I am so glad that Michelle decided to share with us what she’s been reading lately. I am such a huge fan of some of the authors she mentions, that I can’t wait to add these great WIPs on to my own TBR list.
Let’s check it out…
Last week, Annie brought you Beardward! This week to keep the trend going, I’ll give you a bit of scruff.
Sigh, you have no idea how much time I
went down that rabbit hole spent searching for that bit of scruff. But it’s my happy place and I thought I’d share. Err, back to the FanFic post.
I’ve been busy with TwiFic Fandom Awards, which end this Saturday. And, I’m getting organized to attend the New York City TwiFic Meet Up!! That’s right, after the fantastic time at TFMU in Nashville, a group of great ladies decided to organize a meet up for those surrounding the NY area. It’s so odd to see people say that the ‘fandom’ is over. Yet, Twilight fanfiction has over 200,000+ stories, and fandom friends keep meeting up to share their love of writing, reading, and meeting twitter friends. And Bookish Temptations is still here talking about stories we love! Just proves that we have so much talent in this fandom, and that many of us have made friends for life for being a part of it.
Last week, I mentioned fics I’d love to see an update from, and….BAM! (clappy hands) In my inbox was My Life as a Trophy Wife by the lovely JennaRay. It’s been awhile but the update was oh so worth it.
SUMMARY: Sometimes marriage can be more like a business agreement. Broke college student Bella and her best friend’s Lawyer brother, Edward, have come up with just that. A business agreement to make life easier for them both. First comes marriage, then comes?
This fic has a bit of it all. Cocky Edward. Bella with a backbone. A Rosalie we love to hate. Alice that acts a bit odd. And a bit of a mysterious past that Edward plays close to his chest. This one keeps you guessing. Oh, and did I mention that JennaRay can write a lemon like no other? Note: Do not read in a public place. If you don’t have this one on your list, go add it now!
SUMMARY: Bella, one week into a housesitting job, has an unexpected, late night visitor. Written using WitFits. Short. Drama and romance, of course, but also…
It’s amazing how creative Rochelle is. She’s writing this story using the prompts from WitFits. I wish I had that kind of talent!! It’s also funny to watch twitter on days that she updates. She either gets: UGH! You’re killing me. Or: Please, please UPDATE ASAP! It’s one of those stories where you just don’t know how it’ll end…but all you know is you DON’T want it to end. Trust me when I say, I’ve never read a story where firewood was an exciting turning point in a plot!
SUMMARY: I needed to figure out who Edward Cullen was before he figured out me.
Listed as ‘Romance’ on the profile, but I think it should be under ‘what the heck is going on?’..…sadly, FanFiction does not have that as a category. This one will keep you clued to the details because while Bella’s trying to figure out Edward, you’re trying just as hard. Just who is the bad guy? How wrong is wrong when it’s for a loved one? And this Edward?? How much fun is it to swoon, lust, and want to knee him in the nads all at the same time? These two have some serious trust issues, but this is NEVER a dull moment with them.
PlanetBlue has the entire story written and updates on a regular schedule, so you can easily schedule your meetings around those days. It’s just that good!!
Hope you enjoy these great fics! Let us know what you’re reading.
P.S. FanFiction has made the news once again. Seems that PopSugar has decided to list a few of their favorite fics. You can see their article here: http://www.popsugar.com/love/Best-Twilight-Fan-Fiction-35883326
