In all honesty, I knew that Jacob was better for me.

At least while I was human, anyway.

When Edward left me desolate and despairing, Jake found me.

He put me back together again. He resurrected me.

I should have been thankful. If nothing else, I should have obediently

fallen in love with him directly after, even if it was only a twisted sort

of hero worshipping love. He was my savior, my sun, my fresh air.

But Edward had always been the drug that pulled me under.

Even fresh from addiction, I can't help but be sucked in again.

One taste of Edward Cullen is never enough.


     Three years have passed since Edward left Bella broken in the woods. Edward never came back, and Bella never sought him near a fountain in a crowd in Italy. A friendship between Bella and Jacob has blossomed into something more, though not quite to the degree--at least for Bella--as what was between her and Edward. However, things have gone on and the passing of time has cemented new relationships and altered a different reality. But will everything crumble when Edward breaks his vow to stay away? A 21-year-old woman, Bella feels a lot like an 18-year-old girl when her past returns to claim her. With two super human men vying for her heart, Bella must find a way to make the decision that has apparently been put on hold the past several years--a decision that could change the fate of more than the three people involved. And that could very well be the least of her problems.

Desiderata by kimpy0464 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 648]

A special thanks to NaughtySparkle for the banner!


Edward Cullen is a well-known director for an independent film company, Masen Masterworks. He is filming his latest project in the town of Forks, Washington. Bella Swan is a baker for her best friend Alice at Alice's Wonderland Cafe and Mad Tea Party, also located in Forks. Desiderata is latin for “desired things or something that is needed, wanted.” This story is meant to represent that state of feeling for both Bella and Edward. What happens when their pig-headed stubbornness gets in the way of true love and happiness? Based upon the Desiderata of Happiness by Max Ehrmann and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Yikes!  The sad part about this type of orgn transplant is someone must die for another to live. 

Author's Response:

Very true. Few people realize that it is also the families of the donors who are the true heros in this kind of situation:)




AH AU When Edward finally gets the chance at getting the girl, he has no idea what to do, so he turns to a message board call The Red Strings of Fate.

This is a story told in e-mails, texts, and message board posts.

Immured by Viridis73 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 127]

Lone woman crying on stone steps, head in hands.  Immured by Viridis73


Immured  1 a: to enclose within or as if within walls b: imprison  2: to build into a wall ; especially : to entomb in a wall

A departure from First Time & Invasive Thoughts. Bella is an adult living with her significant other in Forks after leaving college early. The Cullens, after putting down their metaphoric feet, are pursuing careers rather than high school.

After much behind the scenes maneuvering by Alice, Edward and Bella meet at the bake sale from hell. So we begin.....

Rated NC-17 for dark themes of depression and anxiety. This is a story that has sexual content. It does not contain rape or sexual abuse. AU and somewhat OOC at times.

I like the story.  I'm not liking Mike - although he doesn't seem mean, just cleuless & self absorbed.  I hope Bella decides to move back to Charlie's

Author's Response:

Yep, Mike is truly an imbecile. Edward's hit the nail on the head with that one, at least as far as Bella is concerned.

I'm really happy to hear that you're liking the story. Thank you so much for taking the time to read & review.
