Why I love Twilight:
I fell in love with Stephenie Meyer's Twilight because of the love story and the variety of interesting characters and a world that I could escape into easily. I think Twilight is great because none of these characters are perfect and all have great fundamental flaws that keep them interesting to read about in story after story.
My favorite books of the series are Twilight and New Moon. I felt SM lost her way when the supernatural romance became a love triangle in Eclipse and Edward took a back seat to the author's fascination with Jacob. I liked Jake in Twilight and early New Moon, but after he became a member of the tribe, he changed into this aggressive and dismissive person when he couldn't get what he wanted from Bella. I also don't like how he gets most of his life decided for him - being a shapeshifter, being Alpha and the imprint. Bella changed too. She prioritized Jacob's feelings over Edward and the great love they had was lost. I read fanfiction to recapture that love from Twilight and New Moon between Bella and Edward.
What I Read:
I read mostly Twilight fanfiction. I like Bella/Edward romance stories and prefer my favorite couple to be the focus of the tale. I don't mind them with other people in the beginning, but I want them to end up together. I happen to enjoy reading both canon and non-canon pairings with the other characters, just not Bella and Edward.
I am a huge Team Edward fan, but I am also a passionate Team Cullen fan. I love how this group of totally diverse people fought against their true nature and became a family. I cherish their familial bond, but don't like when they conspire to change Edward's values and beliefs or side with Bella over him.
I am not a Jasper/Bella fan, either as best friends, confidants or lovers. Too many stories make Jasper everything to Bella, where there is no room for Edward to be special to her and Jasper quickly becomes one of his detractors.
I also love Leah and Seth Clearwater and like Jacob before he was changed into a wolf. My favorite stories explore the Twilight world without destroying the core of the characters.
My Contribution to the fandom:
Currently, I am working for Mylisssa as a pre-reader on Boundaries Undefined(Bella/Edward) and as a second beta on Not a Little Girl(Bella/Edward). I have been the beta/pre-reader for Elvirina's Heart and Soul(Benjamin).
I have been a beta/pre-reader for Elvirina since December 2010. I have edited her stories: Four Weeks, Happy Birthday My Love(o/s), Prima Nocte, Starting Over(as of chap. 20), Life in Flashbacks(o/s), Out of Oblivion and The Thumann Legend.
I have also enjoyed brainstorming plot ideas and working as a pre-reader for different authors across the Twi-fandom, so feel free to PM if you need another set of eyes. I also recommend stories where Bella and Edward enjoy their first sexual experience as a staff member of the C2, First Time Experiences.
