The Golden Onion

Our regular readers will know that for the last few years we have celebrated the end of the year with choosing our personal favourite completed story here at Fan Fiction Fridays.  We make a short list of stories that have held each of our hearts throughout the year and then choose the story that held our hearts the most.  The things we look for are simple, a story that captures our imagination, characters we can fall in love with, the love connection between Edward and Bella that we feel is so important and that element of magic that makes us keep reading and reading (or if it is a WIP when you read it, makes you pounce on the new chapters like a thirsting woman in the desert!).

This year we have chosen The Cullen Legacy by pattyrose.  This story was a firm favourite of ours from the first chapter onwards.  The riveting first chapter that was set in present time threw all these questions at us, and then how we gradually learnt Edward and Bella’s history and heartbreak.  This story has everything we look for in Fan Fiction – wonderfully written, exceptional plot, fabulous characters.  Cared and AllyVera reviewed this story way back in April and it was the first story wrote a co-review on – we loved it that much!  You can read our review here.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank pattyrose for sharing this little piece of reading heaven with us!

A Personal Note From Five of TheFicSix…

This year of the FicSix would never have happened if it wasn’t for Cared Cullen. She has been our heart, our guiding light, and in so many ways, our visionary.  We hope the authors she has helped to promote and the readers who have discovered treasures through her passion will join us in a heartfelt round of cheering, applause and the raising of glasses to our dear friend Cared.

We love you, Cared!!

IMPORTANT NEWS: It has been a great privilege to all six of us to share the stories we read and loved every Friday without fail through the entirety of 2013. The time has come, though, for us to rest our keyboards. We won’t be posting another FanFiction Friday on Rob Attack. We will still be active individually in the Fandom, but sadly no longer here as the FicSix – although we are still the best of friends, and hope that you will remain our friends too. Seek us out wherever you can find us. We will always look back on this time spent with you in this small sector of the Twilight universe as a very happy one. In Meyer’s words, “No matter how perfect the day is, it always has to end.” Thank you all for sharing our perfect Fridays. The FicSix ~ AllyVera, Cared, Gingerandgreen, ilovealion, Midnight Cougar, Wiltshire Glo.

Wicked Games by ClaireBamboozle

*Made by Nina Rose*

*Made by Nina Rose*

Wicked Games ~ She has watched him for years, he is grace, beauty and goodness and she is a sinner. It isn’t just the river of Hell fires which separates them. Given a chance will Bella corrupt the one pure thing in her life?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Supernatural/Fantasy – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 7 – Words: 16,521 – Reviews: 88 – Favs: 43 – Follows: 31 – Updated: 06-29-13 – Published: 06-09-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9372426

ClaireBamboozle certainly pegged this short story correctly when she selected the genre as being Supernatural/Fantasy, for that’s exactly what her fantastical tale is – from beginning to end.  Edward, full of beauty and grace, is an angel standing guard outside the gates of Heaven, while Isabella is one of the damned on the far side of the great divide.  It would be hard to think of any two beings across all of Heaven and Earth Hell, who are less likely to form a bond – but they do – and it irrevocably alters their existence.  Isabella lives – perhaps I should say exists – in a place where cruelty and wickedness are rife, as the concubine of the creature she calls the Big D.  Yes, the Devil himself!  She prefers to be solitary in her suffering rather than allow herself care for someone she may later witness tortured, but there is someone her thoughts and eyes linger on…

The divide stretches wide between us.  A raging see of seething, bubbling fire.  Brimstone hangs heavy in the smoky air, stinging my eyes.  He is unaffected, serene, pure.

For so long, decades most likely I’ve watched him with an unwavering eye.  Studied his form and cataloged it all.  I’ve memorized every line of his carved physique, the angles of his ethereal face.  The sharpness of his jaw.  His full lips that purse when he is deep in though and those green eyes which pierce the vast distance between us and make my blackened heart soar.  He is perfection.  When he turns my way I fee desire flame within me, even if he doesn’t notice me.

I want him. Badly.

I have spent years hoping for a chance to corrupt and bring him to my side.  But I can’t have him.  He is the gatekeeper to a realm I dare not enter; trusted and true.  I know I hold no appeal to his sight.  To him I am invisible…

Or so she thinks.

Now you might assume this Angelward is about as far from canon Edward as you can get, but no…he still has those essential qualities that make my knees go weak.  For instance, while it’s Isabella’s soul that is damned…not his, and there is no car spinning on ice or rogue vampire after her blood, Edward ever the protector, is drawn to save Isabella – this time from eternal torment.  Will a leap of faith be enough to bridge the gap between their worlds?

Read this sinfully good story to find out!

She Speaks Fear and Truth by ericastwilight

Erica

*Made by emerald_rosalie*

She Speaks Fear and Truth ~ She’s haunted daily, but learns to deal with her gift, helping those in need. He hides behind his opinions, seeking closure, barely living. When their worlds collide can they help each other. A story of loss, love and betrayal with a supernatural twist.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Supernatural/Hurt/Comfort – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 14 – Words: 45,467 – Reviews: 1,679 – Favs: 984 – Follows: 649 – Updated: 09-04-10 – Published: 10-10-09 – Status: Complete – id: 5434481

To be fair to potential readers, I have to share straight away this story deals with the aftermath and memories of a child’s death.  Let me explain: this story is Twilight fanfic, but it’s also very close to the TV show Ghost Whisperer, with a little Ghost Hunters thrown in to deepen the plot.  I have long admired ericastwilight’s skill as an author so it’s no surprise how this sensitive subject is written with grace and respect.

Professor Cullen is a university lecturer by profession, he is the head of a team of paranormal investigators by obsession, but his daughter has been missing for three years and the heartbreaking, overwhelming role in his life is that of grieving father.  At first Edward appeared to me as something of an oxymoron: in his work with the Denver Paranormal Society he revels in debunking paranormal occurrences, yet he sets up recording equipment nightly in the hope of hearing his daughter.  I’m no psychoanalyst, and so don’t ask me to explain his behaviour, but I did come to understand it and admire the loving father that he is – down to his very soul.  Sadly, Edward is forced to learn and accept the terrible truth upon coming face to face with ghost whisperer Bella…

EPOV

I didn’t know how much time had passed as I sat on a stool behind the podium. A cool draft swept around me, and I felt my pants leg pull lightly. 

Great. Now my fucking head was playing tricks on me again. The pull on my pants increased.

“Hayley.” I sobbed.

“Was that her name?”

I jumped slightly from her loud voice in the quiet room. I looked up at her and my anger returned.

“You should know. I’m sure you’ve done your research.” I got up from my stool and slammed my briefcase shut. I turned to erase a large chalkboard behind me, trying my best to ignore her. 

“Wait,” she said quietly. I stopped. I had no idea why I did. Maybe it was the pleading nature behind her request. “She wants to tell you my name.” I turned, my anger flaring. But instead of meeting my eyes, she was looking at something on the chalkboard.

My hand shook as wet letters started to form in the chalk dust.

Bella.

I love you, Mr. Toad.

I sobbed, dropping the eraser in my hand. The sounds leaving my lips disturbed the quiet peace in the room, causing the writing to still.

“She couldn’t find a way to talk,” Bella said softly. “Not even for your recordings.”

As the letters started to dry, more took their place.

I’m sorry, Daddy.

“No, baby,” I whispered. “I am.”

“Professor Cullen, I’m sorry about my outburst. At first, I assumed the worst –”

I shook my head, because I wasn’t sorry. I needed this. “Why can’t she talk?” I looked up at Bella just as she cringed.

“Every time she tries, water comes out,” she said with a sigh.

I sobbed and fell to my knees. Bella came to my side but kept her distance, just hovering.

“Until now,” I murmured, “she’s only been considered missing.”

This beautiful story made me cry, but amazingly, given the sensitive plot line, it never made me despair.  She Speaks Fear and Truth is complete and each of its 14 chapters are packed full of love – and eventually hope and light.

Heat by PrincessRachael

OfficialBanner_zps625cfd3d

*Made by Cricrila Redlips*

Heat ~ Edward is an Alpha wolf of a dying pack in a world where she-wolves no longer exist. The responsibilities of too many lives rest on his shoulders and he’s running out of time. Edward/Bella. Graphic lemons, violence, sensitive themes. Mature.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Supernatural – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 32 – Words: 128,473 – Reviews: 3,405 – Favs: 1,374 – Follows: 1,986 – Updated: 10-12-13 – Published: 06-29-13 – id: 9441302

Rita10tx recommended this fic in the comments on the Maps To The Stars post, and since that girl knows a good fic when she reads it, it zoomed to the top of my TBR list.

Now, this is where I ask you to trust me, set aside any preconceived ideas you have of the form you like your Edwards to take, because ladies…this Edward is a wolf!  Yes, that’s right – a wolf!  Edward, Bella, and the rest of  favourite characters are still mythical creatures, although, vampires don’t exist… not in their world.  It’s amazing to me, and indeed, a testament to PrincessRachael’s talent and insight as a writer, that even though Edward’s ability to shapeshift and its inherent consequenses are integral and essential to the plot, he exudes those essential qualities to make him – the man and the wolf – an Edward I can love.

Talking of the plot: the shapeshifters are in danger of eventual extinction if the abundance of males fail to find mates and produce female cubs.  A she-wolf in heat is about as rare as Trekkie at a Twilight convention, so let’s what happens when Bella quite literally runs into Edward’s neck of the woods…

It was a she-wolf!

He couldn’t believe his eyes. A she-wolf in his territory. After all this time, after decades of searching, one had suddenly turned up in his own backyard! It was absolutely unbelievable, the most farfetched notion he could have imagined. And if any member of his pack would have reported her existence, he wouldn’t have believed it. But there she stood, clear as daylight in the murky darkness, yet seemingly fragile as an apparition. He feared she would unexpectedly disappear just as quickly as she had arrived.

