Fan Fictions

This is Part I of the list of Fan Fiction Recommendations (A-L)
>>> Jump to Part II of the list of Fan Fiction Recommendations (M-Z)

Please Read:

I've started a separate website dedicated solely to Twilight Fan Fiction called: The Lit of Twi. I have all the fan fictions listed here on the site plus more. I won't be adding anything to this page anymore. I'll only update at the other site because it's too much of a hassel to update the same thing in two locations. Thanks! =D

NEW: I've taken down the links to download a pdf file of some of these stories because I think you should have the opportunity to review the chapters on their story. They're not gone forever. I'll be starting a "Library" on my new site: The Lit of Twi shortly. I'll post on this blog when that happens. So keep track of the "Recent Updates" (upper right hand corner of the page) for more news.

View only Completed Fan Fictions.

New to fan fictions? Read my Fan Fiction Basics. It should help you with everything you should need to know about this addicting medium.

A Child of the Night by l'heure bleue
Intro/Summary: C AH Edward Cullen is a normal boy but is detached from the world until he comes across a vision at night, dancing in a meadow. Bella Swan has a rare disease, she's allergic to sun light. Shunned by her mother, she lives alone with her father and tries not to drown in self pity. This is the story of how two disconnected people finding themselves in each other.
Why I like it: This is slightly connected to When She Smiles. You don't need to read either to appreciate the other. This one is sweet and the Bella is very vulnerable and sometimes weak but it belies the quiet strength she possesses. Edward is a normal teenager being thrown some heavy stuff but he's loyal and loving.

A Murmur of Fire in the Vein by ElleCC
Intro/Summary: C AH Jasper/Bella One stormy Seattle night, the last person Bella expects to see appears without warning at her door. How will history—hers and his—impact their unexpected and growing friendship?
Why I like it: Very engrossing and very easy to get lost in the story. I just kept reading and before you know it it's one in the morning. This story is very OOC so for people who can't see Bella being shipped by anyone else but Edward, this one isn't for you. In this story Bella was with Edward and Alice was with Jasper but their relationships didn't work out and on a chance meeting, they developed a friendship that went beyond "oh you were their boyfriend/girlfriend". Life is about chances, second ones too.

A Person of Worth by tnuccio
Intro/Summary: NC AH Chicago. Bella has no parents. She is an aspiring poet going to school at Chicago State and working at a library. Edward Dr. Edward Cullen is a work-a-holic who likes to go to open mike night at jazz bars. Bella sees him on the stage. He sees her on the train. They don't meet until circumstances are just right with a nudge by their friends in the right direction. Can their rocky budding relationship withstand the memories and burdens of their pasts?
Why I like it: It can be dark during memory flashbacks and it can be light with talking over pie. There's also a little girl named Hope that's a wonderful original character. The plot is filled with drama wanting me to know what's going to happen next. Unfortunately updates are far between.

A Rite of Passage by caracol
Intro/Summary: C AH OOC Bella and Edward are best friends. A story of self discovery and a loss of innocence. This story is about how two people deal with sex, love, trust, friendship all while growing up.
Why I like it: This story is simplistically beautiful. It's fairly short but very well written. The imagery and emotions you go through in fifteen chapters are mesmerizing. There is a sequel titled "The Way Back" scroll down for my review.
Tags: High school, Discovery, Angst

A Rough Start by ItzMegan73
Intro/Summary: NC AH Overnight irresponsible Edward goes from bachelor to father of a 5 yr old. Meanwhile responsible, prepared Bella begins her first job as Kindergarten teacher at Forks Elementary. When irresponsible meets the epitome of responsible, sparks will fly!
Why I like it: This is steeped in reality. Hard life and hard choices are around every corner for these characters. It explores the decent and the decrepitness of people. Edward isn't organized and doesn't have his life in order very well and Bella is a little too organized and controlling of her life. They balance each other out but not without a few bumps along the way. Also, I love this author. I eat up anything she's written.

