Twilight Series FanFiction


Twilight is a young adult vampire novel written by author Stephenie Meyer, originally published in hardcover in 2005. It is the genesis of the Twilight saga, and introduces seventeen-year-old Isabella “Bella” Swan who moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington and finds her life in danger when she falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen.

Twilight Summary and Storyline

Isabella Swan, more commonly known as Bella, moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to rainy Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie, so that her mother, Renée, can travel with her new husband, Phil Dwyer, a “strictly minor league” baseball player. Even though she never had many friends in Phoenix, Bella quickly discovers she is the new subject of curiosity at her new school in Forks, where she is quickly befriended by several students. Much to her dismay, several boys in the school compete for shy Bella’s attention.

While sitting next to Edward Cullen on her first day of school, he glares angrily at her and displays extreme tension. This leads Bella to believe that he dislikes her. However, his attitude towards her soon begins to change. He displays supernatural abilities while saving Bella from being hit by an out-of-control van about to crush her into another car. After seeing a dent on the side of the van in the shape of Edward’s shoulder, she realizes the van hit him and that he seemed to be holding it away from her, keeping her safe. Bella confronts him afterwards about the strangeness of the situation, but he refuses to talk to her about it. As time passes, Bella and Edward are repeatedly drawn to one another, even though Edward desperately tries to stay away in order to keep her out of the danger that he will likely put her in.

Bella eventually learns from her friend Jacob Black of the Quileute (pronounced Quil-yoot) tribe and her own observations that Edward and his family are “vegetarian” vampires who drink animal blood rather than human blood. Despite this, Edward and Bella fall deeply in love. Their foremost problem is Bella’s “alluring scent”, which makes it difficult for Edward to restrain himself from killing her. However, despite this and Bella’s strange knack for constantly landing herself in dangerous situations, they manage to stay together safely for a time.

The seemingly blissful state of affairs is thrown into chaos when another vampire coven sweeps into Forks and James, a tracker, sets his sights on Bella. Under the assumption that James has kidnapped her mother, Bella is lured to her former dance studio, where James attacks her. Edward, along with the rest of the Cullen family, rescues Bella before James can kill her.

The book ends with the two going to Bella’s prom. Beneath the surface, tension remains as Bella wishes for Edward to turn her into a vampire and Edward refuses to do so. The reason for Edward’s adamant decision not to turn Bella into a vampire is not yet revealed.

New Moon

New Moon is a young adult romance novel by author Stephenie Meyer. This book, unlike the previous book in the series, is about losing true love. It is Meyer’s second novel in the Twilight series. It was originally published in hardcover in 2006.

New Moon Plot Summary

Isabella “Bella” Marie Swan is thrown an eighteenth birthday party by Alice and Edward Cullen, the vampire whom she loves, and the rest of their vampire family. During the party Bella accidentally gets a paper cut, which leads to Jasper, the newest member of the ‘family’ to attempt a non-human diet, making a leap for Bella. Edward is forced to protect her, making him realize that keeping Bella close to his family puts her in danger. In the midst of this, Bella learns that Edward believes vampires to be soulless creatures who have no afterlife if they die. It is made clear that Edward’s relationship with her is a constant tug-of-war in his heart because he doesn’t want to risk turning Bella into a creature who he believes is damned. Edward convinces Bella that he doesn’t want her anymore, and he and his family depart from Forks in an attempt to keep her safe.

Four months pass and Bella has become a “zombie”; existing but not really living. After going to see a movie with her friend Jessica, Bella approaches a group of men in an alleyway and unexpectedly hears Edward’s voice in her head, warning her to stay away from them. She wonders if she’s on the verge of insanity, and thinks that her subconscious mind is giving her a “wish of fulfillment” by letting her believe that Edward cares whether she lives or dies. Thinking that the delusions are triggered by recklessness or being in a dangerous situation, she seeks other ways to trigger the delusions.

