FANFIC Friday: Is it hot in here? We’re working up a sweat with Jockwards!

Happy Friday and welcome back. Today, Annie and I have two fics to share and a theme.


I don’t know why saying ‘Jockward’ makes me giggle so much but it does. Jockstrap, Jock itch… Jockward. Yeah, that’s probably it. Seriously, an athletic Edward is a hot Edward; strong and buff and sweaty and probably all cocky and you see where I’m going with this I’m sure. 😉 First though, I wanted to apologize for not having a proper rec for you today. I’ve had a couple of very rough weeks and haven’t had the time or energy for very much reading. I’m glad this sports-themed post was planned because I’m going to trust in Savage and rec her Soccerward story without reading it. Forgive me?

Offside by Savage7289

Edward’s the star keeper for the Forks High School soccer team, and is already being scouted by leagues overseas.  Bella’s just moved from Phoenix and interferes with his…focus.  Soccerward lives! Rated M for the good stuff, of course.

Savage never disappoints and this is a complete story. 125 (!) chaps and over 30k reviews. I am so looking forward to reading this.

Annie’s Jockward choice after the jump!

On to Annie’s choice for Jockward! We are very happy to be featuring our good friend Marina’s fic.

Foul Territory by Rinabina aka Marina

After being dragged to a baseball game by her best friend, Bella Swan meets handsome first baseman Edward Cullen with the help of a foul ball. There’s something about him that she can’t put out of her head, and apparently neither can he.

From Annie:  Oh man. Rinabina has managed to give us not only an appreciation of baseball players but of the excitement and joy of the game of baseball as well.  It’s a sweet romance with humor and a little drama. You may want to throw a baseball at Edward’s head at one point. LOL Edward is sexy and sweet though. Did I mention sexy? He’s an athlete, if you know what I’m sayin. Rinabina tells her story wonderfully and the lemons are both sexy and romantic. Did I mention he’s an athlete? Professional. With a nice apartment and shower. Yeah. Very enjoyable. Go. Read.

Annie and I have a few more Jockwards to share *coughthatsoundsdirtycough* in a future post. A series of posts perhaps? I’m looking for a good Surferward – I need the sun and the beach in my life right now. Now it’s your turn! Got a favourite Jockward? Party in the comments below. 🙂

Have a lovely weekend. xoxo Annie and Debb

    I also loved both of these! Savage always satisfies, and FT was great with just the right twist of angst. Love the FT banner, too! Unf!

    Offside by Savage7289 is more than just Edward playing soccer in high school. It’s not what I thought it was going to be. It was BETTER. Savage writes EPOV like no one else. I shouldn’t have been surprised by her amazing UST skills, but it still did, and owned me the whole time. 🙂

      GAH! I was so upset with myself for not getting to Offside before this post. I’m dying to read it I’ve just hit some sort of mental block with fic. This happens a couple times a year it seems. I need a little break from it. Inconvenient when I’m posting weekly. *sad trombone sound* lol