A Tangible Dichotomy by PerfectivelyPersuasive
Intro/Summary: NC AH Slash. Not everything makes sense to us at first, but sometimes, the paradoxes in life are exactly what we never knew we needed. When Jasper and Edward and thrown together, into a dorm room no less, who are they to deny the twisted logic of fate?
Why I like it: Some may feel like they can't read about same sex pairings. That's ok. I'm totally cool 'cuz it's all love. In this story, it's the exciting first love and Edward is really discovering himself and Jasper is struggling with issues he has surrounding his father. There's a lot of Unsatisfied Sexual Tension (UST) but it's humorous and realistically solved.

A World Without Sound by The Romanticidal Edwardian
Intro/Summary: C AH Edward and Bella are best friends; they've known each other since they were small children. Now, seniors in high school, they're still just best friends but each secretly in love with the other but fear that acknowledging it will ruin their relationship. Can they finally open up to each other? It gets even more interesting because Edward is deaf.
Why I like it: Edward's deafness isn't a handicap for him, it's a bridge that brings him closer to Bella because they share a deep bond. It's a very sweet story with a little spice of the citrus variety. It's also a complete story. Edward's vulnerability and angst about his deafness makes for some great drama.

An Introduction to Swirl and Daisy by m81170
Intro/Summary: NC AH A first kiss, a first dance, a first curse word shared between best friends. This is the tale of a boring young geek and the social pariah who thought the world of him. A tale of growing up. A tale of a Non-Romantic Romance.
Why I like it: It's very sweet, innocent, fresh, fluffy and really takes me back to when I was that age. Her diary entries sound like something I like and you feel the same emotions Bella does. Edward is cute (in an awww kind of way) and the whole thing if fun, funny and well written.
Tags: High School, Discovery, Angst, Romance, Comedy

Alphabet Weekends by the-glory-days
Intro/Summary: C AH Edward and Bella work, go to college, are best friends, each single, and live together. They both have pent up physical frustration and decide to satisfy their needs with a game: Alphabet Weekends, to spice up their boring lives.
Why I like it: Lemons are hot in this, plus the plot keeps you curious for more character development.
Tags: College, Smut

An Unfortunate Look into Bella's Lovesick Phyche by inthestars
Intro/Summary: C AH Bella is the new girl in Forks and Jessica and Mike take it upon themselves to get her into the right crowd. During lunch she spots a guy reading poetry by the vending machine and crushes bad only to have Jessica come and "save" her for social suicide. Apparently, Edward Cullen, a poetry reading, keeps to himself guy is certified dangerous. The evidence: he brought a gun to school. Drama occurs.
Why I like it: You crush on Edward right along with Bella and eventually get to unravel the mystery that is Edward Cullen. The characters are fun and well written and the story propels them to their eventual end. Plus, it's completed and not too long. A really great read.

Ars Moriendi by vanilladoubleshot
Intro/Summary: NC OTHER Edward lived a human life until the age of seventeen – current to the start of the story – when, upon his sudden death, he became an incubus. In the lore of this story, incubi are ghostly creatures who feed via performing sexual acts on their sleeping victims, slowly leeching them of their life essence (to the point of death, if repeated feedings occur from the same individual with no regard to their failing health). He has no memories of his human life at the onset of his “life” as an incubus.
Why I like it: It's so different! It's compelling and you're dying for an update. Note: I think this is on hiatus, she hasn't updated in a while so if you need a few chapters to read in between fic updates, this isn't a bad way to go.
Tags: High school, Supernatural, Smut

Bella Swan: Kidnapper by Kambria Rain
Intro/Summary: C AH OOC "Um. Hi. I don’t really know how to say this, but I have your kids with me, and I was thinking maybe you would like them back. So yeah… call me."
Why I like it: I re-read it the day after I finished it because it's such a great piece. Very funny and I love all the characters. Read it now!
Tags: Work force, Child(ren), Romance, Comedy

