Another "greetings and salutations" from a new person.

Postby AlectoCullen » Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:56 pm

How did you pick your screen name?

Combined my old nick name with the Cullen last name... It's actually funny if you know who Alecto is. For those who don't, Alecto was the leader of the Erinyes or the Furies as they're known in pop culture. Her name means 'unceasing' and she carried a scorpion whip. The thought of something so violent but considering itself just combined with the Cullen last name was an irony I found highly amusing.

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

I was sick for a long time. It gets boring being in the hospital and I asked someone to, quote, "Just bring me some random fluff reading. No technical manuals, no history books, just something nice and simple but sweet. Maybe with a vampire, okay?" She brought me Twilight. I admit, I didn't give it much of a chance at first, but it really grew on me after a while. And Eclipse is by far my favorite.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?

Out of just those three? Bella. She's awesome because she's normal and yet extraordinary at the same time. Also her temper is kinda funny, and her courage and concern for others is heart warming.

Who is your favorite minor character?

Jasper, no question whatsoever. He's my favorite character period, but I digress or I'll ramble all day.

What are your hobbies?

Reading, writing, karaoke, geocaching, watching old movies, puzzles, drawing, being a smart aleck.

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

California mostly, we travel a lot.

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

Mid twenties. But in California terms that means I'm pushing middle age. Just kidding.

Anything else you would like to share.

I've got a self deprecating sense of humor and a tendency to expound about things I find interesting but I sometimes forget others don't. I like Coca Cola and sci-fi television shows, I dislike ice cream and reality television. I collect comic books and action figures, go out as often as possible, and kittens are one of the cutest things on the planet. Also if something I say seems nonsensical please ask me what I meant because I have a tendency to get wrapped up in my head and I don't always remember that people aren't familiar with my vocabulary. Or I'll say something completely off the wall that won't make sense to anyone. I also use the word "shiny" instead of "cool", that will be the one that will crop up the most often.

Mostly, I'm pretty new to being "out" as a Twilight fan so go easy on me. Especially if I forget something.

Welcome to the forum, Alecto. Good to have you here.

I also use the word "shiny" instead of "cool", that will be the one that will crop up the most often.

Well I sure ain't Alliance. ;) Browncoats have more fun of the legal and possibly illegal varieties anyway.
