Love Like Winter
by MandyLeigh87

Summary by the author: Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind...For who could ever learn to love a beast? B/E Inspired by Beauty and the Beast AH


I loved this story. Beauty and the beast is not my favourite Disney but it's probably my second fav. I love this story and I love how MandyLeigh87 took it and modernised it. If you think Edward is covered in fur you are mistaken, there is no magic and supernatural things in this fic. Just a man tortured by his past and the scars on his face that reminds him everything he has done. It's the perfect fic to read when there is snow outside and you want to cuddle in a good blanket. Really quick to read so give it a shot!

 
 
Animate Me
  by abstract way  

Summary by the author: Professional animator Edward worships cartoon exec Bella from afar by day and draws her in his comic book late at night. When this Daffy Duck-loving geek comes face to face with his dream girl, will his fantasy world come to life?


You want a fluffy funny sexy cute story? This is the one. I looove this fic. Every update makes me happy.
Edward is an animator but he is also working on a comic book, that's why I made this banner (the drawings are from the TV show The O.C).

A Matter of Life and Death
by Derdriu oFaolain and WhatsMyNomDePlume
read the story HERE or HERE


Summary by the authors: Forget being scared to death, Bella Swan isn't even scared of death, something that both greatly annoys and—even if he won't admit it—entices Edward Cullen. If only she weren't trying to destroy him. Collab w/ WhatsMyNomDePlume for FGB.


Edward is Death and Bella is a scientist working on a serum that can make you live forever. Edward wants her to stop, Bella don't want to stop.
This is funny, well written, smart, cute,...
Derdriu oFaolain is for me the best author of the fandom. If you are not reading Clockwork yet, shame on you. I also love WhatsMyNomDePlume's work, she's brilliant and can write cute and funny story like no other. The both of them together is great, for 8 chapters you can't stop smiling at the witty banter between E and B. It's complete so jump on it.

Leaves of Grass
By: Nauticalmass


http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6555315/1/Leaves_of_Grass

Author's Summary: When Bella and Edward return home from Volterra in New Moon, she isn't sure if she can still love him after everything that has happened.  Their problems extend far beyond the vampire/human power imbalance, as she realizes that Edward will never allow them to be equal partners in the relationship.

The next morning, Bella awakens in a time and place she would have never imagined: Houston, 1862. Far from home, her family, and everything she has ever known, Bella must decide how far she is willing to go to follow her heart. (B/J)

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I fell in love with this story. Being an avid Bella/Edward fan, I put off reading this for awhile. However, I'm completely enraptured by this story. Not only do you see the evolution of Jasper and Bella's relationship, but you catch a glimpse of what like was like in 1800's Texas. There's only a few more chapters, but I can't wait to see how this story develops. It's still considered a W.I.P., but I am more than willing to wait for each chapter.

In Your World
by solostintwilight


Summary by the author: Bella is running from her life when it takes an unexpected detour, To Amish Country in rural Iowa where she finds sanctuary with a caring family. And meets a man who draws her into his world. Welcome to the world of Amishward.
Bella runs from her life in Forks. Away from her father, away from her possessive boyfriend Jacob Black. Fleeing across country she is stranded in a small town in Iowa, and seeks refuge in a community that is nothing like her world. Bella is taken in and learns how the Amish live. And love.


I'm so surprised that I enjoy this story!!! I would have never expected to like a story with Edward as an Amish. It's really far from what I usualy read. What I love is how sweet Edward is, everytime he and Bella are talking I got butterflies in my stomach! They are just so cute. 
The story is also quite dark and angsty. Jake is horrible and will do anything to bring Bella back.
I hope you will be like me and give a chance to this really great story.

Haunting Moon

by GoldenEyess



Summary by Author: Bella has never been ordinary. She thrives being an independent young woman, or at least that is how she appears. In truth, she is well over one hundred years old, but hey, who's really counting?

This is a really entertaining story.  Plus, the author just started updating for it again after a pretty long hiatus.  So, it's definitely nice to see it continuing on once more.  In this story, Bella is a werewolf who comes to Forks only to find her best friend, from many years ago, Alice. What Bella finds out is that Alice is now a vampire. She ends up meeting the rest of Alice's family and guess who she falls in love with? Edward. It's a really interesting story. I love that Bella is a werewolf in this. It puts a real twist on her character.

Think
Blood and Chocolate mixed with Twilight.  Definitely a good read.

