Random Rita ~ Friday Feature Fics!


Evenin’, ladies!

Well, I’ve had some serious distractions from readin’ the Angel Series book 2 this week and these are some of the main culprits LOL!

I swear, sometimes there just no resistin’ the lure of an excitin’ new WIP!

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/12392293/1/Kaleidoscope

Carl Jung once said that the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. If this is indeed true, what purpose do we serve if everything we are is a lie? Does existence define us, or do we define existence? Boldly, I walk towards my destiny to find out. (Full summary in Chapter One.)

CIA agent, Edward Cullen, is…well, different!

My oldest memories are like fractured shards of glass, blurry and distorted. People tell me that it is because of the accident, the specifics of which are lost to me. No matter how hard I pull on the recesses of my mind, they have remained frustratingly out of reach.

“What do you see?”

The susurrus words break through my consciousness as coiled images whirl around me. The warped colors make it impossible to distinguish anything tangible. My stomach revolts, searing me from the inside as it fights against itself. I don’t know if I can do this. To the right, a shadowy figure emerges. My breath falters, panic closing off my air.

“Deep breaths. Remember, you are only an observer. Nothing can hurt you here.”

I force myself to suck in a mouthful of sour air, slowly pushing it back out through my nose. One, two, three, four, five. Panic transforms into cold detachment. Watch and report. That is my only job here today.

“What do you see?”

Hmmm, there might be something different about Bella, too…can’t quite put my finger on it yet!

Holding the gun steady, I carefully turn the knob and throw it open.

Barreling through, the unexpected image steals my already choked breath. The room, although shaken by the blast, is in better shape than the previous one. Sitting against a barren wall is a woman, an incredibly beautiful woman. She looks tiny against the vast space, her slight frame shaking. She is holding an unconscious man, blood dripping to the floor from a nasty gash on his head.

Held captive by her sorrowful russet eyes, I find myself hesitating to move. Taking advantage of my slip up, I watch as her expression alters, a sudden chill stealing the warmth that held me spellbound.

Like flipping a switch, her face transforms into an unsettling sneer, and with ruthless conviction, her hand snakes around to level me with the barrel of a gun.

Cocking back the hammer, she holds her arm steady. “You have one second to tell me why I shouldn’t kill you right where you stand.”

Well, this certainly makes things a bit more interesting.

Another “drop everything” story I can’t wait to see update!


ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/10948629/1/Swansong

My name is Isabella. On my 23rd birthday I found out that Tanya Denali, my mother, stole me from my biological parents as a baby. You’ve seen the movie, but this is my version. This is my Swansong.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Hurt/Comfort/Family – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 40 – Words: 139,570 – Reviews: 551 – Favs: 403 – Follows: 685 – Updated: Mar 16 – Published: Jan 5, 2015 – id: 10948629

Landin’ in jail on your birthday is bad enough! Learnin’ something that will change your life forever is quite another!

“Isabella, last night when you were detained, we took your fingerprints.

Now, legally, police keep a database of fingerprints from different crimes and crime scenes across the country. Are you aware of this?” I shook my head.

“Well, one of those databases is a missing persons database. Now, when we put your fingerprints into the database, they came up as a 92% match for a missing person’s case from 19-. Is that the year you were born?” I nodded.

“Okay, well, a 92% match is actually quite a high match. High enough that we have to reopen the case, alright? For you, all this means is that you have to make an appointment to come back and talk to me in a week, alright?” I nodded.

“Isabella, I need verbal confirmation that you understand what I’m saying.”

“No, I get it. I need to come talk to you in a week. I’ll make the appointment. Please, can I please go home?” Detective Rourke smiled and nodded, before standing up. She opened the door, and walked me out to a desk.

Lucky for her, Detective Edward Cullen is assigned to her case…not that their first meetin’ goes altogether smoothly LOL!

As I walked into the room, Detective Cullen sat up and looked towards me. The first thing I noticed was his hair. As anyone who has seen the pictures of him can attest to, it’s a strange color that’s not-quite red and not-quite brown. He ran a hand through it, before standing up and extending a hand to me.

I noticed the next few things all at once. His amazing jawline. His height. His captivating green eyes. The muscle visible in his forearms, as he wore a button up with rolled-up sleeves rather than a police uniform. It took me a second to reach out and shake his hand, he was that captivating. For one brief moment, I had a positive outlook on this whole situation. Then, reality came crashing down around me and I opened my big mouth.

“How are you old enough to be a detective?” To this day he doesn’t believe me, but I swear I meant to ask that question in my head. I didn’t even realize I had asked it aloud until he dropped my hand and took a step back.

“Is my age going to be a concern for you, Isabella?” He spoke slowly, like he was afraid I couldn’t hear him or like I would burst out in tears any second. It made me wonder what the other officers had told him about me.

“No. I was just curious.” I said. Because of his tone, I was determined to keep it together.

“Please, have a seat.” He wasn’t smiling, but he was still using that gentle tone. I wondered if he always sounded like that. Suddenly, he seemed much less attractive. I sat down across from him at the desk, where he surveyed me quietly for a moment.

