What a painfully romantic gesture, to ink their names on their ring fingers like that! It was kind of cute, too, for Bella to remember the blackout kiss, which made Edward remember also. Funny what gets lost in a drunken fog!

Sometimes the interaction between these two makes me think of Jekyll and Hyde! Andy was so sweet to beat up Damon for hurting Bella like that, and I had to laugh when all the guys found out, except for Edward!
Date: 26 Apr 2014 7:08 AM Title: The Sixth Summer: August 2007
Kind of like Edward, I'm a bit confused. If the guys are so sure he and Bella have feelings for each other, why are they threatening him like that? It is a really twisted mess they find themselves in, that's for sure! I feel bad for the both of them.
Date: 25 Apr 2014 10:53 PM Title: The First Summer, June 2002
The tingling hum was the sign, I guess, that there was a connection between these two right from the beginning. I wonder how hard Edward had to work to convince himself that she was too young and too innocent? That's quite a facade to maintain for the better part of seven years!

I wish that Emma's first kiss was remembered more sweetly. I know that Emmett did not intentionally embarrass her and wants to protect her. But, it is going to be hard. Especially, with a mother that looks like Rosalie. I don't think I mentioned it in the traditional story of yours but I liked how you picked Kellan as the name. He is a good kid, and Bella is right she could do worse.

I don't have much to say, but congratulations to Bella and Edward. I don't know anything about motherhood and may never. Hopefully, that won't be the case. But, I thought this chapter was beautiful. Hailey is the only reason for them to miss the beach. That is ok, because that beach helped bring them together. I believe that they will be excellent parents. And, it is also fitting that Carlisle and Esme moved down there with everyone else. They ALL belong together.

Never tease a woman who is partially naked, and has chocolate covered strawberries. You will only be torturing yourself. I knew it was going to be a tattoo that they were talking about. Aww, it takes me back. In fact it takes me back 9 days ago when I got my 3rd one. lol I know that this sounds silly, but I have been tossing the idea of getting another for my husband. I've been thinking of a knot and doves. It's funny in my relationship I have 3 piercings in my ear and 3 tat, and my hubby is clean a whistle. haha Opposites attract. I get what she was saying about the stereotypical artist. The guy Luke who has done all mine is tall and very lanky. Besides his tattoos he looks average. I find it more comforting. I get Edward's pain. My first 2 tickled, but this last one (and by far largest) hurt like a bitch when it was being worked on the back of my neck. I literally had tears in my eyes. I felt bad for Bella; what with Edward's name being longer and her finger much smaller. I love how this summer instead of the guys hitting the beach right away they are baby-proofing the place! lol lol lol

I love how that skank was getting possessive over something she didn't even have in the first place. Not only that, it was Bella's party in the first place. I am glad that Bella did step in-between Jasper and Edward. Drinking and fighting never help a friendship. Even though Alistair is a pansy it was nice of her to invite him and his friends as well. Maybe it was for the best that they don't remember. Edward still had some things he needed to hear from her unconscious still.
Date: 02 May 2010 10:42 PM Title: The Seventh Summer, August 2008
Andy you truly are fucking awesome. I am not one to drop the F-bomb that much, but he deserves the honor. :) If she wants to read some about plagues, I suggest the Hot Zone and the Demon in the Freezer. Especially Demon for Damon. It's about Small Pox and Anthrax (true stories about the scare in Washington). Or the Hot Zone if you prefer Ebola. I like to keep my options eclectic. Everybody is allowed to get depressed once in awhile. Most definitely when someone breaks their heart. It's what you do about it that makes the difference. So I say... Kick Some @$$! I know that this sounds horrible. But, I own Something About Mary, and I don't think I have ever watched it since I bought it. Don't get me wrong I think it's hilarious, but I don't know why I haven't watched it since. I just read the part about the F150 to my hubby and couldn't contain my laughter. That is what he drives. I told him, I am just warning you! lol Your story is so bad for me, I love it. I wasn't surprised to see Edward so livid with that housewife. You don't like your marriage then do something about it. Apparently it's not completely for the children anyway since she called them leeches. Emmett and Edward are right though, it's usually bad to drink alone. And, that means that something is usually up. It's probably for the best that 3 out of 4 of her boys know the truth. She wasn't dealing very well, and they saw past her BS. I wonder what Edward thinks... I am sure that I will find out soon enough. I hope.
