I am an Italian woman, married, with a grown son. Recently, I have become a grandmother. I used to write a lot, in Italian and English, but not fiction. My field is environmental policies. I got twilighted, bad, and discovered fan fiction. So here I am, having written already 16 stories for twilighted net. One has even been published by an Italian magazine and another newspaper has interviewed me about the saga and the messages it gives to those who want to understand them.


The gist of it can be found on my profile on fanfiction net


http://www.fanfiction.net/~camilla10


English is not my native language, but in the twilighted and  fanfiction net communities I have found wonderful people, ready to help me, edit my work and discuss my stories.


On my part I am prepared to help with spelling or other suggestions anybody who is using Italian in her/his stories.


All my stories are translated into Italian and a few of them are to be found in the Italian section of fanfiction net. Should you liketo read the ones who are not there you can pm me and I will mail them to you.

As Bella Sleeps by blondie Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 73]
Summary: Feature

Photobucket

This story is a Midnight Sun-type one-shot, that is, Edward's POV of Twilight.

It takes place at between TW14 (Mind over Matter) and TW15 (The Cullens) while Bella sleeps – a peek into Edward’s infatuation, and how he reacts to hearing Bella say 'I love you" for the first time.

First of all, an enchanting PoV, but of course the Twilight obsessed reader cannot forget the pain  to come. New Moon has yet to happen...

I cannot access the forum, dammit. I cannot make the so called Edward (he wishes) to answer me and the password I was given does not work, nor do I know how to change it to a simple and manageable one.

What should I do? I am so frustrated...

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.

I have read this with extreme difficulty. I have reread the 4 Twilights books many times now, but on New moon I always start with Laurent, or with the jump from the cliff, because the part before it is too painful. (How can a mature woman be so stupid?)

And this was no party, either, because is too well written and the pain is there with a vengeance. Well, I hope we move to Volterra soon (That part I like a lot)



Author's Response:

Thanks for suffering through this - believe me I totally understand!  8-)

Volterra is my favorite part, too,  I have part of it written already.  Hopefully only one more chapter before we catch up with SM's snippet.

So glad you're sticking with me!

Powerful scene, the one with Jasper, I liked it a lot. Now we are getting to the vote. It is one of my favorite scenes (I don't remember if I ever told you) because it is soooo American. No Italian would ever think about it.

Reviewer: Camilla Signed
Date: October 12, 2009 Title: Chapter 21: Proposal

What a great chapter. I was stunned by the way Carlisle goes about changing Emmett. Filling himself with water, not ingesting a drop of blood. The capacity of denial and self punishment of Carlisle (and of Edward, in his own way) is part of the erotic fascination of Twilight. Not giving in is so much more exciting thatgiving  in alla the time ... Part of the reason it has captivated me and keeps me in thrall.

 
Summary: Edward was my son, and I had a fatherly duty to him to teach him about these things. I was going to give my hundred and seven year old, virgin son a sex talk. God help me, this was going to be awkward.

This is very good psicology. I wonder, though, why not you and nobody else has written with more detail what is in the mind of Edward when he comes back, finds Bella desperate for punisment and abuse and, on the contrary, he is calm, loving, mature and sure of himself.

Care  to do it ?

(In fact I am hoping that somebody does a serie titled moments of Edward's growth) including this and ending with the moment when he says goodbye  to Jacob and calls him my brother, my son.

What if Edward had gotten to Port Angeles too late and was faced with Bella begging him to do everything in his power to save her? She knows he has the power no one else does...what will he do? One night changes everything.

I have just started reading this story and  it looks interesting so i will continue. Good that in this way I have a lot of chapters already posted. I appreciate also the humor (The Prince Charming thing was great) but I have a problem. In the first chapter Bella has been raped by 4 men, or I got it wrong? Even accounting for the dimming of memories after the change, I cannot believe that she has dismissed it completely, that the awful experience has not scarred her psyche. Maybe you address it in later chapters, but I think that this issue should have been worked in, somehow...

Hi, I arrived to your story late, on suggestion of Booksgalore. I am happy I  started. By the way I think that the Spanish teacher name is Mrs Goff .

This from Midnight Sun draft. Edward says she does not mind he absents himself (to bring Bella home after blood testing), and later he says that she does not mind him not paying attention, because his Spanish is better than hers .

OK, now i reached chapter 17, so I can give you some feedback. It is amazing how you write a different story remaining true to the characters. And I feel that I am going to suffer like I suffered in New moon even if it will be for different reasons due to different plot.

I will reach the end quickly, as I am a fast reader in English as I am in Italian (my mother tongue), and then I will start asking for more. Uffa, one should only read completed stories...

