Hey! It’s been rumored that Lab Tech Andi had a Fan Fiction Friday Bonus. I know you weren’t expecting bonuses to be available quite so soon, but this one is special. When you get to the blue door at the back of the shack, you’ll have to knock to the rhythm of “Kumbaya” and the password is “S'mores” to gain access. Be Safe!
Friday was finally coming to a close, so when the knocks on the door started to slow down, I thought I’d relax for a bit with my friend DazzleMe Cullen and fix us a couple of Irritable Grizzlies. Suddenly, without warning, the door flew open wide, hitting the wall and warping a few of the hinges. Since Emmett and Rosalie were still supposed to be out gathering up authors to stock my lab, you can imagine my shock when a wild looking Rosalie stood in the open space. She was covered head to toe with soot while leaves and twigs were all caught up in her golden hair; I’d never seen her appear so disheveled. So, with concern, I stood from my chair to greet her, but she flashed over to me before I could get to her.
“Andi, you have to help them!!” she all but shouted at me.
“Help who, Rose? I’m a human, there’s only so much help I would be to a vampire, unless I were their lunch.” I responded back, and then started to look around her. “Where’s Emmett, Rose? He was supposed to be with you; did something happen?” I put a hand on her arm to try and calm her, but it wasn’t working.
“We were out, looking for authors like you wanted.” she walked around me to sit in my chair. “While going through Trinity, Texas, we passed a road sign for Cullen Loop; Emmett thought it was funny, so we followed it. We ended up at a YMCA youth camp called Camp Cullen. It was still early, so we thought we’d look around. Then, Emmett caught sight of a small brown bear sniffing around near the dining hall. Fearing the safety of the kids, Emmett went after it, but bumped into a power line in the process. Andi, it set the building on fire! Now, those poor children have no where to eat and the camp is going to have to close for the rest of the summer!” She put her face into her hands and mumbled, “It was an accident; Emmett didn’t mean to destroy their dining hall.” Finally looking up at me, she took both my hands in hers, “Isn’t there something we can do?”
I looked at Rose and then looked at DazzleMe, when she gave me a small nod I turned back to Rose and said, “We’ll see what we can do?”
DazzleMe Cullen contacted the camp director about possibly buying some t-shirts from them. They were super sweet, and would love it if we'd buy the t-shirts. Since they had to close the camp for the summer, they have a bunch lying around.
No Adult mediums left, but the rest in Adult and Kids sizes are available at $20 per shirt, which includes delivery in the US, not sure if they will do international. If you’re interested in getting one, contact Shelby Cox via email at Shelby.Cox@ymcahouston.org or call 936-594-2274.
As an extra special treat, I’m offering up one final fan fic for the day. It’s the sequel to the “Cullen Family Camping Trip” titled “Cullen Family Camping Trip II: Back to the Woods” by LeesaM. In this fic, all the Cullens have 22 silly chapters and 3 outtakes to display their fair share of zany behavior and harmlessly pranking a few of their old classmates. After the first camping trip, Bella and the Cullens were ready to put it behind them and move toward the upcoming wedding, until Charlie's 'thank you' present sends the household back into a panic - and back to the woods at a youth camp. Thankfully, no innocent dining halls were harmed in the creation of this fan fic. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5245433/1/Cullen_Family_Camping_Trip_II_Back_to_the_Woods
Now, I would probably suggest s’mores to go along with this campfire tale, but I think that would be in poor taste, don’t you? So I’ll offer up somethin’ just as tasty, but will cool the fires all the same, I call it a “Vampire's Blood Smoothie”.
1/2 cup lemonade 1 cup crushed ice 2 scoops raspberry sorbet 1/2 cup frozen raspberries 1 cup frozen strawberries
In a blender, process the ingredients until smooth. Serve in a tall glass and garnish with strawberry.
So here’s keeping my fingers crossed that Emmett won’t destroy anything else, by accident or on purpose, and Rosalie will fix my door before next week. I’ll be locked up tight in the Love Shack Laboratory if you need a fix. Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message, or email (email@example.com) if you want to talk shop.
Carol Cross’ Georgia farm will be filled with movie lights, camera and action this weekend, but she may not be there during the shooting, even though film stars Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon may be.
“I’m not gonna be a nuisance,” said Cross, whose husband, Gary, co-owns the farm with his brother, Tommy. “I have no idea where we are going to be or anything like that. We are just along for the ride.”
A crew will be on the Kensington, Ga., farm to shoot part of the movie “Water for Elephants,” which stars Pattinson, made famous by his role as the vampire Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” film series, and Witherspoon, the Nashville native who won a Best Actress Oscar for “Walk the Line.”
