Fic Dive of the Month
July, Aug, Sept 2018

So many good stories on this month's list of favorites!

Congrats to all of our Faves!


Constable Masen of the RCMP by shouldbecleaning
There, standing at attention in the middle of the platform, was an absolutely perfect representation of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer in full red dress uniform. A man dedicated to upholding the law, selfless and humble can be quite attractive. However, this man was sheer beauty before he donned the official mantle. 

The Mountain Between Us by knicnort3
When their plane crashes on a remote Alaskan mountain, two strangers must find a way to work through their differences in order to survive the freezing temperatures and harsh terrain. B/E, AH, HEA 

Begin Again Again by pattyrose
Bella's life philosophy has shifted in the past few years since she reconnected with Edward: Life gets real, and no, you can't start the same batch over...but you can ALWAYS begin again. She likes this one. She's pretty sure this one will stick. But in the face of yet another life-altering event, can she and Edward follow this philosophy, and readjust their lives all over again?

The Whisky Distiller's WifeBy: 2carm2carm2
"She wondered how either God or the law regarded two people who didn't know the first thing about each other entering into a farce of a marriage." A tale of two people navigating life together after the global financial crisis with plenty of Scotch and a wee bit of deception. 

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Nolebucgrl
Based on the Netflix movie of the same name. Bella Swan's quiet life gets turned upside down when love letters to her crushes end up in the wrong hands. 

Mysterious Graffiti by Michaelmas54
Knowing something terrible about the future but being unable to warn anyone about what's going to happen without risking your own existence is the dilemma facing Edward Cullen but he decides to take that risk because for once in his life he cares. There's a stealthy build-up to an exciting climax for our Twilight characters. Rated M for the usual reasons. 

Driving Forces by Alyscia
Bella Cullen was about to have everything she had worked toward until she lost the two most important things in her life. Vice president of the legal department in her family's business, she tries to bury her pain in work. All of that changes the day she meets a man that has obviously suffered from a serious trauma. Edward Swan is more than shy; he's scared of everything. 

Seaside Solace by Pandora's Box Is Heavy
A lonely Edward moves back to his hometown to reconnect with his family after four long years away. He never expected a little ray of sunshine- and her mother- to change his life forever.

Inspiration Behind Writing

Friday October 12, 2018 at 6:47 PM

So, I am rapidly approaching my ten year anniversary for when I first started writing fanfiction. I don't remember what day it was exactly, but sometime in January of 2009 was when I first started writing (this is not the same as when I started posting)

As I approach this anniversary, I wanted to talk about what inspired me to write fanfiction. 

Unlike a lot of people, I actually did read Twilight and New Moon before the movie came out or was even officially heard of. I did not, however, read Eclipse... and as we all know Breaking Dawn came out at about the same time as the first movie.

I watched the movie in the theaters and then bought the complete set of books so I had them all. But I didn't actually start reading (rereading in the case of the first two) until after Christmas, because they were my Christmas present to myself. I was finished reading them before 2009 started. Then I got obsessed and I found a ton of extras on Stephenie's website. One such extra was a one-shot from Rosalie's POV. In this one-shot, the opening started out with Meyer explaining why she wrote it and, though I don't remember the exact words, it mentioned something about it being inspired by a fanfiction comp.

After that, I started reading Fanfiction. One of the first stories I ran into was a short from Jenks POV, of all people.

For anyone curious of the story I'm referencing, that would be Priority Client by Eowyn77

This story, and a few other shorts/one-shots from a handful of authors that were canonized, but were from other characters POVs, inspired me to start writing Alice's story. My idea was to write one (very large) story that started with Alice's time in the asylum and ended somewhere post Breaking Dawn. For the record... I only got about a fourth of the way done and the portion of the story that I did write is no longer posted. But back when it was up it went by the totally equivocal title of Alice.

This was not the first story I posted. In fact, Alice was originally to be for my eyes only. The first story I ever posted was inspired by an unfinished New Moon AU. That AU was Crimson Tears by Tee2007. New Moon AUs became an obsession of mine after reading that.

That story inspired me to write one called Five Years Later (no longer posted). From that one touch, I ended up writing almost a dozen different New Moon AUs... (none of them posted any longer).

In 2015 I deleted almost everything I had posted, with the exception of a handful of one-shots and a couple of shorts.

My second real reconnection and inspiration back into writing Fanfic came from Stephenie Meyer's gender-swap Life and Death. After that I've been inspired by a few other things to try other fics and plots I never would have normally written. 

So what inspired you to start writing fanfiction? Or have you ever wanted to write fanfiction, but haven't followed through, and if so why?

A Lot by crimsonmarie

Our Twi-faves as modern day Royalty.
