Thanks to my wonderful brother in law, Carl, I've become quite obsessed with fan fiction!

I'm a married, *gulp* 28yr old mom of 3 from Indiana. I loves me some fanfic, RPATZ, and think the rob/kristen romance thing is just silly. Sue me. lol

I'm currently writing the  AU- AH story Life As I Know It. Go check it out! I also have an idea for a vamp/copward story....not posting it yet though. Keep me on alert for it though!

(if you were reading My Best Friend's Wedding, I pulled it. I couldn't figure out where I wanted to go with it. If I ever finish it, I'll repost it.)

Take a peek at my faves, they are AMAZING stories! I'm particulary in love with Slutty Edward and Bella in Beautiful, Dirty, Rich! I don't normally like stories where they are so unlike themselves, but my GOD the lemony goodness is just too much! It's Cruel Intentions with a Twlight twist! GO.READ.NOW.

Real Women Have Curves, Page Turner, and Bad Reputation, Tatoos Like Mile Markers are also AMAZING stories!

Paradox by spacey25 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 471]


Awesome banner created by Amber.

Bella is a newborn vampire that is unlike others of her kind. Changed by James, a centuries old vegetarian vampire who has an unhealthy obsession with making Bella his mate, she flees her life in small town Forks and heads to Chicago. Intent on using her new abilities to help people, she and her best friend Rosalie spend their nights walking the streets of Chicago, searching for people to save, find the missing, and bring criminals to justice. In a dark alley, she runs into Edward Cullen, a handsome, cocky, homicide detective who immediately is captivated by the supernatural beauty.

The two eventually come together to bring down a serial killer who is not human and Bella finds herself falling for the cop and his entire family, revealing her secret and putting them all in jeopardy. When tragedy strikes, Bella is faced with the difficult decision to bring others into her world or leave them to die, including the man she loves.

Disrepair by chy3 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 187]

She had the perfect life. Perfect Job. Perfect house. Perfect husband and a baby on the way. She had it all. That is, until one singular moment took it all away...

A story about a love lost and the rocky journey to a new one through trying twists and turns of depression and the lows that go along with it. The path to love was never easy. 

[This is a Bella story. Eventual B/E. Rated M for dark themes and swearing. OOC. If you're not a fan of dark themes, including depression, thoughts of suicide, anything often accompanies depression, graphic descriptions, etc., then this story is not for you. There will be very, very little fluff. Move on if that is your thing.]

Bella Swan attends group therapy to placate her worried father, remaining mute about the events that led to her suicide attempt.  Mesmerized by the sullen, silent stranger who enters five minutes late each session, she is shocked into action the day he finally speaks up, her pierced tongue forming words aloud for once...

Edward Cullen obliges his father and sees his colleague, Dr. Jones, for individual and group therapy after his near-demise - the physical one, that is.  For Edward knows that inside, he's already dead, destroyed by the painful memories he commemorates with tattoos like mile markers...

Two damaged souls who speak the same language come together by chance.  But can the damaged save each other in the wake of revelations to come?

This story's first chapter began as a finalist for the Tattward/Inkella one-shot contest, and is rated NC-17 for language, lemons and disturbing themes/imagery including suicide attempts, substance abuse, self-harm and scenes of violence.  It deals heavily with issues of mental illness and healing; please read with care.

Canon pairings, AU-AH, somewhat OOC.

Pen Pals by wmr1601 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 769]
Summary: Feature


Bella and Edward have been pen pals (the traditional kind, pen and paper stuff) for over a decade, but they never met for reasons even they didn’t know. After fourteen years of “courting through the postal service” and not realizing it, Bella gets engaged to Emmett, a fellow lawyer at the prestigious firm of Ateara, Call, and Uley. They move fast, and a wedding is set for a mere four months after they get engaged. Bella invites Edward to the wedding, wanting to finally meet her longtime friend, and when things go sour the night of the rehearsal dinner, Bella, in her shock, ends up in Edward’s arms. And this is all just the tip of the iceberg for these two…

Rated NC-17 for mature sexual content. Little to no bad language.

Oh," Jacob hesitates. "I just figured the way he acted around you the other night and how you were going to his party that maybe you guys were..." He trails off.

"Well, no." I clarify. "We are only biology partners."

"OH! I get," he nearly shouts. "Like benefriends."

"WHAT?!" I yell, "NO!" I pull the phone away from my ear and press the TALK button to end the call.

Awesome banner made by my Beta xrxdanixrx...she is a genius and I can't stop staring at it...


“What are you thinking?” Edward asked me.

“I’m thinking about how big of a failure I am,” I answered truthfully.

We were still holding each other in his classroom and I realized quickly how dangerous that was...that was where Edward and I went wrong. The need we both felt to touch each other was costing us, and if I didn’t put a stop to it, well, I knew things were going to get worse way before they got better.

Edward narrowed his eyes at me disapprovingly. “You're not a failure, Bella.”

The furrow in his brow only increased as I put some distance between us. He reached out to bring me back in, but I shook my head stubbornly.

“I’m not running,” I assured him, “but we need to stop being so open. While I’m here, we need to at least pretend I’m your student.”

Edward ran his hands through his hair roughly and I envied him at that moment.  Only a minute had passed and I was already losing my resolve.

“She’s right, you know.”  

My body tensed to the voice that suddenly was in the room with us. It was unfamiliar and I couldn’t place it for the life of me, but this unknown voice was agreeing with me--which meant, this unknown person heard everything I said…

Oh shit, oh shit…

Bella Swan is a 28 year old woman who is a narcotics detective for the Seattle Police Department. Bella is assigned to go undercover as a high school student to bring down a massive drug ring fronted by the elusive Drug Lord Aro Volturi. Bella soon finds herself falling for her English teacher Edward Masen...



Edward Masen is instantly attracted to this new student, but can't pursue a relationship with a young girl.

 Will these two keep things in perspective or will their ethics be damned?
