I’m always in this Twilight, in the shadow of your heart

Dear LTTers,

We’ve spent the last few months sharing bits & pieces of our time with Stephenie Meyer with you, and we’ve finally come to the end. Our 4 hours with Stephenie FLEW by and before we knew it her assistant Meghan told us to ask our last questions. We scrambled- because we were first to go last. Do we end asking for the TRUTH behind the Robsten love story? Do we ask something deep & Twilosophical about Fred & Bree? Wait- we forgot to ask questions about her husband Nacho and if she told him that’s our pet name for him! Well, we decided to make our “one” question 2 questions and went for something a little fun and a little serious:

Call it Twilosophy call it breaking down our interview, one last time, but just eavesdrop on Moon & me yesterday as we discussed what interviewing & meeting Stephenie Meyer really meant to us!

Remembering

Leg Hitched Stephenie Meyer

Wait what? We DID this!?

Moon: I was showing my roomie the pics from meeting Stephenie the other day.. and I was like OH MY GOD WE MET STEPHENIE MEYER!!!! It still doesn’t seem real sometimes
UC:
I KNOW
Moon:
and how nice and welcoming she was
UC:
I mean… it feels less real now, I think, almost 3 months later. THREE months
Moon:
Right. It was all a dream- she would understand that!
UC:
I mean.. this summer was CRAZY for both of it- the whole summer was a dream. It was my “dream summer”- moving & sweating my ass off right
Moon:
I was also talking to someone about meeting her and I was like, “It was like the biggest thing on our blog goal list (besides being red carpet SUMMIT!)
UC:
I KNOW!!!
Moon:
Like where do we go from there?
UC:
I mean….. meeting Rob would be lame…. because he’s so afraid of people {he only loves Jella the cat these days}
Moon:
Oh god Jella, vom. What does an artist do once they’ve won the Grammy or met their inspiration?
UC:
I mean… I think other people have higher goals- there are always goals to reach…. except.. we run a Twilight blog and…we met the creator of Twilight
Moon:
I’ve seen Rob in person several times and he’d have a LOT to live up to. I have awesome hilarious cute friends. So he’d need to bring his a-game (which I doubt he would)
UC:
And we not only MET but basically HUNG OUT WITH Stephenie. You ate bacon next to her! While I got grossed out by bacon 2 seats down!! You can’t top that as Twilight bloggers
Moon:
And she used OUR words. She talked about OUR posts. She called the male blogger in the room a unicorn
WHERE DO YOU GO FROM THERE?
UC:
I still can’t believe I didn’t drop dead right there
Moon:
Well, besides on the red carpet, and a guest role as Volturi witnesses

Flo

Moon: Is it funny that Flo [Florence and the Machine] is playing and Steph gave us that cd? The part were Flo sings ‘I’m always in this Twilight’ makes me think of Stephanie!
UC:
I KNOW! ALWAYS!!!!!!! Awww! TWINS!
Moon:
cause she (and us by default) will always somehow be part of this thing
UC:
I bet Steph thinks of herself
Moon:
“I’m always in this Twilight, in the shadow of your heart” That’s sooo our whole Twilight experience for me


UC: Awwww! Yes!!!!! I got goosebumps, but I have my period so I’ll probably burst into tears in a second. Emo
Moon:
It’s been such a great ride it really has
UC:
SO great! And this was the pinnacle
Moon:
This sounds like the end, even though its not!!!!
UC:
I know- calm down people, we’re not through with you quite yet!

We get sappy after the jump!

Just you and Me

UC: That’s why I think I feel like needing to lay low
Moon:
No one else can say they have had the same ride as us- just you and me.
UC:
this summer was such a surreal experience….. meeting Stephenie…. and then right after all the shenanigans with the most LTTers in one place than we’ve ever had together
Moon:
right- it was an insane summer- eclipse con, meeting stephenie, jay leno, eclipse leg hitch 2010, moving, going to kenya,
UC:
I mean that party at your house- where there were .. what? 30-40-50? people at one point? There because we one day decided to make fun of lame people who made videos online. And those lame video makers exist because of Stephenie- who we MET!!! It’s just… crazy. And overwhelming. Even now. And yet- I feel weird even saying that…. because it sounds like we make Stephenie out to be a ‘god’ .. and I don’t think of her that way. I mean.. she is just like you or me… just in cowboy boots & a lot richer- she’s just a normal girl!
Moon:
Yeah, I don’t think of her that way, but I feel protective of her sometimes
UC:
Yes- I feel MUCH more protective of her now that I’ve met her
Moon:
Like last night someone was saying they read Twilight and who originally really liked it and then just said to someone else it was painful to get through. I was like EXCUSE ME
UC:
I KNOW…. I get so offended.. and I never used to…
Moon:
I didn’t really push her on it, but why cant we just like stuff, you know?
UC:
I mean.. I can still agree with certain things- certain deficiencies.. but….. she’s a PERSON- Stephenie is.
Moon:
It pisses me off. like shut up, ya know?
UC:
Right.. just like when The Font makes fun of my bad taste in TV. LET ME LIKE MY MINDLESS ROMANCE (holla vampire diaries back last night!!)
Moon: I feel like if you’re IN this you have some leniency, but not if you’re a straight outsider
UC:
yes… you’re right…… don’t hate just because it’s cool to hate
Moon:
I got really defensive against two total NERDS at a party like a month ago- they were ragging on everything Twilight after they found out I blogged about it and I was like HAVE YOU READ IT? HAVE YOU SEEN THE MOVIES? NO? thanks shut up now
UC:
You tell those Nerds!!!
Moon:
I was like, you can argue with millions of books sold and billions in movie revenue
UC:
Exactly!!!! It OBVIOUSLY struck a chord with SOMEONE, and it sucks that you’re on the outside
Moon:
I felt so dumb like I was justifying myself and Twilight to total losers but still
UC:
It’s fun to be a part of something SO many people connect with
Moon:
It is!! Makes me feel a little sorry for some people. And for us!! I mean we know WAY too much about this stuff- the in’s and the out’s
UC:
WAY too much
Moon:
We’ve talked to the author about her books. Like the INNER workings of her books
UC:
we know details about FRED!! :)
Moon:
I was talking to my roommate the other night and she didn’t know why the books were titled Twilight/nm/eclipse/bd, and she was asking if fans would know. And I was like OMG YES! Then I quoted Edward, and told her how the series used to be called “Forks” It just reminds me how not everyone knows this stuff
UC:
AT ALL. Honestly, if someone isn’t on Twitter a ton, they miss out- Even people who are more fans than most of our “real-life” friends. And isn’t that funny? Because so many of my formerly “online friends” have become “real life” friends… I don’t know how to differentiate anymore!! And I feel like some of my friends who weren’t on this ride with me don’t understand a part of me…
Moon: right not at all- sometimes people will ask me how I met someone and I have to think, and I’m like OH YEA- from our blog or through Twilight!!! It’s become so much more than just Twi or LTT/LTR
UC:
SO MUCH more. And I hope that we were able to express that enough to Stephenie in our sometimes confused thoughts….because that’s what it means to me. More than these great 4.5 books I read…… it was just…. the world she created that we ALL got wrapped up in
Moon:
If you’re reading, Steph, REREAD THAT LAST PART
UC:
Here.. I’ll re-write it and BOLD IT FOR YOU:

It was more than these great 4.5 books we read…… it was just…. the world you created that we ALL got wrapped up in!!

UC: We did write our “real” letter to Steph- so I think we told her
Moon:
and she even said as much in her meeting with us. She said when you have kids you have to give up part of yourself, and writing let her find a new part of herself or remember that she wasn’t “just a mom.” I think that was the part that affected me the most. It was FAVORITE thing she said!
UC:
Yes- I love how she said that….
Moon:
because I think that beyond escaping everyday life, Twilight gave a lot of people back a part of themselves or allowed them to find something about themselves they never knew existed- we’re both testaments to that
UC:
it really seemed to awaken something in so many people…. definitely in me
Moon:
I think we started this, besides thinking we were funny, because something was missing and this was our outlet.
UC:
And I think with the summer ending and news slowing and Breaking Dawn feeling SO FAR OFF… I’ve felt myself slipping back into where I was 2 years ago….. and it’s been hard- to remember to stay focused- not on Twilight.. but on life- on being present.. on dreaming…
Moon: People found friends; people found a way to be funny in written form; people found a new lease on life; encouragement; community
UC:
All because of a mom, home with her kids, who had a dream. It’s amazing!

What’s Next?

Moon: Isn’t it weird how we’ve read TONS of other books even after Twilight but haven’t felt affected in the same way? Haven’t felt the NEED to talk or write about it
UC:
not at ALL
Moon:
Like what IS IT about these books Stephanie wrote?
UC:
I’ve read some GREAT books too
Moon:
we’ve talked about it forever but have never been able to nail it down
UC:
Even Hunger Games….. while the fandom is huge & will get bigger with the movies, I don’t think it’ll be like the Twilight fandom & I don’t mean with Burger King Crowns (calling it- they’ll have them). I don’t know… I think it’s back to that Edward & Bella relationship…. Bella being “Every girl” or any of us…. and just the fantasy of it… Though there are lots of books like that. So why Twilight? I don’t know
Moon:
I think this only comes around one in a blue moon. It’s been lightening in a bottle
UC:
I don’t know if we’ll ever know
Moon:
We won’t I don’t think.
UC:
like…. will I be effected enough to devote my life to something like this ever again?
Moon:
right and write about it EVERY DAY?? People still ask me how we did/do it. I’m like I don’t know. we liked it and we COMMITTED- I think that was the huge thing. the commitment
UC: yep- once I put my mind to something I get it done- you’re the same way- so we did
Moon:
Committed to each other and then to the people who came. Well, I’ve NEVER committed myself like this. This has been a special thing. And hard work pays off, I guess it what I come away with from the interview- Stephenie persisted and got her book published- then we persisted and got to meet her!!!
UC:
So what’s NEXT!? Do we turn LTT into a made-for-TV movie?
Moon:
Would John Stamos be the main character? With special guest appearances by TGIF ABC actors from the 90s?

Big Daddy on Segway

Protector of Big Macs

UC: And Big Daddy as the bad ass cop
Moon:
of course- he’s a lead
UC:
Well, actually McDonald’s rent-a-cop…. He patrols the late night shift- guarding the drive through
Moon:
On a Segway with a cup holder and a special built-in fish-o-filet holder
UC:
Yep! He has a 128 oz Big Gulp filled with Coke.
And then Season 1 Season Finale- Rob Makes out with BOTH of us- dun dun DUNNNNN who will he choose!?
Moon:
ME
UC: ME
Moon: then YOU
then ME
then YOU
UC: then TOM
and we cry
Moon: CLIFF HANGER

Thank you to anyone & everyone who made us laugh, cry, scared, sob, smile or just really 2nd-hand embarrassed over the last 20 months & counting! We got to have this experience because of you!

