May Author Spotlight: Nyddi

The Notebook is pleased to announce it's May Author Spotlight. This month, we are featuring the amazing author Nyddi. She has written six stories for the Twilight Fandom including: Genesis and Broken Headboards, Power Panties, and Penis Charms. Both stories are utterly amazing! If you haven't had a chance to read them, I suggest you take a change and give them a read, along with Nyddi's other stories. You won't be sorry you did, and I guarantee you'll be just like the rest of us, sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to see what she comes up with next.

 Wanna get to know Nyddi? Here's how you can...

Twitter: @Nyddi

We got the chance to ask Nyddi some questions, here's what she had to say....

1. What made you decide to start writing fanfic?

I stumbled on Fanfics over 12 years ago back when I was beyond obsessed with Anime. It started with Sailor Moon. Quickly got sucked into Dragon Ball Z and all it’s delicious, bloody violence. And the big flexing muscles. Don’t forget those.

I discovered erotic fics through that. I read sex through fics before I even stumbled on romance novels. The funniest thing is that I actually quit writing all types of fics for years. Then Twilight came along and yeah. Got sucked in again. LOL

2. Which of your stories was your favorite to write?

Honestly? Right now any of my Twilight fics. I’ve been able to broaden my imagination and its reach and considering that I’m starting to throw my love of mythology in there, it’s getting even crazier. The crazier the plot, the hotter the love scenes, more fun for Nyddi ^_~

3. Who is your favorite character that you've written? Why?

Berserkward (Edward in Broken Headboards, Power Panties, & Penis Charms). Why? He’s insane, beyond horny, loves Bella to DEATH, and once again, is insane. There’s a reason he got his name :p

4. Who is your least favorite character that you’ve written? Why?

If I had to pick one, I would say Jacob in A Debt Repaid. He was beyond what I thought he would be and came very close to really hurting Bella in his insanity. I didn’t even plan for him to be that bad, it just happened on its own.

5. Do people in your RL know about your writing fanfic?

EVERYONE. LMFAO.  I am Nyddi in and out of the cyber world. I am Nidia in both worlds as well. Two names but the same person all around, and with that comes all the pervertedness, insanity, shamelessness, and anything else that has probably left you looking like this > O_o.

6. What do you feel has been your greatest achievement to date and what to you aspire to achieve in the future?

Finishing my first book “Blood Flows Deep in the Empire” in 3 ½ weeks while having a full time job and writing my fics has got to be my greatest achievement. I am still dealing with the residual exhaustion but it was something my fans encouraged me to just go for and I will forever be grateful to my girls for that.

I love you all so hard guys <3

7. Where do you get inspiration for your stories?

I honestly don’t know. Part insane hormones + part insane imagination. Two things I don’t really take credit for. My plots just explode in the back of my head like a supernova and then spiral out of control faster than I can even sometimes keep up with. Anyone close to me who has seen it happened usually has to scream “Woman, slow down!” or something to that effect LOL

8. Do you outline your stories before writing them, or do you plot them out as they go?

I used to just plot them out as I go and I’m sure some will continue to be written that way, but now that I’m heading towards publishing my first book I just have to outline them first. It truly does make writing them a lot easier when you get down to it.

9. What are 5 things you want your fans to know about you?

-I’m Nyddi no matter where I am. If you feel like the fandom is the only place you can be yourself, I’m so sorry and I wish the people in your real life could appreciate you 100% for who you are. Not that everyone accepts me, I just don’t give a damn ^_~

-I love my fans. I truly do. During my hardest moments in life (and I have a crazy one, trust me) you guys keep me going. You guys keep me writing. THANK YOU.

-I FLUV my son. Just had to throw that one in there because Lord help me, I love and truly fear mini-me.  LMFAO

-I truly believe women should hold out ‘till they find a man that loves them as much as Edward loves Bella. I am a huge romantic aching for love, but at the same time, I ache even more for women who settle for less.  Baby girls, you’re amazing. You deserve it all. Please learn to believe that. Muah!

-In case you didn’t know by now, I have NO verbal filter. NONE.

-I’m even odder in person. And God help the people who just happen to look in my window while I’m in front of my computer (plotting, writing, on Facebook/Twitter).

 10. Who are some of your favorite fanfic authors?

-Kiya Raven

11. What are some of your favorite fics?

 “Diva Diaries”- Kiya Raven
“A Beer With the Guys”- CaraNo
“Me and Mr. Cullen”- Catastrophia
“The Screamers”- Kiya Raven
“A Taste of Honey”- SoapyMayhem
“It’s a Sign”-CaraNo
“RePeat” -Reyes139
“Breaking Trinity” -VvDeadRosesvV (If you’re reading this, PLEASE UPDATE! I’m about to kidnap Snarlward! LOL)
“Hot Bubblegum” -SoapyMayhem

And many many others, but that list would take forever to finish :P

12. What was the first fic you ever read?

So long ago, I can’t remember the title. Definitely Sailor Moon. LOL

13. What story owns your ass right now?

 Gah! So many! Do I have to really name only one? *Pouts* Fine. “Diva Diaries” by Kiya Raven.

