Sunday Edition…’cause I forgot what day it was *DOH!*
Good afternoon, ladies!
I ain’t even kiddin’…thought today was Saturday and y’all wouldn’t even be mad I made you wait one extra day! Now, makin’ y’all wait TWO extra days is a cryin’ shame so I’m gonna make it up to you with one of the most fun fics I ever read!
But, before I get to that one, I have to explain how I lost a day…maybe two *facepalm!* See, I was cruisin’ my TBR and this summary caught my eye:
It has been 8 long years since Edward left Bella on their wedding day. Bella has finally come back to Forks to visit Charlie, only to find that Edward has also returned, and he has been keeping a big secret from her.
“Big secret” was the kicker, so I dived in feet first! The name of the fic was Eight Years Later by JMeyer. Only problem is she’s long gone and so is the fic…lucky for me, I had it on pdf!
Edward looked different. Edward, the vampire, who remained unchanged for almost one hundred years, looked different. His hair had always been windblown and soft. I had run my hands through his bronze, silky hair countless times. Even now my fingertips tingled with memory. Looking at his hair now, it was nothing like I remember. It was much shorter, and darker.
His skin had always been the palest of pale. Yet now, it was softened by a light tan. His cheeks and forehead were slightly pink, as if they were sunburned. And his eyes! His eyes had alternated between deep onyx and golden amber. But now they were a shining, brilliant emerald green.
“I, I don’t understand,” I finally spoke.
“Bella, we need to talk,” Edward said.
So begins the mystery of how Edward came to leave Bella on their weddin’ day but why did he stay away so long and what did the future hold for them?
Those were the questions that had me readin’ into the wee hours, forgettin’ everything! As is always the case, humans are more fragile and ephemeral than vampires, so I was a blubberin’ mess by the time I shut down my computer last night *sigh!*
Which brings us to the fun fic rec LMAO!
‘Cause after all the drama, you GOTS to have a good comedy, right? Otherwise, there’s no balance in our fanfiction universe!

Seventeen-year-old Bella enjoys the night life of New York City a little too much causin’ Charlie to drag her off to the backwoods of Alabama to a little town called Intercourse, of all things!
Bella is sure she’s landed in Hell until she meets…
…the boy with the craziest hair I’d ever seen sticking out from underneath his truckers hat made me want to straddle the railing on the porch and scream “yeehaw, giddy up boy!”.
When life throws you a situation so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not unreasonable to be a little pissed about it.
The Trucker Hat Dude smiled in a friendly way as he sauntered forward with what seemed like every intention of killing me with southern charm. I had other ideas…
Of course, the rest of the gang show up as well and it doesn’t take long for Bella to figure out the advantages of partyin’ in the privacy of the deep woods surroundin’ Intercourse, Alabama!
Dirt Roads was my introduction to Livie79 and Iambeagle way back in 2011 and you know anything these crazy girls write is gonna be gooood…but together, they are fuckin’ awesome!
What fics have got you readin’ into the wee hours?
Happy Sunday, y’all!