The spotless white she-wolf was watching them from her perch in the furthest reaches of the tree. She was the most flawless animal Edward had ever beheld. Her eyes were the color of whiskey, not quite gold, nor that dull blond that was typical in so many wolves, but sparkling with hints of amber and saffron. Even from this distance, Edward could tell she was about half his size. In general, she-wolves were smaller than their male counterparts, but regardless, her little frame captivated him. And the way she paced nervously from branch to branch made Edward growl in response. He was instantly protective and ravenous for her at the same time.

The intensity in her eyes and the scent from her body was part of what was affecting Jasper so zealously. Clearly she was up in the tree because the gray wolf’s behavior had frightened her. She was now looking desperately around for a place of escape. She seemed oblivious to the true cause of Jasper’s unease. And perhaps she didn’t know, Edward reasoned as he felt his own body start to sink into the same depths where Jasper now swam. His wolf instincts were beginning to completely take over.

The she-wolf was in heat.

On one level Heat is a simple Edward and Bella love story, but then layer in the relationship between their wolves, the volatile relationship with Sam’s rabid pack and Aro’s crazed one.  Also add to the Petri dish, the scientific work to solve fertility problems, the possible extinction of the species, personal tragedy, a mad scientist intent on industrial espionage, brutal, unethical animal hunters, and turn up the heat with hot lemons.  All in all, it’s an explosive fic and a tremendous read!

*Please not the author’s warning of violence and sensitive themes.*

Please Rescue Me  ~ Edward was a shy young man when he fell in love for the first time. He learned the hard way that love shouldn’t hurt, right? When Bella cames into his life, he was at the end of his rope. Can she really offer him salvation? Can he dare to hope?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Hurt/Comfort – Edward • Bella – Chapters: 50 – Words: 77,266 – Reviews: 2,033 – Favs: 519 – Follows: 398 – Updated: 03-20-12 – Published: 11-21-11 – Status: Complete – id: 7569689

When my lovely colleague Cared first mentioned an Unusalward post my brain kicked into overdrive at which stories I have read that would fit best under this category, and in fairness, there isn’t really many, but the ones that you do read tend to stick out and the story I have chosen to share with you today is absolutely no exception.

I have read hundreds of Twilight Fan Fics and this story is the only one I have ever read with this premise for an Edward. This story made me cry and feel a little hopeless for our Edward, but ultimately, it is an amazing love story (just a very different one).

Please Rescue Me  bursts out at you at the very first chapter. I think the best way for you to get a glimpse of Edward is straight from chapter one (EPOV)…

“Bruises.

I hate having to find ways to cover the bruises.

This time, I’m not sure how to cover the bruise you left on me.

A hand print is clearly visible across my cheek.

I can’t call in sick again this week, but there is no reasonable explanation for the mark you left on me. Especially when all I asked was if she had any laundry that needed to be done.

She flew into a rage and screamed at me for being so weak as to want to take care of her laundry. I thought that’s what nice boyfriends did for their girlfriends.

She punched my chest and smacked my head.

She slapped me across the face then demanded that I fuck her.

I wasn’t even hard. How could I be hard when she just assaulted me?

I thought that I loved her, but this morning I realized love shouldn’t hurt. Not this much. Not this way.

But, I can’t leave her because she’s made sure I have nowhere to go. She’s destroyed my relationship with my parents; my sister has to sneak phone calls to me at work once a week just to check on me. My friends have all given up on me.

I am alone.

I’m lucky she allows me to work. But someone has to support her habits after my parents cut me off financially once I told them that I wouldn’t leave her. That was back when I still thought that she loved me, before I realized this is who she really is. I would take it all back now if I could.

I have no idea where to turn or how I can get out of this mess. But, I have to because there’s nothing left for me to endure, except death.

Someone, please rescue me.”

Um, yeah. And before you panic the “she” you read about above is not Bella! Bella shows up in the second chapter, and for Edward, meeting her is the turning point of his life as he knows it.

This story is full of angst, and it is definitely a story that comes with lots of warnings but if you can handle angst, it is such a wonderful story about a man who has lost all his self-esteem, dignity and power – but through one woman who fights for him and loves him unconditionally, he is able to gain it all back. I fell a little bit in love with Batteredward (as he is nicknamed) and he holds a special place in my heart!

*Please make sure to note the author’s warnings that come with Chapter One*

Double Struck by Honeybeemeadows

*made by Deebell*

*Banner made by Deebelle Onefic*

Double Struck ~ I found her on top of a mountain. And I wasn’t even trying.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Mystery – Bella · Edward – Chapters: 5 – Words: 7,718 – Reviews: 399 – Favs: 268 – Follows: 528 – Updated: 10-10-13 – Published: 09-19-13 – id: 9698747

Genres: Adventure, Alternate Universe, Suspense, Romance

When I read the simple yet intriguing summary, and then immediately afterward the first chapter of Double Struck, I was struck with the feeling that this mysterious Edward is “more.”  That he has some kind of unusual “sixth sense” or “sight” and also that he is a complex guy – I must admit I was truly fascinated by him and the unique storyline, and still am. It’s only five chapters in, and I honestly have no idea where it’s going, but I do know that I am looking forward to this adventure, no matter where Mountainward/Otherward takes me.

Edward and his dog, Moose, climb and hike to the top of El Diente, located in San Juan Mountains of Colorado, to escape life and to seek solitude…

*excerpt chapter 1*

I picked El Diente because it was as far away as I could possibly get.

Four hours down the highway, two hours up a dirt road. Twelve miles of winding foot trail and that was just to the base. Then, there was a damn near treacherous climb to the peak. Rough cut rock newly erupted, unclaimed wilderness flopped out on all sides for as far as the eye could see. Mile upon monolithic mile of savage, undisciplined nature and little tiny me, smack in the middle of an unbroken run of prehistoric rock.

It seemed like a tasteful amount of distance to put between myself and society.

The slow-rising sun was only just beginning to stain the skyline pale yellow and powdered purple, not a single cloud in sight.

While Edward paints a beautiful picture, with breathtaking descriptions, what he finds is not exactly the serenity he was looking for, as his “sight” kicks in…

*excerpt chapter 1*

That bark. It had been so long since I’d heard him make that particular sound, I was still wondering what he could possibly mean by it when I got a full body flash of her.

Like a wrecking ball.

Like a meteor.

My knees hit the trail, then my palms. Fingers clutching dust. Lungs choking on blistering hot air. My head tried to turn itself inside out, eyes glued to the shimmery silhouette of a girl standing far off in the distance. Barely an inch tall and blurred around the edges before she jumped from light years away to impossibly close, from miles to the microscopic level in a single, tripwire heartbeat.

Shoved right up in my face, underneath my skin.

I could feel her, taste her, cell to cell for one solid instant.

I fought down the urge to black out and focused my eyes on the dirt, gulping down the wild spin of the faraway horizon on either side, breaking out into a sweat. I might as well be wrist-deep in the sun, rocks burning, heat flooding off the peak in a thick eruption of molten fire. It churned down the slippery slope, a pyroclastic flow of unearthly heat and scorching acid air as the mountain twisted itself into a spectre of its former glory.

A proverbial volcano.

Fuck.

There was someone up there.

And I’ll let you guess who that someone is! *wink* I will tell you she is not in good shape – emotionally or physically, but it’s what Edward does for her and their adventure so far – how the hell did she get way up there?! – along with the mysterious elements like “…landed back in my body,” that will draw you into this suspense-filled and distinctive story. Well, all that and the obvious pull these two seem to have for each other; I have a feeling they have both been struck by something exciting and unusual!

A Love Story For The Ages by missrebecca

A Love Story for the Ages bb misforMarisa

A Love Story For The Ages ~NOMINATED FOR A SHIMMER AWARD! Edward was changed in 1918 unaware that his betrothed lay dying in an alley outside the hospital. Every eighteen years she comes back to him, only to die a horrible death. Can they find a way to stop it, before it’s too late?

Rated: Fiction T – English – Romance/Drama – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 5 – Words: 21,044 – Reviews: 68 – Favs: 118 – Follows: 51 – Updated: 10-28-10 – Published: 10-14-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6397934

This story has that special factor that sucks me into Twilight fics again and again – pardon the pun. Irrevocable love is my brand of heroin, and this fic gave me quite the hit!  The unique plot of this emotional and captivating story, A Love Story For The Ages, is exactly as the title suggests; it’s the story of a love so deep…a bond so strong…it defies logic and the laws of both nature and time. It can give the kiss of life to the long-dead human memories of a lonely vampire…

Edward had forgotten her. How her skin was milky white and her hair was so dark against her pale skin. Her lips a ruby red. He’d forgotten what they felt like, to be pressed under his own in a chaste kiss suitable for a betrothed pair. He’d forgotten how one night he’d felt her. The curves under her dress and the sighs over his face. He’d felt the soft skin of her collarbone under his lips that night. But he’d forgotten, until he saw her again.

It was eighteen years after he died. Eighteen years after a vampire named Carlisle had found him and ‘saved’ him, damning him to eternity on the earth but saving him from death. He’d never really known whether to be grateful.

But then he’d seen her. Her hair was shorter than he remembered but her eyes he would never forget. Such a deep shade of brown, he’d seen nothing like it till then. Her face was the exact same heart shape, her lips still an enticing red. She was smiling, with a man he assumed was her father. And he remembered.

Dinners with their families. Chaperoned evenings to the theatre. Nights in playing chess. Drinking tea on the porch swing. Sneaking in and out of windows. Being so deliriously in love they knew not what to do with themselves.

She would be over thirty years old now. Most likely married, with children, though seeing her then she didn’t look much older than she had the last time he’d seen her; through feverish eyes in the hospital he’d died in. How could he have forgotten her?

And so begins the heartbreaking cycle of love and loss, the waiting game and the constant race against time as the sand falls swiftly through the hourglass – all converging in the lives and deaths of the utterly spellbinding Miss Isabella Swan!

