Welcome to Twilight: The Missing Pieces

Are you a Twilight junkie? If so, you’ve come to the right place. You will know what I mean when I say that some important pieces are missing from Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga. The biggest missing piece is the second half of Midnight Sun, Edward Cullen’s  Twilight story. In fact, Edward’s been given short shrift in a number of ways. This website is here to correct that.

Here at “Twilight: The Missing Pieces,” you will find a new version of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga as seen through Edward’s eyes. The first book, which I call Midnight Sun, Part II, consists of the missing second half of Ms. Meyer’s Chapter 12, “Complications,” twelve additional chapters, and the “Epilogue.” As with all of the books, you can read Midnight Sun on its own or alongside Bella’s story as told in Twilight.

The second book I tackled is Breaking Dawn: Edward, beginning with what I call the Honeymoon Series, a set of chapters penned by Edward chronicling the Cullens’ South American honeymoon—the important missing bits. (You all know what I’m talking about.) Readers then pressed for more, so I wrote the Nuptials Series (the Cullens’ engagement and wedding), the Pregnancy Series, the New Life Series, and finally, the Doomsday Series, completing the book.
[Note: Breaking Dawn: Edward is sexually explicit. Chapters flagged NC-17  are intended for mature readers only.]

The next project selected by a poll of readers was New Moon: Edward, followed by Eclipse: Edward.

Somewhere along the way, Edward wrote a booklet advising other vampires who find themselves in his delicate situation on how to care for their human companion/lover/spouse and keep them alive. It is called the Vampire’s Guide to the Care & Maintenance of a Human Being

Edward also wrote the Private Diary of Edward A. Cullen, which contains secrets, stories, and musings not recorded elsewhere, including tales of Renesmee’s childhood. Twenty years later, he began a second diary called Twenty Years On in which he tells of events that occurred between the years 2012 and 2033, including tales of Jacob and Renesmee’s life together (ongoing).

Finally, Edward is began a travelogue called Together Away, which tells of his and Bella’s getaway to Florida, Isle Esme, and Europe in the year 2015. (Courtesy of guest author Julie Vans/J.A. Canter. Check out her erotica website here.)

I hope you enjoy these continuing stories of Edward, Bella, and the Cullens. If you know someone who would like them, pass the word.

Outside the world of Twilight, the menu item  My Books describes my original work, a series of novels about unconventional love set in the fictional town of Amity, Kentucky. The first book, titled The Snake Handler’s Daughter (formerly Miss Martha Browne), has been published by the New Atlantian Library, and I’m currently drafting my second, working title Trouble in Amity. The major characters include a snake handler’s aging daughter, a disgraced priest with the power to heal, a church-going gay couple with differing standards of fidelity, a pair of precocious, identical twin boys, a randy divorcee, and a male cross dresser with an ax to grind. Shake and stir.

    I do not even know what to say right now.
    At all.
    The way I feel about the Twilight Saga is becoming extensively more and more… troubling for the lack of a better word. Ever since I read Twilight in one sitting, my appetite leaving me for a day in the process, I’ve had complex feelings surrounding it. Then I read Midnight Sun. I have to say, Edward is a far more entertaining perspective to read. You’d almost fancy Bella shallow in her concerns, comparing them to Edward’s.
    Okay. Every year or so I become addicted to the saga again. I’ll reread the books. Or to save myself from the agony of my emotions, I’ll reread some sections of the books, most especially all of Midnight Sun. Is it strange that New Moon is my favourite book in the series (except for Midnight Sun)? Am I a sadist to enjoy the depression the characters feel when separated? Especially Edward’s. I wanted Bella to be crueler to him in the end. Not for vengeance or anything. Just to see his pain. It shows his love for her… right? Yeah, I guess I am a sadist.
    Anyway, to repeat another commenter’s words, I hate hype. So I’ve always disapproved of my obsession with the Twilight Saga. Unfortunately for me, I’ve had to agree with most of the complaints surrounding it, though many do seem to ignore some intrinsic subtleties in the first book. Many seem to forget that Bella is smart. She gets good grades. She’s selfless and brave. At least that is how Meyor attempts to portray her. Bella’s character, although not as interesting as Edward, is not at pathetic as most people seem to believe she is. It is just in comparison to all the VAMPIRES (who have photographic memory and infinite time to perfect their intelligence and skills), that she seems this way.
    I’ve gone off on a tangent. Sorry. Bella, in many ways, still annoys me. That’s why I prefer Edward’s perspective I guess. Regardless, after finding this website, I feel dread rising in me at all the time I will dedicate to reading in the foreseeable future. I already I have problems with time management. What is going to happen NOW?
    I’ve wasted so much time rereading the saga again and again and again. I’ve wasted so much time imagining New Moon and the other books from Edward’s perspective.
    So to end a needlessly long comment, filled with pointless details I’d advice you to skip (haha), thank you for taking the time to write and upload this. You’ve saved me the trouble!😉