Bella Swan: Zombie Killer by Kristen Nicole
Intro/Summary: NC AH/AU Zombies have overtaken the continental US. Thus sets the backdrop for an epic love story involving a boy, a girl, and her trusty shovel.
Why I like it: This is so fun and just out there. There are characters from all over the spectrum and lots of zombie danger. It's just a fun read. Only a few chapters so far but it's one to watch. Plus, lots of nerdy references. Woot!
Tags: Supernatural, Action, Romance

Bonne Foi by Amethyst Jackson
Intro/Summary: NC AU Edward is a vampire hunting for his next victim: a damsel in distress this time. When the allure of Bella's scent draws him to her he can't help but play around with his prey but the lure of Bella's silent thoughts whet a darker more primitive hunger.
Why I like it: I think this fic was the first fic that had a recognizable Dark-ward (bad vampire Edward). I don't normally like vamp-fics but this one goes more into the backgrounds and emotions of its characters. This story is told solely from Edward's POV so there is none of the switching back and forth that can be a little confusing. Plus, there are some nice lemons which doesn't hurt.
Tags: College, Smut, Action, Romance

Breaking Bella by sixeightshuffle
Intro/Summary: NC AH There's some major UST going on, and I like how the author does it. Edward needs to pass his Statistics class and Bella's the only tutor available but first impressions can be hard to live down. She thinks he's an asshole and he thinks she's bipolar. Can they get over themselves and come to realize that they're perfect for each other or will their egos get in the way?
Why I like it: I really like how every thing unfolds. The supporting cast plays their integral roles and you can't imagine the story without them. The UST is funny and really well done.
Tags: High school, Discovery, Angst, Romance

Breaking Trinity by VvDeadRosesvV
Intro/Summary: NC AH Mid-Semester, Senior Year. Bella is escaping Arizona and starting over in Washington. An unexpected hook-up at a party in Port Angeles turns into obsession. What happens when desire becomes too much to control?
Why I like it: I needed something smutty so I went to the (reliable) Perv Pack Smut Shack and found this little tasty morsel. It starts really hot but it's not just gratuitous smut, there's actually a plot and some nail/fist biting drama.
Tags: High school, Angst, Hurt, Smut

C 5 6 by ss10
Intro/Summary: C AH People just assume that you're my nurse." Edward is a quadriplegic, 10 years after his accident he meets Bella — a socially inept wanderer. Together they come to an understanding, one that challenges all palpable perceptions.
Why I like it: The characters feel very real, not dramatized at all. They're both vulnerable and strong in their own right and they're both working it out together. For me though, it ends rather suddenly and looking back, the whole progression of their relationship is really quick and there are some loose ends that aren't that important but it doesn't give a satisfying "end" feeling. 16 chapters, so a quick and unique read.
Tags: Workforce, Comfort, Romance

Caged Bird by Kristen Nicole
Intro/Summary: C AH Shy Bella Swan lives with her religiously zealous mother, RenĂ©e. When she has a chance meeting with town hellion Edward, Bella begins to realize that perhaps the sheltered life she's been leading isn't so much a comfort as it a cage.
Why I like it: Beautifully written, a real page turner. Not too long but not too short. I finished in about a day. My only qualm, which is really tiny and insignificant, is Edward's quickness to love Bella. Otherwise, I'm really really glad I read it. It's a fic that you re-play in your head all day.

Carpe Noctem & Fiat Lux by queenofgrey
Intro/Summary: C AU Bella tends bar in sleepy Forks wondering why she's wasting her life but her life changes when she's almost killed. Edward, alone, buys a house and tries to start a new life in Forks. He's getting the feel of the town in a little bar and as he's throwing up all the beer that he's been consuming in the bathroom someone, with a mind altering scent, comes in. He almost kills her but he wants her blood so badly. Bella's insatiable curiosity to understand why some stranger wants to kill her and Edward's desire need to have her blood consumes them both.
Why I like it: It's vivid with it's descriptions, especially with Edward's reaction to Bella's smell. The Cullen siblings are showing their cohesiveness that I haven't seen in may fics and I absolutely love their bonds with each other because it reminds me of mine.
Tags: Work force, Drama

