Good morning, my lovelies! I trust you've all survived the Christmas holidays and are preparing yourselves for the New Year. Hard to believe 2011 is almost over, isn't it? Makes you wonder where the year's gone. But, we still have a couple of recs to deliver, so let's get right to it, shall we?

Guest Rec - Buildmeapyramid


When naelany asked me to do a guest rec for TU, I think I grinned like an idiot for a full two hours afterwards. I’d never have dreamt of being recc’d on this wonderful blog, let alone being trusted to keep my inner Twislut on a leash—albeit a very long, stretchy leash—long enough to write a reasonably calm and coherent rec. And then there was the matter of deciding what to rec. But after much fussing, fretting, and a very long debate between me, myself, and I, I’ve at last come to a decision.

And so, I begin.

Guest Rec - Dtav


Hello all!  It’s Denise aka dtav.

When I was asked to do a rec here I will admit I did a little fangirl squee before composing myself enough to say yes! I’m so excited to be talking about some of my favorite stories!  It was hard deciding which ones to concentrate on, as I love so many, but since one of my choices, Sinners Island by TwistedforTwilight, was done already it narrowed it down for me.

Guest Rec - EdwardsLove82


Hey guys… It’s Nicci aka EdwardsLove82…

I was asked to give a few recs on here and I was thrilled to do it. I have tendencies to ramble when I fan girl over my favorite authors, so you’ll have to forgive me, cause I know it’s coming.  First I want to thank the staff of Twi-Slash Unveiled for pimping out my own oneshot, Stolen Moments, a few weeks ago. I was completely stoked to see that up there. And word on the street is that they were hoping I would continue with the story … and just for them, I think I will. As soon as I clear up some of my schedule, I will see what happens when our favorite boys let the truth come out ;)

TwiSlashUnvieled Rec: He Who Dares, Watches by Fr33bird

Summary: *Judges Vote: Best Slash in the Spanking the Monkey Contest* It starts with a dare on the bus but Edward's reaction to Jasper shocks him and results in a journey of self-discovery. AH, high school fic. Explicit adult content - lots of it.

When naelany asked me to do a rec for this site I was at a bit of a loss as what to choose. Luckily, sadtomato was ranting and raving about this little gem on twitter and sucked me in! Fr33bird has really taken the sexy slash and made it cute and sweet as well. This high school Edward and Jasper are so adorable in their self discovery and the discovery of each other. It’s beautiful and funny and so effing hot!

Good morning, my lovelies. I don't know about you, but we've had our first frost of the season this morning. Makes me want to make some hot cacao, and settle in under a blanket by the fire to read some wonderful fics. Plenty of ways to keep warm that way, right? ;-)


This week's Aradi's last time with us. I thank her for her wonderful contributions and support for the past year since she joined TwiSlash Unveiled. It's been a pleasure. Please leave her some love today. Connie79's going to be taking over for her in a couple of weeks, so bid her a warm welcome, as well. 


For now, why don't we see what goodies Aradi and I have found for you? Remember your towels and fresh panties, and let's get to it.

Guest Rec - Avioleta


When I was first asked to write a guest rec for this week’s edition of TwiSlash Unveiled, I was excited.  How could I not be?

But my excitement quickly bled into concern.  Concern because I literally had absolutely no idea what I would rec.

For the last few months, I’ve been entirely absorbed with Slash/Backslash.  The contest produced 48 fantastic stories this year.  And, if you haven’t finished your SBS 3.0 reading, I encourage you to go now, run! What are you waiting for?

But I knew that, as a co-host and judge, I would have the opportunity to review my favorite entries on TU, leaving me with the same question of what to rec this week.

When Fiction Comes To Life

Fiction Really Did Come to Life!

Ever stop to think of all the great benefits of reading slash? I’m sure you’ve considered the obvious…… enjoyment, pleasure, relaxation, escape… Not in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine it also bringing friendship, meeting amazing people, satisfaction in knowing there are others like you, and making a positive impact on the world. But that is exactly what I found when fiction really did come to life during a recent weekend in Chicago.

Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a fandom slut and I’ve been reading fan fiction for a long time. Slash is a large portion of the fan fiction that I read and I read it in a lot of fandoms. So, since I’m a big ol’ slut, I decided to give you sampler of some of my fave fics from several fandoms. Now, you Twilight fans do not dispair. I have two Twi fan fics in here, an AU and AH, because I can’t even control my slutty ways in one fandom. As for the others, I have a diverse group of naughty delights for you from several fandoms including DC Comics, Harry Potter, Star Trek, X-men movies and even a little TV show called The OC. Oh yeah, nothing is safe when it comes to my slashy cravings. Without further ado, BRING ON THE SLASH FIC!