    So I’m a huge fan!! I’ve read each one of EPOV atleast 10 times. Personally I enjoy comparing both books. You wrote them exactly as I’ve envisioned it, I cannot thank you enough for completing the pieces for me. Nothing worse then an unsolved mystery to keep you up at night. One character that really fascinates me is Tanya from the Denali coven. I don’t know why. I was wondering if you have anything written from her view or of her past, I would really love to read it

      Hi Sala,
      I’m so glad you’re enjoying the website. All of the stories here are written from Edward’s point of view, but he tells us more about Tanya in the Private Diary of EAC. If you click on that link and scroll down to the legend at the bottom, you’ll see that the story titles are color-coded as to their contents. There are a few Denali coven stories included. In my version, Tanya was a little more trouble for Edward than we realized…😉 -PAL

      Hi Amisha,
      Thank you for your note. From the beginning of Twilight, and especially the first half of Midnight Sun, I felt a kinship with Edward and had a sense that I could understand his motivations. So I tried to put myself in his shoes and imagine how he would feel and act based on what Stephenie Meyer had written about him. It got easier as I went along. Certainly, my version of Edward’s story differs greatly from what Ms. Meyer would write if she were to finish Midnight Sun, but I wanted at least to have a version of his tale that I could read in full. Writing this one satisfied that craving. I don’t have the same ability to crawl inside Bella’s head. I find her difficult to understand. My co-writer on this website, Julie Vans, relates better to Bella and writes wonderfully from her point of view. -PAL

    Hello PAL,

    First, thank you so much for your work on Edward’s version of the Twilight Saga! He is my favourite character too; I am a little like him, quite wordy and learned, and musical too; and I sometimes used to be prone to Byron-style brooding as well…! I’ve especially enjoyed reading your version of New Moon through his eyes; strange though it may sound, I did really enjoy that book.

    In fact, I read a really interesting article about New Moon as a piece of literature strongly influenced by melodramatic conventions, and realised that I had enjoyed the novel in part at least because I am one of those readers for whom the melodramatic, particularly what the author termed “occasions of exaggerated suffering prior to a joyful reunion”, is rather appealing… (The article is called “Unconditionally and Irrevocably”: Theorizing the Melodramatic Impulse in Young Adult Literature through the Twilight Saga and Jane Eyre, by Katie Karpuch, published in the Children’s Literature Association Quarterly, Volume 37, Number 2, Summer 2012, in case you’re interested!)

    But another reason that I enjoyed New Moon was that I was gratified with its basic premise; I was glad that Stephenie Meyer had chosen to write a separation between Edward and Bella (though judging by her account of beginning to write New Moon on her website, ‘chosen’ may not be the right word…!). I wasn’t at all surprised that Edward would attempt to leave Bella; I felt he would be as aware as I was of all the reasons that he should not be pursuing a relationship with a human woman. He’d already mentioned in Twilight how he was taking her away from the human world, and threatening her life every moment that they were together. His longing to be with her overcame his grave misgivings about the cost of their relationship to her, for a time, until the incident with Jasper. This event brought all of his original concerns back in sharp relief, and triggered a rush of the latent feelings of self-loathing and disgust that he had with himself over his vampire state.

