A casual fan he is not. It must be ingrained somewhere in his DNA that he cannot merely pick up a copy of the latest “it” book or hit movie without losing his mind. He disregards his daily life with abandon as he throws himself head first into fictional worlds and tales of suspense and tween romance. On that faithful day back in October 2005 when Twilight was first released, he finally found something to replace his obsession with all things Harry Potter.
Authored by Stephenie Meyer, the Twilight series – including the books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn – have been translated into at least 38 different languages and sold 70 million copies worldwide. Additionally, the movie based on the first novel in the series grossed approximately $383,520,177 in worldwide box office receipt. Not that any of this matters to him though.
He follows People, Star, and US Weekly religiously just to get his latest fix of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. OMG, he can’t believe that they go to Starbucks just like the rest of us. He says it’s bananas that they walk in and out of buildings and down the street like regular people.
He likes to ask if you saw the latest Twilight related post on PerezHilton.com. He is fascinated that the buff one was walking around without a shirt on somewhere and he can’t believe that the two dating were reportedly seen out in public together. Plus, he hasn’t yet decided which side to take in the epic debate: Team Edward or Team Jacob.
If you’ve checked your inbox anytime lately, you already know that he wants to tell you about the latest Facebook quiz he took – he really thought he was an Edward Cullen but it turns out he was a Jacob Black all along.
Don’t worry if you think all he does is follow tabloids and internet blogs regarding Twilight. He’s pretty busy planning the 2010 TwiCon Conventions and writing his latest installment of fan fiction so at least he’s got that going for him.
