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 :)

It's basically a retelling of Twilight, with a few twists. Edward isn't the only one who can hear thoughts. Bella can also, but like Edward there is that one exception...him. What happens when she learns their secret? And what happens when the Cullen's find out that she already knows? Written from Bellla's point of view.


Set during early 2006.

FINALLY! Secrets are out in the open, more or less! :)

The closing moments of the chapter were pretty darned funny too!

I loved Edward freaking out at Bella suggesting she return to her mother!! hehe

As for the nomads, baseball or something else... hmm... I don't see a particular problem with following the same lines, although I'm not sure how you'd handle Bella being able to "read" James & co's thoughts regarding her presence etc... I can see potential for fun playing card games or even Pictionary given there's TWO mindreaders... oh, the scene with Rosalie glaring at Bella's call in the baseball game has potential for some mind-snarkiness too lol

I don't think any of that helps, really, but that's all I can say for now :S

ohhh Edward... really not such a good move - you were supposed to be loving Bella, not trying to be like Mike :S

Loved how the family found out about Bella's mind reading - I was chuckling even before she told Emmett off! :)

Date: September 01, 2009 Title: Chapter 16: 16: Plans

lovely first date - and even without the canon storyline, it's so fatalistic of Bella to think "what could go wrong" at the end of this chapter hehe :)

I'm curious about how Edward will be able to leave at all in the next story, simply because your Bella is somewhat stronger in her opinions than the canon one, and I would struggle to see her letting Edward treat her the same way and leave her in the forest. I guess we'll see eventually how you decide to play it out :)

Author's Response:

Lol, sorry but he does leave in book 2 but no lies, no forest, no major depression (on both parts). Something else causes him to leave. Just have to wait and see right.

Date: September 26, 2009 Title: Chapter 20: 20: Visions

I'm thinking it's Renee - intransit on one of Phil's trips? But I could be wrong hehe

It's the only person that we've not seen much of that springs to mind that Bella might want to avoid just now :)

This chapter, both in the original Twilight and here, felt a bit slow but then it's really just a connecting chapter between changes in scene and action - like the old soliloquies (I think that's right?) used on stage to allow for set changes :)

Oh and of course it's the "hint" at future events with the Vision and Bella's sketchy memory hehe

Date: September 28, 2009 Title: Chapter 21: 21: Goodbyes

Oh I laughed so hard at Edward's arrival just in time at the airport - Bella's "I know these lips, I dream about these lips" was gold!

Sadly, I'm more than a little concerned that Bella doesn't seem to be taking any precautions given that she knows she's probably walking into a trap, AND that the Cullens are not without skills that would protect everyone... is she really that mistrusting of Esme or that Alice would've seen if Esme or Rose were hurt seriously enough to prevent them calling about Charlie's situation?

This was something that didn't really make sense in the original book either though.

Author's Response:

There is a reson for all confusion and it will be explain in the comming chapters.

hmm should be interesting to see how Bella deals with Edward if you're planning a New Moon abandonment in the next part of the story.

Even with the seriousness of the events in this chapter, I still found myself chuckling at the little snippets of mental thoughts sprinkled amongst the out-loud parts hehe :)

Date: October 17, 2009 Title: Chapter 25: Epilogue: Destiny

haha nice work :)

Looking forward to Full Moon. Though I'm not sure how you're going to end having Edward leave and return without using the bday or the Volturi; I guess in the latter case, we can't really have Bella's human abilities coming to their attention this soon - I doubt they would've let her leave Volterra after saving Edward if they knew she could read minds AND shield simply as a human (an extraordinary one, at that!)


Author's Response:

Well I've decided to keep the Volturi and I've worked out the details.

 Bella Swan has to leave her home, so goes to the only place she can think of where she can be accepted and live as she is; Forks. But she didn't expect to see others like herself there... with pale skin and golden eyes.

It's a cliffie, but also not really one, since I think more of a cliffie would've been if she happened to notice a barely-there driveway that would've lead to the house we all know is around the place somewhere hehehehe

But still, I want to see what happens for the next meeting with the Cullens, whether it's the family, Edward or maybe Alice, next?

whew - it's a relief to see Edward and Bella starting off with talking and paying attention to each other "properly"... gives them a comfortable base to work from and come back to when the inevitable struggles occur :)

Used to feeling lonely in a crowded room, international film star Edward Cullen meets a certain journalist that captures his attention.  Soon afterwards, she's gone ... or so he thinks.

Nice epilogue :)

B&E managing to keep the nuptials a secret for so long in such an over-analysed and obsessively-viewed society was damned impressive! Can just imagine there were hoards of women at home who fainted at that speech hehe

Good luck on your future (current) writing projects :)

so sad to see another great story winding up, but so happy to see where it's gone. Emmett not figuring out just HOW close he still was to Edward was hilarious!!

Hopefully we get Edward's "real" proposal after this??


Author's Response:

Yep, it's nearly the end - I have to say that I was quite sad when the story finished, which is why I moved straight on to another story line (also featuring cupcakes).  My stories are over at, and I've also started a vamp story as well which I'm having enormous fun with.

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing - you're absolutely lovely!

haha Angela's reaction to Edward bringing the ice cream was great! Ben either being oblivious or just natural with Edward was a nice move, and now for what happens in the evening with B&E on the couch? :)

Author's Response:

I think Angela spoke for all of us with that ice-cream delivery ... *sigh*

Thanks so much for reviewing, I'm glad you're enjoying it all so far! If you're interested in reading more, I'm up to chapter 17 over on FF.

Great to see Bella connecting so well with Rose and Em!! Emmett's so funny with his confused replies to the bbq and the pie etc hehe

Yeah I have to say that I have a soft spot for Emmett, he's great fun to write!  I'm glad you're enjoying the story so far, and of course, thanks for reading and reviewing!

arrghh whilst Edward's trying to be careful and only suffering the glitch of public rumour-mongering, Jacob's being the kind of guy that gives others a bad name - getting Bella drunk? seriously?

I'm already cringing at the damage that's coming up in the next few chapters :S

Author's Response:

Heh heh heh ...

Well bear in mind that Edward is used to that kind of thing and Bella doesn't have a clue.  Having said that, she's not really emotionally involved with Jacob.  Still, it all remains to be seen how they go with it all.

The next chapter will be up for you soon ... 

thanks for reading and reviewing - you're wonderful!

Oh that's such a relief to see B&E talk things out BEFORE they became larger than they were.

I'm very disappointed in Jacob in his attempt to take advantage of anyone, let alone Bella, in an inebriated state - that's what gives so many guys a bad name! :S

Author's Response:

Hi Daylen

That's why I made my characters a little bit older, so that they would actually communicate with each other. I'm really not one for those scenes where there's a massive failure to communicate and then one of them storms off outside.  You know, daytime television type stuff - I just can't do it!

If you're interested at all, I've got a couple of other stories going over at - if you like cupcakes I know you'll like Take The Cake!

It seems the real pain and anguish is only just beginning now that the papz have "noticed" Bella :S

Well I'm not a huge one for melodrama so there won't be too much angst, but I'm glad you're enjoying the storyline so far!