    So when I realized that a break-up was the direction in which New Moon was headed, I was not displeased; in fact, I approved: I thought it was a realistic plot development, true to Edward’s attitudes as a character, as Stephenie Meyer suggested; and had I been in his place, I too would probably have made an attempt at discontinuing the relationship with Bella. However, when I got to the chapter in the woods, when Edward is ending things, I did not approve of much of his words and his strategy. As it became clear that he was going to lie to Bella, to suggest that he no longer cared for her, I put my head in my palm and went, “Oh no Edward, don’t do that…!”

    That, I feel, more than leaving itself, was his transgression. He could simply have said to Bella something like this: “After what happened with Jasper, I’ve come to the conclusion that I have to leave and end my relationship with you. The incident proved that you’re in serious danger from us, no matter how careful we try to be. You’ll either be killed, sooner or later, or I’ll have to change you. I’m not willing to do either. You’re very important to me; I’ll never forget you and I’ll miss you hugely, but I think I have to do what is right, and that is to leave and stop putting you in danger. I’m sorry to do this, but it is my decision.” In insinuating that he was tired of their relationship, that he’d grown tired of pretending to be human and needed a change, he not only robbed her of the future she wanted with him, but cast a stain of doubt over what she’d thought had been loving and happy times already spent together.

    So: why did he do that? Either a) he’s cruel, patrician and arrogant, believing that he can manipulate her thoughts and feelings by telling her lies; or b) he’s frightened, angry, grieving and bewildered. I have some theories, which thankfully move the interpretation more in the direction of b) than a); and I keep on thinking of writing a post-New Moon reconciliation and clear-up between these two sweethearts of ours. Your large body of work on the Twilight Saga inspires me to think I perhaps can, and should.:) I’d like to hear what your thoughts are on his conduct in that forest conversation!

    Preamble over, I’m full of praise for your version of New Moon through Edward’s eyes. It ticks loads of boxes needed for a great story: in-depth research into places, people and events, as with favela de Rocinha and the colonias; descriptive language that allows the reader to imagine these places and people; some of the same wondrously humorous dry language from Edward that Stephenie Meyer gave us in her originals (“I stood out like an Inuit at a tanning salon.”); and an account of Edward’s ebb-and-flow descent into paralysed grief that is convincing and touching. Between Edward’s increasing struggles to continue his pursuit of Victoria, against his own growing inability to think of anything other than his lost love, and his actions when he “lets the grief have him” for a while, as he phrased it in New Moon, there’s enough going on that the story is most definitely not boring.:)

    I loved the easy togetherness, that sense of warm attachment and comfortable enjoyment, that you captured in your descriptions of their “gray Sunday out-and-about days of fun” before the events of Bella’s birthday. The simple joy of those moments stayed in the mind and made the later accounts of Edward’s grief more powerful and believable. And I also really enjoyed your treatment of Edward’s sexuality, including those subtle allusions that I thought were there in the section at the casino and the motel during the Shreveport chapter. Thanks so much for your work!

      Hi Anna,
      It’s fun to read your comments because you’ve clearly spent a lot of time thinking about the Twilight Saga, and particularly New Moon, in great depth as a piece of literature. Literary analysis is one of my favorite pastimes.:-)

      As to your question about why Edward chose to devastate Bella with lies about his leaving, his reasoning seemed clear to me, and I made an attempt–though perhaps not effectively enough–to highlight it in his version of New Moon. In my view, he knows Bella well enough to understand that unless she is absolutely convinced he no longer loves her that she will never let go of him. She would remain single the rest of her life, pining for him, and not pursue the human existence he wants for her, in which case, the entire act of leaving her would have been for nothing. The best possible result of his lies would be for Bella to hate him, and for her hatred to break the heart connection they’d shared so she can move on to pursue a happy human life. Hurting Bella was intensely painful to Edward, but as a perfectionist in all things, he was determined to kill her love for him. He only partly succeeded, I believe, because Bella still loved him, but became convinced that he’d never loved her, or at least that he could never be satisfied with a human such as herself over the long term. In this way, unfortunately, she didn’t turn her hurt outward into rage at him, but inward, and easily accepted that she simply “wasn’t good enough” for him.

