Author has written 2 stories for Twilight.
We all know that website. The one where we go to get our rocks off by laughing at somebody else's poor misfortune. For us, it all started off innocently enough. We stumbled across this gem:
Today, my girlfriend dumped me proclaiming she wanted someone more like her "Edward". I asked her who Edward was. She held up a copy of her "Twilight" book. She was talking about a fictional vampire. FML
After wiping the tears away from our eyes from laughing so hard, we clearly took a sip of the crazy juice and started wondering what would happen if someone dropped a bunch of FMLs into the Twiverse.
We decided to be that someone.
Who's we? Why we are Yogagal, Zigster, Chicklette and SorceressCirce ... respectively. Your MC's for this romp.
