So are you Team Edward or Team Jacob? If you can answer this question without hesitation, we're willing to bet you're well versed in the whole Twilight series. But just how well do you know the second installment of the Bella and Edward story? Find out where we'd rank you on the Twi-hard scale. (And if you haven't taken it already, challenge yourself with our Twilight Quiz.)
1.In the first chapter of New Moon, Bella has a dream that she's standing in a bright shaft of sunlight looking at someone. Who does she first see?
Answer: C) Bella sees the soft and withered face of her Grandma Marie, who has been dead for six years. If you said A or D, you're not totally off -- the dream soon reveals that she's looking at an aged version of herself in a mirror, who is then approached by the ageless Edward.
2.The first sequel Stephenie Meyer wrote to Twilight wasn't New Moon. What was it?
B) Breaking Dawn
C) Midnight Sun
D) Forever Dawn
Answer: D) This unpublished book, which she gave to her sister, grew out of one of the three 100-plus-page epilogues she wrote after finishing Twilight. (And in case you're wondering, Meyer has said that she doesn't plan to make Forever Dawn public.)
3.Which international version of New Moon has a wolf on the cover?
The Czech Republic
Answer: B) The Czech Republic
4.When distributing advanced reading copies of New Moon to fans, what did Meyer ask them to do?
Not hate Edward
Read it twice
Read it in a single sitting
Not hate Jacob
Answer: B) We'll let Meyer answer this one: "I asked people [to] read New Moon twice...and this is why: the first time through New Moon, I've found that readers are so anxious about the absence of Edward that they can't settle into the middle portion of the book. They skim and speed read and flip ahead until, at last, they find him again. However, at that point they've missed the main section of the novel almost completely. On a second reading, knowing that Edward will return to the story at the proper place and time, the reader can slow down and enjoy the wondrousness that is Jacob Black."
5.The epigraph at the beginning of New Moon comes from Romeo and Juliet, but it's from a different scene than Meyer first selected. What reason did she have for changing it?
It was too scary
It was too romantic
It was too depressing
It was too well known
Answer: B) She wanted a quote that was "more representative of danger and potential heartbreak."
6.Because she noticed fans ascribing "the most nefarious motives to Jacob Black," Meyer wrote an online version of the New Moon story as seen through Jacob's eyes. What is it called?
A) Full Moon
B) Being Jacob Black
D) Rising Moon
7.In Chapter 24, "Vote," Bella asks the Cullens to weigh in on whether she should join the family. Having been outvoted, a distressed Edward stalks into another room and breaks something with "an earsplitting crash." What was it?
Wall of windows
Glass coffee table
Crystal vase with roses
Answer: A) Again, we'll let Meyer answer this one: "Edward ripped into halves a sixty-inch plasma TV that the Cullens had shipped in from Korea because it's not available in the states yet. Emmett was a bit annoyed."
9.How soon after the premiere of Twilight was the New Moon sequel given a green light?
Answer: D) Summit announced it was moving forward with New Moon on November 22, 2008 -- five days after the November 17 premiere. (If you answered A, you were counting days after the release date.)
10.What type of flower is on the cover of the U.S. version of New Moon?
Double Early Tulip
Ruffled Parrot Tulip
Answer: C) Ruffled Parrot Tulip
Blind (0-2 correct) -- Hmmm, were you thinking of this 1930 movie?
Green Eyes (3-5 correct) -- Your pathetic lack of New Moon knowledge makes you a mere mortal.
Black Eyes (6-8 correct) -- It's clear you've partaken at New Moon fansites, but you are in need of further feeding.
Topaz Eyes (9-10 correct) -- Congratulations, honorary Cullen, you've clearly sated your New Moon thirst!
