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!

Reaching for Stars by knicnort3

*Made by knicnort3*

Reaching for Stars ~ Sometimes you don’t know what you’re looking for until you’ve already found it. *Inspired by the movie “August Rush”. Ten year old Bree runs away from her foster home to meet her favorite singer. Eighteen year old Bella needs a new outlook on life, and finds solace in a beautiful stranger that completely turns her life upside down. *AH, B/E

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 23 – Words: 54,938 – Reviews: 577 – Favs: 217 – Follows: 363 – Updated: 08-29-13 – Published: 06-28-13 – id: 9435225

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 by secamimom

coming home to you

*Made by Cared*

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 ~ 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*

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!

*Reviews by Cared*

This FanFiction Friday I have three wonderful stories all set to the backdrop of World War 2. Each of these talented authors have penned tales that are not only extremely entertaining to read, but interestingly informative as history seeps effortlessly from the pages. I salute solostintwilight, Camilla10 and Jennde, for it’s obvious they undertook an amazing amount of historical research to produce such an authentic feel for that tumultuous time, and seamlessly blended it into heartfelt love stories featuring our favourite characters. There is something bittersweet about seeing the seed of love shoot up from such harsh ground and then blossom against the odds.

Letters of Corporal Masen ~ Writing to offer a bit of home to a soldier overseas, she discovers words can bind a friendship. Lonely in war torn Europe, he finds hope in letters from a stranger. What happens when the war is over?

Rated:Fiction M – English – Hurt/Comfort – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 37 – Words: 89,350 – Reviews: 6,485 – Favs: 1,782 – Follows: 1,517 – Updated: 11-11-12 – Published: 08-26-12 – Status: Complete – id: 8467119

I was compelled to include this romantic story, although I doubt there are many left in the fandom who haven’t read it. So, to the handful of ladies who have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Corporal Masen – this is for you.

I couldn’t help but smile and sigh happily as I pondered how much to share about this gorgeously written and entirely captivating story. Not much at all is best I think; this seemingly simple yet intertwined plot is best revealed chapter by delicious chapter.

So, what’s it all about?

Bella undertakes writing to a soldier to boost his morale and in the words of solostintwilight,… “A patriotic gesture to offer a bit of support from home turns into a search for something more. A lonely solider discovers something worth fighting for in the words of a stranger.” Do I even need to tell you the soldier in question is one Corporal Edward Masen?

Edward’s first response…

LETTER TO CORP.MASEN

Their relationship develops through correspondence alone but their love is no less real for it. Bella finds a purpose; Edward finds a reason to fight to survive.  The bond they forge is so strong that although they have never met in person, they have belief in each other and in their love. You know the expression: true loves never runs smooth, well, this is never truer than when facing the vagrancies of war, and for Edward and Bella, giving up on one another is not an option, and in the end…read it to find out.

Oh, and one more thing. There are no lemons in this beautiful love story and the amazing thing is, I didn’t notice their absence at all and neither will you.

Finding Home ~ Edward & Bella are lifelong friends. At 18, just as their true feelings for each other are coming to fruition, tragedy strikes and the US is thrust into World War II. Will Edward and Bella’s love be enough to see them through a world war? Rated M, OOC.

This is a continuation of the Age of Edward one-shot, Infamy.

Rated:Fiction M – English – Romance – Edward & Bella – Chapters: 28 – Words: 183,043 – Reviews: 2,850 – Favs: 1,758 – Follows: 949 – Updated: 08-16-10 – Published: 07-30-09 – Status: Complete – id: 5262540

Finding Home is a beautifully written tale of life-long friends becoming more. Their bliss is short-lived as their lives are immediately turned upside down by the consequences of Pearl Harbor. Suddenly, their neat, prospective future lies in ruins.  Edward enlists in the Navy and proposes to Bella, thus setting an unchartered and choppy course for the pair…

“Bella, the Navy lost a lot of men today, and they need to be replaced. My training will be fast-tracked, and I’ll be ready in six weeks. It won’t be a full education, but I can always go back after the war.” He moved his eyes from mine, and almost whispered, “I leave tomorrow.”

It took me a minute to process his words, and when I did, I shook my head and tried to pull away from him as my tears become full on sobs.

He pulled me back to him, enveloping me in his arms as he spoke softly but fiercely into my ear. “No, Bella. You listen to me. I love you. We will get through this. I need you to believe that; I need you to believe in me. Please. I can’t do this without you.”

When my sobs died down, he pulled away from me, but only enough to take my face in both of his hands. “After the six weeks, I’ll get 5 days leave. I’m sure my mother can put together a wedding in six weeks. Please say you’ll marry me, Bella. I need to know I have you waiting for me. We can get married here at the house, or on the beach; whatever you want.”

This story contains it all: there is drama and romance, there is love and loss; there is also fear of failure – oh, and there is a war that needs to be lived through. Life for a serving officer and the ‘little woman’ left at home is not sugar-coated and neither is the relationship. For me, the strength of this story is their struggle, their personal battle for the survival of their relationship against the odds in a war torn world. Bella had to develop into a strong and independent woman in order to survive. While I really admire her for that, a returning Edward has problems adjusting to the person his wife has become, as he also suffers from his own personal trauma.

Finding Home deals with the gritty reality of living in and subsequently returning from war, but don’t doubt how hopeful and hot this fic is too. Yes, I said hot! Sex was not invented in the 60’s – think of the film “Pearl Harbor” ladies. ‘Nuff said!

The Parachutist by Camilla10

*Made by Federico*

*Made by Federico*

The Parachutist ~ It is 1943 and WW II is devastating Europe. Edward Masen is a 23 years old American parachutist sent by the OSS on a secret mission, meant to help the partisans fighting the Nazis in Northern Italy. There he meets a girl concealing a terrible secret. They fall passionately in love and plan to marry as soon as Italy is liberated. However, while going back to the Allied lines and trying to reach Anzio, where the Anglo American forces are struggling to break through Germans’ opposition, Edward finds his nemesis, in the form of two Volturi warriors.

Edward becomes a newborn vampire, fierce, desperate and bloodthirsty. Will he succumb forever to his inner monster or will he be able to recover at least some of his lost humanity? Will he see his love again and resist the urge to kill her?

Categories: Twilight, Alternate Universe  Characters: Edward  Genre: Supernatural Language: English Chapters: 33 Completed: Yes  Word count: 65856  Read Count: 5722

Now, after reading that summary, with such an extensive overview of the plot, I don’t want to give much more away. I will, though, say this fic is unique and that is no lie. Camilla10 says about Edward…“I am trying to keep him in canon, despite the very different circumstances; he is his usual guilt ridden self, chaste and pensive. And he has a latent mind reading gift. But, how funny, he has a problem with spilling blood. This might change, unfortunately.”

Yes, Edward is canon, this story has romance and adventure just as Twilight does, the situation seems impossible for our young lovers, but the backdrop of war, witnessing the change for Edward from human to vampire, Bella being the one who harbours a secret, all make this story something different. The author, a native Italian, shares and uses memories of the period from her own relatives, she married a son of a Resistance heroine, and those personal touches add greatly to this fast paced and moving story.

