20/07/10

Hey everybody, sorry for the late update! I've only just came back from my festival trip where I camped out with pink sheep. No, I'm not on drugs, and no, I didn't actually sleep with the sheep, they just moseyed around my tent.

Apologies

Hi guys,

Miss-Beckie-Louise here. I know that this week has been fairly lax on the posts and I'm really sorry about that.

In the mean time, I won't be posting for a while, I'm really ill at the moment, and I have no idea what is happening, maybe the doctors can let me know in the morning. I'll keep you all updated with what is going on, and I have no idea what is happening with Teasers and Rec's and once I'm better I'll post huge posts to make up for it :).

Lyndsey, KC and Kitty Cullen will keep posting I think but just know that there won't be many posts up each week!

Thanks again guys,

Beckie

Straight from the source with TrampVamp





with 
1. What brought you to the wonderful world of Fandom?  Did you start with Twilight, or was there a little something-something before Edward met Bella?
    

Twilight.  I have had a fascination with vampires for as long as I can remember.  My husband and I brought the kids to a water park one November and we were each looking for reading material to pass the time while the kids played in the water tubes.  I saw this book about a vampire in love with a human.  I had not heard a word about it before that moment.  Can you say life altering moment in Walmart?  Read Twilight that night and discovered there was more.  I read the next three in the next few days and then read them all again.  And again.  And again. Until I saw New Moon on new co-workers desk.  She turned me on to FanFic and in addition to being an amazing author, has become a friend. 
2. In your opinion, what makes for the ultimate Rosalie? We know she's beautiful, drop un-dead gorgeous, but what brains hide behind that beauty? Do you go for the cold and callous, bitchy and beautiful, or passionate and jaded?  If Niki Reed didn't play Rosalie, who do you think could have?

I think that Rosalie is quite intelligent, but in her time , learned as a young human that women kept their mouths shut and made for good wives.  I think Rosalie is somewhat jaded by the events of her past, at the very least she has major trust issues.  It takes a lot for her to let anyone in and when she does she is loyal to the death.  In my fic she gives off a cavalier, no body gets to me attitude.
 You know I never saw Niki as Rosalie.  I think Niki is so much more beautiful as a brunette and the wigs and die jobs made her look ridiculous.  But when you ask me what actress  would make a better Rosalie, I just don’t know.  I am partial to Molly Sims and Tara Reid at the moment.*wink*

3. So you're fic, Fire and Ice is a Garret and Bella, pretty much a rare pair if there ever was one. What inspired you to write Rosalie with Garret? What, in your opinion, makes them work.

It was done for a contest entry for B characters.  I have a major thing for Garrett.  He is your quintessential bad boy, never settling down, rogue nomad filled with fire and passion.  Rosalie as the ice queen just balanced that perfectly.  I liked the idea of his heat melting her, chipping away at the trust issues, and the idea of intense physical attraction leading to an emotional  bond, that at the same time melts her frosty fa├žade and tames his wild ways.


4. If you could name your favorite Rosalie's in the fandom, from what story and by who?
First Love Lost and Last Love Found features Rosalie in a supporting but fairly major role as Jasper’s cousin.  I used Rose as a pretty central character in Only At Night as Lead, Bella’s  friend. Honestly I stretch to think of another story that features Rose.


5. What are you currently reading? In the fandom or out, take the time to give your favorites a shout out!

There is something outside the fandom???  Haven’t touched anything outside the fandom in a really long time.  I like a variety of stories from slash to Edward Bella, but I typically read Jasper Bella.  I love a good Carlisle too. 

I am extremely far behind in updates but these are on my alerts or that really spoke to me recently

Your Biggest Fan by Queen of  the Damned
Devil’s Angel by Obsessing Over Edward
I’ll Be Good For You, Tilly Whitlock
Gasping For Air Wolfenmoon1313

Of course there are dozens more and I would just point to my alerts, but these are just a few.

ATTENTION!

Hey guys,
So I'm guessing this summer, a lot of people are doing a lot of things. So, for the time being, Amelie- our reviewer- is stepping down for a while. However, she said she'll write a review once a month.

So, if you're interested in reviewing? Part-time or just for the summer or until Amelie comes back, please contact us at fortheloveofnoncanon@gmail.com


One Shots


So it's Rosalie week, which kind of put me in a pickle. I wanted to find something good, but I don't often read fics that center around her. I was surprised when I did a little digging and found some pretty awesome fics! The first rec was actually sent to me on twitter (Thanks Gem!) and I took the time to read it. I was pleasantly surprised.

