Fanfiction and the epicness that is Twilight

So it's no secret that I love me some Twilight fanfiction. Mostly, I stick to the all human variety. I have yet to read a Twilight fic where any of the characters are actually vampires. I have only ever read one fic that stars Rob and I really didn't like it. It felt a little skeevy to be reading these explicit sex scenes about an actual person. But let's face it - when we are reading are Twi fics, we are totally picturing Rob.

NEWAYS, I talk about fanfiction all the time. And I finally badgered my roomie into writing her own. She has never read or written any Twific, but she is a writer and has had forays into BSB fanfic. (Maybe I wasn't supposed to reveal that. Shhhh...) Don't judge, bitches, You know you read it back in the day.

Anyway, the whole point of this fanfic ramble is that I am so excited that she has finally written a fic and she has graciously asked me to be her beta. ME!!! It's really cool to be in on the ground floor of a fic and she is actually going to let me help her come up with a name. And best believe as soon as I can convince her of her awesomeness, she will be posting it on Twilighted and I will totes be pimping it here. So look out for it. Oh, and here are some of my fave fanfics. PLEASE list some of your faves in the comments. I will heart you forever. I am always on the look-out for fresh Twi porn.

The Blessing and The Curse
Wide Awake
Clipped Wings and Inked Armor
The Office
The Dominant
The Submissive

My fave fics are angsty. THE fanfic to read is Wide Awake. If you never read another fic, you must read this one. The Blessing and The Curse is def. my second fave. Anyone, if you can suggest any angsty fics, that would be great. I like my Edward fucked up...

Secondly, I finished reading Twilight...again. And each and every time I finish it, this wave of EPIC rolls over me. You can almost forget how amazing the book is until you read passages like this:

"You're wrong, you know," he said quietly.
"What?" I gasped.
"I can feel what you're feeling now - and you are worth it."

I mean, how beautiful is that? Who hasn't felt unworthy at some point in their life? And it really breaks my heart to read that every time.

I still manage to tear up at Bella's letter everytime:
"I love you. I am so sorry. He has my mom and I have to try. I know it may not work. I am so very, very sorry. Don't be angry with Alice and Jasper. If I get away from them it will be a miracle. Tell them thank you for me. Alice especially, please. And please, please don't come after him. That's what he wants. I think. I can't bear it if anyone has to be hurt because of me, especially you. Please, this is the only thing I can ask you now. For me. I love you. Forgive me."

Bella's numbness and acceptance of her fate is chilling:
"Alice and Jasper spent a long time looking at the departing flights board. I could hear them discussing the pros and cons of New York, Atlanta, Chicago. Places I'd never seen. And would never see."

Stephenie so easily paints a vivid and sad picture:
"I couldn't help imagining Edward, where he would stand at the edge of the road when he found the end of my trail. I couldn't cry yet, I told myself. I still had a long way to go."

I forget how really sad and beautiful the story is until I read it again. It is so easy for all of us (myself included) to poke fun at our favorite subject. There is so much cheese surrounding the movies and the stars, but when I go back to the basics and just read the words, I remember why I fell in love with the story. I just felt like I should take the time to be serious for a minute and write about my true appreciation for the stories. With that being said...I am going to read New Moon. I only have 37 days to finish it before I get to see it in action!

P.S. Don't think I didn't notice you new follower...cuz I did. Thanks Peggy W!! I love my followers. I send you a very sexually frustrated Edward. Stephenie Meyer just constantly cock blocks him. Think you can help him?

  1. Did you read Breathe Me yet? I just started reading that and I'm on chap 15 (well right now there's only 16 chaps) but it's sooooooo good. Next I'm going to tackle that Emacipation Proclomation (I think that's what it's called) Anyhoo. My freaking fanfic is preventing me from finishing my Sookie books! Arghh!!