Love,

UC & Moon

Because it’s been SUCH an EPIC 3 months, we’re doing a random give-away of CRAP from the BOX(es) of CRAP Stephenie sent us home with and then sent to my house. We’ll give away a Tshirt & a little cute Twilight tag Stephenie signed to one lucky random winner! Just comment today & we’ll pick someone this weekend!

  • Rachel B

    This makes me happy and smiley! I’m glad to be part of this with you guys and get to meet so many cool online an real life new friends!

  • tuesdaymidnight

    This. This letter is exactly why I don’t feel ashamed for liking Twilight. I read the books for an escape. Yet, somehow in this need for escape, I found myself in a world where I feel more like myself than I do anywhere else. It helped me reconnect with imagination.

    Thank you, UC & Moon. I know it sounds silly, but your blog helped me find a piece of myself I didn’t know I was missing.

    • imnoddin

      Amen!

    • http://twitter.com/JessicaLBarrett Jess

      I couldn’t have said it better myself!

      PS. Out of curiosity, what does everyone say when people ask how you met someone from here?
      Sometimes my friends are like, “how do you have random friends in all these places?” and I have no idea what to say! I generally say “through mutual friends” (those being UC and Moon). What about you guys?

  • fangbanger

    Aww… That was really sweet. I feel like it’s your going away party or something. And I didn’t even get a card, dammit. ;)

    STAMOS IN THE MOVIE! YES! Just yesterday, I was discussing the hawtness that is the former Uncle Jesse appearing on Glee this season. I shall swoon.

  • Goodgirl goneplaid

    Wow, I feel a slow clap coming on for that letter!
    Yes yes and yes I agree, it’s become part of my life in a way that other stuff previously hasn’t. I’ve never taken myself as someone who gets into a ‘thing’ before, so I cannot imagine ever doing so again. But Ltt/ltr is just different, and all the commenters and Robporn make it somewhere I’ll keeping coming (twss) back to, even if the posts are just once in a while!

    Thank you ladies!! xo

  • Pfluffy

    Your feelings are universal when it comes to everyone in the Twilight bubble. Despite the imperfections and sometimes because of them, we love the books, the movies, the characters, the actors and especially the creator, Stephenie Meyer. Never in my life have I been connected to something in such a consuming way, which has changed my life in mostly a positive way (sometimes I scare myself a little bit about how much I care though).

  • Obava

    Oh you bitches! You have me lit’rally crying like a fucking baby because you told Stephenie about Cyn. Thank you so much! Cyn, we love you!

    OK Imma go back and read the rest of the post when I’m done bawling.

    • Bea

      I was trying to explain about Cyn to my husband the other day when one of her comments made me laugh out loud. I failed. You guys did a great job though, so now I can just play him your clip!

    • Stacey

      The part about Cyn made me tear up! It was wonderful that you told Stephenie about her. Cyn is a wonderful lady!

    • Janetrigs

      Thumbs UP for calling them bitches!

  • Sally

    I love that she sat down with twibloggers, your site was the first one that I ever went to after I became an addict, and I still visit every day…… you also turned me on to fanfic and my life will never be the same, you two deserved to get the chance to hang out with our Steph…

  • kat

    God, that sounded like goodbye!!! Love you ladies and for providing an outlet where I could be a grown woman and love (read:obssess) Twilight at the same time.

  • Bea

    Awww! What a good letter, you guys. I feel like I could just hand it to anybody who mocks Twi and it would make them understand… or should. The clip of Stephenie makes me want to go to something creative and exciting… but the morning sickness while chasing an 11 month old is defeating me. You notice she hasn’t added any kids since she started writing! Not sure it’s possible while pregnant. Today’s big goal: getting the chocolate pudding out of the sofa!

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      I have been there (as have a bunch of other women here, I’m sure) – HANG IN THERE.

      Wish I could bring you a casserole and help you scrub out the chocolate pudding.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        NCN..if your in the mood for volunteering, I could use some help cleaning up red and silver glitter all over me and my dining room! :) Also I haven’t eaten anything that hasn’t come from the freezer section in 4 yrs..lol….
        casserole sounds yummy.. only kidding…just wanted to say Hi and how sweet you are to offer up your services and send you hugs!

        • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

          Well CYN!!! I would if you would get in touch with me and tell me where you are!! I wasn’t kidding about the brownie offer a few months back, but maybe you don’t remember… :)

          Email me at abbey_rice@hotmail.com and tell me where you are if you for real want a casserole. I am not kidding, I’m like the “Bring-A-Meal-To-The-Sick/Pregnant/Old/Bummed Out For Nonspecific Reasons” Lady.

          So many people helped me out when I had my four babies and when our oldest child was diagnosed with cancer when she was three (she’s five now and all is well) that I feel like I still have a greater debt to society and its general goodness to pay off.

          Plus I like to cook. :)

          I’m serious – if you want a casserole, email me!!

      • Bea

        Thanks for the virtual casserole :) I’ve been wondering lately why people bring food to people with newborns but not exhausted pregnant ladies…

        • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

          Seriously – I have a friend who just randomly stops by whenever I am pregnant (which has been a lot…four kids in four years) with homemade spaghetti sauce and stew, etc. It’s great!

    • MC

      Ahh Bea, yes been there too! & girlfriend I feel for you, & wish I could help. You need to have some Mommy time & take care of yourself.
      My kids are now 7 & 10, & I stayed home with them for 8 yrs. I can totally relate to SM when, “She said when you have kids you have to give up part of yourself, and writing let her find a new part of herself or remember that she wasn’t “just a mom.””
      I just went back to working & University 2 yrs ago to continue my studies, & will Graduate again this Fall. Our children are definitely worth all the time & effort, but it can be very trying sometimes! It will get better, trust me! Take good care!

