I swore, up and down, for a very long time that I would not give in to the mania that Twilight seemed to be...scratch that...IS. But then, I do that with all the fads, perhaps to see if they are more than fads. I steadfastly refused to read the books or see the first two movies. After all, I'm no longer a teenager and I never really did take a liking to damsels in distress, vampires and/or werewolves.

But then, one fateful day this past spring, my sister left a copy of Twilight that she had borrowed from a friend lying around. Being the book lover that I am, I picked it up, wondering what all the fuss was about.

All the fuss led me to devour all four books twice in a month's time. I bought a DVD of Twilight and watched it three times in one weekend (am I the only one thrilled the movie put Jasper in the same grade as Edward and Alice?). And I counted down the days to the release of Eclipse.

Someone that I talked to somewhere else had a great phrase about herself as a Twilight fan and I think it fits me, too.

I'm obsessed in a decent way.

Yeah, that's it.

Anyway, I consider myself to be TEAM JASPER. My favorite book is ECLIPSE. My favorite movie is ECLIPSE. Both of those probably have something to do with JASPER.

Let me know if you need a beta, I'm happy to help on almost any story. My only condition is that it cannot use direct quotes from the books. Anything else, I'm good with.

I have also given in to the fad that is Twitter and you can follow me if you want. I'm @idealskeptic

I also happen to have no talent whatsoever when it comes to banners but I have some absolutely amazing banners for my stories. Why? Because Twi-fandom banner makers are super nice and really, really good. Here's a link to all the banners for my stories... My Banners

Stories by idealskeptic

Tread Softly banner

Angela Weber was always the good girl in a boring town. When she goes away to college, everything changes in an instant. Shot and left for dead by a mafia hitman, she's taken into the Witness Protection Program so that she can testify against Ben's killer. Until the trial, she's relocated to Juneau, Alaska.

Alaska is a safe place for yellow-eyed vampires.

Jasper has always had one reason for existing - Alice. With Alice killed, he's struggling to find a reason to live just one day more even when Peter and Charlotte change their diets to try to help their friend recover and heal. With Carlisle, Esme, Peter, and Charlotte, Jasper moves to Juneau, Alaska.

Alone in the world, Angela and Jasper will go to any and everything length to save each other.

In Human History

Seven chapters, one for each Cullen, based on the lives they lead as humans. Why is it that neither Carlisle Cullen, Jasper Whitlock, Esme Platt, Edward Masen, Alice Brandon, Rosalie Hale, nor Emmett McCarty had happy, carefree lives before they became immortal? Is it the times they lived in?

Journey Home banner

Prequel, that can stand alone, to my story When It Rains.

The Cullens were never really free of the Volturi. In Breaking Dawn, Carlisle and Siobhan discuss the imminent return of the Italian vampires. In this story, they've returned and Alice didn't see it. She was killed in a surprise attack.

This is the story of how Jasper dealt with the loss of his mate and how he decided to go on living ... for her.

Alice and Jasper were probably the least likely candidates to escort Bella away from Forks and to Phoenix when James was chasing her. This is the story of how they help each other stay strong in some of the hardest moments they've faced in decades.

First Time Again by idealskeptic Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 2]

Esme had suffered through a horrible marriage in her human life. She fell in love with Carlisle shortly after she opened her eyes to a whole new life. They married quickly, but it took time for her to be ready to become his wife in the fullest sense of the definition. Together, they waited two years before coming together as man and wife.

Smut. Plain and simple.

Somehow Otherworldly banner

This is a prequel of sorts to my story, When It Rains.

A one-shot written for Fandom for Sexual Assault Awareness, it is the story of the Cullens time in Forks, seen through the eyes of the very perceptive Angela Weber.

She sees them like no one else does and though she knows just what the town thinks of them, she doesn't agree.

Charlotte really wants to be like Alice. She knows that not killing humans is probably the best way to get a closet to match the pixie's. Before the Volturi come in Breaking Dawn, she makes a deal with Peter that, if they survive, they can try the Cullens' diet. Getting started isn't easy...

Rated R for language.

When It Rains Fan Art

This so, so, so very amazing banner/fan art was made by the so, so, so very lovely FrozenSoldier.

banner by JennyCullen

This banner was made by the lovely JennyCullen.

The Cullens have suffered the tragedy that they knew, at the end of Breaking Dawn, would find them eventually. Now, in their second year without Alice, Edward and Bella, they find themselves with the chance to be healed.

Angela Weber is a senior at university in Vancouver. One day, while working at a bookstore to pay her rent, she sees someone she remembers from school in Forks. But he didn't have a daughter, and this tall man with curly, blond hair didn't have a daughter in Forks. The man at the store was with an angelic little girl with wide brown eyes and copper curls.

When Nessie connects with her mother's best human friend, Angela sets out to be the friend that she knows the little girl needs. Desperately.

Then, without warning, Angela builds a connection to the other Cullen who has been hurt the most. Jasper. She wants him to laugh again.

With her help, he will. He may even love again.

An unlikely alliance forged between Caius, Jane and Maria seeks to destroy the Cullen family. Each of the three takes hostages during a fierce, surprise attack. Only Jasper and Nessie are left as witnesses. Nessie seeks out the only people who can truly help find her family, the wolfpack.

More than willing to help once again, the wolfpack forges an even deeper alliance with the Cullens as they all begin to consider themselves to be truly...friends.

Told from many different POVs.

Jasper opens up to Esme as a son to a mother, goes shopping for a car with Rosalie, bakes a pie with Renesmee, shops for lingerie with Emmett, bonds with Bella, talks sense into Edward, turns back time with Alice, and breaks down with Carlisle.
