Miracles and Mischief by Esme Mom Cullen

Miracles and Mischief was voted not only the overall fan favorite in our Fornicatin' Father's Day Contest, but also a judge's pick and the Best Lemon. As the overall winner, not only does Esme Mom Cullen get banners and eternal bragging rights, but a full review of her story. We thought it was great and decided to make it our Pick of the Week this week.

Summary: What if Carlisle and Esme were granted the wish that was always out of reach? On Father's Day, Carlisle has a new reason to celebrate and revels in the delights of the changes in his wife.

I was more than a bit surprised (pleasantly!) that we got more than one canon entry in our Contest, and then extra thrilled that everything wasn't Bella and Edward. I do love our original OTP, but I have grown to appreciate (and sometimes favor) other pairings just for a change. Believe it or not, this is actually a canon oneshot wherein Esme and Carlisle become parents.

There's a lot of extra/new mythology in this story dealing with Nahuel and his familiy and the other South American vamps, along with a pretty incredible vampire gift, that leads to the miracle of Esme's pregnancy. One of my favorite bits of the story happens before they even discover she is pregnant:
Edward was tinkering at the piano, when he started laughing.
"What's so funny?" Bella called out in Portuguese before I could ask the question.
"I'm sorry. It's Esme. Her mind is wandering in a very strange fashion." He looked over at me. "Has she said anything about trying her hand at caricatures?"
"No, although I'm sure she would be very good at it."
"She's thinking about animated versions of the family. It's quite peculiar, and she seems to be focused on that and nothing else."

Carlisle goes upstairs to discover Esme isn't just thinking about caricatures - she's actually fallen asleep and is dreaming about them. The sleeping is the first of many symptoms that alert the rest of the Cullen clan that something isn't quite right. Carlisle seems to experience the epitome of utter befuddlement for a thankfully short period of time before a relative of Nahuel's, Khalida, shows up to explain. I won't give away the explanation because that's half the beauty of the story.

The other half is the absolutely reverent way in which Carlisle worships Esme in celebration of their first Father's Day together. It's sweet and endearing and comfortable, the way a couple should be after 60+ years together. At the same time, it's still refreshingly new.

I slid off the bed to start removing my clothes. As I began to unbutton my shirt, she sat up a little and called to me sweetly, "Do you want some help with that?"
"No, my love. Just relax." She required rest now. She couldn't make love for hours on end like before. Honestly, before we never had to stop, and there were times on her island when we had marathon sessions that lasted for days. I could never get enough of her, but now our time had to be limited. Her energy needed to be reserved. "Save your strength," I teased with a wink as I finished undressing.
She rolled her eyes at me, crossed her arms, bent her knees and pulled them up, and attempted to suppress a smirk. In a complete state of undress, I crawled from the end of the bed toward her knees and rested my chin on them and looked at her adorable face. She pressed her lips together, trying to suppress a laugh. Her attempt to look put out was very charming. I kissed both her knee caps, which must have been the secret password, because she slowly began to separate them. As her legs moved apart I trailed kisses down in between them until I reached those purple panties.

Author Interview with Esme Mom Cullen

Author Interview with EsmeMomCullen, author of Miracles and Mischief, winner of the TwiFicDataBase's Fornicatin' Father's Day Contest


What gave you the idea for this story? Did you have the story idea before you entered the contest or was the contest part of your inspiration? 

Last September a drabble of a conversation between Esme and this mysterious being, who has become Khalida, popped into my mind. I wrote it down immediately. I always thought would make a good prologue for a multi-chapter fic.  That piece is called If I Had One Wish. I just recently published it on my tumblr.  You’ll also find the incredible banner FrozenSoldier created for Miracles and Mischief at the bottom of that post!

Every once in a while I would think about If I Had One Wish and how I could expand it, but there just hasn’t been time. When I heard about the Fornicatin’ Father’s Day contest I immediately thought about how I could take the basis of that idea and create a story for the contest. 

The ending author's note to the story mentions that you might be continuing this one-shot. Any plans for that now?

