Character Tropes → Leah Clearwater
Panlight’s rendition of “Chuckesmee” on the left and the real Chuckesmee on the right.
Who would have thought me ‘shopping Renesmee’s hair on an actual Chucky doll would be THAT close?!?
Meet the girl of Chucky’s dreams!!!! Nah, even Chucky would have more sense to touch something so nauseating! He had better taste with Tiffany!!!! Seriously now, meet Chuckesmee *shudders*
This is a must read for any and every Leah Clearwater fan out there (even if you’ve never seen a single episode of Supernatural)
The Wedding Crashers, Chapter 1 (more chapters are linked at the bottom of the pages) Summary: After two years on her own, and two more as a hunter with Sam and Dean Winchester, Leah thought she’d escaped her old life at La Push. But when she’s called home to attend Jacob and Renesmee’s wedding, she brings a little company, and the stage is set for her old and new lives to collide.
And then there’s this interpretation of how Leah met Sam and Dean (based on TWC)
The Lone Wolf: Neelys Cemetery
Things are going well with the Leah-fic right now. It seems whenever I start writing on it it usually takes a force of nature to get me to stop writing. Which is sometimes a good (or bad) thing depending on you perspective. Have you ever noticed that when you handwrite a story you seem to come across more ideas for the story than you usually would have by typing it? I’ve been writing fic off and on for 12 or 13 years and I’ve always noticed this (especially when all you want to do is write down your ideas for the fic but someone else in the car insists on interrupting you for one reason or another, all the time, and all you wanna do is get those ideas onto paper before you lose details! It’s infuriating) And for the record, it’s a part of the reason I always carry a small notebook with me wherever I go.

The Y.A. author’s Fickle Fish Films keeps the focus on romance in Keri Russell starrer
“Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer is moving on. She’s put a stake in the heart of her megahit vampire franchise, and saw modest results ($48 million worldwide) earlier this year from an adaptation of her romantic sci-fi novel “The Host.”
These days, instead of writing, she’s more focused on being a producer — a skill she gained from assuming that role on the final two “Twilight” movies and “The Host.” Her two-year-old shingle Fickle Fish Films, launched with co-topper Meghan Hibbett, is readying its first release, “Austenland,” starring Keri Russell as a die-hard Jane Austen fan who plans a vacation at a country house steeped in the world of the 19th century British romance writer. The film, adapted from Shannon Hale’s novel of the same name, and directed by first-time helmer Jerusha Hess, will be released Aug. 16 by Sony Classics, which snapped up U.S. rights to the quirky $6.5 million comedy following its Sundance debut.
Meyer spoke with Variety’s Dave McNary about the rigors of producing the work of others vs. the expectations of her own, the end of the “Twilight” series, whose five films generated $3.3 billion in worldwide ticket sales, and her shingle’s next two projects.
Dave McNary: What kind of name is Fickle Fish?
Stephenie Meyer: (Laughs) Meghan (Hibbett) and I settled on it because we could not find a name that wasn’t already taken. We’d be eating grilled cheese sandwiches and try “grilled cheese,” and find that someone else already had it. We picked Fickle Fish because we kind of feel like fish out of water.
DM: How was it being a producer on “Austenland” compared with “Twilight” and “The Host”?
SM: There was zero pressure, since this was not my novel. It’s a comedy first and foremost, so there was a lot of laughter. Keri was five months pregnant and the least pregnant woman I’ve ever seen.
DM: What was it like at Sundance?
SM: I had the kind of Sundance experience you read about. (“Austenland”) got great reviews, and Sony Classics bought it right away.
DM: What kind of pressure was there with the two “Breaking Dawn” movies and “The Host”?
SM: It was very intense because you have a mental picture of scenes and characters, based on the book. My role was to keep (things) as close (to the book) as possible.
DM: Fickle Fish has optioned two ghost stories, Lois Duncan’s “Down a Dark Hall” and Kendare Blake’s “Anna Dressed in Blood.” Which will you do next?
SM: We’re much further along on “Down a Dark Hall” and we’re looking for a director. And we’re not just doing ghost stories.
