::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday Saturday Edition

Gather round my little sparklies cuz it's story time! Does everyone have their Twilight fleeces and pillows? BK cups? Sparkly peens? Cullentinis? Alrighty then, let's begin.

First off, I'd like to apologize for being tardy. I had a small procedure done at the hospital yesterday. The anesthesia caused me to crash and well...oops! All is good today and I am raring to bout you?

Fan Fic acronyms to know: AU=Alternate Universe, AH=All Human, OOC=Out of Character, Canon=As Stephenie Meyer wrote it, M=Rated Mature. Stories are ranked from 1-5 Sparkles for writing skill, story and plot and overall story quality as it relates to the Twilight Universe.

The following reviews are from Cullen Sister:

I am highlighting a series/author I discovered this week. Her stories are/were on Fan, but she had problems (like so many others) with her stories getting pulled. She switched to The Writer's Coffee Shop Library, but it's new & has its' own issues. That being said, she now has her own blog. I am including the story links not only for FFn, but also to TWCSL & the blog. Never let it be said that you can't track a good story down!

Team Closerward Blog

The first story is Closer. The sequel is California Waiting. Please read in order.

Closer has a fantastic story line, but the writing left something to be desired. It is her first story. Apparently she was cranking out the chapters too fast & had issues getting a decent beta in the beginning. It is in the process of being beta'd. It improved so greatly by the end, and since the story is like nothing I've read before, along with the fact that it will be getting a facelift, I went ahead and gave it FIVE sparkles.

I literally have just read the last chapter available for the sequel, California Waiting. I am waiting on an update and hope that it comes soon! It is winding down to the last few chapters, so by the time you get there, it should be complete. I am dying to see how it wraps up. ENJOY!!!

He grabs my face, slamming my back against the wall. "YOU ARE MINE BELLA" Edward seeths with anger. "PROVE IT THEN." He pulls back on my face. "WHAT DID YOU SAY?" "I SAID FUCKING MAKE ME YOURS." A cocky Edward, confidant Bella.

California Waiting

My much awaited sequel to Closer. Much lighter, but still filled with crazy drama. Bad language, abuse, and lemons galore. Mostly cannon pairing. Angst, relief, and full of love!

Saving Bella

Jasper returns to Forks to apologize but was never prepared for what he found. Now he knows he needs to make it right. But how? Possible Lemons in the future! Non-canon AU New Moon.


Sassafrass Junction by VampishVixen

Rated: M
Type: Romance/Humor/Supernatural---AU/OOC---Nonn-Canon Couples
POV: Bella and Jasper
Status: Complete (42 chapters)
Shack Rating: * * * * *(5 sparkles!)

Sassafrass Junction

Twice abandoned, three times as heartbroken. Bella leaves Forks behind to start over in Phoenix. New Bella, new life. A familiar face shows up at work one night; Jasper can't believe his eyes, but he's liking what they see. Ditto Bella.


That's it for this week my sparklateers. If you are reading a great story or have a story you would like to see get plugged, be sure to drop us a line. And to all our American friends, please have a safe and happy holiday weekend!!

::Team Jasper:: More video of MTV interview with Jackson Rathbone.

Jackson Rathbone recalls the punch by Kellan, on the set of Eclipse, that sent him to the hospital with a concussion. Again, all I can do is stare at the boy talking *sigh*.

::Team Eclipse:: New TV Spot "It's Starting" HQ Video

::Team Edward:: Rob Pattinson Signed Hand Drawn Balloon Art Up for Bids.

There's no doubt about it: right now Robert Pattinson is the most famous actor in the world. His role as cold-skinned, warm-hearted vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie saga has propelled this young British actor to idol status almost overnight. But - perhaps taking a cue from his character, who loves humanity despite himself - Mr. Pattinson hasn't let his grueling production schedule or his mega-fame keep him from contributing regularly to causes he cares about. We're grateful that Rob made time to design this one-of-a-kind, original sketch for PACT's auction benefiting missing children, and we know you're grateful, too ... where else are you, RPattz fanatic, going to buy what may just be an original self portrait penned by Rob himself that will go to aid such a great cause? You just won't. So get excited, get that blood pumping, think about Edward Cullen's eyes and go bid now!

Bidding is for the PACT (Parents and Abducted Children Together) Charity.
