He pissed me off and then he turned me on. Spectacularly.

Yay! Manchu and Half Pint are back and they’re not alone LOL!

“It’s been weeks, Bella! I’m dying over here.” I am. I truly am.

“I don’t know about you, but two close calls since the baby was born? Too many. Blame yourself.”

“I can’t help it if I have very virile sperm!” A wail comes from the monitor hanging off my belt loop and I sigh, knowing I’m beat. “I got her.”

“Thank you!” Bella sing-songs, the pleasure evident in her voice.

Walking dejectedly to the nursery, I smile big when I see the newest member of our quickly expanding brood crying and balling her fists up. “Shh, hey now, killer, Daddy’s here.” Lifting her up, I cradle her against my chest and kiss her head, inhaling that baby smell which makes me forget all my problems. Even being denied the beautiful curves of my wife.

“Did Mommy and Daddy wake you up? Daddy’s sorry, but he just loves your mommy so much he loses it sometimes,” I whisper against her forehead, placing a kiss and soothing her awhile before finally laying her on the changing table. “But don’t tell her, it’s our secret. Can’t have her thinking I’m wrapped around her finger.”

I blow a raspberry on her bare stomach and Viv gives me a gassy smile like she knows I’m a sucker and a liar as I place a fresh diaper on her before buttoning her up and placing her back in her crib. She fusses a little, so I grab the pacifier with the mustache on it and pop it in her mouth. She looks ridiculous, but thanks to hilarious friends and family, we keep getting them as gifts. She grasps my finger like she totally understands our conversation, and I smile down at her.

Her little eyes start to close so I stroke her baby fine hair until she settles. “Who am I kidding? All my girls are evil vixens. You’ve cast a spell on me.” 

How long do you think Bella can hold out against Manchu on a mission to get laid? How do they thwart his super virile sperm when they both hate usin’ a condom? Oh, you’ll have to read to find out *wink!*

Apologies to those of you who have not read Deviant *gasp* but spoilers were inevitable in this case!

As this saint burns, so will burn my soul should I betray the oath of Omertà. I enter alive and will have to leave dead.

It’s the 1950’s and Edward has just returned home after five years in Cuba.

He leads me to a roof access door and we climb the stairs until we’re four stories above Rush Street, looking out at the city. Em unscrews the cap and tosses it over the side of the building before taking a huge swig. “There are big changes comin’ for us, Eddie.”

“Yeah?”

He points to the skyline. “All this is gonna be ours.”

I say nothing, letting him go on with the crazy talk.

“And it’s all because of you.” He comes towards me and grabs the back of my neck. “You ballsy motherfucker, you.” Pulling me close, he lowers his voice, “I know what you did.”

“You do?”

Em nods. “Dad said you did the hit. I mean, he didn’t go into detail, but you know.”

“Yeah, well . . . ” I trail off and snuff out my cig as memories from the night I put two slugs in that bastard’s skull flood my mind. “It had to be done.”

“It was fuckin’ brilliant,” Em muses, offering the bottle to me. “You weren’t even an associate at the time.”

“Nope,” I say with a laugh, thinking about how I was just some spoiled prick barely out of college. “That’s probably why no one suspected.”

“No one did.” He steps close to the ledge. “It made sense at the time when my dad said he got you out of here for your safety. He told the rest of the crew that you left for school then went to help him with his interests in Havana.”

“Ma said he sent her and Es to the ol’ country for a while.”

“Yep.” He looks out over the street. “This place went up for grabs, Eddie. Paulie and Felix had a goddamn field day. Made real names for themselves.”

“I’ll bet they did.”

We’re quiet for a bit, staring out into the city listening to the trains and sirens in the distance and the bustling traffic coming from the street below.

“Did you want to be the one who did it?”

“Yeah, I think so. I don’t know. It was so fucked up, man,” I say before striking a match and lighting another cigarette. “We were down at the morgue, ID’ing the body. My ma was goin’ wild, just losin’ it. But Uncle C, man, he was just. . . ” I’m at a loss for words letting the smoke billow out of my mouth. “Next thing I know, your dad’s pulling me into an office, saying they’ve got the guy who did it, and offering me the opportunity to handle it.”

Em nods, knowing that my father never wanted me to end up in the family business. “So you stepped up?”

“Yeah.” I hold up two fingers. “Your dad made two phone calls from the coroner’s office. The first was to Philly to confirm who pulled the trigger.”

“And the second?”

My lips curl into a sick smile. “The second person he called was Chopper.”

“Chopper? Old man Aro?”

