FanFics I’m Reading

Although I have cut back on the amount of fan fiction I’m reading (yes it’s true and this saddens me) because I’ve set a goal for myself to read a certain amount of books before the end of the year, there are still a few that have my full attention.  There are so many of them out there that are so good, I am but a mere human and cannot read them all despite wanting to.

As usual, I’m not actually going to review them (I suck at writing reviews).  I will provide the links and banners (if they have one), together with the brief synopsis provided by the author.  If I’m posting them here it’s because I totally lurrrrrvvvveeee them and want more people to read them too.  Some of them are works in progress while others are complete.  I haven’t yet finished the ones I’m listing here today, either because they are WIP or because I don’t have enough hours in the day, but I’m slowly getting through them.

When Will I Know by Deb24601

You don’t get over Edward Cullen. Even when he was never really yours. A story about wanting, needing and, eventually, knowing. AH.

[NOTE: This fantastic story is being updated daily until completion.  The word “sunshine” will never be the same again. Just sayin’]

 

A Getty Romance by Rinabina

It would be impossible for Bella to love anything more than her job at the J Paul Getty museum. That is, until a handsome, bronze-haired, fine suit-ed young man breezes through her gallery. A love story within the walls of a museum. E/B AH AU

[NOTE: If you haven’t read Rinabina’s other stories…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???!!!]

The Better Angels of Our Nature by Lissa Bryan

Bella is a powerful telekinetic, escaped from a government research facility. With her is Edward, her guardian angel, sent to earth to protect her. Can they find safety? Can Bella love this extraordinary creature? OOC/AU Rated M for all the good stuff.

[NOTE: Beautifully written stories!  If you haven’t read this or any of her other stories, do yourself a favour and go read them]

The Biology Project by solostintwilight

Edward’s a sex addict resisting treatment, Bella’s a girl who just wants to get laid already. What happens when they get paired up for a Biology Project? Bio Lab could get interesting…

[Note: I really do love this Edward. No! It doesn’t have anything to do with him being a sex addict!!! 😛]

Push by xXKiwiCullenXx

Inspired by “Push” by Matchbox 20. I remained in my hiding place taking in the older motorcycle, his messy windblown bronze hair, leather jacket, worn jeans, biker boots and white t-shirt. He was a like a modern-day James Dean. Canon/AH/Lang/Lemons

[NOTE: Please be warned that there is physical and sexual abuse in this story.  Other than that it is a fantastic story!

**Writing4Roses is kind enough to look over my ramblings to make sure I’m dotting all my Is and crossing all my Ts (and to add the odd witty comment every here and there).


These Are A Few of My Favourite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...” ok, that’s not what I was going to really say but those sound so good.

My sister recently made a blog post called Things I Love in 400 Words.  After getting me all sentimental and weepy it got me thinking about making a similar post.  There are so many things I love that I fear I would bore everyone to tears with the long list (never mind trying to keep it under 400 words)  so I’m going to keep it down to just “a few”.

Let’s start with a few of the fan fiction stories that have owned my arse in the last little while:

Open to Interpretation by elvis4scilla

Robert Pattinson is twenty-five years old and a solid A-list international star. He is on the last leg of a European promotional tour for his latest film, when he meets a sexy much older woman who has been hired to serve as his language interpreter. What will develop during their travels throughout Spain, Italy, England, France and America? Will this older woman teach Rob about love and lust or will he have something to teach her? Lots of ripe, juicy, delicious lemons and possibly other fruit.

Note: I don’t usually read RP fics (for my own sanity, I think) but DAMN!!! This one is so good. [W4R:  Yes, I love it too!]

Footprints in the Snow by cosmogirl7481

“An hour from now, when the snow falls again, it will be like we weren’t even there. But we will remember.” A story of unrequited love, and how the things we keep silent can hurt us and the ones we hold closest. E/B Rated M for themes of an adult nature.

