So, here we are, another Friday upon us. The stories I want to share with you this week could not be more different from each other, but some how I loved them both equally. It is one of things I love most about Twilight fan fiction; there are so many choices out there. Alternate Universe, All Human, sexy, romantic, fluffy, funny, or angsty.
This is a collaboration actually. Cosmogirl7481 and SydneyAlice. Our Annie here recd. this back in August, so that would explain how I found out about it. See her review here.
If you are looking for a light romantic read, this is the one for you. I loved it, because Edward and Bella meet in a library, and I have a “thing” for libraries/book stores. Something about them just gets me warm. *giggle* I blame GG’s Weight of Words and Tyler Hawkins for this. Just saying…
’R’ is a zombie. He has no name, no memories, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows – warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can’t understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.
This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won’t be changed without a fight…
Hey there, It’s me, Annie, all by my little self here. Today, I’ve got two great WIPs for you. I know, I know, many of you are ‘complete’ only. I understand, believe me. If you stay ’til the end I’ll have something for you too, deal?

“Every day for the rest of my life, I will wonder how kissing a virtual stranger goodbye could have felt like a hello.”
Unemployed, with her savings dwindling, Sara Howell thinks things are looking up when she lands a ghostwriting job and rents the affordable island home of her favorite author, Seth Fortner, who mysteriously disappeared in 1925. Strange things happen, making Sara wonder if Seth ever left. When she finds an old trunk of Seth’s letters, she delves into a world she never imagined, filled with love and a family curse it seems only she can break.
I am hoping by now, everyone who is reading this, has seen the final movie in the Twilight saga. Breaking Dawn Part 2. (Rob’s right. I don’t like that word either. Saga. It does sound like an old person. LOL) I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t seen it though, so if you need to, skip down past the first image, and start there. I won’t blame you, if you want to stare at the image for moment though. *giggle* I loved the close ups of Bella kissing all over Edward’s neck and face. Yum. I am so digressing here.
If I ever get to meet Bill Condon, the director, I would hug him and thank him for such an amazing final movie. It’s obvious that he loved the books and the whole series as much as we fans do. Anyone else fall out of their seats in shock, and feel like their hearts were going to end up in their laps at the shocking twist near the end? I actually felt numb, and zoned out for a minute or two. I personally think that it made the movie better. What about the end credits? Sob fest, right? I think I cried more at my third viewing. It finally hit me that this is it. There will be no more movies to wait for and talk about. *heavy sigh* I am glad for the actors and the author that everything ended on a high note for them. They deserve much success in their futures.
As Bella said, “I’ll never get enough of this.” I completely agree!
At any rate, the movie made me want to dive head first into my TBR list of AU stories. So I thought I would share with you what I am reading right now, and some new favorites as well.
Since most people are probably at a theater right now, watching Breaking Dawn 2, (including myself) this will not be a big and important post. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t read anything that I want to share with you though.
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both a fantasy and a nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice, to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life, has become the thread from which the fate of two tribes hangs.
Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?
It’s time for one of our “Favorite Edward” posts! This time we want to share with you some of our favorite Edwards who are the boss. Vampire, 109 year old, but stuck at 17, Edward is great, but there are some really amazing AH Edwards who actually work for a living, right?
I can safely say, I would NEVER be late for work, if my boss looked like this. Man, the things I would do, to get on his “good side”…
