Twenty Years On

Twenty years have passed since Edward kept a diary documenting secrets and stories from his long life. The year is now 2032 and he’s at it again, reminiscing about the turns his life has taken since 2012.

      Yes, she survived! πŸ™‚ What we’ve discovered about Renesmee is that she suffers like a human and takes longer to heal than a pure-blood vampire, but that she is immortal and does survive. -PAL

    Hi,

    Thank you so much for writing these first of all. I was wondering, besides the 4 books, I’m confused what order to read the rest of your work. Should I read the Private diary then together away and then twenty years later? I’m confused because in your intro in together away, it refers to a car crash in twenty years later (which is supposed to be later so I’m confused how it would refer to 2032 when it’s 2015). I would hate to read things out of order so I was hoping you could clarify!

    • PA Lassiter says:

      Hi Jay,
      Hmm…that does sound confusing. Without going back to check on this seeming glitch, I’ll say that Together Away takes place before Twenty Years On, but is written as a memory from the Twenty Years On time frame. The extra books were actually written: 1.Diary, 2.Twenty Years On, 3.Together Away, so if you want to read them in that order, you can’t go wrong. I think of them in date order (1, 3, 2), but we did finish #2 last. It shouldn’t really matter what order you read them in, though, except you’ll probably want to read the Edward’s diary first. It was written over a long stretch of time, coinciding with the original four books, and provides a lot of the basis for the other material. This confusion is indicative of how hard it is to write the Cullens’ future without making mistakes as the world gets bigger and more complex. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy all the work. (p.s. Together Away was imagined and written by Julie Vans and edited by me.)
      Thanks for your comment!

    Hi Dear Lassiter,

    Is their any chance you would write a book from Jacob point of view from the day he imprinted on Renasme?…. though we have got stories hear and their from edward point of view and from your Blogs, It would be wonderful if you can actually write a story of them including Breaking dawn fight and their love life and Sarabel’s story :-)…
    I know I am asking too much but i can’t stop reading Twlite πŸ˜€

    Love you sooooo much for your work on Twlite. πŸ™‚
    I have never read a Novel in my life myself except Twlite, now i have read each and every part of the book 2 time πŸ™‚ both Edward and Bella point of view πŸ˜› and other books too(Twenty years on, Private dairy…)

      Hi Manasa, I remember that question being asked somewhere here on this site already and I think the answer was no because PAL isn’t that much interested in Jacob’s story and she has other projects to work on to make a living since she cannot make any money from the Twilight series. I’m sure she’ll reply to you herself about this though and correct me πŸ™‚

    I LOVE the twilight series!!! I am obsessed, and I was searching everywhere for another book(s)!! I am so grateful that you wrote more, but Renesmee’s sory is so sad. But Sarabel is lovely, so I guess it sort of evens it out. Will you write more in the future? And I am interested in the snake handlers daughter, but i would like to know the general plot first.

      Hi Melody,
      Sorry for the delay. Your message got a little lost. You’re right that Renesmee’s story is sad. I never intended it to be that way, but as you write stories, they often take their own turn. Some of the stories on this page are written by author Julie Vans also, so she had her own take on things. I think they hold together, even if some of them make me sad. I kind of ran out of time to spend on developing Sarabel’s story more, but I see it as a very positive and uplifting one in the future. Perhaps one day I will expand on it.
      Yes, I am writing some original novels now. The Snake Handler’s Daughter is a β€œPeyton Place” type of novel for adults about a community of people trying to find love, often in a misplaced way. It is humorous and possesses a lot of characters and a little bit of magic. There’s more information here on this website and here on my author’s website. Just as on this website, some of the content is not suitable for readers under 17 years old.
      All the best, PAL

    I was wondering if you’d considered publishing a timeline to help straighten out certain events like the date of the car accident, the Jacob and Nessie wedding, the birth of Sarabel, etc. I have immensely enjoyed reading the stories. As is typical, I find myself wanting more… Who will Sarabel imprint with? Seth? Will Leah and Fenix produce a girl that Embry might imprint on, strengthening the Quileute bonds even further? I was saddened by Rosalie’s desperation and some of her actions with the boy… It was also hard to see the Cullens all split up…. Or rather, spread out. I also found myself wishing that Bella could have somehow let her mother know… Maybe in another 20 years when Renee is on her deathbed, just so she could see how happy Bella is… I guess I’m just obsessed with the Cullens… Well, all of them really, being one big happy family. And if I let my mind run away with me, I could think of them all coming together and overthrowing the Volturi and extinguishing its evil, power-hungry rule once and for all… fight scenes reminiscent of those that never took place in Breaking Dawn, and with the only loss of life being the bad guys πŸ˜‰ and then they really could have their happily ever after without all the vampire PTSD
    THANKS for taking the time to expand on the twilight legacy.