Note:  You know you just can’t go wrong with any story written by Cosmogirl7481

Masen Days by purelyamuse

3rd Place Winner in the Boys on Boards contest! Now an EXPANDED multi-chap! Bella meets Masen at the local skate park. He’s a quiet, mysterious loner. She wants to help him, love him even. Will he let her? Or will he skate away like he always does? AH

Note:  I love this Edward. I just want to hug him.

Let’s move on to a few of my fave fan made videos:

Robert Pattinson//I Want You!!!// by manu150176

Mad About The Boy: Robert Pattinson by MelbieToast

Why We Love Vishous by Calanthaa

What?!  You thought they were all going to be about Rob?  Had to sneak some Black Dagger Brotherhood‘s Vishous in there 🙂

As usual this wouldn’t be a post from me if I didn’t bring some Robp0rn.  Here are a few of my favourite things about Rob:

Rome Rob edit by Socalmom2four

I can start with his beautiful blue eyes. Followed by his mouth (especially that bottom lip) and that delicious scruff of his.  These are a few of my favourite things about Rob.

BUT WAIT!…..

Rob at the Sex Drive premier Oct. 2008

How could I possibly not include my all time favourite thing about Rob?! HIS NECK!!!! I’ll spare you all the details about why I love his neck (that would have to be a post all on its own).

And last but not least, I have to include a few “real life” favourite things:

  • When my second-born says “I love you, Mommy”.
  • When my first-born wants to discuss books we’ve been reading or wanting to read.
  • That first kiss when DH comes home from work.
  • The tradition of putting a puzzle together with my sister and first-born on Boxing Day.
  • Being together with friends and family at Christmas.
  • Sitting down with a good book and a cup of coffee.

Yup! These are most definitely a few of my favourite things!

*Unfortunately Writing4Roses who usually is kind enough to look over my ramblings to make sure I’m dotting all my Is and crossing all my Ts has not looked this over. So any errors in spelling or grammar are completely my own.  [UPDATED!  — > **Writing4Roses has approved this message! LOL]

There are so many wonderful stories out there so this is just a short list in no particular order.  Like last time, I’m not going to review each story, I’m just going to give you a link to it and the brief summary provided by the authors on FFn (www.fanfiction.net).

Scruffalicious!!!!!

Once again, the blog that I swore wouldn’t be all about Rob is going to be about… ROB. (I try!  I really do, but I just can’t get that boy out of my system!) [W4R:  Is this where I’m supposed to feel sorry for you? LOL Its not working… LOL]

I’m the kind of girl who prefers a clean-shaven guy.  Well…at least I used to.  I used to not be a big fan of beards and I could barely tolerate a goatee.  Enter Rob and all that goes to hell!  All of a sudden I’m finding scruff… sexy, and I find myself not minding the goatee that DH is sporting.  (I swear he snuck it up on me when I wasn’t looking. ;))

Now we all know that Rob’s level of hotness is not affected by the growth of his facial hair. OR IS IT?!  [W4R:  Sure doesn’t hurt it either! LOL]  Everyone has their own personal preference for Rob and his scruff/beard. Some like him clean-shaven. Some like him with that mountain man look.  Then there’s my favourite, The In-Between stage.  That glorious scruff that is just long enough to not hurt your sensitive skin anymore and very possibly soft enough to tickle 🙂 [W4R:  Ladies & germs, I present to you, The Progression of ScruffyRob…. LOL *points to graphic below*]

Rob's varying degrees of facial hair

It is a well-known fact that Rob doesn’t shave unless he has to.  It’s fun to anticipate how long he’ll let that beard grow.  We all know it’ll happen but during a RobDrought it’s almost as if we’re holding our collective breath until we see just how much scruff he’ll have on that beautiful face of his.

