Friday August 2, 2019 at 2:59 PM

Happy Fic Dive Friday!
I just wanted y’all to know I do my best to look for stories
 with near-perfect grammar, spelling, and punctuation and a more substantial the plot the better. Cringe-inducing pet peeves are incorrectly written dialogue tags and the misuse of homonyms. The teacher in me wants to whip out a red pen and make corrections, lol, but if it becomes too much...I just can’t continue.
I also really try to support new writers.
Thank you for all your words of encouragement! I wish you happy reading

and hope you find something you can enjoy!
Let’s dive right in, shall we?

The Estuary (nursery of the sea) - new/wips

Vacation Town By: bicyclesarecool
Reeling and traumatized from the death of her father and her subsequent move across the country, Bella finds herself in a popular vacation spot in the offseason. Here, she meets Edward, a boy dealing with his own ghosts, who she can't help but feel drawn to. Their tentative relationship grows as they learn to face their fears and learn that things might not be hopeless after all.
~A very poignant story of how Bella struggles to stay afloat physically and emotionally while her mother only compounds the issues and weighs her down further by being oblivious and self-centered. But then, there’s the contractor’s son...

Cleanup In Produce By: kyla713
Faced with a challenge he'd never had to handle before, Edward is determined to move on and meets someone in unlikeliest of places.
~I’m just going to go ahead and post this so you guys can put it on alert. Brand spanking new, but’s kyla713!

Wander No More by: AgoodWITCH
History is written by the victors,
butlore is written by the fearful. The Great Battle between humans and vampires is centuries in the past, and all the Wanderers have are their stories. When Bella, a young Wanderer is chosen to be the next queen of the vampires, she must choose her mate and king and try to navigate a world so different from the stories she knew.
~Very interesting...short-ish chapters and Bella is one kick-ass and take no prisoners little ‘wanderer’. (human) AgoodWITCH has wonderfully baited the hook and will reel you in!

Analogous By: archy12
"The world is full of hopeful analogies and handsome, dubious eggs, called possibilities." (George Eliot) After Edward loses his brother, and Bella her boyfriend, can they find one of these possibilities?
~This has a bit of mystery to it. Bella is an enigma with a very vague past and Ed-man might need to slow his roll a bit. archy12 has us set up for another fantastic adventure!

The Breakers - newly completed

Theories of Bellativity by kikki7
Bella Swan is a physician assistant student trying to survive a grueling clinical year. Add Dr. Edward Cullen, a cocky, irresistible ob/gyn resident. Throw in some chocolate, sprinkle with a few of Bella's quirky theories about life, and see what happens.

~Wow! The final two chapters are up after a bit of a break! The conclusion of a very hot, sexy, yet tumultuous ride for these two! Gret job, kikki7!

Killa & Bee by ceceprincess1217
Edward "Killa" Masen isn't sure why his father wants to team up with the Italians, and he sure as hell isn't happy about the deal to combine the two most powerful families into one. Isabella 'Bee' Swanatori has dreams of her own and they damn sure have nothing to do with Edward Masen.

~I am in admiration of the writing range of ceceprincess1217 who can smoothly come from writing the proper (almost), dashing, melt-you-into-a puddle Bachelor Duke regency time to the foul-mouthed, deadly, horny-as-hell Killa and his Bee. (actually, the Duke was h-a-h too!) I will gladly read anything she writes! Thank you, lady! Waiting for what's next!

Until You by olivejuice26
At the start of her senior year in a new school, Bella is assigned a project with a partner who has a harrowing tale to tell. She soon learns that the kind boy she's working with hides a broken spirit behind a smile that convinces everyone but her. With him, she will discover how to love through adversity; with her, he will uncover a passion to live and love without bounds. AH, OOC

~Aww...this is the sweetest, most insightful, and perseverant Bella who sees past Edward's false bravado to help him on a journey towards realizing his hopes and dreams!. Thank you olivejuice26!

Buried Treasures - golden oldies

This Is Not My Life By: IsaKassees
Follow Bella as she tries to survive a madman's abduction and keep a stranger's child from succumbing to his wild fantasies, and follow Edward as he tries to stay sane searching for his daughter taken right before his eyes.
~This has got to be on the list of top epic classic fic gems of all times! IsaKassees keeps you on the edge of your seat from chapter one.

Strange Scales By: NemmaStar
Post-Eclipse. Mere weeks before her wedding, Bella disappears. With vampires, werewolves, and humans to blame, no one thinks to look to the more sinister monsters lurking just offshore. As Bella is thrown into a frightening new world, Edward and Jacob must put aside their differences to save the girl they both love. But will they be too late? FINALIST Fanatic Awards 2015! ExB HEA
~Need something really different? Nemmastar takes you on an otherworldly supernatural action-packed adventure that I promise you will not want to put down!

Sacrifices By: Enthralled
When Edward left Bella, he did so in the hopes that she would have a happy, human life. What would happen if she did just that, but it turned out that things didn't go as either of them planned? Edward & Bella AU
~Yet another magnificent fic classic. Everything is going well for Bella - just like Edward had wished for her - until everything goes terribly wrong. Enthralled has written a heart-pounding, heart-wrenching story about Bella's journey.

Thank you for all your words of encouragement! I wish you happy reading 

and hope you find something you can enjoy!

