Mid-30s guy with an addiction for fan fiction presently, and a slew of unfinished writing in my file cabinet and computer that I never seem to manage to complete full stories. Plots and bits and pieces, sure, but start-to-finish stories still elude me.

Aside from that I'm always over-thinking things, have a science background but love my fiction books... and I guess I'm a twi-guy being here as much as I am lately :S (I own the series and The Host as well). Also a fan of David Eddings and Clive Cussler.

Just starting an Education degree that'll eventually send me out to Middle and Secondary schools to teach math and science (mostly biology, probably).

Oh and my friends just gave me an Edward doll from the Barbie range (he sparkles! lol they didn't realise it at the time either) My Twi-diction is kind of a running joke for them, but their nice enough about it :)

ohhhhhh this ought to be GOOD! hehe

Really enjoying the moments where Bella and Carlisle get to be a little more "couple-ish" even if they're not quite there yet.

oh geeze! minor crisis averted though it seems more is in the making ;)

Author's Response:

Soon we should be able to put crises behind us and have some more run-of-the-mill teenager chapters.  Bella deserves a little less heavy drama in her life for awhile.  Just not yet...

hehehe I couldn't resist saying "Gotcha!" at the screen as I was reading Bella's awkward but revealing conversation with Carlisle :)

Looking forward to seeing where things go now that they're both aware and able to be more open with each other.

Author's Response:

I'm glad to have finally gotten past that point myself.  Though it has been fun so far.  :)

lhmm some very intense moments there :P but at the same time they felt necessary for Bella's ongoing inclusion into the family. The Cullens all have some darkness in their pasts beyond what they've become, andd that they've overcome with mixed success.
but just whom has grabbed Bella? talk about leaving a cliffie given the content of the chapter!

Author's Response:

Absolutely necessary - and not the easiest thing to write.

I'm awful, aren't I? Definitely my biggest cliffhanger so far - but I think that there'll be an even bigger one in the future...

Thanks for continuing to read!

milestones achieved there for Bella and a few members of the Cullens as well :)

I wonder if Charlie was within earshot, or just followed to the carpark though?

Author's Response:

Thanks. :)  So many character moments happening turned it into a very talk-heavy chapter.

The cruiser pulled away once Bella was inside of the hospital.  Charlie never walked in.

awww as muc as I enjoyed Carlisle's time with Bella, I was hit hardest by Charlie's sadness (my own perception?) :P
hopefully that doesn't happen very often?

Awww significant decisions being made all around there!

Carlisle and Bella both realising they want more from each other but not quite getting around to talking it out. But most importantly, Rose and Bella's conversation/argument leading to Rose's epiphany of sorts it seems! :)

Author's Response:

Glad you liked it.  It was a pretty packed chapter, one that obviously kept me busy for awhile.  I'm surprised after all that, it ended up being so short!

Just been catching up on the reading,  and what a tale so far. I was kind of hoping that Carmen had made it to Denali for real, and now I'm just hoping that Eleazar realises something is truly wrong before it's too late. Looks like the wedding will be very interesting to say the least :)









Author's Response:

Hello Daniel!  Thank you so much for catching up and enjoying the ride! I'm sending in the next chapter for validation today so hopefully it will be up this week!  I really enjoyed writing the wedding. My beloved partner and I are not married, so it was a pretty fun and amazing exercise to go over the top and dream big for Bella's. I hope you enjoy the following chapters!

Kind regards,

Man oh man, the visuals running through my head for this chapter would need the combined efforts of ILM and WETA to match the words :)I wonder if Benji & Source could work out a time-share arrangement with Bella & Edward? Heh. It's been a long week  :)



Author's Response:

Daniel, you sure do know how to make a writer blush with a gushing onset of pride. I will sheepishly admitting to looking up the meanings for ILM and WETA and being beside myself with gratitude for such a compliment!  One thing I really strive for is that visualization in my writing.  It is one of the most important ingredients of Magic as well, so to know I hit the mark set off sparks in my heart! THANK YOU!  

