Hay Bales and Hot Bylines by KoalaLou
Summary : My entry in the Falling Into Autumn Contest. I won Judges Vote – 1st Place, Public Vote 3rd Place, and 2 Judges Picks. “My first serious journalistic field assignment was to cover the 35th Forks Fall Festival. Who do I run up against but the hottest byline in the county…I couldn’t believe this was happening. Out of all the guys in Forks, it was him. Of course it was him.”
For my mini review and some spoilers ahead, continue reading this post.
Written for the ‘Falling Into Autumn Contest’, KoalaLou received multiple awards for this sweet and lovely story. Originally a one-shot, I was so happy to hear she would be expanding it.
She hit the complete button just hours ago and I’m sad to see this story end.
The story follows Bella getting her big break as a journalist writing for the Forks Reporter. She is assigned the job of covering Forks’ Fall Festival where Edward is there representing the Clallam County Chronicles.
Koalalou writes Bella’s humorous internal monologue so well, it never fails to make me laugh. Edward being the town’s sweetheart makes Bella, among all the other females of Forks, that more flustered and have an even funnier inner voice. However, to Bella’s disappointment, the only way she was noticed by Edward Cullen in High School was when he was arrested by her dad but was later found out to not have committed the crime.
Through the story you’ll find out more about Edward and his family and you’ll see that this character is even more lovable. KoalaLou’s Bella, in my view, is a character that is completely natural and refreshing. The journey of Bella and Edward’s budding relationship is written so sweetly with tons of humour.
I highly recommend reading this story, and not just because I created the banner 😉
It is such a light and heart-warming fic and I’m so sad to see this story come to an end.
