Fan Made Friday: Six Silent Goodbyes

In the 8 or so months that I've been a Twi-hard, I have thoroughly immersed myself in all things Twilight. I've read forums and blogs, soaked up interviews and spoilers. When I ran out of that, I discovered fan-fiction.

I've discussed some fan-fiction before, there are really some amazing stories out there. Today, I want to bring just one particular story to your attention. Well, technically it's two, as one is essentially an outtake of the other, but they are all related.

This story is a canon-fic, meaning it takes place within the context of the books. Six Silent Goodbyes, by VivaViva, gives us the perspective of each of the other Cullens as they prepare to leave Forks without the opportunity to say goodbye to Bella. I can't express enough how amazing these stories are, the author does a fantastic job of getting into the heads of each of them, bringing a mix of emotions as you read each chapter. Keep a box of tissues handy.

Following this, VivaViva also contributed her time and efforts to the Support Stacie Auction, and the winner requested another chapter, from Edward's point of view, titled The Broken Lullaby. I recommend saving this for last, and if you haven't used your box of tissues before this one, have them at the ready. I cried nearly as much reading this as I did reading New Moon.

For all the amazing all-human fanfics that are out there, nothing grabs me more than a well done canon fic. After all, the series is why I'm here at all. Give them a read, leave a review, and let me know what you thought.
