That was my thought process, until I finished the series for the second time and was dying for more. If you keep it up until she publishes it, I will have to bow down to you for your amazing restraint.

I can try, right? lol I'm just going to try to ignore it, and maybe stay away from the section on Stephenie's website lol.

Of course it IS a tragedy that someone betrayed her in that manner.
And I COMPLETELY understand not being inspired to continue with it, but honestly she has such passion for the series I would be extremely surprised if she DIDN'T finish it. Sure, it probably won't be right away but I bet it WILL happen eventually. It's just a matter of when she gets bit by the Twilight inspiration bug.

As for what she has been so gracious to allow us to read...it's amazing, fabulous and utterly gorgeous! I loved every minute of it and I truly hope and pray that she does in fact finish it! It REALLY helps you understand Edward along with all the other books. To reiterate...it IS without a doubt a tragedy, but I think the real tragedy would be for her to NOT finish that awaiting masterpiece.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post this, but I noticed something weird on Stephenie's site.

The link on her site for the pdf of Midnight Sun used to be "midnightsunpartialdraft3.pdf" or something to that effect. I know this because I had it bookmarked as of mid December.

Yesterday I went to go look at it again for something and I noted that the bookmark didn't work anymore. I then went on and found that the name of the link had changed to "midnightsunpartialdraft4.pdf".

Do you think maybe she did an update to it? (Maybe to fix misspellings?)

Or could it just be Seth re-linking to the same one?

It has the same page count... I didn't notice any immediate differences...

Found this in the Personal Correspondence...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Is Midnight Sun still dead to you, or can you see finishing and publishing it in the future?
STEPHENIE MEYER: It's really complicated, because everyone now is in the driver's seat, where they can make judgment calls. ''Well, I think this should happen, I think she should do this.'' I do not feel alone with the manuscript. And I cannot write when I don't feel alone. So my goal is to go for, like, I don't know, two years without ever hearing the words Midnight Sun. And once I'm pretty sure that everyone's forgotten about it, I think I'll be able to get to the place where I'm alone with it again. Then I'll be able to sneak in and work on it again.

Sounds like all the fans need to leave her alone! She is more likely to start writing it again if we act like we forgot all about it. haha. Good luck with that... :roll:

It... feels different.
I'm pretty sure there are some spelling changes.
There might be some other changes, too, though.

It's killing YOU?
It's torturing ME!
I can NOT believe it cuts off before the meadow scene, the scene I want to know what Edward's thinking the ABSOLUTE most!

I just wish she would give MS to the fans like "okay I`ll finish it for the fans" I know she is hurt it leaked and I understand, but how can she do this to us. She is taking away our brand of heroin :roll: I need more of the Twilight saga.

I must admit then when I went to read Midnight Sun on SM's website, I was afraid it's be boring since it was the same story as Twilight...although why I thought it would be I have no idea!! I was really WRONG! I enjoyed it soooo much and felt like I got to know so much more about Edward and the other Cullens.

I too was VERY sad it left off right before the meadow scene!!

I admire those who want to wait to read it, but I definitely have an addiction and need to read as much as I can about Edward and Bella's world. I think I've now read everything, all 4 books, MS, the outtakes and extras like 15 times each! (Without exaggerating!! lol)

I heard some rumors that in Twilight Saga or Midnight Sun , Edward almost fall in love with Tanya but Jane likes him too so two of the girls fighting and Edward realizes ... so when he came to Italy for death , it's Jane begging Aro to forgive Edward .... Is something wrong ?

O.o Whaaaa....?

Stephenie Meyer had been planning to write a Twilight crack-fic, maybe that's what you heard about, Kirume.
