Up on the Rooftop by Marvar

New Girl by LyricalKris
iving with three guys was never going to be without drama. Jasper and Emmett were easy, but Edward was a little harder to enjoy. Bella guessed he was hiding a secret behind that abrasive exterior, but then again, so was she. A collab with EveryDayBella.
In Every Life (A Little Snow Must Fall) by cosmogirl7481

He Said, She Said by araeo
Boy meets Girl and sweeps her right off her feet – which just happen to be slightly slutty when it comes to a certain tall, dark (and slightly gingered) piece of walking sex, who decides to pursue her without mercy. A fluffy novelette about a girl who does something questionably stupid, yet lucks out incredibly by finding her Mr. Right. All human. Utter nonsense.
Iteration: The Perks and Pitfalls of Talking Too Much by m81170
Jobless, penniless, college dropout Edward takes a chance on a Craigslist job listing to be the face of Jasper's new company. An unlikely friendship blossoms over pancakes and ketchup but is tested when a saucy new waitress catches Edward's eye. Too bad she's the press, and Edward can't afford to be scooped. Life is hard for an ex-Russian-Literature-Major turned professional liar.
Rest My Soul by MrsSpaceCowboy
On opposite corners of Third Street and Beale, two lonely people fight to stay that way. Her scars are on the surface, soft on her skin and in her eyes. His run bone-deep, seeped in bourbon and blues. EPOV.

The Best Mistake Of All by MrsK81
Living the perfect life with no cares or responsibilities suited Bella just fine, but her family had other ideas and all of a sudden everything was changing... and not necessarily in a good way. One last night out, one quick escape through a bathroom window, one assumption about her new boss plus so many other things proved to be one mistake after another or so it seemed.
A Christmas Partnership by Lost In Fanfiction
What happens when Bella resorts to unusual methods to catch the attention of Edward, a shy and slightly oblivious co-worker?
The Brightest Star by chocaholic123
Porn stars, suburbia and Christmas lights. Sometimes the brightest star shines in the darkest places. And sometimes you're so blind you can't see it. E x B AH and full of smut. Happy Christmas from me!
A Southern Gentleman by Mrs. Brownloe
Honor, duty and gentility were the guiding principles of a southern gentleman. So, there was only one thing to do when Edward discovered the truth of something that happened long ago, something he was honor-bound to repair if it took him the rest of his life.
Tommy by HelloElla
They were just kids, growing up much too fast. When life felt like a deep & freezing ocean in which they drowned in, they saved each other every single time up until she disappeared the night of their high school graduation.

Santa And The Bearded Elf by MrsK81
Santa, a bearded elf, a closet, and the most amazing kiss... definitely a good deed with a difference for Bella Swan. But what if her Santa turned out to be someone a little closer to home, maybe a little too close to home? How does she tell him who she really is? A fun, little Christmas story with daily updates finishing on Christmas Day.
The Second Time Around by anhanninen
One call changes Edward Cullen's life, giving him a second chance to be the father he always imagined. Piecing together his broken daughter isn't easy, and he soon realizes she needs more help than he can offer. His daughter comes first, but feelings can't always be controlled and he might just find another second chance he didn't count on. All Human.
Look How You Turned Out by counselor
If I was going to write another story it would be something like this...
Shelter by Marvar
Two people. One night. No power. Can two people fall for each other as they seek shelter? Rated M because Edward has a British accent and wears suspenders. My birthday present for Cosmogirl7481.
The Donor by alchemilla mollis

She deserves better than what I can give her. She deserves everything. AH
