his pledge to her.

I will kill the spiders. I will share my fries with you when you’ve finished all yours and are still hungry. I won’t ever pop my collar. I will never be rude to your tummy- when I hear it growl and gurgle, I promise to bend down and reply respectfully. I will eat the mushrooms when we order the supreme pizza. I will kiss the paper cuts. And the door-slammed finger. And the counter-bumped hip. I’ll try my hardest not to get annoyed when you whisper questions and comments during movies. I will be the big spoon. I will let you win at wrestling. Sometimes. Other times I will not. I will go faster. Harder. I will pull when you want. And tease you when you don’t. I will send you random txts and leave you silly gifts. not always. Not on schedule. Just whenever I want to. Whenever I think you need one. Or seven. I will check your tire pressure. And remind you to take your car in. I will hold your hand. I will love you. I will love you. I will love you.

"There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic."

2010 Age of Edward

The Age of Edward 2010

Chances are you remember this contest from the summer of 2009. It was a great success, giving authors old and new a chance to participate in a wholly unique sort of oneshot contest: writing an Edward from a particular historical era.

This year the contest commenced on August 15th and will run until September 30th, at which point all entries must be submitted.

Winners will be announced October 15, 2010.

There are two categories: literotica and young adult (for those who don’t write smut and for those who do). Also, canon will be included this time, albeit judged separately from the AH entries.
