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!!!

Son of a bitch! *lights a cigarette* That was one hell of a story!!! I hope it won all kinds of awards, because it really, really deserved them!! I was truly amazed at how you could stick to canon so well, even throwing in those iconic lines that we all recognize but in such wonderful and new ways. And you did an amazingly fantastical job of describing his... ethical dilemmas throughout the entire fic; what a spectacular idea to elaborate on "the monster" and make it into this sex-crazed charicature. It brought just the right amount of humor and realism to his narration. And every single lemon was just pure GOLD. Fucking brilliant story. Bravo!!

WOW. Now this is an amazing fic. It came highly reccomended and it did not disappoint!! This is one of the only stories I've read that isn't really predictable and is truly its own story, with a really intriguing plot, romance that tugs on your heartstrings and isn't all gooey and fluffy, and narration that is just phenominal. You really have a distinct voice for each of the characters, and have such insight into all their thoughts, and it mkes this fic all the more interesting to read. Excellently done. Can't wait for more!!

Blood & Lust banner

EPOV. Edward is having trouble balancing his urges for Bella's blood and Bella's body before the wedding. What started out as a simple "Practice Fic" has become a retelling of BD from EPOV that lets us see just how much he struggles for control at every turn.

Warning: Edward's got issues. Some dark images and angst, but nothing too bad and quickly giving way to steamy goodness.

Wow. This story is fucking amazing!!! You are really succeeding with staying true to canon--I find that all the lemons are much more believeable when you justify them with Edward's narration. You do such a good job of pushing him just a little further in each chapter, while still addressing his bloodlust with each sexual act. His narration really enhances the smut for me, in fact, because it really grounds all of it within the story. And you've also opened my eyes to things I hadn't considered before, such as teh sparkle peen!!! I don't think I'll be able to think about the sparkle without giggling ever again. Really wonderful job, and I can't wait for more!!



Author's Response:

Thank you for the wonderful review! I really appreciate you pointing out the different scenes & aspects that you enjoyed. I am working on the next chapter, although it is MUCH more angsty. (I have to deal with poor Eddie's misery & sheer agony during the pregnancy. His head is a troubling place to be inside during a time like that)

As for the sparkle peen... I'm fairly guilty of getting distracted by that idea myself. As you can see by my very inspired photoshop that I made as part of a story ad. ;)

Oh, this was so good! I'm glad you decided to include it and not just skip to the post-change smut. You really did capture Edward's worries well here, and Bella's reasoning too, for that matter. (I am still pissed that her whole pregnancy was told from Jacob's POV.) You also did a very good job of expressing his primal instincts without letting them take over the chapter, because I would imagine that they are a very real feeling he would be having. As much as I loved this chapter though, I am excited for more smut. Bring on the vampire sex! ;)



Author's Response:

Thank you!

Yes, vampy vamp sexin is soon to come. One more chapter to get through, and it's already written. Should update soon. Then it's go time!

 
Reviewer: Purple Akua Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: August 13, 2009 Title: Chapter 9: The Lump

Wow, this chapter was awesome!! I'm so amazed at how well you fit everything into the canon story; your added details worked in wonderfully. I was especially impressed with the lullaby and how it flowed so nicely into Renesmee thinking their voices were pretty. That part made me smile. And man, you broke down that birth scene excellently. I could picture everything so much clearer than when I read it in the actual book (sometimes to my chagrin; the borth scene is ridiculously gross). Fantastic job!!!

For the post-change sexin', I really only have one thing I'd like you to just clear up: in the book, Bella makes a big deal about how they don't have to eat or use the bathroom or anything, so sex can go on for hours and hours without stopping. But of course, we all know how it stops. So please, address this issue. Either have him last a super long time because he can handle himself better now that she's a vampire, or have them go several times without much rest in between. (Or some third option I haven't thought of.) I hope that's not super picky or anything, it's just always bugged me. Besides that, I'm sure whatever you have in mind will be smutty enough for my liking. ;)



Author's Response:

No, you actually make an excellent point about the sex. You just CAN'T throw out a comment like that in a book and not back it up, SM!! Hmmm..... now.... how to decide on whether he's a multiple sex machine or an energizer bunny? Maybe a bit of both? What lovely things to ponder!

Thank you for your lovely & thoughtful review!

