Diving Deep for Fan Fic Treasures

Each week I will brave the treacherous waters of Fan Fiction for buried treasure. Below are the gems I've found this week!

I found a nice chunk of treasure this week. 
I'm really excited for a few of these! 
Not so much angst this week.

Make sure you let'em know you found them in the Forest!

The Lost by mamasutra
Bella Swan was not normal. She had been born with the gift of seeing the dead, but to her it was a curse. She had sworn off her abilities as she returned to her hometown to live out her final year of high school in an attempt at being normal, but nothing is normal when you are the one hope at redemption for the spirit of a lost boy. *paranormal romance & drama*

Bella sees dead people which has caused Renee to commit her on several occasions. Now with Charlie, she's trying to ignore the spirits that seek her in order to appear "normal." Edward is a storied spirit that won't take no for an answer. Love this one! 

Unexpected by opal aline
Unhappy with where life has taken her, Bella seeks a second chance in Hollywood. A struggling single mother, will life get the better of her or take her to unexpected places.

After leaving her cheating jerk husband, Bella relocates to L.A. to start over. Guess who she "unexpected"-ly works for?  He's as dreamy as ever. *sighs*

Summer Rose by natalayx

When Edward is on his summer leave from the Military, Bella finds out she's pregnant, the day before he's due to deploy back. When something goes wrong on a raid, Bella is left scared and anxious; wondering if Edward will make it home to meet their Summer Rose.

Sweet story so far, but you can feel the dramz coming. 

About A Boy by DeeBee7
The story of a free man, a town full of Nanna's and Poppa's, and a little boy called Lucky.

Edward, after serving jail time for the accidental (or so he claims) torching of the local community center, moves back to Forks.  He's cluelessly trying to adapt to life outside.  The quirky townies are keeping this one fun.

Edward Cullen & Friends - Down on the Bayou by Dinia Steel
Sequel to Edward Cullen, FBI Special Agent & Psychic - Edward Cullen is still an FBI Special Agent now visiting his friends, Sam, Angela and Lauren, who own a house boat in the Atchafalaya Basin, with Bella Swan who's no longer with the LAPD. The plan is to start a detective agency with Bella as a full partner. What strangeness will they find in the Louisiana Swamps.

I liked the first story, so I'll keep up with this one as well.  I don't really have any "triggers" we hear so much about, but I have to say that prologue in this one creeped me out.  Also, finally some B&E action!

Pick Up Line by SingoftheLionandLamb
"Hello, I'm Edward Cullen and I would shake your hand but that sign over there says not to touch the masterpieces." Edward, a single and wealthy businessman, gets dared to pick up a girl and it worked out better than he could ever imagined. In fact, she pushes him against a wall, kisses him, and then runs off. AH.

Cute story.  Bella is trying really hard to resist Edward's silly lines and his eccentric brothers.


Do Over by TKegl

Every Christmas Eve, Edward Cullen sits in a bar and regrets the decision he made ten years earlier that tore Bella from him. But when he gets a second chance to right that wrong, it's not quite what he expected.

Empires of the Mind by Hibbleton78
When Bella learns her "ability" is more than a quirk, she must work with new friends to thwart the corrupt organization looking to exploit their powers for personal gain. All human. Complete at 17 chapters.

Thanks for your love for this Campfire! A special thanks to those of you who give me your feedback each week!

Maps To The Stars Trailer

Sunday April 20, 2014 at 7:33 PM

Not sure if anyone else posted this... The trailer looks pretty awesome. Definitely gives off a very dark vibe. And of course, Rob looks great. Can i just say this... what is it with Julianne Moore? In the space of 2 years, she's got down and dirty with Alexander Skarsgard, and Robert Pattinson, on screen. It's so unfair. And does Cronenberg have a 'car sex' fetish?



Trailer has been moved to the Interior of the CF

Nostalgia Rec: 
Summary: With just weeks to go before the wedding, Edward reveals a secret from his human life which leaves Bella shocked and wondering just how well she knows the man she is about to marry. This is very much an Edward and Bella love story. AU.

Picture This! ~ Mini Hunt

Thursday April 17, 2014 at 12:40 PM

Hello Campers!

In honor of (secular) Easter, we are going on a Mini Hunt today.

Nope, not this kind of a hunt. 

We are posting pictures of images that these words convey:

Smooth, Rough, Male, Mail, Crooked, Straight, Dark, Light, Sweet, Sour, Fast, Slow

Come check out how different our interpretations can be.  If you don't have pictures to share, please feel free to join in and comment anyway. 

Happy Easter!  (both religious and non-religious)

For next week:

Let's get a little NOSTALGIC.  Show us those bowl cuts and mullet hair styles.  Show us your feathered bangs, or your bangs standing straight up with a ridiculous amount of hairspray.  Or show us your favorite outfit when you were younger that really captures that decade's style.  Bell bottoms, check!  Overalls, check!  Flannel plaid shirts, check!


X-Men Days of Future Past
