    Jacob or Edward?: Jacob
    Favorite Twilight book: Twilight, followed by Eclipse and then New Moon; no idea where Breaking Dawn is going to fit in yet, but I do love them all. [face_love] (12/21: Though that has changed a lot in the months since I went to uni... I can say that I'm not a fan anymore, more of a curious spectator who critiques things a bit too much)
    Twilighter or Twihard? (Book fan or movie fan): Twilighter; can't say about the film until I see it. :p I am looking forward to it; hopefully it will be both a good film and good adaption of the book.
    A link to one of your fics here: None yet, but that might change soon. It depends on what the muse wants to write and when the plot bunnies bite! :D

    12/21: Hey Furball, Shut Up and Listen

    Strangely, I think I have the most problems with Emmett, though I haven't gotten to Edward yet in my fic, so I haven't actually written him, but I think I'll be okay.

    I don't really know why Emmett... I guess I don't want to write him always laughing at Bella or wanting to fight which I know he does a lot but, that isn't all he does and I would like to show that! I want to get into his head, and I find I can't.

    I always write Emmett with a sense of humor. Not a Fred and George sense of humor, but a healthy one nonetheless. For example, in one fic, I have him sending missionaries to the succubi because he thinks they might get a kick out of it.

    I have issues writing Edward.

    I've never written any of them, but I think Esme and Emmett would be the hardest. Em for what mav said. Esme because she isn't seen a lot (haven't read BD) and she's just sweet-natured all the time; having her in a bunch of scenes would be hard.

    Note to all: After a fiasco this morning in which one of my readers wrote a summary of the last 500 pages of Breaking Dawn into her review of my story on another site, PLEASE be careful what you say!

    Absolutely right, and a quick spoiler poliy reminder:

    Jasper eludes me. I can never get into his head, and it's worse when I'm trying to write him with Rosalie. I wish we could have seen them act as twins, but Bella never really saw that, did she?

    Speaking of Rose, it's ridiculously hard to write her in first person. I've tried. It just... doesn't work for me.

    I think it's especially hard because in my mind, the Cullens haven't adapted to speaking the 21st century 'language'. And having not lived back in the late 1800s - early 1900s, I have no clue how they should think.

    Edward isn't as hard as I'd expected him to be, but he's not exactly easy. :p

    In order to write Rosalie, I have to make my inner monologue very self-involved. Sometimes, it's more difficult than others.

    I have a question about the Twilight-verse vampires. Basically, how do they feed on the blood? Are their fangs-pardon the metaphor-like tradtional vampire 'straw teeth', or is it like regular humans?

    Any help would be appreciated greatly for a plot bunny I've got. :)

    Favorite Twilight book: Tie between Twilight and Eclipse. But really I loved them all. It's become my latest obsession.
    Twilighter or Twihard? (Book fan or movie fan): emm...well I guess book since the movie isn't out yet...

    To answer Jon's question:

    The vamps in the Twilight 'vers do not have fangs. Their teeth are extremely sharp, though, and they produce venom (saliva). From what I inferred from the books, they bite through the skin of their prey, causing venom to enter the wound which begins to paralyze the victom with pain, and then the vamp sucks the blood out that way and swallows it.

    That help?

    Jacob or Edward?: It's obvious that Edward is the right man for Bella, but personally I like Jacob better.
    Favorite Twilight book: New Moon
    Twilighter or Twihard? (Book fan or movie fan): Both. I can't make the call until I see the movie, but the trailers have me very excited.

    So, Midnight Sun (Twilight from Edward's POV) was linked to the internet, and Stephanie Meyer has put it up (or what she's wriiten of it) on her website, saying that she didn't want fans to feel guilty about hunting down an internet copy, but she urges them notto read it since it's incomplete and unedited. Someone in SFFBC said that as an aspiring writer, he wouldn't read it because he would hate if something like that happened to him. What do you guys, as writers, think? Are you planning on reading/have you read it?

    Personally, I'd like to think I'm the kind of person that won't read it because Meyer asks us not to.

    But curiosity might get the better of me.

    I read three chapters of it because Kateydidnt sent it to me and went "Do you think this writing style is Stephenie Meyer?" and I said "This sounds like a rough draft or a really good fanfic." I may someday read it all, but only for characterization and now that she's made additional comments on her website.

    I no longer care about Midnight Sun. I used to be pretty excited for it, but I was very, very disappointed with Breaking Dawn. I've also grown more disenchanted with Edward himself as I reread the series, though part of that may be my frustration with Bella's narration.
