GuestFicRec: Finding the One of Worth


I was thrilled and nervous when I got the opportunity to recommend a story here on TLYDF. I immediately pulled up my list of fics and started scrolling through them, looking for a worthy AH story, since I seem to be drawn to them. I like all genres but I find the relatable AH stories very interesting and fun to read. One of my favorites popped out at me because the review count was lower than I expected. When I read a story so extraordinary I automatically assume that everyone else is reading it as well. I can assure you, this is one you should be reading.

A Person of Worth has a great deal of mystery to it. Tnuccio keeps your attention by revealing bits and pieces as the story progresses. It starts with a grieving Bella trying to get through the anniversary of a tragic event, yet you don’t know what it is, only that this event has changed her life entirely. This particular night Bella wanders into a bar on her way home from work, in hopes to lose herself from her pain. Only to be captivated by the man baring his soul on stage through his music. She generally keeps to herself and has very people that she lets in, one of which is Jasper Whitlock. I absolutely adore this Jasper and the relationship that tnuccio has created between them, along with Alice who is Jaspers girlfriend. They are always there for her, encouraging, yet never pushing too far to break out of the cage she has created around herself.

Switching to Edwards point of view, we find another tortured soul full of mystery. Yet he lives his life as an accomplished and very compassionate doctor and loses himself in playing music on his nights off. He’s very close with his family but he hasn’t found true happiness and worries that he never will.

This story also introduced me to my favorite original character I have come across. I usually have a hard time with original characters in fanfiction, but not in this instance. Hope is a young teenage girl who is under the care of Edward, who basically lives at the hospital and regularly checks on her even on his days off. They have a truly unique relationship. Even though she is the sick one and he is the caregiver, she helps him in ways that no one could. Seeing life through her eyes has a very strong affect on this storyline.

A few chance encounters bring Bella and Edward together, along with the whole crew. Slowly Bella begins to open up as Edward gently rattles that cage she is in, and he finds a greater meaning to his life. Showing her new things, introducing her to music, eating pie, it’s the small things that he does to pull her out of her comfort zone.

I love tnuccio’s writing style and her ability to make you care for the characters. It’s like you can see the happiness they both deserve on the horizon and you can’t wait for them to find it. Each chapter is fulfilling and keeps you wanting more. I’ve really enjoyed following this story from the beginning and I am so excited to see where it goes. Take an afternoon or an evening alone to enjoy this amazing story. It will bring a smile to your face.
Anniej13 is the reader we all wish we had. She is no noob to the fandom and has read all the greats. It is when you get a review for her that you can count yourself one of the lucky ones.
