Fan Fiction Friday: 2014 It Begins Like This…

So here we are at the beginning of 2014. Me and the girls are happy about continuing to share our favorite fan fic stories. The ones that make us feel and hold our attention. The ones that we run to read when we get an update. LOL Yeah some of us are still reading WIPs. 🙂

Anyway, I have three stores that I recently read that I loved and think are worth your time. It is how it works around here….

It Begins Like This by iambeagle

Author’s Summary:

A story about long-distance love. It begins with ‘Then’ and ends with ‘Now’. Complete

Iambeagle wanted to write a story using the Twilight Twenty-five prompts and this is her explanation.

Ready for the most confusing story ever? Okay:

So this is a multi-chapter fic. The odd chapters take place THEN; even numbers take place NOW. Maybe that wasn’t as confusing as I thought it’d be. If you have questions..Google it.

I love stories with different time periods going on, but only if it’s done right. She did this really well. Bella meets Edward on a plane heading to New York for her cousin’s wedding. She has this thing for stealing people’s aisle seats on planes, and guess who she steals from this time? LOL

We get to read about her inviting him to be her guest at the rehearsal dinner and wedding, plus she decides to experience her first one-night stand. But seriously, who would ever want JUST ONE NIGHT with Edward?!?!

The problems start when she has to go back to Seattle. The long distance wears on them both, and we get to also read about them being a part and finding their way back to each other. I love reunion stories…*happy sigh*

Dead Like You by readingmama

Author’s summary:

Twilight characters in the Dead Like Me Universe. (Don’t need a knowledge of DLM) Isabella Swan thought she could get away from the life that was planned for her. What she got was a death that would be repeated far more than she ever wanted. Saddled to follow around the one that killed her in the first place, she does her darnedest to make the most of her afterlife. Complete

I have not watched Dead Like Me, and I really loved this story. It is such a unique take on the AU aspect of Twilight.

We read about Bella’s death in the first chapter, so I not giving all that much away in telling you that. She becomes a grim reaper for a specific vampire. Not telling you who that is, and it’s not who you would think either. I know, cryptic much.

I really enjoyed the ending of this amazing story, so please check it out. I could share more, but I don’t want to give too much away. Oh, there are also chapters told from Edward’s POV, and I know we all love that!!

Copy Room by Edward’s Eternal

Author’s summary:

Sometimes flippant words are really the truth spoken out loud. What happens when someone overhears you and decides to give you what you secretly want but never knew? Complete

I so adore this story, because it’s pure fantasy, and it was what I needed to read at the time.

Bella works in an office with Edward, but they really don’t interact much. After the bad break up with Riley, who also happens to work in the office, Bella really just keeps to herself.

Her friend, Rosalie, wants Bella to get out and date more, but Bella just isn’t interested. She does however share with Roselie, that maybe she should just get laid. And it’s HOW that gets the attention of someone else in the room.

Edward is also fairly quiet and kind of a geek, and I forgot to mention, he goes by Mason in this story. It’s significant to know that.  There is a side of him that we get to see at some point in the story that is kind of sexy. The conflict is when will Mason reveal his true feelings, and will Bella be able to get past the deception?

Really hawt lemons in this one, but I would expect nothing less from this author…


One of my favorite posts in 2013 was the one I did with Debb for our favorite darker AU stories. There was a story I reviewed there called The House of Horde by raggdolly. You can check out my review here.

I was completely unaware that she has been writing this story for 4 years!! This story is now COMPLETE. So please don’t put off reading this great AU vamp story.

Happy New Year everyone!!