“Yep.” I take another drag. “The night of the wake, we left the funeral home, met up with Chopper at the back of the Yards.”

“No shit?”

“No shit, man. Chopper had that greasy fuck hogtied on the slaughterhouse floor. Your dad handed me a .22, I pulled the trigger and that was that.” I shrug, feeling no remorse for my actions. No regret. No nothing.

Em spends the next few hours filling in the gaps, telling me all about what went down while I was gone all those years. We empty the bottle going back and forth as I listen to who killed who, who heads up what now and a coded rundown of who’s who in the family.

“The books are probably gonna be openin’ up soon,” Em says, looking at me to gauge my reaction at hearing that the family will be bringing in new members.

I don’t comment since I’m probably not eligible because I haven’t made my bones yet. At least none that anyone can know about. 

Mobwards are so damned irresistible and LayAtHomeMom is givin’ us one for the ages!

I’m always pleased to discover a new author and Alyscia came to me by way of Bernadette Allyson Aquino from FB group The No Rules Twilight fan fic Recs Club!

“Welcome to Paul’s Diner, I’m Bella and I will be taking care of you today.” I give them my best smile while I hand them the menus.

“Hi, thank you,” the pixie woman greets me.

“We have Pepsi products, tea, and coffee. Can I get you anything while you look through the menu?” I put my pen to paper, waiting for any responses.

“Diet Pepsi,” Pixie orders.

“Do the Dew, please,” Linebacker laughs at his own joke and the blonde scolds him.

“Jesus, Emmett, are you five? Diet Pepsi.”

“Sweet tea,” the shaggy blonde guy answers, eyeing the pixie.

“Coffee, black, freshly brewed too, please. Also, make sure the cup is clean,” the scowling copper-haired man demands in a tight velvet voice without looking up from his phone.

“Jesus, Edward, I’m sure they have clean glasses.” Pixie rolls her eyes at Scowling Guy.

“Alice, have you seen this dump? I can’t believe you talked me into this shit.”

“Yes, our place has some character to it, but I assure you that our food is amazing. Seth, our cook, is attending Seattle’s best culinary school,” I defend the diner and Seth.

“Sure,” Copper guys says skeptically.

“I’ll just get those drinks for you.” I put my pad in my apron and quickly go and get the drinks for them.

I grab all the drinks and put them on a tray and walk back over to the table. “Here we go. Diet Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, do the Dew for you, sweet tea for the gentleman, and your fresh coffee in the cleanest of the clean cups, sir.” I keep my smile fun and cute while passing the cups around. Most of the group chuckles, but mister grumpy raises his eyebrow as if challenging me.

“Are we ready to order?” I keep with my chipper self, ignoring his challenge.

“Yes, we are.” They all chatter away with what they want, and then I get to mister cranky pants.

“I want a sub, pepperoni, salami, ham, mustard and mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, and pickle on whole grain with provolone cheese. Do you think your cook can handle that?” He hands his menu to me with a cocky grin.

I raise my bitch brow with my own smirk. “I think you’ll find your sub more than satisfying, sir.”

I walk over to the window to put my order in to Seth. “Hey, for the sub give him the Bella special.” I wink.

I get to the window to pick up my order for the business group and smile, seeing that Seth did exactly what I wanted to mister grumpy copper hair.

“Here we go.” I hand the orders to everyone, the last one going down in front of him. I wait.

I hear them chuckle and laugh at him. He just stares hard at it, then looks at me with a confused expression.

“Did you seriously have my food made into a smiley face?”

“Yes, sir, I hope you enjoy your food. If you need anything, please feel free to ask.” I smile and wink and leave their table. I check my other tables and the boys, and before I know it the business group is stacking dishes, so I quickly get the check and take it over to them.

“I hope the food was up to your standards.” I put the check down on the table.

“It was the best I’ve had. This is going to be my lunch spot from now on.” Linebacker pats his stomach to drive his point home. The others nod their heads in agreement.

I wait for copper hair to respond but he keeps his face in his phone.

They give me a credit card and I quickly run it and bring their receipt and wish them a good day.

I start cleaning up another table and when I reach theirs I nearly faint at the sight of the tip. Five one hundred dollar bills with a note.

‘Best sub ever’

I sit down before my legs give out. I can get the kids clothes and more groceries. Someone upstairs is finally giving me a small break.

I’m such a sucker for a down-on-her-luck Bella catchin’ a break from a man of means…Edward, of course!

