FanFiction Fridays – Oldies BUT Goldies – Part 2

Welcome back RA readers, and Happy TGIFF! Today we, AllyVera, Cared and myself, MC, continue our stroll down Twific memory lane, with Part 2 of Oldies BUT Goldies. Now, some of these may have been mentioned in last week’s comments on FanFictionFridays – Oldies BUT Goldies – Part 1, but I am still gonna present the post as originally prepared… ♥

*made by Cared*

AllyVera: Welcome to the second part of “Oldies but Goldies”.  When Cared and I first talked about this post, I think our Facebook Chat and emails were about to blow up with traffic!  We had way too many stories for one post, so I hope you enjoy our second post and we would love to hear what you all think. Enjoy Ladies!

They say you never forget your first, and I don’t think there are truer words.  Sometime in early 2010, I discovered Random Acts of Rob and their Completed TwiFic page and Darkness by cherry.blossomz was at the top of the list and I decided to “take the leap”. I have to say, I was nervous about reading Twilight Fan Fiction, as I couldn’t understand at the time how anyone could do my beloved Edward justice.  I can’t tell you how glad I am I got over that!

Even though I read this story “way back when” it still holds that very special place in my heart – I loved this Edward, he was raw and real (and a musician… bonus!!).   Darkness is a college story, and you meet Bella who is moving from Phoenix to New York State for college, and via a “Freshman Friend” program she meets Alice, who is Edward’s sister – how convenient!  Here is our first glimpse of Edward…

Excerpt from Chapter Three…

“Edward’s voice is amazing. It sounds like honey and sandpaper. It’s sweet and rough… I realize that I’m standing in a house I’ve never been in huddled in the darkness at the bottom of the stairs, eavesdropping on nerdy-bookworm-musician.

But I can’t move.

His voice is… doing something to me.

I feel frozen, entranced.

Just then the music stops and I hear footsteps coming down the stairs.


I look up and see Edward Cullen.

He’s at least six feet tall.

He’s wearing white socks on his feet, faded jeans and a black tee. I notice his muscular forearms, his chest…

This can’t be nerdy-bookworm…

Then I see his face. He has a chiseled jaw, covered in stubble. His hair is brownish bronze, and it’s sticking up in soft tufts all over his head.

His eyes meet mine.

They are bluish-green, and soft… and they are looking right at me.

“Hi.” He says.

“I’m Edward.”

I have to close my gaping mouth. I am completely embarrassed and… dazzled.

Nerdy-bookworm, hot-fantasy man is gorgeous.”

Darkness isn’t all sunshine and roses, Bella and Edward have to work through a few issues, but I really loved the ending of this one and when you get there, you will know what I mean – it is honestly one of the best epilogues I have read.

I am so glad I “popped my fan fic cherry” on Darkness, it is a wonderful story and it introduced me to the fandom I love so much!

Now, I, MC, would like to give you my first Twific, the great-one that popped my fanfiction cherry several years ago…

The List by LauraACullen

Four weeks before her wedding to Edward, Bella is frustrated. She knows there’s little-to-no chance of getting him to bend his rules and boundaries now, but there’s no harm in fantasizing about what could happen later. So she begins compiling a list…

Also, it was the first rec I did here at Rob Attack, June 10, 2011 – Twilight Fan Fiction Rec #1 – absolutely loved this story, the canon Romance/Fantasy of it, and still do!


A special THANK YOU to AllyVera and Cared for all their hard work and creativity in helping to write this post, as well as last week’s. We had so many wonderful Twifics to choose from and we hope you enjoyed our Oldies BUT Goldies lists. Also, thank you to Cared for making the post banners and black headers, and AllyVera for her review of Darkness by cherry.blossomz.

Again, thanks for joining us today, and we’d love to know what you’ve been reading, as well as what popped your fanfiction cherry!

Next week, we will be back to regular FFF programming…one fic rec per week. Hope to see you then!

Midnight Cougar


And, now I have a special treat for you…. 😀

Last week on FanFictionFridays – Oldies BUT Goldies – Part 1, many of you shared your ‘first’ with us; the Twific that popped your fanfic cherry. Gingerandgreen, with her head hanging low, admitted to not remembering the name of her ‘first’.  She did, however, give us a fine description in her comment, including the fact that Edward and Bella had sex on the floor.  Like that would narrow it down much. Pffft!  We then threw down the gauntlet to Name That Fic, and a promise of 7 minutes with an Edward of their choice was made.

