Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope you all have a wonderful day today. We're sorry that we didn't manage a post this week with recs, life kind of ran away from us. However, we'll be making it up to you next week, to be sure.

In the mean time, here's some Turkeyday porn for 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


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!



Late Night Encounters by 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
“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
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
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
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
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
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
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!
