Coming Home ~ School teacher Bella sends a care package and letter to Army sergeant Edward, who is stationed in Afghanistan. They begin a relationship through letters, phone calls, and video chats.

I remain, Yours ~ Bella is unexpectedly given an antique desk that once belonged to Edward, and in it she finds a letter he wrote to his cousin in 1918.

Rob Attack ~ The Golden Onion Award ~ 2012
And, last but not least, to complete our winning list for 2012, we now have a special award to present… our Rob Attack ~ The Golden Onion Award ~ 2012.
Last year on Rob Attack ~ FanFiction Fridays Best of 2011 List, our Golden Onion Award winner was Fridays at Noon by troublefollows1017 ~ chosen from all the nominees as the best overall complete fic of 2011.
This year the award goes to a fic that we ~ Midnight Cougar, Cared and AllyVera ~ chose as our overall favourite complete fanfiction from all the 2012 nominees. It is a story that truly was a pleasure to read from start to finish as it is beautifully written, contains an intricate plot, has wonderfully engaging characters, and obviously was thoroughly researched. It has everything you want in a story ~ such an incredibly well-rounded historical fic, depicting life in the 18th Century ~ that special love between Edward and Bella, the characters, the plot, the writing, the presentation of everything all neatly comes together to provide one compelling fanfiction to read. The author shows the reader many complex elements throughout the story; no matter the date, the important things in life, the problems, humans deep-down, their social issues and so on, never change. It was apparent, when reading, that great care and precision was taken in the deliverance of the story to make sure the reader received the best that the author could offer through her story. It was definitely one of our all-time favourites of 2012 and, after very careful consideration and much discussion, we ~ Midnight Cougar, Cared and AllyVera ~ present our Rob Attack ~ FanFiction Fridays ~ The Golden Onion Award ~ 2012 to… *drum roll please*
Plight Thee My Troth ~ England, 1795. Lord Edward Masen and Miss Isabella Swan promise to love one another for all time; but will the harsh realities of life allow two souls from very different backgrounds to fulfil their vows? EPOV, AH
Twilight – Rated: M – English – Drama/Romance – Chapters: 29 – Words: 160,023 – Reviews: 3329 – Updated: 9-16-12 – Published: 9-4-11 – Edward & Bella – Complete
*ACKNOWLEDGMENT: The original idea for this award and the banner, were both created and made by Cared.*
Well, there you have it, my friends, all of our Rob Attack ~ FanFiction Fridays Best Rec’d of 2012 Winners! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS! Thank you to all who voted, for joining us today and for all the support and comments all through our 2012 year of FanFiction Fridays here at Rob Attack.
I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Cared and AllyVera, who have been the best friends and invaluable teammates that I could have ever asked for to help me with FanFiction Fridays. I know thank you does not begin to cover how grateful I am to them, and I’m not sure I could tell you all that they have done for me, but to summarize for this post: Cared made all the RA banners for the winners and helped create the post, while AllyVera set up all the voting polls and tallied the winners for us, and also helped create the post. ♥
On a more personal note, this marks my last post of my second year as creator and author for FanFiction Fridays. I still find it difficult to believe that I have been doing this for almost two years. It has been one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. The beautiful friendships I have found, the excellent stories I have read, and the unique family we have all created here is amazing, and I want to thank you all for joining me each week. ♥
If you all remember, back on December 7, 2012 ~ FanFiction Fridays ~ Announcement ~ RA’s FicSix ~ I made the announcement that I am going to be taking a much-needed break from blogging to focus on RL, and that we have created a FanFiction Fridays TEAM ~ RA’s FicSix ~ Cared, AllyVera, Ilovealion, Gingerandgreen, Wiltshire Glo and myself. As the FicSix team we will take turns sharing the pleasure of writing reviews/recs of our favourite Twifics to continue to bring you a FanFiction Fridays post each week. Therefore, RA’s FicSix will come into effect starting next week, the first FanFiction Fridays post of 2013 ~ Friday, January 4th. Please join us then for the beginning of a new and exciting FanFiction Fridays!
On a final note, I’d like to wish you all a SAFE, PROSPEROUS and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013! *cheers*
