Updated November, 2009

This story is now COMPLETE!

Dark Side of the Moon is my version of New Moon from Edward’s point of view.  Witness how Edward agonized over leaving Bella, hunted for Victoria, faced the Volturi, and came to realize that with Bella was where he was meant to be. 

This tormented story has been a part of my life for about a year and a half – and what a ride it’s been!  Meant to be canon and in character, I hope you enjoy angsty Edward and his suffering during New Moon.  As unhappy as Bella was during this time, Edward suffered so much more (I think).  So be sure and crack open a fresh box of tissues before reading!

 Thank you to everyone for all the reviews, especially to those of you who reviewed each and every chapter!  Your support and loyalty have been the driving force to me getting this project finished – and I hope it’s lived up to all of your expectations.

Love you all,

PS.  As one last thank you, I’ve posted a formatted, printable copy of Dark Side of the Moon at http://bit.ly/2vLHMi, as will also post as an electronic version suitable for viewing on a kindle or MobiReader.  I’m also posting a ‘Director’s Cut’ that includes citations of all of Bella’s quotes from Twilight, research notes, and even funny comments from my betas in this version in the same directory.

Use of the dialog from the series is just for clarity - Stephenie Meyer owns all things twilight!  I'm making absolutely nothing from this work.

How about some rope, some spray paint, and a big dose of "stfu Tanya?" :)

Haha, nice one.  I didn't expect it to be that hellacious for her, but that was fun to read.

I hope you have something really diabolical planned for Tanya. =)

 
Summary:

cover banner

Bella went cliff diving, but it didn't turn out so well. She broke her back. A decade later, Edward reappears in her life on the same night she loses her best friend and husband to a freak accident. Now a graduate student in Women's Studies, Bella isn't thrilled to see him. But when the Cullens re-enter Bella's life, they bring change, hope, and a new joint project that will require all their expertises.

Also, you can find a SPANISH version here:

Special Update:

For personal reasons (a ridiculously full teaching schedule and being recently put in charge of a bi-annual local conference and ongoing project), I am no longer able to reply to reviews and questions. But that said, I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to EVERYBODY for the wonderful feedback and kind words that have been sent my way since the completion of this story in August 2009. I do still check my messages about once every 1-2 weeks and read *every* review. I just have too many to reply to anymore, but I didn’t want anyone to think I was ignoring her/him in particular, or didn’t appreciate readers taking time to leave a review. Writing this story was tons of fun and I’m thrilled readers seem to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the chance to write it. I can’t tell you how flattering that is!!! As I used to reply to all reviews, I feel a little badly about this decision, but work has been requiring virtually all of my time since the new (academic) year began.

Best to all of you in 2010 and beyond!

Wow, just started this story today.  I love the intro, very unexpected.  I also like the deep South twists.

I'd be pissed too.  Of all the times to show up.

Different enough to be interesting...I'm really liking this story.



Author's Response:

Thank you!!!

I love the job for Rosalie...it fits better than just traipsing around after Emmett.  She's such a strong woman I could see her doing this.

 
Reviewer: mareimbrium Signed

Nice research.  Your little stories and tidbits about the towns you are writing add a solid background to your story.

Did I miss something?  What is Alice's job?



Author's Response:

Alice is going to start a business that deals in clothing accessories (e.g., weaving and knitting) and other art made by local artists, especially women.

You really give an excellent background to your characters.  Some of them feel like they could step right out of the pages.  Thanks for fleshing out Emmett.  He's always been a favorite. =)



Author's Response:

Emmett is a favorite of mine too!

 
Reviewer: mareimbrium Signed

Hahaha! She made him take out the trash.

 
Reviewer: mareimbrium Signed

Even then, Edward was still watching over her.  It's a bit creepy, having an ex boyfriend and your husband carrying on a long term conversation about you without your knowledge.

I love the Teslas and I can picture Rosalie driving one.  Good call!



Author's Response:

Teslas are beautiful cars, and a true mechanic would appreciate one, I think.

 
Reviewer: mareimbrium Signed

Love the last part. 

 
Reviewer: mareimbrium Signed

The evolution of the characters is fun to see.  You've got everyone involved and you acknowledge how the whole idea of a "family" like the Cullens would drive anyone crazy eventually.  I like how you've got Esme involved in something instead of just being Stepford mum and wife of the year.



Author's Response:

Hee.  The treatment of Esme as a sort of cardboard stand-up is a bit boring.  I had fun trying to imagine her as a real woman with a past and some gifts of her own!

Rosalie-Bella interaction is good.  I always felt like Rose was overlooked in the series.



Author's Response:

She was!

Awww, the Christmas scene is too cute.  I like the crystal ball pixie for Alice, and the deer.

An author that answers reviews!  <3  I didn't think it was too lemony at all.  You've done a good job in building their relationship up in a realistic fashion, instead of diving into the ExB too quickly as some stories do.  I like having an older Bella.  She has lived her own life instead of being a little girl wrapped up in Prince Charming.



Author's Response:

Thank you!  And I've been trying to reply to at least some reviews on older chapters, although as you'll see when you reach it, on the recent chapters that I've been posting rapidly, I've asked for a bit of grace, so I can focus on editing the end (which is entirely written) and which I'm trying to get up before the semester starts.  Normally, I answer ALL reviews.  It's just been a little hectic lately. :-)

"But if you were going to eat me, I think you went a long way outta your way for a meal. Never heard of nobody from Helen calling Jacksonville for takeout." Awesome, my keyboard has pepsi on it now from laughing.  Your characters are so spot on.

Mythic Creature Morning...hahahah!  I love how you cut the seriousness with unexpected little bits of humor. 



Author's Response:

Thanks!  I had a little fun with Charlie here.

Sorry, I already reviewed, but I have to say.  Excellent, frequent posts and answering your readers rank you WAY up there.  So many (even those with under 100 reviews) don't take the time to acknowledge the reviews, not even in an author's note or something.  So thank you for taking time out to let us know you appreciate it.  Thank you for sharing your awesome story with us.  I love Martha, the unconventional religious figure and how deftly you balance the emotions so you're not drowning us in any one thing.  I most certainly hope you write more stories...you rock!



Author's Response:

Thank you!  The ff-net reviews have started to kick back in, so I'll probably return soon to just replying to those with questions, but I do believe in replying as much as I can!

Is breaking her leg possibly going to help her walk in the future?  Or maybe she will be so damaged they have to change her?  Just throwing some stuff out there.
