Story Recommendations of Bella Growing Old
Bella Grows Old
In canon TWS Bella is transformed to vampire right before
her 19th birthday. Some fan
fiction authors have had her stay human until middle or old age. Two of the
four stories I am recommending also deal with dementia. All four are one chapter and completed. Other
stories by LJ Summers are well written, some a bit too far away from canon for
my taste and haven’t read, some too sad.
Other stories by Eh Bien have been enjoyable, most are on the short side with little drama, just nice quiet pieces that are well written. The other two
authors I’ve read just the one story. I’ve chosen these to highlight because
they are completed and one chapter and I don't read many with Bella getting older. Comments are appreciated by the author of these stories as well as by me.
A winner in the Sort of Beautiful
Challenge, this is a story about unconditional love and the value of memory.
Jacob and Bella have been married for about forty years when the Cullens want
to visit for what is possibly the last time. One-shot. Rated K+
"Of course, if you outgrew me
- if you wanted something more - I would understand that, Bella." Bella
had once thought that was an impossibility. AU, Canon. A sort of spinoff from a
not-yet-published story. Rated K+
On the evening of Bella’s 85th
birthday, Edward reflects on the recent past and its trials, Alice helps out with the future, and Bella
finally realizes her last human milestone. E/B, AU, Character Death. Rated T
