Bio:

It's about time that I updated my profile so here goes...


I love the Twilight universe and for me fan fiction is a really important part of that. I'm pretty open to reading any type of fanfic (wolves, vampires, canon, AU, AH, unexpected pairings, historical, futuristic...) but I am still a wolf girl at heart.


All my stories were strictly canon until recently, when I started work on an AH/AU. I currently have two works in progress, both Nessie/Jake stories. The Tracker which is canon and The Black Pirate which is the opposite. The balance between the two has been great from my point of view, and has definitely helped me to find a happy middle ground :)


If you are interested in reading my AH/AU swashbuckling historical romance, here's the link to the story on fanfiction.net:

Apart from that, I am a make-up artist, from London.  I have been taking time off work to look after my two kids, which might explain why my mind often wanders off into the world of Twilight :)

Really good, you've captured Jake very convincingly.

Summary: Edward has decided Bella needs protection. What kind of protection? The kind you can buy at WalMart. In the pharmacy.

One of the best (and funniest) pieces of fan fiction I've seen. This story is inspired.  It works brilliantly because the Cullens are written so convincingly in character, but thrown into a ridiculous situation.  It was a master stroke to incorporate Edward's well known tendancy to overthink things.  There was no need to drag anyone else into his descision making process.  As usual his desire to be conscientious proved to be his undoing.

Summary: This was an interesting picture to draw! It's suppose to be that prom picture you take with your date or friends! I figured since Jacob was there, he'd be in one of the pictures! Anyhoo, i love how Edward turned out, though i find him easy to draw. Bella is very hard to draw, and Jacob is just as challenging x_x''' I don't like how Jacob turned out! But i do love the picture, and yes, i know Bella's dress probably looks nothing like how Stephenie described it, but it's how i saw it in my head! Hope ya like!

Really professional looking. I love Bella's expression and the composition is very nice and creates an interesting story. You should feel very proud of this. Nice work :)

Really, really well done.  You managed to encapsulate all Jake's wolf anxieties in a neat one-shot.  How did you do it? :)

Jacob's dream worked very well.  It made me feel a great deal of sympathy with Jacob, who always seems to be swimming against the tide in his dealings with Bella.  Really good :)

Charlie's Fantasy by Emmy Rated: PG starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 25]
Summary: 'I imagined him in handcuffs, a terrified expression on that unfailingly smooth face of his.' Based on page 351 of Eclipse, from Charlie's perspective. Why exactly did Charlie look so amused as he stared at Edward in the backseat of the cruiser?

I really like all your paintings on this sight.  This one is especially atmospheric, really nicely done :)  I hope Stephenie kept it (she probably did, it's lovely)

I really liked this, there is a great deal of pathos in Rosalie.  And it seems very true that how someone feels on the inside, may not reflect how they feel on the outside.  Really nicely done :)

Updated November, 2009

This story is now COMPLETE!

Dark Side of the Moon is my version of New Moon from Edward’s point of view.  Witness how Edward agonized over leaving Bella, hunted for Victoria, faced the Volturi, and came to realize that with Bella was where he was meant to be. 

This tormented story has been a part of my life for about a year and a half – and what a ride it’s been!  Meant to be canon and in character, I hope you enjoy angsty Edward and his suffering during New Moon.  As unhappy as Bella was during this time, Edward suffered so much more (I think).  So be sure and crack open a fresh box of tissues before reading!

 Thank you to everyone for all the reviews, especially to those of you who reviewed each and every chapter!  Your support and loyalty have been the driving force to me getting this project finished – and I hope it’s lived up to all of your expectations.

Love you all,

blondieakarobin

PS.  As one last thank you, I’ve posted a formatted, printable copy of Dark Side of the Moon at http://bit.ly/2vLHMi, as will also post as an electronic version suitable for viewing on a kindle or MobiReader.  I’m also posting a ‘Director’s Cut’ that includes citations of all of Bella’s quotes from Twilight, research notes, and even funny comments from my betas in this version in the same directory.

Been meaning to write a review for ages and say how much I love this story.  So much that I even printed it out... all ten million pages!  This is an epic piece of fanfiction.  You have basically saved Stephenie Meyer the trouble of writing her version of Edward's New Moon.  Your interpretation of events feels really authentic and your additions fit in very well with the rest of the story. 

Thank you for writing this story, it has been a real pleasure to read (and re-read) it :)
