My name is Paul, as is obvious with my choice of my screen name. I'm pretty much a fan of the Cullen clan, and to a lesser extent the Quileutes. I was a little late to the game in getting started with reading the Twilight Saga novels, as I was not that interested at first, but gradually decided to read the first book "Twilight" after my youngest sister kept playing the DVD of the same name. Needless to say, this 40-something guy got hooked on to the saga, and passed that on to my then-12-year old daughter as well. My daughter and I went to the theatre in the summer of 2010 to see Eclipse together, and really enjoyed the film. I've collected all five -- actually six -- DVDs including the extended version of BD-1.
I tend to like Twilight fanfiction stories that are well-written, have plot complexity, stays within Stephenie Meyer's canon, and can manage to do a logical expanded-universe story. I will occasionally email an author about possible plot twists or snippets that satisfy my curiousity. There are several characters besides the Cullen Clan that pulls at me, one being J. Jenks, so you will see the short stories included in my favorites list -- these are for the most part well-written and therefore worth keeping.
I helped beta "Full Moon Rising," Content1's excellent follow-up story to "Harvest Moon," along with "Downward Spiral." Give both a read!
NOTE: In the process of writing two different Twilight stories (unposted as yet): The first will be a continuation of Content1's most excellent storyline presented in her Harvest Moon and Full Moon Rising stories; the second is an original Aro-centric story based in the WW2 period.