Date: 02 May 2010 9:40 PM Title: The Sixth Summer: August 2007
Damon is the devil. What Edward did was just cruel. I don't care how plastered he was that demeanor was completely uncalled for. He disgusted me. I felt bad that Bella had lied to Emmett. However, she was 21 and can stay out all night if she wants. I am really sorry that her first time sucked so bad. Even though he was cheating on her, I am glad that he was gentle with her that night. I don't care if Edward claims he didn't remember it; the fact remains he did it. I am one of those people that believe that what comes out while drunk is truly what that person means to say or do. Andy, that are no words that can be spoken or written to describe how awesome you truly are. I have that song PUMP IT and it is a great beat to get started! I bet Bella has better dancing grace than I do. lol I put people to shame and not in the good way. lol It's not a great song, but it gets the job done for the most part. Edward is an drunken idiot. Emmett didn't say you can't be with her; just stop fucking around with her. Basically get your shit together and out of your ass.
Date: 02 May 2010 8:28 PM Title: The Fifth Summer: June 2006
A part of me when I read about Edward's man-whoring felt pity for him. Anybody that whores themselves like that has no self-respect. He truly believed that this was what he deserved, and that's just not true. It was how he justified himself. That and that bull about protecting Bella from him. Even Emmett and Jasper saw it plain as day. Emmett was a great big brother to her. He cared, protected, loved, and respected her. It was so cute when Bella stepped up and asked if she could play. And, not in that aww isn't she adorable with her wanting to play with the big boys way either. Cute as in the aww she looks so innocent. It's a good thing that Edward didn't suffocate her in the game. That would have put a damper on the vacation. I am just like Bella, in the stance my petite size wouldn't stop me either. I have been know to jump on Brad's back once in awhile. And, I have been known to run pretty damn fast from security... Oops. One of the reasons that I love Bella so much and your story is that I can relate on a lot of topics. I get both panic and anxiety attacks and torture comes to mind. I could never imagine what it would be like to go through losing my parents like that. Especially to believe that I was at fault for the accident. I think her attitude the next morning in a lot of ways had to do with Edward. With his words and his presence. I am not much of a partier, but when I did, I would love to party with Bella. She seems fun. hehe By the way Praise Chorus was a perfect choice.
Date: 02 May 2010 7:10 PM Title: The Fourth Summer: July 2005
I have to give props to Emmett; that had to be the hardest thing for him to say to Bella. Seriously most big brothers did not want to have to give a safety precaution on oral sex to their little sister. In here it was Alice that informed Emmett of Caleb's cheating ways, but in the story she makes no mention of it when her and Rose speak of it to Jasper. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. I hate that she got hurt, but it was necessary to protect her. It was sweet of Edward to take the rap. Poor Bella just couldn't catch a break with the male gender. I don't think my husband gets it about the crying jag either. I hate to do it, but sometimes I can't help it when it becomes too much to handle. 9 out of 10 times it feels so much better. It was a very smart move on Edward's part to skip Heidi. Heidi can suck it. I thought it was also mature of the guys to put their needs completely behind them to help Bella. That is what family is, and they are all family.
