Beta-reader:

I've written all types of fan fiction but Twilight honestly motivates me the most. I'm more into plot styles that are closer to Canon, although there are a few exceptions.


Unfortunately, I haven't been a Twilight fan as long as most people. I managed to stumble upon it right after the books were all published but before the first film was released. I coun't myself lucky for that. But they way it came into my life is something I feel like should be shared.


Back in 2008, I had a very bad breakup with my boyfriend, I was heartbroken, depressed, I wasn't exactly in the best mind frame. My family and friends began to worry about me, I hardly slept, I barely ate, I shrank down from 122 to almost 95 pounds in a month. I was devastated to say the least; it was quite possibly the darkest time in my life.


I'd heard about Twilight over the years, mentioned by several people but I never really paid it any mind. I'd read Good Charlotte fan fiction at gcfanfics.com, and on their boards would be a thread, dedicated exclusively to Twilight, and the moderators and admins were always saying "Read my Twilight fan fiction." Same on the JC Chasez boards. Same on every fan fiction board.


And I'm sitting there thinking, "What in the HELL are they all talking about?!"


I continued to ignore it all, but there it was, I couldn't escape it. There was mention of it everywhere, I slightly remember hearing the word 'Twilight' mentioned on the MTV VMA's but once again, I just shrugged it off. Then the chaos began, thousands of people were up in arms because Russell Brand cut off some of the cast members.


By the time August rolled around in 2008, I was inches away from just banging my head on my monitor, and pleading for God to turn this crazy world right-side-up again.


Two weeks later, I got my wish.


In one day, I happened to accidentally catch a glimpse of the trailer and I thought "Interesting...so this is what all the fuss is about." I'm a sucker for hopeless romances. That very same night, my best friend Megs and I decided to go hit the bars. I'd been reclusive for nearly 8 months, shutting myself off from everything. I was sitting on her big comfy bed, minding my own business, while she checked her e-mail, and her bookshelf caught my attention. Not just one, but all four, Twilight books were sitting there side by side. (Breaking Dawn had just been released a few days prior. I was VERY lucky.) My curiosity was piqued. I asked her about them and she suggested I begin reading the first one while she got ready to go. So I fatefully opened to the first page. An hour later, she emerges, ready to go, and I suddenly realize that I'm on page 143. (I read abnormally fast.) I couldn't put it down. I took it to the bar with us! (With her permission of course.) How pathetic is that? I stowed it away in my purse. (Keep in mind, my purse is the size of Mary Poppins's luggage.) While she spent the night, drinking and having an absolute blast I'm sure, I sat at the bar and read the damn book. I read a book, at a bar.You get the picture. She let me borrow all four books, and I read all four books in about 4 days. I even reread them all several times. Maybe it was because I read them all in consecutive order, back to back, that I enjoyed the entire series as if it were just one big book. I count myself blessed to have found the series just after Breaking Dawn was released.


I don't have the energy to rehash my heartbreak, but I can tell you that New Moon saved me. It was as if the tragedy of my breakup with my boyfriend was there on the pages, and I was Bella. I knew how she felt because I was there, in her shoes, feeling her pain. I don't know what kind of state I would be in now if I hadn't read those books when I did.


However… Breaking Dawn did leave me feeling a little…unsatisfied. There was something missing from it. Since reading it, I have discovered that Stephanie Meyer's was only contracted for four books, and pressure had been put on her by the publishing house , to find a way to finally end the series. I think this was a HUGE mistake. They could have made millions of dollars if they'd let it play out the way it was meant to, but instead they forced her to cram everything into one last book. (Plus, we could have had way more Edward/Bella time) It didn't have the same tone as Twilight, New Moon or Eclipse. (Don't get me wrong, it's possibly my second favorite book of the series behind New Moon.)


But there were serious holes to it: Alice's premonition: Like most people I was thinking "HELL YEAH!" Finally a good old fashioned throw down! But NO! Nothing. We got all worked up for nothing. We didn't even get to SEE Bella try to kick Jacob's ass, it just…skipped right over it. Then the rest of the book…200 pages of nothing. She trained herself on her ability and prepared Jacob and Renesmee to leave and then they didn't even need to do ANY of it. The powers were cool, how she protected everyone, but C'MON! Nothing?


"Hi we're the Volturi, we come to fight." "Hi we're the good guys, we come to fight too." "Hi we're the Volturi why don't we just talk a lot?" "Hi we're the good guys, wanna watch us do nothing?" WHAT! We could have just had 200 pages of Edward and Bella minus the random kid, being all sappy and stuff but no…nothing until the last two pages of the book.


I wanted someone dead. Someone important. That's why I am guilty of writing nearly 200 pages of this story in a week after reading all the Twilight books. (Ask Megs, I made her reread the whole thing every time I added a new line. She watched me succumb to OED. Obsessive Edward Disorder. She watched me do all of this in one single week.)


