I love it!  You can't help but wonder what the Cullens were thinking about Bella coming to visit!  I love the thought Carlisle is putting into making Bella as comfortable as possible.  So sweet.  Can't wait to read the rest of the family's thoughts!

Oh I love Esme!  Her thoughts show just how happy and changed Edward was because of Bella.  I love how well you have captured each of the characters so far!

I just adore your take on the family!!  The interaction is just perfect!  I can't wait for an update! 

 
Summary:

Bella is home alone and trying to distract herself while Edward is hunting. With a little help from Alice, some catchy tunes and a guest appearance from Emmett, she's bound to be sufficiently distracted!

I do not own any of the characters (sigh), Stephenie Meyer does.

I am loving your Edward!  The whole goodnight scene...  loves it.

 
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.

Is it wrong to find Mike'a pain so hilarious?  :)  Can't wait to read about Bella's homework.



Author's Response:

Hi There Lovely_Penguin, If you like mike suffering I'm the girl for you. I love, love, love putting Mike in humiliating situations and will continue to do so every chance I can. I should warn you that I interrupt the story in a few chapters by telling the story behind the story. You'll see one homework assignment and learn that she as another and then I have Edward having a flashback and thinking about their relationship which explains the real reason he's so hesitant to have sex, the real reason why Jacob is trying to stop the wedding, the reason the Volturi are showing up to a human wedding, etc. And I should warn you the section is long and I'm not done with it yet. Once I'm done with it, the story will pick up right where it left off and you will, if I pull this off right, have a different interpretation of elements in the front end. (fingers crossed). The first Heart of Darkness chapter will be dark and things will get lighter and funnier from there. So just wanted to give you a heads up so you don't get whiplash. But I torture Mike throughout the story and particularly in the Heart of Darkness arc. Promise.

Thanks so much for your review and I'm delighted you are enjoying the story. I had a lot of fun with the chapters. :) Books

Fantastic job on the flashback to the whole tribe/Cullen history lesson.  I am so caught up in your story... I love all the detail you put in!  Can't wait for an update!  I need a Dream Edward of my own.  But then again a Starched Shirt Edward would be would provide an interesting conquest...  :)   



Author's Response:

Hi there Lovely_Penguin!

Thanks so much for reviewing! I am glad you liked my explanation of the tribe. We will understand a bit more in the next chapter as to why they are the way they are. Primarily I'm arguing that when you depend on an oral tradition of secrecy to pass down generational knowledge, you run into problems. And the wolves have serious problems. They don't realize how serious. I am working on an update and as usual have written too much so am editing. I will do my best to get the next chapter up as soon as humanly possible - Real Life is kicking me with work too and I don't want to post it until it's "ready". It's currently simmering.

I'm torn on who would be more fun, Dream Edward or Starched Shirt. Why decide? Why not both?

Dream Edward is batting his eyelashes at you and saying, "Bella likes my lips better..."

Disc Jockeys by casket4mytears Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 372]
Summary:

Disc Jockeys

2009 Nominee, Best AU AH, Most Romantic Moment, Indie TwiFic Awards

2009 Nominee, Character You Wish Was Real (Jasper), The Faithful Shipper Awards

A small-town music store... Several music-obsessed slackers with a penchant for sexual misadventures, disastrous love lives and a little too much alcohol... Customers with horrible taste in CDs... Thousands in missing cash deposits... and Carlisle's not even supposed to be here today!

Disc Jockeys is the story of Velvet Records, one of the few remaining independent music stores in Washington State. From shoplifters to has-been singers, from franchise threats to the complicated love lives of the inhabitants within, the employees of Velvet handle it all, under the watchful gaze of Carlisle, their long-suffering manager.

This AU, AH is a spoof of Empire Records blended with healthy cynicism of the Clerks vein. If you haven't seen Empire Records, have no fear; this fic assumes you haven't the faintest idea what "Damn The Man - Save The Empire!" means (but SEE IT because it's an awesome flick).

This fic is rated NC-17 for underage drinking, drug use, sexy naughty times, dark issues including sexual assault and abuse and language. Slightly OOC for some players, canon pairings apply (eventually).

Okay, one of the lurkers here!   I'm loving your story.  So much so that I had to track down a copy of Empire Records!  But, the twists you have added to make the story your own make it just that much better.  Can't wait to see what the next chapter holds!



Author's Response:

Awesome!  I think that's five people now who've snagged it because of the story, to my knowledge.  Empire is LOVE!  Thank you so much for popping out of the shadows and saying such kind words!  Hopefully you'll have more by Friday, maybe even sooner!

Author's Response:

Oh I adore Konstantine too!  It's so strange;  I only heard that song a few months ago!  I've been listening to Jack's Mannequin and random Something Corporate songs for two years and just NOW heard it.  And I know I sure as hell would turn into a puddle of girl and love it if a guy sang that song to me...

Wow.  That was incredibly hot.  Not to mention incredibly well written.  I am so sad that the journey is over!  You have done such a fantastic job with this story.  I'd love to see some one shots for these characters if ever the inspiration hits! :)



Author's Response:

Thank you so much!  I thought we'd end the way we started:  Edward and Bella getting their sexy on.  And I think one shots are inevitable.  I do have to attend to my Alice world next though, which you are welcome to tag along to!
