I am a 24 year old, officially declared nut-case three times over. (No I haven't actually killed or stalked anybody... I am a danger only to myself- a joke, don't freak out.) 


I love reading more than I like to write and I just don't have the time, patience, or the ability to control my sanity for time periods lasting longer than 30 minutes to really get anything down and be satisfied with it.


I work all the time- the craziest hours on the most random of days- and I live for my late-night/early-morning fanfic reading. They make me happy, they make me cry, and they are a great aid in my constant soul searching. 


Long ass reviews are my trade mark. It saves me a few pages in my journal that is almost filled cover to cover now (I've had it for 7 years, there's only about 10 pages left, I've got to stretch it). If you read those reviews, I'm pretty sure you'll learn more about me than you might care to... but, that doesn't really bother me so your welcome to it.


'Thank you' to all the wonderful authors for allowing me the chance to read and comment on these amazing stories. :)

"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.

Summary:

Correct Banner

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.

 Thanks to Mizra for the banners.

Excerpt from Chapter 3:

 

Bella spun en pointe, her hair whirling about her lithe form like a veil. A dark veil that gave tantalizing evidence of secrets hidden. She studied me through her lashes as her eyes went from dark gold to black with desire. "You did invest, buying this. Just in case you wondered."

I rose to take her into my arms, lifting her with my hands at her waist – as a dancer might his partner. "Best investment I'll likely make all year. So what else was in that mysterious package?"

Summary:

Banner by: HologramGirl

In an alternate all human universe, where society reached modern times with the equivalent to an Ancient Roman appearance and level of technology, sexual pleasure is paramount; the Cullens are a breed apart: sexual vegetarians, if you will. 

Bella is an "Innocent" and so off limits for deeper sexual grat

ification, a role she gladly embraces, taking pleasure only in giving to those around her. 

That is until she meets Edward.  Suddenly her Father's insistence

on her remaining an Innocent and Aro's desires to keep her for himself have become an unwelcome burden to her life.  How will Bella and Edward su

rvive their desire to be together when it is forbidden?

This story is a thinly disguised excuse for steamy lemons in the vein of a Roman orgy, yet there is also a deeper story about selfless giving and how love might just be worth waiting for...and fighting for.

*WARNING*  This story starts out with intense woman/woman imagery, and will depict graphic multi-partner pairings in future chapters.  DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY GRAPHIC SEXUAL CONTENT OR IF YOU ARE NOT OF LEGAL AGE TO DO SO!!!

Summary:

Emily Haines, Our Hell, Dir. Jaron Albertin

In her incoherent state after Edward leaves her in the forest, Bella's sleeping lips betray her: "Edward is a vampire and I will be one too."  Although the story opens in a mental hospital, it quickly leaves after the first chapter and never looks back...  AU/Dark:  This is not your typical AU-New-Moon story line.  The first few chapters are somewhat normal, but the story then takes a quick and hard turn into a very AU.

Bad Habit by AmeryMarie Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 443]
Summary:

Bella has a bad habit.

She's been secretly involved, and secretly in love, with her best friend's brother for years.

Will she ever admit her love for him?  Will he return it?  Or, will misunderstandings, interfering friends and betrayals help her kick the habit? 

Summary from a fan:

Quickreader says-
The things Bella desired from him were simple – love, honesty, loyalty.  Instead she took the one thing she could – a passionate, yet secret affair with the only man that would ever capture her soul.  Was that enough?  Was that truly all Edward was willing to give?  And did it matter that the one thing her best friend and his sister, Alice, asked was for them to stay apart? 

They met in high school and had an immediate connection.  Their pull toward one another was undeniable.  Fast forward five years and see that nothing has changed.  Look back at how it started and fell apart all at once. 

Can it ever be made right? 

Will they ever break their bad habits?   

This is a story that will have you laughing your ass off, panting for release and wanting to pull your hair in frustration all at once.  These characters are not perfect or simple.  Their relationship is not all sunshine and roses, but it runs deep.  They are real and will get under your skin in a way that will leave you wanting more.

Banner by the amazing TwiMom817. Thank you so much!


Excerpt from Chapter Four:

She looked up at me from behind the steering wheel, her expression poised between tenderness and curiosity.  “I keep thinking I’ll wake up, Edward.  I hope I’m not dreaming. I don’t think I could bear waking up again.”

In an instant, I was kneeling beside her, her face cupped in my palm.  The heat from her skin was a delicious sensation, the burning in my throat its inevitable price, but one I was more than willing to pay.  “You’re awake, love,” I murmured fervently, willing her to trust me though I didn’t really deserve it. I would try to earn that trust back. I had to.  “You are.  I’ll never be far from you again, if you’ll let me stay.”

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