Twilight on the Prairie by ilovealion

HoneymoonOnThePrairie

Twilight on the Prairie ~This was inspired by the pictures taken of Robert Pattinson during the filming of Water for Elephants. Farmward looked so hot in his “period attire” that I was inspired to put him on the Prairie with Bella. E&B friends to lovers… 

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 2 – Words: 16,888 – Reviews: 24 – Favs: 39 – Follows: 19 – Updated: 02-28-12 – Published: 09-12-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6319993

I spent many a Sunday afternoon wishing I was Laura Ingalls Wilder – I know, I’m showing my age by confessing that. 🙂 I wanted to run carefree though the wildflower meadow with my sisters while wearing a calico sunbonnet. Stop laughing!  After reading Twilight on the Prairie by our very own Ilovealion, my plans of what…and who…I fancied doing in the meadow became most unPG.  In fact, they became positively M rated! 😉

We meet the lovely Bella as she wakes up to face another day of chores in her pa’s little house on the prairie. She is a dutiful daughter and willing to play her part in the running of the household, allowing her own hopes of becoming a teacher to crumble into dust.  Bella does enjoy taking care of the men though, and one in particular who she thinks back fondly on…

He and my brother Emmett had been friends forever. Heck, Edward was practically a part of the family. Growing up, he spent every spare minute with us. We would all work side-by-side to get our chores done so we could swim and fish down at the river. Even though I was friends with his sister Alice, she didn’t enjoy mud fights and baiting hooks like I did. I was a tom-boy, through-and-thorough, so I ended up being a third wheel, tagging along behind Emmett and Edward wherever they chose to go.

That was when they were children though; time and the seasons move on. Edward is studying to be a physician, like his father, but still helps out on the farm during school breaks. Bella is a young lady, constrained by circumstance, but, thanks to Edward, she gains a new awareness of what being a woman could entail…

My entire body began to flush as Edward tickled my palm with his lips. I had never, ever felt such a sensation. I could feel a tingling purr vibrate across my chest as my nipples hardened like I was outside in the cold. The sensation traveled down my body and settled between my legs, pulsing. I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath. I sucked in a gulp of air and stared at his beautiful face as he kissed my palm gently.

Sigh! Prairieward is the embodiment of sweetness and romance; he is also hot enough to ignite prairie grass!  So ladies, leave modern day life behind for a little while and revel in this gentle love story set in a simpler time.

Hard to Love by drotuno

Hard to Love ~ I didn’t know how to ask him if I was going to lose the one person that had loved me unconditionally my entire life. Bella Swan had been in every moment of my life since I was seven years old. Eighteen years. She was there for it all, and it wasn’t supposed to end like this. AH/Canon couples. EPOV Rated M

Rated: Fiction M – English – Hurt/Comfort/Friendship – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 12 – Words: 52,771 – Reviews: 1,675 – Favs: 1,053 – Follows: 955 – Updated: 09-01-13 – Published: 05-04-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9261922

Hard to Love by the talented storyteller, drotuno, is certainly not hard to love. It’s a short but compelling fic that really packs an emotional punch. Told completely from Edward’s point of view – except for the Fandom for Oklahoma outtake, which is BPOV and actually chapter 12 – each chapter presents Edward’s ‘Present Day’ plight and a Flashback to when Edward and Bella were children. That is where and how we learn the heartwarming progression of their special, childhood friendship into the unconditional, loving couple they are in the present day. But, where the “hard” stuff comes into play, is that all of this is recounted from…Bella’s hospital bedside.

Chapter 1

Forks, Washington

Present Day

EPOV

He [Carlisle] guided me down the hallway, saying, “She’s stable, which means you can see her.”

After several turns, I knew where we were: Intensive Care Unit.  I stopped dead in my tracks at the end of the hallway.

“Just…” I gripped his sleeve. “Just…tell me, Dad. Before we go any farther. Is she… Will she… Fuck, what happened?”

I didn’t know how to ask him if I was going to lose the one person that had loved me unconditionally my entire life. I didn’t know how to stop the shaking in my hands, either. Bella Swan had  been in every moment of my life since I was seven fucking years old – through eighteen years of bullshit – including the time the man standing in front of me and his wife took me in off the streets and adopted me as their own son. She was there for it all, and it wasn’t supposed to end like this.

I know what you’re thinking, that this is going to break your heart… Well, I’m not going to sugarcoat it, I definitely shed some tears, but I also smiled through them, as Hard to Love truly is an inspirational story of two friends and lovers, that no matter what life held for them, stayed together through thick and thin – for better or for worse. And as Edward tells us, while he talks to a “sleeping” Bella, the magic all started when he met his real life “Princess”…

“I remember the first time I held your hand, Princess,” I sighed, playing with each of her fingers. “It was the first day we met, remember?” I smiled at the memory, but kept talking, simply to keep from falling apart. “You were this bright, happy…thing…all in pink. You had this sparkly band holding back all that hair.” I chuckled and sniffled against her hand, toying with a long, dark curl. “God, you really did look like a princess to me…”

Forks, Washington

Age  7

The sound of laughter made me mad as I walked out onto the playground, kicking a pine cone as I went. I hated being the new kid.

Stupid class. Stupid school. Stupid town. Stupid Mom and her new stupid boyfriend. …

“Did you see his hair?”

I glared over my shoulder. A group of girls looked my way and then laughed. I kicked the pine cone again, falling down into the last swing and pulling my hood forward. I wanted to go back home to Chicago, but my mom had wanted to move here. It wasn’t fair.

I dug my sneakers into the dirt at my feet, pushing slowly back. When I swung forward, I had to slam my feet back down in order not to hit someone.

“Hi!” she chirped. “You’re Edward Masen.”

I nodded, staring at her. She was all in pink, with dark hair pulled back by a sparkly thing that looked like a crown. Her smile was big and she had a bunch of freckles across her nose. But her eyes reminded me of the picture of an angel I saw once in a church in Chicago.

“You’re new, right?” she asked, and I nodded again. She giggled. “Don’t you talk?”

“Yeah,” I whispered, frowning up at her. Really, she’d been the first person to talk to me all day, besides the teacher. Everyone else just…stared. 

“My name’s Bella. Today’s my birthday,” she stated proudly, sitting down in the next swing.

“So?”

“I’m seven.”

“I’ve been seven since June,” I argued, rolling my eyes.

“So we’re the same.” She kicked back and started to swing.

“No.” I shook my head, swinging forward. “You’re a girl.”

Bella laughed, but for the first time all day, the sound didn’t make me mad. “I mean the same age, silly!”

“I’m still older,” I told her.

We were getting higher and higher, which caused my hood to fall back. …

“Edward, you like cupcakes?” she asked, and I nodded, licking my lips, because it had been forever since I’d had sweets. She held out her hand for mine. “Come on. I’ll get you one. My mom made them for me.”

I slipped my hand in hers, letting her pull me up from the swing. It was warm, but even though she was a girl, it didn’t feel funny to hold her hand, because she was my new friend.

See? I know you’re smiling too. Bella is a beautiful, loving soul in this story, and Edward’s love for her will make you swoon and sigh as he takes vigil by Bella’s side while she fights for her life after a terrible car accident – the power of the Edward and Bella connection is incredible here. And, remember, even though the A/N in chapter 1 says, “…this fic comes with a huge TISSUE WARNING…and is a rough ride,” I can honestly say, it’s totally worth the time to read because Bella has a hell of a lot to live for!

Stealing Home ~ Edward Cullen is hot shot baseball player in a bit of a slump. Bella Swan is the girl that he couldn’t have long ago and now she’s his new owner and he can’t have her again. Will he walk away or swing for the fences?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Edward & Bella – Chapters: 2 – Words: 20,278 – Reviews: 265 – Favs: 696 – Follows: 439 – Updated: 06-22-10 – Published: 06-07-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6031956

Stealing Home is another romantic, sexy Sportsward brought to us by one of my favourite fic authors, Nolebucgrl. Now, close your eyes, please, and imagine, Edward Cullen in tight, white baseball pants, and a fitted, white St. Louis Cardinals jersey, trimmed in red, outlining his well-defined muscles, everywhere, as he swings a hard… Yeah, you get the picture! lol And I’m pretty sure that was what a seventeen-year-old Bella Swan was thinking when twenty-year-old Edward first joined her father’s baseball team five years ago and she developed a huge crush on him. But now, today, that she is a college graduate, and the new owner of the Cardinals, after the sad and untimely death of her father, Charlie; how will Bella see the famous short stop? And more importantly… How will he see her?

I heard the distinctive click of high heels on the concrete floor and glanced over my shoulder to see what was going on. I hoped to God it wasn’t Lauren Mallory looking to corner me before the game. She worked for The Post-Dispatch and was constantly attempting to get me into bed. Like I was stupid enough to sleep with a reporter? Rejection seemed to bounce off her though; she just kept coming after me like a rabid dog.

The first thing I noticed when I caught sight of the female walking toward me was that she wasn’t Lauren. This woman put Lauren to shame in every single way. She had hair the color of the mahogany wood cabinets in my kitchen. I loved that color. Her heart shaped face was gorgeous, a perfect peaches and cream complexion, high cheekbones, deep brown eyes flecked with some gold…she was stunning. And the rest of her body was as lovely as her face. She was wearing a charcoal gray pinstriped suit/skirt combination with a cream colored blouse underneath. Her legs were perfect, shapely and muscular at the same time. The tight little package was made complete by a pair of gray heels that matched her outfit perfectly. My mouth was watering at the sight of her.

It wasn’t…it couldn’t be…”Bella?” I asked, shock coloring my tone.

*grins* I think Edward has a lot to learn about “Ms. Swan.” There is so much history, and unresolved feelings, between Edward and Bella, which develops into a sweet and passionate two chapter romance, where Baseballward makes a resounding resolve to, “…get her home run, both on and off the field.” 😉

Dear Bella by Lellabeth

Dear Bella banner

Dear Bella – December 22 is the only day I let myself think of you. I don’t know if you remember, but I’d do anything to forget.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 13 – Words: 15,675 – Reviews: 1,026 – Favs: 418 – Follows: 540 – Updated: 06-28-13 – Published: 05-21-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9314616

Dear Lellabeth,

There are Fanfic authors who write beautiful words, stringing them together like prayer flags in an empty wilderness. There are authors who write important stories, that promote understanding and give insight into pain, suffering and joy. And there are those who use patience and care to weave a story out of captivating moments, revealing the heart of their narrative one delicate leaf at a time.