Fich00r extraordinaire newyorkkisses correctly guessed “The Woods are Lovely, Dark and Deep”.  Please take a bow nyk.  How true that all the nice girls love a bad boy; newyorkkisses chose 7 minutes of Tattward.

Drum Roll Please…..we proudly present to you, 7 Minutes of Tattward……written for newyorkkisses by the talented Gingerandgreen……take it away boys…..

7 Minutes of Tattward by Gingerandgreen

“I’ll find someone, I swear Jasper. Don’t cut me off.”

“I don’t have a choice, Kid. I am about to go into that meeting, and without a female vocal, you can’t do it, Son. Trust me on this, Edward, it’s better this way. You can try again next year.”

“Okay, what if I have a chick who’ll fill in for Rosalie? I’ll find someone, I swear. Don’t do this to me man, Rose will never forgive herself if you cut us out of the festival now. Give us a chance, Jazz. Please, I’m begging you, Man. This is Edward Fucking Cullen, on his knees.”

The pause nearly kills him. Edward is actually on his knees at this point, cigarette dangling forgotten between his plump lips, phone tucked between his five o’clock shadow and his shoulder, long-fingered hands clasped as though in prayer in front of his bare chest – he has always been prone to dramatics.

Jasper releases a puff of air. This kid is going to be the death of him. “Alright, you have ten minutes. I can’t delay any more than that. Come back to me with a name in ten or you’re out.” He lowers his voice, softening his tone because, goddam, he wants this group to succeed. He’s rarely seen such raw potential. Damn Rosalie Hale for breaking her fucking leg days before the top indie music festival in the North West. “Don’t let me down, Ed. Invoke that guardian angel tattooed on your bicep, you got me? Ten minutes. Clock’s ticking.” He drops the connection.

Edward bends his body right back in relief as he releases his phone and raises his clasped hands in triumph. The back of his head touches the floor, barely straining the taught abs descending into his shorts.

Fuck. Ten minutes. He springs back to his feet lightly, fumbling on the floor for his phone. Finding Bella on his speed dial, he hits call.

Her phone rings once, twice, three times. “C’mon, c’mon, pick up…Bella! Hey, how’s it goin’?”

“Oh, hi Edward. What’s up?”

“Are you in? I’m coming down. Have to chat. ‘S important.” He doesn’t even want to waste time speaking in whole sentences.

Bella laughs. “Okay, just give me a minute to get dressed, yeah?”

Edward’s heart beats a double, and for a second he forgets his urgent mission. His voice lowers, and he licks his bottom lip. “Are you naked, Bella Swan?”

“What? No! I’ve been working out. I’m sweaty.”

“Don’t change a fucking thing, I’ll be right there.”

He grabs his keys, slams the apartment door and leaps the two flights down to Bella’s apartment, but still, three minutes have passed before he gets there. Seven minutes. Shit. Okay then. He lifts his fist and pounds on her door, the noise reverberating through the still live phone connection.

“Crap, Edward, where’s the fire?” Bella pulls the door open and Edward’s eyes sweep over her tight tank and running shorts. Her feet are bare, her red toe-nail polish slightly chipped. There is a healing graze just below her knee, and wisps of hair stick to her sweaty neck.

“Oh Girl, look at you – fucking heaven. Turn around, let me see how your tatt’s healing.” He reaches out to peel the shorts away from her pert ass, but she slaps his hand away.

“Hands off, Ward. You don’t look so bad yourself. Are you coming in?”

He smirks. He knows Bella’s attracted to him. He’s seen the way her eyes slide over his decorated biceps, linger over his firm thighs, and today she can’t peel them off of his happy trail long enough to spot the mischief in his green eyes.

“Nah, we can do this right here. I’ve got – fuck,” he glances at the time on his phone, “Six minutes to convince you of something.”

“Yeah? What’s that?” Expecting him to ask her out on a last minute date, Bella is shocked when the boy falls to his knees at her feet. “What the fuck, Ward?”

 “Bella Swan?”

“I’m not gonna marry you, Boy. Don’t ask me.” She’s laughing at him, but seeing him down there in all his half-naked glory sends tingles of excitement shooting through her spine.

“Babe, do this for me and I’ll marry you if you want. I’ll give you ten babies and a picket fence and a diamond ring, if that’s what floats your boat.”

“Aw, you’d do that for me? Ten babies?” She runs a finger over his sharp jaw. Electricity sparks through the gentle connection, and both feel an echoing awakening in their respective groin areas.

