Accordin’ to good ol’ Google:

MVP is an abbreviation for Most Valuable Player and is an award given to an individual player for their outstanding achievements during the season. In Major League Baseball, both the American League and National League award an MVP for the regular season. There is also a World Series MVP awarded to a player on the championship team. The regular season MVP is voted on by journalists who belong to the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA). Voting takes places at the conclusion of the regular season, and winners are announced after the World Series. The first MVP awards handed out after voting by the BBWAA in 1931.

No baseball yet…only 1 chapter posted so far, but you really don’t wanna miss this:

No more than six or seven years old, he stood near the door of the building, holding on to a red plastic cup, with a distressed-looking frown on his face.

“Oh, no! Mary! Thirteen!” the child cried out. Just a few feet away, a young woman with bright blue streaks dyed into her dark black hair darted in and out of the busy people who walked past her, squatting down and picking up colorful, bouncing rubber balls that rolled across the area. The two stood out in this white and black world like a pair of circus performers, yet no one but me seemed to even notice them.

“I’ll get ’em, Jackie!” the woman promised. “Here. Put these in your cup. There’s four.”

“Thirteen!” the boy moaned.

I watched the spectacle with curiosity. Obviously, the boy had been carrying rubber balls in his cup, and they’d spilled to bounce and roll across the area in front of the building. The woman was trying her best to collect each and every one of them, but when one of the small rubber missiles bounced off the toe of my shoe and rolled toward the street, I knew that unless I acted quickly, they’d never be able complete the boy’s collection. The ball had rolled over the curb and disappeared beneath a shiny black Sedan that was parked there. While it was nothing more than a twenty-five-cent toy that could be purchased in any turn-knob-style machine, it was obviously important to the child. He wiped tears from his face with the back of his hand while the woman continued her search for the missing toys.

“Here’s ten, eleven, twelve…” the woman counted, dropping the balls she’d collected into his cup.

“Thirteen, Mary! Thirteen!”

With a sigh, I stood and walked over to the curb. Mindful not to ruin my stockings, I carefully lowered myself to my knees and stretched my body forward like a cat, pressing my cheek to the warm concrete while I peered under the vehicle. Just as I thought, the ball had rolled to rest just behind the back tire. It wouldn’t be easy to reach. I pushed my arm out as far as I could and wiggled my fingers, smiling when I finally felt the rubber ball beneath my fingertips. I froze, however, when I heard someone clear their throat above me.

“Not that I mind the view,” a decidedly masculine voice spoke. “But would you mind telling me what in the hell you’re doing to my car?”

I closed my eyes and groaned, realizing that my bottom was pointed straight up at the owner of the vehicle that I was practically crawling beneath. Trying to muster up whatever dignity I could, I stood and straightened my clothing before turning to face the man who towered above me.

Oh, damn.

Now for a little reminder of these jewels of the past:

Abbracciare Il Cantante – What if Edward left Forks after his first encounter with Bella, and he never returned? Fate couldn’t keep these two apart. But meeting at a later time and place might have changed the nature of their relationship.

Click & Strum – Bella moves from Forks to St. Louis to share a luxury loft apartment, The Abbey, with her stepsister, Rosalie. Edward, Rose’s womanizing neighbor, is supposed to keeps his hands off…yeah, right!

Four Summers – Sun, surf and sand. Best friends, and best kisses. Broken hearts, broken ties, and dreams that can never be broken. A bounce through time between summers past, and somewhere closer to present-day. Every road we travel leads us to exactly where we are meant to be.

Green – What happens when lawn-boy, geek, and self-proclaimed social leper finds himself in a situation that shakes his comfortable invisibility? Will he stay green? AU- All human. 

In Vain – Bella is a girl who desperately wants control over her own life. Edward is a Volturi guard who is accustomed to being in a position of control. Together, they struggle with a force that neither of them have any control over, whatsoever. OOC, AU.

Love on Wheels – It’s fast… it’s fun… it’s 1978! The most ‘not-to-be-taken-seriously-fic’ that you’ll ever be tempted to take seriously!

My Escort – When Edward’s partial scholarship gets taken away, he reluctantly takes the advice of his roommate and gets a job at a high-class escort agency. Relax… it’s a legit company. He’s got nothing to lose. Or does he? All-human, OOC.