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Your right it does get better..well I should say different..All four of my kids are grown now and as you all know my eldest (the only boy) is getting married in 15 days..(btw if I never see red glitter again it will be too soon!) so even though they are adults, you still worry the same if they don’t check in or if one of them is hurting you still want to take away their pain etc., There is no greater gift than being a Mom yes you do lose part of yourself along the way, but it is SO worth it when you look at them and realize that the parts you lost are present in them! xo

        • MC

          I just learned your whole story today Midnight_Cyn, & I would just like to say that you should be extremely proud of yourself for all that you have accomplished, & I feel honoured that you have shared your experience with me, as an LTT reader.

          Life definitely throws us many curveballs, as we pass through it….I am actually helping a good friend, Market his book he wrote about his 4 yr battle with prostate cancer. He, like you, is an inspiration & a survivor!

          All the Best: MC

          • Midnight_Cyn

            Thanks for the kind words MC..there are sooo many people here that inspire ME and talk about SUPPORT.. They continue to find me when I am lost and never complain when I ask the same questions over and over, help me fill in the blanks with NM, Eclipse etc., as I have not conquered those books yet… but I will!

            I hope your friend is doing well and in full recovery! Having had Breast Cancer myself in my 30’s I know what a challenge it can be. It is a fight worth winning! I wish him the very best and hope the book goes well!

          • TeamJacobEdward

            @Cyn, I am more and more in awe of you every day. Truly.

        • yertlesmom

          Are you the famous Cyn? You are awesome! My husband suffered a TBI before I met him and has had many long term health issues related to it come up along the way. He too–looks normal–but always feels like he can’t do what he used to. It really is an invisible disability and one that not enough people know about and understand. I’m proud to be a fellow Twihard with you–
          My favorite quote is by Winston Churchill, “If you are going through hell, keep going.” It has helped me through a lot of difficult times. Good luck to you!

          • Midnight_Cyn

            Proud to meet you! Please extend my best wishes to your husband! I so understand his situation and it is very hard to feel lost inside your own head. I hope he does well & sounds like he’s a lucky man having you in his life. God Bless!

        • TeamSeth

          “yes you do lose part of yourself along the way, but it is SO worth it when you look at them and realize that the parts you lost are present in them!”

          Cyn! That makes me think about rethinking not having kids.

  • Cara

    So sad that the Stephenie interview clips are over. I’ve enjoyed living vicariously through you, but am still insanely jealous. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

  • Alice_NaA

    “What does an artist do once they’ve won the Grammy or met their inspiration?”

    Compose a charity song? go to Africa and help poor children?

    wait, you guys already did that.

    • JellyBeanRainbow

      They record another even greater song and get more Grammys and hang out with their inspiration on a regular basis.

    • http://letterstotwilight.com unintendedchoice

      we are so amazing & giving. what with our charity songs & trips to Africa

      :)

      Okay trips to Africa is real… but charity song? I love you.

      • 3hboyshouse

        What about “We are the Rob”? I think that counts as your ‘charity song’. ;)

        • Alice

          Yes! I was referring to “we are the Rob”. What better cause then uniting this fandom! In your face Bob Geldof!

        • TeamSeth

          hehe that was my immediate thought! Next time it’s sung, Bono needs to be there.

  • LissyLoo

    Ohhhhh girlies…. That’s so sweet it made me teary! What an emotional rollercoaster it must have been for u these past 2 years! I don’t know how u girls have done it, while maintaining steady jobs, relationships, friendships etc! Hope u have got half as much out of it as everyone who dies to read ur stuff everyday does!
    Thanks for all the laughs girls!! (and now tears!)

  • ChillinWithCullens

    Awww you guys!! How can I have tears in my eyes from people I have never met? It’s like when I read LTT each day, you guys GET ME! (btw, Florence & The Machine = new fave band).

    Love what Stephanie said about losing yourself after having kids and then how inexpressible it is to find yourself again. SO true.

    Also, the image of Big Daddy on a Segway totally made my day!

  • http://www.twitter.com/ScienceGeek91 Rob’s slow mo’ strut

    Aw, you girls almost got me teary. *sniff* Stephenie created this wonderful world and I’m so glad I’m part of this amazing fandom. Sure, the outsiders label us as ‘fangirls’ and what-not, but who cares? I can’t deny the way Twilight made me feel. The tingles I got when Edward grazes her neck, their first meadow kiss and the Italy reunion – I can guarantee that no other book made me experience such heightened emotions. Maybe I have no explanation for the way the books made me feel but I’m content with that.

    And the part about Cyn made me tear up AGAIN! It really is overwhelming how the story impacted our lives and made it better. We can’t ever thank Stephenie enough for that. Not to mention the friends we made in this fandom. It really is difficult to differentiate between the online friends and RL friends.

  • Stacey

    I am literally misty eyed. Seriously…tears welling up. I have honestly met the most wonderful people here. (Including the two of you!) and of course, my “twin” SnowWhiteDrifted. For someone, who felt lost last March after the second baby, this community and the frienships I’ve made have been the best thing to happen to me in a long time. (okay, after having the kids)

    I loved the interview with Stephenie and what she said about finding herself after having her children. Her story is an amazing one. I might tease about the books, but I do love them. I must. I read each book four times since March. Before I get sappy again, I’m going to watch Vampire Diaries. Naughty Damon will distract me from crying into my cheerios. Adore you all!

