Once again, by the time I post this, it'll probably be Thursday. But at the moment, it's technically Wednesday and I have an insanely hot One-Shot Wednesday to rec to y'all.
This gorgeous one-shot was written for the Perv Pack's Smut Shack's Officer & A Gentleman Contest and won the Reader's Choice Award. I read it back during the contest & have just been waiting for the perfect time to rec it on here. In the midst off all the Oscars, Remember Me, Runaways, Bel Ami, Eclipse Trailer, etc. excitement, I thought this would be the perfect time to rec a fantastic short story to our readers. If you're looking for a little something to read before bedtime without the commitment multi-chapters & waiting for updates, give this lovely piece a try.
In Semper Fidelis by Ilsuocantante, Edward is a deployed Marine who surprises his Bella on their anniversary. It's a one-shot, which means it's not a lengthy story, but Ilsuocantante paints enough of a backstory & builds the characterization in a way that you immediately fall in love with this particular ExB. She's strong, he's devoted, they're both deeply in love with one another. He surprises her, there are lemons, and other lovely treats. The writing is beautiful. Descriptive without being too wordy. It conveys the couple's fiery passion, tenderness, and strength that are a direct result of their situation.
I cannot cannot cannot recommend this story enough. Go read and fall in love with this pair yourself. Fall in love with the author's writing (she's got lots of other fantastic stories, too!). And if you do read it, be sure to leave her some love down in the reviews.
Now, as you all know there's some other fun stuff going on out there too. Oh say, Remember Me (premiering on FRIDAY!), 90 Seconds of Eclipse debuting online tomorrow morning (!), and hopefully more set photos of Bel Ami Rob showing up. But there ARE some, uh, things going on with OTHER Twi-cast members. Shall we take a look at what Mr. Lutz has been up to? Hello X spot.
Stay tuned tomorrow for Twi-fecta's post-Oscar breakdown. We're still swooning. Don't forget, The Stew will be on Leno tonight.
PS - A HUGE thank you to all the lovely ladies who contributed to my Birthday Post. You've no idea how much it meant. Merci mille fois!
