What fics are you reading?

Hello!  Just thought I'd do a post where we can share what we're up to in the world of fanfic.

I've got a few on the go at the moment:

This is a fab story, not like any of the other fics I've read and well written :o)

"Edward Cullen met the girl of his dreams but pushed her away due to his complicated, dangerous family life. When cruel irony reunites them, he’s forced to make a devastating choice: Save her from a fate worse than death or from the family business."

This is another fairly new story that I'm enjoying, I can't wait to see where it goes.

Your True Colors by Not What You Think (Betti Gefecht)
"Annie is a single woman, fetching, lucky and mildly obsessed with Twilight. She doesn't miss a thing in her life. Until one day she sees her own personal Edward. Her fantasy starts running wild about a beautiful boy, way too young to even think about it."

This story has been deservedly nominated for a TwiFic Indie award, so if you like it then please consider voting, the link is on the story's blog page here

The Canvas is by Twiholic (our Jelena!)
"Bella is a curator and in a serious relationship. When she meets a handsome artist, her life becomes one of confusion and anguish. Will she decide to go with the comfortable familiarity of her old lifestyle, or will she jeopardize it all for an adventure."

Jelena writes HOT lemons and her storyline's good too :o)

"What was it like for Sam Uley to become the first wolf? How did he handle loving Leah only to imprint on Emily? How did Emily get her scars? Here's Sam's POV from New Moon through Breaking Dawn & beyond."

IamKate has written a whole imprint saga about the wolf pack, of which this is the first.  She's been nominated for several fic awards and if you read her stories you'll see why.

Why my only pic of the wolf pack I have saved has them with shirts on is beyond me.  Brit readers, please note Gianni Di Marco on the right of the pic.

"The Misapprehension of Bella Swan Regarding the Inferior Intellect of Hockey Players: Through incessant stalking and persistence, can Edward wear down Bella's resistence and teach her to embrace her inner puck bunny? A ridiculous love story."

A funny new fic by one of the fandom's best known authors.

Closed my eyes to choose - this is what you get!

I realise that amongst you there are a number of other fics that you're writing, and I am getting around to them, my brain just jumps around so I tend to read whatever I happen to remember about on any given opportunity, but please give us links in the comments, don't be shy to pimp yourself! 
What about one more closed eyes photo choice while we're here?

So, what are you reading or would recommend at the mo?

I have so many that I want to rec!! But I'm at work and it gets too confusing trying to copy/paste links and having so many windows open...and trying to get some work done...yeah, that too. I'll have to come back over my lunch break!

I'm also reading The Canvas (um, duh) and The Misapprehension of Bella Swan and am totally loving them!! If you are not reading these you need to be!!

I'm soooooo behind in the world of fan fic...wish I could add to the list some recommendations but I first would have to work through these. Incredible work done by the ladies you have recc'd...writing is HARD work.

fanficzombie said...

I think I have read all the well knowns. I am trying to cut down on reading works in progress...when you have 20 going at once they do tend to get a bit muddled after a while. I am trying to only start completed ones now. I do subscribe to the blog The Lazy Yet Discerning Ficster. Once a week they send out a post of fics that were marked "complete" that week. I usually troll on that to try and find something new to read.

I didn't realize so many of our girls were writing stories. I am going to have to debate if I want to start up MORE in progress tho. Although I may have to jump on the Canvas. You had me at HOT LEMONS!!!

TwiWeasel said...

OK, I’m home now where I can feel free to open a gazillion windows and not have to worry about anyone looking over my shoulder…for the moment. Here’s what I’m reading:
Gynazole by Mrs.TheKing. You know how in the Twilight Saga, Bella’s almost handicapped by her clumsiness? Yeah, in this story…Edward makes her look down right graceful! This story is fucking hilarious, and you absolutely must read it.

Edward Wallbanger This one makes me giggle and squee at the same time…therefore, I read it when I’m alone, because that kinda sounds like someone’s strangling me…or something.

Vampire in Wolf’s Clothing and Jolene’s Revenge by Mrs. P. Do I even need to tell you why you should read these? (BTW, Mrs. P…oops! I realized just now that I didn’t have Jolene’s Revenge on story alert…I promptly fixed that!)

Trueblood Twilight (aka Honolulu Girl) has a nice little story: Cinderella A Tale of Lust Ok, Nice isn’t the word for it…I believe the word is erotica. (And wow.)

That’s not everything I’m reading, but it’s a few that I felt that deserved to be rec’d. And of course…we can’t forget Stan’s Natural Satellites and Shooting Stars even for the Non-Jacob fans, this is an awesome story.

Jeez...I hope all my stupid links work. If they don't and you want a link, either tell me here in the comments, or email me and I'll send it to you.

PS @ Stan - I was worried that the 18 & over warning thingamajigger was going to cockblock me at work but it didn't! YAY!

TwiWeasel said...

@ FanFicZombie - You ABSOLUTELY MUST read The Canvas! Perhaps I'm a little biased here, but Jelena's fic is AWESOME!! (PS sorry for all the shouty capitals, but I FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THIS FIC!!) *grin/wink*

NibbleitPattinsonakaNebilet said...

Ohhhh fuck I've fucked up and dunno how to alter it. I didn't know Stan had posted as I was working on a couple of other things and now I've posted and bugger sorry!

fanficzombie said...

@TwiWeasel OMG...Gynazole..that story is so freaking hilarious! It is like a train wreck you just can't stop looking at. Love it. I have commented on that crackfic a time or two! I am going to put The Canvas to date onto my Kindle tonight. Can't wait to check it out. Will have to check out Cinderella a Tale of Lust as well. Damnit, I did want any more in progress. LOL!! I am such an addict!

