Twilight Junkie Tuesday Featuring....Kyla

Twilight Junkie Tuesday is baaaaccckkkkk! 
This week we are featuring Kyla........

What got you into Twilight? 
 I was out of work, depressed and lonely.....my mom had been trying to get me to read them for years...I started on a Thursday and finished the whole series by that Sunday!

Do your family and friends know how deep your twi-obsession goes (be specific about what your obsession is, how do you hide it, or how do you advertise it) 
 Ok, so umm, no, they don't really know HOW DEEP it goes but yes, they know that I am twi-sessed and that I'm mildly addicted to all things twilight....they do not know that I spend the amount of hours that I do on that obsession, however. I do not hide it and I do flaunt it (jewelry, t-shirts, magazines, etc)

Are you team edward, team jacob, team (fill in the blank)? Why, is it because of the character or the person that plays them in the movie? 
 I am Team Edward, 100%. At first I think it was all about Robert Pattinson, but then when I really started reading and getting involved in the series, it was truly about Edward Cullen....I mean, c'mon, the man is every girls dream.....sexy, unknowingly so, honest, loyal, a virgin, wealthy, intelligent, kind....the list goes on and on....but I think that the best feature about him is that he loves and worships Bella....he is 100% devoted to her in all ways. He'd stop at nothing to protect her, shelter her, adore her....for him there is no other and never will be.....REAL MEN do not love like that. He is my fictional dream man!!!! BUT I am in lust with all things RPatz.....

Which Twilight book is your favorite and why?
Eclipse is my fav of the series.....to me, it's the cuspe of things to come for B and E.....it's the solidification of their relationship before marriage....it's the compromise, the resolution with Victoria, the dissolution of Jake's hold on Bella......it's Edward in his finest hour defending Bella, protecting her and her finally, FINALLY, giving her heart to him 100% by agreeing to marry him....I think it mostly is the closeness that develops with them in the book from his return in NM and before the giant leap of marriage...plus, its the first book where I really started to see through Jake....he was inconsequential to me after NM.....sort of.....I mean I feel for him but there's NO WAY she'd pick him over Edward, ever.....Love the bedroom scenes the most in Eclipse and the tent scene is one of my top 5 fav scenes from all the series....

If you read fanfic and your willing to admit it which is your favorite story?
I could NEVER deny my obsession and love for ff:) Ok, my ultimate fav would have to be A Life Extraoridinary by LolaShoes, but here's my list of top 10:
2) Clipped Wings and Inked Armor/MoBs too
3) Master of the Universe
4) Emancipation Proclaimation
5) Wide Awake
6) The Sacrifical Lamb/The Lion and The Jackal
7) Art After 5/Counterpoint
8) High Anxiety
9) Just Wait
10 Falling in love in a Coffee Shop
My fav page on ffn has over 300 stories, some I haven't read yet but were recommended so I'm saving 'em for when I have time....

Which person would you most likely still be into if they were not involved in Twilight; explain why.
I would have to say RPatz, cuz I've had a crush on him for a while before I even got into the whole Twilight world. Loved him in HP and really thought he was quite lustful:)

If you ever met your favorite Twilight star how would you react? What would you do or say.
First, I would stay calm and NOT scream (yeah right) but I WOULD try to be respectful and just let them know how MUCH I appreciate their work, their contribution to the twilight world and that I think they are fabulous:):) Ass-kissing never hurts does it??? LOL.....I would definitely ask for either/or autograph/photograph

If you were to replace any person in Twilight who would you replace them with and why.
I would definitely replace Nikki Reed, she's never felt right, to me as Rosalie....not really sure who I'd replace her with but someone more suited for that role. She's just never really struck me as a Rosalie.....

How many times have you read the Twilight Saga? If you've read it multiple times, what makes you keep rereading? If you've only read it once, why haven't you reread it?????
I've read the whole saga at least 4 times from book 1 thru book 4, however, I have occasionally gone back over the past year and just read Eclipse, right before the movie came out....for example.
Reading the books is like coming home to my old friends/family. I get lost in the sense of them....it's like I discover something new each time I read them...they are never far away and always bring me comfort....I've been thinking lately it's time to pull out all 4 books and do another read through since it's been a while.

What is your most precious item in your Twilight collection and why? (share pics if possible)
It's my NEW MOON hoodie....it wasn't that expensive or anyting but it's my most fav thing that I have.....

What is the craziest Twilight related think you've done? (include pics if possible)
Well, all of it hasn't happened yet:( I'm getting a tattoo with something from each of the books......I've got them all mapped out, given to my tat artist and waiting for the funding to make them all happen:)
I have gotten 1 tattoo with the word "MINE" on my leg....for several reasons but my twilight related reason is that I LOVE LOVE LOVE when Edward says this about Bella, particularly in ALE....I dreamed about this tat, called my artist and she drew it exactly how it looked in  my dream....I'll have to take another pic and send it in.
I also started collecting cupcake stuff since Tattward in CW&IA loves cupcakes:)

What is your favorite song from the Twilight Saga and why?
Possibility by Lykke Li.....that song resonates sooooo much with the movie and with crap that has been going on in my life in the past 2 yrs.....it just rocks my soul.

Tell us your favorite quote from each book?
he he he, these will be my tatt's!
Twilight - You are my life now.
New Moon - I can fight the moon but I can't fight an eclipse
Eclipse - Everyday of Forever
Breaking Dawn - More than my own life

Has Twilight taken over your life? Explain.
 Yes!!!!!!!!! I'm always searching for Twi-news, Twi-fans, Twi-blogs, pics, stories, updates, ff stuff......it's the focus of my social life!!!!!!!!!!!! It's the focal point of my life.....besides my daughter!!!!!! I read ff about 7-8 hrs a day......I chat, google, read, etc twilight stuff. I search out Twi merchandise when shopping.....

Tell us anything else Twilighty about yourself that you would like to share.
I've turned my 2 1/2 yr old daughter into a twijunkie! SHe loves Edwrd but sways towards Jacob at times....If I ever have another child, their name will have something to do with the characters from the series, for sure....I collect all magazines related to anything twilight.....I'm obsessed in over my head!!!!!!! I'll have to send pics and stuff when I'm home later, I'm at work now:(

Thanks to Kyla for sharing with us!  I love the idea of getting a Twilighty tattoo......when you do it, please send pics!  We can't wait to see it.


  1. Where is the "mine" tattoo going? ;)
    Loved your answers.

  2. I've already gotten the MINE tattoo, it's horizontal down my right calf. Kyla

  3. I agree with your reasons for loving Edward, it really is all about Edward after all,his "other worldly" way he cherishes Bella, his ultimate devotion to her. And yeah, isn't it nice that these books bring you comfort and have the odd ability to make the real world brighter, nice. I'm going to add ALE next on my ff list, as soon as I get finally finish EP, which by the way is making me a crazy lady, it's so darn good! Nice meeting you Kyla.

  4. Kyla thank you for sharing with us!! I love your tatt ideas. Ever since reading CW/IA I have wanted to get one. I probably wouldn't really go through with it but Tattward really made the idea so intriguing.

  5. Great answers! I think your daughter and my three year old should have a play date. Twilight Tea Party?

    I envy how much FF time you get in a week! LOL Love what you said about team edward and rpatz!

    another fun one chickadees!
