Loved the way you wrapped this up so neatly. It was a blessing for Bella to be able to watch over Charlie and to watch Angela's family grow. I think you did an outstanding job with this lovely story!
Date: 31 May 2013 5:38 AM Title: Fusion
I truly hope no one hated on you for this is a really great story. You did a hell of a job showing us all another possibility. Edward and Bella and all the other Cullens are some of my favorite people!

Sure, I can't help but feel sorry for poor Ronald, but sadly, someone had to die, besides Bella that is. She and Edward are going to make it together, after all, they have forever! Cute place to stop, they didn't mind Emmett's vulgarity, but couldn't take Esme's sweetness. Who wants their mom to hear them making love?
Date: 31 May 2013 3:54 AM Title: Devotion
I think you handled that perfectly, and you're absolutely right about the necessity of her doing the awful deed. It's the beginning for the both of them and I'm so glad they finally have a start!
Date: 31 May 2013 3:40 AM Title: Emancipation
That was just plain heartbreaking! Poor Charlie, poor Bella, hell, poor Edward ! Let's hear it for Carlisle's bed-side manner.
Date: 31 May 2013 3:32 AM Title: Desperation
That was a very close thing, between Bella and Jasper. More important was how Edward nearly forced himself on her. And most important of all, I'm afraid that pounding on the front door is Charlie! What a mess this is turning to!
Date: 31 May 2013 3:21 AM Title: Perception
My only thought was, oh shit! Sorry about that! What in the world is Charlie going to think? Did he even get a good look?
Date: 31 May 2013 3:13 AM Title: Attraction
Two steps forward and one step back, way to go Edward! Big dummy vampire! I hope Alice tells him what a dork he just was!
Date: 31 May 2013 3:02 AM Title: Progression
I think Bella really appreciated Edward going to her dad's and bringing back her beloved books, favorite jeans and the album and diary. He scored major points by respecting her privacy and not reading the diary.
Date: 31 May 2013 2:19 AM Title: Desolation
That was so sad and painful, the exchange between grieving father and grieving lover. Wonder what's in the box that Charlie didn't mind parting with?
Date: 31 May 2013 1:01 AM Title: Fabrication
I'm so encouraged that Bella let Edward into her room, and listened to how they staged her death. I wonder how this conversation with Charlie is going to go?
Date: 31 May 2013 12:48 AM Title: Convocation
Good goirl, I kind of wondered what the official story was myself. That was so sweet when Alice told Bella what would happen at the servise, and even sweeter when Edward tols her about Angela and Ben and how he had listened to her talk in her sleep!
Date: 31 May 2013 12:29 AM Title: Intoxication
Interesting! Edward's playing reached Bella in a way she hadn't expected. It showed her a very different Edward than the one she's been so angry with. Then, the big test to see how she could resist human blood. Guess it's pretty good it only took her three hours to control herself around the wonderful smell.
Date: 30 May 2013 11:28 PM Title: Compunction
Perhaps with the help of his family, Edward can win back his Bella. Reading Charle and Carlisle on the phone was pretty sad , no wonder Bella cried.
Date: 30 May 2013 11:17 PM Title: Friction
Pay attention to her , Edward, she means it! Don't think with that head, use the one on your shoulders instead. The guy is going to really, really be patient!
Date: 30 May 2013 11:08 PM Title: Assumption
Bella and Emmett had a pretty good day, all things considered. Too bad Edward didn't ask her what kind of car she wanted to drive! That could have earned him points and he blew it!
Date: 30 May 2013 10:39 PM Title: Assimilation
Another little something they forgot to tell her , no more sleeping! I'm kind of glad they aren't going to Denali, but not nearly as glad as Edward is , I'll bet! Bella's room sounds very nice and I'm sure Alice has her closet stuffed with things she'll never wear.
Date: 30 May 2013 10:24 AM Title: Connection
Well, at least Bella likes the new way she looks and doesn't blame Alice for what happened to her. It really was all Edward's fault for losing control and biting her before asking if it was what she wanted.
Date: 30 May 2013 10:12 AM Title: Realization
That's a pretty good start, him telling her about himself and his family. I think he may be going about this the right way. Hope so anyway!
Date: 30 May 2013 10:02 AM Title: Confrontation
There's at least a bit of hope in those words, not yet. Maybe she can forgive him some day. Let us all hope so!
