I swore, up and down, for a very long time that I would not give in to the mania that Twilight seemed to be...scratch that...IS. But then, I do that with all the fads, perhaps to see if they are more than fads. I steadfastly refused to read the books or see the first two movies. After all, I'm no longer a teenager and I never really did take a liking to damsels in distress, vampires and/or werewolves.

But then, one fateful day this past spring, my sister left a copy of Twilight that she had borrowed from a friend lying around. Being the book lover that I am, I picked it up, wondering what all the fuss was about.

All the fuss led me to devour all four books twice in a month's time. I bought a DVD of Twilight and watched it three times in one weekend (am I the only one thrilled the movie put Jasper in the same grade as Edward and Alice?). And I counted down the days to the release of Eclipse.

Someone that I talked to somewhere else had a great phrase about herself as a Twilight fan and I think it fits me, too.

I'm obsessed in a decent way.

Yeah, that's it.

Anyway, I consider myself to be TEAM JASPER. My favorite book is ECLIPSE. My favorite movie is ECLIPSE. Both of those probably have something to do with JASPER.

Let me know if you need a beta, I'm happy to help on almost any story. My only condition is that it cannot use direct quotes from the books. Anything else, I'm good with.

I have also given in to the fad that is Twitter and you can follow me if you want. I'm @idealskeptic

I also happen to have no talent whatsoever when it comes to banners but I have some absolutely amazing banners for my stories. Why? Because Twi-fandom banner makers are super nice and really, really good. Here's a link to all the banners for my stories... My Banners

This is my AWESOME BANNER from FrozenSoldier!!! Thanks FS!!!!!

New Banner!!!

Pre-Twilight, a twist in fate allows Alice to remember her childhood.
She remembers when the visions started, her family, and a dark moment of her past that makes meeting Jasper more eventful. Jasper's violent past and restless future beg her to tread lightly around this stranger. Will she be able to dig deep enough to find the gentle soul in there somewhere? Or will she scare herself away from the only one who can help her heal? Will they learn to trust one another and the family in her visions, or will things once again spiral out of control?


**Warning- contains allusion to childhood sexual abuse, please don't read if you are sensitive to that topic.

Abandoned by his parents, seven year old Edward is neglected and abused in his foster home and his only close friend, Bella, lives in Arizona for ten months out of the year.  It is only when the Cullens unexpectedly enter his life that he learns what it means to be loved and his wounded soul starts to heal.

When tragedy brings Bella to Forks for good, she comes hiding a secret too big to share, even with him.  Can these two tortured souls find happiness in a mad world of vampires and werewolves or are they already doomed by their own past?

WARNING: Strong language, underage drug and alcohol abuse, thoughts of suicide and suicide attempts, mental illness and child abuse.  Future lemons. Major angst.

Love Phase by LaRosada Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 163]


Leah Clearwater has lost the love of her life and her humanity due to the existence of vampires, werewolves and the magic of imprinting. She doesn't mean to be jealous of her friends, family and immortal "acquaintances", but when everyone else is paired off she can't help feeling bitter. When she finally imprints it should be a blessing, a chance for her to finally start over and live a happy life.


But apparently Edward and Bella aren't the only star-crossed lovers in Forks...


He stared at me then. Half confused, half furious. But not as furious as I was, as I stared back into his beautiful, blazing, blood red eyes.

Eventide is a children's story set just after the events of Breaking Dawn.  Nessie wants to explore her humanity a bit by attending school like other children.  Bella thinks this is a good idea; Edward doesn't agree.  They come to a compromise to allow Nessie to attend school for the duration of one school year.  Nessie discovers that school isn't all it is cracked up to be and finds herself being alienated from the other children.  She ends up befriending a child with autism, and their unlikely friendship is healing for both of them.

How does Carlisle control a coven full of strong willed males?  A new take on coven dynamics.  It's possible.   Originally meant to be a oneshot, it has turned into a series of oneshots.  I will add more if I can come up with creative ideas including how dominant/submissive behaviors affect Edward and Bella. 

These oneshots are primarily SLASH, but will include hetro couplings. 

A reviewer described this as a National Geographic look at vampire covens.  That's about right.  

All canon couples. ;o)

WARNING: contains mature themes, sexual domination, violence and graphic sexual acts.  Please don't read if this offends you.

