I loved this episode. I think all of the storeis mentioned are worthy honestly. They are great. I have to say this for classics though. I really respect stories that are not just a crossover combination of Twilight and then some other source. Like TAAB is one of my fav picks, but it was based off a movie with the same subject matter and the twilight characters were plugged in. Or HIPS, which is one of the better written stories, but it's based off "Hidden In Plain Sight," an American cable series I watch. The most classic of the classics are twilight adaptions that stand on their own and don't just plug characters into another story. i think Wide Awake is a good example of this.

I agree originality is very important when considering whether a novel or film should be recognized as "classic", but since fan fiction is derived from someone else's original works anyway, I think it's okay to be relaxed that criteria. But I agree there are those out there who basically just substitute the Twilight characters without any original thought.

Also, I think a story has to be completed to be considered a classic. "Classic" just feels like a very loaded definition, and I would have high expectations for any story with such a title. It's the kind of thing you have to earn, and finishing a story is an important part of it.

i think the story you couldnt think of was life's little choices by my-bella. thanks for all the hard work you guys put into making a great podcast!

ps. i'm going to squeeze a question in here - what has become of the good stories that were taken to try their hand at being published - specifically Whirlwind and the bella reporter one whose name is escaping me...

I think pastiche briefly mentioned You've Kept Me Waiting by Mandi1 (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5069284/1/Youve_Kept_Me_Waiting). I was surprised no one else did. To me, this is the classic Alice/Jasper fic.

A lot of amazing stories are on that list, not gonna lie. A bit sad you didn't add Behind Enemy Lines by adorablecullen(s?) though. And I also wanna add that I think The Office might become a classic in the future.

Shannon: Generosity of Artemis by ljv.

I'm catching up on episodes, so this comment is a little late, but I was shocked to not see Only Human by Amethyst Jackson on the list. That's one I recommend to everyone and one of the first chapter fics I remember reading and falling in love with.
