Hello all you amazing fan fic readers out there!! This week Annie is going to talk about some one shot contests, and Deb has some great news about one of my favorite Rob Fan websites, Rob Attack.
As for me, I’m going to ask this question…
Does this turn you on?
Geek is the new sexy, right?
Miss Annie, you’re up…
There’s a new batch of Fanfic contests coming up. Most of them start accepting entries in February, so you have some time if you’re thinking of entering one. Contests are a great way to try out your writing wings. Check out the profiles on the links below for rules and inspiration. Otherwise, get ready to read when the entries are posted. [KB: Miss Annie, please keep us posted on when we can do that. :)]
First Time Fumbles Contest
Our contest is an anonymous TwiFic Contest about first times. That isn’t limited to a character losing their v-card, it could be the first time they did something with their significant other/a stranger/best friend, or pretty much any first time sexual act. We want to see it all. You can make it awkward, funny, sweet, etc.. We want to see your character’s first time fumbles!
[KB: I love this premise!!]
TwiFic Doctorward Contest
He’s sexy and smart! He’s handsome enough to stop your heart, and skilled enough to restart it. That’s right, we want your doctorwards! Surgeons, pediatricians, ER docs, family practice . . . The list is endless! Maybe give him some lovely long fingers, too — we won’t complain!
Seven Sins Twific Contest
Lust. Gluttony. Sloth. Wrath. Greed. Envy. Pride.
They’re deadly, but we want you to make them come alive.
Desire takes many different forms. It can guide you down a dark and dreary road. Danger can bring out both the best and worst in people. Wants and needs can consume us without any thought. Our wants and needs can lead you to sin…and sometimes those sins can be deadly.
Bad Boys of Twilight Contest
You know you want them. Every girl fantasizes about having her very own. That’s right; I’m talking about bad boys. This contest is meant for you to release your deep, dark fantasies about those down and dirty, mischievous boys. We want your Mobwards, your Criminalisles, your Troublemaker Emmetts and all in between. We want the goomahs, the hoes, the homies, the wise guys, the taggers, the thieves. Maybe a good girl who can’t help but go rogue for her man. Make them mobsters, criminals, but most of all make them Bad.
Take it away, Debb…
Hey all! I have exciting news from our fic friends over at Rob Attack
. They are moving on up and have started a whole new site!! The Fic Sisters have a new home at The International House of Fan Fic
) *Jessica voice* Great name, right? They’ll be bringing us teasers, fic recs and indie pub pimping…just a few of our favourite things 😉 Looks like they have a cool feature where readers can submit lines from the fics they’re currently reading. Great idea!
I love this, straight from their ‘About Us‘ page:
FicSisters are a group of dedicated readers of fanfiction and associated literature. Our friendship is so strong it spins across the world, netting at least three different continents – four, if you count the imaginary landmass where the sparkly vampires live. Some of us have travelled very far to meet up in Real Life, and some may have intimated to SOs that we spend so much time online because we belong to an international book club. On one such occasion, somewhere in a haze of Pinot Grigio and fond memories, the idea for an International House of FanFic arose. No pancakes are served here; only luscious mounds of fluffy fiction and endless cups of Twific tea.
The FicSister thrill comes from the pleasure we feel in finding and sharing a fabulous fic, and knowing someone else is going to be touched by it too. We thrive on knowing that we can give a little bit back to the authors who share their words, by bringing them readers who may stay with them for years to come.
The site is beautiful with a rotating banner and a gorgeous black and white layout. Sexy! Please be sure to check them out!
Author’s Summary: Turned by accident, nerdy loner Eddie faints at the sight of blood and wakes, often, at the morgue. There’s no handbook for what he’s become. When the Cullen’s discover him he needs a total vampire makeover and the OCD, hypochondria and his image of what he is all have to go. Bella is given the task of educating him. She thinks he’s a joke, but likes the glasses. E/B HEA assured. Completed.
Sooo, I kind of love guys that are geeky and intelligent. Yes, I’m a huge fan of Sherlock too, and am totally psyched about the new season starting this Sunday. *happy dance* I just love a guy that is more than just pretty. What’s different about this story is Edward becomes a vampire, but remains a geek. I know HAWT, right??
I’m soooo loving these pics of Rob…
Anyway, so Edward Mason is a totally mama’s boy who works in the reference room at the local library in Forks. He is 27 and stills lives at home. After his father dies, he subconsciously takes on the role of the house. It’s Edward and Agnes. One night, a rogue vampire breaks in their home after they had just been robbed. With his mother dying, Edward passes out at the sight of her blood. The vampire bites Edward leaving him to wake “changed” at the morgue. Carlisle takes notice, when the morgue tech is killed by Edward. It’s quite hilarious actually. LOL
Here’s the thing, Edward doesn’t want to be a vampire, nor has any idea how to be one, at least not a vegetarian one. It’s Carlisle’s family, namely Bella, who try to help Edward adjust. Being a social misfit and loner all of his life, living with this new family is very difficult. It doesn’t help that Bella, who is supposed to be helping him because she is the newest vampire in the family, is being a royal bitch to him. She hates Edward’s OCD tendencies and general “geekiness”, but also finds him attractive. She doesn’t want to be though. There is alot of push and pull with these two.
I’m a little over halfway through, I am totally loving this Edward. Especially when he realizes that Bella finds him attractive, just as much as he finds her.
Here are some other classic fan fics with geeky Edwards that I loved.
Author’s Summary: It’s important for any private investigator to maintain a good relationship with local law enforcement and it’s representatives. Therefore, I am always cooperative and polite with Chief Swan. Also, I try not to drink his daughter Bella’s blood. Complete.
Author’s Summary: It’s 4 years after Edward leaves Bella. There are no werewolves. Bella & Jake were never more than friends. Bella has grown up, graduated from College, has a boyfriend & is moving back to Seattle to attend Law School when her path crosses Edward’s. EPOV Complete.
Author’s Summary: Bella’s an intellectual free spirit and Edward is a reserved, slightly geeky med student. They have a brief, but intense encounter on Sp Brk in Miami. Can they find true love through emails? There will be lemons and laughs. Look who’s writing this! Complete.
Anybody else out there think geeky, nerdy guys are sexy??
