A huge thank you to our readers for getting behind their favourite fics and voting!


The Golden Onion

Our regular readers will know that for the last few years we have celebrated the end of the year with choosing our personal favourite completed story here at Fan Fiction Fridays.  We make a short list of stories that have held each of our hearts throughout the year and then choose the story that held our hearts the most.  The things we look for are simple, a story that captures our imagination, characters we can fall in love with, the love connection between Edward and Bella that we feel is so important and that element of magic that makes us keep reading and reading (or if it is a WIP when you read it, makes you pounce on the new chapters like a thirsting woman in the desert!).

This year we have chosen The Cullen Legacy by pattyrose.  This story was a firm favourite of ours from the first chapter onwards.  The riveting first chapter that was set in present time threw all these questions at us, and then how we gradually learnt Edward and Bella’s history and heartbreak.  This story has everything we look for in Fan Fiction – wonderfully written, exceptional plot, fabulous characters.  Cared and AllyVera reviewed this story way back in April and it was the first story wrote a co-review on – we loved it that much!  You can read our review here.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank pattyrose for sharing this little piece of reading heaven with us!



A Personal Note From Five of TheFicSix…

This year of the FicSix would never have happened if it wasn’t for Cared Cullen. She has been our heart, our guiding light, and in so many ways, our visionary.  We hope the authors she has helped to promote and the readers who have discovered treasures through her passion will join us in a heartfelt round of cheering, applause and the raising of glasses to our dear friend Cared.
Carries Banner 3

We love you, Cared!!


IMPORTANT NEWS: It has been a great privilege to all six of us to share the stories we read and loved every Friday without fail through the entirety of 2013. The time has come, though, for us to rest our keyboards. We won’t be posting another FanFiction Friday on Rob Attack. We will still be active individually in the Fandom, but sadly no longer here as the FicSix – although we are still the best of friends, and hope that you will remain our friends too. Seek us out wherever you can find us. We will always look back on this time spent with you in this small sector of the Twilight universe as a very happy one. In Meyer’s words, “No matter how perfect the day is, it always has to end.” Thank you all for sharing our perfect Fridays. The FicSix ~ AllyVera, Cared, Gingerandgreen, ilovealion, Midnight Cougar, Wiltshire Glo.

  1. edwardsvamptramp69


    I’m bawling my eyes out right now! All of my favorite Twilight blogs are ending. I understand that all good things must come to an end, but I’ve come to rely on you SO MUCH for FF recc’s and Rob Porn. I feel like a junkie who’s lost their supplier.:(

    I appreciate all that you have done for the fandom over the years and I wish nothing but love and support to all of you in the coming New Year. I’ll always hold you dear to my heart. You’ll always feel like my second family.

    I’ll miss you, Ladies!


  2. Thank you for those very sweet words Paula…they mean a lot to us here on FanFiction Fridays. Just to be clear, it is the FIcSix who will no longer be posting here.

    Best wishes to you for 2014!

    • Thanks so much Paula, such a lovely message! We will miss posting, we have had such fun – its always fun to talk and write about your favourite things 😀 Thank you for being an avid reader and supporter.

  3. My dearest FicSix cohorts, you use the word ‘eloquent’ in your too kind description of me, but at the moment in time I’m lost for the words to adequately express myself. I will simply say thank you from the bottom of my heart…each of you carries the reasons deep inside your own.

  4. ClaireBamboozle

    Hi ladies, I know that the FFF posts are a lot of work and all good things must come to an end, but I will surely miss your wit, wisdom and of course the wonderful reviews. (I would like to say thanks again for reviewing my own little fic along the way. )
    It feels like the end of an era, this was definitely my favorite Rob/fan fic blogs and without it I would not have found my Beta and on line besties RF, Rita, Cared and EwWee.
    Oh, it feels so sad, like losing a friend. *sniffle*
    Best wishes to you all in everything you do in the future and I will hope our paths will cross again someday.
    Cyber hugs to you all,
    Claire xxx

    • Hi Claire, your kind words are so lovely and thank you so much for being such a supporter of ours.

