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.

The List by Laura Cullen Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 13655]
Summary:

Four weeks before her wedding to Edward, Bella is frustrated. She knows there's little-to-no chance of getting him to bend his rules and boundaries now, but there's no harm in fantasizing about what could happen later. So she begins compiling a list of things that she and Edward can do together once they're happily married. She's surprised to find she might be able to cross some things off earlier than she thought...

Story contains mature themes and is not intended for younger readers.

Thanks to Mandi, aka m81170, for the great banner!

I don't know which to thank you for more, the lovely really long length of the chapter or the fabulous, devine visuals at the end!!!  lol

I didn't think this could get any hotter, but it did.  It also managed to be tender and a tinsy bit deep as well.  Bravo!!!  We're loving this story for a reason--your fab. talents!!!

Love the notebook!!!  Just about literally lmao at the two hours of his list writing!!!  :D   Love what you did with Jasper.  I always wondered why E didn't know she was suffering in silence by reading Jasper---even with the intense focus he had on her.  Can hardly wait to see what you have happen when she wakes!  Loved how tender, poigiant and touching the chapter was.  It really made E grow.  Nice!!!

As always, thanks for sharing your fabs story and talent with us!!!

Perfect!  I'm not sure I could pic a favortie, I'd been looking forward to these types of scenes.  But the month gifts and the storm were really perfect blend of giggles, ghnnnn's and drool crazed reading.  :D

Demolishing the cabin kinda made me wish my hubby and I were up for trying our best to replicate the scene (lol).

I have been imagining 'The Gift' since you initiated the prep for it.  Her waiting for him nude on the mountian couldn't have been more perfect.  His reaction was divine and all the thought put into making it happen just completed the realism for me.

Eminiently satisfying on so many levels!!!

Gonna miss this fic, but so glad I found this fic and took this journey you so generously shared with us!!!  Thanks for writing!!!

Absolutely brilliant!  I couldn't imagine not only a better gift for her to give him, but a better reaction and result as well.  Thanks for the lovely smut you through in, as well.  For once the rest of the story captivated me more (they're usually 50/50-- intellect/perv). 

Feels well and truely wrapped up.  I think every twi-fic reader should read this.  It's a perfect missing moment for canon!  Talk about award worthy.

Thanks for putting it up for auction!  Thanks to the winners for sharing, and to you for writing and sharing your talent with us!!!

 
Unwanted by bloodredlust Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1577]
Summary:

Edward couldn't bear to watch his beloved Bella being torn apart from the inside by his baby… so how might things have turned out for our favourite couple if he had taken the steps to ensure Bella’s survival, rather than let his spawn kill her. Very dark, Angsty little 'what if' story.

That was delicious! 

I had held off for a while reading this story because I wasn't sure I wanted to read something so dark. Boy was I wrong.  It's only dark before the dawn.  I'm really intruiged to see where you go with this.

Thanks for writing!!!



Author's Response:

Thanks for reading!  I've never written anything this dark before, but i have to admit, now that i have a taste for it, I think i'm going to do it again.  I hope you join me for the next fic, when this one is over.  xoxox Bec

Ooooo!  I'm liking this change of events!!!  Thanks for writing!!!

 

My deepest condolences on your loss.  Never easy under any circumstances.  My heart goes out to you and to all who lost him.



Author's Response:

Thankyou for your kind words.  His funeral was today, and the amount of people who turned out to farewell him was astounding. 

Personally, i'm still in shock.  He was only 24, and the circumstances were so tragic and horrific.  We will never forget him.

New chapter soon.  I'm trying to get my head back into the writing mindspace.

Love it!  I feel like we're getting to the meat of the story.  I can hardly wait to see the wolves' and Billy's reaction to B and E's return.  Reaction to Bella's choice seems pretty likely to be dramatic too.  Will the other Cullens meet B and E in Forks becase of Alice's ability?  :D

Drawing me in more and more!  Like how E's daughter get's imprinted no matter what!  :)  Seth always felt close to E...   :)

And the ---- hasn't even hit the fan yet!  When will Bella tell him now? Glad she had the realization of her betrayal of him.  Eggs!! HA!  Foreshadowing?!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed

Poignant, tender, and still intruiging.  Can't wait to see how Mr. Angst takes the big news.  So kind of Alice to leave Bella on the hook (smart little pixie!)  :D

As always, eager for more!

