::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday

OMG! Can someone tell me what year it is?? I just know the world had ended and I’ve been fighting my way back from hell ever since!! What a week! Thankfully, it’s a holiday weekend and I’m so looking forward to sitting back with a big drink and a smartphone full of fics. If you want to join me, race to the blue door at the back of the shack, knock the techno beat of Daft Punk's "Derezzed" and the pass phrase is “Start your engines!”. Be Safe!


The week has been exhausting! The lab has had so much going on and still so much left to do that by the time I fell into bed, I began dreaming almost as soon as I closed my eyes. The dreams were so strange and real.

At first, I heard music, it played all around me and it was sweet. The voices that made up my dream song were smooth and lilting. Pushing and pulling me, in different directions and then lifting me. Then suddenly I was flying. I felt the cold on my skin, the breeze in my hair. I began to shiver and pulled my blankets tighter.

Eventually, I settled and rested my weary body on a cloud. The soft wispy mist surrounding me; embracing me, pulling me deeper into sleep. The scent of the air carried that of lilacs, lavender, apple, and vanilla. I smiled and breathed in deeply, taking in the scent, filling my body with its presence and giving into the weight I felt bearing down on me.

The weight holding me down began to lift and I was floating again. Flying swiftly towards somewhere unknown and landing on earth so soft, warm, and comfortable that I relaxed once again into its embrace and ever so slowly my dream faded into darkness.

The light was strange when I opened my eyes and everything was the wrong color. My brain wasn’t quite functioning, but while I continued to blink, taking in my surroundings. This was not my room, or at least not the room I fell asleep in. Where was I? Before the panic could completely take over, I felt the bed dip beside me and a hand on my shoulder bringing with it an immediate calm; I didn’t need to turn to know it was Jasper.

Alice appeared in front of me, “I’m so glad you’re finally awake!” she said bouncing on her toes. “Now get up and get dressed. I want to get to the track!”

“Whoa, slow down there pixie woman!” I told her as I sat up and look at the both of them. “I know I didn’t fall asleep in a hotel room, so where are we?”

“We are in Tokyo, my dear Andi, now get dressed!”

“Excuse me?” I continued to blink at her. “Did you say Tokyo? Please tell me that’s some random tiny town in the continental United States!”

“Nope, Japan. Now if you don’t dress yourself, I’m going to have to dress you myself. They’re all getting track time without me!!” she exclaimed.

“Ok, ok, not like I packed. What do I have to wear?”

“Here put this on,” she said as tossed me some clothes and left the room with Jasper. I shook my head and got out of bed to get ready for whatever awaited me.

Emerging from the bedroom, I was quickly pulled to a car and we were on our way to… “Alice, where are we going?”

“There’s a race track that’s not far from here and every once in a while we have our own little race. Most of the time it’s just us, but occasionally a random nomad will join us. That’s when Rose is really in her element! She loves to show off her tuning skills. Though, today we’re going against Jacob’s pack.” She smiled slyly.

I laughed knowing Jacob would quickly accept that kind of challenge. “So are you racing?” I asked her.

“Of course!” she said as if it were obvious.

As we continued on our trip to the race track, I wondered who else would be racing and who would win. “Hey Alice, can’t you already see who’s going to win?”

“Nope, because the wolves are here and too many decisions haven’t been made yet.”

Hmmm… Then this should be interesting…


With racing in mind and it also being the weekend for the Indy 500, all my dealings came to me fast. They have fast cars, fast drivers, and a few have fast relationships. I hope you enjoy!

First in line, I have a speedy tale called “Up to Speed” by ericastwilight. Over-confident, playboy, race car driver, Edward Cullen, is just not having the best luck. Since wrecking yet another car, most of his sponsors are dropping him which is now leaving him and his team short on funds. At this point they need a miracle in order to keep Edward behind the wheel, and that’s when their prayers are answered. Bella Swan is one of the most brilliant engineers on the planet and she’s decided Edward Cullen is going to be her next project. Will she succeed in making him the best and help him win the Sprint Cup?

Next in line, I found “Feel Good Drag” by JasperSAYSrelax128. Bella lived in Phoenix with her mom and step-dad and unknown to them she’s one of the top street racers in Arizona. But when a recent race ends up in a police chase, Renee decides to send her to live with Charlie in Forks, WA, thinking that it will get her away from the racing lifestyle. What she doesn’t know is that is that there’s an underground racing site that only allows boys to race? Will Bella be able to resist being an active participant? How do you think she’ll get around their rules?

Third in line, I found something with a little wear and tear, but still pretty fast called “Chasing Victory” by mpg. Edward and Bella were high school sweethearts, but he still wasn’t sure he was ready for commitment. Until he overheard Bella talking in her sleep about marriage, he freaked out and broke up with her. Both have been trying to move on ever since. Then Edward’s career as a race-car driver starts to go downhill and he just has to get away for a while and Carlisle lets him borrow his place in London. Imagine his surprise when on his flight to London, he’s seated by none other than Bella Swan.

And Finally, I just couldn’t resist this Indy car tale called “This Year's Girl” by EtrnlPsyche. In an effort to find Edward Masen, famous Indy car driver, a date for a banquet and a little publicity, Jasper Whitlock creates a contest for some lucky fan to win a one night date with Edward. Alice is a big fan of racing and when she sees the ads for the contest, she just knows this is the perfect way to distract her friend Bella from her current destructive relationship with a guy named James. By some miracle she wins, but what should have only been one night, turns into something infinitely more.

And since racing really needs more of them, I suggest a little drink called a “Woman Driver”:

2 oz. Liqueur, melon (Midori)
1 oz. Schnapps, peach
1 oz. Vodka
1 splash Cranberry Juice
3 oz. Orange Juice

Mixing Instructions
Fill glass with ice. Add O.J., schnapps, and vodka. Tilt glass to side and slowly pour Midori down side of glass so that it sinks to the bottom. Splash with cranberry juice.

While I recover from my week in hell, I hope you all have a great weekend and until next week, Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message me on Facebook, or email ( if you want to talk shop.

The deal has been made. ;)
