Nikki Reed invites me to write a story with her

Let's write a TOTALLY FICTIONAL story together!!

Dear Nikki Reed,

When you (or Seventeen Magazine, whatever… pesky details!) invited me to write a story with you I just KNEW I had to… I mean we all know I’m no stranger to writing FanFic.*** Not to toot my own horn but I think we all remember the Palatial Pad fic rather well. The rules state that we would write alternating chapters with you writing the first one and back and forth from there. After reading your first chapter I knew EXACTLY where this was headed, I MEAN COME OOOONNNN!!! This is essentially your ALLEGED life story circa Twilight and New Moon. So trust me when I say… I GOT THIS!

Ok, so everyone go read Nikki’s Chapter first

A lexicon for your reading…
He = Rob Pattinson
Friends = cast mates
School = film set / real life
Lunch Room = the fabled hotel room jam sessions in Portland

… I knew I loved him, and that’s all that mattered. Sure I wasn’t the prettiest girl in the world, but he always said he liked me for that very reason, so I felt content with that. Most of the time that is. One time, I gathered the courage to sing a song in front of him in the lunch room (I had always loved singing), and he laughed and said “…that’s what’s so great about you; even though you aren’t a good singer, you’re not afraid to try.” That’s a compliment right?

This stuff is SO awkward to look at now

My Chapter-
As his words sunk in I hit him back with “That’s what’s so great about you Rob, even though you aren’t very charming, you’re not afraid to mumble your way to the top.” It had seemed mean spirited at the time especially when the entire lunch room laughed along with him including my best friend Christine. But that’s not how your bestie is supposed to treat you, right? After all she became homecoming queen because her boyfriend knew the principal who counted the ballots because of ME, she was my aunt! Christine never would have known her if not for me. What was also perplexing was Christine’s sudden interest in my secret boyfriend while she had her own and knew how much I was in love with him even though we had decided to keep it private. Oh, she was good at playing the innocent role luring him in with blinking doe eyes and stumbling over her words around him… or anyone really.

One day he finally noticed her. I could tell because he tried to use his charms and tell her stories and she quickly fell for it and all our class mates began to whisper and asked me questions… What was going on?

Oh Christine!

I couldn’t take it anymore I had to let her know this wasn’t alright. So one day while she was delivering her speech on equal rights for all couples and the legalization of pot in speech class, I’d had enough. Sure, I caused a scene and made our teachers and fellow classmates uncomfortable and it definitely alienated him because I was no longer alright with their facade of privacy. It was time I finally shouted it from the rooftops… or at least my desk. Everyone knows!

Oh, Nikki I can’t wait to see where you take this next chapter. And no, I really don’t think you care about this crap anymore cause you’re happily married and writing songs and being nice to us sites/blogs at the premiere but I defs think you should have gone with a different storyline because this just gives the crazies ammo against you and we all know they don’t need more.

Until the next chapter.. to be continued!

Some real reasons I’m thankful for Twilight

Dear Twilight,

This past Turkey Day during our annual “Go around the table and say what you are thankful for” (which, in actuality, was “Oops- we forgot to go around the table & say what we were thankful for so let’s talk about it quickly while we’re doing the dishes”) I shared that I was thankful for you. And I knew it sounded silly to my family, so I explained a little further that it wasn’t the 4 glasses of Thanksgiving wine talking. I was truly thankful that Stephenie Meyer wrote a story that a work acquaintance suggested I read that was turned into 4 movies and gave me 5 excuses to go to Los Angeles over the past 3 years. So much has happened in my life because of a silly little story about a vampire, human and werewolf, and I’m just so glad. Here are a few of the very real things I was reflecting on:

I’m thankful for Moon because without her I’d be a much different person. She makes me better in so many ways, including having better eyeshadow shading.

I’m thankful for ALL the LTT friends who have become real-life friends:

KrazyKidd, myself & Brookelockart, occupying the backseat of our rental car

I’m thankful that BooBoo Stewart had more lines than most of the Cullens. Cuz I mean, finally.

I’m thankful for fun Midnight movie Premieres where we have reserved seats and where 1/4 of our crowd are BOYS:

I think Moon said it best in our Breaking Dawn recap “Fade to Sad-isfied,” but I’m thankful that BD wasn’t a Robsten porno & that Edward & Bella were actually Edward & Bella and  not Rob & Kristen. Bill Condon really GOT how to direct them together.

I’m thankful that a 3 am blogging session brought out the phrase “Fade to Sad-isfied.” Come on. That’s FUNNY!

I’m thankful for the new LTTers we got to meet this trip. And all the LTT shirts they owned:

I’m thankful that I have eyelids that I’m able to shut because I REALLY needed to during the gory birth/back-breaking/edward eating baby out of Bella scene!

