The Ember Sword by MeteorOnAMoonlessNight

Summary: The Prophecy of The First Blood declares the Ember Sword shall be in the care of The True-Sworn for eternity—which is how long the clan will live if they can keep the enchanted sword out of the hands of The Forsaken. With the enemy bearing down on them, the chieftess and her daughters must prepare for the coming battle.

________________________________________

A few months ago, I had dreams several nights in a row that bugged me to turn them into fics. When I get an idea, I write down any thoughts or phrases and move on, but this one wouldn't let me go. I dreamed of an encounter between a princess and her servant—Isabella and Edward. They were in love with each other, but not allowed to be together, and she was about to head off to war.

The idea rolled around in my head for days. Why was she going to battle? Why weren’t they able to be together? If I let them be together, would it be illicit? I had the idea that Esme was the chieftess of a clan, and the women were all royalty. They called the shots, and the men followed their orders. It sort of snowballed from there; Edward and the other men are all attendants in the household. If a woman feels that a man has proven his courage, strength, and loyalty, she can choose him as her mate. It’s against the law for men to touch a woman or even say anything about how they feel, and the women can’t propose to a man unless he’s proven himself in a major way.

I pictured Celtic women first, then I pictured Xena, then they somewhat morphed into Viking shield-maidens, and now I have a conglomeration in my mind. They are protecting a magical sword that has been given to them to guard for eternity. A rogue clan is coming for the sword, and the warriors must cut them off before they get too close to their stronghold.

Edward has proven to be loyal, and he is strong and kind. But, he has never had the opportunity to show his extraordinary courage. Isabella is frustrated that she can’t ask him to marry her when nothing has come up to allow him the chance to prove himself. There are many close encounters where they each push the boundaries in desperation.

This snippet is the first part I wrote. It comes directly from my dream, following a rather scandalous moment in Isabella’s bedchamber before she had to join the others to leave for the battle.

________________________________________

Edward spotted Isabella and tried to come up with a reason to pull her aside. He hadn’t a clue what he would say, but he had to try something. He stood by the edge of the building and picked up a pebble, tossing it at her boot-clad feet and slinking into the shadows when she looked up.

“Edward?” she whispered.

He gestured for her to follow him and circled around the stables to the back of the main keep. When he stopped, he spun to face her.

“Isabella, please. I beg you not to go.”

Her eyes widened and she looked around them to ensure they were alone. “Don’t be ridiculous, Edward. This is what I was born to do. I’ve spent most of my life training for battle.”

He fisted a handful of his hair, his frustration growing as she refused to take him seriously. “You’ll die.”

She laughed. If only he knew. “We’re not having this argument again.”

Isabella started to walk off and join the others, but Edward grabbed her and spun her to face him. He crushed his mouth to hers and knew the only reason he lived through the moment was because she chose not to make him a head shorter.

Edward was desperate to make Isabella see things his way before she left. He would tell her with his body if she wouldn't listen to his words. He held her face and slanted his mouth over hers, taking what he didn't lawfully have a right to take. He moved his hands to cup the back of her neck firmly, changed angles, and for one staggering moment the kiss went hot and wild and threatening. She brought her fist up, gripping his sleeve for balance as he all but swept her feet from under her. One of them moaned long and low.

It only lasted for a few moments, but felt to be an eternity.

He didn't want to pull away, didn't want to let her go. He’d known for years she would taste like honey and feel like heaven in his arms. She could kill him for getting so close and personal. He knew the laws that were imbedded in every man’s brain from day one, but he had no choice. He had to take the chance and try to make her listen to him.

When she pushed him away, her face was flushed, lips bruised and eyes bright. Her chest heaved, and he waited for her to say the words that would end his life.

The Sonoran Inn by MrsSpaceCowboy

Summary: Somewhere, just off an Arizona highway in the Sonoran Desert, there’s an inn carved into the rocks. The owner and her staff are beautiful and eager to please… until it’s time to leave. There’s no way out, and beauty is skin deep.

