Teaser - Where We Begin Chapter 4


Lusting over Emmett’s sister was the last thing in the world he should be doing.  There was the added complication that he couldn’t figure out what exactly Jasper’s angle was, though he knew his friend well enough to be reasonably sure that if Jasper was after more than friendship with Bella, he would have said something by now.

It was becoming increasingly difficult for Edward to hold onto his resolve when Bella was standing just a few inches in front of him and practically chucking rocks into the water.  She really was hopeless.

“You have to more… fling it,” he said.  Edward pulled his arm back and showed her the proper way again, not bothering to step away.  It was easier for her to see the motion if she was closer.  It was incredibly difficult to delude himself into believing that he wasn’t trying to come on to her, just a little bit, but he managed.

“This is by far the stupidest thing I have ever been subjected to in my life.”  Bella shook her head, and when Edward took a breath he was assaulted by the scent of her shampoo.  It was something fruity and tangy, and it smelled far too good.

Adoption Banners - Edward/Bella

Finally did some catch-up posting and put some stuff on the other pages. (GO ME!)  There's a couple of banners that I made for a couple of fics, and some other random stuffs.

There's also a couple of four banners I made while studiously trying to avoid both studying and writing.

Teaser - Where We Begin Chapter 3

[TwiWrite] [FFn]

Chapter 3 - June 2, 2011

Bella stilled her fidgeting when she caught sight of him, and he watched with a vague sort of amusement when she bit her bottom lip and pushed her shoulders back a bit.  He liked watching all of her tells that he’d spent hours picking out of her behavior last summer.  She didn’t scoot away when he sat just a little too close to her, and if nothing else, that was promising.

“This is about the last place I expected to find you.”

“I was kind of looking for you,” Bella said quietly.  Her smile was cautious, but it was still there.  “You know, in that sort of unconscious way where everywhere I wind up is somewhere you might be.”

“Any reason in particular?” Edward asked, and she shook her head.

“I think I just wanted to see you.”

“Then all you had to do was stop avoiding me.”  Edward’s bitterness seeped through in his tone.  He felt bad for it, but he was tired of trying to figure out what he’d done wrong, when he’d done everything she’d asked him to.

Teaser - Where We Begin Chapter 2

Bella took a sip of her soda and folded the next hand with a patronizing smirk across the table at Jasper. “Please. I'm not that stupid.”

Edward followed her lead and folded; she'd been kicking their asses all night, it would have been stupid to stay in.

“Where'd you learn to play cards so well?” Jasper huffed, showing annoyance for the first time as he gathered up the abandoned cards and claimed the anted chips as his own. Bella picked up the Polaroid camera from the table and snapped a picture of Jasper’s scowl.

“What do you think I did when I came to visit Charlie? Sit around the house with him and Emmett and paint their nails?” Bella laughed and brushed a wayward strand of hair behind her ear. “Charlie was always either working or fishing. Emmett had friends. The guys at the station taught me while Charlie was on duty.”

He couldn't help but smile at the small glimpse she allowed them of too short weeks spent with her father as a child. It wasn't something he could really explain, he just liked knowing things about her that not many others did. Something about it felt different now. An errant thought that maybe it was because this was the first time he’d ever gotten to actually hang out with her without the burden of labels. Tonight she wasn’t Emmett’s little sister. She wasn’t a classmate. She wasn’t even really a friend. She was just Bella, and he was starting to regret not ever getting to know her before.

Obligatory 'I haven't posted anything in like, a week' Post

Hey, look!  I got bored and made a new banner for Long Way Down!

Eventually I'm going to get not lazy enough to like, put it places.  Oooooh, exciting.

I'm still around, still doing stuffs... mostly for other stuffs that's not posted anywhere yet, which is why it's all quiet-like around here.  There are possible outtakes occurring, possible one-shots being pre-read.  Banners being made for fics that will go up soon...  Fun shit like that. :-)

So yeah, I'm still here.  I'm pretty sure that was the point of all this.  I think.  I don't know.