Dr. Edward Masen, a lonely, broken man, is living in Seattle. Work is the only thing he knows. Dr. Isabella Swan just moved to Seattle, working as a pediatrician. It’s hate at first sight. Unfortunately, natural disaster upends their lives … will they survive? Full summary inside. AU/AH

Tufano79 strikes again! Hell’n I’m beginnin’ to think she’s actually an Energizer Bunny in disguise *wink!*

“I love my job,” Dr. Edward Masen muttered as he sat in his Volvo. “I love my job. I really love my job.” One of the nurses waved at him as she passed him. He growled and ran his hand through hair. He did love his job, but he hated the vapid, awful nurses and single, female doctors, who saw him as a piece of meat. Someone to be conquered.

He was not some prize to be won, damn it. “Not today, bitches.” He got out of the car, swiping his messenger bag, white coat and lanyard with his ID card.

Walking into Harborview Medical Center, he dropped off his belongings in his rarely-used office and got ready for his twelve-hour shift as an emergency room attending physician. He focused his attention on doing his job, healing the sick and helping people. He kept his interactions with the female coworkers concise, but professional, though he’d rather not interact with them at all. He focused on his patients. He treated them respectfully and with the dignity they needed, especially when they were sick and scared.

He worked diligently, helping his patients and smiling warmly at them when they thanked him. This why he went into medicine, to help people. Not to fend off horny females, swatting them away like annoying gnats.

“Dr. Masen, we have a little boy with a suspicious rash,” said Shelly Cope, one of the charge nurses. “I’d send in one of the residents, but the boy is covered head-to-toe in this rash.”

“Thanks, Shelly,” Edward said, finishing his notes on his tablet. He handed her the tablet, getting the new one for the boy, Cole. He read the history and strode into the room. “Hello? My name is Dr. Edward Masen.”

“I’m Kathryn and this is my son, Cole,” the mom said. She was clearly worried and running her fingers through the boy’s hair.

“Why don’t you tell me the symptoms?” Edward asked, sitting down next to the quiet, sick little boy. Kathryn shared the symptoms and Cole piped up when Edward gave him a physical examination. “I think that you just have a mild form of malaria. It’s a heat rash.”

“I disagree,” said a petite, brunette doctor. She was dressed in a pair of gray dress pants and a light blue blouse, underneath her white doctor’s coat. She glanced at the tablet in her hand, wrinkling her nose. “Did you vaccinate your son?”

“Vaccinate?” asked Kathryn.

Edward looked at the young doctor. She was new, that was certain.

“A word, Dr. Swan?” he growled, glaring at her coat, seeing her name, Dr. I. Swan. The woman arched a brow, holding her tablet to her body. “Please?” They both gave Kathryn a clinical smile. Edward gestured to the hallway and glowered at the woman. “Who the fuck do you think you are?”

“Dr. Isabella Swan. Shelly paged me and asked me to consult on your case,” Bella said, holding out her hand. Edward sneered at her, leaving her hanging. She put her hand down, placing both of her hands on her hips. “And I would appreciate if you would not swear at me.” Edward continued to glare at her. “Look, I don’t think that Cole has malaria. He’s running a fever, which is not an indicator of heat rash. He also has never been vaccinated.” Bella showed Edward the medical records, showing that Cole did not receive any vaccinations.

“Regardless, you should have approached me since I’m his physician,” Edward snapped. “It makes me look incompetent.”

“If the shoe fits,” Bella snarled back. “You didn’t look at the whole picture. Nor did you run any cultures. You were going to release this boy back to his mom with his this highly communicable disease. I ordered Shelly to take his blood and test it, just to verify my diagnosis. If you would pull your head out of your own ass, you would have done the same.” Before he could respond, Bella turned on her heel, gliding back into the examination room and explained, calmly to the mother what she believed her son to have.

Edward was panting in the hallway, wanting to strangle Dr. Isabella Swan, regardless of how gorgeous she was.

What the fuck?

Oil and water…cats and dogs…until an earthquake brings them together in a way neither of them expected!

In a world where it has become the norm to date a supernatural being, no self-respecting woman would turn up at a party without one, would she?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 3 – Words: 5,557 – Reviews: 135 – Favs: 98 – Follows: 214 – Updated: 12h ago – Published: Jul 24 – id: 12584528

My vampire rental arrived on my doorstep at twilight on what had been an unusually sunny day for September.

I opened my door and stared at the man whose only resemblance to his photograph was the uncomfortable expression on his face. It was as if he could smell something particularly unpleasant, such as dog excrement.

His eyes were shut tight so I had a quick sniff at my clothes. Not detecting anything untoward, I regarded the vision of beauty in front of me.

