Stop the presses: some mini letters to some Twilight people

Land of no cameras!

Dear Baton Rouge,

OMG stop the presses and hand me my heart meds because apparently there IS one person in Baton Rouge with a camera!!!!! I know this is shocking for you all too since no one’s seen an outsider since the town was established hundreds of years ago and so of course new fangeled technology like a camera must be frightening. But come here, I’ll hold you while we get over our surprise and shock and fear.

Sure it may be Jackson Rathbone with a fan near a See’s Candy Store but STILL it is SOMETHING! This gives me hope for your city and that maybe this little fan moment is a turning point. Maybe Jackson and his weird hat and Jasper-esque jacket (you are not on set Jacky!) broke down the walls for everyone to start snapping those shutters and maybe we’ll just be in a deluge of pictures till they leave… Or maybe I’m entranced by Jackson’s awkward facial expression in this picture and Vancouver and their paps will wipe the floor with your silly town.

xoxo,
Moon

PS I still love you Baton Rouge, but hire some girl scouts with cameras or out of work mall Santas to take some pictures.

Who’s ready for some premarrital counseling?!

Dear Kellan,

OK, SOMEONE call up Beyonce cause someone put a ring on it! Fess up Kellan, was it AnnaLynn? Was she tired of dodging in and out of that shady no-tell motel in Studio City or did you finally throw the ultimatum down: If she didn’t watch the entire McGee & Me series with you, it was done-zo, am I right?

No? It’s for a new film you’re in? Damn….
xoxo,
Moon

Dear Nikki and Kristen,

WAIT HOLD THE PHONE, someone grab my meds (again) are the fake lesbians back on?!!!!

You, Nikki Reed were quoted in something called Zink, talking about going to a party…
“I went with Kristen [Stewart, her Twilight co-star], who happens to be, like, my best friend now…”

Wait, squeeze me one second. Happens to be your best friend now? Operative word being “NOW.” Did we bury the hatchet ladies? Is this why the Fake Lesbian section in the LTT merch store mysteriously sold out? I gotta say I’m happy for you gals and for the fodder you HOPEFULLY will give us: sharing clothes, fights over ugly Nike’s, hand-in-hand jaunts through Vancouver, shopping trips where Taylor holds you purses while you’re in the dressing room! Or will it be smoothies and working out like you and Elizabeth Reaser in Vancouver during Eclipse filming, now? And this brings up another question, “What about Elizabeth?!” This is a bittersweet happiness. I am glad you two love birds are back together again.

xoxo,
Moon

As you can see there’s been some surprising news in the Twidom. What’s the best? A actual picture from Baton Rouge, Kellan with a ring or the FL’s back together again or whatever they are…

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    Whenever I read Baton Rouge my brain straight leaps to Moulin Rouge then to sequins and tassles then I think ‘The Condon’ and showtunes and jazz hands….then I fade to black.

    And was that Jackson in the fan photo?! He looked odd, like ‘Crap, now Rob will know what happened to his real PCA outfit.’

    OT
    Is it #Normal that I’m going to be in the Mesa, AZ area (Phoenix suburb) next week and I’ve entertained thinking up excuses to go to Target to hang out inn the book section. “Come on kids, Mommy needs to run to Target.”

    I’m also kicking myself for not buying an LTT Tote to increase my chances of one of a possible LTTer spotting me in my travels. (I’ll be in TX this weekend) There’s only so many times I can wear my LTT shirt.

    LTTers keep an eye out. I’m venturing out of my state.

        Oh I know, I can wear my LTT “That’s Normal” shirt proudly. I do. (Even though my pink “That’s Normal” shirt accidentally got mixed in with a load that had bleach in it and now, it’s a weird pink color.)

        I just wish I would have purchased a Tote…. I think Mr TJE would protest if I threw on my LTT shirt EVERY DAY of the trip. ;)

        Miss you too hon. I hope you’re doing well.

          Maybe you can get a wolfpack tattoo somewhere… Or sharpie LTT on your hand discreetly (hm, I don’t think that can be discreet)

      Nothing bad can ever happen to a woman who wears an LTT shirt/bag/necklace. Charmed life! But a lot of good stuff could potentially happen if you got spotted by the right person! :-)

      We should start a Europe division and get together to wear our shirts. And make up a team song. (Stop shuddering. I hear you.)

      • Anonymous

        Bahahaha! Team Song. OMG! hahaha

        I will be packing my LTT shirt along with me. I just REALLY hope that I’m so lucky as to cross paths with the right person the day I wear it. *fingers crossed*

        I’m still holding my breath for a secret handshake. maybe do that ear pull thing like Natalie portman in Garden State?

          Yes–maybe we could use LTT or even the simple N in sign language.