      Hi Sarah,
      The chapters posted here never change and so when someone has trouble downloading one of them, it’s always a problem on their end. Unfortunately, I can’t tell what the problem is because I never know how they’ve tried to download the files. These days, the problem is often that a download to a smartphone breaks up mid-stream and corrupts the file. The solution is to delete the downloaded file and try again until the file transfer completes without errors.

      Regarding a son for Jake and Nessis…I gave them a daughter because I felt that Bella’s line should be a matriarchy. I liked the idea of the power in the wolf pack transferring to a female leader eventually. So we have Bella, who is now a supernatural creature, a vampire, her daughter Renesmee who is a unique hybrid creature, and Renesmee’s daughter who is half wolf, one quarter human, and one quarter vampire. I liked the symmetry of all that. And now that we know what Nessie had to go through to have a baby, nobody (including me) wants to put her through that again. So, I guess giving Jake and Nessie a son is out of the question in this version of the Twilight world. πŸ™‚ -PAL

  7. My hands are shaking so much that it seems impossible for me to type in English correctly but anyway… thank you so much for writing about Jacob and Nessie!! ^^ I’ve been wondering about their afterwards for years and hoped for an another sequel or film… My desperation has led me to your website and I am proud of my fingers and intuition to click the hyperlink to this place:) Just wished there had been more of their story, just little more specifically, about Nessie falling in love with Jacob.(since I am a huge fan of Jacob^^) Still, I’m satisfied enough.
    It’s already 5 a.m. here in Korea but I am too excited to sleep, oh my…!! I’ve only got 4 hours to sleep and right now having trouble with deciding whether I should read your other pieces instead of sleeping:) Hard to choose. Will be waiting for your reply, thank you^^

    • PA Lassiter says:

      Hello my dear. What a pleasure to hear from you all the way from Korea! Welcome to the website. I don’t know which books here you’ve read so far, but Edward’s version of Breaking Dawn contains a lot more material than the original book during the time after Renesmee is born, including the development of her younger relationship with Jacob. Also, the Private Diary of EAC contains more tales about both Jacob and Renesmee. I believe one of the final ones in the diary covers their wedding. Of course, anything I’ve written about them is either from Edward’s point-of-view, or is something he presumably read directly from Jacob’s mind. There’s not a lot of material directly about Jacob and Renesmee’s love affair, primarily because that is the kind of information Edward, as Nessie’s father, would try his hardest to avoid knowing. I’m pleased you’ve enjoyed Twenty Years On. All the best, -PAL

    Hey PAL does Charlie knows about the vampire side of Edward?

    Like

    • PA Lassiter says:

      Hi Alliya,
      In my view of the world, Charlie knows Edward and the rest of the Cullens are not human, but the only mental constructs he has to process their “otherness” is the idea of an Angel, which is somewhat how he sees Bella in her new state. He’s never viewed Edward as particularly “good,” however, so that construct doesn’t really fit. The only other reference point he has for other-worldliness is what Jacob showed him–the ability of a human to turn into an animal. Though Charlie may have seen vampires in movies and know about them in general, the Cullens don’t particularly fit that mold. Bella has told him outright that if he questions what she is, then all of them will leave, and Charlie will do anything to prevent that. So he does not question, and truly, does not even think about it as far as he can avoid it. So, I’d say that no, Charlie does not know that Edward is a vampire. Thanks for asking! -PAL

      • Julie Vans says:

        Hmm – interesting. Because the overall reason for keeping Charlie in the dark RE the ‘threat of knowing’ wasn’t just potential exposure, but the wrath of the Volturi. With the Volturi reduced in influence and power – though not disbanded – how real is this threat? I’ve wondered quite a bit about this. Just what is the state of the Volturi and is it only in regard to Renesmee that they’ve backed down. If so, how does that influence anything the Cullens do in the future.

