The one where I call a stop to all the spoilers (and assume someone will listen)

Dear Breaking Dawn,

This is it. The time has come. I know you’ve been waiting for me to sit us all down to have a chat, and, well, here it is:

I demand a STOP to all the spoilers.

This is not a spoiler

Don’t get me wrong- I’m not one of those “I don’t want to know anything- not the new actors names nor whether or not Rob put on 10 pounds this time around” (he did) nor am I one of those “purists” who won’t even read Midnight Sun (crazies), but I also like the idea of of leaving a little something something to the imagination. Wasn’t life better when we were surprised? Wasn’t that why we all fell for Twilight? Because while we knew the story, we didn’t know much else- so we were surprised? Surprised how bad it was but how much we loved it despite that fact?

Neither is this

Isn’t it possible to promote Breaking Dawn without showing us EVERYTHING that will be in the movie? Granted, some of the spoilers are not Summit-approved (especially the ones from Breaking Dawn 2 I was sent last week- AY!) but STILL- why must people spoil? Do they really think I need to know exactly what the headboard-breaking looks like? I’m going to see the movie regardless of whether I saw that image or not. In fact, you showing me a picture of Edward looking half-alien, half-Solomon from the Bible makes me question if I should see it (Only question though. Of course I actually will.)

This is a spoiler. Just kidding

 

 

There has been chatter that we’re going to see a picture of the wedding dress before November. November is still a LONG ways off- of COURSE that picture is going to leak. But isn’t it possible that some of us don’t want to see it!? I want the first time I see the dress- whether it’s hideous or gorgeous- to be when I’m squeezing Moon’s hand in the theater. I want there to be SURPRISES in the Isle Esme love-making scenes. And because some loser stole Stephenie Meyer’s teaser copy & screen-capped the whole thing, I fear the few clips I’ve seen (and I really only saw a few) are EVERYTHING and while they’re pretty good…. I want MORE! The problem with spoilers is that they’re never enough. And we want more. And then even the REAL thing isn’t enough. We’re selfish & spoiler and I’m JUST SO DARN TIRED OF IT!

Now don’t go dark & silent from now until November. That would just be the WORST. But let’s cool it with the spoilers for a bit. Maybe release a few “Get to know this new actor no one cares about” featurettes or some Official photos of Alice Cullen actually looking stylish. You know what? I’m gonna let YOU decide what is & isn’t appropriate to share now that I’ve shared my thoughts. I think you’ve learned enough & I can trust you!*

Love,
UnintendedChoice

*I just mean today I’ll let you decide. Tomorrow I’ll be back to deciding for you

What do you think? Are you ready to leave a lil’ BD to the imagination? Are you joining me in calling an END to the spoilers!

    Agreed!

    Is it weird that I was sort of “meh” about leaked pictures- like, not cool but whatevs it happens- until I saw that the actors were upset about it? Like Summit can suck it if they are upset, obvs. But OH! The Holy Trinity? Now I haz a sad. #normal, yes?

    “Surprised how bad it was but how much we loved it despite that fact?”
    I am constantly surprised about this.

    • Rob’s slow mo’ strut

      “But OH! The Holy Trinity? Now I haz a sad. #normal, yes?”
      Soo normal. I felt really bad about seeing one particular video and a bucket load of those leaked pictures when Rob mentioned in one of the WFE press junket interviews that he was really upset about the whole thing. I think his exact words were, “To the good fans, find them (the hackers) and destroy them. And also find out who hacked my email address.”

      But that last line made me forget about my guilt and made me want to pinch his cheeks. So adorable. *sigh*

      • Anonymous

        yes, that was the one. and yes, *giggle* “destroy them”.

        I don’t get why you would hack his email–are you not a “fan”, which implies you feel some sort of affection for the guy? Meaning you would *not* want to make his life miserable or be a dick to him? Am I doing being a fan wrong? Oh no! Am I doing being a person wrong?!