      I look forward to reading your stories, now that I am in my last weeks of pregnancy, I have a great reason to stay in one place and read!! *bigsmooshyhugs* AV x

      • ClaireBamboozle

        Aww, thanks hun, just make sure to say “Hi” when you do, and best of luck for the birth, I’m keeping my fingers crossed it will be so quick you don’t feel a thing LOL.

  5. ClaireBamboozle

    Just re read my comments and I did make it sound like the whole blog was closing down which of course it isn’t. I will of course keep an eye open for the Random Ritas and RF RobPorn posts. It’s just sad to not have our weekly get together for the gathering of the fresh fic recs any more.

  6. gingerandgreen

    Re-reading the post and seeing the comments above has made me lose all my composure. I just want to add that we haven’t lost our passion for sharing Twific by any means; it’s life and circumstance that has intervened. It’s been an incredible year, and we will miss you all as much as you miss us.
    Much love, Gingerandgreen

  7. bellatesoro

    I don’t comment very much but that doesn’t mean I haven’t valued all your
    hard work and effort that goes into your posts. I will miss those of you that
    are leaving, you’ve added such interesting adventures to seek out and read for me. Best of luck to you and I hope somehow I’ll bump into you along the way.
    For those of you still manning the station here, all I can say is thank goodness you will continue to bring us continued fun and the what’s what in
    Rob goodness and fantastic reads to be had.
    So if I don’t say it enough; I’m glad you’re HERE and your hard work does not go unnoticed and appreciated.

  8. It’s so sad to hear that the brilliant FFF posts have come to an end, although I totally understand, as I know, from personal experience, just how difficult it is to churn out great recs week after week. I know I have RA to thank for boosting my readership following the incredible reviews of my stories by Midnight Cougar and Cared. And then, of course, there have been the absolutely wonderful fics I’ve been introduced to via all your brilliant recs, and I’m not sure where I will go in future.

    I’m sorry I didn’t comment very often, but please know that I really valued your opinions on what was good – with so many Twilight fics out there, a huge amount of it less than stellar, FFF has been such a fantastic service. Thank you, ladies, for all your hard work and dedication, it’s been a joy.

  9. It is feeling a little surreal for me at the moment that it is our last post… but I wanted to say a very special thank you to all our readers who have been with us all this time – it means so much!

    We have had a ball over the last year or so and we hope that we have extended our readers “To Be Read” lists so they are just a little bit longer. I know mine is longer than I can see.. LOL

    Very very soon I will have my hands full with a newborn baby, so please think of me ladies, while I am changing nappies and trying to sneak sleep 😀

    Thanks has to go to my fellow FicSix members – they are the most amazing women – it has truly been an honour to “work” with them! AV xox

  10. Noooooo Say it isn’t so?? I’m going to miss you gals so hard. Thank you to everyone that voted for Deviant and Channel Five, without the support of Rob Attack they might not be as popular as they are. All the best ladies…..

    • Thank you Planetblue for your contribution as a guest reviewer and as a supporter of FFF.

      Congratulations on your well deserved wins for your fabulous stories!

      Happy 2014 to you!

  11. Ficsix…love you all. I can’t believe RobAttack is coming to an end. You’ve all been so great to me and to all the wonderful authors and readers in the fandom. We’ll still talk on fb but we’ll all miss this blog. Thanks so much for this and for all the times you’ve all rec’d my little stories. And the Golden Onion…I’m holding it in my hands right now, with tears in my eyes. (And not because it’s an onion). Thanks for letting me be a guest reviewer, and thanks for your support. Love you all.

    • Sweet Pattyrose, thanks for your support of FFF and for joining us as a guest reviewer. Thanks too for the wonderful fics you so generously share.

      We have huge love here for The Cullen Legacy as it embodies everything we love about fanfic. I hope the Golden Onion will have pride of place on your mantlepiece. 🙂

      Wishing you a happy 2014!

  12. Wow ladies. I will miss you all dearly. Thank you for all of the great recs. and ending on a high note. xxoo

  13. noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! 😦
    please, reconsider it! you were my friday highlight!
    thank you for all you have done, it was a good, brilliant job! ❤
    I'll miss you! love forever!

