    Summary

    Twilight with: Nuanced characters. Consequences. Deeper relationships. Iconic scenes from the original work (with enough twists to keep you on your toes). A strong voice and sensory prose. Music references - so many music references. And an equal, balanced relationship built on mutual interests and values instead of pretty eyes and tasty blood.

    Twilight without: Self-absorbed mindreaders with anger issues who stalk underage girls. Unhealthy romantic relationships. Nonsensical plot twists. Underdeveloped concepts and characters. And gratuitous fluff of Bella making dinner for Charlie.

    All the nostalgia of Twilight you love and none of the trash you hate. Twilight, but not Twilight.

    Summary

    So, I decided I like the premise and ideas in Stephanie Myer's Twilight series but I don't care too much for how she wrote her characters and their generally poor decision making skills. I decided since I am locked up in quarantine, I'm just going to do a rewrite. It will generally follow the original story but with some, what I consider better, changes. For example I will be writing from the audience POV, not character first person. This will be a mix between the book and the movie with references to each. I apologize now for grammar and spelling mistakes. I will update when I can. I do not own nor am I affiliated with Mrs. Myer and her works. This work is simply for fun.

    Bella Swan, new kid in Forks, gains far more attention than she ever bargained for...

    Summary

    Bella Swan, age 18, moves to live with her father in the spring of 1997 to close out her senior year. She expects to spend her days watching football on TV with her dad. Little does she know, Forks is teeming with supernatural life and she soon becomes entangled with it.

    ****************************

    The forest was dark and deep, and silent. Not a cricket chirped, no owls hooting from above, not even the sound of the usual breeze rustling the leaves. A path stretched infinitely in front of me lit only by the light of the moon. To squash the nerves creeping up on me, I walked slowly and scanned the treeline for anything that may be creeping up on me. There was a figure in the distance. If I squinted, I could barely make out that it was Edward Cullen. He seemed to be glowing slightly, moonbeams refracting off his skin. the other Cullens emerged from the darkness on each side of the path, one by one. They were terrifying and hypnotic.

    I raced after the strange family, never gaining any ground, until each of them disappeared back into the woods- leaving me alone.

    Summary

    “I’ve been trying to figure out who you are,” Edward admitted quietly, after watching her concentrate on a math problem.

    She put her pencil down on the table. Every thought that Becca had, every feeling she’d felt so far today, had been crossed with her despairing mindset. She didn’t have a purpose outside of helping people. If she didn’t have a purpose, why was she alive? What was she doing, here in Forks or otherwise?

    “Well,” Becca said, glancing up at him. She smiled wryly. “If you figure it out, please tell me. I’d like to know, too.”


    In which 24-year-old social worker Becca Fitzgerald makes a life-altering decision and wakes up as 17-year-old Bella Swan.

    Summary

    Edward Cullen was not a normal teenager; of that I was certain. But knowing that did nothing to stop the pull I felt towards him. And if what he was saying was any indication, he felt some strange pull towards me, too. It was as if we were magnets struggling against hope to stay apart. I only wondered what would happen when we inevitably collided.
