How a Quileute Fan got Stephenie Meyer to tell Jacob Black's Birthday

Cute Story!

The Quest for Jacob Black’s Birthday
By Wolfie
Does it count as a “quest” if one only surfed the internet on occasion just to see if someone, anyone, managed to find out what Jake’s birth day was? Well, that’s what I’d been doing since early 2007 when I’d been captivated by the beautiful character that Stephenie Meyer created – Jacob Black. I’m sure everyone who ever became a Jacob fan did a search at least once to find out when he was born, but all we ever discovered was the year ‘1990’.
Anyway, over the years, I’d befriended many a Twilight fan and even people who were not necessarily Twilight fans but were somehow associated with it. Case in point, my friend who eventually became the vital person in helping me find out that very date, is not necessarily a die-hard fan, but she is a pseudo-fan by default as she is associated to the franchise.
This friend had called me up one day and asked me out to lunch, and as I hadn’t seen her in a while, I was eager to meet her, with my 7-month old son, Jacob, in tow (have I mentioned that I am Team Jacob?). We met at Pick-Up Stix in central Phoenix, and chatted away, and at one point (and I don’t know how this came up), I said, “If I could ask Stephenie Meyer one question… just one question, it would be ‘When is Jacob Black’s birthday?’”
My friend looked at me and smiled, and said, “I can ask Stephenie for you.”
I absently blinked a few times, and it all suddenly dawned on me (and I have no idea why I hadn’t asked that question sooner) that she went to the same church as Stephenie Meyer! Not only that, her son, Ki, is in the movie franchise playing Embry Call. I wanted to slap my forehead at that point, but my first reaction was to practically beg (it was not very becoming, come to think of it now *LOL*)
A few days later, she and I went out again and she told me that she’d asked Stephenie when Jacob’s birthday was. Needless to say I was ecstatic. She said that Stephenie told her it was January 15, but that she would have to check her notes. I wanted to post this information right away, but I realized that I had not asked her if Stephenie would be alright with QWP posting it in the new blog, so I called her to find out. She said Stephenie was not aware that a fan was actually asking this question, and at that point, it was becoming clear that it might not be a good idea to post it on the blog. Stephenie, after all, had gone through the Midnight Sun Disaster, and we didn’t want to post anything that she didn’t want out there. After consulting a few QWP Staff Members, who told me they didn’t think it would be a good idea, I called my friend and asked her if she could possibly ask Stephenie if it would be alright to share the information. This was yesterday, and at that time, believing that the birth date was January 15, I was anxious to tell all the Jacob fans the date, but it was more important to get Stephenie’s permission first, so we at QWP waited.
Today, while on the road, I received a call from my friend, and she made the correction. “It’s January 14!” I was excited to have the date, but I was also a little disappointed that the date came and went. I asked her if Stephenie said it was OK to post this information on QuileuteWolfPack.com. She said that Stephenie Meyer said it was alright to post. I was beyond excited at that point – I had to pull over.
I called Selene, my Beta, and told her the new date, and from over-excitement, completely forgot to tell her that we got Stephenie’s permission! We agreed to meet after work at 5pm for an impromptu birthday party. I rushed to Big Lots to buy a birthday card, and while perusing the card aisle, Anya Marina’s “Satellite Heart” began playing in the store! I kid you not. This was too good of a coincidence to make up! People were wondering why I was chuckling in front of the greeting card aisle when I wasn’t even reading a card.
Rushing to the supermarket after that, I bought a simple chocolate cake and some icing, and headed to Side Bar, where I was supposed to meet Selene. And there, for the first time, we celebrated Jacob’s 20th birthday, albeit late by a day. Were we the first fans to celebrate his birthday? That thought tickled us silly. The woman seated next to us asked us whose birthday it was. Selene, bless her heart, quickly responded, “Well, he’s not here and we missed his birthday, so we’re celebrating it for him today.” The woman thought we were “adorable” – not exactly the word usually used to describe two grown women, but at least she didn’t say “You’re insane”, which is exactly what my husband told me when I told him what Selene and I were up to. Eh. It’s not often that a fictional character can have this kind of affect on us.
After that short impromptu party, I returned home, excited to tell the Team Jacob community the great news. And we owe it all to Kiowa Gordon’s mom!
