Tuesday's Best ~ 12-29-2009

Welcome To TwiSlashUnveiled!

Tuesdays we bring you the best slash stories we can find, and we have come up with some good ones today. Get ready, grab some towels, get comfortable and enjoy! We have, and we know you will, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl's up first, and she brings you:

Time Turns Elastic
by YogaGal

Time Turns Elastic was written for the FML challenge as a sample writing and OH! MY! GOD! is it a perfect example of a FML moment in life. In high school, Edward Masen, after realizing he's gay, overhears a conversation between his parents about homosexuality. This conversation leads him to closet himself until college. After meeting his "Angel Boy", Jasper, he decides to come out to his parents. Unfortunately, his coming out doesn't go as planned.

Time Turns Elastic would be a beautiful story to continue into a full blown fic. I'd love to find out if Edward's wishes at the end come true and how he deals with the situation he's now in.

I loved Time Turns Elastic for many reasons, but I think that what I like about it most is how realistic it is and how well YogaGal writes this one shot. She's definitely not a novice. She's written multiple stories for the Southern Vampire Mystery fandom. She also has another slash story that she's written for the TwiFandom which features Edward and Jasper as well. According to Nae, she was a nervous wreck when writing slash, but I must say she has nothing to worry about.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yeah, okay, so you should know I have to add my 2-cents' worth for just a moment. I'm with Whitlock's Girl on this one. I would love to see this story continued, too. I'm dying to know what happens next with poor Edward and Jasper.

So while I'm sitting right over here, crossing my fingers and anxiously waiting to find out, why don't I tell you about what I've found for you today? Sound good?

I am beginning to really, really like the contests out there right now. Or rather, the stories that have been coming from them. I found another - to me - precious gem, and I can't wait to share it with you. Not only is this Edward and Jasper, but there's tattoos and some BDSM involved, too. Can things get any better than that? Didn't think so ;)

His Mark Upon My Life
by theladyingrey42

Jasper is Edward's sub. It's hard to describe what's going on without giving anything away. I know, I know, I keep saying that, but dangit it's true! Here's something to wet your whistle with though.

As always, I keep my eyes averted, my gaze low. Anticipating the pain, I meditate on his feet, repeatedly tracing the lines of his black leather shoes, meticulously polished to a low and glossy shine. In the reflections of the scattered lights around the studio, I imagine I can see his cool green eyes, alive with the fire he is possessed by whenever he knows he owns me. Whenever he knows my submission to his desires is complete.

"Jasper," he breathes, low and husky, the very sound of it awakening me from my reverie, instantly alert and ready to react in whatever way it is that he demands of me.

"Yes, Sir?"

"I do not usually grant opportunities for … reconsideration … but given the nature of what I have planned for you, in this one case I will make an exception. Answer me truthfully; you understand what you have agreed to?"

I gulp, brushing aside my hesitation, knowing full well how it will displease him. The tone of his voice, the haughty, domineering quality of it only reminds me of my vulnerability here.

But it is only my permission, my submission, that allows him to behave like this.

It is my submission that gives me power.

"Yes, Sir," I reply, a calm steadiness to my words that surprises even me.

The fire and the pride in his voice rages, as he whispers quietly, resonantly, "You have no idea how much you please me."

What, exactly, is Jasper allowing to happen that pleases Master Edward so? What pain is Jasper about to endure as he submits himself to his Master? theladyingrey42 has done an excellent job portraying both Jasper, and Edward as we see him through Jasper's eyes. I'm sure you'll enjoy getting to know these two. And if you're like me, you'll wish that there were pretty pictures to go with this story so well told. ;)

Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So there you have it, ladies and gents. Another Tuesday with more awesome tales to read. Now just keep in mind that we warned you ahead of time, so any drycleaning that needs doing after reading this week's recs...you're on your own!

Tuesday's Best, Delivered on Wednesday 12-23-2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different...well, except that it ended up being Wednesday. Again. Sorry folks! But never fear, Whitlock's Girl and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices flowing.

So as a peace offering for being a day late (but definitely not a dollar short!), we're bringing you not only our Twi-recs, but a QaF rec to sweeten the deal. Sound good? Sure does to us! So let's get to it, shall we?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's girl presents:

Pegged by Subtle Pen

When I was neck deep in a dumpster dive, barely keeping my head above water, the powers that be intervened and sent Nae to the rescue. Just as I was about to throw my hands in the say "FUCK THIS SHIT!" Nae pings me with a story that fucking blew me off my god damned rocker. Pegged by Subtle Pen was that story.

Subtle Pen has been a TwiSlash fan since day one and most of the time you can find her drooling over DA's PPoD. DA normally leaves her speechless. This time however, Subtle Pen has done the impossible. She's locked my fucking jaws shut with Pegged. Since it is a one shot, I don't want to give the details away, but I have to say, if you haven't read it and you're into slash and kink then I well and truly believe you'll be adding this one to your favorites. It's just that fucking good.

So, with that said...I only have one thing else to add...REMEMBER TO GRAB YOUR FUCKING TOWEL AND BE SITTING DOWN WHEN YOU'RE READING THIS STORY. That is your only warning. I'm not responsible for your dry cleaning when you ruin your pretty unmentionables (wtf are you wearing panties for anyhow) nor am I responsible for the DR. bills from the trip to the ER if you weren't seated when you were reading.


***Check out this QaF story***

Thou Art To Me A Delicious Torment
by Minxie

This is a Season One AU story set after episode ten. Why am I rec'ing it here? It's fucking hot as hell and a definite must read for our BDSM fans. However, as Minxie says, if you are looking for simple D/s-style sex games, then this isn't the fic for you.

Minxie does in 7100 words what most can't do in two, three, or four times that. She grabs a hold of you by your nips and refuses to let go. At the end you are searching desperately for more because you just can't believe that's all of it. The great thing is...it's not. Thou Art To Me a Delicious Torment will be continued in That Which Yields Is Not Always Weak. However, it's not been posted, yet. So, we must play the waiting game.

You can find Minxie and her beautiful stories on InsaneJournal and LiveJournal. If you're a QaF fan, check her out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, jumping in real quick before I do my own rec for this week. As Whitlock's Girl mentioned, I pointed her to Pegged. It just blew me away and I knew, just knew she would love it...and so would y'all. So yes, definitely go check it out. Run, don't walk!

Now in return, she had shown me the QaF story...and though I don't really know QaF (hey, just watched the first two episodes today, k?), I did love this story and I want to read more of it. So even if you're not familiar with the QaF universe, check it out. It's well worth it.

That said, let's move on to my rec for the week. What to tell you about this week's rec, without giving things away? Hmm, well...the name of it would be a good place to start, wouldn't it?

Change of Heart by rachelcullen77

When the vision finished, my eyes shot open and I too began to scream.

“Jasper!” I yelled, not even knowing who I was calling for. “Jasper! Where is he? Help him,” I urged desperately to the two people at the end of the room. Your mother and father, a voice said. However, the recognition didn’t go through me.

“HELP HIM!” My voice frightened myself. It terrified me even more that I was scared for this Jasper. Again, without meaning, my voice screamed again. “JASPER!” I screeched, my voice surprisingly high. I felt my arms begin to tear at the wires attached to me.

Suddenly, the room was filled with people all shouting different orders. I felt hands grasp at me, but I pushed them away. All I could think about was Jasper. I had to get to him. I had to save him; he couldn’t die.

“JASPER!” I yelled again, the people right next to me cringing away. In that split second, I managed to get every hand off me, and I was sitting up, pulling at the wires again. Then I felt a short, sharp pain in my arm, and all the life was sucked from me. I could feel myself slipping slowly away, my head lolling onto my shoulders. Voices echoed in my ear, but one stood out above the others.

“Alice,” a golden voice whispered. I felt myself frown deeply. I wasn’t Alice; I was Edward.