Slash/Backslash 3.0 Winner's Cirlce


The Slash/Backslash 3.0 winners are in!
Judges: avioleta, Capricorn75, Conversed, and theladyingrey

When SBS began accepting entries on August 1, 2011, we had no idea what to expect; we were absolutely blown away by the results.  Although we had hoped for a strong turnout, we had no idea how much excitement this round of SBS would generate.  

We received 48 fabulous entries by a wonderfully talented group of slash writers.

The caliber and quantity of entries was so high, that the judges had as much difficulty as our SBS readers in determining their favorites.

So, without further ado, here are this year’s Slash/Backslash winners:

When Fiction Comes To Life


HIV/AIDS

There are two items that make an appearance in just about every Twislash story: Lube and Condoms.   They are packed for ever trip, sometimes stashed in every room, and nearly always readily available.

And just why are they so important? Let’s leave the lube for another day, but those condoms are crucial to preventing sexually transmitted diseases, and most crucially of all, preventing the deadly HIV/AIDS virus from spreading.

I know very little about HIV/AIDS, so I plan to share links where much more information can be found.

Helloooo Slash lovers,
It’s totally awesome to be over here at TwiSlash Unveiled.  Thanks goes out to naelany for giving me the opportunity to let everyone know what I’m reading…I’m sure everyone is absolutely dying to know…rolls eyes…I have a few stories on alert right now…My drop everything I’ve got to read right at this precise moment is Sixty Five Hours by Owenic. The last update I read came when I was at work so I read it on my phone and let me tell you…I almost dropped my phone and fell off my chair. I know I gasped out loud…Really, if you aren’t reading that story… go now…it’s well worth it…Edward and Jasper work at Cullen Advertising. Jasper is out as a gay man and Edward is buried under a pile of clothes in the closet.  Hot Hot Hot!

BTW, I've also enabled Mobile Blogger so when/if you access our lovely site from your mobile devices it should be much friendlier.

I miss and love you all and still think of you daily. Life was much simpler when I was immersed in the fandom and I find myself longing for those days now.

Guest Rec - Owenic

First off, let me say a HUGE thanks to Naelany for asking me to do this. I went from squeeeing like a fan-girl to panic stations in three point eight seconds. I didn’t know what the hell I was going to rec. Nearly everything I read, or have read, has already been recommended on this here wonderful blog, because let’s face it...there are some fucking awesome stories out there.

So, I spent hours scouring my faves list, my yet-to-read list, even the favourite lists of my favourite authors, ending back at my list of faves...and I narrowed it down. To two.

One is epically popular. The other is basically unheard of.

One is Twilight fanfiction, the other is not.

Good morning, y'all. Hope the day finds you safe, sound, and healthy. Today is the last day that Conversed joins us with a rec, I'm sad to say.

It's truly been a pleasure.

That said, I'd like to welcome MizzDee on board, who'll be taking over Conversed's spot. She'll be joining us with a rec in a couple of weeks, since Aradi and I'll be up next week. Wish her a warm welcome in the mean time, though.

I struggled to come up with a “theme” for this post. Undiscovered slash? Old favorites? Kinky fics? One-shots only? In the end, I realized I read a pretty wide range of stories and I can’t really come up with a list to fit any one theme. Instead you’re getting a handful of things I’ve been reading recently--a mix of old/new, het/slash/poly, kinky/vanilla (okay, mostly kinky). I hope you find something that you like!

Slash Guest Author Rec - Evieeden


evieeden recommends In Public, I Call Her Sister by naelany

One of my favourite things to read in this fandom is femmeslash and unfortunately good femmeslash is often in short supply, which was why I was especially excited to be able to read In Public, I Call Her Sister by naelany. This period story is the tale of what would have happened if Rosalie and Vera weren’t just good friends, but in love as well, and the consequences of that relationship given that homosexuality wasn’t accepted in the 1930s. This one twist in character then changes our perceptions of everything in Rosalie’s history.

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Tuesday's Best 7-26-2011

Good morning, my lovelies. Hope today finds y'all well and ready for some great reads. Aradi and Conversed have found a couple of good ones and there's an announcement as well. So why don't you grab a chair, get comfy, and see what they have in store. Oh, and don't forget the usual change of panties and a towel while you're at it.


~*~*~*~*~*~

The Purpose of Life by A.J. Kelly is one of those sweet stories that focuses on the meeting and the romance and the falling in lurrrve.  This is an AU (yay vampires!) tale where human Jasper moves back with his parents in Forks, and ends up meeting the Doctors Cullen (and the rest of the coven of awesomeness).

("Wait," the crowd grumbles.  "She said it was sweet.")

(Yes, yes, it's sweet except for that whole cancer thing.)

While stories about potentially terminal illnesses are never a walk in the park, this one is obviously easier to trudge along with because we know that there could be an option open to Jasper that we'll never get in the real world.  Someone... maybe a vampire someone... could vamp him too!  He'd still have to die, but not diedie.  A brilliant plan!  It's a brilliant plan if it's offered and if it's accepted, and that ends up being the wait-and-see.  Will Dr. Carlisle and Dr. Edward manage to cure Jasper?  Will Jasper demand a vamping?

