Friday Completed Fic - Into Strangers


Summary - AH, AU, OOC. "...tears oozing from my eyes. I was certain that this was the last I would be seeing of him for a long time." Angry and devastated, Bella makes a decision that will change her life forever.

What a tortured little fic this was, and I mean that in a good way. Jasper and Bella have an on again/off again relationship that lasts for twelve years. It's a give and take, push and pull type of love that isn't particularly the healthiest kind of relationship. Jasper is a non-committal, "love her and leave her" type of guy, but he's young and needs to find his way. Bella is devoted, but how much can a girl take?

As far as completed fics go, this one is only nine chapters, but it's very well-developed. Chapter one was the o/s for The Love of Jasper contest, so it was an extra bonus to have the additional chapters. I love mopstyle's flow and creativity. Yes, it's a depressing theme, but sometimes you need more than just hearts and flowers. I enjoyed it.

I came across this fic earlier in the week and found it to be very well-written, and certainly not your average love story by any means. My heart broke for both Bella and Jasper in this story. They travel a hell of a road, together and apart, so don't think this is going to be light, fluffy fare. It's definitely worth reading as the author is very talented, so go check it out.
