MTV’s Josh Horowitz sat down for a chat with Stephenie Meyer and asked the burning question we all want to know: Are there still untold stories left in the “Twilight” canon? See below for her answer:
At first, Stephenie was reluctant to make any promises. “Things change so much,” she said. “From week to week, let alone year to year.”
But make no mistake: For the bestselling author, the well of sparkly vampire romance is far from dry.
“There are other stories, obviously,” she admitted. “I have a really hard time putting down characters, and so I know what would happen. It’s just a matter of…are we tired of vampires?”
Obviously, no “Twilight” fans were around at the time that this interview was taped, because nobody launched themselves into the frame screaming “NOOOOOOO!” and instead Stephenie was able to answer her own question: “I think we are, as a general group. I know that I’m a little worn on vampires, so it might take some time to want to go back there. But it’s easy for me, because I know exactly what happens.”
And there you have it: Stephenie Meyer is sitting on, like, a bajillion more stories about sparkly vampires, and the clumsy young ladies who love them, and the naked werewolves who love them, but she isn’t planning on writing any of them down. At least not right now. And if you want to step away from your computer and start wailing and frothing and rending your clothing, well, we totally understand. But for those who just want to know what becomes of the Cullen family and their various compatriots, the author does make one promise:
“If I never get around to writing it, I’ll tell people what happens.”
So there’s that, anyway.
Are you dying to see an in-print continuation of the “Twilight” franchise?
Blogger note: I wonder what makes her so certain we’re sick of vampires? I don’t think we are at all, and a lot of YA best-sellers have been vampire novels, or supernatural love stories. We won’t get sick of stories we love, and stories that are written well. I just get sick of all the poorly-written stuff out there – and I’ll always be fascinated by vampire stories . . . Always have been, too. Yes, even pre-Twilight.
