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.

Present perfect is a pain...in any language!

I get lost in your story just like any other well written one!  In otherwords I generally don't notice anything in your writing that would tip me off to the fact that English isn't your native language (if you hadn't said anything).  Tres bien!  :)

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: April 30, 2009 Title: Chapter 2: Sam and Emily

I do have to ask, what happened to Emily being angry in the beginning but comming around because of Sam's dedication.  (or does that come later after she's had to think about taking her sister-like-cousin's boyfriend?

Merci pour ecrire c'est histoire.  C'est votre deuxieme que j'avais lire.  Je les aime bien!  Pardonez mes fautes si vous plait!  Je manque du practice!!! (mais j'aime l'oportunitee de practice!!)

(I'm a very 'creative' speller in English and it just gets worse in french--especially after 12 years without using it!! I hope it's not too apalling for you!  I'm having trouble remembering some of the conjugations in the "tu" form)



Author's Response:

Yes, well when I wrote the Sam and Emily chapter I didn't have Eclipse next to me because one of my friends borrowed it. And thought I know the story line by heart I forgot what Jacob told Bella about Sam/Emily/ Leah. So I forgot that Emily was mad at Sam and that he hurt her after. That's my mistake. But you can always imagine that right now she's ok with Sam but that when she'll fully understand everything she will get mad^^

And about the French conjugations and the "tu" and "vous", yes it something that seems awkward for you because you don't have it in English (and we, the English learners are very grateful for that^^). And I assume it's hard to put into practice.

Thank you for all your review. I'm submitting the first chapter of my new story right now.

A little more slowly going now for me (but I'm playing hooky again since I just sent ch4 back to Lisa) - but I figured, I'm a fast reader, so I'm not stealing away tooo much time! lol

Feel a wiggly kind of anticipation that we're gettin' into the (really) good stuff!  Loved how the synod fit in (gotta love when history backs up fiction so nicely!!!lol) Lovin' the way your mind is working!  Hoping to steal away more reading time soon!



Author's Response:

This chapter took me a while to get out as I had writer's block and then I needed to make sure the information given in this chapter was revealed a certain way.  I'm so glad it came out the way it did.  This was the chapter that pushed me to make the decision to drop my previous beta Moon920 and ask Mer if she was up for the challenge.  Long story short, my former beta just didn't get what I was trying to do, so I figured it was best we parted ways.

Thanks for reviewing Diane!

Glad to see it's up here!  Just as good this time around.  Something about the black with white letters just made this scene in particular more powerful for me!

Love what you do babes!  Can't wait for more (but no hurry, I don't want it to end!)  :D



Author's Response:

Thanks Diane!  I do love the black and white as well. Twilighted is the first place I posted and it feels like home to me.

I don't want it to end either!  :)

I had wondered about why Jake would tolerate E so close for so many years.  You do a stellar Jake, btw! Really glad I'm off the hook for the early development waiting (the tantalizingly short chappies would have been killin' me!! lol)

My brain is fried and I'm so tired I'm energised from my kids being sick and other demands of RL. so I'm playing hookie with your fic.  I've been wanting to read it for a while, and now I know why! 

Thanks for writing!

(I'll review when the spriti moves me as I go along.)  :)



Author's Response:

Diane, YOU are my 800th review!   ~ticker tape explosion~

 

I am sending you something special for that.  Let me know when you are caught up and I will send you a nice fat preview of Chapter 22 once I have it solidified.

Thanks so much for reading, reviewing when the spiriti moves you and taking a chance on Broken Doll.  There are many twists and turns in this story, so hang on tight.  If you have any questions at all, please PM me!

Practical Magic (which was filmed here btw!), meets Charmed, meets Twilight.  Two of my HUGE favs and really enjoy PM any old time. This retains just enough of a thread of the original to make the course of this really captivating. Interesting twist, nice back story!  Liking it alot.  Bella finally gets her shot at being supernatural herself in her own right.  Cool!



Author's Response:

I loved Practical Magic.  In fact my most favorite song EVER is featured in the soundtrack; "A Case of You" by Joni Mitchell.  Egads how I love that song and it's gorgeous lyrical prose.

Have I told you how much I adore you now?  Fangirl = Me.

Yeah, lemons seem to scare the review right out of people! *shrugs and shakes head*  Go figure (considering it's what most of them are reading for! LOL)

Nice tub time, great transition to the informational bits.  Histerically lovely his reaction to her saying his name.  Good cliffie, even.  Leaves us thinking.

