What I wouldn't give to see Edward in the sun ... sigh.

Well, there goes the Volturi idea ... so needless to say I'm surprise about the fact he wasn't held by some vampire version of the science guy.

This remains one of my absolute favorite fics out there right now. I always bounce a little when I see the update. This time, I couldn't wait until I left work to read it, so I cheated and took a little 'break'. I'm just that addicted.

Thank you, again, for the ray of sparkly sunshine!

Ok, I reviewed last night, but then thought about your story every time I woke up.  Seriously, I've read this chapter four times already.  Things I'm thinking about:

I'm hopeful that since Edward hadn't ever seen other vampires, that perhaps that means no other vamps were subject to experimentation.  I was wondering how you might deal with that situation; would they go and try and free all the other vamps, and then have any number of them roaming around and feeding?  That seemed like a disaster.  And while I hate the idea of Edward being the sole guinea pig, I'mso excited to learn what his experience was like.

I keep thinking it was the wolves who tortured him, but who changed him?

Did he know he was a vampire?  Does he even know what he can do?  I can't remember the plot of Dracula, but is he learning something...dangerous?... from it?  Does he truly understand that he could easily hurt Bella?

I love how strong their feelings are for each other, but it seems as if it's built upon the stress of his rescue/salvation, rather than on true knowledge of each other.  (At least on Bella's part.  She knows so little about him.  She feels empathy for him and protective, but that's not love.)  Sometimes she's acting selfish in regards to him.  I screamed at my computer in the last chapter when he started telling her that he didn't remember his parents, but she didn't jump at the chance to hear him out because she wanted to sleep?!  Argh. 

What will the weekend bring?  Will there be a moment of jealousy when Edward catches someone's memory of Bella dancing with Mike?  Will it be the catalyst to open him up more?  Will she find a way to stay at the mansion and have a party of two with Edward?

It seems to me that it will take SO FREAKING LONG for him to become well adjusted enough to have a healthy relationship with her or anyone else.  After 90 years of incarceration, presumably he'll want to explore the world; he'll need to develop relationships with each Cullen; he'll change and grow (I see this freedom as one of those events that profoundly changes a vampire).  And where will that leave her?  I'm not sure she can be that understanding.  Compassionate, yes, but understandably she doesn't want him to go.  [And when I think about the time that will pass and the plot development necessary, I squee inside at the thought that you might have a SUPER LONG story in mind!  Oh to be lost in this world for months...years! Ha.]

Ok, I think that's all.  Maybe this brain dump will help me concentrate on work today...but I doubt it.  I can't WAIT for the next update!

*gasps* Cruel humans?!

Reviewer: KRo (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 02:48 PM · On: The River

The mystery deepens!  I bet it was those stupid wolves that had him.  Doing experiments on him and crap!  Can't wait to see what happens next!

I am DYING to know what Bella said in her sleep. DYING. Also, I totally thought this whole time he was held by vampires. Super curious.

Reviewer: Vaderian (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 02:30 PM · On: The River

It reminds me a little of the second X-men movie with Striker and what he did to the mutants but somehow it doesn't surprise me at all that Edward's tormentors were human. Evil transcends species after all. It is so beautiful to rediscover the world with Edward. I doubt he has seen the outside of his cage and with so little memories of his human life left he is virtually a newborn.

I can understand Carlisle's apprehension and worry for Bella but I believe that his enormous compassion for a soul so tortured as Edward's will overcome it. The two always had a special bond as Edward is his first son and they are in ways similar I think. Hopefully they can build a friendship even without those circumstances now.  The new chapters are as enthralling and well-written as usual and Edward and Bella's interactions as beautifully depicted as always. Absolutely one of my all-time favourites.

Please please please update! I am dying to know what did this to him!!!!!!!


Reviewer: sameasher (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 02:22 PM · On: The River

I get way too happy everytime he says anything! I loved your take on the 'meadow' scene.

I didn't think it would be vampires, but I'm not ruling out that vampires might somehow be involved. I think whoever turned him might be working for whoever locked him up. My theory is that this might be like the intitive from season 4 of BtVS - humans. Humans who work for vampires? I guess there's a possibility it's werewolves, but I really hope not.

Thanks for being really good about updating :)

Reviewer: PMA215 (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 02:02 PM · On: The River

Thanks for the update! the story is still amazing and beautiful, can't wait to know what happens next!


I always thought that those who imprisoned Edward were humans, in the know of vampires' secret existence, experimenting and trying to "reverse" vampire's nature. And I'm pretty sure that they used computers in their labs, that's why Edward was so afraid when he saw Bella's laptop, not just because he's never seen modern technology.


Poor baby, it's gonna take him a loooong time before he can be a "normal" vampire...

Reviewer: Cathy (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 02:01 PM · On: The River

Wow ! now I'm really astonished ! Who would held him captive then for a hundert years? Werewolves maybe ? I don't really have a clue ! I'm really curious now that was a mean cliffie!

Well I'm looking forward to the next chapter and hope that Edward will speak a lot more especially a bit more about what had happened to him!

Yours, Cathy

OH MY GOD!!!! wow ur awesome

wow ur a brilliant author


Reviewer: Natalie (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 01:23 PM · On: The River


I've just burned through this entire thing in one go, apart from the ole' eyes being a bit fuzzy, I'm so glad I found it!

So interesting that you've taken this odd Canon-esque approach but flipped it so Edward wasn't who brought Bella to the Cullens. I did predict it would be Edward as Mystery!Vamp but that doesn't really matter in terms of the plot.

Charlie is a patient man, isn't he? I feel like giving him a pat on the back and reassuring him. Or maybe sending him anonymous notes that read, "ARE YOU INSANE? SHES SLEEPING WITH A VAMPIRE YOU DORK!!" Haha.

Sounds maybe a bit strange but I'd be interested to know how he knew he was a vampire, for sure, if he'd never hung out with one. I guess he was told by the people/aliens/Jacobs that had him caged. Although the bloodlust is probably a big clue. Hmmm.

Anyways, good work. I'm intruigued.

HOly Moley Bartoly!! No freaking wonder he is terrified of the Cullens! Shit! Now you must update quickly! I can't take the suspense any longer!!

Reviewer: maddaq (Signed) · Date: May 06, 2009 12:58 PM · On: The River

i can't imagine a vampire keeping another vampire locked up.  but how could a human do it?  maybe it was aliens. 

i'm so happy that she took him outside, he needed it.  I love how he is facsinated by everything, and it is all new to him. 

great chapter, great story!