“How old are you? How long have you been doing this?” Edward sighed, seeming a tiny bit frustrated, but then pulled himself together again so quickly that I wasn’t sure I hadn’t imagined it.

“If it will make you feel more confident. I am twenty-eight. I have been doing this for around four years. I have worked on six high-profile cases, as well as several local cases. I have solved every case I have worked on so far.” I nodded, deciding that I wasn’t going to give him the privilege of me being impressed. The more he spoke in that careful, calm tone, the more I could feel something slowly building up.

I wondered if all of his other cases had been young children, but there was no way I was going to ask.

All kiddin’ aside, this is an amazingly well thought out exploration of what someone who learns they aren’t who they always thought they were might go through and how it would effect them and everyone they know or ever knew or will know in the future!


ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/11848233/1/The-Watcher

The vampire world has changed now that the Vampires have realized things as they once knew them were wrong. It is only Edward’s ability to read minds that allows him to be the watcher to uncover everyone’s secrets.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Edward – Chapters: 25 – Words: 41,300 – Reviews: 677 – Favs: 179 – Follows: 270 – Updated: Mar 6 – Published: Mar 19, 2016 – Status: Complete – id: 11848233

Currently, the vampires in control were the Volturi, led by three vampires who worked together, including a group of guards who helped them maintain rules and order among all of vampire kind. The Volturi looked for vampires with special skills, such as mine, so they could use us to their advantage to keep other vampires from getting strong enough to take over.

One might wonder how that worked, when we all have free will, but the Volturi have a way of persuading you to do their bidding. They pay, plead, steal and even blackmail to get what they want from you. And sometimes, they are an escape from something you can no longer bear, such as was the case with me.

The new discovery that rocked the vampire world, was the perfect opportunity for me to part ways with my family with a plausible excuse so I would not have to be surrounded by something I had never been able to find for myself, my mate.

Oh, but the world literally tilts on its axis when Edward finally does find his mate!

I heard and saw the handle turn at the same moment that it passed across Heidi’s mind as she mentally made her presence and intentions known to me.

Edward?. . .You decent? I’m coming in. . .

Just as Heidi opened the door enough to allow us to see her, Bella’s shaking ceased, her hands moved forward, aimed at Heidi and she hissed furiously.

“He is mine!” Bella roared out as an explosion rocked forward from her outstretched hands. Heidi didn’t even have a moment to register the movement from my mate before stones, shingles, wooden beams, fabric, furnishings, glass and any other object that could be physically ripped from the ground, room and castle walls and floors and thrown in her direction, went flying creating a barrier of rubble between us.

I stood there, staring at the devastation, seeing the way that everything had been seized from its place and foundations, and seamlessly ripped up creating a perfect line in its wake as it rolled forward and heaved upwards, forming a blockade between where I stood beside Bella and where Heidi had just been standing.

My mouth gaped as wide as a fish as I started, taking in the scene.

As I gained enough of my senses to close my mouth, I turned away to look at Bella to make sure she was okay. And I realized that she no longer shook, but now just trembled slightly as her hands began to return to her sides. The swirling in her eyes, now a mild whirl, more golden than any other color. . . and only a single thought crossed my mind.

What the heck was that?

If you’ve read her pulled story, Captive, you know you’re in for one helluva ride!

Happy Friday, y’all!

    Afternoon Rita darling. To steal a line from an annoying commercial, “help! I’ve fallen into Deb’s Angel series, and I can’t get out!!” Thanks for all the new recs, but I am buried in book two of the Angel Series right now. I’ve been sneaking over and reading the entries to the Mobward Contest, but that’s about it. There are so many talented writers in this fandom! I am always just in awe. TGIF and Happy Saint Patrick’s Day. I’m heading home from work. Have a wonderful weekend. I’ll touch base over on the Angel thread after I get some more chapters read. Hugs and love!

      Howdy do, Eewee darlin’! Thanks for remindin’ me it’s Saint Patrick’s Day…I do have a touch of the Irish runnin’ through me veins, it’s just not that big a deal where I live LMAO!
      Headin’ back into Angel 2 myself now that I’ve got my Friday post up early for a change! See you there, BB!

  2. Just stopping in to say hi, but you know I’m two knees-deep into Angel Series book 2. Not much on multi tasking fics so that’s what I’m reading. Did download all the completed recs from last week and put the WIPs on alert.

  3. Uh huh, great recs, Rita, especially totteacher’s. She is an incredible writer and the fic is simply fantastic. I have read all her fics except the Captive. Speaking of Captive, do you know where I can read it? Several people have commented (including you) that the Emperor has slight shades of that fic. So, I did try to read it, but couldn’t find it anywhere. I’ll be grateful if you’ll let me know the link. Now I gotta go. I have an exam today. See ya, or rather read you soon. *hugs*

    • Rita you mind if I reply to the AMAZINGLY talented Ms. Connoisseur? I get many deleted fan fics on Perusing the Shelves.com then hunt around for fanfic alley on the site there is a very large data base there. The twilight stories are alphabetical by author. Pulled to publish, deleted, completes and some WIPS are all there. There are even several postings of the same story downloaded by different sources. I have Captive downloaded on my iPad mini now. It’s easy to download to iBooks. You will have to set up an account the list of twifics 2017 is on the home page read the instructions when you click om the link takes about 3 screens to reach data base. When you find the author/story you want (there are hundreds) click in the PDFs and it will take you to the part of the Q&A where you can then choose to download. Might sound complicated took me a few trial and errors but now I navigate easily. I browse this site often it is my go to site for stories which have been published. Who knows maybe you’ll be on their site someday.😉😉🍀🍀 I promise if you publish I’ll spend the cash on you lady.

