Hello everyone! Well, I've finally decided to write my own very first fanfic! After reading and reviewing all the awesome Escaflowne fanfic here on fanfiction . net for just a little over a year, I've decided that it's about time I write one of my own…so here it is! Go easy on me, it's my first time.

Ok, I decided to cross Escaflowne with a book called Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. If you haven't read it, you should go read it now.

Below is a list of characters that I'm using from both Twilight and Escaflowne, and some of the characters I've decided to use in place of others. For example, Instead of Bella and Edward, I'm using Van and Hitomi. But I'm still using Carlisle and other other Cullens, etc. And as the story develops you'll get to meet some original characters that I had from my story Everlast as I have decided to merge the two stories in an attempt to give this story direction and to finish it. I have high hopes for the outcome and I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy writing it.

So without further ado, I give you the new and improved version of Twilight of Escaflowne!

Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight or Escaflowne & I don't take credit for anything I may use from them. My original characters are mine as well as my original plot from Everlast though so please don't steal my characters and plot without my permission.

Ok here are the characters:

Isabella Swan – Hitomi Kanzaki

Edward Cullen – Van Fanel

Hitomi's Mom – Lisa Smith

Hitomi's Dad – Shoji Kanzaki

Carlisle Cullen – As Carlisle (Van's foster dad)

Esme Cullen – As Esme (Van's foster mom)

Alice Cullen – As Alice (Van's sister)

Emmett Cullen – As Emmett (Van's brother)

Rosalie Hale – As Rosalie (Van's adopted sister)

Jasper Hale – As Jasper (Van's adopted brother)

Jacob Black – As Jacob

Billy Black – As Billy

Mike Newton – Amano

Tyler Crowley – Tyler

James – Dilandau

Laurent – Folken

Victoria – Celena

Jessica Stanley – As Jessica

Lauren Mallory – As Lauren

Angela Weber – Yukari Uchida

Eric Yorki – As Eric

Ok, have I confused everyone yet? j/k anyway, I realize that a lot of the characters may be waaaay OOC, so if you don't like that, I suggest you stop reading and go find another story, but I'd be greatly honored if you continued reading.

Disclaimer: I don't own Escaflowne (but I do own the box set WEEEE! Haha) and I don't own Twilight (but I do own the book!)

So without further ado…I bring you:

-.:Twilight of Escaflowne:.-

"These violent delights have violent ends

And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,

Which, as they kiss, consume."

Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene VI

Preface

Two worlds and one union—devastation. That which will forever be used to describe the bond of these two beings. Joined under on common emotion—Love. Oh! That feeling which makes us complete, and yet in the same breath, so torn.
This relationship doomed from its first kindling, and yet they meet. Fall in love they will and star-crossed lovers they be.

End

VvvV

I abruptly sat up in bad, taking in deep, ragged breaths. Eyes wide, soaked in a cold sweat, I had yet another one of those treacherous dreams.

I have always had dreams. In fact, there has never been a night that I could remember where I hadn't dreamed. Some of them are frightful. I dream of people dyeing, and then the next day on the news, they find the bodies.

Sometimes I dream of wonderful things, though. I dream of a beautiful meadow with me and another person, a man, sitting in it. I know that I deeply love the man and that he's in love with me as well, but there's this underlying feeling that I'm in danger.

I never see his face though. There have been other dreams with him. He and I, standing in the woods, and then he's gone.

And then I've dreamed of wolves. I don't know why as I have never had any particular interest in wolves otherwise. But these wolves are massive like something straight from the ice age.

I've told my mother about some of my dreams and she tells me that dreams are just funny like that, but she also said when I was little that dreams can have meaning. I have always had dreams since when I was very very little. And I know that my dreams do mean something as not everybody you run into can say that they dream of people dyeing and then those same people are found days later, dead, somewhere in a ditch, or a closet, or dumped in the desert.

Nevertheless, I have never taken my dreams seriously, and I haven't had dreams filled with death in very often. Those are the ones that have me up in bed soaked in cold sweat. But this one didn't involve death.

No. This one involved my flying to Fanelia, meeting Shoji, and moving in with him. I have never really got on very well with Shoji. He and my mother split when I was young. My parents married straight outta high school. But when my mother gave birth to me, one day she just packed up, grabbed me, and left.

And that was that. Ever since then, I've lived with my mother in Basram, while I spend the summers with Shoji in Fanelia.

Well, this wasn't summer and I wasn't just visiting. In fact, it was the start of the fall semester of my Junior year, and I was going to live with Shoji in Fanelia.

My mother had found another boyfriend who travels a lot for his job. She wants to be with him more, and I know that I'm a hindrance to their relationship. So I suggested I move in with Shoji.

At first, my mom was a little reluctant and assured me that I didn't have to do this, but I could see the shine in her eyes at the possibility and told her that it was no big deal, that it was high time I get to know my dad after all.

So that was it. What few things I have are packed and waiting in the car for our departure at approximately 7:00 this morning as my flight is at 8:00.

I have marked this as the end of one era of my life and the dawning of my new life in misery.

AN: So what do you think of the changes? Please R&R as I need some assurance that my new ideas for this story aren't a waste of time ;)
