Hi forum dwellers, this is my first time ever joining a Twilight board so I wanted to introduce myself. I'm a comparatively casual fan (meaning, not nearly obsessed enough to camp out to look at the actors or anything), but I am hopelessly addicted to the stories. I'm embarrassed to call myself a Twilight fan in real life, it's pretty far from what I'm normally into, so I'm hoping that talking about the books/movies online will satiate my thirst. I'm going to start off with the questions the mods suggest -

How did you pick your screen name?
It's from Harry Potter :D

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
My friend recommended them to me. Her and I have almost identical tastes in books but Twilight was not what we normally read so I was skeptical. I got Twilight through Netflix when it was released and that's what made me finally cave and read them. The series has its flaws but I was still a goner by the time I got halfway into the first.
As for my favorite, Twilight had the greatest effect on me my first time reading it. Eclipse is probably my overall favorite though.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Well Edward is the reason I fell in love with the stories. I really like Kristen Stewart's take on Bella too though.

Who is your favorite minor character?
That's between Alice and Carlisle.

What are your hobbies?
I'm an artist and graphic design student. I paint, draw, sew, embroider, sculpt, etc. I read a lot and I love music (I'm very picky about both).

Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
Grew up in NYC, living in the South Florida area now for college.

How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc)
Early twenties.

So I dragged my boyfriend to see Eclipse last night and I think he secretly liked it. He kept asking me about the back stories of the characters and such. When the credits started rolling he said "Well, at least he didn't sparkle that much" hahaha :lol:

Hello Hermione (badly spoken by Victor Krum ;) )

Yep I'm too a very big Harry Potter fan....(although Twilight is taking up a bit of that space at the moment)
I am usually very active on the Leaky Lounge forum butthe last few months I didn't have time for two forums..but as I'm now going to really look forward to HP7.1.....I have to spend time there as well...

I'm Marielle btw, from Holland...(that small country in Europe, with the tulips, windmills...and people who still don't know who Robert Pattinson is...)

well if you need anything pm me....I saw Karl offered it as well...
we will be here to help you...
