This thread is just so that people can introduce themselves out of character and we can get to know each other a little better. You can say anything you want about yourself here (as long as its appropriate).
*stands up as if at an AA meeting* My name is Julie and I'm a Twilightaholic.
Ok, but seriously, I'm Julie, I'm 25 years old, and I live in New York state. I'm a graduate student and spend a lot of my time studying, but love roleplaying as a stress reliever. Its been great seeing so many people join this site, and just how talented of writers have joined so far :-)

*mumbles in unison with the rest of the addicts* Hiii Julliieeee
Ok, my turn. I'm Shae and I'm 24 years old. I'm in between degrees at the moment, and just working until I go back to school. I'm not a writer by nature, but I sure as hell try my best. I like dryer sheets, Christmas music and naps. I'm totally inspired by you guys, you're all such beautiful writers! I'm loving it

Yay! I love getting to know people. Lol. Alright, well my name is Shea (what a coincidence) and I'm 18 years old. I'm not currently going to school, hopefully by Spring. I have hopes to become a vet tech. And I'm desperately searching for a job, oh the joys. Hm, lets see.... I love animals and own thirteen; 6 rats, 4 cats, 1 miniature dachshund, 1 guinea pig, 1 cockatiel.
I like to pretend I know how to write. Lol. I too am inspired by everyone's writing here, it is truly wonderful.

Wow that is a coincidence with the names!
I have to ask...Dryer sheets? What is it about them that you particularly like?
I also love amimals (interned at a vet hospital in high school so have much respect for the vet techs), I only have 2 animals at the moment (both cats) because I'm not on a regular schedule yet to take care of them, but I've had dogs and small animals in the past. Really miss having more.

Well, my name is Hayley, and I'm 13 years old. I love Twilight! I live In Australia, so the movie comes out later for me, but I still can't wait to see it! I love the book, I guess that's why I'm here! And of course, my favorite character is Alice!!! She is definitely the best! Then Edward and Jasper tie! I love writing fanfics, and I am a really big procrastinator!
My name's Chrissy and I am Twilightophile and a general bibliophile, it has to be said!
I'm 22 years old (23 on Thursday - I expect presents are already in the post? ) and am a relatively recent fan of the Twilight sensation - just about 3 weeks ago since I first read Twilight, and then devoured the other four and Midnight Sun in quick succession. I live in Scotland in the UK and find the timezone thing to be kinda cool, but sometimes quite annoying when I'm on at 11am and everyone else is in bed, though I'm guessing that must be worse for you, Hayley.
I have been role playing since I was fourteen years old and have played all sorts of different characters from different shows and books and generally made up rubbish I say rubbish in the nicest possible way, of course. I have to say this game is an extra pleasure due to the good quality of the other writers and players in the community and their activity! Other than that, I have an undergraduate degree in English Literature under my belt, and am currently studying for an MLitt in Publishing Studies, which I am enjoying very much.
I wish I could have pets, but my landlord says no My family bought a dog for my sister once I moved out and he's the cutest, most insane wee thing - and he's called Jasper Hehe.
Anyway, speaking of that uni course thing, I'm late. Will post lots later!

Hi. I'm Brittany. I'm twelve and I'm a more-recent fan of the twilight saga. My freind got me addicted. thanks, Kristen! anywho, I love cats and I have sorta an obsession over vampire stuff. And.....Call me crazy, but me and Kristen sware that her crush is a vampire!
*stands up and waves* Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm hopelessly addicted.
I'm a 19-yr old college sophomore in North Carolina. I'm a music major with pre-medical tendencies In other words, I have no idea what I'm doing with the rest of my life. I am not a writer by nature either, Rose (although I've had people tell me that my writing is good). I love RP as a stress-reliever as well, and more and more I find that doing RP has helped bolster my confidence with my writing abilities.
I had a college hallmate last year who was a huge fan of the books. She told me about them and I was stunned that this girl was a fan of vampire books. I had no idea what they were about, so I decided to look them up -- five months later haha. I started reading her copy of Twilight, and needless to say, I got hooked.
Hmm... random things... well, I'm also a member of the NOX and RP my own original character over there... I love amaretto... I like to bake... I had two dogs but had to give them away when I went away to college... and my car is a sex machine on wheels. ;D

Well, like pretty much everyone else here, I'm unconditionally and irrevocably in love with Edward Cullen *swoon*.
My name is Nikki and I'm 20 years old and live in Canada. I only recently got into Twilight. I was eagerly awaiting the Half-Blood Prince release until they moved it to JULY... then I heard about this Twilight movie taking its spot. I decided to see what the hype was about and bought the first book. I was hooked. I finished New Moon in 8 hours straight and today I'm going back to the city to buy Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. I'm only finally seeing the movie tonight!
I've been rp'ing for years, since I was 12 I think it was. I did a lot of LOTR/Silmarillion and POTC. I love writing but I don't have the attention span or encouragement to write a full length fanfiction. Text-based RP kind of died out a few years ago, so when I saw an RP for Twilight I jumped at the chance. Its rare to find these places these days.
I'm an avid horseback rider and own 2 horses. I also have 5 dogs, 4 cats, 8 chinchillas and 2 rabbits. I did have a cockatiel but she passed away about 3 weeks ago now. I usually never base my characters on myself but for Katie I did put in a few things like the horseback riding, Canadian, and avid outdoorsman/hiker.
I finished college in June and right now I'm just sort of getting my stuff together and planning my future.

Wow, Nikki, I am very envious of all your animals - particularly the horses. I love horseriding, started when I was about 8, but my parents had no interest so there was never really a chance that I would be allowed to have one as a pet. Now I live in the country (ish), in lovely riding land, but am also a poor student so can't afford to even get near a horse, nevermind own one!
I know what you mean about finding a good text-based RPG these days, mostly I've just had to create them and cope with the limited amount of appeal of them. I'm loving this one though, it's hit the jackpot with attracting a good amount of outstanding writers which just makes the whole thing so much more exciting!
Post by Katie Florence on Nov 28, 2008 19:39:27 GMT -5
The horses are great but they are tons of work! One of them is always in a crisis situation - she always finds a way to hurt herself lol. The stress alone is going to kill me one of these days.
And I'm envious of your location! Scotland! Wow...
I agree - there are really some great writers here! It makes it that much better. I need to smack myself back into RP mode as I tend to get lazy from not doing it for a while. My posts end up being short and have no description whatsoever lol.
Post by Esme Cullen on Nov 28, 2008 22:31:56 GMT -5
What kind of horses do you have? Not that I'd know what you were talking about. I've worked/work with horses at a summer job I've had for the last three years. There are 2 horses, 2 ponies, 2 miniature horses, and a donkey that I've worked around. Not to mention the other various farm animals.
Post by Katie Florence on Nov 28, 2008 22:55:16 GMT -5
I have a Polish Arabian and a breeding stock Paint (she doesn't have the typical markings of a Paint, she's actually a solid black bay) but she can carry the Paint gene as both her parents were Paints.

Hello everyone, I've just joined up and thought I'd come over here to say hey. I'm Moira, I'm 18 and I live in Canada. I never thought I'd read the Twlight books because I was convinced that vampires weren't 'my thing'. But my friend urged me to give them a shot, and, well just like everybody else, I was hooked!
Not quite sure what else to say really haha. I love writing, and I'm excited about joining up here. Oh, I'm going to be moving to Scotland, and Julie and me know eachother from a Prison Break rpg! --I joined earlier than I said I would Julie! I couldn't resist!