Cien Anos De Soledad by HappyInLove
Intro/Summary: C AH This is a story of a girl, finding herself in Guatemala & Seattle; a child, shuffled, loved, and growing; a boy, figuring out what makes a man; and a family, expanding and understanding what unconditional hope and love look like.
Why I like it: A giant hug and thank you to my friend who told me I "had to read this". It's so amazing. The writing is superb but his lost amidst the imagery and realistic lives of her characters. Heartfail at time, it'll pick you up with a goofy smile on your face.
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Comfort, Romance

Clipped Wings and Inked Armor by hunterhunting
Intro/Summary: C AH OOC Haunted by her past, Bella is broken and alone. Starting over, can she let go of the guilt that consumes her when she meets a beautiful tattoo artist or will his own personal demons destroy them first?
Why I like it: I never gave much thought to pierceings and tattoos but both on Edward is fuckhot. Besides the hotness, their stories are really dark and interesting. This will be a classic in the "fics you need to read before you die" sense.
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Hurt, Comfort, Drama, Romance, Smut

Collision of Worlds by The Romanticidal Edwardian
Intro/Summary: NC AH Bella is Mrs. Cellophane (think Chicago, the musical). No one sees or notices her. People step, bump, sit, crash, or just don't notice her. She's also a budding photographer. Edward is a big name actor but he's shy, humble and lonely. They meet, fall in love and then ... well I don't know because TRE hasn't updated in a while.
Why I like it: Bella is so lovable. I can totally connect with her (not the invisible part but the other things =T). It's 'Notting Hill' -esk. Only a few chapters so far.
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Romance

Creature of Habit by EZRoksAngel
Intro/Summary: C AU Bella lands a job right out of college and it's as a personal assistant to Edward Cullen who heads the Pacific Northwest Trust. Edward's private and secluded life leads our curious Bella to discover what kind of man he might or might not be.
Why I like it: I'm not a fan of AU in general. This is an OK read. The tension between B and E is good and makes for some great chapter fodder, jokes are good, Bella is the right mix of intelligent, sexy and stubborn. I read it while waiting for better fics to update.
Tags: Work force, Romance, Action

Dangerous Affections by wishimight
Intro/Summary: C? AH Edward Cullen is an assassin working for the Volturi and Isabella Maria Swan 23/F is his next target.
Why I like it: Edward is like Blackstone's Jason Bourne (yea the movie) so it's a different take on Edward. The writing can be cheesy at time turning the most quoted quotes from the books on-end and switching the context. Still, it's pretty good and a bit mysterious. Note: This got taken down a while ago. I don't have the completed story but I do have most of the chapters available to download. If anyone has a completed one, please share. Thanks.

Devil's Angel by ObsessingOverEdward
Intro/Summary: C AH Edward Mason distracts himself with his Harley, freedom and the many women he has waiting for him up and down the California coast, that was until he met his Beauty who turned his world upside down.
Why I like it: There isn't anything you could do to Edward that would make him less-hot. It seems like when you take him out of cannon, he becomes hotter. This is biker Edward. His "fuck you all" attitude, dark past and a beautiful brunette make for some good time filled with the drama of real life.

DID by dollegirl
Intro/Summary: Hiatus NC AH What happens when Bella saves Edward from the clutches of a skank in a coffee shop? He wants her to be his girlfriend of course! The problem is, they only just met. Will she say yes?
Why I like it: By chapter 6 I was literally Laughing Out Loud. Not just a chuckle but an eye-clenching, head thrown back, clutching my stomach kind of laughter. It's so creative and fun. Edward is all awkward and Bella is shy with your usual feisty Rosalie, hyper Alice, inappropriate Emmett and laid back Jasper, not to mention an horny Esme. This is a WIP and it's been on haitus for months. Read what she has if you're bored or in between updates.
Tags: Work force, Romance, Comedy

