Story: Innocent, Vigilant, Ordinary by Oxymoronic8 [NC-17]
Summary: Bella Swan spent the first two years of her life in Forks developing a friendship with Jacob Black that finally turned into something more. As she begins her senior year of high school, a new family moves to town and Bella slowly begins to question the path she thought her life would follow. Sometimes there is a difference between what you think you need and what you never knew you wanted. Takes place during the timeframe of New Moon and Eclipse.
Characters/Pairing: In the author's words: "Jacob/Bella at first, but eventually Edward/Bella"
Category: alternate universe, angst, drama, romance, multi-part
Warning: other pairings, rated NC-17, work in progress

Reason for recommendation: What to say about IVO? Is there anyone in the fandom who hasn't read this amazingly brilliant fic? It really is absolutely one of the best in the fandom (IMHO). This is what Twilight could have (and some would say, should have) been. The characterisations are fantastic, the angst is delicious, and we get to have a look at how things could have happened, had certain events taken place at a different time. The fic also has an appreciation community on LJ - 137_104_87_0 - for those fans who are hanging out for each new chapter. Goes to show the kind of devotion this fic inspires.