14. What color socks are you wearing?

Gray ma’am. Yes, I look sexy in gray. Don’t make me take a picture, I’ll prove it! *Threatening look*

15. Why did the chicken cross the road?

The chicken crossed the road because it had a six pack of beer. Not only did this six pack fuck with its equilibrium and make it impossible for it to talk straight, it also spiked its hormone levels. So when it was walking down the road, drunk as hell and horny, it just happened to look to its left. Across the street? Nyddi in lingerie. Of course, the chicken is a chicken and therefore would never have a chance with her but it was drunk and like human men, the alcohol made it foolish. It truly thought it had a chance. And then it tried to cross, cheesy pick-up line ready. Alas, the poor chicken didn’t make it. Big huge Mac truck came out of nowhere. Bye-bye chicken.

True story. Nyddi was on the other side of the road and she saw it happen!

16. How do you find a needle in a haystack?

You don’t look, period. Go to the damned store. Buy another one. Don’t give yourself the headache of searching that shit out, there’s stupid people all over the place. They’re enough of a headache as it is.

17. Other than Edward, who is your favorite Cullen? Why?

 Emmett. Um...must I really answer why? *Dehydrates*

18. If you were Bella, how would you handle Edward’s leaving in New Moon?

Oh, pretty much the same. Until the moment he came back. Seriously, she forgave him way too easily. What the fuck? I mean, I love Edward and I would’ve kept him in the end but a little bit of seductive agony would’ve been good for him!

19. When writing one of your famous lemons do you A. wear underwear or B. go a la nude?

I usually come home from work and jump in front of the computer, clothes and all. So most of the time, yes, I’m dressed. Poor pants and undies, it’s all I’m saying.

 20. How many batteries do you go through in a single writing session?

When I get sucked into a lemon, I hate giving that up. So I fight to write through the horniness as much as I can. Then, when I’ve snapped and can’t deal with no more, I jump in bed with the vibe. It’s also more economical on the batteries.

21. Do you like your men to wear boxers or briefs?
Either. As long as there’s a nice body there when I take those off. *Hint hint* ^_~

22. Out of all the characters you have written who do you connect with the most and why?

All of them and none of them at once. I give a little bit of myself to every character but considering that none of them have yet to fully snap and end up in a mental ward...yeah, I hold back a bit. LOL

23. What is the funniest review you have received to date and the one that made you tear up?

I’ve had some funny reviews. I LOVE my readers. But this one I just got for Genesis chap 83:

Well Damn...poor guy. Boy do I feel sorry for her girlie bits when they
finally get down to business. I think I feel more sorry for MY
girlie bits when they finally get down to business.  How's that for brutal

LMFAO!!! Killed me!

As for the one that teared me up? I’ve had a few of those, too. But this one here was one of the biggest compliments I’ve ever gotten and yes, I teared up everywhere at it :p

I cant remember if I ever reviewed your story, so here it is: You write the hottest lemons ever. I've read thousands of fics and one shots, and NO LEMON COMPARES TO YOURS. I've read them again and again, they're so fucking hot. Im not being nice. They are. I've had to change my panties about 20 times. I love how their bodies betray their attraction for each other.And to say the wait for chap 19 is killing me is an understatement. Edward's wet dream...UNGH. When he dreams she's fucking his abs, that is SO HOT. And when he fucks himself into oblivion afterwards...*change panties again*. I love that Bella was untouched before him. So pure but at the same time so fucking naughty. They are made for each other. And when she rides his face...hottest fellatio ever. Really. I also love how responsive she is to him. I bet he does too x) And chapter 6. NO.WORDS. How he fucked her even if she was a virgin, he tore her apart. And she loved him. AND IN VERSAILLES. When he cant stop himself and eats her in the freaking Queen's room. And he talks dirty to her in FRENCH. So.Hot. Nyddi, hands down, you write the best, hottest, panty dropping lemons EVER.

Title: Don't You Remember

Author: BellaClary

Rec: This is by BellaClary, and let me tell you..she loves angst! I love it as well which is why I am so incredibly taken by this fic! It has Bella getting married to Mike in two days and Edward showing up on the night of their rehearsal dinner. CHAOS ensues!!! There is so much longing and lust in Edward and Bella's conversations and touches and yet you are told there was a reason that it didnt work out. There is a reason that Edward LEFT Bella way back when! What is it you might ask!? Tell me, tell me?! She doesnt tell you until the 12th chapter and it is definitely worth the wait. It is nothing like you expected, I've noticed so many twists and turns in this short fic and I just love it. The emotions are palpable and the story is relate able. Mike is also the biggest asshole in the entire world and that always helps ;) Please check out this fic!

Now for a few quick rec's from Notebook Admins...