“You know I would Bella. But you gotta agree to say yes to whatever I ask you. I’ve got – fuck, I’ve got four minutes. Say yes, Bella. Whatever I want, Babe. Trust me?” His lopsided smile blinds Bella to reality – after all, how bad can it be, if it nets her this tattooed god kneeling at her feet?

Bella is wet, wet, wet. She can smell the pheromones emanating from Edward. She raises her eyes to heaven and throws caution to the wind. “Okay. I will live to regret this, but yes. I say yes. Now what do you want?”

“Fucking hell, I love you Bella. Yes!” He bends forward to kiss her feet, leaving her with an exquisite view of his muscled and decorated back.

Edward hits dial Jasper on his phone, getting through immediately. “Cutting it fine, Son. Give me a name.”

Edward looks up into Bella’s wary brown eyes. “Isabella Swan, Jazz. Bella has agreed to  perform vocals at the festival on Saturday in place of Rosalie. We are good to go.”

“Hallelujah, Edward. Right, I’ll call you back soon. I’m goin’ in.” He cuts off the phone.

Bella’s mouth is wide open.

“Oh Babe – let me fill that mouth of yours. I am your slave now.” He springs lightly to his feet again, stalking towards Bella as she backs into the wall in her apartment hallway – still speechless. Pressing his hard body against hers, he lowers his head and gently catches her bottom lip between his. “Mmmm – fucking delicious. You’re gonna make me a very happy man, Bella Swan.” ——

    Ok, Gingerandgreen, that 7 minutes of Tattward TOTALLY NEEDS TO BE A FULL LENGTH STORY! LIKE NOW! Please? Pretty please? I’ll get on my knees like Edward did and BEG! Please?

    • I was thinking the same thing last night Shannon, when I was putting the post together; I really do hope GG will continue! 🙂

      • I just wanted to take a minute and say Thank you to MC Cared and AllyVera For working so long and hard to make these past two post! you are wonderful individuals and together you are awesome! Thank You all very much! *HUGS*

        • Thanks RobsFan-tasy, we enjoyed our look back too and reliving old memories. Do you remember your first?

          • Cared indeed i do! how could i forget it? It was the fabulous fifty shades trilogy! it spoiled me i suppose. I loved fifty shades but i do wish i would have STARTED with something else. but i have read a few of these as well like “A creature of habit” loved it. I always read your and MC’s post and have added several to my TBR. trouble is i don’t have a kindle or an e-reader or anything like that. so hopefully they will all stay on line so i will be able to read them in the future. That’s why i collect the PDF’s every time i get the chance. so if ANY of you ladies have a MUST READ on PDF send it to me ladies Please! Thanks again ladies for all you do!

            • Wow RobsFan-tasy, that was a Baptism of Fire! You don’t do things by halves LOL.

              • Nope Darlin I don’t! you knows that! LOL i guess you can even blame it on The Twilight saga as well…

                I hold with those who favor fire…

    Good morning ladies. Happy Friday. Thanks again for all the great recs. I have read several of these, but there are a couple I haven’t that I will be adding to my TBR list. I loved The List as well. It was one of the first ones I read way back when. Another oldie I remember reading was Cabin Fever by coldplaywhore.
    I like pretty much all her stuff anyway. The Dominant series and The Red Line will continue to be up there on my favorite list alongside The Office and MOTU. Those are my go-to stories to reread when nothing else holds my interest. And a special thank you to Gingerandgreen for 7 minutes with Tattward. Perhaps she could spin that little morsel into a ficlet for us Tattward hoors? **on knees begging** What do you say GAG? Pretty please with Rob on top (or bottom), whichever you prefer and if you need a little “picspiration” click to your left and check out RF’s Monday post…sizzling hot. To all of you wonderful ladies I wish you a great weekend. 🙂

    • Good Morning to you too eewee33. I’m glad you like the 7 Minutes of Tattward by the talented Gingerangreen. Maybe we will talk her into more LOL. Thanks for the rec of Cabin Fever. My favourite early Coldplaywhore is A Beautiful Mess from 2009. Have you read that?

      Edward and Bella are best friends who take a chance on love together before she leaves for two months in Europe. Will they be able to survive when she returns and their lives change drastically? Extended Version of o/s London Calling. Rated M

      Tell me eewee33, if you had to recommend one fic to a FanFic Virgin, what would it be?