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

The Estuary (nursery of the sea) - new/wips


The Island By:Moonchild707   

A girl leaves home for the great unknown. A king readies his people for war. A plane crashes in a storm over the mid-Pacific, and a body is found on a beach, not quite alive, but not yet dead. When a girl falls from the sky in a cloud of fire and steel, she must build a new home and make her new life in this land amongst strangers, known only to her as The Island. AH, AU.

~A very engaging fantasy romance story of epic proportions with an intense good vs, evil struggle. 

Hades, a love story - Sort of By: FictionFreak95    

A story of perseverance & the lack thereof. For the downtrodden. About love & loss along with the betrayal & bitterness that ensues in its aftermath. Long story short, a story about Hades & how maybe he's not the bad guy, after all. 1/4 c Lucifer. 2 tbsp Meet Joe Black. 1 heaping swig of Twilight. misc nonsense. Liberties with Greek mythology. MA, ExB AH (sort of) blah blah blah

~Jo is back with a new story! Satan escapes the confines of hell and possesses the human body of one green-eyed club owner. Will all hell ensue...or will there be hell to pay?

The Cop and the Psychic By: gabby1017

She's a fortune teller in a traveling carnival, reading futures for her survival. He's a homicide detective trying to find a serial killer. Will he believe her when she asks for help?

~Is Bella pretending or is she for real? Some very scary and mysterious things are happening! OK, lovely have us hanging on a big cliff; updates appreciated!


Bella struggled with her weight. Her problems are enhanced by the pressures society and her family place on her. How could someone like her ever find a decent husband? Her childhood best friend might have the answer to all her problems. With a fake marriage, Bella will raise her station & Edward will gain his inheritance. Who would believe a Cullen would marry a loser? AU part 1

~OK...I have been following this and it is intriguing, but it is definitely set in some hard to figure out AU time in the future. There are modern devices, but an almost post-apocalyptic society structure and sometimes almost Puritan beliefs on a woman’s ‘place’. IBACULLEN just delivered a huge twist!. Story and author nominated for Golden Onion awards!

The Breakers - newly completed



The River God's Wife By: KinkyWings

In order to ensure the safety of her village, Isabella Swan is sent across the river to become the next wife of the cruel and powerful River God. At first, she detests her new life and despises her husband even more. Will she learn to accept her fate in time to realize the forces at play? More importantly, will she ever come to love her husband or is he truly beyond redemption?

~Full of fantasy and all kinds of mythological and supernatural goodies. I promise it will challenge every one of your emotions. Great job, KinkyWings!

Degrees of Deception By: IBACULLEN

Easy breezy Bella goes to work at The Cullen Conglomerate believing she is there due to her unfortunate circumstances. Everything went according to Edward's plan except one tiny snafu. Both have secrets they must keep. Both must lie in order to keep their relationship. Dishonesty may be what gets them killed. AH HEA. Cannon.

~Snarky sarcastic Bella is about as opposite to inflexible wealthy CEOward as you can get. She is not even remotely qualified for this why is she there? One thing for sure, she will crack you up! Also up for Golden Onion Awards!

A Stable Ever After by Iadorepugs   

NOW COMPLETE! NOT a stand alone story. Read A STABLE ROMANCE first. Edward & Bella are engaged, but that's just the start. Bella has a talent for dressage that Edward wants to develop. Lives combined & love declared, how will they handle what life throws at them?

~Such a sweet, fluffy romance centered around the care and training of horses, add a dash of drama and an abundance of citrus! Good job, Iadorepugs!

A Modern Day Fairy Tale By: tufano79

Edward Anthony Masen Cullen is a crown prince, visiting the USA for a diplomatic mission for six months. Isabella Marie Swan is commoner, a working girl, slaving over the family-owned bakery and prevent it from going bankrupt. Prince Charming does exist and Bella is about to live in A Modern Day Fairy Tale ... A/H, ExB

~This is truly a delightful rendition of how a modern day fairy tale could happen. I love tufano79’s blog with teaser updates and all the pictures! She truly puts her heart and soul into this!

Buried Treasures - golden oldies


Red Strings of Fate By: unicornhime

AH AU When Edward finally gets the chance at getting the girl, he has no idea what to do, so he turns to a message board called The Red Strings of Fate. A story told in technology.

~What a hilarious story told entirely via digital messages. The constant funnies will crack you up.

Diary of an Ugly Girl by Anton M    

Follow Bella as she grows from a bullied little girl into a sassy young woman. After all, it's not about what you're looking at, it's about what you see. An unorthodox story about best friends and their journey. Humor/Angst/Friendship/Romance.

~This is refreshingly unique and consistently hilarious with Bella’s thoughts and actions, but increasingly heart-wrenching as we realize it is mostly a coping mechanism for deep-set insecurities and a hidden pain. It not only addresses the against-the-odds journey of one remarkable young woman to search, create and develop her own identity - above and beyond what she perceives her appearance, but she also finds her voice to address other social injustices and encourage others to stand up as well. Anton M writes an absolutely magnificent story!

Stregoni Benefici By: giselle-lx

Carlisle Cullen has always been different—a frustrating son to a distant father; an enigma to the rulers of his world. But when he faces the biggest decision of his immortal life, he's forced to grapple with the moments that have shaped him most. When you've lived your whole life among killers, what kind of man do you choose to become? Pre-Twilight canon.

~This is an absolute masterpiece! It is rich and layered, a magnificent journey through Carlisle’s lonely and tortured past. I could not stop reading it! Giselle-lx is a truly gifted writer!
