Who can I blame?

Wow, apparently I suck at blogging. This is only my 5th post, and it’s been almost 3 weeks since my last... I’ve at least tried to keep up with commenting on all the blogs I love, do I get points for that? I obviously need some serious inspiration. I have all kinds of excuses: I procrastinate, I have a job, I have a life, I have kids, I’m lazy, holidays, shopping, blah, blah, fucking blah.... they’re all true... ish.

Who can I blame for my egregious lapse in posting? 
I’m going to blame this guy.  Maybe you’ve heard of him... His name is Edward Cullen.  Just look at him. Take a moment and just appreciate the miraculousness that is Edward Cullen.

Well HELLO there!

You had me at *walk into cafeteria*

You had me at *strut*

You had me at-oh who the fuck do I think I am kidding? You already had me!!!!!

I'll just ignore the girl and focus on those lips!!

Edward... Need I say more? Book or movie, makes no difference. I love him. You love him. We all love him. Canon Edward is the standard by which all men are now measured. Is he perfect? Hells no. He’s depressed, overprotective and jealous. But is he perfect for us? Yeah, pretty much.

My love of Edward may have started with Stephenie Meyer, but that is not where it ended. And since I can barely stomach non-Twilight books since I fell for Edward, I read fanfiction.  Lots of fanfiction.

There are endless possibilities. Possibilities I wasn’t even aware existed until earlier this year. Edward Cullen comes in many forms: Vampire or Human. Asshole manh00r or geek. Rich or poor. Whatever your preference, the Edwards share many wonderful (and some not-so-wonderful) qualities. Edward is protective and possessive. He is generous. He is a bit of a badass (well maybe not so much in the geekward stories). He may be new to love, but he does it with his whole heart, mind and body. I’ve always been a sucker (TWSS) for a good romance, and Edward always offers what I’m looking for.

So I offer you my favourite Edwards  (which also happen to be my favourite stories). These are the Edwards that keep me up all night reading, make me call in sick for work and generally make me ignore real life. I have read and re-read these, and will probably definitely read them again when I find the time (which is hard to do when your “to read” fanfic list consists of probably a hundred stories).

Emancipation Proclamation  This is what I am reading right now. Mmmmmmmmmmm Mafiaward. I am hooked.  At the moment I’d love nothing more than to devote all my time to this story.  I love the journey of self discovery that both Edward and Bella are on in this one.

Edward Wallbanger I fucking love Wallbanger. Whenever I check my email, it is in hopes of an Edward Wallbanger update. This story is rife with UST (which THANKFUCKINGGAWD was resolved this week in an equally sexy and hilarious fashion). Impossible not to love this fuckhawt, charming Edward.

Master of the Universe One of the first fanfics that I read. How could a woman not want Domward? Or to be completely and utterly submissive to him? Fifty-shades of fucked up? Yes, please.

The Misapprehension of Bella Swan Regarding the Inferior Intellect of Hockey Whores Hockeyward is HOT, like way hotter than any real hockey player ever is in real life. MoBS is definitely one of my favourites. This story is fuckhawt and LOL funny, all at the same time. If you aren’t familiar with the author, HunterHunting, please check her out. It’s definitely worth your time. Her story Clipped Wings and Inked Armor is equally excellent (Tattward is delish). As are all her one-shots.

Wide Awake This story is a little heavier. Both Edward and Bella have suffered serious trauma in their lives. It`s a far cry from the crackfic that I so enjoy, but it totally delivers on the Edward and Bella love story.

Osa Bella How can you not love an Edward that spends 52 years searching for his Bella?! This is one of the best stories I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Myg is a genius!!!

Did I miss any? I’m quite sure I did, but what can ya do?  Which Edwards are your favourite?


  1. It is no secret I desperately love Profward (UoEM) and Mafiaward and Fifty. I also love Human-who-wants-to-be-a-vampward in Random Angels. I've come across lots I love. I have yet to read all the stories you listed, but at least now I know I can blame Edward for it.

    Post when you feel like it--schedules and deadlines are for RL. :)

  2. @TT - I forgot about Profward - loved that story as well. I haven't read Random Angels, will put it on my list. Thanks for the rec!


Something (for me) to look forward to!