This is a heartfelt fic (yes, pun intended). You can feel Edward's pain throughout, but you will have to read to find out why he's in it. Was Edward able to save Jasper? Read this at your own risk, this is not for the faint of heart (Sorry, couldn't help myself).

By the way, rachelcullen77, I for one would love to see this continued. At least a little more. I'm sure I'm not alone ;-) (what do you mean, peer pressure?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So there you go. Another Tuesday rec, even if it got to you a day late. Worth the wait though, I trust ;-). Hope you remembered your towel, if not, you know who to blame (not us! We warned you ;-) ).

Slash Author Guest Rec - Zulfiqar

Live Like No Tomorrow
By: Naelany
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5152940/1/Live_Like_No_Tomorrow


I have to admit that I am always amazed at the sheer volume of Fan Fiction that lurks on the internet. At the risk of being very politically incorrect, I think most of it is absolute garbage. Now, sometimes it’s supposed to be garbage. This isn’t “high literature” – though I sometimes wonder if some authors don’t believe it to be so. But there is a rather amazing amount of trash to sift through before you might get a chance to arrive at something authentic. So when it happens, landing upon a Fan Fiction work of genuine authenticity can be a great “find.” Now, what do I mean by “authenticity?” In this particular case, “authenticity” = Naelany.


When I first starting writing my own Fan Fiction “Twilight” story earlier this year, I steered well-clear of much more than simple, polite review replies. Somehow or another, I found myself engaging in a series of conversations with Nae. She proved to be a wonderfully supportive, caring, and reliable confidant. Soon I found myself revealing plot details and confessing concerns. It didn’t take Nae long at all to build me a kind of Fan Fiction support group. Soon the “TwiSlash Unveiled” gang followed suit, and the rest, as they say, is history. But in the process of all this connecting we were doing, Nae told me about a new story that she was working on that she thought I would really enjoy and might, just might, fly under the radar of her more widely-read works. “Live Like No Tomorrow” was that story.


Because of the fact that LLNT is less famous (if you will) than some of Nae’s other works, I wanted to highlight it in this particular review. I also think that it’s worthy of note because it’s a story that’s got a ton of potential to be complex and rich take on the lives of Edward and Jasper as they learn to love openly in a time of crisis (cancer). While this is not exactly a novel Fan Fiction approach (the illness battle), I adored the fact that Nae dispenses with the tedious and lengthy run-up to the events. In this story Edward and Jasper have been lifelong friends – naturally – and they waste little time (or angst) pulling the trigger on starting a relationship after the initial diagnosis. And why not? They love each other, as Edward and Jasper invariably do, and understand that they need to live like there’s no tomorrow because, well… Dolce et Decorum Est.


The commitment and love of the two boys for one another allows us, as readers, to share in what looks to be a tremendous, and curiously life-affirming, journey. Aiding in this adventure is a subtle sense of humor, stylish but uncomplicated prose, and a real sweetness sometimes missing from FF’s of the “angst” category (and what can be more angst-ridden than cancer battles?). Indeed, the only major complaint that I might make with this story is that it can be slow to update. Not that I am giving The Den Mother a hard time, mind you – Nae is busy keeping everyone in line more often than not!


So, if you have a few spare minutes this holiday season and wish to take a look at a genuine writer, writing genuine emotions, in a genuine story, be sure to check out Naelany for any of her writings, but especially the lovely, fledgling “Live Like No Tomorrow.”


--
If I may add one minor addendum to my review, I want to take a small moment to encourage something rather adventurous. There is an absolutely enchanting BBC series that has been broadcasting based on the adventures of one Price Arthur and his manservant, Merlin. It’s shaping into a brilliant bromance, and it is well-worth checking out. It’s even something the kids could enjoy. But, and here’s the kicker, there’s been some really, really excellent Merlin slash that has already been written.


The ladies at “Twislash Unveiled” encouraged something out-of-the-box for a review, and I figured that this would indeed be well-removed for the “Twilight” box. Nevertheless, I have little hesitation in recommending “Merlin” as a fun “Twilight” diversion. I think you’d all like it – especially during the holidays! Oh, and, um… the boys are cute and hot. Just saying…

Happy Holidays to you all!
Keep on keeping on!

Tuesday's Best ~ 12-15-2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled

Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. Whitlock's girl and I (yes, I get to post again today, yay!) are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
naelany presents:

It's not always easy finding a slash story that's good, but not Edward/Jasper (don't get me wrong, you ought to know by now that I absolutely love those two together). But I came across one and wanted to share it with you. It's a one shot for the Slash/Backslash contest.

Potential
by Rosmarina

Edward is a journalist for UW Daily, and his latest assignment is not what he asked for. He doesn't write sports. But his editor wants a special interest piece. On Emmett McCarty, decathlete. Edward has some preconceived notions about jocks in general, gained from his own high school experience. Will Emmett be able to change Edward's mind? Is Edward able to see Emmett as anything but a big, bulky athlete?

“Love interest?” I kept my head down and eyes focused on my notepad as if the answer to the question was no more interesting to me than the number of hours he spent in the gym.

“I’m interested in love, love just doesn’t seem to be interested in me,” he deadpanned.

“No significant other? No better half?” I quipped.

He looked at me for a moment as if he wanted to say something but couldn’t make up his mind. “Let’s just say there’s… someone out there with potential and leave it at that for now, ok?” He smirked and his eyes glittered with mischief. This was the first question he had evaded.

What juicy little secret are you hiding Mr. McCarty?

Check it out for yourself. What is McCarty hiding? Could it be the bombshell blonde he runs into at the meet? Or something altogether different?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And Whitlock's Girl brings you:

As y'all know, I've been swamped by real life and treading water is starting to get old. However, I'm here - at least I think I am - with a very, very hot one shot featuring Edward and Jasper.

Rainy Day Rendezvous by C Me Smile

Edward and Jasper are on the way to Rose and Emmett's baby's christening when Jasper realizes they're lost. What will happen to put them back on the right path? I don't know and to be honest with the way C Me Smile's story goes, I have to agree with Jasper's second realization. He's right where he wants to be.

Just to give you a tiny taste of what C Me Smile's Rainy Day Rendevous will deliver...

Growling deeper - the sound as animal and primal as his movements, Jasper thrusts harder, rocking his sleek hips, twisting and rolling them with a sinuous grace against Edward, rolling his body smooth and tight to his, stretching him, fucking him lush and firm. He revels in this - the feel of Edward so tight and heated around him, the smell of his lover suffusing his senses, the sound of the rain, of the wind, the trees, the birds...all serving to make him feel so utterly wild and free - like a god of the forest. He growls with the sheer voluptuous pleasure of it all as he slides his hands around Edward’s rain-slicked, sweat-sheened waist and down to his firm, smooth buttocks, kneading and squeezing, biting into the tender flesh with his nails as he kisses him again hard and wet and full. With another husky growl, he rocks his hips, sliding nearly out, then slowly back in again, pumping slow, firm, liquid smooth inside that sleek embracing heat.

Moaning, Edward grabs tight to Jasper's hair, thrusting his own hips forward as he lunges to catch that hot, spicy-sweet mouth in another lush, wet kiss as Jasper near melts him with that thick driving cock that pushes mercilessly into him.

After you've read this one shot and thrown the towel in the wash, leave C Me Smile some lovin'! See you next week!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

Tuesday's Best ~ December 8, 2009

Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find, and this Tuesday is no different. Well, perhaps a little, if only because I'm on my own today. Poor Whitlock's Girl has had laptop fail and is without internet until her new one arrives.

Don't worry though; I've got ya covered, darlin'!

You're all used to receiving two recommendations, so who am I to deny you two awesome stories? Okay, let's get this started, shall we?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First off, I found something really sweet the other day and wanted to share it with you. It's another one-shot, and it's short, but the glimpse it gives into the lives of the main characters is beautiful.

