There is somehow a Surprise New Gender Swap Twilight Book, and I have been livetweeting it on my secondary twitter at a snail's pace all day long (I keep getting caught up in comparing the versions, which will surprise no one who reads the Hannibal recaps). Yes: Beaufort Swan and Edythe Cullen. My right hand to God.

Speaking of which, bonus Storify: That time I decided Edward was a disappointing son that Hannibal kicked out.

(ahhhhh I was getting done with the "Contorno" recap, daaaaamn youuuuuu)

Beaufort??? There is only one vampire-related person worth that name, and hers is Pamela Swynford de Beaufort.

And of course Edith would be spelled "Edythe". OF COURSE IT WOULD.

Frankly I would have expected an official Harry Potter genderswap more likely. But I'm sure there's lots of fic out there where Harriet Potter looks eerily like her mother. But the notion of Het Snarriet is making me very ill so I will stop now.

Beaufort seems like a weird choice, too -- like, I'm 100% sure she does not intend the reader to pronounce it "Buford," but that's perhaps the most common pronunciation in the U.S. Why not just Beau, full stop? Or Beauregard, if she felt she had to perfectly match the "flowery full name, nickname for daily use" pattern of Isabella/Bella.