Date: 30 May 2013 9:53 AM Title: Consumption
Kind of don't blame her in a way for feeling ambivalent, angry and wanting all at the same time. I think Edward is going to have to do some major groveling, and it may take a long time.
Date: 30 May 2013 9:42 AM Title: Saturation
Hearing whose home this is should piss off Bella a whole bunch! She seems a bit volatile right now and may not appreciate anything Edward has to tell her! This situation is overwhelming to say the least!
Date: 30 May 2013 9:31 AM Title: Explanation
Poor Bella, this was exactly what I was afraid of , that being unprepared, she is having a hell of a bad reaction. She may never get over the way she was changed! Too bad, too, because he didn't think beyond the fact of how much he loved her and she loved him!
Date: 30 May 2013 9:20 AM Title: Transformation
Jasper has been a great support to Bella as she changed, but nobody has yet said the words. Why has no one told her what she is now? Anyone think she's going to be rather upset, perhaps? That's the reaction I'm betting on!
Date: 30 May 2013 9:11 AM Title: Transition
I see now what happened, he was carried away, as was Bella. The problem is going to be that he never explained what he was and what he wanted. When Bella said forever, she didn't really understand that Edward's forever was the real deal! Now I hope she doesn't hate him for doing it this way!
Date: 30 May 2013 8:56 AM Title: Reflection
Seems to me Edward got a little carried away with his time table, he was thinking it might take Bella a while to accept his love and him. Then first thing out of the box, he bites her. Hope he can make this work!
Date: 30 May 2013 8:47 AM Title: Possesion
I see now the reason for the title of your story. The choice to love Edward is definitely going to have consequences!
Date: 30 May 2013 8:31 AM Title: Preparation
How very disappointing to go to the party to see Edward and him not be there! At least Angela is happy to see Ben, so all is not lost. Though, I am curious as to who just locked the door and why?
Date: 30 May 2013 8:16 AM Title: Fascination
This girl has got it bad, and Edward is all she can think about! Makes me wonder what he thinks about her?
Date: 17 Aug 2012 3:03 AM Title: Epilogue
I loved this story! It was original and well written, and I read it start to finish in one sitting. Hard to put down. For once, a version of the original that I didn't know how it would play out.

tears are falling at this ending. After the awesome journey you took me through I am proud to say that you are the few authors to get me to cry at the end of the story. Thank you for such a great story. :~)

Good story. Although I couldn't help but feel a bit sorry for our sweet Edward at times. I even remember yelling at Bella a few times during my read with a few choice words of my own. And the feeling of contentment when Bella finally forgave Edward. That to me is the sign of a good writer. Kudos to your talent.
Date: 30 Jun 2010 12:17 PM Title: Epilogue

The construction, with the twists and turns, was great.
All feelings of anger, frustration, sadness and joy were drawn beautifully, eilciting intense emotions.

Truthfully, though I love the poetic voice of your writing, the rapid development is not what I expected in this story, and as much as it pains me to tell you this, has turned me away from any continuation. Maybe in later days I'll attempt to finish reading this, however not now.
Date: 13 Feb 2010 1:48 AM Title: Possesion
This chapter seems a little rushed, and a little early in the plots development. For example the confession of love. Love is a big thing. Something that would have perhaps been more effective if Bella had pondered it on her own, if this was left as an abrupt interaction. For example;
(my adaptions are in bold/strikethrough)
I froze, listening, but heard nothing. The seconds ticked by as I stood, rooted to the spot waiting. Finally, a velvet, familiar voice broke the silence.
“Come here often?” he chuckled.
I spun around, eyes wide, breathing stilled. Then my heart melted at the sight before me.
Edward stood, leaning against the closed door. He was dressed casually in a light colored t-shirt and faded jeans. His feet were bare. Definitely not date attire, but perfect regardless. He smiled playfully as he pushed off from the door and took a few steps toward me.
“Edward….I …Uh…was looking for the bathroom and saw the moonlight…and…” Suddenly, impossibly, he was right in front of me having crossed the room before I could blink. His long finger came to rest against my lips.
“Shhhhh,” he lowered his hand. “It’s alright love. I knew hoped you’d come.”
He what? Knew Hoped I’d come? Love? My head spun with a million questions, but as I saw the way the soft light danced in his liquid eyes, I was transfixed, intoxicated. I struggled for words.
“I… thought you weren’t here. Alice said you were out.” I stammered.