His long, bronze hair was in complete disarray, the very tips catching the last rays of the setting sun and forming a halo atop his head. His pale skin was flawless and smooth, his lips red and full – even though they were currently pressed firmly together – and his lashes were long enough to make girls the world over green with envy. He was obviously adept at applying his makeup for I couldn’t tell where he’d used it and where he hadn’t.

He took a deep breath in, sighed and opened his blood red eyes.

“Miss Bella Swan?”

His voice was deep and soft, and it wrapped around my name, enveloping it just like the red velvet of my cloak did my body on chilly evenings.

“Aren’t you going to invite me in?” he asked.

I shook my head and came back to my senses. “Of course,” I said, realising my error and moving to one side. I waved an arm in front of my body. “Do come in.”

He glided past me, mumbling something about humans having no sense of self-preservation, and placed his holdall on the floor beside the sofa. He turned and looked around my apartment.

“You only have the one room,” he said.

“Yes. Well, this and a bathroom.”

“Where is your bed?”

“The sofa pulls out.”

“Oh.”

“Oh? Oh no! I didn’t think about where you would sleep.”

“I won’t be needing a bed.”

“Of course you won’t. Perhaps you’d like to hang upside down from one of the joists, or I could empty my blanket chest if you like. It’s quite long. If you bend your knees, you might just fit.”

“You really have no idea, do you?”

“Not really, no.”

“I don’t sleep hanging upside down. Nor do I sleep in a coffin. Vampires don’t sleep at all.”

“You keep going all night?”

He raised an eyebrow. “We have been known to, yes.”

I didn’t know whether to laugh or blush. I did the latter. “So, what will you do while I’m sleeping?”

“Watch you.”

“No! No way! That’s creepy.”

“I’m a vampire. It’s my job to be creepy.”

“Please tell me you don’t mean that.”

“Isn’t that why you hired me?”

Had it not been for a very sweet PM from DataByteDL-FangirlinGrandma, I mighta waited until Moosals hit the complete button on her latest endeavor! Boy, am I glad she persuaded me not to wait…thanks, Dee darlin’ *HUGS!*

Okay, so it’s another New Moon AU…shoot me LOL!

The scratching of Alice’s pencil halted and I turned to look at her. Her face was blank and her eyes glazed. She was seeing something beyond the lounge and judging by her emotions it wasn’t something good.

I suspected it was Edward, she had seen a few visions of him when he first left. She was waiting for the moment he decided to return to Bella, we all were, but as time passed the visions stopped. He had either found a way to avoid her sight or he had ceased making decisions altogether. That had worried her, and she had not spoken of it to Esme or Carlisle, they had been with him the longest and were both having difficulty dealing with his absence.

She came back to the present with a muffled cry, her emotions were a crippling mess of shock and horror.

The sound of her cry brought Esme from the guest room and Emmett from the kitchen. Only Rosalie and Carlisle were absent, Carlisle was at work and Rosalie was in the garage behind the house, she would not have heard Alice’s cry from that distance.

“Alice, what is it?” I asked. Pulling her into my lap and comforting her as best I could.

“Bella.”

The effect of that one word was instant. Esme clapped a hand to her mouth and Emmett shot around the couch to squat in front of us both.

“What about her?” he asked. “What’s happened to her?” He gripped her arm with such force Alice flinched.

“I didn’t look, the vision came to me on its own,” she said impatiently. “But that doesn’t matter, Bella’s been hurt, seriously hurt. I don’t know what happened to her, but she’s in hospital and it looks bad.”

Esme let out a small sob and wavered on her feet, Emmett moved to her side and put his arm around her shoulders, steadying her.

He turned to Alice. “Did you see Charlie or Renee there, if she’s in hospital they should be there, right?”

“I can’t see anyone else there, she’s all alone.”

“Try and search for Charlie’s future,” I suggested. “Maybe he was hurt too. It could have been a car accident or something like that.”

Again she slipped into the blank gaze that accompanied her visions but this time she snapped out of it much faster.

“I can’t see anything, there’s nothing but black for Charlie, and I don’t know Renee well enough to be able to pinpoint her future.”

“That’s okay,” I reassured her. “You can’t be expected to see everything.”

Emmett was calling the hospitals in the Forks vicinity trying to track Bella down. He finally found her in the Olympic Medical Center. He was currently trying to pry information about her condition, his wheedling tone slowly changing to one of irritation.

“Well fuck you too.” He finally roared into the receiver and threw it down. “They won’t tell me anything as I’m not ‘family’,” he sneered the word.