It's EJ_Santry's Coming Home

“I can taste our toothpaste,” I said, still smiling.

“Mmm. I taste…” he responded raising his eyebrow playfully before leaning in and thrusting his tongue deep into my mouth, leaving me breathless before surfacing, “coffee. Knowing you, I taste a Pumpkin Spice Latte.”

“Indeed, you do,” I laughed, but then pulled him close to me. “I love that you know me so well.”

I know that this isn't much, but once you read the rest, I think you'll understand that just that bit paints a picture of home. At least, it did to me.

Now, a little birdy tells me that this may be continued. I'm seriously hoping that it does, because I've fallen in love already. I'm sure most of you will, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now I promised you two rec's today, right? Let's see what else I've got for you, hmm?

So there's a story that started a few weeks ago that caught my attention. And shocker of shocks... it's not a one-shot! *gasps* I know! I actually read something new that was going to continue. And boy am I glad that it's continuing! ;-) It's one of the stories I'll read as soon as I am able, preferably while I'm waking up with my coffee. Don't know why, but this story is just perfect for it - for me, at least.

The story in question? Why it's by Darkira (you remember her, don't you? from Comfort in Pain?) and it's called Brand New Start.

When an event rider and his horse go through a serious trauma, a "horse whisperer" is needed to try and get the horse back on track. But is the rider beyond any help? How about the whisperer himself?

Curious yet? No? Want a little more? Well, let's see what we can come up with, shall we?

“Mrs. Cullen, nice to meet you, Ma'am,” I said in a low and calm tone, so the mare would see that I was friends with someone she knew.

“Mr. Whitlock, call me Esme. And it is nice to see you ignored my request to meet me for lunch in favor of meeting Calla. I appreciate the dedication,” she said, shaking my hand. Her handshake was firm and friendly, just like she seemed to be.

“Call me Jasper.” Smiling, I turned to look at the mare. “She is a lovely horse,” I said looking at the mare.

Hearing Esme sigh next to me, I looked at her and saw tears in her eyes and I wondered what I said to cause them.

“Oh...it's nothing...it's just...you're the first person that's come to see her who says she is lovely, not was.” She looked at me through her long, and thick lashes. Being she was a petite woman, I towered over her.

“Anyone can see that she is just that. I can't guarantee anything, though. You need to keep that in mind.” It was best that I was upfront with her about this fact right away.

“It's allright. I have a good feeling about this. At least you're willing to try. Usually, people take one look at her body language and decide she's not going to make it. Most say we should have put her down,” she said with a sigh.

“I don't think that would have been the right thing to do,” I replied as she placed her tiny hand on my forearm.

“Thank you for coming, Jasper.” She smiled at me warmly, and I truly felt welcome.

“There's no telling how long this will take. All I'm asking for are meals and a roof over my head for now. It might take a week or it could take months; I have the time. I can try to do this but it will be on my terms. If I tell you, at any point, that I think she's out of reach of my help, I will need for you to respect that,” I said in the same quiet and courteous tone.


If you want more (and come on, you know you do, because...well, where's the rider? Who is the rider?), you'll have to go check it out for yourself. When you do, be sure to check out her outtakes, too. Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, this was my first time posting recs, so hopefully I did okay ;-) If not, you have my sincere apologies. Whitlock's Girl should be back next week. *crosses fingers*

Oh! Almost forgot. I know that the contest is over, the polls have closed, and you're all anxious to find out who won. I hope that you can all be patient for just a little while longer, until WG is back again, because (being the New Kid) I'm not entirely sure what's what as far as 'procedure' goes. I promise that we will get back to you with the poll results as soon as possible, though.

Anyway, there you have it. Another Tuesday, another towel ;-) (don't blame me if you forgot, you oughtta know by now that you're likely going to need one).

Happy Holidays, y'all!

Slash Guest Author Rec - mhl1115

Am I really here?

For those of you who don’t know my history, here we go: I went down the shore on vacation, wrote a one-shot on my BlackBerry in about two hours, got buzzed on champagne the following night, and posted without abandon…only to panic the next day when it was up. So, it seriously makes no sense to me that Trish would even think I am qualified to make a recommendation here, but I am thrilled anyway.

I don’t have time to read a ton of fics, but one was recently recommended to me and I became instantly addicted: Healing Heart, by OCDJen. [http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5420222/1/Healing_Heart]

Here’s the summary:
Jasper, confidant and friendly but a creature of habit. Edward, depressed and withdrawn. Can Jasper get close enough to Edward to heal his heart? Or will it push him deeper in to his pit of hell?

This story is right up my alley as I am the Queen of the Rescuers, meaning that if there is a sweet damaged boy within 10 feet of me, I have to try and be the girl that makes everything better. (God, that’s pathetic to admit out loud, but we’re all friends here, right?) From the first chapter, I wanted to scoop Edward up for a long snuggle. He’s lost and broken; so obviously, I was instantly in love.

If you need a taste, here’s one that made me melt (and yes, it made me a bit tingly).


Looking at Jasper I smiled, his dirty blonde curls hanging in his face. Without thinking I pushed them aside and looked at him. My heart was beating wildly in my chest as I felt his hot breath fan my face. I held his face in my hands gently, his sparkling blue eyes danced at me, the heat of his skin rushed through my hand and up my arm.

“Thank you Jasper.” I leant forward not giving him time to answer and captured his lips with mine. My lips felt on fire against his smooth and soft lips, the kiss was gentle cherishing the feeling of his lips on mine, moving against them. I smiled against his lips before pulling away. A very flushed looking Jasper stood in front of me, his face full of shock.

“Edward..... wow.” He said breathlessly at me, I smiled and took hold of his hand.

“Jasper I’m getting there slowly, will you wait for me?” I had butterflies in my stomach waiting for him to answer.

OK, I know there are those readers out there who are tired by the stereotypical gay characters who are weak and messed up. Although there are a ton of issues that these men have to work through, I can promise that they are truly amazing characters. Edward and Jasper are strong, passionate, driven, and fiercely loyal. They set out on an emotional journey filled with friendship, love, and yes, friends, truly delicious sex.

Run, don’t walk, and read this amazing fic!

XOXO

Tuesday's Best~December 2, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday - ahem - Wednesday is no different. Naelany and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

I know, I know. I'm late again. I'm so sorry. *blushes* Hope y'all will forgive me for keeping you waiting. Real Life is just kicking my ass. Not to mention that I'm living with a piece of shit laptop that refuses to charge cause my darling 2 year old has knocked it off the couch yet again.

So, to apologize for all this, I'm going to throw in two rec's from Naelany, cause unlike me, she's on the ball. I'm also going to throw in a Queer as Folk rec cause slash in any form no matter who the characters are is fucking faaaabulous!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by angelbethy


Today's rec just fell into my hands about a week ago and I just HAD to recommend it. As a child that was moved around a lot, I've been the "new kid" so many times I could probably give lessons. LOL! So, when I read this I could some what relate, you know? (Alas, I never got welcomed to the neighborhood quite like this, though.)

Anyway, when I read this, I just knew it would be a Pick of the Week. The UST is so fucking amazing and the frottage is simply H - O - T!!!! Give angelbethy a shot. She's a fucking awesome writer.

(FYI~ I didn't realize Nae was rec'ing her too. LOL! I told you she was awesome.)

...AND...

This Queer as Folk rec isn't just for a single story, but for all the stories by a certain author. Qaffangyrl is a beautiful author. All her stories capture the QaF cast perfectly, beautifully. She has loads of fics that are open for public viewing, but my faves are her takes on QaF Season 6 and Season 7. These stories are flocked, so she has to add you to her flist on LiveJournal, but it is so freaking worth the wait to be added. You will not be disappointed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

So I had fully planned to rec a chapter story. Really. I had. But then this story fell into my inbox. And it's a one shot. But so good, I couldn't let it pass.

