Author has written 24 stories for Twilight.
Hello and Welcome to my little corner of FFN
Beneath the Surface
EternallyAddicted and I are happy to have completed Beneath the Surface.
Summary: One summer, an internship in Africa, bloodlust, sharp teeth, and a boatload of fear are all that stand in the way of Bella Cullen landing a job at the Atlanta Aquarium - As long as she doesn't count cocky shark expert Edward Masen on her list.
EA has so kindly setup a wonderful blog for the story - We have photos, Bella's application and essay for the internship, and we'll have blogs from the characters themselves as the story progresses. Be sure to sign up at the site to receive email alerts for updates and chapter postings. We'll be posting the story here on FFN and at Writer's Coffee Shop.

Runner Up - The Fairytale Continues
To Every Reader who has ever nominated or voted for my stories, THANK YOU! It means the world to me that you all love these stories so much. You guys rock!
Velvet Blood Roses has written a darker version of what happens after New Moon and her Edward and Bella are anything but pushovers. She was kind enough to let me add to and edit both of her stories for her and they are wonderful!
The first story is called Primal Desires and here is the link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4321534/1/Primal_Desires
The second story is called Masquerades and its link is: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4732024/1/
Pictures corresponding to both stories are posted on my website under Fun With Photos, which you can reach by clicking here.
And finally, here is the link to VBR's profile page. http://www.fanfiction.net/velvetbloodroses
We hope you all give both stories a chance. We're sure you'll enjoy them!
Constructive Criticism versus Just Plain Rudeness
Not every person who views the stories on this site will like every story. That's a given. We all have different tastes, different ideals, different morals - Twilight is often our one commonality.
Constructive Criticism is always welcome, and can often be very helpful to an author. The "constructive" part means that your review or PM talks about an error in grammar, punctuation, or in regards to a certain aspect of the story. Maybe the author put a city in the wrong state. Or maybe a hotel picked is not as nice as the website said it was. A constructive review is factual, concise, polite, and seeks to inform and help, not to trash an author or his/her story.
Now those reviews and PMs that accuse an author of being a horrible person, writer, etc. - those are Just Plain Rudeness. You are not only belittling a person for attempting to provide a story worth reading, you are belittling your own self. If all you do is curse an author or ridicule them in your review, you are showing how immature you are.
Yes, I'm on a soap box about this. And yes, I do think I have the right to say something about it. It's been getting more rampant and should stop. Many new authors, and some old favorites, are getting discouraged and that's just wrong. If you can't constructively criticize, stop reading the story and do not review it. These stories are a privilege, not a right. You are not forced to read them, nor are you forced to reply. Remember, it is the discretion of every author on this site what does and does not go into their story - and the same applies to you if you are writing on this site.
Before you hit that send button, take a moment to read your review. Is it constructive? Is it clear? Would you want someone to send it to you? Just a little forethought and discretion is all that's needed. Thank you.