I’m a full time corporate professional with a long Southern California commute so I’m often not home, which makes it tough to find time to write.  I’m starting to shape it now. I was struggling with how I was going to transition it from a one shot to a multi-chapter fic, but I believe I have solved that issue. It will continue under the Miracles and Mischief title. The next chapter will take us back to the beginning of the story when the Cullen’s go to South America and meet Maysun, Chisisi, and Khalida for the first time. The story will transition back and forth between Carlisle and Esme’s POV. If things go as planned, you should be seeing the first new chapter within the next few weeks. 

What did you find the hardest about writing this story? Or the easiest?
Writing the sex is always a struggle for me.  I always want it to be sexy, not boring, and not repetitive of another moment that I already published. When people tell me that they love my “lemons” I’m always in disbelief for a moment, but I’m thrilled that people enjoy intimate Carlisle and Esme. 

The easiest part was writing Carlisle’s worship of Esme as the mother of his child and his excitement over becoming a father. His reaction just came naturally because he adores her so much.

What do you like most about writing? Least? (Whether it's fan or original fiction.)
I love the creativity and escapism that fanfiction writing allows me. I write a lot in my job, but it’s very business focused materials. This allows me to use my writing talents in another way. 

What I like least is the amount of time it takes! It is a hobby for me, but there are times when the idea is in my head and I wish I could just transfer it to paper without the laborious action of typing it all.

Tell us about your other work. Is it all canon or AU? Do you have a favorite pairing? Do you find canon/AU harder to write than AH, or vice versa?
My favorite pairing is Carlisle and Esme and most of my work to date has been Carlisle/Esme. My major body of work is The Esme Chronicles. I’m currently working on the second part of what will be a trilogy. It kills me how little we learn about Esme from the books.  All we learn about her past is that she had a baby that died, she jumped off a cliff to her death, and Carlisle changed her. As I often say, for all we know from the books she could have been a knocked up prostitute! Sadly, we learn from the Correspondence with Stephenie Meyer on Twilight Lexicon (and now in The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide), that she had a very unhappy and abusive marriage.  I fell in love with Carlisle in Twilight and I wanted to know more about the woman that won Carlisle’s heart after centuries alone. If Stephenie wasn’t going to tell it, then I was going to. I used everything we knew from the books and the Correspondence as the basis of the story and then went from there.  

The first story is The Esme Chronicles: The Human Years, which begins in Esme’s childhood and tells her story up through when she opens her eyes for the first time as a vampire. The story I’m currently working on is The Esme Chronicles: The Vampire Years, which picks up where The Human Years left off and will eventually take us up to when they decide to move to Forks. The third part will be The Twilight Years, which will start with the Cullen’s arrival in Forks and go through post-Breaking Dawn. It’s completely canon work.  I try to show that Esme is a strong, smart and independent woman. In the Saga we only see her as just “Edward’s mom” through Bella’s eyes.  We never know that she ran away from her abusive husband, abandoning any familiar relationships, and took a job as a schoolteacher while she was pregnant, to protect her child. This is one strong woman and again there has to be something very special about her to win Carlisle’s heart.

I now have two canon/AU stories under my belt. C’mon, Mama Bear takes place during Breaking Dawn.  In a moment of need, Emmett and Esme have a little one-time only romp to relieve their tension. The other canon/AU is of course Miracles and Mischief.

This year I started writing letters from characters to mark holidays and occasions. For Mother’s Day, Edward wrote a letter to Esme, and on August 13th Esme wrote a wedding day letter to her son. There was also a Father’s Day letter from Carlisle to Edward. It’s just been a nice way of remembering the character’s feelings for each other and their response to the events.

There are also two canon one shots on my story list. The Rocky Horror Cullen Halloween Show, which is just a fun piece where the Cullen’s Halloween costume theme ends up being The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The second is Just the Way You Are, which was inspired by the Bruno Mars song. In this story, Carlisle hears the song for the first time and feels like it was written about his wife. When he arrives home, he and Esme have the house to themselves and they take advantage of it. Just the Way Your Are won the Avant Garde Award for Best One-Shot.

I could never write AH unless it’s a pre-vampire story such as The Human Years. Even if I write AU, I still believe in keeping the characters canon. To me being a vampire is essential to their characters. It defines them as characters.  If it’s 2011 and Carlisle’s a human then to me it’s not Carlisle Cullen. I know a lot of people disagree with me, but that’s my opinion.

