Twilight Fan Fiction-Wide Awake by AngstGoddess003

February 24th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books

I have to admit I’ve never read fan fiction before and even though everyone was raving about Wide AwakeI held off.  I read one chapter and then never went back.  Until Sunday and boy did I get hooked.  I read through 41 chapters that were posted and was left hanging.  I found out that two of her recent chapters were pulled from the fanfiction site because of mature content.  I was so bummed out.  Thankfully someone found out AngstGoddess moved to a Live Journal site and will continue posting chapters.

Just a warning this fan fiction is definitely not for young adults.  Edward swears a lot and I mean a lot and is pretty crude.  It initially turned me off and was the main reason why I initially did not read past chapter 1.   In this story Edward and the rest of the Cullens are not vampires.  Edward and Emmet are both adopted by Carlisle but Edward and Emmet don’t get along.  Jasper has his only family but is best friends with Edward.  Alice is Esme’s daughter and lives next door to the  Cullens.  Alice secretly has a crush on Jasper and Jasper has a crush on Alice.  Bella is Alice’s cousin and comes to live with her and Esme after her mother is murdered.  Both Bella and Edward suffer from extremely traumatic nightmares whenever they fall asleep so both try to not sleep.  Bella’s is the result of her mother’s ex-boyfriend holding Bella and Renee(her mom)hostage for almost a month and toruturing both of them before killing Renee in front of Bella.  This leaves Bella so traumatized she can’t sleep and can’t stand for any males to touch her.  Even the slightest contact throws her into a panic attack and gives her the reputation of being a freak at Forks high school.

Edward and Bella slowly become friends as they realize they both cannot sleep and get together each night to talk and help keep each other awake.  Purely through accident they find that as long as the two of them are together they can both sleep without nightmares.  As they grow closer and closer their relationship moves to a higher level but of course things can’t run smoothly and be happily ever after.

I cannot wait to find out what happens in the end.

I would definitely give what I have read of this story so far a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
