Okay people, after ten years I feel I need to set a few things straight. I love to write but I’m not a professional writer (I’m not even close). I do have some imagination and that’s why I decided to post my own stories. I write mostly in Portuguese and English. I’m from Portugal therefore I feel more comfortable writing in my native language other than writing in English but when I translate my stories I work really hard.
What made me write fan fictions? That’s an easy one. Tekken. Yes, the Namco game. I loved it the first time I played Tekken 3. I loved the plot. I loved the idea of kicking someone’s ass and having a reason to do it. Hwoarang and Jin for instance. They’re rivals, and I began wondering what kind of story could there be between them. It was an addiction for many years. I wrote several stories about Tekken and as the games kept coming out, I got more and more frustrated with Namco. They ruined the story for me with Tekken 6. I’m conflicted now. I want to write more but in order to do it I need time, I need to rewrite my old stories, I need inspiration and I need Namco to get the plot right! Come on, I know it's only a videogame but some character's stories seem like they were written by someone retarded! For now all my Tekken projects are on standby until further notice.
And then there’s Twilight. I must be honest. I hate Twilight. I hate how S. Meyer ruined a potentially good story. I hate her empty characters and cliché ending. It’s good entertainment but it’s not my thing. So I’m not a fan of Stephenie Meyer. I’m a fan of Leah Clearwater though. I think she’s the only good character she created. At least she’s the only one who sounded real to me. I disliked Breaking Dawn so much I had no option but to imagine another ending for the saga for myself. And I started writing right away. Our Dawn was born, and then its sequels. And I’m not done yet because I fell in love with Jacob and Leah and the possibility of them to fall in love and have a happy ending with children and everything that comes along with kids. On my original script, Leah was supposed to die in Our Dawn 2. I’m happy I didn’t kill her though.
Why do I keep writing after all these years? No, it's not because I'm planning on becoming a writer or being famous. I just like to imagine a story and write it down. I respect my readers above all and I enjoy knowing there are people reading what I wrote. As long as I feel there are still things I want to tell about my stories, I’ll keep writing.
As any other author out there I also enjoy reviews. So far I received good reviews, bad reviews and downright weird reviews. To all the people that took the time to write down a good review, thank you so much. Please know in your heart that I keep writing because of you.
To all the ones who wrote down that my writing and my stories suck, well I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it but you have hundreds of other stories to read if mine are not of your liking. You do realize that you can write reviews saying you don’t like the story without being rude, right? Remember that education is something that most human beings learn at young age, be sure to use it. I hated Breaking Dawn and didn’t call S. Meyer or write her telling her it sucked. She worked years on those books. She worked hard and many other people like it so I just have to suck it up. Do the same and remember that a writer always works hard and deserves your respect.
To all the people that write down weird reviews: what the hell? Write down things I can understand, okay? I mean what am I supposed to think when you write things like “potato salad goes well with mushrooms”??? Is that supposed to mean anything? Is it even related to my story or you just happened to be writing a recipe and posted it by mistake in the review box?
There are also some of you who try to make me write things you want to read instead of my stories. That’s not going to happen. I can accept some requests and ideas from many of my readers (I’ve actually done it a few times and I don’t regret it) but reviewing a chapter telling me I should write down a story about Jacob ending up with a girl named Lana, who’s half-wolf and half-vampire, who had her parents killed by the Volturi and went to live with her aunt or whatever, and has blue eyes and white fur when she phases, is a little too much, don’t you think? If you want that to happen, write your own story. You clearly have your ideas, so use them. You don’t need me to do it for you, and you sure don’t need to tell me my story is stupid because I put Jake and Leah together. I’m a Blackwater fan, what were you expecting? I don't read anything else but Blackwater. There are many non-Blackwater fictions that are incredible but if it's not Jacob-Leah, I usually don't read them not because they're not good enough, because they are, it's just that they don't focus on my favourite characters.
I wish you all a wonderful 2016. Take care, Karisan

Jacob and Leah find out that Edward and William were taken to Italy to the Volturi, and while Jacob, Bella, Jasper, Carlisle and Alice fly to Europe to get them back, Leah and the packs search for Harry who is found in Anchorage.

Jane tortures Jacob for a few days until he finally agrees on letting the Volturi take William after he turns fifteen. Back in La Push Jacob reunites with his family and learns that Leah is pregnant. After going to Canada to meet Carlisle for a medical appointment, the pack has to deal with a new enemy, Joham, who attacks Quil and manages to snatch Leah and Kim.
