Better Late Than Never...

Postby velvet409 » Sat Oct 09, 2010 12:06 pm

How did you pick your screen name?
I've been using this screen name for about 15 years. It's a combination of the name of my dog at the time and an all-purpose cleaner (not sure if people outside the US will have heard of Formula 409).

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
I was a Harry Potter fan first and kept seeing mention of the Twilight series in comparison to HP (and having read both series I don't see why because it's like comparing apples and oranges in my opinion). My mother got the books last year as a birthday present and I was looking for something new to read and decided to give them a try. I had them finished in about a week. I'd say Twilight is my favorite with Eclipse an extremely close second.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Definitely Edward. I think it's because he shares a lot of personality traits with me so I can relate to him better than Bella even though the books are in her POV. I like Jacob as a character although he really got on my nerves while reading Eclipse.

Who is your favorite minor character?
Probably Carlisle because of his philosophy regarding his life. He got dealt a difficult hand but he's going to do the best he can with it. I also like the father-son dynamic he shares with Edward. His conversation with Bella in New Moon while he's stitching her up is one of my favorites.

What are your hobbies?
Reading is pretty much my only hobby, although I will occasionally run a 5k race to challenge myself.

Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
I have lived in Florida my entire life and never plan to call anywhere else home.

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

Anything else you would like to share.
Only that I am glad I found this website. I've found so much interesting information and have been able to read many intelligent, thought-provoking discussions regarding the Twilight universe.

Hey. Welcome to the lex!

I totally agree with the TW HP comparisons They are nothing alike. It really gets on my nerves when people do that.
I also agree with you on Jacob. He drove me crazy in EC.

If you would like come join us on the Team Carlisle thread.

See you around the boards.
