Well, all of you know I live in Indiana and of course of ALL people to compare Forks to Lawrence would be me! Even though Forks is on the Oylmpic Peninsula and Lawrence is just in the center of Indy. There still are some similarities.
Weather for instance. Just like Forks is covered in clouds and rain...so is Lawrence. Like today for instance.
When it rains, it pours
And, just like Forks, we are surrounded by woods and trees...and suburbs. Which goes to show that us going behind a dog park where a bunch of trees and a small lake surrounded around us for our 8th grade picnic wasn't an accident at ALL.
Plus, we have a Fort Harrison park, it's not like the Hoh forest but it's as close as we got to a forest at all.
Even though Forks has over 3,000 people and we have around *cough* 46,000. That's still low compared to Chicago, Indianapolis, and even Bloomington which is a college town. But, in our defense, a couple miles north of us is McCordsville and that's only around, what, 1,000?? So, we might not be the SMALLEST city in Indiana but we do have a close small city to us. (Like seriosuly small, it only took my dad ten minutes to drive all the way through and their downtown only consists of the police department...that's what you call a small town.)
And, our town and even Indianapolis has tons of small businesses like Forks. Little diners, boutiques, and so on. Do we have small business bookstores? Yes! Are they Native American based?? 70/30 chance they are not. But, Lawrence is not like Prot Angeles, so there, point served.
Lastly, (because I can't think of anymore) we may not be near the North Pacific Ocean or First Beach but we are close "enough" to Lake Michigan and that's basically our beach.
So, in my freak state our mind, Lawrence is kind of like Forks, maybe not by the forests, population, or atmosphere but to a degree where this is my little own Forks. So, for other TwiHards and Fanpires, every city in some way is like Forks...and if you can't think of anything of how it's like Forks...you may just have an Edward, Jacob, Angela, or Mike near by.
I know I do.