Date: 02 May 2010 6:08 PM Title: The Third Summer: June 2004
I could honestly smack her for walking home late at night in Chicago. What the hell was she thinking? For someone so smart that was stupid of her. I digress and move on now. I am so proud (yes, I know she is fictional haha) of her school accomplishments! That is true dedication right there. You just don't see most people being that motivated anymore. It's good to know that she needs to have fun once in a while as well. Edward may not like that other boys want to be around the fair maiden. You know what? Tough Shit. She is 18 now, and no longer underage. I know that a lot of it has to be with her being Emmett's sister, his age, his experience, and his past. Sadly, all of it was holding him back. I feel truly sorry for him. Because Edward is actually pathetic for not manning up. Edward constantly running away from things never helped them at all.; not in the past or the future. Britney Spears is pretty much toxic to all young female images. Emmett was 100% right about letting Bella take care of herself. He knows that it needs to be done, and that she is a grown woman in many respects. Well, I would hope that Emmett would be respectful otherwise that is just gross. lol I like Avril; I would take her over Miley any day. I love the kiss remark about Seth; it serves them right. It was sweet of them to be concerned though. And, it is no joke about the trip to Gurnee. Believe me we haven't gone for years, but the next time we do it won't be until late! I don't care what specials they have going on. That alone would make it worse. However, Fright Fest might be worth it...! I always liked Seth, he was so sweet and lovable.
I don't think it was so much as luck that she found Edward on her couch as much as it was fate in the right direction. If only at the time Bella knew how wrong she was for Edward and her first kiss.
Date: 29 Mar 2010 7:45 PM Title: The Last Summer With FDKK
Great ending! Poor Emmett. He's always going to be worrying about one of his girls. :) I liked that Emma and Kellan came full circle.
Thanks for giving updates on everyone. I like my stories to have all loose ends tied up. :)
FDKK and these outtakes were such a great story. I am really looking forward to reading some of your other stories in the future. I have a couple other stories in my queue right now, but I'll be back to read and review.
Date: 29 Mar 2010 7:26 PM Title: The First Summer of Parenthood
My heart just melted when I read about Edward dressing Hailey in a little dress with the headband. Daddyward is so sweet. :)
This was a great chapter in that it shows that kids do change your life. You may miss out in things, but there are some rewards that can't be replaced. Like seeing your baby turn toward your voice.
Date: 29 Mar 2010 7:06 PM Title: Two Years Later: First Anniversary
Love their tattoos. I like that they'll have something always there even when they can't wear their rings.
Gotta love the drunken remembering. I am so glad they were able to remember that night. It is too bad that they had so much to drink and could have started their relationship 3 months earlier, but I like how things worked out in the end
Date: 29 Mar 2010 5:44 PM Title: The Last Summer "Before": August 2009
Love how Alice is mentioned, but never able to be around so her and Jasper don't meet for a while.
AHHH - that's just cruel! They were soooo close. Oh well, at least we do know that it was a few very short months before everything changed, but what a great little tease in this chapter. :)
Date: 29 Mar 2010 5:31 PM Title: The Seventh Summer, August 2008
Andy is awesome again!
Love the guys giving Bella a movie night to get her out of her funk.
I can just about imagine Edward coming home to Bella jumping around with a bottle of Jack singing angry country music. lol.
Ugh, they were so close that night, too. It looks like only one more summer until we are in FDKK. Can't wait!
Date: 29 Mar 2010 4:54 PM Title: The Sixth Summer: August 2007
I really like Andy in this chapter. He was a fairly minor character, but it was great to see him call Bella out on her relationship, and be someone she could talk to about it.
Another great picture of those two.
Date: 29 Mar 2010 2:22 PM Title: The Fifth Summer: June 2006
I love how E&B think they are being so cool, when it is obvious to everyone else. The 'first-grade level flirting' as Emmett and Jasper so accurately observe.
I'm with Emmett. I just want to bang their head together in this chapter. It made me so happy yet frustrated! lol
Date: 29 Mar 2010 1:21 PM Title: The Fourth Summer: July 2005
Aw, they are getting so close.
Love the boys having a 'chat' with Caleb, even if it's to force him to break up with Bella.
I'm so happy E&B are getting back to their friendship that had been missing the last summer. Sexual tension will do that in a friendship. :)
Date: 29 Mar 2010 3:06 AM Title: The Third Summer: June 2004
Wow, I totally missed the Heidi connection. It does explain her actions a little more.