      • eewee333

        Happy Birthday CARED!! Hope you have a wonderful day. To answer your question for FF Virgins….well, if I can only recommend one, then it would have to be Alphabet Weekends. If I could say more, then I would start them with Lola’s BD trilogy, followed by Tara’s Dominant Trilogy, and then maybe drotruno’s Broken Angel trilogy (I think I like 3’s-it’s my lucky number). Anything by SydneyAlice is worth reading too. 😉

        • Thank you eewee333, I’m having a lovely day. Any friend receiving your recommendations would be a lucky girl indeed, as you have great taste in fic.

  3. Hello Ladies

    MC, the post looks great – thank you so much for putting this together – its a monster 😉

    I thought of another story this week I read way back when that I really enjoyed: I Hate You with an Insurmountable Passion by Crittab Summary: Bella Swan would like to think she truly hates Edward Cullen. Of course, that’s what makes sex with him so damn fun. E/B, All Human, AU. Rated a hard M for Lemons.

    I was a little late starting Wild Child by FluffyLiz (Cared was about to disown me), but I started it this week and HOLY MOLY is it good. If you aren’t reading it girls, you need to. Quite possibly one of the best things I have read, like ever.. Our Liz has quite the grasp of the English language! Right about now she has me sitting on the edge of my seat..

    Thanks so much to GingerandGreen for 7 Minutes of Tattward! Can’t wait to see your opinions on this weeks’ list! Ally xox

  4. Honored ladies, thank you so much for thinking of the dick. 🙂

  5. Hiya, glad you liked Tattward, I had fun writing him – not sure about a continuation, eewee33, but I never say never! I’ve been on holiday this week, well, more like recovery time from work. You’d think I’d get lots done, but between finishing my contribution to Fandom4TwifanG, writing Tattward and reading Alphabet Weekends from last week’s list (that was fun and sweet) I am waaaaaayyyyyy behind on Plight Thee. Eeek. But are you reading Wisp? It’s precious.

    • Hi G&G – thanks for dropping by! I have heard so many great things about Wisp, I must start that soon! A xo

    • Thanks again for Tattward Gingerandgreen. I plan to start Wisp soon as you like it so much. For those you would like to read more from Gingerandgreen, here is her profile for hilarious one-shots and a swoonworthy Lordward in Plight Thee My Troth.

      Hi GG. I’m waiting for you to “complete” PTMT before I read it. I try to stay away from WIP’s because I’ve been left hanging so many times and there are a lot of completes to read anyway. HOWEVER, I would be willing to bend my rule if you would continue “7 minutes”….even if it’s just novella length (like 10 chapters), I’d read it as a WIP and review every chapter!!

      And I think I’m going to have to give up my job so I can read FF all day because my TBR list is beyond a thousand stories now. And that doesn’t include the WIP’s I’m waiting to complete so I can add them!! I think I need therapy….calling Dr. Cullen…

      • Wow eewee333 I’m impressed, you would read 7 Minutes of Tattward as a WiP? I’ll start working on Gingerandgreen straight away LOL.

        I don’t want to give up my job to read fanfic all day, I want my job to be reading fanfic all day – if only that was possible. I’m in need of therapy also, you called on Dr. Cullen so I presume that is Dr. Carlisle Cullen, I’ll page Dr. Edward Cullen for my treatment. Lucky me!

  6. There are a couple of things I needed to add today! First of all – she is going to kill me, but I can’t help myself – today is our beautiful Cared’s Birthday!! So please join me in wishing her “Breithlá shona duit” oh please, I hope I have that right – it is Happy Birthday in Irish 🙂

    Also, the story I would recommend to a Fan Fic Virgin.. I have actually done this a couple of times and I think it depends on what they like. But usually, they are like me and are bits of hOOrs so I have recommended Last Tango in Forks by AwesomeSauce76. Cause let’s face it, it really gets right into the action.. LOL But I also think it is a beautiful story with a deep love.
    I would also recommend pretty much any of Spanglemaker9’s stories or Nolebucgrl’s. A x

    • Oh Ally, you are right, I am going to kill you but not until you have guided me though the outback on Operation Find Roving Rob LOL. Thanks but why did you just say “kiss my arse” in Irish? Only kidding – the translation is correct.

      All those fics and authors you mention are ideal for FanFic Virgins. When I introduced a friend to the fic universe last year, I recommended she start with Pure Revelations by Georgialion. Not just because the authors are friends of mine, but because this fic has a little bit of everything, drama, romance, humour, mystery and suspense. A review of PR is in MC’s library along with plenty of other great recs.

