Summary:

Honeymoon Suite

NOW COMPLETE!  We all wailed a collective 'ugh!' on the fade to black scenes during Edward and Bella's honeymoon, not to mention the frustratingly limited Jacob POV.  This canon story fills in all the holes that were left by SM -- mostly from Edward's detailed POV.

Enjoy a captivating look at the romance, emotions, music and imagery of Bella & Edward's honeymoon, the struggles of the pregnancy, the bliss over Edward hearing the unborn child's mind, the harrowing birth, and finally Edward's joy as he bonds with Nessie during Bella's transformation.

DEAD CONFEDERATES BLOG (Go here for everything you ever wanted to know about the DC vampire crew, including all the chapters with songs, brilliant fan-art, slideshows, announcements, etc): http://deadconfeds.wordpress.com/

Rebelward Without a Cause (DC outtakes) Blog: http://rebelward.wordpress.com/


In the dirty south, Eddie’s a sexy, shit kickin' son-of-a-gun; a one-hundred-and-some-year-old vampire raising hell with his brothers Jizzper and Bubba.  The good ol’ boys are brought up by their bootstraps with the advent of the crystal ball totin’ thief, Alice, the vigilante waitress Rose, and the lynchpin--Eddie’s cantata and aspiring taxidermist--Bella.

Amidst the jam-jar-drawlin’ accents, a slow and sultry seduction of sassy Bella, the knee-slappin’ humor of rapid buckshot quibbles, quips and wit, Eddie comes to life as never before.  And all the mud in the Mississippi can’t dampen the man burning within him as he pursues his woman, combats the circling attacks of the vulturous Volturi, and is pelted by Alice’s gnarly visions of a future with a vampire Bella who will either be the savior, or the assassin, of the Cullen clan.  

Dead Confederates is a light, funny, erotic read crackling under a terrifying vampire horror story, all set in Cainwhore, South Carolina.  C’mon along and ‘put some South in your mouth’.

 

Thank you Mer (frol223) for the summary idea!

I really like your plot but honestly your heavy southern dialogue is too much for me to wade through and I have lived in the south all my life and have more than a few dead confederates in my family tree!

Author's Response:

Yay for you and your family tree!

Bet it feels fuckin' awesome to not write but to Feel the Power!

Shame I don't give a fuck.

So move along, sister.

 
Summary:

 

 

 

 

 

We all believe that Edward and Bella are meant to be together...but what if there’s more to that than meets the eye?

 

What if there are forces at work that they don’t understand? How will they cope with events that have no discernable meaning?

 

This story starts out two weeks before Bella and Edward’s wedding. But, right away, things go wrong. They struggle with mishap after mishap, all the while wondering if they’re destined to be at the center of conflict and angst.

 

All the major characters of Twilight appear. Canon couples. Lemons in various chapters. This is a more realistic view of Edward and Bella’s relationship before the wedding. He certainly wouldn’t carry her off to a desert island alone, having never even touched her. They would have experimented a bit.

 

Eventually all characters get their Happily Ever After. I just drag them through hell before we get there. No characters die before their time.

 

And I’ve adhered to canon up until the story starts—Post Eclipse. After that, it diverges from SM’s version. So...no Renesmee. No pregnancy.

 

I’ve poured my heart and soul into this story. It took me over a year to complete. I thought about it constantly. For that hard work and diligence to form, grammar and style, I’d like just one tiny thing from you, the reader.

 

I’d like a review. If you love it, if you hate it, if you’re just indifferent and will never look at it again, I’d like to hear that. It’s not a lot to ask. So...I’ll say thanks in advance for the wonderful reviews you’ll leave after you read each chapter!