      I think both your A) and B) options are correct. Edward uses the patrician, arrogant side of himself to convince Bella of his words, while underneath the surface he is angry, bewildered, and grieving terribly. A) is a side of him Bella will recognize and insofar as he can project it effectively, she will believe what he is saying as “that” Edward. He is attempting to be selfless by being brutal.

      I’m so glad that you enjoyed New Moon. By necessity, I had to put more of myself and my imagination into that book than any of the others. (Not counting the diaries.) I tried as best I could to crawl inside Edward’s skin and feel how he would have felt. Yes, I think he must have physically missed Bella as much as he missed her emotionally. She’d awakened his “human side”, including his sexuality, and once a vampire is changed, he never changes back. He can’t return to the solitary comfort he existed in before he met her. In Eclipse, you’ll see that he struggles even more with his awakening sexuality because Bella is always trying to push the envelope.:-) I’d be glad to hear any thoughts you have regarding the other books as you go along. Best, -PAL

        Hello PAL,
        Heh heh, yes, literary analysis is a favourite pastime of mine too… I had half an hour’s worth of material after my brother and I sat and watched the Avengers and I compiled an analysis of the plot, characterisation, dialogue, motifs and themes!

        I’ve thought about New Moon in such depth because I’ve always been intrigued by how a book so full of sadness can draw some people, myself included, so much. My tastes aren’t generally for the tragic; I don’t listen to gothic rock or typically pick poetry full of trouble and pain. But I had an episode of depression when I was younger, and though it wasn’t heartbreak-related I found when I read New Moon that Stephenie Meyer’s account of Bella’s grief really reflected my experiences of the depressed state. How time passed slowly; how her reactions were dulled or muted; how she looked for easy distractions; how she had nightmares; how she was less aware of other people’s states of mind because of her own consuming pain; and how the pain was not just one of loss, but of feeling that she herself was a lost cause, defective, insignificant. On p. 294, after she has realised that Jacob is a werewolf, she says, “What did this say about me? […] I knew the answer to that one. It said that there was something deeply wrong with me. Why else would my life be filled with characters from horror movies? Why else would I care so much about them that it would tear big chunks right out of my chest when they went off along their mythical ways?”

        When I read that last sentence, I wanted to cry for her. Her grief over Edward lurks below everything; her pain at being abandoned and forgotten, an insignificant and insufficient item discarded by her mythical Romeo who naturally has bigger and more interesting things to move on to, is so strong that it breaks to the surface even in the midst of her incredulous and aghast shock at discovering what Jacob is. That portrayal of depression, and its attendant feelings of worthlessness, resonated very powerfully with me, for some years after I’d recovered… Interestingly, I’m a lot happier these days, and I’ve found now that in parts of New Moon where I once saw myself, I no longer do. I suppose that’s a good thing.:)

        Thanks for your reply to my more general comments about New Moon as well! I thought your theory about Edward’s conduct in the forest, that his essential motivation for lying about his own feelings was the desire to stop Bella loving him, had come across in your writing, so no, it didn’t come as a surprise when you shared it in your reply to me.:)

        I certainly would agree that, at that point, Edward wanted to stop Bella loving him (though of course, simultaneously, he very much didn’t want to lose her love…!), because he thought she shouldn’t love him. His cruel treatment of her in the forest conversation was definitely born out of that desire; though I had thought he had that desire, to make her stop loving him, mainly because, disgusted with himself as he was, he wanted her to hate him as he felt he was in fact hateful, vile and loathsome, and should be hated.

