Seducing Ms Swan by Rialle Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3026]
Summary:

 

AU Post-New Moon.

Bella never jumped, Alice never had her vision and Edward never came back. Six years later, Bella is struggling to make a new life for herself as a teacher in Rochester, New York. How will she fare when a very familiar student crops up in her classroom? Will she be able to remain professional, or will old ties get in the way?

Edward is convinced that getting Bella back is just a matter of 'persuasion', but Bella isn't prepared to be that cooperative. What's more, she's in the grip of a dark secret which threatens to prevent her from loving ever again.

Bella Swan is slipping under...

I LOVED this chapter. You did an outstanding job with Jacob's POV. I could feel the anger and hurt in his words as I read it. PLEASE continue with the story.

 

 
Summary:

cover banner

Bella went cliff diving, but it didn't turn out so well. She broke her back. A decade later, Edward reappears in her life on the same night she loses her best friend and husband to a freak accident. Now a graduate student in Women's Studies, Bella isn't thrilled to see him. But when the Cullens re-enter Bella's life, they bring change, hope, and a new joint project that will require all their expertises.

Special Update:

For personal reasons (a ridiculously full teaching schedule and being recently put in charge of a bi-annual local conference and ongoing project), I am no longer able to reply to reviews and questions. But that said, I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to EVERYBODY for the wonderful feedback and kind words that have been sent my way since the completion of this story in August 2009. I do still check my messages about once every 1-2 weeks and read *every* review. I just have too many to reply to anymore, but I didn’t want anyone to think I was ignoring her/him in particular, or didn’t appreciate readers taking time to leave a review. Writing this story was tons of fun and I’m thrilled readers seem to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the chance to write it. I can’t tell you how flattering that is!!! As I used to reply to all reviews, I feel a little badly about this decision, but work has been requiring virtually all of my time since the new (academic) year began.

Best to all of you in 2010 and beyond!

I really enjoyed reading your story. I thought it was kind of slow initially, but then I seen that it all was important. I also like the fact that you included the Volturri wives. They don't get enough mention at all. Although I am an avid E/B fan, I di enjoy the fact that the story showed how important women are and how we are not reliant upon men.

Even though you mentioned not writing another story, I hope that maybe later, if inspired, that you do. This story was phenomenal.



Author's Response:

Thanks!  And yeah, all those bits and pieces actually played into the end! :-)  It was a lot of fun to write the wives, not the Volturi we're familiar with -- look at their possible story a little.  What I gathered from the Lexicon is that they were already vampires when they joined, so it made me wonder how they became vampires. :-)

It was so moving. I am still crying after reading this. You did a wonderful job.



Author's Response:

Aww thank you so much.  I'd say I'm sorry for making you cry, but that would be a lie.  I'm glad you connected to the story enough to want to cry :) 

Thanks too for taking the time out to review, I do appreciate it. 

I hope you continue to read and enjoy this.

Excellent!!! I was thinking the same thing about the blood in the newborns. I had figured out several chapters ago when it was first mentioned about Charlie's body missing that he would be a vampire. At least this way, he and Bella can be together. I look forward to your next update. I just started reading this story and I have REALLY enjoyed it.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much :)  so glad to know you have enjoyed this.  And that you were able to read several chapters at once :)

And I was surprised at how many people didn't think that Charlie would be a vamp.. that was an interesting chapter to get reviews on.

I hope you continue to read and enjoy this.  Thank you so much for taking the time out to review this chapter, I really do appreciate it.

Summary:

New Moon AU: When we fall down, sometimes, its best to pick ourselves up and move on, however hard it may be. 2 years after Edward leaves, this is what Bella is doing as she begins college. Only problem is... why does that TA look so familiar? Can new bonds be forged, or will the fires of love be quenched?

I love the story so far. I hope you update quickly.

 
Summary:

 

 

"In a moment’s time, I’d be his, entirely. The one thing I’d wanted more than anything itself. The pain, the pleasure- it was worth it knowing I’d be able to claim to be his…at long last.

 

"The silence in the room was deafening. The intimacy of this moment made the world hold its breath in anticipation. Time ceased to exist; the only fathomable concepts were Edward and me."

For all of us who read Breaking Dawn, closed the back cover and said; "Yeah...not what I expected..."

This is my version, my ending of the Twilight Saga. In short, it's purpose is to show how Edward and Bella meet the trials and tribulations of being newlyweds, Bella being a newborn as well as other things life has to offer. It's meant to highlight their love, devotion, the strengthening of their bond as well as how they grow together emotionally and physically.

Rated NC-17 for Mature themes, language and adult and sexual content.

WARNING: quite a few lemons here ;]

 

ON HIATUS!! LOOK FOR MY NEWEST WORK AND THE FOCUS OF MY ATTENTION, "Love Story" !!

I love the story. It is so much different than the other stories on the site. It seems that it really takes something drastic happening to straighten Edward out when he screws up. I am so glad that the rest of the family were there and supported Bella. I think that is how they would have supported her in New Moon if Edward had given them the chance. GREAT WORK!!!!

I would have thought that Edward would have also heard the vibrator when she turned it on after getting out of the shower.  He was probably still focused on her saying his name though. Really good story.

in my head, he could have confused it for an electric toothbrush sound... or like you said, been gobsmacked by hearing his own name.  :)  glad you like!
