::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday

Oh, how everybody loves their drama! Between government drama, neighbor drama, and movie release drama, Lab Tech Andi just wants to put all the drama back where it belongs, back in her happy place. To accomplish this she’s bringing in her favorite Tech Team with their thick rimmed glasses and love of comic book characters. So, head to the blue door at the back of the shack, knock the funky beat of “Geek in the Pink” by Jason Mraz and the password is “Reboot”. Be Safe!
“This DAMN COMPUTER!!!” I yelled as I banged my fists on the keyboard. This was the fifth time, it had frozen on me in the last hour and I was reaching my limit. I picked up the keyboard to throw it across the lab, but just as it left my hand, Alice materialized right in front of me and caught it. While Jasper flashed behind me, placing his hand on my shoulder and my body slumped down into the chair.

“Andi, you’re going to break it if you keep this up.” Alice said as she put the keyboard back on my desk.

“What difference would it make?” I leaned forward putting my face in my hands. “It’s constantly freezing, there’s a delay when I type, it won’t read anything off my flash drive, and the internet keeps dropping. I’m losing my mind.”

“No you’re not, you just need a break.” Soothed the deep baritone voice and I raised my head to see Emmett leaning down in front of me.

I made a move to stand and mumbled, “I need geekier friends, Emmett.”

“What am I? Chopped liver?” Jasper said with mock irritation. “I can fix this hunk o’ junk and it’ll be better than anything the ‘Geek Squad’ could do.” And I laughed even though I knew Jasper was perfectly capable.

“Ok, tech Jasper, do your worst.” and I turned to hug him. “Thanks.”

“Now, it’s time for you to leave!” Alice said grabbing my hand and pushing me toward Emmett. “Take her away; Rose is waiting!!”

“Waiting for what? Where am I going?” I looked between the three of them when Emmett snatched me up and threw me over his shoulder.

“It’s a surprise.” Then he laughed the most devious laugh I’d ever heard from him and watched the shack get smaller and smaller as we raced away.

Still without a clue as to where we headed, I sat in the back seat watching the scenery blur passed; my mind back in my geekless lab. ‘Perhaps we could kidnap one of those’ I thought and giggled to myself. So all my dealings this week contain characters of the super sexy geeky variety, because the brain has to be the sexiest organ of all, right?

First, I’m offering up an amazing little tale called “Animate Me” by abstract way. In this is sexy story, Edward is a professional animator for Animation Nation and the one thing that he’s absolutely certain about is that he’s an incredible artist. However, Edward has one little issue, he’s a tad socially inept and the girl he worships is cartoon exec for Animation Nation, Bella Swan. He’s loved her from afar for a while and the only way he’s been able to get close to her is to draw her every night in his self-published comic book. So when he steps in to help a friend by working at a computer store and the object of his obsession walks through the door looking for a “thingy”, will they find out they have more in common than just working for the same company?

Next, I found a tale of two geeks in this adorably funny story titled “Geek Love” by SassenachWench. Edward and Bella are web geeks working for the same marketing company. Their relationship is fun and easy and because they work together Edward figures there’s no way to claim her. Until he can’t take the jealousy anymore and he begins the fight of his life to win over the girl he can’t have.

Next is a very lemony fluffy tale titled “Computer Repair” by Jayeliwood. Edward is a major teenage geek and Bella-well, she isn't. Although, when Edward overhears that she has computer troubles he offers to lend her a helping hand. What happens after he fixes her computer is not something he would have ever expected and it’s turned his world on its side.

Next, I’ve got a very cute and nerdy one-shot called “IF BELLA YES” by mothlights. The year is 1977, and aspiring programmer, Edward Cullen walks into a shop called Vinyl Frontier to attempt to check out his sister’s new boyfriend, only to find that the woman in the record shop is his seventh grade crush – the impulsive and incomparable Bella Swan.

And then I found smutty little one-shot titled “Geek Squad to the Rescue” by 4theluvofMary. Bella is an author of romance novels, while her real life is pretty much lacking in that department. There’s no art imitating life here until her computer crashes. Her track record with the Geek Squad has never been the greatest, but without any other options she grudgingly she calls them up for assistance. To her surprise, a hottie with glasses arrives at her door, willing and able to help her out with ALL of her problems.

And last, but certainly not least, I found this amazingly adorable tale called “Sittin' On The Shelf” by cutie sstb. Despite the fact that she entirely over qualified, Bella has been working at Emmett's comic shop for the past 3 years. Spending her days trying to get Edward's attention and yet, Edward is oblivious to the fact that she fancies him. Will our Ednerd realize she adores him or remain in the dark? Alice has a plan…

To go along with these fics I would usually recommend something of the adult variety, but this time I think I’m going to suggest something befitting these geeky tales and that would be Starbucks. Here’s a copy cat recipe for their “Caramel Macchiato” in the event you want to make something at home.

2 tablespoons Starbucks' Vanilla Syrup
1/2 cup fresh brewed espresso
8 ounces steamed milk
3 to 4 tablespoons Starbucks' Caramel Sauce

Add vanilla syrup to 16oz glass.
Add steamed milk and caramel sauce and stir well.

The deal has been made. ;)
