A glitch is intermitently 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 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!).

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.

So Bella transformed in Denali.  The other body thefts were to disguise that hers was the only one really saught.  The breaking in the background of Tanya's call was newborn Bella (wanting the phone perhaps?).  Ultimately she's not dead, just Denali.  That's why Tanya's glued to the phone, worried that they need her at home to control newborn Bella.

Giddy whether I'm right or wrong!!

Mmmm, could still be Carlisle, but not as certain as I was.

LOVE it!

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: November 25, 2009 Title: Chapter 29: Chapter 29:Strangers In The Night

Okay, my theory:

Carlisle got a nomad friend to take a syringe of venom in and inject Izzy's heart.  Must have disguised his scent somehow (masking it with Carlisle's?).  The heart will stop for a while, but then take back up as the transformation progresses. 

The intruders words strike me as a rational/expaination of his actions, not telling her what will happen, but what would did happen or would come to pass if he didin't act.

That or the Volturi are already involved and have the Denalli male (whose name escapes me) helping out. 

But I trust that it's for the good and adore the twist!!  Limbo chapter was powerful. Thinking she won't be pissed to wake as a newborn the way she would have without that experience.  ADORED Jasper's words about being her secret keeper and what he revealed about her emotions.  Even better than what I'd been expressing/thinking!

Huge puffy heart ya!!

Glad I now get instant gratification since I turned the 4 wks into far longer on accident!

Thanks for the suggestion on the condoms, but aint marriage grand, no need!

Get any threats from PITA bent readers on the bear?  LOL

Great chap, mmmm pool sex.  Very nice!  Love the new goofy horndogs!

Really love that she still has control issures, so for all she's mourned (finally) and forgiven him, it's still there.  I find it very interesting that she doesn't want to be changed now and that it really boils down to control issue on being an out of control newborn.  Granted she's still a danger magnet, so she could end up so hurt they change her to save her. Trust.  Intruiged in the mean time. 

Adore the ride!

Thanks for writing!!! (Hope you had a great vaca!)

I can't believe I didn't check more closely sooner!  Here I thought this hadn't been updating and it was really that I was just missing out on the updates!   This is one of my absolute favs, I was having serious withdrawls!

So now I'm playing serious hookie from my Togaward lemonball to catch back up!  You should have seen me on the Dead Confeds thread when I found out I'd been such a dolt!  Wild gyrations and squeeling.  *grimaces and nods*

So, this was frickin' fantastic!  Loved the epiphainies they had and that you so wisely pointed out it takes two to tango, and most certainly two to fuck things up as thoroughly as they did.  The equality thing has me utterly blissed.  I adore Izzy and that she's finally dealing with her emotions instead of running from them.

Enough, I've got more chapters to burn through in my little bit of time before RL reclaims me!

Thanks for writing!!!

Date: December 06, 2009 Title: Chapter 38: Chapter 38:Twilight

Delicious treat of a chapter!  Their musings on "what might have been," cracked me up!  Especially the bit about Reneesme.  Nice tie in and demo of how they are consistent and different when comp with canon.

The bit in the begining where they were smacking each other around reminded me of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  Delightful!

Jas was just as histerical as Em, and loved the Esme and Carlisle schtick.  :D

Loved the sprinklings of vampy lemon cruchies too! *waggles eyebrows*

I am so excited to see where these crazy couples go in the sequel.  I'm guessing the Volturi will rear their chalky arses.  I think it would be histerical if Izzy and Edward (with occasional Emmy Bear intrusions) had a Mr and Mrs Smith one-up-manship competition during a battle.  :D

Was the mention of children here foreshadowing that they will be adopting Izzies' human spiritual twin or something?  I could ask all sorts of intrusive questions about where you are taking the next intallment, but I'm trying to restrain myself! lol

Thanks for the mention in the C/N!  Very fun and flattering!!  I'll have to ask RowanMoon what she corrected ya on the next time we skype! She's such a doll!!! :D

Best wishes for your impending addition to your fam.  Times like this makes me (almost) want another one, but then the two I have demonstrate why some species eat their young, and I'm good again.  LOL

As always, thank-you so very much for writing and sharing your amazing tale with us!!!

Author's Response:


Okay what I can reveal about the!

Just kidding...god I'm just as much as a bitch as Z is, lol! Anyway there won't be much emphasis on Edward more so on Izzy, maybe Fred and Tanya. I plan on bringing Jasper on into a big role in it as well. The Volturi are involved plus the wolf will also be darker with sprinklings of humour because I'm me and don't do angst!

Aw thanks for not getting up in my biz bout them smacking each other...some people were a bit fruity about Edward smackin Izzy and I'm all like "Its Z she loves it rough". And then you mention Mr and Mrs. and thats exactly how I see em. And I'm sure no one battered an eye over that movie! Pfft  ...oh well each to their own I guess.

RowanMoon was so sweet when she corrected me on grammar and some spelling errors and I think there was a minor plot hole...*mummy brain* I was totally for peeps to tell me if something was wrong but I'm sure a lot of reviewers get hashed out from authors when they do this. Me? I'm open and I can take a bashing! well as give one *wink*

LOL...I have thought about eating my young...esp when they are being turds! Though my kids are more like the bald eagle. You know two are born and the oldest pushes the smallest out of the nest so it can get all the food. Lol...I just got mental imagry...I come back from the bathroom "Wheres the lil one?" innocent face..."Well she was screwing around.." and then she legs it bahahahahha!