It's AH, Emmett and Rosalie. He's a bartender, she's a patron with eyes for him. But it's sweet...the whole thing is sweet. It's a nice treat to get to see Rosalie in such a light. Not just the 'bitch' from Twilight.

Undisclosed Desires by BBSapphire24

It's not only sweet and well written, but it's pretty steamy as well. For a first fic, the author did a great job. Here's a little tiny taste:


I unlocked the door and Emmett pushed it open, allowing me to get out of the cold first, despite his lack of clothing. I wanted to take the stairs two, perhaps even three at a time, but was doing my best not to seem too eager for this. Emmett, on the other hand, didn't mind showing how eager he was and insisted we take the elevator.

"You do realize I only live on the second floor."

"Yes, but the elevator will be much more fun," he said as he pulled me into it.

He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me flush against his body.

"Do you realize how long I've wanted to kiss you? How many times I have thought about those lips of yours?"

He spoke against the skin of my neck as he trailed kisses down it. If he hadn't been holding me up, I would have collapsed in a heap on the floor. To think that he had these thoughts, these feelings for so long, and I had been so oblivious to them.

Nice, right?

Now on to my next selection for the week. I wanted to pick something a little different, a little more serious. I scrolled around for a bit until I clicked on a pairing that struck me as crazy. This next story is Rosalie and Ephriam, and believe it or not, it works. The story is written in a parallel, between present day and the past, and it's very well done.

Reflections on History by SleepySheep683

Here's a little bit:


Ephraim swam towards her, and Rosalie felt the heat build the closer he got, emanating from him through the water.

"You look lovely," he assured her, reaching forward and sweeping her wet hair out of her face with a touch so tender she could scarcely believe it came from the same man.

Then he pushed his hand through the water and splashed her, before swimming away, sniggering.

"That's not fair!" she insisted hotly, swimming after him and splashing him back. He returned the favour, and soon the pair of them were chasing each other, giggling as they did their best to soak each other further.

Eventually, Rosalie leapt onto the cliff face, calling out, "Catch me if you can!"

As she effortlessly pulled herself up the cliff, using barely-there hand and foot holds, she heard Ephraim chase after her, his body heat tangible as he advanced on her, catching her in his arms as they reached the plateau and pinning her to the grass.

"I have got you now," he teased playfully, his hands pressing her arms against the ground, his face inches from hers. "You shall not escape my clutches!"

This story is really nicely written, and poses an interesting scenerio.


Hope you guys enjoy these!


Much Love,


Kitty C.



Special Post:- Roseward by Frenchbeanz

(Special thanks to Xenia Downs for the amazing banner)

Rosalie and Edward

aka

Roseward

If you’re not keen on this pairing, you definitely aren’t alone. After reading the Twilight saga, there were very few people who came out the other end saying, “Man, I really like that hot bitch Rosalie!” I’ll admit, I was a hater. She just seemed so unnecessary to the story, someone who took up good Bella and Edward smooching time.

The first time I came across a Roseward story, I think I ran the other way. It was so wrong. I mean, he’s so perfect, and she’s so . . . perfect, but . . .

oh.

And therein lies the appeal for a lot of people. They are made for each other—two beautiful, broody souls who are overprotective of the people they love. Rosalie is strong, confident, outspoken, the antithesis of the meek, plain Bella. And much more worthy of the perfection that is Edward Cullen, yes?

Okay, so maybe that doesn’t motivate you to run out and start reading Roseward. Perhaps I can tempt you with another alluring aspect of this pairing—the very one that drew me in. It’s canon.

Think about it . . . Carlisle changed Rosalie so Edward would have someone for himself. Sure, Edward claims she was too shallow for his telepathic self, but I know of a part of the male body—particularly a seventeen year old’s body—that’s also pretty shallow.

There are a number of fics out there that explore the canon relationship between Rosalie and Edward. A wonderful AU is Breaking Points by sugarbucket. The story is so emotionally written and has scenes I can recall with perfect clarity (and dreamy sighs). It begins with Rosalie’s transition and has so far taken us through to New Moon. It’s wonderfully angsty, full of lust and hatred and torturous restraint. Rosalie and Edward share a dark love, the result of his abilities and the circumstances of her death. Their love for their canon partners is not diminished, just different, and not nearly as powerful.

