Fan Fiction Friday: October post

I am so excited that Michelle is back! She’s got some great WIPs and Completed stories to read for this month!!


October? When the heck did that happen? Guess it’s time to read some AU fics to get in the mood for Halloween. I’m sure we’ll do a SPOOK-tacular post later this month. Trying to keep up with time flying by is like trying to keep up with all the great fics around here. The next thing you know, we’ll be doing a Mistletoe post. Yikes!

I was fic diving and about to do a reread of one story (TB&TC again), when I came across New Girl by LyricalKris. I’m always the last to know! This particular story is a collaboration with the talented EveryDayBella.

Author Summary: Living with three guys was never going to be without drama. Jasper and Emmett were easy, but Edward was a little harder to enjoy. Bella guessed he was hiding a secret behind that abrasive exterior, but then again, so was she. A collab with EveryDayBella.

I love a brooding Edward. But this Edward has some past issues that really do weigh on his mind. I’m sure they’ll work it out. It’s almost complete!!

Author’s Summary: Bella is a little lost while trying to make a new life in the Big Apple. Edward is a Manhattan police officer who knows it to the core. They meet at court. Will this new romance be a slam-dunk?

And I’m super happy about Boxing Out by MeilleurCafe being complete!! Such a great story! I love, love the slow and steady pace of this story.


Speaking of stories we love, we all have those fics where we’re saying a little prayer for an update. ((Yes, twitter and FB has that magical thread to the Update-Powers-That-Be)) Someone even put her cat up to begging for an update!

Number one in my PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE UPDATE file is How to Paint a House by Maggie’s Gutter. I miss this STOP EVERYTHING for an update fic.

Author’s Summary: Bella Swan is a naive fifteen year old, set to spend another kiss-less summer alone. Edward is new to town, and doesn’t know a soul. Watch an unlikely friendship blossom over the simple task of painting a house. But for these two, nothing is simple.

I must have gone through a box of tissues while reading this teen angst!! But it’s got to be said: HtPaH has one of the BEST Charlie’s out there in the fic world.

Number two is current news relevant. With Price William and his lovely bride Kate expecting their “spare”, I’d love an update for The Heir and the Spare by sleepyvalentina. Oh the love I have for this foot-in-mouth Bella. She’s a feisty one, but the “Spare” kinda likes that about her.

Author’s SummaryMy sister keeps telling me the media is way too hard on Prince Edward—that he isn’t an arrogant, self-entitled bastard and I’d like him if I got to know him. Right. The more time I spend with His Royal Heinous, the more I want him to leave me alone. But he won’t, and since the tabloids already think I’m sleeping with him, he might as well kiss me.

It’s not everyday your new brother-in-law is a Prince. Or that you get stuck in televised wedding with EVERYONE knowing you’re second fiddle to the bride.

What are your favorite fics that you’re hoping for an update?? I say, the more you mention it, the more it might happen!!

See ya next time.

    I just started Boxing Out last night and I second your update requests. I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting on The Heir and The Spare.

    Thanks for your suggestions. As to praying for updates, can you believe I still have hope for A May to December Romance……don’t know what happened to that author, but one of the best stories ever, also Paradise Lost. Anyone out there have any insight into these?


    • katiebird says:

      OMG. I loved A May to December Romance too! So sad that she left it incomplete…:(


      • mothergolf says:

        what is the name of the book you gave the Best of the Best award to on your latest post? The picture shows the man tearing his shirt off with an Alpha tee shirt underneath……? you just posted it October 25th……

    Heads up: How to Paint a House hasn’t updated in a long time, and the author doesn’t respond to PMs (well, not mine, anyway)

    I always have a candle burning for Expectations and Other Moving Pieces and La Canzone de le Bella Cigna. I started Boxing Out way back and loved it but the updates were too slow. Excited to read it now that it’s complete.


  5. edwardsvamptramp69 says:

    I, too, always have hope that La Canzone della Bella Cigna will update. 45 chapters written and then it just stopped *sniffles*

    And AmeryMarie………if you’re reading, I always have hope that one of my favorite Edwards in the fandom in New Habits: Bad Habit, Book Two will update at some point. *sigh* I know these authors don’t owe us anything and I would never badger any of them, but since this post is here, I figured I’d just put it out there.:)

    Thanks for letting us put it out into the universe.

    My update dream would be for Me & Mr. Cullen By: Catastrophia … *sigh*.. I flove this story! The reviews are up to the 8,000’s now! 😦

    Some day I hope! 🙂
