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.

I think I read twilight 3 times. New moon twice because I rushed through it see when Edward comes back. Eclipse -twice because it use to be my favorite, but now its my least favorite tied with breaking dawn. Breaking dawn- once and never read it fully again, just some parts.

I seen twilight movie too many to count, new moon-4 times and now I just watch fast forward edward to see his scenes only. Eclipse-twice and never fully again, just some parts. breaking dawn part 1 twice(bootleg, then dvd) and probably just to watch some parts that i liked, and breaking dawn part 2(once and probably never the whole movie. I will basically just watch fast forward edward for the last 4 movies, but i could watch twilight anyday. It's my favorite movie and book in the series.

I cried when I finished the books because there was no more Edward and I cried when I finished the movies because I felt the movies didn't represent Edward well and I would miss seeing him.

I love how emotional we can get at the end of a series, whether it's a book or movie. It just shows that we care and truly felt something for the series. :) But the good thing about it, is that we can always go back and re-watch and re-read the books and movies.
