Tuesday's Best - March 30th, 2010

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 hearts to sing and your juices to flow.


Donna's Pick of the Week...

by Alister Eternia

*shuffles in blushing*

Hey everyone! I'm back from my short temporary hiatus and I'm thrilled to be here with an awesome story for you.

City of Dancing Lights was one of the very first slash stories that I ever read. Edward, a teacher, moves to Vegas to get away from an abusive lover. Unfortunately, he isn't able to stay hidden for long and James finds him. The violent attack that ensues leaves Edward unable to walk. Refusing to stay in the hospital he asks Dr. Carlisle Cullen for help in locating a full-time, live-in physical therapist.

Enter from stage left, big, brawny and devilishly sexy, Emmett Cullen. Alister's Emmett is a beautiful, funny soul much like Stephenie Meyer's Emmett. While some may not love a gay Emmett, thanks to Alister, I fell in love with gay Emmett. Not only is he big and brawny, but he's also sexy as hell and I just can't get enough of him.

Here's a taste to whet your appetite...

Not a moment later, he pulled me by the neck to meet his exquisite mouth again, resuming our passionately heated embrace. He started grinding his hips into mine, and while I was more than enthusiastically willing to return these actions; I needed to feel more of him.

Edward released the hold that he had unwaveringly claimed on my ass, and while I was stricken with a sense of loss; that feeling was all too fleeting. As if he had plucked the want… no, the need out of my head, he started to sit up pulling his shirt over his head. The movement broke our erotically provocative kiss, but it was a price I was willing to pay to see the treasure of utter beauty that lay just above our straddling hips.

I took a moment to take in everything held before my eyes. Edward's body was the most amazing sight that I had ever had the pleasure to behold. He had a slim waist that his jeans clung to in a lovely manner, and God how I envied that damned article of clothing. My gaze traveled over the lengths of his abdomen that sloped and curved in all the right places, giving the emerging outline of a six pack that suited him. Then my eyes strayed to the scar that marred his perfect body, but somehow added to his beauty, giving a rugged look to an otherwise aristocratically regal appearance.

A sudden urge over came me and I could not help but to plant a loving kiss where the scar began just beneath his right nipple; which was taut with arousal. Edward gasped suddenly when my lips met his flesh, and I peered up to see his emerald eyes shining down at me in wonderment. I began to kiss my way down the marred flesh, my own arousal growing with each touch of his skin I was granted. I was blessed with an elicited moan from my love with every other caress. I was doing my best to kiss away all his demons.

As I reached his shoulder I silently thanked whichever god that had allowed this man to live, and be brought into my life. Edward's hand caressed my hair, lightly pulling like a cat. All I could think at that moment was, 'My Little Sadistic Lion'.

Hope you enjoy and leave Alister Eternia some love!


Naelany brings you...

by Sweetp-1

So a couple of weeks ago, someone did a shout out for pre-readers, because they weren't sure about their story. It was for a contest (the Black Balloon Contest, it closes on April 2nd, so if you're quick you can still enter), and it was slash, so I said I'd give it a once over. And then I told her to go post. Not just to enter the contest, but damn I wanted to rec that thing! So here I am.

If you haven't read Once We Were Kings by Sweetp-1, you need to rectify it, like...now. It's about Seth and Edward, and it's AU so they're wolf and vamp. You wonder how it can work? So did I, but it does. Very well, in my opinion. And I've already begged her for more (and maybe gave her a plotbunneh or two in the process).

Seth has transferred from the QTS to Forks High, to keep his promise to his dying father - that he go to college. QTS doesn't have AP classes, hence the move to FH. And who should be in his biology class other than...Edward Cullen. The two become lab-partners and strike a reluctant friendship.

We get to watch as they grow from maybe-friends, into true-friends, into...well, you get the idea. But wait...wasn't there something about wolves mating? And isn't there something about the way vampires mate?

Edward looked up at me. His eyes were amber today. Sometimes they were darker, like liquid gold. I used to think they were vile, but actually, they kind of suited him. He was already too handsome to be a mere mortal; too chiseled, too perfect. The eye color was just another thing that set him apart.

A soft smile passed over his face as he caught my thoughts.

"Why don't you have a partner?" I blurted out, horrified at what he had heard me think. "I mean, Emmett and Rosalie, Alice and Jasper…they've all hooked up and you haven't. So, I was just wondering, doesn't it get a bit weird being the only single one in a house full of couples?"

"If you mean, do I ever feel awkward and lonely? Then the answer is yes." Edward's stark honesty sent a little pang of pain through my chest.

"So, how does it work? Do you go looking for a human chick that you like, and then ask her parents if you can bite her and make her immortal? Or are there ways of meeting vampire girls? For all I know, there could be an online dating service for your kind. "Pale cold one seeks equally undead mate," or some shit like that." I laughed at my own joke, even though it really wasn't that funny, or at least, Edward didn't seem to think so .

A flash of something painful passed over his face, but it was gone before I could figure out what it was.

"Vampires mate for life. I guess I just haven't found the right someone yet," he said quietly.

"We're like that too, you know," I said, wishing I had realized what a stupid question it was to ask in the first place. The last thing I wanted to do was make Edward upset.

"Like what?"

"We mate for life. Sometimes this thing, imprinting, happens. It's basically love at first sight, but I've heard it's harder and bigger. Like, you can't function if you're too far away from your imprintee. Or you literally die of a broken heart if they die. Like, you're bonded to this person; bewitched. And you don't have any control over it, it just happens to you. It's almost creepy when you think about it. It's supposed to be rare, but it happened to Sam. He imprinted on Emily, even though he was shacked up with my sister at the time." I cringed as the words vomited out of me.

Now how will this end up for these two? That, you're going to have to read to find out. If you're anything like me, you'll be clutching at your heart while begging for more.

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.