What are some of your favorite Twilight fanfiction stories? Can you share with us a sentence or two about why you like them in particular?
I don’t read a lot of fanfiction for a couple reasons. First, I barely have time to write so when I do get a free moment I tend to focus on working on my own stories.  Two, I don’t want someone else’s idea to get in my head. I tend to avoid reading fanfiction canon stories so they don't influence what I have planned for The Esme Chronicles. I have bookmarked many stories that I look forward to reading when I'm done writing.  

When I first started writing what’s now known as The Esme Chronicles, there were not many Carlisle/Esme writers. There’s still more Carlisle/Bella than Carlisle/Esme stories, but the community has grown.

Many Carlisle/Esme authors and readers are familiar with Elise Shaw’s work, which unfortunately is no longer on I only read Carlisle and Esme: The Deleted Scenes, which is a look at some of the intimate moments of their life together. She has a beautiful way with words and storytelling that has impressed and gained the admiration of many Carlisle and Esme fans.

Empty Nest by SassyGeminiMom is a wonderful Carlisle/Esme one shot.  For the first time in two years, Carlisle and Esme have the house to themselves and they need to make up for some lost time. What I love about this story is that Esme is confidant, sexy and blows Carlisle’s mind. She is the self-assured Esme that I always imagine. 

A Light in the Darkness by SweetT129 is an AU story where Edward, Esme, Leah, Paul and Jacob do not survived the newborn battle in Eclipse.  It becomes a Carlisle/Bella love story, which I would usually be against, but the author takes care of the characters that have been lost with such love and respect that I adore this story. It’s also not teenaged Bella suddenly hooking up with Dr. Cullen. The relationship happens over time and Bella matures to Carlisle’s level. If there has to be a story where Carlisle isn’t with Esme, this is how it should be done.  

If Love Be Love is an ongoing series of one shots by my friend and TEC beta, MelissaMargaret. It’s a series of Carlisle/Esme intimate moments and I may be particularly partial because the first one was dedicated to me, but they are lovely stories.

Anything you want to add? 

There are other places you can find me in the Twilight fandom. I’m a staff writer for I’m on staff of The Avant Garde Awards, which specifically recognizes newer fanfiction writers. You can always find me on twitter at @ohmycarlisle and my tumblr. If you want to talk to The Esme Chronicles’ Esme, you can tweet her @_esme_cullen and I just started a tumblr called “Ask Esme Cullen”.  The “Ask Esme” tumblr was inspired by the “Ask Carlisle Cullen” tumblr, which is run by the author of Ithaca is Gorges, giselle-lx.

Thank you to my betas on the Miracles and Mischief one shot, MarchHare5 and Batgirl8968. Thank you to MelissaMargaret for giving the thumbs up to If I Had One Wish last September! Thank you to sweetishbubble and December.LeNoir for their ongoing love and support.

Thank you to everyone who has read an Esme Mom Cullen story! I know Esme isn’t the most popular character, but I’ve been amazed by readers’ responses to my work. It has a tendency to make people see Esme in a different light and realize that she’s not just “Edward’s emotional mother.” There’s so much more to her character. Keep  spreading the Esme and Carlisle love!


The Feeder by @Lindsay520

The Feeder by lindsay520

Right off the bat I suppose I should issue a warning. This is a very AU story: there's blood-drinking and violence. That said, that's exactly why this fic works and exactly why I picked it.  It's new and different and I've never read a fic like it.

Edward and his family are blood-drinkers, but are still concerned with taking human lives. Their solution is to have what they call "feeders." One human who they feed off of, drinking only a little bit each time, for weeks to months at a time. This minimizes the number of humans who die at their hands. The major drawback to this is that they have to feed daily. So Edward keeps Bella handcuffed to his bed in a remote cabin in the woods so that she can't even try to escape and so that he can drink from her regularly.

It sounds pretty macabre, and I suppose it is, but it's also really compelling. 