What is it, you ask? It's Bound to Love You by angelbethy, and is written for the SLASH BACKSLASH ONE-SHOT CONTEST.

The long and short of it, since this is a one shot and I don't want to spoil it for you, is that Jasper fell quick and hard for Edward. You know that song, Hot and Cold, by Katy Perry? Yeah, that's pretty much Edward. He tries to take over Jasper's life, in a sense, and when push comes to shove, well... he screws up. Big time. And the results of that are well... hot. Minor cringe factor of no prep, but if you can put that aside...yeah, hot.

Leaning down over him, I let the tip of my tongue brush against the head of his cock, tasting the salty liquid seeping from it. His body remained clenched, anticipating what I would do next. I teased him with my tongue for a minute, never letting him feel any real pressure against his skin. Then I blew a stream of cool air across his head. His gasp was gratifying.

“Jazz, please, I don’t know how much more I can take,” he hissed.

I didn’t answer. I wanted to see how much he could handle, how far he would let me go.

I reached out one finger and delicately traced a spiral around his shaft from tip to base, spreading his lubrication as I went. With my other hand, I cupped his balls and fondled them. Edward gritted his teeth, grunting softly. I encircled him loosely with my thumb and forefinger, dragging my hand up and down with only slight pressure. His breathing quickened significantly. I wondered if he might hyperventilate if I let this go on much longer. Taking pity on him, I squeezed him and began pumping as I rolled his balls between the fingers of my other hand.

There's an element in the story that I'm sure a lot of you will enjoy. What that is, I'll leave for you to find out ;)

...AND...

Okay, so you know me by now. Something moves me - for whatever reason - and I just have to share it with y'all. This time, it's another One Shot for the Slash/Backslash contest. I know, I know... but believe me, you'll want to read it. It's not your normal, average type of slash story. At all. It could be conceived as slightly controversial, even. But it's so good, so well written that you're right there with Edward. Oh, you want to know what the title is and who it's by? How could I forget. It's

Confession by Leon McFrenchington

Edward is struggling, trying to reconcile belief with being who he is.

A realistic approach at a boy who deals with his upbringing and his own personal demons. “Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been thirteen weeks since my last confession. I accuse myself of the following sins…”
I won't give away more than the summary. I hope you will read it, because the way Leon wrote Edward is just... yeah. Very moving. Give it a shot!

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday - ahem - WEDNESDAY filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

Slash Author Guest Rec - Musique

Hey guys! I am so so honoured to be here writing my guest rec for Twislash. There are so many amazing fics out there and so many talented authors in our fandom that I wish I could write about them all! I’ve chosen some of my favourite ones at the moment that make me drop everything as soon as I get that email stating there’s an update. If you haven’t read them I strongly suggest that you do!


Fourteen: by crimsonmarie

Summary: High school is brutal. It's even worse when you're not a size two. Worse than that? Having a major crush on the biggest, hottest jerk in high school. Even worse than that? Being paired up with him for a science project.

My Take: What started off as an idea for a one-shot has turned into one of my favourite high school Bella and Edward fics. You have to love a guy who tries to change for you and Edward is trying to do just that. crimsonmarie gets the emotion spot on and I highly recommend you reading this.


The Training: tara sue me

Summary: Sequel to The Submissive and The Dominant. Edward and Bella embark on their new relationship, but who’s training whom? EPOV and BPOV. AU/AH. D/s.

My Take: Right…now if you haven’t already read both ‘The Submissive’ and ‘The Dominant’ where have you been?? An amazing story filled with love, spankings and fellatio. tara sue me has definitely not disappointed with this follow up. Both Bella and Edward are learning and I can’t wait to see how our favourite couple ends up in this fic.


All I Ever Knew: manyafandom

Summary: Jasper finds something he has been is looking for in the most unexpected place. Friendship and Fluff and Romance. JasperxEdward. Rated M for subject matter and future chapters.

My take: I have a soft spot for Jasper, and obviously love me some Edward… so what can be better than having my two favourite boys together? Having them dry hump on a couch maybe? manyafandom brings our two boys together in such a way that I feel as though I’m Jasper when reading. Amazing writing, you experience all of his firsts with him and you can’t wait to experience more.


Teacher's Pet: Dizzygrl28

Summary: Carlisle re-thinks his teaching job when a new student walks into his class. Carlisle/Bella. Continued from the originally written one-shot entry to Kittenmischief's H.B contest. CONTAINS LEMONS! AU/AH

My Take: Never in a million years did I think that I would ever find Carlisle Cullen sexy but Dizzygrl28 has the ability to make my mouth water and girlie parts tingle. I actually wanted Bella to be with him and that’s just not normal for me! Humour, suspense and hot, hot sex scenes all combined together make this story a definite must read!

Ok so that’s them! I really hope that you enjoy reading them as much as I am! And if you haven’t already seen New Moon…I have no words for you lol it’s amazing! Take care and happy reading (**,)

Tuesday's Best~Nov 17th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. Naelany and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

LOL! I know, I know. I'm late again. I'm so sorry. *blushes* Hope y'all will forgive me for keeping you waiting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by Domward's Mistress


Domward's Mistress is one of my favorite authors and when Landslide hit my inbox I jumped for glee. I love her stories. Her Edwards and Jaspers are so freaking hot and horny and Landslide's Jasper and Edward are no exception. Makes a girl, at least a girl like me, need to start the search for a clean towel and a new pair of panties.

Edward is in an 8 year long relationship with Jake when he meets the sexy, flirtaous and uberHOT Jasper. Jasper coins Edward as Mr. Perfection and is determined to have him, no matter what it takes.

With just the prologue and the first chapter posted, Landslide is just getting started, but having read Closer to God and Slow Seduction I know that Domward's Mistress will not disappoint.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

You know how sometimes you find a one shot that you just love so much, that you want to beg the author to continue it? Well, I found one. And huzzah, she's continuing it! What is it, you ask? It's

Comfort in Pain
by Darkira


It's about Jasper and Edward. It's well written, and difficult for me to really get into without giving away too much. Suffice it to say that they play in the same band. One of them is openly gay and has a crush on the other, who is straight. Cue heartfail? Heart ache, certainly, and you get front row seats to it. Trust me though, the tickets to that show are well worth the price ;-).

I inhaled, realised it was one of those shaky post-crying breaths I was so used to by now. That annoyed me. He didn't deserve my tears.

See, I had been doing this for years now. Our band was quite successful. We all made a living from it. It was five of us and two had a family back in the States. I was single and in love with our lead singer who was single and straight. The fifth guy was a womanizer.

We all loved each other, we had to if we meant to tour the world like this. Still I always felt like being the odd man out in the group. I was the only one who liked men, the others were all straight. We had all made a conscious decision to not hide ourselves. So I was openly gay to our fans and even though some of the fans who tried to get in to my pants were still girls, most of the fans were fine with it.

There was always the occasional fangirl who thought she'd turn me straight. I chuckled a bit bitterly at that idea. As if it was that easy. But no, I was in love with him. Only him. I wanted only him.

That's all I will say about it, because you seriously need to read it for yourself. It's sad, sweet and has a nice...heat... to it ;-). Enjoy it. I certainly have!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

Tuesday's Best~Nov 10th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. Naelany and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by xXAngle WingsXx


I've just started reading Happiness in Unexpected Situations and I have to say I've REALLY intrigued. It's by xXAngle WingsXx, who writes Meeting Him, a story Val and I reviewed back in August. We loved that story, but thought that the author needed a beta. Since that review, she's found one and this story shows.

