Fic Rec Awkwardward

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 5:29 PM

So, I have to admit that I am a really serious Geekward fan in any form or fashion.  The Boy In the Red Sweater held my heart for a long time.  I have a new fic rec with another deliciously awkward Edward (and it's not mine).  It's called Awake In the Infinite Cold by quothme.  It is fantastic.  It's only got 5 chapters so far, but it is a pearl.  So, if you love geeky, socially awkward, slightly mental guys this might be for you.

And here is a Daniel Gale pic for good measure.



A rose by any other name...

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 5:19 PM

So this has probably been done already, and the rangers are totally welcome within their rights to extinguish this campfire should it be redundant, but I was just wondering if you guys were willing to share who your Edward is. I pictured Edward very differently from Rob (though I do love him), and I wanna see some photos, descriptions, drawings, etc. of who your Edward is.

Another thought for discussion could also be if your vision of Edward changes in the fanfiction universe. I tend to picture my fanfictionwards differently from the books.

Here's the closest I've ever gotten to my vision of Edward:


his name is owen steuart. just in case you're wondering after this... ;)


Things are bad, really really bad...

if people take this seriously. I just came across this article and HAD to share. The article is from August so I don't know if it was already posted here or on another forum.

You Want Robert Pattinson's Sperm? Here You Go!


Very often during the day I find myself thinking, "I want to have Robert Pattinson's baby. I wish I had his sperm." Now that problem has been solved for me! Croybank sperm bank is now offering a new feature: sperm from celebrity look-a-likes. So it won't be Robert, but it'll be Robert's identical twin! We hope.

YourTango does bring up some problems with the otherwise genius plan. First of all, you don't get to see a picture of the sperm donor, so someone could totally lie about what they look like. "Hi! I look like George Clooney!" No, you look like Jonah Hill.

Cryobank sperm bank is located in Los Angeles; so all those celeb-obsessed women who shouldn't be mothers can now start popping them out like popcorn. Although, you should keep in mind that a mother's genes play a big part in making attractive celebrity children. Would Suri Cruise be as cute if her mother wasn't Katie Holmes and her father Tom Cruise? I think not.

And there is always the chance for ugly offspring. Celebs can have ugly babies too. You don't believe me? Just look through some baby photos and I'll prove it to you.

If all of this sounds fine to you, then go ahead and get you some celeb look-a-like sperm! And send me pictures of the baby! I'd love to see if it's attractive or not.



Am I the only one disturbed by this?


A very pleasant vampire indeed...

This is my first (and probably my last!) post...

This was published in the Irish Times magazine two weeks ago, and lets face it, who doesn't love them some Dr. Carlisle...

(It was the LA Times post that reminded me I had seen this - apologies for not putting it up sooner)


potty mouth

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 3:10 PM

Okay so I'm in the middle of reading a fic when Bella refers to her...girlie part and a pussy.

I had to stop reading. I mean its bad enough that Edward calls it that but that word is so gross to me.

It may sound childish or like I'm a prude but, I just cannot stand some of the slang words they use in fics.

I'm quite alright with reading the word penis or vagina. Hell, even dick or cock. (wow this campfire sounds gross)

But we have got to come up with better nick names for vagina than slick folds and...the previously memtioned word that i refuse to type again.

Please tell me some of you agree.

What are some of the euphemism you've heard that made you cringe, or even laugh for that matter?


all vamp?

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 3:01 PM

I know that most fanfiction is all human, but i am really in the mood to read some all vamp stuff.  I mean, it IS a vampire series after all.   My problem is that most of the all vamp fics I have found are utter crap (except past and pres. which I have already read).  I beg you, please recommend some well written fics to me, rated M please because I am a perv.



I'm sorry. This is semi Twilight related.

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 2:33 PM

So forgive me WTVOC, this is not a Twilight-related post but in the name of Scrubs.. I urge you to read it anyway.


Now, we're all a bunch of music snobs obv. *cough* I personally hate New Moon Soundtrack *cough*


And whilst I was just chillin', wagging school, all that fun stuff, I was listening to my itunes and who should come on...


My favourite band ever.


The Red Hot Chilli Peppers.


So then I was thinking about how awesome they are and how Stadium Arcadium flunked and how Charlie is a lolarious song for our favourite Chief Swan and to the point....


What's your favourite RHCP song?

What song reminds you most of a fic?