One night, three weeks after Edward found (kidnapped) Bella, he comes home to feed. He allows her to get up from the bed, where she's been for hours it seems, to use the bathroom and move around for a minute. Then she does something even more self-sacrificing than canon Bella - she basically offers herself to him. She doesn't fight, doesn't even protest. She gets comfortable back on the bed and asks if Edward is ready.

Things progress from there - the bloodlust leads to good ol' fashioned regular lust and they end up making passionate love. It might start as needy, blood-fueled fucking, but the emotional impact it has on both of them, but especially Edward, is immense.

Their relationship changes and grows after that. Despite the fact that Bella is still Edward's feeder, she becomes much, much more. He gives a name to his feelings for her when she almost gets taken from him by another vampire.

There's probably a bit of Stockholm syndrome going on here, since Bella quickly and obviously develops feelings for Edward as well, but lindsay520 does a great job of explaining why Bella is attracted to Edward (aside from his vampire perfectness) so it's still believable.

One of the things I really enjoy about this story is that it is incredibly different from canon (for obvious reasons) but it manages to keep some canon themes and elements throughout. Believe it or not, Edward does struggle to keep Bella safe and alive even while he's feeding. Then there's the almost inevitable debate, once he recognizes his feelings, of what to do with Bella - let her grow old as a human or change her into a vampire. There's also the third option of keeping her as a feeder for longer; the danger there is that he could accidentally take too much and cause her death.

I have to say, as much as I love the canon and slightly AU stories, I really love it when an author takes Meyer's world and turns it on its end. This is exactly that kind of story and I can't recommend it enough.

Final warning: there is passing mention of Bella being raped, but it's never explicitly detailed and nor is it by Edward. It plays in to describing her character and how she got to be where she is, but it isn't a major plot theme. Just be aware that it's there if this is a trigger of yours.

And a note: Normally I'd include quotes or excerpts from the story in a review. This time, I honestly just couldn't decide what to include because it was either too much awesome or a spoiler. So just go read the story and find the quotes for yourself. :)

Thanks for reading!

Agent 00hot by maxandmo


Agent 00hot by maxandmo

This is a great fic for me to review. Here we have an author that is not only hysterical but truly a great person. Max is writing a story that she can relate to. Bella is a parole officer and the author is a former parole officer.

Bella meets Edward in a local bar in the first chapter.

Are you frigging kidding me? Why didn't anyone tell me he was this hot? All these months I heard about Edward Cullen, the one who had moved on to the F.B.I., and not once did those morons mention that their old friend was a total hottie. I was trying to play this cool, but i couldn't help but sneak glances at this green-eyed God with the best hair I had ever seen.

Bella usually sits at home, but one night her coworker (who knew Edward) gets her to come out to the bar. Once she gets a look at Edward, Bella's nerves overcome her and she runs to her friend, Jessica. Even though she was trying to avoid contact with the Green-Eyed God, he has his sights set on her.

As I turned to look, Edward was in fact staring at me, holding a pink drink in his hand, and yes, his hair was indeed, fucked up.

We come to find out that though the connection between these two is instantaneous, it's not to be because Edward is taken by Tanya. Things might not be quite what they seem, however.

We had been together for a little more than a year. Things were definitely on the downward spiral, but I was used to the constant piece of ass, and was scared shitless to just end it. Tanya was cool enough to hang out with, I just couldn't imagine us going any further. I also couldn't imagine telling her she had to move out of my condo. Not that I ever actually asked her to move in, but that's another story.

That night at the bar, however, Emmett introduces Edward and Bella and Edward is quickly interested.

As she looked up I noticed her cheeks were flushed pink, she was chewing on her bottom lip, and she had the most beautiful brown eyes I had ever seen.

Their eyes remain locked but Edward gets nervous and can't approach Bella either.

He was now starting to slowly make his way over to us, never breaking the stare. I felt myself start to blush and was hoping no one noticed. All of a sudden there was a panicked look on his face, and he grabbed his cell phone off of his belt. He stayed on the phone for just a minute and then ran his hands through his hair looking frustrated. He gave me a half wave and turned back towards the bar. I noticed him say something to Emmett and the next thing I knew he was gone.

