It’s the last Friday in March! I think next month I’m going to switch it up, try a few new things with FFF Nothing intense but I want to keep you all interested!
Title: Pure Revelations
Summary: E & B share a class at UDub, but not much else. She’s shy & reserved as she adjusts to a new life. He’s angry & isolated because of his upbringing in the mysterious and secretive LaVerrot Estates. Fate brings them together, but will their love be allowed?
“Come on, Edward.” I could tell by her voice that she was smiling. “You know I have to get on your schedule early. I mean, you stay soooo busy sleeping and eating and playing video games…”
Now see, that just pisses me off. I can do whatever I want to when I’m on a break from school! That’s why it’s called a break, right?
“…and I just wanted to make sure you would be here when Mom and I get back from yoga class.” She’s ignoring my growing agitation.
Wait, did she say yoga class?
She hears my quick intake of breath and begins to elaborate. “Mrs. Hale is teaching an early class today because she knows that we’re all very busy with last minute preparations for the holidays.”
Oh, that devious pixie knows me too well. How can I go back to sleep now when I’m picturing Charlotte Hale and the other hot Stepford Wives and their daughters exercising just a few doors down? The fitness center here at our little gated neighborhood, or, as I call it, the “Conformity Compound,” is utilized to its fullest by the ladies of the community. They gather there in tight workout clothes to gyrate and bend their bodies, to maintain tight asses and toned abs. My plastic surgeon father claims that their smooth, line-free skin and long, lean limbs are from “healthy lifestyle choices and clean living”- not from a syringe of botox or liposuction. Whatever. I could care less if he has ever worked on them…just let me enjoy the view.
Why? It’s just one of those fics! Its fun to read, it holds your attention and has a great Edward and Bella!
Title: Without Reserve
Summary: Bella sees him all the time as he mans the reserves desk at the campus library. She thinks she’s got him pegged. What she doesn’t know might surprise her. WINNING ENTRY FOR THE FIC THIS GIF ANON CONTEST: “HIGHEST SWOON FACTOR”
“Hi, Edward. Anyone ever tell you not to read and walk?” I teased.
He snorted lightly. “Yeah, I guess it isn’t a great idea when you think about it.”
I smiled in response. “How are you today? Ready for the weekend?”
“Um, yeah, I suppose,” he replied quietly, taking the printout of reserved listings I needed and my student ID from my hands. His fingers only touched mine for a second, but there was always something about it. I always felt a little tingle. He moved to sit in front of his computer screen to scan my card and look up the items’ location in the back room.
Why: I’m still waiting not so patiently for this to be a full fic (I wish). It just pulled me in and I’m so in love with it.

Seems that the tweet from yesterday was true-ish! Apparently, Rob and Kristen did date night .. or date twilight .. golfing on Tuesday. We know this is one of Kristen’s favorite past times, so it could very well be a legitimate sighting! When it comes to the PDA, I am a little skeptical, but regardless, it’s fun to imagine <3
On Tuesday, the couple hit golf balls at a course in their Los Feliz neighborhood, a source exclusively confirms to E! News.
The eyewitness says that K.Stew “walked into the pro shop around 4 p.m. and bought a bucket of balls” before walking around back to meet up with R.Pattz.
“After they retrieved their balls, Kristen gave Rob a little kiss and then they headed toward the course. They looked like they were really enjoying themselves,” the source added.