And then there’s you.

I wonder how many tears, both sad and happy, have been shed as a result of Dear Bella?

Dear Bella,

Do you remember when we met? I can still smell the marinara that got embedded in my hoodie when you bumped into me, and I still smile when I remember how your cheeks flushed redder than the sauce. I knew you of course – the police chief’s daughter come home, the new toy for all of Forks to gawk at. They stared and you faltered, stumbled and stuttered and grimaced your way through those first few days of the spotlight. Except when everyone else had grown bored and looked away, I continued to sneak glances at the glint of your hair in the sun or the way your sundress brushed the backs of your thighs.

I’d pretend to be terrible at biology just so I could watch you arch over the microscope, watch the strawberry slick of your tongue as it soothed the chapped skin of your lips and imagine it was touching mine instead. You’d catch me sometimes, forever staring, and your wide eyes trapped me like pomegranate molasses, and I wouldn’t doubt that there were moments time stood still as I watched the hammer of your hummingbird heartbeat against your neck. But you’d always look away just as I smiled, leaving it to fall just as I had fallen.

As I said to you this week, thank you for tearing my heart into pieces with a few, carefully woven chapters; and for stitching it back together again with the skill of a story-tailor.

Yours always,

Gingerandgreen

Fantastic FilmFics!

FFF2

I’m sure we are all familiar with the phrase, “The best of both worlds.” Basically, it means that a person can enjoy the advantages of two very different things at the same time. Those five simple words have inspired books to be written, poems to be penned, and songs to be composed because it’s something many people strive for as they express themselves through their creative medium of choice.

In Twific terms, I think the best of both worlds is realized when we see our beloved Twilight characters placed in the main roles of our favorite movies. You know, Bella as Vivian in Pretty Woman or Edward as Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind. We are able to picture each scene and relive each magic, movie moment with a twist of Twilight mixed in. One of us is still waiting for a Han Soloward to be written *side eyes at Ilovealion* …but in the mean time, take a look at the other Twilight FilmFics we’ve tracked down for you to enjoy.

~—————————————-~

 *Reviews by Cared*

I admit reading these stories was sort of weird…but weird in a good way, as all three of these fics feature the cast of Twilight characters I know and love, with familiar plot lines too – because I’ve seen and enjoyed the films which inspired them. While Pretty Woman, Sweet Home Alabama and August Rush are all undeniably good stories and movies in their own right, for someone like me, and I hope many of you, Edward and Bella being the protagonists in these versions, is the cherry on top of the cake.

I read Twilight itself before the first film was made, thereby ensuring I had my own visual of Edward in my mind, but was then delighted when I saw Catherine Hardwick’s choice to play him. Perfect! All these years later, my Edwards still bear an uncanny resemblance to Rob in all his varied forms.  For me, the Edward in Bella Donna (Pretty Woman) was a Rome Rob, and Coming Home To You (Sweet Home Alabama) was more of a Remember Me Rob. My difficulty arose upon reading Reaching For Stars (August Rush) as Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is one of my top three favourite actors, and his image and singing voice kept popping into my mind as I read. LOL  Oh, what delicious inner-eye candy I savoured while reading these fics.  Sigh!

Bella Donna by JiffyKate

*Made by Jenny Kate*

Bella Donna ~ Edward and Bella are similar creatures; they both screw people for money, but one of them goes for blood. It’s nothing personal…until it is.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Romance – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 17 – Words: 61,994 – Reviews: 994 – Favs: 408 – Follows: 718 – Updated: 09-15-13 – Published: 04-05-13 – id: 9175099

This is one of those fics where I had to ponder long and hard over how much to tell you to entice you, without robbing you of the pleasure of finding out for yourself.  I could simply say it’s a Pretty Woman meets Twilight fic, but that would not do it justice.  The basic premise is there, of course, I mean, Bella is a hooker and Edward is her John, and he does pick her up in a borrowed stick-shift car to take her back to his posh hotel for the night.  He even ends up hiring her for the week, and despite both their best efforts, feelings get involved, lines are blurred and crossed, and what should have been a simple business transaction suddenly becomes very complicated indeed.  If you’ve seen the film Pretty Woman, none of this should surprise you.  What will be a surprise though, are the tantalising extra layers of plot that JiffyKate have cleverly woven throughout, which only serve to turn a good story into a completely captivating and fascinating one.

If you’ve previously read anything from the talented duo of JiffyKate, something else that won’t surprise you is this fic being so sexually hot…

Are you okay?”

 She seems surprised at my question. “Yeah, I’m great.”

“Good. I was worried that I was too rough.”

She slowly sits down on the bed. “It was rough but nothing I can’t handle. I, um, really liked it.”

I watch as her blush covers her cheeks and moves all the way down to her rosy nubs causing them to harden. My dick automatically follows suit.

“I want to fuck you again.” 

“You certainly aren’t afraid to say what you want, are you?”

“I’m not afraid of anything, Bella, and I always get what I want. Besides, I’ve already paid you. You’re mine for the entire night.” I reach out to touch her shiny blonde hair but she jerks her head away.

“You have your rules, I have mine. No touching the hair.” 

Fuck, she’s hot. A small part of me wonders what Bella is hiding, but who the hell am I to judge? We all have our secrets. Besides, now is not the time to worry about such things; I have much more pressing issues at hand.

I try to stifle the growl that’s rumbling in my chest as I pull her onto my lap. I push two of my fingers in her mouth and command her to suck on them before taking them out and rubbing the moisture on her swollen pussy. When Bella starts rolling her hips and moaning, I know she is ready for me. Grabbing her hips, I lift her up slightly before pulling her back down on my cock.

I grit my teeth in frustration when I realize that fucking Bella feels even better the second time.

It’s not only the plot that has extra layers. Midnight Cougar and I discussed  (read, salivated over) Edward and we agreed he is MORE.  His otherworldly, commanding presence, his brilliant intellectual CEO power, and his above par performance in the bedroom, add up to MORE.

Edward has three rules:
– No kissing
– No oral
– Just fucking!
 
I only have one:
– Just read this scintillating story now!

This author’s note is to be found at the beginning of the story:

Ten year old Bree Tanner has a dream to meet the band Cullen, or more specifically, their lead singer Edward Masen. When Cullen’s summer tour brings them closer than ever, Bree knows it’s her chance. Against the wishes of her parents, she sets out on a journey to finally meet her idol, but in doing so she learns more about herself than she ever thought possible.

Eighteen year old Isabella Swan is focused. She dedicates every last minute to her Columbia University education, but when her roommate asks to be accompanied to a party for the band Cullen, Isabella reluctantly agrees. While there, she meets a dashing stranger who completely captivates her, and for the first time in her life, she finds herself falling off course

Inspired by the movie “August Rush”, this story follows both Bree and Bella as they struggle to overcome the hardships they face, and find a way back to the life they were always meant to be living. 

There will be some romance, drama, slight angst, and ultimately an uplifting HEA.

Well, what can I add to that?

Bree is brilliantly written! Her story is heart breaking, but the child herself, and how she copes with life is truly heartwarming.  It’s almost painfully poignant, but from the moment I met her, I just had to believe in her finding a HEA, as much as she believes in finding Edward Cullen.

As for Edward and Bella, their moment together is all too brief, nevertheless – it is beautiful and unforgettable…

He smiled wistfully. “I’m from Chicago, so I guess it’s not that much different than here. What do you miss the most about your home…I mean, besides family and friends,” he asked, swooping the conversation right back to me.

“I don’t know, the stars maybe….The high buildings and bright lights don’t let too much of the sky through.” 

“That’s true….but again, maybe you’re just not looking at it the right way.”

“Meaning?” I asked with a smile, already knowing he had another beautiful lesson to teach me.

“Come here,” he said before grabbing my hand. The moment his skin touched mine there was an immediate physical reaction that zinged between us; it was electrifying, a spark stronger than any other I felt before. He looked at me as if he felt it too, but he just smiled and pulled me behind him towards the opposite side of the roof. “Look,” he insisted while pointing out over the city skyline. 

My heart jumped. “Stars!” I said excitedly. It wasn’t really stars; in fact it was overcast that night, but the lights illuminating from all the buildings’ windows was almost as amazing. It surprised me that I never noticed it before, but then again, I was always too busy to pause long enough to truly see anything. “Thank you for showing this to me…” 

“Edward,” he answered with a crooked smile. He still had my hand grasped firmly in his, but he squeezed it tenderly as almost a way to shake my hand for the greeting. 

“I’m Bella,” I said with a returning smile.

“Well Bella, it’s nice to meet you.”

My heart fluttered. “It’s nice to meet you too.”

I can’t quite put my finger on what it is exactly about this fic that appeals to me.  The plot is interesting and pulled at my heartstrings, and the main characters are sympathetic; they quickly and effortlessly drew me into their lives.  The secondary characters are certainly an eclectic bunch, including true and loyal friends in Jake and Alice, and the vile, despicable Victoria and Riley.  But, it is something more than that…maybe it’s the vibe given off by this absorbing story or the strong emotional element.  It is all-human, yet it has that lovely feeling there is a greater force in the universe guiding our dear characters, which gives it an extra layer of interest.  Perhaps it’s all that reaching for stars!

Coming Home to You ~ When Bella is forced to go back to her hometown to take care of unfinished business, will she be able to leave the past behind her or is she just finally coming home?

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 22 – Words: 39,675 – Reviews: 322 – Updated: 6-20-11 – Published: 10-7-10 – Bella & Edward – Complete

Edward and Bella have been inseparable since they were tots, and it looked like they would be devoted to each other for well…forever.

