Whoa, when the email alert for this popped up in my inbox, it honestly took me a few seconds to realise what this was. Thanks for including a brief synopsis; I hate it when writers don't do that. Oh, and the link to your tumblr didn't work.
embones.tumblr.com :) All links to my other sites are on my profile if you are ever lost.
And you're welcome about the synopsis. I find it really irritating as well and since i don't update that often, (which I am sorry about, but life is a little busy at the moment :/ ) its the least I can do.
Thank you for reading!

Hey I'm sorry to hear that you have had problems with fanfiction. I to have an account on there and I have been hearing from a lot of authors of there trouble. I just started on this site so that I could continue to read your stories, because I prefer the uncensored raw story over the cut to pieces just because one person has a problem with it. I think you are talented author and I hate that you are having problems because I believe every author should be encouraged to write there own way and be true to themselves. I'm sorry this is or doesn't mean anything to you but I think its important. Please do not quit writing just because of one little punk who couldn't handle it. Have faith and always trust in yourself.
I thought I recognised you penname! Thank you so much for your kind words. I've been writing since I was 7 so I'm unlikely to stop any time soon because, as you put it, some little punk couldn't handle what I write. Last time I checked, this isn't Nineteen Eighty Four. Unfortunately, I've dealt with bullies like this before and I know that the best thing is to tell them to stick it and keep going with what you do. Writing on here is a way of practising for me and I still think my writing has a long way to go before it gets better, but thank you for saying that I'm talented :) its readers like you who keep my confidence up and I'm hoping that on here I'll continue to develop my writing skills.
Thank you for reading and I hope this year is good to you!

So good to find this story again. Was reading it on FF before they went puritanical and purged so many stories.
Excellent chapter, really good to know what Edward went through too, when Bella was kidnapped.

Hi. I am enjoying your story. I wanted to comment on your random fact #11. As a true American southern belle, I can explain the reasoning for iced tea. (Just in case you are wondering). In the early days of the country tea was pretty much enjoyed as in the old country. However, in the Southern parts of the US the summers could be ghastly hot so iced drinks became a way of keeping cool. Strong brewed tea, watered down and heavily sugared developed a strong following along with iced lemonade. It became a more widely popular drink throughout the country after its introduction at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair.
Fair enough! I come from Scotland where it is freezing pretty much all the time so hot tea is the only kind of tea you get.
I've always wanted to go to the Southern states of America though! You guys have amazing food and music (both of which are pretty much the loves of my life).
Thanks for reading and hope you keep enjoying it!

What is the link to your tumblr? It was erased and only said ".com"

thank you for reading!

Happy New Year, and thanks for the update!
Don't worry about not including an alternate POV for something you have already written about. If I anything about it is vital to the plot, you'll find a way to work it in. The main points you want to get across should already be covered,

This... This is pure gold! This should be publish!
I'll be honest with you...
I HATE Twilight, I hate it with all the strength of my heart!
the brilliant idea of r03;r03;vegetarian sparkly vampires seems completely absurd to me.
I have nothing against the actors in the movies ... I love Robert and Kristen; and I even love Edward , he's the prince charming every girl has dreamed about...
But PLEASE! The guy's a fucking shiny vampire!!!
Anyway ... THAT's the reason why I fell in love with your story, because you give back the honor to vampires! give back their dignity!
I look forward to the next chapter!

Its almost been a month since my last review. However there have been no story updates. More updates mean more reviews. This story has a great concept, one that I would like to know more about. Please update soon. I check for new chapters daily. Please continue with this story.

I've enjoyed reading your story and you had me hooked from the beginning. I like this Bella all snarky and outspoken:-) Definitely enjoyed hearing Edwards point of view. Can't wait to hear the rest of it. Update soon.

What was your idea behind the vampire's eye colour? Are they supposed to be like moodstones or something? I like it, just so you know. It's different, interesting and provides the opportunity for a lot more description. Simply calling them 'emerald' becomes kind of redundant after a while, so the odd 'pea-green' is nice.
I wanted to make them ethereal. Vampires are often just described as human form in shape, with the odd mention of fangs and almost always described as just very attractive...I guess I wanted to experiment a wee bit. I guess they're like mood rings: in the sense that when their eyes darken they're either pissed or turned on. Other than that, I just like searching for the names of different colour shades :)
My favourite so far has been celery.
Thank you for reading! The next update is being written.

Loved this chapter. I really like Gael; I was a bit worried that she'd just be a revised version of Victoria what with the red hair and the fact that she's a hunter. But I think she's a nice addition to this story; adds another dimension to it. And 'Vampadonis'? I can see why Edward would've rather that that name was kept private. So cheesy, like McDreamy...ha! That rhymes...

I like this! Really interesting premise, and the biology info sheet or whatever you call it that's at the beginning of the chapter is a really smart idea. Everything about this story's vampire is explained.
Just one thing, and it really isn't anything at all I guess, but I'm quite finicky about things. When Bella is talking about her truck she says ' e.g. it's a piece of shit.' It should say 'i.e. it's a piece of shit' because 'i.e.' is basically Latin for 'that is to say,' rather than 'e.g.' which means 'for example.'
Thank you! I sometimes get those two mixed up...

this is such a different take on Vamp/humans one just can't help but read it to see what's going to happen next and if Bella is going to Vastly improve in her thoughts for Edward and the rest of the Cullen's. Personally I'm hoping it's that she has an ability that will only help protect the Cullen's, something much like being a shield. We shall see what you have planned.... Thanks again for the story

"Edward was uncaring; eyes were dark, fangs protruding out menacingly. Nothing said ‘fuck off’ better." My 1st reaction was "over-reaction much?", then I realized whoever touched Bella was beyond stupid, so crush away, Edward!
"Taking the sleek device I stepped back from him, swung my arm back and hurled the phone into the lake..." Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just turn the sucker off? LOL LOL
"Edward embarrassed is adorkable" I agree that Edward with pink cheeks from embarrassment is "adorkable":::))) great word!
"Jealous? Sucks to be you." Yep, rub it in:(
"...the next, never-before-seen chapter..." That's great news!

My one question for this chapter is: Was Bella a virgin? love the story can't wait for an udate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No, she's not a virgin. Refer back to chapter 8 for details...
I'm glad you're enjoying this! I hope you continue reading!

please tell me that Bella is going to get nicer to Edward... I am enjoying the concept of the story but honestly do not see why Bella is soooooo hateful....Especially to Edward and oh, her rudeness to Esme, humrp that was just horrible.....
I'm afraid that's kinda the point...Bella is a massive bitch at this point I know but she eventually grows out of it. She's had a pretty tough time of it so far ( mother left her, living in a deadend town, grim prospects, little money, etc etc) Things get better, I promise!
Thank you for reading!

Amazingly good! You've created an alternate reality but kept the vampires, only tweaking the lore a bit. Everything about this story feels just right - so rightin fact that I didn't stop reading the updates to review! (Sorry about that one!). I love the development and the fact that you haven't had Bella jump right in the sack for Edward. She is retaining herself, to some degree, and he has to earn the right to woo the girl. Your original characters are just that - original. They sparkle with heir own unique flavor and bring it into the mix nicely. I'm looking forward to more!!!
