Twilight, Travel, and Treats

Reflections of a Twihard on all things twilight, travel, and treats.

My fanfic rec today is something I've just started called Going Down? by TexasKatherine. It is a funny fanfic with lemons. Not stupid funny but just light and humourous.
Mini spoiler - the first chapter starts with Bella and Edward trapped in an elevator. The one shot alone should be enough to make you go check it out! I'm just on chapter 3 of 5 now so we'll have to see how things go but so far it's cute. Totally needed after all the heavy epic fanfics I've been reading the last few weeks.

Have you been to my other site lately? If you ever wonder where I am I'm usually doing something on that side. But at least it's pretty over there. Not Edward Cullen kind of pretty but still Twi-Mobile is pretty if I do say so myself. Come have a look!

My eyes are officially buggy from spending the whole weekend revamping the mobile fanfic section of Twi-Mobile. I've added detailed instructions for iPhone, iPad, Kindle, Blackberry, Sony eReader, and Kobo eReader. I'm sure I'm missing a few devices and the list is by no means exhaustive but that's all I've got for now. So if you need more help on taking your fanfic with you to go then please go check it out.

I also made Twi-Mobile easier to navigate by adding drop down menus to the top. Plus I've stickied the important posts for the Twi-Mobile member directory, Fanfic info, and Mobile Blog Set-Up.

Okay off to finish off my fanfic. Anyone have a fanfic rec of what to read after?

I love the Tongue-Twied blog. In honour of KiTT's birthday some of us have gotten together to lead her on a treasure hunt of Twilight Trivia.

There are many blogs involved and my Trivia below is just one in the steps that will lead to TT's birthday surprise.

If you want to start from the beginning the trivia game begins at Robmusement. Check her TT birthday post/sidebar for the Twilight Trivia widget and start your trivia tour.

Happy Hunting TT!

Well some of you have been wondering where I've been hiding. I have been sucked into two fanfics by Danieller123. They are both completed so you can jump right into them knowing you'll get an ending soon.

The first one I found was

Under the Apple Tree
Under the Apple Tree is kind of like Pretty Woman but much heavier. Bella is a stripper/prostitute. Edward is a pediatrician who has lots of emotional baggage. He wants to save her. She is too stubborn and has too much pride to be saved. You get the picture.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the characters. The doctor POV (Edward's) was actually spot on which makes me wonder what Danieller123 must do for a living. Her storytelling around Bella's addiction and abuse is captivating.

Originally I was worried it would be just be angst laden and way too heavy. But Hooker Bella's smart mouth and beautiful Doctor Edward's caring ways kept me engaged.

This is definitely on my top to read list.

I was fully prepared to do my fanfic rec on here and then decided just for fun to check out her other work called The Workshop. Wouldn't you know that I got sucked into it so badly I didn't have an hour free so I decided to finish them both and rec them together.

Okay moving on...

The Workshop: A Tale of Edible Delights

This is a fanfic for all of you Food Network junkies out there. Anyone who enjoys watching Gordon Ramsey tear a strip off some young chef will want to read this.

Bella is a young Michelin star winning chef who owns successful restaurants around the world. Edward applies to be the sous chef at her new location. He is of course a super sexy single father with an incredibly cute daughter. Oh yeah and she has a no fraternization policy at work.

I enjoyed this one for many reasons. I think the biggest was because I love food. They mention the show "Man vs. Food" a lot. I can't tell you how many times I've watched that guy Adam try to kill himself by eating a hamburger the size of his head or a pizza the size of a chair.

As you all know I like to bake. Some of you may not know that I do not know how to cook. Like I can make macaroni and cheese and reheat stuff for the kids. I don't even boil eggs properly. Thank God me and the kiddies have my wonderful husband who can make a feast for 50 people without breaking a sweat.

This fanfic actually inspired me to want to cook more. As I finished the epilogue I told my husband I wanted to try making pasta from scratch. He gave me the "oh my god who are you and what have you done with my wife?" look.

The number of profanities coming out of Bella's mouth in both of these fanfics combined could probably render a priest unconscious. But it's part of the characters so just be forewarned.

Lemon count is decent but these fanfics do not focus on the sex. Enough that they are rated Mature and keep me interested but not enough to render them just smut.

Let me know your thoughts.
