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:

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!

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…

We Are Dealt by Aussiegirl101

Bella is a teacher in Sydney, Australia.  She meets the parents of 6 year-old students Emmett and Rosie – Alice & Edward Cullen.  The family has a tragedy in their recent history and they need Bella’s help.
