Back to the Oldskool

I'll Be Your Lover Too by EdwardsBloodType

Bella is helping her best friend Edward cope with his dark and tragic past while strugging to hide her true feelings for him. When a friend comes to visit, she will force them to recognize their deepest desires.

So thinking about what "classic" fic to recommend, I thought to look at my Favourites List. Well the third fic that I had added in 2010 was a little fic called HIGH ANXIETY. You might have read it. Well there is no denying that HA is one of the ultimate classics but to be honest I find EdwardsBloodTypes' I'LL BE YOUR LOVER TOO to be the first classic fic that I occasionally reread and my first Oldskool rec.

Best friends Edward and Bella are living together and apparently cohabiting quite happily. Bella has just come out of a bad relationship that was originally only intended to be a casual hookup. Edward seems to be coasting through his manwhore life without issue. But, you know how these things go, Bella is in love with Edward but Edward is apparently still suffering from the death of his fiancé Jane several years ago.

When an old tart comes back into town (good old Tanya) Edward begs Bella to accompany him so he doesn't have to suffer Tanya on his own. Bella agrees to the night out and what unfolds is a night of first time drugs and a threesome. Admittedly this threesome is going to blow your mind a little but not because it's just a steamy lemon but because Edward is actually also in love with Bella and believes this could be his only way to express his love for her. 

From that point there is another night of group sex (also involving a young actor Robert Pattinson) and the ramifications of what these expressions of intimacy mean for Edward & Bella. They struggle to process what the sex meant because they are unable to communicate properly to each other and this is exasperated  with a pre booked holiday to Mexico.

What brings me back though to this fic is the flawed characterisation of Edward, he's damaged & guilt ridden but not for reasons you may think. Bella also must come to terms to opening herself up to Edward without any fear. Finally combined with the insane crackling lemons this is one for the shelf.
