Revived Recs

In light of a few of our favorite wips coming back to life after what felt like decades in fandom years, The Lemonade Stand hopes to breathe life back into these classics, to essentially revive them.

These are stories that kept us enthralled while reading and stuck with us through the years and hundreds of other fics. These are stories that are classic and memorable. Stories we won't forget even if they never complete. The Lemonade Stand believes that it's never too late for a good revival. So click, click, click these links, express your LOVE through reviews, pm's-- whichever you prefer, just pump some life back into these guys and let's see if we can ultimately revive them.

  1. YES! ..... To all of the above!

  2. good lawd, I'd love see Hide & Seek completed.

  3. Thanks for this list AND for trying to make our little wishes come true!

  4. What about Innocent, Vigilant, Ordinary by Oxymoronic8
    Or Company Loves Misery by AngstGoddess003
    I would pay money to see these revived.

    1. Meee toooo, someone finish it for her,,,,please

  5. I would love to see "A May to December Romance" by Positively 4th Street finished.

  6. Yes, I'd LOVE to see "Hide and Seek" update, I love Kharizzmatik's writing; she's so damn talented.

    To add to your list (wish list) I'd also inclue "New Habits: Bad Habit, Book Two" and "La Canzone della Bella Cigna". It seems a crime to have written 45 chapters and just stopped.:( My heart breaks every time I find a story I like and it just hits a wall.:( I'm not blaming the authors; I understand they have lives and sometimes the characters don't speak to them anymore, but it doesn't hurt any less.

  7. The Guardian by Champagne Anyone, A May December Romance by Positively 4th Street and The Living Will by 2carm2carm2 would be a the top of my list to be completed.

  8. I would love to see All of Me by Flibbins finished. She had just introduced Alice to the story and I need to know who's after Bella!

  9. Love them all!! Will definitely reread them all. Thanks! :)

  10. I would love to see Just One of the Guys finished. Its one of my all time favs.
    It was written back when B+E stories had UST. I may or may not have screamed out loud when their pinkies touched, THAT'S how much UST there is in this wonderful story.

  11. I would also include Innocent, Vigilant, Ordinary by oxymoronic8, The Family that Stays Together by magan bagan, and Nice Catch by PassionforTwilight.

  12. The Guardian was one the first fics I read - and I was devastated it did not finish. One of the reasons I try to read only complete fics now. Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see it complete!

  13. You came too early updated today. I feel as if maybe this list is making a difference! Crossing my fingers for the rest.

  14. What about Burn and Shine by Pulsepoint? A superb read but just at a crucial bit, it stopped! And also gingerwombatcat's En Pointe was so exciting and funny! Hope Fliegendamsel is reading this too.
