We haven't done any fanfic rec's in a while so I think it's high time we slip on our Teflon panties and dive head first into the smut pit. Who wants to join me?
Died and Gone to Heaven by DoYouTrustMe
Accidents happen. Sometimes you die and meet God. Sometimes you live and meet SexGod. B&E.
I was literally crying I was laughing so hard while reading this. Tears. Streaming down my face. It's a short story that's complete so you really have no excuses not to read this. She also writes Blame it on Rio, which has been on my To Be Read List for a while. I hear good things about it.
In Transit by profmom72 and Lillybellis
Riding the same bus every day, Edward and Bella get off to a bumpy start. She thinks he's stuck-up; he thinks she's shallow. Sometimes what seems like the wrong thing turns out to be exactly what you were waiting for. A FGB novella for mujisan.
This is a rec for Jenny Jerkface. I know she lurves riding public transportation. I bet she'd feel less stabby if Edward Cullen rode with her. This story is just sweet and adorable. It's another short story, but the characters have amazing depth. It's plot-centric and not lemon heavy, but I think Latchkey Wife should read it anyway.
Summer of Salt, you can't even speak to me anymore.
We Were Here by lola-pops
Upon waking, there's a brief, blissful period in which you don't yet recall the sins of the night before, but eventually, you have to open your eyes. I'm Bella Swan, seventeen years old, cheerleader. This morning I woke up in the wrong bed.
Jenny Jerkface hopping in here with my two cents for one hot second:
For the first time ever on this blog (I think-- don't hold me to that. I can't remember what the fuck I wore yesterday so...) I'm rec'ing a Jasper/Bella fic.
That's right, I said it. There's not a whole lot of lemons but there is some UST. The author does a great job of giving Jasper a voice and I really enjoyed the independent, more "adult" Bella.
See for yourself below:
Lessons Unexpected by Alexis Danaan (Twilighted)
Edward never came back. But that's okay, because Bella Swan is doing fine. Her life has been vampire free for four years and, while it was rough at first, she's content with her new life. That is, until a certain vampire casually walks back into her life. Can Bella accept the lessons that life is trying to teach her? Or is her future doomed to be dictated by her past?
The next rec also includes a little Jasper/Bella lovin' in the beginning but eventually the characters fall into canon pairings. This is one of those fics that is well written, meticulously thought-out and will more than likely have a happily ever after, which is something that I don't usually look for in a fic, because I'm dark and demented.
My Perfect Mr. Imperfect by xrxdanixrx (Twilighted)
Bella wanted Mr. Perfect, but he didn’t want her. When Mr. Imperfect comes along, can she look close enough to see just who is more perfect for her? A story about falling in love with the imperfections.
The last one is something that was rec'd here before, but it recently updated. Run to read it if you haven't already.
Expectations and Other Moving Pieces by chrometurtle
Everything I had done in my life seemed to lead up to this moment. The moment when I found myself bound inextricably to a man I didn't love, trapped in a life I didn't want. And if I left him, I would be entirely alone.
My favorite part of recommending stories is hearing what all of you are reading. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I get so excited to hear about new stories, but my To Be Read list is out of control. I need to hire someone with a sexy voice to follow me around and read fic to me 24/7.