Bella peddled her bike as hard as she could, her long brown hair blowing in the breeze behind her. Finally arriving at Edward’s, she threw her bike down and ran into the back yard where she knew he would be. Flinging the door to the old barn open, she found Edward exactly as she had a hundred times before. He stood before her in an old pair of ripped jeans and one of his favorite flannels, a pair of old work boots on his feet. All were splattered with paint that had somehow not made it on the large piece of cardboard in front of him.

Edward loved to paint. He had begged his mom and dad for canvases like real artists used, but they weren’t able to afford them at the time. So, Edward had settled for large pieces of cardboard that he would tack in front of him while he worked on his masterpieces. He often imagined that one day he would have his very own place to paint in peace and not have to hide away in a barn.

“Edward, whatcha doing?” Bella asked as she took a seat on one of the extra stools Edward had brought out for her one day. He figured since she spent as much time in here as he did, she should be comfortable.

“Nothing much. You ready to go?” he asked her as he began to pack away his painting supplies. He cherished every item he had. Not knowing when his parents would have the extra money to buy him more supplies, Edward made sure to take care of the ones he had.

Once he was all packed up, he walked over to Bella and grabbed her hand, leading her out of the barn. The two of them walked hand in hand down the well worn path behind the Cullen’s property. They both knew this path very well since this too was a daily thing for them. Once they had reached the meadow, they both laid down in the tall wildflowers, hands still clasped between them.

After a few moments of silence, Edward turned to Bella, almost willing her to look at him. Finally feeling the sensation that he was watching her, she turned to him, brown eyes meeting green.

“Bella Swan, one day I’m gonna marry you,” Edward told her with complete conviction. Bella looked over at him, smiling widely. Bella shook her head at him, laughing a little bit as she sat up. Edward followed suit, and sat up beside her.

“Now why would you wanna marry me, Edward?” she asked him as she held his hand tightly in hers.

“So that every day you can be the last person I see before I go to sleep and the first one I see when I wake up,” he told her. They both smiled at each other and leaned in together, sharing their first kiss.

Oh, my!  Isn’t that one of the most romantic and sweet lines in the universe? It made me simultaneously melt and smile.  You would think the next line should be “and they all lived happily ever after”, but it’s not.  I was left wondering what on earth had happened to drive Edward and Bella apart.  Not just metaphorically speaking – Bella now lives in New York and Edward still lives in Forks.

Riley, a suit from New York, proposes to Bella, she accepts, and travels home to Forks for the first time in seven years.  It’s not purely a social visit as she has the teeney-weeney, itsy-bitsy, little matter of getting a divorce from Edward to take care of.  Of course, I was rooting straight away for Bella to reunite with Edward; I did feel a tad sorry for Riley though, as he is totally unaware of an ex-husband – or not so ex as it turns out.  The fact that I envisaged him as Patrick Dempsey, (aka Dr. McDreamy) has absolutely nothing to do with it. *wink* (Understand what I mean about all the inner-eye candy now?)

Naturally, Edward and Bella fight, say and do mean things to each other, make stupid mistakes, and are the last people to recognise they are both still in love.

So, make a bowl of popcorn, dim the lights and settle down to enjoy the banter, the underlying love and the entertaining secondary characters. And, just like in a good RomCom, let’s see if Edward and Bella find their way home to one another.

La Ville Lumière by Audeamus-Amor 

La Ville Lumière ~ COMPLETE: Inspired by the Before Sunrise/Before Sunset films, Bella and Edward meet in Paris. With only 12 hours left in a city made for lovers, how will they fare? Rated M for My God, I can’t believe I wrote a Lemon. AU, AH, ExB, THREE-Shot.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 3 – Words: 16,578 – Reviews: 73 – Favs: 132 – Follows: 39 – Updated: 03-07-09 – Published: 03-05-09 – Status: Complete – id: 4904279

This three-part story, told from both BPOV and EPOV, may be short but it certainly isn’t lacking in anything, especially adventure and romance! La Ville Lumière was inspired by the 1995 romantic drama film Before Sunrise, starring Ethan Hawke; where a young American man, and a young French woman, meet on an European train and disembark in Vienna, as they spend the night walking around the city, and getting to know each other, and then its 2004 sequel, Before Sunset, which picks up the story years later.

The premise for this story is much the same, except the ending differs somewhat and it is set in Paris, France – la ville de l’amour – and both Bella and Edward are young Americans on a lone, summer adventure before real life dictates its expectations. They casually meet outside a French pub, as Edward offers Bella a light for her cigarette. Their romantic connection is instantaneous and one could even say…smokingly erotic…

He gave me another appraising look, his eyes traveling up my body just once, tauntingly slow. My insides squelched at the obvious insinuation in the look and I cleared my throat to stop him, playing the part of the good girl. He gave me another dazzling smile before he took steps forward, his chest nearly touching mind. My breath faltered as his fingertips came dangerously close to my lips, his earthy smell and just a hint of cologne mingling pleasantly in the air around me. He plucked the cigarette from my mouth and I licked my lips unconsciously the moment he pulled it away.

He smiled at me again, reassuring yet burning with his easily won intensity. It probably came naturally to him, that smoldering look, it was a mainstay of all men that looked the way he did; it was like the membership card to the club. He moved to place my unlit cigarette between his lips and I opened my mouth to protest, but when he gave me a challenging ‘tut’ I quickly quieted. He touched the cherry to the end, his deliciously full lips closing around the cigarette that had only just been in my mouth, and inhaled… Sexily. I didn’t know that breathing could be sexy, but watching the way his eyelashes fluttered just barely as he inhaled and the sound of the softest moan rumbling from his throat as he exhaled confirmed it. Breathing could be sexy. Almost painfully sexy. He offered it to me and I took it, his fingers brushing against mine.

And, as in true Twilight fashion…sparks fly! But when they part ways, and she walks off into the Paris night, something quickly changes in Edward’s mind, and on their last night en Paris, he decides to up the ante and propositions her with an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity…

“Miss! Wait!”

I turned around, my decision still unmade.

“Yeah?” I called back, stopped in my spot.

“Come with me!” he called, his eyes shining with the promise of an adventure.

“I don’t even know you!” I yelled, ignoring the confused looks of an elderly couple as they stepped around me on the street.

“Well,” he carried on, not missing a beat, “Get to know me!”

His boyish enthusiasm was impossible to ignore, the glint in his eye more charming than anything he had pulled out thus far. Looking at him, I knew the night would be anything but boring, the opposite of safe. 18 years of careful, self-imposed maturity was protesting somewhere inside of me. No! Don’t do it! I shook my head at him, just barely, refusing his invitation, agreeing with the voices in my head. He was leaning out, his upper body hanging over the edge of the window.

He pouted at me playfully and shrugged, “Please?”

I took a step toward him and stopped. Don’t do it. Do it. Don’t do it. Do it! I teetered on my feet, my teeth worrying my bottom lip, my hand clenching and unclenching into fists at my side. Everything about him screamed reckless, screamed playboy, and while I knew that I probably shouldn’t have, I took a step forward…. Then backward…Another two steps forward… And another… And finally, I broke into a run…

I knew what I needed …

…And what I needed was an adventure.

Oh, yes, Bella, that’s exactly what you need! Ooh, la la, so much ‘love at first sight’ and sweet romance. *wink*

And there is now a final installment of this series of movies, called Before Midnight (2013)… And I am hoping the author of La Ville Lumière may someday be inspired to write a bit more of her lovely tale, so we can see where life took these two adventurers.

From Geek to Chic by MrsK81 - banner by Evilnat

*Made by Evilnat*

From Geek To Chic ~ Convinced she was headed to permanent residency in Loserville, Bella Swan would have done anything to fit in with the popular crowd. What if she was presented with an opportunity to do just that? Would she take it happily or would she stop and think about the person she was leaving behind? Inspired by 13 going on 30. Romance, drama, humor and a little bit of everything.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 12 – Words: 48,315 – Reviews: 430 – Favs: 191 – Follows: 290 – Updated: 08-18-13 – Published: 02-17-13 – id: 9021054

I previously reviewed From Geek To Chic by MrsK81 in the Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue…. post, but wanted to mention it again because it fits into today’s post perfectly. It was inspired by the 2004 movie 13 Going on 30, where an unpopular girl or “geek” falls asleep and wakes up many years later as an older, professional woman but with the personality of a child in an adult’s body… She has a whole new and different life, both personally and professionally, to cope and deal with, and Bella’s adventures are as fun to read in this fic, as Jenna’s were to watch in the movie. From Geek To Chic continues to make me smile; Bella is strong, intelligent, and resilient, and I am still following and enjoying each update.

Lady Of The Knight  ~ One rainy night and a bit of bad luck has two complete strangers thrown together in a chance encounter. Bitter by an unfaithful wife Edward runs away to New York where he takes in an unlikely companion with a questionable occupation. Pretty Woman AU/AH

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 26 – Words: 97,573 – Reviews: 3,573 – Favs: 4,048 – Follows: 1,181 – Updated: 11-16-10 – Published: 09-21-08 – Status: Complete – id: 4550368

Again, this is a sweet Twific that I have mentioned a few times in past posts, but since it is also inspired by a movie, the excellent flick, Pretty Woman, I’d be remiss not to mention Lady Of The Knight. Not only is it a lovely, romantic read, it’s a different twist on the movie that makes it a bit unique and interesting, and as the author says, “It’s very loosely based on the movie Pretty Woman. I loved Richard Gere in this movie. He played a fantastic piano playing Edward.” *nods head and swoons*

Mate of Honor ~ Best friends Bella and Edward have a deal—if they’re not married by the time they’re 30, they’ll marry each other. While she’s been searching for Mr. Right, he’s been busy with Miss. Right Now. Would you be happy seeing your long-time love say ‘I do’ to someone else? B & E, M

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Humor – Chapters: 15 – Words: 29,538 – Reviews: 677 – Updated: 9-12-13 – Published: 11-29-12 – Edward & Bella WiP

Warning: MagTwi78 has an evil streak and she’s taking it out on poor Edward – and I adore him! Actually, I also adore MagTwi78 because she has given us an Edward who is thoroughly charming, completely inept at showing his feelings and tries so hard to show Bella just who the best man is – the poor boy!

