I have no idea where you are going with this but I'm along for the ride. When she's awoken on her 18th this is not the direction I was expecting the story to go. Interesting . . .

Wondered where my main man was after Carlisle has said he had 3 sons. And gone for 14 year - wow - thats gonna require some explaining. Can't wait to see where this goes.

 
Summary: Feature

It was said of early vampire books and movies that vampirism was simply a poorly disguised substitute for sex. Back in the day, the entire genre was considered extremely risque'. With that in mind, this is a parody of Midnight Sun replacing all the vampirism with sexuality - no blood lust - just extreme human lust. AH/AU and consequently, OOC.  Thank you to Debussy_This for the fabulous (and hysterical) banner!!!

I love, love, love the monster's voice in this story. Brilliant. You do such a wonderful job with the idea of vampirism as a metaphor for sexuality. This chapter really moves beyond sex though into a much more plot based story. I truly enjoy where this is going (OK not the horror that is James, but the overall where the story is taking us).

And honestly there are far, far worse things in this world than a very horny Edward who wants you ;)

Well you know we all love the chain smoking, ax wielding monster, but it was very sweet as he snuck out of the room there at the end. This story is from such a different perspective but it's just fabulous.

 
Summary:

Bella Swan meets a beautiful stranger, lawyer Edward Masen on a holiday in Rome. The chemistry is palpable, the sex passionate - and a physical relationship grows into something more. The days fly in a whirlwind of clothes, sand, sex and wine. After a painful realisation that the fantasy has come to an end, Bella returns apprehensively to Seattle, heartbroken at the loss of her love. 


But, little does she know that the 'beautiful stranger' isn't such a stranger, after all.

 

A surprise awaits Bella Swan in Seattle.

 

 

Rated for explicitly detailed sex scenes and language.

 

 

Beautifully accurate banner by the beautifully talented MrsC. Thank you!

I have missed this story. Think she's a fucking idiot. No two ways about it. Coward too. Can't quite figure out how someone who sneaks out in the dawn, not telling their lover they are leaving, not exchanging information, can deserve someone like him. The only way she should get him is because without her he'll be unhappy otherwise, she's incredibly immature or her age. People are married, having children, back from war by this age and she's...acting like a teenager.If the situation were reversed and the man snuck off, he'd be considered a cad at best.

I'm happy for Alice, though. Jasper sounds lovely. My hope would be that Edward has gotten over the confusion and heart-ache she caused him, but I doubt that's the case. Can't wait to see what happens.

 
Summary:

Bella is a witness in peril. Emmett Cullen is the deputy assigned to protect her. When the witness protection program proves unsafe, Emmett has Bella pose as his brother Edward's fiancée. ExB. AU/AH.

Loving this story. Keep it coming. Let them both realize that they are soulmates quickly, don't - please don't - let it drag on and on painfully like some stories do. Let them have some happiness. Edward is sweetness . . .

Thank you very much.  I don't think I'm planning on letting it drag on, but everyone has different definitions for what drags on.

Date: March 05, 2009 Title: Chapter 1: Visions and Interruptions

I love the idea of this story (I read the original version over on FF but saw that you were redoing and found it here). I do have two problems with the plot though. First that in trying to give her as normal a life as possible, he would consider changing her so that she could never have children the more normal experience. Second, although it isn't here yet, that there is so much consideration put into the deadline. Like if she got pregnant two weeks later, he's change her and end the baby or he'd never, ever change her. Because she just has to be pregnant in this tiny window or it'll never happen. For plot to put pressure on them, I get it but it's difficult for me to accept. Obviously I like the story enough to reread and see what you've changed I just have problems with that part.

 
Farewell by starcrossdlover Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 932]
Summary:

Photobucket

 

It's Bella's 18th birthday, and what does she want more than immortality? Her darling Edward's loving company—minus the clothing. To her surprise, Edward caves and when Bella gets some, she gets WAY more than she bargained for. Cue Edward's standard self-sacrificing departure, a snarky, homicidal Victoria with some powerful connections, and a new Bella who grows a belly and a backbone and goes on her own little hunting trip in Denali to find answers.

Farewell is a twisted tale where everything is not always as it seems. There is an underlying current of betrayal that may knock your socks off on one or two occasions. A FRIENDLY WARNING: This story is not full of fluffy bunnies and rainbows and unicorns. It has the tendency to be very dark, in both drama and humor, on some occasions. If you choose to read, well, welcome to the dark side lovelies...

Special thanks to randigiles for helping me straighten out my synopsis. You rock, babe!

Edward, you idiot. You'd think he'd have learned afer leaving her once that he'd never do it again but any chance to sacrifice himself can't be missed. Poor Byronic hero. Of course he does't want anything to happen to the entire family and thinks he's protecting Bella and his daughter but he never seems to truly grasp the depth of pain she'll feel if he's gone.

I'm glad Alice spoke up. It needed to be said. Even if he didn't agree, he had to hear it. And it's good that Carlisle put his foot down - he does it so rarely.

I'm worried about your AN. A shocking ending and OMG. Doesn't sound good. I don't want to see Rosalie, Carlisle or Edward die. Or see anyone in the family hurt, the baby hunted down, death, choas, misery, higher taxes, you know - bad stuff. If anyone has to go, take out Rose. She's never been truly happy being a vampire and she'll be miserable without Emmett - both because vampires seem to go crazy without their mates and because he really was what grounded her personally and made being a vampire ok. So if someone has so go, I say Rose; but before you take her out, make sure the understand Volturi give her enough time to explain to angsty Edward that he should feel guilty, she'll be happier this way, there will be rainbows and kitties and happiness. Or maybe not.



