::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday

Hey, got big plans for the weekend yet? How were you going to celebrate Bella and Renesmee’s birthdays? Well, if you were still undecided about your plans, just go visit Lab Tech Andi. She’s had the authors put together a wonderful assortment of tales to keep you busy all weekend, so when you get to the blue door behind the shack, knock the beat of the traditional “Happy Birthday” song and the password is: “Distraction”. Be Safe!


It was going to be a big weekend; there was just no way of getting around that, so we were getting prepared. It was Renesmee’s and Bella’s birthdays and I had the authors busy putting together stories especially for the occasion. Since neither of them really needed anything and Bella always put up such a fuss if you bought her anything, I figured a selection of stories was the perfect gift. The authors loved the idea and the lab was a very pleasant place to hang out, until Bella came rushing through the door and into my supply closet.

Hesitantly, I knocked on the door, “Bella? Is everything okay?”

“No Andi, it’s not,” she whispered from the other side of the door. “I’m hiding from the evil pixie that is trying to make my existence a living hell.”

“You know she’ll find you in there, right?” I asked stating the obvious. “So why don’t you come out here and tell me what’s going on.”

Slowly she emerged from the closet and sat in a chair facing the giant aquarium that covered one wall. “All I asked was that we keep the whole thing small, just family and friends, but I go to put gas in the Volvo and what do I see? A flyer detailing activities for the whole weekend for the entire city of Forks just to celebrate my birthday!”

I flipped on my computer and navigated to the Forks, WA website. Outlined as clear as day, under the events section were breakfasts, scavenger hunts, tours of the high school, and there was even a ball. “Um, Bella?” I hedged, “This is a lot of stuff, are you sure Alice arranged all this?” I knew Alice could go a little overboard, but I wasn’t so sure about this.

“Who else would have gone to all this trouble?” she dead-panned as she blankly stared at the fish.

That’s when I decided to Google it and saw all the movie releases and other people throwing their own parties. This was way beyond Alice now. “Bella, honey? I don’t think you’re expected to show-up to any of these events, there’s just too many of them.” I told her, trying to keep my voice soothing.

“What do you mean?” swiftly she moved to stand behind me so she could read the screen. “Holy Crow!” she gasped in my ear.

Then, once again the lab door fluttered open and Edward rushed to her side in an instant, “Don’t worry about any of these things, Love. All these people are just looking for a reason to celebrate; Alice had nothing to do with it. Come, we’ll hide out in the cottage all weekend and wait for all the madness to blow-over.” He told her as he wrapped his arms around her. Then looking down to me, “Do you think the authors are up to the task of distracting the masses with their stories?”

I smiled back at him, “Edward, I think they’d be delighted to.” And then I stood, giving Bella a quick hug, “Happy Birthday, Bella. I hope you’re granted the peace you asked for.”

“Thanks, Andi” she hugged me back and then they were out the door.


To entice and distract you from Bella's birthday we thought we'd focus on Renesmee's, so my deals this week are full of children of all types. However, that doesn't mean that these tales aren't of the adult variety.

First up is “Best of Both Worlds” by StarlightSuccubus. This is a saucy little one chapter fic where Edward reflects and talks to Bella about his thoughts about being a father. Bella has other revelations of her own.

Next up is “You Don't Know Anything” by TwiDi. In this in-progress tale, 21 chapters so far, Bella’s mother and step-father are killed by a drunk driver, leaving her with a newborn brother. A strained relationship with her father drives Bella to claim that her baby brother is her own child, that way Charlie won’t force her to give up the last bit of her mother she has left. Suddenly finding herself in Forks with a child, how will she cope with unsaid secrets and the advances of a green-eyed jerk all while unknown dangers are lurking behind every corner. The unique thing about this story is the way the author makes characters like James, Tanya, and Victoria, who are usually portrayed as villains, into remarkable friends and supportive people for Bella in her time of need.

Third, I’ve got “The Rage” by Kismetian. This completed tale of 14 chapters tells the story of how Bella Swan rescues a small green eyed copper haired baby boy from a car stranded in a flooded creek. In turn, she is then rescued by the apparent father, a very angry and untrusting Edward Cullen. Although with his temperament, Bella’s not so sure she trust him to love and care for his own child and what about the boy’s mother. This story is a rollercoaster and Bella’s wit is not to be missed.

Lastly, I have “Bella Swan: Kidnapper” by Kambria Rain. This fun, completed fic shares the story of how Bella Swan, mother of one, meets Edward Cullen, father of two, by unintentionally kidnapping his children. The description of the neighbors in this story is hilarious and the Bella that you see is the cool mom that every child wished they had or had known. It's 23 chapters you will laugh yourself sick reading.

Now, to go along with these tales, I’m going recommend something that even Renesmee could drink and Bella would have found simple enjoyment in.

A Sherbet Float.

2 scoops of lime sherbet
Fill with lemon-lime soda

Mixing instructions
Place sherbet in a tall glass and then fill glass with soda. Enjoy!

Until next week, I’ll be hanging out in the lab trying to keep the party people at bay. Now, blow out your candles and make a wish. Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message, or email ( if you want to talk shop.

The deal has been made. ;)

Twitter was a buzz this morning as peeps returned and returned and returned some very important news finally regarding Eclipse and a DVD release date! 

Mark your calendar's ladies and gentleman, Eclipse will hit the shelves at midnight on December 4, 2010! 

Above, are the front covers of the DVD and so I've read, it looks like there is no more than two to chose from, unlike New Moon where you had a tough decision. (I'm guilty, I own three copies of New Moon, LOL)

According to VideoETA, there will be a Blu-Ray copy, a regular copy, and a two disc set. The two disc set will contain the usual, deleted and extended scenes, behind the scenes look at how it was made, photo gallery, music videos and a Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Stephenie Meyer commentary. 

Let's all hope for that commentary!! 

Anyhoo... I'm sure you can pre order as usual at and other retailers as the time comes. Also, as soon as retailers start announcing midnight release parties, we will let you know!

::Team Breaking Dawn:: SPOILER ALERT- What's Being Filmed Where & When

A source at the Louisiana Film Commission has revealed which scene from the anticipated final installment of the Twilight movie franchise will be filming very near to the Baton Rouge area.

Recently, Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the highly lucrative film series The Twilight Saga, announced that filming for the franchise's final chapter, Breaking Dawn, will partially take place in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A source within the Louisiana Film Commission has disclosed to me that members of the Breaking Dawn production crew have already scouted out the location they are planning to use for the film; which the studio is releasing in two parts.

The scene will be the final confrontation between the Cullen clan, who are joined by the Quileute wolf pack and their friends, and the Volturi. The scene, most of which is taken directly from the novel, has been extended to include several physical fights. It is expected that many Twilight fans will be flocking to Louisiana when the studio begins filming in the area; which is why the exact area the production team has decided on is being kept tightly under wrap.

I feel a roadtrip coming on!!!
