These are all the changes I made to Sweet Dreams before publishing it and a few fun facts. I know many of these will shock you, and if you wish to use any ideas that I was going to use in the past, please message me before you use them so I know. And of course, change the names and stuff. You can use the ideas, not my characters. Just know that at the end, I will tell you some I sort of plan to keep, so you can still use, but just be aware please.


-Sophie and Ethan were originally named Peppermint (I know, I know, stupid) and Austin

-Sweet Dreams was originally called New Star

-Sophie was going to be an only child who was eight (but she grew up) and was used in a lab, turned into a half-cat girl but then escaped and came to Forks

-Ethan wasn't created until a year and a half after I came up with Sweet Dreams

-Ethan was originally going to be Sophie's older brother of two years

-Sophie and Ethan were originally going to be Edward's long lost niece and nephew (Edward had a sister he didn't know about who married a royal vampire so Ethan and Sophie were going to be half vampire)

-Sophie was originally going to end up with Seth until I created Stefan

-Stefan's name was actually spelled Stephan but it was too close to Stephen, so I changed the spelling

-Sophie and Stefan were originally going to have twin girls (Luna and Estrella) with blonde hair and blue eyes, but then I changed it to one girl named Lacie (Black hair, silver eyes) until I finally settled on a boy named Matthew

-Stefan originally had grayish-purple eyes until I changed them to milk-chocolate brown

-Sophie and Ethan were suppose to be triplets (another sister named Sapphire with sapphire eyes and purple hair that faded to red at the bottom) but I decided against it

-Sophie and Ethan were suppose to have an older brother (ten years older) named Drew who looked just like them, but I decided against it

-Stefan was originally going to be ten years older than Sophie until I changed my mind

-Sophie and Ethan originally had green eyes (because of the idea of them being related to Edward)

-Mayumi was a last minute character that I was going to have Ethan kill until I thought she could be useful

-Sweet Dreams was suppose to be more focused on Ethan, Sophie, and Renesmee, but I never got the chance to bring in Renesmee once

-Sophie and Ethan's last name was originally Cross, then I decided to name them Dagger and have them change their name to Cross

-Stefan's original name was going to be Damon Roze but I didn't like it

-Stefan's last name was a last minute thing I got from a book I read

-Another idea involved Sophie having a completely different human form called Emma (short black hair and blue eyes) and her bronze hair (and at the time green eyes) was suppose to be her other form

-I did another version of Sweet Dreams with Ethan waking up in the forest and being adopted by Bella (since she wanted a boy) and him having strange dreams about Sophie dying (which resulted in him finding Emma) and then Emma would let Sophie out

-Sophie was originally going to be a biotch but inside a nice girl before I changed her personality

-If I kept Sophie's twin sister Sapphire, she would have been trying to kill Sophie

- I wanted to make Sophie (this is before Ethan was created) a witch, then an angel, then a vampire, then a succubus, until I finally settled on Half demon/ Half angel at the last minute

-Alexander and Luna were suppose to be evil until I decided to make Alexander good

-Sophie's name actually was random, it just popped into mind

-Ethan was named after a cute character I saw in a show (Not the appearance, only the name)

-Stefan's house and his job I got from Usagi-san from Junjou Romantica (GO USAGI! X3)

-Sophie was supposed to have a motorcycle (XD)

-Sophie and Ethan originally were going to be half vampire like Renesmee (as I'm sure you guess in the earlier bullet) and Ethan would grow rapidly while Sophie grew at normal pace

-I tried to make Sweet Dreams not a fan fiction, so I tried to change Sophie's look, resulting in purple eyes and black hair that faded to red at the bottom

-Sophie's true form is based a little off Alyss (Will Of Abyss) from Pandora Hearts

-This was originally going to be a Tokyo Mew Mew fan fiction, then a Pandora Hearts fan fiction, then Kuroshitsuji fan fiction, but all were going to be crossovers with Twilight still. I'm not sure why I decided to keep the Twilight part

