Fan Fic Friday with Tess

Two weeks, I told you I was reading The Submissive Trilogy. I finished up with The Training (last of the trilogy) on last Monday.  The Sub Trilogy is AH-mazing!!  My sensei, @allthingsHHH told me that it was a MUST-read for all fanfic readers and like a good grasshopper, I read it.  She was right...it's like a classic.  Everyone should read it!  (click HERE)

After The Sub, I quickly jumped into The Tutor by ItzMegan73. You can find it on fanfic.net (click HERE).

The Tutor was SOOOOOO flippin' good!!  It's about Edward and Bella as high school students and Bella is a new transfer into Forks High.  I'm sure you can guess from the title that someone is a tutor and someone a tutoree (<---is that a word?).  Anyhoo, it's a beautifully written story about E&B and it has a HEA, which is essential.  The relationships of Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, and Emmet are a fun part of the story.  I always enjoy seeing how an author is going to incorporate the supporting roles.  Edward is a badass, which is hott.  I highly recommend!!

After The Tutor, I started reading my next fic...STAT.

That's the way I deal with ending a fic, I just immediately immerse myself in a new one. If I don't, the deep dark i-miss-Edward-so-much depression sets in and I get all emo and junk. It's not pretty. You should have seen me after I finished Emancipation Proclamation (my first fic). I was such a newbie and I didn't know where to go next. Similar to when I finished the Twilight Saga for the first time. You remember that feeling of emptiness and loneliness...sitting around wondering what Edward and Bella are up to. Thank goodness for Twitter and for super awesome friends who lead me in the right direction.

So, now I know. I have to have my next fic on the back burner...ready to go.

So, after finishing the Tutor...I can't tell you what I read because it's classified...ya know, "contraband" and I don't want someone using mean words and ALL CAPS at me in the comments or on Twitter, so I'll keep it myself.  Thankyouverymuch.

Can I say that I think it's a damn shame that amazing fics have to be pulled?!  It is such a travesty. (<---again flair for the dramatics.)  In all seriousness, I've read a few fics now that are considered "contraband" and I can't imagine never getting the chance to read them. 

I'm currently reading Caged Bird Sings by @suzie55.  It feels good to be able to openly discuss a fic again!  You can find CBS and the rest of Suzie's fics on fanfic.net (click HERE) and you can chit chat w/ Suzie on Twitter @suzie55...she's all shades of awesome!

What are you reading? Do you have any rec's for me?? Do you need a rec...looking for something to read?

Let's talk fic!

I'm a Twibetween and Some Rob P0rn (for good measure)

Happy Thursday!  I think every day is a day to be celebrated, right?  I mean, we did wake up breathing this morning and Rob is still looking delicious as ever, so all-in-all, it's a going to be a good day.

PLUS, The super awesome chics at Twibetween let me be their Twibetween today!  You can read my answers to their questions HERE.  And if you're stopping by from there, I didn't want to disappoint you with a post from two weeks ago, so I specifically came over and threw up a post just for you.  You should feel special.

I think Rob is an appropriate way to celebrate any occasion...even a random Thursday or the day Twibetween pimps you on their blog.

So, let the Rob P0rn commence.

(hello, jaw p0rn. nice to see you)

I don't know about you guys, but I've been feasting daily on eye candy from the set of Cosmopolis.

Rob just looks so so yummy in his crisp white shirts, black pants, and shades.  Mmmmmm. I just wanna eat him with a spoon...or no utensils at all, yeah I'll go with my hands.

The man is sex-on-a-stick in a suit. Kills me *ded*.

Aren't him and Dean the body guard just cute?!

They make an adorable couple...I mean that in the bromance way, because of course I am Team Robsten all the way.

Which is why this picture pleases me to no end. 

Rob looks totally bored with that Sarah chic.

(**pictures from Celebuzz.com)
What have you girls been up to lately?  Are you looking forward to Cosmopolis?  Have you read the book?  Thoughts?

I'll be back tomorrow for a fan fic review post!  Hope you all have a great day!

Fan Fic Friday with Tess

Fan fic.  It's hard to believe that a mere three months ago, I was totally oblivious to the wonderful world that was just a mouse click away.  Sure I had seen people reference fics on their blogs.  I saw a lot about some dude named Fifty and a hottass picture of Edward in a suit usually followed.  There was talk about Master of The Universe and how "Icy" was the shit.  But all of that was just talk to me.  I had never taken the plunge...never dipped my toe in the waters.

I had yet to fall into the rabbitt hole...or jump...I think I kinda jumped.  Head first.

I'm finding it difficult to even recollect how it happened.  Someone...who was it...God bless them...I've got to remember their name.  If it was you then you MUST speak up.  Whoever, it was who had me read Emancipation Proclamation...I owe them.  Like I should be indebted to them forever.

EP owned me.  I hadn't been owned by a story and characters like that since I spent 7 days reading the Twilight Saga for the first time.  It was magical.  I was so in love with Mafiaward.  It's such a powerful and moving story.  I was so invested in the characters.  I was reading it at stoplights and under the table at dinner..."bathroom breaks" at work.  Most would probably agree that it shouldn't be anyone's "first".  Not the best way to pop your fan fic cherry...it's so intense and angsty.  I spent a whole Saturday just crying...ALL DAY.

After EP, I went onto something a little more fluffy.  Edward Wallbanger.  HALLELUJAH.  I love this fic so much.  The relationships between them all are so fun.  Edward is a hunkalicious big shot photographer and Bella is an interior designer.  Edward bangs walls. A LOT. If ya know what I mean. *raises eyebrows*

Clipped Wings and Inked Armor was my third fic.  It's intense and sad...sad sad sad, but it's also HOT HOT HOT.  Tattward has been the star of many of my dreams since reading this fic. Oh, and cupcakes...you can't forget the cupcakes!  Thinking my next tattoo should be a cupcake in honor of Tattward...he is just that damn mind-blowingly-sexy. <---I think I just made that up "blowingly". Hmm. I like it.

