New Recommendations AKA Its About Damn Time  

Friday, October 30, 2009

October is usually my favorite month of the year. Its not too hot and not cold, I'm fond of Autumn because it really is quite beautiful around here during that time of year plus the biggest bonus is Halloween at the end of the month**I spent a ton of money on my Alice in Wonderland costume this year, don't worry there will be pictures on ApplesnFeathers I'm sure*** but instead it has been a horrible month because Real Life which usually only is only a minor suck fest has turned into a major one as of late and all though I've been posting like a mad man on AnF I haven't posted anything on here since it is Novemeber so this post is long due! I've got some great reccomendations for you all so HERE WE GO!!!

New Recommendations

I was slightly reluctant to start a new story considering I'm involved in reading alot of WIP's right now but some of my favorite bloggy buddies twisted my arm and said Bitch You Gonna Read This!! So I did and...AMAZEMENT!!
From FF.Net: Laced in silence and bound by his black web of a backpack,
the new boy dressed in the faded red pullover is driving Bella insane with curiosity. Don't judge a boy by his sweater.

This story is finished but the author, Starrynytex, has begun writing Edwards POV called Girl With The Red Notebook and its WIP. She has also written little extras as well so click on the author to check all the above out. Read Boy In The Red Sweater first that way you'll get a feel for everything first!

The next Rec on the agenda was the first story I ever read that had an odd pairing, well not really an odd pairing more so a pairing that I had never read before. I gave it a chance a long while back, in fact, it was reviewed on one of my Fan Fiction Wednesday videos, but now I'm recommending it to you!

Dear Diary by Alice_Laughed is a Quil/Claire pairing and it is told in the unique perspective of Claire's diary entries starting with the age of 10 in which Quil gives her said diary on her birthday. Now before you go ewwww...I too was very eeked out by Quil's imprint on a 2 year old just as I was creeped out by Jacob and Renesmee but I eventually warmed up to them and in turn reading Alice_Laughed's story made me love Quil and Claire on a more respected level so click the fic pic(made by me TADA!!) to go check it out.

One Shot Rec Time!

The following one shot is actually my favorite within a series of Six Degrees of Separation one shots by Beckylady. Go HERE to view her other stories to read the rest. My favorite story in this senario is a different point of view of Alice waiting for her Jasper in the little diner. Whats it called?

Click the Fic Pic to go to the story

Once Upon a Diner is sweet, short, and heartwarming. Its a must read one shot for any Alice fan(which I very much am lol) so please check it out and read the other "Six Degrees Of Separation" one shots by Becklady because in addition to her amazing writing they all involve a sweet little twist enjoy!

Since I've started reading Twilight Fan Fiction they have illicited many different emotions from me, mostly of the dirty thought and twisted knickers variety but very few can be so powerful that they in fact make me cry...this is one of them.

These Things I Hide has one of the most unique POV's I've EVER and I mean EVER read. I am a fan of unique stories. I don't enjoy reading the same fluff or Mary Jane crap over and over again(that's why I stopped reading my Buffy fan fiction long ago) but this beautifully written story by Openmouthwideeye will truly bring you to tears. This story is perfect for if you're in a New Moon kind of mood. What's the POV? Not gonna tell*insert evil smirk here* you'll just have to read it for yourselves so click on the fic pic!

Lastly but sure as hell not leastly is a "dreamy" fic set in the confides of the Eclipse threesome tent(that's what I like to call it don't judge me)

This sexy fan fic by onePushyfox is HOT! and what do I mean by hot? I mean that if you are reading this blog right now and you are under 18 or you're not mature enough to read panty soaking lemons then don't click the fic pic(made by me...hope you like it Foxy!) above, or you could click it and maybe the amazing, steamy writing will teach you a thing or two. This is a Jacob POV one shot and it is worth the read especially if you love the tent scene as much as I do cause DAMN!!!

Breaking News

This just in Twific freaks....the following stories are brand spanking new and ALREADY deserve to be recognized!

Click the Pic and read In The Blood by FragileFoxes

This story is a collaboration fic by two of my favorite authors, fragilelittlehuman and onePushyfox. Its in its 3rd chapter on and the 4th chapter teaser came out yesterday on the FragileFoxes teaser HERE! I don't want to give too much away with this one because a special post is coming in the next couple of weeks if I can get two certain authors to cooperate lol.

My dear twibloggy sister Straight Jacket Aimee has decided to branch out in the fan fiction business and her story, Chapter One of A Broken Triangle is up for your viewing pleasure so click the fic pic! Also you can go to the fic's blog HERE! Follow and stay up to date on her latest chapters.

Phew...that took a lot damn longer than I expected but each of these stories are worth the time! So enjoy reading and stop back by soon for my latest Spotlight feature!

