How did I fall down the Twilight rabbit hole? It began November '07, when I picked up Twilight at the library. I have always had a fascination with vampires (don't we all?), but had been resisting Twilight, thinking it was just teen romance lit. Well I ended up devouring the book and finishing it in the wee hours of the morning. Then I went straight to Amazon and ordered Twilight, as well as New Moon and Eclipse. I barreled through the two other books as well. The movie's release in November '08 was like manna from heaven. I saw it at the theatre, umm, five times. Yes, you read that correctly: 5 times. My friends were starting to look at me funny. I was reading everything online I could find about the books and the movie, and then I discovered a whole new world called fan fiction. My Twilight rabbit hole was getting deeper and deeper, and my husband was starting to wonder if an intervention was needed.
Then somehow the Fates said, "We need to turn this chick's unhealthy obsession into something productive. Maybe set her up with a Twilight-related job." And with a wave of a wand somewhere in MSN Heaven, a contract and a W9 form materialized...and I became the Twilight Superfan. Crazy! But crazy awesome.
I'll be trolling the Net for Twi-related news, updates, media, etc., and sharing the good stuff here. I'm looking forward to this site growing and to building a community of Twilight fans!
