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 :)

I didn't really expect Alice to get kicked out, but Edward's entry was at least well-timed and received. I think Bella will understand the need for the delay even if she doesn't like it. I'm sure that they'll be able to make up for it :)

Thank you. :)

Good to see Charlie able to get his hugs finally :) Thpugh it was funny to see Jake ask for more. Could almost hear a rib crack as the scene played out in my head :)



Author's Response:

Yeah. I couldn't help but write them both in! :) Thank you!

Almost a relaxing chapter after all the stress of the outside world :) even with the mysteries of what's going on and Maxward.

After reading the whole chapter waiting for the other shoe to drop, I had to chuckle at Max's eventual reappearance :)

Something bigger is obviously out there, though for now it's good to see them meet. Always enjoy a feisty and determined Bella :)

I think Renee is just starting to get the first shocks of reality now. For all the risk to our favorite people, it'll be interesting to see her "wake up"

Body farming the survivors.  Close call indeed for Bella, but I'm glad she's pushing Ed/Max harder for answers.

It might have been overly pessimistic of me, but I almost expected the fun at the beach to get interrupted.  Glad that it didn't though, I think they both needed that :)

Post-eclipse. Everything is thrown into disarray with the disappearance of Isabella Swan, mere weeks before the wedding. With Vampires, Werewolves and humans to blame, no one thinks to turn their attention to the more sinister monsters lurking just off shore. As Bella is thrown head-first into a frightening new world, Edward and Jacob must put their differences aside and work together in order to save the girl they both love. In the end only one question matters: Will they be able to save her in time, or is it already too late?  BPOV – mostly.  BxE HEA

Most fun chapter so far :) quite enjoyed Edward getting kicked out of the bathroom over and over until they realised Bella sort of needed him there - and he knew/understood what Bella was needing each time :)



Author's Response:

Great! Glad you liked it. Happy Christmas :)

Date: October 08, 2014 Title: Chapter 14: Chapter 14 - Opportunity Calls

Ohhh we're so close :) though Riana's reactions make me think there's "sea change" coming for the merfolk. If they really were to be inherently cruel when Turned, I wouldn't have expected such a sympathetic response from her to Bella. Bella herself is almost always a different case with her sensitivities to blood and acceptance of "other worlds" even while human. Looking forward to the eventual responses of the Cullens to the "new" Bella :) I think Emmett will likely have some choice things to say. Jake too, for that matter :)

 



Author's Response:

Thanks for the review. That's true about Riana, I try to explain why later. New update soon :)

Poor Edward - still wants his Insider Info on Bella's thoughts.

He can't help himself, lol. Thanks for the reivew. :)

Awesome! Gio's found his way :) as for names... could always use one of the multitude shades of blue or green given the ocean. Or Gemma - gems are sparkly and possibly attractive to the mermaids? :)



Author's Response:

Good ideas! Thank you. I've added Gemma to the hat. :)

Wow, current total is 45 names!

Argh so close to getting a message out. Guess it's still going to be a while.

As much as I'm concerned about what happens from this point, I know Balthazar's story needs closing out. I just don't look forward to the possible pain & separation that comes with it. The nice home respite was good to have at least, now it'll be time to address the fallout of the battle and the decisions made that lead to it.



Author's Response:

Hmm, very good points. Thanks for the review. :)
