    Nice to see new people reading PAL’s work. I plan on re-reading them again now after 4 years.
    I simply love your work PAL. (Ms. Meyer’s Midnight Sun is like an Ex without closure it hurts) xD

    Im only a little far in, but i like it so far. You should consider adding it to fan fictions website! They have an app that would make it easier to read on my phone rather than scrolling back and forth lol. Your writing style is similar to stephanies. I do wish she had finished the book.

    Hey do you have a map of the orders to read if you wanted to read these along with the original? So it’s in order and you get the full story?

      I recommend just reading the books in the order they appear in the menu on the website starting with Midnight Sun. If you want to supplement, try reading the short stories in Edward’s diary as you go along. The diary entries fill in gaps I noticed in the books as I wrote and roughly follow the order of the original books. -PAL

  4. I am so glad that I cam across your website! I recently re-read the Twilight Saga, and when I finished Meyer’s half of Midnight Sun, I was disappointed.. Until I found myself here! I am thrilled that you continued the whole series through Edward’s eyes. I’m super excited to start reading it all! πŸ™‚

    I thoroughly enjoyed this second part of Midnight sun!! I appreciate the way that you embraced Stephenie Meyer’s writing style and filled a lot of gaps that otherwise would have never been addressed. The part that made me laugh OUT LOUD with absolute delight, was Billy Black as the “alley cat” I was so curious if he was the one that had fathered Embry Call. I applaud you for selflessly doing this for the fans, who had no other “closure”. Great job!!!!

      Ha ha! I’m so glad you liked that little bit about Billy Black. It made a lot of sense to me. Plus, I loved the idea that Jacob’s best friend was genetically his half-brother. Thanks for commenting. -PAL

    I can see you spent a lot of time on these works and I applaud you greatly, as I fervently enjoyed them all. I never get tired of reading them. Though (to me) your personification of Edward is not completely on point with Meyer’s, but you can not be expected to mimic her, and you being in your own right as a writer, I understand the need to be individual. There are a few distinct discrepancies and inaccuracies, but you can’t be expected to be flawless. Thank you again πŸ™‚

      You are right that it’s impossible to reproduce someone else’s character with absolute accuracy. Everything I’ve written here is an interpretation and some of it was just for my own fun too. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed my take on things. Best, -PAL

    I have read all four of the original Twilightnovels so many times that I could probably recite them by memory, and yet I was still so hungry for more. I am so thankful for you for taking the initiative to not only finish Midnight Sun so perfectly, but also giving us the “Missing Pieces”. I have read everything you have written here so many times I could also probably recite it by heart and I beg you to go further. I know that you have probably burned yourself out on writing anything Twilight related but if you ever have the time I urge you to write more. I so enjoyed reading about the Cullens’ past in Edward’s diary and it only made me crave more information. I am a die-hard fan of your work and I would love more! Thank you for filling my mind with this fantastic world.

      Ahh, thanks so much. I understand the desire for more, more, more. I didn’t so much get burned out as I needed to move on to paying work. It’s hard to come back after that because there is so much detail to the Twilight world–all the original material plus the new facts, characters, and details one has added. It’s difficult to keep it all in your head and then to continue to extrapolate stories without making mistakes. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the work I’ve done, though. Thanks so much for your comment. xx, -PAL

        I did also want to thank you for making all of what you’ve written here free. I don’t think alot of people understand how much money you could have made with these. Have you ever thought about making these into a set that we could buy? I would love to actually be able to buy your novels here and have a physical copy of them at home to read. You should make at least some amount of money from all your work. Anyway, thank you so much for replying back to my comment, that meant alot to me. I was reading through everything here while I was going through rehab, and being able to come to this site and read helped me get clean and I wanted to thank you so much.

          God bless you on your journey, Jennifer. I’m so pleased that I could be a small part of helping you on your way. Truly. And thanks for sharing your story. Just so you know, it’s not legal (or ethical) for me to make money on work that is based on another author’s copyrighted material, and that’s why all of this is free–copyright laws. But nevertheless, it has still been worth it for all the great readers I’ve gotten to meet online and to hear that this website has meant something to them over the years. I wish you all the best! -PAL

    I feel a bit heartless posting any remarks on this because it was a nice effort. That being said I’m so sad stephine meyers hasn’t finished this book herself. The interpretation of some of the characters saddened me and we’re not the beloved characters I’ve grown to love. Example Edward referring to his groin is not something I could have ever seen him doing I feel it really exposed the writer as being a man because a woman (stephine) would know that is just to harsh for his character. Another thing that bothered me was when Edward made the Harry Potter reference it’s just not a book I could see Edward quoting its so not his “style” there were a few other things about other characters that didnt ring true like if looking deeper in to the character they would have came off differently. Sorry my remarks are not more kind. Thank you for trying.