    • Midnight_Cyn

      Shhhh…Don’t ever let Eddie know…but I am crushing on Damon too…those eyes..,.that smile…ohh damn hot flash.. :)

      • TeamSeth

        SQUEE! I just spent 20 minutes telling my unicorn the finale and premiere of VampDi and probably 10 of those minutes were expressing how beautiful Damon is. I’m so glad you’re not a Stefan girl ;)

        • Midnight_Cyn

          EWWW..Stefan?? I may be brain damaged, half blind, one armed and old but I am NOT desperate! LOL

        • snowwhitedrifted

          vampire Diaries fan, eh? Are you on twitter?
          follow me @snowwhitedriftd or @staceleo. We like 2 talk Salvatore

    • snowwhitedrifted

      ILY, Stace!!!!! My twin #equalopportunityvampirehoor

  • SarahG

    This letter was intense! Thanks for “breaking it down” and reminding us all why we need each other (especially when you have friends who have “left” you alone with your obsession because they are “so over” Twilight). You girls rock and I’m still jells that you go to meet the Meyer!

    Oh, and please pick me! I love to win random crap :)

  • Candy

    I just feel sorry for peeps that don’t “get twilight” they are sooo missing out. Their loss. Why do people want to hate just to hate? Did hating become cool? Just verifies I’m not . . . again.

  • P.S.

    You saved the best for last. That Stephanie clip was….wow. And talking about seeing Twilight everywhere you go, there is a little girl in the preschool sunday school class that I teach named Bella Lamb. I swear. So now I can’t even go to church without thinking about Twilight. There will never be another 4.5 books :) that will affect my life like Twilight has!

  • http://mainhoonemily.wordpress.com Emily who can’t think up a clever name

    Aww, I loved what you girls had to say at the end. I can’t believe the interview clips are already over! I was sure there’d be enough to last another year or two, at least. *sniff* And that song! It’s finally convinced me to go buy Florence and the Machine’s CD.

  • JellyBeanRainbow

    Stephenie Meyer created the world, but you two created this amazing community.
    I don’t even want to think about the world without your letters. There are other blogs we occasionally visit and we get to see the photos and read what happened, but this is the first and the last and the ultimate and the best stop to break everything down and to comment with like minded people.

    So stop talking about goodbyes, people, they’re not going anywhere. Don’t make me teary eyed!

  • GeminiGypsy

    Aw, well I discovered LTT a few months ago, and I was instantly hooked to your witty humor and the fact that I can connect to your beliefs about Twilight! I’m so glad that you guys have this blog- not many of my friends understand the place in my heart that I have for Twilight, and it’s nice to read about it here :)

    • Esteez

      I am with you GG. I didn’t find LTT until Stephenie’s website listed the blogsites selected for her interview/lunch. I selected of few to check out, laughed my ars off while reading a LTT post, and have been hooked every since. I love reading all the post and comments and feeling connected and uplifted. I am a closet Twifan. Only my family knows a little portion of my obsession. I don’t really care of people don’t get our love for the author and her great creation. It is a world like no other.

      The post today sounded like a good-bye. But it’s NOT, right?! It feels like when I finished the 4 books, and then felt empty so I read them again, and again. I know Twilight has been around for half a decade, but I didn’t discover it until a few years ago, and then didn’t read any of the books or see the movies until February 2010. And now I’ve been to Forks and La Push.

      Keep it up girls! We love what you’ve created, an extension of the best series ever. A place to unleash our obsession and laugh about it.

      Hey Cyn
      I’ve never heard your story before, but always seen your comments on here and thought you seemed like an awesome person. Now I’ve heard your story I think you’re an AMAZING person!
      I’ve just been diagnosed with an illness recently (nothing on what you’ve been through I’d say!) and have also been finding it really hard to cope and concentrate and read -when I have previously always been an avid reader. I have 4 books next to my bed (Water for Elephants AND Hunger Games series) that have sat there for months untouched! I keep reading the first few pages over and over but can’t get beyond it…. BUT you have inspired me to be a bit more persistent and a bit less of a sook- after all if you can do it with your illness, theres nothing stopping me!
      Thanks for the inspiration Cyn

    Dear Moon & UC:

    Wow, it must have been such a surreal experience to meet SM & spend that wonderful quality time with her! I am a huge SM fan & have loved every minute of these Interview posts.

    I became an addicted Twilight Saga fan in January of this year, when my 10 yr old daughter convinced me to read the books, & I only found LTT & LTR this spring, but I must say it has been a pleasure reading your daily blogs. I loved today’s post, as it gave me a little bit of everything that’s Moon & UC; a laugh, a cry, (of course some sarcastic honesty!), & a huge smile on my face, all the wonderful things I expect and enjoy from your LTT & LTR letters.

    I hope you ladies continue to honour your readers with your writing expertise, but if not I will never forget how much I have enjoyed my time here at LTT & LTR!

    Thanks: MC

  • Freya

    I admit it–I teared up.

    You girls made me think back to when I found LTT. How these crazy vampire books made such a impact on me, and sucked me right into the real and surreal world of Forks, and how these two funny, sarcastic, witty girls named UC and Moon would break it all down. I remember the thrill I would get when UC or Moon would respond to one of my comments, and then actually getting to chat with them (or “cyber” as Moon liked to call it). I remember how exciting it was to write my first guest post on this blog. To share in the thrill of the New Moon premiere long-distance and then the culmination of all things LTT, sharing Eclipse together with my Leghitchers.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the most important thing to come out of this whole Twilight thing has been my close friendships. My online friends are now my real-life friends. How important, and how special. Thank you, UC and Moon, from the bottom of my heart. I love you.

