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: What We’re Reading

Happy Friday! Today we have another installment of *announcer voice* What We’re Reading! *jazz hands*

Deb: Alright, alright, alright… (I’m still in Oscar mode, apologies). Down below, Katie talks about curling up and reading during this long cold winter. For me, my brain is frozen. I can’t seem to settle to anything (this also may be to do with Mr Rob Pattinson residing and working a quick car drive away; talk about brain scrambling). I keep picking books up and putting them down, feeling a little bit annoyed a little bit frustrated that very little is grabbing me and holding on. Exhibit A:

Lots more after the jump!

FanFic Friday: Deb shines the author spotlight on…

Happy Friday! I’m so excited about today’s post.

When we decided to take turns doing author spotlights months ago I started thinking about who I wanted to feature. A name or two came to mind immediately (I may or may not have fangirl squee’d in previous posts about them) but then I went and looked at my Favourite Author list and remembered…way back when fan fic was fairly new (to me). When I was reading OOC Bella’s and Edward’s with my hand over my mouth. When I was gasping when Edward’s actually bit someone! I can remember where I was when they updated and leaving those first few gushing reviews (so embarrassing). I’m very happy to spotlight one of my favourite authors…

Big reveal…after the jump…