And no my kids don't cuss, lol!

God I can ramble...but then I really don't want to see the mess my kids have made in the lounge soo....

Thanks you so much...I know you pimped me out and you rock!

Best Completed - Gem Awards

Carlisle and Esme are the foundation of the Cullen Coven.  However, this love story started as a tragedy for Esme -- a loveless marriage, the death of her baby and finally an attempt at suicide.  This story traces how Carlisle and Esme eventually find each other and fall in love.  It weaves together Carlisle's and Esme's bio facts provided to Twilight Lexicon by Stephenie Meyer with some original ideas.  Rated R for later lemon content.

Hey, welcome to the story.  I hope you do enjoy it (sexy times don't arrive until the end -- but you'll have to let me know how I did).  I have to say I fell in love with C&E  Believe it or not, Edward provides a lot of the humor in this story.  Oh, the good ol' days.  Take care!

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 30, 2009 Title: Chapter 4: Ashland, Wisconsin

They did knock them out.  From 1st hand accounts I've heard they also discouraged breastfeeding as unsanitary.  The only thing they did right as far as I can see, was give the mom a whole week to recover before sending her home to cook and clean like normal for her husband.  :)

For the most I really did feel like I was in the past with her.  Nicely done! There were a few hints of more modern maternity, but it could be my own prejudices and the stories I've been told, more than any deficiency in the story.  To me it seems she was allowed to spend an awful lot of time with the baby outside the nursery, and they would have strong armed her about the rest issue.  Nurse Ratchet was the norm in those days!  From what I've been told by nurses, they tried to expell all compassion out of the nurses in training...for their own good.

This story is the perfect antidote to my day, so far!  Thanks!  I'm loving not worrying about catching up with the last update.  I too think SM would like this story!

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 30, 2009 Title: Chapter 5: Resurrection

Bravo!  Nothing neg to say!  Liked that she opened her eyes.  Really filled in the blanks from the info SM gave in a very satisfying way.

Glad to see the CEN info.  I've noticed fiction can be cathartic or at very least powerfully motivating in our own lives!

Eagerly clicking next, now!  :)

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed

Very eloquently spoken!  Nice little setup for future turns of events, too.  The relationships are developing nicely, but you're not dwelling on them too much, either.  Nice natural progression.

(I am wondering about the baby's body.  I'm guessing that info will come out when Esme is ready to hear about her past?)

Date: July 30, 2009 Title: Chapter 13: Flowers and Forever

Fabulous!  I'm having trouble coming up with more feedback than that.  Very satisfyingly follows the path I'd expect/want.  You convey their passion better than anything else.  I take up residence in their experience in those moments.  Love how they view Edward.  Love thinking about how things come full circle when E is planning similar scenes for B in the future!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for commenting on the chapters.  I am glad you find them enjoyable to read.  Writing in things that would become clearer or predict future occurences was fun!  And yes, I tried to make it obvious that what Edward was to become was very much influenced by Carlisle.  This whole writing thing is really cool!  Thank God Twilight came around.  Take care!

Date: July 31, 2009 Title: Chapter 15: Honeymoon, Part I

You say you are insecure about your lemons. but they are divine!  It's the mixture of the romance and love that make the lemon all the more errotic (and satisfying!).  The fact that you endevor to maintian the emotion is what puts your lemon writing above so many of the others I have read.  I don't think we could have asked for more from that scene (keeping in mind it was the beginning!).

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 31, 2009 Title: Chapter 16: Honeymoon, Part II

Loved what you did with the Champagne!  The tub scene was just the right mix of torrid and tender while being very insightful into their feelings and motivations.  It's what I love about your writing, and for all your professed insecurity about writing lemons, that's where I often see some of the deepest insight into the characters you're writing! 

( I do have to whine a little that you skipped over the last part! --can you see my pouty lip from there!)  ;D

Reviewer: IslandWoman221 Signed
Date: July 31, 2009 Title: Chapter 17: Journey

The insight and philosophical depth are stunning!  The ideas you express through Esme are ones we all could use to take deep within ourselves!  I think this chapter is at the very top of my all time favorites list for the depth of philosphical insight!

Divine similarities with Bella and her feelings about money, significance and worthiness!  So perfect to have that paralell, events coming full circle the way they do!

On another note, I'm also impressed with the hints of historical research I sensed.  They were wonderful! How much was stuff you already knew, how much was made up, and how much research for this story, I wonder?  Can't wait to read more from these two!  Fabulous wrap up!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write feedback!  I appreciate the stunning words.  Getting into people's heads has been a 'hobby' of mine for years -- being able to predict their actions.  Now I find I enjoy doing that with these characters -- it's a bit more fun too.

I'm glad you liked the lemons (and sorry if I left some out).  That is my extent of lemon writing -- but I find like you said its the build up that is so exciting.

I had a lot of fun 'researching' the origins of Isle Esme.  All that stuff about Portugal, the king, his wife, etc. was all factual.  I did look it up (I knew nothing),  I thought that this Island plays such a role in the story, I wanted it to have some history too.  The same is true about the train.  Did some research on that too -- the Panama Limited is the sister train to the City of New Orleans (which most of us have heard of) but the City of New Orleans was for lower classes, while the Panama was for the upper class (cool!).

Thanks again for the confidence boosting and appreciating the depth I try to write...
