Tried to think of something charming and/or witty about myself, but I've got... nothing. I've never written FanFic before. I had never even heard of it until Oct, 2008, and I was a bit of a pretentious bitch when I did. I wasn't going to give it a second glance let alone read it. I was already a bit reluctant to fess up about reading the damn books (and I read them each at least ten times) because I generally tend to read literature rather than smut (that is everything that would not be considered literature). I know, I know, but I already admitted to being a pretentious bitch/book snob. rolls eyes at self
Out of desperation, I started reading and was blown away by the quality of some of the writing and the overall creativity. I have read a ridic amount of fics at this point. I wanted to write something, but my creative side had left a note that said, 'Go ahead and make an ass out of yourself. You are on your own. Your imagination and I want nothing to do with this.' and then they both bailed on me. I eventually located them at some dive bar, got them drunk and lured them home where we came up with an idea and I got to writing. I was terrified of posting, but after a shove from SendMeAnEdward, I did and... it's going better than I hoped. My fickle creativity and imagination are still ready to bolt at the first sign of trouble though.
About me, hmmmm? I am 26 years old, reluctantly, have a house and huge shop on five acres, a dog, a horse, a longtime beau and a full time job that keep me pretty busy. I live in the Pacific NW, a couple hours or three from Forks, but I'm not sure if I have ever been there. I don't drink much anymore, but when I do I go all in. I have a filthy mouth. I read a lot. Always have. I train and show my half-arabian in dressage and a few other disciplines. I occassionally accept a horse or two for training, but I don't really consider myself a horse trainer. I love movies. My faves are Napoleon Dynamite, Anchorman, Taladega Nights, anything with Will Ferrel, Office Space, The Big Lebowski, ummmm drawing a blank now. I like serious movies too, but why bore you any longer about me. I am actually pretty bored by my rambling and it's my life.
So get the hell out of here and get to readin', before you do though, check out below...

Official Description: Bella has a bad habit. She's been secretly involved, and secretly in love, w/her friends brother for yrs. Will she ever admit her love or will misunderstandings, interfering friends & betrayal help them kick the habit?
MF'er says: Ok, so my girls are in love with Rebelward (and I'm fail and haven't caught up) but somehow, through mutual love of the double wide, I was introduced to AmeryMarie and this prompted me to go check out her story. I started it and plowed through almost all of it in one day because I couldn't stop. The premise is original and intriguing starting with a college-aged Bella who is giving us memories of her high school years and subsequent meeting of the Cullen/Hale clan. Amery's chapters are long and full of incredibly descriptive characterizations that leave my mouth hanging open wide like, "dude" - Bella's inner monologue cracks my shit up like you wouldn't believe... and then there's the mysteriously fuckhot Edward who she meets, erm... well, stumbles upon? into? onto? Anyway - the UST is strong in this one and will leave you begging for more (seriously, I just begged in my last review)... Go give her some love, she deserves it. :)
RedVelvetHeaven says: Like MF said, I found this fic through my obsession for Rebelward and the insane southern style welcome AmeryMarie and the Dead Confederate ladies bestowed on me when I dove into the fun on their thread. I decided to peek into her story to see what it was all about and...OMG I'm glad I did! This is one hell-of-a story! Funny, crazy, sad, intense, but most of all amazing. I am totally loving this Bella. Seriously, she is sexy, funny, and all kinds of snarky. The tension builds and the one-liners fly when she meets Edward. OMG...Edward! MF says..."mysteriously fuckhot Edward"...I so totes agree! I am seriously loving Jasper and Emmett in here too, as they have taken Bella under their wing and look out for her. Alice is her usual force to be reckoned with, but with a twist...or a 'request' is more like it! This story really will leave you begging for more and once again, just like MF, I have spent the past few days antsy and eager for the next update. I begged too, and I NEVER beg. ;) I hope you check her out and leave her some love.