    Thanks yet again, Laideez 😉

    I’ve just added quite a few to my TBR list. As someone so eloquently stated last week, they’d probably be dead before they they got through their TBR list! I feel the same, but I wouldn’t change a thing!


  8. edwardsvamptramp69


    Boob gropes to you!

  9. haystackhair

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARED!!!! big hugs from me and boob gropes from Rob- does that work? LOL! I see alot more stories to add to my already rediculous TBR list. I’m plowing through some of last weeks recs- read Facebook Friends- LOVED IT! GAH! So many more to go! And 7 minutes of Tattward was all kinds of win! More! More! Please??

    • Thanks haystackhair, that works for me fine LOL. I’m glad we have some new ones for you this week and I loved Facebook Friends too. Feel free to leave some more suggestions if you have any.

  10. Thank you for featuring Elemental as one of your “Oldies but Goodies!”

    To think, this was the story that was my first in many ways. I was just trying to learn how to tell a story and work on my grammar. I never imagined anything beyond that, and to see it loved gives me such an amazing feeling.

    Thank you again for the love!

    xoxo TB

  11. So many memories this week brings me… I do wonder what happened with some of the authors. *hugs*

  12. Thanks MC, love the Birthday Greetings. Tongue Peeking Out Rob FTW! Now where did I leave that ice-cream?

    We’ve had great fun working together on this post, so thanks for that too.

    Happy Robhaze weekend all.

  13. ‘Kay, I’ll tell you what – if you are all still interested in Tattward when I’ve finished PTMT, and if you are prepared to help me, I’ll write more of the boy. I’ve only been to Seattle once, and it was a disaster, so if you want me to write a whole story set there, it’s going to have to be a bit interactive!

    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARED! I’d send you real champagne courtesy of Lordward if I could.

    • I’m thrilled by the reaction to 7 Minutes Of Tattward, you were so great to do this for us. Thank You. I’d love for you to continue this, Black Books gives us the visual on a plate.

      Thanks for the Birthday Greetings and call.

  14. newyorkkisses

    OMG, Ginger!!! Wow, that was amazing, thank you so much! I thought we had just been joking around last week and then I open this site on my phone and see this, *squeee*. 🙂 (I actually squeed in public when I saw it, lol) You’ve made me a happy happy girl, love this Tattward. And I agree with everybody, this has all the potential of a full-length fic, bb. Mwah!

    Happy birthday, Cared! Hope you have an amazing day and loads of fun celebrating. May all your Rob-dreams come true. 🙂

    Thanks for this fun post, ladies. Like last week, I found some fics I haven’t read yet so I’m downloading these gems straight to my Kindle.

    This past week I haven’t had much time to read, but I did finish last week’s rec “Goodnight, Noises Everywhere”. I enjoyed it as the setting was so unique and it kept you guessing what could happen next. At the same time, I shed a few tears at times for B’s and E’s situation and at the end (non-HEA, which I knew about going in and I understand that it’s the only way this fic should/ could end) I was left sniffing and needed some instant fluff to cheer me up again. What a scary world the author created. I unfortunately can’t post a link to the fic as I’m not at home and on my phone, but it’s in last week’s FF-post. 🙂

    Have a great weekend, ladies!

    • *Waves to newyorkkisses like a looney.* How does it feel knowing you have a story written just for you? I squeed when Gingerandgreen sent me the word doc so I can imagine your reaction LOL.

      I’m glad you found some new fics NYK and that you enjoyed Goodnight, Noises Everywhere. As you say, it’s unique.

      Have a great weekend yourself NYK.

      • haystackhair

        Ok Cared and NYK, I am going to put my big girl panties on and try that story. You have both convinced me it is worth the read. Wuss diving in! I started reading Darkness today, and realized I already read it, but can’t remember the end (may have been a WIP when I read?) so imma finish it tonight!

  15. miniaturemom12

    Ok! I got on! Thanks for posting some of these, they are definitely new to me.
    I just have 3 today and I think I’m cheating. Sorry.

    This is less than a year old. Does that still count?

    This is my FAVORITE one shot…. 😀

    Ummm this is older, complete, but updated last month for some reason… Dark but very good!

    Enjoy ladies!

    • edwardsvamptramp69

      Lions Eat Lambs is one my favorites! I love a good Darkward. 🙂

    • Hi miniaturemon12! Thanks so much for your recs.. I love Of Kith and Kin too – I think we can slot it in the Oldies category! The One Shot is new to me and even though Cared, MC and I didn’t chat about One Shots, I still think they are hugely important – some of the most beautiful stories I have read have been one shots.

