curiouswombat adds her own entries to the list wondering If Famous Writers Had Written Twilight...


Shakespeare’s Twilight and Cressida – in Verona, the love-life of star-crossed lovers Edward and Bella is complicated by Edward’s identical twin Jacob.

Piers Anthony - Edward and Jacob fall in love with Bella after seeing her panties. Puns ensue.

Tom Clancy – the story takes place in Washington DC, not Washington State, Bella is a presidential speech writer, Jacob & Edward are respectively a marine and a soldier in an armoured regiment, serving in the US forces invading Italy as part of Operation Breaking Dawn, communication with Bella is restricted to letters home sandwiched between hundreds of pages of loving descriptions of military hardware.

Terry Pratchett
Bella loves Edward but he loses interest in her when he becomes the president of the League of Black Ribboners, her fall-back love-interest, Jacob, loses all interest in Bella when he meets Sergeant Angua of the Ankh-Morpork Watch. Bella flees to remote Lancre where Granny Weatherwax give her a severe talking to, encouraging her to become an independent and self-sufficient young lady.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton – it was a dark and stormy twilight…