Down & Across by hmonster4 and TheHeartOf Life
Intro/Summary: C AH Emmett/Rosalie 20 down: feeling deep affection or passion for; 17 across: to believe, desire, or trust. A daily fix of summertime fluff about a small town boy, a big city girl, and what happens when they give into the simple things in life.
Why I like it: This is very light, fun and a great fic to get you smiling again after another angsty fic has torn your heart out and made you cry at 2am. Rosalie isn't written as the standard fan-fiction Rosalie (either the cold bitch bent of ruining everyone's life, or the awesome college roommate who you can't live without). Emmett is still a big teddy bear but he has substance. He has motives, good and bad days. It's really nice to see him shine. When Emmett is written well, everyone wins.
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Romance

EARTHQUAKE! by Thallium81
Intro/Summary: C AH When a virgin is kidnapped in the jungles of Isle Esme, a daring anthropologist rushes in to the rescue. But will they be able to escape the island before falling victim to the predators, natives, and pirates?
Why I like it: Wonderful! It's interesting, suspenseful, funny, I could go on and on. Not angsty at all but not uber fluffy. It's mystery and it's adventure, so saddle up!
Tags: Workforce, Romance, Comedy, Action

Edward Wallbanger by feathersmmmm
Intro/Summary: NC AH Bella moves into a fantastic apartment building in San Francisco. Guess who lives next door? With walls thin the tension is gonna be thick...
Why I like it: When I started this, I really wasn't in the mindset to read smut but everyone was raving about how awesome it is and that I had to read it. So I read it and of course it's perfect! It's just a few chapters in so there isn't too much smutty action (but there's sure to be in the future) but this fic is really really funny. From an original character named Clive to running into a sweaty Edward in the hall, it's just all kinds of win. I highly recommend reading it.
Tags: Work force, Drama, Smut, Romance, Comedy

Eight Days A Week by 107yearoldvirgin
Intro/Summary: C AH Bella Swan needs a Nanny. Edward Cullen needs a job. Accepting the Manny position will change his life forever...and may just help him grow up in the process. Snark, humor, lemons and Edward in a towel. Seduction has never been so juvenile.
Why I like it: Edward taking care of kids is my Kryptonite. In this story he's a male nanny... a Manny. Cute but one of my best friends is named Emmanuel and I call him Mani so it's weird for me to call Edward a Manny.. even in my head... Anyway, this story is getting off to a great start. He's my Towelward. =D~
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Hurt, Comfort, Drama, Child(ren), Romance

Elemental by TallulahBelle
Intro/Summary: NC AH/AU When the Swans return to their birthplace, Bella learns she is no ordinary teenager, and Forks is no ordinary town. Can she fulfill her destiny with the powerful Edward Cullen, or will the dark forces that threaten their families destroy them all?
Why I like it: This is an AU story because it involves "magic" I guess I'd call it. There are no dragons and no one names a sword so it's not completely Fantasy. It's captivating. We're learning this new world right along with Bella and it's exciting. It's filled with drama and the characters are strong. However, skip the prologue/Chapter 1. It's so confusing and you really don't need to read it. When you click on the link, it'll take you to Chapter 2 which is a much better starting off point. :0)

Emancipation Proclamation by kharizzmatik
Intro/Summary: NC AH Edward grew up in a life of money, power, & respect. Isabella was born into slavery and has never known another way. Their worlds collide & neither will ever be the same again. Will he give her freedom? Can he bear to ever let her go? This story takes place in 2005.
Why I like it: The whole slave/owner dynamic with Bella and the Cullen family add a very unique and sometimes heartfail twist on the typical boy meets girl, boy falls for girl but they can't be together story. It's a very long story but very addicting. Note: I stopped reading somewhere between chapter 20 and 30. These chapters are long and there are a gazillion of them. It's a bit daunting. I'm going to wait until it's completed to finish reading.
Tags: High school, Angst, Drama, Discovery, Romance

Facebook Friends by GreenPuma
Intro/Summary: NC AH Bella is shocked when her sexy but standoffish lab partner, Edward, friends her on Facebook. Will Alice, convince her to accept Edward’s friend request? Or will she write it off as a prank of the conceited, spoiled rich kid she knows him to be?
Why I like it: I love music and GreenPuma uses a lot of really really good music in her chapters and as inspiration. It's very high school drama but it's sweet and there are really wonderful moments. Good little read.
Tags: High school, Discovery, Angst, Romance

