::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday

I had a dream last night and all of you were in it. We were back in school, and there was supposed to be a test. I was nervous, because I was afraid I didn’t know any of the answers, but then when I saw the first question, I smiled. All the questions were about my favorite fics so I breezed right through. After the test was over, I stepped into the hall and was caught off guard by the sight of Rob. Then, I noticed he wasn’t wearing a shirt and just before my eyes glanced down to his hips I woke up. Now, I know you hate being awakened during such a good dream, so Lab Tech Andi has found some drool-worthy geeks to give you all something good to see when you close your eyes. Just head to the blue door at the back of the shack, knock the geeky beats of "Grade 9" by Barenaked Ladies and give the password “Nerdward”. Be Safe!


After spending so much time traveling, it was nice to finally be back in the lab. Almost relaxing to come back to the humdrum of everyday activities. Of course, now that we had returned, we had a lot of catching up to do.

Bella and Edward had class work to catch up on and thankfully they were able to complete most of their assignments online; it was one of the few benefits of online universities. However, even with the aid of perfect recall, it only made it easier to do the work, and this was Bella’s first time through. So, while she put together a paper about ‘Romanticism in the New Testament of the Bible’, Edward was using his time to teach Renesmee geometry.

“Okay, Nessie, here’s the next problem: Using only elementary geometry, determine angle x. Provide a step-by-step proof.

“You may use only elementary geometry, such as the fact that the angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees and the basic congruent triangle rules (side-angle-side, etc.). You may not use trigonometry, such as sines and cosines, the law of sines, the law of cosines, etc.”

Renesmee stared at the diagram for only a couple minutes then turned to her father and proudly announced, “It’s 20, Daddy!”

Bella and I glanced at each other and giggled. Edward shot a brief glare at us and then turned back to his daughter. “How did you come to that result? Part of the instructions stated you need to prove your work.” Renesmee frowned.

“But I was right, wasn’t I?” she asked.

“That’s not the point, Sweetheart; you need to complete all the steps to solve the problem so that people don’t doubt your answer.”

However, instead of picking up a pencil and paper, she placed her tiny hand on his cheek and stared into his face. They sat as still as stone for several minutes and I whispered under my breath, “Damn, I so wish I could read minds right now.”

“So, do I,” Bella replied as we watched a slight grin wash across Edward’s face.

“Nessie, if it’s not on paper, no one else can see your work,” I heard Edward explain to her.

“If someone really wanted to see my work, I’ll just show them like I showed you. Besides, Daddy my method helps to save the environment, don’t you want to be green?” she responded quite satisfied with herself.

Bella and I burst into fit of laughter while Edward just rolled his eyes. “Oh, believe me sweetheart, I’ve been green for a very long time. Now, let’s just move on to the next problem, shall we?”


Oh how I’ve missed our nerdward, he really is so entertaining. So this week, I’m bringing him back with all my deals. Enjoy!

My first amazing little tale is everything we need right after our Irish holiday, titled “Green” by Bratty-Vamp. Bella Swan is rich, beautiful, and popular. Her father is a very successful plastic surgeon which affords her the luxury of living in a beautiful house that other people take care of. One of those, so-called, caretakers just happens to be none other than Edward Cullen, aka the lawn boy. As for Edward, he’s managed to stay pretty invisible his whole life; just saving for college to get out of this small town. However, when Bella nearly drowns in her own pool and Edward rushes in to save her, both of their bizarre worlds are about to be turned on their sides. This story could be defined as a slightly reverse twilight, but the characters are wonderfully developed and unique enough to make you love these versions just as much as the original.

My next geekward was hiding in a kissing booth, in a one-shot tale called “Twenty Tickets” by JK5959. Edward thinks he’s a geek that no girl in their right mind would want to be with, but in all honesty, there’s only one girl he’d want to be with anyway, Bella. Unfortunately, the only time he ever really spends time with her is in Biology class. So, when Edward is told that, he’ll be helping his tennis team raise money for new uniforms by participating in a kissing booth during the school carnival, he’s just positive that this will be one lonely night. Edward might be very surprised by who appears during his shift. This is an adorable story and so well thought out. I know you’ll love it too.

My third little nerdward was discovered in a more grow-up tale called “Discovering You, Discovering Me” by JSFazz. In high school, Edward Cullen was branded a geek and bullied every single day. Bella Swan honestly didn’t fare much better with her awkwardness and never quite fitting in to any group. However, they were too shy to really know each other well back then, so when they bump into each other years later and Bella is in need of a job, Edward hires her on to work in the pharmacy with him. Will they be able to let go of their insecurities and discover their hidden potential?

Now, because you’ve just gotten over St. Patty’s day, who says it has to end, you have all weekend, so grab a fic and a Guinness.

Stay safe and until next week. If you're part of my challenge, be sure to log the chapters you've reviewed for the Million Word Reading Challenge (I've released part of the fic I was challenged to write, you can find it under the title "In Nature"), Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message me on Facebook, or email ( if you want to talk shop.

The deal has been made. ;)
