If this fic sounds familiar, it is. It was originally Bella/Paul and titled Waves for the Lyrics to Life Contest back in 2013. Then it was extended as Bella/Edward and titled Clallam Bay. Then it was pulled and published under the same title. Then I unpublished it and am now reposting as Bella/Paul AH. It's been preread and betad previously by Hood and Rach but mistakes are mine. Who knows, maybe I'll add even more here and there along the way. Otherwise, this fic is complete and I'll probably be posting a chapter once or twice a week.

My life had always been a sea of carefully laid plans, until he blew through. Cool and quiet, like the calm before the storm. It was brewing.


The drive from Chicago had been long and uneventful, much like my life, but with rows and rows of full, green trees leading the way. Not to say I'd never been given any direction. Growing up as an only child, I'd had more than my fair share. However, there came a time in every girl's … woman's life when her parents had to let go, give up control, and allow her to live hers. It was about time I started living mine. Only thing was, I wasn't sure how much living I'd get done in the sleepy town of Clallam Bay.

HMU with all your fave noncanon couples/fics.
