Re-reading and re-watching/When the series was done, what kind of feeling did you have?

Breaking Dawn - reading
1. How many times have you re-read the books (whether it's one or two books or the series as a whole) and/or re-watched the movies?

I haven't watched it in a long time but I think I watched Twilight twice. And haven't re-read any of the books, especially since I finished reading Eclipse and BD earlier this year.

I'm thinking of re-reading Twilight (in the next few weeks or months) but not sure if I'll re-read the whole series though. As for the movies, I actually was going to re-watch BD1&2 that weekend when I first watched them but never did. Maybe sometime this week on my day off.

2. When the series was done, whether books or movies, what kind of feeling did you have?

When I finally finished the book series, I was actually pretty excited because I was really wanting to see BD1&2 and see a lot of things from the book portrayed on screen. BD is my favorite book.

After I finished watching BD2, yeah, it was a completely different feeling. lol It was pretty bittersweet. I actually cried at the end because it was all over. That was it. I don't really do that too often, when a movie series or tv show series is over, I don't really cry. I did when Alias the tv show was over. That was probably the last time before BD2. lol

I also had a feeling of, it's over but I want more. I wanted to read more and see more. But I couldn't do that with the books or movies because that's all that was written (w/the exception of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and Midnight Sun (but we know how that ended up) and that's all that was shot. So, that's why I'm devouring the guides/companions, fic and anything else I can get my hands on. lol And of course, re-reading and re-watching.

Uhm... okay, kind of embarrassed here, but if I can't tell you guys, who can I tell, right? I saw Twilight and BD1 6x each in theaters, I think I saw NM, Ec, and BD2 3 or 4x each. As for watching the movie on dvd... I've probably seen Twilight 20x, no joke. NM probably 7-10, Eclipse 2-3, BD1 3-5, and I haven't watched the BD2 movie yet (just the special features.)

Books, yeah, that's gonna be high too. I've probably read Twilight 5x, but I'm OBSESSED with the books on cd and I know I've listened to them an obscene amount of times. Probably a dozen or more. NM probably 2-3x, Eclipse 1-2 in its entirety (but I've read parts many times) and BD 3-5x. Again, I go for weeks just listening to the book on cd when I go to bed at night.

Um, yeah, I get emotionally tied up in stuff I like. So... I bawled at the end of the BD book and BD2 movie. I felt excited, happy, sad, satisfied, and always wanting MORE. That hasn't diminished. I still look SO forward to the graphic novel releases (omg next week!!!) and anything else that might come along. And at the end of the book (after losing my favorites in Harry Potter) I was so glad all my favorite characters were already dead and stayed that way, lol.

Nothing wrong in admitting how many times that you've watched a movie or read a book. I know there are a few movies that I've watched over and over - lots of times. :)

I'm very emotional when it comes to my fandoms, especially ones that I'm really, really into. lol
