::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday

The human brain is a miraculous organ, it processes so much information all at once and when you digest the written word, it makes your body react without a single stimulus. Words can give you goose bumps without the whisper of a breeze, make your pulse quicken at the mere thought of a kiss, and make you exhausted when you haven’t moved any inch. However, the fandom inspires more than just the written word and although I would never deprive you of your literary addiction, this week you’ll have to open your eyes and take in other beautiful pieces of the fandom. So, purchase you ticket in advance then head to the blue door behind the shack, knock the funky rhythm of “Video Killed the Radio Star” and the password is “Roll ‘em”. Be Safe!


How in the hell does she do this every week? I thought to myself as I silently tried to sift through the files before me. There were like a zillion files on here; over a 178,000 on just one site alone. How does she ever find anything?

I glanced over to where Rosalie was braiding Andi’s hair into an insanely intricate pattern; Rose looked over to me and smiled. I was so going to owe her tonight and she knew it. I’m sure you’re just a little confused, so let me explain.

Earlier in the week, Rose, Alice, and I were out hunting when Alice started going on and on about some stories she’d found that she was going to mention to Andi. I just smiled and nodded in the appropriate places.

Then when we got back to the house, Bella ran up to Alice and started jabbering on about one of our previous authors getting published. Eventually, that conversation drifted to a different room and I tuned it out.

After a while, all those things started to eat away at me just a little; Alice and Bella were both finding authors for the lab these days, and sure Andi had given me some Emmett days, but she’d never actually let me recommend anything. Probably because I’d recommend something like “The Cullen’s go to Wal-Mart”; she probably wasn’t far off, Wal-Mart is a freakin’ hilarious place to be.

So, anyway, I talked to Rose, who is the master of diversion, and explained that I wanted to hijack Andi’s post for Friday. She just rolled her eyes at me, but agreed to help. Ultimately, that’s how I found myself now looking at over a hundred billion words trying to figure out which ones to recommend. Rose knows I’m not much of a reader, which is probably why she gave me the look, suspecting I’d lost my mind for wanting such a thing, but damn it, I wanted my turn.

My fingers moved swiftly and silently over the keys, but then I heard her; knowing I’d been caught.

“Emmett, I know what you’re doing.” Andi said all the way from the other side of the room.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about, I’m not doing anything.” I answered in a cool tone.

“You’ve been staring at my computer the entire time Rose has been doing my hair. If you not looking for stories, what else would you be looking for, porn?” then she laughed at her little joke.

I just scowled in her direction. “No.”

“Well, I suspect you’re over thinking it. Just like all of you inspire stories, occasionally those stories inspire other things, like pictures, songs, or videos.” She explained.

“Videos? Really?” I was excited now, I understood videos.

“Sure, just look on YouTube and see what peaks your interest.” Then she closed her eyes while Rose continued braiding.

“Sweet!” I typed in the web address and pressed enter.


Now this was truly a scavenger hunt, but I found some excellent fics with videos and since I can’t write a summary like Andi can, I’m going to let the video do it for me. I hope you like and I know I’ve beat Bella and Alice, just by sheer number this time. Ha! Ha! Ha!

And since this was a drink created just for me, I think everyone should have an “Irritable Grizzly”

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, if you're part of the reading challenge, be sure to log the chapters you've reviewed for the Million Word Reading Challenge (Andi's been a little busy lately, but she'll get caught up soon.), Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message me on Facebook, or email ( if you want to talk shop.

The deal has been made. ;)
