Story: New Kiss by winsomewords [M]
Summary: When Bella befriends Alice Cullen and finds herself falling in love with her new friend’s brother, Edward, she finds his aloofness is only a window into an unexpectedly dark secret. Helping him overcome the past proves to be harder than she thought.
Characters/Pairing: Edward/Bella
Category: au: all human, romance, angst, humour, multi-part
Warning: N/A

Reason for recommendation: winsomewords finished this only recently and really took us on a wonderful ride. Through Edward & Bella's developing relationship, their ups & downs - the story has the right amounts of angst and humour to keep everyone happy.

Story: A Brand New Sky to Hang the Stars Upon by byhelenahandbasket [M]
Summary: After a broken engagement turns her world upside down, Bella has a new roommate and a new life. Who will help her recover?
Characters/Pairing: Edward/Bella, canon pairs
Category: au: all human, romance, humour, multi-part
Warning: work in progress

Reason for recommendation: This story is BRILLIANT and sucks you right in from the get-go. Edward & Bella want each other but of course they're completely blind as to how the other feels about them. Throw in sharing an apartment (and a bathroom!) and much fun ensues!

Story: What a Scene by seekingwords [M]
Summary: After losing the single most important thing in her life, Bella Swan is sent to live with complete strangers, including the charismatic but secretive and quick-tempered Edward Masen. Very loosely inspired by the book/movie White Oleander.
Characters/Pairing: Edward/Bella
Category: au: all human, romance, drama, multi-part
Warning: work in progress

Reason for recommendation: Edward and Bella are slightly younger and in a much different circumstance to what we usually see - they are both foster children to the same woman. "What a Scene" follows their growing relationship and the everyday life they live. This story is refreshing, captivating and I get excited everytime I see a story alert from FF.net pop up for this one.

I probably shouldn't put this one here, due to it's 'on hold' nature but anyway...

Story: A Matter of Convenience by spotzle [M]
Summary: Bella Swan. Edward Cullen. One apartment. One year. Throw in some UST, a heaping spoonful of jealousy, and a pinch of meaningful looks and deliberate misunderstandings. Toss them all in a blender, then hit puree.
Characters/Pairing: Edward/Bella
Category: au: all human, romance, humour, angst, multi-part
Warning: work in progress

Reason for recommendation: This story has actually been abandoned/indefinitely put on hold but I maintain that it is STILL one of the best AU All Human fics in the fandom. spotzle has done a phenomenal job with this - I only hope that she continues with it at some point!! Especially considering where she left them! *dies*

I just came across this post and wanted to say thank you for the kind recommendation despite it's up-in-the-air status.

(If I was going to leave them anywhere, it may as well been like that. :))