Teaser for Chapter 21 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

Are you finally ready to talk?” Carlisle asks in that way of his that leaves little room for anything other than agreement as we distance ourselves from the house. I'd been hoping to avoid this for so long, but things are different now, and I'm starting to think that I've been holding firm to some vague interpretation of this man that I concocted when I realized he just wasn't as transparent as most of the rest.

I am. What is it you want to discuss?” Seems some habits die harder than others; I don't actually want to be so confrontational, I just can't really help myself.

We could start with why you seem to be so convinced that I have it out for you.”

You've never liked me much,” I point out, just so that he knows without the shadow of a doubt that I do understand that about him, even if I don't know much else.

Carlisle smiles a bit—a sight I haven't actually seen very often—and like it's nothing says, “I'll admit I've had reservations, but you've always been good at proving people wrong when it comes to you.”

Why did you do it? Why'd you lie to them” I ask as I stand opposite him and begin the fruitless task of figuring out just what's going through his head.

Teaser for Chapter 20 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

Jasper, stop!” Bella pleads, and I take two deep and rapid breaths, desperately trying to calm myself down enough to respect her wishes.

In the end I just can't, because I don't understand why the fuck she's opposed, and I'm too wrapped up in the memories of Bella bawling her eyes out in the woods, of her leaning her head against the glass of the Jeep as we drive down the highway, and of her pinned against her mattress begging me not to leave her—but my lunge is met with air, because that pause gave Emmett the head start he needed to pull me away from Edward before I manage to snap my teeth closed at his neck.

If I were less pissed off I would have found it hilarious that Rosalie is the one restraining Edward when he tries to come after me. Instead I just snarl. “Pussy.”

Kudos to CorraCoralina for the manip!

Teaser for Chapter 19 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

The hotter my senses run, the cooler Bella's become, and I wonder if maybe there's something to this method she's chosen to reintegrate herself into the Cullens—if the bonds of family and friendship are doing something to allay her worries and turmoil. Maybe it works both ways—or maybe this is just the way Bella draws power to give herself the strength she needs to face this conflict with her head held high. She's got all these bonds lashing her down to this particular location in space and time; she has something to fight for, something that she thinks is worth it. So do I, but I can't even imagine how much she feels she has at stake, because just knowing that she's on the line here is enough to send me into overdrive.

I have no idea what Bella and Alice said to Carlisle to get him on board with this plan, but that was more of my own doing. There just wasn't a chance in hell that I was going to talk to him about it if I could help it. It's odd, to be so purposefully out of the loop. It's a price I'm willing to pay, however, because if I don't talk to Carlisle then I don't have to consider that he might try to take the battle plans out of my hands, and because after whatever their conversation entailed Alice disappears for a blissful two days. Teaching Rosalie how to do a roundhouse is so much more fun without Alice there to screw it up.

I don't haven't the slightest clue as to what Alice did to ensure the Volturi come when she deems the best time to be, but it doesn't really matter, either. There isn't anything I can do to manipulate the situation; I have to trust that she has it taken care of, no matter how much it bothers me to leave it in her hands. I have to allow a tentative belief in her words to me out in the forest when she'd said that no matter what she'd be on my side, and hope that means she's unconditionally on Bella's as well. Besides, I know Alice well enough to realize that if I had told her not to do it, she would have just gone behind our backs; at least this way I have some semblance of a heads-up.

The day comes without ceremony. It's four o'clock in the morning on a meaningless Monday when Alice returns, slamming the door on her way in to the house before she calmly tells us, “They're coming.”

Teaser for Chapter 18 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

You couldn't have done me a favor and gotten Carlisle on board so I don't have to?” I ask, wrinkling my nose in distaste at the prospect of having to have another conversation with him.

