The Breaking Dawn Screenplay Challenge Moderators would like to extend our congratulations to:

Voter's Choice Winner: Big Day by MrsKatyCullen
Judges' Choice Winner: Opening Scene by AngelGoddess1981
Congratulations to the Winners and we will be emailing your banners to you very soon!
Many thanks to all of those who participated!
Please find the link toward the bottom to fill out the FORM. This is the only way we can assign you a Chapter/Scene.
Where there any parts of the Twilight Saga movies that you would have changed?
Some aspect you would have altered or put your own spin on it?
Did Edward not have enough lines? Alice not giddy enough?
Was Rosalie too quiet and you wanted to see more sass? Emmett not silly enough? Or was Aro not creepy enough for you?
Did you feel that certain parts - that should have been in the movies - were cut out?
Well, this is your chance to make Breaking Dawn in your image. You can take the lines (and emotions) from the book (or not) that you believe should be in the movie and write it into a script!!
Or if you just want to take a stab at screenwriting... test your skills out on us!

INT. THE SWAN’S LIVING ROOM : DAY
EDWARD and BELLA are sitting hand in hand on the couch, waiting. Bella is fidgeting anxiously. She moves to pull her hand away, but Edward keeps it firmly in place, front and center.
SOUND OF CRUISER pulling in gravel driveway.
Stop fidgeting, Bella. You’re not
confessing murder, here.
Easy for you to say.
Bella silently listens for the sound of Charlie’s boots as he approaches the house. Edward whispers to Bella.
Calm down, Bella.
The front door slams unnecessarily hard against the wall and Charlie, dressed in full uniform, enters.
Bella nervously protests.
No! Wait until he hangs up his gun.
Edward gives Bella a crooked smile and chuckles at her unease. Charlie rounds the corner into the living room, eyes falling on Bella and Edward.
Bella. Edward. What’s going on?
We’d like to talk to you. Bella and I have some good news.
Charlie looked at Edward suspiciously.
Bella motions to Charlie’s recliner.
Have a seat, Dad.
Charlie stiffly walks to the recliner and sits on edge.
Don’t get worked up, Dad. Everything’s fine.
Sure, Bells. That’s why you look like you’re about to pass out.
Bella makes a face and glances at Edward.
You’re pregnant, aren’t you!
What? No! Dad, no, I’m not pregnant!
Oh. (pauses) Well, then, what is it you needed to tell me?
Charlie, I realize I’m a bit out of order in doing this. Traditionally, I would have asked you first, and I mean no disrespect. So, I’m asking your blessing. Bella and I would like to get married.
Charlie’s gaze is set on Bella’s ring. She and Edward sit tensely on the couch as Charlie processes the announcement.
Well, guess I’m not all that surprised. Least you’re not pregnant. You’re sure you’re not, right?
Bella hides her face in embarrassment
And you’re sure about this? I mean, he’s not pressuring you or anything, is he?
He’s not pressuring me to do anything. I’m completely sure about Edward.
Why are you kids in such a rush? Marriage already?
Bella and I will be attending Dartmouth together this Fall, Charlie. I’d like to do this right.
Charlie rises from his recliner and stands in front of Edward and Bella, arms crossed.
Alright, Bells. I’m not ecstatic about this, but you have my blessing. But, you have to tell your mother.
