Welcome back to Fan Fic Friday! It’s nearly New Year’s Eve and, inspired by Tamie’s Top Ten lists, Annie and I have compiled our own fic list… the stories that owned us this year. This was soooooo hard - TWSS!
Annie’s top pick: We Come to Life Beneath the Stars by LillyBellis
As Bella Swan starts over with hopes of finding her future, Edward Cullen is hanging on desperately to his past. She’s treading water, and he’s a corporate golden boy. They share an office, but few words…until one night changes everything.
From Annie: This is my favorite fic of the year. Bella is trying to build a life on her own terms but this jerk she works with is not helping, even if he is a hottie. Why is he so strange and secretive? I love, love, love Lilybellis’s work. Her writing is beautiful and her stories never fail to touch you. This one has romance, humor, a little family drama and a sweet Edward (my favorite). Love.
It Happened One Night by Spanglemaker9 From Annie: When ‘just sex’ isn’t. This Edward reminds me of Tyler Hawkins a little. (He does not die.) I read this one four times at least.
The Cellar by iambeagle Boy meets Girl. Girl’s friend throws up on Boy’s shoes. A story about wannabe hipsters, awkward moments, and soul mates. (Debb: Twitter was abuzz with this one and I can’t wait to read it!)
Love in my Box by CosmoandMarvar Bella’s an intellectual free spirit and Edward is a reserved, slightly geeky med student. They have a brief, but intense encounter on Sp Brk in Miami. Can they find true love through emails? There will be lemons and laughs. Look who’s writing this!
This is a contender for top spot for me. Beyond hilarious but also sweet and oh so sexy. This is the Edward for me. Why can’t he be real? *sobs* Also, I like to pretend the Esme in this story (Edward’s wonderfully raunchy, frequently sloshed mother) was based on me. A wonderful bonus is the number of outtakes for Love in my Box! The story never has to end! *twirls* Be sure to check those out. This is a double Top Ten as it appears on both my and Annie’s list.
Lots more after the jump!