Cullenary Curser said...

I'm going to rec The Gentleman from Washington State. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5720172/1/The_Gentleman_from_Washington_State
"Senator Edward Cullen is the handsome scion of the Cullen family. A playboy's playboy, he is taken with an intern in his office, Bella Swan. She is untouchable for many reasons, and he's in a tough re-election battle with Jacob Black. AH,M Adult Content"

Very good and very well written!

Becky said...

Arse stupid blogger ate my post!!!!

@Nibbles you are too eager, lol! Why does your post say wed 24th? I thought I had lost a day!

As well as all the fab fics mentioned above, you absolutely must read Emancipation Proclomation! It is just awesome!!!
Beautiful, Dirty, Rich is good, also if you want super angsty & dark then try Just Wait. Its not for the faint hearted though, lol.

I have so many, I could go on all night!!

Oh must mention the new one i've started, Evading Edward, its seems to be really good too!

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight said...

@TwiWeasel, thank you for rec'ing my fic. I heart you big time.
Now, excuse me why I go off and read Jelena's fic...

17foreverlisa said...

I'm sure you're all expecting slash recs from me. Guess you'll just have to email me for those ;)

I fell hard for this one and now the author has gone on hiatus to deal with RL. I think I love her even more for that, so I'm still going to rec it. If you check it out, be sure and look at her profile and all of the work she put into giving us pictures of the locations and clothes she envisioned for each chapter, as well as her musical inspiration. Each chapter switches POVs from Bella to Edward, which I love. (You just gotta love the title.)

I Get Off

She also has an "outtakes" version.

Everyone Gets Off

This author is also slow to update, but good grief is it ever worth the wait. *fans self* It's actually told from "Rob's" POV.

The Anonymous Series

@fanficzombie - I get what you're saying about looking for completed stories, though. And I follow the blog you mentioned, too. It is a great resource for recs.

@Stan - I'm the same way. I'm easily distracted. That's why I love one shots so much; less of a time commitment.


Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Holy crap, such long comments, and just when I'm in a hurry too. I guess I will read them later.

Writes HOT lemons and her storyline is good too? LMAO, Stan, you kill me, seriously. I wish you could see the grin on my face.

Thank you for the shoutout. And I will take you on your word and read Stoney's and Poptarrt's fic.

I'm only reading MOTU, but need to read one more chapter to be up to date.

CW&IA, I need two.

And your fic, I also need to catch up on that Stan.

I've been reading some girl on girl BDSM, Yes Mistress, it's fucking hot.

Oh, and of course, HG's fic, which you all know I think is wow, because I've dedicated an entire post to it.

Stan said...

Gah! HG, so sorry I missed yours off, I love it too! It's another one I started and need to come back to. I wish I had more hours in the day...

itsjustme1217 said...

"Fearless" is my favorite ff, I would recc it to everyone.

Jayla said...

@17foreverlisa: i sent you an email for slash recs.

@TwiWeasel: Wallbanger - exactly my reaction. Effin' hilarious.

i'm really enjoying _At The Deep End_ by naelany

aside from that - i'm pretty much reading the same thing as everyone else. i really wish The Arrangement & Paper Moon would update...)

(and since i'm at work i can't post links - sorry!)

TwiWeasel said...

I know how a lot of you feel about wanting only complete fics...a while (quite a while, actually) back, I decided I was only going to read completed fics. Then I found a little story called Clipped Wings & Inked Armor. I almost didn't even bother to start reading it. Whew! *wipes brow* Glad I changed my mind. Same with MoTU...I wasn't going to read it, but out of sheer boredom one day, I started it. Man am I glad I was bored.

@ Fanficzombie - *evil laughter* Welcome to the dark side! You won't be sorry!

@ HonGirl - I calls 'em as I sees 'em!

@ Jayla - OMG, love me some Wallbanger!

@ all - Thanks for the other recs! Now if you ladies will excuse me, I have an email to send to Lisa...

Stacked Like Sookie said...

Suck shit Nibbles,you give me shit about my techtardia (which is very chronic) and you stuff up your post! LOL!
@TwiWeasel, I'm half way through Clipped Wings & Inked Armour. Amazing story. You have to read The Blessing & the Curse by the Black Arrow. Turns out she is Australian & it's her first fic & her writing is like fucking poetry it's so beautiful. Of course I'm reading @HG's Cinderalla a Tale of Lust-whew! Yum!
Seeing I'll read anything I've also read a few Jacob/Bella fic's & even read a funny one called Love Park where Bella is a fag hag & Emmett is her best "girlfriend" & Edward is bi & they have these hot treesomes. Woo Hoo!
Sorry Nibbs, you still love me? Mwa XX

Dangrdafne said...

I can't possibly keep up with all these awesome fan fictions. I am reading or they are on my list already almost all of the stories recommended above. Wow. I wish I didn't have to work and I could just read all day :)

Mama Cougar said...

OMG, I'm a total Fic whore, but...I'm like, a high class Fic whore. I only read GOOD fics. The moment my eyes wander across a blatant grammar error, or if the story refuses to ADVANCE in any way, I am just done.

Anywhooo....here you go:

An Introduction to Swirl and Daisy-TOO DAMN CUTE.

The Gentleman from Washington State-politics and Senatorward? SO THERE.

Stranger than Fiction-LOVE. HARD.

The University of Edward Masen-Enough sexual tension to allow for spontaneous combustion.

There are many, many more...but I am unwilling to reveal the depths of my addiction here.

The Cougar's Den
