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?

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

    Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like my story! I started this story because I was so unhappy with the way Bella took Edward back in New Moon - I wanted to see her raise a some hell and grow a backbone! I'm also so happy with the way so many people have taken to Mick. I told my DH I was going to have to ask for a cut of the DVD sales at this rate ;)

    Thank you again - it means the world to me to know that you like my story!

    I really can't get enough of this story. It is really imaginative and don't worry if you haven't seen Moonlight...because I didn't and FLH does such a great job with her storytelling, that you don't miss anything.