I just wanted to tell you that I have so enjoyed your story! I have been sneaking to read it at work which is no small task! I am sorry that I don't review each chapter but with 2 boys, a husband and a job sometimes I get side tracked! I just want to say thanks for the quality story! I appreciate the time that you are putting into it and I wanted you to know that you have provided me several wonderful hours of reading! Keep up the great work, hope you update soon! I get so frustrated when fics end as soon as Bella is transformed so I hope you continue on. I can't wait to see what happens when Bella's monster meets Edward's monster.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for such a nice review! I so appreciate that you took a second to let me know how you feel about the story. I have a family and a job as well, so I know how it is to juggle everthing you have to do with things you want to do. There's just not enough time for everything.

I agree that I am somewhat disappointed when fics end at Bella's change. This one will end when it ends, and I don't know when that will be. I don't think it will be over ten chapters, though.

When Bella's monster meets Edward's monster. Now, there's an idea I hadn't thought of! Thank you!

BTW I uploaded chapter 32 into the queue tonight!

Great chapter, glad there isn't too much angst!

 
Summary:

A mosaic freely drawn from book and movie, wanders into AU as the story unfolds ... ....

*

Showing is stronger than telling.  Forks was just like I remember it.  I felt the short little hairs on the back of my neck stand straight on end.  Cut your losses before they can become catastrophic.   “It’s not fair,” I say aloud.   The night wind swirls, lifting the fine surface powder from the tops of the snowdrifts, coating us in diamond dust.  

 


Then weave for us a garment of brightness

 

Moving to Forks, spending the last eighteen months of her childhood with a father she barely knew ... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

 

***

 

A/N about the rating: The narrative in this story ranges between PG-13 (most of it) and R (occasional language and occasional non-graphic reference to mature themes). An isolated technicality in a late chapter has necessitated changing the rating from R to NC-17, however R is a much better measure of the farthest outer limit of what the reader will encounter in this tale.

This is Twilight with a twist. Bella is the vampire, Edward is the human. This story will borrow some plotline from the book, but will be mostly AU.
Intrigue, seduction, murder, the Volturi...it cant get any better than that. Cannon Pairings. Varying POVs

Solar Midnight by LaRosada Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 457]
Summary:

 

One of the key events that creates the epic nature of the Edward/Bella love story is the moment that Bella’s scent first hits Edward, and Edward somehow resists.

But what if Edward’s self control had kicked in just a moment too late? What if his proximity to Bella once his conscience reawakened was just too much, and he couldn’t restrain himself. What if he bit her, and Bella had a new life forced on her, before she had any desire to live for an eternity?

Before she had experienced Forks High School, made friends, and re-connected with Jacob. Before she knew what Edward was. And most importantly, before they fell in love.

What would Twilight look like then?

This is the story of the seemingly insignificant moment that changed everything…

Hide and Drink by Savage Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 7582]
Summary:

Now Complete!

Bella’s blood was just too tempting to be ignored.  In this version of Twilight, Edward takes Bella on a sadistic journey with his monstrous side.  While Edward drags her around the world, barely keeping a step ahead of his frantic family, Bella battles the monster for possession of the gentler vampire inside her captor.  EPOV.

Winner of the Faithful Shipper Awards for best Alternate Universe.

Winner of The Vampies, Twilight Vampfic Awards for Best Dark Vamp.

Winner of the Immortal Sin Awards for Best Darkward and Hottest Dark Vamp Fic!

Thank you Lace for the Banner!

“There was no other blood like this.  Once she was gone, it would no longer be within my grasp.  But if I stopped now, she would heal.  Her body would make more.  The blood would replenish.  I could drink again.  The promise of more – it was the only incentive that could have caused me to stop.”

OK, I think Edward and Bella will end up stuck with the bad guys for at least awhile - long enough for Edward to clear his head.  Then our pair will need to figure out a way out of enforced servitude and out of their own problem with the singer issue.

Summary:

Edward and Bella

“Bella, I’m going to give you some privacy. I won’t go far, but I won’t listen either. I know you don’t want an audience, no matter which way you decide to go.”

Three years after his mysterious disappearance, Edward’s final words to Bella still haunt her every waking moment. For her parents, Bella tries to put the past behind her and start a new life but one phone call shatters her fragile new world.