        Furthermore, he felt he had to leave in order to stand a chance of her life, and, in his philosophy, her soul, being saved from death or transformation respectively; and loving her as he did, he would find it much harder to leave and to stay away if he knew she still loved him very much and would wish him back. Wounding her, in that analysis, would have been part of an attempt to drive a wedge between them, in order to keep himself away…

        On top of that, it seemed to me that he might conceivably have been almost exasperated with her for her steadfast refusal, throughout the previous chapters of the saga, to recognise his otherness, his status as her natural predator and the danger that he and his kind posed to her. Left fighting the battle to keep her safe, with little acknowledgement or cooperation from her, I thought he could conceivably have become quite aggravated, finding her actions irrational, and in the midst of all his other intense emotions he wanted somehow to force her to see sense, to judge and act more prudently… His cruel words of disregard, in that sense, could have been partly in frustration at her for not helping him more with the danger spots of their relationship, and for pressurising him relentlessly over the vampire transformation she desired but he thought would be an abomination…

        Maybe you are right in your suggestion that Edward felt that Bella would have to become capable of another relationship, with a human, in order for his act of leaving her not to have been in vain. Personally, I’m inclined to feel that it wasn’t his prerogative to determine where and how she was to find happiness once he was gone. He had the right to decide that he wasn’t prepared for her to be killed or transformed, as those outcomes were directly related to actions on his part; and each person has the prerogative to make their own actions accord with their philosophical stance. But was it for him to determine that for her life to be worthwhile it must include a second relationship? Was it not for her to decide whether she needed to move on and find someone else? Perhaps, in fact, even if it meant that she could not move on as in her heart of hearts she still hoped he might come back, she would have preferred to have been left the comfort and affirmation of knowing that he had indeed loved her while they were together.

        That certainly would have been a happier outcome than the one that sadly eventuated in New Moon! As you mentioned, his plan, to change her love to hate by pretending to be tired and bored with her, didn’t have the effect that he intended. I think it was a mistake on Edward’s part to imagine that love could so easily be changed to hate… And it surprises me that he didn’t see how very likely it was that she would respond to his diminishing and dismissing her not by getting angry at him for being disdainful and unpredictable, but by accepting that she was indeed inadequate. There were many indications of it throughout the narrative before that point; I’m thinking right now of the exchange on p. 21:

        “But what would I do without you?”
        “Whatever you were doing before I came along and complicated your existence.”
        He sighed. “You make that sound so easy.”
        “It should be. I’m not really that interesting.”

        On other subjects, yes, I really did like your New Moon.:) I thought you did a wonderful job of not sounding like you were imitating another writer, while nonetheless remaining entirely faithful to that author’s universe and characters. And yes, I agree with you about Edward missing Bella physically as well as emotionally.

        Aaanyway, this has turned into another massive essay for a comments section, so I’ll leave it at that! Thanks for listening to my expositions, and good luck with whatever projects you’re working on at the moment!

        Bye for now,

          I think you’ve hit precisely on Edward’s fatal character flaw: He believes he knows what is best for Bella and makes it his business to try to determine and control the course of her life. I think as a supernatural being he feels that it’s up to him to protect Bella from his world, and that that gives him the prerogative to make decisions for her. However, he must come to learn–as I believe he does–throughout Eclipse and much of Breaking Dawn that Bella is the mistress of her own fate. Whenever Edward tries to control Bella’s life decisions, he ends up making a mess of things. -PAL

          Yep, there were a host of errors there! It was an insult to her intelligence to imagine that her thoughts and emotions could so easily be transformed; it disrespected her autonomy to present her with falsehood while he was allowed to know the truth; and it showed a lack of awareness of her general mental state and how likely it was that her self-worth would be decimated by such words. I would have been willing to let him make amends, had I been in Bella’s place, because I would have understood that he had been very frightened, upset and confused when he acted that way; but I definitely would have expected a recognition that a lot of it just wasn’t acceptable, and a promise that it wouldn’t happen again.
