Attendee Spotlight - @mrsrandygiles

HEY, HEY, HEY! Let's meet incomple.


:) I'm Lauren. I go by mrsrandygiles on twitter, but I'm known as incomple on ADF,, and Twilighted. 

I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I actually saw the movie first. I picked up Twilight after seeing the film way back in.. 2008 was it? I actually went to see it with my boyfriend at the time, neither of us having any idea what it was, and ended up enjoying it thoroughly. It was so campy and great, right? Er, even if it was unintentional. I remember actually LOLing through most of the scenes ("you better hold on tight, spider monkey") and having the 13-15 year old girls in front of me furiously turning in their seats to give me dirty looks. I didn't pick up the book until a couple of weeks later, when my best friend was all "OOOMMMGGGGG you HAVE to read them!" and the rest is history. Needless to say, I read all 3 in less than a week's time and was totally hooked.

I'd read some Harry Potter fic back in the day but had never really gotten into it, so I didn't even *think* about twific probably for a good 6 months. Honestly, I don't even remember how I discovered it, but tells me my first favorited story was "The Dominant" by tara sue me, added in April 2009. :D I've kind of fallen off the ff wagon in the past 6 months, as I am a full-time graduate student with a full time job here in Vegas (yep, I live here). I just haven't had a lot of time lately, unfortunately, to read fic. I *do* still harbor dreams of one day actually writing (and finishing) one of my own. I've started a couple, and I even had betas and everything (!!!), but I only got about 3 chapters in and neither were ever posted. I used to be quite active on ADF, but I haven't actually commented on a post in 20 years probably. Some of my favorite fics are probably considered classics by now: With Teeth (talulablue), Sleepers, Awake (Feisty Y. Beden), We Come to Life Beneath the Stars (lillybellis), Awake in the Infinite Cold (quothme), and of course Volition (Rochelle Allison), to name just a few.

Anyhow, I'm *so* excited to meet everyone! Please say hi!!! I'll be the one with the giant camera (photography student).

P.S. Was anyone at the meet up at Comic Con last year? I was totally there!! I'd love to see some familiar faces."

So excited to meet you. I'll be the one hiding from the camera. ;)

So, I'm enroute to Vegas (Amber) and Amanda is already there. IT'S TIME TO PARTY!