More thankfulness after the jump! Continue…

Happy Thanksgiving!

You guys have any turkey??

Dear LTT-ers,

For us here in the states it’s time to celebrate THANKSGIVING!!!! A day (long weekend) to hang with your family, eat a 20 pound roasted/brined/fried/dead bird and be thankful for stuff like your health and friends and crushed velvet suits and Twilight. For those not in the know or need a refresher, we (and by we I mean HeyyyBrother) explained it to Rob on LTR many moons again. It’s a freaking hilarious read if you have time to kill between turkey basting sessions or if you’re like me and want to avoid potentially politically charged conversations with your uncle who arrived in an RV equipped with a satelite dish installed especially for Fox News.

To say we’re thankful for YOU all is an understatement you guys make this what it is, we just provide some nonsense every few days. 2011 has been a redonkulous year and we’re so thankful for all that it’s added to our Twilight and non Twilight lives. We’re also thankful it’s Thanksgiving because we’ve both been running nonstop since Halloween doing Twilight related stuff and this is a legit excuse to take a breather. THANK YOU Pilgrims and the Native Americans you encroached on all those years ago.

We truly hope you enjoy your next few days and sit back and ponder all you have to be thankful for… even if it’s just the fact Jackson didn’t look super crazy in Breaking Dawn. It’s SOMETHING, right?! Even if you’re not in the states or American, Thanksgiving doesn’t just have to happen on American soil or in American households… we all have a ton to be thankful for……… including vampires and werewolves.

Oh and if you happen to see two girls throwing elbows at the Hot Topic Black Friday sale just give us the 50% off Alice film replica chokers and no one gets hurt.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Moon and UC

PS go be thankful at LTR too… you know we love the photoshops :)

Storytime: The best of the rest

*REMINDER: You can mute the sound from the ads on the sidebar AND at the bottom of the page. They will stay muted forever. YAY! Now read in blessed silence*

Dear Twilight,

Oh you thought we were done with our stories, did you? (Recap #1 and Recap #2 in case you missed them!) Well, we’re not… So get excited for a lot of random info you never knew you wanted to know:

Before the craziness started, we snapped a shot with our lovely friend & new LA transplant @katespencer who does red carpet stuff for VH1.

Speaking of Vh1, we were featured as “Super Fans” on Friday (duh- we’re the biggest superfans out there proved by our Twilight-themed guest bathrooms & “I’ll take Edward and Jacob” matching underwear) and got a ton of Krisbian-hate!! Did you guys know we owned “I Hate KStew” t-shirts? Yeah, we didn’t know that either. UC & Moon: Biggest Super Fans around

Before anyone important hit the carpet, we got a group shot with the other fan sites on the carpet. Girl power represent! (Oh yeah, Kaleb Nation aka The Twilight Guy was there and Andrew from Twisource too but I think we scared them off before this picture)

Stuff you missed from the red carpet

We got to interview a LOT of people- some you’ll care about and some (sad) you probably won’t. We know because we forgot some of their names.. Shhhhhh. But we posted a bunch on our You Tube page, which, up until now, has held a brilliant video of Edward & Edward having a romantic moment in Griffith Park, soundtrack by UC, and that one time we embarrassed ourselves SO much for you all. Actually that’s all our videos have ever been. So we’re pretty glad to finally have something decent to share. If you have time to kill, we even made a playlist with all the videos: LTT Goes to the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Premiere. Don’t miss the interview with that “one vampire in the next movie we couldn’t understand.” At least we think he said he plays a vampire.

But you really shouldn’t miss Moon’s interview with Eric Odom. Especially because he gives her “the eyes.” You know the “I”m a c-list actor and so you really should want me now and why don’t we skip this whole movie thing and jump the after party(in my pants) ifyouknowwhatimsaying” eyes:

The eyes didn’t work, sorry, Eric. But you should really get that tattoo cause chicks dig Twilight related tatts (they don’t).

And if you’re looking for a BRILLIANT piece of cinematography, look no further than our interview with Nikki Reed, when the camera wasn’t pointing at her until the last second:

(Let’s give a slow clap to Moon for doing a great job at pretending she had listened to Nikki’s song!)

Much more AFTER the jump!