Thanks for writing something that gets my brain engaged!

The tub time scene I obsessed over for weeks. I'm so glad it came across ok!

I loved the line about the only thing still about Alice was her heart.  Great line!

There's another saying about us bikers:  There are two kinds of bikers, those who've been down and those that are going down.  :D

Nice reunion scene!  Very enjoyable fic.  Looking forward to seeing how the twists go!



Author's Response:

Oh wow, you ride?  AWESOME.  What do you ride?   I don't ride.  The only thing I've ever ridden is a dirt bike.  In a potatoe field. Which caused me to break my back upon hitting a tractor rut.  Yup.  Not one of my shiniest moments.  Thankfully, all I lost was an inch and a half in height and a few years of my life doped up on painkillers and wearing a backbrace.  I'm a very lucky girl regardless and I would rather have chronic pain than be paralyzed. 

Love your reviews Diane.  Truly.  

 

 

 
Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed

Forgot to say last chap. I LOVED the gift of the bike and all it symbolized, and that she found it arrousing, and hence so did E!  Very nice!

Adored their ride!  Mnngghhh!  I'm a too twisted for my own good! *mwhah* 

I think I forgot to say, you can do a tub scene any time you want, cause the first one was HOT!  The scene in this chapter certainly sealed the deal!  Nice connection to original with the bed!

Really like how her power is progressing and Jasper's connection with her and sharing of his wisdom had a very satisfying depth that we don't often see in fic-dom.  Thanks!



Author's Response:

The bit with her ogling the bike and Edward ogling her ogling the bike was fun to write.   As was him riding behind her.  Mmmmm.  How I would love to feel that man sitting behind me on a crotch rocket.  Fuck that.  How I would love to have that man put his rocket in my crotch. Damn!  Did I just say that outloud?  I'm frisky tonight.  Must be because of the AMAZING fic I just read called Forbidden Desires.  Has me all minky and foul minded.  

Thanks for yet another inspiring review!

HOLY F**K!!!  That boy better be using every ounce of his Wolfy speed to get thr h out of there!!! 

Seriouly, each chapter is better than the last and has me mildly ticked each time I get pulled away from it.  Really glad I didn't get left hanging with this cliffie it would have had me squirming in my seat more than I already am.

And she still has to go back for the book, and how's she gonna calm down, and...  I could go on and on!

Thanks for creating this gripping tale!!!



Author's Response:

Hee hee hee!  I couldn't wait for you to get to this chapter as it is one of my favorites. Rie totally inspired me for this chappie in sending me the Paula Cole song.  I listened to it on loop over and over while I was writing.

Nice exorcism!

You'd think he'd learn from Jake's example if nothing else! :D



Author's Response:

Thank you!  I was worried it would be too dramatic, but hell, chapter 14 wasn't exactly cheese and crackers.  I also wanted to show that exorcisms are not just tied in to Christianity / demonic posession....that they are prevalent in many cultures in many different ways.

That Edward...protective to a fault! ;)

That was a really fun way to end my evening. Thanks!

Loved the bond between Leah and Jake.  The one-ups-manship game is perfect (and utterly histerical!).

The beads were a lovely touch, and I didn't end up feeling like Jake's acceptance of the inevitable was rushed.  Excellent way to get him there in such a short amount of time.

Thank-you for writing!  I'll have to check out more of your work (as soon as I wouldn't be playing hookie from my own fic to do it! lol)  ;D

GORGEOUS banner btw!  I'd meant to mention that a few days ago when we were tinkering with mine.  It has a crisp, sensual, simplicity that is far stronger than a multiimage one would be.

Really fabs chapter!  I think you're catching your stride.

Damn, she's intimidating!!! *bright eyed grin*  Jasper/Em *groans* was a delightful comedic moment! 

Likin' the forshadowing of the V dangerously dismissing Alice!  Excellent details, am eager to see how they play out!  It's gonna suck when I have to start waiting!  :D



Author's Response:

Thank you so  much!  When I saw that image I absolutely HAD to have it for my banner. It was fun to work on.  All hail photobucket!!

It's about time I catch my stride considering we are probably about 6-8 chapters from the finish!  ha ha ha!

The Jasper and Em scene was my way of begging off on the "Emmett reaction" to Bella's glass shattering as I racked my brain trying to think of how he could tease her and I came up with bubkiss.  LOL!

