"His agony defines him. His memories destroy him.

But his hope is what sustains him, feeds him, encourages him. It's his purpose. And he doesn't deny it.

Offered the chance to leave all pain and misery behind, Edward knew that it was better to suffer his loss than to forget it. For in having it, Bella remains his and only his.

To forget would be the ultimate betrayal, abandoning her once again to a world of lonliness and despair. He had already done that once upon a time, and he did so spectacularly.

He'll find her. He has to.

Left in the woods, an unfortunate run-in with Laurant and 45 years later - Bella finds herself facing everything she has ever wanted.  Does it want her back?  What will she discover about how Edward has been spending his time...

Everlasting by SirenSongx Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 97]


If it wasn’t for Victoria, life in Forks would be perfect. But no, the stubborn red-head has to interfere with our lives, again. Talk about the camping experience from hell! 1 crazed newborn+1wolf pup+1vengful nomad+1 protective vampire boyfriend+1 frightened human = blood and death. I never thought it would be my own.

Excerpt from chapter 1: I felt the fist pierce through my chest. I looked down at the bloody appendage stretching from the wound in my chest then my eyes slowly lifted to the ruby red orbs as they beamed down at me. A wicked and ecstatic smile curled her lip.

I gazed across the clearing to the pools of honey, they were traumatized and hurt. I felt the hand retract from my chest and I fell to the ground with a thump. My eyes drifted closed and I vaguely remember the enraged growl and the sound of metal being stretched beyond its limits.

I was dying, soon I would be dead and the red-headed bitch would have succeeded in her revenge and I would never see those loving topaz eyes again.

Thump, thump…thump……thump………


A story of having your cake and eating it too.

Starts on chapter 24 of Eclipse. Alternating PoV between Bella and Edward.

Ascension of the Morning Star is a novel-length work that offers an alternative to Breaking Dawn.  The work is represented in two books, Evening Star and Morning Star.  Each book will appear as a separate story on this site.  This is Part I.

In Part I:  Evening Star, we find Bella and Edward preparing for their marriage.  From engagement to wedding night the whirlwind of 55 planning days is a roller coaster of emotion, intrigue,and surprises for everyone. Exploring sexuality & intimacy, will Edward be ready?  As the big day draws nearer, everyone realizes this is a good-bye, but not everyone realizes how true that is... 

The facets of their transition to marriage are much the same as other young couples, however, they are not like any other young couples and they face a specific set of challenges on their way to the altar.  Their journey will force the Cullen family to confront the demons of their hearts and rediscover their connection to humanity they thought to be lost forever.  Even the humans find compelling forces of change in their lives because of this one strange human. A young woman's presence has altered the destiny of those she loves.

Post Eclipse, AU, Cannon Characters and Relationships. Mature for sexual situations.

The story of Ascension of the Morning Star continues with Part II.  A major shift in tone, action, and impact from Part I.  Hang on to your hats.  It is a thunderbolt from the begining and rarely lets up.  Whereas Part I is light and laughter, Part II is darkness and tears.

When Bella's transformation is not a dream come true, the future is anything but assured, yet, one thing is clear.  By her existence, she will rock the foundations of both the human and mythical worlds.   Although there are bright signs of possibility in unexpected places, but the question is simply this:  Would you follow your destiny if you knew it would cost you your eternal life? 

What if Bella isn't the only one changed by her choice to follow her Destiny?

Canon characters and relationships explored in greater detail.  Contains family relationships, humor, mature situations, sensual exploration, action, and inference; horror, angst, hurt, gore, limited violence, loss, mystery, psychic phenomenon, and mythic/religious references.

What if Bella really had a reason to have self-esteem issues? What if Edward had a secret that no one else knew?


Oh," Jacob hesitates. "I just figured the way he acted around you the other night and how you were going to his party that maybe you guys were..." He trails off.

"Well, no." I clarify. "We are only biology partners."