Edward and Isetta getting to know one another…

Isetta is curious, and so I tell her more about America, about the different characteristics of the different States, such as cheese making in Wisconsin and the wineries in California. As I speak she looks enchanted. I am also enchanted. She is more than pretty, she is subtly beautiful, with dark tresses, a heart shaped face and the deep brown eyes of a doe. She is funny, and she is also puzzling. I sense a mystery about her, and would like to know her better.

I’m not surprised The Parachutist won second place in the Shimmer Awards 2011 as Outstanding Story. For me the moments of tenderness shining bright amid the horror make it a worthy winner.

And now for something completely different…

Mud, Sweat, and Beers by SparrowNotes24

*Made by GossipLips*

*Made by GossipLips*

Mud, Sweat, and Beers ~ Boot camp in the freezing winter sounds like hell on earth, but is there anything that would make it bearable? Bring on the sexy soldiers! A little bit of fun, a smidgen of angst, and a whole bucket load of muddy lovin’. All Human.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 25 – Words: 102,926 – Reviews: 1,226 – Favs: 794 – Follows:  1,362 – Updated: 05-06-13 – Published: 09-10-12 – id: 8515332

Mud, Sweat, and Beers is not a Militaryward fic in the strict sense of the word, but it’s close enough and such fun, that I had to sneak it in.

Bella and Rosalie are American exchange students attending an English university for a year.  They are obviously intelligent girls as they are studying Criminology & Psychology; it appears they are loyal and have other admirable qualities, all good things, but what struck me from chapter one, these are girls I’d love to have hung out with in my youth. *Cue a chorus of Girls Just Want To Have Fun sung loudly in my best Cyndi Lauper voice.*

Another admirable, enviable, and indeed most important quality these girls possess is that they can spot a hot soldier from 50 paces.  That’s no mean feat to be sniffed at ladies. Agreed? And so “Operation Sex-me-up, Soldiers” is born.  Commander Hale plans the operation with military precision: she requisitions the necessary gear (think high heels and short skirts), takes no prisoners, and the rather reluctant recruit Swan is press-ganged into service. Alice needs no encouragement to sign up as she also has a certain man in uniform fixed within her sights and plans some strategic moves of her own. I should add it’s time for the hilarious antics, witty banter, risqué innuendo, and smexy times to commence too.

Edward is enigmatic, intelligent, manly, and HOT – yes that is with a capital H, a capital O and a capital T! Smugward wants to put Bella through her paces, although Bella is undeniably drawn to him, he comes across to her as cocky, and so initially she is determined not to become just a notch on his belt. The resultant UST reaches Code Red levels. Hehe, the poor girl shows great resistance but is soon recruited by her traitorous body into the “Cullen Crotch Appreciation Society”.

You know how in Twilight and in fanfic it’s all swoony when chivalrous Edward offers Bella his jacket, she inhales and it’s all so perfect. SparrowNotes24 certainly puts a unique stamp on that oh so magic of moments…

Cullen stood up and pulled his waterproof jacket off. “Here, take this.”

“I’m okay. Honestly, I’m not cold.”

“Take it. I can see you shaking.”

“I’m not shaking ’cause I’m cold, I’m just …”

“Just put the damn jacket on will you. Jesus H you’re so stubborn.” He shoved it into my hands. “I’m not being responsible for someone catching pneumonia as well as a broken wrist.”

A frown formed between my eyes in response to his comment, as I pulled his jacket over my head. I’d like to say that as I put it on, his intoxicating scent surrounded me, a delicious mix of wood smoke and spices that exuded his masculinity. But it didn’t. It smelled like crap: a combination of sweat, grass and damp clothes. I wrinkled my nose in distaste.

He chuckled. “You can blame Emmett for that. He was on washing duty and left all our kits drying in a heap on the floor.”

See why I’m enjoying this fic so much?  Now while it’s true there is much humour and lightness, as the relationships develop and the characters are revealed to us and to each other, the tenor of the story deepens. Some things don’t change but romance and love, low-level angst stemming from demons from the past, and fear of an uncertain future, are all skillfully blended into the mix. Love is the most powerful ingredient and as the lovely Bella says to Edward, We’ve just been given a few obstacles to get over first. Like one of your boot camps.”

The nick-name of Muddy Smugward is self explanatory, but I call him Dirtytalkingward for a different reason. *wink*

This highly amusing story is currently at 28 entertaining chapters with an expected 1 or 2 more plus epi to go. Take my advice and join up for the remainder of the term.

It is with the utmost respect that today I review for you two Militaryward fics that have touched my heart and I have faith you will thoroughly enjoy. Both of these compelling stories depict a strong and courageous Armyward and the many facets of military life that have an effect both on the soldiers and their families. ❤

Tip of the Spear by Robsmyyummy Cabanaboy

*Made by CaraNo*

*Made by CaraNo*

Tip of the Spear ~ The “tip of the spear” – in the military, they are the front line; the initial attack that draws first blood. As a CACO in the United States Marine Corps, Capt. Masen delivers that leading blow, too. He’s often faced with handling the collateral damage this life can bring. He’s accepted that love & commitment aren’t for him…until she opens the door.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 15 – Words: 93,219 – Reviews: 2,446 – Favs: 1,086 – Follows: 1,787 – Updated: 05-01-13 – Published: 11-05-12 – id: 8677928

Before I start my review, I’d like to ask you to please take a moment and reread the summary because it’s the crux of this story, and where the author explains the importance and significance of the title, as this is a true Militaryward fic.

Tip of the Spear begins with a Prologue exhibiting the sad reality of Edward’s job as twenty-eight-year-old Captain Edward Masen, a CACO – Casualty Assistance Calls Officer – in the United States Marine Corps, where he visits a young wife, Mrs. Matthews, to tell her that her husband was killed in the line of duty. I’m not going to lie, it was very emotional to read, and I cried, but you can really feel this Edward; his emotions, his caring, his compassion for these people in which he is sharing such sorrow. And then in chapter two, when that woman, sadly, becomes a pregnant Bella Newton … I cried again …

Twenty minutes after arriving at Isabella Newton’s door and telling her that her husband won’t be coming home again, her two friends, the Whitlocks, arrived to comfort and support her through the shock while Chaplain Gillen and I remained to answer questions and help her through the first of many steps facing her over the next couple of months.

We learn that Bella drifts through the funeral of her late husband, Sgt. Michael Newton, but the loss and stress is too great, and she loses her baby boy. Life goes on for both Bella and Edward, and then the story jumps ahead, “One year. Two years. Three years later.” … to where we see Bella getting ready to go on the adventure of a lifetime. A trip to Hawaii that she was supposed to share with her late husband, but is now going to brave alone. And as she boards the military plane, that is when she again meets Captain Masen, who is on a well-deserved vacation of his own, and the rest, as they say, is history.