Best Album they ever made? *cough* Californication*


I'm also partial to the White Stripes. Lettuce discuss.



And because I'm the resident Scrubs lover (yeah, I even have an Avvie so SHAME Kristen) hit me up with a scrubs quote.


Janitor: You Look Unhappy, i like That


JD: Dr.Cox..

Dr.Cox:Newbie, if the next two words out of your mouth aren't 'See ya' then the third word will be 'Oh my god. My crotch. You've punched me in my crotch.'.
JD: See Ya!



PS, I'm sorry I can't litter this post with picture p0rn, my internet is being a toad.



bitchface ranger edit: i'll allow it, but please ask for permission next time.  i would have approved it, js

also, everyone stop with the obnoxious font sizes and colors.  pick one and stick to it.  hurts my eyes.  there's only enough room in this forest for one obnoxious person, and that's me.  be lucky i don't all caps you people, too


PS to wtvoc- Ooooh I got moderated. Soz, next time I'll tweet you in case I make a non-Twilight post... :)

My dear friend needs votes to get his song to the top of... some thing. IDK, but he's great, so do this.

Just click this link and then click DOWNLOAD under the song "The Easy Way (Jealous Boy)" by Bob Gentry

My friend BOB needs 6 more downloads (downloads = votes for his song). Come on Campers. Why are you ignoring this? It's FREE MUSIC!

and uhhh, in other music related new that has more to do with the Twi-verse, I saw this guy perform and it was good:


Wanna lick?

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 11:51 AM

Twilight: New Moon fans who want a true taste of Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattison, the Sweet Avenue Bakery in Rutherford, N.J., has just the remedy – chocolate or vanilla cake cupcakes with edible likenesses of your favorite stars atop the vanilla bean frosting.

The $4 treats have been on sale since last month, reports Newark's Star-Ledger, which says the shop specializes in gluten-free and vegan cupcakes without eggs or dairy products.

As for the face-off between Team Edward and Team Jacob, final results are not in. But just to mix things up, the bakery is also offering Team Emmett, Jasper or Carlisle cupcakes – minimum order, a dozen.



Bella, why can't you kick more ass?

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 11:15 AM

So, I know most of us aren't exactly in love with Bella. She's... mousy and Mary Sueish, etc. etc.. Some people like that she's a plain jane- it makes her more relatable. I get that. But even if you like her, you can see how she isn't the most compelling heroine.  

Still, part of me rages that this is just another example of how women characters are never written as well as the guys. In shows, I'm usually in love with half the guys, and I think most of the girls are stupid or bitches (but maybe this is just catty hatery on my part). And like, I was reading the 100 best Characters in Fiction since 1900, and lo and behold, the women are all hos a tiny minority. Of course, we weren't exactly enlightened on women's rights in 1913, but you catch my drift.

What do you think? Are women written as well as guys? If not, why do you think that is?

Or do you think that well-written women just aren't as popular as well-written guys? That we'd sooner watch guys exchanging quips than see women bantering?

And also, post pictures of kickass female heroines from TV, books, movies. To make me feel better about the fairer sex.

OK, so I am here to talk about fandoms.

I may or may not have mentioned that I am stepping into the world of a new one on twitter today, and let's just say you ADF girls are rough (in a good way of course).

We all know that WTVOC has gone into the land of DB and Bones, and many of you are already a part of the Harry Potter fandom.

What I want to know is what OTHER fandoms have you been a part of, past or present? Have you joined communities for those fandoms like you have for Twilight, or just read the fanfiction? What was different about those rather than Twilight? Less/more drama maybe? The writing quality in comparison to Twi?

Share your experience outside the Twilight Fandom!



i haven't shared any porn for a while. i apologize



Please Help...

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 10:48 AM

I feel kinda stupid having to ask for help with this, but when it comes to the computer I'm not the greatest! I have been sitting here for hours trying to figure out how to do my Avatar.  I found the picture I want to use, saved it then hit the browse button.  The file name came up in the empty space but no picture :( If someone knows how to do it could you please help?!

~please don't laugh lol~


Brush with Twilight.

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 10:40 AM

Ages and ages ago, before this whole thing blew up HUGE i emailed the SM and asked her a question about Twilight-

In the book, Bella's car fishtails and then Charlie had put chains on her tires.  I wondered if it was in fact Edward who put the chains on the tires, it wasn't.  It was Charlie and I know this because she actually wrote back to me and told me this. 