Though 20th Century Fox, which is producing the movie, has said only that the film is in production, a casting call for extras said shooting will take place in the Chattanooga area today through Monday.
It is not clear if Pattinson and Witherspoon will actually be at the farm during the shooting or exactly what other locations might be used. Cross said she had not been told specifics about how long the crew will be at the Kensington farm.
Local fans, as well as others around the country, have been communicating online, trying to find the locations in hopes they can catch a glimpse of the stars, especially Pattinson, whose diehard fans are said to be part of “Team Edward.”
Molly Suttle, 18, of Soddy-Daisy, said she heard of the possible visit last week and created a page on Yahoo.com so her friends could share information about the filming here.
“He is famous and he is one of our favorite actors and one of our favorite musicians, so it’s one of those things where we are not plotting or planning to stalk him,” she said. “He’s a movie star and we are so excited that he is gonna be here in Chattanooga of all places.
“I am a fan of ‘Twilight,’ but I also like his other things, and I love his music,” she said.
Walker County sheriff’s deputies will be on the set in Kensington, monitoring traffic flow and the number of people in the area, said Sheriff Steve Wilson. But he doesn’t think there will be any traffic snarls or massive crowds.
“I don’t anticipate closing the road,” he said. “If the traffic does become a problem, we may.”
Cross said the film crew has been doing “cosmetic work” on the interior and exterior of the house located on her farm. She said neither she nor her husband were familiar with Pattinson or Witherspoon’s work prior to being contacted by a film scout about using their house in the film.
“We are simple people and we live very simply,” she said. “This is an exciting thing for us. It’s gonna be a whirlwind and it’s gonna be over.”
UGO has a list of their 50 favorite vampire chicks and every Twilight actress has made the list.
Here’s their write-up of Ashley Greene:
Actress: Ashley Greene
Undead In: The Twilight Saga
As long as you’re going to become an edgy vampire with the uncanny ability to sparkle in the sunlight, you might as well do it with style. Ashley Greene’s spunky coiffed Alice Cullen provides the useful (yet inexplicable) gift of foresight throughout the Twilight Saga, but unfortunately couldn’t tell that Bella was cliff-diving instead of jumping to her death.
Like anyone would be so torn up over Robert Pattinson. But he is dreamy.”
When Kellan Lutz first joined Twitter, his first tweet was the above picture and a note that he was getting sweaty in New Orleans building houses in St. Bernard Parish.
To give a little history, St. Bernard Parish was devastated when Hurricane Katrina blew through the area in August of 2005. A water way named, the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet or MRGO, as we know it, flooded the entire parish. Water was every where and up to roof tops of the homes in the area.
Five years later, people are still trying to return to "Da Parish" where they were born and raised. With a little help of course by Habitat for Humanity and the St. Bernard Project.
Kellan has been a big supporter of the St. Bernard Project while he was in town filming a movie in the spring of this year. Now is your chance to help out his cause and the great people of St. Bernard Parish.

Psst! Looking for somethin’ new? I know somebody, goes by the name, Cullen. Yea, that’s right, Dr. Cullen. He’s got this shack in the woods; he calls it his “Love Shack”. I hear tales that he’s built a fan fiction laboratory there and hired some whacked out Lab Tech named Andi and a few of her sisters to flesh out the good stuff. Now listen real close, when you find this place, don’t go to the front door, make sure to walk around to the blue door in the back. You’ll need the secret knock and a password. This week, knock the beats of “Dueling Banjos” and the password is “Irritable Grizzly”. I hear she’s a little paranoid, and only deals on Fridays. Be Safe!
While the Cullens were helping me setup the lab this week, Emmett appeared to be deep in thought, not his usual bounding, teasing self.
“Emmett, babe? Is something wrong?” I placed a hand on his shoulder and he turned to look at me.
“Why don’t they love me?” he looked as though he would cry, if only he could.
“What on earth are you talking about? Everyone loves you!” he looked in my eyes with his pain clearly visible.
“But they don’t ever show it!” he exclaimed. With a gentle nudge, I pushed him into the nearest chair and sat on his massive lap.
“Who are you talking about, baby?” His thoughts were so broken; I really needed to get him to focus before I’d even have the slightest clue what he was talking about.
“The authors, Andi! They hate me. There are thousands of them writing about Eddie and Bells, and tons of stories with Bells and Jazz. Not to mention the stories with Jazz and Ali, and I even saw one with a three-way of Eddie, Bells, AND Jazz. But where are mine, Andi? WHERE ARE MINE???”
“Oh, Emmy!” I said trying to calm him. “They’re out there. I’ll make you a deal, you go find me some authors to stock my lab with and I’ll give you the entire day on Friday, okay?”