Like Meeting Him, Happiness in Unexpected Situations showcases Jacob and Edward, but the author adds in none other than my favorite Twi-guy Jasper. *SWOON* Sorry, couldn't help myself. Jacob, Edward and Jasper in a slash story is a girl's wet dream and probably a bunch of gay boys' as well. (Reminds self to ask Zulfiqar what he thinks. LOL!)

So, click the link and read along with me. I think we are all in for a very nice ride.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

I have to thank Beautiful Figment for pointing me to this week's rec, actually. It's been hours since I read it, and it still has me firmly in its grip. It's

Just Like Chocolate by FarDareisMai2

and it's her first venture into Twific. It's and Edward/Jasper fic and it was written as an entry for the Slash/Backslash contest. I know I usually will give a snippet or two of the fic I rec, but I'm not going to, this time.

What I will give you, is three guarantees:

1. You will need a towel (and possibly new panties)
2. You will never, ever look at chocolate the same way again

and

3. You will need Kleenex.

I can squeeze in a fourth one, if you're anything like me. You will be thinking about this one for a while after you've read it. I certainly hope that FarDareisMai2 will continue writing for the Twi-fandom, because...damn!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And Whitlock's Girl has an EXTRA special treat for you Queer as Folk fans...

While Brian and Justin's story left us wanting more, the fandom hasn't. I have been searching through the dregs of the internet for QaF stories that will satisfy my new and insatiable craving for MORE B/J, and by golly I found a fucking beautiful, heartwrenching AU story that picks up during Season Two.

by StrongatHeart

So, if you're a Brian & Justin Queer as Folk fan I highly recommend you read this story. It's simply amazing. The angst, the hurt, the comfort, the heartache, they are all so beautiful and raw and REAL. Be sure to have your Kleenex beside you. You will need it. Turning Points is one that you won't be able to put aside until it's finished and even after you're all caught up, you'll still be thinking of the boys and this story.

Slash Guest Author Rec - Manyafandom

Hey Twi-Slashers,

Yay, it’s my turn! I’m so excited to be able to share with you all some stories that have me running to read as soon as they update and a few one-shots that I abso-fucking-lutely love! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Thanks,

Hopey/manyafandom

Late Night Encounters by kyla713
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5253229/1/
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1705637/kyla713
Lonely ER doc Edward Cullen goes online one night to relieve some tension, never expecting to find what was awaiting him. AH/possibly some OOC. Rated M for a reason.

Why I love it: plain and simple it’s fucking hot. These two haven’t even met in person and have only seen each other once but that doesn’t keep it from steaming up my monitor. They self-please while talking and chatting with each other. Mere words from the other gets them all hot and bothered and off. Hot right? I’ll let you see for yourself.


The Art of Worship by greenpuma
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5356797/1/
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2024251/GreenPuma
“As a Cullen you were born with certain—endowments—that dispose you to success with women. But, there is a beauty in sex which, if you grew to appreciate it—an art which, if you commited to learning it—would bring you such pleasure as mortals never know"

Why I love it: Basically Big Daddy C schools his Virginward son in the art of pleasing a woman. I mean he’s not like in the room giving pointers but he offers simple rules that Edward follows to give his lady love ultimate pleasure. It’s only 3 chapters so far, but each has packed a punch.


Welcome to Hell by skypirateswoman
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5423406/1/Welcome_To_Hell
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1608634/SkyPiratesWoman
It's Bella Swan's first day at Forks High. This, of course, means all hell breaks loose – geek fights, sexual frustration, and really bad dick jokes ensue. AH/AU, slightly OOC, M for mature language. Written for the Googleward oneshot contest.

Why I love it: I’m a geek. I really freaking big one. In this lovely one-shot Bella & Edward are both geeks and have a geek-off. It’s awesome. The author packs in a ton of pop-culture/Geek references and even I had a hard time catching them all. It’s short and sweet and makes my little geeky heart all aflutter.


Your Biggest Fan by OfTheDamned
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5321072/1/
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1889351/OfTheDamned
Throughout high school, the shy and over-burdened Edward Masen threw himself into work and raising his baby sister. He's always felt lucky just to be friends with track star Jasper Cullen. Now, he doesn't know if 'just friends' is enough. AH AU Slash.

Why I love it: It’s really freaking cute. It’s not overly angsty or the angst isn’t caused by Edward’s newfound feeling for Jasper. I like the characterizations of Jasper and Edward. The family set-up is unique and I honestly feel for Edward and Alice. It’s not super smutty yet, just the boys tentatively exploring each other with kissing and making out thrown in.


Times New Roman by kathy-rindhoops
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5383277/1/
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1807061/kathy-rindhoops
University professor Edward Cullen is anything but cool: he’d rather read the dictionary than anything, he hasn’t had a girlfriend in years—and, he’s a pervert. Can new doctoral student Bella Swan bring him out of his slump? AH, AU, OOC.

Why I love it: Edward is flawed. He’s not perfect, dazzling handsome or even smooth or suave. He has an odd, if harmless fetish. I’ll let you discover it for yourself. He’s very aware of the world around him, even if he doesn’t understand it most of the time. He’s awkward and nervous and utterly taken with Bella. It very well written and I completely dig the style.


Something Special by Zombie’s Run This Town
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5418134/1/Something_Special
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1801835/Zombies_Run_This_Town
AU/AH: Everything was fine until she stopped swinging in my backyard. I had to go to her. I had to be her friend. I just never thought love would factor in. For the 'When Love Was New' contest.

Why I love it: Because it’s completely original and unique. I have NEVER read a story like this in the fandom. But beyond its originality it’s completely sweet and endearing and heartbreaking. I truly feel for Bella and Edward in this story.


A Rough Start by itzMegan73
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5319052/1/A_Rough_Start
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/380267/
Overnight irresponsible Edward goes from bachelor to father of a 5 yr old. Meanwhile responsible, prepared Bella begins her first job as Kindergarten teacher at Forks Elementary. When irresponsible meets the epitome of responsible, sparks will fly!

Why I love it: Cause I do. No really this again is an imperfect Edward. He’s not rich or educated and doesn’t have a fabulous job. He’s real, an everyday average Joe. The story is very realistic: the tone, pacing and events. The UST is subtle and slow. The attraction between Edward and Bella smolders but they are so focused on other aspects that they don’t really have the time to pay attention to it.


The Cannabean Betrothal by ItzMegan73
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5354724/1/The_Cannabean_Betrothal
http://www.fanfiction.net/u/380267/
Edward has immersed himself in the Cannabean way to ward off the hurt of a life-changing experience; but an unexpected betrothal teaches him how little he knows about life. There is no abuse in this story.

Why I love it: Again cause I do. I think the author is very talented and knows how to weave a story without rushing or dragging the story. I particularly like this story because the world and society she’s created is lush and has a depth to it not often found in fanfic. The romance and courtship of Edward and Bella is awkward and fumbling at times, but there are genuine affections between the pair. The slow build works here, if it was any faster the story would feel false. I’m not saying that the story drags, it doesn’t. There is an air of mystery surrounding Edward’s past that is revealed in small bits and pieces. I simply love it!

Tuesday's Best~Nov 3rd, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. Naelany and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by starfish422


Well, it's finally here and it's fucking fabulous and it's just one fucking chapter so far. That's right, Katie aka starfish422's Deep Dish has been unveiled on FFnet and I couldn't allow it to not be mentioned here.

Deep Dish, for those of you who have been living under a rock, is an off shoot of the fan-fucking-tabulous story, Over the Top. The story revolves around Katie's original character, Jack Charles - whom Katie has visualized as the one, the only, the fucking beautiful, Henry Cavill. (Can you say YUM?)

So, how does a story about an original character make it on TwiSlash? Well, if you are a fan of DefinatelyStaying's House of Cards, then you saw a bit of Katie's Jack at the end of HoC, and if not then you need to be strung up by your little toes and left to hang for a while. LOL! Anyway, the answer to the Twi/OC question is answered there and as someone that LOATHES having a book/movie/show/surprise ruined I refuse to do that here. Needless to say, the pairing is a little different than the norm for the TwiSlash fandom.

