How did you pick your screen name?
Oh, ha. That is kind of a long story. Good thing I like to rant, and talk huh? Just consider that a warning guys. Anyways, the 'Yo' part is just there for my own amusement. I say Yo a lot and found myself using it in usernames and such for awhile now. As for the Zylia part, that is where the story comes in. Guess what? It's Twilight related. Anyways, back in 2007 A friend and myself started a Twilight role-playing website. Sadly, this site is dead, however within the year it was up it did incredible things for me. I got deeper into writing and such. I met great people too. One day I has a burst of muse for this vampire, and I created her from this site. Her name of course was Zylia. After I finished her with a background and everything, my co-admin was talking about making a werewolf character and suddenly we got into the discussion of what would happen if a werewolf imprinted on a vampire. I am sure you guys have heard that question before. It's just like the Bella and her Period question. We all have asked, and/or heard it before. Anyways, we were just joking around. Then I kind of got serious about it and said I could take my character Zylia for that challenge. Well, as we role-played these two out they became our two favorite characters. Well, like I said before the site died. However, my friend and I really could not give these two up. So we broke away from Stephenie Meyer's world and began brain storming our own. Since then we have been writing about our vampire and werewolf. It has really helped me better my grammar and writing. Who knows, maybe one day our book could be on that shelf next to Twilight. So, in conclusion I figured using Zylia as a username here would me as Twilight related as possible for me.
How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
How I began to read Twilight? Oh dear. That's kind of a long story on it's own. Shouldn't be as long as the last. Anyways, back in the summer of 2006, I went to church camp for a week. This was something I use to do every year. So typically I had a lot of friends there that I hung out with every year. I had brought a huge collection of books. Mainly vampire novels since I have always has a heart for vampires since I was in dipers (no joke. I loved vampires and dinosaurs as a three year old. Quite adorable right? LOL). We had a down time every day in camp. So my buddy and I grabbed a book and went down to the lake. After a while she asked me what I was reading, and I told her it was a vampire romance. Well she gave me this thoughtful look, and told me to wait a second. So she goes all the way back to our cabin and grabs a book to show me. When she brings it back it is of course, Twilight. I read the first line from Adam and Eve and made a face. I thought maybe she was pulling a fast one on me, trying to get me to read this fancy bible. I flipped it over, and of course read the back realizing it was indeed about vampires. But I still handed it back to her really not that interested. Later that night, I was sitting with one of the volunteers there and she saw the book I was reading. Well she came over to me and started asking me if I had read Twilight. I talked to her about it and got a few more details about it. By this time it sounded better to me, but I still kind of didn't want to read it yet. After camp, we had a four hour trip back home. As soon as I come home, my mom wants to go to the mall. I am totally up for that, because I have money and Mall equals books. So we get to the mall, and I literally run into this shelf, causing two books to fall over. It was TWILIGHT. I bought it before I was out of that store. Of course I finished it fast, and well. Here I am!
Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Really? Well lets start with Bella: My friend here at home call me Bella. Because when school started after that summer, I got tons of people into it, thus, making tons of friends. So they call me Bella as the one that started it all. As for Edward and Jacob? Well if I am Bella, that makes me Switzerland as well.

Besides the fact I should have joined a long time ago? I have been coming to the Lex for as long as I have been a fan of Twilight. I think I found the Lex though Stephenie's site. I don't remember, but I do know its been a long time. I remember when the casting was going for Twilight. This place was where I came to see the pictures of the cast lined up. Other than that if there is anything you guys want to know about me don't be afraid to ask.