Spotlight on I'll Be Your Lover Too  

Saturday, September 12, 2009

I figure I would start off this spotlight feature by giving you all a little taste of Mrs. Robward's most recent chapter, appropriately named "Saturate Me"

His tousled hair was standing on ends, the damage attributed to his nervous habit. His perfect lips, the ones I earlier had pressed against mine, were barely open and I could see his heavenly tongue resting in its home. I inhaled deeply through my nose trying to recall the scent that had encased me during our embrace and I bit down on my own bottom lip to somehow try and recreate the zing from that kiss. I would never forget that feeling.

And that's not even half of the steamy goodness that follows in Chapter 9, which includes Wetward. I'll repeat that...Wetward...nuff said. How could I not do a spotlight on this story?

In Susie's Spotlight: What Is I'll Be Your Lover Too

Button made by Betti

From Mrs. Robwards profile: Edward and Bella were childhood friends, after years apart, they're back together for their Senior Year of High School. Has their friendship out lasted the distance that's been between them or will their past spoil what could be?

The Basics

This beautiful story is one of my favorite All Human fics written by my dear bloggy friend Mrs. Robward. It is a work in progress and she is cranking out chapters as fast as she can. Chapter 9 was posted for our viewing pleasure yesterday and that can be viewed HERE

What's In A Name?

One of the main things that first attracted me to this piece was the title itself. Not only is a the brief summary important but when searching for a new story to read I have to be intrigued by the title as well. As a Rob fan (obviously) Mrs. Robward knows her man and I have to admit listening to RPattz covering Van Morrison's I'll Be Your Lover Too sends chills up my spine but since I started reading this story the song now reminds me of it.


We All need a little inspiration and authors are no different. Stephanie Meyer even has playlists of songs that inspired her to write our beloved Saga. So what gives Mrs. Robward the inspiration for each chapter?...this lovely video created by our very own Mrs. Vanquish!!!

Character Roundup

Mrs. Robward writes each character with a specific personality in mind and although they aren't what one normally expects, its fun to see these couples portrayed differently. I'm very fond of uniquely written characters and Mrs. Robward knows how to do it right.

Alice and Jasper: The Shy Couple

Emmett and Rosalie: The Dirty Couple

Esme: The Sentimental Mom

Bella: Emotionally Scarred with a dash of Tease

Edward: Bruised and Confused

Susie's Opinion

Witty, funny, emotional, seductive, steamy, and at times leaves your heart doing a little awww thump thump awww (okay those were a bunch of adjectives and one weird sound effect but you get my point) So far I adore this story. I look forward to each time she posts a new chapter. I enjoy the setting, the plot, and the characters. For me when one of those three things is weak then I can't usually enjoy the story. If I were a teacher I would give Mrs. Robward a little gold star for all

So now that you know what to expect out of the talented Mrs. Robward I suggest you quit reading this and click on this kick ass banner below created by Reigny, start from the beginning, and get the full experience of I'll Be Your Lover Too...Enjoy!

Spotlight on Breathe Me by A Fragile Little Human  

Monday, August 31, 2009

So much stuff happened on Friday that it was like a bloggy overload so I waited until today to let you all know that Chapter 10 of Breathe Me by A Fragile Little Human is up and awaiting your opinion.

In Susie's Spotlight: What is Breathe Me?

Banner made by A Fragile Little Human

From FLH's Profile Page: Deserted by her first love, Bella leaves Forks and finds a new path. A new friendship causes her past to resurface. Will she return to a life that broke her heart?

Breathe Me is the kind of story that I like to call "the road less traveled". I know you're thinking WTF but seriously hear me out. In our beloved New Moon when Edward leaves Bella she has to suffer and rebuild herself only to return to Edward! Now we all love Bella/Edward together, but in all honesty if that shit happened to me I would not have gone back to him. I think this is exactly what Fragile Little Human is trying to convey with this story.

She Ain't No Wilting Flower

What if Bella said, "Charlie I can't stay here lets get the fuck out of Forks and move on from all this messed up shit." and Charlie agreed? Thus begins a side of a Bella character I have never read before. This Bella character, while it takes time, becomes more strong willed and with more courage and conviction than any Bella character I've read. No joke people if you can recommend a strong Bella character to me I would love to see it because she is not represented enough in fan fiction. Fragile Little Human on the other hand knocks it out of the ball park.

Helllloooo Handsome!

This story is also the very first crossover fic I have ever read. Don't cringe just yet. I know many people aren't keen to reading crossovers. I did hesitate at first but since I can never say no to Fragile*wink*I took a chance. It was worth it. The crossover characters are from a short lived Tv Show called Moonlight. While there vampiric orgins differ from the vampires of the Twilight Saga, Fragile Little Human explains it so simply that you start to think, why couldn't there be several different species. It really does make sense. Mick is the central Moonlight character in this fic although other roles, such as Mick's lover Beth, has made an appearance so far. While I have yet to watch Moonlight, You can read this story just fine without needing to know the history of Moonlight and its still just as good. A good backstory is always intriguing so eventually I will give it a chance because I would really like to learn more about Mick in his world.