I hear you on the long week. My kids are home for the long weekend, but I'm back to writing on Tuesday.  Hopefully if I can get these last few chapters finish we won't need to arrange a time share for Edward and Bella with Benji and Hathor. ;)

Have a super Sunday!

I feel like Wadjet and Emmett kind of stole the scene there. Could be an interesting friendship if they had the time :)

Author's Response:

I did not plan on Em taking such a shine to Wadjet - it just sorta happened on its own, and I thought "Yeah, it works!"  I'm so glad you enjoyed it.  I wasn't sure at the time, but I'm glad I left it in. Bless you for mentioning it.! 

Thank you so much for your reviews Daniel.  Two chapters left!

It's great to see Eleazar get through this chapter but I can't help feeling devastated in advance for him... unless the combination of his super charge and Bella's can do something awesome in the end :)

Author's Response:

Eleazar will be tested to his very core when he makes it to the wedding. I had the "after battle jitters" for hours after I wrote the battle scene for Chapter 19.  It should be posted very soon and is in the queue to be validated.  Thank you SO VERY MUCH Daylen for coming back and supporting Ashes.  I apologize for taking so long with the writing of it, but I'm on the path to finish!

Kind Regards,

hahahah no idea what Bella's sprayed Edward with, hopefully nothing "too" bad... but I'm sure it's going to get her into trouble anyways :P

I'm thinking it's not a good idea for Bella to give Edward that letter right now? Might make things even worse... although, not knowing the contents... it might make things better... but then, it wouldn't be the dramedy it appears to be aiming for right now? :)

Looking forward to seeing how Bella gets herself out of this mess.

Author's Response:

I FINALLY finished chapter 6. HURRAH! I can’t wait for you to read it. I just gave it to my traditional beta happymess last night. I should be getting it back from her any minute and will then submit it to my Twilighted validation beta. Then it's allll yours. YAAAY!. I’m dying to hear what you think of it. This story is so fun to write and the fact that you took the time out of your day to let me know you’re having fun reading it means so much... YOU ROCK!!! :-) 





Bella Swan had led a very ordinary life.  She'd married her college boyfriend only to be betrayed when he left her for another girl.  After the death of her father, she pulled out a map and threw a dart.  The implications of that one simple act would send her life in a direction that would surprise her beyond belief.  She found a home...she found a job...could she find love again after surviving a cheating husband?  Only time will tell...What secrets will the beautiful stranger she meets have and how will she deal with them?

AU/AH...Canon Couples...with a twist.  NC-17 for smut, dirty language, a smattering of BDSM, and the usual lemons. 

Stephanie Meyer owns all things Twilight.  I like to put them into awkward positions and see what happens.  Take the ride?

Just a little bit ticked at Edward's behaviour on the wedding night, really hard to see how he could do that... getting all you ever dreamed should really make you greatful :S

They sorted it out at least :)

err Edward had more than one slip of the tongue in that chapter... though I'm pretty sure some of those were deliberate ;)

Bella certainly enjoyed the first ones, I'm sure she's not going to be too upset about the accidental one :)

Date: September 02, 2010 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7 - Revelation No.Two (It's a Biggie) (Pt. 1)

oook "we need to talk" is right up there with "let's just be friends" or "it's not you, it's me" as most feared cringe-inducing phrases for me hehe

I'll admit to having a slight concern whilst reading the chapter about the possible BDSM direction, but by the end of it, I was seeing it as B&E just exploring the sidelines perhaps. Edward's line about it being something that he has moved into and out of with relative ease, that it's not a "lifestyle choice", is what leads me to believe it's just an element of the story and isn't going to be a... huge deal... if that makes sense. My own suspicions are that there's going to be some people from Edward's time amongst that community popping up here and there and causing some mischief perhaps, B&E will explore a few things for themselves, but ultimately they'll not be particularly attached to the style.

Now that that's out of my head, I did enjoy Bella's modifications of Edward's demands ;) It's good that both of them are so able at taunting the other :)

Now that they've said their "I love you's", I wonder how soon things like moving in might happen... oh, and I'm guessing it's a certain ex at the door of Bella's appartment, but we'll see :)
