I am in LOVE with this edward. he may be a prick but it is incredibly sexy. i'm a total fan of the protective/possessive guys and this is just doing wonders.
I love the third person as well and think it flows quite nicely.
I'm extremely extremely extremely excited to see what happens and hope you update soon again!
love it :)

Okay so I am TOTALLY NOT a fan of 3rd person. I have tried and failed many times before to read any story this way and always end up not reading it.
BUT...this one did it for me. I love it! It really flows and I didn't stop reading until there was no more to read.
Edward seriously posessive and demanding. And the mind reading to take over Bella. Wow. He's creepy HOT. LOL ( if there is such a thing)!

Wow, this is really a dark Edward. I am really enjoying this story. Looking forward to the next update.

just added this story- very interested in any changes edward might go through- i like this edward very much, but that swedish proverb from chapter 6 is intriguing.
thanks for this story- can't wait for more.

Damn. This Edward is so fuckhot. He's a complete asshole, but still just so damn fuckable.
I don't like how he was stringing her along when they were kids, but I'm hoping he has some damn good reasons for this, although I really can't come up with anything that would make this ok.
There is something about this possessive and seductive Edward that I like very much. Can't wait for the next update.

So your girl Bookbag pimped you out nicely on IMDB so thank her again for letting me get to read this goodness! Really, I'm loving your writing style, I have to get used to some of your terms, being your Australian right? But Hey, I love me some Aussies!
Anyhoo, This is unique and I heart it. I like that fact that finally Edward can read Bella's thoughts and be human doing it. He pains me with his posessiveness but I can't wait to dive into the real cause and what fuels him. Bella is strong in my opinion, she is fighting him but if I were in the same position I might cave too.
Your Edward is hot, you can't beat that.
GO WRITE! I will read:) I will also pimp you out. I like this that much. I write my own fic and I would love to rec you in A/N's if you let me, so please let me know if that is ok.

just started this and very intrigued...
| SpringHale chapter 7 . 7/1/2009
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!
| obssd-reader chapter 7 . 7/1/2009
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! :)
| silverfaire chapter 7 . 7/1/2009
This is a fantastic story ... but by gosh, Edward better have some redeeming emotional epiphany!
| Timmer chapter 7 . 7/1/2009
“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!
| Timmer chapter 3 . 7/1/2009
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 !
