Tuesday's Best~October 6th, 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...

The Ranch Hand
by FiberKitty

I was teased and tantalized with this story during WC after WC while Kitty was writing it and I was so tickled when it went live and even more tickled when the "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" contest announced that FiberKitty's The Ranch Hand took first place. If you like Jasper and Emmett and you like Emsper stories then dear sweet fucking Jesus Christ this story is the one for you.

Emmett runs into an old friend and is offered a job. The job is on a ranch and owner of said ranch is Jasper Whitlock. Emmett has had a thing for Jasper for a long while, but since Jasper is with Alice, Emmett is stuck in the space between a rock and a hard place.

On the first day, Emmett can't help but whack off to the images of Jasper - hot, sweaty, and dusty Jasper. The thing is, from his spot in the bathroom, Emmett hears Jasper in the bedroom, self-servicing himself.

I don't want to give too much away, as it is only a one shot, but if you've not read this story, you need to stop whatever you are doing and go read it now.


The Master brings you...

I came across this story via a Jasper/Bella story that the author writes that I read as well, when I saw this story posted in her A/N, I thought I’d give it a quick read. I did…and fell I love with it. There are several reasons why I am living this story so far, some close to me, others just personal preferences. “Lessons Learned” is about Edward, the adopted social misfit child of Carlise and Esme. He has a dark and abusive past leaving him emotionally scared and socially awkward. Then we have Jasper, a loner by choice, also from a dark past, who is socially well adjusted-but we find out it is all an act.

Edward’s past follows him and he is bullied by his peers, beaten and verbally abused. Carlise and Esme fear his lack of friends and social skills at the age of thirteen is reason enough to possibly enroll him in a special school. Overhearing their plans, a worried Edward goes the park to watch his peers and attempt to socialize. Things go horribly wrong and he is once again bullied and runs away, in tears. He comes across newcomer Jasper playing basketball in his yard. They strike up an immediate friendship and Edward invites Jasper to his house for dinner, thrilling Esme.

The bond of their friendship is fast and deep, they tell each other some deep secrets, and Jasper even goes to the park the next day to beat the shit out of Edward’s tormentors. Edward clearly admires Jasper’s skills and confidence, and Jasper loves having Edward admire him. He promises to teach Edward to be just like him, pretend to have the confidence and fit in-Edward accepts the challenge and proves to be a very apt pupil.

Jasper is so devoted to teaching Edward everything, he even volunteers his lips are service to teach Edward to kiss, and to judge if Edward is a sufficient kisser or not. This is one very sweet, yet hot scene, as their tender lips move together and we get Jasper’s pov wanting to continue it, deepen it and enjoying far more than he expected.

After, all Jasper wants to do is kiss Edward, but he resists until they are together Christmas night and Edward spends the night in Jasper’s bed. When they wake, tangled in each other, they kiss and cuddle, with a wannabe grind. Happy sigh.

Now, the reasons I love this story-the author is not afraid to touch on these darker topics, an abusive past, and Edward who cuts himself, a Jasper who takes prescription meds to forget his shitty life, as well as young teen boys discovering themselves and their attraction to each other.

I enjoy the deep back story she is giving us before moving them along-as I am doing the same thing in my story and feel back stories can be so vital to where the characters go in the future and why they make certain choices. Another parallel I see is the depth of the bond of their friendship, much like my Jasper/Edward, hers would do anything for the other, no matter the cost. They can kiss and touch and then be the same Jasper/Edward the next day-to them, it’s normal and acceptable and okay. They are just that close and friendships like that are rare, so to see this unique bond makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I also like her strong Jasper-too often we get hero Edward (I am guilty of this) and a weaker Jasper, but her Jasper, at least at the moment, is confident and strong, someone Edward can idolize.
Lastly, mistyhaze420 doesn’t shy away from details and lengthy chapters, something I learned while reading her other story-and enjoyed there as well.

I cannot wait to see where this story goes, I am hoping for some great angst for the boys, either dealing with their growing attraction to each other, or dealing with those around them as they progress in their friendship/relationship. Go read, you won’t be sorry and be sure to leave her some love in a review if you enjoy it.
