Hi.  I'm Sare.  If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to send me a message, or follow me on Twitter (sareliz).  I've begun to post DESS on Twilighted, so that's exciting.


In the meantime if you're curious, feel free to wander over to fanfiction.net/~sareliz, where my bio is far more engaging.  (What can I say? ::shrugs:: I was feeling it that day.)

::sighs::

This has been the most amazing rollercoaster ride.  This fic has, hands down and with no close contenders, been the most emotionally provoking piece of fiction I've ever read.

I wait with baited breath for your next installment.

 
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.

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!

Okay.  Yes, I have just read this entire story, up unto this  point, in one sitting  Actually, I think I got up to grab some leftovers, and possibly to pee at one point, but that is a blur.

What is not a blur is how wonderful, how enlightened, how interesting and how captivating your story is.  You have taken every part of canon that merited scrutiny and twisted it into shape, even as you provided several different reasonings for it through the various points of view, and even left some questions up for debate - but then debated them quite deftly.

Even though Twilight appeals to many adults, I felt as I read it (yes, I'm an adult) that several times I needed to suspend my disbelief, and I'm not a great big fan of having to do that more than once.  Beyond asking me to suspend my disbelief there was once - in New Moon as Edward was leaving Bella - that I very nearly threw the book across the room as Edward violated Bella's autonomy left and right.  As a matter of fact, the first time I read NM, I read the first fifty or one hundred pages, and then skipped to the last fifty, once I could bear to pick the book back up, several months later.  I then continued on and read the next two.  Much later I returned to read what I'd missed in NM and found I hadn't missed much after all.

All this to say that your writing is lovely, your awareness of modes of communication (a hobby of mine), social work, medicine, neurology, gender issues, racial issues, ability issues, and theology is so refreshing.  I'm so grateful.

Thank you.



Author's Response:

Wow!  I think you just made my night!  That is so sweet -- and makes me sound a lot more knowledgeable about things than I really am. Ha!  (I had to look up a lot of stuff.  I'm just good at that, after being a journalist.)

But boy do I know what you mean about NM.  So many things in it annoyed me.  I thought Bella had finally learned a few things and their relationship was equalling out by Eclipse, but Breaking Dawn was a big disappointment. After talking to some other friends (also adult fans) about Bella, Edward, love and other stuff, plus reading some NM AU stories that really *bugged* me, I figured maybe I should stop complaining and just try my hand at it myself.  I don't have any room to talk until I put my money where my mouth is. :-)

So thank you again, and I hope you like the rest of it.  Things are about to get ... interesting.  Well, a couple more chapters, but not many.

This fic is just *delicious*.  Delicious, I tell you.

 
Summary:

Correct Banner

What if in the beginning Edward lied to everyone about being in love with Bella? What if originally it actually was all about Bella's scent? And what would happen then if accidentally, much against his will, Edward kind of sort of fell head over heels in love with this not-so-dull human girl?

This is an AU of the Twilight Saga using an entirely different plot as to how, why, and when Edward and Bella fell in love. It offers a different explanation for what was so special about Bella Swan, why Edward vigilantly enforced those physical boundaries, why there's tension between the Cullens and the wolves, and why Edward behaved the way he did not only with Bella but with his family. Expect romance, mystery, angst, and humor. Dark Edward.

Canon Pairings, No BxExJ, OOC.

This story is rated NC-17 because of occasional naughty language, violence (or implied violence) against humans, vampires, werewolves, animals, insects, minding-their-own-business-pajamas, entities, books, coffee tables, leather recliners, bridges, sword ferns, shrubs, rocks, and worst of all....trees. It is also rated NC-17 due to excessive snarkiness by Edward, references to underage drinking, practical jokes and/or enthusiastic tormenting of secondary characters particularly Mike Newton, Jacob Black, and Charles Swan. It also is rated NC-17 due to sexual content.

 Thanks to Mizra for the banners.

Summary:

Four weeks before her wedding to Edward, Bella is frustrated. She knows there's little-to-no chance of getting him to bend his rules and boundaries now, but there's no harm in fantasizing about what could happen later.

She's surprised to find she might be able to cross some things off earlier than she thought...

Oh... my goodness.  Right, so it was impossible for me to have read this in one sitting.  I had to have human moments, and I did eventually sleep a few hours.  But please, let me just say how much I have enjoyed this utterly delectable fic.

Um, wow.  The characterizations are beautiful, the descriptions stunning and their connect sends chills up my spine.  (Literally.  Just happened.)  I find myself shrieking with laughter, encouraging the characters, saying the lines out loud, and gasping things like, 'He did NOT!'

So, thank you, thank you, thank you.  I so very much look forward to the rest of the story. :)
