I'm a twenty-something just trying to find my place in the world.

I love to get lost in a book or a story.

I'm a stickler for good grammar. Call me the grammar police.

If my name wasn't a dead giveaway, I love love love hockey. Chicago Blackhawks baby! Stanley Cup Champs 2010! :)

Music is a essential part of my everyday life. There isn't a day that goes by that some song is stuck in my head.

And did I forget to mention I may have a bit of a Twilight obsession? Maybe just a little...who am I kidding? It's a full-blown addiction.

I've been nominated for a Tomato Soup Award :)

Encore by Oleander Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 959]



Edward pulls a Forrest Gump and runs at a most inappropriate time. When he and Bella reconnect five years later, can Bella forgive him enough to give him a chance or is it too late? Canon pairings, NC-17 for future lemons and mature subject matter.

I'm pissed at Alice for telling Adam the basics of the Bella and Edward tales. That's none of her business. Bitch! lol

Author's Response:

Alice was totally out of line on that, and had she not been so pissed off at that moment, I don't think she would have spilled the way that she did.  She needs to rein in her anger and impulsiveness.

I'll wave the white flag at the Alice bashing but I reserve the right to take it back and like the bashing commence again. Love the Michael Phelps sperm comment! Hilarious! And the Emmett prank...priceless!

Author's Response:

Emmett is a precious one, isn't he?  LOL! 

Hopefully you won't have any further reason to want to bash Alice.  I am floored at the reaction people have had to her...guess I didn't make her plight very convincing.

There's more Emmett coming up in the next chapter.

Leave it to Carlisle to bring some comic relief. I think the phone started the healing process for Esme. Nice touch!

Author's Response:

So glad you liked it, HC.  :)

I think it's cute and sad in a way that Edward has the bunny. Poor guy! I'm glad Bella is going to watch the movies but I can only imagine what is going to happen to her already weakened emotional state afterwards.

Author's Response:

I hope that the bunny isn't the one to start another world war.  I think it's sweet that he kept it, but I think he should have told her about it...hiding it is just going to upset her further.

The home movies...yeah, they're going to be tough.  There is a high tissue warning.

That had to be one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever read. My god! How can you write that? I totally don't mean that in a bad way, so please don't take it that way. Geez! As for Rose's confession, I think it's what Emmett needed to hear to bring him out of the darkness he was living through the past five years.

Author's Response:

I won't take it in a bad way, and you're not the first person to ask me that.  I guess I have a knack for writing sad stuff...although I wish I was better at writing the happy stuff.

Rose is a true gem, and really, I don't think Emmett would even be opening up about anything without her.

I love Emmett's students. Noah's poem was so funny and I can imagine a little boy singing that while he's doing his business lol. My guess at what Edward's present is going to be...a music composition about the tragedy and rekindling of his and Bella's relationship along with some sort of slideshow to accompany it. Wild guess though! Though he should just get her a pony lol

Author's Response:

Oh damn it!  Why didn't I think of getting her a pony?!  *giggle*

You're kind of warm.

I have so much fun writing Em's students.  I really should write them in more often.  :)  They're cute and sweet and you'll see them again in about ten chapters.

Go Team Bella! It's Your Birthday (well not really, at least not yet)! I'm so glad she slugged Adam. That asshat had it coming and not the good kind ;)

Author's Response:

LOL!  I had a feeling people would be happy about the slap. :)  He did deserve it.

I wish I was invited to that party. Drunken karokee is the funniest thing ever...especially when you're sober lol. Leave it to Emmett to bust out the Esme surprise. How sweet is he! I love Bella just calling Adam dick. That was funny as hell.

Author's Response:

Yes, drunken karaoke is a funny thing...unless you're the drunk fool up there singing.  ;)

Emmett just gets sweeter by the minute.  He's such a good guy.

I'm glad you enjoyed the party, though.

And the party don't stop till 6 in the mornin' (my bad attempt at being ghetto fabulous lol). This chapter was so heartfelt. Aww. Oh and "I didn't have the heart to tell him, but I've smelled sweeter-smelling shit from Emmett's ass" One of the funniest lines I have ever read! I swear I was laughing so hard I was crying. Oh sweet Esme, how you are corrupted by the youth lol

Author's Response:

I think Esme likes to play with their heads...I know that every now and then my own mother will pop out with something like that and shock the shit right out of us.

