So, the other day, Zveka was sharin’ a completed fic community she’d created on FFN with me by email…hell’n I was snaggin’ the ones I hadn’t read as fast as possible LMAO!
Today’s rec caught my eye enough that I’m still readin’ as we speak! It seemed familiar yet it wasn’t the same as I remembered.
That’s when I made the mistake of checkin’ the comments! Woo boy! That poor kid was bein’ accused of all kinds of plagarism and it wasn’t pretty!
Well, I went into full blown detective mode and didn’t find the fic everyone thought she’d stolen anywhere. However, what I did find was this:
Anyone who wishes to use any ideas from my story Changing the Future is welcome to do so. You do not even need to give me credit for them. I am making all of my ideas from that story public domain. Thanks.
Ah ha! This explained a lot!
Personally, since Changing the Future has disappeared, I’m glad this author saved it for posterity in its current form ’cause I’ve been laughin’ my ass off!

Now that Edward and Bella have changed the future with their foreknowledge, they assume Tyler doesn’t hit Bella with his van…wrong! He just totals Edward’s Volvo instead and she still gets hurt! Guess some things were meant to be no matter what LOL!
But it was the aftermath that cracked me the fuck up LMAO!
Rose and Alice stopped by after school to keep me entertained. Rose took over the phone, screening all my calls and deflecting all the nosy gossips.
“Frankly, Jessica if we wanted you to know, we’d tell you. If you were supposed to know, you would have been there at the time. Since you weren’t and we don’t, you’re just going to have to wait for the memo like everybody else,” Rose snapped into the phone. “Bella’s not your friend, she’s not your sister, and she’s certainly not your rival, as that would imply you actually had a chance, so really, you’re just not on the ‘need to know’ list. Actually, you’re on the LIMP list, for Least Important People. So, get a life and stop trying to live vicariously through everyone else’s.” She slammed down the phone, glaring at it irritably.
A few seconds later it rang again.
“Hello, Swan Residence, Bella Swan’s Answering Service. How may I help you?”
“Uh, this is Mike Newton. I was calling to check on Bella?”
“She’s fine. Goodbye.”
“Can I talk to her?”
“I’m sorry Newton but she’s busy right now. The love of her life and soul mate, Edward Cullen, is feeding her grapes with his fingers while she is curled up in his lap. He’s been waiting on her hand and foot all day like a lovesick slave, and, honestly, one lovesick puppy is enough for any girl. Since she already has someone stronger, smarter, and better looking filling that role, you need to give up and apply for that role with some other chick, got it?”
“Uhhh… Who is this again?”
“This is Bella’s sister. I’m going to do you a favor and let you in on a little secret. Bella does not want to go out with you. She will never want to go out with you. Even if you were the only boy in the entire town of Forks, she still would not date you. So go find another girl to be the object of your obsession, because this one is already taken. I don’t think there is a man alive who is more obsessive than Eddie here, so he’s even got you beat there. Do yourself a favor and focus on Jessica instead. At least then you’ll probably finally get some.” She laughed evilly and hung up briskly.
“Did it work? Will he finally give up on asking me out?” I asked Alice hopefully. She went into her vision trance and came out again shortly thereafter giggling. She shook her head and laughed.
“Nope! That boy’s head is harder than ours! I’m not sure there’s anything strong enough to knock some sense into him,” she professed.
The phone rang again, for the twenty-fifth time since school let out.
“Hello, Swan Residence, how can I help you?” Rose answered sarcastically.
“Rose? Is that you?”
“Oh, hi, Angela. Would you like to talk to Bella?”
“Sure, if she’s up to it.”
“Well, let me see if I can sneak you past her resident bodyguard,” Rose quipped. She tossed the phone over to Bella and Edward promptly caught it, handing it to me.
And when the wolves realize Alice can’t see them comin’?
A light bulb went off in my head. A slow, mischievous grin started spreading across my wolfy face, baring my teeth. It probably would have scared the crap out of a human looking at it, but my companions all recognized it for what it was.
You do realize, my dear friends, that we werewolves are the only ones who can actually surprise Alice. Can you think of the pranks Emmett and Jasper would be able to pull if we work together? They’ve both been so busy whining about how they can never do it that none of us have even considered the implications of our involvement before. We could all play games and stuff together and she won’t automatically know who’s going to win or what cards her opponents have. We can help level the playing field for them, and then they’re going to owe us.
Embry let out a barking laugh. You are so bad, Jake, but I like the way you think.
So let’s go surprise them already. What are we waiting for? Leah asked.
We started running again, following the scent deep into the forest. I reminded them to keep calm, to try and minimize their emotions, so we wouldn’t alert Jasper through his gift. We came to a hot spring with a waterfall. It was gorgeous. I wanted to come back sometime when I could be alone to truly enjoy it. The two vampires were naked and embracing in the water. They were so occupied that we were able to surround them with ease.
Okay, on my signal, we’re all going to bark. Hearing it come unexpectedly from all four directions should scare the crap out of them, not that vampires have normal bodily functions or anything, but you know what I mean.
One, Two, Three, RAORWF! The simultaneous barks echoed off the trees. Their reaction was everything we could have hoped. Jasper sprang about fifteen feet straight up into the air, with Alice wrapped tightly around his body.
His eyes made a rapid assessment of the situation the moment he became airborne. I saw the recognition in his eyes before he even hit the height of his jump. The four of us fell to the ground laughing hysterically. How many people could say they sneaked up on and startled a vampire? How many could say the same about a psychic vampire? We were so cool.
We were all rolling on our backs, kicking our paws in excess merriment. I watched Jasper on his way back down into the water. I saw our waves of laughter pass over and through him. He struggled to hold back his own laughter in response to ours. But it was his eyes that scared me as his body started sinking back into the water. His mouth might be smiling, but his eyes promised revenge.
Uh, guys. I think it would be best if we leave now. Jasper’s not too happy with us at the moment.
Yeah, that’s why I’ll be burnin’ the midnight oil tonight LMAO!
Now, what have you been readin’ this week?
Happy Friday, y’all!
