpart’s Bella’s. When this story ends you will discover a unique ending that leads to a myriad of possibilities; in fact, if you like where this story leaves off as much as I did, there’s a sequel that began in January, Collapse the Universes.
My only criticism of this story would be that it ended too soon! It could have carried on for ages and kept you bouncing on the edge of your seat for months instead of days. Maybe the sequel will keep us spellbound much longer. This story is like nothing I have ever read before and I hope you will give it a chance.
Summary for Across the Universes: “Not all is as it seems when Edwards from two different universes find an old journal that can bridge the gap between them. Things become even stranger when the reality of one universe starts to bleed into the other. AU, B & E Rated M for Lemons.

Ok MC, Back to you, the Master Fic Rec Queen. Thanks: RobsFan~tasy.
The first chapter of The Curse of the Swan was just posted this past Wed. Oct. 26/11, and the intended update schedule will be once a week; every Wednesday.
The story is labeled Supernatural/Romance and in chapter 1 we learn that when Bella’s mother, Renee Swan gave birth to her on a cliff, Bella was immediately cursed, and that she “…had lived with her Aunt Esme and her daughter in Salem since she was just a baby. Her mother had died during childbirth and no one knew who her father was. She always felt that something was missing inside of her when she saw her cousin with her mother. She knew she was loved, her Aunt made sure of that, but she could feel deep in her soul that there was something more that was just out of her reach.”
While Alice and Bella are browsing in an antique store, Bella discovers “…a navy blue book that had a beautiful pentagram covering most of the front.” She learns that this special book is actually a Book of Shadows – a journal of sorts – used to keep track of spells and rituals, and also that her Mom, her Aunt Esme, Alice and herself are actually White Witches.
Do not fear, this is a Bella and Edward TwiFic, and since we haven’t met Edward yet, I interviewed the author, kitkat681, to get some additional information regarding the storyline.
I learned that Edward is NOT a Vamp in this story, but in chapter 2, that will be posted next week, so far we STILL will not know his name. Esme will explain everything to Bella, but they don’t remember Edward’s name since the original curse happened over 200 years ago. When we meet him in chapter 2, we also discover that he was a human, but that when Bella was cursed, he was also cursed – he has his curse tattooed on his ribs! Tattward! Here is a Curse Teaser from chapter 2:
Eternal night Eternal day
Until the rite has given way.
The key to all’s the graceful bird
The only one your heart has heard
She continues to fade away
And death will take her where she lays
You’re living proof
That all is lost
When love’s exhaust.
For all that you have done to me
As is my will…so mote it be.
I am anxious to follow this new Supernatural/Romance fic. kitkat681 has presented us with an interesting and original storyline that will be full of Witches, Witchcraft and Wicca, Spells and Rituals, and I have complete faith that The Curse of the Swan will turn out to be another one of her epic tales!
Summary for The Curse of the Swan: “Bella Swan lives her life completely unaware that her time on this Earth is slowly counting down. A chance discovery opens her eyes to a history she never knew about. Will she be able to break the spell that has cursed her family for centuries?

My last Halloween rec is a true Horror fic called I’m a Doctor by the talented author, texasbella. This story is written in Drabble format, and at 53 chapters and an Epilogue, it is complete, well-written and VERY CREEPY!!
I read this story as a WIP and let me tell you it is one of the best Horror fics I have ever read! I was so creeped out, I literally *shivered* when reading it; it is definitely the perfect FanFiction rec to end RA’s Horror Month.
I’m a Doctor is labeled as a Horror Edward fic, and even though we do get BPOV from chapter 37 and beyond, the story really is centered around Edward’s manic activities, his bizarre mannerisms and absurd grip on reality. This Horror fic is not for the faint at heart, it deals with “Crackedward”, who also got dubbed, by many of us readers as the story progressed, as “Pyschoward, Freakshoward, Dr. Dark and scarWard, Seedward, Expelward, Shaveward, Reepward, Creepward, Dr. EVILward, Twisted Darkward…it all boils down to the boy is CRACKED! “
Edward is obviously a Doctor, but in the loosest sense of the word. After a devastating loss, he loses all grip on reality and goes to disturbingly extreme measures to right his discombobulated life. There are no words to explain his manic thought processes, but I can guarantee you will be freaked-out as you try to wrap your head around his incredible mind and his horrific activities. I have never read such a unique and creepy Edward! He is truly captivating! If you want to read a true Halloween Horror fic then please give I’m a Doctor a chance, you will not be disappointed!
I was a doctor.
I should have been able to save them.
My sweet daughter dead on arrival.
My beautiful Bella lost to a madness from which she couldn’t escape.
I will make it right.
I will bring us peace.
I have a plan.
Summary for I’m a Doctor: “DRABBLE How does a man cope when his world crumbles around him and he thinks he’s lost everything? What lengths will he go to in order to find happiness? Dark, disturbing, not for the feint of heart. M for lang/lemons.
