I am a 39 year-old married Canuck girl, with a steady job, 2 cats, 2 dogs and no kids. My hubby is kid enough but I am lucky that way as it allows me to take pleasure in my hobbies with little or no guilt! We live just outside of Ottawa Canada in the country. Edward and family would be welcome to visit as there is lots of wildlife to sustain their vegetarian diet!!


In case you have not guessed...I am obsessed with anything and everything Twilight. I have enjoyed lurking here immensely reading some of the wonderful stories posted and I only recently decided to post one of my own. A Different Kind of Moon is my first attempt at FanFic, although I have written original stuff for my own enjoyment since I was in highschool. ADKM is definitely a work in progress and I would be totally lost without my wonderful beta, ChangedbyEdward, and the support of the other wonderful friends I have made through the fanfic world!

Summary:

Click here to watch the video trailer created by lilabut.

At a pivotal moment in New Moon, a simple choice alters the course of Bella's future, and she is forced to endure several more weeks before Edward's eventual return to Forks.  Victoria, a pack of young werewolves, and the blossoming of an undeniable bond become the least of Bella's concerns as she undergoes her own supernatural transformation. It turns out vampires and werewolves aren’t the only things that go bump in the night.  Edward/Bella/Jacob

I can not believe you left us hanging there!!!  Agh what a cliffie!!  And now we have to wait.....sigh......

Best of luck with your finals and the one-shot and I for one will be anxiously awaiting the next chap!!!



Author's Response:

Seriously? You can't believe that I would do that??? Lol, I thought I was kinda infamous for shamelessly pulling out the cliffie. ;)

Thank you for the luck (I very desperately need it).

Ugh...my Team Edward stance is telling me......NO don't read any further but your great writing skills are urging me to continue....so I will in the belief that Bella will come to her senses..LOL



Author's Response:

LOL, I hope you manage to soldier on.  If not, thank you for the feedback you've left me up to this point. :)

LOL...pretty arrogant little pup isn't he....you still have me hooked....I am starting the Edward chant in my head though...LOL

 



Author's Response:

Chant away, my dear. :D

You've still got quite a few chapters before Edward's return, though. Thanks!

Would it really be bad for me to say that I am siding with Paul on the bet....LOL

Still a great story though....even with all the werewolf time.



Author's Response:

I <3 Paul. I'm sure he'd be please to have your support.

Hmmm...that was sweet.  And I know Jake loves her but he needs to be honest about the whole imprinting issue...if it happens before her TRUE LOVE comes back...it is not gonna be pretty....on to the next chap!

 
Reviewer: eyes of topaz Signed
Date: April 04, 2010 Title: Chapter 10: Nightmares

hmmm the dream was very interesting.  And I am placing a wager that the woman in the dream was being burned for being a witch.  Is Bella a witch?  And thank goodness about Edward.....the mantra gets louder each time Jacob touches her.....LMAO.  Great chap!!!



Author's Response:

You're definately onto it with the whole witch thing. Now I'm gonna go read your other reviews and respond to them at once. :D

Actually I didn't think it was too overtop at all...it really rolled with the chapter and you had to know that Leah's change was coming and if Bella was around-she was going to be in trouble.....AWESOME chapter!!

another great chapter.  I can't even imagine how angry Edward is going to be when he sees Bella injured...and what is with the vanishing bit?  I am still considering that she might be a witch.  Love Emily's character...very sweet

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But where did Jake go?  Wasn't very responsible of him to leave here there on her own....what if Victoria had shown up?  And did Edward see Bella doing nasty things with Jacob???

My eyes are nearly crossing but must go on!!

 

 
Reviewer: eyes of topaz Signed
Date: April 05, 2010 Title: Chapter 16: The Morning After

Wow....kudos to Jacob for his honesty.  I really feel for him because you know he thinks she is his own world but if he is honest with himself it is only a matter of time before he imprints.

And the whole witch storyline is very cool....anxious to see where you are going with it.