I forsee wonderful things from starfish422's Deep Dish, but then what else would you expect from one of our fandom's leading ladies. You can find more info on Katie and her stories on her blog.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

I knew there was a reason to like contests. Well, reading the fics that come out of them anyway. Every now and then something comes up that catches your eye. In this case, it was...

Don't Stop by Morrissey Is God

Which was written for the For The Love Of Jasper contest. In it, Jasper is found by Carlisle and Edward, starving and well... somewhat feral, I guess you could say. True to Carlisle form, he takes Jasper in and with some effort teaches him their ways. Jasper's not confident in his ability to abstain from humans, and also a little confused by Edward's refusal to be anywhere near him. After a while, things change, as things are prone to do. I don't want to say very much more here, since this is a One Shot after all, and doing so would spoil things for you. What I will do, is leave you with a little bit to wet your whistle with.

I snorted, but knew that was what I was doing – sulking. Fine. Come in. He pushed the door open and shot across the room, sitting on the other side of my bed. Stupid bed. I hadn't been able to sleep for over a century. He laughed. Ugh. Stop reading my thoughts.

“I'm sorry,” he said, and I regretted my words instantly when he got up to leave.

“No, I'm sorry. Stay?” I laid back on my bed as Edward flopped down beside me. His hand brushed mine, and I felt a strange spark of electricity. I pulled away, feeling his own surprise as well as mine. “So,” I said, trying to ignore what had just happened. “You go back to school soon, right?”

“Yes.” I could still feel his surprise, and once again confusion. And.. lust?! My eyes widened and I sat up, turning to look at him. His eyes were closed, and he was shaking his head slightly. “I'm sorry,” he whispered.

“I.. don't.. it's ok,” I stuttered. The feeling was still there, though it was more muted, as though he was trying to suppress it.

“I.. I have to go,” he choked out, fleeing from the room.


Check it out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

I also want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Naelany, not only for stepping up and helping out for a bit, but once she agreed to do so, she did something I've not had the time to do - she's created a list of all our recs and done it in record time, WITHOUT being asked. I can't thank her enough. I love ya chick!

Twi Me Up Q&A - October 30th

Q: Does your Dom ever ask you to dress up?

A: That depends on what you mean by dress up. I have had a Dom ask me to wear something specific to a session, or wear my hair a certain way. I have been asked to wear certain shoes, or certain clothing. However, I have not had a Dom ask me to ‘dress up’ - for example as a naughty nurse, or a school girl. Of course I would, if asked.

Tuesday's Best~Oct 27th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. The Master and I are normally here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow. However, due to that fucker named "REAL LIFE" TwiSlash's Master aka our darling Val has had to take a brief hiatus. She will certainly be missed and I know we all wish her well and can't wait for her return.

With that said, I knew I couldn't carry on alone, so I've asked my good friend and beta, Naelany to join me in Tuesday's Best and bring to you our Picks of the Week. So, be sure to give her some love.

PS. So sorry this is late. My laptop hates me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by DefinatelyStaying


Well, I know I'll probably catch some flack about lovin' on a member of the blog, but DefinatelyStaying's Fractured deserves all the love it can possibly get.

Fractured is the story of Jasper and Edward, but unlike DS's other stories featuring these amazingly fuckhot couple of guys, it isn't smut and it isn't porn. What it is, is an fucking amazing tale of two men who just so happens to be sharing something that most people don't understand and can't possibly grasp.

If for some reason you do NOT have DefinatelyStaying on Author Alert and you haven't read Fractured or any of her other fucking astonishingly beautiful stories then get busy. She's a Mistress of words and exquisitely gorgeous plots.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

I went scouring through my read list, to see if there was anything there that hadn't been covered already, and lo and behold, find something I did!

by mhl1115


You know how so many of us start of as readers (aka fangirls), and don't think we can write anything near as good as some of the stuff out there? Well, mhl1115 was one of them. She got brave though, and with a little liquid courage gave us a very yummy Edward who's not come out yet, and is on vacation with his family. While they're all hanging out on the beach, he sees Jasper. The instant chemistry between them is palpable, and the resulting... well, lets just say the result is pretty hot, and leaves Edward (and you) wanting more.

It's only three chapters in, and I for one can not wait to read more about these boys as they discover who they are and what they can be.

And just to wet your whistle a little...

"I haven't seen you around before. Are you here on vacation with your family?"

Really? He wanted to chitchat? Now??

"Yep, got in a few days ago," I replied.

“Hmmm…” he purred. With that, chitchat was over. He took his legs, wrapped them around my waist and pulled me to him. I was face-to-face with him when he whispered, "I would have remembered you if I had seen you before." I reached out slowly to touch his curls, gauging whether or not this was something he wanted me to do. God, I hoped he wanted this as much as I did. His deep blue eyes were filled with lust as he smiled, licked his lips, and touched me the same way. Only now, he fisted my locks and pulled my lips to his.

I swear I almost came right then.

His tongue gained entrance to my mouth quickly and it was all I could do to keep my composure. Our mouths were exploring each other gently at first, but then with a sense of mounting urgency. I wanted him more than I had ever wanted anything in my life.

When our dicks grazed each other, and the electricity was enough to force me to grab the edge of the table for balance. I pulled away from his kiss and he moaned and leaned back as I slowly licked my way down his neck, his collarbone, his chest.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

Slash Author Guest Rec - Fiberkitty

When I was asked to offer my story recommendations for the blog, I'll admit I panicked a bit. I'm weaning myself off fanfic, and I think I was only reading around five stories at the time I was originally asked. Two new stories started recently, and both are quickly moving up the ranks of my favorites. Neither are slash, and both- ready yourselves for the shock- are primarily canon pairings.


The first, World of Sorrow, written by luvrofink is a very dark story. You can find it at: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5430298/1/


Summary:
In a world of sorrow there are only two possible outcomes: death at the hands of a killer vamp or become the property of one that has purchased you. In a rare moment of luck, one might find themselves mated, allowed to change and live forever. Follow our three favorite Twilight girls as they fight against fate and ultimately join the ruling ranks of the vamps in this AU tale of love and lust.


I was lovingly treated to an advance copy of the first two chapters a few weeks before posting. From luvrofink, formerly known as mrspacman, I would not have expected anything less than a stellar Darkward. She does not disappoint. While her After The Great War, remains my all time favorite Darkward, Sorroward is a close second.


“I can see your pulse thumping under the thin layer of skin. It calls to me, begs me, sings to me, Isabella,” he purred as his tongue traced over the throbbing point.


Yet even while surely a dark, blood-thirsty vampire, Edward also has his tender moments that allow Bella and the reader to fall for him.


“You will take a bath however often you would like, Isabella. I never want you to feel dirty again. You are a goddess and you should feel like one,” his sweet smile made me smile in return.




Even her Jasper is exquisite, starting off in chapter one with enough blood-lust to satisfy my own dark urges.


Before we walked in, my savior’s head snapped up and his fiery eyes locked with mine.

“You’ve kept me waiting a long time darlin’,” his southern drawl soothed my soul.

I was left with him then, my silver haired keeper leaving us be. I stood on shaky legs as Jasper, my love, slid his chair back from the ornate furniture and rose to greet me. He took slow deliberate steps towards me, my blood pulsing in my veins. A soft hum rippled through my body and I felt my arousal grow as he neared me.

“So responsive,” he mused as he stood in front of me.

“You’ve seen me, haven’t you darlin’?” he asked sweetly.

I nodded my head unable to speak.

“Then you know what happens next don’t you?” he asked before dipping his head and pressing his cold lips to the skin of my neck.



