Beta-reader:

I'm a part time accountant, full time wife and mommy.  My hubby and I have been blessed with a beautiful daughter and a precious infant son.


I used to write incessantly back in high school and college, even going so far as to have several poems and short stories published... but life got in the way and I fell out of the habit.  As with most talents, when you don't use it, you lose it.  I always regretted the loss of the words...


Being on maternity leave when my son was born in March of 2009, and then having my hours cut to part time left me with a LOT of time on my insomniac hands, and I started reading all of the wonderful stories here at Twilighted.


Somewhere in a sleep deprived fog I was listening to a Heidi Newfield song and had an overwhelming desire to start writing again... and my first fanfic story idea was born.  I've since started a second story, and I'm alternating back and forth on getting them written. 


I'm hoping to have the first one finished and start submitting soon, but I have to go back and do a massive rewrite on three chapters because PPD kind of took the story places it wasn't meant to go.


 


Twilight-wise... I am an E/B girl all the way.  I just realized that in everything I have written or am working on, if Nessie isn't part of the story then Jacob is the bad guy.  Sorry wolf=packers... no Furry love here.


 


**I have a curse.  I have these awesome stories, I get 20 or so chapters in and then I can't finish.  Still trying.  I know I promised to alert a few people if I ever got to the point of posting...**


 


**Well, I'm still trying to get over the speedbumbs in Unrequited, but my other multi-chapter needs massive reworking.  The post partum depression that initially derailed me did too much structural damage to that story and I need to basically start over on it.  I think I'll wait til after Unrequited is being posted though...  It's all just a big mash in my head.**


 


**I think I made a breakthrough in my multi-chap!  WooHoo, go me!  So recap... Multi-chap that is about 75% done now, another one that is languishing until I can figure out how to fix all of the damage my PPD caused it, and three one shots that I work on when I get stuck on chapters.  Good thing I only sleep three hours a night or I'd never get anything done!  GO TEAM INSOMNIACS!**


 


PS:  Just in case anybody wonders... I have a hard time reviewing a story before it's complete.  I can love it with a fiery passion and still not be able to reveiw it effectively.  If I'm reading a story of yours, be patient with me... you'll hear from me at some point I promise!!!!!!

OK, I started reading this around 4 pm and it's now 5:15am my time.  That is how much I couldn't quit.  I took breaks to fix dinner, bathe, read stories, and put the kids down.  Other than that, I have been completely glued to this story.

It was swesome on so many levels and I'm so tired I can't even begin to give you a proper review.  I just had to let you know how absolutely enthralled I have beeth with your story, and I'll come back to do a proper review after some sleep.

I'm out!

LOLOLOL!!!!  I have done that EXACT same thing to my husband more times than I care to count over the last four years.  When the kids scream, nookie is DONE dude.  Sorry. 

It really is true that small kids = no foreplay.  People with children under the age of 10 have to be masters of the 5 minute hook up.

 
Ethics Be Damned by krazyk85 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 914]
Summary:

 

Awesome banner made by my Beta xrxdanixrx...she is a genius and I can't stop staring at it...

 

“What are you thinking?” Edward asked me.

“I’m thinking about how big of a failure I am,” I answered truthfully.

We were still holding each other in his classroom and I realized quickly how dangerous that was...that was where Edward and I went wrong. The need we both felt to touch each other was costing us, and if I didn’t put a stop to it, well, I knew things were going to get worse way before they got better.

Edward narrowed his eyes at me disapprovingly. “You're not a failure, Bella.”

The furrow in his brow only increased as I put some distance between us. He reached out to bring me back in, but I shook my head stubbornly.

“I’m not running,” I assured him, “but we need to stop being so open. While I’m here, we need to at least pretend I’m your student.”

Edward ran his hands through his hair roughly and I envied him at that moment.  Only a minute had passed and I was already losing my resolve.

“She’s right, you know.”  