Jacob Black, the young Native American from Twilight, makes a reappearance in New Moon. Bella finds two motorcycles on the side of the road and decides that they are the perfect way to hear Edward’s voice. However, they need work and she remembers that Jacob is building a car in his garage. Jacob agrees to fix them and teaches Bella how to ride. As Bella begins riding hers, her goal of hearing Edward’s voice is successful; he scolds her for being “reckless and childish and idiotic”. Jacob and Bella become very close friends and Bella comes to depend on him, filling up the hole in her heart as best as she can with their friendship. Jacob is romantically interested in Bella, even though she makes it clear that she wants nothing more than friendship with him.

In the midst of their growing closeness, Jacob suddenly becomes very ill and fevered. After this episode Bella finds that it is almost impossible to get in contact with Jacob for a very long time, before learning that he has reappeared as a follower of Sam Uley. She becomes anxious without Jacob in her life, afraid of slipping back into her “zombie phase”. Desperate, she returns to Edward’s meadow in an attempt to get close to a past memory. There, she runs into the vampire Laurent, who tries to attack her. When a pack of giant wolves appear and scare off Laurent, Bella escapes.

Bella confronts Jacob and he tells her that he is forbidden to explain what is going on, but that she already knows exactly what is happening to him; she just doesn’t realize it. The only clue he gives her is a reminder of the legends that he told her when they first met. Bella eventually recalls a story about werewolves and vampires and realizes that Jacob, and the rest of Sam Uley’s gang, are werewolves.

Things are further complicated by the return of Victoria. Victoria seeks to avenge her mate, the vicious tracker vampire James, whom the Cullens destroyed after James attempted to kill Bella in Twilight. Rather than kill Edward, Victoria sees killing Edward’s “mate” as a fair trade, not realizing that Edward and his family have left Forks. It is up to Jacob and his werewolf pack to protect Bella from Victoria’s revenge. Bella spends most of her time wandering around alone since Jacob is often away with the pack searching for any sign of Victoria. She soon gets frustrated and desperate to hear the voice of Edward, and thus jumps off a cliff in an attempt at cliff diving. When she hits the water she gets caught in a rip current and nearly drowns. She hears Edward’s voice pleading with her to try to fight the water, but she ignores it, thinking that she will be dead soon. Her last thoughts before she almost dies are, “Goodbye, I love you”, before Jacob saves her life.

Afterward Bella and Jacob learn that Harry Clearwater, a friend of their fathers, has passed away. Jacob then takes Bella home, where she finds Alice waiting for her. Bella rejoices in Alice returning but soon realizes that it is only temporary. Using her gift of seeing visions of the future, Alice “saw” Bella jump off the cliff and thought that she was committing suicide. She did not see Jacob save her because, as she later finds out, she cannot see werewolves in her visions.

During Alice’s stay, Jacob is angry that Bella chose the “bloodsucker” over him. While he is visiting, Edward calls, pretending to be Carlisle, and Jacob answers the phone. Edward asks where Bella’s father Charlie is and Jacob answers “at the funeral”, referring to that of Harry Clearwater. Edward misunderstands and thinks he is referring to Bella’s funeral. Not wanting to live without her, Edward travels to Volterra, Italy to anger the Volturi, a “royal” vampire family, into killing him by exposing the existence of vampires.

Bella and Alice rush to Italy and save Edward just in time. The three of them meet with Aro, one of the Volturi leaders, who discusses Bella’s future and reveals that only two options exist: 1) Bella, as a human who knows of the existence of vampires, must die, or 2) Bella must be turned into a vampire herself. Edward agrees to neither, but Alice shows Aro that, despite Edward’s refusal, Bella will indeed become a vampire in the future, and so he agrees to let them go.

They return to Forks and Edward explains that he only left Bella in order to protect her. They meet with Edward’s family and everyone “votes” over Bella’s mortality, stating their opinion on if she should become a vampire. All of them except Rosalie and Edward agree that she should be changed. Edward gets angry, but eventually agrees that Bella should be changed after graduation, a few weeks away. He even says that he will change her himself, if she agrees to marry him first. Bella is terrified, but considers it.