        • Rob’s slow mo’ strut

          Well, to put it in Rob’s words, “You’re not a fan. You just want to be annoying.”  God, I loved that interview. But seriously, these people’s fan cards should be taken away. They’re so much worse than those who make all those creepy BD manips. Oh God, the one with Bella with blood running down her lips *shudder*

            In sillier news, TayLau is cute and funny. I think some of these are sports jokes, which do not compute in my brain, but still. Cute: http://gayfortaylorlautner.tumblr.com/post/7301473299/taylors-sketch-for-funny-or-die-gifs-coming

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Dennis Taysbert (in the James Earl Jones role) explaining the NFL litigation flow chart was the best part, IMO. Still giggling over that. Especially because that’s the only inside joke part of the whole skit that I understood. Almost feel like forwarding just that part to some of the attorneys here. Almost.

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Also, Taylor in those aviator shades. Hot.

            I think if he’d worn those aviator shades during every scene in every Twilight movie, he might have given Edward some actual competition. Bella would not have been able to resist. Though I guess he’d have to find a special extra-large pair to wear when he’s in wolf form.

          • Anonymous

            I think the stretchy rubber bit that he’d have to use to hold his glasses on when he fursploded would take away from the look.

          • natteringyeahrobber

            I disagree. I think it would send an intimidating message to the vampires that he’s not like the other wolves. He’s a future pack leader who isn’t afraid to properly accessorize. Why should vampires get all the cool accessories? Maybe he can start a whole line of wolf shades, with special bad-ass sterling silver fur-clips to keep the shades in place.

          • TeamSeth

            I support this… though I’m not sure what about Alice’s accessories is cool.

          • Rob’s slow mo’ strut

            Even though I have no idea about American football (in this part of the world football is played by Messi and Kaka) and even lesser idea about the players, it was fun seeing Taylor in that skit. 

            Um, I’m all for Team Edward and I lust over Rob like it’s no one’s business, but doesn’t Taylor look older (and *cough* better)? And did I sport some scruff on his chin? Hubba hubba ;)

            Confession: At the end when he said “Dad?” I half expected Big Daddy to make a cameo :)

            1. Yeah, the older Tay gets, the more lustable he is. Still too clean cut for my tastes, but good eye candy.

          Yeah, apparently. And he says it gets hacked all the time. Maybe he should use change his password from Heineken to something less obvious.

          I know, I was shocked too. But he isn’t as technologically challenged as I thought. He owns an iPhone and a Mac, so that’s something :)

    So…..I haven’t read Midnight Sun.  Call me a purist or a crazy, but I just don’t want to get blue balled with a half finished story.  Not that Stephenie should ever finish that suckfest.  Nope.  Not at all.

    • operarose

      I read it but regretted reading it for the same reason – it was a drag when it abruptly ended. It’s not a bad idea to avoid it altogether. 

      Not that anyone would ever read it anyways, if it were finished…

    • MariaCecilia

      Purist! No, I know what you mean..and the withdrawal reaction from reading Midnight Sun is what drove me to reading FF, and then pining after some FF that never got finished has driven me to writing my own FF. Now I can chastise myself over my morning tea: “You lazy so-and-so, hurry up and get the next instalment of MM ready for me! Now!!”

    • TeamSeth

      I read Midnight Sun before I read New Moon.  So… it was just fine for me.  At that point I just needed access.

        Or maybe not so stupid iPhone. Maybe iPhone knows Twilight fans all too well. Maybe your iPhone has picked up on Summit marketing and the Twilight mind-meld. Smarter than my Blackberry, which seems to have some anti-Twilight agenda going (it won’t even load LTT like, ever, plus it won’t let me upload CW photos to Twitter).

        • ladyofthemeadow

          Ah, the BlackBerry and LTT/LTR. It’s slow. Only a dead snail is slower. Is it just mine?

          I can read both sites.

          In LTR the comments are in purely chronological order; replies are not attached to the original post, and I can’t reply to a specific message, I can just start a new one.

          LTT on my BB is the reverse: I can read the comments and replies are nested underneath, but I can’t post. At All. Argh.

          My relationship with Rob is just like the BB/LTR/LTT relationship: it’s sometimes frustrating and totally unrequited!

