1. What was the 1st Twilight FanFiction that you read?
I first found fanfic after reading the leaked portion of Midnight Sun on Stephenie Meyer's website. I believe the first fanfic I read was the "completion" of Midnight Sun by obsessedtwibrarian. I still love what she writes today. After that, I just got really lucky in my searches. Right away I found lolashoes, tara sue me, and awesomesauce76. I think Let Your Light Shine by lolashoes was my second fanfic. That trilogy sucked me in and ruined me forever. I have been reading fanfic ever since.
2. What are you most looking forward to at the Twific Meet Up?
Coming out of the closet (so to speak.) No one in my real life knows I read fanfic. No one even really knows I like Twilight. My oldest son is the only one who has any idea at all, and that is only because I own the DVDs and forgot to delete my search history on my computer once. He would never guess that I have been obsessively reading fanfic for 3 years now. He just thinks I have a crush on Rob.
3. Are you a reader or a writer, or both?
I am a reader. There have been a few times I thought about writing something, but I really just don't have the time or the motivation. I am perfectly happy spending all of my little free time reading.
If you're a reader, what genre(s) do you mainly read?
I mainly read all human. At first I read a lot of canon vamp fics, but it got a little boring after a while. When I do read vamp stories now, they are almost always darker or sexier or more twisted. I love human stories that have almost no ties to Twilight other than the character names. I also love slash. I'll read Edward, Bella, Jasper, Alice, Emmett, or Carlisle with just about anyone else. I really wish there was more Carlisle slash!
4. Have you ever been to Chicago before?
No, I have never been to Chicago before. I am really looking forward to it. I have actually been trying to find a time to visit Chicago for a few years now. This was the perfect excuse!
5. Have any pets? Kids? If so, tell us how many and their breeds (the dogs, people, the dogs). We love animals! (Well, I do.) (And kids, too!)
I have 2 boys. My oldest is 17 (turning 18 this summer!) and my youngest is just turning 13. We have always wanted a dog, but we are never home. I just can't bring myself to leave a dog home alone all day and into the evening.
If you could be one FicBella, FicEdward, FicEmmett, FicJasper or FicAlice (you get the picture-pick any character) for one day - which one would it be? (I would totes be FicEdward in @TruceOver's A Tale of Two Cities)
Easiest question ever! I would be FicBella in The Trip Home (& The Trip Home 2) by mskathy. She gets Edward and Jasper!!