Tune in and find out!

Edward is adorable in this one because, thanks to Alice, he's known of Jasper for quite some time.  And he's been waiting very impatiently.

"I mean he was getting really annoying. Everyday he'd ask me if I had seen you, when you were coming, when he'd finally find you. I seriously considered murder," Alice said with a completely straight face that Jasper couldn't doubt. He somehow knew that Alice – if she had wanted – would have taken Edward out. "So when you finally arrived I don't think I've ever seen him so happy."

"Alice," Edward growled.

"Did you really do that?" Jasper asked Edward.

"No," Edward immediately denied. Emmett's snort from the corner, though, forced Edward to admit, "well, not that bad. I didn't ask her every day."

"Dude, you're right. You didn't ask her every day; you asked her fifty times a day. I would have fucking murdered you if I were her," Emmett said.

Edward's been waiting, and now that they finally meet, Jasper doesn't expect to live much longer.  You have to feel for the boys.  The upside is that we get a lot of Edward taking care of Jasper, and that’s always good for a warmfuzzy.

In his drowsy state Jasper felt something touching him, which was weird because he was couldn't remember sleeping with anyone. Not that his dreams were evidence of that. In fact, his dreams were filled with images of a very naked Edward. An Edward that would crawl up his body, press him down into the mattress, rock his hip against his…

"As wonderful as your dreams and subsequent fantasies are, I must warn you that my self control is already as thin as it can go. Unless you want me to fuck you, eat you, or run away, you better stop."

Jasper's eyes shot open revealing a smiling Edward. However his smile was just a bit too forced and Jasper could tell that Edward wasn't kidding about his control being thin.

"Sorry," Jasper grinned, "but I'm a growing boy and I have needs."

Warmfuzzy.  Hotfuzzy.  Whatever.

The Purpose of Life is 12 chapters and complete, so it's perfect for a summer read.  (If you don't mind a little terminal angst with your favorite iced beverage.)  Leave A.J. Kelly some love, too, because I'm an ungrateful h00r and haven't yet, but maybe I made up for it with this rec?

SlashBackSlash3.0

I like all kinds of fic. It’s not that I’m undiscriminating—far fucking from it. It’s more that I’ve been caught out by being Mrs. McJudgypants far too often already. So I’ll read a paragraph or two of pretty much any story style or pairing before making up my mind: I’ve come to love them all.

My number one source of diversity in fic absolutely has to be contest C2s, like those created each year during Pastiche Pen and AngstGoddess003’s SlashBackSlash contest.

Through contests like SlashBackSlash, I’ve found amazing fics like:

Uncomfortable by Savannah-Vee
Red Corvette by hexumhunnie311
Joy, Relief, Lust, Gratitude by SubtlePen
The Ungraceful Art of Falling by sareisle
Shifter by Adair7
Stay by avioleta

So, why am I telling you all about my poorly hidden love of slash?

This year I actually get to be Mrs. McJudgypants freals, and I CANNOT WAIT to start reading entries along with hosts, avioleta and Capricorn75, and fellow judge theladyingrey42

I. CANNOT. WAIT.

The brilliant thing about this contest is that there’s something for everyone.

If, like me, you enjoy unusual pairings, challenging stories and no guarantee of a HEA, you’ll find them in the SlashBackSlash contest. Alternatively, if Jasper/Edward true love stories are your bag, you’ll find lots of entries. If you like a lot of porn with your plot, it’s the perfect place to dip in and click a few links you wouldn’t usually hover your cursor over.

One example of a fic I never thought I’d read was InConceivable by Gallantcorkscrews. I’m an angst h00r, so this hilarious piece of almost-crack took me by surprise. I loved it.

When the Volturi arrive in The Cullens’ backyard, bent on breeding an army of newborns, it comes down to the vamp boys to do the incubating. Epic hilarity ensues.

Emmett feels a little out of his depth:

Maybe he should break the ice a little. Conversation was good. They could pretend they were just hanging out—and not building up to uncomfortable sex. Besides, if they were talking, he could stall for time while he figured out how to... begin...

"Begin by lubricating your fingers. Then prepare me. The sooner we begin, the sooner we'll be done, and in the midst of your artless humping, do be a gentleman and look for my prostate," came the brusque reply.”

Things don’t go so well initially for Daddy C either:

“A voice rose from a bedroom at the end of the hall. "Jasper—stop affecting me with emotions of disgust and inadequacy. No matter what, I am going to impregnate you. Now buck up, cowboy."
I’d like to say that things got a little easier once the guys were pregnant, but you know how it goes:

“ He thought things would revert to normal, but apparently, having your prick up someone's bum led to complications.”

Poor Em. Sigh. Making babies shouldn’t be so hard on a vampire. *shakes head*