          • natteringyeahrobber

            LTR will load if there are no gifs or videos (yesterday’s would not load on my BB). LTT will load, but will not load comments/allow me to comment. The only app that seems to work well on BB is Twitter. Sadly, I can’t ask my IT department to fix the LTT/LTR issues; that would probably raise some eyebrows since they are paying for my BB access (I’m already on LTT/LTR enough during the work day as is – it would probably be in poor form for me to ask them to make sure I can access LTT/LTR while on my bus). Sigh…if only there was a unicorn in IT….

          • ladyofthemeadow

            One of my recurring nightmares is to have my computer or BB crash and have to go into the IT hospital for viewing by the IT boys, before I can erase the browser history.  Hey, it happened to a friend at work… under the influence of a bad sister, she was searching on her work computer for, um, intimate marital items online, when her computer crashed. Goodness knows what the IT boys at work saw.

            I have a BB Torch and it seems to work better than what you’ve described about yours. Can yours have an series of unfortunate events, and need to be replaced?! After deleting browser history.

          • natteringyeahrobber

            That might happen soon. It’s some old-ass refurbished phone. Buggy, slow and…free. I will probably wait a few more months (only had it a few months) before accidentally tossing it it front of a BART train (deleting browser history and Twitter app beforehand, of course).

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Actually, on second thought, not tossing it in front of a train. BART derails all the time for nearly any reason. Maybe I’ll just give it to my 3 year old for a few hours. He’s good at ruining anything that requires a rechargeable battery.

    Hear hear! I don’t follow links very often, only if I think it’s something I don’t mind spoiling a bit. My biggest complaint about Twilight was that I saw just about the whole film before the movie came out. The disappointment came when I saw the movie and realized that it still didn’t have that “finished” feel and they didn’t fix any of the stuff I hoped/assumed they would fix. It felt like I was watching a dress rehearsal. I don’t want my preconcieved notions getting in the way ofmy enjoyment of BD. I prefer to only go in with my knowledge of the book this time.

    Great post!

    “Because while we knew the story, we didn’t know much else-“

    I know this isn’t your point, but I feel like I knew a lot more back then. That Twilight has ruined me.  Sent me down this supernatural spiral that has enabled me to give up 2.5 years of pursuing learning and development of my mind. I feel that I was much more in touch with the world back in 2008. That I could point to Omen on a map and I knew who the president of France was. Now I don’t.  I don’t know any of that.  I don’t even know what the political lines are in the middle east anymore (which I suppose is fair, because I’m not sure anyone really knows for certain…even the people drawing them) <—and that, that right there makes me run the "You're about to cross a line." "Then don't draw one!" exchange in my head. 

    Twilight has ruined me.

    Sure, it's led me to avenues I would not have pursued otherwise (like developing writing networks on Twitter to help promote and publish my book–LTT is why I got on twitter) and to people I would not have otherwise met (you guys), and to experiences I would've never had (staying with FrightenedFlips in Cape Town and watching Eclipse at midnight with the locals).  But, I feel like I'm clawing at the edges of a deep well, trying to climb out. Trying to get back to the realm of learning and pushing my mind. To growing and seeking out challenges.  Wishing I hadn't become so dull.

    And I've been trying! I read Middlesex (great book!), I started a writing group (that fell apart), I attempted to read Tinkers (which won the Pulitzer prize = biggest yawnfest Iowa writers program dribble ever. Sorry, Mr. Harding), I attempted to start back up on learning French (major fail), I wrote 3 short stories and got a publisher for my book (ok, this was good–some good has happened unrelated to twilight!). 

    Maybe it's just the endless job applications from 2009 or planning this stupid wedding, but I'm just so damn lazy now.  I just don't even care anymore.  Twilight is just easier to pursue for entertainment… and all the "spin-offs" of it.  Watching the softcore porn that is True Blood is my life now.  And Doctor Who*. And Vampire Diaries.

