Author has written 9 stories for Twilight.
I've been registered and actively reading fanfiction here on FF.Net since 2002, and that love for this past-time has spanned many fandoms and genre's. I love watching a new story unfold and witnessing an author reveal their "voice" and desired message as a story progresses. I'm GothicTemptress on all the message boards that I've ever participated on through the years. I'mand . I'm hardly on twitter, so don't be surprised if I go a month between posts over there - it moves too fast for me (I prefer the message board format much better - #oldschool). People often refer to me as GT or Becca, but my most treasured name/title is Mom. I'm a mother of 2 beautiful daughters. I've been married for almost 17 years. We live in Downtown Chicago and love the vibrant city life for ourselves and for raising our children. High-rise living is it for us, not the burbs or the white picket fence. No yard, no shoveling snow, no car or driving, no long commute...The city sidewalks are perfect for my big black Combat boots anyway. ;)
The Twilight fandom has allowed me to meet some of the most inspirational and coolest people I have ever had the blessing of knowing on the net. The Muses, The Bunker Babes, The Blue Bubble Beauties...My free time on the net has been made infinitely better by these amazing people. I also have my Jane Austen, Potter and Labyrinth fandom friends to thank for the love and support of quality friendships that have spanned nearly a decade in most cases. Their friendships have been a sanctum that has touched and continue to touch me deeply. Fanfiction and the discussion/bonding over it really brings so many people together in a positive way, and I am beyond thankful that I stumbled upon it so long ago. For all of the authors who share their stories with us...I am grateful for how much you inspire your readers. The word "appreciation" is not adequate...It's more than words can ever express.
For my Chicago friends in the Goth/Industrial scene who have discovered this account over the years, I told you fanfiction was worth while. ;) You all make my non-mommy time so much more...exciting! *wicked grin* Here's ainspired by the hours of dancing we do on our club nights! For curious readers, that channel contains hundreds of songs that inspire me to write and makes me want to move through life with an extra bounce in my step. If you're curious or looking for some Industrial/EBM, some Gothy or dark, head there my friends.

THE SUMMER OF LETHE'S DEMISE - Removed for revisions - I wish to offer thanks to all the readers that fell in love with this one chapter story short story. I never expected the overwhelmingly positive reception, with over 600 reviews for a O/S, and I hope to improve it and make it even better.
*ETA: May 3, 2013 - To all of the readers sending me messages wondering about this story, I've had an interesting couple of months with these characters. ;) I pulled the story to add two scenes (during their magical visit to Greece!) to it and to revise the errors that existed in quite a few spots - to tighten everything up and flesh it out. What was an 11,000 word one shot has turned into nearly 40,000 words, and these characters still aren't done dancing with my muse yet. ;) I'm honestly not sure what I will do with this new version yet, should I ever feel it's complete, but if you're looking for the original version and want a PDF of it but can't find it floating around the net, please send me a PM here with your email address and I'll email it to you!
The Summer of Lethe's Demise won the Award for Best One Shot in The Gem Awards! It also was voted Best Romance, Best Drama, Best Friendship/Family, and Best AU in The Single Shot Awards! Thank you to all who nominated and voted! It originally won 1st place in the Summer Lovin' Anonymous Contest in 2010.
The Summer of Lethe's Demise placed in the Top 6 of TwiFicOne's Simply the Best of 2010 - Thank you to all who nominated and voted!
Thank you to IndiFicPimp for naming The Summer of Lethe's Demise as their!
I'm truly flattered that readers have requested to translate my stories into other Languages. Please contact me via PM if you wish to translate so that I can credit your hard work in my profile. As long as you give me credit as the original source, I will not only encourage your hard work in writing the translation, but I'll also post links here and recommend you to other authors who may be looking to sharing their work internationally. I'm just honored that a translator feels that my work is worthy enough to expose to a wider audience, and so I'm grateful for those requests, and will reciprocate.
