Welcome to Tale of Years: Stars Along the Way! This began as a catch-all for outtakes to the main Tale of Years stories: existing scenes in another character's POV, scenes off-stage of Edward, etc. It's expanding now to also include any and all one-shots set before the saga begins (so anything from Amun's creation to the day Bella starts at Forks High School in 2005). So while not all the one-shots will relate directly to a particular story in the series, it's all Tale of Years (a.k.a. my prequel head-canon). It's pretty easy to tell from the years given which ones are outtake scenes to a main story and which ones are stand-alone one-shots. But most of the outtakes could probably be read alone, as well. A couple could be considered spoilers for some part of a main story, so I've put a warning note at the top of those.

I would really like to have a lot of reader input for the ideas, so please feel free to request outtakes or one-shots as you go along. I think this will be a fun way for everyone to pitch in and have a hand in the writing, and it can be my way of saying thank you to everyone who has been enjoying Tale of Years along with me. I am having a blast with this series—the writing itself has been such a growing experience for me, but also the feedback and interest of everyone is always such an inspiration and makes it really fun. THANK YOU! :) You have all given me so many great ideas, from Demetri's change to Rosalie and Emmett's first date to Peter and Charlotte meeting the Cullens... the possibilities are endless! I'm so excited! :)
