I didn't sign up to begin with because I didn't think I would have the time. But after awhile I realized how much fun it seemed and I wished I would have signed up. So after I saw that another member decided to drop their story I knew I didn't want anyone to go without one. I jumped in and I think it turned out alright!
I couldn't choose just one to work with so I tried to incorporate all three into the story.
Many of us have a fic “type.” The sort of story we know we’re going to click on based upon the main characters, the universe, the rating. “Dirty Talk” is a wake-up call for that mindset – a reminder that truly well-written stories can draw us in, engage us, regardless of length or the name a character happens to carry.
Without getting into the whys and wherefores, I would not typically have chosen to read a Rosalie story prior to reading this tale. Note: Prior to reading it.
Celesticbliss, often deftly weaving the tale with an economy of words, manages to invest the reader in the fortunes of both widower Carlisle and practical phone sex worker Rosalie. He struggles with his emotions for a disembodied voice while Rosalie finds herself feeling beyond the reigns of professionalism. These are layered characters with insight and passion. Carlisle ritually moves his late wife’s picture before engaging in certain activities. Rosalie borders on guilt about not wearing the matching bra and panties she believes Carlisle would appreciate.
The dialogue, such as “Yes…God please keep talking," is that rare combination of realistic and sensual. Both characters struggle to maintain the role into which they find themselves cast. We see their mutual struggle in moments when “Carlisle let[s] another moan escape while Rosalie bit[es] her tongue to keep hers in.”
There is a history for each character that we learn as the story unfolds, but we wind up caring more for their futures. The end is satisfying, but still leaves the potential for further adventures, if celesticbliss should choose to bless us with them.
