Summary:

 

Yolanda Banner v2

Beautiful, terminally ill, Yolanda is abandoned by her partner to die in the woods near Forks, but is stumbled upon by Rosalie and Emmett while out hunting.  The kind-hearted Cullen family take this former journalist under their protection & care; see how she learns what they are and that there really are vampires in this world.  Her story plays out in a way she could never have imagined. 

What would you do if you discovered vampires truly existed?  What if you were offered immortality? What if a chance encounter brought you the love you had always dreamed of?

All your Cullen family favourites are very much involved in this story.  An Irish vampire comes calling to add a new twist to Cullen life. 

This is in essence a love story, mostly told from Yolanda's POV as a newcomer to the world of vampires.  Sometimes the story is told from the perspective of one of the others as they watch her adapt to her surroundings. 

Plenty of erotic moments contained in the story for the gorgeous Yolanda you see pictured in the banner.

Story rated for explicit lemony scenes and language and dark issues.
It has been migrated across from the FanFiction site and is now complete.

“Is she even alive, Emmett? I can’t hear a heartbeat from here.”  Rosalie stood there, hands on hips, glaring at me as if it was my fault we had stumbled upon a body in the woods. She clicked her tongue impatiently.

We’d been out for a couple of hours hunting and making out gloriously and lustily in the bracken. When the day had started, bright and early, I’d never imagined it would take this turn of events. Vampires don’t like surprises.

This story is absolutely FANTASTIC!!!  Just loving it but wondering about Alice and why she is seeing her...also I just wish she would tell Carlisle everything!!  AGH!  Can't wait for more!



Author's Response:

Glad you're enjoying it! Hmmm... lots of theories about Alice. It will be explained, but not for a little while. As for Carlisle, well, Bella has her reasons for keeping things to herself for now.

Thanks for reading and reviewing! :-)

Lizzie Black left La Push the moment she turned 18, determined to outrun the pain that she felt after her Dad and siblings were hit straight on by a drunk driver and killed. Three years later she's returned, having been called home after her mother committed suicide. While packing up her Mom's room she finds her bucket list, along wth letters to Edward. She decides to do all of the things on the list her Mom never got to, finishing it for her.

Edward Cullen has lived as a nomad since he left Bella. His family and he have little contact, but that could be about to change. Who knew one little list could mean so much?

*Banner by maimu [velvetkitten]

 

Photobucket

 

Bella finds out her Fiancee, Edward, is killed in a crash in Paris she falls to ruin. After many suicide attempts, she is institutionalized. Bella tries to live without her life, but can she? What happens when an unexpected visitor appears?    

Excerpt: "Edward," I gasped. Suddenly I knew I was dead. This whole white and grey place a concoction in my mind, the movie What Dreams May Come was suddenly wildly realistic. Still, it didn't make sense why he would be in Hell with me.
"But you're... you were supposed to be... dead." Abruptly a whirling vortex of grey spiraled around, and at the center was my beautiful green and bronze. My body felt weightless and eventually, in my mind, I disappeared into the black.

Well that was very intense and heartbreaking and now you have me hooked!  Must read more!



Author's Response:

Well thank you! And thank you for your review :o)

Summary: Past Featured Story

What if Edward did not take the dramatic route and wait till noon to step into the sun in Volterra?  What if Alice and Bella were incapable of getting to him in time?  What if he was not the only casualty of bad timing and misread visions?

 

This story takes us down an alternate path than what we followed in New Moon.  The Cullen’s are no longer whole and Bella is so badly damaged that she may be unreachable as she closes herself off to the pain of the outside world.

 

Can a new love save her?  Can his voice pull her from the darkness?

 

This story is rated NC-17 for major angst, suicide and the possibility of far off lemons (who am I kidding?  If you have read any of my stories, you know there will be lemons…but not for a while).

AWWWW...that was lovely!!!  I loved the tree-trimming and the story about the piano ornament....and the proposal was perfect!



Author's Response:

Thanks hon!  I always feel like as much as I would like to let Edward and Esme rest in peace, I also feel like the family and Bella would not let big events like theor first Christmas without them pass without mentioning them.  I thought the ornament story would do that.

Thanks for the review!

Till next time

OMG that was just brutal...the tears are rolling, but I can't stop reading now!!!



Author's Response:

Oh hon, I'm sorry.  I should probably warn you that it doesn't get better (tears wise) for a while more.  Grab the tissues and hunker down.  It is going to be a bumpy ride.

Thanks for the review.

OK...so that was by far my favourite chapter so far...Rosalie had me sobbing once again and then I was laughing through my tears at Emmett.  I think you have done an excellent job with the characters so far...

Off to get more kleenex and on to the next chapter!



Author's Response:

Ahhh,I'm glad you liked it.  Sorry about the tissue support, but it will get better, I promise.

OK.....so I didn't cry that chap....most likely because I was still recovering from the last one.....hoping Bella is not going to make Carlisle make that choice!

 



Author's Response:

Thanks for the review.  It would be an impossible choice for Carlisle to make.

Carlisle singing to Bella was one of the first scenes I thought of when this idea for came to me.  Thanks for the review.
