Fold Your Wings by Jadalulu

Official Summary:
The liberties he assumes with my body should enrage me, anger me beyond my own sanity. But it's just not that simple." Encounters born of need. Consequences neither saw coming. Guard your hearts. Not the ExB you're used to. AH


Concentration that is shattered into a thousand pieces with the sensation of his hand gripping my hair and abruptly pulling backward, snatching my head back.

My eyes fly open.

I'm looking up at the ceiling and the moan that slips from my mouth does so without my permission.

I'm breathing harder now, my mouth hung open and my heart beating furiously in my chest, which is rising and falling rapidly. I'm confused and thrown by my own reaction to his manhandling me.

A familiar standoff begins.

My head tells me to revolt.

My body. They feel differently.

My hands clench the table's edge tighter and my legs feel like jello.

From my periphery, I can see his head rise from the left side of my face and look at me. His head tilts to the side, as if he's contemplating something. I can't move to look at him, his grip too tight.

"You've accepted my offer, have you not?" His voice is louder than a whisper, but still low. A slow, husky drawl of words.

I nod my head minutely and he tugs back on my hair...hard.

"Ahh!" I cry out from surprise. The sharp pain to the back of my head should frighten me, anger me. But it has a much different effect. My breathing accelerates and my hands twitch with the need to find purchase.

"Use your words, Isabella."

"Ye-yes. Yes, I accepted." My words are breathy...spoken through pants.
This is not an Edward you have ever met before.

Edward has absolutely NO redeeming qualities, he is an ass and he owns it. Jadalulu owns it.
From the moment he approaches Bella about his proposition, he speaks with purpose and impatience. He is direct, unforgiving, and indifferent. His character is so against the grain that we are instantly slack-jawed and speechless. With every interaction, I am on the edge of my seat. I am angry and excited all at the same time.

Fingers, hard and fast, slide under my ponytail and snatch it back viciously. My head jerks back and I cry out from the pain.

"Shut the fuck up."

The noise dies in my throat.


All I can hear are my hard breaths in and out of my nose and the low, steady hum of his in my right ear.

"Five hundred cash. Right here, right now. Yes or no? Shake your head or nod." His voice is rushed and impatient. A harsh, forceful whisper.
Let’s be completely honest, this story has sex; rough, mean, hate filled, quick, and dirty sex. But before you get all excited thinking that this is just another brainless read, where you get to read clichéd lemon after clichéd lemon... relax. This is totally not that story. This is soo much more than that. YES, Jadalulu has written several palpatatingly HAWT sex scenes, so extremely hot that Fold Your Wings has been pulled from I think that my most favorite aspect of Jada’s writing is that while she is writing a rough and dirty lemon, she is doing it in such an intelligent way that you are literally transplanted into Bella’s mind.

I have read so many stories that are basically plotless porn. A few fairly good porn with little plot, but I have never read a story that equally had both an excellent plot and excellent lemons. When this fic first started making a buzz on twitter and all anyone could say was "OMG it is just sooo... uuunnnggg", honestly I was turned off and didn't want to read. I assumed that it was just another plotless porn, and I have been in the mood to read more. So many of the stories out there are just copycats of others and there are only so many times that one can read about moist folds or coming on demand. I have been looking for a story with actual characters that didn't blur into the hundreds of others that I have read.

I was desperately in the need of an intelligent Bella who was strong enough to face her demons. I found that and so much more with Jada's Bella.

And the scariest part of all isn't what awaits you at the bottom...

It isn't the looming blackness below...

It's the fact that despite all of the sane, rational reasons why you should turn back and run...

Despite every ounce of common sense gnawing at you...

Despite the voice of reason in your ear and the validity of its pleading...

You made the decision to jump before you ever reached the edge.

The tragic irony is that all of the luring, beckoning, reminding...

The warning, the sinking feeling, the consequences...

They are unsuccessful in tipping the scales.

They only propel you further toward the abyss...
Bella is determined to have the life that she has dreamed about since she was a young girl. She has overcome every obstetrical placed in front of her and has exhausted herself in the process.
There comes a point when Bella must choose; accept the offer, although degrading and immoral, or let go of her dreams for the time being. I love that no one is holding a gun to her head, there is not a dying parent or some other horribly sad story. It is just one adult who evaluates her options and does what she feels she must. Of course there are other options that she could have taken, but she didn't.

Through Bella's narrative we are taken on the most wonderful journey of self discovery and exploration. What she thinks will be able just a ' grin and bear it' type of situation soon becomes her outlet and she finds herself craving more.

As a writer, I applaud Jada's courage to conquer such a touchy subject. She has written this story with grace and realism. As a reader, I am hungry for more. Whether she meant to or not she has ended the last chapter at an extremely pivotal point where the characters could take one of two roads and I have been on the edge of my seat waiting to see what direction she pushes them.

And by the time I've raised my fist to knock, the transformation is complete.

When he opens the door, I want to drop to my knees. I want to shed every stitch of clothing that separates my skin from his.
They way that Jada writes the mental transformation that Bella uses to go from real life into Edward's penthouse is so beautifully descriptive. I can almost hear her heart rate and breathing alter as she waits in the elevator.

Swiftly and without warning, he rears back and I feel the sting of his palm on my ass. He alternates sides as he goes and my breathing spikes.

One, two, three, four times.

On the last, I'm unable to harness the grunt that comes from my throat. It's a sound of frustration. It would be frustration with myself for finding any pleasure in the way this feels. It would be...had I not chosen to check such introspective thoughts at the door.

There is no room for lucidity here. This is purely carnal.

"What am I going to with you, Isabella? Fucking whore that you are. I wonder how many poor bastards have dipped into this. Were you as bad of a listener for them as you are for me, huh?"

