I'm a mom, wife, writer, physician--basically a jack of all trades, master of none.


I discovered the Twilight series in January 09, during the last few weeks of a difficult pregnancy.  The Twilight series and Twilight fan fiction helped me through the subsequent death of my daughter (from trisomy 18) and is helping me through the grieving process.  I can't express my thanks enough to SM and the talented writers here for the escape, and for the inspiration to write again.  Never thought I'd write fan fiction, but it's helping me through my writer's block.


I also have my masters in creative writing, and unintentionally put my writing on hold while finishing med school and residency so I am very happy to pick it up again.  I hope to finish the novel I started writing ten years ago...

Generated image

 

"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. 

HE HAS TO."

- icrodriguez (the most beautiful review I have ever received.  THANK YOU for allowing me the honour of displaying it here.  It sums up the tone of this story beautifully, hearts, Erin)

 

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...

 

Rated for later chapters.

However, he doesn't recognize her at all.

Afraid for her job, she tells him her name is Marie. He acceptes her pseudonym, and feeling safe with anonymity, Bella reveals her wild side.

“There was no other blood like this.  Once she was gone, it would no longer be within my grasp.  But if I stopped now, she would heal.  Her body would make more.  The blood would replenish.  I could drink again.  The promise of more – it was the only incentive that could have caused me to stop.”

With Teeth by TalulaBlue Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 5906]
Summary: Feature

Edward is a 27-year-old alcoholic/addict struggling with his recovery. Bella is a 23-year-old who's moved back home after college. This fic chronicles how they meet, fall in love, and struggle with the complexities of their relationship. Not nearly as maudlin as it sounds (I hope).

Rated NC-17 for graphic (and sometimes non-romantic) sex, drug and alcohol use and abuse, profane language, and brief (very brief) suicidal ideation (although NO suicide attempts). No sexual assault, no cutting.