Wow, I love this fic so much!!! Much Ado About Nothing is my favorite Shakespeare play, and Beatrice is my favorite of all his characters (aside from Henry IV's Falstaff, but anyway), so I was very skeptical about your adaptation of it. But it is brilliant!!! You do such a good job of blending Bella and Edward's teenage personas with the quick-wittedness of Beatrice and Benedick, and it is such a joy to read their arguments. Excellent job of building on their past relationship with much more detail than the Bard ever gave us as well. I can't wait to see how you adapt the rest of the play!!



Author's Response:

Beatrice is a fairly fantastic character, and I adore her stubborness and intelligence beyond almost any other Shakespearian female. I'm so glad you gave this a chance and have enjoyed it thus far. I know it's a stretch to accept a massacre of Much Ado about Nothing, and I'm thrilled it hasn't been ruined. Yet. :)

Thank you so much for your kind words; I look forward to more of your insight in the future!

Date: August 03, 2009 Title: Chapter 5: Masked and Un-Masked

Awesome chapter!! Your version of the masquerade was done so well! I love that you're expanding on Edward and Bella's romance, even if it means the Alice/Jasper/Hero/Claudio plot is getting cut. You did a great job of including a little of them at the end though, so I was not disappointed there. I can't wait to see how you pull off the graden scene!!!



Author's Response:

Thank you! I worry about you Shakespeare buffs ... if you'll get upset with the "alterations" or "expansions" to the plot, and I'm glad at least you were satisfied by the masquerade scene. It was a big one to finish! Took awhile, too! Thank you!

I DO want to reassure you that I'm not CUTTING the Hero/Claudio plot - I just didn't do the switcheroo at the masquerade. Because, logically, Carlisle would have had to randomly show up to this kegger, impersonate Jasper, and propose. FURTHERMORE, and this is the kicker, if we were doing straight Shakespeare here, Emmett would've had to sit Alice down and tell her to accept Carlisle's proposal had he given it.

HOLY PLOT POINTS, BATMAN!

Therefore I stayed away from it, and instead tried to demonstrate Jasper's insecurities in a much more obvious and idiotic way that Billy did. :) I hope you forgive my inferiority!

Oh yay!! I loved that you still fit Carlisle into the scheming, even though he's not actually there; very creative to have him on speakerphone! And of course the reference to the Benedick quote had me grinning from ear to ear. Your equivilent to the garden scene is next, right? That's pretty much my favorite scene of all time, and I can't wait to read your version of it!! Wonderful job!!

Very intriguing! I like the use of emails, texts and message board posts, and especially the combination of all three. That really makes the story cohesive, and we get to see a lot of different characters all at once with that strategy as well. I also really appreciate that you didn't make Edward the "brooding, mysterous, sexy rebel" that practically all other AU/AH stories make him out to be. That storyline gets mighty tiring, so I'm anxious to see the more soft and shy Edward that you're writing him to be. Awesome job! Can't wait for more!!

I mean, what keeps the reader guessing in this chapter is a game of phone tag of all things! God haven't we all had a time where we're in the ol' water closet and someone calls? So frustrating. I also really loved the conversations between Esme, Edward and Emmett; they were so hysterical!! Can't wait for more!

wanted her to bear my name and my children and to be my wife.

This is so great!! I love how much attention you gave to the details, especially in making everything period. The writing is also phenominal; your use of language makes me feel like I'm really transported to this royal place. Even the smutty part had a proper feel to it, which is not an easy task to accomplish! Well done!



Author's Response:

Thank you for your review!  I really tried to bring that place and time to life, and it's nice to feel like I succeeded.  And as for the smut...well, it was my first attempt and it took a lot of liquor for me to be able to really write it!  ;)

Thanks again for your kind words.  They really are appreciated.

This is a wonderful story!! Even though your Bella's personality is far from canon, I feel like I really know her and feel for her. You've also done a fantastic job of putting a lot of detail into the story, both art and non-art related. But I can't believe that after everything that's happened that Edward would think she wants to box him in like Tanya wanted to do! I am usually a fan of the fated stories, but I actually like the mystery of this one; I really have no idea if they'll end up together or not! Very excited for more!!

That is what I love most about this story, the realness of their relationship, and this chapter totally sealed it for me. The little anxious drama you included is just the right amount. :) And oh my God, Rose going to Chicago too!?! That will be so fun--I can't wait for it!! Glad to hear the next chapter will be up soon!!

