FanFic Friday: 2013 Top Ten Lists!

Happy final Fan Fic Friday of 2013! It’s been an amazing twelve months and we are so excited to share our lists of the fics that made our year. Grab a drink, check it out, and then share your faves of the year in the comments below!

Deb: I took a long fic break this year so I’m going with a Top Five. No particular order. 🙂

35+ fics we loved in 2013… after the jump!

Me and Mom Fall in Love with Edward by counselor I think we’ve all read it? I lost my mind over this one a la My Wounded Soldier. Read my gushy review HERE

Prism by Anna Faze Still not complete *cries* but this fic was my best friend for a few days in June. Breathtaking premise, heartbreaking Edward. Another gushy review HERE

Beneath this Sky by Bedelia Annie made me read this one and I’m so glad she did. This is on my top ten of All Time now. Read her perfect review HERE

How Bella Got her Groove Back by TheFicChick I laughed, I cried, I left a fangirly review. Oh, and there was swooning (my favourite!)This is what one shots are all about. 🙂 [KB: Me too!! I loved it.]

Heat by PrincessRachael 😦 I had to put it on my list because I loved it and I adore the author but…it’s no longer available on-line. Edward as an Alpha-wolf. Graphic lemons, gripping plot. I’m sorry it’s gone but pdf is available (with the author’s blessing 🙂 ) so let me know in comments if you’d like a copy. [UPDATE: I am no longer able to send out copies of the stories. Sorry. ~Debb]

Miss Annie’s Top Ten

believeitornot-somethingtrue

Something True by BelieveItOrNot My top pick of the year. It grabs your heart and doesn’t let go.

Beneath This Sky by Bedelia  Tied for my top pick.  I don’t do post-apocalyptic or vamp. This is both and I love it. HQ fic right here.

Rescission by GeekChic12 Is it hot in here? (Yes!)

My Sweet Variable by LifeInTheSnow Different and well done. (Debb you should read this one too.)

Me and Mom Fall in Love With Edward by Counselor. Counselor…need I say more?

Cruise by DeeDreamer A sweet, fun, funny, sexy summer romance. Perfection.

Figmentum by thimbles Unique and incredible. A really special story. Read the original review HERE.

High Maintenance by daisyandphoebe An entry in the Ho Hey Contest. Now I always think of it when I hear that song.

Learning to Live  by ileftmyscar I have a special place in my heart for online friends. [Deb: ME TOO!]

Katiebird’s Top 10 favorite fan fics for 2013

It’s that time of year again, when we look back at what we’ve been reading, and list our favorites for 2013. It’s been a great year for some fan fic authors, because my favorite stories from years past are being published. I am so proud of those authors, and wish them much success.

In the past, I’ve always struggled with my list, because of the amount of stories I was reading. This year was slightly easier, because I’ve been reading less, and have become more particular about what I decide to read in the first place.

Here is my Top 10 favorite completed stories:

Banner by Jamie Arkin

Banner by Jamie Arkin

1. Now and Then by troublefollows1017 (This was the easiest choice for me. Hands down, the BEST story I’ve read this year.) See my review here. There is even a song.
TF just recently, like a couple of weeks ago, pulled her fan fic stories, but provided a link to request PDFs, on her fanfic profile.

2. Cruise by DeeDreamerSee my review here.

3. A Hope Renewed by hopesparkles  and Dirty Little Secrets by lazykate (these stories were completed in 2011/2012, but I read them this year. I love them enough to include them in my favorites anyway) Check out the reviews here and here.

4. Grasping Darkness, Hungry Lightby kiyaraven. Check the review here.

5. Stay by fictionfreak95  Check out the review here.

6. The Other Way by honeybeemeadows Check out my first review of “slash” here. LOL

7. The Other Side of the Fence by Edward’s Eternal  Check the review here

8. The Cullen Legacy by Pattyrose  There is also a sequel to this one, Nine Months, A Cullen Legacy Short Story, that I need to read ASAP. Check the review here.

9. Glycerine by Livie79  Check out the review here.

10. A Dove’s Cry by Karenec  Check out my review here.

And finally, Michelle with her top ten(ish) stories for 2013

How are we suppose to pick just ten??? No order…..
down home

Down Home by MrsSpaceCowboy Gah!  You’ll want to clone this sweet talking, manly-man Edward.

Barefoot in Texas by planetblue Life can be just as simple as you make it.  Just remember to love well.

High Maintenance  by daisyandphoebe I just want to hug these characters and tell them it will be alright.

Accidentally in Love by Missus T Simply a sweet love story.

Belong by TheFicChick The kind of story with an Edward that melts your heart.

The Practicum by TheFicChick Silly, swoony, laugh out loud story!  Sex Education is ‘just the tip’ of this fun fic! 

The Debt by Ta Paixao Edgy Edward and Bella who must face all the past in order to find friendship and love again.

Inside Man by ooza I’m squeaking this one in since ooza gave us outtakes we really wanted in 2013. I’ll always adore,adore this Edward.  You really do want him to catch a break.

Never Said I Didn’t by purelyamuse How I love this goofy Edward.  Oh the joys of young love.

The Boy at Table Seven by LyricalKris Life for a young waitress can be pretty mundane. The highlight of Bella’s week was the lunchtime visit from the three sexy mechanics from across the street. Then one day there was a little boy at her table left alone.

Well then, that’s a lot of fic lol! How do our favourites compare with yours? Thanks so much for checking out our FanFic Friday posts over this past year! We wish you all a great New Year with lots of happy reading time. xoxoxo Katie, Deb, Annie and Michelle

    You guys have some great ones here-including my personal ‘dark horse’ favorite. ‘How Bella Got her Groove Back’ is just so wonderful. It’s short and it maybe gets overlooked in the wake of all the other fabulous stuff TheFicChick writes, but she just GETS IT ALL RIGHT with this one. I can’t fangirl enough over it. Thank you for everything you guys do.

    I know PrincessRachael gets a lot of requests for her stories, and I also saw the update saying you’re no longer at liberty to share them, but we talked a little over a year ago when she first pulled them off of FanFiction, and She offered to send me a PDF and I was terribly excited, but I never heard back from her and I didn’t want to trouble her. So if there is any way I could contact her and talk with her again, that would be fantastic. If you are able to release her information that is. I miss her work terribly. She may remember my pen name from fanfiction. It is GoLeft. my email is smileyk422@gmail.com
    Thank you