They reconnect as friends and end up going on this exhilarating journey together. Their adventures know no bounds, but I will let you read them for yourselves, because I could not do justice to them in a review. Robsmyyummy Cabanaboy presents the settings so well; she gives us the most excellent, vivid descriptions, so it’s like you are there with Adventurella and Spearward, enjoying their Hawaiian explorations. But, don’t forget, this is labeled Romance, and there might just be some of that hot, lemony goodness, too. *wink*

I’d also like to mention that, even though I know today’s post is focused on Militaryward, and this story is definitely that, for me, it is also, one of the few fics I’ve read where I can honestly say I have a Bella girl-crush. Bella, in this story, personifies, IMHO, what a woman who has literally lost everything can overcome and become, regardless of how much has happened in her life. She’s really an inspirational Bella … on so many levels, and I know she’s going to be very memorable for me. She’s a very strong-willed and spirited Bella, who, through her huge heart and adventurous spirit, shows Edward life when all he’s seen for years is death …

Excerpt from chapter 14:

I lift our hands and bring his palm to my lips. “I can. You said it yourself the other night. You’re a changed man, Cap’n.”

We’re silent for a moment.

“That I am. I meant what I said earlier; this place has been like a revival for me. Hell, I’ve been changing slowly but surely since that close encounter with your backpack on the tarmac in California. Aside from a bloody nose, you’ve ended up giving me more of a jumpstart to my heart.”

I smile, feeling my eyes get watery. “I’ve just tried to open your eyes a bit.” I squeeze his hand. “Your amazing heart was pumping long before I walked down that aisle on the plane, Edward.”

“Maybe,” he pauses, “…but now there’s a rhythm and a beat— a soundtrack with your name that plays on a loop.”

A tear falls over the bridge of my nose and I try to sniff quietly, but apparently loud enough that it alarms him and he leans over to look at my face.

“Hey,” he speaks gently and rolls me toward his body. Swiping his thumb across the tear stain, he shakes his head. “No tears, Clementine.”

I nod and swallow, my eyes brimming with more after hearing his comforting voice.

“We still have Maui and then Oahu again.” He raises his eyebrows, asking that I acknowledge his well-made point. “Lots more opportunities for making memories, just like you said. That’s what this trip is about; no regrets, right?”

I shake my head, freeing a few more tears. “Not a single one.”

He leans down and kisses me chastely. It lingers for a few seconds, and then he gives me another soft peck. His gaze is locked on mine as our eyes fill in the blanks for everything we haven’t had the courage to say yet. With confidence and sincerity he ensures, “We’ll figure it out.”

*sigh* Yeah, I love these two … their connection also knows no bounds.

Tip of the Spear is a compelling read right from the Prologue; it immediately pulls at your heart-strings but then, through the journey of the beautifully presented characters of Adventurella and Spearward, it exemplifies hope, healing and love all within an exciting storyline. And because it’s told from both EPOV and BPOV we get to experience it all from two very different and unique perspectives, and this just makes it all the better! Please enjoy this beautiful Militaryward WIP that updates regularly; I just adore the feeling of peace and love this story portrays!

Departures by TheFicChick ~ “Every day for the rest of my life, I will wonder how kissing a virtual stranger goodbye could have felt like a hello.”

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Edward & Bella – Chapters: 10 – Words: 95,090 -Reviews: 3,807 – Favs: 3,473 – Follows: 2,901 Reviews: 3,826 – Favs: 3,494 – Follows: 2,906 – Updated: 01-04-13 – Published: 10-20-12 – Status: Complete – id: 8625604

Some of you may have already read this short 10 chapter Armyward that started out as a one shot, but if not, then it’s a must read Military fic. Seriously, this beautiful, heart-warming love story that begins in O’Hare Airport in Chicago, goes far beyond its boundaries of the tarmac as it transcends time and space to make you believe in the true power of love between two virtual strangers.

When I read each chapter, I was either smiling big, literally laughing out loud, or crying, because I was so emotionally invested in the story and its wonderful, main characters of a strong and brave Edward, our Armyward, and an adventurous, loving Bella. They share such a fun and sweet airport adventure as they get to know each other, and then an intense and telling correspondence when he is away in Afghanistan; all the makings of a fabulous love story to make you swoon!

Here’s a taste of the wonderful writing and sensual connection shared by our beloved Militaryward and his Bella …

Despite the banter and the innuendo-laden conversation and the pancakes, Edward Cullen is a stranger in an airport. We’re not sharing anything more than an unexpected layover before we fly in opposite directions; once the snow stops and the travel starts, I’ll never see him again. The thought is physically painful.

“Listen, Bella.” He turns to face me, shifting his weight in one fluid motion to the shoulder still resting against the wall, and his face is as serious as I’ve seen it since he was recounting his decision to join the Army. “If this were any other day, and if I weren’t flying off to fiddle with bombs in the middle of the desert, I’d ask for your number.”

I attempt to swallow against the lump that lodges itself firmly in my throat. “If you weren’t flying off to fiddle with bombs in the middle of the desert, I’d give it to you.” My voice is barely more than a whisper.

Green eyes are pulling me in, and it takes all of the self-control I possess not to touch him. He watches me intently, and after a minute I see his throat muscles bob with a swallow. “If you gave it to me, I’d call. The same day. I wouldn’t even try to do the whole ‘play-it-cool-give-it-a-few-days’ thing.”

“I’ve always hated that game,” I breathe.

“I’d take you out for Italian. There’s a great little mom-and-pop restaurant near the house I grew up in that has the best ravioli on the planet.” My heart aches, then begins to race as his large hand cups my cheek. “It would be really hard for me to say goodnight without kissing you.” His thumb runs along my jawline.

“I’m not averse to kissing on the first date,” I confess, and his eyes blaze.

“If I’m misreading this, stop me now,” he breathes, and I can’t see the green of his eyes anymore because they are hidden behind the long lashes sweeping against his cheekbones as he gazes at my mouth. I stay silent in unspoken permission, and after a beat, his warm mouth covers mine. I can taste the remnants of strawberry on his lips, which are warm and inquisitive and insistent. His hand slides from my jaw to the back of my neck as his other one joins it, and I bring my own hands to the back of his neck, his short hair sliding through my fingers. He angles his head to deepen the kiss, and I rise to my tiptoes as he pulls us upright, abandoning the support of the wall. I feel his mouth open against mine, and his tongue whispers a trace against my lower lip; as I open my mouth in response, a small whimper escapes me. He meets my tongue with his, and instantly I feel heat like a wild elevator climbing and plummeting through my body. His breath hitches into my mouth, and what was gentle suddenly becomes demanding, his mouth moving smoothly over mine, lips and tongues dancing together.

His hands move from the back of my head down to my lower back, and he bands his arms around me, groaning softly into the kiss as he pulls me flush against his body. I think I whimper in response, and he deepens the kiss further, his tongue exploring the warm cavern of my mouth. I lose track of time as we stand there, shamelessly making out in an airport terminal, and it isn’t until he slows the pace of the kiss, his tongue receding to gently trace my lower lip before retreating altogether, placing a borderline chaste kiss to my mouth, that I regain my bearings.