The next slap lands directly between my thighs. My body jerks and seizes altogether as he dips two fingers inside me.

The torture is ambrosial. He sheaths them all the way in, until his palm is flat to my ass, only to withdraw them fast and harsh. The friction it creates makes it difficult not to writhe back against his hand. So I do...

And again, I groan.
I could honestly talk about this story for days and if I don't stop now, I just may do that. Please go read it with an open mind and see it for what it is...

Author Interview:
What gave you the idea for this story?
I was intrigued by the idea that Bella couldn't just stare up at Edward with her doe eyes and conquer his demons. I wanted to explore a darker possibility. One that didn't feel so safe. Shake it up a little. Oh, and I'm a total perv. That helps.

Are their any FF authors that inspire you?
Oh geez. SO many. Some really well known and some not so. In particular, LolaShoes and windchymes for their AU masterpieces. I found them at a time where I'd been curled up in the fetal position, clutching at my copy of Breaking Dawn and trying to figure out where it all went so wrong. Those ladies pulled me back from the edge. lol They both write with a beautiful intensity.

What was your main inspiration for your lead characters?
There is a song called 'It's About Time' by Barcelona, whose lyrics really resonated with me. But the greatest inspiration is the music video for the song. It's very simple, but I couldn't get it out of my mind for the longest time. So I opened a doc on my Mac and here we are. ;)

What do you think it takes to make a fic special and stand out to a reader?
That's tricky, because I think SO much of a reader's enjoyment of a fic depends on them. Their mood, where they are in life, personal issues, their mood at the time, etc. As a reader, I gravitate toward stories that absorb me into them. That cause me to get lost in them, that make me FEEL the words I'm reading. Where I finish a chapter and have to look up and remember where I am. Yellowglue gave me a piece of advice once. She said 'Write your heart.' I think that if you do that, readers can tell and will respond to it.

What do you find the hardest about writing this story?
I have a ball writing this story, I really do. The only thing that bothers me are close minded people who attack at the first sign of anything different. Of anything outside of the safe box. For the most part, readers have been very supportive and open minded, and I welcome and encourage people to be honest in their opinions. But if you can't do it respectfully, I have no interest in hearing you out.

Why do you think people should read this story?
I don't necessarily think people SHOULD. I'm very aware of how tough my scenes can be to read for some people. I don't want anyone reading who isn't comfortable, but I also like to think that there's beauty in having faith in a story, in not knowing what's going to happen. Suzie55 put it best. 'There's what the readers want, and what they NEED.' That isn't meant to be patronizing or condescending at all. It can be very liberating to push past your comfort zone a little. I've discovered some of my favorite stories that way ;)

What cliches do you feel authors should avoid while writing fanfic?
Oh boy. You're gonna get me in trouble. lol In my opinion, cliches are born when people are too busy writing what they think people want to read and not expressing themselves honestly. Wrap your mind around your idea. Feel it. And write what comes from that. Don't compromise your vision of things because you're worried no one will like it that way.

Do your RL friends and family know about your love and obsession with all things Twilight?
The obsession really only comes into play where Rob is concerned. lol But yes, they know I like Twilight, although MrJada and one RL friend are the only ones who know I write Fold Your Wings.

Have you got any other projects going on? Any planned for the future?
I do. I'm working on a couple other stories right now. But I won't take on more than one at a time, so nothing else until FYW is complete.

Do you have anyone that you'd like to thank for helping and supporting you through this fic?
Absolutely. raindrops855, KlrTwiLuver,stickybuns and RoseArcadia. These ladies are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Fold Your Wings would be a ghost in the Land of the Lost Docs right now if it weren't for them. Also jjohnson78587 for starting the Twilighted thread and all of the lovely ladies who are so supportive of me over there. And I have to say that I have THE most open minded, honest, enthusiastic readers on the planet. Many of them have become great friends as well. They all make me very proud to be a part of the fandom.

When you aren't writing which fics are you reading right now?
I have to admit that I haven't really gotten a lot of reading done since I started writing, but I've got one hell of a TBR list going. I'm a huge one shot whore, though. They're quick and dirty. Perfect for me right now. lol I'm all kinds of late to the party, but I just finished 'I Never Knew' by nerac and really enjoyed it. I'm reading 'Living Backwards' by ciaobella27 right now and am loving how pleasantly surprised I am by it.

How were you introduced to the fandom? Do you remember which FanFic was your first to read?
I stumbled into the fandom. I'd just read all four Twilight books in four days and was online because I'd heard about Midnight Sun being in the works. I remember finding and being a goner. Bloodlines by windchymes and I'll Be Your Lover Too by EdwardsBloodType were two of my very first fics, and they remain in my favorites. Awesome reads.

Is there any information that you would like to share that was not already covered?
Because FYW was recently pulled from, it is now only available for reading on my blog, and on The Writers Coffee Shop. It's also posted on, but is behind by several chapters there.

Any additional information you would like posted???
Nothing I can think of! But thank you guys for taking the time to do this for authors and their fics. I really appreciate the honor of being interviewed by you! :)

Please tell us what you think.  I know that I completely showed my inner 'FanGirl' on this review, but please go read her story.  I hope that her writing will speak to you as it has to me!


personal as your story is unique I will always thank you for giving us this look

I have been following Jada's story since she was about 3 chapters into it and get MORE involved and pulled in with every chapter. GREAT writing and such an unusual story. So good to read "real" characters with different storylines and not the same old same old. Dying for the next update *cough no pressure Jada cough*

Loved this, love the fic, love you J! Come for the lemons, stay for the plot, my friends!
