Show Serious Support!

Aug 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Featured Articles

With regards to the events of the Twilight fandom recently, we, the
administrators of several  websites, have heard your pleas requesting
something be done to support Stephenie.  So, to answer the question of "what
can we do" that we have heard repeatedly over the last twenty-four hours, we
propose the following list of suggestions.  Feel free to participate in one
or all of the events.

   1. Post this for your MySpaces, Blogs, LiveJournals, website sigs etc.

   2. Write a letter to Stephenie at

*Stephenie Meyer
c/o Author Mail
Little, Brown and Company
237 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10017*

   1. Participate in a "We support Stephenie Meyer" video. All you have to
   do is send a picture of yourself showing support to
   twilightthanks@gmail.com and put "VIDEO"  in the subject line. Be
   creative with your show of support, but make sure it is a still photograph
   and not an actual video.  We will take the photos and make them into a
   video that will later be posted on You Tube.
   2. For those of you graphics people who want to do something, we have
   another idea. We are going to make a virtual quilt. Send a 200 X 200 support
   graphic to *twilightthanks@gmail.com *and we will work it into a virtual
   support quilt. Make sure you put "QUILT" in the subject line.
   3. On Saturday Sept. 13, in honor of Bella's birthday, wear a twilight
   themed t-shirt to show your love of the series.  If you work or have
   other obligations that won't allow you to wear a Twilight shirt, wear all
   black, white, and red to show your support.

All entries for the video or quilt must be submitted by Wednesday Sept. 3,
2008. You are certainly welcome to do one in each category, but that is by
no means a requirement. Also please submit each item in a separate email as
it will make our sorting go faster.  If there is some sort of detail we left
out that you need help with, email twilightthanks@gmail.com  with "HELP" in
the subject line and we'll see what we can do.

    OK guys, I have a wonderfully happy petition going on and I’m stoked that 50 people have already signed it!! But I want more, lots more!! The petition is to show our love and loyalty to Stephenie by vowing to NOT read the leaked pages on the internet — instead we’re willing to wait however long we need to in order to get Midnight Sun in print.
    What say you? Who will join me??
    And I promise to mail it to Stephenie myself!!

    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/midnight_sun/

    Thanks guys!! Now go show Stephenie some love!!

  2. Tiffany C. says:

    I’m sooo doing everything on this list. I’ve been thinking about all week since I heardd that Midnight Sun was leaked. I’m have a whole bunch of Twilighters coming over to my house tonight, and we are all sooo taking pictures for that video!!

    GO STEPHENIE MEYER!!

    GO MIDNIGHT SUN!!!

    TWILIGHT FOREVER!!!!!

  3. rachel says:

    I feel really sorry for Stephenie. She said on her website that she gave the manuscript to a “trusted friend”. I can’t imagine how that would make me feel if someone leaked my work online and I completely understand her desicion to put a hold on MS. I do hope she finishes soon because I can’t go without Edward or Bella for more than a few months. I’m definently signing all the petitions and writing a letter. I <3 Twilight!!!

  4. Jess says:

    STEPHENIE MEYER IS A GENIUS!!!! I love every one of her books she had published and i feel for her since someone leaked her story. i would feel betrayed if that had ever happened to me. And i want to let her know it’s okay that she stopped writing Midnight Sun for a while but i do really want to finish reading it. I hope she can come back from this and write better than ever before. Really i will die if i don’t read Edward’s point of view. I am Team Swizterland just so you know. PLEASE CONTINUE BEING MY IDOL STEPHENIE!!

    1 <3 Twilight!!!!!!!!
    Keep it up!!

  5. LuisaR. says:

    I just wanted to show my support to Stephenie, and all her works. I am disappointed by what happened with Midnight Sun, but I keep my hopes up. Because I would like to continue reading about our so favorite character. Hopefully, in the near future we will be able to.

  6. Janet says:

    I don’t know if I’m going to write anything or not. I support her but I also feel like she just wants to be left alone right now. That’s the message I get from her response. I’ll have to think on it. :)

  7. Dishearted_twilighter. says:

    Ok so I think I might be the only weirdo out here that absolutely loves the twilight saga but has been completely dishearten by SM’s reactions to the leak.
    I understand she probably was very emotional when she wrote her post, My heart goes out to her.
    and
    I do not think it fair for SM to punish her loyal fans by withholding MS “indefinitely”
    We deserved a better treatment after all is because of die-hard fans, myself included that she is where she is today.
    Since this is a free country (last time I checked) and I have a right to my first amendment.
    I won’t be participating in the support SM movement although I already sign several petitions for SM to finish MS.
    at least not until SM owns to her share of the responsibility for the leak and quits blaming innocent adoring fans like myself or at least retracts her statements.
    Until then there won’t be any SM loving from this dishearten fan, I know I’m the minority but that is the beauty in a democracy even the minority deserve a VOICE.

