What's Owning You....

Hey everyone, the other day I asked you all to let me know some stories that were owning you completely.  Well we got some awesome responses to that question.  We would like to share those responses with you now.  
So here we go...


The first fic has been owning a reader is called Bridges
it is written by Savory.

The reader that it has been owning is:   StartTheFantasy aka Leslie

This is what StartTheFantasy had to say about Bridges...

The references to movies and food in this story is outstanding that once you start reading it you aren't able to stop. Also the love for bridges in South Carolina is truly amazing. Edward and Bella are both these amazing individuals in this story, the love that is written between the two makes you heart just explode with joy.


The next story comes to us by Charmie 
Who says Full Disclosure is owning her.  Full Disclosure is writen by: BettySmith

This is what Charmie had to say about this story:   You know those fics that start off good and slow and then they get you with this beautiful love story that just capture your heart. Well with this story you were given a prologue that showed the future so you knew the couple was in for serious heartbreak. Whenever there is an update I can't help but drop anything just to read it! It's seriously owning me now.


Our next story comes from KeyeCullen and the story that is owning her right now is: I Want It Painted Black writen by SaritaDreaming  

This is what KeyeCullen had to say about I Want It Painted Black...

OME where to begin. Well first of Izzy (Bella) is a complete badass! I mean, she is all black hair, viper bites and a "in your face" attitude. And she meets Edward the vampire. Izzy has had an experience with a bad vamp and when she meets Edward in class, she knows immediately what he is and that throws him for a loop. He is admittedly smitten and she couldn't care less.

But Izzy has a reason for being like she is....she has experienced tragedy in her life and her attitude is her protective mechanism. Edward works on breaking through that barrier and pursues her. Finally he realizes that Izzy is his mate, a fact that he won't share with her because she would run if she knew even though she has a problem with admitting that she loves him.

This story has it all.......suspense, intrigue, love, lemons....and Sarita writes so descriptively that you feel like you can "see" the story as you are reading it.

It, definitely, is worth your time to read this story. Just read the first chapter and I, guarantee, you will be hooked


Thank you so much ladies for letting us know the fics you can't put down.  Hopefully this will help a reader to find something new to read. 
Thanks so much for reading and make sure you let us know What's owning you...

Story Rec/ DiamondHeart78

Well ladies here we are again, its time for our weekly Fic Recs/Reviews.  So its DiamondHeart78's week to do a review, so here we go!!  I hope you all take the time to check out this fic, I know I will be.

This weeks Rec/Review is called Puddle Jumping by 107yearoldvirgin.  

Two days ago, I decided to pick out one of the numerous fics I had bookmarked, and chose Puddle Jumping by 107yearoldvirgin. Now, if you know me, you know I’ve read a hefty load of fics since I joined the Fandom, and anyone who has a fraction of the reading experience that I have knows 107yearoldvrigin. You might have read any of her other fantastic stories like Into the Mystic, Bad News Bella, and my personal favorite, Eight Days a Week. So when I picked this one, I might have been a bit biased as I already knew I’d probably love whatever she was writing. And as always, I was right.

Puddle Jumping is a story that throws convention out the window, especially when you’re talking Edward/Bella love stories. And you know this going in. She tells you, it’s not your typical love story. It’s not. It’s not. And yet, you still swoon.

I'm Isabella Marie Swan. Eighteen years old. Senior. Short in stature. Skinny fat.
Brown hair and eyes. And this is my story.
If you haven't figured it out already, this isn't your run-of-the-mill fairy tale love story.
It's not even a paranormal romance.
I wouldn't even categorize this much of a romance at all.
Because I'm not the kind of person to fall in love.
And neither is the guy I'm head over heels for.

I don’t like to give much away about the story, and I fear if I talk too much here, I will. So allow me to be cryptic.

Her Bella is one of my favorites, but then again, 107yearoldvrigin has a knack for writing great Bellas, all of which are usually spunky and witty, but with a lot of heart, and this is no exception.

Bella tells her story directly to the reader, and you’re immediately sucked in as if you’re talking to her at a Starbucks somewhere. It’s all told in retrospect, where her current predicament finds herself looking back at the entire period of time from when Edward enters her life as children, to high school.

The story begins with a young 10-year-old Bella babysitting a 9-year-old Edward. Don’t ask me why a 10-year-old is babysitting a child merely a year younger than her, but according to the author, this is something she did all the time as a kid. That part was a little weird for me, but I let it slide.

Edward isn’t your typical child, he’s exceptional in every way. Bella understands this immediately, from the moment he saves her life as children.