My body tensed to the voice that suddenly was in the room with us. It was unfamiliar and I couldn’t place it for the life of me, but this unknown voice was agreeing with me--which meant, this unknown person heard everything I said…

Oh shit, oh shit…

Bella Swan is a 28 year old woman who is a narcotics detective for the Seattle Police Department. Bella is assigned to go undercover as a high school student to bring down a massive drug ring fronted by the elusive Drug Lord Aro Volturi. Bella soon finds herself falling for her English teacher Edward Masen...

 

 

Edward Masen is instantly attracted to this new student, but can't pursue a relationship with a young girl.

 Will these two keep things in perspective or will their ethics be damned?

 

 Beautiful banner made by SoapyMayhem....Thanks girl!!!

The Transfer by bannerday Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3915]
Summary:

 

Bella transfers to the University of Washington and lives in a dorm with the Twilight usuals. The incredibly beautiful guy with the coppery-bronze hair is such a jerk when their lives first collide, but they cannot ignore the fact that they are drawn to each other. However, Bella has a boyfriend back home and Edward doesn't plan to get involved. A terrible experience has made him reluctant to form any attachments. But sometimes you find what you didn't even know you were looking for.

A little angst and lots of romance. Humor with a nosy Emmett, Rose, Jasper and Alice. Add a potential stalker. Top it all off with undeniable sexual tension and eventually some very hot sexy-times. BPOV and EPOV

Reviewer: mrsgunsage Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: August 30, 2010 Title: Chapter 47: Chapter 47: Good Times Then and Now

Why with the angst at teh end of a perfectly good chapter?  I thought we were with the fluff and happy puppies and unicorns break-dancing and such... why upset?

 

I have no guesses as to why.  If I had a hot guy dancing with me and telling me he loved me there would be no upset... unfortunately my husband hates dancing and he definitely has White Man's disease.



Author's Response:

Hi Mrs. G!

Oh you'll see. I had to tie it in to the next chapter. If I didn't put that last line there, it would sound really lame. I don't know, it's hinting at what's ahead. Next chapter will take a more serious turn. But it will be a good chapter. And the unicorns and puppies, break-dancing in the garden with the multi-colored Koala bears will be back. Oh, wait, no, not the multi-colored koalas. That's something else.

Wait, are YOU married to MY husband??? It sure sounds like it. LOL

Okay, let's you and me go out dancing and leave the boys at home this weekend, K?

Thanks for the review.

Maybe I should carry a bat and some balls around... that has to be a better way to let out the aggression than my personal favorite of screaming at people until they are a quivering pile of tears on the floor.



Author's Response:

I'm with you. Your approach is so much more portable. Really, it's the travel version of what Edward does. Kicking and throwing things are also time-tested and you don't need any extra equipment for either of those activities--youo just use whatever is at hand.

Thanks for the giggle.

I'm glad everybody was getting along so well so that Bella won't feel like she has to give anybody up to make someone else happy.



Author's Response:

Hi mrsgunsage!

Remember me? *waves* :) O  M  G ! ! ! It's been a MONTH since you reviewed chapter 72 of The Transfer! Between the end of the school year and a new story continuing and having those stories on three different sites...I must have had some massive brain malfunction. I had no idea I never replied to so many reviews. :(

And now I've got a third story going...so I'll get even more behind because that one is so absorbing because of its ridiculousness. You might enjoy it: Fan Fiction, Sex Gods and Single Girls. It's funny and very different.

I'm not done with the characters from The Transfer yet. I still think about them in various stages of their lives. It's just kind of hard to write all that disjointed stuff down. I've got the winter chapter about half done and plan to work on that today. Hopefully within a week.

Thank you so much for the review and again, I'm soooooooo sorry I was soooooooo slooooooooooowwww.

"Well, no." I clarify. "We are only biology partners."

"OH! I get," he nearly shouts. "Like benefriends."

"WHAT?!" I yell, "NO!" I pull the phone away from my ear and press the TALK button to end the call.

The phone rings again.

"No Jacob! That is NOT what is going on between Edward and I, AT ALL, you perv!"
