Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!
I love myself a good parody. I also love myself a good crossover. You can imagine how delighted I was when I found a fanfic that falls into both of the these categories. This week’s fanfic combines both my favorite and least favorite pieces of the vampire genre into one. That’s right, some blessed soul combined Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight into a fun little one shot that will make any Buffy fan smile with delight.
This week’s Awesome Fanfic Monday goes to Dear Edward, I’ve Indulged and I Regret by I Was NotA Robot of Fanfiction.net.
The reason why I chose this story is because I feel like this is one of the many awesome ways Buffy would legitimately deal with a vampire like Edward. It’s a little sneaky, but it has that snarky charm that I always found enchanting about our favorite Slayer. The story starts off with a letter from Bella to Edward and in this letter she confesses that she does, in fact, find his behavior to be creepy and weird. She pretty much says what we were all thinking when we read Twilight (
I totally would have been into Twilight if I had been 12 when it came out, shhhhhh our secret).
Definitely read the story all the way through to the end. It starts off as a simple parody of Twilight, but then at the end is a wonderful gem that brings in Buffy. I Was NotA Robot did a great job of making the parody fun and totally plausible in the world of the Slayer. I honestly believe that Buffy would have done what she did in this fanfic.
What’s your favorite fanfic parody? How much fun do you think Buffy would have taking out Edward? Let us know below!