This is not a love story.

x0x0x0x

I’m a “sunshine and rainbows with a sprinkle of angst for good measure” kind of girl. Those are the stories I like to tell. Most of the time.

Then there are plot bunnies like this one that hit with the force of a blunt object and make me WTF myself. Horror? How did that happen? Well, it started a few years ago with a contest I couldn’t write for at the time, and then, like so many of my other stories, there was a song.

So here we are.

The Sonoran Inn is not a love story. The villainess of this story doesn’t want a redemption arc. She is unapologetic, and that’s okay. This story isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay, too. There will be non-canon pairings. There will be character death—yes, major character death—because this is not a love story. The first chapter(s) will post Sunday, and the rest will follow over the next few days. We’ll wrap up on Halloween.

Have a spooky week, y’all.

They rented surfboards in Santa Cruz and caught waves bigger than any they’d ever seen at La Push or Westport. Edward’s pasty skin bronzed as the days passed, and his dark hair lightened under the sun. Girls in bikinis and moms in swim dresses approached the boys if they stayed on the sand too long, so they spent as much time as possible in the water.

And at night, Edward would take his phone and walk out to the patio chairs next to the hotel pool and call his girl to say goodnight. Once or twice, he had to soothe her through ugly bouts of vomiting and longed for the second trimester to hurry. They’d been told she might feel better then.

Edward was counting on it, because he wanted her there when he graduated from boot camp. He wanted to take her to a hotel that night and bend her over every piece of furniture in the room and then fall asleep with his ear against her belly.

He tilted his head back and listened to the waves licking at the beach, inhaled deep briny gulps of air, and stared at the stars as he listened to her talk about her days. The dirty looks. The judgmental stares.

“Fuck those people,” he told her. “We’re going places, you and me. Eventually, I’ll be able to request where we live. We’ll have beach babies and forget rainy Forks ever existed.”

“Sounds good to me,” Tanya replied. Then she dropped the phone to throw up again.

The guys pulled out of Santa Cruz early the next day and hit every beach they could until they woke up days later, shortly after noon in San Diego with eleven days left until showtime.

“I’ve got an aunt in Tucson,” Jasper said. “Ever been to Arizona?”

Edward shook his head, and they tossed their duffel bags into the backseat and hit the road instead of the waves. The sun began to sink as they sped through Yuma, kicking up dust and pointing at odd, phallic-shaped cacti and gorgeous tile-roofed cottages in every size and color. The dummy light kicked on a few miles outside of Gila Bend, so Jasper eased the Jeep off the highway at the first Love’s Travel Stop along the way.

The sky was golden pink in every direction when Edward’s feet hit the concrete next to the gas pump. He reached for it and stretched on his toes. Then he twisted his neck back and forth and grinned.

A tiny brunette in tinier denim shorts peeked around the pump and eyed him from head to toe. Edward smirked and nodded. “What’s up?”

Her red lips curved into a wide grin, and she lifted her sunglasses to rest on top of her head. “Hi.”

Edward swiped his card and waited a few moments before keying in his PIN. He lifted the nozzle and hit the button for regular unleaded. Then he waved at the cutie and followed Jasper inside to take a piss and maybe grab a candy bar.

A pleasant floral and berry scent hit him in the candy aisle a moment before a soft voice greeted him. “Where are you headed?” the brunette from outside asked after reaching for a bag of Sour Gummies.

“The clouds,” Edward replied. His eyes dropped to the edge of her calf and back up to her creamy thigh. He plucked a Snickers from the display and turned on his heel, willing his dick to cut him some slack.

She followed him through the store and over to the short line at the register. “I’m Isabella,” she said.

He glanced back. “Edward.”