He sighed, carefully formulating his response. “I had something to take care of, so …I could….be here.” My mind was hazy, but didn’t miss his emphasis on the last word.
I gathered my courage. “I’m glad you’re….here” I admitted .His perfect brow furrowed, he looked apprehensive.
“I’m different Bella,” he pleaded. “I’m not like you”
“I know” I whispered, willing him to hear the acceptance in my voice. His eyes narrowed, studying my face. Then he sighed deeply and grabbed the hem of his shirt. He paused for a moment, and then pulled it up over his head. In one fluid motion, it fell to the floor beside him.
“I am different Bella…but I can’t stay away from you.” His eyes begged me to understand. All I could think about were his lips, moving just a few inches from mine, his cool breath fanning across my face. I always knew Edward was different, and in this moment I didn’t care. I would never care. His sincerity rang true in every word he spoke, and his eyes held the answers I sought.
“So don’t,” I replied, hardly more than a whisper. My body was burning with desire and his scent surrounded me, washing over me more with each word he spoke. He smiled gently, closed his eyes and tenderly touched his lips to mine, pulling back after a very short moment searching my eyes again. That short kiss ignited the fire in me, and the pent up flame flowed freely through my veins. I roughly pulled his lips back to mine, kissing him with all the passion I held for him. He moaned against me, responding by pulling me even tighter against his stone body. My hands fisted in his hair, pulling him closer, desperate with passion and need. His lips broke away from mine to hungrily travel down my neck, and across my collarbone. Abruptly, he pulled away taking my face in both of his large hands, his eyes fixed on mine were black now, and wild with desire.
“God Bella, I want you.” His voice was thick with need. "But I can't have you." Then he was gone.
Just a thought, with Edward not surrendering to his desires it would portray a stronger, more determined plot this early on.
Date: 13 Feb 2010 1:40 AM Title: Preparation
Amazing, once again. Your writing remains well thought out and constructed. In this chapter it is obvious to the searching eye that you have revealed more subtle hints in concern to Edward's character, his habits, behavioural traits, etcetera.
I love how you have portrayed Angela, no longer as the shy, girl, instead she's warm and inviting towards Bella, a true friend in this day and age.
Date: 13 Feb 2010 1:34 AM Title: Fascination
Amazing words. You are very poetic, yet understated in your descriptions. Thus your writing is shown as very classy, even the more provocative scenes.
I love how you haven't attempted to re-characterise Bella yet, nor Edward. Both remain intact with their original composition, however Bella with more confidence in her own mind - even though it is not recognised to society - and Edward is more of the apparent gentleman, rather than the selfish-acting vampire.
Date: 10 Feb 2010 3:44 AM Title: Devotion
I think you were absolutely right. I love that you had Bella struggle with her bloodlust. I never liked the idea that she just skipped the whole new born phase in Breaking Dawn. You've done a great job portraying that bloodlust and keeping true to how intense SMeyer intended it to be.
You were totally right. I don't think she would've ever gotten past her issues with Edward if she hadn't lost control and taken a human life. Honestly it would be easier for her to resist someone she loved like Charlie or even Angela because of how much she loved them.
I'm so glad I caught this on the random stories and took the time to read it. I'm thoroughly enjoying it and can't wait for your next chapter.
Date: 10 Feb 2010 3:27 AM Title: Emancipation
Bella's pain just about killed me in this chapter. You do a great job portraying exactly what she is feeling. Again, I still wonder where Edward is. He could even be at her memorial where they planted the tree.
Date: 10 Feb 2010 3:14 AM Title: Desperation
I cringed when I reading the lust consuming them. OMG, I just knew some how, some way that what was building between Bella and Jasper would come out. I'm glad she didn't give in to Edward. I just wonder if he is wondering the forest or if he went to their house.
OMG, the last line once again has me so thankful that I don't have to wait for the next chapter.
Date: 10 Feb 2010 3:01 AM Title: Perception
Oh shit! Did Charlie see her and recognize her? I bet Alice freaked out when she saw that happen. I'm so glad I don't have to wait for the next chapter :)
Date: 10 Feb 2010 2:51 AM Title: Attraction
OMG, Edward, did you really sit there and remember with a smile being with another female? If so, good luck digging your way out of this one.