*I got in trouble yesterday on the Twitter for proclaiming my love for CW&IA...I forget that having "contraband" and going public with that shit is against the "rules".  Rookie mistake.  Lesson learned.*

So, I'm sad to say the CW&IA is one of those AMAZING-everyone-should-read-fics that no longer is posted on fanfic.net or twilighted. *sad panda face*

As any good Grasshopper would, I've made my way through a lot of the "classics"...and I've loved each and every one of them...being OWNED by each fan fic while I was reading it...falling deeply and madly in love with Edward over and over again.  That's the beauty of fan fic.

Knotches on my Fan Fic bedpost also include:
*Misapprehension of Bella Swan (Concerning Hockey Players...or something like that) - Hockeyward and Snarkella...such fun lemons and a seriously entertaining relationship between Bella and Emmett!
*The Office - Hello, Beautiful Bastard!  Gah, I loved reading this story!  Such a fun read.  You'll never look at an office desk the same way again. Swearsies.  And you might have trouble keeping your concentration in a conference room...EVER again. <---I know this from experience.
*Master of The Universe - If Fifty doesn't own you, he should.  If you don't fantasize about the Red Room, you should.  I'm pretty sure I'm the only person on the face of Twitardia who hadn't read it...so, I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about.
*The Blessing and The Curse - another angsty heart-wrenching read...but totally worth it!  It was completely different from anything else I had read...shedding a new light on E&B's relationship.  I loved it!
*Pound of Flesh (WIP) by @sophiejax or Jaxon22 - Punkassward is the hottest criminal you'll ever want to have <---in the biblical sense.  He's angry, holds secrets, and has issues with the 'L' word.  But a few chapters in and you'll be changing your nickname to "Peaches" and eating Oreos everyday.
*Help Wanted - another FANfreakinTASTIC fic by the awesomely amazing @sophiejax - Edward is an A-list movie star and Bella is a PA in need of work, hence the title "Help Wanted".  Edward hires Bellas to be his PA and the rest is history...mixed in with a little angst, heart-warming-panty-dropping romance, and a whole lotta lemons...lemony lemony goodness. 

I'm currently reading The Submissive Trilogy by @tarasueme or tara sue me.  WOW.  Once, again...I'm totally owned by a new fan fic and falling in love with a new Edward.  Just so you know, I'll be Domward's sub anytime.  No safewords...not even a fake one.

A big thanks to the follow fan fic h00rs for keeping me in the goods and rec'ing fics for me:
@allthingsHHH - she's like my sensei
@Smitten_RPattz - also been a mentor and leads me in the right direction
@dangrdafne - gives good fic
@Mama_Cougar - gives good fic
@ChloeCougar - gives good fic
@jedecec - gives good fic
@Fiftyownsme - my newest Twitter friend and giver of good fan fic rec's
@JiffSimpson - for being my IRL Twitter friend who I can talk all things fan fic with...what a life saver!  I'd probably combust if I couldn't talk about it in person with someone.  So, thanks, Jiff!

I'm sure I've missed someone important...but I've read a lot of fan fic and it's taking up a large portion of my brain...so, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

This was just kind of a post to summarize my fan fic experience thus far, but I plan on doing a Fan Fic Friday post each week with reviews of my current reads and rec's...and requests for rec's...and maybe some pics of my current favorite Edward.

I give you PAW (I borrowed this from http://tehlemonadestand.blogspot.com/)


'Til next Friday.



h00rin' it up like nobody's business,

MMA Monday : That One Time When Rob Said F***

Cheeri-O! I don't know what kind of greeting that is.

I like speaking in a fake-British-meets-the-South kind of accent.

I also like using British "cuss" words...bloody hell, stuff like that.


I also love this boy who is British.

His name rhymes with Schmob Schmattinson. Perhaps you've heard of him.

Last night the MTV (aka More Twilight Victories) Movie Awards rocked my world.

Here are my Rob/KStew/Robsten/Twilight Highlights:


He kissed Taylor and said "don't worry I'll be gentle...I've kissed a guy before."
He told KStew that he wanted to take her backstage. (If I had been wearing panties, that line would have made them combust...fortunately I was going commando.)

He was adorkable and sexy as hell delivering his lines while giving Reese her award.  "You played my mother.  Then you played my lover...and we f*cked." (<----MTVBleeperFAIL)

Then Reese corrected his joke..."By the way, Rob.  You were supposed to say "I played your mother.  Then I played your lover, which makes you the best motherf*cker in Hollywood." (<---That's Tess's version.  I can't remember exactly how she worded it and I'm too lazy to Google it.)

#Team Twilight made a clean sweep...almost.  Only losing the "Best Breakout Performance".

It was just a total win all night long.  So much face time with Rob being on stage off and on all night. 

THEN...THE MOMENT...the Breaking Dawn trailer presented by the Trifecta.

I have two words "BROKEN HEADBOARD".

Thank you Bill.  You made my day...my year.  The broken headboard is to Breaking Dawn what the leg hitch was to Eclipse.  Essential.

To put the cherry on top, there were Robsten moments abounding at the after party and backstage.

I just couldn't have been a happier fangirl.

It was like Christmas and Rob was Santa (a hott hott ass Santa)...and we got everything on our wish list.

What did you think of the MMAs?

What was your favorite Rob/KStew/Robsten/Twilight moment?

Tell me how you feel about the BD trailer??

Let's fangirl together...c'mon it'll be fun.  *squeeeeee*
