What is it that saying about bad things happening to good people?
Victoria is dead, Bella and Edward are engaged, Jake is imprinted and happy. Everything is perfect, right?
Of course not.
Alice has a vision that will change everything, and all that the Cullens have ever believed to be true about their lives and their world will come crashing down. And this time, they may not be strong enough to fix this.
Rated R for violence, and Emmett's Excessive Use of Foul Language.
NOTE: This is the sequel to my Eclipse AU, "If All Were As It Should Be." If you have not read that story, this will make absolutely no sense. Go read "If All Were As It Should Be," for the sake of your own sanity if nothing else.
EPOV. Takes place one week before the wedding in Breaking Dawn. One evening in Bella's bed. What if she wanted Edward to drink her blood? I always thought that would be erotic but never got to see that in any of the books. Rated M for sensuality. Oneshot.
This story owes everything to “No regrets” by Withthevampsofcourse. There have been many versions of the first night on Isle Esme, but hers is the one that intrigued me most. It is dark, exciting and…. believable. Please read it if you haven’t. The point is that during their passionate lovemaking Edward loses it and bites Bella on the inner tight. It is a small bite, and almost immediately he sucks the venom and seals the wound. Bella is so far gone in pleasure that he thinks she never even realized what he had done. I think that the bite, more than just bruises, explain why the morning after Edward is horrified and says “no more”. Unfortunately, the author never wrote a follow up, to my frustration, because I hoped to learn why Edward eventually relented and was able to make love to Bella without hurting her. Surely some black lace and a “please” would not have sufficed, in this case. Since no other explanation is forthcoming, I try to give my own. It is rather OOC, while afterwards the story could continue exactly in the way Stephenie Meyer wrote it.
Krystal, Bella's half sister, comes to live with her in Forks. Of course, Krystal came to Forks at a bad time. Bella finally has gained the love of Edward Cullen, and Krystal seems to be a bit of a distraction. But Bella soon finds she and Krystal have a lot in common. And of course it would be invetiable that Krystal would get sucked into the secret world that her half-sister was living in.
Did you want more from the honeymoon scene in Breaking Dawn? If so, here is the first night on Isle Esme. What exactly happened after Edward pulled Bella deeper into the ocean? The events from the water to the bedroom from Edward's POV in five chapters (before the bruises show up).
This story begins after the conclusion of Eclipse. Newly engaged, Bella and Edward explore the physical and romantic boundaries of their relationship. Together they will embark on a new level of intimacy neither of them has experienced before.
No one else noticed anything but their beautifully heart-breaking faces, perfect and flawless in every way imaginable. Although they were notorious for amazing beauty, they were also known for their scandalous family dynamic and seclusion outside of those relationships—with the one exception: Bella Swan. An introspective look at Bella Swan and the Cullens through the eyes of Lauren Mallory.
This story can stand alone, but I would like it to become part of a series open to other authors. The title of the series would be “Growth” and should address moments of Edward’s growth, from teenager angst to adulthood. This first story is called “A man at last” and is written in Carlisle's POV. It describes the last moment of growth, at the end of Breaking Dawn, recalling briefly what the other steps were.
I know that many people felt let down by the fight scene and ending to breaking dawn. I was one of these readers. I decide to write my own version. I think it is a good balance between the happy ending that so many wanted, but the action that was needed. When I posted this intitally I was only considering a one-shot fight scene. Once I became aware of the opportunity, I decided to see where else the story might take me...
“This is disturbing indeed,” Marcus stated to no one in particular. “We have little time to prepare our defenses… We need to flee. The only reason you won the last battle is because they did not realize your power. They will not make the same mistake. We must find refuge until we can develop a better plan.”
Favorite Review so far:
"HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! That's what I have to say about that!! You did an amazing job with the fight scene and I loved it!!!! When everyone always talked about wanting a better fight, I wanted that too, but I still wanted the Cullens to win!! You did both and I love Bella's abilities. I thought it was great that ***** left the Volturi too!! I look forward to your next chapters, I think you've got something awesome going here!!!!!!!!!!!!"