You'll live,” Bella replies dryly as she pats my chest twice, and we fall into a comfortable silence that doesn't last nearly long enough as we walk through the woods on our way back toward the house with the silent understanding laying between us that we're going to have to start talking to people about this possibility. It's more of an understanding that I'm going to have to start talking to the others.

I am beyond pleased when the house turns out to be empty, save for Esme.

Why do you like her, more than the others?” Bella asks.

It's surprising, the way that she can pick something that I consider completely shrouded out of the air and slap me in the face with it. “She's... Esme is real. She doesn't try to hide behind what she thinks the world views her as, and she doesn't pander to anyone. What you see is what you get.”

You know, you said something similar about my Dad once,” Bella comments, and I'd never actually seen that parallel until she pointed it out. Charlie and Esme, they're actually a lot alike.

I never realized how much they have in common,” I muse aloud.

Me either. You ready for this?”

Nope, but that seldom stops me.”

Now that, I had noticed,” Bella says with a laugh, and she grabs my left hand with her right and forcibly leads me toward the house. “Will you just relax? It's not like Esme is going to judge you for whatever notions run through that crazy head of yours.”

Top 25 Things that annoy the fuck out of us in a Jasper/Bella fic! By @frthelongestday & @JaspersIzzy

Top 25 Things that annoy the fuck out of us in a Jasper/Bella fic!
By forthelongestday and JaspersIzzy

Not because stories that use these elements are bad, but that they are so overdone that it’s getting old. Don’t take offense to this, because honestly, we've done most of this shit ourselves, but that being said, we can be more creative than this. And we don't need to bitch when it's not there.

1. He's always called the Major, because he's so badass. (He's not cool enough for General though)
2. He always has to be badass and can never be insecure about himself.
3. Peter and Charlotte always have to be in the story as his trusty, worshipping sidekicks.
4. Bella is always Jasper's mate and they know it only when Edward and Alice are out of the picture.
5. That he’s insecure about his scars.
6. He’s always possessive, and won't let anyone near Bella or he'll “go all Major on their asses”.
7. He always drives a truck or a motorcycle. He's too cool for a car or a heaven forbid a minivan.
8. He has to have a southern accent that is meticulously written out.
9. That he never loved Alice at all, even though she saved his ass.
10. He’s always called the God of War.
11. That Bella’s blood doesn’t call to him after they fuck.
12. Peter has to be his best friend, who bows down to him like he's... (gasp) the God of War.
13. Alice has to be evil, unless Edward is. Well shit, they usually are both evil together.
14. Even though he's all the above, he still puts together a date so romantic that Bella gives up her v-card.
15. Hobbies include: Riding horses and playing guitar.
16. He always knows what he's doing, and he's always right. Duh, because Jasper is badass, smart, sexy, wise, and apparently psychic.
17. The Major takes his Mate. Immediately. Dominantly. Kinkily. And she likes it.
18. Bella is always immediately in love with him, even though they don't know each other.
19. Carlisle will always give up his place as head of the family, because Jasper is so bad ass, no one can rule over him.
20. He always calls Bella Darlin'.
21. Peter always knows shit, and he always has to be a funny, snarky asshole. Dude, can never just… be.
22. Bella suddenly came down with the Vixen Syndrome and becomes a tigeress in bed, even as a virgin. And she always, always comes.
23. Jasper always wears cowboy boots.
24. Bella and Peter become instant BFF’s, like they grew up in the same sand box.
25. Jasper’s dicks is bigger than the space needle, but it always seems to fit.

Seriously, this is just for fun. Don’t be offended by any of this. If you can’t laugh about it, you are taking it too seriously. It’s just fan fiction.

Manip - Bikersper part 2

Teaser for Chapter 17 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

So what's the deal, you tired of fighting with me?” I prod, and the corner of Bella's lip quirks upward.

Not at all. Emmett keeps trying to give me love advice, and Esme won't let me punch him in the house. This seemed like a good solution.”

How do you know Emmett is gonna win?” I ask, even though I'm pretty sure he will, too.