You all are a part of my life now and i feel lucky to call you friends :) Thanks again for letting me tag along for this ride!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dharv HeyyyBrother

    I think Twilight showed me that I’m actually a total girl. I know that sounds stupid, but I’ve always claimed to be a tomboy. I don’t like chick flicks and typical “girly” things, but there I was at 2am on a weeknight with butterflies in my stomach devouring a book about sparkling vampires. And I realized that I AM a girl, and that I do like girly things. So, thanks to Twilight, I’ve embraced that side of me… and I like it. I’m more open to feeling things if that makes sense.

    Also, had you told me a year and a half (two years?) ago that I would chat daily with a bunch of girls online and then MEET a bunch of them? I would’ve called bullshit. But here I am, having had the chance to spend quality time with some really amazing ladies (and accidentally run out on the bar tab like an asshole, oops), with plans to meet even more. Thanks to Twilight and LTT and Twitter, I’m never alone. Awwwww.

    Ok, that’s enough girly nonsense out of me. Love you guys long time.

    P.S. That pic of Big Daddy made me think “It’s an idiot on a scooter at night. It’s got to be GOB”

    • Jamie

      I totally get you there!
      I’m not into romance movies or (OHGODNO!) chick flicks. I’m a blood ‘n gore kinda gal. My mom about two years ago demanded I do some girl bonding and watch Sex and the City with about 8 of her friends. I cringed the whole way through and faked being exhausted to sneak away early.
      Twilight is the first romance chicky books/movies that I’ve ever been into. I feel kinda girly. I feel like I actually have female friends for once, which is very rare for me.

    • http://www.twitter.com/_lindelle Lindelle

      Yes THIS! I completely agree. Twi helped me be okay with my girly side. I work in a male-dominated field and I suppress the emotional side of myself so much I almost forget it exists. Now I’m more okay with it :)

      #4) The mysterious Blue Button appeared the other day with the last post. Don’t worry, it’s not like it’s been there for a long time. I actually thought it was a new toy/feature you and Moon added for us to play with and keep us entertained since we don’t get your witty posts daily anymore.

      • eatmyjorts

        Well I managed to read this huge smooch fest on friday about 2 seconds before leaving for the New Forest on Church Youth Camp….several age appropriate films & home made crispy cakes later I tried to post using my phone under cover of the thinnest quilt in the history of bedding, but it wouldn’t let me.

        So I missed saying how fantabulous these interviews have been & how much I loved hearing SM hearing about Cyn (awesome meets awesome) & how much I still love that little world of Forks/LaPush a year after first introducing them to my (then) swine flu addled brain. It’s been a nightmare of a year in RL, & I’ve appreciated having something/somewhere entertaining to hide in….

        I love you all from the bottom of my jorts. XXXX

    • MC

      You know UC, to continue with the sappy….you & Moon really have created an AMAZING community here at LTT. The love & support we can offer each other (no matter where we are on the world) is truly a special gift for all of us!

    • The Old One

      That song HAS TO be the LTT anthem! Yes!

  • obird

    Well, I myself am glad that you gave us the “Stephanie Meyer Chronicles” a little bit at a time. I don’t know how you processed all the genius at one time….my head would have exploded. Seriously.

    This summer was EPIC….LegHitch2010 was beyond amazing and I will never forget it. Finally being able to put faces with names was priceless. I love you both! :)

  • operarose

    *sigh* You guys are just too awesome. I know Janetrigs will fly in and say “I hate you” after I say this, but I will say it anyways: I love you. I had a crazy/amazing summer too (for different reasons than Twilight) but one thing I definitely, consistently looked forward to all summer were your updates on the interview. In a tiny way I feel like I was right there with you (okay not really, but I DO feel somehow a part of it!) Thank you for being such a formidable, “real” representation all of us “other” fans at that junket, then writing the best posts for us so we could live through the experience too. I am feeling sad that the posts are over, but wondering when your 2011 interview with Stephenie is slated? hmm? I mean, you have tons more to ask her…

    Also, don’t give up or burn out completely on LTT. You deserve a break but this blog is too witty/fun to read to close down shop. Don’t give up! You have lots to live for. There’s still so much to accomplish, like meeting Big Daddy. Or at least meeting some of the obscure vampires slated for 2011. I can sense more Solomon Trimble-esque actors just around the corner.

    And since I’m on this lovefest, I will also say Stephenie thank you again for meeting with these Twilight sites! You’re the best for doing that. You’re also the awesomest for writing Twilight. Ssshh…don’t tell anyone I know I said that. (Or that I said “awesomest”.) They think I read Tolstoy and obscure Spanish and Italian authors all day. (And know how to properly use adverbs.)

    We may jest about the Twilight world, but as UC and Moon wrote in today’s post, there’s something very unique and magical about this series that eludes so many other pieces of literature. To try to pinpoint one reason that could be, is I believe Stephenie wrote what she wanted to write rather than what she thought she should write. As a result of that, we got just a really lovely, enjoyable love story. Although all of the individual elements of the story are perplexing, she made it work. (Said in Tim Gunn voice.)

    • operarose

    This post is full of magicness y’all. Way more magical than the ship that shall not be named. I heart all of you hardcore. Seriously, I think I’m gonna cry. I too am still amazed at the impact that this series of books has had on my life. Yes, the best part of it and the most gratifying is the connection, and the bonds that have been formed, with other like-minded people, even if for some of us it’s only online. I have never laughed as much and as hard as I have in the time that I’ve visited this blog and a few others. It’s been epic, and for that I thank each and every one of you. Peace and love.

