daintress

A thirty-something Team Switzerlander, I've been very active in the fandom in the past, but have recently written very little and read even less. After 2 years of zero productivity, I've recently begun tying up loose ends in old stories. I had 3 WIP that I'm trying to complete, and thought after that I'd be finished for good. However in finishing those stories, I've found myself thinking of others. Now I have FOUR works in progress, having completed one of the old ones and started two new... My policy in regards to my stories is that I don't post even one chapter until I've completed all the chapters. In this way, I plan never to leave a posted Twilight Fan Fic unfinished. If you've seen my stories elsewhere, it was probably on livejournal. My personal journal is: http://daintress.livejournal.com. I am also the moderator of the Twilight community http://community.livejournal.com/tm_switzerland. I hope that, if you like my stories, you'll visit the community. There are a lot of other great writers and artists who post their stories there. :) And finally, a disclaimer: I am not going to put a disclaimer on everything I post. Everything I post is fan fiction, therefore by definition, I am not trying to infringe upon Meyer's ownership of characters or the Twilight universe.

Four Related One-Shots Teen 5/5 78 4 Yes 6276
1 of 4: Meeting Mom ~ Edward remembered, too late, that his eyes were blood red these days. Her scream reminded him. 2 of 4: Family ~ His arms reached for her slim waist without any input from his brain. Her cool fingers were in his hair. This time it was her thought process that broke him out of it. He has to love me. He just HAS to! 3 of 4: A New Addition ~“I think you’ll be alright, though. You look pretty tough.” Edward said this flippantly, and then wondered at the wisdom in choosing that tone of voice. Through his pain, the huge, bedridden man SMILED at him. “Wait’ll I’m out of this bed, and I’ll show you tough.” 4 of 4: An Overdue Apology ~ "How did you know it was me?"