Faking It by spanglemaker9
Intro/Summary: C AH Half of Hollywood’s most famous couples are faking it. That’s how Bella Swan’s publicist convinces her to pretend to date troubled Hollywood bad boy Edward Cullen. And she'll do anything for her band and her music.
Why I like it: The first three chapters are really slow so it's hard to get into the story. It's mostly exposition and setting up the "arrangement" but from then on out it's fun times. Edward never sounded so sexy =P
Tags: Work force, Drama, Romance

Fourteen by crimsonmarie
Intro/Summary: C AH High school is brutal. It's even worse when you're not a size two. Worse than that? Having a major crush on the biggest, hottest jerk in high school. Even worse than that? Being paired up with him for a science project.
Why I like it: First, she's an awesome writer. This story encapsulates and plays out the insecurities of a very typical teenage girl. It's brilliant in its characters, the flow of the chapters is so fluid and you're not conscience that you're hitting the next chapter button until there aren't any more. It feels like a completed story at 12 chapters. It's stunning and poignant. I highly recommend this story and any others by crimsonmarie.
Tags: High school, Discovery, Hurt, Comfort, Romance

Geek Love by SassenachWench
Intro/Summary: C AH Humor, romance, healing and rampant geekitude collide in this Edward & Bella love story. A funny, quirky love story about two computer geeks whose playful friendship turns into something more.
Why I like it: Please read the author's warning at the start of the first chapter. This story may not be suitable for all readers. That being said, I greatly enjoyed this. It got really deep and heavy but I love all forms of geeky-ness. Science, nerd talk, etc. Edward and Bella are awkward, socially inept and clueless. It's fun and sweet with a bit of darkness to balance it out.
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Comfort, Drama, Romance, Comedy

Grasping Darkness by KiyaRaven
Intro/Summary: NC AU A dark angel visits Bella Swan in her dreams, filling her with lust and unparalleled pleasure, but what happens when the line between fantasy and reality starts to blur?
Why I like it: This was originally just a one-shot for a contest but she's been expanding on it. A few chapters so far and it yummy hot. ;)
Tags: High school, Drama, Romance, Smut, Supernatural

Hello, Stranger by Burrberry Bugsy
Intro/Summary: NC AH A college class has everyone pairing up as married couples for 28 days. But how hard would it be to focus on passing the class when you've been paired up with your worst enemy's girlfriend? How much worse would it be if you actually started to fall for her?
Why I like it: Such a weird idea right? Doesn't matter. It makes for great drama! I really really like this story. But she hasn't updated in forever and I'm getting anxious because it feels like the story is winding down.
Tags: College, Discovery, Hurt, Comfort, Angst, Romance

High Anxiety by EdwardsBloodType
Intro/Summary: NC AH Cute, trendy Bella returns home to escape the heartache of her past. She immediately befriends neighbors Jasper and Edward, bonding with them in the treehouse out back. Bella and Edward discover they have more in common than they ever dreamed of.
Why I like it: I love this fic! I know I say that a lot but this is feeling like it's going to be in my top ten. Warning though! It's really long. It's just so... gah I don't even know how to describe it. It's got that sweetness, sassyness, sadness, and sexyness that all good fics have.
Tags: High school, Discovery, Hurt, Comfort, Angst, Romance

Holding Out For You by ObsessingOverEdward
Intro/Summary: C AH After her divorce, Bella starts a new life with her son. She soon meets a handsome doctor, who is dealing with his own loss and is struggling to raise his two kids. It's a story of finding strength during adversity and learning to love again.
Why I like it: I Love Dad-ward. It's so hot and endearing and stirs up all my lady parts. The interactions between parent and child and then parent and fellow parent are fun and quirky and make for some good drama. UPDATE: Ok, the previous was written when I was only at chapter 8, now I'm at chapter 26 and holy crap is this fic good! There are 50 chapters to the story plus a few out takes. This is so good. Rated M by the way. Note: Re-reading it, the beginning is a bit slow. I think it was better the first time around.

