stories/2326/images/gonebanner.jpgWhat if the wolf pack hadn't interrupted Laurent before he bit Bella?  This is the story of Bella being changed despite Edward leaving her to prevent it from happening.

Rated for later chapters.  Just like in New Moon, Edward will make an appearance eventually!

I like it a lot... very interesting and realistic turn on the story.  You have a gift girl! I'm sad she didn't get her Edward to do it...but this makes a lot of sense.

I cried when she awoke and forgave Alice, and then turned to Edward and said "you left me"

The List by Laura Cullen Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 13659]

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. So she begins compiling a list of things that she and Edward can do together once they're happily married. She's surprised to find she might be able to cross some things off earlier than she thought...

Story contains mature themes and is not intended for younger readers.

Happy Birthday!  This is only review number two for me, I'm a poor reviewer, but hopefully knowing I've never reviewed anyother fanfiction stories besides yours lets you know how much I enjoyed your story. 

I have mixed feelings about the change in plot.  I miss Renaesme.  I loved that Belle got to experience that.  It would be interesting if she still could somehow???

Your interpretation of their intimacy was really good. I loved how you brought a deeper level of trust between them.  I also loved your choice in having them at the cottage for their honeymoon, I loved how Jacob imprinted on Samantha, and the way he acted at the wedding.  I loved how you added respect to Bella's character in the way she got to choose her car, the way Edward made sure she was not "dolled" up before waking up.  I loved the extra confidence you gave to Bella.  The panties on his bed was great! 

Overall, I feel I know Edward and Bella more now, and understand them a little better now.  Even the changes you made, I still felt they were the characters I met in SM books.  Thank you for letting me get to read more about my loving Bella and Edward.  

Author's Response:

Thanks for the thoughtful review--I appreciate it!  Sorry you missed Renesmee, I just never liked her as a character.  But I know a lot of people do.  So glad you enjoyed overall!

You did it again! Great chapter. I have a smile on my face, just like Gemma. I can just imagine how happy her heart is. 

I love that Rob took control and slowed their love making, that is the way it should have been...he showed Gemma that is really what they needed.

And hey, I was right about the Cheesy Pasta dish! Yea, very sweet.  I love how we don't forget he's Rob-superstar, but can really see what a normal, loving, sweet guy he is as well. 

Can't wait for more.  I would absolutley love to have the whole story there a way to print the whole story out on this website?

Thanks bunches are really great at writting this story!

Author's Response:

Hey kanikane,

Aww, I'm so glad this chapter made you smile! 

Yayyy, you were right about the cheesy pasta bake! Well done you! Hehee! I gave you a little shout-out in the forums, too. :)

As another reviewer pointed out, Rob and Gemma really do fit together so well in regards to their lovemaking. They chat and giggle and play, but they're also so aware of the others' needs. And as you said, this time it was very much up to Rob to slow Gemma down and take their time. Lovely!

As far as printing out the whole story, there is a way, I think. I've never done it, but I've copied and pasted these instructions from the forum...

1. Login on the main site (
2. Go to Account Info
3. Click "Edit Preferences"
4. Check the box next to "Display table of contents for stories"
5. Click "Submit"
6. Go to the main page for a story (by clicking on its title)
7. Click the printer icon Image at the top right (next to number of reviews and star rating)

[Reviews - 107] ImageImageImageImageImage Image

8. It will bring up another window that gives you the entire story in black text on a white background.

Once you have the whole story open it, you could print it. Just as a warning though, that'll be LOTS of pages! Hehee! I tend to be quite wordy! :)

Thanks so much for your lovely comments and support. See you on Twitter!

While I'm anxiously waiting the next chapter, I'm re-reading the story from the beginning.  I've tried to get into other stories on this stie...but can't find any others I like.  Can't wait to hear what happends with Gemma and Rob, they are so good together. I hope they can find a way to make it work. Your writting is so real....thanks so much!

Author's Response:

Aww, kanikane! I love that you decided to re-read the story from the beginning!

