There's one thing on my grown-up Christmas list, and while it includes a  number of specifics in varying degrees of dirtiness, it really all  boils to the one thing I've wanted for a year and a half: a do-gooder  with unruly hair and a Mister Rogers sweater, and a lifetime of nights  that would land me squarely on the naughty list.

Montana, 1000 feet above the Missouri River, was the last photo shoot before my vacation. The Cullen family, expanding the brand of their high-end whiskey, hired me to photograph their harvest.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12836834/1/CHA-OS

Dandelions by CiaraShayee
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13103579/1/Dandelions
Maybe we were fooling ourselves, thinking we'd make it. In some respects, we have. We've created a comfortable life for ourselves and our beautiful children. If nothing else, they'll be our legacy. Proof that although we weren't destined to be together forever, we were always meant to create something worthwhile. Our love story is the same as many others. It was never meant to last. Rated M

A boy with a dark gentleness too beautiful to ignore. Rated M

Hit by Destiny outtakes by OCDMess
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6850378/1/Hit-By-Destiny-outtakes
Outtakes from the story "Hit By Destiny". Rated M

In the Mist by pattyrose
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13103588/1/In-the-Mist
1959: Alcatraz - The Rock. A prison island only a mile from San Francisco bay. A prison island almost always hidden by the Bay's dark mist. They say once you're on The Rock, you can't escape. And if you escape, you'll be found. We'll see about that. A short, Halloween Tale. Rated M

Memento Mori by MeteorOnAMoonlessNight
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13099212/1/Memento-Mori
She has spent her entire existence searching for the one who calls to her from within his mind. Pushing him into accepting her only sends them on a path to destruction. When the townspeople come for her, even her abilities are no match for the sunlight that sears her skin. Chained and weakened, with her execution looming, there is only one person who can save her. Rated M

Point & Shoot by BlueMeadow
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12965796/1/Point-Shoot
Two people. Two houses. One field. Sometimes anger is so much better than sorrow.
Rated M

SoCal by Krazyk85
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10810837/1/SoCal
Being with them wasn't the problem, but losing me was. A life filled with sandy beaches and sunshine, I felt safe here. Nothing bad ever happens in SoCal, except maybe bad Mexican food. Or so I thought. This isn't your everyday love story. Based on the movie Savages.
Rated M

Swifter Than the Stars by belladonnacullen
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12562196/1/Swifter-Than-the-Stars
Once upon a time there was a girl who met a boy. She didn't want to leave home. He never wanted to go back to his. Together they discover more about themselves than they ever could have imagined alone. About stars, science, souls and young love. Rated M

The Pull by Janiedoe12
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8578100/1/The-Pull
Bella left Edward and everything she knew in Forks ten years ago. She knew he would never leave the MC, but circumstances drew her far away to accomplish her dreams. When Bella returns under somewhat mysterious circumstances, Forks will never be the same. AH. Tattward/Bikerward. Think Twilight meets Sons of Anarchy. Rated M

TMD by Ninkita
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12946091/1/TMD
"Ten inches and a missed opportunity," Alice mourned. "Never again. I'm never going to agree to date someone I meet at work. It's a disaster." Rated M

Tunes with Tony Masen by Just4ALE
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5821478/1/Tunes-with-Tony-Masen
Our late night calls were fascinating. His attitude in person was frustrating. Stupid radio host with the velvety, seductive voice. Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde? Will the real Tony Masen please stand up? Rated M

Useless Things by bicyclesarecool
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12749515/1/Useless-Things
"The useless days will add up to something...these things are your becoming." No one said that growing up was easy, but for struggling musician Bella, it seems damn near impossible. Luckily, with her friends, her music, and the hot barista across the street, she might not completely screw up her entire life. Rated M

Whispers by hereforthestories11
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11726884/1/Whispers
New in the tiny, dirty town of Forks, Edward decides to play a rumor game with the students in school. His whispers turn into something that alienates him and the local troublemaker, Bella. Rated M
