Stories have always been a part of my existence. Immersing myself in a story is my idea of heaven. Like so many others that I have encountered since entering the world of on-line fan-fics, I am an educator. Sharing my love of stories is what brings me some of the joy that I hope to find throughout my life. While I am not an author yet, I am trying to find the courage to make an attempt someday soon. I hope that hanging out with some of the amazing talent here will rub off on me.


In the mean time, I would be honored to work on helping others with their work of telling more stories.

Updated November, 2009

This story is now COMPLETE!

Dark Side of the Moon is my version of New Moon from Edward’s point of view.  Witness how Edward agonized over leaving Bella, hunted for Victoria, faced the Volturi, and came to realize that with Bella was where he was meant to be. 

This tormented story has been a part of my life for about a year and a half – and what a ride it’s been!  Meant to be canon and in character, I hope you enjoy angsty Edward and his suffering during New Moon.  As unhappy as Bella was during this time, Edward suffered so much more (I think).  So be sure and crack open a fresh box of tissues before reading!

 Thank you to everyone for all the reviews, especially to those of you who reviewed each and every chapter!  Your support and loyalty have been the driving force to me getting this project finished – and I hope it’s lived up to all of your expectations.

Love you all,

blondieakarobin

PS.  As one last thank you, I’ve posted a formatted, printable copy of Dark Side of the Moon at http://bit.ly/2vLHMi, as will also post as an electronic version suitable for viewing on a kindle or MobiReader.  I’m also posting a ‘Director’s Cut’ that includes citations of all of Bella’s quotes from Twilight, research notes, and even funny comments from my betas in this version in the same directory.

Use of the dialog from the series is just for clarity - Stephenie Meyer owns all things twilight!  I'm making absolutely nothing from this work.

Blondie,

May I just start by saying that I have been following your stories for some time now. I started off with "Brotherhood" (I laughed for days over that one; still pull it out when I need a good giggle), then when I found your tag for "Dark Side" I immediately followed you like a good stalker should. For the last month I have been haunting this site, waiting (not so patiently) for the next chapter to appear. Waiting for and reading your work has helped to fuel my SM addiction. Other than Ms. Meyer's own interpretation, I have not found a truer voice for Edward than yours. You completely understand him. I also appreciate how you stay within the cannon of the TW universe. It's refreshing to read stories that add to the experience instead of trying to take them to a distant and ultimately unsatisfying ending. Thank you for all of the time, effort and wonderful talent that you expend in bringing more Edward to the world.

PS I really have a hard time waiting for the next chapters. Write, woman, write! :)



Author's Response:

I love my stalkers!  Sorry for the wait - happy holidays do not lend to sad, angsty writing...hahaha

Thanks so much - the fact that this story fits into the world SM created is exactly what I'm trying to do.  It's her Edward we want to see suffer, after all!  I hope I can continue to live up to all these great reviews!  8-)

Now if I can just get Edward to South America... 8-)

I think that it is absolutely wonderful that this will be complete before the premier on Friday. This story has been an awesome compliment to New Moon. You've done these characters, all of them, proud. I am only sorry that I won't have this to look forward to. This story was my initiation into fanfic, which has become my new obsession. Thanks for opening that door for me.

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!!!

OK, I just read the first 12 chapters and now I really feel like I'm hanging on a cliff. I can't believe that Edward would up and leave Bella to James! There has to be some sort of plot thing going on. Is it really fair that he's going to have to fight against Jacob and James for her? Please hurry with the next chapter!

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 know that this story is winding down and you're starting classes here quick (good luck with the new school year, btw), are you thinking that this will be the end, end, or will there be some sort of sequel or a new story to work on?