    • Anonymous

      I was out in Phoenix (all the way out in Goodyear) in December and found myself wondering if there were any LTT-ers as I went about my days. I sorta wished I had a Twitter so I could send out an alert that I was going to be at the REI in Tempe for a while. I’m going with #Normal ;)

      • Anonymous

        I’ve semi-given up on the idea that there are other LTTers in MN to spot me. Going to other states gives me hope that maybe I just need to go to LTTers instead of wishing for them to come to me. ;)

          For serious, you need to check with the hubs about your driving route and schedule. If you are on I-10, maybe you should conveniently spend the night in El Paso or Las Cruce, NM. I will totes come and see you!!
          I don’t want to give out my email on here, but if you are a part of the forum, send me a note in there or I’ll look for you in there later today and send you my email address! :)

            I just sent TJE a message in the forum, but it occurred to me that she might not be able to access it if she is on the road. Sooooo I’m going to email you with my email address so you can pass it on to her, as it seems you have the ability to do so, per the comment below this one :)

            oops, I “liked” this when I meant to reply. hehe Already installed it in your car! Er, emailed her.

            and if it wouldn’t be too far out of the way on your roadtrip between TX, NM, and AZ, you can totally swing by upstate NY and we’ll go get some coffee together!!

      You’re aliiiive! I emailed you, young lady! Not seeing you on gchat… got me worried. Hm, now that I think about it, you’re out of town… Silly me being all needy and stuff. :(

    Wow, my lucky day–school closed with a blizzard (so I get a day off from work!) and a LTT! Hurray! So true about the lack of pics from Baton Rouge–what is up with those fans down there? Don’t they realize we are depending on them????? Thanks for the update on all things Twi.

      School is canceled for the kiddos here too, even though the snow just now started coming down. So, here I am with a list of things to do on the snow days *laughs* but why do that when there is LTT!

          Oh yes – the hubs just went to the store for provisions this morning and we’re all set to sit tight until it’s done. It’s a whopper, but the ski areas really need it!

          How are YOU?
          p.s. Chapters sixteen and seventeen of Wrenfield Hall up now. (Here’s the link you can’t find it again http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6369019/1/Wrenfield_Hall) More coming soon!

            YEAH can’t wait to read it!! Course I always have to start at the beginning but its SO good well worth it!! You are such a talented writer, maybe you can help me write my book! LOL! Wish your hubs had gotten a list from me before he went to the store, I am out of EVERYTHING!! Yes your right, the ski areas do really need it! Middle daughter works at one and they are suffering with the lack of snow..me NOT SO MUCH..I HATE IT..I am FREEZING!!

            SEVENTEEN IS UP TOO?! Squee! Long time no chat… I feel so out of the loop :( But, I will read tonight or tomorrow night. Mr. Seth wants to watch a soccer game tonight so we’re caught up and usually he’s at yoga, but he’s sick this week, so I have not a ton of free time in the evenings for Wrenfield reading

    Totally get the Girl Scout out there with some cameras! GS Cookies are on sale now so they have a perfect front. I don’t think they sell anything that tastes or could go for a “Hob Nob” but hey it is worth a shot!

    Ah, this is why I love the Twilight fandom and have been a part of it (granted, on the fringes of it) for quite some time.

    If K and N really did make up, that is a heart-wrenching, inspiring story of how friendship can overcome great obstacles. (Or, of friendships [re-]made when one’s boyfriend suddenly decides he has to go on a date with TomStu and you are left solo until you grab the first girl who walks by – NReed – for a “girls night out”…) If they’re not really back together, however, that magazine kind of sucks (journalistically speaking) for not labeling their articles with an actual date.

    Also, that picture makes me want to gag. Ugh. (the gross chain smoking one) The Kellan one does not. I am not usually into that blonde prettyboy chiseled perfect look (I prefer Alpacas) but he DOES look freaking awesome in a suit…

    Oh, and finally, I appreciate the normalness of the girl with Jackson. Usually these Twifans in pics with the cast look a little crazed. This girl is appropriately aged and appropriately cute.

    • Anonymous

      Agreed on all counts.

    • MariaCecilia

      Now I am all worried that I myself am totally inappropriate with regards to age and cuteness…I will have to go put on my “She’s normal” shirt for self assurance.

      • Anonymous

        we’re all worried for ourselves. you’re not alone. that’s why we’re all here. but really, it’s nothing to worry about unless you meet with the cast, take a picture with them, and then get said picture pasted all over the internet. If that happens, brace yourself for the consequences. Unless you’re UC, who pulled off the Superfan thing absolutely admirably and classily this summer. But I am afraid she is the exception to the general trend of whacky pictures of “mature” and crazed Twifans.

  • MariaCecilia

    Well, there must obviously be SOME reason why they are filming in Baton Rouge. I always assumed it’s because of the aliens.
    (*crickets*)

    You didn’t know? Why, since Roswell came on the map they moved the whole operation to BR instead, and that’s why all equipment that can take pictures mysteriously stops operating once you enter the area. They do it with green rays, people – BEWARE. It might also have psychological side effects, which may or may not explain Kellan’s sudden engagement, KStew and BFF reuniting and Jackson’s lopsided smile.