Hold on, I’m getting ahead of myself…let me set the scene. Bella is working in Australia and calls her best friend, Edward, with news…

I stretch my legs further, pointing and flexing my toes. “So why are you calling? Nobody else to torment?”

“What? Can’t I call my best friend?”

“Of course you can.” I can hear my own voice softening. “I just don’t think you called to tell me you were eating lunch.”

Again, that laugh—I’ll never get sick of the sound. “Okay, I’ll cut to the chase.” A gulp, that sounds more like drinking than eating. “I’m letting you off the hook.”

“Which one?”

“The one that ties you to me forever.”

My heart falters. “What do you mean?”

“I’m doing it! I’m really doing it!” 

“Doing what?”

“Edward, I’m getting married!” Bella laughs again, that husky chuckle that I’ve loved all my life, and the world falls away from my feet. “And I want you to be my mate of honor!”

*gasp!* Pause for dramatic effect and heartstopping moment – *ohmyedward* and chapter two!

“I’m sorry? You want me to be your what?” My heart has just been ripped from my chest, and she’s speaking some bizarre dialect.

Bella giggles again. “My mate of honor! Isn’t that the cutest?”

Cute? “Who are you, and what have you done with my best friend?” And my reason for living.

“You crack me up, Edward. Seriously. You see, I was talking to Benno about it—”

My defenses are instantly up. “Who’s Benno?” 

“My fiancé, of course! Anyway, he’s an Aussie. I met him through work—he’s one of the curators at the museum. We started talking at Starbucks. He bought me a coffee because I was holding up the line—it wasn’t my fault, their money is all colorful and confusing and plastic. So we exchanged numbers, went out a couple of times, and really hit it off.”

I hate the guy already. And what the fuck kind of name is “Benno,” anyway?

Bella giggles before she continues. “One night he took me to dinner and asked if I believed in love at first sight, and it was so romantic! And then we went for a walk along the pier, and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Isn’t that the sweetest thing?”

I bite back my immediate response and go with something a little more non-committal. “Mhm.”

“And you just have to be in the wedding! But you can’t be the ‘maid’ of honor, obviously.” I can practically hear her eyes roll. “And I was telling Benno about you, and he said you could be my mate of honor. You know, ’cause you’re a bloke.”

And so it begins! Mate of Honor is delightfully written – the gentle humour that Mag injects into the story appears effortless because her writing is so smooth. The torment she inflicts on Edward is teasing and affectionate. It’s both a joy and horror to see his reactions and competitive streak appear, making him behave ridiculously. The more he puts himself into uncomfortable situations to get Bella to notice him as not just her best mate, the more I will him on to win her heart – or maybe he just doesn’t realise that he doesn’t have to try quite so hard.

Written completely from Edward’s PoV, it’s a bloke’s view of weddings and all that goes with them – That’s right. My gift bags are classy. I googled bachelorette gift bags as part of my research—and I was pretty freaked out by the stuff that appeared. My Bella is a sophisticated girl; I’m giving her a high-class event. No cocks on straws at this party. LMAO if men only knew the half of it…!

MagTwi78 has me giggling, swooning and cheering Edward on in equal measures as he tries to be all things to the girl he thought he’d walk down the aisle by default – simply because she was supposed to be his all along.

Although we’re fifteen chapters in there may be a little way to go yet and I never want it to end!

Twilight on the BLUE LAGOON by knicnort3

*Made by ysar*

*Made by ysar*

Twilight on the BLUE LAGOON  ~ Bella was one of the popular sophomores in her high school, but when a class trip goes awry she finds herself marooned on a tropical island with Edward Cullen, the resident school geek. The two must overcome their differences and learn to work together in order to survive. If you’re a fan of ‘Twilight’ and ‘Blue Lagoon’, this is the story for you! *more info inside* AH, AU, E/B

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Adventure – Bella – Chapters: 34 – Words: 136,647 – Reviews: 3,868 – Favs: 2,003 – Follows: 1,622 – Updated: 10-17-12 – Published: 07-11-12 – Status: Complete – id: 8309300

I have many guilty secrets, many of which I won’t share at the moment (‘cause really, that is TMI), but one I will share is that I loved Blue Lagoon when I first saw it in the 1980’s, and I remember having to sneak around behind my Mum’s back to see it! *sigh* Those were the days…

So to see a Twilight/Blue Lagoon crossover was pretty exciting for me – even more exciting though was the fact that knicnort3 wrote it.  I may or may not have bounced up and down when I saw the alert when she published the first chapter.  I read the story as a brand new WIP, and I followed along with the adventure of Bella and Edward with all the faithfulness of a terrier puppy.

First up – I will let you in on a little secret – you aren’t going to like this Bella at first. She is one of the “popular” crowd and thinks quite well of herself, so when she gets stranded with Edward – who is quite unlike any Edward I have encountered before – she is rude and downright nasty to him.  This, of course, is quite a turn up for the books, as how many times have we encountered the opposite situation – where Edward is the loathsome one?  Just like we always forgive the Jerkwards – you will forgive and get to understand our little “Jerkella” here.

One thing about it, though, you will love Edward immediately, particularly if you have a soft spot for Geekwards.  But it’s got to be said, Edward adapts to his “deserted island” surrounds very quickly and becomes quite the survivalist.

A little glimpse of Survivalist Edward and Bitchy Bella mellowing a little in chapter three…

He looked absolutely ridiculous standing out there with a bright orange life vest and large pointy stick…but he didn’t seem to care. He was stranded on an island with a girl who was sure to make fun of him and had in the past, but none of that mattered to him. He was focused on getting fish and surviving the day, and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t inspiring. He was right, none of that crap mattered and there was no reason to be embarrassed on that island – there wasn’t room for it, and we sure as hell didn’t have the extra energy to waste on something as superficial as looking good and acting cool.

I decided then that it was time to pull my head out of my ass and do my fair share of contributing to our survival… so I gave myself the nauseating task of cleaning the fish he already caught. It was the last thing I really wanted to do, but it wasn’t right that he was doing all the work while I just sat there and watched.

I took out his knife, and winced as I cut the head off the first fish. “Ewww!” I wanted to vomit. “Pull it together, Swan,” I told myself with a deep breath, turning my face so I didn’t have to smell the stench of the bloody fish. But then something clicked in my mind and I willed myself to just get through it. Once I was determined to get it done, it was much easier and I realized it wasn’t even as gross as I was expecting. Next I cut open the abdomen, and rinsed it out in the waves before bringing it back to the fire.

When I got both fish cleaned, skewered, and set over the fire, Edward returned completely soaked.

“You cleaned the fish?” he asked surprised as he unsnapped his life vest. “How’d you know how to do that?”

I shrugged. “My dad is an avid fisherman and used to make me go with him. I always refused to clean them before, but I watched enough times to know what to do,” I explained.

“Cool,” he said. When he opened his vest to take it off, two more fish fell out.

“Wow, you did well,” I said impressed.

“It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be,” he said with a smirk.

I cleaned the other two fish, and then roasted those as well. When they were finished, we sat there and ate them feeling like it was Thanksgiving. The two medium to small sized fish we each had wasn’t much by normal standards, but we were beyond stuffed and spent the rest of the evening throwing up.

“Ugh, were they poisonous?” I asked weakly.

“No, I think we just ate too much after not eating anything for a few days,” he explained.

I had already vomited in front of Edward once before, but doing it at the same time as him, side by side, was absolutely disgusting and yet strangely cathartic. He didn’t comment on it, and neither did I. We just did what we needed to do and waited for the other to finish as well. When we were both done emptying the contents of our stomachs onto the sand, we helped each other up and walked slowly back to where we had slept the night before. We laid down wishing for the horrible feeling to just pass as soon as possible, and we drifted off to sleep for the night.”

I won’t give away too much of the plot, but lots happen to our favourite couple while stranded on their deserted island, and they both change immensely (Edward’s is more of a physical change and Bella’s a mental one).

I loved this story SO much…I never doubted I would for a second (even when Bella was being a 24-karat bitch).  knicnort3 has a talent for surprising and entertaining her readers in equal measure and this story is no exception, even if Blue Lagoon was before your time, you don’t even need to worry – you will enjoy this story regardless!

I’m so excited to share my love of this story with you today…it’s one of my all-time top 5 favourite fics.  Needless to say, the other 4 places are taken by beloved Twilight stories, you know, I even surprised myself by ranking another fic genre so highly.  Now that I think about it, I know why this magnificent novel, yes, novel, for that’s what it is, earned that coveted position.  I was stunned when I first read this story a few years ago, and the feelings invoked by it have not faded from my memory.  I’ve got to be honest here and confess to you, while I read and enjoyed all the Harry Potter books and saw all the films, it was the lure of Cedric that initially drew me to Finding Himself.  Don’t judge me – you cannot deny he was gorgeous in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

There are many reasons why Finding Himself is one of my favourites, but what stands head and shoulders above the others is the brilliant presentation of the absolutely beautiful love story depicted between Cedric and Hermione. Honestly, it rivals that of Edward and Bella, and in fact, in some ways it’s a lot healthier.  The romance is sweet, can be fun, and as they fall deeply in-love they remain their own people.  I admire the way they grow as individuals as they overcome their problems, and how their friendship with others is also enriched as their relationship develops.  The lemons in this fic are lovely, loving and imperative…as they say, it’s always the quiet ones!  “The Room of Requirement” comes in pretty handy, js.  Maybe I’m wearing rose lemon tinted glasses here because I’m so behind their relationship and truthfully, I’m in love with their love story.  Have a look at their first kiss…

He leaned back in and she really wished he’d just kiss her. She could feel his breath on her lips as he said, “Not in the least. Why do you think I asked you to Hogsmeade? Maybe they’ll leave me alone when they see I’m already very, very…very…taken.”

