~~~Osa Bella Intermission~~~

Old fashioned, elegant red theater stage drapes

Hello ladies, and if you're out there lurking, gents. Myg here, bringing you this dramatic pause in your regularly scheduled Osa Bella update.

Feel free to take this time to go catch up on other things, you know, laundry, re-organizing your shoes, calling your second cousin to wish her good luck on her divorce. Whatever it is you might have otherwise neglected in order to read Chapter 33, I encourage you to go on and do that.

I had to make an executive decision this week whether to kill you all with some fairly evil cliffies or to give you one long-ass chunk of story to finish you off. Yes, I said finish you off. And I meant it.

This is a piece of art called "Cliff Ogres." I'm the one on the right.

I decided to go with the latter course of action because, really, I would fucking hate to be left on the cliff of the next two chapters, personally. There's some fair warning for you. I didn't write this serially, and I don't think it necessarily reads best that way. I feel like to give you all the best reading experience, I need to hand you the last three chapters at once. So that's what I'm going to do. But, I won't have all 15k+/- words of it ready for you until next Saturday. I am sorry for that, but I do think you'll understand my reasoning when you read it.

In other news, Osa Bella and I were nominated for our very first ever fic awards! Am I a douche for bringing that up? I don't know what the proper etiquette is on something like this. We're up for "best all around story" and "best author" rising star awards for the Hidden Star Awards. These awards are for stories who haven't won any or many awards. I'm totally flattered to have been nominated.

Anyway, I can't fucking believe it's almost over, you guys. When it's all said and done, I will have so much to say to you about how incredible writing this story and sharing it with you has been. I am over the moon that I can give a bunch of you real hugs and ass slaps when we all get to Forks.

I've got to stop typing this now, because I've got three fucking chapters to wrestle into shape for my small army of betas (without whom, Osa Bella would be hardly a shadow, a whimper of what she is by the time you read her).

Love and kisses until next Saturday,


  1. Oooo, ooo, OOOO! I'm FIRST! Hells yeah!

    Ok MYG, just to tell you how much I LOVE this story...I came home from an effin' WINE festival to read Osa Bella tonight. Now, that is not a guilt trip by any means~ just letting you know how much Osa Bella has me totally! I love that you are waiting to give us a complete story with last three chapters! I can't handle any more cliffies! I am so excited AND depressed for the end- I wish it could go on forever! (sorry Mr. MYG)

    Can you tell us:
    1. How we can get a bound signed copy of OSA BELLA? (how much? seriously)
    2. Where do I need to go to vote for this most awesome story and author???!!

  2. Oh hey doll, thank you and so sorry for the disappointment! You can click that link to the Hidden Star awards in the post, and then go under "voting" and scroll down and look for the round two, teeny tiny link that says "vote here." hahaha. It's not the easiest link to find, in other words.

    I can't legally sell copies of the printed, bound OB. Maybe if I sell some for charity? We'll have to look into that.

    I am going to give one to a randomly selected Team Osa Bella member from Fandom Gives Back. I can't remember if you are on our list!

    Thanks for the love, as always.


  3. Oh Myg, I am half distraught with longing for another chapter, and half so freaking excited for next Saturday! I too am suuuuper sad that Osa Bella will be coming to a close. But it has been a great run! Maybe we will see more fic from you on the future?lol. By the way, giant congrats to you for your nomination!

  4. Wow, I didn't realize it was coming to a close right now. I just caught up with everyone this week and read all of the chapters all at once. Although I was looking forward to see if Edward would follow through with... well... what happened in the last chapter, I'm happy to wait for the last three chapters all at once! Thanks for the "warning"!

  5. Voted!! Funny, I actually forgot for a moment that Osa Bella is fan fiction- legal issues being what they are. Your characters go so beyond Twilight. Oh, and no worries. The wine festival continues tomorrow too. Cheers. *wink*

  6. Voted! And congrats on the honor of being nominated! That's awesome, Myg! So proud of you, and proud to have been here from the beginning! GO TEAM OSA BELLA!

    As for finishing up the story, take your time. Like I've said before, I will wait patiently (for the most part) for however long it takes for you to put out an installment that you deem perfect. We know by now that you wouldn't have it any other way. So you go ahead and drag us along for a while. We don't mind :)

  7. congrats on the nomination Myg, you definitely deserve it! Osa Bella is a fantabulous story!!