Here is just a teeny tiny teaser sentence from Chapter 10 that jumped out and bit me...

The sound of a shotgun blast and a muzzle flash over their heads shocked them out of their staredown. Mick turned to see Bella standing, mouth hanging open, a shotgun in her hand, and a shell casing at her feet.

Hopefully that convinced you to go to one of two places

To Read From The Beginning OR Read The Latest Chapter

Shit that Happened Friday That I'm Just Now Posting  

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Sorry about being late on this particular post, a big fuck you to Real Life because it's getting in my Twilife too much *GO AWAY*

The Buried Among The Begonias discussion has begun!
Is begun a word? doesn't matter
because it has. Cutie at Super Secret Twilight Blog started it off with the anticipated Q&A with the author of BATB, DurtyNelly. Her answers were detailed, funny, and interesting. I love learning about an author. It really does give you a little insight into their characters. She gave us fans plenty of juicy info to chew on and also a really kick ass playlist that inspires her while she writes! The music is hardcore but so is her fic. I listened to it while I read the Q&A. She was a great sport and answered EVERY question that was given to her...I'm talking 46 fucked up queries and she answered them ALL! She did answer two of my questions!!

15. Have you ever been in an S&M relationship
before or do you find that is just a kinky muse
for only your inner thoughts which tends
come out in your characters?

No, I've never been in an S&M relationship. I'm not a masochist, or big on pain. I am, however, in a D/s relationship, but I try to avoid dreaded punishment spankings at ALL costs. (shudder) When I do get into trouble, I usually cry like a baby and try to pout my way out of it. You know, big sad eyes, quivering lips, lots of snot and blubbering, the whole sah-bang. (snicker) Yes, I'm a sly, snarky little Sub. never works though, because he knows me too well.

16. Did you research the effects of split personality disorder or have you known someone with schizophrenia?

Yep, like I said before, I did oh-so-much research. No, I don't know anyone with MPD or schizophrenia. My hubby is a diagnosed Obsessive Compulsive....does that count? (snort)

Here are some things I learned during the Q&A that really caught my eye!!

One of her favorite authors is Chuck Palahniuk. I fucking adore Chuck Palahniuk and the twisted beauty that is his work!
She herself is in an D/s that makes sense!
She received a really harsh comment for her Chapter 13
Masen enjoys Apple Pie while Edward enjoys Princess Cake lol
I loved how a lot of her answers were open ended and makes you want to ask more questions*Grr*
She would not choose the Twilight cast to play her characters if her story became a movie. Who would she choose for Bella and Edward...these people...

Samantha Noble and Jensen Ackels

They are both very smexy so honestly I think her picks are fine even though when I read BATB I envision someone else.

That of course is the next session of the BATB discussion. Since DurtyNelly has a seperate idea of who her Masen is, Fragile Little Human thought that we as fans should share who our Masen is!! I've submitted mine of course and that section of the discussion will be posted on Sept 1st.

In addition to all the Q&A goodies, DurtyNelly posted Chapter 15 for BATB!! It's called Rip, Brake, and Burn. You can read that here or you can start from the beginning and catch up here.

Fan Fiction Updates and DurtyNelly Q&A  

Thursday, August 27, 2009

I'm really trying my best to get the ball rolling on this blog. I enjoy a sense of order and organization when it comes to posts. I haven't decided what day I'll be posting FF Recs each week but I do know one thing for sure...when a Twific is updated I will report!!

Mrs. Robward has posted Chapter 7 of I'll Be Your Lover, Too. This is quickly becoming one of my favorites and I'm currently working on the Title Pic to put it on the sidebar with the others.

A little synopsis of I'll Be Your Lover, Too.....

Edward and Bella were childhood friends, after years apart, they're back together for their Senior Year of High School. Has their friendship out lasted the distance that's been between them or will their past spoil what could be?

If you have been keeping up with this fic then go right now and read Chapter 7: Moonlight Pucker

If you haven't read it yet than here is a little yummy...and I do mean YUMMY...preview clip!!

Oh shit! Oh shit! Oh shit! Oh shit! I think he is going to fucking kiss me!

I was frozen. My muscles in pleasurable shock from the heat of Edward body so close to mine. I had done such a good job keeping my distance from him. I had been repeatedly reminding myself he was just a friend, nothing more and that he could NEVER be more than that.

Letting your best friend become your boyfriend would only lead to hell on a fast train.

Then I failed.

Also In the Twificverse...Friday August 28th Cutie
of Super Secret Twilight Blog will be posting her Q&A session with DurtyNelly. Who is DurtyNelly? Well she is sadistic genius behind the hardcore Darkward fic Buried Among The Begonias. If you want to read it than go over to the sidebar and get caught up before jumping over to Super Secret Twilight Blog on Friday to read the Q&A. I will be posting an update on this session tomorrow since a few of my questions will be appearing during it.