Date: February 05, 2009 Title: Chapter 31: Relentless

I have reached the end of the written part and I am waiting, SO MUCH, for you to continue. Who does not love an angsty, tortured love story, very well written? But I have also a criticism, if I may: I am missing two things: 1.Jacob sarcasm. I am not Jacob team at all, but I like him in the SM story because the more he suffers, the more sarcastic he gets. Now he has suffered enough, changed enough to get sarcastic.  2. The real monsters: I miss James, Victoria, Laurent, the Vulturi, the newborns. The are essential because they are part of Edward world and one of the reasons why Edward is afraid to have a human Bella in his life, and because they add the danger element to the plot, making it so much more interesting. The danger element is a catalyst that should not be missing. Of course you don't need to have a step by step introduction of the monsters as it happens in the saga, but please let in some of them.

 
Reviewer: Camilla Signed
Date: March 29, 2009 Title: Chapter 32: Hypocrisy

The slow pace of this story is killing me, but I will follow it to the (hopefully not bitter) end. The scene of Edward "giving the numbers" to Bella is one of  the most powerful I read anywhere so far.The funny thing is that I had forgotten that it was in this story, and I did not not know where to go and re-read it.

This has happened also because I think that we have not been alerted for updates from the site for a while. I found I had missed some chapters. And this has happened with some other stories too. Maybe because the site was upgraded and malfunctioned for a while.  I hope it is OK now, and wait for therest

 



Author's Response:

The end will not be bitter, trust me.  I'm not sure about the site malfuntioning, but I have noticed that some of the stories I love have updated without me noticing...so you may have something there.  Anyway, thanks for the review and for reading despite Bitter Bella (the IVO equivalent to Debbie Downer).

 I have just finished reading this story. When it was running I was  fixed on canon and not reading AU (Now I am writing AU!). Then I saw that there is another story that is a follow up, so I tried to read this first. It has delighted me. I had the pleasure to read it as a book, not having to wait for updates, and of course the cliffhangers had no effect. (ha)


I love your Cullens so much that I would like to be a relation (No, not be part of the family,  there are no available males left).  I really like your disinhibited (is this an English word?) Edward, the less than perfect Carlisle and the awesome Esme.


So now I try the next one

Reviewer: Camilla Signed
Date: April 08, 2009 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6

This is great, sensual and dark, I just cannot wait for more.

But I have a curiosity. I am always interested in the economics of the vampire world. In my stories, if  the need arises, I give explanations about it. I mean, we know the Cullens are very rich, not to speak of the Volturi, and nomads do not need much, probably they just steal what they need, but if you tell of a vampire having a house, buying books, music, travelling not on foot, etc. he must have money. So about this terrible and fascinating Vampward,  where is his money coming from?

 
Summary:

She was sought after for her scent, but soon revealed to be more than just a monster's drug. It was her destiny to embrace destruction, and nothing could have prepared Bella for what lay ahead in the dark chambers and corridors of Volterra Castle. As far as she was concerned, her life ended the day she stepped foot in that cursed city. She didn't count on Edward Cullen.

With a soul as kind and pure as Bella's, how could anything evil come from her? Edward and Carlisle are willing to take the risk in rescuing this broken, beautiful girl, but the challenges are more than any of them could have imagined.

Carlisle on left, Aro in middle, Edward and Bella on right with angelic glow. Title in the middle with Aro.

Down The Rabbit Hole graphic by casket4mytears

After departing Forks with the rest of the Cullen family, Alice becomes increasingly preoccupied with the information revealed to Bella by James about her life as a human and the vampire who changed her. Told partially through flashback and through present-day (read: during the New Moon time span) events, Down The Rabbit Hole explores the details of how Alice comes to an understanding of her past.

"I read that letter, just last week
You were telling me the darkness had taken you
and it had only lasted a week
I don't know where your saviour is...
Check the back room
He's writing the book that describes the end
as you're passing this life

Now I see it: it's a doorway
It's a doorway to my love..."

New Moon still disturbs me so much that I don't read the first part, when re-reading the saga and start with the cliff jump. Now I have to read about Edward's desperation, added to Bella desperation and I just can't stand it.

On the contrary, I enjoy BD totally and can re-read it anytime. I will review your other story when I have finished this punishment (Which has nothing to do with your capability as a writer, which is great....)

I promise that this story for the vast majority deals with Alice.  Bella never appears directly, Edward is very in and out, more to show the passing of time and to set up details for TTLG.  Trust me - you NEED to read this one.  It's my baby!  And there's loving Jasper/Alice!

Author's Response:

Thanks Camilla. :)

IMO, Carlisle as a character is just as interesting as Edward. He is very complex and has been through a lot in his 400 years. Edward is his favorite son, which makes perfect sense to me considering the situation, and he's also more of a father to Edward than any of the others.

The next chapter should be up next week.