Just this week the great city of Toronto (yes, it’s home to me) had the pleasure of having Rob grace it with his presence.  Yes, it was a very brief visit! And yes, he was able to avoid being found by any of the “Toronto Set Soldiers” (you know who you are – I love you ladies!!!!)  There he was at Pearson International Airport [Exhibit A:  Photo on the right–>] with that full beard of his, looking like his incredibly sexy self!!!! [W4R:  UNF!  Oh, um, I’m sorry.. what…? LOL]

I’m thinking that he’ll probably lay low for the next few weeks until he has to start the promotional blitz for Breaking Dawn:  Part 1.  Will he be spotted looking like he did last year as he drove through Texas [W4R:  Please come back, Rob… puh-lllleasseee! *begs* (yes, I’m begging!  Worth a shot!)] or will we have to wait until he starts working again to be treated to his clean-shaven beautiful face?  Can’t wait to find out!!!

Rob in Houston last year looking a little worse for wear but still sexy

While we’re on the topic of beards, here is a fan fic story that features a beard prominently.  Give it a go.  It’s still a work in progress but it’s fun so far!

The Good, The Beard and The Stubborn by Rinabina

A mini-take for Foul Territory.  Edward comes home from a road trip with a new “development.”  Bella reacts, lines are drawn, sides taken and the bet is on.  Who will break first?  Will be complete by the end of the week.  E/B AH AU

Before I end this post, I’d also like to give you a link to a fan made video by manu150176.  Go have a look! So much scruffalicious goodness!!!!  While you’re there, have a look at her other videos.

Some Of My Favourite Fan Fiction Stories

I like to joke that I’ve been in Fan Fiction Hell for the last two and a half years but there’s a reason for it.  Some of the stories are so well written and they’re exciting to read.  It really is difficult to pull myself away from it.  Here are some of my favourite stories still in progress in no particular order.  I am providing the link to each story and the brief synopsis provided by the author.  I am not writing a review for each story.  Clearly, I love these stories or they wouldn’t be on this list.  I thought I’d share them with you without putting my spin on them. I’ll let you decide for yourselves…

All Because of ONE Book!!!

I don’t know if you know this or not but I am an avid reader.  I have been for a very long time.  I’ve always enjoyed reading about supernatural stuff (i.e.: vampires, witches, faeries, etc).  Back in 2007, it was because of my love of reading everything vampire that I ended up reading Twilight.  It was purely by accident that I picked up a book about a girl who falls in love with a vampire.  Little did I know how much this would change my world.

Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

I know what you’re thinking!  How could a book change someone’s world?!  Well, when I say it changed my world, I don’t mean that it changed my life in a profound way.  Meeting and marrying my soul mate, having my children – these were profound changes.  I just mean that it opened the door for a bunch of new experiences that I would not have come across otherwise.

The first thing that Twilight has done for me is that it’s introduced me to a whole group of people who I would not have met in my day-to-day life.  I have met people who I will consider lifelong friends.  I won’t name them here but they know who they are. (*W4R coughs obnoxiously loud here* LOL)

Robert Pattinson as Edward, Art, Tyler, Georges and Jacob

Aside from meeting new people, it’s also introduced me to a certain hot, young, British actor.  Yeah, you know who I’m talking about, don’t pretend you don’t.  I have never EVER been as intrigued by an actor the way I am about Robert Pattinson!  It’s odd what I’ve done because of this beautiful boy (insert:  exhibit A).  I just think he is the sexiest man alive (I wish People Magazine would get with the program on this already)!!!!  As an actor, he’s growing and changing. He’s so much more than Edward Cullen.  I look forward to many more great things from him in the future.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

Also because of Twilight, I was introduced to the world of Fan Fiction. I like to joke that I’ve been stuck in FanFic Hell for over two years, mainly because I have almost completely given up on “real” books.  (Note from W4R:  You know the old saying… “Once you go fan fic, you never go back!”  LOL) I have read and continue to read so many fanfic stories that up until recently, I haven’t had time to read a “real” book.  When I first heard of FanFic, I was reluctant to read any of it but then a few friends convinced me to read The List by LauraCullen… and dagnabit I was hooked!  I have read so many wonderful stories written by so many incredibly talented people. If you need a fanfic story rec, I’m happy to give you a few. Continue reading
