"I agree that the Twilight fans are very diverse and I don't think that there is a particular set of expectations. "

"Personaly, I don't think there are any typical Twilight Fans, we all look for/find something different in the books and movies. That is the beauty of written work. Each fan has a unique interest, opinion on both the novels and the…"

"What is the appeal to you for it being a Twilight fan fiction vs other vampire fan fiction.  Vampire diaries, Dracula, and I'm sure there are other sources for vampires.  Why have you decided to choose the Twilight vampires to be your…"

JJ replied to Ben 's discussion Understanding Twilight: Bella Swan
"Well, I consider it important, because it helps to get a look into the character of Bella. It's more than looking into her mind, it's looking into her very being. I'm an analytical person, unfortunately. It's an impulse of mine…"

"Yeah, that's true. I would have to familiarize myself with my material. But I'm planning this for the future sometime, so I give myself plenty of time to think this through. Nothing is for sure set in stone yet, but here is what I have in…"

"True, I suppose. Nevertheless, I do like to know what I'm looking for or at. I actually intend to go into the Twilight Saga as an exercise, because by the sound of it, the series is a lot different than the kind of reading I'm used to.…"

"If these new original characters are going to be part of the Twilight world, then you need to keep in mind the Twilight world.  You can get the character history from the movies, but the details of what makes Meyer's vampires different…"

"I think that if you would take a break from "research" and just read the books it would be very helpful for you.  You have obviously spent a lot of time reading opinions, you should just read the source instead.  Because…"

"I'm not new to fanfiction, but thanks anyway. And thanks for the advice. What if I were to create a story with original characters after the events of the Twilight Saga? What would I have to keep in mind, except for the things I can learn from…"

"I have also written some Twilight fan fiction.   If you are wanting to join in the fan fiction world you would need to decide if you want to be relatively canon or non canon.  For me, relatively canon, is that you take the characters that…"

"Well, what I might not be able to find is what typical Twilight fans look for in fanfiction, because I have different expectations than other people do. I found that out the hard way when I wrote one for Star Wars. Lol."

LR replied to Ben 's discussion I'm Thinking of Writing a Twilight Fanfiction
"Obvious it is, but reading the books and watching the movies would is a good  tool for those who wish to write a Fanfiction. Read the saga then come back with any questions still unanswered.  "

Five Things Everyone Should Know About You?
I'm Homeschooled.
I'm from Texas.
I know almost nothing about Twilight, just trying to understand a few things and analyze some criticism of the series.
I am a twin.
Because I am a twin, I submitted an audition video to star in The Spiderwick Chronicles movie, and would have won had they not decided to turn to an actual actor (the truth).
When Did You First Read Twilight (year) and how many times have you read a Twilight Book (total)?
Never. That's the point. I want to dissect it first to discern the unfounded criticism from actual plot holes or intended implications.
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Why?
I dunno.
Which Character Are You Most Like?
I've Google ' d it and found that I am most like either James (the bad dude), or Jasper. (Did I get the names right?)

What is Your Favorite Music
Chamillionaire, a Texas rapper, and Slipknot (those dudes are insane).
Favorite Movies, TV Shows, Games:
I'm a Star Wars geek
Favorite Quotes:
Winston Churchill was arguing with some rival of his (I forget her name) and she said this.
Rival- "If you were my husband, I would poison you!"
Churchill- "If I was your husband, I would take it!"
RIOT!! XD
Favorite Activities
Writing commentaries on fanfiction. (If anyone has any in mind, good or horrible, let me know. Pretty please with a cherry on top.)