We saw Breaking Dawn and we are Fade to Sad-isfieid

*REMINDER: You can mute the sound from the ads on the sidebar AND at the bottom of the page. They will stay muted forever. YAY! Now read in blessed silence*

**BREAKING DAWN REVIEW COMPLETE WITH SPOILERS DUH!!! DON’T READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN BD AND DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED!**

Forever is only the beginning

Dear Breaking Dawn,

Remember when we said Eclipse was a real movie last July? Well we hadn’t seen you yet. That’s right, just like fine wine and George Clooney, Twilight keeps getting better with age. And with age comes wisdom… here’s what we’ve learned from Breaking Dawn

Things we learned from Breaking Dawn:

  • If we hold hands in public it’s for two reasons: we are either 2nd hand embarrassed at all the Robsten fans squeeling at any kiss/hand hold/dadward/sex scene or we were genuinely scared or grossed out. Cause that happens in this. BD is NOT for the faint of heart.
  • Forget Bella, Edward and Jacob the REAL love triangle of Breaking Dawn is Sue, Charlie and Billy. Cause for realzzzz yall something is going on with the parents. Breaking Dawn has something for every age… There’s still hope after 40!
  • Becoming a vampire means instant boob job, shiny shiny Ashley Greene type hair and a permanent smoky eye. Oh and not to mention the blood red crazy eyes. You think someone will ask for this on Dr. 90210 next season?
  • Twilight movies can be funny for the RIGHT reasons no longer are Bella and Edward going on a drug trip in the Pacific ocean or slow-mo forest running in Anne of Avonlea clothes, there are moments like the wedding toasts which make you LOL because it’s really funny or when BooBoo Stewart and Taylor Lautner have actual funny Big Brother/Little Brother interaction.

His name's BooBoo... yea I know I don't get it either

  • Speaking of BooBoo Stewart, he had more lines in Breaking Dawn than Kellan has had in all the Twilight movies combined. And his name is BOOBOO. Time to get a new agent Kellan.
  • The CGI team used to create the wolfpack earned overtime concealing Kristen’s buttcrack because her gorgeous dress was cut so low in the back. Who knew butt cleavage would be the new IT thing in wedding fashions? Thanks Carolina!
    .
  • Give Jackson ANY word it doesn’t matter he will throw that faux Texas accent on it and add the Elvis lip curl and make it into a one word stand up comedy routine. We’re still trying to figure out if this is an intentional choice by him or just dumb luck.

Peter sucks at Rock, Paper, Scissors

  • Someone will ALWAYS get shafted and be wearing some sort of heinous wig on their head. Unfortunately, Peter Facinelli drew the short straw this time and to make matters worse, I’m pretty sure his hair line changed in every scene as if the bleached dead animal on his head was taking it last gasps of air before it gave in to it’s inevitable future: lying on top of Mike Dexter’s head.
  • Taylor deserves an award for making the imprinting scene less creepy than we thought it would come off and thank you Bill for showing Renesmee as an adult so everyone else would get it and Chris Hansen could stop hiding in the movie theater broom closet and sit down and enjoy the movie like the rest of us.

Can you not read my lips?! LISTEN CAREFULLY!!

  • Wolves fighting with each other via mind reading is confusing and weird for people not in the know maybe they could have had a fist fight on First Beach or an angry G-chat session instead so I didn’t have to explain what was going on to the super confused couple next to me.
  • Housekeepers in Brazil are super rude and stare a lot… especially when they think their employer is a blood sucking demon. However, the blood sucking demon offers great benefits and a 401k so they keep their mouths shut and keep bringing the eggs.
  • Critics may pan you and haters may hate but ya know what? This ain’t for them. They don’t KNOW Bella and Edward like we do, they aren’t invested like we are. These movies are for us… and the boyfriends and unicorns we drag along with us.
  • The heardboard scene still makes me laugh. HARD.

Babe, let's sleep in tomorrow and go to the 2nd service

  • You know what makes losing your virginity to a preternaturally strong vampire better? Losing it while a song fit for the contemporary service on a Sunday morning plays in the background! For reals though, best song and best scene. Sleeping at Last gets a big HALE YES from us.
  • Speaking of Breaking Hymen, REALLY Bella losing your virginity to a 107 year old virgin was the best night of your life? Maybe the best 50 seconds of your life. Or maybe you’ve got your rose colored glasses on and are romanticizing it a bit.

We do have to say though: Stephenie, thank you (from the bottom of our easily 2nd hand embarassed hearts) for stepping in and not letting them make a Robsten Porno out of the honeymoon sex scenes. THANK YOU!!! It was just right, not too much and not too little… it was perfectly executed so consider us fade to sad-isfied!

Really we loved it… and can’t wait to see it again (and again… and probably again with 10 other people) and then we’ll do some more in depth reviews.

GO SEE BREAKING DAWN! NOW!
Moon & UC

PS See more Breaking Dawn Black Carpet coverage at LTR today! I get Rob-blocked by a certain someone!
