Hi! I'm Arizona. I'm 30, married to my flipping awesome husband of 8 years, and ummm...and surprisingly inarticulate sometimes for someone who can't seem to stop talking.  It's a curse.

One of the reasons I love Twilight is that it is such a picture of how we all have the same basic nature (like vampires, right?), but we can make a choice about who we will be and how we'll live. Some of us eat people, and some of us don't. *smirk* It's a deep metaphor, I promise. I have it all *points to head* right here.

Enough with being deep. I like to laugh and be ridiculous. I like to sing and write and take pictures.

And I have two cats: Spark Plug (who my mechanic husband named) and Emma.

Oh...and a couple of twi-fic related items:


I hate Alice.


I love Carlisle (almost better than Edward, even).


...and I'm AzHale on Twitter.


Oh! btw...I'm pulling my multichap fics. I know hardly any of you will care, but it bothers me that they've been on hiatus so long. I'm focusing all my creative energy on A Heart of Flesh. Once I've got that under my belt, I'm start posting here again.


Sorry. :/

Not everything makes sense to us at first, but sometimes, the paradoxes in life are exactly what we never knew we needed. When Jasper and Edward and thrown together, into a dorm room no less, who are they to deny the twisted logic of fate?

Life is about to get a whole hell of a lot more interesting.

Loner by Nilla Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 9908]

Edward Cullen was a loner, an outcast. He clearly hated everybody, including himself. He was not a nice person. So, why was I so drawn to him? And why did I get the crazy feeling he felt the same way?

WARNING: This story will deal with the aftermath of child abuse and rape. If that bothers you too much, I strongly recommend that you don’t read.

What if in the beginning Edward lied to everyone about being in love with Bella? What if originally it actually was all about Bella's scent? And what would happen then if accidentally, much against his will, Edward kind of sort of fell head over heels in love with this not-so-dull human girl?

This is an AU of the Twilight Saga using an entirely different plot as to how, why, and when Edward and Bella fell in love. It offers a different explanation for what was so special about Bella Swan, why Edward vigilantly enforced those physical boundaries, why there's tension between the Cullens and the wolves, and why Edward behaved the way he did not only with Bella but with his family. Expect romance, mystery, angst, and humor. Dark Edward.

Canon Pairings, No BxExJ, OOC.

This story is rated NC-17 because of occasional naughty language, violence (or implied violence) against humans, vampires, werewolves, animals, insects, minding-their-own-business-pajamas, entities, books, coffee tables, leather recliners, bridges, sword ferns, shrubs, rocks, and worst of all....trees. It is also rated NC-17 due to excessive snarkiness by Edward, references to underage drinking, practical jokes and/or enthusiastic tormenting of secondary characters particularly Mike Newton, Jacob Black, and Charles Swan. It also is rated NC-17 due to sexual content.

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

Bella Swan, a young registered pharmacist from New Jersey, takes a job in the Forks, WA Regional Hospital, determined to start her life over.  She meets the handsome, brooding Edward Cullen, who also works in the hospital's pharmacy...but on the night shift, of course.

Will Edward be able to control his agonizing thirst for Bella's blood? How will the emotionally wounded Bella react to her increasing attraction to him? Can Jacob be effective as a minor, if consequential, character? And most important, can Serendipitous refrain from the gratuitous use of hokey questions to attract readers?


    Huge thanks to the talented and generous Anne Cullen for the banner!


 Canon pairings; the Cullens are still vampires.  Edward's and Bella's ages are advanced to their early-mid 20s, to give them more adult sensibilities.  Other than that, the story parallels "Twilight," with some new adventures in line with the characters' ages and situations.  The chapters alternate between Edward's and Bella's POV. While it's not a *funny* version of "Twilight," there are definite sparks of humor in it.

We all believe that Edward and Bella are meant to be together...but what if there’s more to that than meets the eye?


What if there are forces at work that they don’t understand? How will they cope with events that have no discernable meaning?


This story starts out two weeks before Bella and Edward’s wedding. But, right away, things go wrong. They struggle with mishap after mishap, all the while wondering if they’re destined to be at the center of conflict and angst.


All the major characters of Twilight appear. Canon couples. Lemons in various chapters. This is a more realistic view of Edward and Bella’s relationship before the wedding. He certainly wouldn’t carry her off to a desert island alone, having never even touched her. They would have experimented a bit.


Eventually all characters get their Happily Ever After. I just drag them through hell before we get there. No characters die before their time.


And I’ve adhered to canon up until the story starts—Post Eclipse. After that, it diverges from SM’s version. Renesmee. No pregnancy.


I’ve poured my heart and soul into this story. It took me over a year to complete. I thought about it constantly. For that hard work and diligence to form, grammar and style, I’d like just one tiny thing from you, the reader.


I’d like a review. If you love it, if you hate it, if you’re just indifferent and will never look at it again, I’d like to hear that. It’s not a lot to ask. So...I’ll say thanks in advance for the wonderful reviews you’ll leave after you read each chapter!

"It was late August and we were going back to school in two weeks, so every single day had become invaluable to me. To be treasured, remembered forever, saved for a time I must leave to allow her to pick up her life as if I had never disturbed it.

But what about now? If I am truly human, that is no longer the case. I can give Bella everything she ever wants, everything she deserves. A real life, a husband... children? I have no need to leave her. I can stay and love her forever... If she’ll have me."