Have you ever considered what Breaking Dawn would have looked like if there had been a battle instead of a peaceful confrontation?  What if the Cullens had come to the field prepared?  But let's back up and consider what would have triggered such a preparation.  Surely when Eleazar proclaimed Bella a shield, Alice would have seen this... and if she had, wouldn't it have triggered another vision or two?  Maybe resulting in two very different outcomes...?  The Cullens have a lot of talent at their disposal, but there isn't a finer, more intelligent military leader than their own Jasper Whitlock.  Proven in battle before, and possessing a reputation for being the absolute best, please join me in this thrilling, yet very plausible multi-chapter "what if" ride.

Most of the POVs are Jasper, Garrett and Kate, but as the tale progresses there are other POVs to include Maria, Edward, Bella, Rose, Alice, and Carlisle!

The tale is canon, using some of the very same dialogue Stephanie provided, but the alternate universe comes in ONLY when the tale veers off into a battle.

"Wow. What a complete pleasure this was to read.  You must have done some pretty intensive research to give this story the depth/scope that I've so enjoyed. And the way it interwove with the book (to the point where I had no idea where one would leave off and the other would start)...well, that had to be a real bitch to make sure everything gelled together. But you freaking pulled it off. What a joy it is to find something of such quality on a FREE website. I swear sometimes I feel like I won the lottery the day I found Twilighted!" Roonie

"That was AMAZING! U really need 2 write a book! I loved it and couldn't stop reading it for about 4 hours until the very end! That was cool how you skipped years and yet still made it sound so clear and nonconfusing and I could feel the emotion and see the "images" of every  character, separately yet together at the same time! (If you catch my meaning ;p) I hope you keep writing, whether it's on fanfiction or as an author for real stories, because your writing style is amazing!" AluraWolffang

"I absolutely loved this story! You are a very talented writer and I am very much looking forward to reading other stories you have written."  willyjoe

"This was much closer to the way the end of Breaking Dawn should have happened. I read it in two sittings, because I had to sleep, after all, and I loved it... now I'm off to see if you've written anything else yet!"  idealskeptic

"I liked your ending better than SM's.  They way she left the threat of the Volturi over the Cullens head, knowing she had no intention of ever following up on the story, never sat right with me.  In SM's world, the Volturi would have left that day and started planning how to defeat the Cullen's.  Aro would not take his humiliation in front of so many, lightly.  I thought your ending was well thought out and gave attention to so many interesting characters that we only got a glimpse of in the original books."  kycee

"I'm so sorry to hear you lost readers after the first chapter. I think your story is wonderfully written, stays in canon, and I'm so glad I found it. Thank you for sharing it!"  Kathryn (mommakat)

"This was an amazingly original take on Cannon leading to AU. So very interesting and exciting.  I like the idea of all the hidden missions and the way Jasper really worked his magic. I, too, felt he wasn't utilized enough in BD by SM. I knew Alice would NEVER leave her family without reason and this story really satisfied my curiosity as to their plan.  I really enjoyed all the points of view and could easily see these events taking place.  Great job!"  lightspell

"A fic that makes you wish the book had ended that way (in spite of the fact that you freaking loved the book)?  Yeah, that's pretty damn amazing.  So thank you for pouring yourself into this for us. Thank you for putting yourself out there and getting absolutely nothing in return except for a few meager words of praise. You. Are. Awesome."  Roonie

"I have only recently joined and started reading the stories here. There are so many excellent stories, but I have to say this is the first one to inspire me to write a review and here it is: Bravo! Brilliant!" Elbereth49

After decades of searching, Alice has finally found the Cullens. She immediately fits in, but Jasper has a harder time adapting. This is the story of how Jasper came to regard the Cullens as family. Canon. Mostly told from Jasper's POV.

Follow me on Twitter for updates and previews: casket4myfanfic.

When Alice's visions reveal the Volturi's horrfying plans to descend upon the Cullen family, armed with Irina's testimony of an immortal child sighted in their care, she enlists Jasper's aid in seeking out the one hope that may spare all of their lives... if they return alive.

This story serves to fill in Alice and Jasper's adventures away from the Cullen family during Breaking Dawn, and is second in an intended series based strongly in existing canon. That said, it is highly recommended that the first story in the series, Down The Rabbit Hole, be read, as parts of the created canon/backstory for Alice Cullen will become relevant down the road in this story as well. As with DTRH, this story draws on allusions to Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass, And What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll.

Rated NC-17 for violence, language and a dash of lemons. This story will occassionally contain dialogue and text from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer for clarity and continuity; no infringement is intended and all chapters will be noted accordingly in that instance.

There have been many stories about Alice and Jasper's journey to the Cullens from 1948 to 1950, but not one quite like this one. This is Jasper's dark journey about learning to trust and love and that war is not how vampires have to live life. Told in both Alice and Jasper's POV's. Kept as cannon as possible.
