Hello everyone. I've been a long time lurker. I used to post on this board when it was a different board a looooong time ago but I guess my account didn't make it through the transfer so I had to create a new one.

I'm an avid Twilight fan. I put off reading the first Twilight for a while, until New Moon came out, because it sounded too much like Buffy and I was still devastated that Angel abandoned her for her own show. (Though I've now since watched the rest of the seasons and I have to say...I'm way more Team Spike now!) That was dumb of me though because when I finally gave in to read it, I couldn't put the book down and in fact started it over again immediately after reading the last page to hold me over until New Moon arrived.

When Breaking Dawn came out, I dragged my poor boyfriend (who is now my husband) to the Stephanie Meyer concert in NYC. I'm kind of shocked that wasn't a deal breaker for him, haha. That's love!

I'm 29 years old and I write YA novels in my spare time. I'm a computer animator for my day job.

My fellow writing friend and I created a spoof video in honor of Bella's birthday: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL7lsVzPCzc

Still kind of shocked the boy didn't break up with me after taking over the apartment with filming this. He's a keeper, even if he doesn't sparkle.

Forgot to add these:

How did you pick your screen name? It's my pen name.

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite? Twilight is still my fave because of the first love. But I like the conflict/battles in Eclipse.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob? Edward by far. Same reason I like Spike. I love when bad boys turn good by choice. In both instances, the boys are only bad due to becoming vampires. (Unlike Angel who turns good because of a curse.)

Who is your favorite minor character? ALICE!!!!!!

What are your hobbies? Writing, making silly videos, obsessing over TV.

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

How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc) I'm going to say 20's since I've still got 6 more months left of them.

Hey!!

Welcome to the lex!! I gotta say I'm a little envious that your now husband was so willing! Sounds like a great guy to me!! (If I ever get a man I hope he's as understanding about my obsession, love, alternate reality that is Twilight.

If you would like come join us on the Team Edward thread and the Team Alice thread.

See you around the boards.
