Random Rita ~ When Edward Gets a Do Over!

Wet Rob Avi

Don’t know about you ladies, but I get a kick outta fics that take me waaay outta the box LOL!

This week, my wanderin’ around the fandom took me to a very short fic (4 chapters COMPLETE) by GinnyW31 that I hadn’t read before.

In this story, Bella didn’t survive that first day in Biology…


nor the next…


nor the next!


I think you get the picture LOL! If you want to see if Edward manages to get it right in the end, please read Causality…NO, not casualty…Caus-al-i-ty!!


Edward Cullen had found that life as a vampire was one tedious day after another … until one tedious day never ended. Twilight-AU, Edward/Bella

Of course, the concept of havin’ to live the same day over and over reminded me of a similar fic by Lyricalkris!

The Butterfly Effect by LyricalKris


Edward’s fall from grace destroyed not only his life, but the lives of those he loved the most. When he passes out teetering on the edge of total destruction and wakes up 17 again, how many times will he have to repeat the same day to set things right?

  1. I remember the first time I saw that gif! I was like WTF!?!?! That never happened! Then the more I looked at it the more it made me laugh! There’s more to it too I think. He ends up dragging her down the aisle by her neck! I bet that was fun to film for him. For K? Not so much LOL

    sound like an interesting fic for sure! Thanks Rita!

      I don’t remember him draggin’ her down the aisle by her neck. I’ll have to look it up on YouTube and check LOL!
      As for Causality, it’s amazin’ the detail she manages to pack into just 4 chapters! And, my heart stopped when Edward wasn’t the only one to kill Bella:

      I brushed aside the rest of Jasper’s mental words when I began to see images of him thinking about how he’d killed her.
      It made my vision turn red with anger, but I chose instead to run. With her body in my arms, I went all the way to my
      My rationale for carrying her body with me couldn’t be explained. The dead weight in my arms simply served as a
      reminder of all that I’d lost. Jasper had killed her, he’d been the one to suck her life out of her, and he’d been the one to
      potentially take her away from me for good.
      I stood in the wet, desolate, silent field with her body in my arms all night, as I thought. My family knew enough about me
      to stay away. This was one place where they wouldn’t disturb me unless I asked them to.
      Time dragged on as I counted down each hour, each minute, and each second in my head. Leaning my head down, I
      kissed the motionless form in my arms just as I counted down the final seconds. Then, just as I’d hoped it would, the
      world shifted around me, and Isabella Swan’s body shimmered and then vanished from my arms… and my day began

      That was one do over he was very happy to have!!!

    I was shocked the first time I saw that, too, and was like “when the hell did THAT happen?” Then when I watched it a few times, it cracked me up. I also like how Edward manages a small boob grope as well.:) Very slick, Edward.;)

  3. ClaireBamboozle

    Hi Rita, I’m with EVT I think Rob deliberately went for the boob grope, the sly dog, LMAO.
    Thanks for bringing us some more lovely fic recs honey.
    Have a great day xx

    • rita01tx

      You’re welcome, Claire Bear! Both are really good reads, combinin’ humor with quite a dark situation, when you think about it LOL! I LOVE Lyricalkris’s fic because Edward goes back to his childhood where he was a NERD!

  4. ClaireBamboozle

    The trouble is, because I’m in writing mode at the moment, I’m trying not to read much, in case I lose my thread, so I’m saving them all to my e reader for later.

    • rita01tx

      Eep! Well, we can’t have that! I WANT that fic when you’re done LOL!

      • ClaireBamboozle

        Don’t worry, it’s coming straight to you for the benefit of your mad editing skills BB.

        • Glad someone else has that problem Claire! I read a lot of writing tips and tricks and they all say if you wanna be a writer then read read READ! HA!! Every second I spend reading is another second I’m not only not writing but taking me further and further away from wanting to or being able to write! I read when I’m stuck! Cuz then i sometimes get unstuck. If that doesn’t help I do the one thing I know will work, I hollar “Riiiiitttttaaaaa!!!!”

          • rita01tx

            Dayum, woman! I can hear you from across the Atlantic LMAO!

          • ClaireBamboozle

            Hahaha, sorry for the delay, forgot to hit notify…doh!
            Yep, I love reading, but I get pulled away from my plot by getting involved in someone else’s, and I’m with you on giving Rita a yell, she never seem to be stuck for ideas when my characters have painted me into a corner lol.

