Happy Vampiversary SVC

A year ago today we started this web site. Some of us knew each other, some of us had never met, but all of us loved Twilight. We had no plan -- we just wanted a space to talk about the books and be goofy.


Who would have guessed shinyvampireclub.com would receive an average of 500 hits per day?


Who would have guessed our promised monthly meetings would turn into weekly meetings, phone calls, presents to each other, and countless inside jokes?


Who would have thought we'd be throwing a Vampire-themed baby shower? Making Future Shiny Vampire Club Members onesies?


Ok, Alice probably could have predicted this. Me? No way. I'm so thankful and happy to have made such wonderful friends over a silly (and glorious) vampire series.

Happy Anniversary!

25 enjoyed the bouquet.:

Ryah said...

Yay!! Happy Vampiversary! I love you guys!

alison said...

happy vampiversary!
I blame this all on Erin ;)

Peacey said...

I just have one question: Where do I get one of those shirts?
Oh, duh, and Happy Vampiversary!

Ginger said...

Haha.. Happy Vampiversary!!!!!

I think I stumbled into this wonderful world of SVC some time back in November? December? I'm happy to be getting to know you lovely ladies! and maybe one of these days I'll bust out my snow suit and make the trek up to Minnesota! :)

P.S. I need one of those shirts too!

Erin said...

Kari, PERFECT post!!!

I will totally accept "blame" for this! :-) I can't say how thankful I am that I have you all as friends. It's hard to believe it's only been a year, because I feel like I've known you guys a lot longer than that. I love you, my lady-husbands!! Happy Vampiversary!

Ginger, just let us know when you're coming!!! That'd be so fun.

And sounds like we should print up more of those t-shirts!!

Coolio! I thought it had been running for longer then that... but still awsome!

Peacey said...

LOL, Erin, lady-husbands.

I thought I's share this for two reasons.

1) we're on the subject of anniverseries/birthdays

2) KS looks funny

Although it does kinda suck that her BDay is so close to this sites... :-(

♦Z~Z♦ said...

And also read some of the comments! XD they all love her!!

alison said...

ha. she is making a funny face. like they caught her by surprise or something.

Ginger said...

good God.. 1990?! I feel old! haha
and of course they all like her.. thats what brainwashed twilight freak fans do.. they like ANYONE who portrays their precious Bella!

Jes said...

Happy Anniversary!
I love all my lady-husbands and lady-hellrens ;)
What a glorious day!

Erin said...

Lady-hellrens!!!!

Ginger said...

Speaking of Lady-Hellrens.. I ordered book #2 from amazon, should be getting it in the mail some time soon!

alison said...

I haven't read those books yet. Ginger, what do you think of them? These ladies keep talking about them but I can't decide if maybe they are just crazy....

Ginger said...

To be honest, I wasn't that big of a fan of the first one... but Ryah & Kari kept telling me they got better as the series continued.. so I thought I'd give book #2 a try! I have nothing to read at the moment anyway.

Kari said...

Alison -- they are totally cheesy but get really good by the 3rd book.

Either way though, I am totally crazy.

heatheryruth said...

Happy Anniversary...if you are ordering more shirts....I want one too! I also read the J.R. Ward books... pretty good after the first one! Pretty much fluff and smut, but I am interested in what happens to John!

Yay for SVC! Looks like you ladies had a good time!! (Can I get one of the Future SVC shirts for my girls too?! :(

Erin said...

I am completely crazy. But I LOOOVE the books! The first was my least favorite. Kari, I finished the fourth (Butch) - when will you be done w/ Vishous?? ;-)

Kari said...

I have about 10 pages left -- will be done in about ten mins? You coming over tomorrow? You can steal it.

Jes, are you coming tomorrow? Can you bring me the last one?

V's story is really, really good.

Erin said...

YAYYYYY! We'll be there tomorrow. I'll bring along #3 and #4 to return to you, Jes.

Kari said...

T-shirts: We will def have to make more. I'll post details at a later date.

Future SVC onesies: Heather, I can email you the design if you want to buy some print transfers? I just ironed 'em on. Do you have Photoshop?

heatheryruth said...

Kari, That's cool! I make T shirts all the time and Photo editing apps and my own stock of the transfers!

I TOLD you the V story was good...but now ya know why I clarified that I liked the STORY not his "preferences" hehe!

Erin, nothing wrong with enjoying some vamp smut every once in awhile! hehe!

Corinne said...

I used to think that it was Edward that I didn't want to live without, and although I love Eddie, I love the SVC more! I am so glad to know you girls and also very happy that we have attracted such lovely regular posters to our "little" blog. You guys make this a great place to be!

Happy Vampiversary!

Happy Vampireversary!
Why is everyone spelling this new, made-up word differently?
If anyone bothered wondering, I have NOT just forgotten about the SVC for the last month, I was forced to give up *takes deep breath* reading, writing, blogging *cringe*, watching, or buying anything related to anything related to Twilight or SM. I managed to survive, now with a healthy hatred for Lent
Wow, I thought the SVC was older...