So lovely and romantic, and such a divine flow to the words; one of the true pleasures of reading TheFicChick!

OPERATION: Break the Dawn by katinki 

OPERATION: Break the Dawn ~ An experimental weapon, one of the most lethal chemicals ever created, has been stolen. It’s final destination is unknown, but there’s no doubt the powerful faction behind the theft is intent on one thing: War. But they didn’t count on a fight. A team of Marines, led by Capt. Edward Cullen and accompanied by Dr. Isabella Swan, isn’t about to let the world go up in flames. AH.

Follow/FavoriteRated: Fiction M – English – Edward & Bella – Chapters: 7 – Words: 40,359 – Reviews: 1,032 – Favs: 803 – Follows: 1,203 – Updated: 03-07-13 – Published: 08-06-12 – id: 8399608 WiP.

Oh good Lord! Captain Edward Cullen is just so commanding, mesmerising, strong and stoic. You really believe he’s going to save the world. Really. Really. This is gritty, dirty, the imagery sends you to hot, sandy, uncomfortable places, but it’s also intriguing and leaves you desperate for more.

Katinki has captured the sense of fear that Bella must have, as a scientist more used to working in a lab accompanying experienced and stoic Marines; some situations they encounter are terrifying. She also conveys the Marines’ admiration for Bella’s bravery, and their kindness when she is understandably overwhelmed. The whole story is infused with humour and the banter that you’d expect from a close-knit team – a team hand-picked to do the jobs that no one else can. It is, of course, made up of our favourite characters and they suit their roles beautifully. They clearly see Bella as a liability and their initial interaction is filled with frustration.

Edward’s fists balled inside his pockets. Like he’d repeatedly told both the General and those idiots at the CIA, regardless of her expertise, Dr. Isabella Swan had no business whatsoever on this plane or in those cammies. No matter how good she looked in them.

“Alright,” Emmett started again as he plopped back down in the bright blue seat beside her. Twisting halfway around, he blindly dug through one of the boxes behind them, grabbed two bottles of water, and tossed one of them to their scientist. “Rule number one. You don’t ever go outside that Humvee without your plates and your helmet. Got that?” He didn’t wait for her to answer and his instructions came out more like a series of barked orders. “You only take that shit off if one of us tells you you can. Clear?”

The woman’s face scrunched into a comically sour expression.

“Rule number two. You don’t go anywhere unless one of us tells you you can. Not even to piss.”

The hard, straight line of Edward’s lips broke when Bella huffed. “Yeah, got that one already. No unsupervised pissing.”

Emmett shook his head before cracking open his own water bottle and throwing back half the contents in a single chug. “Look, the main thing is just stay behind one of us at all times and do what we tell you to do. If we take a knee, you take a knee. If we drop and crawl, you drop and crawl. If we tell you to stay put, stay fucking put. If we tell you –”

Bella cut him off with a sharp, “I got it. Trust me,” and this time Edward had to school his mouth shut to keep from laughing at the hot spark of her irritation. Maybe not a lamb, he corrected. A pissed off kitten was more like it.

Across the deck, leaning against the opposite bulkhead with her arms crossed over her chest, Rosalie glared and mouthed, “This is fucking stupid.”

The slight incline of Edward’s head was the only indication that he agreed.

“Jazz,” Emmett barked, standing and flicking his bottle cap at the corporal dozing across the aisle. “Go over the gear with her, will ya? I need to talk to the Captain.” Instantly alert, the younger man nodded once before hopping over to take Emmett’s seat.

“Okay, Doc,” Jasper said, not wasting any time, as he quickly burrowed through her pack to locate an item Edward hoped none of them would need to wear. “Gas mask. You ever wore one?”

I must admit, I barely breathe through some chapters! I’m gripped by the action, the tension, the oh-bloody-hell moments! But throughout it all, I’m constantly aware of Edward looking out for Bella, ever watchful, always protecting. Their connection is palpable even though he’s a man of few words…it’s probably worth mentioning that he’s swoonworthy…did I mention commanding? Oh boy, is he commanding!

Katinki really strikes the balance well, the story of the building trust, the common goal, the sense of purpose all made more real, believable, by the research she’s done, the details she’s included. It’s fiction, but grounded in the reality of war.

At seven chapters in, I know there’s plenty more to enjoy.

Orange Kisses and Peppermint Hearts by SparrowNotes24

*Made by Cared*

*Made by Cared*

Orange Kisses and Peppermint Hearts ~ He is gone, leaving her with the bitter sense of absence and the sweet taste of his name on her tongue. Then, a mysterious letter arrives, bursting with the flavors of a love story. Will the words that grace the page change the course of her life?

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance – Chapters: 1 – Words: 10,303 – Reviews: 147 – Published: 3-4-13 – Bella & Edward – Complete – One shot.

Ohhhh…this is a story that fills the air with romance, whimsy, nostalgia – and hope. Honestly, when you read it you’ll be sighing like a lovestruck starlet, reaching for your prettiest frock and swooning over the love of a man and the lengths he’ll go to show his wife he loves her. *sigh*

SparrowNotes24 has written such a beautiful, original piece – Bella is a chocolatier specialising in only the best, with a friendly attitude and creative flair. Together with her assistant, Rose, she creates a rather magical atmosphere in her shop, Cocoa Swan…when one day Bella receives the first of a series of letters requesting her help.

“This just came in for you.” She smiled and then left, the door swinging behind her. I could hear her crooning along to the song on the radio; her breathy voice was wonderful to listen to.

I brushed my hands off on my apron before quickly sliding my fingers under the edge of the envelope and ripping it open. My hopes were dashed when I saw it was just an order, handwritten in neat looping cursive.

Dear Cocoa Swan,

I hope you can help me organize the perfect anniversary gift for my wife.

I’d like a selection of chocolates that reflect all the things that made me fall madly and deeply in love with her. I have to admit that I’m no chocolate connoisseur, but she is, and she always tells me that your shop does the best. 

I apologize for the lateness in my request, and I have a feeling that I may think of some other ideas to add to the final box of chocolates once I’ve sent this. I hope this won’t be too inconvenient for you.

I thought it would help you choosing the chocolates if I told you a little bit about her.

The best place to start would be the moment I knew that she was the one for me.

We were sat in a coffee shop, her hands wrapped around a cup of frothy cappuccino, while she told me about her day. Excitement glittered in her eyes, and I couldn’t stop myself from reaching out and brushing the leftover foam from her lips with my thumb and tasting the sweet richness of the coffee.

She was mouth-watering.

Astounded, I turned the thin paper over in my hand, looking for more. The other side was blank, and the envelope was empty.

I poked my head out and gestured for Rose to come into the workshop after she’d finished serving a customer. I re-read the letter again. The disappointment I’d felt that it wasn’t for me was replaced by admiration for this man and a deep longing for the love that was absent in my own life. 

When Rose came, I showed her the letter. As she read it, her face softened, and when she got to the bottom, she reacted exactly the same way I did, searching for the ending. “There’s no more?” 