Where is Edward!! LOL  I can't imagine he would take too kindly to Jake man-handling Bella in her room...although I know he doesn't have any say in the matter.......yet!!!!  AGH!~!!!!!

You captured Carlisle PERFECTLY!!  Loved the interaction between the two of them and thought that the conversation in the lunchroom between Angela, Jessica and Bella was very authentic!

The visual of Edward standing in front of the bike was hilarious - it was just so Edward....another great chap!

Date: April 05, 2010 Title: Chapter 20: Agreement

Poor Alice.....but I understand why Bella is hesitant.  Interesting that Bella and Jake are going bowling with Angela and Ben.  Still missing Edward...the chant gets louder all the time...

Yeah Yeah....I know he's there but they haven't even talked yet!  And what is with Bella and Felicity????

 
Reviewer: eyes of topaz Signed
Date: April 05, 2010 Title: Chapter 21: Kept Promises

UGH!!!!!  I can not believe she slept with him!!!!  OK....it is out I said it.  Otherwise the chapter was great and I still love the story even though it is way too much Jake and not enough Edward so far...

The boy......is it Riley???  If yes, then she is in quite a bit of trouble.....and the handprint is completely confusing me.

MUST READ MORE!

 
Reviewer: eyes of topaz Signed

OMG......she can't change???  So they can't be together forever??? Or is her being a witch going to give her eternal life??  OMG....

Date: April 05, 2010 Title: Chapter 25: Precarious

First on a personal note....congrats on the decision to take Creative Writing as a Major - I really think you are making a great decision.  You are very talented - this story is strong proof!!

Now.....I can't believe I am caught up!!!  AGH!! Now I have to wait for updates...one chap at a time!  I really need to make a rule for myself to only read completed stories! 

I am still hoping for an Edward Bella romance here??  Am I crazy?  I thought for sure when Angela came up to Bella, she was going to be the other student getting the interview from Salem.....very interesting...can't wait to see where you are going with this!!



Author's Response:

Well, I want to congratulate you one making it this far without dying. ;) It really seemed like you were agony for most of this, lol.

You are not crazy. This is BELLA we're talking about. She can only try to dither on whether or not to marginalize Edward's place in her life for so long. They really need a chance to talk some more I think. I THINK that conversation will make its way into the next chapter. As long as the characters dont try revolting again.

Yay, I'm glad that my Calisle meets your standards. He's one of my favorites. I also hope that Edward's not comming off too OOC. I struggle with writing his character.

You were right about that boy in the woods being Riley. But I don't think Bella or anyone else will ever figure out his name in this story because I doubt Victoria will ever have a reason to bring it up.

Thank you so much for all of the feedback you left me on each chapter and for the congratulations on my choice of major.  I appreciate the support more than you know. :D

Standing Alone by right2write Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 268]
Summary:
Banner"He's gone." It is something of a mantra for me. Edward left me in the woods years ago. It is hard to recall how many months I spent in a walking coma but one day I awoke from it determined to live all on my own and vowed never again to let thoughts of Edward and his wayward family wound my heart again. It seemed to work for a while. By sheer determination I willed them out of my heart and mind, until my final year of college. A gift from a friend changed everything. A simple CD downloaded from a webpage and burned onto a generic looking Disc held them, melodies of a wounded heart. From the piano Alice tiptoed and twirled across my mind brandishing her contagious joy like a sword into my heart. Other songs, seemingly musical representations of a family that was almost mine, tore into my mind and heart haunting me. It became an addiction for me. I listened every night. I listened on the long drive to California to my new job, convinced it would somehow end the pain with over exposure to emotions long since buried. Until one night my window was left open and dreams crept in and I cast the music away. But I was too late. Somehow it had called them to me. But my wounds were healed and my life in a new place had no room for them in the sunshine. The Cullens, however, each had something to say about my new life.

I own nothing Twilight it all belongs SM!