            • rita01tx

              A fresh set of eyes can sometimes make all the difference LOL! One of the reasons we NEED pre-readers and betas/editors!

  5. xpreadmywings

    Awww…Rita, you spoil us! TGIF and you’re here for the Do Over’s recs! I’ve read TBE but not Causality, which I intend to do STAT
    Can I rec some b-i-u-t-i-f-u-l ones too? All complete and HEA *of coooourse* and available at ffn.
    Do Over by the incomparable TKegl

    The Greatest Gift by the amazing les16 (if you haven’t read The Breakers, whatcha waiting for?)

    Firefly in Summer by primarycolors (seriously, whatever else she writes will be a bonus)

    Spinning Bottles by another great author knicnort3

    Aaand being the weird old cat that I am, the bestest but unfortunately pulled
    Clockwork by the supertalented DerdriuoFaolain. *though I’m sure it’s available thru any good fanfic dealer cough cough*

    Is it that obvious I like this genre? Nah… *winks*
    Again, thank you my dear and Happy Weekend!

    • rita01tx

      See! This is why I NEED you guys to remind me! I totally enjoyed Do Over by TKegl and I’m a huge fan of hers!

      I’m afraid I haven’t read The Greatest Gift or The Breakers {I worked my way through her one shots but didn’t get to her multi-chapter fics *DOH!*

      Firefly in Summer ~ still on my TBR *sigh!*

      Spinning Bottles ~ 32 chapter WIP, right? I was waitin’ for it to complete but the last update was July 19, 2012!

      Now, Clockwork I followed from beginnin’ to end with the greatest pleasure AND I pdf’d it before it got pulled LOL!

      We seem to have the same {great} taste in fics, Wings darlin’!

      • rita01tx

        Oops! My bad…Spinning Bottles is COMPLETE!
        This twist of fate story finds Edward Masen, CEO of Cullen Enterprises, getting thrust into the life that he would have had if he never left for college in New York after high school. *My take on the movie “The Family Man” * AH, B/E, AU, HEA, EPOV

    What’s better than reading a story where Edward gets a chance to redeem himself? A story where he gets chance after chance to get it right! These stories remind me that Edward isn’t perfect, but he’s freaking close!

    • rita01tx

      I know what you mean, Christa darlin’! Maybe it’s because we fell so hard for original Edward *coughROBcough!* but, even when he’s fucked up beyond all repair {as in Dusty}…when he has NO redeemin’ qualities {as in House of the Horde}, I always fall a little bit in love with him anyway LOL!

      • oh Dusty how I love him:-)!!!!

        • rita01tx

          Dusty was one of the very few fics I’ve ever given a 5 star PLUS ratin’ on my TBR, Robszombie darlin’! I’ve never cried so hard or so long readin’ Edward’s descent to rock bottom with no promise of HEA for him! Gawd! I wanted to murder his parents for not noticin’ until it was too late!!!
          {don’t know what’s up with WP…it stopped sendin’ me notices of new commenets!}

  7. Thanks so much Rita, for the GIF as well as the recs. You have SUCH a stash of great GIFs! I’m glad I’m not the only one who focused on the gropage – and who says KS didn’t enjoy it too??

    I was looking up xpreadmywings’ rec of knicnort3’s fic, and gasped (out loud) to see that she has a vamp fic in progress! It appears to be based on the TV series by the same name. I can’t be the only one who loves seeing Billy Burke lighting up my screen every week!

    Thanks for continuing to make Fridays something special to look forward to…

    • rita01tx

      You better believe I have my eye on that fic, Renee darlin’! I can barely wait for it to complete LOL! I haven’t watched any episodes of that series but I’ve seen clips that look fabulous! Well, it’s got Billy Burke in it so that’s a win right there, although I do miss his Charlie moustache *gigglesnort!*

      • eewee333

        Rita-You should watch the series (I just got caught up on season one on Netflix) and let me tell you, our beloved Charlie/Miles is one Badass! I love him.

        • rita01tx

          Tried Netflix for a trial period…let it go cause it didn’t live up to its reputation. Well, at least what they gave us here in Europe was crap!
          Maybe I’ll get lucky and find it repeated late nights in future!
