About This Quiz

Everybody knows the story by now: How a devoted fan of the "Twilight" series wrote a work of fanfiction called Master of the Universe,using the characters of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, then rewrote and expanded it into Fifty Shades of Grey, making Bella and Edward into Anastasia and Christian. The result? A runaway bestseller, with two sequels to follow. 

Since "Fifty Shades" began its life as a "Twilight" fanfiction, you might ask yourself how there could be any substantial difference between Anastasia Steele, "Fifty's" protagonist, and Bella Swan, on whom she was modeled. But make no mistake, there are differences.  Anastasia Steele lives in cities, mostly Seattle. Bella Swan lives in Little Forks, Washington, and has no desire to move away from her quiet, lushly forested home. Bella also has a seemingly conventional life in the bedroom once married to Edward.  Ana, however, does sleep with Christian before wedlock and becomes increasingly adventurous. 

So, what about you? If you're interested in this quiz, we can guess you've read at least some of both series. Have you ever wondered which heroine you resemble most, in character and personality? We've got a quiz to help you find out. Please note: The quiz is a gauge of your personality traits, and isn't 100 percent modeled on the characterizations in the books. For example, in a question about how you like your coffee, we know that Anastasia preferred tea, and Bella didn't drink either one ... but we're not making the choices as narrow as "tea or nothing." 

With that understood, settle in and let's see if you belong in Forks or Seattle!
