Slash Author Guest Rec - PolkaDotMama

When Naelany asked me to Guest Recommended for Twislash I had so many fics I was reading that I jumped at the chance.  Now here it is my turn and my life has gotten so hectic as the school year comes to a close that I’m not reading nearly as much.  Nonetheless, I want to let you know about some of the stories I drop everything for and one that may have slipped under your radar.

While it was written about on Tuesday’s Best on May 18th, I am in love with I Wept Not by ArcadianMaggie

Jasper is a war weary soldier burdened by the weight of eternity. Edward is an uncomplicated high school student content to hide his sexuality. Together can Jasper find something to live for and Edward discover some things are worth dying for? J/E Slash

What has drawn me in, besides her rich characters, is the tormented soul of Jasper that I have hope that Edward can help heal.  It is full of beautifully chosen literature, vivid imagery, and the youthful exuberance of Edward, who is absolutely adorable.

A Tangible Dichotomy by PerfectlyPersuasive cracks me up with every single chapter.

Not everything makes sense to us at first, but sometimes, the paradoxes in life are exactly what we never knew we needed. When Jasper and Edward and thrown together, into a dorm room no less, who are they to deny the twisted logic of fate? AH/Slash.

PerfectlyPersuasive has the gift of humor that does more than shine through her work.  It lights up your entire body when you read it.  I have to make sure my husband isn’t sleeping when I read this update.  The chapter titles are funny in their own right, with chapter one entitled, Edward and the Urinator.  Can you go wrong with this great Edward and Jasper fic?  No, I think not.

I just discovered the gem of a story by OfTheDamned called Your Biggest Fan.

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.

It’s an engaging story about two high school seniors, coming of age and discovering things about themselves and each other.  It touches on some heavy issues that I tend to love in a story.

Another story that you may have missed is After the Storm by tjbaby.

Vampire Edward affects Jasper's human life in such a way that he has to decide - life or love? An insight into a world of obsessive love and betrayal, where lines are crossed for friendship and honour; and madness is only one small step away.

This completed fic is a dark piece.  While I’m not one to read a ton of period pieces, tjbaby sucked me into this story very easily with the beautiful pictures she painted.  I loved how she didn’t shy away from being dark, even embracing it in the lemons.

Now with those four recommendations, I also want to mention a few stories that I’m sure have been rec’d time and time again…and for very good reason.
