So... I'm alive! I know it's been a long, long time but here I am. There are a few things taking place right now that I wanted to let you know. First off, Mechanicward is coming down. You, I'm pulling AWLT. It's been almost a year since the last update, and it is in a shambles! lol. I need to get to know those kids again and I need to give it a good cleaning. I promise that it will be reposted in it's entirety as soon as I finish the last few chapters. Second, YellowGlue and Lovely Brutal have invited me to join the panel of judges for their new contest. I of course agreed and am beyond flattered. It is called "The Blue Watch" contest and you can find information about it here. Last, but definitely not least... I am co-hosting a super fun Twi event with Byrd009 and Tasha! Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment is allowing us to host a commemorative Screening of Twilight! I KNOW, RIGHT?! It will be held in honor of the DVD release of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga. This may very well be or last Twilight release event ever. EVER! As if the movie wasn't reason enough to be excited, there will also be a silent auction for some incredible and rare Twilight merchandise. All proceeds will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand. Tickets are limited to about 100 people and this is a one time showing, so DON'T MISS IT! For more information check out the website! I think that is all. As always you can find me via twitter if you need me! Mechanicward will come down next Saturday, don't say I didn't warn you!!!

Hello friends!!! I just wanted to let the two or three of you that are still reading this that Mechanicward is on his way to the Fandom for Suicide Awareness compilation. The chapter is finished, has been polished by Max, and it is now in the hands of Stephanie & Alex. There is still time to donate, if you haven't already! For more info on that please visit the blog here. Oh, just one more thing, in case you are still undecided... here's a teaser!
“Gather around, guys!” My dad shouts, trying to get our attention. “There is a pressing family matter that we need to discuss.”
I look up just in time to see Alice heading toward the house. I have to stop her before Bella sees her trying to leave; she is definitely more than just an event planner in this equation.
“Alice, that includes you. Get back out here before I have to go in after you,” I say loud enough for her to hear me. Bella’s grip tightens around my waist, and I know that she appreciates my effort to include her friend.
With a smile on her face, Alice moves to stand on the other side of Bella. I see them link fingers and I know that my girl is happy.
“Today is a special day for us Cullen’s,” Dad says, looking at his family gathered around him and winks at Alice, “extended family included. This morning as your mother and I prepared for this party, Edward and Bella shared some exciting news with us.”
As soon as the words leave his mouth all eyes turn to us, and I feel Bella move closer to me. We just stare back at them and watch as they become visibly frustrated.
“Say something, babe,” Bella whispers to me.
“Yeah, babe, say something,” Alice chimes in.
I clear my throat and try to think of ways to draw this out, not because I don’t want to tell them, just because I like to torture them.
Rose gives me the bitch brow, and Emmett looks like he is about to burst. The look on his face is so funny I can’t help but laugh.
“Come on, Edward. This isn’t very nice.” Mom giggles and grabs Dad’s hand.
“You already know that Bella is having my baby, Mom, what are you worried about?”
Suddenly it’s silent… and then it’s not. Alice is first and then Rose. They hug us and kiss us and scream their congratulations to us. It’s really quite comical, until I hear the sniffles and see that my sister is sobbing on Bella’s shoulder.
Bella looks panicked as I pull Rose off of her and do my best to comfort her. “Shhh, Rosie. What’s wrong? Why are you crying?” Emmett asks as he comes to my aid.
“I’m okay, I’m really happy actually, just a little emotional,” she says but does not release her grip on me.
I rub her back and hold her tight. I know she is thinking of Ben because so am I. I try to convey my understanding without words; the words would be way too much right now. So I just let her cry and thank God I have a sister who loves me so fiercely that my joy brings her to tears.
The evening evolves into a celebration of the best kind; my mom passes out pink and blue frosted cupcakes and my dad fires up the grill again. There is drinking and singing and eventually some dancing. I hold my girl in my arms, and she whispers sweet shit in my ear that makes me wish all of ours guests would leave so I can get her naked again.
“Baby, we have to tell my dad,” she says, effectively ruining my thoughts of her naked.
“I know we do, baby girl. We can do it whenever you want. I’d like to do it in person, though. We can fly up to Washington tomorrow if that’s what you want.”
Her laugh is sweet against my neck when she pulls me impossibly closer. “It doesn’t have to be tomorrow, babe, but maybe the next day.”
“Okay, the next day then,” I whisper into her ear. "What ever you want."

Also, for those of you that may be wondering what the hell will become of my seemingly abandoned fics, I have some exciting news!!! Mechanicward lives! That's right, our favorite boy and his girl are on their way back to the world very soon. What is bringing them back from the dead, you ask? A very worthy cause, indeed. I am donating the very long overdue next chapter of A Whole Lotta Trouble to Fandom for Suicide Awareness.
But wait! That's not all! The Leukimia and Lymphoma Society compilation is back and they are getting Part 5 of Second Chances! The baby is coming, guys and you won't want to miss that. Trust. Also Part 5 is in fact the final piece of the Second Chances puzzle, so if you love them like I do you are going to want to donate to this charity. It is by far the closest to my heart.
I know that was alot of information to absorb, so I will recap and give you the links for the various charities below:
New O/S "Collide" is going to the Fandom 4 TwiFanG compilation, you can get more info here.
Part 5 of "Second Chances" is going to Fandom for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society compilation, can get more info here.
And finally... The next chapter of "A Whole Lotta Trouble" is going to Fandom for Suicide Awareness compilation, and you can get more info about this cause here.
Thank you guys so much for sticking with me!

In attempt to get back in the writing game I have entered myself in round 6 of The Twilight 25. You can find more information about the challenge at www.thetwilight25.com . I will be posting all entries on my fanfiction.net page as they are completed. The lovelie and generous Maxipoo has agreed to get on board and beta for me on this crazy journey. Everybody say "Thanks, Maxi!", because without her my words are not fit for human consumption. Seriously. So if don't already have me on alert over at ffn and are interested in checking out my new drabbles, please do so now. Oh, and don't be shy! Let me know what you think... I can take it!

I have contributed the third chapter of Carousel to FGB! I feel honored to be a part of this amazing compilation, and to be able to lend my words to this cause. A childhood friend has a daughter that was diagnosed with stage IV Neuroblastoma at five months old. Though the diagnosis and treatment have been devistating, little Maya is a fighter, and is now three years old. Her stuggle is on going and her fight is far from over. Please contribute what you can to help wipe out childhood cancer. No child should have to suffer. For more information on how you can help, click here.

So... I think donations are finally closed for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society charity. I hope you all got a chance to give to this worthy cause. The third part of Second Chances is included in the compilation, and I have to say that I am very proud of it. The banner was made by the amazing Jaime Arkin. She never lets me down, and for that she owns my heart. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donations. The compilation should be sent out soon! Enjoy! xoxo~ jac
