"Bella–"

"Please, Edward—don't. I gave you a huge part of me. I'm not asking for it back. I'm just asking you to let me keep what's left."

"Will you ever think of me?" he asked.

I nodded. "Of course I will."

"I'm so sorry that I left you. I'm sorry that I broke you."

"I'm better for it, Edward."

Everything You Are – venis-envy

"It's you," I said to Edward. He looked startled by my statement, but I shushed him quickly and smiled. "Like you said, Edward. We'll always be tied to each other. When you shine, and you will, I'll shine, too. I'm not saying that I'll always be okay with that. I'm sure that I'll be pissed off on occasion for pretty much the rest of my life. But I can be happy for you and your success now."

As I spoke the words, I realized that there was so much truth in them. When I boarded the plane to New York, I had felt that I was along for Edward's journey toward fame and fortune, riding his coattails while spitting envy and greed. The reality of the situation, though, was that he had been along for my journey.

It wasn't the end of the world, after all.

Summary

To see all entries in the “Love Lost” Contest, please visit the author profile: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2458839/Love_Lost_Contest

Your story must be rated accordingly, accounting for all content. All ratings are accepted and will be judged equally.

All pairings are acceptable, so long as they are tastefully presented. No pedophilia (except as related to centuries old vampires paired with seventeen year old girls), no incest (except as related to vampires that must pretend to be brother and sister), and no bestiality (except as related to werewolves paired with humans, so long as the werewolf is in human form.)

Please keep dark themes and images to a minimum. We do want stories of heartbreak, but we must see the hope and growth that results. You may allude to rape, self-harm, and suicide, but please do not give graphic descriptions. You must include a warning for any sensitive material, however brief it may be.

Collaborations are acceptable, but please no more than two entries by any one person. If you choose to enter a collaborative story, you may also enter one other story on your own. Those collaborations that present a combined pen name will need to provide individual pen names, as well.

All entries must be 2,000 to 10,000 words in length. Please try to adhere to the word limits. Any stories that do not fall within the acceptable limits may be disqualified. The hosts will validate each story before posting, and the word count will be checked.

No previously posted stories will be accepted. You may post your story to your profile and/or expand your one-shot after the contest has concluded. Stories may not be posted to other fanfiction sites, blogs, or forums until after a winner has been chosen.

Your work should be edited and polished before submission. You are encouraged to use a beta, if necessary. Any entries with multiple grammar errors, misspellings, typos, or punctuation problems will be disqualified. If you do not have a beta, you can contact Project Team Beta for help. You will have one chance to correct mistakes and re-submit.

Your submissions must remain anonymous. The hosts will have knowledge of each author’s story, but the public and the judges will vote without prejudice. If you attempt to share the title of your story with the public, you will be disqualified. Author Notes should be limited to citing references and quotes. Any other information that may identify the author will be removed.

Prizes:

All winners will be announced on The Lazy Yet Discerning Ficster, as well as contest blog. There will be a first, second, and third place for the public voting section of the contest, and the same for the judging panel. Each host may choose a story to feature, but that is not guaranteed.

First place winners will receive bragging rights, award banners, banners for the story of their choice, and a review from each judge (and maybe a host or two.)

Second and third place winners will receive an award banner.

Any host picks will also receive an award banner.

In addition to these prizes, your host WriteOnTime has agreed to hold a brainstorming session with the Judges’ Choice winner. The winner may use this session to discuss expanding his or her one-shot or to seek help with another story. Other judges have expressed interest in joining the session, so the winner may receive invaluable information from some of the best writers in the fandom.
