It's been over a decade since the fifth and final installment of The Twilight Saga was released and became the highest-grossing film of the series.

But did you know that there's an unpublished sequel that changes some key events? That's right. Not only that, but it also succeeds at making something seemingly impossible happen – it makes the saga's cringiest plot even worse.

Since the release of the very first book of the Twilight series, which was written by author Stephenie Meyer, the award-winning novels have gained huge popularity among young adults and teens and commercial success around the globe.

However, not many people know that Meyer also wrote a direct sequel to Twilight, called Forever Dawn, which was never published but can be read at the US Library of Congress. The reason why it was never released is that Meyer thought it wouldn't fit with the young audience, as she covered more mature themes.

Most of its story effectively mirrors the plot of Breaking Dawn with one very important difference – the Forever Dawn timeline doesn't include any of the New Moon or Eclipse events. This, in turn, means that some storylines pan out very differently, with one of the biggest changes being Bella and Jacob's relationship.

In contrast to Breaking Dawn, the unpublished sequel wouldn't see Edward leaving, and on that account, Bella and Jacob most likely wouldn't form a bond.

However, this also means that Jacob imprinting on Renesmee, which is already creepy enough, is even more bizarre and cringeworthy than it was.

How Different Would Twilight Be if Edward Couldn't Read Minds?

As you may remember, the divisive plotline caused quite a stir when we witnessed Renesmee being appointed as Jacob's lifelong soulmate not long after she was born. At the time, some fans found this somewhat excusable, as they theorized that Jacob could've had feelings for Bella due to being fated to end up with her daughter.

But when it comes to Forever Dawn, on the other hand, it's hard to make sense of the imprinting without any sequels in-between. Without the storylines that were explored throughout the five movies, an adult feeling a supernatural connection with a newborn baby is not something that can be easily justified ( or at all, for that matter), regardless of the circumstances and the plot being fictional.

There are times when works that aren't published end up adding more to the story or providing a new fascinating angle to it. Having said that, it's clear that some continuations can change important events for the worse, as is the case with Forever Dawn.