So.  My question for all of you:  Have you had any brushes with anything Twilight related?

Meet SM at a book signing?  See Robert Pattinson passed out in a gutter?  Have a friend who has a cousin who has a nephew whose best friend met Jackson Rathbone?

Tell me any and all of your brushes with anything Twilight related, so i can gasp and lament about how jealous i am.



Thursday December 3, 2009 at 10:28 AM

like, whoa.

the nom nom nominations for the eddies/bellies are HUGE this go-round, and it's been, what.  three days?

you have until december 10th to nominate your favorite fics.  keep 'em coming!  think of it this way: i have to wade through and make sure the fics are even eligible, so you can at the very least annoy me with nominations.  i've got quite a lot of homework this weekend.

questions?  comments?  wha'dja nominate?



Great article on Peter Facinelli

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 10:22 AM


The Los Angeles Times online has a fairly short but really sweet article on Peter Facinelli.,0,3994427.story

I swear I love this guy more every time he talks.



Alex Day reads Twilight

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Some of you Doctor Who fans may know Alex Day (nerimon) from youtube. He's in a band called Chameleon Circuit and he sings songs about the show.

ANYWAY, he's just a really hilarious guy and I'm addicted to his video blogs and found that he's started posting about Twilight. He basically bought the book out of curiosity for it popularity and is going to read it and make comments about it in his videos, chapter by chapter. For the most part he's making fun of it but it's just too funny and his comments are completely justified. LOL It's completely entertaining and you should really watch them!! So far he's done up to chapter 4.



Chapter 1: 


Chapter 2:


Chapter 3+4: 


So, What the heck is yer excuse...

Thursday December 3, 2009 at 12:03 AM

...for being on the computer so much? Or, are you fairly open with your fanfiction obsession? As for me.. I'm uber hush hush about it. And would actually rather have friends think I'm a porn addict than a FF reader.

I've been dodging the FanFic bullet for 12 years. *sigh* Yeaaah.

 Back in the day, my excuse was "homework", it has since advanced to Comp rewrites and web modding (neither of which I do all that much of). I tell ya.. cell phone web browsers sure do make reading FF a very inconspicuous endeavor. Now I can ignore whole groups of people while I 'check my email', yet seem social at the same time.. since I'm out and about in public.

Or! If you're completely honest with the Twilight Fan Fic, thing.. what was your 'coming out' like? Did you invite the parents, prepare a meal and blurt it out after 4 glasses of wine? 

tell me, tell me.




Wednesday December 2, 2009 at 9:58 PM

Hey campers.

so my day today sucked. I mean, it blew major chunks. I wanted to cry but I didnt even know why. 14 hours and the only worth while thing to happen was me finding a kitchenaid stand mixer for only seventy bucks on sale and then the closing song on Glee.

Any way, I really need to laugh and smile. so got any rec for something funny? Really funny. It doesnt even matter if its cannon or human or what ever. though i would prefer twilight, at this point just any subject would be fine. thnx.

~I know i ask for recs alot but thats the only way i find good stories. apparently when i search, i only find crap.~


Twilight Grammy Nominations

Wednesday December 2, 2009 at 9:21 PM

 The nominees for the 52nd Annual Grammys came out tonight and the Twilight soundtrack was nominated for "Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media" Category.

Decode by Paramore was nominated in the "Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media" Category.


If only the campers at ADF would've been able to pick the music. Then we would have swept the awards categories.


The Grammy awards ceremony will be held January 31st, 2010 at 8 PM ET/PT on CBS.


What is your favorite song to come from Twilight or New Moon? Was it because of the song itself or it's placement in the movie??


dreaming of twilight

Wednesday December 2, 2009 at 8:16 PM

most of us spend an inordinate amount of time on twilight related activities, and i'm curious how much this has seeped into our subconsciousnesses (dude, that word looks too long...)

have you had dreams that featured some aspect of twilight, and if so, what were they of?

the most famous twilight dream, obvsly, was SM's dream where a sparkly vampire confessed to his girlfriend that he really REALLY wanted to eat her.

from the dreams i can remember, i've dreamt about comforting rob before the new moon premier as he had a panic attack.  last night, rob and i chatted in a swimming pool.  to my dismay, we only ever talk, which seriously disappoints me since i've read quite enough fanfic to provide inspiration.

disclaimer: i swear i'm not poaching "to sleep or not to sleep" below...i wrote this before i noticed it!