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: May 29, 2009 Title: Chapter 22: Compromise

Overall I liked it.  Finally getting into the meat of the story again.  I like the imprint--nice symetry. 

I agree Edward doesn't get angry with Bella, but he does usually get upset--she just initially thinks it's directed at her.  He probably  should have had a moment of freakout that he had to deal with and explain to her, that it was about his own insecurities rather than about her betrayal.  The EPOV you provided helped me with feeling like that reaction was missing.

As for the people who think the baby imprint is upsetting, all I have to say is-how sad for them.  Why is it so hard to believe that love can be multifaceted and selfless enough not to be errotic until it is age appropriate? I liked SM's explaination of the phenomena.  Why can you only be soul mates after you've reached the age of consent?  If it's really about attraction to the soul, then it's not about the flesh (or at least not until both sides of the flesh are ready for that!).

Thanks for writing!!!  Still eager to see where you're going (or to get to the HEA if that's what's coming).  I wouldn't mind another 20 chapters!  lol   ;)



Author's Response:

Thankyou hon... and i hope you don't mind, but i actually quoted a paragraph of your review in my reply to a narrow minded reader.  I honestly couldn't have said it better myself... so thankyou for your support.  I am so glad you like it.  I can't give you another 20... but i know i've got another good handful left to go. I hope you enjoy them.

I feel like we're really getting to the meat of the story now.  As always enthralled with your story and the interesting directions you go with it! I love the lowered angst level that keeps the normal level of concern present (as it would really be!).  Eager for more as always!  :D

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 10, 2009 Title: Chapter 28: Miracle

This seems really off the wall, but does she want to carry a baby for Jasper and Alice?  Seven months...I know I should be able to figure that out.  Like you suggest, I'll just have to think about it.

Can't wait for the tie up chapter.  This one was excellent...just like we've come to expect.  Loved JJ's name and abilities!!!  I'm sooo glad I caved and started reading this story despite being put off by the promise of dark themes.  Was waaaayyy to good to have missed!

Again, thanks for writing!

Diane



Author's Response:

Thankyou Diane... i'm so glad you joined me for this little story. 

Oh, and if you hadn't noticed, 'off the wall' is kind of my style.  ;)

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 13, 2009 Title: Chapter 29: Alterations

Fabulous!!!

Hey, I was almost right! Rosalie, instead of Alice (which makes so much more sense-I was just thrown off by B trying to think of how to thank Jasper).

Oh, so perfect!

I'd say that I can hardly wait for the Eplilogue, but I have to admit, I'd love another 20 chapter exploring in detail how the wolves react/interact with Rosie, how the Volturi react to the growing family, and more!

But I'll make due with savoring every word of the epilogue and look forward to your next story. (insert slightly pouty face trying to "buck-up*  lol

Thanks again for sharing your talent and ideas with us!

Love the little triumverate you set up with the kids.  Rosie reminds me of my own amazingly ahead of her time daughter who's 4 going on 40, I swear! :)

Look forward to the sequal.  Thanks so very much for the fantastic journey of this fic!  It was a "what if" well explored!

Date: May 05, 2009 Title: Chapter 20: Epilogue

Very human (in the best sense!)  I love the theme that our imperfections are what make things "perfect" when we've found that special someone. 

The characters truely live and breath.  A truely fresh take on our fav duo.

I was captivated the whole way through.  The dark times served to make the light more sweet.

Being in my 30's the whole idea of getting to adulthood and looking back on HS with addes wisdom was particularly attractive to me.

Thanks for writing!  I'll look for more of your stories!

 
Summary:

Edward is a lonely vampire who has been waiting for over eighty years to find his soul mate.  His sister Alice has never been able to see his true love, but for good reason--she hadn't been born yet.  When Alice finally sees her, plans are made to finally make Edward's dream come true.

This is a different version of Twilight, and it's told from Edward's point of view.

A little lemony, but not too graphic.  Rated NC-17 for mature themes and language, and possibly for violence in later chapters. 

 Thanks to Evilangel6714 for the awesome banner!

I didn't get creeped out by Edward and the Cullens attentions toward Bella at all.  If anything it came across rather a lot like the Quilieutes (sp) imprinting--patient waiting for the imprintee to be ready for romantic love.

Interested to see where you take the differences in your version, the cascade effect that's bound to have on the story and explainations for the changes!

Thanks for writing!