    Why?!  Why can’t I just read current affairs and not send Michael Sheen drunk tweets telling him he should’ve played Russell Edgington? I shouldn’t even know who Michael Sheen is–let alone that he’s Welsh, was born in ’69, has a daughter, and is likely dating Rachel McAdams. I should be learning violin, reading foreign policy, practicing my Spanish, developing my CSS, XHTML, and JQuery skills, volunteering at the temporary shelter, fighting for the healthcare bills since they directly affect me. But I’m not. I’m not doing anything but reading about Twilight and making a Men in Plaid calender.

    I feel like my escape has become my reality, to an extent. For example, I’m at work writing this.  Why am I not working? I have things to be doing at work, but I’m not doing them. I’m bitching to you guys about my pathetic state of being.  It’s wholly unfair and I apologize (if you’re still reading).  I guess I’ll end it there, feeling ashamed and debating to hit “Post as…” or not.

    Sorry for my third life crisis. Maybe I’ll buy a big motorcycle to solve my issues ;)  (which of course reminds me of that David Slade look alike… “I’ll be whoever you want me to be, baby.”)

        Oh, and on that note… I am researching the Lake Mead bit today (for the Who post on TalkSupe) AND last night, my drunk tweeting yielded a response from DrWhoOnline… it went like this:
        Drunk Me (at 1am PDT): Sebastian, are you guys still doing the vortextra classics? Any updates from your island?
        DrWhoOnline (at 9:05am London time): Should be up this autumn. Don’t worry you will most definitely be a part of it.

        UM, SQUEE!

        (and yes, his name is Sebastian)

        Also, sober tweeting four days ago yielded a response from Murray Gold. Bless. So, maybe my drunk response will yield another response?

        ps-“Bless” is possibly the best thing to come out of TB (other than, well, Alexander Skarsgård)… along with that line, “You’re like a cool breeze on a hot summer day!” “Quit!”  (hehe)

      I’m sure we all feel for your mid work day agnst. I usually wait until about 2:00 to start feeling that way.
      I was planning to combine my Twilight fixation with the fact that I have to brush up on my French (more like re-learn), and read Fascination on my Kindle with a French dictionary, but it isn’t available! I could get it in paperback and look up words with a dictionary beside it, but that would be clunky and inconvenient and I would so rather do it on the Kindle with the automatic word look up function. A Twilight activity that wouldn’t be embarrassing to do in public, can you imagine?

      • TeamSeth

        It is hard to imagine…  Though once I read Angels and Demons in Spanish and the translation was horrendous. I think it’s better to read things in original language… the diction flow is always better. That said, I tried reading Gasolina and just could not get into it.

          I’m sure that is true in most cases. I would still like to do it though. I am having a really hard time finding anything suitable. There is no way I am getting through classic french lit, which is what is largely available. I even sampled Bel Ami just to give it a shot, but my own translating with the dictionary made no sense at all, and from what I can gather from the reviews, the in device dictionary won’t be very good for something like that.

            I think there is a lack of foreign language books available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble period, at least on the US sites. I read Fascination after a trip to France. The best part is the footnotes explaining American culture, such as when Bella goes to Forks High for the first time and notes the lack of metal detectors. Insert footnote that reads something like “machines such as these have become common in American high schools due to increased violence.” It was entertaining, though, and kind of made me fall back in love with the series.

      Don’t worry TeamSeth, just remember that you ARE normal. We are here, and we know that Twilight does NOT equal life. I don’t blame you for getting distracted at work. You will find something else that is interesting and exciting and non-Twi related. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now, no wonder you are feeling stressed! It will happen. You are sending out feelers toward that non-Twi stuff, so you won’t get trapped in an infinite Twi-bubble. I have faith in you!

      Dear TeamSeth! It isn’t just you. Twilight is the recipe against a life crisis, and simultaneously the cause of one. (Hm, this reminds me of Bella’s and Edward’s relationship, but I digress.) Twilight saved me from a blue funk and gave me back energy, fun and the zest for life – I felt that my life was over and found that it was not.

      On the other hand, I agree that even though I have acheived a lot of stuff since Twilight pulled me up by the bootstraps(studying for another Major, taking up my French again, getting involved with music again, improving my relationships and my love life, making new friends) it is also true that a lot of energy goes into Twi-related stuff that could arguably be used to save the world instead. It IS a type of addiction, to be sure, which brings the new life crises.

      But, hey, if I were still in a blue funk I would be pretty useless for promoting world peace too, so I guess on the whole this is all for the best! And I have no problem keeping up with world events as long as I keep reading the morning papers which I do religiously for breakfast every day, so that is a cure I would recommend!

      (By the way, the president of France is Sarkozy, and he is married to a model/actess/singer named Bruni and they are having a baby, but if you’re on Twitter you probably got that part..?)

      I don’t know you, TeamSeth, but you make my day everytime I read your reactions here on LTT, so thank you for being a part of the Twi-universe that turned my life crisis around!

        I would love to do a comprehensive study on how many people Twilight has “saved”, in one way or another. I have no idea what it is- other books certainly talk about love, and have that sort of First Crush descriptions- but somehow the series is able to tap into something, like some sort of endorphin gland that is activated by marble vampires and angst.  I am honestly not sure what my life would be like without it- I was in some Srs RL Shiznit and then…*shrug* Stephenie Meyer fixed it.

        Also, TS- you could consider listening every week to my sweary podcast! I talk about politics- and swearing! Then you could be an informed addict like me. xo

        • TeamSeth

          I will take your podcast into account!

          Also, this made me think about the screenplay I was writing about LTT…  But, I think I should probably finish up the work I’m already contracted to do before diving back into that endeavor.

      • TeamSeth

        Aw, Maria!  That’s nice (the bit about me improving your day).

        So, it’s still Sarkozy then?  Hm.  You know who I miss…(and you’ll giggle at this) I miss the old coach of France.  He was sooo hot… with those glasses and his gray hair and noble face. An ass, sure, but hot nonetheless. And I miss chocolate eclairs from that pasterrie by the Cachan RER stop. (looks around)  Damnit.

        Anyway, back to NOT thinking about my ex-bf…  so, I read my gmail at breakfast, which I eat at work. So… maybe I will have to alter that habit to include NYT, BBC, and El País and just pick 3 stories from each paper.  That shouldn’t be too much, right?  Maybe I’ll start slow, 1 story from each. Ease myself back in.  Especially since one of the papers in in Spanish.

        Oh, and twitter is blocked at work, so much twitter presence isn’t that abundant.

        • TeamSeth

          Okay, so this is old and no one will read it, but I can’t access NYTimes at work!  Which means no IHT either!  I had to read El País and try to decide why they’re translating presidente to prime minister.  I guess today’s big news is that South Sudan declared its independence officially becoming the youngest country on Earth. And BBC (which i can access too yay) posted a pic of a pretty hot, shirtless Sudan dude wearing a cute little Ian Somerhalder hat.  Because that’s the important part…lusting after South Sudanese men. Baby steps, people! ASkars is still always fresh on my mind.

      Oh TeamSeth, I hope I am not too late to this party.

      Lots of others have said nice things that I could have said too. I’m running low on pithy and witty at the moment, but it’s not because Twilight has turned my brain to mush.

      TS, don’t despair. I don’t think you are dull at all. Your posts are interesting, thoughtful, and entertaining. You add humour to my day!

    Here’s the problem…these “leaks” scream marketing scheme to me.

    Back before the babies I designed for a marketing firm. Our marketing people LOVED leaks to the media about possible “special celebrity guests” to the annual casino wedding showcase. Did they have somebody lined up? Of course not. But if some reporter “accidently heard” that their was going to be one and it got out then attendance/ad revenue would go up. There were a lot of games being played to get attention. Actually, a non profit I worked for did that too. For shame!

    When the release date comes closer for Breaking Dawn comes, what a great way to get the chatter going then a “leak” and a bunch of angry actors on the talk shows. Gets the attention away from any possible talk of the Hunger Games movies, whatever Justin Bieber has under his skinny little boy sleeves or of course a new Zach Efron movie to woo the pre teen ladies away from Rob. 

    It’s Dirty Marketing 101    

    • TeamSeth

      Let’s hope this marketing is naught pictures dirty ;)

      The Hunger Games movies! I hope they are at least good enough to do a whole lot of making fun of like Twi movies. The worst thing is when things are too bland/actors don’t click with the characters to even work with.