  14. OMG, I was so excited to click the link to see the amazing winners and what stories I really must read…if I hadn’t read them, and then i read the crazy blue writing! WHAT??? Nooooooo! I love the FicSix and FFF. Seriously, the damage you girls have done to my TBR list. It never ever fails to grow after one of your posts. Wow, it’s a shame but I totally understand. The fandom has a way of sucking up way too much time sometimes.

    Well, I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Really, you all have been so supportive of my writing on so many occasions and I can’t say what that means to me. No words! If I could only pick one group in the fandom to be able to have a drink with in RL, it would be you girls! *raises glass now to you all*

    Thank you so much again. You should all stand proud of the amazing space you have created here. Good luck, AV. I wish you all the best with your little one.

  15. I’m so sad at this news, though I understand you all have busy lives and keeping up a site like this is a job unto itself.

    I came to RA kind of late in the game, but have really appreciated the recs and promos you all have shared with us and hope to see you all around the fandom still sharing your brilliance!


  16. bevey99

    OMG, what am I going to do on Friday morning? Where am I going to go for recs? Just found y’all this year. I would have never heard of Planet Blue or FlufflyLiz if not for you 6 fabulous girls. Oh and new pics of the most attractive man i the world. This was my Friday addiction. Incredibly sad. Will u be taking this site down soon? I have go back and write down all of the stories I haven’t put on on my BRL. ;-[ ;-[ ;-[

    • Hi bevey99! We are so glad to have brought those amazing authors to your attention. Fanfiction is our addiction so you are sure to see us around somewhere. You will find fic recs on Bookish Temptations on a Friday, Twi FanFiction Complete Recs and also on The Lemonade Stand.

      Thanks for taking the time to visit us bevey99, and best wishes to you for 2014!

    • rita01tx

      Don’t worry, Bevey darlin’! RA isn’t bein’ taken down so ALL our posts will be available to peruse at your leisure.

      • Thank you, Rita, for that breath of hope! I’m having a panic attack over here, coz even if I read 24/7, I’ll not get to all the recs I’ve yet to read! Please, don’t delete anything! I’m trying, really I am! I know I don’t comment often-it’s coz I’m immersed in the wonderful recs! Love you guys, yours is the only blog I’ve got on alert!!! And, really FicSix,
        ALL of you leaving at the same time???? Can I beg just one of you to guest post every once in a great while if you find a truly awesome fic? Would be easier to accept if you left gradually…..! Like, one of you gets to leave per year for the next 6 years? Yes? No? Well, I had to try….pleeeeease?

  17. Reading this with great sadness. I will miss your weekly rec’s – always the best place to come to find a new fic to read or to be reminded of a great one to reread. All of you lovely ladies personify kindness and grace. Your encouragement and support mean so much so us authors. This will be missed by so many. Thank you for all you have done.

  18. Thanks very much Melanie. Your lovely words have made me tear up again. Thank you also for your support for FanFiction Fridays, your guest review, and your fantabulous fics that you so readily share with us all.

    Our very best wishes for 2014 go out to you Melanie!

  19. It’s taken me all day to get here. I’m so sad!

    I’d like also to thank the authors who breathe life into the characters we love so much – and share their words and thoughts so freely in the fics we fall in love with. They’re gifts to treasure and savour.

    Thanks also to our FFF readers, those who comment here, on FB or just read and read and…

    But mostly, and self-indulgently I’d like to say a huge thank you to the other five of the FicSix who have made me laugh, cry, given advice and shared the best fics old and new. You ladies really are a classy bunch who are loyal, kind and smart…truly wonderful.

    Okay. Sob-fest over. See you ho0rs on FB!
    Big love, WiltshireGlo xo

  20. Congratulations to all the well deserved winners. It’s been a brilliant year for fanfic. And on a personal note I want to thank the fic six for all the support you have shown me this year. Midnight Cougar, Cared, AllyVera, wiltshiregli, ilovealion, Gingerandgreen, you are all amazing. Happy New Year to you, and it hope you have a fantastic 2014. Chocaholic123 xoxo

  21. eewee333

    What am I going to do without you guys? I come to you for all my fic recs!! It’s been such an honor to get to know you all and I look forward to your posts throughout the week. I’ll try to find you guys on Facebook so I can keep up with all the stuff still going on in the fandom. Smooches and hugs to all of you!