      Fair enough. Your points are well taken. Certainly I had a little fun with the characters after I worked with them for a while and strayed from some of Ms. Meyer’s original intentions. I, too, very much wish she had finished Midnight Sun. Not having it is what led to all…this. πŸ™‚ -PAL

      What do you mean it exposes the writer as being a man? Since when is PAL a man? She is a woman! And I do not agree with your opinion that Stephenie (that’s how you spell her name) would’ve never let Edward refer to his groin. The twilight books were meant to be read ( and bought of course) by very young readers. Therefore almost zero reference to sex is found. Even after they actually had sex we only read about it from retrospective. Books for adults don’t sell in the same numbers than books for a wider spectrum of buyers.
      But Stephenie Meyer started off a different way with midnight sun. Edward has more flaws from the beginning, wishes to backhand his rivals into a wall and dispises himself for what he is (while in the twilight books Bella tries to please everyone and is astonishingly flawless for a 17 year old) In the twilight books Bella very rarely refers to her sexual needs as Stephenie would have let her if the books had been for adults. Bella is definitely the more active part. She’s the one who wants to push him to the limits, wants him to give in and surrender. Why would Edward be different? Boys much more likely think about sex all the time at that age. Girls usually don’t. He just doesn’t act on it because he is a hundred years old 17 year old one and has a lot of discipline.
      From the very rare occasions that Stephenie lets them talk about sex we know that Edward suffers from being the responsible one all the time and that Bella underestimates his self control and so on. I very much see Edward think and dream about sex a lot only we cannot hear his mind.

They do auto-convert now, but it introduces a lot of typos and I hate releasing unproofed, less than professional versions of the files. So that’s where we are.

          I absolutely hated Stephanie Meyers version of “New Moon” it seems like it was written as an afterthought to introduce the Wolves. Your version is AWESOME. it tells the readers so much about what is going on with Edward and the Cullen family during those missing months. I am so happy to know Alice is getting some direction as to her pre-vampire life. I cannot say thank you enough for your writing of one of my favorite stories.

          New Moon was a painful book for me to read (until the end, of course :-)) because I so much wanted to know what was going on with Edward. I was fortunate to discover Twilight after all the books were finished, so I didn’t have to wait to read Eclipse, when Edward and Bella were reunited. Therefore, I didn’t mind the diversion of New Moon and I felt it gave the Twilight world another level of interest and complexity, but I still wanted more Edward, as many of us did. I’d love to see Stephenie Meyer write all the books from Edward’s POV, but in the meantime…. πŸ™‚ -PAL

    Hello,

    I have read The Twilight Saga and Midnight Sun countless times, and after reading them all again from last week till 2 days ago i came across your version.
    I just finished your end to Midnight Sun, and I fairly enjoyed it.
    I loved your creative writing, and the feelings you drew out of Edward, him being aware of everything around Bella, as dazzled by her as he is.

    I do have one minor problem, i am not sure if it has been noted already, since I didn’t read all the comments.
    When i read a book the flow of the story makes up a mental movie, and at one point in your story it broke.

    Chapter 13 – Balancing page 15 (31, e-reader)

    ” Dawn arrived more quickly than I expected. It was so peaceful here, listening to Bella’s breathing, knowing she was safe.
    Though the burn was always there in my throat, along with the hollow ache in my stomach, I had grown accustomed to it.
    It was like walking a long distance with a missing shoe heel. At first it seems intolerable, impossible to walk any distance at all.
    But by putting one foot in front of the other, your body gradually adjusts around the discomfort, easing it by bending one knees lightly or putting more weight on the toes. ”

    I feel using the line with the shoe heel breaks off the flow of the story, after all you are writing with a males P.O.V.
    When i read it, out of the blue Edward with pink stilettos appear in my mental movie.

    Apart from that I loved it, the flow didn’t break till the end, and i can’t wait till starting with your take on New Moon.

    Thank you,

    I also just thought of Midnight Sun after reading Twight again, so wanted to read the first chapters by Stephanie Meyers and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the finished chapters, at first I was a bit sceptical but thought hey why not read it and wow was I amazed, it was fantastic! all I can say is “Thank You So Much ” like many Twilight fans was very disappointed she did not finish Midnight Sun I also thought she let het fans down by not finishing it, all I have to say is you are super talented and amazing for finishing it, Thank You from the bottom of my heart it was beyond amazing.

    After years of putting it out of my head, I had the sudden urge to Google Midnight Sun. I hoped beyond hope that there was an update and sure enough…

    Personally, I find it incredibly selfish and immature to not continue because someone else gained success while riding your coattails. Anyone who is a true fan of the Twilight saga has know about the existence of Midnight Sun since 2008 (when the unfinished manuscript was leaked and subsequently posted by the author herself on her official website) and have waited so very patiently for some, ANY, sign of life. I’m deeply disappointed and will remain so until the entire novel is actually published, which I believe will happen at some point in time. Knowing that specific point WOULD be nice, but alas.

    Now, to the heart of this lengthy comment; I am only six pages deep in your interpenetration of the continuation and I’m already hopelessly hooked. You have created such a seamless flow from the original author’s “voice” that your hands might as well be clones, grown in such a controlled atmosphere as to retain muscle memory of the donor’s fingers gliding effortlessly across each letter on the keyboard. Truly wonderful. I can not wait to wrap myself in the sheets of my bed and sink into this world that never existed yet exists so forcefully.

    Thank you. Thank you. A thousand times, thank you!

      Hi Sarah,
      I’m with you–I was so disappointed that Midnight Sun was not finished that I spent a couple of years writing the end to it, then writing the rest of the saga from Edward’s point of view. πŸ™‚ As a writer myself, I know how hard it can be to come back to a project that has been put away for several years. It can be incredibly difficult, so I sympathize with Stephenie Meyer on that point. I did my best to make my version fill a void I felt and I’m gratified that it has been satisfying for others as well. I appreciate your kind words.
      All the best,
