Footprints in the Snow by Cosmogirl7481-rec'd by Midnight Cougar

Rated M

Quarterback Sneak by Jayhawkbb-rec'd by Everyfreakingbody!
As a Seattle sports talk radio host, it's my job to give my opinion on the Seahawks new quarterback, Edward Cullen. But maybe I shouldn't have said what I did...you know, about his butt. Rated M
Sear by Rochelle Allison-rec'd by Everyfreakingbody!
Bella, one week into a housesitting job, has an unexpected, late night visitor. Written using WitFits. Short. Drama and romance, of course, but also... Rated M

She Gave Me Words, I Gave My Heart by Myonlyheroin-rec'd by Nic
I found her in fic. I joined her in fandom. I learned from her and about her through the words she gave, but I'd be damned if I let her slip through my fingers in real life. Rated M
The Golden Giants Tour by Walkingwithgiants-rec'd by Maplestyle
"Three months," he kept going in his deep voice. "You'll probably never be able to do this again." Three months, three continents, sweaty nights, an uncomfortable bed, ten men, a girl, and a bus. Bella Swan should have known better than to say yes. Rated M
There's a Word for It by Eiluned price-rec'd by Everyfreakingbody!
I hadn't liked 17-year-old boys even when I was 17. So what is it about Edward Cullen that's so compelling? Whatever it is, I can't afford to find out. Rated M
Trouble by LyricalKris-rec'd by Cappricorn75
Carlisle should have known Edward Masen was trouble. He was smart, beautiful, cheeky, and a sub in need of a dom with a firm hand, which Carlisle just happened to be. He was also very young, an intern and Carlisle was his attending. Trouble indeed. Rated M

Rated M
Weather With You by MagTwi78-rec'd by Suebee Betafairy
Long days are spent swimming in the river with your mates, and trying to catch the eye of the cute boy from out of town. It might be a hundred degrees in the shade, but we'll still wear silly paper hats and eat a big, hot, roast dinner. This is Christmas in Australia, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Rated M