Because of Bella’s antics (I mean, what do you except? She’s ten), Edward’s mother cuts Bella out of Edward’s life for several years until she visits an arts and crafts festival. Edward is there with his mother, selling his artwork. He’s awkward and a prodigy, and without giving away too much, I’ll let you figure out what his deal is when you read.

Bella is instantly taken by him and she takes it upon herself to help him socialize, falling for him hard in the process.

Luckily, this fic updates almost every day or couple of days, and the pacing is just perfect. Sometimes when I read inner monologue, I find myself skimming when the character gets too wordy. Not here. I love reading every thought that comes from Bella’s mind, and she’s not repetitious at all.

And I have to say, as an art teacher, I come across students like Edward all the time, and they are a complete joy to teach and interact with. We can learn so much from understanding how people like Edward think and how they process emotions, relationships, and words.

Give it a read, I promise you’ll thank me later.

Make sure to check out the links below: Also please let the writer know that you love this story.  Let them know what you think.  That means write a review, it only takes one for the writer to know what you think...

Story Rec/Review... By Ayf Birdowski

Hey everyone, Here we are again.  Back for another story Rec/Review.  I hope you all are doing good and read this new story. But your not here to listen to me rant lol, your here to read this rec.  So Thanks to Ayf for getting this to me so I could get it out to you!

This weeks Rec/Review is Strange Brew by Magnolia822  
M, AH, Romance/Humour, E/B. EPOV
This is one of the newer stories by one of my favorite authors, Magnolia822, who is author of The Cullen Sutras, as well as her other new fic, A Quiet Fire. Strange Brew is only a several chapters in, but it's a great and pretty hilarious story.

The story takes place in Vermont, where a newly divorced Edward Cullen is the owner of a small brewery. He hires Bella to work in his tasting room, and quickly finds himself intrigued to his new employee.

What I like about it is that its quite funny, with some great banter happening between Edward and Bella. It is also pretty informative about the qualities of a good beer, as well as the brewing process, showing the author's expertise in the area.

Here is one of my favorite passages:

"You're still here?" Bella asks. Her face is a little flushed and her proximity is... unsettling. Her thigh brushes against my bent knee in what I'm sure is an unintentional movement. Right? She's noticeably tipsy.

"I appear to be."

"You work an awful lot, Edmund," she says, a glint in her eye.

"So I've been told."

At the end of our marriage, it was one of Victoria's main complaints. Truthfully, one of the reasons I'd worked so much was to avoid fighting with her, which was all we seemed to do when we were together.

"You should have a little fun once in a while."

"I do," I lie.

"Do you?" Another thigh brush. I glance down. Damn, those are tight pants. For a split second I wonder what she'd do if I put my glass down and cupped her ass. That's what my hand wants to do at this moment—snake around and pull her against me.
She'd probably alert Human Resources.

Wait. I am Human Resources.

I bet her ass is firm.


"What sort of crap has Alice been feeding you?" I say gruffly, willing myself not to think about her… shit, I'm thinking about it. She's an employee, I argue with myself, and you're just a lonely, horny bastard.

Also, check out Magnolia822's blog for biweekly beer rec's by Beerward himself! . Magnolia822

We hope you enjoyed this story Rec and will hop on over and read this story.  Make sure to leave Magnolia822 some major love as well.

Story Rec/Review... 1/6/2011

Hey everyone, I know its been a while but I have a story that you all will love.  Its called Silence Can Be Defining. 

This story is more real than most stories I've read.  You can feel every emotion that Bella is feeling and you feel her pain.  Its writen by an amazing writer:  missy555 . 

She has only wrote this one story but I would love it if she wrote more and would be one of the ones to read it!

I hope you all will check this one out and if you do let her know you heard about it from our blog.  Okay Okay I'll shut up and let you see what I'm talking about.  Her is a couple clips from the story.

Do you ever just sit back and wonder what you've done with your life for the past 16 years? I do.

My name is Isabella Marie Swan and today is my 17th birthday.

I've never really thought about my previous years enough to be disappointed in the way my life has panned out. I've gotten so used to the bullying that I never really thought there was another way to live my life. I don't stick up for myself and most of the things they say to me I cant really disagree with.

I forgot to mention that I am 190 pounds and the biggest girl in my school, Forks High.

Of course, when they make fun of me it hurts. Why wouldn't it? I had no friends to run to and cry on their shoulder. No body liked me. I was the outcast. Just because I was a couple pant sizes bigger than the rest of them.

The only person I talk to is my dad, Charlie. Oh! And my dog, Cali. I know that probably doesn't seem typical for a 17 year old girl to confide in her dad and her dog, then in her mom. It would probably be easier and less awkward most of the time, but my mom left when I was 4. So that's out of the question. But my dad helps when he can, and when he cant I have my fateful dog to cuddle against my face to make me feel better.