Ring of Stars – When Edward finally had the opportunity to present Bella with Elizabeth Masen’s ring, he was surprised to learn that the small black box held a far greater gift to him, than the delicate gold band that was nestled inside. O/S

The Best Man – Next-door neighbors home from college, reunited for two weeks of their summer break. Childhood memories and adult hijinks abound. Will a friendly competition strengthen childhood bonds? Or will it help to forge a new relationship between adults? AH/AU

Toye – Vampires like to play with their food. A campy and kitschy horror short-story that lets the men of the Cullen household be the monsters that Edward always claimed they were. Extremely OOC.

Ring any bells? Countless hours were pleasantly spent lost in each of these fics back in the day and I, for one, wouldn’t mind if Kat considered repostin’ one or two or ALL…no pressure *whistles!*

Happy Friday, y’all!

    I didn’t start reading fanfiction (2011) until BrattyVamp was long gone, but I clicked on her new story and instantly followed. There’s plenty of room for redemption for her Edward, plus I’m a sucker for needy little boys.

    • rita01tx

      You’n me both, Donna darlin’…sucker for needy little boys, that is LOL! I’m damn curious to find out the source of Edward’s reaction!

  2. edwardsvamptramp69

    Kermit’s reaction was pretty much mine as well, Rita! I’m so friggin’ excited she’s back!!!!

    “Toye” is my all time FAVORITE horror story in the fandom……………..she just killed me with that one. Even if I didn’t reread the whole thing……….I would just go back to the last two chapters and read it over and over. Simply incredible the effect she had on us…….*dreamy sigh* So now I get to fangirl on her all over again. 😉

    • rita01tx

      Yay! Another Toye fan *fist bump!* If I remember correctly, that was my first experience of an evil Edward, Paula darlin’! Made one hell of an impact but it was done with such wonderfully wicked humor, it left me grinnin’ ear-to-ear LMAO!

      • edwardsvamptramp69

        OMG, Rita!!! I was horrified (but in a good way)! I can’t recall any other story that I’ve read where Bella is killed intentionally by Edward!! And a wickedly EVIL Edward, at that. It was so off the grid and I think that’s why it stayed with me.

  3. Hi Rita
    Another great review I haven’t read her work but I’m on my way over there now x

    • rita01tx

      Well, if you wanna dip your toe into the rest of her work, while you wait for MVP to get up to speed, I could probably hook you up, Alison darlin’ LOL!

  4. robpfan

    The Best Man has me in tears every time I read it and whenever I hear Time of Your Life by Green Day I can’t help but think if this story. 🙂

    • rita01tx

      She has such a talent for writin’ emotional rollercoasters, Robpfan darlin’! I was partial to Click and Strum myself where no one believed in Edward, not even himself! Lucky for us, Kat gives us the best HEA’s to make up for it…well, except for Toye, unless you’re not a Bella fan LMAO!

  5. Thanks Rita for rec’d
    I read only Abbracciare Il Cantante from her, will add her new story to my alert list …

  6. bevey99

    i’ve never read any of her stories. Seems odd, cause her name pops up all over the place betaing for some people. {Rita I would love Toye. ;-] }
    Also that makes me think of Hide and Drink. Does anyone have a pdf of that fic. I’ve lost it somehow. And was at the top of my all-time favorites list. Agnst ridden till the bitter end.

  7. eewee333

    Hi Rita! SOOOOO happy Bratty is back. I adored Toye. My favorite bad Edward of all time. He was so smooth too! I’ve read a couple of her stories, but she pulled them and disappeared before I got a chance to finish them all. Are they on PTS? Or do you have them on PDF? And what is DitR that zveka is reading? Always looking for those stories that grab you and won’t let go.

    Have a great week! Hugs. E

    • rita01tx

      Hi, Eewee darlin’! Yes, you can find her stories on PTS or I can send you the ones you want…your choice!
      DitR is Diamond in the Rough by lmlx8. It’s an extremely angsty BDSM story where Bella has suffered terrible abuse at the hands of her ex-husband who is still stalkin’ her.
      Word of warnin’…it’s still a WIP and hasn’t updated since August 2014!
      http://lmlx8sdiamondintherough.blogspot.nl/2010/08/chapter-1.html

      • eewee333

        AWWWW yes, DitR! I read that as a WIP(before I learned my lesson) and it is/was a great story. It got to a really climactic part and then she just disappeared. I keep hoping she’ll finish it, but….

        I would love all of Bratty’s stories. Can you email them to me? I think you have my email. Many thanks. 🙂

      • Finished DitR! wow and wow! Hope she will come back and finish this story …

        she have 2 more chapters on her blog than on TWCS … so some issues are clear, I find where she left the story we can easily imagine where this story is going …

        now I need something light and funny and fluffy… if somebody have this kind in store please let me know… lol!
