Twilight Outtakes & Extras wish list!

A few days ago we were talking in another post about the "disappointment" that the Illustrated Guide did not contain any new outtakes from the Twilight books.

So, let's imagine that we could ask Stephenie Meyer to write just one outtake or extra from the books.

1. What scene from Twilight / New Moon / Eclipse / Breaking Dawn you would ask her to write in EPOV? (or any other character POV, if you will)

2. What scene that doesn't appear in the books but really takes places in the Twilight Universe would you wish would have been included in the books? (eg. the trip to Jacksonville in Eclipse or when Edward gives Bella her "after" car in Breaking Dawn).

3. Have you read any good fics that fill these gaps (either a EPOV or a missing scene) in a way that fits perfectly the canon characters & story?

OOH! I love this post!

Um, okay, here goes...

1. What scene from Twilight / New Moon / Eclipse / Breaking Dawn you would ask her to write in EPOV? (or any other character POV, if you will)

Twilight: I've always wanted to know what Edward was thinking when Bella was in the hospital after James' attack. It ate at me SO MUCH after I read the book that it was the first scene I explored as a fic writer.

New Moon: I'd love to know what Edward really thought/felt when he saw Bella in Volterra and the immediate scenes that follow. What did he think of her rescuing him, of Alice bringing her, of Bella being amidst the Volturi, wondering if she still loved him. *swoon* So many wonderful moments for vampire self-depreciation there.

Eclipse: Yeah... chapter 20- Compromise.

Breaking Dawn: Definitely the first time they have sex, hearing Renesmee for the first time, reading her mind at the end.

I'd really like to see Alice's point of view on anything. I'd like to know what her mind sounds like. I don't imagine it's as... straightforward or flowing? as Edward's or Bella's? I don't want to read a whole book from her point of view, but maybe what she perceives of Bella, E/B's relationship, or some bonding sibling moments with Edward.

I would sell a kidney to have anything from Carlisle's point of view. Anything. I'd especially like his take on Bella in the first place or Chapter 4 (Visions) of MS.



2. What scene that doesn't appear in the books but really takes places in the Twilight Universe would you wish would have been included in the books? (eg. the trip to Jacksonville in Eclipse or when Edward gives Bella her "after" car in Breaking Dawn).

Any and every missing moment! I'd like to see the happiest summer moments, Edward and Bella's return to school after New Moon, Jacksonville, everything!


3. Have you read any good fics that fill these gaps

Best for me, hands down is Ithaca is Gorges by Giselle-lx, which is Carlisle and Edward's version of New Moon. Just stunning.

hahahah, this made me laugh. So true!


some bonding sibling moments with Edward.
This so much!! I loved the little bit we saw in Midnight Sun when Alice joins Edward while composing Bella's lullaby. And in my head i also have an scene with Edward & Alice talking by the river outside of the house, but right now I can't remember if it's from Midnight Sun or from a fic (!!!) I'll look for it

Any and every missing moment!
Yeah, me too... I remember finishing "Twilight", and when I began "New Moon and read the first chapter thinking "What???? how can you tell us about the happiest summer and not showing us???? I don't want this lapse of time missing!!!! And then, Eclipse was the other book when I got "angry" (not really) because there were a lot of scenes that I wanted to read only to find the next chapter beginning.

I loved that. I liked seeing them without drama or pressure and really being 'siblings.'

And in my head i also have an scene with Edward & Alice talking by the river outside of the house, but right now I can't remember if it's from Midnight Sun or from a fic (!!!) I'll look for it

I seem to remember one scene from MS where Alice is lightly teasing Edward about staying out all night at Bella's(?) before getting ready for school. I don't know if it was at the river or not, lol.
