Helping One of Our Own

As a fandom, we have shown over and over that, when there is someone or something that we care about, we will rise up and stand behind them, put our collective strength behind them. When we are needed, we stand together behind our own.The call for that collective strength is being made again.

On July 20th, Christy Pellicano -known to many as DeansHoneyBear- lost her husband, Daniel, after a brief but extremely intense battle with Cancer. During the course of Daniel's illness, Christy's heart was breaking, but her strength was unchallenged. In addition to being chief medical consultant, transportation provider and morale officer throughout, Christy never let her first and foremost role as Danny's mom falter, making sure that Danny got to spend all the time possible with his dad.

The willing sacrifices that Christy made did not come free, however. Medical bills have piled up. Every day expenses continue to be due. And Danny continues to need the things growing boys need, especially with school starting up again.

Tears of Gratitude

Let me just say that our fandom can be nothing short of amazing.  Thank you all so much for all of your support, for all of your generosity, and all of your love.  We have come together to support an amazingly strong woman and, thanks to all of you, while we cannot ever bring back what she's lost, we've reminded her that she is never alone.  We love you dearly, Christy.

Taken; Carlisle PoV Outtakes

By LoopyLou992

What would you do to keep those you loved, safe and out harms way.How far would you be willing to go to protect those you hold closest to your heart, to stop them being hurt. Would you be prepared to lay your own life in order to protect them? Could you offer yourself in their place to a madman, hellbent on revenge for an injustice he believes inflicted on him? Would you lie to your son, your flesh and blood to ensure his safety and possible freedom, all the time knowing it would come a hefty price, your own life. Would you be able to kill your own son? Or would it better to let him kill you, even though you know it would be the hardest thing he had ever done? These were the choices I was faced with when all seemed lost to me and there was no other way out of the hell we were both trapped inside. This is what happened, this is my story.

This is Carlisle’s POV of some important chapters of my story, Taken. If you want to read, you can find it on Fanfiction & TWCS.

Summer’s Hidden Melody

By Winterhorses

“So, Bella, tell me about yourself,” Anthony says as he settles into the plush leather seat of the stretch SUV we’re in.  The vehicle begins to move, but I can barely hear the engine from where we sit.

“Hmm, let’s see. I’m 22 and just graduated from Boston College.  I’m originally from Washington state, and my favorite animals are chickens.”

“Chickens?” Anthony laughs.  “That’s weird.”

“What’s weird about liking chickens?  They’re amazing.  The chicks are so cute and fuzzy, and some breeds make great pets. When they grow up, they’re insanely useful.  Besides the obvious egg thing, they eat annoying bugs and provide fertilizer for a garden.  And of course, they taste really good when barbecued.”

 His laughter gets louder.  “I love it.  Not many people talk so nonchalantly about eating their pets.  I'd hate to see what you do to things you don’t like.”

 “Well, if you don’t piss me off, you won’t have to find out,” I say with a sly grin.

 “I’ll try my best not to.”  He tries to speak solemnly but can’t keep the smile off his face.  One of his hands moves to my thigh.  “I’m so glad I’m with you tonight.  Not only are you stunningly beautiful, you’re clever and funny as well.”

 I run my fingers over the bare skin of his forearm.  “Wait until you see what I can do in the bedroom,” I tell him in a low, suggestive voice.

Midnight Confessions

By OhGeeFantasy

“Wanna go for a walk?” Edward sits on the bed beside me, brushing my greasy, three-day-old hair from my face. I see my reflection in his eyes, but when I dare to peek at the man taking care of me, I see it in his expression as well.

He’s hurting.


Maybe his pieces aren’t as shattered as mine, but he’s heartbroken nonetheless. I have no energy to fix him, and he’s falling too.

“No.” My voice cracks from lack of use. In past weeks I’ve mostly cried out to God, begging Him to explain why He took Leah so soon.

And Edward nods—our way of communication these days.

Just Got Prescribed

By TwiAddictAnne

I let the door squeak shut behind me and asked in a level voice, “Bella? What are you doing here?”

“Oh, hey, baby. I’m just helping Victoria out. Did you need anything?” she responded with a bright smile on her face.

I casually walked toward the ladder she was standing on and stood next to the base, ready to catch her if she slipped. “Just you in my arms,” I said.

She giggled lightly and started to descend the steps. “You’re such a cheese ball!”

I threw a smile at her and shrugged. “Yet you love my cheesy ass, Mrs. Cullen.” I hoped like hell that she couldn’t sense the panic running through me at the moment.

“Can you blame a girl when your ass is so sexy, Dr. Cullen?” She grins at me as she steps down from the ladder and I carefully let out the breath I had been holding.
