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*

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.

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…

FanFic Friday: Our Favourite ‘Bossman’ Edwards

It’s time for one of our “Favorite Edward” posts! This time we want to share with you some of our favorite Edwards who are the boss. Vampire, 109 year old, but stuck at 17, Edward is great, but there are some really amazing AH Edwards who actually work for a living, right?

 I can safely say, I would NEVER be late for work, if my boss looked like this.  Man, the things I would do, to get on his “good side”…

FanFic Friday: WIP Madness

The Heir and the Spare by sleepyvalentina

Summary: My 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.

This WIP was rec’d in the comments a few weeks ago by theo8. Talk about life imitating art. Prince Harry’s recent, um, exposure in the press made me think of this story quite a few times. Not that Prince Edward had a naked party in Vegas, but he is the second born prince, has the rep of a playboy, and gets treated similarly by the British press. In reality, well, in the fic reality, Edward does not live up to his reputation. He also has some kind of secret with Bella’s sister who is engaged to his older brother. This story is very funny and makes me smile. Bella is so baffled by her attraction to Edward.
Edward just has no idea at all how to have an actual relationship. I don’t know how they are ever going to figure things out but I have a feeling they will.

FanFic Friday: Annie and I are Vamping it up! Our favourite Vamp Works in Progress

Happy Day-Before-the-Weekend and welcome back to FanFic Friday! *throws blood-red confetti and dims the lights* Today… we’re talking vamp fic. Darkwards… *shiver*

I hear the same story from fic readers over and over. They read Twilight, devoured the series, discovered Midnight Sun online, reread the series, looked around at their Edward-less world and cried, “I honestly don’t know how to live without him! What now?”

Twilight Fan Fiction, that’s what.

Many of us simply weren’t ready to leave the Twilight world and turned to “extension” stories like Lolashoes’ “Let Your Light Shine” or Laura Cullen’s “The List”. I know I did. These stories also bridged the gap for women who were left not “fully satisfied” by the Young Adult version of Bella and Edward’s relationship.

Once in the fic world, the sky’s the limit. There are all human stories, cross-overs, non canon pairings… just about anything down to and including Hucows (don’t ask – actually ask if you’re curious, lol) and tentacle porn (don’t ask – for real this time).

Yet, some of us *side eyes Annie* return to Vamp fiction. For me, Edward is the reason I love Twilight and vamp fan fic let’s me relive that initial feeling. I also love all the “different” Edwards. What if he drinks blood? What if he doesn’t live with the Cullens? Most authors retain the things we love most about Edward; his intelligence, his passion, his beauty, his struggle to control himself (or not as the case may be). Vampward is all about the danger fantasy. Will he kill her? Will he change her? Will he break her during sexy time? 😉
