Rob Attack

and just KNEW there had to be a fic associated with it somewhere! Oh, gawd…if there wasn’t, I’d kill for someone…anyone, to fic it LOL!

Well, it took a while but I found another one…both made by Lindz of RobmaniPorn, as it turns out!!

It was when I accidently stumbled onto this banner and spied the snake tatt in the waves that I realized I’d found the Holy Grail!!!

So far, I’d have to say I’m intrigued…

It had been almost two weeks since my first date with Edward. I had spent most all of my free time with him. We had been on several dates, but had also spent a great deal of our time hanging out on the beach, swimming in the ocean and just being together. However, out of all the things we had done, I would have to admit that my favorite thing to do with Edward was kiss. His lips were so soft and warm, molding perfectly with mine every time he kissed me. There were times when I felt like I could never get enough of him kissing me and it didn’t take long for me to realize the more time we spent together, the harder I found myself falling for him.

On our first day together after that first date, we went swimming and I got quite the surprise when Edward pulled his shirt off. As his arms rose in the air and the shirt went with them I was offered a view of one of the sexiest things I had ever seen. Not only was I afforded the sight of his bare chest, but Edward had a tattoo. This was not your everyday ordinary tattoo. Etched onto his skin was the image of a king cobra snake coiled and ready to strike. It was probably close to a foot long and maybe half that in width. The tattoo ran along the expanse of his sturdy ribcage. The body of the snake was black, but the head of the snake boasted piercing green eyes that reminded me so much of Edward’s. As his abs moved, rising and falling with each inhale and exhale of air, it almost appeared as if the snake was moving, causing its eyes to give me the sensation as if it were watching me, peering right into the very depths of my soul. I was ompletely mesmerized and had to fight the urge to reach out and run my fingers along the intricate design.

I shivered and it brought his attention to the fact I’d been staring at him. He then asked if it bothered me. I told him no and asked why he had gotten it. He had explained that when he was in the army, once he had been assigned to his Special Forces team all the guys went out and got tattoos of their unit’s call name when they completed their training. It was a tradition and an extreme bonding ritual amongst the team members and his team’s name was obviously the Cobras.

Since that day we had gone swimming many times and it affected me the same each time I watched him remove his shirt. I think he knew it too.

The writin’ is not without its flaws but we’ve all overlooked such trivialities for a rivitin’ plot, right?

I’m excited to see where this goes so I’m off to finish a few more chapters before I have to give up for the night!

What fics have you all excited???

Happy Friday, y’all!

      Mary, darlin’! {{HUGS!}} You’re very welcome and thanks for droppin’ by! Many thanks for the awesome story AND the visuals, of course *drool!*
      Dunno whose body Lindz used for the manip but, after all the pics we’ve seen of Rob since he’s been trainin’ so much, I imagine he’s gettin’ there *swoon!* I’ve heard there will be tatts for The Trap, one of the films he’ll be doin’ this year, and now I really can’t wait LOL!

    As usual – I feel like I’ll never catch up! I have 4 chapters left from last week’s Adorable story with the geeky Edward, and now I have a whole CSI story to read BEFORE the new one. It’s saved on my phone – so hopefully if I ignore what you have to say for the next few weeks – I will catch up!

    • rita01tx

      Oh, dear! I’ve put you in quite the pickle, haven’t I Donna darlin’ LOL!
      Well, Geek Boy first ’cause that shizz is not to be missed *gigglesnort!* But I know what you mean about tryin’ to catch up…or even keep up! Never did get the chance to read any more of Truths, Lies and Alibis and it’s already well after midnight *sigh!*
      It’s all Rob’s fault, of course! Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was on TV again and I just had to watch it…again! And I sobbed my eyes out AGAIN!

    • I feel your pain, dpenn. I am always a step or two behind. I just find myself so easily distracted by random fics, but I’ve managed to find some real gems that way. I’m still working on last week’s recs too.

  3. Hi y’all! Last week I came across a fic called Evermore Experience by deJean Smith . I may have gotten this from a rec in an author’s note or something. This fic had a very intriguing and different premise. It’s a vamp fic, Canon couples, but with a couple original characters and a supernatural twist. I’ve not read a fic like it. I think the mini sequel, Beyond Evermore was better. I wish the author had fleshed out certain things a bit more, bbecause I was very intrigued. If you like period fics (not pure period), and a bit of supernatural, you might like these.

    • dpennell007

      MORE to add to my list! I just started her latest ‘She tames the beast within’ the other day (4 chapters so far), and she just sent me a teaser for Monday’s edition. Squeeee! Love it already.

