Our First Contest!

Here at The LUV'NV, we love our villains.Yet, we know they can't possibly spend all their time plotting world domination.

And that's where you come in.

For our first challenge, we would like you to show us that your favorite villain is more than just a one dimensional killing machine. What happens when Maria meets her one true mate or Alec and Jane take a day away from torturing for a little sibling bonding time? Show us a secret rendezvous between Peter and Charlotte during the Southern Wars. The possibilities are endless.

We want to see all the sides to your favorite villain.
Torture, love, sex, killing... All of the above? At the same time? We'll leave that up to you.

1. All stories must include at least one act of villainy.
While we do want to see the other sides to our villains, we don't want to forget that they are the bad guys!
2. Pairings: Any, even slash, so long as they are from Twilight.
3. Length must be 2000+ words. No max.
4. Lemons aren't a must, but will be accepted. Also? Please rate your fics accordingly.

Duskri123 Pursued by CareMarie

Author Name: duskri123
Stories: French Trilogy (Devine, Respirer and Amour), Someday, Up All Night and collaborating with VSPS on Corruption of Destruction. There were more, such as Living With Your Lies but I had pulled them a while ago for editing and additives. I have yet to find the time to do so unfortunately.

CareMarie: Tell us a little bit about yourself:
Duskri123: Hmm. I've never been good at this ha. I'm a bit harsh and honest but it's getting better. I have the mouth of a sailor and it's not pleasant at the best of times. I'm twenty one. Live in Canada. Mother of one ten month old son named Rohan, (pronounced 'Rowin'). Reading and writing is nothing more than an escape for me when RL is being difficult. It is most certainly a personal therapy for me. So for all those who were wondering how I could push out a chapter a day when writing the Trilogy, shit was tough ;).

CareMarie: How did you get introduced into Fan Fiction?
Duskri123: Actually, and truthfully, I googled the word 'Twilight' and fanfiction.net was one of the things that came up in the search. That was what got me to the site surprisingly. None of my friends or family outside the fandom are interested in the Twilight Saga so I had no one else’s opinions but my own to go on.

CareMarie: When you write, what kind of environment do you like to be in?
Duskri123: I like quiet, dark and nothingness to be honest. I like to think and feel what I’m writing. Usually if my story gets darker and harsher, it’s ‘cause I’m going through a tough time too or I’m thinking back to a tougher time in my life. I need privacy to write so I can create a genuine break down within the story. Usually my hubby will find me in the bathroom with the door locked in a hot bath, windows opened wide with a smoke in my hand while I type away on my laptop. That’s my personal time, my therapy and I can‘t do it when there are ten other people around. Which is one of the reasons my updates are less frequent right now.

Our 1st de Vill's Advocate — "Neverending Night" by Arianna-Janae

Have you ever noticed that most Breaking Dawn fics are mainly about Renesmee? Usually when she’s older? We might get little snippets of the family, but really the story is just about a sexually charged and frustrated teen, right?

Well, this isn't. Never Ending Night by Arianna-Janae is completely overlooked being that it is a Breaking Dawn fic, and is entirely underestimated.

It takes place not a year after Bella's change. The main plot is about the Cullens making a new acquaintance, which could be rallying forces against them. What makes Never Ending Night so moving is that you get a better understanding of what a mother to a rapidly growing, utterly unique child can be like. That it is rewarding to see that your child is a sponge of knowledge, yet, devastatingly heartbreaking to somehow always have to hold them back. Because Renesmee noticeably grows, she can only make short acquaintances and is limited to how much time she spends with someone.

Bella is also finding out that being a vampire is not all about freedom. Especially, as she is a known target of the Volturi. Oh, and Charlie! Renee! *chuckles*

Anyway ... I don’t want to tell you all of it. But this is an excellent fic. Whether you like Edward or not, you loved Twilight and now have your wish for an awesome sequel. (Is Meyer even doing a sequel?)

Check out V adVocated Never Ending Night and leave Arianna-Janae some love!
