At least you get to reap the benefits :)
Edward and Ben grew up closer than best friends, but Ben was really Bella, forced to pose as a boy by her insane mother. Separated as teens, years later they reconnect, how will Edward react when he learns the truth?
Genre: Pretends to be a boy, Richward
I first read the summary of this story and was like: O_o...that's...different. I decided to give it a try and I'm so glad I did. The story doesn't really focus on Bella's time dressed as a boy, it's more about her and Edward reuniting several years later. Lies of the Soul is well-written, complete and definitely not something you have ever read before!
Sometimes the wolf chooses an imprint that surprises everyone. The pairing seems completely wrong on the surface. But as the two strive to make their relationship work, will they find the wolf knew what he was doing after all?
Genre: New Moon AU, Wolfpack fic, Non-Canon
Yeah...it's another Paul/Bella story. I can't stay away! The Paul in this story is the overbearing ass we all know and love to hate. I am thoroughly enjoying Hammer and a Nail, there are eight chapters up right now and things will be heating up soon!
Bella has moved to the city to get away from Forks. She takes a gig giving guitar lessons on weekends for extra cash, in result meeting someone who might get her to change her loner ways...
Genre: Femslash, Non-Canon
I was so happy to find this little gem. Good femslash is hard to come by and this one impressed me a lot. Bella is kind of a tomboy, Alice is a girly-girl and somehow they fit perfectly. What cracked me up was the author's description of Edward:
One of the two bartenders was a pasty skinned guy with crazy hair that looked like he had just stood in front of a shop fan on super high, then just slathered gel through it, and thought it looked hot. I thought that it would come in handy if the roof fell in; he would have plenty of protection with his stupid hair-don't. He slid up to me and gave a crooked grin that I am sure he thought was as sexy as his hair, and I puked a little in my mouth.
"What can I do for you, sweetheart?" he asked in a voice I'm sure he also thought sounded like velvet, only it sounded as gross and scratchy as the five o' clock shadow on his chin.
"Two shots of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey, if you've got it, and a bottle of Heineken." He raised his bushy eyebrows at me, and I almost asked him if wanted me to shoot around the corner to the drugstore and pick him up a pair of tweezers, but he flipped around to fill my order. Good boy. I'll call you Jimmy Neutron.
Now all I can picture is this:
Those are my recs for this week, I hope you found something new to read!
Until next time...
P.S. Be sure to leave these authors some love and let them know we sent ya *winks*
One last thing...did anyone else know that The Vampire in the Basement is now complete?! I did a little happy dance when I saw that. This was one of the first fics I ever read and I was so disappointed when the author stopped updating. Apparently she returned at some point and finished! So if you haven't checked out The Vampire in the Basement, go do it! It is one of the most original plots I have ever read and you will fall in love with michellephants's Vampward.
Okay really....I'm going now....happy reading!