How to Hear by The Romanticidal Edwardian
Intro/Summary: NC AH The sequel to A World Without Sound. Just as good but isn't as far along as I want it to be.
Why I like it: AWWS was awesome and this just continues the awesomeness.
Tags: College, Angst, Child(ren), Romance

If Love Could Light a Candle by Pastiche Pen
Intro/Summary: AU C Edward Cullen is a vampire, telepath and a psychologist. When a new patient ignites new feelings within him, can he reconcile his past with his present and possible his future?
Why I like it: Every chapter flashes back to his "rebellious" time when he left the Cullens to feed on corrupted humans which relates to the present situation somehow. It's good but a chaotic at times and, for me, fast paced.
Tags: Work force, Discovery, Drama, Romance, Action

In Another Life by the_glory_days
Intro/Summary: C AH/AU A retelling of Twilight (rated T for teens). When Edward Cullen is killed in a car accident, it’s Bella Swan who finds herself helping his ghost find out why he died. All told from Bella's point of view.
Why I like it: It's different and really good. Edward is a ghost and his "vampire" powers are explained as being attributed to being dead/a ghost. Bella is the only one that can see him though and together the go through the who Twilight book but try to discover why/how he died. In This Life are a few chapters of this story but told from Edward's point of view.

Inked by ARenee363
Intro/Summary: C AH OOC Edward is a college student/tattoo artist when Bella stumbles into his shop to get another tattoo and ends up in one of his classes. What happens when sexual tension erupts? Will they realize they are perfect for each other?
Why I like it: This is an ok story. Read it if you're between fics. The characters are predictable and a bit shallow. Read Clipped Wings and Inked Armor (scroll up for review) if you want UST and sexy tattoos and piercings. Note: In all honesty and full disclosure, I've got to say that I have yet to finish this story. It just seemed really predictable and I have other stories to read.

Into they Mystic by 107yearoldvirgin
Intro/Summary: C AH Bella Swan has a wall up and it's about to come crashing down. Working with Edward Cullen for 3 years, she's never spoken to him, until a new marketing project forces them to interact. Can he crack her shell? "WTF? Did he just mouth 'semen'?"
Why I like it: The first few chapters hooked me so I had to finish. Overall is a pretty good angst fic with some pretty good lovin' action going on. Her characters are cookie cutter and sometime over the top predicable (hyper, shopping loving Alice and ice bitch Rosalie, etc.). The ending is really long and slow but there are really sweet and profound moments through out the whole story that makes it endearing.

Just Got Lucky by Authenticstar
Intro/Summary: C AH Rosalie wins the lottery along with a date with the infamous actor Edward Cullen. She's already dating Emmet and offers Bella her date. Bella accepts, but has no clue who the actor is. Indifference turns into humor which turns into something else.
Why I like it: Bella is strong and very OOC. Edward is jaded but sentimental. It's a fun read, a bit predictable, but not boring. There are lots of people laughing/crying which kind of annoys me at times. Note: Towards the end of the story something happens to Bella and Edward gives something to her to help her. This whole situation is completely ridiculous and killed to story for me. I haven't gone back to finish this story.

Keyless by The Romanticidal Edwardian
Intro/Summary: Haitus? NC AH Bella is taciturn, jumpy and a total mystery. That's what fascinates Edward but Edward has a problem that doesn't make figuring out who Bella Swan is any easier.
Why I like it: First it's TRE so you know it's going to be good. Their quirks add that unique touch that makes you want to click to the next chapter and keep reading. Problem is, she hasn't updated in forever.