    • ladyofthemeadow

      Sing it, sister!

  • Nelle

    I’ve always had a question about these leaks. Isn’t it done by someone who had to be on the set- someone in the business? It couldn’t just be a run of the mill fan. So why do SM and Rob and KStew get so worked up about the fans. Look in your own backyard.

      yeah, the last big bit of set pics were definitely from crew. How unprofessional!

    Confessions: The Twilight Edition
    I recently purchased a Twilight Parody. I sampled a chapter on Kindle, and it was pretty funny. I had a few good chuckles at the paragraph long ridiculous descriptions of how beautiful Edward is, so on and so on. Well the thoughtfulness stopped there, and I regretted not stopping the the sample chapter. The rest of the characters were just purely made up rather than being some funny reflection of the actual Twilight characters. It repeatedly made fun of fat people for no good reason. It didn’t even deliver on it’s promise of random lengthy descriptions of Edward’s breathtaking beauty.

    • TeamSeth

      :( That sucks.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah. I ended up feeling conned out of 7 dollars by the end. Oh well.
        I can think of at least 1 funny thing to make fun of with each character, the Cullen house, and the romantic interaction between Bella and Edward. The author skipped making fun of their makeout sessions, what the hell do you call that. He made no reference to Edwards low talking or growling (although he did make fun of the glowering a lot). He didn’t make fun of Carlisle’s on and off British accent. Anyway, a million missed opportunities for funny.

        • TeamSeth

          Sounds like you should write a similar book…

          • Anonymous

            Sounds like they should take LTT and print it and make a way better book. We make fun of Twilight like nobody else can!

          • Anonymous

            It’s true. I’m sure the guy (it was so very obvious it was a guy, regardless of pen names, he does a lot of sports stat references and skips over makeout sessions – screams DUDE!) watched the first movie and read the first book, probably just to make that parody book, but I would guess that was the extent of it. He skimmed over the sparkling. Why on earth would you do that writing a Twilight parody? I would have brought out the sparklepeen for sure.

          • Anonymous

            In fact, the sparklepeen would have found a way into every other scene.

            Somebody make my day, and write a paragraph long description of Bella being dickmatized by sparklepeen.

            But not as gross as vag. Sparklevag. No, it would have to be called something different. I guess it doesn’t really need a name, since it kind of fits with the part. It is a lady part. It kind of looks like a flower. Doesn’t seem so off that it would sparkle.

            Dear SparkleLotus Bella,

            I saw you today, in the meadow. I was sneaking, as I often do…you know when you hear those noises at night in your bedroom? That’s me…sneaking…Like Golum does on the Stairs of Cirith Ungol.

            But that’s neither here nor there, because I came out of the shadows, and you saw me sparkle. You saw, and I saw, what our sparkling can really do–and darling, I have to thank you for working your sparklelotus like that. I can’t even remember back when you were human, that was a sad time, you were all soft and fragile, and you smelled better, but, now your lotus has bloomed and I even got to spread my seed and we created our lively daughter hybreed. In fact, I’m so content with my sparklepeen and your sparklelotus, that I’ve written a poem echoing my feelings on the matters:

            Pale watchers weary of watching stars
               That fall, and fall,
            and forever fall,
            Tear-worn and troubled with many scars,
               They
            seek the Lotus and end life’s thrall.

            The spirit spelled by the
            Lotus swoons,
               Its beauty summons Sparklepeen’s mood;
            And thus,
            perchance, in a thousand moons
               Its spell shall work in our
            waiting blood.

            Then souls shall shine with an old-time grace,
               And
            sense be wrapped in a golden trance,
            And Sparklepeen crowned in the
            marketplace
               With Love and Beauty and fair Romance.

            I must admit that I may or may not have borrowed a few bars from Roderic Quinn, but that old chap kicked kangaroos and loved me back in 1932. I doubt he would mind, not one bit.

            Please answer me this, oh sweet bearer of sparklelotus, do I still dazzle you?