I shook my head, “Nothing. Perhaps there was another page, and he’s misplaced it?”

She clutched the letter to her chest, swooning. “How romantic.” 

“It’s beautiful, but there’s no name or address. What should we do?” He hadn’t even requested what he wanted, but I’d already visualized cappuccino swirls before I’d finished reading.

“I think you should make something. Just in case he arrives to collect them. We can always pick from the counter to make up a box if it turns out there was another page?” 

As the mysterious letters arrive we learn about this romantic man’s love for his wife, their special moments, his treasured memories – you really will swoon – and taking inspiration from his words Bella creates the perfect confections to evoke the magic of his love for him to present to his wife.

I don’t think it spoils anything that Orange Kisses and Peppermint Hearts is in the MilitaryWard post, but let’s just say SparrowNotes24 keeps us guessing on several points throughout the story, which definitely builds the mystery and anticipation! It’s a delightful tale and one to savour on a warm afternoon while the birds are singing and there’s romance in the air…I guarantee it will make your heart happy!

By Your Leave ~ Honorably discharged Sergeant Major Edward Cullen meets widow Bella Black and her young son Seth. The ad says room for rent, but maybe they have more to offer each other than just space. *Complete*

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Chapters: 22 – Words: 61,862 – Reviews: 1,764 – Favs: 1,528 – Follows: 1,953 – Updated: 02-25-13 – Published: 08-16-12 – Status: Complete – id: 8436114

Ally Vera and Gingerandgreen both loved this story so much, they decided to flail over it together…

AV ~ I am just going to come out and say this first ..  Oh. My. Goodness.  Sergeant Major Edward Cullen is HOT.  I spent quite a bit of the BPOV chapters of By Your Leave fanning myself.  To see him through her eyes and her thoughts about him…  well, *phew*

G&G ~ I agree Ally. Edward’s always hot and sexy, but in By Your Leave, he is the definition of delicious.

AV ~ I really think I would be great friends with this Bella – I love her trains of thought (extract from chapter 7)

“Edward’s a wet dream in his long-sleeved midnight blue coat with gold buttons lined down the front. His angular jaw accented by a firm collar. Several ribbons hang on the right side of his chest. I only recognized one. His purple heart. I wanted to kiss it. It’s what brought him here.

The scarlet and gold chevron on his left arm shows his status as Sergeant Major with three pointed, gold stripes on top, four curved gold stripes on the bottom, and incased in the middle, is the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor. The same symbol he has inked into his skin on his left shoulder.

I remember.

How could I forget?

A midnight blue belt is wrapped around his narrow waist. The golden ‘M’ on the front is shining. Bleached, white gloves cover his large hands. And, I would eat off his black dress shoes, they’re so clean. The whole thing is topped off with his white and black hat.

I have to try and block thoughts of him pounding into me while his dog tags flap against his sweaty, naked chest. I’m not sure how long I stood there staring at him, before the clearing of a throat caught my attention.

“What?” I ask, lamely, not even knowing if I had been asked a question.”

AV ~ Okay, now that my inappropriate thoughts are out of the way, let me tell you what else I loved about the story, apart from the good Sergeant Major’s body.  By Your Leave deals with some very serious matters, like military death and the aftermath of that devastation, but it still is a feelgood story. Jonesn does a brilliant job of keeping the story beautifully balanced – there is sadness, sweetness, heat and depth.

G&G ~ The special draw of Militaryward is the hero we delight in worshiping. By Your Leave is full of heroism. I love how Bella is as much of a hero as any of the military characters, even though she doesn’t see herself that way. Of course, Edward is full of humility too.

AV ~ Jones has created a firecracker in Seth, Bella’s son – he provides quite a bit of light entertainment.

G&G ~ Oh, Seth’s a gorgeous little boy. It takes great skill to make a child age appropriate, and Seth is perfect. I feel as though I walked home from school with him myself.

AV ~ The connection between Edward and Bella is strong in this story.  The more you read – the more you just know that these two are just meant to be – someone above was guiding them together.

G&G ~ Absolutely. And to me, that is the crucial element of Twific. Edward and Bella are destined to be together, no matter what has been before or what the future holds. You just know.

This is Bella talking to Seth in chapter 3:

“Well, someone came to see the spare room today, and they decided that they want to live with us. I was showing them the house, and that’s why I’m late.” He thinks it over as he chews, then lays a hand on my shoulder.

“Is it a boy or a girl?”

“A boy. Well, a man.”

“Does he have kids?” His eyes light up in anticipation, and I realize I don’t even know the answer to that question.

“You know, I don’t know. He didn’t have any with him, but we can ask him if he has any that might visit.” His eyes dim a bit, but I can tell he hasn’t lost all hope for playmates.

“Do you want to go meet him? He’s going to have dinner with us.” This excites him, and with a mouth full of fruit snacks he jumps up and down nodding his head. He stops when I grab his hand, telling him not to jump with food in his mouth, and we make our way back home.

As we walk, I wonder what dinner will be like tonight. It will be the first time that there is a third plate on the table. While it should have been for Jake it’s for Edward, the stranger in the spare room. And, I find myself hoping that he’s not a stranger for very much longer.

G&G ~ Mmm, the delectable satisfaction in knowing Edward won’t be a stranger for very long…

By Your Leave is the sort of story that reminds us why we love Militarywards.  Strong men and just as strong (sometimes stronger) women and let’s face it, the thought of Edward in a uniform *thud*.  Over and out from AV and G&G.

My Wounded Soldier by Counselor

*Made by Ro Nordmann*

*Made by Ro Nordmann*

My Wounded Soldier ~ 1866 Edward just home from the war. Neighbor Bella has a tragedy and Edward delivers her baby. Seeing as she’s widowed, marriage makes sense. He doesn’t feel worthy, but he can’t step aside for her suitors. Competition amongst veterans.

Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 77 – Words: 183,065 – Reviews: 4,980 – Favs: 1,600 – Follows: 1,277 – Updated: 06-04-12 – Published: 03-05-12 – Status: Complete – id: 7899031

I don’t know whether I’m going to be able to express how much I love this story. Bear with me while I try.

My Wounded Soldier is about the aftermath of war. It gives us a raw and heavy insight into what violence does to people; but it’s written with such compassion, the story lifts your heart even while it breaks it.

Set at the end of the American Civil War, Edward is a veteran who has seen and lost too much. He comes home to the family farm at his father’s request and – though he can hardly bear to stay at first – quickly gets swept up into the brutal affairs of the neighbourhood.

Chapter one gives us as dramatic a beginning as anything I have ever read. We meet Bella Swan, heavily pregnant and with a young son to protect, challenging another victim of war with a rifle. She kills the man, but not before he’s slain her husband. Stress induces her labour, and all she can think to do is to send her little boy running to fetch our hero.

