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!
Battening down for the Polar Vortex Redux. This weather makes me say a lot of swears.
You know the drill! Tell'em ADF sent you!
Good Times at Masen's by Isannah
Good drinks, good food, and good company. That's what makes Good Times the place to be. What happens when Bella Swan offers owner Edward Masen more? AH, rated M for language and lemons.
Definitley good times happening at Masen's! Let's watch as Edward attempts to not bang the babysitter. No doubt this will be an epic fail, and I can't wait to bask in his defeat.
You Belong to Me by Emmamama88
Army Sergeant Edward Colonna returns home after six years overseas, only to find the love of his life in one, Isabella Swan. Can their love survive the test of time when he is sent away again? (Set during the Korean War era; late 1940's to early 1950's). Originally written for the Christmas Wishes Compilation..This is an expanded version.
As with most wartime stories, there is a bit of drama involved. I am totally in love with Edward's rowdy Italian Colonna family and Bella's female dominated Irish Swan family. And, no, they don't all marry each other. :) There are some good original characters. The story is set to take place over a few years during the Korean War, but the author really keeps the pace moving so the years aren't dragging out.
The Cutting Edge by savannavansmutsmut
Bella's life had been hard for years after her parents death, but she managed to pull it together, graduate and get through cosmetology school in order to support herself. Now a new opportunity that sounds too good to be true is presented by a handsome businessman. Could she be getting into more than she bargained for? Adopted from Dollybigmomma.
Edward and Bella become partners in a new salon. This one is funny with a cast of unique characters.
FLASH BACK FIC DIVE:
Hatchet by prettykittyartist
Edward Cullen rules Forks. He does what he wants, when he wants. What happens when he meets his match and she's got a lesson or two for him to learn?
Fun romp with a cocky Edward and a hatchet wielding Bella. Love B's family.
Letters to Corporal Masen by solostintwilight
Writing to offer a bit of home to a soldier overseas, she discovers words can bind a friendship. Lonely in war torn Europe, he finds hope in letters from a stranger. What happens when the war is over?
This gal has done her research! This story shows amazing detail of how life was stateside during WWII. I enjoy stories that come with a little history lesson, and she gives some great info at the end of each chapter.
When Will I Know by deb24601
You don't get over Edward Cullen. Even when he was never really yours. A story about wanting, needing and, eventually, knowing. AH. Inspired by Jan 2012 Witfit prompts.
Bella lives an unenviable life of loving Edward from afar. She moves on; living with an uninspired and predictable life plan....until Edward throws a wrench, or two, into the works!
As always, your feedback keeps me inspired to keep diving! Please let me know what you are loving, or which stories have fizzled out for you.