    Eileen (aka/EeWee) 🙂

    • Thank you eewee333 for being with us for so long. You might get a chance to get somewhere with your TBR list now.

      We are all still around the fandom. I’m Cared Cullen on FB and I’d love to Friend you there.

      A very Happy New Year to you Eileen!

    • Hi Eileen, it’s been an honour for us as well. Thank you for all your support. Hope to see you on FB. xox

  22. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE 2013 WINNERS! Such wonderful stories!

    To my dearest FicSix and all our FFF readers,
    It’s been an honour and a pleasure to have been a part of Fan Fiction Fridays for so long…I will miss you all! *sniff* ❤ XOXO

    • Oh MC, it was an absolute honour to share space with you! I have said it before and I will say it again – how you did it on your own for so long amazes me! *hugs* AV x

  23. christa64c

    While I understand that real life causes most of the fun stuff in our lives to get pushed aside, I’m so sad to see this end. You wonderful ladies have given us all endless amounts of laughs and insights into the wonderful world of fanfiction. I’ll miss your collective posts but will look forward to seeing you all around the fandom.

  24. Thanks so much to everyone who voted for Fridays at Noon!! I so appreciate the love and support. You guys over here have always been so good to me and I can’t tell you how much that means to me!

    • Hi Troublefollows! Thank you so much for dropping by and congratulations on the much deserved win. On a personal note (and I know Midnight Cougar will be with me on this one) thank you so much for sharing Pennyward with us. I read it from a WIP when you were only a mere 7 chapters in and it owned me until completion. I can’t tell you how many times I have re-read it – but its quite a few! LOL Take care, AV xox

    • Congrats, Troublefollows Edward! You know how much I’ve always loved Pennyward. And you’re welcome; it was our pleasure!

  25. Thanks for all of your hard work, lades. I’ve read some great fics because of your FFF posts. And it truly was an honor to be included among them. Best of luck to you all. ❤

  26. Oh, nooooooo! This makes me almost as sad as the end of the Twilight movies – but as someone else said above, we do appreciate you wrapping up FFF so neatly and on such a high note.
    Thanks so much, ladies of the Fic Six, for all the enthusiasm and love you put into your recommendations. I always looked forward to FFF, even if it sometimes took me a few days to get to them, because these posts demanded my full attention.

    And thank the goddess RA will continue in some form, because squeeing over RobPorn together makes it ten times more fun. Of course any time any one of you wants to post a little something reccing a fic, you’ll absolutely have an appreciative audience! Thanks especially for leaving everything on-line, because I came to RA fairly recently, and I’m sure I missed some FFF posts.

    Sniffle, sniffle.

    • Ah, thanks so much Renee. We have loved every minute of it too and appreciate the support we have been shown by readers and authors alike.

      I’m Cared Cullen on FB if you’d like to look for me.

      Best wishes to you for the New Year!

  27. oilily2001

    Oh my…what a “sad” post to start the new year! I just read this and I’m a little tearing up here. I’m sad, because another great blog seems to come to an end. I only discovered your wonderful site 2 years ago, so I’m nowhere nearly satisfied, though I was lurking most of the time! I loved FFF so much and it was my first source to go for great recs. Thank you so much for all this work! I will miss FFF a lot! 😦

    • Thanks oilily, it’s always been a pleasure to hear from you.

      The FicSix still love our fic and will still be active in the fandom, so we will see you around.

      Best wishes to you for 2014!

  28. I adore Caroline aka Cared Cullen! She has been there for me as an author *her help on “Wrap You in My Arms”, “The Self Help Guru’ and “You Belong To Me” have been invaluable*. But also as a reader, I’ve found many treasured fics I would never have discovered if it hadn’t been for her recommendations. I heart you HARD darlin’. muah!!—Anne aka Emmamama88

    • *wipes tear from eye*

      Thanks Anne, your kinds words me so much to me.

      Thanks to you also for the pleasure of your stories, and the support you have always shown to FanFiction Fridays.

      I hope 2014 is a wonderful year for you. x
