TwiCarol Brings You Some Light In The Dark

Hey everyone! Sorry that I've been MIA for a while. RL has been a nasty bitch, but here I am once again. After sort of struggling to find a fic that could compare to the epically hilarious piece of genius that is The Red Eye by badjujube (Have you read that one yet? If not, WHY?!? Btw, the last chapter of it posted this week and there's a two-part epi to follow), I started this fic yesterday & I am LOVING it!
Once More, With Feeling by WhatsMyNomDePlume

Summary - Exes and co-workers Edward & Bella are sent to investigate the strange happenings in Forks, but they might drive each other crazy figuring out what's going on in the town. And between them. Humor/Romance.

Named after one of my favorite episodes of Buffy, it's extremely well-written, original, witty, snarky & downright amazing. I have definitely not read a fic like this one before. Sort of X-Files-y, sort of Men In Black-y, and featuring our favorite cast of characters, this is a MUST-READ. Only 10 chapters so far & it hasn't updated for a while since the author was finishing her other fic first, but what a 10 chapters they are! Here's a quick taste...

There are many types of magic in the world. There's the type of magic between a man and a woman—the sparks and stuttering hearts, the sex and the heat. There's the type of magic in a smile between strangers, linked in a moment by their one simple action. There's even magic in a lonesome moment, where a sinking sunset or a beautiful vista births intangible dreams and indescribable feeling.

And there's the type of magic that none of us are quite sure exists. The magic that goes bump in the night. The magic that gives you goose bumps and prickles on the back of your neck. The magic that keeps your nightlight lit well past childhood. You know… not magic but Magic.

It's a debated, nebulous idea, this Magic. Both in its existence and its content. You're not sure it's real and if it is—where does it start? Where does it stop? If there are ghosts in the world, are there zombies? And if there are zombies, are there witches? And if there are ghosts and zombies and witches, then there must be spells and curses and voodoo. Right?

That is to say, if ghosts even exist. If any of it exists. You have your doubts.

There's one very big reason that you—and the majority of the world's population—doubt whether this Magic exists. And that reason is called the Paranormal Investigative and Supernatural Services Division. While part of the FBI, PISSD operates completely covertly—most civilians, and a large number of agents, are completely ignorant of its existence, with good reason.

Truly a fantastic reading experience that will have you laughing out loud at it's brilliance. Trust. Since I've told you about this one, I thought I would remind you about the other amazing fic that this author was writing, which is now complete...
 The Best I Ever Had by WhatsMyNomDePlume

Summary - Sex between friends complicates everything. Bella knows this. But she has no idea how much more Edward is going to complicate things.

I've rec'd this one before so you may know about it, but in case you don't, I'm telling you again. It's a superbly written story of good friends becoming more. I highly recommend it, as I do pretty much anything this talented lady writes. Enjoy! Have a great weekend, everyone!
