Summary:

A story about pain... patience... depression... desire... addiction... passion... healing... hope... and above all, love.

Bella moves to Alaska after a devastating accident tears her life apart, leaving her depressed and alone.  Consumed by her loss, she spirals into a deep depression.  At her new high school, she meets Edward Cullen and her life will never be the same. 

Edward moves to Alaska to start over with his coven - as he has been doing for the past four centuries.  Spending hundreds of years alone on the fringes of society has turned him into a pessimistic, sarcastic rebel who has lost hope of ever finding a mate.  The moment he sees Bella Swan, his life is turned upside down.

As friendship and obsession grow into love, Edward helps Bella overcome her crippling grief and teaches her how to live again.

I was a little confused at the update notice I received, but once I figured out which story it was I was so happy. I was just thinking about this story while reading some stories from the Tattward contest, but couldn't remember the name. Perfect timing! I am looking forward to your next post; please stay healthy!

nice twist. and alice stuttering. beautiful.



Author's Response:

Alice had a different scenario in mind. She hoped to scoop Bella up, take her to Carlisle, have him (or someone else) change Bella, find Edward, and then everyone would live Happily Ever After.

Instead, Bella's angry and hurt, the Wolves are back, and there is a vampire stalking their old home.

great combination of angst and humor. Damn it, why couldn’t they make cell phones you could slam down? love it and seriously, why can't they?!



Author's Response:

LOL! I've always wondered about that. Just pushing the button angrily doesn't have the same effect as slamming it down.

She was tired of playing Cassandra, screaming fruitlessly into the wind while everyone she loved marched firmly and blindly down the path to doom and destruction. - just about knocked me out with this. I can't believe i never made this connection, but then again, i'm not a writer and you are.



Author's Response:

LOL! Thanks. I like to think Alice fought, not only for Bella, but for Edward. It makes more sense than that passive shit of New Moon.

 
Fire and Ice by Franny Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 336]
Summary:

This story begins by re-imagining a favorite scene from Eclipse, in which Edward and Bella are stuck in a blizzard and must call on Jacob to keep Bella warm.  The original scene hints at Bella's curiosity, Edward's awareness, and Jacob's lust, and the possibilities that lie within that love triangle.  This version asks, what if Bella took what she wanted? What if Edward's long-dormant humanity were finally sparked? And what if Jacob's fantasy finally came true?

"Anything I had ever felt, allowed myself to feel, had been only a hint, a taste, a glimmer of that all-consuming heat.  That heat that Bella had plunged me headlong into, mercilessly immersing me in Jacob’s subconscious, ruthlessly repaying me for her months of frustration.  Teaching me desire in one cold, confusing night."

 

happy to see my local Blockbuster advertising my fic for me:

that freezing, blazing night in the tent - ung.

avid reader. teacher. bilingual. no other words for that particular phrase.

ironically enough i wrote the above before i read the following:

Conversing with vampires sometimes felt like being in a foreign country where you knew the language but had never spoken it with the natives before; you knew the words but had no time to process them or rearrange them into an appropriate response, and your tongue could never form them quickly enough.

so you knocked me speechless and impressed me with your insight. wow. can i have a sneak peek now? please?

wow. i was thinking it might be emmett and bella, especially because of the blonde. wow. that was so good. i was also wondering about why condoms would only be used for cleanup, shouldn't she (whoever she was) worry about birth control? you got me good. well done. now let me go so i can re-read that.



Author's Response:

there are a few well-cloaked and subtle clues buried throughout that harken back to canon...  i'm very proud of this little story, and am thrilled that you enjoyed it!

she truly was just a nameless blonde. 

there is an alternate pov companion one-shot ready to be posted as soon as the contest for which this was written is over.  i hope to have it loaded by the end of next week.  it goes into much more detail on their family, individual back stories and relationship over the years, including the morning after and a brief epilogue, and is almost 3x the length of "Simple."

thank you again for your review!

Beautiful Lies by tmr Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1081]
Summary:

Emily Haines, Our Hell, Dir. Jaron Albertin

In her incoherent state after Edward leaves her in the forest, Bella's sleeping lips betray her: "Edward is a vampire and I will be one too."  Although the story opens in a mental hospital, it quickly leaves after the first chapter and never looks back...  AU/Dark:  This is not your typical AU-New-Moon story line.  The first few chapters are somewhat normal, but the story then takes a quick and hard turn into a very AU.

Reviewer: izziey Signed
Date: April 27, 2010 Title: Beautiful Lies

i like how bella makes sense of her life; that it didn't make sense until she met edward. i was a bit skeptical of jane's power until you explained the relationship between the types of pain she could conflict. clever you!

my one peeve, and i realize i don't have the entire story yet, so i'm being patient, is that bella seems all-powerful. the "bella-saves-the-day-all-by-herself" solution in BD got on my nerves, so i hope to see something different.

either way, i'm enjoying the ride on the way.

gotta say, why i haven't seen any other stories where someone hears bella talking in her sleep makes me shake my head. it seems so obvious - but notice i didn't think of it either!

 
Reviewer: izziey Signed

first of all, i had to respond to your bio. i also was hooked immediately. i rented the movie, read midnight sun online, and four days later had devoured the books. (and gained a lot of points from my students) i love your explanation of your inspiration - the depression and the sleep-talking. it seems like such an obvious leap, but you're the first story that has this premise. so far i like what i've read. now, please excuse me, i have some reading to do.



Author's Response:

LOL.  Our addiction origins are similar indeed. :)

Thanks for your kind compliment!

 
Reviewer: izziey Signed
Date: August 02, 2009 Title: Beautiful Lies

i just want to let you know that i am really enjoying your story. i have dealt with depression, although nowhere near the depression that you depict bella enduring, and your description feels familiar, though much more intense. thank  you for including warnings at the beginning of each chapter. by the way, i may not review every chapter, because i really want to get to the next one. maybe that's why the percentage is low, everyone just needs to find out what happens next!



Author's Response:

I SO appreciate you reviewing as you read - it's so great to hear your reactions to each chapter.

Thank you!

 
Reviewer: izziey Signed
Date: August 02, 2009 Title: Beautiful Lies

thank you for the explanation, but i got all of that from what you wrote. it was a bit unclear, but that was purposeful. i like how bella and edward are pretty much in character, but you've added your own details - the knife, edward's bargain with the volturi. i mentioned this in an earlier review, but i'm still surprised that no one put the sleep-talking and volturi together before.



Author's Response:

Severe depression with sleep talking never seemed to mix well in my mind. :)  Thanks so much for your thoughts.
