Bella thought being dead would make things easier, but for once there’s more at stake than simply staying alive. And somehow, Forks is still at the heart of it all....
Warnings: Spoilers for Eclipse. Graphic sexual situations; graphic violence.
Disclaimer: If I was Stephenie, this would be the plot of Breaking Dawn. Since I’m not, this fanfic is being posted without profit, but with smut. ;)
Author's Note: A huge thank you to my exceptionally talented beta and friend, snuggle_muggle. Her support, suggestions, and constructive criticism have been invaluable to me, and this fic would not be the same without her amazing input. All remaining mistakes are mine alone. :)

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3: Light filtered between the blinds, casting stripes over Edward’s skin. I thought it looked like a roll of film, black and white and decades old, reeling over the sheets.