Date: 10 Feb 2010 2:31 AM Title: Progression
Hmm. It's interesting to see Bella feeling the pull to Edward but resisting because she's stubborn and he still needs to suffer for taking her choice away. I'm so proud of our little Eddie for doing something so sweet for Bella just to make her happy and have a piece of home.
Date: 10 Feb 2010 2:07 AM Title: Desolation
Charlie really made me tear up. That was so true to character for him to try to comfort Edward. Great job with Charlie :)
Date: 09 Feb 2010 9:01 PM Title: Fabrication
Edward's slowly chipping away at that barrier Bella's thrown up between them.
I teared up when Edward called Charlie at the end.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 8:45 PM Title: Convocation
I liked how you were able to give Bella closure with her mother. I never thought that Bella mourning her humanity and the loss of her family and friends would bring her and Edward together. I love that I can't predict what you will do next.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 8:28 PM Title: Intoxication
I like the way you have them working on her control. I never thought to do it that way.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 8:09 PM Title: Compunction
There's nothing better than a big brother Emmett.
I never thought about Carlisle feeling responsible since he's the one that created Edward. I'm glad you aren't making Edward a wallowing mess. I have a feeling that would just piss Bella off even more.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 7:47 PM Title: Friction
Damn! I didn't even think about Rose and Em starting up the sexing already. I should've though. Those two wouldn't be able to keep their hands off each other for very long.
I love Edward's parting thoughts :)
Date: 09 Feb 2010 7:32 PM Title: Assumption
I loved the play date with Em and Bella. What a cool way to learn about being a vampire.
One of these days Edward will learn not to force his likes onto Bella. *shakes my head* Silly vampire.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 7:19 PM Title: Assimilation
I saw a small breakthrough with Bella realizing that Alice is truly happy to have her there. I guess it will take a while for her to realize that the rest of the Cullens are just as happy.
I'm glad Bella graciously accepted Edward's gift. I have a feeling they will be taking two steps back when Bella finds out how Edward knows what music she likes.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 7:03 PM Title: Connection
I love Alice. I can see her and Bella scheming together to find ways to make Edward work for Bella's forgiveness and love.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 6:47 PM Title: Realization
I knew those Biology notes would come back up. I'm glad she was able to laugh about all that.
At least Edward is listening to her and understanding her issues right now. He was smart to throw in the if you choose at the end of telling her she had a home with his family.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 6:35 PM Title: Confrontation
I wonder how long Bella can drag out her anger at Edward for taking away her choice.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 6:13 PM Title: Consumption
I figured they would end up in each other's arms, I just wasn't sure how far Bella would let it go. It kills me to see Edward hurting, but at the same time I think he does need to suffer a bit for changing Bella the way he did.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 5:58 PM Title: Saturation
I knew it was killing him to see Bella relying on Jasper and asking for him.
LOL, why do I have a feeling that Edward will be in the dog house for quite a while so to speak. I don't think Bella seemed to happy that it was THEIR house.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 5:43 PM Title: Explanation
My heart is breaking for Bella. This will definitely take a while for hera to get over. If she will. It has to be killing Edward to see Bella so hurt and angry and turning to Jasper for comfort.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 5:30 PM Title: Transformation
From that chapter I fear she will harbor feelings for Jasper that she shouldn't. Oh my, that could be very bad. I can't wait to see her reactions to everything now.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 3:06 AM Title: Transition
I feel sorry for Edward, but I don't. I have a feeling Bella would've willingly wanted to change if she had the option. I have a feeling he will have to work to gain her trust and forgiveness for taking her choice away from her.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 2:38 AM Title: Reflection
That was an interesting look into Edward. I still wonder if Alice saw him changing her or if that was a snap decision on his part.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 2:04 AM Title: Possesion
I can totally see Edward not being able to resist Bella so he would take her and then turn her. I have to wonder if Alice saw the way it all would end.
Date: 09 Feb 2010 1:35 AM Title: Preparation
LOL. I totally lost it when Edward sniffed his notes. That was greatness.
Yay Angela for saving Bella from Mike.
I love that sneaky little pixie for sending Bella to the third floor. I would say it is Edward that closed and locked the door. I'm not quite sure how your Edward will react so I'm excited to see what happens next.

Oh Edward - what have you done?
I can understand him, but it must be really hard for Bella. The original character was able to get to know him and his secret. It must be a little bit to much for her at the moment, but I hope that Bella will remember her feeling for Edward, she had before the change.
Now I have to continue reading ;-)
Thanks for the review!
