So, we all know what's coming. The moment we've all been dreading since the moment we heard the movie was greenlit. The Story Which Shall Not Be Named releases tomorrow.

We each have an individual choice to make: either to block out the horror, or embrace it and find the silver lining. By which I mean epic gallows humor.

Cut for those who are taking the See No Evil route.Collapse )

Title: A New Beginning
Author: daintress
Characters/Pairing: E/B
Rating: R(ish)
Category: Romance
Spoilers: Not Really
Summary: Bella had never prevented Edward from kissing her before. She had never even tried to, and he knew this for certain because when he'd been stronger than she, he'd always paid very close attention to be sure she WASN'T trying to stop him. He recalled perfectly that Bella Swan would rather pass out from oxygen deprivation than stop kissing him. And yet her arms, which had held him so tightly a moment before, had released him. - A sequel to Not What I Used to Be.

Hey guys! So I'm participating at thelittlebang this round, which is a multifandom femmeslash mini-big bang fic challenge... thingy. The initial creation stage is now over, which means that rough drafts are complete, and need to be beta-read by at least two people before October 17.

I've written a ~21,000-word Rosalie Hale/Leah Clearwater fic, and am sort of... lacking in betas. I'm hoping to get one from the comm's official beta request post, but I'm not very optimistic about it, because, like I said, it's multifandom, and I picked a very weird fandom for femmeslash.

Anyway. I was wondering if any of you would be willing to beta for me (thereby gaining my eternal gratitude). I know it's a huge request, especially with school starting back up, but I would be very appreciative. My grammar should be more or less sound, so you'd mostly just need to nitpick awkward sentences, make sure the characters are IC, etc., and help me fix anything to do with the plot/flow. (Honestly, I am mostly worried about pacing, especially toward the end.) Even if one person wanted to handle the technical stuff like individual sentences/flow, and another person just wanted to focus on the overall plot/themes/abstract things, that would be 100% okay with me.

If you need to know more about the fic, it's: 21k words; Rosalie/Leah; rated R for Leah's language and one rather sexed up makeout session; and post-Breaking Dawn, dealing with how Renesmee's presence puts a strain on Leah and Rosalie's respective home lives, personal feelings, ambitions, and humanity, and eventually causes them to (separately) leave home, after which they both end up living in the California redwoods for the summer in some ~escapism thing that they're both trying to figure out.

Anyway. I would really, really appreciate the help. So please let me know if you can! Thanks. ♥

Title: In That First Moment

Characters/Pairing: E/B
Rating: R(ish)

Spoilers: Not Really
Summary: It was usually very easy to deal with phone conversations he wanted to listen in on. Most people had to think about what was said to them in order to formulate a response, so he could get the gist of everything from the mind of the person glued to the phone. Not so with Bella. Even still, he’d have been fine if Tanya’d had the sense to replace her 1930’s phone with something more up-to-date. But she hadn’t. So he was stuck listening to half a conversation, just like anyone else would have to do, and it was irritating beyond belief.

Summary: “There’s more than one reason our eyes would turn this color. Yours are coal black, too, you know.” She felt her face scrunch up in question. He continued. “Thirst will do it. Rage. You’ve seen those before.” Then he stepped closer to her and raised her chin with his fingers until she met his eyes. “But this one’s new to you. Can you guess what it is?” He didn’t give her a chance to answer before he was kissing her again. New indeed.
