Well, we’re back with some REAL QUICK thoughts over on That’s Normal about the BIG 2014 TWILIGHT NEWS. Oh you don’t know what we’re talking about? Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are getting divorced you guys.
CUE STRING VERSION OF THEIR BREAKING DAWN PART TWO DUET.
no really, We cue it, embed it & so much more over on That’s Normal today. So you need to read.
We miss you guys like, WHOA. It was fun to be “UC and Moon” again for a hot minute.
That’s right- this is Part 1 of 2 of our EPIC story from our amazing #RIPTwilight week together. We wish more than anything we could have taken you with us, shrunk you down a little bit and carried you in our pockets on every adventure we had together. You’d be pocket-sized LTTers. We’d even let each of you have a moment alone with Pocket Edward in our purses if that’s your thing. Some of you could even choose Pocket Bella and we wouldn’t even bat an eye. But alas most of you weren’t there with us and so we’ll do our best to share every detail we can so it feels like you were!
I (UC) flew into LA on Friday evening. After big hugs with some of the OG LTTers we had dinner & headed on over to Tent City to catch up on what was going down there.
Turns out not much. They were watching New Moon on the Big Screen at LA Live & as if God was welcoming us there the scene that was playing as we walked through security was the one when Kristen says “They’re NOT Bears!”
I found a sign that was begging to be leg-hitched
This sign was amazing:
And all the ROBSTEN signs:
It was basically a 2nd-hand embarrassment dream come true.
Then a HERD of Twilight fans went running because they heard a rumor that a Twi-cast member MAYBE was there. There was no cast member, and if herds like that happened often during the weekend I’m SHOCKED no one was killed. Angry/cold/Annoyed Twilight fans should be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. (of course none of the amazing “camping” LTTers were ever angry/cold/annoyed*)
On Saturday we headed back to tent city for the concert for the campers. A few people from the soundtrack performed like: A boy and his kite (Great song!), Anya Marina (YEP. HER), Paul McDonald and Rosalie Hale (I mean Nikki Reed) and Christina Perri.
Jackson MC’d and if you remember us complaining about how TERRIBLE Charlie Bewley did last year, you’ll know this a good thing. There is a DEF a career for Jackson hosting a show like “America’s Funniest Home Videos” if this acting thing doesn’t work out. He did a great job.
Eventually Ashley Greene joined him and they were all cute Alice-and-Jaspery together:
Christina was my favorite because she is a major Twi-hard. She was wearing this pretty red jacket while singing her first song (or two)
and then right before she sang the song that brings us ALL to tears (especially if you’ve seen BD part 2 already!) “A Thousand Years” she took off her jacket and revealed a Twilight T-shirt like the huge Twi-dork she is:
ALSO she apparently has A Twilight tattoo that says “bitten” on her wrist. Way to keep it classy Christina!
Apparently this was Nikki Reed’s first time performing in public, something she said over and over again. Then she cried. AND had to sit while singing and everyone was soooo sympathetic. She sang. She did fine. Then she sang with her husband and at the end they shared a mic and we threw up in our mouths a little bit.
Sidenote: I think Nikki Reed is genuinely grateful for her Twilight experience & how her life has changed as a result. But she says it so often and with SO MUCH EMOTION that it seems fake. Also we liked her jacket. End Sidenote.
During the concert we saw the most EPIC Buttcrack of all time. I have picture proof and everything but…. for reasons I cannot discuss I cannot post it. But it’s like Buttcrack Santa sent us a gift in his absence. Imagine a chilly California day. You’re in California so you expect it to be warm so you’re not dressed appropriately. Then imagine your buttcrack showing SO much and somehow you DON’T notice despite the cold day and the inappropriate-for-the-weather clothing. Seems impossible, right? WRONG. It was possible. I saw it with my own two eyes. Buttcrack Santa gifted us this.
