An excellent chapter - it gave me goose bumps!

This is one of my favorite scenes, and I hoped one day you'd do an EPOV for it. It more than lived up to my expectations-thanks!

Thanks for this wonderful glimpse into the mind of Edward. He is such a complicated man, and sometimes he really is not at prim and proper as he would want us to believe, is he?

This was absolutely Brilliant!
I was just re-reading "Spontaneous Combustion"(AGAIN!) as I had just read that bit in "Eclipse", and then stumbled on "Seduction".
I picked on the typo in "Eclipse" as well, about coveting. I always change the word to can't in my head when I read it.
Can't wait to see what you write next.

One word: Wonderful. Okay, two words. Wondeful and emotional. Well done. I liked the last little part you added - where she says "I love you, too". It makes me feel so bad for Edward, though, that Bella gave him such a hard time about marraige. He's full of so much self doubt as it is...
again, well done.

Oh Blondie, thank you! I got home from work, totally wrecked after 12hour shift, I was so happy when I saw Seduction! Forgot I was tired, had to read it straight away! Truly amazing, as always.
"And yes, I did want to do that part…with my teeth…one button at a time…" ah, Catholic School Girl Edward, yeah right! :-)

One of the most wonderful adaptations from the book ever and I love the fact that it's Edward's POV! Makes the original story even more complete.
| CatMasters chapter 1 . 5/21/2009
good catch on the coveting quote. I have always read it as you can't covet too.
thanks for the great one shot!

Nice characterisations! Liked hearing edward's side of the story.

No one... NO ONE... does Edwards POV like you. It was pure goodness wrapped with a touch of awesome...JA was very lucky to win your writing skills and very generous to share with us.

This is one of my favorites scenes in the entire Saga and you've totally captured the absurdity that I love in it. They're desperately in love and committed to each forever, but she hurts him by refusing marriage, and he hurts her by refusing sex.
It's devastating how horrible Bella is to Edward, yet she has no idea that she's hurting his feelings, mostly because he never tells her. I could cry at, "The ease with which she discarded my sacrifice gave me a full measure of the rejection she’d felt earlier."
Bella also clearly never internalized the fact that Edward comes from a different time with different morality, as you express with "But as white would stand out on a field of black, so would the stain of indiscretion scream out on her pure, unblemished soul." Yet Bella has no idea.
I love the thought of Edward's possessiveness, a clear vampire trait, and his desire, also hidden from Bella, to be the one to turn her. Yet marriage was even more important. "Even though the thought of Carlisle’s lips on Bella’s throat drove me to near insanity, I wouldn’t back down." Perfect.
And I couldn't end this review without highlighting the line, "I felt like I was channeling Carlisle." 21st century Edward slipped in among his 1918 sensibilities.

As usual, you've outdone yourself. I LOVE this and I am so thrilled that you were commissioned to write this story. And I'm very grateful that you were allowed to share it with us all.
In my opinion, NOBODY can do Edward's POV as well as you do. You just seem to capture him so well. And some of the things you come up with - well, you put SM to shame, you really do. There is so much I loved about this story that I'll never be able to remember it all (or my favorite quotes, of which there are too many to re-print here). Let me just finish by saying - the bed serving as a reminder to Edward? Brilliant. His "possessive" desire to have no other vampire bite her? Love that :-) Her disregard of his feelings and sacrifice? So sad, really :( His elation at her acceptance of his proposal? Perfect, and even better than SM's version.
Sigh. This will be one of my favorite stories for sure, one I will return to repeatedly over and over again.

very interesting! i really enjoyed it. thanks for posting!

Once again, a beautiful interetation of Edward. I wish I could channel Edward as well as you do. I can only image the true strength of scharacter that he has to be able to keep to what he feels is right and still feel the intese draw he does to Bella. She truely is his other half. Thank you for entering the auction and writing this beautiful companion to Eclipse.