Ha ha, I love all of Bella's bikinis driving Edward crazy. The girl just wants to enjoy the one week out of the year that she isn't studying, and it gets him all hot and bothered. I like that they are starting to realize they have actual feelings for each other, not just attraction. Even though we know it is still years before they act on it. :)
Date: 28 Mar 2010 9:34 PM Title: The Second Summer: June 2003
I seem to always feel bad for Bella, and not have a whole lot of sympathy for Edward. Maybe because we are seeing the evolution of Slutward. :)
Although this was a tough chapter in terms of UST, I still thought the first chapter was more emotional. I am looking forward to more summers with the sideways glances, cold showers, and sexual tension. :)
Date: 28 Mar 2010 6:34 PM Title: The First Summer, June 2002
I don't know why, but I found this outtake to be so sad. Just thinking about Bella having lost her parents so recently, and still still struggling with what that means - new city, new school, no mom to take her shopping, etc. I liked it, it was just very touching to read as she struggled to get back to herself.
Date: 26 Mar 2010 2:42 AM Title: The Last Summer With FDKK
hola me encanto gracias sigue escribiendo estas historias tann fantasticas
Gracias. Me alegro de que están disfrutando de la historia hasta ahora. Yo traductor Google para leer su opinión y respuesta, lo siento si lo tradujo extraña. Espero que disfruten el resto de la historia.
Date: 02 Mar 2010 4:01 AM Title: The First Summer, June 2002
I probably will be reading them through-out the week. I did read the next one a minute ago, I hope I did the chapter justice. I try to tell it like it is :o)
Date: 02 Mar 2010 3:59 AM Title: The Second Summer: June 2003
I am not going to get harsh on you. You told it like it was. I would like to say that I am not going to make this a bashing Edward commentary. Bella really wasn't the moron. She was a 17 yr. old who is confused, and slightly in love with her brother's best friend. It is awesome that the guys can graduated and got their degrees. However, it was a douche bag thing to do to bring her to the Beach House and then neglect her almost the whole time. Yea, I get Edward's bone-headed reasoning, but still excluding her the whole was being an ass. He is thinking about her, but he is thinking about himself more. It is about what he needs, etc... Banging every slut you see is a coward's way out, and drinking to forget is the same. I know that he is only 22, but he should have known better. There is a big difference between 17 and 22 when it comes to common sense. I am not excluding Bella's behavior completely; but she was still a kid in a lot of ways with no females to turn 2 beside Esme. To tell you the truth I probably would have gotten smashed if I heard the things she did.
Date: 02 Mar 2010 3:17 AM Title: The First Summer, June 2002
Hello! I'm back. Did u miss me? Of, course you did. It was kinda of bitter sweet. I felt Bella's pain. I can only imagine what it has to be like to go through losing both of your parents and then having your whole world turned upside. I think it was a good thing that the guys were getting her out of the apartment. I liked knowing what was going on in Edward's head at this point. Sadly, even though Edward may not understand why women compare themselves to others; it will always happen. I will say that Bella was braver than I was; because the last time I wore a suit it was a 1 piece with a shirt and shorts over it. And, I am not heavy, either; just uncomfortable in my own skin. It is hard for nearly perfect people especially men to understand. However, it is part of Bella's interior. Bella was right, he had felt the connection even then. It was a good thing that he held back though. I am sure that Emmett would have killed his bestfriend though for going after his underage sister. haha I feel so horrible that they were at Lake Michigan (I am guessing). That water is terrible. I did like that Emmett had called her out on her brave face. It's ok to hurt, and it's ok to move on.
:D Welcome to TWCS...glad you made it. I haven't pulled the fics yet because I had an inspiration day and have been writing, but I will do tomorrow. Hope you enjoy the rest of the outtakes!
Date: 25 Feb 2010 12:35 AM Title: The Last Summer With FDKK
I have really enjoyed this and bummer that it took me so long to figure out that it went with FDKK...off to read that next. I got a little confused on the change between Edward Masen and Cullen. I am guessing that gets answered in FDKK? Thanks for sharing your talent!
When they get married in FDKK, they both take the name Cullen as an official nod to the man and woman who were his real parents for the majority of his life. He had the chance to change it in his youth, but felt it was a betrayal of his father, Edward Masen. But when this opportunity arose, he decided it was time to make the change, even if he was in his late twenties when it happened.