      I have always wondered, is Lions Eat Lambs a HEA? Thanks again! A xox

      • miniaturemom12, I love a good one shot, thanks for that. I see it’s an Age of Edward 2010 entry with a gorgeous ffn visual, so that’s even better.

    • Thanks for the Astarsaga rec miniaturemom12! Your comment made my day. Thanks Cared for the heads up and a very happy birthday to you too! 🙂

      • Hi deb24601, it’s nice to see you here. Thanks for the birthday greetings.

        deb is also the author of the enjoyable and quite unique story ‘1929’.

        In 1918 Edward survives the Spanish Flu only to find his world forever altered. He goes on, playing piano in a speakeasy during Prohibiton, struggling to find meaning in life. Meeting Dream Girl gives him hope. He gives her a new take on “life”. Not A/H

    • eewee333

      Thanks miniaturemom12 for reccing Lions Eat Lambs. What a Darkward. I couldn’t stop reading it once I started. Reminded me of Brattyvamps “Toye” and Carano’s “Bloody Kisses”. I do love a good Darkward once in a while. 😉

      • edwardsvamptramp69

        Yes, “Toye” is THE ultimate Darkward and probably one of my all time favorite stories. *sigh* It’s a shame it didn’t have nearly the number of reviews it should have. 😦 Thanks for mentioning that one.

  16. smittenkitten

    Happy Birthday, Cared!


  18. rita01tx

    Oh, damn! I’m late to your BIRTHDAY PARTY on FFF, Cared darlin’!!!
    {very bad Rita!}

    My very great compliments to MC, Cared and AllyVera for the absolutely fabulous “Oldies But Goodies” posts…I’ve read a lot of them, but, sadly {or not?} I still need to read the rest! Good thing I’m retiring in a few months LOL!

    • Hi Rita! Lovely to see you! We would love to hear what story you would recommend to a Fan Fic Virgin – you will have to let us know what was your “Cherry Popper” too 🙂 A xox

      • rita01tx

        I’ve probably told this story before, but way back when I was lurkin’ on RAoR, I kept seein’ you all referring to MotU and wondered what the hell you were talkin’ about? And what was fan fiction? Never heard of it! Then, I think it was Robs~FanTasy {she swears it was} asked for an explanation and someone gave us the link! Oh yeah! MotU was my “Cherry Popper” and I haven’t looked back since LMAO!!!
        Wide Awake was next..then Clipped Wings & Inked Armor and so so many more!
        If I had to rec one for a FF virgin? Emancipation Proclamation!!!!

        • Oh yes Rita, you are another one that started in style. What a list! Things happened the opposite way around for me, I googled fanfiction as I heard Rob mention it in an interview, and that brought me to RAoR. EP for a FF Virgin – what a fabulous choice. Thanks.

  19. christa64c

    This post was a godsend. I just finished a story and was at a loss at what to start next. I’ve read most of what you listed but found three that I’m really excited to start! Thanks guys and keep up the great work!!

    • Thanks christa64c, that’s great that you found some unread stories. Check out last week’s post for Oldies But Goldies Part 1 and you may find some more gems.

      Happy Sinday!

  20. ilovealion

    I’m so late getting to this post, but I wanted to say thanks to all you ladies who keep us updated on the fics (old and new).

    We appreciate all the time and effort it takes to put together such an extensive post.


  21. ilovealion

    Oh- I forgot to mention Tattward. Oh yeah- that’s a great beginning for a fic, G&G. Neighbors who have pined from afar. Now, they’ll be forced to be around each other (at least until Rosalie heals). Oh, can you just feel the tension between Rose and Bella when the crew likes Bella’s voice better than hers?!? Lol

    Need more Tattella!! Please.

  22. exaltada

    Ooops, happy birthday, Cared… as we say in my country, mejor tarde que nunca (better later than never ;)). Hope you enjoyed your day, and enjoy all this new year in your life!
    Thanks a lot for MC for all these recs, I´ll save this link in my favorites. My cherry popping in English fanfics (I read a lot of Spanish fics before it) was, as I wrote, The submissive. But my favorite fic of all times was MOTU. I still feel a strange feeling of possession about Fifty, and when I see everybody talking about FSoG and buses running the streets of my city (Barcelona) with ads of this book… I feel odd about it…;)
    Now the fic wich is stealing my sleep is another goldie: The Blessing and the Curse. I definitely LOVE it.
    Thanks for sharing these works of art!