Finally, there was a gleam in his eyes and he smiled so wide, it split his face in two. “Really? Oh Andi, you are the BEST!” then he wrapped his massive arms around me, squeezing out all my air. “Em! Can’t breathe!” I squeaked out.
“Oh sorry!” He jumped out of the chair, setting me on my feet and kissed my cheek. “I’m going to get Rosie to help!” then he was out the door.
“Don’t let her scare them!” I yelled after him. “I need them alive!!” I just shook my head, chuckling to myself, as I set my thoughts on Emmett and hoping beyond hope that a few of the authors he found me would survive.
So, my deals for this week are sparse, but thankfully they’re all complete, no waiting for updates, and they’re stories I know I enjoyed; I hope you will too. The usual offerings in the past have been quite citrusy, and I’ll have those too, but in the case of our favorite big brother, they are hard to find. So I’ll keep things light with versions of Emmett that I adore.
First, I give you “Attention, Wal-Mart Shoppers” by sillybella. This story is one that will have you rolling on the floor, but it’s short and sweet, with only 5 chapters, so you won’t have to suffer long. Edward has decided that Bella needs some protection; the kind you can find in the Pharmacy Department at Wal-Mart. This is the best tormenting Emmett, he has no shame in front of the dazed Wal-Mart employees and poor Edward suffers a great deal all in the name of embarrassment. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3359121/1/Attention_WalMart_Shoppers
Second, I have “Cullen Family Camping Trip” by LeesaM. This is a very wacky, 13 chapter, tale where Charlie insists Bella go camping with the Cullens in order to acclimate herself with the great outdoors. After all, the Cullens are practically revered in town for their family camping trips, so they must know what they're doing, right? Well, maybe, but they want to show Bella a good time anyway and Emmett is insanely funny in this one. Just watch out for the small woodland creatures, he’s a little obsessed with them here. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4747726/1/bCullen_b_bFamily_b_bCamping_b_bTrip_b
Third on the list is “Dirty Dancing with the Devil Herself” by JayJay Hale. This is one is a whopping 40 chapters but completely worth the time. Edward left Bella, forcing his family to stay away from her. Six years later, the Cullens are a mess and Emmett decides to get away from his angst ridden family and let loose. What he finds in the meanest biker bar in Seattle will shock everyone! Emmett has honestly met his match in this one and she’s not even a vampire. Edward won’t know what to do with himself.
This fic has two homes - on FanFiction.net and on Twilighted.net.
Last, I found a very wonderful tale that Emmett will be bouncing up and down for, "One Sweet Love" by zoe roe. Edward and Bella are there but are, at last, only background characters. This is an all human/alternate universe love story about Emmett and Rosalie, told in 20 sweet chapters. Rosalie is a pop singer who really just needs a break, so her wardrobe manager, Alice, takes her to her home in Tennessee. While there, she is introduced to Bella’s firefighter brother, Emmett. Is it getting warm in here? *fans face* Just thinking of Emmett as a firefighter is making me sweat. LOL! http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6024367/1/One_Sweet_Love
If that made you a little warm too, here’s a little somethin’ to cool you down; I call it the “Irritable Grizzly”, just a bit tart and spicy, the way a grizzly’s blood would taste if it were spiked with adrenaline. I don't want to have to say it but I will; please drink responsibly.
½ oz Cinnamon Schnapps 1 oz Raspberry Vodka 6-8 oz Ginger Ale Splash of Rose’s Grenadine for color
Pour everything into a collins glass. Stir gently. Fill with ice and garnish with a cherry.
So until next week, I’ll be locked up tight in the Love Shack Laboratory. I’m really hopin’ for Edward Masen to pop in for a chat or to whisk me away to Boston. Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message, or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to talk shop.
Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Natalie (Talie for short) 28 yrs old, wife of 7 years and mother to three beautiful babies all under the age of 7. My oldest is a Twi hard fan in the making. I live in the peaceful countryside of North Carolina. As a stay at home mom my Twi friends have named me Queen of Google, for the way I can simple google anything and pull up some juicy pics or info about the Cullens and the Twi Saga. My BFF introduced me to Twilight in 09 and I sat up for the next 3 days reading them back to back and now I'm in love. I have at the moment not been to any Twi fun conventions or met any of the stars, but I plan to in the near future.
I am also known as Robluscious on Twitter as well as my own blog.
I can not wait to get to know all the other Shackers and meet new obsessed fans of the sexy Cullen Men!
"Its always been him" Team Edward Always
Have a Sparkly Twilific day. See you on the block to make Dr. Cullen's Love Shack the hottest, blog around!!!!
