It will be interesting to see how their relationship goes


Whatever is left of me

When Edward returns to Bella of his own accord, he does not realise that just a few hours earlier she nearly drowned in an attempt to hear his voice. He soon finds that the girl he came back to is indeed very much altered from the girl he left behind, and that it takes more than saying sorry to rebuild their lives.

Thanks to Annamorphos for providing the banner!

Uh oH Did the Volturi come to visit?

Author's Response:

It seems probable, doesn't it ? ;-) Thanks for reviewing!! I hope you liked the chapter.


Drinking only the blood of animals, Edward Masen fought to keep his humanity in an existence that always craved death and human blood.  But after ten years of suppressing the monster that rules his instincts, Edward believes that you can't hold on to what you don't have.  As he struggles with his ideals over right and wrong, Edward must decide if his humanity is a fair price to pay for a decent meal.

This story covers Edward's "rebellious years" when he left Carlisle to prey on humans.  But only the bad ones, so it's okay.......he thinks.

 *Awesome banner created by the amazing Tkegl.  Go read her stories.  Now.*

Love Story by EveryDayBella Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 99]

Twenty-two year old Princess Bella Swan thinks she knows what she wants out of life, a handsome prince to sweep her off her feet and rescue her from a life of service. When quiet, intuitive, pianist Edward Cullen is invited to Court though, Bella's world is a thrown a curve ball. Love may come easy, but life in Court, modern though it maybe, is never easy. Surrounded by scheming lords and power hungry men, Bella and Edward may be doomed to the same fate as every other star-crossed lover in history. As Bella learns more about herself she's pulled between choices far greater than simple lovers, because in her hands rests the fate of an entire kingdom.

I know right? Something tells me that Cynthia can take care of herself though. ;-) Thanks for the review!


These are a collection of outtakes and deleted scenes from my story, For Whom the Bell Tolls.  There will probably be around half a dozen chapters in this submission, including Alice and Jake POVs.  And some vampy lemons.

AU Post-New Moon. NOTE- AU Hybrid Vamps:

Tony Swan

Banner by Mehek18

Set in 2010, the supernatural world is in a crisis unprecedented, its' very structure challenged by a force yet to be seen. As this new threat sends ripples of discord and panic throughout the ranks, a young vampire and her two children, twin beings as different as light and dark, struggle to remain hidden in the shadows; away from the world they belong to.

But not for long: Embittered by the desperate state his father left him, his mother, and his sister in five years prior, Tony Swan yearns for purpose; an opportunity to let out who he truly is. No more lies. No more veils. He won't have to wait long-as his sister grows normally, he inches closer and closer to adulthood, mind and body rapidly maturing despite the few years he has walked this Earth. And yet, throughout all this, one key fact remains forgotten by the young hybrid: fate's plan is never simple.

And in a world where monsters of human and marble flesh exist, how can it be?


Pulling to re-write:

Well, technically not pulling, but definitely re-writing.

I’ve given it a lot of thought. I was actually going to do this once I got the 13th chapter of my main WIP out (So it wouldn’t that bad of a shock, after all I already warned of a hiatus on its way), but so far I haven’t been able to churn out anything that could pass as a chapter that’s “in- character” in regards to the present version of my fic. It’s just…not working. No matter how hard I try to write ch.13, I keep going back to my old copies of chapters one, two, and three and re-writing them. Hell, I’m already on ch.4.

I’ve looked at my early chapters, compared them to the most recent ones, and realized that the flow, the tone of the writing itself, doesn’t match. I had a completely different mindset when I began, still figuring things out, still not setting things in stone, and throughout the experience I learned a lot. More so if I hadn’t posted in the first place. A huge learning experience, I guess you could say.

It made me remember why I wanted to write this story in the first place, and that because I was under the impression I had to conform to a framework because it was fan fiction, I put what I really wanted on the back burner in order to write/focus on what I thought was supposed to be written/focused on.

And then I finally had an epiphany: I don’t have to follow any sort of guideline. I can write what I want to write. I don’t have to have the story closely tailored around Edward and Bella, or any of the other canon characters, I don’t have to write from certain POV’s in the first place because the truth is, my story, as someone commented after looking over a past chapter I’d written, is “not really about Twilight.”
And that’ s the truth. Resent isn’t about Twilight, at least, not completely.

To the person who commented, thank you, by the way. You know who you are.

Now, you may ask, “why post a wip in the first place?” well, the truth was, I didn’t think the fandom would still be around once I completed Resent. It was 2010, the twi-craze was already dying down somewhat, and I thought it would be risky to take my time and finish the story first before posting. I thought I was working on borrowed time. Plus, I wasn’t sure if the twist I had going with my main oc’s. would be received well.

The reviews and the fact that a good number of us are still here kind of blows those pre-conceived notions out of the ballpark, to my sweet relief.

What I said in past thread posts still stands: as long as the story is posted, it is not abandoned. Hiatus maybe, but not abandoned. The fact that it is still there means that I’m still a part of the fandom. If I ever decide to flounce, there is no way in hell that I would ever leave any of my writing’s unmonitored on the internet. If I ever decide to discontinue, you readers will be the first to know.

I’m leaving the current copy of Resent on, twilighted, and twcs for these reasons, and also because I know there are some who still enjoy re-reading the posted chapters. I’m sorry if this is upsetting. I know the update schedule for this fic has been somewhat tumultuous and nail-biting, especially with how things were left the last chapter, but I feel like if I don’t say something now, I’m going to end up posting something bland and soulless. Once I’ve written enough of the new version (or completed it) I’ll pull the old version and start re-posting.

I won’t hold it against you if you flounce, just don’t tell me that you are.

Again, I’m sorry about this guy’s, but my gut is telling me this is something I have to do.

Wow.  I'd love to know what happened the night Tanya shot the video.


Interesting take on the little girl.  Did she see the movie & think Edward was hurting Tanya?


Was Tanya actually attacked or did she fake it?  How did the DVD get into Bella's bag?

Bella is right.  Edward is not ready to be with her.  Edward needs to ask himself why he was staying in a toxic relationship and willing to go into a toxic marriage.  He needs to resolve that before he has a chance with Bella


Edward made a decision after that second biology lesson.  Two years later that decision is challenged.