The plot thickens as we see some great interactions between Bella and her parolees that make me, for one, wonder if the author had some of the same experiences. I have to say, reading these interactions make me think of a spiced up Law and Order. I can see it now, Max at a table, a criminal at the other end, but instead of the "normal" interactions, the most absurd yet completely believable things happen.

There are two such instances in the story that I can talk about.

One involves a chance through a house, where Bella is chasing an offender. Just the words: "-TOTAL OVERKILL- TATE PAROLE OFFICER SHOOTS DOG 13 TIMES BUT THE OFFENDER GOT AWAY.-"

The other is one of my wife's favorites.

"Come on, Bree, it's time to pee," Sam barked out with authority.

I couldn't help myself and snorted while trying to hold in my laughter. He looked at me like I was nuts, but did he really not realize what he aid?

Bree and I walked into the bathroom, and I leaned against the wall acting like I wasn't paying any attention to her. She was stalling, and I knew she was up to no good. I took out my phone and acted like I was texting.

I saw her take a canister out of her pocket and open the lid. She was about to pour the liquid into the container when I told her to drop it. She dropped it alright, all over the floor. Whatever the hell was in the canister splashed up and sprayed all over my pants, soaking them.

"Fuck," I spat. "Put your goddamn hands against the wall."

She complied, and I placed her under arrest. "Sam, get your ass in here."

Sam walked and gaped at the wetness that was my pants. "Bella, you're in the bathroom. Why didn't you say you had to go?"

"Ha ha ha," I laughed dryly.

I would have rather pissed my pants than to have someone else's piss on them. The sucky part was now I had to go to the jail like that. Lovely.

I remember drinking a pop and as this scene unfolded and the poor, poor puppy was shot, I snorted pop out my nose. Well, the puppy was not so nice and the pop burned like fire, too.

You follow Bella, Jasper, Emmett, Edward and others on an adventure to solve a series of bank robberies. Along the way, Edward and Bella's relationship blossoms.

Finally, I must give Max credit for her writing of Esme. What a woman. You will find yourself laughing until you can't breathe at some of the things this lady does and says, but I won't spoil that for you.

Now go off and read the story. If not for the story, at least do it for the humor. When you combine both you have a great fic written by a great author. Max has lived up to her name with this one and I look forward to see what she's going to do next. I hope it's a story with Esme as the lead - I could die of laughter. Go read. Enjoy and laugh and make sure you leave a review as Max always responds in her witty way.

Breaking Dawn Book 4: Renesmee by kimmydonn

Official Summary: Renesmee's POV for Breaking Dawn. Starting just before Edward 'hears' her for the first time.


Review: Anyone who knows me and my love for fanfic knows that I love canon stories. On occasion I can get into AH or AU, but for the most part, it is canon for me all the way. Specifically, I LOVE reading a Twilight series book, but in a different POV than Stephanie Meyer's originally wrote. If you are like me and craving different POV for the same story, then Breaking Dawn Book 4: Renesmee by Kimmydonn is a fic for you.

The first chapter starts off with little Renesmee still inside of Bella, but able to hear what is going on around her. She is slowly starting to figure out what she is and how she relates to the outside world. Through Renesmee's eyes we get to read in detail what happened while Edward was with Bella during her change and Jacob was realizing that Renesmee was his imprint.

I felt his affection. It made me happy. And I understood sorry, regret. That was how I felt when I hurt Bella. Jacob kissed my forehead and Rosalie made a low sound. "Settle down, Blondie. I'll never hurt this little girl. I won't let anything hurt her. She's my world now." His voice was husky and serious, full of emotion. He held me tighter.

Renesmee continues to explore the world (well, the world within the safe Cullen compound) and is learning and growing at a crazy rate every day. We see her physically change, as well as develop mentally. She learns tons of new words and even learns how to spell, all while Bella is silently burning away. Finally, Renesmee gets to see Bella and is excited to finally be with her Mama. We all know the story though, and soon Bella must get all mama bear aggressive with Jacob once she finds out about the imprint.

Eventually, things start to even out and the Cullen group enjoys their happy little life. Well, until all hell breaks loose and they learn that the Volturi are coming. This is where we really get to see Renesmee as a character. In Stephanie Meyer's story she was sorta just the center of the approaching fight, but in Kimmydonn's fanfic, you really see that Renesmee has developed feelings and thoughts. She is concerned, scared, and worried for her family. She realizes that they are actually in danger and is able to process the real possibility that they might not make it through this battle.

