Exciting News

We're pleased to announce that The LUV'NV will be completely revamped on February 5th. We're going to have a brand new look, a better menu, and a few changes with fresh features to better promote the under-appreciated fics and authors. The site will close on January 29th and reopen February 5th to make the shift.

In the meantime, we need your help!

Feel as though your quality fic isn't getting the recognition it deserves? Did your story exceed the review cap for the de Vill's AdVocate by a small margin?

While we're getting rid of a couple features, we will have a brand new feature called The Lovelorn. Tell us and the fandom about your story, and The LUV'NV will tweet it twice a day for two weeks.

The Lovelorn requirements:
Your story ...
♥ Must be beta'd, or well written if it's not beta'd.
♥ Must have at least five chapters posted.
♥ Has no more than 750 reviews nor an average of 30 reviews per chapter upon submission.
♥ Does not have Edward and Bella as the main pairing.

Please apply here to have your story as a part of The Lovelorn. We'd love to advertise your fic around the fandom and help get it the love it deserves.

Thanks to everyone who's been with us since the very beginning and have stuck around. We'll see you February 5th!

*** Chapter 10 Teaser ***
I sat out there for what seemed like hours, pushing the swing back and forth and back and forth.  It was freezing, of course, and there was about two feet of snow on the ground, but the cold felt refreshing.  It was eye opening, reminding me that this was, in fact, reality and California was still three weeks away.  I was lost in my own thoughts, staring at the spot where Jake had been leaning against the porch.

"Hey," came a voice from the sidewalk.  I looked up at Rose, holding a bottle of Jack Daniels and my coat.  She'd pulled her hair back into a ponytail and thrown on her pajamas and boots before heading over.  "You're gonna catch pneumonia," she chastised.

"Does it matter?"

She shrugged and took another step closer, pulling her coat a little tighter around her body and offering mine with her extended arm.  "Alone on Christmas Eve?"

I nodded.

"Me too."  She looked over to Emmett's house and sighed.  "Emmett had some things to do before his mom came to visit tomorrow, so -- he went home."

I nodded again, returning my attention to the empty spot in front of me.

"My parents are in Boca," she explained, taking two steps up onto my porch.  "Wanna get drunk?"

Pursing my lips, I looked up at her and smiled.  "Ya know, Rose -- I'd say I loved too, but I don't think that would quite cut it."

She nodded her head to the inside of my house and opened the door to walk in.  "C'mon.  You and I got some talking to do."
