The Sunshine Train
John F. Kennedy said once that the courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy. A man does what he must, in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures, and that is the basis of all morality.
I couldn't agree more.
Courage was the reason I was here. Courage and love. We know Edward and Bellas story during Twilight, but what if it was different? What if Alice was the new girl, and Bella was already a vampire? Would Jaspers self-control hold out when he meets a girl whos blood smells so intoxicating to him? Mostly AxJ, all canon pairings. Thank you so much to MoonSpinner for the amazing banner!!
Read on and enjoy. Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight, and i never ever ever will :(

So that's it. The final chapter. Done.
And I am actually really really sad :(. I mean I knew I would be, but wow. If it wern't for the large jar of peanut butter I am currently consuming, I could be practically inconsolable.
I want to say thank you to everybody. Everyone who read my story - even if you hated it. Everyone who reviewed, even to tell me that I'd made mistakes.
And THANK YOU to everyone who KEPT COMING BACK, chapter after chapter, helping my cling to my self esteem as I wrote with their words of encouragment :)
A BIG BIG thank you to Jaspers_Vampire_Princess, who was my FIRST EVER reviewer!
Another thank you to Ghostwriter71, who writes the longest & most complex reviews ever, that always make me laugh aloud! And thank you for getting me through the few days I was snowed in, because England sucks!
Thank you to Courtttycakes17 with her unique smileys that always make me smile, "]. And for asking me to co-write her story with her, and for just generally being amazing!
Thanks to silkoverglass, who reviewed every single chapter, and kept me amused for hours!
Thank you to Lovely321 who's review on 'Hide and Seek' made me laugh aloud. Some amazing constructive critisism!
Thank you to the amazing MoonSpinner, who made me the wonderful banner!!!
Thank you to Trini fan, who left my favorite review of all time -
this isn't really related but did u know that the name Edward means wealthy protector?? go figure huh??
AAAAnd thank you to Lilly Of The Valley who, without which, most of these chapters would still be sitting on my laptop half finished, as she stressed at me to update every single day :)
So, the sequel will be called 'A Rainy Afternoon' and I've partially written the first few chapters, which should be exciting. It is following a similiar storyline to New Moon, and I apologise in advance to any Jacob haters out there, he will probably feature in it quite a lot.
There will be NO Jacob/Alice action WHATSOEVER. Hell no.
But I need to bring the wolves into it, so he will be there.
The sequel will be up in a few months, (A Rainy Afternoon) I have exams coming up and will get them out of the way first.
Also, you amazing reviewers have re-sparked my love of writing so much, that this summer (and pretty much any free time I have) I will be spending writing my own book!!!
I'm so excited!
If you've ever popped over to twilighted(dot)net, you would know that there are some AMAZING stories over there. I am currently in the process of getting TST validated over there, so don't be shocked if it pops up sometime soon!
If you ever do get a chance to visit said site, here are some AMAZING stories that I reccomend.
(Most of them are A/J, 'cause that's how I roll :))
'Do These Dresses Come In Pixie?' (J/A meets 27 Dresses, one of the best crossovers that has ever exsisted!)
'Tropic Of Virgo' (Its might be mostly E/B, but there are some cute J/A moments. And seriously, one of the BEST AH Twilight stories I've ever read. I'm hooked!)
'Boycotts and Barflies' (AH, with plenty of Laugh Out Loud moments, LOVE IT!!)
'We're Going Where?!' (Follow up to Boycotts & Barflies, and HILARIOUS. I've read it countless times, and I still laugh. And there's a nice bunch of J/A moments :))
'Socks For Sex'(An AH story of housewife Bella & Singleton Alice trying to find love. Amazing!!)
'The Good Looking Loony Toons Stalker Guy' (Hilarious, amazing, wierd & SO original. I have spent HOURS trying to work out what the hell is going on. And it's mostly J/A, which is enough for everyone!)
'What He Would Have Wanted' (The amount of times I have wanted to reccommend this to Lilly Of The Valley, but stopped myself. Countless. It is very sad, and you will cry. Countless people die, people change, people leave. But it's amazing. And plus, there's a sequel!)
'Turning Dust Into Gold' (Another epically long, but amazing written AH story, with LOADS of A/J)
'[restless to climb]' (One of the first Twilight fanfics I ever read on this site, and MY GOD. I love it so much. Hint - if you LOVE Jasper, or even if you don't, then read this. You will love him so much it hurts by the end!)

(Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all of the people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you)
I have a proposition for you, (or those who will be upset that you won't be hearing from me for agesss)
If there are any chapters in TST that you would like heard from another characters perspective (meeting the Cullen's from Bella's POV? Alice's change from Edward's?)
Then drop me a line :) And if I like the idea, then I will write it, and add it on to the end of this story for your enjoyment!
Something for me to do every few weeks to break up the monotony of exams :)
Now I have to go before I start crying :)
