The Twilight Saga

Just a side note for those interested. In order to properly prepare myself to write more chapters in continuation of Midnight Sun, I first had to draft a timeline of sorts for the events in Twilight and Midnight Sun. Twilight Lexicon has one posted on their site, but guess what? It is WRONG! They said that Bella arrived to Forks, WA on Monday, January 17, 2005 and that her first day of school was Tuesday, the 18th.

You can view it here:

BUT... from reading Midnight Sun, we know that Edward leaves for Alaska and returns late Sunday night or very early Monday morning, and he attends school on Monday. In Twilight (and MS) Edward speaks to Bella for the first time in Biology class. Afterwards, Mike Newton comments to Bella that Edward was acting friendlier [today]. Bella [tried to sound indifferent] when she replied, "I wonder what was with him last Monday?" (p. 51 TW)

So, we know Bella met Edward on her first day of school which was "last Monday." Therefore, her first day of school was Mon. Jan. 17th, and must have arrived in Forks on Sun. the 16th.

So here is the whole Timeline for Twilight & Midnight Sun:
