First of all I want to stay true to the characters Stephanie Meijer has created, they are hers. Only the new ones are mine.
I used the Twilight series and the Official Illustrated Guide for reference. And also Stephanie’s own website.
Also I have my own standards.
For one: werewolves don’t imprint on full vampires. Imprinting is meant for passing on the gene. (and finding their soulmate) They can however fall in love.
Second: imprinting is a final thing, it can’t weaken and the wolf in question won’t think of being intimate with anybody else. If the imprint is a child, sexual desires will be suppressed until she is ready (full grown).
Third: A werewolf/ shape-shifter is not half animal. In my story there will be no lines like “his wolf wanted to claim her”. In their human form they act human. In their wolf form they can give in to the animal, because they are one, but they usually don’t.
Fourth: Vampires that are gifted have one gift, maybe two (rarely). They aren’t actually superheroes.
Also I am a wolf-girl first, but I like a lot about vampires too. With my story I want to bring both sides closer together.
Some characters aren’t well defined, like werewolves Collin and Brady. Some characters we don’t really know anything about, like the seven new werewolves. That leaves room for me to play with. (these 7 all phase in December 2006)
Another thing I’m going to try, is giving every major character his or her moment. So it’s not just going to be Edward’s, Bella’s or Jake’s point of view.
With each chapter I’ll first state the name of the person who’s point of view it is, before anything else.
There is something else: if you haven’t read the Official Illustrated Guide, you probably won’t realize this, but most werewolves are younger than you think. For example, at the end of Breaking Dawn (12-31-2006) Jared, Paul, Jacob, Embry and Quil are only 16 years old (born in 1990). Seth is 14. A lot happened in 2006. Exact dates of birth are not clear for most characters, only the four main ones. So I’m making up complete dates for the ones that aren’t clear.
O, I might suggest some songs to play while reading a chapter. Just for fun and to set the mood. Some of the artists can be Dutch, as I am, I’ll reference to that if so. You want to know them? Check youtube.
I hope you’ll like my story. And if you want more background information or a chapter from another point of view, please let me know.
My story starts on Monday 01-01-2007.
