Fanfic Writer Leaks Twilight: Eclipse Story

While half the Twilight fandom is abuzz over the leaked early draft of the screenplay to the third installment of the mega-popular Twilight series of movies, the producers of the series face a far more serious problem.

This problem is in the shape of fanfic writer Stephenie Meyer, who is arguably the biggest Twilight fan ever.

“We don’t know how she does it,” a producer who requested anonymity told us. “But somehow, she manages to get early drafts of the screenplays long before we even distribute them to the cast.”

Meyer then takes the screenplays and writes a novelization.

“That’s the one good thing about this,” the producer admitted. “She adds so much of her own stuff to our story that the fans have no idea which parts are actually in the movie, and which parts she filled in.”

The success of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight fan-fiction indicates, however, that the fans want to have spoilers.

“That’s the one thing about fans,” a source close to Meyer said. “They are all indignant about having something spoiled, and yet they hunger for these spoilers. That’s why they jump on Stephenie’s Twilight fanfic. There are thousands, perhaps millions of readers who don’t want to wait for the next movie. They want to know right now what happens next.”

“The people from Summit Entertainment have been after me to tell them where I get the scripts,” Meyer admits. “But I’m not telling them. I’m protecting my sources, just like a reporter would.” Then she proudly shows us her recently finished project, a 600 page novel that she based on the screenplay for the fourth installment of the blockbuster series. “I believe even the producers haven’t seen this one yet,” she declares.

And what is next on the plate for this prolific Twilight fan-ficcer? “I’m revisiting the original movie. There are so many wonderful characters, so I’m going to do what the movies can’t and will revisit all of them and tell their stories. I just love this series and the characters, and I want to share how I see them with all the other fans.”