In the epilogue, Bella thinks back to her “pre-zombie” state and says that “it was as if the last eight months were just a disturbing nightmare”. Charlie is furious with Bella for her unexplained three-day absence, but she knows that with Edward at her side, everything will be okay.


Eclipse is the third book in the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. It continues the story of 18-year-old Bella Swan and her vampire love, Edward Cullen. Eclipse is the sequel to New Moon.

Eclipse Plotline

The story begins with a note from Jacob to Bella. It includes many sentences that he crossed out, but ends with him saying, “Yeah, I miss you too. A lot. Doesn’t change anything. Sorry. -Jacob.” Charlie still blames Edward for the depression Bella suffered after he left, and for being responsible for her unexplained disappearance in New Moon when she raced to Volterra, Italy to save Edward’s life. Seattle is revealed to be plagued by a string of unsolved murders, which Edward suspects to be the cause of a newborn vampire that is unable to control its thirst. Charlie “un-grounds” Bella, but on the condition that she spends more time with her friends, especially Jacob, and not just Edward and Alice Cullen. Edward and Bella continue filling out college applications, while Bella explains to Edward her desire to see Jacob again. Edward refuses, explaining that young werewolves are “unstable” and that those who associate with them often get hurt, due to the werewolves’ unpredictable angry outbursts.

Meanwhile, Alice has a vision that Victoria, the vampire that is hunting Bella, is back in town. Edward, keeping this knowledge from Bella, talks Charlie into letting them take a weekend trip to Jacksonville, Florida to see Bella’s mother. When they return, Jacob confronts Edward as to why he is keeping Victoria’s return a secret from Bella. They also discuss the treaty’s boundaries, as the Cullens crossed the territorial line while chasing Victoria into werewolf territory. Edward explains to Bella that he took her away from Forks to keep her safe. Jacob and Bella reconcile, much to Edward’s disapproval.

Edward insists that the only reason he doesn’t want Bella seeing Jacob is because werewolves can be dangerous. Bella insists that Jacob and the rest of the pack would never harm her. Edward finally agrees and willingly takes her, on occasion, to the border line where Jacob picks her up. During one of these visits, Jacob reveals to Bella that he is in love with her and forcefully kisses her, much to her displeasure. She reacts by punching him as hard as she can, succeeding only in breaking her hand.

Edward angrily threatens Jacob when Bella is brought back home. He tells him if he ever brings her back injured again, he will be running on three legs, referring to his wolf form. He also says that if he ever kisses Bella again without her permission, he will break his jaw. Edward and Jacob grudgingly agree to work together and deal with Victoria. Later that night after Jacob leaves, Bella agrees to marry Edward on one condition: that they make love before he turns her into a vampire. Edward initially refuses, explaining to Bella that he could very easily kill her. Eventually, upon realizing how much it means to Bella, he says that he is willing to try in the future as long as they are married first. Bella expresses her worry of what other people will think if she gets married so young, as she remembers the problems that marrying fresh out of high school caused her mother. However, she realizes that spending the rest of eternity with Edward is more important to her than anything else, and so when Edward formally proposes to her minutes later, she accepts.

Bella discovers that a vampire has taken things from her room for the purpose of using her scent to locate her. Meanwhile, the Cullens realize that there is an “army” of newborn vampires committing the murders in Seattle. Bella soon makes the connection between both incidents, and realizes that the new vampires are being led by Victoria. Alice foresees a battle between Victoria’s coven and the joined forces of the werewolves and the Cullens.

In order to understand the newborns’ methods more clearly, Jasper describes, in detail, how he became a vampire and a part of the Cullen family. To the Cullens’ advantage, he is an expert in dealing with newborn vampires, since he was once the “General” of a large and powerful army of newborns. The Cullens and the Quileutes arrange a meeting in the woods, and Jasper demonstrates how to fight in “newborn combat”, explaining the weaknesses of newborn vampires. Bella later asks Edward to stay out of the fight because she cannot bear to lose him.