Love In Idleness
by twanza

summary by the author: Bella Swan meets the perfect boy during her junior year, but when she finds out he's a freshman, and an evil mastermind, all hell breaks lose.

This fic is my new obsession, only 6 chapters but it's really good!!!! And the author is sooo sweet!!!
It's great when you appreciate a story and you can chat with the author!
Love In Idleness is a combination of everything I love. It's cute, funny, angsty, it contains teenage hormones lol. I love the dynamic between Edward and Bella, they are so cute, they don't know how to act around each other. Bella is the new girl, she's shy  and have a thing for fairies (and is secretly crushing on Edward). The problem is that Edward is almost 2 years younger than her and Bella is not okay with that. Edward on the other hand is ready to prove to his girl that he can be good for her.  (God, I'm so bad a summaries!!!! I'm going to shut up and let you enjoy this awesome story!!!)

An Interlude by newlovenewhate 

Summary: 
Edward is famous. Bella isn't. They meet and talk and fall.

I like the simplicity of this summary, but it may not be a real indication of how interesting and poetic this story is. The writing has a dreamy quality with its word play and rhythm. It's sparse in terms of the number of words written, but there's just enough detail to captivate the reader. The characters, Edward and Bella, are equally interesting as well.

Edward is famous but isn't an A-list celebrity like you might expect. There's awkwardness and quirks that make up his personality as well as that of Bella's. What I love though, is that neither of their personalities are over the top. They aren't overly snarky, overly dazzling, overly shy, or overly whatever. They meet in a diner where, after some time, there's a subtle attraction between them. 

10 chapters are posted and it just started updating again after a bit of a break. The author said at one point that it'll be a short story. I really enjoy it, which is why I'm posting here for the first time recommending it. I hope others give it a go.

 
 
 
Firefly in Summer
by primarycolors


Summary by the author: Edward finds himself back in the little beach town of his childhood when he inherits the local bar from his uncle. The elusive, pretty girl next door has killer legs, a sketchbook and secrets that are slowly eating her alive.


It's a very surprising fanfiction. I thought I was going to read a sweet love story with a bit of angst (and in a way it's that) but it's also much more. I don't know what to say because I don't want to give away to much of the plot. All I can say is keep reading, at one point I wanted to stop reading because it was to hard, what was happening was too unexpected and painful but I kept reading and I'm glad I did. The last chapters are really surprising but it goes well with the story. 
I started to read this fanfiction because of this banner. The banner is made by the author and I trully think it's perfect for this story.

I wanted to try something new! I don't read a lot of One-Shot but there are really good ones and they also deserve a place in this little community! I have 5 recs for you today. You can rec' one-shots too in a comment of this entry :)
 
by Feisty Y. Beden Edward has a dirty secret. Bella is invisible. One strange day brings them together. One-shot entry for AwkWard contest. AH, E/B, flangst.

I love this one-shot, it's totally crazy and hilarious. Feisty Y. Beden is a genius, she also wrote Goodnight, Noises Everywhere.
by BellaSunshine My one-shot entry for the Fic A Pic contest. High school best friends Edward and Bella failed at being more, but made a pact: If they're still single at 30, they'll get back together. Rated T for language.

A lovely one-shot for the Fic a Pic contest, the pic was this oneThe Pact won the 3rd place but it's my favorite of the contest. (banner by me) BellaSunshine is the autor of the AMAZING A Thousand Leaves.
by katinki COMPLETE. 1st Place, O/s Fic A Pic Contest. He's a musician without a song or soul. He spends his nights alone, staring down at the city below. An unexpected guest arrives. She's new, unpredictable, and brash; in other words, she's exactly what he needs.

The same Fic a Pic contest than The Pact. MusicianWard is always good in my book. (banner by me)
by Ezrocksangel and Angstgoddess003 Then he raised one eyebrow, shook his head, and sighed sympathetically, "Cockblocker Swan strikes again." A collaboration between Ezrocksangel and Angstgoddess003 for the "When Love Was New contest". AH E/B Flangst

Rated M my friends. When I see "Angstgoddess003" somewhere, I just read. I recognize myself in some aspect of this Bella and it makes me sad lol.
by Rochelle Allison Bella's sixteenth birthday is made perfect by a kiss from a beautiful boy, but then she doesn't see him again for three years. Does he even remember her?

I already talked about this one when I rec'ed Starry Eyed Inside by the same author. It's lovely and cute :)
