They say I'm obsessed because I don't think people who aren't true fans of a novel deserve to have an autographed copy of the novel that they'd probably only sell on eBay. >_>
Okay, let me tell you this story..
So some of you might've heard this, but Habbo Hotel did a huge New Moon contest. You might've read about it: http://www.twilightlexicon.com/2009/11/05/habbo-hotel-to-include-virtual-items-and-chats-with-cast-members/
Yeah, I was all over that. It was basically a really easy trivia that was done on all of the Habbo hotels. If you saw the movie, you would've gotten all the answers. If you read the book, it would've been a breeze. [Except the tie-breaking trick question: "How many wolves are there in New Moon? 5, 9, 12 or 3?" That's everything but the answer, because in New Moon there are 7. "How is this possible? I thought there were 5 counting Jacob," you may question. And I'll respond with, "It was suggested Harry died when he learned Seth and Leah phased for the first time. Which means Seth and Leah phased before Harry died. Harry died before New Moon was over. Now recount."] Any who, from the USA hotel, I was the winner: http://www.habbo.com/articles/1390-habbos-biggest-new-moon-fan
. And so I was so excited.
Until I see that the Habbo UK winner wanted to sell his trophy. And he did.
This made me so angry. That's EXACTLY why I didn't want anyone else to win on the USA hotel. I'm sorry, but if you win anything Twilight related that says right on it that you're the BIGGEST FAN OF TWILIGHT, and if you love Twilight.. Ugh! It makes no sense whatsoever to sell that trophy. Unless, of course, you don't really like Twilight, but just wanted to win the trophy for the purpose of selling that trophy to other people who want it because it "looks cool".
And on top of that, I learned something about the UK Hotel's winner's prize:
"Besides several Badge and pieces of furni we have some exclusive prizes for the winner of the finale. Winner will receive a unique Habbo New Moon Trophy! This award is only given to the winner and will never again be sold or given away. So really its one of a kind! In addition the winner, along with the finalists coming 2nd and 3rd, will recieve a signed copy of the book New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
. A great collectors item for true fans
He got a signed copy of New Moon. x_x I bet you anything he sold it on eBay.
But what I'm really fizzed off about is that it was the same competition, but the UK hotel got the better prize. The Canadian hotel and States hotel didn't get signed copies of New Moon. What's up with that?
But no one cares.. I'm just obsessed. x_x