Your comments are so lovely, thank you. I always promised a happy ending with Gemma and Rob, don't worry! There are definitely some bumps along the way, but they adore each other... They'll be okay, one way or another! :)

Thanks for reading... again!

I love this chapter, I think it's my favorite.  The hot tub is just so sexy, and I can imagine them so clearly as I read. Thanks again for writting...can't wait to read the net pressure on updating, lol!

Author's Response:

Hey kanikane,

Aww, I love the hot tub chapter too. It's their first proper kiss - and what a kiss it is! :)

That whole night was lovely to write, really. The hot tub, then into the swimming pool (where Rob very nearly took things a lot further than Gemma intended!), then cuddles on the couch later. Aww. It was really the beginning of Rob and Gemma as we know them now.

Thanks for sharing your favorite chapter with me. Love it!

Author's Response:

Hey kanikane,

Yep, this is the hot tub / swimming pool / couch cuddles chapter! Aww, I like it too. :)

I always submit the next chapter right away, just to let you know. It's really in the hands of my validation beta now! Usually it takes around a week to be validated - sometimes more, sometimes less. Hopefully the next chapter won't be too far away now. Thanks again for reading!

Tom made me nervous!!!! Is Rob going to freak again?  I love Tom, he is such a sweetie, and you added the little fem trait in there (at least in his voice) that had to be added to keep it real:) 

I wonder when Gemma is going to experience the papparazi mayhem? I wonder if it will scare her off? 

As always the love and connection they feel for eachother melts me. 

Side note:  Husband says to me the other day about Rob.."He's going to break your heart when it comes out he's gay"  Ugh!

Author's Response:

Hi kanikane,

Thanks so much for another lovely review. Glad you enjoyed the chapter!

Oh, Tom... He made Gemma a bit nervous too for a moment there! We'll have to wait and see what he meant about Rob pushing people away. He adores Gemma though, so as Tom said, hopefully this will be different. I'm glad you liked Tom though - he's lots of fun to write!

As for Gemma experiencing the paparazzi mayhem, hmm. This story has always been about Rob and Gemma's relationship as people, rather than about him as the 'superstar'. That's a part of it of course, because it has to be, but the paparazzi and fans aren't a huge part of it. That being said, they will deal with that whole thing eventually. For now, my lips are sealed! ;)

Gah, your husband sounds like he might be a little bit jealous of our lovely Rob! Hehee. Poor Mr Kanikane!

There's a visual teaser up in the forum now, if you want to check it out. Thanks again for reading! I always love hearing from you!

Funny, I'm totally past the awesome sex, now I'm just craving the romance.  Can't wait for the proposal...I know Rob's thought about it and probably scared out of this mind, lol!

Great job SwimmingBee!

Author's Response:

Hey kanikane,

Hmm, there is quite a bit of awesome sex going on at the moment, isn't there? Rob and Gemma are definitely still in that honeymoon phase after their argument. There's a bit more steaminess to come, but hopefully it's still kind of romantic too!

And hehee, the proposal?! Oooh, I don't want to break your heart but he's not really thinking about how to propose at the moment. He's probably thinking more about making sure he doesn't screw up again! But you never really know with Rob, do you!? :)

Thanks so much for reading. I hope you stick with me, even though Rob and Gemma can't take their hands off each other at the moment!

Date: February 03, 2011 Title: Chapter 34: Chapter 34 - What?

:) No hidding necessary!   Was it hard to read, yes. Is it what I wanted my adorable Rob to do, no. But the reason I love this story is because it is real.  Mess happens in real life, people do crappy things esspecially to those we love the most.  Rob's feelings for Gemma are getting off the chart, and his actions are showing how scared the fuck he is.  

To be honest I was getting scared that you might write some "drama" for sake of "drama, and was worried that I would be disappointed in the next chapter.  However, you stuck with reality...and it has worked out superb. 

I think you truly  have talent. Their actions are real, their voices are real, and their love makes my heart melt.  

Great Job!!!!!!! and Thank you!!!!! 

