I'm not sure what an ode to some of my favorite fanfiction stories would be without a cover dedicated to 'The Office.' This story was the first Edward/Bella smut I read...or should I say Mr. Cullen/Ms. Swan? It was the first story I read where the characters were in their twenties.
For a lot of you it might have been your first fanfiction story. I know most of you have read it so I'm not going to go into a lengthy summary or review of the story. I will say that the story itself packs a punch and was heavily influential on me and my willingness to dive deeper into fanfiction. Was that true for you as well?
I think I have said this before, but if only the headquarters at GQ knew that their 2009 photoshoot of Rob in the corporate power suit and the perfect hair would be perfect advertising for a fanfiction story. There is such a desire to bring to life fanfiction stories through banners and videos, right? The GQ suit pictures succeeded in bringing to life a whole new character most of us never knew we were ready for---Beautiful Bastard.
And so chickadees, this month our favorite panty-ripping, full service conference or lingerie dressing room pleasure giver, elevator sex god, likes orange juice when he gets sick, brings cookies to his niece's tea party, wants to wisk us away and show us Paris IS our cover Ward!!
Stunning. Stunning. Stunning. by 17ForeverLisa.
In a lot of ways, he's our gold standard of Wards!
I know several of you are newer to fanfiction who have recently read it, and it seems it still holds up as a really well-told story. And who can argue with all the shock value sex? But there are some of us who still hold it near and dear to our fanfiction luvin' hearts, like @TwiloveSue. Months back when @TwiLoveSue was checking out the TwiPeople covers she had emailed and said she hoped we would be covering 'The Office' because that was one of her favorites. So Sue, we thought it would be fitting to dedicate this month's issue to you!!!
When kiTT told me she wanted to dedicate this TwiPeople cover to @TwiloveSue for her hospitality and for suggesting awhile back that we feature Beautiful Bastard on an upcoming cover, I couldn't think of anything to write. Sue's not hospitable. I didn't know she liked The Office, either. Just kiTTing! My bestie, Sue, has a ginormous heart. She was my roomie in Forks, the one who called me during the Twi Convention so I could try and hear the Q&A with the Holy Trinity, the one who called me from the Eclipse premiere tent city/red carpet, and the one who opened her home to me when I went to the San Diego Comic-Con last week. Her hospitality knows no bounds. I know she's read a few *coughseventeenthousandcough* fics and that The Office is one of her favorites. The Office was one of the original BIG stories and still holds a special place in the hearts of readers and ff history. And, I'll have you know, it's actually one I've read too. Love ya, Sue! Hope you enjoy the cover. ~Lisa
Hope everyone enjoys the cover and that it illuminates Beautiful Bastard in all his glory (ok well not ALL his glory *looks forward to Rob in Bel Ami*) in a way that completely compliments your fond memories of the story.
And recently Creations by Jules was told me how much she loved the BB and was hoping to pay tribute to him through a future desktop, sooooooooo we decided to coordinate. Her vision of the Beautiful Bastard is just as amazing as ours and is a must see!!! Click here to go to her website and download yourself a new desktop!!!! Thanks @creationsjules for doing such a beautiful job and wanting to link up with us!
I feel like the mention of 'The Office' is going to bring up a lot of stories. Errr....I mean about many of us finding fanfiction or perhaps bonding with others over this story. Did you think I wanted you to tell me about your office trysts? Well feel free if you want to share those too, I guess!
