Fave Fics Friday: Beyond the Gaze of a Boy by Whitlock-Masen

24 Jul

Summer is catching up on me!  I skipped Fave Fics Friday two Fridays ago because I was on vacation.  Then last week was all about catching up after vacation AND getting ready for my son’s birthday party on Saturday.  Now that THAT’S all done, I can post last week’s Fave Fics Friday…on Monday. *headdesk*

Anyway…today I’m returning to the author team Whitlock-Masen.  I mentioned their drabble fic Eye Candy previously as my favorite currently-updating fic.  Before Eye Candy, there was Beyond the Gaze of a Boy.  It was the first drabble fic I read, and it updated every day for a month.

During that month, Beyond the Gaze of a Boy was my favorite currently-updating fic.  It’s everything that I love: high school Edward and Jasper, shy Edward with a crush on Jasper, and all sorts of sweetness.  At 30 chapters of 100-word drabbles, it’s a quick read but worth it for the squee-factor.  *happy sigh*

Fave Fics Friday: Your Biggest Fan by OfTheDamned

1 Jul

Raw and Rosy may be my favorite smutfic, but Your Biggest Fan is my favorite Edward/Jasper story. Ever. Of all time. Period.

It’s sweet high school boys Edward and Jasper, which I love, and also friends-turned-lovers Edward and Jasper, which is a common theme but it doesn’t feel overdone in Your Biggest Fan.

Edward is socially awkward, shy, and trying to hold what remains of his family — his sister Alice — together.  Their mother is dead and their father neglects them, so Edward has been taken in by Jasper’s family and Alice by Bella’s family.

Edward and Jasper are runners on the track team — a nice change from the typical musician/artist Edward and Jasper.  Also a nice change of pace — it’s Edward Masen and Jasper Cullen.

There are some memorable scenes: Jasper massaging Edward’s injured leg, their first kiss, Edward trying to hide his morning wood, Edward trying to communicate his feelings through the “perfect” Christmas gift.  There is some smut, but it’s done realistically for two inexperienced boys.

The story isn’t complete (I believe it’s very close…) and it’s been left off in the angsty part, but I’m holding out for the resolution for these boys.

I saw this picture on tumblr and it reminded me very much of Edward and Jasper’s first kiss in Your Biggest Fan.  It makes me smile every time I see it.  (If it’s not animated for you, click on it.)

Fave Fics Friday: Raw and Rosy by Tuesday Midnight

17 Jun

I’m back with another Fave Fic from Tuesday Midnight.  I wrote about Seven Minutes in Heaven a few weeks ago.  While I was reading that story, she started posted a new one called Raw and Rosy.  I was intrigued, but when I read the author’s note in the beginning, I didn’t read further:

This is a spank!fic. It has a great deal of PWP [porn without plot] and contains EXPLICIT ADULT CONTENT. This is not exactly a bdsm story. Edward and Jasper are seniors in high school, both 18, so they don’t have a lot of experience. They naturally fall into a sort of d/s dynamic, and this is a story of how they work through this discovery. Though this is 80% smut (and the smut is not entirely realistic), I see the remainder as a character study into Jasper’s psyche. If this is not your cup of tea and/or if you are not of legal age – please stop reading now.

Decided it wasn’t my cup of tea, so I didn’t read it.  Boy, was I ever wrong about that!

By the time Tuesday Midnight was about four chapters in, I was very curious.  I was hearing about this story on twitter, and none of the other stories I was reading were updating so I was practically going through Edward/Jasper withdrawal.  So I decided to try out the first chapter.  I could always stop if I didn’t like it, right?

Hah! I very quickly became addicted to the story.  Yes, it was a lot of smut (a lemon every single chapter!) but I found this Edward and Jasper so fascinating.  Tuesday Midnight writes good smut, but what I especially enjoyed was the way the boys’ relationship evolved.

Raw and Rosy is complete, which at first made me very sad, but Tuesday Midnight has been so gracious as to continue Edward and Jasper’s story in a series of outtakes, futuretakes, and pasttakes here: Raw and Rosy Revisited.  Maybe someday I’ll be able to let these boys go, but for now I love every glimpse of them we get.  🙂

Fave Fics Friday: Seven Minutes in Heaven by Tuesday Midnight

20 May

I was hooked from the beginning of Seven Minutes in Heaven by Tuesday Midnight.   High school Edward and Jasper.   Secretly attracted to each other Edward and Jasper.   Alone in a dark closet for seven minutes while their friends waited in the room outside Edward and Jasper.  Horny Edward and Jasper.

Yeah, that pretty much has my name written all over it.

The story starts with the boys in high school and goes through their college years.  It also has one of my favorite Edward/Jasper scenes: Jasper gets to play knight-in-shining-armor and save Edward from himself.  I may have swooned.

Seven Minutes in Heaven is complete, and Tuesday Midnight has also written a few chapters of Jasper POV here in Seven More Minutes.
