Fan-Fic lover? What are your faves: Only fan fic I read was MOTU
Tell us something about you: I created this site after I was spread thin with my first site and I thought I needed a hub to host them all. I also love so many things, I thought why not just create a fan site and run with it. So we were born.

I was a fan of some many things growing up first was Menudo followed by Duran Duran and New Kids on the Block. I don't think a book or a movie captured me as much as the Twilight Saga books. I read the books obsessively and then saw the movies multiple times, crissed crossed the country to go to the conventions, which were hosted by Creation Entertainment  which now are home to the Vampire Diaries convention which still keep my wallet and all my fandom needs met.
I was born in NYC, moved to Florida when I was kid. I travel all over the place, but NYC will always be home. 
I am and always will be grateful for the girl at Barnes & Noble for handing me Twilight to start with. Without her encouragement, I would not be a blogger, traveling and have so many friends that are like family now due to the books, the movies and the conventions. Stephenie Meyer will always be MY Queen for without her the books and this fandom and so many friendships would not exist today.

How I became a fan of books: I have always loved books! Everything about them. The escapism and pure enjoyment of being in another place for a while.

Location: near Toronto, Ontario (Canada)
Position at FANdemonium Network: sometimes blogger about fanfiction 
How I became a fan of Fanfiction: After I finished reading all the Twilight books (and the unfinished, unpublished 'Midnight Sun'), I needed more. I started out reading EPOV's of Stephenie Meyer's books and stories that continued from where the saga left off, but I still needed more. I sought out recommendations of where to start from friends on Twitter and that's when I fell into the proverbial rabbit hole and was never heard from again - unless it was to discuss what I was reading with other junkies.

Tell us something about you: All these things (*points up*), there's more. I just can't think on the spot!
I am apathetic towards most things in life, but when I love something, I really latch on and obsess. I love all things Asian (Japanese and Chinese mostly) and am told I'm really yellow on the inside. You could pay me in plates of mashed potatoes. I keep extremely erratic hours. I love the colour green. I spell like a Canadian and use parentheses ad nauseam. I'm chronologically an adult but mentally very much a "young adult". My quirks are what make me loveable.

Fan-Fic lover? What are your faves: I am!! It is such a guilty pleasure! Right now I am reading an AU Castle fic called, "The Nanny". In addition to reading I also have published my first piece of Castle fanfiction, entitled "Our Story: Through My Eyes".
Tell us something about you: Castle became a happy accident that I fell into headfirst! I was needing another story to fall in love with and Marlowe made it so stinking easy!! 

Twilight is my Forever as much as Castle is my Always. I am blessed to be part of an amazing group, mostly women, but they are the kindest, giving, most creative, fascinating people that I have met. I absolutely love making new friends, I love garlic cheese bread a little more than the next person.  I hoard memorabilia like no other. If someone gave it to me, it was important. I love buying and owning shoes, but I loathe actually having to wear them. I have a bucket list that I cross off something and add something to almost daily. Life is too short to have anything left undone. Tell people you love them, hug them, let them know how you feel, one day God will want them back. Compliment people. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses.

Position at FANdemonium Network: Music Monday column

How I became a fan of... Music: Well for as long as I can remember, I have been singing and wrote my 1st song, "love don't go away" at 12yrs old after my 1st heartbreak. Ever since then, it has been a part of my life. The thing with music is that it can say so much when you can't say anything at all. My brain is like one bigass jukebox. Random music playing all time. Even reading books or watching movies, I have a song/soundtrack that I have playing in my head that goes perfectly with whatever I am seeing. I hope you enjoy the music from my bigass brain jukebox.

Position at FANdemonium Network: Originals recapper/Blogger
How I became a fan of The Originals: I attended the very awesome Insurgence 4 unofficial Vampire Diaries convention 2 years ago here in the UK having never seen an episode of the show. Steven McQueen was one of the celeb guests and after a rather unusual photo opportunity with him where he pretended to kiss me and basically swept me off my feet I was a little enamoured. So after the convention I went home and mainlined the first 2 seasons in about 2 weeks so I was up to date. I discovered the Mikaelson siblings (okay, yes, mostly Klaus) and when they jumped ship for their own spin off I went to New Orleans with them!
