When the world around us is sad, it can be difficult to see the good things…but it only takes a moment in this fandom to find so many people we’re grateful for!
We’re thankful for all the fandom authors, the betas, the pre-readers, the banner makers, the bloggers, the pimpers…and all of you, our fellow readers – you all make this fandom a special and joyful sanctuary.
Remember to share the love! To start us off here is the lovely jess2002…
Being able to be a part of Charlie’s Voice meant a lot to me. Autism is something that hits home for myself and my family.
I love working with Kasi and Nikki -aka WeeKittyAndTAT– so I am biased when I say this is the best story ever. There is a lot that goes on within this story. I think you feel every emotion that a human can feel.
I felt that this Edward and Bella were different from others out there. First of all, Bella is the doctor. Secondly, I feel they were both teaching each other of life.
Edward goes through what any first time parent goes through when leaving your child for the first time. To me that shows the reality of life. I love the humor that goes on with in this story, again it’s realistic.
I liked the way Bella and Edward get together in this fic, it’s like it just happens, which is something you don’t see often in the fanfic world.
In my honest opinion, you don’t know how you would react, or what you would say or do, until you walked every step in a parents shoes, who has an autistic child. I thought they did very well in the aspect of not making a mockery of such a situation. You can tell there was research done so give justice to such a disability.
Summary: Contribution to the fandom 4 Autism. Edward Cullen moves home after the mother of his son leaves them. Meeting Dr. Swan is a bit of a shock, because she’s not who he was expecting. Edward learns from the new doctor and she enlists his help in starting an informational blog. Charlie’s Voice and little Charlie himself bring these two closer than either of them bargained for. Rated: M ~ Romance/Drama ~ Bella/Edward ~ One Shot ~ Complete
Here at the International House of FanFic we’re starting to get into the festive spirit…office parties and wish lists getting us in the mood…and then CaraNo dropped this little gem into our inboxes!
Baby, It’s Cold Outside had us thinking about our long lost crushes, and wondering if we’d grab the opportunity to see them years later, like Bella does, mask firmly in place. As always, Cara turns up the heat and has us fantasising about what could have been…*fans self*
It’s possible (fingers crossed) that it will be expanded, but right now it’s a quick treat to warm you up faster than a glass of mulled wine!
Summary: They’d known each other once. He’d been her English teacher in high school, and the husband of her aunt. Eight years later, Bella just wants to make sure he’s happy, and so she crashes the Christmas party she knows he attends in Seattle every year. She really should go, but…baby, it’s cold outside. Rated: M ~ Romance – Bella/Edward ~ One Shot ~ Complete
Every now and again a fic comes along to tease and puzzle, and completely draws in the reader – Square One is definitely in that category!
Postapocalypticdepository is weaving a beautifully written web, and she’s trapping not only Edward and Bella, but us, too!
After conventional medication fails her, Bella accepts a radical and unusual treatment plan *whatever you’re thinking, it’s better than that*. Struggling with her life, her choices and trying to accept this unusual path makes for an intriguing read!
We’re gripped and can’t wait to see quite what happens next in this atmospheric tantaliser!
Summary: Bella Swan knows success comes at a price and doesn’t ensure happiness. She also realizes when becoming the best, she also unleashes her worst. Knowing how lonely it is at the top she’s willing to try anything, keeping her from rock bottom, even if it’s stranger. Rated: M ~ Romance/Drama ~ Bella/Edward ~ Work in Progress
Love is Easy, but Life is Complicated has simply captured our hearts. Two women, Bella and Alice, commit to helping their friend, Rosalie, raise her twins after she conceived in the worst of circumstances.
Loyal, kind and loving, the three friends take the growing twins, Alec and Alicia for a day in the country, where the swoon-worthy Edward is ready to step in to lend a helping hand. Accepting that her friends need to move on, Rosalie encourages them to start dating again.
So far, it’s a feel good fic, but judging by the title and a tense prologue, things may start to go awry… 2brown-eyes is always a safe pair of hands, so we’re trusting her!
Summary: Bella’s life had been put on hold while she helped her friend raise her twins. However, a chance encounter at an apple orchard changes everything when she meets the handsome new music teacher in town. The falling in love is easy; the rest is complicated. Rated: M ~ Romance /Drama ~ Bella/Edward ~ Work in Progress
Have you ever stretched the truth ever so slightly? You know, maybe not confessed that you’re using your degree to catalogue porn rather than books? No? Luckily Spanglemaker9 has friends that do just that – and inspired a rather marvellous one shot!
You may think you have already figured out just what The Librarian is about, but you’d be wrong! Always expect the unexpected!
Filled with humor, when Bella meets her fantasy man it really is classic Spanglemaker at her finest, with some Ohnooooo moments and lots of Ohyessssssss moments too! *winks*
If this delight slipped by you when it was published, this is a reminder to grab some ‘me time’ and enjoy!
It’s easy to overlook a few fandom treasures because there are so many huge classics to choose from, but there really are many, many gems worthy of a re-read.
Sometimes we all need a fic that hugs us, snuggles, warms our hearts and makes us sigh in contentment. So when this FicSister was flipping through a gazillion older fics to soothe a challenging day, A Soft Place to Land really hit the spot!
Author, btwnthestacks gifted us a beautiful tale of a father’s love – Daddyward at his yummiest – doing the absolute best for his daughter…and then finding love when it’s least expected. A kind, thoughtful, relateable Bella (and her wonderful dogs!) makes the fic even better.
A story of hope and healing; it’s such a satisfying and uplifting fic, it’s one to enjoy whenever you need to remember the good things in life!
Summary: Single father Edward Cullen and his daughter are looking for a soft place to land. In an attempt to help her, he turns to a program at the local library. While two furry friends help his child find her confidence, their owner will mend his broken heart. Rated: M ~ Romance & Hurt/Comfort ~ Edward/Bella ~ Complete