It was my own fatally flawed dissatisfaction with the closing fragments of their world, that spawned the words, of which I have carefully pieced together, in my own refusal to accept the fact that Edward and Bella's story was complete. I wasn't satisfied with the ending of their story because…well…after all…Bella's a vampire, and Edwards a vampire… and vampires are immortal…and immortals live forever…so if they live forever…then the story never ends right?


Twilight saved my life. Hopefully you'll understand.

Eternal Horizon by Kateration Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 181]
Summary:

It has been 17 years since Isabella Swan’s death, and young Adora has moved to Forks, igniting gossip everywhere she turns. As Adora slowly unravels the clues that lead her down a path riddled with even more questions, she begins to realize that it seems to be more than coincidence, drawing her farther away from the life she knows, and into a world, she does not understand. The closer she gets to the truth, the more her own destiny becomes irrevocably entwined with the girl that haunts the small town. She wonders why everything that’s happening revolves around the mysterious Edward Cullen, and why he seems to hold the key to the answers she’s spent a lifetime searching for.

Photobucket

This story takes place 19 years post Breaking Dawn, and although at first, to those of you who love the classic Edward and Bella love story, it may seem that the initial plot isn't heading in that direction, I promise you it is. I perfer to stick closer to the characters Stephanie originally created.

I consider this story to be pretty much the unofficial 5th installment of the Twilight Series, it takes place after Breaking Dawn, it is 100% canon, which means that it does NOT deviate from the storyline of the books, although in the first few chapters it doesn't seem like it, but trust me, it does.

Edward still loves Bella.

And so on, also for:

Alice and Jasper

Rosalie and Emmett

Carlisle and Esme

and Renesmee and Jacob.

I did not touch these pairings or alter them...trust me.

Vampires are fantastical creatures, and Bella's luck is just too bad for them to have just lived happily ever after, plus...there were a lot of things that Breaking Dawn did not answer...at all. Like what happened to poor Leah? How did Jake and Renesmee end up? What about Edward's belief in his soul, or rather lack there of, what happened to that? Is Rosalie going to be a *insert bad word that rhymes with witch* forever? Won't the Volturi come after them again? What happens to the humans decades later? How long did the Cullen's stay in Forks after Bella's change?

There were A LOT of unanswered questions, so I wrote Eternal Horizon to answer them.

It's written with 99.999999% no grammatical errors, because I'm sure some managed to somehow get past me, and in my opinion, it's written as closely to the original books as I possibly could, I studied how Stephanie wrote and tried to make the flow of Eternal Horizon similar.

The summary that I originally went with hasn't seemed to garner enough interest to do this story justice, so here's an excerpt for you:

 

 

The memory made anger flush though me. “You should have been frightened.” I spat bitterly. “But it seemed as if no matter what I said to you—no matter what I did—you were utterly incapable of fearing me.” I gritted my teeth in frustration—irritated by the fact that perhaps my hallucination may have been correct. Maybe there wasn’t anything that I could have ever done. “What a poor excuse for a vampire I was,” I groaned, “unable to frighten one tiny, fragile human girl—the laughing stock of monsters everywhere, I’m sure.” I sighed remembering Emmett’s teasing—

Maybe you’re not as scary as you think you are,” he had chuckled. “I bet I could have frightened her better than that.”

“And, maybe, I should have let him—seeing as how I had proved to be utterly incapable of doing so.” I muttered sourly. I imagined that somewhere Bella was frowning petulantly at me for saying that—it made a smile tug at the edge of my lips. She never had liked me insisting upon what I’d thought was best for her—even if I’d only been trying to protect her.

 

Please read and review, just take five seconds and tell me what you think, PLEASE?

And maybe once you read it, you can think of a better Summary that will get people's attention.

 

The main characters herein depicted, and the rules of the world that they are bound in, are not of my creation. They do not belong to me. They belong to Stephanie Meyer. She created a universe for us all, where we might lose ourselves in the untamable desires and dreams of our own hearts. I am very grateful for all she has given us, for she has breathed a new hope into lives, shrouded by the attempts our society has made, to repress our imaginations, and limit our struggle to reach far and beyond the boundaries of our own fragile existence. I will claim no credit for the inspiration of a lifetime, I will however say, that it was my own fatally flawed dissatisfaction with the closing fragments of the world she created, that spawned the words, of which I have carefully pieced together here, in my own refusal to accept the fact that Edward and Bella’s story was complete. After all, they are vampires, and vampires are immortal. Moreover, as long as they exist, so does their love. And if they cease to exist; does their love cease to exist too? Or is love eternal, undying…forever?

I present to you, my own vision of Stephanie Meyer’s world, where faith knows no bounds and love never dies.
