    Really??? a year and a half later and someone is gonna try to sue her over breaking dawn? and all because the wedding and the honeymoon were the same? seriously? I've never even heard of Jordan Scott or her retarded book. plus she wrote that book when she was 15!! seems to me she saw the twilight train coming and said hmmm let me jump on that!

    This site states right there that Breaking Dawn had a copyright in 2004 under a different name! Eat that Jordan Scott!

    How silly! You know what? She's probably going to get a boost in book sales though just for the publicity. :rolleyes:

    I bet you that's just what she's hoping is going to happen! But seriously, suing, when Meyer published it first?

    If u look up Jordan Scott u'll see she's a young hippy bleached blonde chick. She also sings as well as writes. She looks kind of like Courtney love. She prob knows she's never gonna get anywhere in life. ugh. makes me sick.

    lol, I'm gonna sue all of you because you guys are a rip off of me:
    - you exist (like I do)
    - you are human (like I am)
    - you were born (like I was)
    etc.
    I mean seriously... can it can any worse? Jordan could attempt to sue Meyer over writing a book with vampire charakters and it would be the same outcome I guess.
    If I were to judge that case I'd tell that author to back off and find a job where she's better at.

    I could see if L.J Smith was trying to sue Meyer. At least theres a foundation there. Smiths Vampire Diaries came out in the 90s and is very very similar to twilight. That wouldn't do any good tho. All Vampire books r the same. girl falls in love with a vampire who wants to eat her.

    HA! very funny.

    Although not too smart on Jordan's part because i am sure when this is over Meyer will counter-sue.

    Ah, Meyer will make lots of profit with that claim Jordan has. But why should she counter-sue? That would be... only a bunch of work for her without any meaningful outcome.

    She should counter-sue just to prove to scott that what she did was just plain stupid.

    That would just mean that Meyers is as "stupid" as Scott. What would be the sense in that? Meyers should be above that, She knows that she didn't steal her story. So why should she care what Scott does?

    Well then fine. but scott should at least be forced to say sorry to her as well as all the twilight fans. This whole thing is the reason they haven't even given out scripts for breaking dawn yet.

    What really botheres me is that someone "published" Midnight sun over the internet and Meyer stopped writing on it because of that. *grml*

    I know! It's a good thing nobody knows who did it. There would be hundreds of pissed off twilighters waiting at their door.

    also goes to show that no matter how well u know someone u just cant trust em sometimes. Meyer knows who did it. she only sent limited copies to close friends and family.

    I've read it on her website and its awesome! =(

    Yup- I'd be there as well... I just hope Meyer gets over it- even if I'd have to buy Midnight sun twice to make up for the damage...

    It would be so cool if she redid all of the twilight books from Edwards POV

    I'm an extreme twilight nerd I guess. I've read the books like a million times each so that wouldn't be boring for me. It would be pretty cool if she did small books on like Alice and Jasper or Rosalie and Emmett.

    but that wouldn't be anything new for her. I as an author wouldn't be too enlightened if my fans wanted me to tell the same story over and over and over again... <.<
