I'm a housewife who obviously has too much time on her hands. I'd never heard of fan-fiction before, until I was on a website about Twilight and saw it mentioned there. Once I checked it out, however, I was hooked. I loved the concept of Twilight from the moment I picked up the first book, but I have to admit I was disappointed at how lacking in depth some of the characters were, especially Jasper. There was so much that could have been done with them that wasn't, and I was happy to see that many of the authors here didn't seem to have that same problem. In fact, if I'm being completely honest, some of the stories I've read on here are far better than the books were. I know, blasphemy, but it's the truth in my humble opinion.
In the series, I wasn't a big fan of Edward or Jacob, and always thought that Jasper would have been a much better match for Bella. She was so emotional, and as an empath, he would have complemented her very nicely. I was also very disappointed that with the past Jasper had that should have made him such a badass, he was portrayed as anything but. It never made sense to me. Anyway, as you can tell, I'm a big Jasper/Bella fan, and the wonderful stories with that pairing I've read on here have given me many hours of vicarious entertainment. It's because of them that I've worked up the courage to try my hand at a story of my own, though I admit it's rather intimidating to follow behind such authors as IdreamofEddy, JamesRamsey, VampishVixen, givemesomevamp, catonspeed, and heavyinfinity. If you haven't read any of their stories, you're missing out on some seriously good times.
My own story, Forever My Queen, is a Jasper/Bella pairing that started out as a dream followed by a 'What if?' that set my imagination on fire. I'm honored to be able to share my story with the lovely readers on this site in the hope that it affords you the same kind of entertainment that I've found in the stories here. If you do choose to give it a chance, please review and let me know what you like and/or dislike about it so that I can improve as a writer myself and make the story more enjoyable for everyone.