Date: 20 Feb 2010 7:59 PM Title: The Last Summer With FDKK
Thank you for an incredible story! I stumbled across FDKK about 4 days ago and haven't been able to stop reading. You did an amazing job. The only disappointment I had was the fact that you didn't use any Muse songs anywhere in the story as heavily as it relied on music. Other than that...GREAT JOB!

bless emmett and his bikini trials go back 20 yrs and he had the same thing with bella lol and bella is still good at calming emmett down bella spoke a lot of sense when she had that chat with emmett (i love that she still uses his nickname) i try to parent like that teach rightfrom wrong and hope your children make good choices but be available for advice and pick up the pieces when needed, and again we get to see how well all the couples get on after all these years the couples still live closeby and have their annual beach holidays together, bella and edward are still so very much in love and that shows, every body is having a good life and you can never beat a hea, especially for this lot, so thats it no more fdkk i feel a bit sad and all i did was read it you actually wrote it, but on a good note like you say you have some new stories to capture your heart, thanks its been a fantastic read and yes i enjoyed the ride and i hope you enjoy posting on this new site tracy
Date: 18 Feb 2010 7:23 AM Title: The First Summer of Parenthood
hi just read your notes over on ff i was reading the outtakes there b/c there not available on twilighted yet, then read your profile page which let me to your blog (not sure if yours but you know what i mean) lots of info to try and process you really are working hard to solve this current situation on ff but it seems the petition will not work? if i got it right ff cant have a ma/nc17 because the site is directed at teens as well as adults but places like twcsl and twilighted can have those ratings as we sign up first and read warnings about age? and the original published authors dont want their characters associated with adult content on a site advertised for teens? i believe twilighted have opened a teenagers section on their site now they manage to combine the two, i hope ff can consider putting in some kind of registration process just for the higher rating stories or at the very least shut down the lu and their very bad practises, cause the last thing any body want is to see an end to twilight fanfiction that would be disasterous, i think this site is taking off quite quickly so you might get the traffic volume afterall. also b'c i followed you on twilighted i never realised the amount of stories you have written i'll look forward to reading them as i do enjoy your writing sorry after all that on with the review edward seems to be in awe of his wife and the beautiful gift that is his first born(first of many) child the way he sat at their feet watching his daughter feed from his wife that was a beautiful scene, a fab update and i liked their private time down by the lake even though they couldn't go all out they still wanted to connect and pleasure eachother to remind each other they are still wanted and desired, thats how i see those kinds of lemons quite beautiful (and the lu should too and leave us alone) so9rry this is so long and you not fed up reading it thanks tracy
Yes to everything. I've heard though the grapevine that there's an adultfanfiction.net. I'm not sure if it's from the same people or not, but perhaps that was their answer ages ago. I'm glad you found me here and are interested in reading my other stories. I look forward to reading your thoughts. I hope you enjoy them. Thanks so much for all of your reviews in all three places! I'm such a review whore! LOL! That's why I'm having hard time letting ffn go. Rofl! Anyway, thanks again and I hope you enjoy it here. I'm beginning to post flyboy on twilighted, but my new Jr. V Beta is not as speedy as SW was....she also seems to be a bit pickier. So I'm not sure how long it will take to catch up there. I've also not heard back from SW. I sent an email the other day asking if I could add the outtakes to the end of FDKK and if she would validate if I did or if I had to put up a whole new post...which would mean three more weeks waiting to get through the initial queue. That's why I like it here. All the perks of twilighted without the annoying wait!
Date: 18 Feb 2010 4:18 AM Title: The Last Summer With FDKK
I've decided to review from here to support your move here.
I'm sad this story is over, I loved every minute of and I it was so wonderful to see them all still getting together as one big huge family. FDKK started out as Bella & Emmett loosing her parents and ended in the most happiest time of her life with so many special people in her life. In my opinion the lemons you've written in this story were integral to the story line but were not exessive or gratuitous at all.
Thanks for the great story!
Thank you so much. I really appreciate the review and the support!!!