If you’d prefer to read a more canon version of Rosalie and Edward’s time together, then I recommend locqua’s Betrothed. We’re still pre-Emmett with that one, and I’m not certain how far it will go. For a brief snapshot into something that could have happened, have a look at In Return, by gallantcorkscrews. It’s a gritty, dark AU one-shot that is an exceptionally good read.

And now onto the AH . . . Alas, the most popular Roseward has gone to fic heaven[i], but there are many more taking its place. LightHeartLoreli (a collaboration between LightStarDusting, The HeartofLifeIsGood, and LoreliD) have written I’ll Be Seeing You – A 40s style drama with Private Detective Edward Cullen and the lovely cosmetics heiress, Rosalie. This story also has a sequel called My Girl Friday. Both are complete!

The Elite by Fate.of.Gabriel, while not strictly a Roseward story, has its fair share, and it is one of the best non-canon pairing stories out there. If you’re reading this blog, you should be reading it ;)

For AH one-shots . . . Can’t Break Free by jadedandboring, and Wake Me Up When September Ends by LuckyStar815 spring to mind. There are plenty more out there though.

So go forth, read the hotness that is Rosalie and Edward together. There is never a shortage of lust and angst, two of the best lures for me, and with any luck, you’ll be inspired to write your own.

Pairing Info: Rosalie

Hey guys, sorry for the late post, I've been pretty busy these last few days making this:
Yeah you can all say "aww".

Anyway, this week is Rosalie Week! Special thanks to my lovely "one and only" Xenia Downs.

So, searching for Rosalie fics.. and there are loads! I never expected there to be so many! 2,977!!

About Rosalie... Queen bitch of the saga, hot, blonde, anyone else jealous? I sure am. Has awesome Emmett as a husband... fixes cars, what else do guys need?!

So, what pairings are there for Rosalie and some random fics... Well... we have quite a lot...

Jasper and Rosalie (80)


6 Strangers keep running into each-other. First in Tijuana, then Forks, lastly Costa Rica, but when two people go to far, will it ruin the friendship all of them could have had?

Edward and Rosalie (232)

Edward and Rosalie end up in an old, desolate theatre. What will happen when danger emerges, in the form of the Volturi? There is more to this than it seems, let the story unfold...

The scene is 1940s Chicago. Rosalie Hale's father is dead and she suspects foul play. Distraught, she contacts private detective Edward Cullen. Can he solve the case and fill the hole in her heart? Murder? Mystery? Sexy good times? Yup, we've got 'em!

Jacob and Rosalie (123 (456789) )

Life seems perfect to an outsider. Who wouldn't want to be the beautiful and utterly adored Rosalie Hale? The grass is always greener...

Esme and Rosalie (19)

A witch changed in 1923 expected a equal life with her mate. But when her witch side fought back, she became half and half. With her growing weaker, she, with her coven, seek treatment from Carlisle. Who else will she meet? Meyer pairings with OCxOC.


Bella and Rosalie (343)

Chapter 55: "This is how I'll do it," she told me so tenderly, holding my face in her hands.

Carlisle and Rosalie (43)

Eleven-year-old Rosalie Hale is abused and Dr. Cullen and his wife want to adopt her. Her abusive parents aren't thrilled with the idea. WARNING: CONTAINS CORPORAL PUNISHMENT/DISCIPLINARY SPANKING OF AN ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD.

Alice and Rosalie (115)

All human. Rosalie, Alice and Bella are good friends with boys Edward,Emmett and Jasper. What happens when a prank just goes too far?

Leah and Rosalie (28)

Allies are often found in the least likely of places. While Bella was living her fairytale in Breaking Dawn, there's always more than one side to a story. Rosalie and Leah share many things in common, and against their nature, a bond begins to form.

Riley and Rosalie (1)

emmett has left rosalie , she doesnt know if shes ever going to fall in love again , will a new born change all that? May put smut in so rated M ..

Paul and Rosalie (3)

Rosalie is the queen of the world. She gets what she wants... every Thursday, she wants Paul. Lemon scented goodness awaits.


Many characters and Rosalie

Bella Swan has everything... billions of dollars, her own private island, and a beautiful loving girlfriend. What happens when Edward Cullen finds his way back into her life? Can he tame her? Does he want to?



A HUGE thank you to the TwilightMuses and to Hev99 and to anybody else you answered my tweets while writing this post!

I'll post again in a minute! The lovely Frenchbeanz has written a piece on Roseward! So I'll get that up in a giffy!

If you have any teasers or rec's or want to be a staff member; full time or part time please fill the forms in up top :)
