Hello my name is Dianne and I am a married mother of two sons, 23 & 20. I am completely infatuated with Rob. Well two of them actually, since hubs is also named Rob. (Win, Win!) Thank goodness he doesn't give me any crap over it, I guess that is because he gets to reap all the benefits. :-)
I have always hated reading all my life until I discovered ff and now...well... they own me. I wish I had more time to read, but I work a ton. At least 12 hrs a day.
I didn't discover Twilight until New Moon came out on DVD. While out shopping late at night, I saw the forever-long line of people waiting to get the DVD at midnight and that had me curious. I thought it was a teenybopper movie, but who I saw in the lines, weren't teenyboppers. I didn't get the movie that night, but the next day I was in another store with the family and noticed the big huge display case for New Moon was completely empty. As I was wandering around the store waiting for everyone to finish shopping, I saw a misplaced DVD. I picked it up and then thought, hum, I think I better get this. Maybe I am missing something BIG.
Well New Moon is no good without the first movie, so I got Twilight too. I watched the movies back to back and that was it, I was hooked. I txt'd a friend who had been trying to get me to read the books for a long time to bring the Twilight book to work the next day. I know, roll your eyes, but remember, I didn't like to read. Well, I consumed the book and ordered all of the series 2nd day air. I read all the books in one week, while working 12-14 hrs a day. I am not sure I even slept. Hubs was baffled, mom was flabbergasted. Everyone was pointing at me and saying look - she is READING !!
From there I wondered if I was infatuated with Edward or "that guy who played Edward". That lead me to google, which lead me to Midnight Sun and a man named Robert Pattinson. RAoR has my daily home for years. Tons and tons of women, many older than I, that had been bitten as well. I thought wow, there is nothing wrong with me.
Years later, I am just as hooked as I was in the beginning. Between RAoR weekly rec's and being severely disappointed in Breaking Dawn, lead me to the wonderful world of FF. Ahhh!!! I was in heaven. Someone isn't scared to say more than broken headboards and covered in feathers. Fade to black is not what I want. No wonder I didn't like newspapers, magazines, books. It all had the wrong content to keep me interested. I have read everything, Romance, Angst, BDSM, Comfort, Hurt, AH and AU. Angst isn't my fav, but I can get through it by plunging ahead and please allow me a HEA. Real life doesn't always grant those, but I escape to the reading world to have one.
There are many talented writer's out there. I could never write, and I am in awe of those who can. I do lack a verbal filter, and I prefer the books to be the same way. It is what it is. I don't need it candy coated, and I definitely don't want it PG-13. I want to feel what the character's feel. Be it love, hurt, anger or lust. That being said, H.S. fics are not my cup of tea, although I have read a few of them.
EPOV will always be my fav. I love that we get into their minds, their soul. To know their wants, their desires, what sends them over the edge. That is the twitch-in-my-seat feeling that sends me to Def-Con 10 and panting for more.
You can usually find me at RAoR, TCS, RobAttack, Twilighted, or tumblr. Although I have a twitter and a facebook page, I find I really do not have a lot of time to spend there. I have a youtube page that you will find basically Rob. I am dmickey on twilighted.net and everywhere else rdmickey1989.
I have been asked a few times about the significance of the year in my profile. For those that really are curious, 1989 is not the year I was born, it is the year I was married. *snort* (I have been asked that way too many times)
While I have started reading many ff, some I wound up abandoning. If the story is twilight related, then I prefer the usual pairings. I have found I can read just about anything as long as I have a HEA and well, I like the lemons. I also find reading WIPS that the momentum of story changes and it gets lost without regular updates. I have had some go 1.5-2 months without an update and then start posting again. It is not that the story was bad, I just found that I would have to re-read just to get caught back up in the story. I wound up abandoning the story and perhaps will pick them back up later when they complete. There is just too many I want to read just to have to re-read a chapter in order to get back into the swing of things. I understand RL gets in the way, it does with mine as well, but instead of having a bad taste in my mouth for needing more and cannot have it, I found it is just better to save til later.
For someone who never reads... *snort*
The fanfics that are worth repeating that I have either already read or currently reading are:
WIPS or currently reading
An Innocent Discovery
WIPS currently reading in Semi - Hiatus
A Taste of Honey
A Debt Repaid
