A glitch is preventing TwiliteAddict and I from responding to reviews for our co-authored stories.  Please know we value and appreciate each and every one and will be replying just as soon as we can!!  Thanks for your patience and reviews!   :D




About Me:


I'm a wife, mother of two, and business owner who used to be a prospective whale biologist in Washington (not too far from the Olympic Peninsula--I can see Port Angeles from here on a clear day!). I met my then Stage Manager husband in the local theater while playing the role of a vampire (Dracula's Lucy) and my life was forever changed! Needless to say, drama comes naturally to both my kids, and they are the inspriation that keeps me moving. Reading, and now writing Twi-fic, is what's keeping me sane with the otherwise absolute lack of needed creativity in my life right now.


Despite having played a Vampire in a local production of "Dracula" I had not heard of "Twilight" until the movie came out.  Go figure.  My typical cuppa is Sci-Fi/Fantasy, not Romance and never before vamp fiction, so my RL friends and family find it histerical that this genre has sucked me in so deeply!  :D  I have a google search for "Best Twilight Fan Fiction" to thank for finding the fandom in the first place.


 


I came for the lemons, but have stayed for the creativity.  And boy, am I glad I did!!!


 


I chose RosaBella as my penname over on ff dot net,  because I have a classic look that strongly resembles Rosalie, I love working on my Mustang with my father (having rebuilt it with him awile back- and didn't mind smelling to high heaven of gasoline and gear oil for 6 straight weeks to do it), but am Bella to my core.

Here's another amazing pic that fits in with Dark Side of the Moon perfectly -thank you to JohannaL for ID'ing the author:  http://smirks-works.livejournal.com/ check out her (I assume) other manips - she's a genius!

Updated November, 2009

This story is now COMPLETE!

Dark Side of the Moon is my version of New Moon from Edward’s point of view.  Witness how Edward agonized over leaving Bella, hunted for Victoria, faced the Volturi, and came to realize that with Bella was where he was meant to be. 

This tormented story has been a part of my life for about a year and a half – and what a ride it’s been!  Meant to be canon and in character, I hope you enjoy angsty Edward and his suffering during New Moon.  As unhappy as Bella was during this time, Edward suffered so much more (I think).  So be sure and crack open a fresh box of tissues before reading!

 Thank you to everyone for all the reviews, especially to those of you who reviewed each and every chapter!  Your support and loyalty have been the driving force to me getting this project finished – and I hope it’s lived up to all of your expectations.

Love you all,

blondieakarobin

PS.  As one last thank you, I’ve posted a formatted, printable copy of Dark Side of the Moon at http://bit.ly/2vLHMi, as will also post as an electronic version suitable for viewing on a kindle or MobiReader.  I’m also posting a ‘Director’s Cut’ that includes citations of all of Bella’s quotes from Twilight, research notes, and even funny comments from my betas in this version in the same directory.

Summary: Feature

Stranger than Fiction is the FANTASY story of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's FICTIONAL off screen romance while filming Twilight.   I have a slide show of their pictures running in a small window on the upper left hand corner of my computer screen and they whispered this little story to me one day.


NO HARM IS INTENDED BY THIS STORY.


IT IS A TRIBUTE TO MY TWO FAVORITE ACTORS.

Seducing Ms Swan by Rialle Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3032]
Summary:

 

AU Post-New Moon.

Bella never jumped, Alice never had her vision and Edward never came back. Six years later, Bella is struggling to make a new life for herself as a teacher in Rochester, New York. How will she fare when a very familiar student crops up in her classroom? Will she be able to remain professional, or will old ties get in the way?

Edward is convinced that getting Bella back is just a matter of 'persuasion', but Bella isn't prepared to be that cooperative. What's more, she's in the grip of a dark secret which threatens to prevent her from loving ever again.

Bella Swan is slipping under...

I think you achieve the balance you were after.  Nice journey and character progression.  Loved the interaction with Jake's imprint.

You do beautiful dialogue!  Wish I did as well.  :)

Really excited to see how you wrap this up.  This is one of the few fics I'm a bit curious if it will end in heart fail rather than HEA.  Either way I'm on board. 

Glad you're back!  As always, eager for more.

I love that Jake lets them have it.  Interesting choice having Jasper's talent act like a drug trip/anethetic.  Bella is well and truely championed!  Especially nice having Jake finally let out how he feels about Brady. 

Thanks for refinding your motivation and possibly love for the story.  I really am enjoying jake's pov.  Like you said, he has a lot to say that the other characters don't. 

Feelin' the 'love' of your dedicaiton (3 am post)!  Looking forward to experiencing more of your creativity!  It's a fabulous premise, done very well!

Loved it!  Bella showed how she has matured (deepened who she was as a teen) into an independent woman (who's used to yelling at immature children!).  She still showed the selfless compassion she's known for, and did her best to postpone emotional turmoil while having epiphanies about said turmoil.  Bravo!

VERY  glad to hear that the next chap is on the way!  I have sooooo missed this fic!