“Maybe Carlisle will have more luck when he gets home,” Esme suggested.

Just then we heard the squealing of brakes and the skidding sounds of Carlisle’s Mercedes making the turn into our driveway at high speed.

He ran through the front door and caught Esme as she launched herself into his arms sobbing.

He smoothed her hair and led her to the couch then crouched down to face Alice. “What did you see?”

Though he was outwardly calm his emotions were a raging confusion of fear and pain.

“She was in a hospital bed, her chest was bandaged and she wasn’t awake. There were machines and…” She lost control of her emotions and sobbed into my chest.

“Okay, it’s okay Alice, I will call the hospital and see if I can get more information. The rest of you, pack what you need, we’re going to Forks.”

Carlisle picked up the phone and the rest of us dispersed to gather anything we may need to take with us. I went to the safe in Carlisle’s office and grabbed the false ID cards and passports for us all. In an envelope at the back were two other sets of identification in the name of Bella Cullen and Bella Masen. I grabbed those too, it was best to be prepared.

When we reconvened in the lounge Carlisle was just finishing his call. “Yes, thank you for your help. We will be there as soon as we can.”

Carlisle hung up the phone and turned to us with a serious expression. For a moment I thought we were too late, that Bella had died. Apparently, Esme thought the same as she shook her head jerkily, whispering. “No, Carlisle, please don’t say it.”

He took her in his arms. “Not Bella, Charlie.” We let out a collective sigh of relief then immediately felt guilty.

Charlie was dead. Bella’s father. What had happened to them?

“Jasper,” Carlisle said turning to me. “I need you to get in touch with Jenks, we need a document naming us Bella’s guardians in Renee absence.”

“Where is Renee?” Esme asked.

“I don’t know.” Carlisle said rubbing his forehead wearily. “I spoke to one of Bella’s doctors and he said they hadn’t been able to contact her.”

“Oh, I hope she’s okay,” Esme fretted.

“We don’t have time to discuss this now,” Emmett said impatiently. “We need to go. Are we going to drive or get a flight?”

“Flying would be faster,” Esme said. “Alice can you check the weather conditions.”

She blanked out again for a moment, but came back with a relieved smile. “We’ll be fine. It will be early morning by the time we get to Forks and the day is overcast.”

I called Jenks and arranged for the documentation to be delivered to our Forks house the next morning. He griped about the speed but after some well chosen words and thinly veiled threats he was more agreeable.

It was already dusk here so we wouldn’t have to stick to the shadows at the airport. We gathered our bags and headed out to the cars when Rosalie spoke up.

“What about Edward?”

Shit.

OH,MY.GOD! This is such a great read! It certainly kept me readin’ into the wee hours for days on end LOL!

What stories have enthralled you through the lazy days of summer?

Happy Sunday, y’all!

              Thanks Zveka for telling us about cupcakeriot’s new story supernormal. I read all 20 chapters yesterday (just 12,000 words so far), and I’m going to follow and review the rest as she posts them. Her previous story derivation was excellent. She’s so prolific.

              And Rita – Rent-A-Vampire is a funny little gem. Great rec!

              • rita01tx

                Glad you like it, Donna darlin’! We need an update or two, though *wink!* I’ve just cleared out my inbox to where I can finally read the three entries written for The Age Of Edward 2017! First time I’ve followed that contest instead of waitin’ for the authors to post their entries on their profiles!

              • Still didn’t find time to start to read rent a vampire …

                Glad you like her new story Donna, I loved derivation and Nova is one of my favorite stories

    Adding them all.
    Question — I came across a story and want to know if anyone has read it. Word count 1,337,937 !! People Like Us by justginger. I’ve never seen a story that big. Not gonna tackle unless I hear whether it’s worth 3 weeks of my life. ????? How do write something like that?????

    • rita01tx

      And that’s not even countin’ the outtakes and sequel that’s 27 chapters and still not complete, Bev darlin’!
      But, no, I haven’t tackled it, either, so I can’t say YAY or NAY!

    • rita01tx

      As for large stories, TwiReader81 has a trilogy I’m too scared to tackle!
      1) Summer Vacation has 600 chapters,
      2) Summer Vacation: Back to Class has 739 chapters and there was no way I could get a pdf, it was so big!
      3) Summer Vacation: Happily Ever After has 331 chapters and countin’ *eyeroll!*
      I’m curious if anyone else has seen a fic with more chapters!?!?