“Run yonder. North field,” I said. Then I knew not how but I was on my knees. I was gripped in pain again, and I was locked in it unable to move. I could not even lift my head to see if Johnny had high-tailed it for help. But I knew that one was home from the war, that oldest son who never spoke to even say howdy. I’d seen him riding high on the wagon just that morning in the north field. I wagered…he’d be the first one here. I just knew. For he’d been a soldier. And if there were more of these strangers skulking about…well he would know what to do.

“Edward,” I said, for that was his name. I could lift my head now, and my son was still staring. “Johnny…find Edward.”

Enter Edward. What a beautiful, beautiful man. So full of self-hatred, deeply conflicted and painfully wounded, he is the most perfect hero I’ve encountered in Twific. Bella is superb in this story, but Edward is what makes My Wounded Soldier one of my top two stories ever.

Just watch him help a woman who until this moment was pretty much a stranger to him:

“That’s it, honey. You’re the strongest woman I know. My ma would be so proud of you. You’re almost there now, darlin’ girl. Don’t you be afraid. You’ve got to push. Put some muscle in it now.”

She grit her strong little teeth, and I gave her my hand, and she squeezed the juice out of it, and I kept telling her to come on like she was pulling the plow through mud and stone, and she pushed and I had to let go and catch this baby whose whole head and shoulders were out now, and I turned it gentle as I eased it out of her, and my life got washed in one moment, and I knew that somehow God was telling me I wasn’t the most miserable bastard that ever lived. Cause I had touched heaven, and done a good thing…like a priest or something.

So I set that baby on her mama’s chest, and Miss Isabella looked at that girl and laughed a little, then at me, and I had this life cord and the business still running into her to deal with, but for a moment, we just looked at each other and she said, “Thank you.” And I said…nothing in the face of such beauty as that mother and her child. I couldn’t speak.

And that’s just chapter one, people!

I’m sure you’ve heard as many times as I have the advice to ‘show, don’t tell’ when writing. Much of the most popular Fic I’ve read does a whole lot of telling, sometimes telling the same things multiple times  – it’s had me questioning the validity of this advice. But when I read Counselor’s words, I remember how powerful a little ‘showing’ can be. Counselor expresses her stories in such a way as to have you believing you’ve fallen down a wormhole in time, and have landed right there in 1866. My Wounded Soldier is not an easy read, but an exquisitely moving one. I hope I’ve done it a little bit of justice, and persuaded you to give it a go.

MISSION MILITARYWARD

All the stories we’ve selected to review for Militaryward are respectful of the sacrifices men and women throughout time and place make for their countries, and none of them make light of the tragedy of war. The FicSix would also like to highlight the importance of striving for peace. It was authors in the Twifandom who brought attention to the worldwide campaign, Peace One Day. It seems fitting to include it here, in a Militaryward post. Please follow the link, share and spread the word.

Monday Madness~Beanie Rob is Back!!

Hello Everybody *waves*

RobsFan~tasy

Hello Girls! Sorry for my absence lately. For those of you that don’t know, my mom had a stroke and I have been with her for the past 14 days.We are home now and she is doing ok. Not as well as I had hoped but better. It will be a long process to get her her back.

I came up with a post idea of wondering where Rob’s beanie went before mom got sick and Our Boyfriend must have read my mind because he brought the beanie back out that he has not worn for sometime.

We don’t usually use pap pics here at RA outta respect for The Pretty and his privacy but on occasion, if Rob is looking fairly happy and the pic isn’t too invasive into his private life we will use those pics. What surprised me most was trying to find a pic of Rob in his beanie that wasn’t a pap pic or a candid! They were practically impossible to find let me tell ya!!

It seems our boy liked his beanie best in 2006 and 2008. So strap on your seat belt, grab a shamwow and hold on tight cause we are going on a trip back in time with Rob!

What a nice looking young man! Why those eyes are so intense he just might be someone when he grows up!

November 14, 2005 photo mark peterson

Rob looking a little pale and thin and very boyish here in his beanie but he’s just about to steal the hearts of millions of girls and women around the world.

March 13, 2006 leaves the afterparty for the Empire Film Awards at the Cobden Club in West London.

Zipping forward a couple years the beanie makes several appearances in 2008 . Ahhhh…much more handsome and manly here at the ripe old age of 21! Gotta love the scruff, the black V neck T and oh yeah!…that smirk!

Thursday June 26, 2008. Robert Pattinson at Seven night club.

Rob has whipped out the Beanie and black V neck T again and looking a little worried about Camilla’s driving ability in this photo. What ever happened to her anyway? They were tight for awhile in 2008 but I never knew why they stopped hangin out together.

Oh my one of my personal Favs, The black beanie, black leather jacket and the “Plain ‘ol Gravy” T!!!  I am died!!! Scruff and perfectly plump and pouty Pattinson lips!! Have Mercy!! I’d like to sop that man up wit a biscuit! hehehe

Ok I have no idea Why Rob and his friends would hang out in a parking Garage but Damn, I wish I’d have been there! Just look at that gorgeous smile! I think if I’d been there I might have suddenly developed a case of the cold chills just as an excuse to snuggle next to Rob! LOL

September 02, 2008 Robert in a parking garage with a group of animated friends who joked around with the photographers as they snapped away at their good friend.

And who can forget the hottest pics ever, up to that point, The film festival in Rome! Rome Rob in his black beanie and gray helmut lang shirt will be hall of fame hawt forevah! not to mention that smexy “Mother Pucker!”

October 29, 2008 in Rome, Italy Robert Pattinson attends the Ciak Magazine Party at Hotel Exedra

This photo cracks me the F*ck up!! Rob looks like he’s about to go all gangsta on this poor guy and bust a a move *gigglesnort*

November 04, 2008 Robert on his way to the MTVstudios for TRL in New York

And then the beanie just disappeared!! {maybe it’s hanging out with the shiteous nikes, sex boots and sexspenders? Ya think?} From what I can tell from my research it hasn’t been seen since. But then on October 6, 2012 we saw Rob in a beanie once again!! YEAH!! FTMFW!!

October 6, 2012 Rob drills his name into a table

Rumor has it he stole this one from Tom Stu. If that’s true me thinks he’s keeping it LOL because he was spotted in Sydney Australia just yesterday wearing the beanie yet again!

October 21 2012 Sydney Australia BD Promo tour Begins

Does this mean the Beanie days are back?? If so, dare we hope that  maybe, possibly, someday, The Tri-Fecta of Win, the sex boots and sexspenders along with the beanie will return as well?

The Tri-Fecta of WIN!

*crosses both sets of fingers and squunches eyes tightly closed* “Please, Please, Please, Please!”

There were far too many Beanie pics to post them all here but I did include a slide show that has one pic from each of my personal beanie-porn folders and inserted them into a slide show for your drooling pleasure! 🙂

Much Love ❤ to you all!!

Mwah!

Monday Madness ~ Thrill Me Thursday 4series Post. Part 3!

At first I saw only women. Two at the registers, one at the service desk, a few female customers and then I turned down one of the aisles and there he was. A very young Rob looking just like he did in “How to Be”. It stunned me for a moment to see such a young Rob and I just stared at him. He didn’t seem to notice me, he was too involved in his work so I quietly walked away.

