Author's Note: Updated 7.30

Bet you guys didn't think you'd hear from me for another month at least. -giggles-Well, I don't blame you. But guess what? I got a new chapter up WITHIN A WEEK! -dances in circles- I'm so proud of myself!

Anyway, now I'm done being hyper.This may actually be my shortest chapter yet. It answers the questions people have been asking me: what does Edward feel like about all this? How does Jacob feel about this? Now, now, it's not ALL there (gotta save some for the next installment -wink-), but some of it, at least. And of course, our favorite goddesses guest star in this installment...with a bit of a shocker near the end.

Lol, is anyone else as excited as I am?

By the way, if anyone actually READS these author notes (which I strongly suspect they don't), I'm still looking for a beta. Please please please PM me if you're interested.

Well, that's enough rambling. On with the show!

The enthusiastic Ellie

-deep sigh- The time has come to admit that I cannot do it alone. For anyone interested in becoming a beta for both this story's edits and the one I'm currently working on, please PM me. I'm looking for two of them, so please, please PM me if you're looking for some beta-ing.

And, for the very important reason I'm posting: I promise not to reveal any Harry Potter spoilers. Take it from someone who studiously avoided all news networks while she was finishing the book: it's horrible to have to avoid everything and everyone to be able to read without it being ruined for you. It's truly despicable and unfair for those who enjoy this book to have it ruined for them through other people's immature behavior. People are going to jail for giving spoilers, okay? It's not right, guys, so you won't be hearing anything from me.

Ahem, anyway, here is the long awaited chapter J I thank everyone who has reviewed and pushed me over the 100 mark. You all ROCK!

The marvelous Ellie

Hey everyone! I do so love you all for reviewing! -blows kisses- New chapter's up :) and I couldn't be happier. This one mostly deals with Charlie's viewpoint on everything and (for all of you knowing readers who guessed correctly -winks at Sara-) a bit about the wolves. Tee-hee, I'm excited, aren't you?

The next chapter should be up by the end of the week, hopefully if my computer doesn't freak out like it did the last time it rained. Sheesh, computers. I've said it once, I'll say it again: they're just complicated enough so that we can't challenge their authority. Lol, anyway, let me stop babbling and let you get on to it. Read and review!

Author's Note: Update 3.16

I'm a bit ashamed to note that a little less than 3 months has passed since I last updated. -grimaces- Edits on Bella and the Beast are taking longer than I expected. Sara, also known as Daimios, was kind enough to sympathize with me. Seriously guys, it's the little details that kill you. It's easiest to map out a storyline and decide what will happen when, but without details, the story is just an outline, really.

And let me tell you, I'm about ready to take a hammer to these details. -growls-

On a lighter note, it's SPRING BREAK, BABY! You know what that means: cute bikinis, cuter guys, jet-skis, outlet malls, the works! I'M SO EXCITED!

Well, ahem, I'll bore you no longer with my aspirations for the upcoming week (I swear I'm finally going to beat Tuck at the sandcastle contest...). By the way, for anyone curious about the bit at the end involving Alice, I've always been intrigued by how anyone could send their relative to an asylum. It's just horrible that she can't remember anything :( So I apologize if that particular detail isn't canon. But hey, neither is this entire fanfiction, right? That part was probably the hardest to write, and although I'm convinced it could be better, here it is.

Later guys! Have fun over Spring Break! I'll try to get the next chapter up soon!

Hello everyone! I'd just like to thank everyone who left reviews for me, including several of the threats I got (lol, I know it was out of love, guys); I love you all so much! I hope you'll be happy to know that I'm successfully out of rehab and have been deemed healthy! dances in circles This means I can come back and write again! Gosh, you don't know how HAPPY that makes me!

I'd especially love to thank Sara, known on the site as Damios, for her lovely, sweet, kind review. It really brightened my day, Sara, thank you.

Well, this next chapter deals with what happened to the Cullens and what they'll do with Charlie. I hope it lives up to expectations. I promise the next update won't be so far away.

The happy and healthy,

Hospitals suck. And why do they suck, you ask? Because I've been in this hospital for close to a month.

In September, I punctured my lung. I'm not really sure why and neither are the doctors, although they're convinced it has something to do with stress. Eh, as I figure it, they're the experts so I guess they know what they're saying. But is it really fair to confine me to a lumpy matress for nigh on 30 days?

Yes, this explain's Ellie's absense from the fanfiction community. My parents have done everything they can think of to make sure I don't over-stress again, but frankly, being without my laptop has stressed me out even more. So here I am! I apologize for not reviewing and those who I did review for, I was sneaking into my sister's breifcase for her laptop.

I shortened this last chapter because it was too long. So long that I couldn't remember what had happened at the start, so I halfed it. I hope it's to everyone's liking since the story should progress pretty smoothly from here. This is kinda/sorta a "filler chapter" more or less. Anyway, here's the next installation of Bella and the BeastI apologize for the long wait, but it really couldn't be helped.

From the world of green jello and hospital gowns,

I was so excited at the responses to my first chapter so I decided to go ahead a post the next. From here on in, it might get a bit more complicated, but bear with me and feel free to ask any questions if you get confused.

Also, thanks so much to: Narnialover, cookiedoughmunchkin, Dreamcloud818, Captain Raven Roth, TooMuchLoveforEdward, NightFreak, and TwilightSnowStar for being the first to review!Thanks bunches for reviewing, guys, and enjoy the next chapter!

I've read several of Seraphyn's fanfictions and I really do love the way she organizes her author's notes so that they don't take up the room meant for the story. I know what it's like to get an update email to find that it's just an author's note, lol. This way, we avoid that sad sense of disappointment altogether. So, before you go running off to tell her, I'd just like to say that this idea is completely Seraphyn's; it doesn't belong to me at all, I'm just borrowing it.

Okey-doke! That being said, let me give you a tad bit of a summary of 'Bella and the Beast'. It's basically an AU version of Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' with all of the Twilight characters we know and love. Bella lives in Forks with Charlie, who is so completely OOC in this, I'll acknowledge. Her mother is...gone, we won't get into where. Edward has done...something that causes the Cullens to be unable to leave their mansion for nearly a century, which, as we all know, is like the ultimate punishment for vampires. All of the logistics will be explained as we go along, so just stay tuned for my updates, which'll be posted on Tuesdays, or more frequently if I get the chance. Basically, I've twisted the plot of Disney's movies added in a bunch of fun vampires like the Cullens, a silly, clumsy human name Bella Swan and voila! Let's see what happens.