Leaf Dances by ShilohPR
Intro/Summary: NC AH OOC Edward Cullen has just quit his high paying cubicle job and has moved to Forks to find his sanity again. He ends up buying a cabin and his closest neighbors are the Crowleys: Tyler and Isabella Crowley. He hears from the previous tenants and others from town that Tyler's wife Isabella is very unstable, crazy is more like it. But the more he sees, the more intrigued he is by her.
Why I like it: It's different. Like how The Mirrors is different. It's very OOC. You can totally understand Edward's need to get away and you're just as curious as he is about these very interesting neighbors. Note: Hardly never updates. =(

Lessons Learned by mistyhaze420
Intro/Summary: NC AH Slash. Jasper and Edward become the best of friends through similar tragic events in their lives. Edward, the geeky messed up kid, soon starts getting some lessons from bad boy, Jasper on how to fit in... What will E end up teaching him?
Why I like it: This does portray a homosexual relationship so if you don't read that kind of stuff (slash) then this isn't the story for you. But I like it. This story has a very beautiful and innocent build up of a relationship starting in middle school and going into High School. Every character has a sorted past and they teach each other the true meaning of friendship, love and family. It's wonderful.

Letters to a Swan by kerrybell
Intro/Summary: NC AH Bella is struggling with her past and present and pretty much closes herself off to live until a letter appears in her locker from a friend... but Bella doesn't have any friends. Who is this mysterious friend of hers that's making her throw herself into life once again?
Why I like it: I love the idea of a secret friend writing and leaving letters for you to find. Mix in some angst, drama, and hilarity you get one good story. I totally love this story and it is not getting enough attention.

Living Backwards by ciaobella27
Intro/Summary: NC AH/AU At 27, Bella Swan is not the mousy and shy girl she once was in high school. After hitting her head, she awakens to find herself back in 1999 during her senior year. How can you go back and repeat history when you aren’t That Bella anymore?
Why I like it: Freaking epic idea that's realized beautifully. This is badass Bella at her best and some delicious UST. So good I don't want to sleep. EDIT: Omg, so heart fail right now. Make sure you have tissue and chocolate.

Love Amungst the Ruins by theladyingrey42
Intro/Summary: C AH Bella begins a new job at a university library but she's haunted by dreams of earthquakes and the presence of a mysterious and (literally) broken Edward. Can they rescue each other from their pasts, and maybe find love in the process?
Why I like it: I like that these characters are troubled and pained for understandable reasons and not just because. They help each other work through their pain but family and mixing business with pleasure shadows their infant love. The way the author unwraps this story makes me not want to put it down.

  2. Heya,

    I've just found this website and I adore it. Seriously.

    The PDF's are brilliant, becuase of the amount of authors taking off their stories.

    Thank you so much. I would love you even more if Mr. Horrible was downloadable xD


  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Mot only did you get Mr. Horrible you got lots more of my favorite stories aswell.


  4. Wow, thank you so much! I have been trying to find a copy of Poughkeepsie for ages.


  5. Thank you very much for posting all of these. Made me smile that I have copies of all of them!

    Just wondering- How do you get Dangerous Affections on a word doc? You said you where tell us how but never did.


  6. Glad you like 'em. I think maybe I'll start in the WIPs, makes it easier once they're completed. Some of these stories are so long though and I have to format every chapter.

    Anyway, I totally forgot Dangerous Affections. Hopefully I'll have a pdf up in a few days (going to see if my friends will e-mail me their copy if they have it). I think it won some awards too so it's a pretty good story. I've just been busy with reading fic recs and updates and getting lost in them. =P

  7. This is amazing and thank you so much for the Dangerous Affections word.doc- To my best knowledge, the story was never finished.

    Can I may a tiny suggestion? Could you let people know what fanfictions you've uploaded becuase its kinda confusing to go "yes, wait no, have I got that one?" xD Well it is for me anyway!

    Also story suggestion-

    Becomes the Swan.

    When Bella and Edward meet the first day of High School, he is a chubby misfit with no friends in a new town, aside from his popular cousins. He meets Bella Swan, a well-liked, if uncoordinated, local with problems of her own. This is the story of their friendship, their loss, their love and destruction. Can they find their way back to each other? And can they survive the changes they have both gone through since the fateful day they met?

    Its a brilliant, Brilliant story- written by two amazing, funny girls.