      • I’m not quite sure how big it is, but I think that Emancipation Proclamation and all its extras may be the largest fic I’ve tackled. I think. Unless it comes by way of recommendation, I tend to run away from monster fics these days.

    • eewee333

      Hi bevey99. I read this story a few years ago. I enjoyed it very much. It is a BDSM fic and there are a lot of spelling/grammatical errors, but not enough to keep me from reading it. It’s worth it.

    • Hello Lady 99 I read this a few years back now. I liked it so much I keep the sequel on update alert since . The latest chapter updated Memorial Day weekend it had been so long I had to go back and reread . It is epic with angst,sex,love,sex and lots of characters. It is worth a read but sequel is only updated like twice a year. If you read the Grand or Quiet Storm Trilogies you may enjoy this too. Hope your having a ass kicking summer🌞☮Beth

          I read it Hope Spring from same writer and I had impression that she don’t know how to finish the story, she was adding a lot of drama … hope she is not doing this in family like ours 🙂

    That Deviant epilogue was a pleasant surprise! And the ending about Edward thinking he could get her pregnant ‘that way’ Haha! If anyone could – Manchu could! I read on facebook that planetblue and Honeybeemeadows met at the TFMU in Las Vegas and are going to write a fic together sometime soon which is pretty exciting. I wonder what combo name they are going to call themselves.

    I’m following and quite like Burning Saints. Her Edward and Bella are going to be a powerhouse couple.

    All your suggestions look good! The one I’ve been reading this week is one chapter away from finished – Even In Death by drotuno: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12270478/1/Even-In-Death

    I shied away from reading chapter by chapter like I usually do on her stories because it seemed like it was going to be a sad one.

    Good job getting under the wire!

    • rita01tx

      Oh, Donna darlin’! Soon as I plow through the updates in my inbox, I’m divin’ into Deviant for a delicious reread *woot woot!*
      LayAtHomeMom is an awesome author and Burning Saints is totally ownin’ my ass, right now, just like Bitsy is ownin’ Eddie’s ass LMAO!
      Even in Death is marked complete and, sad as it started out, I KNEW she’d give us a super HEA and she sure did!

    • For a collab name is submit BlueMeadows for consideration. Donna I see there are going to be two free screenings of Good Time up your way. You going? I loved it. Deb is one of my favorite fandom authors, but I was waiting for EiD to complete before I dived in.

      • dpennell007

        Thanks for the head’s up! I’ll have to check the Good Time screenings out. If I can manage it, I will go. Good collab name by the way.

        I just started chapter 13 of EiD. It’s excellent! Now that I know it’s complete I can stop dragging out the read.

      • rita01tx

        Oh, I completely agree BlueMeadows would be a fuck awesome collab name…PB…HoneyBee? You guys checkin’ this out???

        • dpennell007

          My husband outright refuses to go with me because I made the mistake of mentioning the star of Twilight, but the theater is ONE block from Harvard Square on the Red Line (the MBTA that I take to work when my usual commuter rail ride to work cancels). I just called my girlfriend who lives near Fenway Park and if she gets back from Philadelphia on time she said she’d go with me. I am thinking even if she can’t make it, I might go by myself. My husband will drop me off and pick me up from the train near our house. I downloaded a pass because I am thinking positive.

          http://iffboston.org/content/uploads/GOODTIME_epass.pdf

          Thank you SO much! I’ve never done anything like this, and it looks like a GOOD TIME!!

          • rita01tx

            Aaargh! It’s not comin’ to my neck of the woods until October 12th!

            • I watched the trailer of Good Time after seeing your notes – thanks for the reminder. Doesn’t look like my cup of tea but will I see it? Duh. I loved The Rover, btw, esp. Rob’s performance playing off of Guy Pearce. Lost City of Z was xlnt too. The BIG news, however – dun dun duuunnnnhhh – is that on the 8/08 episode of Charlie Rose on PBS, he had a 20-minute interview with the Safdie Brothers AND ROB! I don’t think I’ve seen Rob as relaxed and engaged in an interview in … ever? Charlie Rose often has filmmakers and stars or playwrights and stars on his show. And of course Rob always shines best in group interviews with his collaborators. It’s delightful to see him develop and express his own path in the world. (Even if I still think he was prettier in Eclipse… he’s definitely on the skinny side now, makes his jaw look too sharp. But his hair was …delicious. OK OK, stop objectifying the poor guy…)

              • rita01tx

                I’ve read and watched everything I can get my hands on, Renee darlin’, and, yeah, the Charlie Rose interview is my favorite so far! Gorgeous man only gets more gorgeous and his hair and sideburns were exactly my favorite style / length on him *woo hoo!*
                To be honest, none of the films Rob has ever made, includin’ the Twilight Saga, are films I would have gone to see had he not been in them! Havin’ said that, I’m more often than not completely surprised and enthralled by his choices and especially in his performances!
                So lookin’ forward to seein’ whatever he decides to make in the future!
                By the way…did you see that short film he did for GQ called Fear and Shame? He wrote it himself and his inner dialogue had me in stitches! Reminded me of the first time I saw Woody Allen doin’ stand up! Completely neurotic but funny as hell!

