Happy Fandom Celebration Day!

Happy Fandom Celebration Day, everyone! Thanks to the Darlin's for coming up with this great idea!

I cannot properly express how much of a difference this wonderful Twilight world that we all inhabit has made to me. I watched the Twilight movie when it came out, mainly because I've always loved anything about vampires (Angel/Angelus & Spike from Buffy owned me). Needless to say, I was in for a shock because it turned everything I always knew about vamps on it's ear. But I loved it anyway! I only read the Twilight books in March 2008, since it wasn't that big here in South Africa to start with. Soon after that, I discovered FF & I haven't looked back. I struggle to remember what I used to do with my spare time before. Initially I was only reading Edward fics, but then I read Fate Has Brought Us Here by Cullen818 & I've been a Jasper girl since.

I have met so many lovely people through all of this, especially Steph (Cullen818) who I am proud to call a friend. It's because of Steph that I started a blog in the first place. I just wanted to see how Blogger worked & look what happened. :P I was so thrilled when Steph asked me to be part of the Jasper's Naughty Girls blog with her & Kathy, at the beginning of this year. I am loving every moment of it.

Leave me a comment & tell me what you love most about the Fandom & how it has impacted on your life. Thanks for visiting!

I'm honored that you call me your friend. I'm happy that we met through our obsession. My kids think that it's the coolest thing that I have a friend who lives in South Africa and tell eveyone when TwiCarol calls me. The internet is such an amazing tool!

I can't believe that it was me and Fate that turned you Team Jasper! That blows me away! I still remember when you started reading Fate and you commented on almost every chapter. I also need to say that there wouldn't have been a third installment to the trilogy if not for you and your constant support of Claudia (remember her?) and her creator. You've done more for me and my self-esteen than you'll ever know.

Thank you!

Well meeting friends like you hon is right up there!
Thank you for your friendship, even if recently established. I love how people in the fandom can be from literally anywhere in the world, but the fandom brings us together, no matter where you're from :)
