I know a lot of people are like "Ew, Carlisle is the dad! That's gross bla bla bla" and I felt the same way at first. The first CxB story I ever read was What Happens At Charlie's Wedding and after that I got hooked.
Carlisle is HOT and I think some people forget he was only 23 when he was turned. Sure...I guess he acts older than everyone but that just shows how reliable and mature he is, unlike some other vamps I know *cough* Edward *cough*. Plus he's a gorgeous blond doctor that denied his true nature to help preserve the lives of his food source. No biggie. And he's British. *swoon*
Needless to say, Carlisle/Bella is probably my favorite pairing. I realize this is weird but I hope that this push will inspire you guys to try out something different! These are some of my favorite Carlisle/Bella fics:
There Once Was a King by Brits23
Bella relies on pen and paper to inspire her in a monotonous world, but the written word is nothing without the right melody. She finds that melody in a man who breathes life into an endless sea of grey. He's everything-everything she can't have.
If you've read Show and Don't Tell, this story is by the same author. This is one of the most beautifully written pieces of fic I have ever read. Every time I see an update in my Inbox I squee a little because I know I will not be disappointed. The descriptions are poetic and the dialogue is magical! I love the Bella in this and Carlisle, of course, is as yummy as usual. If you're looking for something creative and extremely well-written, read this!
An Unexpected Lady by JosieSwan
After Edward leaves Bella in New Moon, a wish sends Bella to Jane Austen's England, where she meets a familiar face, Carlisle Cullen, whose control is not what it was in 2010. Knowing his secret, will she be the end to his loneliness?
Um, time travel? YES PLEASE! Vampy Carlisle in the 1800s? *is dead* I love period stories and this one is awesome! It's a nice twist to "What happens to Bella after the Cullens leave?" If you don't like Carlisle that much, this fic will definitely make you fall in love with him. He's all prim and proper...and doesn't have total control of his lusts. *winks*
What Happens At Charlie's Wedding by velvetbutterfly
Charlie's best man has Bella Swan moaning and melting everywhere, but no string attached sex suddenly becomes complicated. And what will happen when Bella meets someone else? Someone who just happens to be the best man's son.
I gotta give props to the story that started my obsession! Charlie is marrying Esme, which I think is adorable, and Carlisle is Esme's brother. When the wedding party comes to town Bella and Carlisle meet, sparks fly, yada yada yada....it's HOT! 'Nuff said.
I hope someone out there gives these fics a chance! They're well written and have really great plots, give it a go and let me know how you like them...tweet me @thewaywargirl, ya here? Make sure to leave the authors some love as well...and maybe tell them we sent ya? *winks*
I have a ton of Carlisle/Bella stories on alert, so if you'd like some more let me know!
Until next time!
Uhhh, does anyone else think there was a TON of UST in ^ that scene of NM? They were a lil flirty and NOT father/daughter. At all. Me thinks Bella's getting some side action from the good doctor....
But that's my opinion. Let me know what you thought about the Carlisle/Bella interaction in the comments!
