In Stephenie Meyer’s NYCC 2015 appearance, she indirectly revealed that “Fifty Shades of Grey ” spinoff is the reason why Twilight spinoff will never happen. Read on.
According to Business Insider, the “Twilight” spin-off that fans have been waiting will never happen because of E.L James “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Though Meyer did not exactly say in her NYCC 2015 appearance why James’ novel has something to do with the supposed to be spin-off of the saga, many media outlets stated some “obvious” facts that connect the two, and Movie News Guide compiled it all.
As many of us can remember, three years ago after Meyer published her first “Twilight” novel, a leaked manuscript of the author’s “Midnight Sun” was suddenly found online and was spread in just a snap!
“Midnight Sun” is the unfinished story of the 41-year-old American young-adult fiction writer. The book was supposed to be a rewritten story of the first book from Edward’s point of view of instead of Bella.
Though fans thought the partial part of the novel that was illegally published was as great as the first part of the “Twilight” book series, Meyer, felt so upset and called it a “messy and flawed” draft.
In response, Meyer posted her official statement in a 2008 blog post in her stepheniemeyer.com page where she said that publishing her novel without her permission is clearly a violation of her right as an author and as a human being.
She went on by saying that she did not want her readers to experience “Midnight Sun” before the story was even completed, edited and published.
Meyer also added that she felt to that since it was illegally published, her first feeling was “there’s no way to continue” the novel.
“With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die,” Meyer said.
On the other hand, seven years after the incident, Meyer happily announced that she’ll be releasing another “Twilight” novel, although it was a reimagined one titled “Life and Death” and not the “Midnight Sun” everyone is expecting.
In all fairness, the unfinished work of Meyer could still be published, however, in Meyer’s NYCC 2015 appearance, she admitted that she thinks “Midnight Sun” is somewhat “cursed,” but since she felt really good about finishing “Life and Death,” she decided to revisit her unfinished novel. She even revealed that “she had recently written two more paragraphs” for the novel.
However, Meyer cut everyone’s happiness by mentioning “Grey,” the spinoff novel of James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” in Christian Grey’s point of view.
“It was a literal flip the table moment for me,” Meyer said regarding the similarities.
“Masters of the Universe” story started like this:
I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair, it just won‘t behave, and damn Rose for being ill and subjecting me to this ordeal. I have tried to brush my hair into submission but it‘s not toeing the line. I must learn not to sleep with it wet. I recite this five times as a mantra whilst I try, once more, with the brush. I give up. The only thing I can do is restrain it, tightly, in a pony tail and hope that I look reasonably presentable –via AV Club
“Fifty Shades Of Grey” was like:
I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair – it just won’t behave, and damn Katherine Kavanagh for being ill and subjecting me to this ordeal. I should be studying for my final exams, which are next week, yet here I am trying to brush my hair into submission. I must not sleep with it wet. I must not sleep with it wet. Reciting this mantra several times, I attempt, once more, to bring it under control with the brush.– via AV Club
“Masters of the Universe:”
The doors open and I hurry in… desperate to escape… I really need to get out of here. I turn to look at him and he‘s leaning against the doorway beside the lift, one hand on the wall… he really is very, very good looking… it‘s distracting. His burning green eyes gaze at me… “Isabella…” he says as a farewell. “Edward…” I reply and mercifully the doors close.– via AV Club

He really is very, very good-looking. It’s distracting. His burning gray eyes gaze at me. “Anastasia,” he says as a farewell. “Christian,” I reply. And mercifully, the doors close.– via AV Club
