I'm sure before everyone here got into Twilight they were into other things, had different obsessions


plz to be sharing them with me.



my original obsession was and always will be:


What makes you take a chance on a fanfic?

Wednesday November 11, 2009 at 9:27 AM


What draws you in to start reading a fanfic?  Is it only a recommendation from a trusted source, like this Web site or other readers/writers you like?

How much does the description matter to you?  Does a great banner or artwork really help?  Are you more inclined to read it if it has a lot of reviews?  Or an NC-17 rating? 

I'm curious because I think every writer has to "market" their own story in some way.  In the fanfic world, though, word-of-mouth seems to work best.   If a synopsis has a lot of stupid "will their or won't they" questions, or a ton of typos, I'll mostly likely skip it.  One banner that totally put me off has kept me from reading what's probably a good story.  I don't care so much about the rating.  How about you?

A suggestion...

Wednesday November 11, 2009 at 8:45 AM

I have heard this guy give several lectures on Twilight and he is fantastic. John Granger started out in the world of Harry Potter but has turned his attention to Twilight. He caters to what he calls "serious readers" and I think many here would enjoy his analysis. He gets into the meaty issues of Twilight and explores the levels of interpretation and symbolism that goes way beyond the standard "forbidden fruit". He is a fan and appreciates SM's work but is honest in his criticism and is open to discussion.

If you're interested, I suggest starting at http://fhsprofessor.com/?p=7 .

Robert speaks w/ OK London

Wednesday November 11, 2009 at 8:41 AM


ROBERT Pattinson has spoken candidly to Ok.co.uk today about his struggle with fame.

We met the Twilight star during his visit to London - and he opened up his heart to us about the difficulty of life in the spotlight.

Heartthrob Rob told us: "I was kind of trapped while filming Eclipse, but there’s always ways and there’s always places where you can disappear to.

It just involves a bit more thought and you can’t wander around willy-nilly."

The 23-year-old is the hottest actor on the planet right now since making the role of Edward Cullen his own.

But speaking to us today he sensationally threatened to quit acting if he can't learn to deal with the Hollywood lifestyle.

He confessed: "If I’m still stuck in a hotel room in 10 years time and I haven’t figured out another way to deal with it, then I would be annoyed.

"I don’t really think about [fame]. I just want to see what it’s really like in two to three years.”

French Trailer For Rob on NRJ!

Wednesday November 11, 2009 at 2:49 AM

Robert is going to be on French Radio! He's done an interview with Nikos who animates a morning show on the French radio NRJ (which is teen oriented: 14-17). He's really a smart guy but I'm sure his questions will suck just because of the radio he works for... I'll keep you posted when I hear or see anything more interesting! ^^

As you can see, Rob is speaking a little French and it's turning me on big time! =)))

Edit: OH GOD! He's making the French news now... I like Rob but I'm a little bit ashamed for the state of journalism in my country...

The making of:

"Tell me what you get out of killing. Or else I won't go willingly with you anymore," I said.

It was an empty threat. I was tied to him, and nothing could sever that. Where ever this led, I would follow him through it.

That didn't mean I didn't need to know.

He watched me coolly.

He knew I was bluffing, but he wouldn't call me on it. "When I shoot someone... it feels like I'm taking the best piss ever. I get a... I get that little shiver, like all the pressure had suddenly flowed out of me, and I can walk easy again."



This fic owns me right now. And as far as I know, it's one of a kind. Rare in FF. Please discuss what you think of it!

there's a website for that?

Tuesday November 10, 2009 at 9:45 PM

So I just found this website:


It's... interesting, to say the least. I realized that these people create profile and speak on forums all revolving around their hate for a book series. I kinda took pity on their lack of lives.

Anywho, I was just wondering how you guys handle Twi-bashing in your own lives? Do you ignore it, or do you say something to people who make fun of you? Or do you just not tell people you like Twilight in the first place?


discussion question

Tuesday November 10, 2009 at 9:27 PM

I was reading the thoughts from the restoration post and it has me thinking...

I wondering what SM thinks of her FF?


As an author how would you feel if FF was written from or about your story and characters??

Now I am not an posted author (my stories are kept under a rock where they should be, lol) so I can't imagin how that would feel but I would think it would be a complement. 


Summit diversion or Pfac just being cute?

What do you think? LET'S DISCUSS





Ranger Restoration Post

Tuesday November 10, 2009 at 8:41 PM

The author of this post deleted it, but I thought the conversation was intriguing, even though I personally don't care for the "phenomenon" being reported or the fic in question. This is a place for all tastes & open discussions, I'm resurrecting this shit.

Today at 7:18 PM

FF: Taking the World by Storm

I just typed "Emancipation Proclamation into Google, and the 3rd entry was for the FF story. That's so awesome! Congrats to Khar for beating down the US's history!