    Geez girls! Isn’t the fact that I sent my oldest off to her first day of kindergarten this morning AND I’m PMSing? You have to make me cry again this morning talking about Cyn with Stephenie and then that song and the whole post!? Man!

    And you’re right. I don’t know what it is exactly about Twilight that affected me so much that I literally couldn’t put the books down, loved it so much, obsessively thought about it, found out everything I could about it, laughed about it, got absolutely no work done when I read them, etc etc, the first time beside I couldn’t stop thinking about them… I mean I’ve never cared enough about a book to want to meet an author (and I am dying to meet Steph) or start following blogs and commenting and submitting posts. Ever. Maybe it’s like Stephenie said, I found me again. When I first read the series my littlest wasn’t even two. I’d been busy getting married and having babies “me”fell too the wayside. I never read anymore because I thought I didn’t have time, but with Twi, I made time for me again. And I tried writing and discovered I love it. Then when I got hurt in Jan, places like LTT kept me company while recovering and I’ve “met” (virtually met anyway) a lot of great people on LTT who are awesome and hilarious.

    Geez! I wasn’t expecting a sappy Friday. I hope my coffee tastes okay all salty…

  • caitlin

    Is it weird that I teared up a little while reading this? No, I don’t think so.

    I sooo relate to the idea that I feel like people who don’t get Twilight, don’t quite understand me as well as they could. Like, if I’m struggling to say something, I can usually think of a Twilight metaphor to make it clear, but if you don’t know Twilight you won’t get it. I mean I have a life outside of Twilight, but now that I have experienced this world, I feel like I found something I never knew I was missing. I literally get a physical reaction when I read the books ( and I don’t even mean something dirty here, just like a tightening in my stomach, an unexplainable urge to continue).

    I love this world and I’m not planning on giving it up. I don’t care what the haters think about it; I get my kicks here, and they can get theirs elsewhere.

    Have a great day all you people who GET me without even knowing me! Love ya!

    • imnoddin

      Since you all can express my feelings much better than I can, I’ll just keep saying “ME TOO”!

    You guys are awesome (even though I may be a little jealous that you met Stephanie). I may not have met people because of Twilight, but the books have definitely brought me closer to my sisters. I flew all the way out to NC to see Eclipse with my mom and sister, homemade t-shirts and all. It was awesome, and totally normal.

    Keep up the good work. Even though you won the Twilight Grammy, there is still a lot that you can achieve. When I think of something better than meeting Stephanie I will let you know (Rob’s personal assistant?).

  • ladyofthemeadow

    Aww, Steph, you made me happy too. For me, the books reminded me of when I was a teen in love with a gorgeous guy who loved me back, to my utter amazement. Since those teen days, I’ve had kids and many years have passed, and I forgot about “me” while I was necessarily devoting my energy and attention to my kids, my husband and my career. Thanks for bringing me back to me!!

    And UC and Moon, thanks for creating a place where I feel normal! Not too many RL friends “get” Twilight like I do, but when I come here, I see people who get it even more than me!!

    Checking LTT and LTR are on the top of my daily to-do list. RL has to wait til I take care of checking the latest post!!

    • yertlesmom

      SO SO TRUE, Ladyofthemeadow! I also felt like when I read Twilight I found a part of me I had forgotten about–hidden underneath family, way too much work, graduate school, and way too many obligations. It sounds so lame but the books made me happy in a way I hadn’t been in a long time. (And they still do when I reread them or watch the movies or read these sites.) Thanks everyone at LTT/LTR and all the people who comment–I feel like this is my virtual second home.

      • ladyofthemeadow

        You don’t sound lame to me… just totally normal ;-)

    Its letters like this that remind me that its ok to like Twilight. That because of these books many wonderful things have happened. That every time I bring up my opinion on a subject and am right, my lil sis replying “Well, you like Twilight” shouldn’t make me cower. It should make me say “Bitch! STFU please!”
    It is ok for me to be a very intelligent young women/mom and be so into this fandom.
    So, thank you. For, you know, all of this.

        It has taken me a while to really get semi-out of the closet. I had given some serious thought into making another Twitter account so I could follow Twi peeps without being found out. That’s Normal, right?
        But I finally decided I don’t care, and finally added my real Twitter account as my link on here. One step closer to being fully out!

  • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

    Here’s how I feel about people who make fun of Twilight: it’s like making fun of your mom. You and your siblings can make fun of your own mom because it is UNDERSTOOD that you love her – she just has some quirks that are fun to laugh about.

    But if anyone else makes fun of your mom – BACK THE HELL OFF. You don’t love her, you have no right.

    • MC

      You tell ‘em girlfriend!

    • TeamJacobEdward

      This! We love Twi and pick on it out of love. (Why else would one person have two sets of the books? …shut up, it’s not because I’m crazy, I swear.)

      It’s like one of my older sisters said to me, “growing up I could pick on you all I wanted, but I would have never let anyone else. You don’t mess with my little sister.”

      It’s like that.

    • blackgirltwihard

      Right! I hate when people pick and choose certain points and even go so far as to misconstrue them because they don’t know/understand the actual mythology. BD is in my top 3 ALL TIME fav books. And granted I am such a bandwagoner, I didn’t even start reading the series until last year and then I googled BD & I was like “Huh? What’s the problem?” I defended it once on the web and got so pissed.