I had to get a newspaper and get back to Rita. I shoved the money into the machine and pulled out the paper.

I flipped the front page over to reveal this eyewitness sketch of his eyes,

Apparently the eyewitness had been so captivated by his eyes that she hadn’t gotten any farther than that! Yeah, I knew that feeling all too well! This explained enough of what was going on to send me high-tailing it back to Rita’s office. Ever get that feeling up your spine like you were being watched…maybe even followed?  I stopped at the corner and casually turned to look behind me and there, a little ways back, was the alley Rob coming right at me, still looking pissed! All the other Robs had been really nice, so why did this one want to hurt me? Was it because I saw him coming out of the alley? I saw him straightening his clothes…had he mugged someone? Was he afraid I knew? I panicked and ran out into the street to get away from him and was almost plowed down by a car. I looked frantically about and the only refuge I saw was a Catholic church across the street. I made a beeline for the door and burst inside, almost reaching the front before I turned to watch the doors anxiously.

“Ah, lass. Is there something I can do for ya, now?” I heard that familiar voice  say behind me.

I knew my mouth was working, but no sound was coming out of it.

“There, there, lass. It’ll be all right. Let’s have a seat now, shall we, and tell me what it be that has ya so worked up,” he said, patting me on the shoulder. This Rob was stunning in his kindness and alluring with his accent. He seemed much safer than alley Rob, in any case.

“I’m being followed!” I blurted out in a panic.

“Is that so? And what did this person look like?” he asked gently.

“Uh, well, he looks a little like you, but kind of wild and angry looking.” I replied, not at all sure what he would do. Being a man of the cloth, I decided to risk it, but then again, if the paper was right, he wasn’t a man at all, was he? So then, his oath as a Catholic priest meant nothing, right?

“Really now?” he said with a chuckle.

“Yes. Father.  Would you mind looking outside to see if he’s still there?” I asked.

“Not at’ll, lass. Why don’t you have a seat and rest for a moment. You look a wee bit frazzled. I’ll be back. You say he looks like myself?” he queried.

“Yes, but his hair is all messy…in an attractive kind of way, and he’s wearing a black shirt and a light gray jacket.” I told him, still stunned to find myself talking to Rob, knowing all the while it wasn’t really Rob at all…not to mention he was a priest, of all things! Leave it to me, when every man on earth turns into Rob, I’d wind up with a priest! I watched him walk away, unable to help myself from admiring him, then admonishing myself for perving over a priest while I sat in the heart of the Catholic Church! Oh, I was so going to Hell!  I clutched the newspaper to my chest, afraid he might see it and make the connection. Anxiously waiting for him to return, a part of me was terrified that priest Rob would return with alley Rob and half a dozen other Robs to do away with me! I could see tomorrow’s headline: “LOCAL WOMAN LOOSES MIND, THEN VANISHES”

Priest Rob returned, walking slowly with his hands clasped behind his back. He was smiling at me like you’d smile at an elderly person with senility.

“There be no one out there fittin’ that description, lass,” he stated.

Not sure I was safe anywhere, my only voice of reason, the only person who knew for certain that I wasn’t losing my mind, was Rita.  I needed to get back to her!

“Well, I’m sorry I bothered you, Father. Perhaps I was mistaken. I’ve had a rather unusual morning. Um, I’ll just be going now.  Thank you so much for your kindness,” I said.

The whole time, I was sidling past him, clutching the newspaper and backing away towards the doors I had entered through.

“No bother at’ll, Lass. God Bless you!” he said, turning and walking back into the church.

Oh, this didn’t make any sense at all! I rushed out the door, taking just a moment on the steps to check for alley Rob.  I didn’t see him anywhere so I ran the rest of the way back to Rita’s office. I couldn’t wait to sit down and go over the paper with her and find out what the feck was really going on. Aliens? For reals? Rob Aliens?? What did they want?

As the elevator doors opened on her floor, I made my way to Rita’s desk only to find she wasn’t there! Oh no! I scanned the tops of the cubicles but I couldn’t see anything. Then I heard her familiar laugh and followed the sound…to Gary’s cubicle! She was sitting on his lap! The traitor!

“RITA! What are you doing?” I yelled at her.

Gary/Rob swiveled his chair around, with Rita still on his lap, and they both grinned at me.

“Oh! Hi, RF! It’s all good, BB!” she giggled.

I didn’t know what to do or say. I guess I was completely on my own now. I turned and ran for the elevator.

“You go, girl! Get yours!” she trilled after me.

Just as the elevator doors closed, I heard her squeal with delight! Or was that actually a squee? Back on the street, I ran to my car, climbed in and locked all the doors. I took off not knowing where I was going or what I was going to do. Since I hadn’t had time to read the paper and couldn’t read it while I was driving, I turned the radio on. If aliens had truly invaded, surely it would be on the local news. Of course, the voice over the radio was a familiar one. Not as familiar as in the voice I heard every day on the radio, but familiar as in…it was Rob’s voice reporting the news. I could just picture him there in the radio station now.

“Yes, it’s true! Aliens have landed right here on Earth. According to their spokes…uh, person, they have been studying us for a while now, focusing mostly on the women of our planet because there are no females where they come from. They find our women a most interesting subject and, in studying them, they found that the consensus among them was that their men were neither as romantic, handsome, or adoring as they wanted them to be. The aliens have a very unobtrusive way of reading women’s minds and discovered that nine out of ten women found the actor, Robert Pattinson, to be the most attractive, sexiest man alive. They admired everything about him and he seemed to possess the very things their men lacked. So, purely as a study, these “aliens” set about transforming the men of this planet into Robert Pattinson look-a-likes. They look like him, act like him, talk like him, and they have included every character Mr. Pattinson has played in the movie industry so that there would be a variety for our women to choose from. Apparently, some women preferred Jacob Jankowski, while others preferred the more sexually voracious Georges DuRoy.  Still others preferred the original Edward Cullen character. The men are thrilled because now their women are perving over them instead of the movie star.

“How does the real Robert Pattinson feel about all this, you might ask yourself. Well, we managed to contact him and this was his response…

“YEAH! Are you serious? I love it! Now I can go anywhere and do anything without worrying about the fuckin’ paps hounding me, or hordes of screaming fan girls mobbing me! Now, everyone has their own R-Pattz they can live out their fantasies with! I ain’t even mad!”

Well, that sounded like something the real Rob would say! Typical word vomit! I pulled the car over and parked. I was only a few blocks from the office, so I decided to go back and talk to Rita again. That is, if I could pull her away from “Gary”! I got out of the car and started walking. I wasn’t sure how I felt about all of this. Was it really such a bad thing? Women all over the world were having their greatest wish fulfilled! Starting to feel slightly better, I looked up to see just how many “men” were left in the city and how many had already been transformed into one Rob or another. I was momentarily stunned and frozen in place to see Rome Rob across the street. Oh, God! He was definitely giving me the “come hither” look.

 

I glanced around to make sure it was me he was looking at and I was right! He nodded his head for me to cross the street towards him and I could feel the blush fill my cheeks. Before I even had time to think, alley Rob caught my attention. He was a little further down the road and hadn’t seen me yet. I didn’t know why he was so angry, but I wasn’t taking any chances.

To be CONCLUDED Tomorrow!!!

Much Love to you all,

RobsFan~tasy

RobsFan~tasy

 

Hey Ladies as you may have noticed the posts here at RA have gotten fewer and farther between. 

 

 

I’ve been worried how you all will handle it.

Don’t worry we aren’t going Anywhere! But we do need some help.

 

Lately I’ve been wracking mah bwains to come up with different post ideas.

 

While I have in NO WAY lost my Rob Mojo {He’s still the sexiest thing alive!!} I spend hours pondering over what to post about.

Try as I might I struggle with it all the time.

After awhile I start to get really upset that I am disappointing you ladies.

One thing we pride our selves on is NOT doing what everyone else is doing. We’re here for the fun of it and for the love of Rob.

So we’re asking ya’ll if you’d like to Join the RA TEAM and post a weekly (or even an occaisional) Blog post About Robert Pattinson (or even a guest post) Please Contact us at RobAttack1@hotmail.com

Drop us a line so we can get back to our happy pervy selves!

 

Much Love to You all as always,

Love,

RobsFan~tasy

Monday Manip Madness…NSFW!!!

Hello Everybody *waves*

RobsFan~tasy

Well Ladies, Take a seat and strap yourselves in, it’s gonna be a hot ride today. I have stumbled on the lovely work of Kez100xx@Diviantart.com and, if you’ve never heard of her before now, I promise you will not forget the name after this post. I was Not a fan of manips when I first learned what they were because most of the ones I saw were bad…I mean REALLY BAD!!! Then someone sent me a couple of Amazing pics of Rob and I was floored. I couldn’t believe our boy Rob had such a great body (was so muscular) and that our shy boy would pose half nude!!! Then I figured it out (LOL @ ME!)  The trick to a good mani is NOT being able to tell that it IS a manip in the first place. Well Kez (AKA Kerry Delaney) has done an amazing job on these pics and I just had to share cause hey, that’s what we do here at RA.

OMG! Rob wearing package hugging leather pants just makes my panties go *poof!*

What was it about this one that spoke to me? Can’t decide if it’s like a young Brando a la On the Waterfront OR…I got it! That’s so gotta be an Irishward!!!

Carrie and Maggie will know what I mean when I say that this pic reminds me of the Lord Master!! I dunno why…maybe it’s the dark pic and the hooded figure but hell yeah, I love it!! And if the Lord Master looked like this, who could blame Alina for falling for him?

You know, I was never a fan of Tattoos before but F*CK me if they don’t look hot on Rob! Can you just imagine being the tattoo artist that would get to do the tatts on a body with this face!! *THUD* Hey I wonder if there is a fic out there where Bella is a tattoo Artist?? If not, there’s a plot bunny for ya!!

I included this one not only for the great job Kez did with it but also for our very own Rita01tx! Cause we all know how much she lurves a “WET ROB!”

This one just makes me think of all the naughty things you could do in the back seat of a car with Rob LOL. The fact that he looks like Rome Rob just makes this Pic all the more f*ckHAWT!

*GULP* umm…yeah, I uh…err…*Falls on the floor*

Hello, biceps! Hello, scruff! Hello, pouty lips and bedroom eyes *THUD!*

For our Music Lovers out there, Rob wants to show you his Chords heh heh heh. Oh my!! I knows if I came home to see that live and in person in my bed, I he could make me sing 7 ways from Sunday!!!

This pic I swear is just picked right out of my mind for a fic I am working on and I just am in love with it. I wish it were larger and had more color but DAYUM!!! Hello BABY!!!

Oh, how I wish I would have had this to promote SofA LOL *singing* “Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars…”

And now playing Devils Advocate…”Why Rob! Who cares about Spooning? I wanna Fork!” LMAO and you sure do gotta big fork there Baby *SNICKERS* Isn’t this just sinfully delicious? And we won’t even talk about the finger!!!

Now, I apologize…this one is NOT Kez’s but RED is definately Rob’s color and just the thought of that man, that body naked under red satin sheets is just too good to be ignored!!!

On a side Note: For personal RL reasons TMM will no longer be blogging with us. We will miss her a lot and hope that she stops by once in awhile to say hello. With the loss of TMM And RFM, Rob Attack needs some new Administrators. If you have blog ideas, or would like to write a weekly blog, or even if you would like to write just one, send us an E-mail at RobAttack1@hotmail.com and Rita or I will get back to you. Thanks so much!!

Monday Madness~ A Smile that thrills

Hello Everybody *waves*

RobsFan~tasy

Good Morning ladies. I must apologize for not posting last week. RL has it’s moments when it demands your full attention ya know? And, in all honesty, sometimes it’s really difficult to come up with some unique and entertaining posts. Then there are times when there is something about Rob that just keeps jumping out at you and demands your attention and it won’t let up until you share it with everyone you can. That’s where I’m at now. No matter how I try, every time I get on the internet I find a smiling Rob waiting for me and wanting my attention. *Sucks to be me huh? LOL* I kept tucking the pictures away but the new Comopolis grins really got me going and I really really noticed just how many different smiles our boy has. I mean I have always known it but for some reason it is just screaming at me to share so…here we go…

He’s always had a series of multiple different grins even as far back as the Harry Potter days.

HP GOF

This just cracks me up!

And the full on laughter that we would soon associate with his outrageous word vomit.

HP GOF

I wonder what he was laughing about?

And even then he was praticing that smile that would soon *POOF* the panties of women much older than he is. Ain’t no shame in it though cuz…well just look!!!

HP GOF

Oh no wonder so many girls fell for Cedric before they found Edward!

Which bring us to an even more lovable grin in the Twilight series…(Sorry couldn’t find my Cafeteria gif. 😦  )

Twilight Outtake

And who can ever forget this Beautiful smile?

Yes Rob, No matter what she told you, IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU!!!!

Unknown

But my FAVORITE Twilight series Smile is this one!!! No matter what I am ding when this movie is on I drop everything and stop and stare just to see this Stunning smile…Oh my! *POOF*

*SQUEE*

Still in my top 3 panty melting smiles but little did I know just how swoon worthy Robowski would prove to be…

Unknown

LOVE This SO SO MUCH! I swear his smile alone has the power to light up the whole world! But then there is his sweet, lovable smile that just makes you want to hug him…

And despite how much I’m positive he hates the phrase by now, Edward or Rob, when he smiles, the man just shines!!!

Unknown

Yeah, I'm dazzled.

And he has a mischievious grin too…

Unknown

Whut you up to Rob??

Then there is Goofy,ADORKABLE Rob grins….

IDEK what that Gif was about but it is Priceless! *Jumps in the gutter* But also among My favorites are his embarrassed giggle where he Laughs but turns his head in a shy way…So sweet!

Unknown

And this one just makes me giggle!

Unknown

Unknown
