Stephenie Meyer Is Not Dead

April 1st, 2009 at 8:18 pm by Kaleb Nation

// UPDATE 12/8/09 — There was yet another wild Stephenie Meyer Death Report. Click here >>>

stephenie_meyer_photoHope everybody had some great laughs across the fandom today! It was my first April Fools Day with the site, so I had fun switching stuff out for 24 hours (things will be back to normal tonight!). The Twilight Lexicon’s ‘new design’ was perhaps the most epic thing I’ve seen all year ;)

But, with all fun times there are those few spoilsports who go overboard. I got back from school this evening only to find my inbox bulging and about to burst (even worse than I Twittered yesterday). For starters, the Lexicon is not REALLY changing to a fansite for me. Also, I did not pay/bribe/threaten/cajole/wheedle them to change the site, nor did I even ask, nor am I using the Lexicon to advertise my blog (so, the hatemail can stop, plzthnx?). It was entirely their idea, and I got lots of laughs from it, as did everyone who isn’t half-troll (we even had Summit fooled for a while, ha ha!). I especially loved that epic song :P

To answer the rest of the emails, STEPHENIE MEYER IS NOT DEAD. This was an April Fools Prank that went a bit overboard from a press website I shall not link but you can read about in other places. This story was then reportedly picked up by CNN. Whichever news outlet picked it up needs to fire their fact-checker, obviously. From Stephenie’s website:

…despite some really tasteful Fool’s Day pranks on-line, I want to assure you that I am in excellent health, thank you very much. Also, I have no current plans to write any scripts, sequels, or collaborations, nor have I been to any conventions this year.

So, always check things before you believe them! Hope everyone has a great rest of the day (and nope, I had nothing to do with the new Photobucket either…maybe) :D

    Happy April Fools!

  2. TheHolyThief

    Oh gosh, there’s a gnome behind you!

    April Fools.

    Unless there really is one. Then the joke is on me….

    Despair.

  3. Rachael

    When I saw photobucketthis morning..I yelled “KALEB!!” And then started laughing.
    My brothers were looking at me like I was crazy.

  4. KElly

    WOW yhu got us good. @ least u got me good !!

  5. Jacque

    your use of words like cajole and wheedle in every day conversation is exactly why I enjoy reading your blog so much.

  6. Michelle

    Only two more hours, and I can claim I survived the day. Yikes.

  7. Stephanie K.

    lol I SAW THAT. I saw your face EVERYWHERE.

    And I completely agree with you, Jacque! When I try to use words like those, my friends look at me like I’m speaking a different language. If only I could tape their faces to a dictionary. Sigh. That would be a dream come true.

    I offically dub April 1, 2009 Kaleb Takes Over the World Day.

    P.S. I took a picture, and I call it my “Kaleb Picture” because I accidentally did the exact expression you have on the top left of your layout. The difference is I am a girl. With long hair. Other than that, it is a Kaleb Picture. Bwahaha!

  8. Stephanie K.

    P.S.S.

    ….Photobucket scared me… I just saw it. You told them, didn’t you?! My fear of gnomes is now public information!

  9. Britt.

    I have to say, I lol’d quite a bit when I saw you were “taken over” by Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss is win, but you are win times five. :]

    And that joke about Stephenie being dead is so not funny, not to mention tasteless and crude.

    Happy April Fool’s Day!

  10. Stephanie

    How did you abduct photobucket?! Haha i laughed so hard when i saw it!

  11. Laura

    hahaha 4 a whole day you had a website worshiping you..that must be nice;) and the photobucket..haha

  12. Pel

    Oh brother, you got hate mail???
    I can assure everyone that we asked Kaleb if we could use him for our April Fools. We got the idea when we partnered with him back in November on the red carpet. Kaleb was a really great sport and went along with the idea.
    He also doesn’t need to bribe us for coverage. We genuinely like his blog.

  13. Icy Topaz

    Stephenie Meyer was dead? When? Sheesh, I miss out on all the murders and crap. Finally, she’s become a vampire!

  14. NuttyNetty

    i loved how Youtube flipped everything UPSIDE down :D

  15. Kat

    I’m kind of surprised anyone would bother to send you hate mail about that… I mean, I thought it was pretty obvious that it was a joke the Lex staff came up with. Oh, well…

    Either way, it was EPIC. :D

  16. Pragya

    Those jokes were really distasteful and really hurt a lot of fans who are so totally angry right now!!!….im glad i wasnt paying attention to all this stuff…..and i really cant believe anyone would actually bother sending you hatemail for that!!!…….but it was EPIC!!!….i was rolling on the floor with laughter and that EPIC song was really funny!!!and jeez!!!I really missed out on the whole stephenie meyer is dead thing….maybe edward was real after all and he changed her so she wouldnt continue midnight sun and as as she already isnt i guess he messed up!!!

  17. Tara.Seanan

    Okay, the gnomes are epic. I’m surprised I survived today. I’m a phone operator at Wal*Mart… Yikes.

  18. Susie

    Is it true that Midnight Sun will be released, or is that a rumor too?…

  19. Hanayuki

    Hahaha, omg the gnomes XD
    I missed all those epic April Fool’s Day pranks because I was sleeping almost all day…. roooh :(

  20. Hunter Vala Cullen

    LMAO that’s great. I loved the song=) And lmao I didn’t get to see the photo bucket. Where you actually in on that? I wouldn’t be surprised.

    And good lord why would they send YOU hate mail? Like you have control over that. Jeez.

    I’m really glad that I DIDN’T see the Stephanie rumors. I probably would have freaked. Thank god I don’t watch the news.

  21. Kate :]

    ahahaha i loooooooooove photo bucket :]

  22. Miajane

    LOL OMG
    i totally thought the lexicon thing was real :p
    because april fools day was the day before your over here!
    i was like WHAT??
    but i get it now…

  23. Wendilynn

    okay, that CNN took up the dead story kills me. I saw something on one of the horror sites about Steph being dead and then at the end it said “April Fools” on it. So I have to laugh that someone took it seriously. Any basic search would have shown it for the gag it was.

  24. Nadia

    Hey Kaleb,is it true Stepehenie Meyer has finished Midnight Sun and it will be released this May?

  25. Nadia

    Hey Kaleb,is it true Stephenie Meyer has finished Midnight Sun and it will be released this May?

  26. Dessie

  27. AmyLeem

    DID SHE?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!?

  28. Fear ae

    Why did it had to be a joke…

    Why do you have to call Twilight fans “twitards”? I mean.. just 'cause you don't like her or you just don't like Twilight doesn't mean you should go criticizing her, the movie, OR the fans! (And if it's all 3 then all 3.) I mean… Seriously???? I mean I'm not a Twilight fan either or a fan of Stephenie Meyer, but don't be hatin' on people, yo.
