There is real life, then there's Real Life.


We all know that Rob and Kristen belong together. So what happens when that finally happens, just years down the road? Enter Ever After . . .


A series of one-shots, that are tied together by the moments that make up a couple's life together. Add a few 'sex-haired' babies and some Twilight friends for fun.


Rated NC-17 because you just never know when the lemon muse will show up.


A new series from  jakeward and the shrew.


*stories will not be necessarily be in chronological order. Cause that's how we roll. :)

That was so sweet - there's a big, goofy grin on my face right now. The Duke of Giggleford was priceless!

With Teeth by TalulaBlue Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 5906]
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.

this is such a compelling story -- wonderful writing! i teared up in this chapter, sheesh :)




When Bella and Edward meet the first day of High School, he is a chubby misfit with no friends in a new town, aside from his popular cousins.  He meets Bella Swan, a well-liked, if uncoordinated, local with problems of her own.  This is the story of their friendship, their loss, their love and destruction.  Can they find their way back to each other?  And can they survive the changes they have both gone through since the fateful day they met?

Behind the Lens by jakeward Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1113]


"Once upon a time, there was a girl that wanted to get swept off her feet. Little did I know my co-star would be the one to do it. Not only did he sweep me off my feet, he managed to completely carry me away."

Where one story ends, another begins. Under a watchful eye, they live . . . Behind the Lens.

Sequel to Behind the Reel.

A fictional tale of Rob & Kristen.

Holy hot toddy! Thank you for that indecently delicious lemon. I think my phone nearly melted as I read.

Ohhhhhh, poor Rob - LOL. I'll bet that's the last time he offers to give his girl a massage prior to, er, the deed. Hopefully he has better luck in the next chapter.

Also, I couldn't help but laugh at Rob's rant of the giant vamp camp hampster wheel. Hilarious!

Aw. I remember some comments about Kristen being ill during the tent shoot. But uggggh, how horrible to be sick and need to work so physically close to *anyone*. AND be wrapped up in a zillion layers, a hat, AND a wig. :(

I wonder if the green eyed monster has been appeased... or instead further fed by the tent and lip lock scenes. I generally don't like jealousy... but it's a wee bit hot in Rob.

I really LOL'd at the 'he was going to birth a cow' line. Hysterical!

Bella? Marie? by Nyomi Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1284]
Summary: Feature

ON HIATUS. [sorry guys :-(]

Bella (22) longs for love and acceptance, yet her fear of rejection keeps her guarded and single. Her craving to feel needed is fulfilled by working as a live-in nanny to Rosalie, who's a single mom to four-year old Henry.

For months, Bella has been secretly infatuated with Rosalie's ex-husband, Edward (29), but he barely acknowledges Bella during their brief encounters. That is, until one night when she bumps into him at a club.

However, he doesn't recognize her at all.

Afraid for her job, she tells him her name is Marie. He acceptes her pseudonym, and feeling safe with anonymity, Bella reveals her wild side. 

She makes the most of the night, but what happens when he tries to find the mysterous Marie?

When Mr. Cullen gets to know Bella, will he still want Marie?

How will that one incredible night shake their worlds?

Isabella Swan met the Cullens when she was a child, growing up as Alice's best friend. Not every Cullen liked Bella, though. Alice's older brother Edward took it upon himself to make Bella's trip toward adulthood a nightmare. Everything changes when Edward is sent to prison for the murder of Bella's mother, Renee.

ah, like how you've gotten them to take steps and yet you're also setting up nicely for future chapters. loving this story!

i'm pretty appalled by alice, esme, and carlisle's behavior. can't blame edward for not caring much for them at the moment.

This is such good stuff! I love your take on Emmett -- he's such an underrated character in my opinion. And Edward and Bella are pretty sad little people right now -- tough to see them a bit broken down. Great story!

i had a serious 'awww' moment reading this chapter. what a lovely reunion! so impressed w/ edward taking the plunge and bella meeting him half way.

nice to see the cullens slowly putting themselves back together, especially carlisle and esme.

love where you're taking this story; looking forward to seeing where bella and edward go next!

this was a great chapter - so exciting to see bella and edward really trying to meet each other half-way. those crazy kids. and just when i think edward can't be any greater he is... aw :)

also, you got me good w/ emmet's opening "Bella's truck is at Edward's," -- i completely LOL'd at rosalie's reaction.

oh my goodness, that was so sweet, from start to finish - loved it! glad everyone's rebuilding lives and relationships, as well. yay!


