Author’s Introduction (BD)

BREAKING DAWN:  Edward

If you have read the Author’s Notes for Midnight Sun: Part II, then you know the story of how these writings came to be. As I penned the missing half of Midnight Sun, I was fully aware of another missing part of Bella and Edward Cullen’s story: the sex scenes.

Reading the Twilight Saga, I felt let down after having plowed through three books building to the consummation of the lovers’ relationship, only to reach the honeymoon and find that the story faded to black, taking up again at a point after the adult scenes. Of course, such is required for fiction intended for young adults, but judging by the popularity of the Twilight Saga, its readership extends far beyond teens and preteens. Also, the explicit details of Bella’s pregnancy and the baby’s birth seem already to have broken the “mature” boundary—in gore if not in sexual content.

Considering Edward’s nature, I thought it plausible that he would write about making love to his wife (assuming the details would remain private, of course). After all, managing to do so without hurting or killing Bella was a great triumph for him and he was utterly pleased with his success. Plus, he has a prodigious knowledge of, and interest in, human biology, but no direct experience of it. His sexual encounters with Bella provide his first non-nutritional contact with a human female’s body.

After I wrote Bella and Edward’s missing honeymoon scenes, one reader request led to another until I eventually finished writing all of Breaking Dawn from Edward’s point of view. Though the entire book is written through Edward’s eyes, I divided the chapters into mini-books along the lines of the original Breaking Dawn to provide signposts amidst the large number of chapters.

N.B. The Honeymoon series of chapters and other individually marked chapters are SEXUALLY EXPLICIT and are intended  for mature readers only. Access and read them at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any offense the reader may take to this material. With that said, I hope that you enjoy them.

    I am new to twilight and have just become a fan a few months ago. I found your stories today and I am delighted. I started reading Breaking Dawn – I love it. I am looking forward to reading every one of your stories. I can see they are a labor of love. Your website is beautiful. I can’t believe you have stories on audio – it doesn’t get any better than that! That you for all that you do.

      The files are going up one at a time as I finish the editing. The website structure for BD might also change a bit. Please check back in a week or two (or sooner if things go quickly). This is a website in progress…