  4. Thanks Rita 🙂

    didn’t know the first two but I read The Watcher, excellent by de way 🙂

    don’t have any rec’d as i had little time to read and when possible I was with Angel book two 🙂

    • rita01tx

      Afternoon, Zveka darlin’! I’ve had to split my day to accommodate all my updates so evenin’s are now set aside for the Angel Series LOL! Of course, I’m screwed if the updates pile up out of control, as they tend to do at least once a week *facepalm!*

    I just added The Watcher to my phone to read on the train this week. The word count is good so I can finish it during my commute to work.

    Kaleidoscope is probably too smart for me, but I’m never too old to learn new spy tricks! I’ve read the beginning chapters, and it looks like a winner.

    No new fanfic suggestions. I’m actually reading one of the books on my bedside table – Melanie’s latest It Started With a Kiss. Very sweet.

    • rita01tx

      Evenin’, Donna darlin’! You’ll really enjoy The Watcher, especially when Edward goes all feral when he meets his mate…100+ years of virginity go flyin’ straight out the window LMAO!
      As for Kalaidoscope, I don’t mind bein’ in the dark for a while so long as it not right up until the last freakin’ chapter!

  6. Still catching my breath from the Angel series readalong, even though I only made it through Book One. That was a ton of fun… I went back through your March posts to catch up on what I missed while lost in Angel-land.

    OMG Breakdown! One of my all-time top 10 – I reviewed every single chapter (now why does that sound familiar?). You’re right, there are so many scenes and moments from that story that are permanently etched in my brain. Fab.U.Lous.

    Rita, I didn’t realize you are a romance reader. Are you familiar with the Smart Bitches / Trashy Books blog and podcast? http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com I ran across them when an NPR pop culture podcast ran an episode featuring romance novels. I keep thinking I OUGHT to like romances, and I’ve collected a boatload of recs, but have yet to find one that grabs me like the best Twific does. Anyway, the podcast is tons of fun, especially the episodes when all the “bitches” are on together.

    Ooh, and Connoseiur97, many thanks for the Cedric Diggory rec. From the description I’d never have guessed Cedric has a prominent role. Even an unfinished Cedric is better than no Cedric at all!

    Oh geez, Saudade – not only vampire Edward, but DOCTOR vampire Edward. I surrender. Her other AH story “Stealing Bella” was not quite to my taste, but I’ll certainly give this one a try. And I did have to chuckle at your comment that for once it’s not a New Moon story!

    When I saw the rec for “The Watcher” I thought I was losing my mind. I’d swear I had recently read that story but the excerpt from your new one did not sound familiar … turns out I DID read another one by that title, only by DrowninginChaos, also vamp. Please tell me you rec’d that one last year sometime… Whether I’m dizzy or not, the new one sounds very intriguing!

    OK, and I actually have a new one to throw in the ring. I really don’t know where I found it, so my apologies if you’ve already rec’d it: Glitch by Silque.
    Bella Swan is a very modern 22nd century girl – with no time to waste on any man who can’t stay faithful. But what happens when her friends buy her a brand new Real Man Edward Model 2115, and she learns more about lust – and true love – than she never knew to dream of… all from the most romantic, sexy, snarky and devoted mandroid ever?

    As you see it was last updated at the end of November, but I’m willing to take the risk because this story is so much FUN! I am really enjoying the writer’s style. And there’s some serious heat too. Oh, this is also the story where she casually mentioned that her favorite movie version of Pride and Prejudice was the 2018 one with Robert Pattinson, with the Colin Firth one coming in second. I’ll tell you, between that idea and Rita’s Dior Rob Pinterest page, I’ve had a serious glitch in MY brain all day…

    • rita01tx

      Hi, Renee darlin’! The whole purpose of the readalong is the have fun and it’s good to know fun was had *fist bump!*
      Glad you left that woman some love for Breakdown ’cause I think I mights read too fast to stop for comments! I’ll have to check which will lead to a reread so it’s a win win if I didn’t!
      Nope! Never heard of Smart Bitches / Trashy Books blog and podcast and I said I USED to read historical romance…not that I read it anymore ’cause Twilight fanfiction is so much more fun!
      You’re not confuzzled…I did, indeed, rec The Watcher by Drowning in Chaos last year in July LOL!
      Glitch has been on my radar for a while but I was hopin’ it would complete before I started readin’! Got way too many WIPs goin’ to start another one that hasn’t updated in a while *sigh!*
      My Pinterest is a veritable treasure trove of RobPorn, Renee darlin’! You’ll spend hours goin’ through all the different boards but how can you resist? I certainly can’t!
