I am a Twilight devotee in my late 30's.
This is my first fandom, and it is kinda wiggin me out how much of my life has been taken over by it.

I read the Twilight series in 4 days. Yep, one a day until the "Happily Ever After". (Yay business trips and airport lounges!)
I stumbled in here while I was surfing for any Twilight information I could get.
Stephanie left so much open...so much un-answered. Such great characters and she did nothing with them.
So I devour everyone's "this could have happened" stories and love every second of it.

My husband supports my addiction, he read the series so he could know what I kept on talking about.

And really, after the major uptick in my libido, he makes sure I get all the reading time I want...
And ladies, he really really really thanks you for all those wonderful lemons and limes you put out there. ;)

My life is pretty much angst free, fairly boring, but happy. (please don't hate me for it, just call me Anne)
So all this wonderful fan fiction gives me the daily doses of angst, romance and lemons to keep me happy and balanced.

I wish I could write for you, but alas, I have neither the imagination nor the skill it takes.
So I will stick to devouring all of your wonderful works.

Cheers to you all,