 
Summary:

Edward falls in love with Bella from a distance as they share the same route to work.  Bella can't help feeling attracted to Edward as well but, being a bit of a cynic when it comes to love, she dismisses him as an impossible fantasy.  She prefers the comfort and safety of the content, but passionless, relationship she has with Jake.  When Edward and Bella actually meet, however, she considers giving the impossible a chance.

LOVE this!!! It is so well-written, I could just picture everything really clearly and everything flowed really well. I think I liked your dialogue the best though. The flirting was so realistic, and you still managed to incorporate some canon lines into it!! Fantastic! The story itself was very clever too, and I'm glad you didn't sully it with any smut. To be honest, that's what I was looking for when I came across this, but I'm so glad it made me swoon instead!! I can totally see it turning into a full-on story (I kind of want to find out who Edward's sister is supposed to be!), but it's really beautiful as a stand-alone oneshot. Excellent job!!



Author's Response:

Thank you for taking the time to review!

I’m so glad you enjoyed my little story. Your comments are so appreciated, especially as a new writer/poster. It's good to hear what's working and what isn't. I know lemons/smut would be expected with the context of the story, but I really did want to keep the focus on the romance and sweetness of their story.

I have made the decision to expand this o/s  into a short story. You will find out more about Edward's family and that situation. There also may be some citrus, but the focus will stay on the sweetness and romance. I’m in the process of outlining what I want right now and I’m very excited to start writing. It might take a little bit for me to post because I tend to write a little slower, but put me on your alerts so you can see when it comes out!

 
Scheme of Fate by thebugroom Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 696]
Summary:

Bella Swan moved to Forks, Washington after being brutally attacked and turned into a vampire in Phoenix. She's desperately trying to put her life back together when she finds out that she's not the only vampire in Forks. Will the Cullen Family and Edward in particular be able to show there that being a vampire isn't so bad after all?

 

QUOTE:

Edward's family wouldn't care if we took off together. He wasn't a child. He was old enough to be Charlie's grandfather and well knew how to handle himself even if I was simply a seventeen-year-old girl. Edward also had more money at hand than I was even aware of; I always tried not to think about just how rich the Cullens were.

We could literally disappear for months or years on end, checking in with the rest of the Cullen's periodically and they wouldn't think anything of it other than that they might miss us. We could, quite literally, travel the world.

I would really love some EPOV or a wrap-up with Victoria or even a wedding scene though. I have really enjoyed this fic, and have loved your spin on the series while keeping it as canon as possible. Amazing work!!

SO adorable. I am in love with how socially inept Edward is--my favorite was when Charlie had a coughing fit and he was worried that Bella would be mad at him for making Charlie sick. It's incredibly ridiculous and charming at the same time. I'm so glad we got to read what really happened with the fight, and that this chapter gave us a whole lot of Edward/Charlie bonding!! Also, I think from now on this story needs more Emmett. Please? The Power Rangers memory was too cute, and Edward definitely could use more guy friends, so I hope we see that in future chapters. Wonderful work. keep it up!!

Lol, I love Emmett to!

Sadly though, at this point in the story Emmett isn't a part of Bella's life and so I can't write him in her POV until a little later in the story. He's clearly awesome though - I adore him!

It's so nice to see Charlie stepping in and being supportive as well, and I'm glad Bella is starting to finally understand him a little. I'm excited for the imminent reconciliation, to say the least.

Okay, I love, love, LOVE this story. It is so dorky and quirky and adorable and brings up all these nostalgic middle school feelings and I just can't get enough of it. I adore your version of Bella, because even though she has her moments, she has an amazing sense of self and is so confident. And oh my God, your Edward is hysterical. I think my favorite chapter of all was the one in his POV when he talked to Charlie about "courting" Bella. He is just so endearing and nerdy and interesting, and I really hope we get to see more chapters from his POV. You also do an amazing job at writing their relationship. I love how they are such strong supports for one another, and in that way it really reminds me of their canon relationship, except you so cleverly brought it down to the immature level that middle schoolers operate on. I really can't wait to see how their relationship blooms and grows in high school, and hope we won't have to wait too long for it!! Thank you so, so much for writing this!!!

It was bound to happen sometime, and while I'm sad, I do like the way you wrote it. Cause that's how people, especially teenagers, break up--through slow, infiltrating doubt, and doing stupid things like keeping secrets. I do think they need to spend some time apart; their relationship is really intense for teenagers. I'll be interested to see how it happens, and how they each grow because of it. Very excited for more!!
