Twilight... Remixed By The 20th Century's Greatest Writers

How 'Twilight' had been different with talent involved

Here's a fun little thing by Lizzie Stark, author of the upcoming Leaving Mundania, over at my most favorite nerd-site, io9:

How would Twilight have been different if written by some of the greatest authors of the 20th century, instead of the single worst, Stephenie Meyer? (Kidding, by the way. There are at least three or four authors worse than Meyer). 

Click over to see how scribes like Ayn Rand, James Joyce and Raymond Carver would have handled the epic Mormon fantasy where things sometimes happen but usually don't for hundreds of pages. 

My favorite is this: 

Lewis Carroll

Bella takes acid and charts syllogisms.

After you're done reading, why not add your own? I'm sure we can come up with some good ones...

This was also a thread on the discussion forums. That's funny.  I love io9.

My contribution was that Anne Rice would have written it as an erotic thriller and Bella would have had a threeway with Jacob and Edward then they would have explored their sexuality with each other ala Interview with the Vampire. In the end, Bella would have become a vampire too but probably stayed in a threeway relationship minus baby.
