"Hello. My name is Krysti and I am a fanfic-aholic!"
A few weeks ago, I was chillin' on Twitter, chattin' up a few tweeps and I started seeing all of these tweets about "fanfic". Fanfic? WTF is fanfic? I lurked around a little and found out that fanfics are stories written by fans using the Twi characters. (Ok, I'm a little slow...but I'm new to this fandom shit!)
To be totally honest, my first thought was..."Whatev, ya' losers! Somebody needs to get life! Why in the hell would you want to re-write Twilight?" (WAIT! HOLD ON! Don't send me hate mail yet....keep reading. This is going to be good!)
So, the more I lurked around, the more I started to realize how many tweeple were actually reading these fanfics. People were gushing over how freakin' awesome these things were and they were "dying" for "updates". Now I was really intrigued!
A couple days later I see a "fanfic" tweet from one of the Twitter gals I follow. I decided to casually ask her about it to try to get some more deets without committing to the idea just yet.
My Tweet: @Bostonsgirl1212 Hey I heard that some of the fanfics are pretty good. Thinking about reading one. Suggestions?
From @Bostongirl1212: @Krystih YES! Your first fanfic should be Wide Awake by Angstgoddess003! You will love it!
With much skepticism, anticipation and bated breath, my fanfic cherry was popped at 8:30pm that night. I was lost in fanfic ecstasy until 2:30am that morning. That was it...I WAS HOOKED! Over the next three days it was like a Twilight addiction relapse. I didn't want to do anything but read Wide Awake. I was on a full blown binger! I couldn't get enough of it.
Like all that wasn't enough...this time around there's SEX! I'm talking full on Edward Cullen, Bella Swan SEXUAL relations. The Eclipse "leg hitch" ain't got nuthin' on this shit! I'm talking blow jobs, finger strokin', nipple biting...and unicorns...OMG the unicorns! Trust! Just read it!
Over the next three days I laughed, cried, loved and ached through all 52 chapters. I just couldn't put it down. I was like a heroin addict that couldn't seem to keep the needle out of my arm. When I got to the last chapter I was so sad that it was going to be over, I almost didn't want to read it. But of course I did and it was bitter sweet closure. It was as if somehow I became a better Twi-fan because of it.
The realization came quickly that I had become a fanfic junkie! Within seconds of finishing that last sentence I was on Twitter searching for @Bostongirl1212. I needed something to fill the void. I ached for more of Edward and Bella's love, smut and angst. My hands were shaking and my nerves were jumpy. I needed a fix...a fanfic fix and I needed it bad.
Luckily, @Bostongirl1212 was twittering that night. I shot her a tweet begging for another fanfic! Just as a drug dealer gives his customers their fix, she obliged my need, sending me a link for Clipped Wings and Inked Armor by Hunterhunting. @Bostongirl1212 was now my own personal Edward smut dealer.