      • rita01tx

        Wow! This author’s gettin’ a lot of attention today LOL!
        She tames the beast within by DeJean Smith
        She only knows of a day-to-day existence. He only knows of life on a silver platter. She only knows contentment with what she has. He only knows the lust for more, and he has her in his sights. An expansion of my Twilight 25, round 9, exploration of the prompt, ‘innocence.’

      • Gonna have to put this on alert, it sounds good.

    • rita01tx

      I first heard about this fic from Magnolia822, Kay darlin’…just didn’t make a note of which of her fics I was readin’ at the time LOL!

      Bella Swan receives an invitation to the exclusive Evermore Experience, an in-depth immersion summer program where she plans to fully explore 19th century England, but fate has other plans for her once she arrives. A mostly AU story.

      Thanks for bringin’ ’em to our attention!

  4. Got my email from Michaelmas54 today…squee! I’ve read CSI Seattle twice now, so good! And the Evermore Experience was very different, So twisted but fun. I’m reading one now called Blood, by cupcakeriot, NOT Canon vamps, but so far I can’t put it down…yikes! I’ll let you know if I survive the ride! Love from RobbieElise….

    • RobberIes, if you enjoyed EE, then you’ll love BE. I’d love to hear how you liked Blood.

    • rita01tx

      Blood sounds like an intriguin’ read, too, Robbie darlin’! Puttin’ up the link in case anyone else wants in on it LOL!
      Blood by Cupcakeriot
      I realized, with no small amount of disbelief, that my life had become the vampire version of Cinderella. Except that I didn’t lose a shoe once upon a time; I lost my life. I also realized, reluctantly, that I belonged to him – that my blood was his.

  5. Rita, I wanted to thank you for rec’ing Awkwardly Yours. It is the funniest fic, bar none that I have read. EVER. I made the mistake of reading it at the hair salon. I may have embarrassed my surly twelve year old daughter. She says I was laughing loudly the whole time we were there. It couldn’t be helped because that shizz was hysterical. It was awkward, uncomfortable and mortifyingly fun from the first sentence to the last. I so needed that laughter. I’m reading Mysterious Ways now.

    • rita01tx

      Yeah, readin’ fanfiction in public can catch you offguard in the most embarrassin’ ways whether it’s laughin’ out loud or suddenly sobbin’ your heart out, which happened to me at work one day when I was readin’ Ultio by Mac214 & 22blue {long gone from FFN}! Holy fuck…I had to make a mad dash for the ladies room to hide out for at least half an hour before I could get my shit back together!!!

    • Kay this happened to me to not with this story… this one I read it at home!, I was in the waiting room to see my doctor few months ago and I started to read Died and Gone to Heaven by DoUTrustMe (pulled fiction) and as you I started to laugh loudly and people around was just looking at me like I am crazy or something lol… from there I became careful where I read something funny 🙂

      • rita01tx

        Ah, but it’s when you least expect somethin’ to be LOL funny or waterworks sad that you get tripped up LOL!
        I’m not safe even in the privacy of my own home! DH looks up every now and then to see what’s got me fallin’ off my chair or offers a shoulder when I’m sobbin’ my eyes out…bless him, he tries not to laugh LMAO!

  6. bevey99

    Well I was reading A Bastard’s Girl by CaraNo of FF. Received a notice for Chapter 5, only to find it had completely vanished. Sad. And, it’s not on her web-site either. Sniff Okay I finished this one – Edward’s Sister by Powered by 23 Kicks
    A coming-of-age story about a girl who loves until it hurts like crazy. Bella’s schizoid imagination and tomboyish, adventuresome drive keeps her above water, despite physical and painful life setbacks. Quiet and dark like the night, she’s capable of unexpected displays, much like a shooting star-she’s just waiting for the right moment to be brave.
    I definitely won’t appeal to everyone, because the title says it all. It was done very well.

    • rita01tx

      I saw that, Bev darlin’! Wonder if she pulled it herself or it got pulled by FFN for some reason? Either way, it blows big chunks!!!
      I’ve got Powered by 23 Kicks on my TBR but haven’t read anything yet!

      • dpennell007

        Cara posted this in her FB group:
        “Hi, everyone! As you’ve noticed, Bastard was taken down, and it’s because of the title. I’ve been banned for 48 hours, but after that I’ll post it again, new title, and I’ll be careful with the lemons and post them on my WordPress.
        Stand by for the first five chapters of Are You Kidding Me & His Girl.
        Feel free to copy this message if you see anyone wondering where A Bastard’s Girl went. XOXO”

  7. Thanks for rec’d Rita
    I read most of the stories, and I have others on my TBR list thinking that I am also two or three step behind …
    finished to read Awkwardly Yours…excellent!!! I started Mysterious Ways… great too 🙂

    • rita01tx

      You’re welcome, Zveka darlin’! I’m so pleased those 2 recs got everyone so excited! They certainly deserve the attention!!!
