Hi and welcome to my bio!


Out here in the real world, I'm an INTJ (according to the MBTI) with delusions of grandeur. My educational and employment backgrounds are varied, but I do have an advanced degree and have worked at all sorts of jobs.  I occupy myself as a novelist, writing historical and inspirational fiction, as well as short stories from time to time.  Married for more than twenty years, I have two sons and enjoy all my guys immensely.


In the fandom, I write Canon and AU, sometimes venturing into the All-Human territory.  One-shots, multi-chapters, stand-alones and series, there is little I haven't tried - for me, the fandom is a land of What Ifs in the Twiverse.

Thanks Roo, for the amazing banner! 

And more keep coming in!  Thanks to m81170 for this lovely piece of art:

Here's another amazing pic that fits in with Dark Side of the Moon perfectly -thank you to JohannaL for ID'ing the author:  http://smirks-works.livejournal.com/ check out her (I assume) other manips - she's a genius!

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,

blondieakarobin

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.

Wow.

A hundred times.

This was one of the very first stories I found in fandom when I finally FOUND fandom and I am so exceedingly tickled that you're making it available for us Kindle owners. :)

This has been a brilliant examination of Edward's mind during New Moon (and your timing of its conclusion is impeccable) and I am just so in awe.

Thank you for all the time and work and research and effort you have put into this story.  It's brilliant.

Author's Response:

Thanks so much - it was a real push to get this done in time for the movie!

I just posted the kindle-compatible version at http://www.mediafire.com/?tj14jjmkrjq  All you have to do is copy it to the documents directory on your kindle and it should show up in your library.  It even has a working TOC, I hope!

Again, thanks for your wonderful review - it's all the neat people I've met that has made this literary journey truly wonderful!

You know, as much problem as she had with her relationship to Edward (in this AU), at least her thoughts as feelings were as private as she could make them if she could keep them off her face. 

With Jasper, she has to be feeling so much more exposed.

The Cullen boys go hunting. Jasper can't stop quoting the Princess Bride, Emmett can't stop quoting Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Edward, rather put out, responds with Shakespeare. Hilarity ensues! Cowritten with the awesomely funny Roo and the Edward-centric blondie!

Amazingly in canon - believe it or not!

Seducing Ms Swan by Rialle Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3026]
Summary:

 

AU Post-New Moon.

Bella never jumped, Alice never had her vision and Edward never came back. Six years later, Bella is struggling to make a new life for herself as a teacher in Rochester, New York. How will she fare when a very familiar student crops up in her classroom? Will she be able to remain professional, or will old ties get in the way?

Edward is convinced that getting Bella back is just a matter of 'persuasion', but Bella isn't prepared to be that cooperative. What's more, she's in the grip of a dark secret which threatens to prevent her from loving ever again.

Bella Swan is slipping under...

Nice one of Bella to call Jacob on his personal fears!  Very well done of her. 

Nice portrayal of interspecies tension, too!

I don't see anyone here as being OOC. AND I'm really glad Jacob's wife has a "normal" prosaic sort of name, if I haven't said so before. 

And a personal note:  Reality Rules.  Even in fandom.  So handle your reality and don't apologize for it.  Just use it for source material! :D

I inhaled this entire story and am so entirely gratified.  Thank you for taking such good care of everyone's "ooc" ness.  I enjoy the realm of fan fic and appreciate when precious characters are allowed to, ah, stretch themselves in other ways, but it is much more (to me) delightful to find them be whom I thought them to be in the books.

This is a surprisingly moving story.  Not until (for me) that last, crucial paragraph, but then, yes

 

I confess, I've seen Mike as kind of an opportunistic lonely heart kinda guy, but you've shown a possibility for a Romance Hero here.  Young, but with potential.

 

Brava!

 
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!!!

Oh wow. 

Your story came highly recommended and I haven't been able to get the grin off my face. 

 

Brilliantly conceived and fascinatingly (is that word?) executed, you've created an enthralling adventure.  Love it.

 

And yes, I really loved the monster. *grin*

 
Summary:

 

Bella Swan spent the first two years of her life in Forks developing a friendship with Jacob Black that finally turned into something more.  As she begins her senior year of high school, a new family moves to town and Bella slowly begins to question the path she thought her life would follow.  Sometimes there is a difference between what you think you need and what you never knew you wanted.  Takes place during the timeframe of New Moon and Eclipse.  J/B at first, but eventually E/B.

Come clean. You know you structured this entire chapter just so you could say:

 

   “Oh, I wouldn’t put too much stock in the idea that he’s given up on you.  Just give him the word, and I’m sure he would come running.”  Edward was teasing me, but there was an edge to his tone.   

 

            I made a face.  “Bite me.” 

 

Now, be honest... ;-)

I think the Billy confrontation worked very well for me. 

Your version of Bella has more chutzpah than I am accustomed to, but I think that works, too, with the place you've put her. 

And a belated AWESOME PHONE CALL TO MOM set of kudos, too.

 
Reviewer: LJ Summers Signed

Oh! I totally love that Jacob phased in front of her. Not that she got hurt, but that it happened like that.  Very cool.

 

Yes, I'm likely a sadist, but there you go.

Okay. Officially dying of anticipation.

FTR:  I'm in the Bella's Being a Bonehead group.  But I was much much happier when she finally called to him.  AFT, for sure. ;-)

 

Somehow, "doomed and destined" should sound corny, but you make it work.  I love it.
