Hiya, or should that be ... g'day?


I'm 38, and live in Western Australia. I work full time, am putting myself through university part time, paint, and write. Oh, and it goes without saying that I'm a huge fan of Twilight. I've written fanfic before (in my ancient past), but I'm yet to take on the Twilight genre.


That said, I've done a few creative writing courses at uni, and if anyone wants a beta and knows the characters and settings, then pick me!


I've finally registered because I've become SUCH a fan of so many of the stories here, that I'm working my way through my list and making sure that I leave reviews for them all.


Cheers


Sandy

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!!!

What a hoot!  You've certainly kicked off this story with a .. uh .. bang, so to speak.  Great syntax, the dialogue works really well, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Well done!

Cor! I was wondering what the hell was going on there, and thought you had jumped the gun a bit with the storyline. Okay, more than a bit actually.  Had to laugh at the conclusion of the chapter though - poor Edward ...

Seeing eye dog? That bit cracked me up.  This teenage Edward is certainly a change from the 'Noble Vampire' that we're used to.  You're taking us on quite a ride (pardon the pun .... )

Heh heh heh ... this is all progressing nicely.  You must be having fun writing this.

Oh my god!  The situations Edward is finding himself in - I feel terrible for him, but still have to laugh at your turn of phrase.  Again, well written - it's a hoot.

Poor Edward.  It's a wonder he can manage to walk and talk at the same time, what with the lost of circulation (to his brain anyway)

what else can I say but ...phwoar ...

 
Summary:

Bella Swan meets a beautiful stranger, lawyer Edward Masen on a holiday in Rome. The chemistry is palpable, the sex passionate - and a physical relationship grows into something more. The days fly in a whirlwind of clothes, sand, sex and wine. After a painful realisation that the fantasy has come to an end, Bella returns apprehensively to Seattle, heartbroken at the loss of her love. 


But, little does she know that the 'beautiful stranger' isn't such a stranger, after all.

 

A surprise awaits Bella Swan in Seattle.

 

 

Rated for explicitly detailed sex scenes and language.

 

 

Beautifully accurate banner by the beautifully talented MrsC. Thank you!

oh this is just a sublime story! I'm well and truly hooked, and I'm very sorry that I haven't reviewed every chapter. It's just that I was so caught up in reading it that I didn't take the time to let you know.

Wonderful writing, great grammar and syntax, and it's just ... *happy sigh* .. well you get the idea.

s'wonderful, s'marvellous, s'more please! 

 



Author's Response:

Aw, thank you! Making sure my grammar/spelling etc is accurate is a personal nitpick of mine, so it's nice to know people notice. Lol, Don't worry, I know how easy it is to get caught up reading and not review, I am notoriously bad for doing that myself. ;)

And more will definitely be coming, I tentatively say on Thursday as long as no unforeseen obstacles arise!

ohhhh!  Great plot development here darl.

I have to say that you really captivated me with Edward's POV, especially the part about time meaning little to him etc.  Very nicely conveyed.  Of course, it goes without saying that I'm addicted to this storyline anyway, but it's lovely to find gems like that in your chapters that really stand out.

Great writing as always, and ... not to sound too stalkerish or pathetic (38 year old) fangirl ... MORE PLEASE!



Author's Response:

Thank you, the whole time section kinda struck me out of nowhere but it seemed like such an Edward thing to think :)

Hehe, asking for more is definitely not stalkerish or pathetic...and I promise its coming real soon!

Oh thank goodness!  I was starting to wonder what the hell was going on with the whole coma thing ... and next we get a chapter that sheds a bit more light on it? Yeah? Soon? How soon?  you're writing it now?  How's it going?  Are you having fun with it?  When will it be up? Huh?  Is it up yet?  No? How about now? ... Now?  

Fantastic writing as always darl - it hooks me in every time!

Yep, the next chapter sheds some light on what exactly Bella's been going through...lol, its coming, a little late, but still coming :)

Hey girl

 What a wonderful story!  I'm sorry that I didn't review every single chapter so far, but I've just read them all in one hit (totally addicted now) and figured that 12 reviews in a row might seem a little stalkerish!  Suffice to say, it's a fabulous story, your writing is wonderful, and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next instalment!

Cheers

Hot dayum woman this was a good chapter. Of course, it goes without saying that I cracked up when I read the line about the boys fighting over Hilary Clinton - hilarious!  Hell, if an Aussie can get a US political joke then you know you're doing something right.

So uh ... there's more of this coming soon, right?

Hey sweetie

I'm so glad to see that you're writing again, and what a wonderful chapter!  Having experienced a similar loss this week myself, I can relate to what you've been going through. It makes for a difficult time, but having a creative outlet helps.

Take care of yourself, and we'll all be here waiting for your next chapter, just take your time and make sure that you're feeling okay.

Hugs

Sandy 



Author's Response:

Thank you so much, and I am so sorry about your own loss. Things like this just leave you questioning everything huh?

I appreciate your kind words. Really, I do!

What if Edward left Bella again, after returning from Volterra? What if thirty years later he returns to Italy, in hopes the Volturi will end his existence this time? But what if Bella's among there coven and she's one of them?

Rated NC-17 for future chapters, will have a few different POV's but mostly Bella & Edward

W.O.W.

Your opening chapter has seriously grabbed my attention and I'm definitely wanting to read more.  Before I do though, I wanted to let you know how impressed I am.

Your writing style has a crisp delivery that makes it a pleasure to read. Your descriptions are very evocative without going too far with the detail, and you've established enough of the past history to create intrigue, but not melodrama.  Excellent work. More please!

 
Reviewer: sandyk199 Signed
Date: December 20, 2008 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 An Empty Bloody Coffin

Again, marvellously done.  I don't quite know how to put this properly into words, but bear with me.  'Your voice' is impersonal, as it should be as you unfold the story, but the character's 'voices' are emotive, and I find the contrast between the two is very good.  You have a very mature approach with your writing, and I'm looking forward to the next chapter!

Of course, the joy in coming to an established story relatively late in the piece means that I have the pleasure of gorging myself all in one sitting.  Once I've caught up however, there'll be hell to pay. No pressure! LOL