Author's Response:

Yes, yes, Edward is an idiot. But he’s an adorable idiot with the best of intentions. Now, about the AN and your worries…I said shocking and I said OMG, but FEAR NOT because shocking and OMG does not necessarily indicate the bad stuff that you have listed. It can be a good kind of shocking, or an interesting kind of shocking. But be warned—it will be kind of a cliffy. Oh who am I kidding…it’s probably gonna be a doozy. Here’s hoping you like it! J Thanks for the review!

 
Summary:

The girls meet their dream guys and it seems like things might just be perfect. But when James, an old friend of Edward’s, comes into town and fixates on Bella, things get complicated. And dangerous. The usual pairings, all human.

I like this Edward. Obviously has a huge past (but so did our human draining vamp who later regretted it) but I like bad ass Edward. This one has so many betrayals and double, triple crosses to figure out I'm just along for the ride. No idea who is ultimately behind all of it. I'm just putting every one in either the good guys column or the bad guys column and rooting for Edward and Bella.

I'm usually much more into forehead kissers than bad boys, but raging, protective Edward is pretty hot. I hope he gets to Bella soon and that doesn't end the story. Need to see them together - that's the good stuff. And I almost feel sorry for Sully - I don't think he's going to like it when Edward gets hold of him fearing after watching the video and fearing Sully may have raped his love. Ouch.

OK I totally didn't see that coming. I must admit I was afraid you were truly going to all out angst and kill off Bella. Eeeek - poor Katie, poor, poor Jamie. But I am far more attached to the main characters so seeing Edward pulled back from the depths of dispair is still a yea for me. He's heartbreaking in this chapter - so desperately in love with her, willing to do anything for more time with her. Having finally found happiness and something that completes him, he longs to hold on to it and keep his world whole. I'm a total fan of hea (happily-ever-after) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed . . .

 
Summary:

Bella Swan was your average woman working for a publishing company. She was certain that she was destined to be alone for eternity, much to her mother's dismay. However, two very different yet very similar men happen to walk into her life and change everything.

Hilarity and sex ensue. Loosely based on the movie, "Bridget Jones’s Diary".

An awesome collaboration between XShear (Seducing Edward, Unknown & Smut Series) and kARLOTITA09 (Forever is Where We Meet).

I honestly think she has decided. I agree with Alice. As much as she loves Masen, she's in love with Cullen. They fit. I do think it's wrong for her to be a selfish bitch though. Getting carried away is one thing. Purposefully fucking both of them is going to end in even more heart ache.

I feel bad for Masen though. He's finally falling for a woman and she's cheating on him and may leave him. Cullen is going into this knowing she's cheating - although I don't know how he'd ever trust her if they ere in a relationship later.

I've always been a sucker for hand holdin, forehead kissing, sweet guys. Never have understood wanting bad boys that treat you poorly (bad boys that treat you well in a different story ;). So no matter how drop dead sexy Masen is, why did he have to be the one with the accent?!?, knowing he slept with his brother's wife is definitely a turn off of epic proportion for me. Cullen just needs to clear up a few things and then be his sweat self with her - same great bod, same gorgeous face, same wonderfu packaging with a sweeter attitude. *Sigh*

Is Bella really ready to give up on Masen?? Is Masen really that much of a douche?? Will Renee ever leave poor Bella alone?? ummm, I hope. Yes. Never.

 

Seriously the mom answer seems pretty simple to me. "Hey mom, I told you we were just at the beginning of seeing each other. You insisting on meeting him freaked him out." OK maybe evil and I don't know if I could ever do it in real life (but IRL my mother never harassed me) but it would not only give Renee an answer as to why a man wasn' with her but perhaps convince her not to push so damn hard from then on. Renee deserves to think she chased of a potential boyfriend.

As for the situation with Masen, yes they agreed to casual but haven't been acting that casually. She either needs to accept casual or break it off with him, not put up with his shit - or would that be shite?

Wow, verbal diarrhea! In front of the parents of . . . well, both guys she likes ;) Mason is sexy but an ass. Cullen can't seem to keep his foot out of his mouth and then she won't let him explain (ok he got to explain the first meeting but not the 'it isn't a competition, my brother fucked my wife')

More Cullen; he definitely hasn't gotten equal time. On paper or with Bella. When Cullen says something stupid, she's ruthless. When Mason does (like the post-sex elevator talk or claiming the flowers), she forgives him. Give the poor guy a chance.

She should stick to her guns though. He isn't 12; he's alittle too old for the fear of commitment thing. She should dump his ass for freaking about dinner with parents after a few months.

Normally I'm all for Cullen, but Masen kinda redeemed himself in the chappie. Thing is, I don't think he can keep it up. This is a man who slept with his brother's wife. I think he's a dick. He can try to be nice for a while but I don't think he can maintain it. Of course it's sucked Bella right back in . . .

So I love the story but . . . I just don't see how this is gonna work long term. It's hard enough to love two guys but brothers? If she bounces back and forth how is she expecting his parents - or her's for that matter - to accept it? I can understand loving both of them. I was totally pro-William, but James is actually acting lovable now.

The dream scene . . ghuh. Honestly that's pretty much what comes tomind when I think of both of them. If they can't be near each other without fighting, Bella could always make sure to be in the middle.

OK she had definiteley crossed into selfish hurtful bitch in my book. I think they should both dum her ass. She isn't worthy of either of them. She childish - buying a dog just to stick her tongue out at him? How old is she? I love you ... and I love you ... I'll do anything to be with you ... I'll marry you ... but I don't know.

At first I realy wanted Cullen to get her because he seemed the more genuine guy and like he deserved happiness. Now I think she should be with neither or Masen. He's a cheat too and may fuck her over which she'd deserve. I want Cullen to be happy and I think he needs to find a good woman for that.