Hey Everyone just wanted to introduce me. My name is Amy I'm 24 and I'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I'm a student, single and don't have any kids. I have been a fan of the books sense 2008 when a friend of mine became obsessed and said that I had to read the books. I haven't read any of the fan-fictions as of yet so if anyone wants to recemend any I'd be more than willing to give it a try. I have been to 2 twilight events within the last year including meeting Peter just after my birthday (a bday present from my mom) and Kellan in November when he came to West Edmonton Mall (slept over night in the mall with about 50 other people). Anyways nice to meet you all and hope to hear more from people soon!! ~Amy
Hello! Just thought I would take a quick moment and introduce myself. My name is Savannah and I am 23 years old. I reside right outside of Seattle, Washington (Yes, be that jealous that I'm only five hours away from Forks :) ) I've been married for the last year and a half and truly enjoy it. When I'm not reading fan fiction I work full-time as a school age teacher at a daycare center, it's a crazy job but I love it! I'm so excited to work with all you wonderful ladies and know it's going to be a blast! I'm a huge fan fiction addict and am always looking for new stories to read so if you find any lemme know. Well I will end this before you all fall asleep but have a wonderful evening and sparkly dreams! :)
My name is Andi. I'm a 35 year-old mother of two (one 4 yrs and the other is 6 yrs). Currently residing in North Carolina. I'm a student of the universe trying to learn new things everyday.
I'm so happy to be on the Love Shack Team and hope to revive Fan Fic Fridays. Fan Fiction is my crack, I read it consently. I've even been known to transfer it to a format that I can read on my Palm Centro or email to my sister-in-law to upload to an old Palm IIIxe that I gave her. My brother-in-law thinks I'm evil and my husband calls me the fan fic dealer. I probably lived up to that title when I started passing out fanfiction.net story web addresses to the woman sitting next to me during my second viewing of Eclipse. She didn't even know fan fiction existed, so I thought I'd enlighten her. Mwah-ha-ha!
So lean in close little shacksters as I spin a tale about a laboratory I'm building next to the backdoor of the Shack. I know all the Cullens will be popping in now and then to check up on the experiments I'm running on those innocent human authors. Don't worry, I'm feeding them well, but I won't be dealing out any of their test results unless they're fit for consumption.
Be sure to email me (email@example.com) any stories you find especially juicy and I'll be sure to put it in the queue for tests. Otherwise, you can visit the Discussion board on the face book page for the Love Shack to see what other shacksters are reading.
Hi!!! Wanted to just take a few short seconds and introduce myself...
My name is Denise and I am a new blogger for the site. I am from New Orleans, LA where I am a stay at home mom of four kids. I've been married for 12yrs and have been obsessed with the "Books" since 2009 when my sister made the mistake of taking me to see Twilight!! LOL
Most of you guys know me as LaughingTwiGirl, where I can be found on Twitter and my own blog. I have been to Vampire Baseball, a Twilight Convention, and Eclipse Premiere via Stick Me!
I can not wait to start blogging with Lisa and the rest of the ladies and sharing my obsession of the Cullen Men!!! Team Edward Baby!!!
Thanks again for your time and come back and see what we can do to make Dr. Cullen's Love Shack the Best Blog on the Block!!!
I'm one of the 'newborns'! This is like an awesome dream for me...blogging about what I love, the Cullen Family! I'm from Texas, and a big Civil War buff, so I'm partial to Team Jasper...but my hair is definitely Team Alice! Please send me your thoughts on Jasper, his background ( I really think that Eclipse didn't do justice to Jasper's backstory) and we can talk! I look forward to hearing from everyone! Susan
Dr. Cullen's Love Shack is in need of a 4th Blogger. I always like even numbers anyway! In a week I am going back to work full time which means I won't be here to post updates all day like I have been.
This is sort of like a job application, except no you don't get paid, but I'll probably send you a tshirt after I have a paycheck again (yeah I owe Lili and Dee SEVERAL tshirts when I have money again)
I have only a few requirements, we need someone:
- with good computer skills that can work the Blogger interface, the Facebook Fan Page and Twitter.
- MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL you must be TEAM CULLEN. This is a dog free blog. No wolf pack posts. EVER.
- Available to blog most everyday, no biggie if you skip a day or 2.. we all have real lives and not all day of course, but an hour or 2 a day for news would rock my world.
- and you MUST be over 18. Sorry guys, I don't want any mean texts from angry parents.
That's really it. I don't care what country you are in or which Cullen makes your girlie bits tingle! If you share our vision, we need a little help!!! We are growing SO fast and I'd really love it if we could be one of the BEST blogs when Breaking Dawn comes out!!
If you'd like to blog with us please send me (Lisa) an email CullenLoveShack@yahoo.com and tell me why you share our vision and want to blog with us.
Throws some sparkle to the wind and hopes somebody can help!