  • JustGoWithIt

    What is with young adults stars and their smoking? Do regular young adults even smoke still? And while not applicable to the Twilight cast *yet*, what is with celebrities and their drunk driving? You would think driving drunk was the coolest thing ever with how many of them seem to get caught doing it. If I was young and beautiful and rich the last thing I would want to do is suck on a cancer stick. It takes some of the shine off to think about how they must smell all the time, I try to imagine this is not true of Rob, but of course it must be.

    • TeamSeth

      Preach it, sister! I’m a young adult (I think, twenty-something still counts, right?) and I don’t smoke or drive drunk. Smoking increases your risk of everything and drunk drivers kill your friends and ruin lives. If you spent all that money on alcohol, spend a little more on a cab… like in that Heineken commercial.

      Anyway, I thought celebrities all had town cars?

    • Anonymous

      That’s a superbly good point. I don’t drink excessively, drive drunk, or smoke, either, despite the fact that I have grown up/lived in 2 of the areas with the most smokers in N. America. Actually, I find that of the few smokers I know my age (mid-20s), they are all seriously trying to quit (and in many cases succeeding), because they don’t want their kids or future kids to see them smoking (or have 2nd hand smoke around their kids, etc.)
      Hollywood seems to be a world of their own where normal rules and trends don’t apply.

      • I Am Amanda

        I’m 19, never-EVER- want to smoke, wouldn’t even think about drink driving. Although, smoking is still reeeally popular amongst my peers. Ugh. I don’t get it.

    [i]Enter for a chance to win a trip to meet Stephenie Meyer at the Twilight International Fan Event![/i]

    And US peeps need a passport? Could it be necessary because the event might take place in Vancouver – meaning there could be a chance to go on set & meet the cast too? Speculating wildly here….

    It’s sweet that Stephenie Meyer had so much fun leg-hitching with you that she wants to repeat the experience!

    Once again–I am more than willing to go to BR and stalk the stalkers for my “research.” Unfortunately, there appears to be no stalkers in BR and I would therefore, not be stalking stalkers, rather, I would be simply stalking. And that’s not normal. Is it? I shouldn’t do that, should I?

        I love how you cut to the chase. I really want someone to say that I should go down there b/c fans are camping out and at the end of each day the cast comes out to say hello to everyone. But then I would just be asking for lies. :(

      Hello folks, I live “close” enough to BR (2-ish hours drive) and will be headed there next week for a conference. I’ve been gently probing my friends to see if they’ve happened to spot anyone with the film crew, etc. One my friends’ office literally overlooks where they are filming so – trying to keep my crazy on the “down low” – I asked her to please take a picture so I can see too! Well, she totally saw through all that and called me out for being one of those Twihard girls / whatev… yeah / and sent me a shot. So I still have NO Idea where all the stalker pictures are. But here’s a link to her Twitpic of the shot she sent over. It was enough to make me and my fellow Twi-worker squeal, a little. http://twitpic.com/3rilnf Ok a lot but still.

      While I’m there next week I’ll be out and about in the general area. My conf is near the filming location. If I get anything, I promise to share! I’m on twitter @Beaumartian if you want to follow my ramblings. I’m mostly tweeting about travel & work, etc… but you know if I run into anyone, I’m liable to go all fangirlcrazy. But, “That’s normal.” And I need to get that shirt!

  • Stacey

    Thanks to the Giant Blizzard of 2011, I am so late in commenting. I just wanted to say HILARIOUS post! I <3 it!

    Hope everyone stuck in this wintery mess stayed warm and safe. I am now going to unwind from all the shoveling with a nice cup of something hot and caffeinated that or wine!

  • MyNieceIsAFanRIGHT

    I have to confess I’m a little afraid when Nikki comes up on LTT.

    She’s like the girl in High School you don’t mess with or her friends (or current now friends) because she can so kick your ass with just a look from across the room. You didn’t even say anything but she knows you were thinking about it. Just look how she spells her name . . . she struts on the edge.

    So Moon & UC, hold back on wearing any hoop earrings around her with all those events you girls crash, I mean attend. Even if you are far enough back to need to label your camera pics to show where Dean is standing guard, be safe. She’s the type to go total Nikita on you. No hoop earrings would make me feel better and no eye contact. I’m afraid for you, really.

  • TeamSeth

    Thinking of you Jayde! Be safe as you can, please!

  • ChillinWithCullens

    oh Hale yes! McGee & Me! I always thought the older sister was so cool and sophisticated, and that the girl who was his friend (not girlfriend, clearly, not a chance in Hale in this series) just kinda tried too hard.