              • rita01tx

                Oh, and have you noticed how Rob literally soaks up every word Josh and Benny say about the whole process of makin’ their movies? He did the same thing when he interviewed with the other directors he’s worked with!
                I may not live to see it but I predict Rob will make a mighty fine director some day!

  7. Yay, look what’s in my inbox! Happy last day of July. Summer seems to be flying by. I finally got around to reading Ethan Church. I could kick myself for waiting so long to read this gem.

Contest entry for the Control. Possess. Seduce. Contest. She has a companion fic called The Girl with the Sugar Lips, in progress and it helps fill in some gaps/answer burning questions from the original fic. I have a rec, It’s only 15 chapters so it’s a quick read, but I’m not sure how to describe it. For the first few chapters it’s legit one of the funniest fics I’ve ever read. Then it turned sad and then the levity returned mixed in with hope. It’s https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5380400/1/ How My Life was Ruined in 14 Days By: moon.witche

    Hi Rita! I sure have missed your posts. Thanks for all the wonderful recs this week. I just finished Deviant last night. I reread the whole thing and that epilogue! OMG! PlanetBlue can sure write some hot, hot, loving.

    I have broken my own rule and am reading a WIP! I made the mistake of reading the first chapter (I’m a sucker for NM fics) and I’ve been hooked ever since. What Have We Done? by Ladylibre She updates 3 times a week (sometimes more) and it is just gripping. It’s from Rosalie’s POV and I must say I have a new respect for that character. You should catch up. Believe me it won’t take you long.

    Back to work for me. Have a wonderful day and week. See you on FB.

    Love and hugs, E

  9. Ok so I want to know what the hell went on in Las Vegas last weekend????🎉🍾🍻🍷🍸🍹 First Planetblue throws some Fuckin Manchu our way …I jumped … Yeah jumped up and down and damn that shit hurt. But I love Manchu *** sigh***Then drum roll- Cara No posts a new story on FFNet!!! LyricalKris completed two stories! I just should have driven the 5 hours to Vegas and stormed the Venetian like the crazy fan girl I am and bought all a round or three to thank the authors and fellow twific addicts for all they share with me. I’m sure we will be receiving a few more amazing stories soon.
    A few of these I’m following, Shakey is good I do so love Dr. Loveward ❤️ I’ve been reading to many to mention but I did want to share with the class a movie I may have watched 3 times in 2 days. Me before You it has everything I love English country side , castle, quirky leading lady, hot lead actor Sam Clafin did I mention Sam Clafin ? It had me distracted from Ed and Bella for a few hours but I can so see this being a twific also, good job jojo moyes. It’s worth a look for Sam Clafin he’s the same age as Mr Pattinson and my new movie crush. The movie is free to watch with Amazon prime or tv or fire stick it somewhere ?. Remember when we made that list of hot British actors when we did the read along for Angel Sam should be there definitely.
    I’m off to read I’m only sleeping-cause I won’t be starting a fic this late😴😴😴😴😴. ☮Beth

      OMG! No tellin’ what those crazy ladies got up to…what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Well, unless it’s new fics and those they WILL share with us *woo hoo!*

    • Let me just throw in an Amen! on Sam Claflin, Beth. I first noticed him in the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. Whew, did I notice him! I wasn’t thrilled overall with “Me Before You” but it was engaging enough and he was certainly pretty. Have you seen “My Cousin Rachel” yet? Based on a Daphne du Maurier novel, IMO better material and more room to showcase his talent.

      Catch My Breath appealed to me, so I took a quick look at the reviews of the last chapter, and sure enough – I read and reviewed it December 2015. At least I’m consistent in what I like!

        I saw that, Donna darlin’! Already got Ipsita’s gorgeous banner on standby for when I’m ready to rec it here on RA!

    • Zveka my friend, thank you for the recs. I had CMB on my the already, but not ARAT. While I was on the author’s page, I grabbed a few of her other fics that sounded good too.

