Well, we are coming up upon the tail-end, Patrons. Only one more chapter after this one! Please try to contain your joy. (I have zip-ties if you need them.)
Our last little trip to the other side of madness was pretty tame. Rose is now being held in the basement of Cal’s house and he hasn’t really done anything to her besides make her mildly uncomfortable and spout a few nasty comments. Meanwhile James is with the sparklepires, having breezed through his conversion in less than a day instead of the canon time of three days. James takes the news that his grandfather is still alive and that they are both sparklepires disturbingly well, and then the chapter ended with the eerily calm James swearing revenge upon his enemy Cal.
Welcome once more, delighted Patrons, to another chapter of the mish-mash known as Twitanic. The high points of our last installment include James’ sparklepire conversion – which came as a surprise to no one – and one of the least interesting “action” scenes I’ve read since My Angel resulting in Cal getting away from the Cullens with Rose while the sparklepires had a lukewarm bonding scene.
It looks like I’m back with yet another chapter of Twitanic madness. Yay.
After double-jumping the shark with the revelation that Cal has been behind both the Alaskan wolf pack going after the Cullens in California as well as Rose’s kidnapping, even though there’s no way in any hell that he should know that either of them is even still alive :eye-twitch: the last chapter ended with Cal grinning an evil grin at his stepbrother after his goons tossed Rose into the basement. There’s a slight chance that the author might explain how these terribly unlikely events were set into motion, but I’m not holding my breath.
Let’s get on with it.
Well, dear Patrons, I’m back with :sigh: yet another chapter of Twitanic madness. We’ve gone past the shark-jump point, people – it only gets stupider from here.
To my utter amazement, there were actual events in the last chapter! Edward has decided on a hands-off approach to dealing with his new-found family and Carlisle has announced his intentions to take both Anna-Bella and Rose back with them to California whether they want to go or not. The rest of the Cullen clan then joined Edward and Carlisle in New York, making the entire “living in Santa Monica” portion of the plot completely pointless, and told them about the Alaskan “wolfs” that the Magic Alice Ball detected. These “wolfs” want to make war on the clan for some reason, probably due to Jack’s conversion to the Sparkle Side. (Which they would have no logical reason to know about.)
Just to add a cherry to the chapter, Anna-Bella rushes over to Chez Cullen after the rest of the clan arrives to inform them that Rose has been abducted by Cal, the man who thinks Rose is dead yet somehow located and kidnapped her in an event that I’m sure will be explained at some point.
Sorry, that’s been happening a lot. To the fic!
Hello once more, wonderous Patrons!
In the last pile of ponderous nothing I laid before you, not much happened. There was more conversation between Edward, Carlisle, and Rose – now with the added “excitement” of Anna-Bella, who probably still has no idea what’s going on. There was then a mid-chapter jump over to James (Transitions? What are those?) who impulsively decided to rummage through the attic and pulled out a few fragments of Edward’s back story that I’m still having trouble believing. There was then yet another unexplained hop over to Jack, where the Magic Alice Ball predicted an attack by Alaskan “wolfs”, prompting the clan of supernaturally strong sparklepires (who have plenty of time to set up a defense and nearly unlimited resources to throw into the project) to run away like scared children.
If the fic follows formula, this chapter will either pick up exactly where the last one ended, or there will be a sudden and unexplained scene shift to another location and/or character.