DM: What about a return to “Twilight?”
SM: I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.
DM: Is the door completely closed on that?
SM: Not completely. What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth.
DM: How are you spending your time these days, other than promoting “Austenland”?
SM: I’m spending 75% being a mom and a human being. I have a great son who’s a junior in high school, who makes me feel like I’m 112 years old. My other boys are in the sixth grade and the eighth grade.
DM: What are you writing now?
SM: I’m kind of decompressing and figuring that out.
DM: Is there a lot of blood, sweat and tears with writing?
SM: That would be editing. For me, there’s a real joy in writing because the world is what you want it to be. With a book, when you’re done reading it, the characters go away once you’re done. When you’re writing, the characters can last much longer.

Producer now focused on Keri Russell starrer ‘Austenland’
“Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer is done with the vampire franchise.
“I get further away every day,” she told Variety. “I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”
Meyer has been promoting the Aug. 16 release of whimsical comedy “Austenland,” which she produced through her Fickle Fish banner. Keri Russell stars as a die-hard Jane Austen fan who plans a vacation at a resort steeped in the world of the 18th century British romance writer.
Fickle Fish is developing adaptations of a pair of ghost stories — Lois Duncan’s “Down a Dark Hall” and Kendare Blake’s “Anna Dressed in Blood” — but she won’t completely rule out ever writing about “Twilight” again.
“What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died,” she noted. “I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle Earth.”
Why Stephenie Meyer says Twilight is ‘not a happy place’ for her
Uh-oh. Looks like author Stephenie Meyer doesn’t like Twilight anymore.
The author of the books that created a worldwide frenzy amongst teenage girls, young women, moms everywhere and a few dedicated fanboys (you know who you are) has admitted that Twilight is “not a happy place” for her.
Meyer has said she wants to move on from the series that gave us the sweeping love story between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), as well as vampires who play baseball, walk in daylight and sparkle in the sun.
She told Variety during a Q&A: “I get further away [from Twilight] every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”
Perhaps the $3.3 billion in worldwide receipts (to date) from the five movies her four books spawned is not incentive enough for Meyer to continue with the series that put her on the map.
Still, the door is not completely closed on all things Twilight: “What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-earth.”
The author has another book that also got the Hollywood movie treatment, called The Host. It was released in March but did not make the waves the Twilight films—and books—have.
What do you guys think about Stephenie Meyer’s current feelings about her own creation?
So this rules out any sequels or prequels, eh?
Now only if Cassie Claire would get tired of her own books.
Don’t hate me. I know I haven’t written anything for my fic in ages and I’me very sorry about that. See I got stuck once I got back to the Clearwaters and how they found out about Leah’s leaving (mostly I was anxious about how I was going to write Jacob in there and his pissed off wolfy-ness) and then before I knew it, it had been months since I last wrote anything for it.
But I am writing something now and I don’t know if I will even bother typing in what I have so far because I’m afraid I’ll get everyone’s hopes up (including my own).
So unless I finish what I barely have in a small notebook page of (yes I’m handwriting this baby).
But I guess you could say it kind-of does take place in the same ‘verse as the other (which damnit I forgot the name of) but 8 years later (after she escaped, see Leah found a loophole and mighty awesome one it is.
I can’t promise anything will come of it but I can say I’ll keep working on it and maybe post ideas from time to time here.
Making new Leah playlist BTW so we’ll how that goes.
Anonymous Confession #706: “My favorite moment in BD (the book) was when Leah bitched out Bella and made her cry. She had it coming for four books.”
Amen. It was about time someone called her out on her stringing Jacob along. There’s no way that everyone would be so supportive and sympathetic. My cohort SMR wrote her version of that Missing Scene.
Yep. “I’m not giving you anything.” Thankfully I had them on anyway as my hearing is pretty bad and as low as she spoke that line I missed it all three times I seen the movie in the theater! So my catching that line was a pleasant surprise for me when I read the closed captions for it!
Yes, I’m still touchy of the (almost) total lack of (human) Leah in part 2. (see the entry before this) I just HAD to get that off my chest, and I snapped a wee-bit, ha.