As everyone else prepares for battle, Edward and Bella camp up in the mountains, where they are later joined by Jacob and Seth Clearwater -a younger, new member of the werewolf pack- to wait out the battle. They use Bella’s scent to set a trap for the newborns to follow, which will lead them to face the Cullens and the werewolves. Bella succumbs to the numbing cold at the top of the mountain, and Jacob, with the intention of taunting Edward, slips into Bella’s sleeping bag in order to keep her warm (a werewolf’s normal core body temperature is about 109 degrees). Hovering between sleep and consciousness, she hears a conversation between Edward and Jacob, in which Jacob openly confesses his feelings for Bella. Edward admits that Jacob can give Bella some things that he, Edward, can’t. The two of them come to an uncomfortable half-truce.

In the morning, Edward and Bella begin talking about their engagement; they hear a howl of agony, and Bella realizes that it is Jacob, who had been listening in to their conversation. He runs away before Bella can reach him, and so she asks Edward to go after him. When they come back, Edward gives them some space to talk. Jacob threatens to join the fight and get himself killed because Bella doesn’t love him; when Bella begs him not to, he insists that he won’t do it if she asks him to kiss her (later on, he reveals that he had tricked her into believing he would kill himself, just so he could kiss her). Furious, she does so, and she realizes that she is in love with Jacob too, although she knows she cannot live without Edward.

When Edward returns, he admits that he overheard everything and that he’s not angry at her for loving and kissing Jacob; this makes Bella feel guilty, as she can see he’s obviously in emotional pain. As the two stay at the camp with Seth, Victoria’s newborns attack. The werewolves and Cullens make short work of her inexperienced army, but Victoria goes around the battle completely: she soon arrives to confront Bella and Edward, along with one of her newborns named Riley, who she has tricked into believing that she thinks of him as a mate. Edward tries to talk Riley out of fighting for Victoria, and tells Riley that Victoria is only using him; however, at the last second, Victoria bolsters Riley’s faith in her, and he refuses to back down. A fight breaks out, and in the end Seth (in his wolf form) kills Riley as Edward destroys Victoria.

The Cullens, as well as the pack, suffer no casualties during the fight; but Jacob was injured when Leah Clearwater (one of the werewolves) tried to take on one of the newborns alone. Jacob stopped the vampire from killing her, but the entire right side of his body was crushed in the process. Carlisle assures Bella that Jacob is healing and that no permanent damage was done. The Volturi arrive to clean up the war, but they are too late. They remind Edward of the agreement they had to change Bella into a vampire, to which Alice replies that the date has been set.

Bella goes to visit Jacob, who is on the mend, a little while later. They both admit that they love each other, but Bella explains that her love for Edward is much greater and she can’t live without him. Jacob tells her that if she ever changes her mind, he will always be there for her.

When she returns from La Push, Edward announces that he’s decided to break off the deal, after seeing that Bella is trying to make everyone happy but herself. He says they needn’t get married before trying to make love, as she wished. However, Bella states that she wants to do things the way he wanted to, and agrees to marry him first, then make love, then be turned. Edward places the ring back on her finger, and Bella grimly suggests that it is time to break the news to her father.

The epilogue is from Jacob’s perspective. He receives an invitation to Bella and Edward’s wedding, and a letter from Edward. Edward tells Jacob that he doesn’t have to come to the wedding, but if their places had been switched he would have wanted the choice. He also thanks Jacob for all he’s done for Bella. The letter only angers Jacob further, because he believes she is killing herself by choosing to become a vampire. Ignoring the questions, sympathy, and pleas from the rest of his pack, he changes into his wolf form and runs off, attempting to “leave Jacob Black behind.” He hopes that if he doesn’t phase back, he won’t ever have to feel that pain again. He decides that he is no longer hurt that Bella would choose Edward over him, but he wonders how things will be between them once Bella becomes a vampire.
