Author has written 1 story for Twilight.

ABOUT ME: I'm a freakishly pale agnostic with an ironic affinity for astrology. I like Steinbeck and Bronte and moody, creepy critiques on society (I am SUCH a scorpio). I take obscene amounts of pictures, have an addiction to vintage eBay shopping, and would like to be reincarnated as a high-fashion model. My biggest fear is being trapped, in any situation, namely being stuck in small-town America. That's me in a nutshell.

This whole fanfic is kind of weird for me--I'm not actually a big fan of the Twilight Saga, and no one that knows me is aware I write or read this stuff. For some reason, when I'm on this website, I feel like I'm reading porn or something. (I'm going to get hate mail for this, for sure.) It's definitely an interesting concept, but Stephenie Meyer over romanticizes things, and it just rubs me the wrong way. That said, I've read a few fanfics (typically out of sheer boredom), some that I prefer more than the original, and I decided to write my interpretation, with (hopefully) a little more depth than the original series. As I said, hopefully. I am very much an amateur writer, and this is the first creative writing I've done outside of English class, so positive encouragement means the world to me. As far as subject matter, I'm extremely interested in genetics and biomedical engineering, which is evident in my first story, No Sensations. If you are interested in CIPA, or any of the other concepts I touch on in my stories, please feel free to check out my inspiration.

Inspiration for No Sensations:

1. The C.I.P.A. Patient by Luciano Neves (Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQZljJm5er0, Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGI95pshg7s&feature=related)

2. House M.D. - Season 3, Episode 14 - Insensitive (http://housemdvideos.com/seasons/video.php?s=03&e=14)

3. Grey's Anatomy - Season 3, Episode 3 - Sometimes a Fantasy (http://www.cucirca.com/2007/01/18/greys-anatomy-season-3-episode-3-sometimes-a-fantasy/)

NOTE: I just found out that in Steig Larsson's novel The Girl Who Played With Fire, a character suffers from CIPA. I have not read this novel (however, I do intend to), and did not use the character as a basis for my Bella.

ANOTHER NOTE: I have also scoured medical journals and news reports, but I felt that it was important to show the formation of the character, and my Bella is largely based on the media's interpretation of CIPA, and may not always be accurate.

Kisses and Love,

Kat

No Sensations reviews
AU. Bella is not able to feel pain due to a genetic disease, yet she causes Edward to feel the greatest pain he has ever known. Twilight time period, similar story line, but with much more skepticism and character depth.
