As busy as she is creating the many twists we’ve come to know and love on Pretty Little Liars, even showrunner Marlene King couldn’t resist the pull of the Twilight phenomenon. Sure, she might be a little behind the times, but in our book, it’s never too late to pick a side: Edward or Jacob. Vampire or werewolf.

It’s the decision that everyone in today’s world has to make. And now, Marlene has made hers.

The PLL showrunner tweeted yesterday after embarking on her journey with the series, saying, “Just watched Twilight and New Moon for the first time. Eclipse and Breaking Dawn before Thursday. Fun ride.”

She is powering through, and we love it. This way, she’ll get to see Breaking Dawn: Part 2 in theaters this weekend. You know, if she isn’t too busy coming up with plot twists that will make us cry.

But moving on to the important stuff: Has she chosen a side?

Her second tweet was about just that: “So far I'm Edward all the way. But will admit it was a heartbreaker when Bella said goodbye to Jacob in New Moon.”

There you have it. Marlene prefers the pretty and wise over the hot and shirtless. It’s a tough call, but it really just comes down to personal preference. However, there’s one thing that all of us can agree on.

Whether you love the man who has glittered for more than 100 years or the boy who would make a great guard dog, we all share a love for the story at the heart of it all. And now, so does Marlene. She ended her Twilight session with this tweet: “Late to the party but officially declare myself to be a Twi-hard.”

Better late than never, Marlene. Plus, that’s the best part about Edward. He has all the time in the world. Literally.

Catch the return of PLL Season 3 on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
