For the first time in my life, I am grateful that Twilight exists. I have been struggling with a terrible case of writer’s block for a few weeks. Fortunately, I have been saved by the new character posters for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

For starters, there are 23 posters. 23. I didn’t even know that The Twilight Saga had 23 characters who needed posters. (Are Michael Sheen and Dakota Fanning still around?