    And while I may be disappointed to not get an update today, my sanity does appreciate the break from the cliffie! Looking forward to seeing how it all plays out, even though I don't want it to end!

    I know this story resulted from some sad events in your life, and I hope it has been a good and healing process for you. I really hope you continue to write, and I'm selfish enough to hope you write more fanfic! You are so talented that I just want more! xo

  8. oh my gosh i'm so excited for next saturday! I leave for FOOOOORKS and we get an epic update! I hope it's posted before i start leg 1 of the drive :). or, i guess i can steal internet from some rest-stop so i can upload it onto my I-pod to read at my campsite. either way will do. congrats on being nominated and congrats on reaching your goal of finishing before forks.


  9. Can't wait to read it, and I voted. Osa Bella is fan-freaking-tastic, and deserves all the awards!!

    Also, thanks for not making it a cliffie. Good choice.

  10. Thanks everybodyaw3esw (aaannddd, that was my kid there, saying hey).

    Yeah, I can't stomach anymore cliffies either, and I don't know that at this point they'll add to the overall experience of the story.

    @Smitten, thanks for the kind words. This story has helped me deal with my sister's death in ways I never would have imagined. It started as pure escape, but became a lot more than that. Writing is good for the soul, mine at least.

    And speaking of my sister, I was with my 8 year old niece yesterday (my sister's daughter) and she informed me that she's going to be Bella for Halloween. She's never seen Twilight ("Just the previews") she said. And she insists that my boys accompany her as vampires. I cannot tell you how freaking tickled I was by that.


  11. Congrats, Myg. Both on the nomination and almost finishing the story. It's been a hell of a lot of fun to read.

    I can't wait to read three whole chapters together. It will be worth the wait. I have no doubt!

    Have fun wrapping it up!

  12. Congrats on the nomination, my vote is in for you! You deserve to win!
    Looking forward and also dreading the last chapters.

  13. yay on you nomination! you HAVE to win. period.

    and i can't believe you are going to finish this story either... you better get right back to writing again!! right after we make mini toddler-sized Edward outfits for the Doot and Bing. Serious as the Volturi.

    veriword = lamicle [i believe this is some hybrid of "lamb" and "vampsicle" but my brain is too filled with fluff to make anything more out of it]

  14. Congrats Myg! Gonna go vote for ya. Ok, one more week, I think I can wait.... Maybe not, but I'll make do. Maybe I'll go back to the beginning and read it all over again, cause Osa Bella is that awesome.

    Too cute that you niece is going to be Bella for Halloween. Sounds like she's a determined young lady. LOL! Smart girl!

  15. You rotten stinking tease. Ruined my weekend. Well if you are going to make us wait, I will just go read from the beginning. So there.

  16. Mrs. Edward Cullen to youSeptember 19, 2010 at 5:41 PM

    Myg honey.. it doesn't have to be the end. You could just write a chapter a week for the rest of my.. I mean your life and all would be as it should in this world. I must say that I have discovered more patience in myself than I had ever thought possible.. calmly (and by calmly I mean fist pounding the keyboard in frustration) awaiting each chapter of your fucktacular story!! I guess if it has to be over I shall take this reality in the most dignified manner (by dignified I mean sobbing uncontrollably while clutching my laptop to my chest while my husband calls our local behavioral interventionist.. again). I love you Myg.. almost as much as I love this blog. Thank you..... thank you.

  17. It's going to be a really, really good Next Saturday.

    Can't wait, Myg! Thanks for doing this so thoughtfully !

  18. Congratulations on your well deserved nomination Myg! My vote is in for you....whatever the outcome you're a winner in my eyes.

    I can be impatient at times but Osa Bella is a story worth waiting for. Now that I know the end is nigh I WILL wait patiently for the triple instalment and most likely cry into my pillow when it is all over.

    Thanks for letting us share this incredibly amazing and emotional journey with you. xoxo

  19. I read this whole story in roughly 5 hours! IM IN LOVE! IM DYING FOR THE UPDATE! OMGGGGGGGG