I love stories with POVs from other characters because it really gives you a chance to see a more developed character and get a connection with them that you might not ever have without the new POV. Reading Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer, I really didn't care much about Renesmee, but after reading this fanfic, I have a newly developed respect for the character that she is. Seriously, if you love stories that stay true to the original, Breaking Dawn Book 4 - Renesmee is for you. You will get a detailed account of how Renesmee fit in during the entire book. Enjoy!

A Whole Lotta Trouble by jacndaniel

A Whole Lotta Trouble by jacndaniel

Official Summary: After graduating from college, Bella makes her way to Vegas so she can marry her childhood sweetheart. An unexpected stop lands her in a lazy little town and on Edward's doorstep. Mechanicward meets Sassella... Hijinx ensue... She could be in A Whole Lotta Trouble.

One weekend when HBO was going insane and playing The Fast and the Furious movies on a continuous loop, I thought 'what would be better than a story about Edward as a mechanic?' I went onto the twitter, asked around, and found that Jacndaniel, being her awesome self, had already written one! It's a fic that I follow and run to read whenever it updates. It really is hot - I mean, Edward in greasy overalls kind of speaks for itself.

Bella has recently graduated from college and is on her way to meet her soon-to-be husband, Jacob Black, in Vegas. We start out with Bella and her snarky musings as she drives through the scorching desert. However a certain tick-tick-ticking noise the car is making causes Bella to stop at a gas station where her life will be flipped upside down.

As I approach the garage, I see a pair of tan steel toed boots sticking out from under a slick black 1963 Chevy Nova. The car was sexy as fuck, but I decide that licking it might burn the shit out of my tongue.

I shake myself out of my musings and see that the boots are now attached to long legs in gray coveralls. They are also attached to a broad chest and a pretty face. A pretty face with full, pouty lips and shiny eyes. I swear that he is so damn beautiful he actually His hair is covered in a bandana that he is using to catch the sweat before it drips into his eyes. The emerald fucking green eyes that are helping to accent the cocky smirk on his face. I have to mentally wipe the drool from my chin, and then... He spoke.

His voice is like velvet and it caresses me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes.

"What can I do for you, gorgeous?" he asks. And I melt like a popsicle into a puddle of goo at his feet. I think I'm in a whole lotta trouble.

Yes, you guessed it - the grey overall-wearing sparkly man is Edward Cullen. Edward is a mechanic at the little corner of the desert. He's smooth and a big flirt, just the way we all like him. Jacndaniel kills you a bit with every "hello, gorgeous," or "Babygirl" he throws out at Bella. Of course he also picked up on the fact that Bella means "beautiful," and takes full advantage of it.

"Bella," I stated, because if he called me gorgeous one more time I was liable to hump his leg.

"Bella?" he sounded confused, but he was still wearing his gorgeous smirk.

I pointed at myself like the huge moron his smirk reduced me to. "Me. I'm Bella. It's my name."

"Bella... gorgeous... means the same thing, doesn't it?"

The whole crew soon joins in the story all running and helping with the diner and hotel that are attached to the gas station. Emmett works the hotel desk while Rose gives Bella advice as a waitress in the diner. In the short time it takes Edward to fix Bella's car, the crew accepts Bella and sparks begin to fly.

Jacndaniel captures the chemistry between Bella and Edward expertly but all good stories need a good twist and perhaps a dash of angst. Don't be alarmed - I'm talking a dash. A tiny pinch, if you will. The plot thickens, as does the chemistry - don't forget Bella has a wedding to attend.

All of a sudden I feel really hot. And it's dark. Wait, my eyes are closed... and there is a blanket on top of me. I open my eyes and I gasp... "Good morning, lovely."

Now, don't kill me. Just go read it. Trust me, it's totally worth it. Don't forget to leave a little love for Jacndaniel; she always responds and is just such a sweetheart. She's very talented with her writing and truly hooked me in with this fic. It's a WIP and I wait anxiously for each and every update!

Go enjoy it yourself!
