All the stories above are from FF. But we will not be limiting ourselves to stories posted in that site only. In fact, we will go so far as to include some stories that have been pulled from the internet for one reason or the other, in the off chance that maybe you'd be able to get hold of a copy of it from a friend. Some of the nonFF stories that we have in mind are:

With Teeth by TalulaBlue 
Emancipation Proclamation by kharizzmatik
Just Wait by InstantKarmaGirl
My Yes, My No by LolaShoes
Blood Moon by nashstheory

Phhew! Quite the list, ha?
Trust me, they are all worth the time. If you are not convinced go to our Story Review page where we discuss and dissect these stories until they lay bare! On a second thought, maybe you should read them first! If you would like to rec us a story please send us the link. We will get back to you.
Hey guys,

Thanks to Sandra, our very first visitor to leave a comment, we have come to learn of this amazing story that definitely needs to be added to our rec list. So here it is:

Thank you Sandra for telling us about it. You sure know your angst. Please drop by again and tell us the next time you find a rare gem like that. 

Hello Twi-lovers,

It just got pointed out to us (thank you Tricia!) that our rec list lacks something obvious! How the hell did we overlook How To Save a Life ? How indeed! Any angst lover worth their salt should and must read this story. It got pulled from FF by the author for a while, but unlike most other instances the author, unholy.obsession, found it in her heart to return this treasure to its readers. So here you go:

Thank you Tricia for letting us know what a HUGE gap we were sporting in rec-ing angst stories. Stick around to keep us in line!

On a similar note, we'd like to thank elusivetwilight for leaving a comment and telling us about this NM, AU story. Thank you for the rec. We both read it. It is definitely a very well written story and we liked it a lot. Though I must say the angst level was quite low. If you like NM, AUs and don't object to angst, then you should check out My Yes, My No (I know, it's been pulled from FF! But maybe you could find a copy saved up somewhere?). The other one is called Resurrection (check out Our Dirty Little Secret page). It's more of a Eclipse AU, but I think you will like it. 

Thank you so much for all your input. Please don't stop!

That's all for now.


  1. I have just finished a story you may want to check out. Little Plastic Castle is the day in the life of Edward and Bella following a horrible accident. This story is angst at it's finest.

  2. omg. Please to be reading anything by Coquettishness. I have a soft spot for new moon canon angst.

    I suggest Pain on Pain:

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Sorry screwed up the text haha. Let's try this again. Wanted to rec a story called How To Save a Life by Unholy Obsession. It's on fan fic. Author pulled it due to some BS she was getting. I'm so glad she reposted. Angst isn't a strong enough word for this story. This author is oh so talented, wish she would write again. Some outtakes that were awesome were never reposted, sad to say. You all should give it a shot.

  5. For a really angsty read have a look at 'Glass Doors' by kissyfur on fanfiction, it's only 5 chapters long and complete. I came across it my chance and am so glad I did, it's a real hidden gem that only has 17 reviews.

  6. I think this is an amazing blog, to me a good angst is like a good orgasm with tears hehehehehe, Hit By destiny is an amazing sttory <3