My dad has raised me the best that he can, but unfortunately he thought that the only way to feed me was to drop by McDonald's on the way home from the Police station.

I think you can see where the 190 pounds came from.

I don't eat that stuff much anymore, since when I turned 16, I got a job at Forks Wildlife Center, and demanded that I be the one to take care of meals from then on.

Thankfully he didn't put up much of a fight.

But, unfortunately my metabolism isn't as fast as my dad's so as he lost 20 pounds in a month and a half, I lost 5.

Maybe you can see how disheartening that was since he didn't give a flying fart in space what he looked like, but I was going to school everyday and being called "fat ass" and "Big Belly Bella." Also, constantly being asked to do the truffle shuffle, which by the way, wasn't as a amusing as they made it out to be.

So that's where I stand. 190 pounds, no friends, laughing stalk of the school, and talked to my dog more then anyone in the world.

See what I mean you can feel her pain, you can tell just by this part she is very self conscious over her weight and everyone at school makes her life a living hell.  Think about going through that every day and you might be able to feel her probably wont even come close really.

Once I packed all my things away, I stood up to start walking out, but as I was passing by Mike's desk, he thrust his leg in front of me. I went tumbling down and knocked over a desk in the process. As I was laying there I heard everyone in the room laughing.

"Why don't you watch where your going fat ass? If your not careful, you might start an earthquake next time!" Mike sneered.


I sat up and started gathering my papers that went flying everywhere during my fall. Then of course, the water works.

I really hate crying. Especially over the mean things they say and do. I don't like them to know their getting to me, but in some situations I can't help it. Some things they do are just to cruel to ignore.

"What the fuck is your problem?" I heard someone say. The voice didn't sound familiar. Well that's just awesome. Someone new to make my life a living hell. But when I looked up, the owner of the voice wasn't even looking at me, he was looking, no, I take that back, he was glaring at Mike.

Once I really looked at him, I realized he was the most beautiful man I have ever seen in my life. I swear this guy was built by gods or angels.

You know that scene in Hercules where Zeus makes Pegasus out of clouds? Well that is exactly what popped into my mind when I looked at him.

So of course, because he is a beautiful creature on this earth, I know that he had to have been talking to me, even though he seemed to be looking at Mike.

"I'm sorry," I whispered.

He snapped his head over to me and his eyes immediately softened.

"What are you apologizing for? It was this assholes fault you fell."

I just gaped at him. Everything is my fault, always. My existence messes up everything. I've known this. People make it very clear that I'm a walking disaster. So what he just said made absolutely no sense to me. I know that Mike tripped me, but I would never expect him to take the blame. It would all be MY fault.

"Help her pick up her things jackass!" he yelled to Mike.

"Fuck that! Why should I have to? Maybe she should watch where her fat ass is going so she wouldn't have this problem." Mike said.

I just dropped my head and started gathering my things up again.

"Listen man, your new here right?" I heard Mike ask.

"Yeah." the boy answered.

"Then let me give you some advice," Mike started, "Girls like Big Belly over here don't deserve our sympathy. Shes a waste of space. No one talks to her because it would destroy your rep if you did. So trust me, because all shes good for is.. well, shes good for nothing I guess."

At this point the my tears were flowing freely down my face. I knew the boy would take Mike's advice. Hell, if I were him, I'd take Mike's advice too. That is, if I had a rep to destroy anyway.

But what happened next, completely stunned me.

"Oh yeah, I get it," the boy replied nonchalantly. He pivoted his body, like he was getting ready to turn around and leave, but then all the sudden he whirled around and punched Mike right in the jaw. Mike went flying back into his desk. Everyone in the room gasped, including me. When I looked over at the boy, he was shaking his hand, I'm guessing from the force of his punch, and was walking over to where I was crouched on the floor. He started picking up my books and papers and was handing them to me as he went.

As he was doing that, I started observing everything about him. His hair was a dozen different colors. The ones that I could see were gold, bronze, copper, dark brown, and tan. It was unusual but absolutely gorgeous. His eyes were emerald green. It literally looked like someone cut an emerald and stuck it in his eye. He had a very defined jaw, and lips that looked like they were for sinners.

When he handed me my last paper, he looked up and smiled at me. His smile made me feel like I couldn't breath. It was magnificent.

Don't we all picture Edward this way, the knight in shinning armor, the writer of this story gets Edward to a T.  I love this story so much and I know you all will to.  Make sure you all check it out! (the link is above)

Another review will be posted very soon.  Thanks so much for reading.  Let us know what you think.