I'm really excited to see how this plays out!  You have most definitly hit your stride now! 

Thanks for writing!!!



Author's Response:

Thank YOU Diane for giving this story a chance and reviewing so thoughtfully each chapter.  I can't tell you how lovely it's been getting to know you and read you gorgeous fic!

I'm hoping to have chapter 22 at least nailed down by the end of the weekend and perhaps posted for next week if I can swing it.  I don't want to rush the chapters too much as we are nearing the end and it all needs to be laid out and executed in a particular way, and my notes are an unholy mess.

My "cookie" for being my 800th reviewer still stands, once chapter 22 is solidified, I will be sending to you for an special preview. ;)

Hmmm, may have to convene the stars of Aro's collection for your personal gratification!! lol  Hmmm, a personal session in the baths with all the Cullen boys?  I'm sure they'd put aside their usual philisophical beliefs and embrace a night more typical of their society for YOU!  ;D  Personal massages on shoulders, feet  and all over simultaneously comes to mind!

Loves ya, Babes!!!

I'll check out Branded as soon as I can, and props to the artist responsible for the fabs pic!!

Chapter was just as great the second time around!!  I'm so glad this fic is reallizing it's potential!!!

oooooooh!  Baths with the Cullen boys sounds beyond dreamy.  Can you throw Jake in there too?  Maybe we should loosen Charlie up while we are at it....Aren't I a greedy hOOr?

Outstanding chapter!  I love what's happening and what's being hinted at!

"Striga, Moroi and Pricolici...three species speaking as one voice."  This line makes me think Bella's going to have to become a vamp before their victory will be assured, since she's the only one with the genetics to do so (be all three at once witch, shifter, and vamp).  :hyper:  I can hardly wait to see if I'm right!

I'm also intrigued to see why Bella kept it from E as a knee jerk response.  Other than a need for further drama to wait!

Blissed out right now!  You're hitting it out of the park now chica!!!!

Beautiful sweat.  Her vision was a tantalizing as always.  I tried doing a sweat on the beach once and we (stupidly) used sea water!  Arololized salt burns the nose and lungs! Exploding rocks were another learning curve (gotta use river rocks! lol).  Needed Harry to guide us! 

Ungh! This just gets better an better.  I love how for as much as we love Edward yours makes it so aparent that if he weren't a supernatural being he'd be rather anoying, and certainly not as worth having as he is in the fairytale! LOL  Bella's responses to him were perfect (as was his concern).

Thanks for writing!!  Can't wait to see what Alex shows her.



Author's Response:

Eeeeep!  I used beach rocks in my scene.  Oh well.  I guess my penchant for realism has to give somewhere in a story about witches, weres and vamps!  LOL!

I've been quite casual with Edward in this fic.  He's more of a supportive role...he's rather gratuitous.  I need him for the sexy times.  Ba ha ha ha ha!

I wanted this fic to be about Bella and how she came into her own.  I hope Edward respects her more for it.  ;)

Frantically writing Chapter 28...I'm not sure if I will have it out before xmas or not...I'm trying!

Thanks so much Diane.  Smooches all over!

I just realized that I hadn't reviewed yet!  I managed to read on a night that our dsl was blinking, so managed to download the page, but not send any data.  Damn autoupdates did away with my desktop after that. Grr.

Don't worry about having used the beach rocks, ya naturally would, they just break from the heat whereas river rocks don't.  Probs if you dried them well first they wouldn't explode (sm pops that send tiny bits a short distance). 

Loved this chapter!  Hearing about the torture that created Jane, Alex's isolation and waiting game, and his joy at finally being able to open up were moving.  The realization of Bella's power nearly had me cowering with Alex.  Loved the sharing of the books, the info inside them and can't wait to hear more about Taha Aki's presence!  Wondering if he's planning to finally die in the revenge to save them all and finally rejoin his love?  This is gonna be one heck of a battle scene!  Bella throwing fireballs should be awesome!

Love what you do so well, bb!!!

Thanks for writing!!!

I am sheepishly replying to this so very late.  I dropped my basket in the fandom with all the craziness going on in this house since January, but I know I don't have to preach to you about craziness of the geri and pedi-atrics!  

Thank you so much D for all the support you have given me and the bright shiny light of your friendship.   

I'm consulting my cards soon about your move.  Had to even out my mojo.  ;)

xoxo

Kari
