just started this and very intrigued...

Your story is totally compelling. I particularly enjoyed this last chapter with Rosalie and Emmett in the mix. And your Edward likes LZeppelin. What more can I say!
He really is one of the hottest Edwards! No contest. Please keep writing!

O, just found this. So original. Love it! I just have to know if Edward can only hear Bella though? He does seem a little psychotic though...sorry...
Can't wait for more! :)

This is a fantastic story ... but by gosh, Edward better have some redeeming emotional epiphany!

“Give her back,” he said in a clipped, cross voice". Yeah, he's definitely fucked up !
“Ugh, dude, you have a boner. Did we just interrupt something?”
What can I say? Pregnant chicks do it for me. Come here, gorgeous.”
“What’s up, brother?” Emmett rubbed his hands by the fire, shrugging off his enormous lumberjack coat. “Other than the obvious, I mean.” LOL!
"What the fuck is rice flour?".LOL!
Loved:"She was like your imaginary friend, but she actually existed".
"The only thing I want to know, is like, how do you do it? Can you hear me? I’ve never been sure.” He looked at Edward directly. “What am I thinking?” Yes, that's what I want to know too-can he hear everybody?
Loved:"He could not bear the sound of a ticking clock. It sounded like wasted time".
"Have you ever thought that maybe Edward only calls you when he’s drunk because it’s the only time he has the confidence?” HHm interesting.
"Blow a gym-teacher’s whistle to deafen him?”LOL!
| Timmer chapter 6 . 7/1/2009
Yes I think he's a real prick but I'm very interested to see how you will make him evolve beyond that !Perhaps he will change after Esme dies? I'm also wondering how he actually let her leave all these years ago given that he was so possessive.
Loved:"She sat, wrapped up in herself, breathing the dust and memories under the stairs".
Really like the description of when they were in high school- it showed he loved her but why was he unfaithful to her?
"...hoped fervently she still didn’t look like Porno Bella" LOL!
"..than a weird editorial of seven foot women wearing fucked up dresses made of picnic rugs.”LOL!
| Timmer chapter 5 . 7/1/2009
God, all that therapy for nothing! Poor Bella !
"All of her fantasies about seeing Edward again had not gone this way". Loved all of those fantasies of hers!
Loved: "Mind fucker, she thought, rage bubbling up in her throat. She would have that chiseled on his tombstone. Edward Cullen, here lies a beloved son, brother and evil mind fucker. She wondered if all of those words would fit on his tombstone. If they refused to do it, she’d chisel them herself with her bare hands. She allowed herself a small image of herself drinking a beer whilst seated cross legged on his grave, exhausted from chiseling. The picture was immensely gratifying".
Good on her for slapping him !
"the Edwardians" LOL!
“Cockblocked by my own father…” Edward muttered in disbelief". LMAO !
| Timmer chapter 4 . 7/1/2009
I kind of felt for him in this chapter:"He spoke, his voice soft now. “She’s been worried, Bella. Emmett has Rosalie. But I won’t have anyone.” But I still think he's very manipulative !
LOL at your A/N!

Liked the Mercury pony/Edward comparison :"Mercury’s benevolent, long lashed expression often duped Bella into attempting to stroke him, which usually ended in a painful nip and a torn sweater, but one time in twenty, he would rub her shoulder gently and affectionately with his muzzle. Mercury never tired of this, and his dark, liquid brown eyes lured her in, time and time again".
"Bella had discussed with Angela that she only remembered the bad times with Edward, and explained that for every bad memory, she had at least two good ones. It was just harder to remember the good times". I hope you elaborate on this further on in your story !
Gah he had sex with Alice on her bed?Bad boy Edward, very bad !
Loved:"...the explosive sound of his voice causing a flock of doves to take flight from a nearby tree, tiny white flashes against the oppressive thunderclouds".
You know I really don't like what "Heathcliffward" is doing and has done to Bella but for some reason I'm strangely fascinated by him aswell and would love to know what he's thinking !
| Timmer chapter 2 . 7/1/2009
Your use of the third person for this story really works well !Loved the "Cullen dimension" and Charlie's post Rene way that Edward can hear her thoughts in this story is a very interesting perspective for an AH story.
| Timmer chapter 1 . 7/1/2009
Mallmouse pimped out this story to me (and to everyone else it seems!LOL!Gotta love her). And I read it very late last night but I have to come back and leave you some love because a) the story is a gem and b) I hear you're a fellow Aussie :)
Loved:"stared at the purple-smudge clouds hovering over Forks like bruises". Great imagery !

I was reading some threads on IMDB when I found that a lot of people were recommending your fic, so I decided to check it out. I am definitely glad I did. It's so different and completely addictive. I totally love to hate Creepward and all his creepiness. I've read Wuthering Heights many times and I love this idea for a story. Can't wait for the update!
| ja6108 chapter 7 . 6/30/2009
I'm just now caught up. I really love this story. It's great that Edward can hear Bella's thoughts, especially when he's talking about listening to them while he's fooling around with her! Looking forward to more updates!

Is it pathetic to be hooked after a four paragraph prologue? Powerful beginning. :)

wow. just wow. I am a Wide Awake fan who read about your story while hitting refresh for the millionth time over on Angstgoddess' livejournal page. This is such a great story. Your Edward is hot. Even though I want to smother him a little. Can't wait to read more. Thanks for writing.
