Fan Fic Friday: Annie’s Beardwardo Adventures

Hey there y’all! Katiebird and Michelle are busy and have left me here to run amok things. Really, they should know better by now. Of course I have pounced on the opportunity to pretty up the place. I grabbed my bae (I’m down with the kids, yo), Debb, to help me. Yay!

 Welcome to the Wonderful World of Beardy Edward

(Pretend that was sparkly too, ok?)

My love for Edward is pure and true. My love for beards is dirty and lusty. Perfect combo, right? Beards are just plain manly. Picture your beloved Edward with a nice, thick, soft beard, evidence of his masculinity.  UNF. Now imagine how that nice, thick, soft beard would feel on your skin. Now you get the idea. [Debb: LoofahEdward… *eyes glaze over*]

I have gathered for you, with the help of my twitter friends, several stories with beardy Edwards. I found that some of my favorites have been pulled. *Aro voice* This is a sadness. However there are still some sexy, manly beardy Edwards out there.

Lots more, and no razors allowed, after the jump!

Fan Fic Friday: Dude, Where’s My Fic?

Hiya! Happy Friday! Today we’re introducing a new feature inspired by YOU, our Fan Fic Friday readers. We get great comments from you; you share what you’ve been reading, you comment on our posts, and ask questions about fics past and present. Recently, there have been a number of questions that go something like this:

“I love ‘That Fic That Everyone Loved” but can’t find it anymore! What happened? Help!!”

Fics disappear for a number of reasons: authors leave the fandom, or take down their stories for personal reasons or to rework them. Often though, fics have been taken down because the author is publishing them. So many of the stories you love are out there waiting for you, edited, buffed up and ready to sit proudly on your bookshelf! 🙂 I thought it would be fun to share two of my (many)favourite fic-to-book titles and then tell you which fic I think would make a great published book. Ready? Let’s go.

My picks after the jump!

Fan Fic Friday: ‘Legendary’, ‘Cake’ and Annie’s Contest Round-Up

  Happy Friday Fic Lovers!

This week, in a fit of “what do I want to read?” I reached way way back on my to-read list. Then I smacked myself upside the head because HOW IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND STOLI DID I MANAGE TO NOT READ THIS SOONER? It was perfect for my mood; sweet and saucy, swoony and mysterious, funny and eye-popping. It’s also written by the author of one of my favourite fics ever…I’m so glad I finally read…

All the goodies, after the jump!

FanFic Friday: Young Pilgrims, Malice and Hockeywards Galore

Happy Friday Fic lovers! Michelle and I have a few stories to share with you so let’s get right to it. I’m up first with a stunning short story.

Young Pilgrims by ineedyoursway

No banner but I pictured Edward a lil like this... *weeps*

No banner but I pictured Edward a lil like this… *weeps*

Author summary: Bella lives a life without passion. Passion is the only thing Edward has.

Young Pilgrims is an AH complete short story told in a poetic style from Bella’s POV. I found this older gem while fic diving; it was one of those cases of “I’ll just check out the first chapter” and then looking up hours later and feeling like you’ve seen a really good movie. I could not stop reading. I loved the style, the intensity, the quiet, sarcastic humour and the angsty mystery of figuring out who this Edward was.

Read lots more after the jump!
