Hi,


There is more of this story on fanfiction.net, if you'e interested in finding it. As for finishing it....


My life was turned upside down in December 2010, when my 3 year old son's Leukaemia relapsed. 2011 was hellish, and we lost our beloved son on 7th September 2011 aged only 4 years and 2 months.


Inbetween times, my urge to write has been utterly absent. It still is, and frankly, life moves on.


I may one day return to finish Waking up, I have the entire final 6-7 chapters planned, but I don't know if or when.


Until then, I hope you enjoy what is here. I have no plans to pull it, as I see no reason to, so read, enjoy, until your world moves past Twilight too.


So, for now, Thank you, and good night.


Ria xx

Summary: Feature

 

*Takes place during New Moon in an alternate universe.

On March 16, 2006,  the World changed, and everything and anything that the Cullens ever cared about was lost. They had to find their own way in this New World. Edward never wished to exist in a world where Bella didn't.  Unfortunately, his family desperately needed him, so he'd stay to help them.   And by doing so, he hoped to redeem himself for his failure to save the one creature he couldn't protect. 

With rumours in the South of humans feeding off the living and stealing people from their beds, the Cullens have a responsibility to protect the ones they can from those monsters in the night.  This was Edward's last chance to fight for his soul and his salvation.  He would finally be ready to face Judgement day and be deemed worthy enough to be with Bella once again.  Or would something or someone change the path he was destined to go down?  Faith, hope and love are powerful things, and Edward is about to find out just how powerful they are.

 

Yes... this is the story that is set during a post-apocalyptic nuclear war. Just try the Prologue to get a feel for it before passing judgment. You might be surprised. Warning: There is violence and disturbing images the further the story goes along.

Summary: Feature

A story about love, about death, about keeping secrets, and dealing with the consequences.  Bella and Edward meet at a hospital when she is diagnosed with a life threatening disease and he is recovering from knee surgery.  She confides her fears to him; he changes his life because of her.  This is a story about their journey through the confusion, awkwardness, pain, and beauty of first love.

Photobucket

Excerpt from Chapter 2:
“What are you most afraid of?”  Edward asks one last question.

“I'm not afraid of dying,” I answer truthfully.

“You're not afraid of dying?” he repeats, incredulous.

“No.  There's so much more.  I'm afraid of losing my hair but that's not my biggest fear.  I'm afraid of leaving my mom and dad all alone.  I'm afraid that if I survive, I'll never have children of my own.”  I yawn again.  Edward is quiet and I think for a moment that he's fallen asleep.  “Edward,” I whisper, in case he is asleep, “What are you most afraid of?”

“I'm afraid I'm falling for you,” he whispers back so softly that I'm unsure if I've heard him correctly.

Loner by Nilla Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 9905]
Summary:

Edward Cullen was a loner, an outcast. He clearly hated everybody, including himself. He was not a nice person. So, why was I so drawn to him? And why did I get the crazy feeling he felt the same way?

WARNING: This story will deal with the aftermath of child abuse and rape. If that bothers you too much, I strongly recommend that you don’t read.

Summary:

Bella Swan, a young registered pharmacist from New Jersey, takes a job in the Forks, WA Regional Hospital, determined to start her life over.  She meets the handsome, brooding Edward Cullen, who also works in the hospital's pharmacy...but on the night shift, of course.

Will Edward be able to control his agonizing thirst for Bella's blood? How will the emotionally wounded Bella react to her increasing attraction to him? Can Jacob be effective as a minor, if consequential, character? And most important, can Serendipitous refrain from the gratuitous use of hokey questions to attract readers?

 

    Huge thanks to the talented and generous Anne Cullen for the banner!

 

 Canon pairings; the Cullens are still vampires.  Edward's and Bella's ages are advanced to their early-mid 20s, to give them more adult sensibilities.  Other than that, the story parallels "Twilight," with some new adventures in line with the characters' ages and situations.  The chapters alternate between Edward's and Bella's POV. While it's not a *funny* version of "Twilight," there are definite sparks of humor in it.

Unfortunately for him, this does nothing to dissuade his heroin-like craving, especially when there are veritable goldmines of Bella’s sweet blood, just sitting there in her trash! Can Edward really go through with his plot? Won’t Bella notice her missing garbage? How will the Cullens escape detection now?

“There was no other blood like this.  Once she was gone, it would no longer be within my grasp.  But if I stopped now, she would heal.  Her body would make more.  The blood would replenish.  I could drink again.  The promise of more – it was the only incentive that could have caused me to stop.”

With Teeth by TalulaBlue Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 5904]
Summary: Feature

Edward is a 27-year-old alcoholic/addict struggling with his recovery. Bella is a 23-year-old who's moved back home after college. This fic chronicles how they meet, fall in love, and struggle with the complexities of their relationship. Not nearly as maudlin as it sounds (I hope).

Rated NC-17 for graphic (and sometimes non-romantic) sex, drug and alcohol use and abuse, profane language, and brief (very brief) suicidal ideation (although NO suicide attempts). No sexual assault, no cutting.

Summary:

The heat wave lingers. Sweet, savory and slick.  Jasper, Rose and I wade through the humid days, content in our relative isolation. We spend June through August at our family lake property, and this summer is like any other.

Until it's not.

An unexpected guest, new neighbors and a few stiff drinks collide to make the year we turn 19 sometimes better, often worse, but infinitely more interesting.

Edward’s vigilante days have come a little later in his existence. He lives in solitude, the rest of his family dwelling in Alaska and hunts the truly evil across the US.

Bella knows nothing of the vampire world, and although she was never involved in an icy car accident, she is still a magnet for trouble.

If he had met her alone in a dark alley, say, after saving her from creepy guys in Port Angeles, would it have been different?
