I have been on Fanfiction.net (and Twilighted) as a reader for a while now, but never put up a profile, because I thought they were only for authors. However, recently I read an author's profile where she said she looks up all the profiles of people who add her stories to their favorites list. After reading this, I decided that I should at least put a note on my profile saying that I add stories to my favorites list when I read a summary that interests me. I do this so I won't lose the story. So, if you are an author with a story on my list, and you haven't received any reviews from me, it's because I haven't gotten your story read yet. I intend to read them all, and will review when I do. It's just that there are a lot of stories on my list, and I'm always finding new ones that sound interesting. Add to that the fact that I read very slowly, and you'll understand why I haven't yet read most of the stories on my list. I apologize for this, but will get to them all at some point, I hope. That's my intention anyway. :)
Just in case you might be interested, I was born way back before the earth's crust cooled, so I am millions of years old. Seriously, I'm likely older than most people here. However, one author contacted me who is my age, so now I don't feel too terribly out of place.
I absolutely love 'The Twilight Saga', and have read the four books multiple times. My desire for more brought me to FanFiction.net (and Twilighted), and I've found some awesome authors/stories on both sites. I'm definitely Team Edward, and absolutely love reading from Edward's POV. (If I had my way, Stephenie M. would finish 'Midnight Sun', and then write the other three books from Edward's POV as well! Go figure!) In my world, Edward and Bella must end up happily together -- forever. So those are the stories I look for. Any other option is too hard to read, so I don't. I prefer canon and AU, though I have read some all human stories that are really good, and there are others that look interesting, so I've put them on my favorites list as well. However, even with all human stories, I still need canon couples.
I appreciate everyone who has written these stories, and taken the time to post them. As I said above, if your story is on my favorites list, and I haven't reviewed, it's because I haven't yet read what you've written. However when I do, I will review, because that's really the only way to let you know how much I appreciate your efforts.