  8. Jasmine says:

    I signed the list!!!!!!!!!!!! (obviously!!!!!!!!!!)

    LONG LIVE STEPHENIE MEYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LONG LIVE TWILIGHT, NEW MOON, ECLIPSE, BREAKING DAWN AND HOPEFULLY MIDNIGHT SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LONG LIVE…………………………………………………………………EDWARD CULLEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jasmine (Team Edward,Bella,Renesme!)

  9. Carabella says:

    Dishearted_twilighter – you are definitely not the minority for feeling the way you do!!!

    Whilst I feel similarly, I do feel for Stephanie and think perhaps she should have waited a little longer to address this violation. She was the one who handed out the draft (I don’t really care if it was a trusted person or who that person was!!!). I am not placing blame here, things happen that are sometimes out of people’s control but it seems to me that SM is placing blame by punishing her loyal, dedicated and and loving fan base by placing this project on hold.

    I too, will not be participating in the over the top extravaganza that this has become!!

    I will still remain totally addicted to my favourite saga and will remain in total awe and admiration of Mrs Meyer but as mentioned in a previous post I believe SM will forgive eventually, she will move on and she will deliver MS to her fans and complete this project not only for us but for herself!!

    Have a little faith people!!!

    ahh ]= In agony.
    But this is just like New Moon,
    Well not really at all.
    But Bella began to hope that edward would stay.
    when there was no chance that he would leave,
    hopefully he wont leave meyers thoughts.
    But we all know she is not a tool.
    she is a person.
    I respect her dicision,
    but if she really did feel strong that his
    thoughts should be shared we hope that he will share them.
    please reconsiter.
    [[I make tons of typing flaws too.]]]
    <3 a person.

    Stephanie u have so many loyal fans that wish u nothing but the best in this horrible situation. But PLEASE dont stop writing, we want to see Edwards pov so very much!!! Keep writing…we <3 u!!! :)

  12. Britney says:

    yesterday i was extremely mad at Stephanie, but ….i cant stay mad, i get why she is mad, still think she shoulda just ignored the draft relase and kept writing but oh well, i still support her and always will. :)

  13. Anna says:

    She may not complete Midnight Sun, but Stephenie Meyers has posted what she has on her own site under the Midnight Sun Page.

    Since she posted it, I read it and I would still pay for the book.

    I can understand her pain, and I hope she heals from what probably feels like a betrayal.

  15. Gabriela says:

    Well i think everyone is right!!! But the smartes one is not reading the book until she publishes it… i mean after all she would have never put it up in her webpage unless someone ILEGALLY spoiled the book for everyone… Also I have read stephenie’s post on her page and i dont think its fair that because some stupid loser stole the story out of her hands which is pretty rude… i hope he got fired for messing everything for everyone including stephenie…!! if anyone can get to her please tell her to not give up her dream of edwards POV…!! i mean after all i was tought to never ever give up your dream or your goals because of anything or someone!!! So im beggingg for her not to stop writing… although she’s really mad and doesnt know when shes restarting i dont think everyone has to pay becuase of someones stupid idea of spoiling our waiting for the awesome book..!! im sure everyone including stephenie want to see how edward comes through the novel! i mean its soo much diff from his point of view, as i read the first chapter only!! hope we got supportt!!! if anyone supports me and wants to add me its http://www.myspace.com/gabibeachbabe =)

  16. Kassidy M. says:

    Oh wow i love that idea. Thank you for putting this here. Im ganna tell all my friends!!! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!

  17. Mila says:

    I hope she takes her time to heal from this betrayal and then continue with the story of Edwards Poin of View……I can understand how this betrayal of trust would upset her………….I have read the draft she posted on her site and I still want to read the rest and I will still buy the book and read it side by side with Twilight………….there is so much more to Edward and so many of the other characters that one can not see thru Bella…………………Please Stephenie Take your time but please finish the book…………………

  18. Miranda C. says:

    Hey guys I put the banner on myspace page to show support for Stephenie .. I really like the twilight series and I’m very saddened by hearing about mindnight sun being not finished for all of us fans to read hopefully maybe one day she can finish it and surprise us by putting it out …..