"OH! I get," he nearly shouts. "Like benefriends."

"WHAT?!" I yell, "NO!" I pull the phone away from my ear and press the TALK button to end the call.

The phone rings again.

"No Jacob! That is NOT what is going on between Edward and I, AT ALL, you perv!"

It has been four years since Edward left Bella in New Moon.  There were no werewolves and Jacob was never more than Bella's friend.  Bella has just graduated from college when Edward accidently crosses her path and finds himself being drawn back into Bella's life.  But Bella is not the same teenager he knew. She is a grown woman with a very grown up lifestyle.  This tells the story of how Edward, realizing he can't live without the love of his existence, and with the help of all of the Cullens, endeavors to win her back.  There are some laughs along the way.  The story is EPOV and rated NC-17 for sexual language and content.

Fractured Hearts by cfmom Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 2427]

We've all turned the pages on the four blank months in New Moon. Edward left Bella in the woods and told her didn't want her anymore; his arrogance expected that she would just move on with her life. What he never expected was that she wouldn't be able to move on any more than he would. An angry Bella is something he couldn't fathom. What he didn't take into account is that Bella believes that true love is worth fighting for, and she's going to fight to keep Edward and her family. The Cullen abandonment hurt her deeply, but she's turned that pain into rage. What will happen when Bella decides to let them know she's not willing to let them walk away and leave her behind? How will they handle one mere human girl that's extremely pissed off, and willing to do whatever takes to bring them back? The saying "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" has never rang more true. Bella's angry and on the warpath. Not even a clan of vampires will be able to stop her.

Fractured Hearts

"My heart may have fractured when he left me, but I adamantly refuse to let it shatter. I'm stronger than that, and I'm ready to get nasty. This is going to be a side your family has never seen out of me. I hope you're prepared, because when I'm done taking your stupid, arrogant brother down a few notches, I'm coming after you. Yes, you heard me correctly. You may be small, fast, and graceful, but I'm filled with enough rage at this point to go vampire on your pixie, ballerina ass!"  ~Bella - Chapter 2: Voicemails

Not to mention they have to talk the Quileutes into allowing an exception to the decades old treaty.

Awesome Banner by Anne Cullen!!


Edward's POV of Bella's pregnancy, burning and awakening in Breaking Dawn.  Covers all the missing moments with Edward, Bella, Renesmee and the Cullens, and everything that they went through. Starts when Edward and Bella arrive home from Isle Esme and meet the Cullens at the airport. Find out what happened after Bella ran into Rosalie's arms...  

In a fraction of a second, I was at Bella's side, the rest of my family still frozen. I put my hands on Bella's shoulders.

"Let her go, Rose," I said, my voice deadly.  She just stared back at me grimly. I searched her mind, trying to get a hold of her plans.  There was a resolve, a plan to protect the baby at all costs.  And an aching desire she couldn't hide to have that baby as her own....


Her face was so deathly still, no response.  She was unearthly pale, and there was the slightest blue tinge to her skin, the sky pale at dawn.  As I pressed my lips to hers, they were too cool.  I blew in gently twice, watching her chest rise and fall mechanically. I moved my mouth to her ear as my hands began to move again.

"Come on, Bella, love," I whispered.  "Come on, sweetheart.  I'm right here.  You did it. You've got a healthy baby. She's so beautiful. You were strong enough.  Now it's time for you to come back.  She's waiting.  I'm waiting, love.  I'm waiting for you, always...

He loved her so much, even then, that he'd tried his hardest to hold them together. Tried to talk, and when that hadn't worked, he'd tried to keep his mouth shut. To patiently bear her rebuttals and her undeserved scorn, to put up with her insults and her barely-veiled jibes, poking at his manhood, his family, his former and present life - poking holes into the fabric of his very existence until he was brought to his knees under its weight.

He'd tried. But in the end, it hadn't mattered.

She'd left anyway.
