Friday WIP Rec - The Garden


Summary -AH/OOC/M* Realizing something is missing in her world, Kate turns her scholar's mind to the issue at hand. Emmett has lost his way; his love life’s a shambles, but his professional life thrives. Their path lies before them but can they follow it?

Wow! This is one of the best fics I've read in a long time. I know it's only one chapter in, but that first chapter was amazing. I found this story through an entry to our Best Domination Ever Contest. The Request was written as a side journey to The Garden and that was just as brilliant, so if you chose to read The Garden (and I highly recommend that you do) continue on with The Request. I promise that you will fall in love with this Emmett.

So, Kate finds herself craving more then her boyfriend can give her. Through her journey, she realizes that she is a submissive. Once she connects with Emmett, her whole life changes. Like I said, it's only one chapter in, but having the advantage of reading the companion one shot gave me some insight into what is to come for these two, and I'm super excited to watch the relationship build.

This story could easily have fit under our New Stories Need Love segment too because it's a bit under appreciated. I think I know why. It's the pairing. Most people aren't going to stop and read an Emmett/Kate pairing. I'm positive that many of us wouldn't even think to seek that out, I wouldn't. I know for a fact that if the author chose Edward/Bella or Jasper/Bella her reviews counts would be soaring. So, my point here is that you have to give this story a try especially if you dig the Dom/sub stories. This one is exceptionally well written and extremely developed and thought out. I can tell just from what I've read so far. Plus, this isn't a story about being forced into the Dom/sub world. It's a consensual relationship between two adults taking what they need from one another.

This is a beautiful story and one that I fear many will miss, if not directly lead to it. Give it a try!

Okay, so I was a bit unsure when I first started reading this, but I do love me some Emmett. After reading this fic though I was completely and totally hooked. This fic was amazingly written and the author does a great job with Emmett and Kate. If you are looking for something different and completely awesome than this is the fic for you. Don't not read it because it's Emmett/Kate, read it because it is Emmett and Kate. You won't be disappointed. Winterstale is a wonderful writer and this fic deserves a lot more reviews than she has right now.

Eek, my internet has been off and on all day so I have to do this super fast! This is a fantasticly written fic that I absolutely LOVE! The o/s based off of this story is a masterpiece, and it makes this an absolute MUST read. The author has created a wonderful Emmett and Kate, and I'm sure you will love them as much as I do. Please go read it and leave this lady LOTS of love. She deserves it.
