Hi everyone. I'm pretty new to the Lex and I was directed here in my intro post. I'd have been here sooner but I started reading the older posts to figure out the rules and terminology and just couldn't stop. The conversations have such depth and humor. I love this thread!
So by way of introduction, I thought I'd answer a few of the recent questions so you all can get to know me a little better.How has reading Twilight enriched my life?
I've always enjoyed reading but for the first time ever I feel the urge to re-read something. There are so many levels to these books and the first time through I only skimmed the top. I need to go back and read between the lines. The Lexicon and all it's discussions have really shown me how much is hidden within these books. It also gained me 2 new friendships at work with the couple that introduced me to the series. And I took a huge step thanks to the Twilight series...I went to the Breaking Dawn midnight release all by myself. I have social anxiety so I usually avoid things like that, but the pull to get that book as soon as possible was just too much. I was going to go with the couple from work but the wife ended up getting sick that day and they cancelled. I had no one else I could call to join me so I went alone. When my husband got home from work and I told him, he was so shocked but also very proud of me. If I could be a vampire for a day, who would I be?
Zafrina. I love her ability and there are so many neat things you can do with it. If I was in a wicked mood, I could have people seeing ghosts and monsters. If I was feeling naughty, I could make people see everyone au naturel. Or maybe I would be nice and let people who were depressed, sick or dying see things that would cheer them up.Which vampire's kitchen would I like to bake in?
Alistair. I know, I'm weird. But I've always had a thing for the quiet, brooding, mysterious type. Edward fits that bill as well so before Alistair came along I would have said Edward.Which wolf would I like to bake with?
I don't really care for Sam, Paul or Jared. I love Seth's character but he's just too young for me to think of that way. So I guess that leaves me with Jacob, Quil and Embry. Not a bad group. I don't think I'd turn down any of them.