And she felt his mouth brush hers, faint as butterfly wings. It almost wasn’t a kiss, but it shook her from the roots of her hair to the ends of her toes. Then he was pulling away yet again. “Don’t do that,” she said, reaching out to grip the back of his neck and yank his head down forcefully. This time, there was no almost touch. His mouth hit hers hard; he’d nearly overbalanced and had to recover himself. Then she forgot about books and lockets and nicknames, and everything, really. Cedric Diggory knew how to give a kiss, all lips, a little tongue and complete immersion in the moment. It was very different from kissing Viktor. (And maybe she shouldn’t compare them, but couldn’t help it.)

Viktor had kissed like a Seeker, and she was the Snitch – elusive, precious, delicate . . . but his goal. His passion had overwhelmed, even if she’d never felt pressured to give him more than kisses. She’d felt flattered, swept off her feet, but not quite his equal, really.

Cedric kissed like it was a conversation – give and take, exploratory, sensual, even a bit sloppy because he wasn’t thinking of how it looked, only how it felt. He tried things that might have made her laugh – like sucking her tongue or nibbling her lower lip – but which turned her inside out instead. Cedric kissed like somebody who wanted to be kissed back.

If you are familiar with the Harry Potter series you will recognise Finding Himself as an AU rewrite of the Order of the Phoenix with a different focus and new storylines perfectly interwoven with the original.  In this world, Cedric didn’t die in the graveyard – he was hit by a dreadful debilitating curse that will eventually leave him paralysed.  18 year-old Cedric and the 16 year-old Harry have formed an unlikely friendship as they are forever bound by their shared nightmare encounter with *lowers voice* he who shall not be named.  The usual shenanigans still go on at the Ministry though, and the vile Professor Umbridge, in all her pink-suited glory, is still a sicko – this time Cedric is top of her most-wanted list.  Dumbeldore’s Army is still formed, as is S.P.E.W. – you couldn’t leave out that unfortunately named society.  The history and the ethos of the House of Hufflepuff is shown and it becomes obvious why it’s a House to be proud of…why it’s the House of a Hogwart’s Champion.

ROB:CEDRIC DANCING

If you are not at all familiar with the world of Harry Potter, never mind, you don’t need to be.  Simply enjoy it as a story of “coming of age” set against the backdrop of a tumultuous time in the world, a time of parallel crises for both Muggles* and wizards.  A classic love story of two young people who hail from completely different backgrounds.  It’s about friendships and family bonds, and standing up for who and what you believe in.  It’s the tale of a noble young man hit by personal tragedy, falling in-love for the first time, being challenged to do the right thing…it’s the story of a young man Finding Himself.

Infinite Visibility by TheFicChick

 TYLER IN LIBRARY 

Infinite Visibility ~ “Bella, I’m not perfect.” “I’ve loved perfect before, and he broke me anyway.” (A “Twilight”/”Remember Me” crossover.)

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama – Chapters: 8 – Words: 45,297 – Reviews: 590 – Favs: 330 – Follows: 455 – Updated: 07-07-13 – Published: 04-13-13 – id: 9198986

Infinite Visibility

We’ll let blood build a bridge over mountains draped in stars

I’ll meet you on the ridge between these worlds apart

We’ve got this moment now to live, then it’s all just dust and dark

Let’s let love give what it gives.”

TheFicChick says, “I play around with timelines a little bit here. In this story, the events of ‘Twilight’ and ‘New Moon’ take place in 1999, not in the 2000s, which is how that universe intersects with the ‘Remember Me’ universe.” Well, I say the universes of Twilight and Remember Me do more than intersect, they blend seamlessly together and they become a perfect whole.  Infinite Visibility is a wonderful and believable love story between Tyler and Bella set against the perfect mesh of canon from both original stories – my hat is off to TheFicChick and her way with words for achieving this so masterfully.

Edward pulled his New Moon disappearing trick and eventually Bella moved on with her life, as per his request.  She matured and developed into a lovely young woman and her desire for a complete change, a concrete jungle, led her to New York to attend college.  Edward has not been forgotten – her scars run much deeper than the physical one James inflicted in Twilight – but, with time and new experiences comes the epiphany that Edward was right…

That night is the first night since September that she dreams of Edward, the ethereal, self-proclaimed demon standing against a dreary backdrop, orchestrating his own isolation.

This is the last time you’ll ever see me. I won’t come back.

It’s the first night that she dreams the dream through and doesn’t wake up screaming.

It will be like I never existed. I promise.

It’s the first time in all the times she’s had the dream that she’s still standing when he walks away.

You just don’t belong in my world, Bella.

It isn’t until she’s bumping along in a cab headed for JFK the following morning that the realization comes: he no longer belongs in hers, either.

One thing about Bella that has not changed, however, is her love for the written word, and so she is enticed to the Strand Bookstore by its claim to have eighteen miles of books, only to receive the shock of her life when she asks…

“Excuse me; do you have Virgil’s Doomed Love?”

The boy turns to face her, and she sucks in a breath. At first glance, he’s too similar, too close a replica, too familiar, and all of the contentment that had cocooned her like cotton is torn away, leaving her feeling as though she’s been stripped and sucker-punched. She stares at him for a moment, mouth agape, before spinning and dashing up the long aisle, hearing a faint “What the hell?” coming from the boy behind her as she flees. Darting around the tables near the entrance and nearly tripping over a stroller near the checkout counter, she finally bursts through the exit and onto the crowded sidewalk.

“Watch it,” a guy with a steaming paper cup of coffee mutters as he sidesteps her, and she mutters an apology as she takes in gulping breaths, clutching one of the carts of discounted books with her bare hand, the ice-cold metal burning the skin of her palm. She lets the dull ache in her hand ground her as she navigates a sea of sensation: she feels unsettled, blindsided, as if she’s seen a ghost. It’s impossible. Patently impossible, because while the moment that she’d stared into the stranger’s face was fleeting, it was long enough for her to absorb details: the all-too-human flush of his cheeks, the blue-green of his eyes. Just a likeness, she tells herself as her breathing and her heartbeat try to regulate themselves. That’s all.

“Hey.” The voice floats over her shoulder, and her still-stuttering heart picks up the tempo, now positively hammering against her ribs as if fighting for its freedom. “Are you okay?” the look-alike asks, and she turns, half-convinced that her momentary vision had been a trick of dim lighting. Those blue-green eyes narrow, a heavy brow creased in concern.

Blue-green eyes, she wills herself to remember. Not gold. It is this detail she latches onto as she nods, but the boy is still frowning. “Are you sure? Because you kind of look like hell.”

A bark of surprised laughter escapes her lips as she stares at his face, and if she needed further assurance that the person before her was far removed from his vampire doppelganger, those rather blunt words were it.

The Edward look-a-like…who eventually persuades her to meet him for coffee… is none other than the utterly charming Tyler Hawkins.  This imperfect human is one of the good guys, he has a sensitive soul and even with a lot of baggage – or maybe because of it, he is perfect for Bella.  Their understanding of the other’s pain and the tender emotional connection they develop is lovely to witness.  To quote Kelsey, Bella’s roommate, “Every great love affair starts with something as innocuous as coffee,” and you know what – I think she is right.

This enchanting and sensuous story is creeping slowing towards September and I’m reminded of the powerful prologue (in an unknown POV), which causes me to pose as yet unanswered questions.

Stepping toward the nearest of the two square pools, I can feel the faintest spray on my face, very nearly unnoticeable. Closing my eyes, I let my hipbones rest against the bronze parapet, breathe in the faintly damp air. When I open them, a barely-there rainbow appears in the mist cast off by the falling water. The sky is a perfect, robin’s egg blue, its brilliance reflected in the gleaming new architecture bordering this now-open space. Mirrored glass reflecting light, reflecting perfect blue skies, reflecting billowing white clouds and bright spring sunshine. Perfect tranquility where there was once chaotic devastation.

I squint as I stare upward, the parapet unforgiving against my bony hips, and to either side of me, people reach out and touch engraved names with single fingertips and entire palms. I don’t touch the name etched in front of me; instead, I bring my palm up to my sternum and press it flat against the space where my heart beats steadily in my chest beneath wool coat and fleece top and cotton bra before sliding it down and beneath my arm, above xylophone ribs and inked skin. My face still tipped toward the sky, I close my eyes and remember. A perfect blue canvas marred by twin curls of acrid smoke, then a billowing cloud of dust, the everyday sounds of the city yielding to the roar of destruction and pealing screams of terror.

As I stand blind, hand registering only the faintest echo of my own heartbeat, I do what I’ve made it my life’s mission not to do: I look back.

I remember.

I don’t mean to sound cryptic; I genuinely have no idea how this story will end and TBH, I’m a little afraid that there may be heartbreak ahead – for me, as well as the characters.  Regardless, I’ve been captivated by this love story and nothing is going to stop me reading.  Don’t let it stop you either.

How To Be More by deb24601

htb-car-poster-450

How To Be More ~ Art, from How to Be, toils at the grocer’s, missing his ex-girlfriend, Jessica. He’s amazed when she shows up and determined to be the ‘more’ she’s asking for. Entry in Robnipulations You Fic it We Nip it Contest. One-shot.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Words: 5,393 – Reviews: 12 – Favs: 18 – Follows: 6 – Published: 07-12-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6134646

The story starts gently with Art at work a supermarket. Please note – I am not fantasising over Art’s delectable derriere delightfully protruding up in the air as he leans over to stick his head in the freezer.

head

*clears throat* As I was saying – this is how the fic opens…

Another day at the mind-numbing, soul-sucking grocer’s. Doing a job a monkey could do. Stocking shelves, pricing merchandise, and trying to avoid thinking… about Jessica. She’d dumped me, kicking me out of her apartment in the process. My parents aren’t terribly happy to have me home again. My music isn’t going well either and my mates are always frustrated with me.

Apparently I’m not much fun to be around.