When Bella and Edward hook up at a party their lives quickly become complicated, causing a rift in their close knit circle of friends. Despite the fallout, they can’t stay away from each other. Neither of them are able to admit the depths of their feelings for the other and when Edward has to leave for Italy and Bella realizes she’s attracted to her friend Claire, their already shaky relationship is in danger of falling apart.

This is ultimately a Bella/Edward story but there are non-canon pairs initially and later in the story there is a Bella/Claire slash pairing for a portion of the story. If this is something you aren't comfortable with, please disregard this story. Rated for language/underage drinking/lemons.

the epilogues were wonderful! i really enjoyed this one in particular and seeing how bella and edward matured together over the years. i was a little surprised that they decided not to have chldren (probably because so many B/E HEAs involve kids) but that direction really worked with their characters. and i have to admit that the idea of a hot looking 60+ edward wowing the girls at the supermarket put a huge smile on my face - love him!

Author's Response:

I am so glad you enjoyed them!

I knew them not having children would be a bit of a controversial issue, but I truly felt it was the right choice for the characters.  I am glad you thought so too. 

I have so many adorable, charming old men flirt with me at work (in a non-creepy way) and I could just picture Edward being the exact same way.  I am really, really going to miss this Edward. 

Thank you so much for your review. I really enjoy hearing your feedback.

oh, man... bella makes me want to bang my head against the wall. LOL. but i'm really enjoying this story, reading on!

Author's Response:

(laughs) sometimes she makes me want to bang my head against the wall when I write her.  The good news is that her head will be coming out of her ass in the near future.  She's finally going to get her shit together, I promise!

Thanks for the review!

Oh... sigh. I totally get that Bella needs to figure out what's going on with Claire. In fact, I think her point about having such limited sexual experience is a really good one.

But... of course... I feel terrible for Edward. LOL.

I know it will be fine in the end (you're the author, I trust you) but, well, it's Edward! And he seems to really be trying to both give Bella space as well as declare himself! Stupid, perfect hot boyfriends.

All in all, love this storyline and enjoying reading very much. Now I just have to hold out until the next update....... eep!

Author's Response:

It's so hard, isn't it?  Even if it makes sense, you hate to see Edward get hurt. 

He is trying very very hard to be okay with all of it, but it's not easy.

I am glad you're enjoying it so much!  Thanks for the reviews!

Date: May 17, 2011 Title: Chapter 47: Chapter 47 - Winter in My Heart

argh, i KNEW edward was going to bug out! i don't really blame himeither, and he is right about bella needing to sort out her feelings and learn to deal with things on her own. was he unfair? no, i don't think so. he was a bit harsh, but bella served it back -- they'll figure out how to communicate better in the end. good chapter, very intense!

Author's Response:

He tried really hard...but he couldn't just move past it, which I think is very realistic.  And ultimately it will be good for their relationship in the long run. 

He was harsh, and she definitely threw it back at him. but they have actually made progress in communicating already, and will get better as they go.

Thanks for the review!

Date: May 19, 2011 Title: Chapter 48: Chapter 48 - Llorando (Crying)

aw, the poor things. so sad bella sat outside of the house... and edward wasn't even there. clearly, tho, bella's learning a lot about herself and how her mother's leaving continues to affect her; that really is positive and will help ensure that her relationships are healthy.
they're imperfect and make mistakes -- and aren't we all -- but those crazy kids will figure their way. very realistic reactions from all, well done!

Author's Response:

Yeah, it was a tough scene to write.  She is learning a lot and every realization she has will get her one step closer to making things work with Edward. 

I am so glad you found it realistic, that's always been my biggest goal for this story.  Thanks for the review!

Date: May 25, 2011 Title: Chapter 50: Chapter 50 - Amado Mio

ah, it's nice that they're talking and working it out! they have a ways to go, but definitely seem like they're on the right path. they'll figure out how to communicate if they keep at it. i laughed at the "we're a little overly dramatic" :)

Author's Response:

Yeah, they definitely don't think that they have it all solved yet, and I think that's the biggest thing in their favor.  I'm glad you enjoyed it! 

And I'm glad you liked the "overly dramatic line".  :)

Thanks for the review!