Emmett, while large and imposing, shows his true colors when with Rose, allowing the gentle warmth that he reserves for his loved ones to show through.



“It’s alright, Rosie. I’ll just start you a bath and give you some privacy,” he said smoothly as he turned to walk away.

“Thank you,” I whispered. Those were the first words I had spoken to him.

“You’re welcome,” he said with a small smile.

After a few moments he came out from the bathroom with a soft looking bathrobe in his hands. He walked towards me slowly, careful to not startle me. I felt my heart warm at his caring nature. Emmett held out the robe to me.

“You can put this on when you’re through. I have a dress for you. We’ll be meeting the rest of my family this evening, along with their new mates,” he explained as I took the robe.

“Go on,” he gestured toward the open door.






The vampires are dark, yet loving, a combination I find utterly irresistible. The writing is solid, and character development is going really well. Her women are not weaklings, but while still docile to the men's wishes, do show the promise of finding their own inner strength. With a promise of the ritual to be changed into a vampire hinted at in the end of chapter four, I cannot wait for more.



~*~



My second story recommendation is Where the Road Meets the Sun, by miztrezboo. It can be found here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5329811/



Summary: When everything turns to dust and falls apart at the seams, the only way out, may be the only way in. The path you know might not be the easiest, but it might also be the only one you need. AH


Given the prologue, I'm fairly certain that the heart fail is not over for Bella and Edward, Boo seems to have it out for them again. However, I know that she'll make the journey worth it, and give us enough love and warmth to cling to in the moments of pain and tears.


Chapter one starts us off with a Bella we all want to hate...


Bella, my Bella, has one hand on the doorknob and the other tangled in a mess of dirty blonde long hair. My Bella both legs wrapped around this other person’s jean clad waist and her lips… My Bella’s lips are bruised and dark rosy as she giggles and moans as he pushes her up against the door, not waiting to even enter the room before attacking her throat with his mouth.



But, we're given a small glimpse of her salvation in chapter two.



It wasn’t even that Maria’s head was on his lap. It wasn’t even that they looked so, perfect and couple-like all snuggled on the couch like they were when I walked in, breakfast treats in hand that I went out of my way and my pocket to buy. No, it was the fact that he looked at peace. Even in his respite, he looked happier, calmer than he had ever looked when he was with me.
That’s what hurt the most. That he could look like that without me. That he didn’t need me like I needed him.



No, no, no... Don't go running off. This is not the standard miscommunication story. I promise. Both characters have so much growing up to do, and I know that I can trust miztrezboo to help them on their journey to adulthood and finding out how to be whole on their own so they can complement one another as equals.


Along their way, they have some great friends to help. Except for James, he's an asshole. Let's start with James so we can move on to those I don't want to see crushed beneath a ton of steel bars.


"Don't move. It can wait." His fingers dug into my hip flesh again, pulling my body to his. I winced, there was definitely going to be bruising there now but at least it wasn't in a place where anyone was likely to see. That was going to be all sorts of helpful when I went back to the dorm tonight, I wouldn't have to worry about any blonde haired roommates shaking their head in my direction.

"Put your hands back where they were, Bella," James growled, his sculptured chest rising up and down in time with his ragged breaths. His eyes were changing again as the melody continued to repeat over and over from his phone's small speakers.



He started off so hot and ended up an ass. I can only hope that he gets what he deserves. In the meantime, we do get some lovely Spicolisper... If you haven't seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High to know of the amusing character Jeff Spicoli, I highly (yes, that is a bit punny) recommend watching it. The Jasper in this story has partied a little too much but he means well, and provides great comedic relief.



"If it isn't the Bellawan! Breaker of hearts and body parts everywhere!" he chuckled, pulling me up off the floor and into his lanky, beer and pot smelling embrace.

"JW, you sure do know how to greet a girl," I said as he finally put me back down, his hand still wrapped around my waist. "Though I'm not entirely sure what you meant with the breaker of body parts. As far as I know there has never been any form of broken appendage apart from my own." I chuckled, as his hands pulled me close, swaying out of time to the Ting Tings, instead like we were slow dancing to some romantic number.

"You say potato, I say tomato," he laughed, my head bouncing against his bare, sweaty chest. I laughed with him, well more at him and settled in for the ride.



It's Rosalie, however, who truly shines in this fic. Despite miztrezboo's love of Kellmett, she has fleshed out Rosalie into exactly how I think she should be. Warm, loving and loyal to her friends and family, while maintaining her cold edgy outward appearance as she puts her entire heart into protecting those of her loved ones. She doesn't mind telling Edward how things are:


“Well Ethel,” I rolled my eyes at her nickname, how we ended up with such random names to throw at each other was beyond me and fueled from one night of Jaeger bombs while I drowned my sorrows at Bella leaving me so few months ago, “You’re the one that sat there being sad panda all afternoon. How fucking long have you been out here? You should have come and found me.”



Rose is also the one to really lay into Bella about the whole mess.



"You think I should give him a chance. Is that what you're saying, Bella?"

"Y-y-yes," I stuttered, shocked at the absolute venom I could hear behind her words.

"Bella, are you fucking blind? He controls you, Bella. I see it every time you bring him around. How can you not?"

I shook my head, she was wrong. James didn't control me or anyone, he was a free spirit and he brought that out in me too.


Even with all the pain that the star-crossed lovers will be put through by my beloved Boo, two little lines give me hope that amid it all, she is still a romantic at heart.


I couldn’t take my eyes off her and I couldn’t for the life of me remember why I ever wanted to, either. She was still the earth that my moon orbited around, cosmically linked by something bigger than both of us.


Come hope with me and read this story.


I'll see you in the reviews for both of these gems, because really, any story worth reading, is worth reviewing.

Twi Me Up Q&A - October 23rd


Q: I am very curious about all the ropes and tying people up in those pretty pretty pictures.
What should you use?
Can you use anything?


A: The type, material, and style of rope that you use depend on your bondage objectives. If you are merely interested in restraint without the purpose of aesthetics, long term bondage, or suspension you can use any type of generic rope that does not irritate the skin. For longer term bondage, or more stressful forms such as suspension you’ll want to keep in mind tensile strength and comfort. For example rope made from hemp will give rope burns if the bound person struggles too much against them.

If you’re looking for aesthetics for something like Japanese rope bondage, you can use colored ropes, or twisted cotton or nylon ropes which leave marks in the submissive’s skin.

For more information on rope bondage and types of ropes – check out the following resources:

The Twilight Fandom Gives Back


What some of you may not know about me is that I lost my five month old daughter to an unsuccessful heart transplant. I don't think any parent should ever have to out live their child.

Please do what you can to support this cause - tweet about it, blog about it, put it in an AN, and donate if you can.

Thank you,
DefinatelyStaying

Dear friends, fans and followers,

Did you know that every year over 200,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer? We cannot ignore this shocking statistic impacting the youth of the world, and we certainly hope that you won’t either. We need your help.

Starting Nov. 15 through Nov. 20th, the fandom will have the opportunity to help in the fight against childhood cancer. We haven't set a monetary goal, because we're firm in the belief that no matter what we set, you as a fandom will surpass it.

Running this virtual stand, is the biggest challenge we have ever faced – the challenge of raising awareness of just how serious the epidemic of childhood cancer is.

The money raised will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, a 501(c)3 public charity, to fund childhood cancer research projects. The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily to support research into new cures and treatments; to encourage and educate others, especially children, to raise money for childhood cancer by holding their own lemonade stands; and to expedite the process of finding new cures and bringing them to children with cancer now.
Please help support our efforts and this critically important cause by making a contribution by visiting our virtual stand. You can make your donation online by visiting our Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Fundraising page, http://www.alexslemonade.org/stands/19842.

You can also help us by passing this message along to others who may be interested in visiting our virtual stand, or holding one of their own!

