What to say... I'm Irish. I study French and English literature at university in Dublin. Grudging, then obsessed fan of the Twilight series. I like angst, and a lot of it, but am an eternal devotee of the HEA, as is hopefully evident with my stories. I also like sunflowers (the clue's in the name) and poetry, especially e.e. cummings, John Donne, Pablo Neruda, Sara Teasdale... I could go on.


addicttwilight2 kicked me out of the writing 'closet', and all of you keep me coming back for more... what can I say. I'm a sucker for pretty boys with Superman complexes. ;)

Have to say, utterly loving this. At the very beginning I was slightly dubious because I simply didn't believe wholeheartedly that the whole classic soap-opera-y, I-fathered-a-child-with-someone-else thing would translate very well into twilight, but wow, did you pull it off. I adored it, every part, and my very favourite bit was probably either the back-and-forth between Edward and George about Edward's hair, or the bit where he goes to get her the better hot chocolate. So cute.

And then EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That cliffhanger was just... just... GAH!!!! More soon please, I'm dying over here!!!!



Author's Response:

Thanks very much!  I'm glad you're enjoying it.  Sorry about the cliffhanger.  The next chapter is in the queue so it could be up any day now.

I'm so, SO incredibly happy to see this up! SO HAPPY! It was perfect, so perfect. Your characterisation of Edward absolutely astounds me. I love this incarnation. It's so different from the Edward in the books, and somehow you manage to simultaneously be true to that Edward and still make him a better and more interesting character overall. I love it. I love it I love it I love it! Can't wait for part 2!!!

This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read, period -- fanfiction or no. Without a doubt my favourite fanfic out of all the ones I've read (and that has been a LOT). Just incredible, amazing, all manner of good things. 

 

Please keep writing. I am extremely impatient to see the epilogue from EPOV as well as many many new stories from you :)



Author's Response:

Thank you very much, your words mean a lot to me, thank you.  I'm so glad you've enjoyed the story.  I'm working on Edward's epilogue now, but I find him a little more difficult to write than Bella - he has a tendency to go on and on it seems.  I'm hoping it will be up in the next week or so.  Thank you once again for your review :)

The Escape by jedishelly1 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 332]
Summary:

The Escape - by jedishelly1

“This is your wedding, Bella, and it shouldn’t be something you have to merely tolerate.  I want you to want this for you, not because you feel that you owe it to me, Alice or anyone else for that matter!”

Edward grows concerned about Bella in the weeks leading up to their wedding day, as he sees how uncomfortable she is with the idea of a big wedding.  He wants Bella as his wife, but not at the risk of her sanity!  He begins to wonder if there is another option?

Bella is struggling with more than just the thoughts of a fancy wedding; the mere idea of marriage is causing her to stress...

"Nothing about my relationship with Edward was conventional, and I found it hard to reconcile our extraordinary bond with something as staid and traditional as marriage.  I had to tell him though... I cleared my throat, and then stared at the ceiling, unable to meet Edward’s gaze as I spoke the words that would undoubtedly break his heart.  “Maybe I do have some misgivings,” I mumbled, so low and so quickly that it would have been unintelligible to anyone not equipped with supernatural hearing skills."

Thank you to Anne Cullen for the beautiful banner!

I am so very glad to see this up. Like a proud mama. Seriously.

Looking forward to the ride -- and so enjoying knowing more than the rest of your readers... mwahaha! ;)

And awh, thank you for the kudos. As ever, you make me blush and grin like a fool. I think at this stage we're each other's biggest fans... xox



Author's Response:

Already you feel like family, dear.  With a side of ruler-wielding disciplinarian tossed in for good measure.

I feel like you may know more than I do about this story sometimes but I am glad you let me pretend to be the one in charge.  Hehe.  You are something else.

And I am so grateful for it!  Kisses back to you!

I read this chapter more times than I can count back when it first arrived in its inbox, and yet when I saw it was updated I STILL got a squealy feeling in the pit of my stomach, and reread all over again.

Sigh. Just the perfect read. You are a superstar my dear, and I am more than honoured to follow you with a ruler mumbling on about commas where semi-colons should be and all the rest of it ;P xoxo



Author's Response:

Oh, Danni!  The idea of running bodily into Edward Cullen or his breath on my ear -- even if it were to taunt me -- does things to this poor girl.

I squealed audibly while writing more than once.

You are adorable.  I will add more unnecessary commas, if, you'll, promise, to, wield, your, ruler.  Just saying.

love,

AM

You are my absolute favourite writer. I didn't think anything could be better than "Blood Lines" and then I run across this absolute gem... just caught up and I must say that you are the most evil woman I have ever run across, to leave it there...!

Amazing, amazing, AMAZING writing, however, and I'll be frantically clicking my refresh screen hoping to see an update from here on out! :)

I'm sorry, but.... HOW COULD YOU LEAVE IT THERE????????????????????????????????????

BAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've gotten many a review like this and they've always made me smile, but I dont' think I've ever been so completely and absolutely on the other side till now!!!

It was SOOOO painful, SOOOOOOO bittersweet and beautifully written and just... just... just AAAAH, and then.... then...!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are an evil, evil, evil, EVIL woman, you know that right??? I'm going to be sending you mental pokes for the next six hours, because god knows I won't be getting any sleep tonight!!!!!

(...nonetheless, the jump my heart gave when I saw that you'd updated was *probably* worth it. Barely...!!)

Date: June 26, 2010 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10: Very Good Wrist Action

(I'm going to engage in a little rambly story here; bear with me, I do havea point...)

Right now, I'm working as an au pair for the summer before I go back to uni in September. I saw you'd updated yesterday and pulled up the chapter amid squeals of delight, but before I could read I had to go and collect my charge from school and then bring him to the library.

When I got back the door to my room had somehow locked itself from the inside. No idea how, or why. And I was standing there, with literally everything I possessed in the world except the clothes I had on my back behind a locked door for god knew how long, and you know what the premier thought in my mind was? "AAAAAAAARGH I'm going to have to wait ANOTHER DAY to read that update!!!"

I don't know whether this speaks more about the worrying state of my mental health or about the quality of your writing... would very much like to believe it's the latter though. All night last night and all morning it was like an itch that I couldn't scratch, and it was the FIRST thing I did when I eventually regained access to my room (thanks to a very nice little French man and a very long ladder). As I suspected, it was worth the wait... and THEN some.

Thank you, thank you and thank you some more. What a beautiful piece. Genuinely just beautiful. I can't believe we only have 2/3 chapters left... praying very hard that you have something else planned right after. You are my absolute favourite. :)



Author's Response:

Wow, love your rambly story, thanks for sharing!  I just love the image of the nice little French man with the long ladder, brought a big smile to my face.  I'm so glad you enjoyed the chapter, I was kind of nervous about this one.  I'm tossing around an idea for an All Human story, but not sure yet whether it will happen.

Thanks again for your kind words, they are much appreciated :)

 
Summary:

This looks incredibly promising :) I really like your Bella - she's spunkier than most versions - and the snarky humour you have flowing through it (loved the "rinse, repeat" thing). Also love the idea of Edward as a mechanic. Looking forward to more! :)