Those childhood stories were hilarious. You have to write more of them.

I'll try to work more of them into the story.  I wasn't sure if people would like them or not.

Edward and Jasper's conversation shed some light on things. Thanks for the warning about the upcoming chapter!

Seriously, I was tearing up with the kids and Emmett. Poor Jaden broke my heart. You did warn us though.

Author's Response:

I DID warn you.  In big bold letters, too! 

Jaden really seems to be the breaking point for most people.  He's a cute kid.  I'd like to bring him back...I doubt it'll happen, but it would be nice.

Daniel Gale is the dork of my dreams. I want to be invite to their next Halloween party. And who the hell was that in Bella's room? How fitting that he is a vampire lol

Author's Response:

OMG, don't you just ADORE Daniel Gale?!  Love, love, love him!!!

As for the vamp...there's no one better to suck the life out of a party.  *groan*  I know, I know, bad pun.

Why can't things just run smoothly for these two? If anyone deserves happiness, they do. Edward better prove his ass and not run like a chicken shit like last time...bastard! Ok, I feel better :)

Author's Response:

I'm glad you got it out of your system and are feeling better.

I swear this isn't gratuitous, this is all happening for a reason.

I'm so proud of Bella. She's been through so much and still comes bouncing back...well maybe not bouncing but you get the picture.

She's doing what she can.  She's a tough cookie with a creamy middle.  ;)

A nice light and airy chapter! That really is a switch :)

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed it.  If I may be honest, this one was light and airy because the next chapter is going to be a rough one.  In fact, the next two are going to be extremely hard.  So, keep the tissues nearby because you may need them.  I've been told that chapter 34 is probably the hardest one to read in the entire story.

Reviewer: HockeyChick Signed

Poor Bella! Edward just can't catch a break.

Author's Response:

Everything happens for a reason, and although we may not understand why at the time, it's all leading to something, and everything is going to come to a head in the next chapter.  There is a major breakdown but also a breakthrough by both Bella and Edward that will allow them to maybe begin to put the pieces back together and move forward instead of wallowing in the past.

Keep your tissues handy.

That had to be one of the saddest things I have ever read. And I for one am NOT getting sick of your story. Pish Posh! That's blasphemy! :)

Author's Response:

Thanks HC, I'm glad no one is getting sick of this yet.  There's been a lot of concentrated angst in this story and sometimes I wonder if it's dragging you guys down.  There's a little more angst to come and then Encore is done...and then we're on to happier times with some angst smattered in for the sequel.  ;)

Emmett is seriously the big brother I want. Too bad I don't have any siblings. I'm with Bella on doing Dr DILF! I loved the flashback with Emma.

I saw Eclipse at Midnight. I didn't like how it skipped around and didn't follow the book as closely as the other ones did but that's just me. I loved that there was more Jasper, Emmett, Carlisle, and Charlie. Sign me up for that gang bang train :)

Author's Response: I'm responding from the line up for my second viewing of Eclipse. I love my Crackberry! You slay me! Gang bang train!! I think there'd be a lot of people wanting to buy tickets for that ride. I'm lucky that I have two brothers (one older, one younger) who are both very Emmett-like. I guess I'm lucky.

Oh Emmett! Typical male lol. I loved the song Rainbow Connection when I was younger. Nice pick!

Author's Response:

I also loved Rainbow Connection when I was a kid and it used to make me cry when I'd hear it.  There's something so very sad/heartbreaking about the sound of Kermit the Frog singing it, I think.  Jason Mraz does an incredible version of should check it out.

Glad you got a giggle out of Emmy.  :)

It's time for Edward to break down over Emma. It's only fair. Everyone is entitled to a breakdown, right?

Author's Response:

You are so right, HockeyChick.  It's a good time for it to happen, now that Bella is stronger, has more clarity on the situation, and can help Edward.  She's the best person for him to lean on...if he'll do it.

That was just adorable. It was so sweet, I have cavities but that's ok, it was worht it. I know that's cheesy. Lizzie stole that chapter! Seriously, can you bring her back for another chapter, please?

Author's Response:

Lizzie might not make a reappearance in Encore, but she'll likely be around in the sequel.  :)  I had so much fun writing her!

Sorry about the cavities.  :)