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
lolashoes, ninapolitan & tby789
Lola, Nina & Christina

Tuesday's Best~Oct 20th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. The Master and I are normally here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow. However, due to that fucker named "REAL LIFE" TwiSlash's Master aka our darling Val has had to take a brief hiatus. She will certainly be missed and I know we all wish her well and can't wait for her return.

With that said, I knew I couldn't carry on alone, so I've asked my good friend and beta, Naelany to join me in Tuesday's Best and bring to you our Picks of the Week. So, be sure to give her some love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by Beautiful Figment


Naelany and I decided to highlight one of her favorite authors on her debut of Tuesday's best, the one, the only, the awesomeness that is Beautiful Figment.

For my pick of BF's work, I chose Need an Excuse. Edward is on a mission and closeted gay pal, Jasper - who just so happens to have the hots for his pal - has agreed to help. What happens when Bella forces Edward and Jasper into a tiny, tiny closet?

While the story's not overly long, it is fucking hot as hell and features a fabulous dry hump scene that rivals any DH I've read. If you don't have Need an Excuse on your already read list and Beautiful Figment on your alert list then you need to consult a professional, because you've lost your ever lovin mind.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

by beate73 & Beautiful Figment


So Whitlock's Girl calls me yesterday morning, asking if I could help out with the recommendations for a while, since life's taken a bit of a tailspin for her and The Master. So I say sure, why not. At first, she wasn't worried about today's post. But... my mind went running, as it's wont to do in these situations, and I just couldn't leave a week go by without a double rec for y'all. So I called her back, asking if certain stories had been brought up yet. Much to my delight, they had not! So without further ado, I bring you:

By Any Means Necessary by beate73 and Beautiful Figment

This story was written for the "For the Love of Jasper" contest. It's written in third person, and gives you Jasper, Edward, and a little bit of Bella (a very little). Jasper's a musician who's come back to his hometown to perform with his band. Edward was the closest thing to a friend he had and has come to watch the show. Bella... well, you'll have to read about her. Not going to waste words on her when I can quote you a little hot lovin'. ;) Eh, not even that, I'll let you savor that when you go read. But a little sweet, maybe??

“Sexy,” Edward sighed. To this, Jasper blushed as Edward reached up to tuck a wavy blond lock behind his ear. He regarded Jasper’s ear for a moment longer, reflecting on his words from just a few moments before. Edward enjoyed a good nibble behind the ear. A little too much, if he were to be honest. But would, Jasper?
One way to find out.

He leaned in quickly, scared of losing his nerve, before nudging the sweet spot behind Jasper’s ear with his nose. Jasper gasped at the contact. He hoped it was a good thing.

He pressed his lips to Jasper’s skin before gently grazing the flesh with his teeth. Jasper’s body jerked just before grabbing a fistful of Edward’s hair. He gave Jasper a gentle nip before sweeping his tongue across the newly bitten skin.

“Fuck, Edward,” Jasper whimpered.

Before Edward could get too pleased with himself, Jasper pushed him back slightly. His hands become a blur as they worked to unfasten the buttons of Edward’s shirt.

“This thing has got to go. I wanna see you.”


Now, y'all know what BF writes, and that it's fuck-hot (and really, if you don't know yet, where have you been hiding?), so believe me when I say that she makes good on her name ;). Beate and BF write seamlessly together. I loved their Edward and Jasper, I'm sure you will, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

I also want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Naelany, not only for stepping up and helping out for a bit, but once she agreed to do so, she did something I've not had the time to do - she's created a list of all our recs and done it in record time, WITHOUT being asked. I can't thank her enough. I love ya chick!

Twi Me Up Q&A - October 16th

Q: I have had several different variations of the same question this week – has a Dom ever made you hold his semen in your mouth until he told you to swallow?

Follow up question: If not, would you?


A: As I have stated a few times before, every relationship is different, so I can’t speak to absolutes. I have not personally seen this done, no. After I started getting emails about it, I asked about half a dozen Doms and subs that I know, and they had not done it either. That is not to say that it isn’t done, but it doesn’t seem to be very common.

In my experience, the submissive swallows as a sign of further submission. At least, that’s the consensus I get from the people I have spoken to.

If my Dom told me to do that, would I?

Without question.

PLEASE READ: With certain events that have happened in the fandom recently, I would like to add the following - any comments (either in agreement or disagreement of this post) that are inflammatory or derogatory to me, another author, a reader, a community of readers, another blog or the even little green men that watch you take a shower will be deleted without hesitation.

I do not subscribe to the abuse and hatred that has been flying around, and it will not happen here. Our job at Twi Me Up and at TwiSlash is to inform and entertain, anything else will simply be deleted.

Tuesday's Best~Oct 13th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. The Master and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by Whitlock-Masen


Marked is written by the awesomeness that is Whitlock-Masen or otherwise known as SorceressCirce and Naelany. And when I say awesomeness, I mean these two fucking rocked my world with this oneshot that was written for the Tattward and Inkella contest.

The story is told from Edward's POV. Edward, a photographer, is working on a book about tattooing. When he meets Jasper, Edward asks Jasper to sit for him. The problem is that Edward has this undeniable and barely containable attraction to Jasper. Several times during the shoot Edward is dragged into a trance-like state by a half naked Jasper. (Who can blame him?)

While there's not any smexin' yet, the UST in this oneshot is fucking fabulous. It's some of the best I've ever read in fic or published works. It's hot and steamy and leaves you fucking breathless. I seriously thought I was going to need a breathing treatment to get my respiratory system back on track after reading it.

Marked, while only a oneshot for the time being, is being expanded into a full blown story and I for one can't wait for it to happen. It's beautiful, captivating and if SorceressCirce and Naelany's other stories are any indication, the multi-chaptered version of Marked will continue to knock our socks off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Master brings you...

by mistyhaze420


This past week (alright, couple of weeks) real life has been kicking my ass and unfortunately, reading lovely slash has been low on my priority list…the horror, I know! Once again, I sat here and went ‘Shit, I need a fic for tomorrow’ and went into dumpster dive mode, crawled in and pulled out “Never Let Go” by calico736. I thought with only two chapters, this would be quick story to read and possibly recommend. Boy, was I wrong. Yes, it is only two chapters, but the first chapter is over 14k, the second chapter around 7k. The author is not afraid of details, or taking her time, making sure not to rush one moment of Jasper/Edward loving.

The boys are with their friends and sibling/s, Rosalie, Emmett and Alice in a cabin in the mountains. The story starts off with Jasper verbally telling Edward off, while mentally thinking the exact opposite, after Edward tackles Jasper in a game of touch football. This tackle leads Jasper to get a bit, er, excited, and completely embarrassed. While Jasper feels this attraction, and love, for Edward, he attempts to deny his emotions. However, this does not last long, and he soon finds out that Edward feels the same way about him, but neither boy is ‘out’ yet and they do not want to be out’ed to their friends/family in this situation. This means some sneaking around (and even some closet time, literally!).

Things are uncomfortable for them, their physical desire to touch each other, and want to be near each other constantly putting them at risk for being caught by someone. Of course, it turns out they are not quite as stealthy as they thought, and there is at least one other in the cabin that has seen their attraction for each other.

After a life and death situation, they become even closer, and begin to have a more ‘what the fuck’ attitude about anyone finding out, although they are consciously still trying to hide their relationship-which has progressed quickly emotionally but not as much physically.

The author does a great job with the smut provided to date, which has been some grinding, kissing and cuddling, as well as an outstanding job portraying Jasper’s emotions. His love for Edward, and his fear of losing him, and coming out. Jasper’s emotions are tangible in this story. I like the longer chapters, although not when I am in a hurry to write a review, but ones that you can sit and enjoy and yet never be bored. So, go read “Never Let Go”, sink into some good slash and leave the author some love if you enjoy it!

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.