-Matthew is based of Ciel from Kuroshitsuji (the manga) when he was a little boy (around eight even though Matthew is three) and they even have the same eye color and sort of the same hair (coincidence I swear! I totally didn't realize until it was too late)

-Sweet Dreams' original plot was for Sophie and Ethan to find their memories (yes, both of them lost it, not just one) and then find their older brother (Drew who I mentioned earlier) and try to kill Sapphire (Triplet sister also mentioned earlier) because Sapphire was trying to kill Sophie and take over her body

-Stefan originally had blonde hair and green eyes

-I just recently got into demons and angels, so all of that was recent, before that was vampires, fairies, and weird monsters

-Jacob was originally more in Sweet Dreams because Sophie looked up at Seth and him as older brothers (before Ethan was created)

-I didn't want to make twins until I started getting into Vocaloid and more specifically, the Kagamine twins

-I love twincest, but I thought my fans wouldn't like it so that's why I put Sophie with Stefan, but she was actually going to be with Ethan

-No one besides Luna was suppose to die in my story, but most of you seemed to want someone to die, so . . . Yeah . . .

-There was a point in my life where I thought Sophie and Ethan should be human, then I decided to change them into robots (that were pretty much human except for being made of metal of course) but went against the idea

-Another sibling idea was not having Stefan, but only a twin sister (Sapphire) who would actually be inside of Sophie until she was unleashed, resulting in Sophie going with Stefan and Sapphire being Seth's imprint and going with him

-Another idea about Sophie I had was her being a doll made by an alchemist (Alexander) using some of Ethan's DNA

-Sophie and Ethan's birthday being Halloween was a last minute thing and I mostly did it to remember the date so I don't end up putting two different dates (I don't want to confuse people)

-I've been editing Sweet Dreams for years

-Sweet Dreams started off as a simple daydream (as all my books do) but then I became obsessed, unable to daydream about anything else but Sweet Dreams

-I've had dreams about Sophie and Ethan, resulting in some of my ideas

-Stefan was originally going to be an immortal (read Evermore and you'll know what I'm talking about) who is human except for a few powers and he drinks this immortal liquid

-Sophie's favorite food is Sushi and tea, but she prefers sweets (all her sweets must be made with strawberries or she won't eat it)

-Ethan messes around a lot, but always uses protection (LOOKS AT AUDIENCE! BE SMART!)

-Mayumi can't stand octopus and squid, but she loves all other fish

-Sophie once drank tomato juice thinking it was strawberry juice because Ethan tricked her, resulting inn her spitting it on him

-Ethan fantasizes about Sophie on a regular basis (but I'm pretty sure you all knew that XD)

-Mayumi tries to look like Sophie sometimes (XD) she even wore a wig once before Sophie caught her

-Mayumi will only eat a soul if the person ate fish before their soul is taken (Don't ask me why, I don't know. The taste changes or something, I don't know)

-Stefan knows how to play violin, cello, piano, and guitar

-Matthew hides a king size Hershey bar under his pillow for when he has a sweet tooth (which is all the time, he gets it from his mother XD)

-Sophie sleeps with strawberries under her bed for whenever she wants something sweet (See? I told you!)

-Ethan's first time was with a maid, and it was actually by accident (she fell on top of him and things . . . Yeah . . .) but it ended a little awkward since she wasn't a virgin yet he was

-Ethan couldn't get a girlfriend because every time he (cough, cough) he would say Sophie instead of the girl's name (sad, but a little funny too)

-Sophie has fantasized about Ethan while (cough, cough) with Stefan only once, and almost got caught


I may use the fairy and witch idea for other OCs I will make, and I may use the one about Sophie and Ethan being related to Edward. I'm not one-hundred percent sure yet. That's all I can think of at the moment XD the fun facts part was fun to make, and the beginning is all true. Just remember, you can use the ideas, not the characters, and please give me a heads up before you use the idea please. Thank you
