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've re-read the books several times. The movies, though, with the exception of Breaking Dawn 1 (I saw this one 3 or 4 times when it came out in the theater), I've only seen them once. this happens to me with all the books I love that are being adapted into movies (it was the same with HP). I always like the book so much more that I don't want the movies to "substitute" the images I have on my head of the story, so I see them one time and then I try to forget about them. i'm weird, lol. Though I own the Dvds of each movie.

I think many people in this fandom (me included) had the same process when it comes to reading the books and the post-Twilight life: reading the books, loving them, re-reading them once, twice, etc., not having enough and searching the web for Twilight-related stuff, discovering fan-fiction, reading/writing vamp/canon fics with missing scenes or EPOVs, reading/writing AH fics.

I'm like that a lot too with a few book to movie fandoms that I'm part of. Or fandoms in general.
