Hello, I'm new.

Postby Timothy » Wed Feb 24, 2010 8:17 pm

How did you pick your screen name?
Well, it's my name. Though, I go by Tim. Decided to use the full name since it's rarely used by people using "Tim" and homage to the fact that Cullen's first names aren't really used much anymore. Was going to do something more clever. Maybe incorporate something about the books, but I was feeling creative at the time I registered.

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?

I didn't know the series until I saw a preview for the first movie and made a note of it since I'm a big vampire fan. And I think Kristen Stewart is absolutely gorgeous (She's a good actress too, lol). But when I saw the fan craziness behind it when the movie came out, I made a snap judgment, and figured it was a shallow teen vampire flick. When it came out on DVD, a friend of mine wouldn't stop pestering me to see it. So, I caved in and absolutely loved the movie. And since it is the usual rule that the books are better than the movies, I bought the series. Read them in like 3 days. With Twilight being my favorite.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Edward. I see some qualities in him that I see in myself. After reading the excerpts from Midnight Sun, I could see more of his true motivations and appreciated him more.

Who is your favorite minor character?
Alice without a doubt. The little pixie makes me laugh. And her mind games with Edward are classic.

What are your hobbies?
I play the guitar and drums. Going to start up learning the piano again. I read... a lot. I have more books than bookshelves. Love to travel. I'm trying to visit all 50 states. Halfway there at the moment. I do a little writing here and there, but I'm too scatter brained to sit down to write something cohesive. I play my fair share of video games and I love watching football.

Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
Georgia

How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc)
The old age of 27

Anything else you would like to share.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would love the series as much as I did. I've read the books more times than I count. I'm actually planning a trip up to Washington State in May. I visited Seattle and the Oregon coast a few years ago with family. And I absolutely loved the area. But we didn't sight-see much in WA. So, I'm going to do a bit of a road trip around the state. Go into Olympic National Park, the coast, Portland, and even though, well to the best of my knowledge, that none of the movie was shot in Forks, I might pass through the town. Basically a road trip.

I look forward to chatting with people on the site about the series. :D

Welcome, Tim!!

I thought I already posted, but I don't see it here! Oh well! Anyway, I really enjoyed reading your introduction! You sound like a fun guy! I hope you like it on the Lex. It is really fun wandering around the boards making posts. You'll probably find your favorite places and people with shared interests. I recommend that you make lots of posts right away to get your "feet wet" and even PM people you feel you share common interests with. It's fun to see your rank change. (in case you don't know about this yet, it is listed under your avatar and starts with "settled in Forks". I'm so proud of myself - I joined Jan 30 and already I've moved up a few ranks!!

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys! It's a nice change of pace to the welcomes you see on other boards that I've experienced. The place seems to have a more fun and relaxing atmosphere than other boards I've been on.

@ vampyre_princess: Ah, an England resident. My second favorite country. My mother is from there. Thank you for the welcome.

@ Susie: Thanks for pointing out the ranks, I missed that the first time around, lol.

@ sweetpea: I thought I might be the only guy on here, but I've seen more than I thought would be on here. Nice not to be the only one.

@ SwanCullen: TwiGuy, lol. I like that. :)

Hello Tim,
nice to meet you! It's great to see another guy fan of the saga. I like your introduction, I love music too and I try (yes I still try, I should practice more :oops: ) to play guitar.
I hope to see you around
look after my heart, I've left it with you
