Hi Lisa,

Hope you are doing fine.
I'm so happy to see you are writing again! I almost can't believe it ;-)
Your story is the best, it's great it wil be finished!

Love, Vera

Author's Response:

Thank you so, so much. I'm blown away that you haven't long forgotten about this. I want to let you know that I've finished the next chapter and submitted it to Twilighted but it appears there's not much activity on this site and I'm not sure if the validation betas are around to validate the new chapter. But I've posted to Fanfiction net, so you can read the new chapter here:

Lots of love xoxox

Hello, Lisa.  For some reason this story floated into my memory, and I just had to read the whole thing yet again.  Not quite done – I’m going slowly to make it last!


While I was going through the story and my reviews, it occurred to me that there might be a very positive reason why finishing this story isn’t at the top of your priority list.  Clearly, writing this story using these beloved characters was a powerful aid to your own recovery from this experience.  I can only imagine the comfort that would come from envisioning the support your Bella got from such a wonderful cast of characters, most of all, of course, Edward Cullen.  And of course, envisioning a world where the rapist actually gets the justice that’s coming to him.


So I was wondering, perhaps a combination of the healing that’s already happened from what you’ve written so far, plus good things happening in your own life, and even the passage of time, have made working on this story less essential than it used to be.  I hope it’s true that what you went through has receded until it’s occupying less and less of your mind and heart.  


Don’t get me wrong, I’d be thrilled to see an update!


Love, Renée

I really have no words to tell you how it feels that you haven’t long forgotten me and this story. I am deeply touched and it means more than I can express. 

Also, your timing is uncanny because I am so excited to tell you I have recently started back writing this story. Yep, you read that right. Will wonders never cease!! It feels so unbelievably good to go back to it and these characters I love. As to your thinking of why I haven’t written in years...yes and no...honestly, my writing process doesn’t have much rhythm or reason to it. But as I start back writing it, clearly none of it had ever left me...the story was always there waiting for me to go back and finish it. It just got pushed back for a multitude of reasons. In the end I think I needed the long break from writing it and that now the remaining part of the story will be all the better written for it.

Thank you again, and I can’t wait to finally complete a new chapter.

Much love,

Hi Lisa,

I really hope you find the time and the right mood to continue with this story. Your writing is great and your Edward and Bella are perfect!
Lots of love from Holland,

Hi, Lisa.  I just read over the most recent reviews - from 2016 - and I thought huh, you need a review in 2017 to remind you we're still checking on Mistaken Trust.  Rereading chapter 1, I also realized it must be time for a complete re-read!


I hope you are well and that someday soon you will come back to this incredible story.

Love,  Renée

Thank you so much for writing this. I'm new to fanfiction and this is the second twilight fan book I've read. What an amazing piece of work you did! I literally went into a slight depression when Twilight was over -I wish I'd known about this. Somehow Twilight pops into my world when I'm the most down in life. You're story amazed me in two ways. First, the way you captured the true Edward and Bella - I can never get enough of them. Second, you wrote about something I've gone through and I found myself getting emotional several times. I think it even healed me in some ways I didn't know were still broken. How Edward walked through it all helped me understand how I should've been treated and I could grieve a little more for how I wasn't. I want to write you more but I'm stuck on my little kids del and typo g on here sucks. I loved all your notes and hope you life is blessed. I don't even know if you'll get this because it looks like you no longer write the story but I just want to tell you how grateful I am that you wrote what you did. As always with Twilight, I'm devastated the story has ended, I hope if you ever update or finish this, I will somehow be notified. I don't really know how that works. Anyway, thank you again.

It's a pity this great book won't be finished. It's such a shame to waste so much hard effort and a piece of your soul because that's what it takes to write a great book.

Reviewer: Sarmomemt (Signed) · Date: January 12, 2016 10:20 PM · On: Chapter 29

Thank you for sharing this. I'm a survivor and find far to few stories on the topics of abuse, sexual assault and rape feel real, most so obviously written by someone who has no comprehension of how deep & far reaching the damage becomes. You however, have written this so well, with such power and raw emotion that it would shock me if you weren't writing from experience. I ways say that poorly written survivor fiction does a horrible disservice to everyone, obviously survivors but the stories also act as education to those who DON'T understand and stories like those make it harder for them to believe the very real struggles survivors face everyday and in every aspect of their lives. Your story is the most realistic, emotional and educational twilight survivor fanfiction I've read yet. I'm glad your covering Edwards healing as well and grateful that you explained in such detail and accuracy, what the therapist was explaining about the healing process. It's Something I've been through myself and with others but had never seen it covered in any fiction I've read let alone fanfiction. I hope that you will finish the story and that it wasn't abandoned, this is a story so powerful, raw, emotional and honest that it deserves completion and the talent you possss should be shared. Thank you, truly I'm grateful.

Just wanted you to know you still have readers in 2016! Hope RL has been kind to you, and I can't wait for an update. This story is beautiful and I keep coming back to it!