From Twitter user, @LAustin_:
I just ran into them at a karaoke bar by my house… mellow night. They were just there hanging out with a few friends.
They were just minding their own business hanging out in a booth with friends.
It was them and 2 other friends. One male, one female.
From Radcollector (L. Austin):
I feel weird having caused such a huge uproar in celebrity gossip, so to set the record straight this is exactly what I saw that night. My friend Lany spotted Robert & Kristen with two other friends (one guy one girl) while we were standing outside our small, local karaoke dive bar, Ye Rustic Inn. Lany is a fan so she told me she thought it would be cool to get a photo with them. Being a photographer and used to approaching people for photos, so I walked up to them and asked if I could take a photo of them with Lany using my iPhone. Kristen was enthusiastic about it, putting her arm around Lany and cracking a smile… however Robert wasn’t keen on the idea… jokingly trying to get me to take the photo with his back to the camera. Kristen told him to stop being an asshole and the result is the photo that spread like wildfire. After I shot the photo everyone headed into the bar and their group went straight into a booth in the back so they could have at least some privacy. From then on I mostly minded my own business. Occasionally I would glace over and their crew would be laughing or joking around with the bartender that was bringing drinks to their table… and their guy friend that was with them sang one karaoke song but “Robsten” never got on the mic. Once the bar closed around 2 everyone shuffled out and as I was biking home I saw their crew hanging around a truck talking, ready to leave to wherever they were going next. Yes they seemed to be enjoying eachother’s company, yes Kristen Stewart is capable of smiling, yes they were sitting next to eachother in a booth… but none of which is clear evidence that Robert and Kristen are “officially back together”… even if my friend Lany told press that she had her hand on his back.
Read her full write-up about her Robsten encounter here.
Finally, order has returned to Los Feliz.
Robert Pattinson is back in the States after two months of filming in Australia and, last night, he and Kristen Stewart enjoyed a group date night at one of their favorite L.A. haunts, Ye Rustic Inn.
“They seemed really happy to be with each other,” an eyewitness to the reunion exclusively tells E! News.
“Rob and Kristen were having so much fun together,” the insider said. “They sat in the back of the bar in a booth and were laughing. At one point, they were standing at the bar and were just being normal, as any boyfriend and girlfriend would be with each other.
“They were touchy-feely. She was holding on to his jacket and had her hand on his back. They were just cute.”
And, thanks to Stewart, Pattinson didn’t end up being an a–hole.
“My friend is a photographer so she is not shy about going up to people and asking for photos, so she just asked them for one,” another fellow Ye Rustic Inn patron told us.
“Kristen was super nice,” she said. “She was like ‘You know how many times I get asked that, no problem’. Rob was a little bit more shy. [Stewart] was like, ‘Come over here, Rob, don’t be an a–hole.’ She was laughing and put her arm around me. He smiled and took the pic. She was super friendly.”
Later in the night, the lucky bargoer saw Robsten again outside. “At one point I was outside and they were playing around in the street,” she said. Stewart “and her friend were, like, racing. They were having a lot of fun.”
Reunited, and it feels so good.
Happy Friday! I’m either on a plane or already in LA right now getting ready for THE HOST promo! Melissa and I will be there for the press junket and the premiere! woo!
Here’s two amazing recs, enjoy!
Title: Finding My Thunder
Summary: Coming of age 1960′s. Bella keeps her mother’s secrets. But she has some of her own, a love from childhood for the golden boy Edward, the one who no longer sees her. Soon they are tied by more than childhood history. It’s a long dark road toward finding her thunder.
Something popped in me, and I knew I couldn’t bear this anymore. I went in the bathroom and rummaged through the medicine cabinet and grabbed Daddy’s old razor and unscrewed it while I made this terrible sound, and I picked that razor blade out of it with my trembling fingers and I held it up and just stared at it.
I pictured myself showering this whole place with my blood before I died.
Then I caught myself in the mirror, holding that blade…and I looked like her…the eyes…something crazy…and the hair…that for sure.
I thought of Naomi. She would find me. And after Jacob…after him….
I pitched that blade into the toilet and flushed it down and sunk to my knees on that cold white tile and I slammed the lid and folded my arms there and put my head on them and I cried without tears…no tears…just sounds like I didn’t know I could make. I wanted…I wanted…and I would die pining…like Mama.
Why? So many people I know recommend this fic to people and I think its about time I do as well! Its insanely well written and very addicting.
Title: And Then There’s You
Summary: A misunderstanding makes the Cullens plan a cruel prank on unpopular Isabella Swan for vengeance. But as Edward takes on the challenge of seducing Bella he quickly discovers her dark world at home. Edward must now save the girl he was supposed to break.
“Are you fucking blind? Of course you are, but, shit, learn how to fucking walk at least and use those goddamn glasses, nerd!
Ah, yes, I still remembered his sweet words and his angry, bright green eyes staring down at me as I picked my books off the floor. He didn’t help me pick the books up and just walked away. Edward was a jerk and a man whore, but I still loved to stare at him.
I used him as my muse for my drawings. Oh yes, I did draw. Another stupid teenage cliché, but I loved to draw. It’s the only goddamn thing I was good at. Anyway, though I could not draw the perfection of Edward’s face, I tried and then I’d find my pathetic self running my fingers over his penciled lips. I rolled my eyes at myself. I couldn’t be blamed it would be the only way I’d ever get to do that. I’d never had a boyfriend and my plain self wouldn’t appeal to Edward. He and his friends would probably laugh at me…well they already did, but I wouldn’t stand them making fun of my adoration for Edward’s beauty.
Why? The lovely @adnamaventura recommended this to me this past week & I’m a sucker for angst/romance fics! Wasn’t completely convinced when I first started reading but I really enjoyed it.
Tell them StrictlyRobsten sent you!

Melissa (the owner of Strictly Robsten) and me are heading to LA this Friday for The HOST promo & premiere! We’re extremely excited to get to go & so thankful we got an invite! I’m re-reading the book again & watching all the trailers, looking at all the stills and getting into HOST mode!

Title: Let Me
Summary: A story about two friends, a three-day music festival, and stupid love. EPOV.
“I swear. Bella will remember,” I say. “We were all in my car, it was… fuck, it was just before senior year started, in 2003. I had their album playing the night we got wasted and went bowling.”
He looks skeptical. “How do you remember all of this?”
“It’s a fond memory of mine. It was the night you puked in the bowling alley, remember?”
He picks up the remote from the coffee table and chucks it at me.
I curse, rubbing my shoulder. “Jasper, calm down. Shit. I don’t even know why you’re pissed. It’s not like I’m asking you not to see those sellouts play tomorrow night. You can see whoever the fuck you want. I don’t care.”
He breathes through his nose. “Sellouts? Are you serious right now?”
I love this author and found this a few nights ago. Jasper is a sad sap who gets made fun of by Edward a lot (I think its hilarious). Edward and Bella flirt and get quite lemony and you are totally dying for them to be together! I love this. It’s short chapters definitely leave you wanting more!
If you head on over to these lovely stories pretty please let them know StrictlyRobsten sent you!
From Kristen Stewart, V Magazine, Spring 2013
“I really love people,” she says as she hops into a chair and folds her tiny frame like origami. “You can’t not as an actor. It’s just strange meeting someone and going, Okay, you start at square one and I will try and make up for what you already think you know about me.”
She tries so hard to be what fans need her to be. Part of my frustration with the general consensus of judgy morons (yes, that is a technical term) who have a pre-conceived ill opinion of her is that she really is so amazingly cool to her fans and they would NEVER admit that. I’ve met her several times and have never had anything but a great experience. Sometimes, though, I’d love to be able to tell her “It’s ok, Kristen. You don’t have to be a certain way just to make us happy. Flip off the camera. It’s cool. I get it!” LOL!