Oh, Art!  If you’ve had the pleasure of seeing the film How to Be, you are probably nodding your head in agreement and smiling in recognition, as this is so typical of adorkable Art’s behaviour; deb24601 captures him perfectly in all his lovable quirkiness.  The How to Be film tagline ‘sometimes we all need a little help’ must have struck a chord with the lovely deb24601, as she, in a stroke of genius, uses Jessica (the ex-girlfriend – not to be confused with Twi Jessica of the IKR fame) as a conduit to do just that.  She presents him with a challenge, boosts his self-esteem, and then she sits lies back and reaps the reward. Lucky lady (Jessica not Deb) as Art rises magnificently to the occasion IYKWIM!

This hilarious one-shot has pervy old dears, and a hard, frozen penis, but even that’s not enough to stop this Art from being hot!  Now, there is a sentence I never thought I’d write. This Art is definitely more!

ERIC

Imprudence and Gratification by Hank’s Lady

Imprudence and Gratification ~ Eric Packer, billionaire financier, is expecting his physician to give him his daily medical exam. Amusement and naughtiness ensues when Dr Black sends his son Jacob to undertake the exam instead. Slash one-shot.

While sitting in a darkened cinema munching on popcorn as I watched Cosmopolis for the first time, there was one question at the forefront of my mind.  No!  It wasn’t: Did Rob really pee in the limo?  Although… *snickers*

2-pissing-in-limo-2-Copy

The burning question at the forefront of my admittedly, somewhat perverted mind was: How did Eric really feel about his daily rectal examination? …But then that made me wonder: Did he gain more than the satisfaction and relief of knowing his prostrate was normal?

In this hot Cosmopolis/Twilight crossover light-hearted one-shot, the young, gay, newly qualified, Dr. Jacob Black climbs in to the limo to perform the personal procedure as it slowly makes its way across town.

Clearing my throat slightly, I lowered his shorts to uncover firm buttocks, snapped on the gloves quickly and applied lube to the fingers of my right hand. My cock twitched slightly and I grimaced, trying to remember I was a professional and the sexy naked ass in front of me was part of my job.

Raising my left hand, I tentatively spread his buttocks to reveal the tight puckered hole, noting the area leading towards his scrotum was hairless and smooth as if he had carefully shaved it – or paid someone to do it for him. I circled his hole with a lubed finger and noticed him stiffen slightly, thighs tensing.

“Breathe out and relax, Sir, I’ll try to make this as painless as possible,” I said quietly.

‘And as pleasurable as I can manage.’ I squashed the amusing thought and reminded myself again that I was a doctor.

Mmm!  Who can resist a doctor with such a good beside manner? *cough cough*

If you want to discover how Hank’s Lady’s luscious vision of Eric feels about his err…close encounter with Jacob, hop in the back of the limo to take the ride too – it has blackened out glass, js.

JACOB

Water for Elephants Oneshot by that kiwi chick

Water for Elephants Oneshot ~ “Water for the elephant, or alcohol?” Jacob asked with a smirk, balancing the bottle in one hand and the water bucket in the other. Rosie did her elephant smile and pointed at the alcohol with her long trunk” Jacob/Marlena, Walter their son & Rosie fluff!

Have you ever watched that few seconds of home video at the end of the Water for Elephants film and thought Jacob holding Walter was the cutest thing ever?  I know I have.  This sweet and fluffy one-shot showcases a few precious minutes of everyday life for the Jankowski family; it’s just how I imagined it to be.  *Happy sigh!*

“Whoa this is so high!” The small child cried, clapping his hands together and wriggling around on top of the massive animal he was sitting on. “Good girl, Rosie.” He praised, patting her wrinkled grey shoulder.

Marlena smiled and snuggled closer into her husband’s side, feeling the weight of his chin on top of her head and his breath in her hair. He ran his hands down her side, letting them come to rest on her swollen belly. She placed her smaller hand atop his and smiled at the look of awe on his face when the baby kicked at his hand.

Queenie ran in circles around Rosie’s sitting form, trying to grab the attention she wasn’t getting. Jacob and Marlena were too wrapped up in each other and Walter was still babbling on to the huge elephant and hugging her neck.

“Come here, Queenie.” Jacob commanded, chuckling at the sparkle in the old dog’s eye as she leapt into his waiting arms. Her little stub of a tail wiggled back and forth and she nuzzled into her owner’s neck and snuggled into his arms.

that kiwi chick has captured the warm and fun-loving characters of Jacob, Marlena, and Rosie perfectly.  While it’s lovely to see the obvious deep emotions between all the humans and animals, it’s our beloved Rosie and her antics who steals the scene.  This one-shot is very short at 1,182 words, but that is all it took for that kiwi chick to put a smile upon my face.

One Night Stand in Locked Down London by BlueIsSoul

*Made by Shahula*

*Made by Shahula*

One Night Stand in Locked Down LondonA disinterested, paranoid girl. A wealthy journalist with only one thing on his mind. Too much alcohol. A serial killer on the loose. Here’s the problem with a one-night stand in locked-down London.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Humor/Romance – Chapters: 4 – Words: 15,126 – Reviews: 215 – Favs: 328 – Follows: 669 – Updated: 06-15-13 – Published: 05-13-13 – id: 9290753

When BlueIsSoul asked me to pre-read her new story, she directed me towards an article that acted as the inspiration and appeared on Esquire.com. The piece basically centers on a guy who had the misfortune of finding himself after a one night stand unable to sneak out of the other party’s apartment during the terrifying lock down the recent bombing at the marathon caused. While the story surrounding the event is of course a tragedy, the article showed the odder side of what Boston inhabitants were going through while unable to leave wherever they had found themselves.

This got BlueIsSoul thinking. What if a British, cocky bloke of a fellow got stuck with a girl he thinks might be just this side of crazy, and caught in a similar situation? In this case, it’s an escaped serial killer that’s on the loose and wreaking havoc for the citizens of London, who are out and about, unaware they are about to be trapped.

We’ve read of the player Edward, and the arrogant Edward, but this Edward is in a class all his own. There are rules he feels men should follow, and he’s the best of the best.  He’s completely unaffected by the situation surrounding him and in fact, out drinking with his buddy Emmett when he finds himself in a bit of a predicament.

Edward’s problem is the girl that Emmett’s hook up has left him with; a Bella so paranoid about everything, she’s consumed with the thought that the serial killer is lurking behind every corner, ready to strike.

“Charlie – my dad – tried to take me to the doctor, because he thought it could be a real issue or something. I don’t go though. I mean, I’ll be labeled, and that’s when things become concrete. It’s almost like then I’ll really have something, you know what I mean?”

“Like a diagnosis?”

“Yeah.”

“…of paranoia?”

She nods. “Yeah.”

I take a sip from my pint. What do you say to someone who’s kind of admitted they choose not to go the doctor because they think they might possibly be crazy?

Nothing.

So I say just that.

Nothing.

“Then I fixate… on things, people,” she says conversationally, “men mainly.”

Err…

My psycho-chick-homing-device explodes.

BOOOM!

There are alarms blaring and shit.

Get set, Edward. Go.

Run for your life.

I wipe my forehead with my palm. I’m a little sweaty. All of a sudden I think I’m finding it difficult to breathe.

I’m still here though.

He knows he should leave. He knows he should wipe his hands of her and follow Rule #3, the most important of his rules: You shall make sure that she is relatively sane before you take old one eye to the optometrist.

What ensues is some of the most fun, effortless banter I’ve read in a long time. An Edward who is strangely fascinated by a girl who seems so uninterested in him she’s quite disdainful towards the bugger, who she assumes the worst of based on very few facts and appearance alone.

Edward’s fascination grows as the banter turns more…sexual in nature, as Bella and Edward continue to drink long after their friends have left.

“Tell me,” she commands, like it’s her privileged right to know these things.

“It’s something I’ve always thought was real hot you know, kinda like–”

Come on Edward, fucking enlighten me before I fall into a coma. Stop with the pathetic, pussiness.

I catch a hint of a smile before it turns into her usual someone-just-killed-my-cat expression.

She’s teasing now.

“I like a girl with a potty mouth. Keep it coming angel.”

“Dick.”

“What about it?” I’m so wity.

After some great back and forth I’ll leave for you to discover, and making her work for it, Edward finally admits to the good stuff.

Edward!”

I shake myself out the pep talk and gaze into her unsteady eyes.

“Okay. Um, so let’s say there are a lot of people who are there, but they don’t necessarily have to you know, participate.”

I watch her reaction, amused. Her eyes are now large saucers. “What do you mean?” It’s a whisper.

“Being watched when having sex.” My voice is gritty. “Rough, hard sex. There’s something illicit, something sexy about it. It turns me on.”

“Oh.”

Bella, being Bella, doesn’t give in too easy, but Edward is persistent. The first chapter gives you a glimpse of what kind of a night he’s got in store for him (and a taste of the odd fantasy Bella has) when he pursues the one night stand against his better judgment. You, like me, will be enthralled with the journey and dying for the city to lock down already.

BlueIsSoul’s writing is snappy, fresh, and purposeful. Being from London allows for the fun British tinge she’s given this story, something I’m particularly enjoying. It surrounds everything, and places you directly on that side of the pond. You can practically feel the warm pint on your tongue and smell the fish and chips on the table as Edward and Bella get ready to have a night neither will be able to forget (or leave, as the title suggests).

Even though it’s only going to be a few chapters in length, it promises to pack a punch.

Thanks, Rita! Thought you forgot it was Saint Patrick’s Day!

Yeah, you pretty much distracted me…again LOL!

As I was tryin’ to say before Rob confuzzled me, I’d love an excuse to pinch Rob’s ass, but he’s wearin’ green today, so I’ll have to find another excuse!

My only clue was the T4 logo behind him so I did a search of YouTube and found it posted back in November for the BD2 promo!

LMAO!  If you haven’t seen it already, watch {again} and enjoy Rob’s word vomit…it’s a hoot!

  • Edward and Bella are supposed to be “expert sex havers!” LMAO!!!