Thanks for sharing the personal insight with us, and entertaining us/satisfying our thirst for your story, as well!!!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: October 15, 2009 Title: Chapter 17: An Ending

Like that he doesn't get to make the choice again.  Just because he's realized his mistake doesn't mean she doesn't need some time to process.  It would be VERY hard to be mid twenties dating a guy who at most looks 19-20, esp as a teacher.  He decided to leave for her (but really for his own lack of self esteem, kinda twisted codependence), he's decided to stay for him, and still isn't saying my deciding for us isn't working what's your input.  That maturation has to happen in frozen boy or he won't be a good partner for a matured Bella.  Love the line that he's frozen, but she matured.  He's kinda getting the shoe on the other foot.  She''s deciding for him what their relationship will/won't be without his input.  And it's nearly killing him.  Welcome to her life 6 yrs ago.

Looking forward to seeing the progression.  Hope the muse and RL help get the next chap out soon (I can't in anyway grief on you for the long update times, I'm having trouble writing the latest chap of my Togaward in Roman Orgyland fic!  So I'll just offer my support, intead!!)  :D

Date: June 25, 2010 Title: Chapter 20: Dear Edward...

So glad to see the update!  Just the right amount of angst, and bravo on the letter!  I can see why it was so pivital and can only imagine how difficult it would have been for me to write if my story had needed such an element.  So empathy and kudos for an element well done!

It fun for me envisioning how their life posing as humans would go at this point (assuming she'd still turn vamp at some point).  She's now similar in age to Esme when she was turned.  Quite a shift in the societal dynamic and coverstory.  But it makes me wonder if she at this point thinks she could live out her human life.  Kinda think even if she did, the knowledge that he'd suicide at her death would still have an enormous impact on that decision, so she wouldn't do it.

As eager as ever for more!  Thank-you for sharing your talented imaginings with us!!!

I am so impressed that you have written this at the beginning of your life experience!  Tell your brother thanks from us for the kick in the pants! lol

It's hard to think it will be over.  There's still so much I want to know about how they will build a life together now that society will view them so differently than if they were together per canon.  Soo glad to hear there will be an epilogue to give us some insight.

Thanks for the update!  Thanks for writing and sharing!!!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 25, 2010 Title: Chapter 22: Epilogue

Tried the link, but it's not working. :D

Nice end.  For all I usually like concrete answers to my plot questions, this definitely leaves us with the knowledge that Charlie saw her married and happy (though still with reservations) and that her relationship with Jake was changed, but is in a hopeful note (that may rest that was for the rest of his life) and that Bella is beginning her forever with an E who is able to pull off being her social match pretty well.  I can appreciate as an author needing to put a story into a place of finality to move on to other projects.

Thanks for sharing this journey with us!!  Look forward to your future projects!

Is Bella's lullaby going to be the key to her memory, I wonder.  I'm glad you had her memory remain hidden even after the kiss, and his realization that deep down he'd wanted to be Prince Charming was all that much better!

I'm guessing that her shield locked away her personality as a defense mechcanism to protect her from the Volturi or from the fear that E wouldn't want her if he didn't change her.  The increase in her self esteeme seems to be going somewhere, made me wonder if this is linked with the cause.

Thoroughly enjoying myself!  Thanks!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 31, 2009 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 7 Home Again

Once again completely intruiged by your writing!  This is a nice little twist to the typical story line, actually a fabulous "what if" explored.

I always thought Alice's lack of human memory was not only due to her having been kept in darkness, but also electroshock therapy which was prevalent at the time (I think).  I had figured that the "old vampire" as James basically referered to him, had performed a high voltage treatment just prior to biting her.  The venom would have been able to repair the tissues acording to her DNA, but not the chemical encoding for memories.

Eagerly reading more now!  Thanks for writing!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 31, 2009 Title: Chapter 22: Chapter 21 Unexpected News

So the trigger for her memory obviously wasn't her lullaby, his kiss, or any specific location.  Could it be the big "O?"  My bet is starting to be on the Volturi pushingit and her desire to protect her family pushes her to use her ability and with it regain her memory.  Can hardly wait to find out!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 31, 2009 Title: Chapter 24: Chapter 23 The Volturi Come

Well, I was half right!  :D

Really nice chapter!  Still excited for what's to come, and quite serene that I'm not likely to guess (it's more lovely that way, don't you think?!).

Thought the comment that history repeats itself to be absolutely perfect! Very nice execution of that thought as well!

Such a thoroughly enjoyable "what if" story!!!  Thanks for sharing it!

 
Summary: Feature

It was said of early vampire books and movies that vampirism was simply a poorly disguised substitute for sex. Back in the day, the entire genre was considered extremely risque'. With that in mind, this is a parody of Midnight Sun replacing all the vampirism with sexuality - no blood lust - just extreme human lust. AH/AU and consequently, OOC.  Thank you to Debussy_This for the fabulous (and hysterical) banner!!!
