Hey! My name is Jenny Kate. I've been in the fandom since 2008, when I finally caved and read those "crazy vampire books". Quickly, I realized that it wasn't just about vampires, and that there was so much more to the story. It was about first love and sacrifice and loving someone unconditionally. Something that we all want and can identify with, regardless of age or ethnicity or even gender.
My obsession with the books translated over to the movies...and the actors. I started a blog in 2010 with a friend, so that I would have an outlet for my obsessions and addictions...Twilight, Rob...Rob...and a little more Twilight. I also found Twitter and along with it, camaraderie and friends for life.
About a year and a half ago, I started reading fan fic. I had known about it for a long time, just didn't know why I would want to read made-up stories about the vampires I love so much. I mean, I could just re-read the books, right? Wrong. So so wrong. The first fic I ever read was Emancipation Proclamation, and a new branch of my fandom obsession started to grow. Since then, I've quickly made my way through the "classics". Last year, I started writing fic with my Twi-bestie, traveling buddy, and partner-in-crime, Jiff Simpson.
Even though the Saga has come to an end, I hope my love affair with it goes on forever.
