And Now Something Completely Different

Hi, Naughty HisBella here!

I wanted to say Thanks to all of you who have stopped by our little blog. I'm sure I can speak for all the girls when I say we appreciate it and hope you stop by again and again...

And Now something completely different,

We're all fan fic readers right?  Well, I hope you'll all be interested in a new fic known as "A Little Motivation."

This WIP is written by Laureate04 and myself under the pen name "NaughtyLaureate".  We just posted the prologue on ff.  You should be able to search for it tomorrow.

Laureate has previously written "Somewhere in Brooklyn" ( and is one half of the amazing duo "PervyTwins" with SassyKassie. They brought us "Drunk on You", which started out as a one shot for the "Fic this Gif Anon" contest and expanded to a full length after the contest. You can read it here if you haven't already!

Laureate and SassyKassie are betas on something that I am writing. One day, Laureate and I got to talking  and came up with "ALM" based on some photos of Rob Pattinson at the Apple Store in London for his Cosmopolis promos.  We've been planning this one for months and are really excited.

Here's the summary: "He's a Motivational Speaker without motivation. She's a lonely woman who thinks he's hung the moon.  A chance meeting in a hotel lobby may change both their lives forever...with A Little Motivation."

We hope you'll give it a chance. We are going to try our hardest to make it funny, a little naughty and keep you interested in our Edward and Bella.

Please leave a review and let us know what you think!

Happy Reading!

Breaking Dawn Read Along: Week 8

And...this is it.  The last post of our read along.  Next week, we can talk general giddiness about the movie and what we're excited to see, but for now, let's discuss chapters 38 and 39:

Chapter 38:

  • Chelsea and Jane try to break Bella's shield, but it doesn't work. Bella's shield even withstands Alec's powers.
  • Seeing the anger and confusion in the Volturi's faces, Bella realizes that they might have a chance to win against the Volturi if she can incapacitate their offensive forces.

    I would be the number one priority, the first one to die, but as long as I held, we were on more than equal footing with the Volturi. (38.38)
  • As the Cullens and their witnesses divide up their respective enemies among themselves, Aro makes a last offer to the gifted vampires on the Cullen side to join the ranks of the Volturi. Thanks, but no thanks.
  • The brothers vote. Marcus and Caius are divided, so the decision to fight is left to Aro. He restates his concern that he gladly would leave in peace if he could be absolutely sure that Renesmee will not pose a danger for the future.
  • As if on cue, Alice unexpectedly returns with Jasper, and with three other vampires in tow. Alice introduces one of the strangers, a young man, as Nahuel. It turns out he's a half-human, half-vampire hybrid, just like Renesmee. Unfortunately, his human mother died while giving birth.
  • Nahuel reveals that he has three sisters, and that his vampire father is planning on producing more hybrids to create a super race. Although Nahuel is venomous, his sisters, like Renesmee, are not. He also explains that he reached maturity seven years after his birth, and that he hasn't changed since.
  • Nahuel's evidence prompts the Volturi to drop their charges and to instead go after Nahuel's father to stop him. They leave.
  • The Cullens and their friends erupt in cheers. Bella is overcome with joy at the turn of events:

    Happiness expanded it like an explosion inside me – so extreme, so violent that I wasn't sure I'd survive it. (38.172)
Chapter 39:
  • Celebrating the victory, Edward explains that it was a combination of things that led to their success, but really it all boiled down to Bella's powerful shield. She saved the day.
  • But he mentions that although the Volturi's confidence is shattered, they might come back one day. Their friends promised that they will all stand together against them if that time comes.
  • Edward and Jacob have now officially become close friends, and Bella and Edward have made peace with Jacob imprinting on Renesmee.
  • When the Cullen friends leave to return to their covens, Nahuel, the vampire hybrid, and his companion stay. Nahuel keeps staring at Bella, which makes her feel uncomfortable. When she tells Edward, he explains to her that it's because she is alive:

    He's always thought of himself as an evil creation, a murderer by nature. His sisters all killed their mothers as well, but they thought nothing of it. Joham raised them to think of the humans as animals, while they were gods. It shaped his whole perspective. And, in some ways, he truly hated himself. (39.91)
  • When he saw Bella, Nahuel realized that being half immortal doesn't mean he's inherently evil.
  • Bella's excited to see Charlie again. She's happy that he found a great match in Sue Clearwater – the werewolf's mom with the vampire's dad.
  • Most importantly, Bella is happy that she'll be with Edward, forever.
  • After they put Renesmee to sleep in the cottage, she reveals to Edward that she's been practicing her ability to push her shield outside of her mind. For the first time, Edward is able to read her thoughts and experience how much she really loves him. "No one's ever loved anyone as much as I love you," she tells him. "And then we continued blissfully into the small but perfect piece of our forever."
Ok, first off...ALICE AND JASPER ARE BACK!! Yay, tricksy little pixie!  (Hey, that rhymed!).  Nahuel arrives with them and they save the day by basically sending the Volturi after someone who is actually doing something they're not supposed to.  

Who do you think really saved the day?  Bella with her shiled?  Alice and Jasper for bringing Nahuel back?  Aro for making the "final" decision?   Were you all as disappointed as I was when reading that all this lead up led to a non-battle?  

Jacob and Edward as friends...and soon to be in-laws.  How adorable.  I do love the growing J/E connection that started with the at least partial understanding in the Eclipse tent.  

Charlie and Sue!  I'm happy for them as well...and who would have expected the 'supernatural parents' to get together.  Just keeping it all in the world of understanding, I guess.  

How do we all think they're going to end it?  Will it be another vision like Bella had during the transformation, except of E/B moments?  Do you think it'll be something else?   Just a vision of her conviction somehow?  Who's ready to see Edward's reaction to FINALLY getting to 'hear' Bella?  More vampire sex?  Haha....leave your thoughts...

Welp...that's the end of the re-read.  I've got a post coming early next week for us to get pumped up for Thursday/Friday!  Hope you all had fun and enjoyed re-immersing yourself in the world of Breaking Dawn...this is it ladies...but of course (since it all comes back to Rob...) many more years of following our man's career to all kinds of new heights! 

Thanks again to shmoop for the great summaries and saving me the time of writing them myself.

Breaking Dawn Read Along: Week 7

It's getting to be like camping in here....intense (in tents...).  Haha, get it?   (Sorry, that's one of my hubby's favorite puns...and it's slipped into my everyday vernacular..).  Anyway...on with the show.

Chapter 36: 

  • The Volturi arrive in rigid, perfectly synchronous formation, "a dark, unbroken shape that seemed to hover a few inches above the white snow, so smooth was the advance" (36.2). They show no surprise at the collection of vampires and werewolves before them.
  • Bella counts thirty-two Volturi against nineteen fighters on the Cullen side. Behind the Volturi, more vampires appear. It turns out, the Volturi brought their own witnesses. Bella now believes that all is lost:

    Even if we could somehow neutralize the Volturi's advantages, they could still bury us in bodies. (36.15)
  • On the other side, Irina is horrified to face her sisters. Edward's now convinced that the Volturi have come to destroy and acquire:

    They have many layers of strategy already in place. If Irina's accusation had somehow proven to be false, they were committed to find another reason to take offense. (36.21)
  • When the werewolves appear (sixteen total), the Volturi come to a stop. Bella realizes that Sam brought his entire pack, because he knows that the Volturi would hunt down the rest. It pains her to image that the young werewolves will die in a fight they're surely going to lose. The injustice of it all suddenly makes her murderously enraged:

    All I wanted in that moment was the chance to sink my teeth into them, to rip their limbs from their bodies and pile them for burning. (36.29)
  • She's now ready to fight, focusing on Alec and Jane.
  • Carlisle meets Aro, the Volturi leader, halfway. His bodyguard, Renata, accompanies Aro. Carlisle explains to him that no law has been broken. "[Renesmee] is not an immortal. She is not a vampire" (36.62). He explains that their friends are just witnesses to the truth of Renesmee's nature, and are not here to fight.
  • Aro calls Irina to the front. Seeing Renesmee, she admits that the child she remembers was smaller. Aro asks for Edward to step forward, so he can read his thoughts. Catching Jane's smug smile as Edward nears the Volturi, Bella's fury peaks and she throws out her shield:

    …my shield exploded a good fifty yards out from me effortlessly, taking only a fraction of my concentration. I could feel it flex like just another muscle, obedient to my will. (36.96)
  • After reading Edward's thoughts, Aro realizes that Carlisle has spoken the truth. He asks to meet Renesmee. They bring her forward, guarded on both sides. Aro compliments Bella on her new looks. "Immortality suits you" (36.149). He praises Renesmee's beauty and explains to his brother Caius that Renesmee is Bella and Edward's biological child. But Caius believes they've been tricked. Aro communicates with Renesmee.
  • His eyes suddenly move to Jacob, and the werewolves. Edward gathers that Aro thinks that the werewolves would make great guard dogs for the Volturi. Edward tells him that they don't follow vampire commands and are committed to protecting human life.
  • Aro informs Edward that he'll have to confer with his brothers on this change of events.
Chapter 37:
  • Bella hears the Volturi brothers arguing. Caius still believes that they've been deceived while Aro assures him that the Cullens are telling the truth.
  • Meanwhile, the Volturi witnesses watch with confusion. Bella manages to wrap her shield around their entire group. She realizes that, when it comes to the werewolves, she only has to protect Sam, because of the pack's mental connection. "If the Alpha was inside my shield, the rest of their minds were every bit as protected as his" (37.16).
  • When Caius refers to the werewolves as "Children of the Moon," and claims that they've been the Volturi's enemies since the dawn of time, Edward clarifies that Sam's pack doesn't consist of real werewolves, but shape shifters. They have merely inherited the skill to transform their bodies from their fathers. Yet, they could have taken on any form, and can't infect others the way real werewolves do.
  • Aro keeps taking the Cullens' side against Caius. Bella surmises that it's because he knows that false charges won't help them convince their witnesses to side with them.
  • Caius calls forth Irina. He prompts her to make an accusation against the Cullens and their relationship with the werewolves, but she admits her mistake and says that there's no reason for the Volturi to fight the Cullens.
  • Caius executes her on the spot. Bella realizes that it was a strategy to ignite the fight:

    He had wanted Irina's defiance… his excuse to destroy her, to ignite the violence that filled the air like a thick, combustible mist.(37.66)
  • As expected, Kate and Tanya charge to avenge their sister. Edward stops Tanya while Garret manages to restrain Kate, despite the volley of electric shocks she unleashes on him.
  • Aro asks to speak with the Cullen witnesses – another strategy, it seems. He asks Amun what he has observed about the child. Amun confirms Renesmee's growth and that she is Bella and Edward's biological child. Aro asks Amun if he thinks that Renesmee should be allowed to live and that she poses no danger, and he says yes.
  • Although all the witnesses affirm that Renesmee poses no threat, Aro maintains that because Renesmee is unique, there's no way of knowing how she might turn out and if she will endanger the vampire world. He adds that, with the advances in human technology, humans have the power now to destroy the vampire world if they discover its existence.
  • Garret steps before the Volturi witnesses. He tells them that it has become clear that the Volturi haven't come for justice, but for power. They perceive the Cullens as competition. He praises the Cullens as a real family, bound by love not power, like traditional vampire covens.
  • Aro asks the witnesses who they'll choose – the Volturi or the Cullens. They tell him they haven't come to fight, but to witness the truth, which is that the Cullens are innocent.
  • Aro admits that the Volturi are outnumbered. The rest of the Volturi guard is ready to fight, though. The brothers counsel again.
  • Bella is convinced that they'll decide to fight, so she tells Renesmee to leave with Jacob once the fight starts.
  • Edward finally learns the secret she kept from him and realizes why. He says good-bye to his daughter and to Jacob, calling him his brother and son. Everyone murmurs "good-bye" and "I love you."
  • All hope seems lost. Bella feels a fluttering pressure against the outside of her shield. "It's starting" (37.237).
So, Aro is "siding" with the Cullens quite a bit, huh?  Such a weird turn of events...what are your thoughts on that?  I thought it was strange the first time I read it and still kind of do.  I can see the point of needing to keep things in certain perspective to keep with their witnesses, but it seemed strange to drag them all to Washington to then side with the Cullens so easily.

We'll have the "fight" next week - and we can discuss how they're going to play that out on screen.  For now, how do you think they'll show Alec's power on film?  Or Benjamin's? 

For next week, we'll be finishing up:  Breaking Dawn: Book 3 - Chapter 38-39...and that's the end *sniffle.*

Once again, thanks to shmoop for the summaries.
