I guess it's time to divulge a little information about myself...
The Twilight Saga found me just as "New Moon" was coming to the theatres. A friend loaned me the first three books and I read them all in one weekend. Honestly, I did. I don't know why I kept turning down her offer for so long! Then after Thanksgiving I literally stumbled into FFN and haven't left since! I finally decided to join in January and it's taken me until now to throw a few lines for you to be bored by. And yes, I now have my own set of all four books, plus Bree, which I have read again. And again. I'm officially a TwiHard. lol
I realize The Twilight Saga is the "Romeo and Juliet" of this era. In my youth it was Franco Zeffirelli's version of "R&J" with Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. He was the RP of that time. Go ahead, google him. He was quite the hunky Brit back then. And I'm reliving the lust with the newest hunky Brit to grace us ladies, Mr. Robert. Le sigh. I just wish the papps (and some rabid fans) would allow him to lead a more private life and stop the rude intrusions.
I'm a mom and love my kiddo!!
Thank you to all the wonderful authors contributing their time and talents to appease us of our fascination with Twilight. To those not understanding the concept, their stories are fiction, allow them to write their stories as they see fit and to post them as real life allows. 'Nuff said. No flaming.
03/28/12 - I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS to Erika L. James aka Snowqueens Icedragon aka Icy! Her Fifty Shades series (which started right here on ffn) is going to be a movie! How cool is that?! Several other authors who started here have/are also selling their stories. There is just so much talent out there!
Speaking of other talent...congratulations to feathersmmmm, SebastienRobichaud, les16, Kharizzmatik, tby789, Savage7289, TKegl, vjgm, Gondolier, hunterhunting, etc. for their published writings! I know there are many others which are not mentioned so congrats to you, too!
I also want to give a heads up to these stories (and the awesome authors!), in no particular order, which have a special place in my heart:
"Transcendence" by Savage7289 - Congrats as this was published 02/13/14!! Due to that it's no longer on ffn.
"People Like Us" by justginger - http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5631301/1/People-like-us and http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6018396/1/People-like-us-OUT-TAKES She is now writing the sequel!
"The Story of Us" by SexyLexiCullen - http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5710875/1/The-Story-of-Us and sequel
"Come Back Tomorrow" by Shadow Masen (buy a new box of soft tissues...trust me, and so worth it!)
"Omens" by MissJanuary (another tissue alert, but worth it) DANG! This was pulled right after I finished reading it BUT it will be published so def look for it!
Any of the other stories and/or one shots written by the above are also highly recommended!
Sadly, there are so many other stories and authors which are no longer on ffn for various reasons. I miss you!
