I came to my TW obsession just recently, two months ago.
When I had re-vamped numerous times, I started exploring stepheniemeyer.com, noticed the link MS but did not click on it at the time. I had no idea it was leaked. Just assumed it was another book she had written or was about to write in the TS, so next time on the internet I googled Stephenie Meyer Midnight Sun and up popped the draft with her trademark on every page. Please tell me this was not the illegal copy. It sounded on this thread like I would need to pay for the bootleg which I would have then realized was illegal, so I'm hoping it wasn't.
I started to read and when I came upon errors, typos, etc I wondered if this was actually fanfic even with the trademarks. What was going on? Didn't finish reading and next time I entered through SM website and found out the actual betrayal that had caused SM to post the draft.
What a hidious way to have her baby stolen from her. Prematurely sent into the world unpolished and half finished without her permission. I support SM 100% in her decisions and send healing positive thoughts and prayers.
Since SM had chosen to give her fans the option to read or not to read, I gave into my obsessive need and finished MS. Someday I hope to have a copy to match TW, if and when possible. THX for listening.
