In honor of my oldest graduating from Preschool this week and all of the other graduations going on over the next few weeks… high school fun!

 

One of the things that I never understood about the vamps in Twilight (and many other stories) was why they would want to hang out in high school with annoying teens over and over and over again. Seems like “home schooled” would have been a much better idea.

 

Same picture, different take on vamps going to school…

 

And this was just too funny to pass up:

Since I’ve been up for the last three nights with sick kids, I was able to finish this story fairly quickly. It’s about 100 chapters long, but they’re short (some are very short). Savage posted the chapters quickly, one or two a day from the sounds of it, so it’s not as “polished” as some stories but it is well done and engrossing.

For a story about non-consensual sex slavery, the majority of the story is fairly citrus-free. There are many twists and turns along the way, too. This Bella is young and forced into a bad position (so to speak), but is also strong and not at all whiny. Edward is flawed and dark, but has great potential for growth. Most of the other characters are so far out of canon that they’re hardly recognizable! This Alice is quite a bad ass, though.

Worth a read, I think. Unfortunately, it got pulled from FanFiction (due to content, I think) so it’s only available on her website.

Ok Daizy, you obviously have a great need to talk about the epilogue so I’m starting the post.

Now, I’m off to actually read it!

I added a few new stories to our Reading List… all by Savage.  She’s writing “Unexpected Circumstance” which I totally want to read but it’s wip so I’m trying to resist. Today, I accidentally started reading one of her complete stories (followed an Icy link) without realizing it’s the same author.

Anyway, I added some stories that sound interesting:

Could Be Worse, Right? Summary – I’m tired of the dating scene. I’m tired of trying to be the nice boyfriend. I am letting go of the last scruple I have. I’m going to buy a slave.

Hide and Drink Summary: Bella’s blood was just too tempting to be ignored. In this version of Twilight, Edward takes Bella on a sadistic journey with his monstrous side.

Judging Books Summary: Bella’s on the debutante track to life in the financial world, just as her Dad has always planned. A chance meeting at a stop light with a beautiful boy on a bicycle gives her a new outlook on life.

Surviving Bella Summary: Spending time on a sailboat on the sea should be the time of your life! But when the ship sinks, Captain Edward and passenger Bella end up in a life raft together.

I’m having a little fun with Edward this week. And, believe me, there’s A LOT of stuff out there that makes fun of Edward.I suppose he’s sort of an easy target, but he’s a fun target!

 

 

I found a couple of videos on Funny or Die. GESA really liked this first one.

 

And here’s one that reminded me of Daizy… can’t imagine why.

Just discovered that the “University of Edward Masen” link is dead! Apparently, the author went and got it published as a real book… Which is a good thing, I’m sure, it just always takes me by surprise when the good stories are gone. One of these days, I’m going to have to go through our links and remove the ones that are dead.

Daizy, did you read this one? Is it worth getting the book?

Anyway, that makes three of the good stories that I know are gone.

 

  • Master of the Universe (being published as “Fifty Shades of Grey“)
  • Clipped Wings and Inked Armor (not being published, afaik)
  • University of Edward Masen (being published as “Gabriel’s Inferno“)

 

Are there any others that have been pulled, that you guys know? I’m thinking we might want to start a section for fics that have gone on to bigger and better things!

This is the review I’ve been dreading……

Best Laid Plans

From FF.net summary: Set at the end of Eclipse, Bella makes a plan that could put everything she
wants in jeopardy. Will she lose everything because of her foolhardy plan? HEA
Edward/Bella, with Jacob angst. Finalist in the Indie Twific Awards!

—–

Can you imagine Twilight Bella as foolhardy? Did you love to hate her when you read Eclipse? Did you ever wonder how stupid can Bella possibly be? When Bella is deep in her self-examination in the series and other fanfic do you find yourself asking What The Fuck? A lot?

This isn’t just a little bit of Jacob angst. This is a whole lot of Bella over-thinking things and sabotaging her own happiness as well as the happiness of so many others. Sounds awful, right? It is. And then again – It’s not.

La.Tua.Cantante.83 does it so well that I couldn’t stop reading.

I know, I know…..I always keep reading even when it hurts. But this wasn’t like putting myself through the hell that is the highly acclaimed Dead Confederates. Then I just kept trying to figure out the draw and was hoping for some dramatic twist ending that made it all worth it. So with DC I didn’t enjoy the writing or the story.

Best Laid Plans has quite lovely writing that almost makes up for Bella’s inner dialog. I found myself wondering if the author went through the Twilight series and then some bad fan fic and then asked the question above – Could Bella BE any dumber? Then she decided to answer that question herself. Yes. Yes she can. And here she is with her Best Laid Plans. I like to think the author would get a kick out of my little fantasy of how BLP came to be. If not, maybe she wants to give me a punch in the neck…

I love to adore Bella and to root for her. This story may or may not be written with the intent to show Bella at her worst, but for me it certainly worked out that way. In a lot of ways it was hilarious, but that might just be me.

My family left me alone in the house for a bit so I figured I could finally write a post or two for the Tarts. I have a lot of catching up to do.

When Edward Met Bella is basically the movie When Harry Met Sally re-written with our familiar Twilight characters and it was a lot of fun for me to read. I do think one would need to already be in love with the When Harry Met Sally in order to “get” some of the scenes and references. That said, I think it would still be enjoyable without the background.

It didn’t take long to see how the author was inspired to place our beloved Twilight characters into the WHMS story. They fit in quite nicely. Edward does share some qualities with Sally and it’s fun to see him in that role. Bella is witty and bright and I didn’t want to punch her at all. It’s always nice to adore Bella.

When Edward Met Bella is a quick read of 25 short chapters. I suggest you go read it right quick. Come back and tell me what you think 🙂

I ran across some good Hermione vs Bella stuff this week. Bella ends up on the short end of things, of course, but it’s still pretty funny. And who hasn’t wanted to throat-punch Bella at some point?

 

On dealing with life...

On dealing with heartbreak...

On lessons learned...

Have either of you bought and read this yet?

I bought it on iBooks and I love reading about all of the different characters and their backstories and how they came to be.

I’m only half way through it, but it’s helped me understand a lot more!
