#3 HYDRAULIC LEVEL 5 (author – primarycolors, the index)
-Probably my favorite breakup fic I've ever read. Bella and Edward are both really flawed and neither of them is villanized for the sake of angst. It's also a fic that gets mental illness right in my opinion.
#2 ***TIE*** ART AFTER 5 / FALL TO RUINS ONE DAY (author – sleepy valentina, fanfiction.net)
-This author is brilliant and her Bella's are always my favorite, her Edwards are great too. What I love so much about damaged Bella in Art after 5 is she doesn't make Bella a victim or martyr, and Edward's love doesn't fix all her problems. She's got to work her issues out before they can really be together and work. What I love so much about both these stories is it has really well-written E/B romance but I enjoyed it for Edward and Bella as characters too. She lets them be relatable but really messy and flawed too. Which to me are the best types of characters.
#1 FIREFLY IN SUMMER (author – primarycolors, fanfiction.net)
-I cried the first time I read this. This is my favorite fic Edward I've ever read. It's really angsty but there is a HEA. But warning, it does have rape, it's not really described but you do know it happens. So if that's a trigger for you, maybe don't read this one.
