Ok, I loved this! When I started to read theladyingrey42’s story “In the Twilight of My Life”, which starts out with Bella going into a nursing home, I was fully expecting a young Edward to show up. The idea broke my heart a little, because how sad would it be for a suicidal vamp to find the love of his life when she’s nearing the end of hers. I always figured that a story like that would be a hideously angsty story that would have me in tears the whole time and it would be forced to have an ending filled with death and regret. If you’ve read her story, you’ll know that it’s not a young Edward, but an old one, who shows up (and it’s a fantastic story!). But I could never get the idea out of my head of how a young Edward would deal with an old Bella.
I just never knew you’d written a version like this. I’m so impressed with how you wrote this. You managed to walk the line between sad and filled with regret and just funny as hell. You’re Bella is a spit fire, but still Bella. Her interaction with the other Cullens was so fun to read. And even though Edward and Bella don’t get a conventional HEA, I’m still happy with how you wrapped them up.
I’m so glad a stumbled onto your story, thanks so much for sharing with us!

This story was incredibly funny and an interesting twist on canon. Very different. I loved it!

Very original! I don't really see the Bella we met at the beginning of Twilight growing into this woman decades hence, or Edward behaving this way, bringing random women home to mess with the family, but it's still an interesting story.

Wow, this had me laughing one minute ("She watches as Jasper turns his broccoli on end, creating a tree line at the edge of his plate") and then crying by the end. You are such a brilliant writer.

Totally hilarious and totally sad. A great story.
| SemperSomnium chapter 1 . 8/8/2010
This is very unique; very lovely and happy, even though it's terribly sad. :) I love what an old hag Bella has become. XD

Wow! I loved it! I laughed my butt off in the beginning and then I ended up crying in the end for Edwards loss and Bella's happy life lost... Great work.

Oh man, it gets kind of sad towards the end. This is really quite a good story. It's a very nice alternative of would could have been. Quite ironic also.

Wooh, it's a strange story!
But I liked it.
| As Clumsy As Me chapter 1 . 7/25/2010
That was wonderful
It had me laughing and crying at the same time. The ending was really heartbreaking. I have tears welling up in my eyes.
. I love that your imagination conjoured this up because this is definitely not a normal plot. I'm glad you had the guts to write such a sad ending.
All in all, lovely story

I loved it. Though it makes me want to cry. It's heartbreaking. Is there an alternate ending where somehow Edward came back, met Bella when younger etc.
Did B ever love Mike? Why does she still call herself Mrs Newton? And she wanted to go to the cemetary..? Who for? She sometimes seems sad about Mike, why?
Does E and B fall in love? Does E commit suicide after she dies or does he turn her? When B makes comment about that being good at another time, is she crushing on him at all? And is there something more to her words, also when she says about waiting for the extraordinary or something like that but never getting it and who was she to be disappointed etc.? In some otherworldly way is she referring to Edward? Like fate or destinty wanted them together.
It's a very tragic ending and I almost wish I didn't read it as its going to be stuck with me for a long time and I'm currently very depressed that they never got that chance. And poor E, he'll probably feel guilty forever for not coming backs sooner. And if B was the girl in both A's visions, how come E says years later A had the same one with a different girl? And how come it changed?