Author's Response:

Hi kanikane,

Aww, what a lovely review. Thanks so much! I've come out of hiding, it's okay. :)

You're totally right - mess happens in real life! Although I always wanted this story to be happy and fun, I also wanted it to be realistic and this was the plan all along. Sad, but true. Sometimes reality comes along and gives us a good hard shake-up when we least expect it.

There's a bumpy road ahead, because things like this can't be fixed overnight, but hopefully you'll stick with them to see it through.

Thanks again...

Oh, I miss them as much as they miss eachother! lol!  Loved the part when Gemma gives Marcus her phone and tells him to tell Rob to "Fuck off"!  Awesome Girl Power in this chap! 

Poor Gemma is still so messed up...what is she going to do???  I think Rob needs to more than text, but what?? I'm not sure what Gemma is able to handle right now. 

Once they get back together I think they will both be doing some major make up to Marcus and Ashley.

As always love it....and it was such a nice Valentines Day gift! Will be so sad to say goodbye.

Author's Response:

Hi kanikane,

Aww, I miss them together too, but this was always going to take some time. There's a lot to sort through, and yep, poor Gemma really was a bit of an emotional wreck in this chapter. She was allowing herself to be a mess; to escape for a night and to try and forget about Rob - but of course, that didn't happen. He surrounds her, even when he's not physically with her. Sigh!

Rob's texting certainly isn't helping, but as he said, it's all he can do right now. It's that final link between them and he can't let her go. He misses her too much. You're right though - Gemma really isn't up to seeing him yet, or even speaking to him, so he's kind of at a loss of what to do. She just needs her space and some time to think.

But yay, there was quite a bit of Girl Power in this chapter, wasn't there? "Tell your friend to fuck off and stop texting me," was certainly not a normal Gemma thing to say, but she needed to put it out there! Hehee. Go Gemma...

Thanks so much for continuing to read and review, and for all your support. You're lovely! :)

I posted a mini teaser in the forums, too...

Date: February 19, 2011 Title: Chapter 37: Chapter 37 - Babysteps

They're on their way! Yea!  Rob's texts made more sense to me in the chap. I finally saw him as writting them to himself, like as in a journal or something.  He never was positive if Gemma was getting them, and like you continued to state it was their only link.  When I thought of his words as his internal ramblings, they made me hurt for him instead of angry when I thought he expected a reply. 

The closure with Aaron was sublime.  I hadn't thought much of Aaron sense the party, but their meeting again was the perfect opportunity for Gemma to close that door for good.  Maybe she thought it was closed before, but the assurance that is was over was made so clear at this finally little meeting.  And while it's going to kill Rob to know she kissed Aaron, if she tells him, I think it was needed to go forward into a more serious relationship with Rob. And after all Rob deserves a little more pain, right?!

Wondering how Rob is going to assure Gemma that he won't mess up again in the future?  Not sure I would believe him, how is Gemma going to trust him again?  How is their intimacy going to go back to the way it was, without Gemma having to think about him with some other girl?  Will be interesting to see how she figures things out for herself and Rob. 

As always, LOVE IT!  Thanks Bee!


Author's Response:

Hi kanikane,

I love what you wrote about his texts being more like a journal that he was writing for just himself and Gemma. Honestly, I'd never thought it that way but you're exactly right. He was just venting to her, whether or not she was reading them. He was attempting to keep on talking to her, because he misses his Gemma so much. And when she eventually wrote back, clearly he was pretty blown away. He really is hurting too - but yes, he deserves to.

And Aaron, gah! Gemma didn't intentionally set out to find her closure with him, but she stumbled upon it anyway. Their lunch was definitely what she needed to close that door finally, and perhaps open a new one to Rob again. She knows now that there's definitely nothing between her and Aaron, and that maybe he's not quite as evil as she thought he was. Maybe they could even be friends, one day... If he's lucky. Hehee.

There are definitely lots of issues for Rob and Gemma to work through - trust being very high up on that list. They've got a lot of talking to do and big decisions to make. It won't be easy but for now, there's babysteps... We'll see how they go. :)

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and support. I really appreciate you sharing your thoughts! You're usually so spot on, it's scary! :)