Jasper saved him by cutting between them with his arms loaded with candy and sodas. “It’s going to be a long night, and some guy in the shitter said the next gas station is on the other side of the desert.” He noticed Isabella and lost his train of thought at the sight of her cleavage against the orange tank top that clung to her slim waist. He licked his bottom lip, and Edward’s hand twitched at his side.

Edward shoulder-checked his friend to turn him around so they could pay and hit the road. His head cleared the second he breathed in fresh air. The harsh smell of gasoline greeted him back at the pump. There was a small puddle next to the back tire of Jasper’s Jeep.

A tall guy in swim trunks and Chacos popped his head around the tank. “The auto-shut off failed,” he said with a shrug. “Sorry I couldn’t stop it sooner.”

Edward groaned when he saw the charges but reached out to shake the stranger’s hand. “Thanks, man.”

“Anytime.”

Isabella’s perfume danced on the breeze. “Let’s go, Felix,” she said, folding her tiny frame around her companion’s thick side. “I want to get back before dark.” Felix nodded and checked the ties on a tarp covering the back of their rusty, old pickup truck. Isabella turned to Edward and smiled. “Be careful out there,” she said. “The desert can get a little weird after dark.”

This week, we are thrilled to share an excerpt of Planetblue's new fic, Zuma. She's given us favorites like Deviant, Badlands, Artful Maneuvers and Crazy Like That and we are certain this new one will lead fic discussions for weeks to come.

Summary: He may be dating my step-sister, but it doesn’t stop me from wishing he were mine.

~ oOo ~

Once upon a time, a certain wanna-be writer completed her first fic and wondered what she should write next?

Her thoughts immediately went to a time in her youth that always fascinated her as an adult.

The 1970s.

She was just 8 or 9 when she'd watch her older siblings, their friends, and her babysitter partake in such nifty things like roller skating, socks that went up to your knees, feathered hair, and wearing satin shorts. She thought illicit smoking sessions surrounding an ashtray while you sat on the floor of your best friend's room listening to Fleetwood Mac was probably the best way to spend an afternoon.

However, a certain mustachioed biker man with an ego problem came into her life, and her dreams of the 70's were put out like a disco inferno.

She's happy to say that seven years later, that 70's story has resurfaced, and what better time of the year to give you a Southern California story set in the summer of 1978?

How about right now?

One Day at a Time and The Love Boat! Grease and Animal House! Van Halen and the Bee Gees! And let's not forget Tab in a two-liter glass bottle and Hawaiian Punch in a can you had to poke holes in the top to pour!

Boogie down memory lane with me, won't you?

~ oOo ~

The hot California sun kisses my bare legs as they hang out the window of Jacob’s car, a beat up ’67 Charger that he loves more than me, a fact we’re both aware of. We’re driving to Frosty Freeze, our daily trip for ice cream in a summer that feels like it’s screeching towards its end even though it’s just begun. I’m already late for work, but I don’t care all that much, which is basically how I feel about most things.

I push the hair flying around my face out of the way, just in time to see him in the parking lot at Zuma beach.

Edward Cullen. 

His golden shoulders glisten with salty ocean water, his old denim cutoffs lay unbuttoned and hanging dangerously low around his hips. A white t-shirt sticks out of his back pocket, waiting to be put back on. 

With his right hand he slings the yellow and blue surfboard easily under his arm, and with the left, he pulls Rosalie Hale’s bikini clad body into his own.

I lick my lips and squeeze my thighs together, knowing that in just a few short hours, he’ll be sitting across from me at dinner, eating whatever Renee makes from the helpful housewife advertisements she sees during The Carol Burnett Show. 

He may be dating my step-sister, but it doesn’t stop me from wishing he were mine.


Remember to put planetblue on alert so you can follow along with us when she begins posting!

Begin Again by pattyrose
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11972117/1/Begin-Again
Bella's life philosophies mirror her bakery-business philosophies: 1) you can't save a burned batch, and 2) there's no turning back once a batch is finished.