Then the BIG SURPRISE was revealed when Stephenie Meyer came on stage to talk to the fans (as much as a “BIG SURPRISE” can be when you notice a huge-ass card on the side of the stage that says “DEAR STEPHENIE” in big letters inside…. I don’t know who else noticed, but I kinda figured that was coming!) She said some sweet stuff and then ran the hardest Twilight trivia of all time- which people actually PASSED. And those who got correct answers got to dine with her that evening. Pretty fun idea & I am either the worst or best Twilight fan for not knowing the answers. I’m not sure. (but I think best…)
“What was I wearing to bed the night I dreamed of Edward Cullen?”
We had such a fun weekend exploring all the sites & eating all the food in Philadelphia. ALL of it. And we BARELY talked about Twilight! I mean, we discussed our excitement for our LAST (sniff) LTT party (11/11/2012 Downtown LA location TBD) and Mr. Choice gave us another 1/2 hour to discuss Team Jacob vs. Team Edward (we’re still undecided) oh and DUH we watched Twilight late one night because… WHY NOT!? But other than that we discussed our excitement for That’s Normal (TN- officially launching SOON) and vikings.
And turns out we missed a TON of Twilight news:
WE HAVE CAMPERS
Camping Registration began & closed without any major hitches. Now you are to spend 24-7 in prayer until you get the e-mail confirmation that YOU’RE IN! Start collecting all the Twilight paraphernalia you can to decorate your campsite because you’re ALMOST THERE. (and hey if you’re an LTTer and WILL be camping, you better represent! we want to see pictures and the most 2nd-hand embarrassing stuff EVER!)
ROBSTEN IS FOREVER
GUYS: Even though we heard ROBSTEN was official WEEKS ago it’s just NOW that they are OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL because of a photo that ET gotwhich proves that they are TOTALLY a thing and NOT just doing it for the press. I MEAN They are TOTALLY in LOVE. SO MUCH love I keep CAPSING and unCAPsing STUFF because I CAN’T believe THIS is a THING that WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT.
Bear-skin rugs are also forever
ALSO DO YOU THINK THEY HAD TO GET A NEW BEAR-SKIN RUG SINCE ROB THREW OUT THE FIRST ONE AFTER KRISTEN DID PUBLIC GRINDING WITH THAT DUDE?
NIKKI REED BLOGS
We totallllly missed this blog-story that Nikki Reed shared a few weeks back about how she & her husband performed “Their song” which I assume is the song on the BD2 soundtrack in front of no one in Hawaii. Story here. Am I the only one who thinks this is SUPER awkward?
“You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”
Which our LTT code reader reads as “I love to have one night stands with super hot rich older guys”
Check out the article on Marie Claire and watch the video below. I have to say…. she looks pretty hot. PLUS she likes to cook with butternut squash which means we’re basically fake lesbians. The butternut squash is my favorite of all the phallic vegetables. (side note: Since I JUST watched Twilight this weekend I can confirm that homegirl has lost TON of weight she did not need to lose)
Oh– the most fascinating thing I learned from this article was, “The studio [Summit] is rumored to have put a gag order on all the Twilight stars [regarding gossip about ROBSTEN]” Oh REALLLY???
Any bets on WHO will break that gag order first? Have they gagged Cathy Hardi… ’cause they’re gonna need to…..
I MISS MOON ALREADY,
Did you sign up to camp? Are you excited? Who is in for the LTT partayyy?
We got a chance to sit in on another round table interview with our fansite friends during Comic Con with Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser & Nikki Reed. We aren’t the “post transcripts of interviews” kinda-gals (partly b/c up until 5 minutes ago we were the red-headed stepchildren of Twilight and all our interviews were made up (Have no fear– we still are stepchildren. We just would rather be pink-haired if that’s cool with you)) and also because there are tons of fansites out there if you want to read interview with the cast. We’d rather share our commentary. We think it’s that important*
But today I have 1,000 things on my to-do list & MOON is leaving us AGAIN for Africa on Friday. She needs to stop going to Africa. For reals. Twilight needs her. So not much commentary to share.
But I DID discover that we’ve never shared fanart of Esme & Carlisle. Which I apologize for. Because this shizz is goodddddddddddd:
(Click to make bigger & Scroll through)
Esme & Carlise + 8!
Getting steamy on the honeymoon!
Is that a bear cub Esme just killed?
Straw is to Esme & Carlisle what bear skin is to Robsten
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!
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
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?
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!