  • Nelle

    I was going to comment anyway- not just for a chance to win some SM crap! I SO agree with your comments about these books and wondering why they have such an effect on us. The only thing I can think of to explain it is Edward’s intense devotion to Bella. All women would love to have a man adore her like that. But even that can’t explain it completely. I’ve read a ton of books for more years than a lot of you have been alive and nothing has come close to this. Thank you Stephenie for the romance and thanks UC and Moon for the fun!!

    • Esteez

      It’s the whole package, every character. But yes, of course Edward’s intense love and devotion and the effect he has on Bella.

    It’s true, what do you do after you win “the gold medal” so to speak?

    Maybe, since Steph is an LTT fan, in a rabid frenzy she will finish Midnight Sun for the sole purpose of giving you fresh Twilight material to work with. Maybe, jus’ sayin’

    • http://www.twitter.com/halfsh0t Jamie

      As much as I’d love (Oh wait! Not love! NOT LOVE) Midnight Sun to be finished, what I’ve been itching for since I read BD was a story about the old vampires and werewolves.

      At the end of BD, Carlisle tells the Volturi that the wolves they have teamed up with are not the same werewolves that almost wiped out the Vampires in china many many many years ago. I seriously want to know more about that for some reason. It’d be a wonderful story, although most likely completely cullenless…. which may not be a… bad thing? I hope I don’t have stuff thrown at me for that, but it’d be great to see what happened pre-Cullens.

      • operarose

        I wouldn’t be opposed to that! (Or would? This reverse psychology thing is really confusing me!)

      • TeamSeth

        Okay, Twichat time:
        I always read that part as the La Push wolves being not werewolves but rather shape shifters who happen to shift into wolves. BUT in Europe/China(?) there were actual real werewolves that bite people to make them change and etc. normal werewolfy stuff. So then Caius, who super hates werewolves (oh wait, Caius super hates everything. He’s such a hater. Kid needs one of those free hugs they give out in Times Square), is all “We gotta kill the wolves because I want to kill something other than Irina.” and Carlisle is all, “Dude, they’re not wolves! They’re bears shape shifters.” and Caius is like “What’s a shape shifter?” and Edward’s like, “An unnecessary cop out so we can all live happily ever after. Duh.” and Bella is like, “What? You can’t just, wha–no, you can’t just tell me NOW that he’s a shape shifter. Why would you lie to me?” and Edward is like, shrug “It never came up.” LIE BY OMISSION, ASSHOLE!

        So basically, if what you’re saying is the proper reading of the scene, I really need to know. Because I always thought Edward was super patronizing and ridiculous when he said that line about the shape shifters.

        Whew. I got all worked up there. Back to the sappy comments! Today is like getting to watch a feel good girly movie without actually watching one!

        • http://www.twitter.com/halfsh0t Jamie

          Yeah, I believe that Carlisle says that if the packs ancesters had run into some deer, they would have become that instead. I just would love to hear the back story of the other “real” werewolves.
          And Edward keeping that from Bella? def. douchebaggy, but he always only told Bella things on a need to know basis, so he could protect her and keep her in that little bubble of safety.
          Again, this whole scene is completely up to interpretation depending on who reads the book.

          The end of BD part one, where Bella has given birth, took me about two weeks to read. I got there, and was so disturbed that I put the book down for a week, then kept trying to re-read it again. It wasn’t the gore, or weird cesearian stuff that got to me. It was Edward, grabbing the baby, and stepping away from Bella while she is dying, and Jacob was fighting to keep her heart moving. For some reason, I interpreted that as Edward becoming so mesmerized that he had a baby, that he forgot about the love of his life, who was bleeding to death. And that one second it took for him to snap back, and hand the baby to Rose made me doubt his love for Bella and the stability of the relationship of this fictional couple.
          My little sister read the books right after me (she’s team Jacob, but also says she hates Twilight) and basically said I was on crack, and she didn’t interpret that scene that way at all!
          I guess many parts of these books can appear to everyone differently.

            Hm, that’s interesting. I always focused on that scene as Bella becoming a mom. She wants to see her kid and then they take her away from her and she gets really upset, but can’t do much about it because, well, she’s paralyzed and such things. I guess I really see that scene as mother-child love moment instead of creepy RenameMe situation. Like they all freak out when the kid bites her, but she sees it as touching. (which is weird they would freak out because they’re just going to turn her anyway, what does it matter if the kid or Edward does it?)

            I will have to reread now.

          @TS- LMAO!

          I love you… in a totally non-creepy, non-stalker way. Your comments are almost always complete gems.

          “LIE BY OMISSION, ASSHOLE!” <—- loves!! …Though I read it differently. I took it as; "I didn't correct the term the Quileutes used themselves because no one likes a know-it-all, or to be told who/what they are or aren't by someone else, much less an enemy. And it really was just a technicality and wasn't worth bringing up that there is a difference between werewolves and shape shifters until now when the misconstruesian (I think I just made that word up) would have gotten everyone killed."

            I guess I just felt like it was an unnecessary event. The only reason is happens is beacuse of Caius, and that whole part didn’t have to happen at all. “An unnecessary cop out” is how I’ve always seen it. Like, why do we need to know that? Anyway, I love BD and will move forward with my love despite that part. :)

            ps-you can love me in a creepy way. I don’t mind really.

    My favorite part is Stephenie using the word Unicorn. :)

    I really wish I could have been around more to share this wild ride with you, but I’m delighted to get to share even this much. It’s been wonderful watching and helping your blog (if that’s even the right word anymore) grow.