  12. The first Age of Edwards dropped yesterday, it was a very good day. Finished I’m only Sleeping it got a bit “WTF “🤷‍♀️for me when Bella spent years at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. That cracked me up. At least Edward got a New Moon take off given back to him. Last night I read MERIT man by Chanse Lowell

      Three links landed you in RA jail, Beth darlin’…just bailed you out, as I always will so no worries! But that’s why it had to wait until I woke up to moderate before you could see it LOL!
      I followed MERIT Man for a long time and, while I loved her hot, sexy Prisonward…the UST was powerful, I was purely disappointed in the last chapters! Not that the sex wasn’t hot as sin when he finally got out but all of a sudden he morphs into a Daddyward? Did not compute for me…sorry!
      Haven’t dived into any of your other recs yet but at least you’ve put me on alert for them *fist bump!*

    • dpennell007

      I followed and reviewed Corrupting Influence chapter by chapter as posted. Even though she pushed a few of my buttons, and I found the characters frustrating at times, I’m not sorry I read it.

  13. Rita my dear, it’s so great to have you surface again! With a fistful of great recs, too!

    OK, OK, I will get right on “Deviant” – that manip alone is reason enough! Am I the last person in North America that hasn’t read it?

    Have never cared for Mobward stories (OK, except for the epic EP dog-years ago), but I’m with you on the “down on her luck Bella” stories.

    Huh, I thought I remember Tufano79 speculating about an upcoming earthquake story with vampire Cullens… or maybe I’m just confused. But then, you did toss us a couple vampire stories. I already tore through the existing chapters of Rent A Vampire – wonderfully done. Charming that until it was time for him to feed, she thought he was faking being a vampire.

    And how on earth have I never read “I’m Only Sleeping”? Simaril’s “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” is one of my all-time favorites, a rare four-star rating. It has everything – a New Moon story with a unique twist, where for delicious reasons Bella doesn’t remember the Cullens. Simaril perfectly balances hilarious moments (the Cullens trying to fake “warming up” before going on a run with Bella) with a fabulous emotional connection between E&B having to be built from scratch, a genuinely kick-ass Bella, and eventually some serious angst. Oh yes, and an HEA.
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7330541/1/Out-of-Sight-Out-of-Mind

    All of which is a long-winded way to say I have to get “I’m Only Sleeping” off my TBR list and into my eyeballs!

    Let’s see, what have I been reading? I recently finished – and adored – “Isabella”, one of the most masterfully written fics ever. Isabella is a financially struggling but genteel young woman – a la an Austen or Bronte heroine – who meets a mysterious stranger… Sooo well done, going to go back and review every chapter soon. Pretty sure you rec’d this one but here’s the link anyway.
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10087055/1/Isabella

    Loving the WIP “Out of the Darkness”, where Edward is a fallen angel whose second chance is serving as Bella’s guardian. 31 chapters in and updates regularly. I know you rec’d this one so I won’t repeat the link.

    I’m pretty sure I picked up “Saudade” from your recommendation, too. I was recently a bit disappointed by the sanitized sex scene in a recent update, because it had such potential to be sizzling. The sweetness of their connection is well worth it anyway.

    Love, love, loving “The Monster in Me” by Edward’s Eternal. It got some excellent recognition as a one-shot in the Control. Possess. Seduce contest, now continued. Interesting twist that Edward is Carlisle and Esme’s biological child, a hybrid like she-who-must-not-be-named. Six chapters in, the last couple updates have been a bit slower – entirely understandable due to the author’s current health challenges. No lack of sizzle in this one – no sirree!
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11837170/1/The-Monster-in-Me

    I’m still pimping “Glitch”, where Edward is a “mandroid”. Completely delightful, and she started updating again, driven by guilt from my shamelessly begging reviews.

    I hope your summer is going well, Rita – in the Pac NW we had a very uncivilized heat wave a week ago that has continued with higher-than-normal temps and horrible air quality due to all the Western wildfires. Praying for rain in a few days, though.

      {Apologies for my late response! It’s all Rob’s fault!}
      Out of Sight, Out of Mind was actually the fic I was goin’ for on Simaril’s profile…well, until the summary for I’m Only Sleeping sucked me in LOL!
      Glad you’ve been enjoyin’ some of the fics I’ve rec’d and even the ones I haven’t! Don’t think Isabella was one of mine since I haven’t been into period pieces in a very long time!
      As for Saudade, I was all WTF? about that lukewarm lemon, too! Wonder if she has a juicier version posted somewhere else? I don’t think she said *sigh!*