Reviewer: jeweliaa (Signed) · Date: December 21, 2015 03:39 AM · On: Chapter 1

I love this story! I came across it a while ago and just found it again. Very well written and I love the way you've interpreted the characters, their reactions and their roles throughout. 

Reviewer: jeweliaa (Signed) · Date: December 02, 2015 03:52 AM · On: Chapter 29

This is fantastic. I've been glued to it, and have found it impossible to put it down. I hope you'll consider finishing the story! The way you write Bella in the aftermath of the rape and her connection to Edward... it's amazing. 

Reviewer: renee aubin (Signed) · Date: October 22, 2015 05:29 AM · On: Chapter 29

Just a quick note to say that - sigh - although we've officially passed two years since the last update, I'm still hoping to see the finish of this story someday!  

I hope all is well in your life, Lisa, and that the right combination of time, inspiration, and writing mojo will arrive at your door soon.


Author's Response:

You are too kind. Truly. On a side note, I feel the need to tell you (and anyone who might be reading this) that for some reason Twilighted has left me unable to respond to reviews for over a year (I contacted the admin but they were unable to resolve it)- I've been periodically re-attempting to respond and was ecstatic when I found today that I could respond again. Now...

Yes, it's been years (I can't believe it!), and while I'm sure none of you believe me by now I still fully intend to go back to this story, and while it will have been an unforgivable amount of time, I believe, at least, that the story's conclusion will be the stronger for it.

I don't know when, but I hope to get back to writing MT at some point. In the meantime, thank you for listening, for caring about this story, and for letting me know that you care. It truly means more than I can express.

Hi Lisa,

Hope you are doing fine!
I know it's been a while but maybe you're still planning to finish this wonderful, great story?! I would love to see another chapter, love, love, love your writing! And this story is so sweet...

Lots of hugs, Vera

Hi there!

I just wanted to say hello and that I hope life is treating you better these days.  I remember you were having trouble finding a job/got a new job?  Being in the middle of a soon-to-be-lost job myself made me think of you once again and this story.  I haven't checked back in a while, so I was delighted to see a reply from you in February.  I don't think I'll ever stop checking for updates - really have enjoyed this story and intend to go back soon and start rereading since it looks like you've edited even more chapters.

It sounds like there's not a lot of oversight these days here on Twilighted.  I'm going to see if you are on any other site (this story) and I hope you'll look into it if you're not.  It seems update alerts are not getting to the readers in some cases.  I would be crushed if you were to update and I didn't know or missed it.

I do sincerely hope you're out conquering the field of your choice.  :)  I'll keep watching - know that we're still out here rooting for you.

Happy Summer. I still check in on this story :-)

Reviewer: Evegab1 (Signed) · Date: April 19, 2015 12:20 PM · On: Chapter 29

Have you given up on this story?


Reviewer: just a fan (Signed) · Date: April 02, 2015 07:16 PM · On: Chapter 16

What can a person say about such a  horrible action from someone whos suppose to be a best friend? But theres plenty to say about someone so loving as Edward; you've written your people so vividly. Its a hard story for me, sometimes I have to leave it and come back another day. The beating is so hard ,besides the rape.

Reviewer: just a fan (Signed) · Date: March 30, 2015 04:29 AM · On: Chapter 7

you are avery good writer. I've read lots of twilight fanfiction and even if the writers done their best, you have a flo in yours that surpasses so many. This is a very moving and emotional story......hope to see more of your work.

Believe it or not, I still have every intention of finishing this. It's just taking me forever to get there. But I will. I WILL.

I absolutly love this story! i think it is very well written, and protrays a rape victim perfectl. Bravo!

Reviewer: renee aubin (Signed) · Date: July 01, 2014 03:37 AM · On: Chapter 29

Lisa, how exciting to see that you have had your fingers on this story so recently!  Every once in a while I check to see whether you've updated the notes on the Table of Contents, and if not then I check to see if you've responded to any recent reviews.  

I'd just like to echo what others have said, that whenever you get around to publishing a new chapter, I'll be RIGHT THERE to read it!  (I'll probably also reread the whole story just to get the right context, but that's no hardship either.)

And let me just say that I'm grateful that this is your reason for being unable to finish a new chapter:

'Work has been crazy busy (though in a GOOD way - the job is fabulous) of late and I have not been able to find the good solid chunck of time needed in order to start up writing MT again and get my writing juices going.'

I remember when you were so discouraged that after all your hard work to finish your very difficult degree, for a while it seemed unlikely that you would ever find a job you loved.  So I much prefer that you're not writing because you're doing something else that you enjoy and that makes use of your intellect, knowledge, and training!  

Of course we would all prefer that you really enjoy your job AND find the time and the writing mojo to advance this wonderful story.  In the meantime, it's just nice to hear that you're still invested in telling us how things turn out for your Edward and Bella.

xoxo  Renée
