Nothing gets me in the mood for Halloween, like reading some good scary stories. This is pretty great reading weather too. Cool crisp air. Leaves crunching under your feet. *happy sigh* We thought that we would share with you some of our favorite fan fics stories that fit the genre of horror or maybe just feel like Halloween to us.
O.K. me first. I was fairly new to fan fic back in 2009, and fell upon a really intense AU story that was like nothing I had read before. Jeesiechreesie’s, Masque of Red Death was a dark story that completed on Halloween.
This story is a true vampire story, where Edward is not like the original one. He is obsessive and violent in his need for Bella. The ending was disturbingly perfect too. Loved. It. But I loved vampire stories in general, before reading Twilight.
To balance out the darker side, I also want to recommend Elemental by TallulahBelle.
This story is amazingly cool. Bella returns to Forks with her parents, to find out that she has a powerful past that she can’t hide from. Edward is her true match and needs Bella’s help with the town’s future, more than they both realize. This is a story has an insane amount of UST in it, which I love. Kind of reminds me of the CW show, The Secret Circle.
I also wanted to share with you a story that was recd. on Rob Attack by Midnight Cougar, specifically for Halloween. I am in the middle of reading A Pound of Flesh right now, but want to read this before the holiday is done. Que Sera, Sera by Livie79. WIP

Since I haven’t started reading this story, I can only go by what the author says, at the end of the first chapter that is posted.
“This is a HORROR STORY! Horror encompasses: terror – dread – fright – abhorrence – fear – death… So please, before you start reading, Que Sera, Sera is a romance, angst, drama, hurt, comfort, suspense, horror, and tragedy all rolled into one intense story. For those of you who choose to continue…enjoy!”
This totally sounds like a story I will love reading!! *rubbing hands together*
Happy Halloween everyone!
I have a bizarre amount of love for Holiday one shots. Halloween, Christmas, Fourth of July, Arbor day… Bring it. (I double dog dare someone to write an Arbor Day one shot. Please tweet me if you do! LOL)
Two years ago I came across a Halloween one shot compilation by Breath-of-twilight. A new one shot from a different author was posted every day for the month of October. Every morning I looked forward to reading that day’s entry. It. Was. Awesome. It didn’t happen last year but I just found out that Breath-of-twilight has brought it back this year! EXCITE!
So check out the Countdown to Halloween II One Haunted Hallows Eve. I tried to pick out my favorites but got so caught up in reading them all again that I couldn’t choose. They cover all genres, spooky, scary, funny, fluffy, sad, etc. Also check out 2009’s compilation: Countdown to Halloween One Horny Hallow’s Eve (which I also didn’t know about) and this year’s: Countdown to Halloween 2012 Movie Spin Off Ed. I haven’t gotten to read any of these yet since I was too caught up in rereading the 2010 ones *blush* but, I’m sure they’re just as great. Don’t forget to leave the lights on! Oooooooooooooweeeeeeeeeooooooh!
P.S. She’s planning a Christmas compilation this year. I may be giddy!
I apologize to all of you Jacob fans out there…but I couldn’t resist this one. *snicker* – Gina

My first rec is Grasping Darkness by KiyaRaven.
She dreams of darkness. Lust. Passion. The man she fantasizes about has it all, especially the darkness. The problem is, he’s not really a man. Rated M for language & dark themes. (Complete with exception of the epilogue…and according to the author’s note, it’s going to be lengthy!)
Who loves the vamp fics? *raises hand* ME ME ME!! What I loved about this one is that it’s something completely different from most. It’s also a nice dark fic…and while I love fluff as much as the next girl, I also love to see how far down the rabbit hole an author can take me. You will find familiar elements…Jake is a werewolf and James is a batshit crazy vamp…but it’s quite a different from the canon Jake and James. Edward is very dark in this one, and takes being a window-stalker to a whole new level…but I love (lust?) him all the same. And lemons? *fans face* Hot, zesty lemons in this one. And for you wuss-pervs out there…this dark fic is nicely evened out with wit and humour.
My second rec for a good Halloween read is Incubus Anomaly by elusivetwilight.
Incubus: a sex demon that visits women in the deep dark of the night. Edward relies on his special gifts to consume his prey. What happens when he meets the one woman immune to his unique abilities? M for dark lemons and dark themes. Complete.
As the title and description denotes with the word “Incubus”…yes, Edward is a vampire that not only feeds, but also sexes up each of his victims. Though, victim is a harsh word considering that he delves into their unconscious minds as they sleep…fulfilling their secret fantasies and leaving them alive and unaware of his visit. Okay…very big grey area here…but really, would you object? Didn’t think so… Enter Bella, who has been broken by her douche ex…Jacob. Go fig. This Bella is different from most…she works as a production manager at a theatre, rides a motorcycle and smokes like a fiend. Edward enters her room one night, only to find that he can’t read her mind…so he cannot use his usual means to elicit a pleasurable experience from his meal. On top of that…he can’t seem to resist her, for as he learns, she is his singer.
It’s unforgivingly dark, mysterious, refreshingly different…not to mention, hot as hell. Put on your big girl panties to read this one.