I don't, but if Alice beats him, he'll call winner on our bout. I can take Alice.”

You are so deliciously devious.” I press a kiss to her hair and allow my focus to drift back to the match.

It's not long before Emmett's chest is puffed out with pride and confidence, and Bella makes slow and easy strides into the middle of the yard. Emmett's got this little smirk on his face and his posture is far too relaxed. He's not taking her seriously, so I guess it can't be said that Emmett's not going to learn anything today; he and everyone else are about to find out just how good Bella is.

I chuckle a little when I warn him, “You might not wanna go easy on her. She almost broke my arm the first time I took her out.”

I think I can handle it,” Emmett replies as he rolls his eyes at me—but what Emmett doesn't realize is that I'm the one who taught Bella how to fight, and the first thing I told her was to never, ever take her eyes off her opponent. She uses Emmett's momentary distraction to launch herself straight at him, and the look on his face when he realizes that his little sister is about to take him down is priceless.

Manip - Bikersper (I like to make up names...)

Teaser for Chapter 16 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

She may be your girlfriend, but she's my sister,” Emmett throws back, and that's when it hits me.

Oh, fuck. She's my girlfriend, isn't she?” I don't know why I never thought of it before, we've never really sought out a definition like that. I'd never even considered the possibility of labels, and it makes me a little uneasy, because I have no idea if Bella has, or whether or not she's upset that I haven't shown the slightest indication of caring. “I've never had a girlfriend before.”

Wow, I wish I had a camera,” Emmett snickers, feeling immensely cheered up by my current dilemma.


Because that look on your face should be shared with the world.” Emmett chuckles for a few moments before getting it together enough to say, “So let me get this straight. You're sleeping with her. You absolutely crazy about her. You're okay with telling us all to fuck off because you don't like sharing, and you're totally cool with the idea of being with her forever—but it's that she's your girlfriend that throws you for a loop?”

It sounds so much more deranged when you say it like that.”

You're fucking crazy. She's your girlfriend, Jasper. Deal with it.” Emmett looks like he's done talking about this, but then he surprises me by adding, “And by the way, will you just tell her that you love her already? Today's my day in the pool.”

There's so much to absorb from that one little statement, but for some reason the part I focus on is, “You've been betting on us?!”

No.” Emmett smirks. “Just you.”

New Stuff!

So, what's coming up next?  Funny you should ask....

Teaser for Chapter 15 of Bitemarks & Bloodstains

I don't see how that would do us any good at all,” I tell her, taking great care to keep my voice even and calm, so the absolute rage that floods me at the notion doesn't come bursting out.

Why not?” she asks, and she doesn't really care what the answer is, she just wants to know.

Because the next time I see Edward, I'm gonna kill him. We're not going to get another fighter out of his ashes.” There is more bubbling behind this promise than any other I've given, and not just because he ripped Bella into shreds and scattered the pieces all around the entire town of Forks, which at the very least, made my pursuit of her extremely difficult. He'll want her back, and there's not a chance in hell that I'm going to allow him to dredge up all the shit she worked so hard to get over just to be told no.

You've gotta stop killing people, Jasper,” Bella jokes, but it's clear that she's not really all that happy with my declaration. It's too bad, really.

Not until after the horde of newborns and crazy bitches,” I counter.

I hate him,” Bella confesses, her voice hard and tinged with a growl. “I absolutely hate him, and I hate that he turned me into someone who's capable of that. Just the thought of him brings back everything that happened, and I just...I can't believe I was so stupid.”

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I hate him, too.”

Yeah, but I'm the moron who fell in love with him,” Bella replies, and the funny thing is that she's really bitter over the truth of her statement, but she doesn't regret it, at all.

Was it worth it?” I wonder, tilting my head to examine her a little more closely.

There's a little bit of me that wishes that it wasn't, just so I could say that if I had it to do over again I would have stayed with Renee—but yeah, it was worth it.”