      Hi Geralisha,
      Thanks for reading! Julie Vans and I still talk about coming back to finish off Twenty Years On. We might have to take a retreat from our regular lives to do it, since we’ve found it hard to go back to this rich world of Twilight and add to it without restudying all the books and all the built-in history that comprises it. The last couple of times I wrote a story about the Cullens in the future, I made all kinds of errors relating to their world, their abilities, and their history. There’s just so much information you have to learn and keep in your head as you go along, and since I haven’t “lived there” for a while, I’d have to start over from scratch. Other authors have written of having this problem with sequels and I completely understand it now. That doesn’t mean that I might not find time to retreat from the world and reenter the Twilight world at some point. All the best, -PAL

      Hi Christy,
      Thanks for checking out The Snake Handler’s Daughter. I’m absolutely thrilled that you loved it! Would you consider writing a customer review here on Amazon.com? The more reviews a book gets, the more likely Amazon is to recommend it to other readers, and we’re still trying to spread the word. I’d be most grateful.

      As for other aliases, my prior career was writing technical computer books, which is why I use the pen name P.A. Lassiter, to separate my fiction from my nonfiction work. I don’t write under any other pen names, but am currently working on the second book in the Amity, Kentucky, series. (You can read a preview on the MY BOOKS page here.) Also, on that page, you’ll find a free short story titled “Larry’s Girl,” about Sylvia and Larry Pugh when they dated in high school. For adults only. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for commenting.

      Hi Meredith,
      I’m so sorry that your reading material has come to an end on my website. I completely understand the need for more, more, more. Alas, I cannot make a living writing Twilight fan fiction, and writing new novels is so time-consuming that I have little left for creating more material here. One always hopes that that might change in the future. I, too, want Rosalie and Renesmee to make up. (They will if I get back here to write it down…)

      I might make one suggestion for you: Have you checked out the audiobooks at your local library? If not, I highly encourage you to do that. The Twilight Saga is read in its entirety by the wonderful Ilyana Kadushin, and I lost myself in the world all over again listening to them. They are wonderful in every respect. She gets all the voices right, even Emmett. πŸ™‚ Let me know what you think! xx, -PAL

    I’ve read almost everything on this site and I am highly impressed. I feel privileged to read your work. You have done an excellent job at capturing the characters and thus far are the only author I’ve found to rewrite the entire saga in epov. I love how you expanded it as well with his journals. I must say normally I’m not one to read explicit material but I thouroughly enjoyed the ones you incorporated and found myself wishing for more. (I think my hubby enjoyed my new reading material vicariously too) im picky about what I read and had never ventured into fan fiction until I read Myers first half of midnight sun. I simply had to know the end. After reading several other versions of it and the other books I stumbled across your site looking for the entire breaking dawn story. I enjoyed it so much I went back to the beginning and have now read through all of yours several times catching more details and better understanding of the stories with each read. Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this!!!!!

      What a lovely message, Melissa, and you are most welcome. I felt just as you did after reading the first half of Midnight Sun, and I had a feeling lots of other people would too. Since I didn’t know anything about fan fiction, I didn’t know where to look for other versions until after I’d already written one to fill what I thought was an empty gap! I laugh at my naivete now, but this is the “adult-written, for adults” version of Edward’s story that follows Meyer’s canon. I wanted to “fill out” the saga rather than rewrite it in an alternate universe. It let me live in the story world for a good many more months. I’d never written erotic material before, but when Fifty Shades of Grey was released, I perused it and was at first astonished, then inspired, to try my hand at explicit material. It was enjoyable to write, and challenging to try to find the right balance. I’m enormously pleased that you found the work inspiring. πŸ˜‰ What I’ve searched for since then are works of fiction with a lively, thought-provoking story, but which also include the sex scenes, since sex is such a vital part of our lives. I found it difficult to come up with many titles outside of the romance genre. My first book, The Snake Handler’s Daughter, is an attempt to write a fun, engaging piece of literature that doesn’t fade to black during intimate moments. Perhaps you would enjoy it.

      Nessie survives. As the Cullens discovered after the car crash, she is immortal, though she suffers like a human when severely injured and takes much longer than a full-blood vampire does to recover. Edward has witnessed Nessie’s recovery from seemingly catastrophic injuries before, but I doubt if he’ll ever fully believe in her immortality. In a way, she’s tragic figure, because when hurt, she suffers far more than a human in her inability to die.

      Sorry about the font. I probably wouldn’t try to use such a font again, but I liked how it resembled Edward’s handwriting when I originally wrote the diaries. (BTW, you can save the files as TXT, then change the font if you need to.) As for “William,” in the United States, the names Will, Bill, and especially Billy are most often nicknames for the more formal William. I couldn’t come up with a good girl’s name derived from Billy so I used William instead. I just checked Meyer’s Illustrated Guide and it doesn’t say that Billy Black’s official name is William, so perhaps it isn’t. I took liberties. πŸ˜‰ -PAL
