I'm a 32 year old mom of two adorable kids who keep me wildly busy. I'm also wife to a wonderful husband who shakes his head with a smile at my "crazy vampire obsession." In my spare time I teach middle school art.


Music - I'm about as eclectic as they come. I desperately love Ben Folds live album as well as the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. My iPod contains everything from Bel Biv Devoe to Laurie Berkner to Beastie Boys to Foo Fighters and even a little Kellie Clarkson and Carrie Underwood for added spice.


I just finished reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult which I enjoyed immensely (much to my surprise because I'm not a huge fan of her books) and I have just recently started The Far Sweet Thing by Libba Bray. As of this moment my favorite fanfics are Dear Diary by Alice Laughed, Foundations by Ferrin Landry, Boycotts and Barflies by vjgm, and The Road Less Traveled and The Road Not Taken by Daintress. But that's sure to change frequently.


What do I do with myself when I'm not buried in school work or diapers or in graduate classes or cooking dinner? I love to draw. It's my ultimate release. I've started a bit of fan art but shamefully have yet to finish it. Jewelry design is also a great passion of mine, though I admit lately this has been sliding away from me. I dabble here and there in fan-fiction though I profess I haven't written much. I read - just about anything. Cooking is a great source of pleasure for me so when time allows I like to experiment in the kitchen. I'm also a closet video game junkie though this side of my nature seems to be waning lately.

Updated November, 2009

This story is now COMPLETE!

Dark Side of the Moon is my version of New Moon from Edward’s point of view.  Witness how Edward agonized over leaving Bella, hunted for Victoria, faced the Volturi, and came to realize that with Bella was where he was meant to be. 

This tormented story has been a part of my life for about a year and a half – and what a ride it’s been!  Meant to be canon and in character, I hope you enjoy angsty Edward and his suffering during New Moon.  As unhappy as Bella was during this time, Edward suffered so much more (I think).  So be sure and crack open a fresh box of tissues before reading!

 Thank you to everyone for all the reviews, especially to those of you who reviewed each and every chapter!  Your support and loyalty have been the driving force to me getting this project finished – and I hope it’s lived up to all of your expectations.

Love you all,

blondieakarobin

PS.  As one last thank you, I’ve posted a formatted, printable copy of Dark Side of the Moon at http://bit.ly/2vLHMi, as will also post as an electronic version suitable for viewing on a kindle or MobiReader.  I’m also posting a ‘Director’s Cut’ that includes citations of all of Bella’s quotes from Twilight, research notes, and even funny comments from my betas in this version in the same directory.

Special Update:

For personal reasons (a ridiculously full teaching schedule and being recently put in charge of a bi-annual local conference and ongoing project), I am no longer able to reply to reviews and questions. But that said, I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to EVERYBODY for the wonderful feedback and kind words that have been sent my way since the completion of this story in August 2009. I do still check my messages about once every 1-2 weeks and read *every* review. I just have too many to reply to anymore, but I didn’t want anyone to think I was ignoring her/him in particular, or didn’t appreciate readers taking time to leave a review. Writing this story was tons of fun and I’m thrilled readers seem to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the chance to write it. I can’t tell you how flattering that is!!! As I used to reply to all reviews, I feel a little badly about this decision, but work has been requiring virtually all of my time since the new (academic) year began.

Best to all of you in 2010 and beyond!

Summary: Feature

It was said of early vampire books and movies that vampirism was simply a poorly disguised substitute for sex. Back in the day, the entire genre was considered extremely risque'. With that in mind, this is a parody of Midnight Sun replacing all the vampirism with sexuality - no blood lust - just extreme human lust. AH/AU and consequently, OOC.  Thank you to Debussy_This for the fabulous (and hysterical) banner!!!
