It’s been a while since I read a fan fic that had me this excited.

In Beyond Time we meet up with Bella after Edward has left her. She’s unhappy, but not lying on the forrest floor or holed up in her room moping.  She knows Edward still loves her and doesn’t know why he left. She’s angry and, as Jacob puts it, she’s the new and improved badass Bella.

Somehow fate sends Bella to 1918 Chicago and shit gets real. Or does it? I have no idea.

I’m not quite finished reading Beyond Time. I have fewer than 100 pages left and I still have no idea where we’re going. Actually, I have too many ideas of where it could go and that’s what makes this story brilliant. I hope you’ll love this story, too!

I’m reading Love Amongst the Ruins. It’s the most painful fic I’ve read since Dead Confederates. It’s so bad that I’m afraid I was terribly unforgiving of Dead Confederates. Maybe I should give it another chance. I’m thinking I might finish LAtR, read something brainy and important, and then re-read Dead Confederates with a fresh perspective. Maybe I’ll even read the Jane Auel series starting with the second book. DragonWife know how significant it is that I’d even consider picking up Jane Auel.

So, why is Love Amongst the Ruins so bad? At first it seems like it’ll be a pretty standard broken Edward and broken Bella find each other story. Sadly, this Edward is extra pitiful. Ya know how Twi-haters complain that movie Edward is all broody and self hating to the point of nausea? Yeah, this Edward is like that. I don’t even feel bad for him. I’m halfway through (376 pages so far) and he hasn’t made a dent in my heart. Instead of the beautiful man described I envision Christian Slater from Heathers – forced darkness, hunched over not from crippling injury but with hate and extreme selfishness. This story made me bored of Edward. I hate not adoring Edward. It’s so fucked up.

Bella is practically normal in comparison. There’s the whole love at first sight thing which I actually get. She gets to have a dream job of cataloguing old books into a library collection. Yep, she researches and plays with old rare books all day. There’s a fascinating mystery involved that gets mentioned in the first couple chapters. The next time it was mentioned in any meaningful way is 24 chapters later. Twenty four chapters!

I’m still reading this story only because I want to know the deal with MSM’s journal, music and collection of rare books. I don’t care if Edward ever says “the words’ to Bella. I don’t care if he ever finds a way to deal with his back. I don’t care if Bella ever learns what a man whore he was once upon a time. I don’t care if Esme finds out all the secrets and fires everyone. Just get to the fucking point!

A while back I read a story that had quite an effect (not affect) on me. In Your World by solostintwilight is the story of a Bella who escapes an abusive relationship. She finds a beautiful new life with the Amish where she learns about family, faith and community. She also discovers her self and love. Real love.

After I read it I went to grab the link and share it only to find the story had been pulled. Now I’m pleased to share the news that it’s been published and is set to release in June. I’m so excited!

 

Here’s the author’s page for Healing Faith:

Over there-> in the Reading List is a new link to the story Forget Me Not. Just finished this and loved it to pieces! I don’t think I’ve ever loved Charlie more, Bella is freakin’ awesome and, of course, Edward has his moments.

A man is found beaten and unconscious down by the river. When he awakens he remembers nothing but his name, Edward. Guess who helps him out? There’s an odd little mystery and lots of love. The very last lines of the very last future-take Kill Me with sweetness.

It’s a short story of only 210 pages. SydneyAlice does a wonderful job of telling the beautiful story without dragging it out unnecessarily. That is greatly appreciated by this constantly tired and falling asleep pregnant fan fic reader 🙂

With that in mind, this little disclaimer: I thought twice about posting a rec because I’m ditsy and a little dumb right now. I’d hate to recommend something that isn’t actually as great as it seems to the crazy pregnant lady. Then I realized that I could barely restart Breaking Dawn and didn’t follow through. I just read a paragraph and drifted to sleep. Same thing with Twilight. Both books I love. I can only read one article from Mother Earth News in a sitting. Forget Me Not may have taken a few nights rather than a few hours for me to read through, but it kept my attention, kept me awake and kept me wanting more. Sure hope you get as much of a kick out of it as I did!

 

PS – Just ran a spell check for obvious reasons and I spelled  unconscious correctly the first time! Yea me, lol

I’ve read a lot of fan fic. Much of it has tough subject matter. Many of my favorites have downright disturbing subject matter. For some reason this one, Hide and Drink, really got to me. That reason has a name and address. It boils down to addiction and how it affects everyone involved.

Hide and Drink is another very well written story from savage. It’s a pretty simple idea – What if Edward didn’t stop himself that first day? What happens when the vamp simply uses and drinks from the singer? It’s an interesting idea that makes for a very engaging story.

Edward kidnaps Bella and takes her on a whirlwind adventure against her will. Edward is damaged, dangerous and still lovable. Bella is beautiful, insightful and mildly irritating about it. Everyone is with their canon partners and mostly in character. Aro has a very quick but memorable appearance. I think that little meeting is exactly how it would have gone if Edward took this other path.

Happily Ever After? That depends on your point of view. This is one of those stories I really want you all to read and then come back and discuss. There’s some heavy shit in this story. Tell me – Am I reading too much into it? Is it really deep, meaningful and eye-opening in the way we hear about Oprah Book Club books?

There is a lot more to Eric Yorkie than just being the kid who says “It’s La Push, baby, La Push”. Remember he’s with the high school newspaper. He’s figured out the Cullen secret and is determined to expose them. But, how does he gain the evidence? And how will the Cullens respond when they learn Eric’s plan?

This is a quick, fun story that takes place during Twilight. It fits right in with Twilight events (Well done with a side of canon!) and I’m sure that when I reread Twilight I’ll have this story in my mind, running along side and filling in places I never before considered empty. Yep, it’s that good!

Suddenly Eric is a very important character. duskwatcher2153 writes an Eric Yorkie who has won a little piece of my heart.

Added a link to Only Human and I highly recommend that you read it 🙂

It’s Bella’s birthday and she makes a wish that send her back in time. The time is mere months before the deadly Spanish Flu hits Chicago. What happens when she meets up with human Edward?

This is  a quick read of 26 short chapters that move the story along at a nice pace. There are some tough times, of course, but it’s definitely an enjoyable story to read.

The author has a companion piece that is still a work in progress. Tried to add that link as well but the site was apparently acting up. Hopefully I can add it soon. Also hope it’ll be finished soon!

Dragonwife got me pocket Edward for Christmas!

He keeps me company while my Rob file loads. It takes a while ; )

With Pocket Edward’s help I finally found one of my favorite pics…

And, of course, he helps me check the tweets. They are mostly about him after all 😉

I love my Pocket Edward. Thank youy Dragonwife and GESA for feeding this fangirl!