            With love and some insecurities,
            Your Sparklepeen Edward

            We headed farther up the mountain, reaching a point above the misty clouds. A small patch of sunlight shone on some mossy rocks. “Do you want to see what I really am?” Edwards asked.
            Before I had a chance to answer, he headed slowly to the spot, oddly fiddling with his pants. Perhaps he had a mouse knuckle, and that would really take away from his big reveal. I held my breath, as I always seem to do around him. It is a wonder I get any oxygen to remain conscious. I could swear he was actually undoing the front of his pants.
            “Edward, are you taking your pants down? Not that I don’t want to see, but this is a little strange” I said.
            He didn’t answer. He just stepped into the streaming sunlight and whipped it out. For all I knew they all sparkled like that. Wait, do they all sparkle? No, I didn’t think so.
            “See this SparklePeen? This is the SparklePeen of a killer Bella.”

            “This is the SparklePeen of a killer” oh that’s just…brilliant. Love.

            We were in our meadow. Wearing our favorite plaid flannel shirts.
            “You know Bella, I’ve been thinking. I think you are a bit of people-pleaser, and you are putting other people’s desires ahead of your own. Except the way you always insist that nobody throw you parties or give you gifts. And the way you are insisting you be turned into a Vampire. And the high hair you’ve been sporting lately. You know I’m the one with the bouffant in the relationship. Do I see the beginnings of a Amy Winehouse beehive mullet starting? Anyway, I’d like to give something to you, free from conditions or trade offs. Anything you want.”
            “You know what I want.”
            “No, not really. Just come out with it.”
            “I want SparklePeen.”
            “Okay, I can do that. But we’re not going all the way until we’re married. Would you like to give me a HJ? I brought some glitter lube”

          • TeamSeth

            I fumbled to undo my buttons, the adrenaline rushing through my body. Finally. Finally he agreed to let me ensconce his sparklepeen.
            “Stop trying to take off your clothes, Bella?” he cooed.
            “Oh, did you want to do that?” I asked and blushed. Of course he would. He was so anal about doing everything else his way–heaven forbid I touch the button in the wrong place.
            “No, I’m not going to have sex with you. Remember what I said in the meadow?”
            “But I gave you a HJ!” I protested, hoping he wouldn’t dazzle me out of this argument. Of three things I was certain: I wanted sex. I wanted it from his sparklepeen. And I wanted it RIGHT NOW.
            “But not a BJ.” he gave me that taunting half grin of his. But it didn’t reach his ear.

            ensconce his Sparklepeen! I totally had a marble mantle lined with thick ivory pillar candles. There was probably a bear skin rug below it….

          • Anonymous

            Correction: I had a vision. I didn’t have a marble mantle. I wish I had a marble mantle. Actually I prefer a wood mantle. Sorry Edward.

          • TeamSeth

            It’s not like wood splinters will hurt him. Just fire. So, unless the sex is on fire, then you’re all good…

            Has anyone ever thought that bear skin rug jokes and “their” dog being named Bear is a touch perverse?

    Hasn’t the dress leaked already? I have the pics… Are they fake?? LOL

    • Bubs

      I saw a set of small pics supposedly of Kristen in a dress rehersal of the Wedding Dress. Small photos but they looked like her and the dress as SM described it in Breaking Dawn. Didn’t get overly excited, as that was what I expected it to be like [Kristen has the perfect body for it too]. The bedroom pics however…..yummmmm. Got VERY excited !!!! I’d be soooo disappointed if it became PG13 bland.

  • MariaCecilia

    Thanks *gulp* for the “fan art”. Now I have to look under my bed before going to sleep tonight..

    About the “leaks” and “spoilers” – I am not overexited either way. Sure, I squee over the trailers and pictures when they come (waiting for the soundtrack now, what will it be, what will it be?) but if there were to be any unauthorized leaks of the script or pics of the dress, I doubt I would go look for them on the Internet. I trust LTT to give me the best stuff!! The rest can wait. The only thing that can actually SPOIL BD for me would be bad script, bad wigs, bad contacts and too many fade-to-black scenes..

  • TeamSeth

    That dog photo at the top makes me laugh EVERY TIME.
