Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined
When she's not making new TV shows with titles may or may not be an obvious wink to the "Breaking Dawn" cover image -- ahem, " Rook " -- Stephenie Meyer is still an author 1, and on Tuesday Nov. Among the new morsels of sweet deets Meyer revealed about her gender-bent take on the "Saga" starter was her dream cast for the new version. And it's full of yes. Fair warning: Meyer doesn't want people who haven't yet read the epic love story of Beau Swan and Edythe Cullen to know her who's who list because she's launching a Life and Death Illustration Project on her website to collect fan art of her new ish characters. So, if you haven't read it yet but want to obey the "Twilight" queen's command, look away now!

The story is a gender-swapped retelling of the first book in the Twilight series , and introduces Beau Swan and Edythe Cullen in place of Bella and Edward. As Beau walks into the class, a fan blows his scent towards Edythe Cullen. Beau sits next to Edythe in biology class on his first day of school, but she seems repulsed by him, hurting his feelings in the process. She disappears for a few days, but warms up to Beau upon her return; their newfound relationship is interrupted after Beau is nearly crushed by a van in the school parking lot. Edythe saves Beau, stopping the van with only her hand.
Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined is an additional, non-canon reimagining of Twilight. The book was written and published by Stephenie Meyer in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Twilight franchise. The story is set in an independent, parallel universe in which the most significant difference is that the genders, names and roles of the main characters have been reversed, with only a few exceptions. The story follows essentially the same plotline as Twilight , but with necessary adjustments and slight changes to the story, dialogue, backgrounds, and personalities of the characters to accommodate the switched gender roles. Life and Death also features an alternate ending from the original plotline.
