Ok. It's actually the first time
I am writing an article about something. And I think I'm going crazy, cause I am writing about strangers. Cause seriously, all the Twilight cast are strangers to us, even if we are so obsessed with them. But I don't know why, Twilight captured my attention.
I started with the books. I still remember. I had this crazy-twilight-addicted friend who was like "Newps, you have to read those books. You are going to love them". I have to say, I was still in the Harry Potter mood. I didn't even wanted to change books. For me it was all about Harry, Harry and Harry. Then Christmas came and my friend (which I thank so much) bough me Twilight and New Moon. He knew that I wouldn't buy it myself so he did it. And I was mad at him (can you imagine?). I was like "I'm not interesting in vampires stories. They freak me out!". And the worst part was that, he didn't want to tell me the story. So after reading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I had no other choice. I started Twilight. I finished the book after two days. Sometimes I wasn't able to sleep because I had Edward and Bella in my mind. I was always thinking about their story. I have to admit. The story as itself is not original. But there is something, something about those characters ... it's magical. So, that was it. I started New Moon, I cried like a baby when Edward left her. And in tree days I finished it too. By then, I was addicted. It was back in 2006. Eclipse wasn't out yet. So I read it again and again. I've read Twilight 10 times. I've never done that before and New Moon 8 times. And every night for about a month I was dreamed about Edward and Bella. Yes, I was living their lives.
If I remember correct, cause I'm living in Greece, my sister bought me Eclipse in July 2007. (I think, I really can't remember). The moment was so emotional that I accidently drooped the book in my Cheerios. My sister gave it to me in the morning while I was eating. But I didn't care. (btw I bought another one of course!). I read the book in about 3 days too. And I have to say, that in this book, I fell in love with Jacob. Not because he's kinder or whatever you people think. but because for me Jacob was like my best friend (the one who bought me the books). So from that moment I started searching on the internet. But nothing was on yet. Yes, the Twilight Saga was a "phenomenal" but nowhere beside US. In Europe none knew them. (my friend lives in US). And everytime I was talking with friends and trying to convict them to read the books, they were like "what the hell is that?". I was so addicted, so I made something crazy. I commanded 20 copies of each one from amazon and asked my teacher if I could put them in our school library. He said yes. By then, Twilight was in my school and every teenager was reading it. I was so proud you can't even imagine. But the problem was that the copies were in english. And rare were the kids reading in english in a French school. So, I started searching for Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse in french in amazon. I found the Twilight and New Moon but Eclipse wasn't translated yet. Anyway, I took 10 copies in french. 5 for Twilight and 5 for New Moon. (yes, it was expensive thank god I was baby sitting every Saturday!!) . And in 2008 they announced that there going to be a movie.
Anger. That was my first thought. Because I've seen what movies done to books. Harry Potter is the example. All the Harry Potter movies sucked so badly except the 2th and the 4th. So yes, I was mad. But at the same year, Breaking Dawn was out! I had finished school and still I was this Fanpire. A 18 years old fanpire ... uh. Anyway.
So the movie came out. I have to say, that addicted as I was, I knew every detail. I knew the actors, the director everything. And I don't know why, I was so glad that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were the "ones". Cause ok, Robert is HOT and Kristen is NORMAL. They were exactly like I imagined them. So I watched the movie. That was it. My addiction past all the levels. Of course, the movie was not as good as the books, BUT it was perfect. For the first time, I liked both of them. Book/Movie. I started to be addicted with Robert Pattinson. (still am). I've been follow him everywhere (internet of course). I started for the first time, to "like" a celebrity even if I didn't knew him. He dragged my attention.
Why am i saying all those things? Duh, I don't know...
