Two Years of Magicness on Letters to Twilight!


Can you feel the magicness?

Dear Beloved readers, friends and Twipeoples far and wide,

Come gather round, hop on our bearskin rug we bought especially for this occasional (trust us it’s a bitch to find one this large) and lets stoke up the fireplace. Someone fire up the microwave and pop a top on some Andre because TODAY IS OUR TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! Last year we each remembered what a year of LTT and LTR had meant to us. So this year we decided to remember all those special moments during our second year of reeking havoc in the Twidom.

Moment of Magicness #1
UC
: I had 2 cups of coffee this am
Moon: speaking of 2…. TWO YEARS, dude
UC: DUDE
Moon: 2 years!
UC: yes
Moon: the number 2….. 2 turtle doves
UC: ROBSTEN… it’s a sign
Moon: no. it’s not. but we can talk about our own fireplace moments like leg hitching with steph?
UC: oh yes- DUDE
Moon: Dude, why are you stealing my word?


Yup, we did this. UC is still in shock

I’m sure we can all agree that the biggest thing that happened to LTT and UC and me would be getting picked to interview Stephenie Meyer before the Eclipse premiere last June. BUUUTTT I would like to argue that perhaps an even bigger moment came when after jokingly I suggested we get an official leg hitch picture, Stephenie actually agreed and if we’re all being honest her I think she may have been a little excited about it, but don’t tell anyone! Honestly (this is a lot of honesty in this post already) I think UC and I are beyond grateful that we were chosen and got to meet the lady behind the saga and the ultimate reason we began this thing. She was super wonderful, nice and beautiful to boot. And really, talking about high schools where we grew up and lipstick with a best selling author just doesn’t happen every day. Unless you’re like Pancho or something and in that case he probably doesn’t want to hear about her lipstick. HIS LOSE!

Moment of Magicness #2
UC: Remember when you went to the Runaways premiere?
Moon: and I took a poster of a mullet? Yes, I do!

Me and some LA pals went to the premiere of the Runaways last spring to see what we could see: Kristen, Dakota, Joan, etc etc and we thought well we can’t show up empty handed so we brought this poster:

We may have gotten a few looks for the homeless dude on the corner waiting to see some girl-on-girl action but we knew Kristen would appreciate it. SEE! We don’t hate Kristen! Geez.


He’s like a Twi-Angel with a jewfro

Moment of Magicness #3
UC: big moment: seeing Larry411 in the airport
Moon: Awwww you and Larry!

After UC’s alarm clock malfuntion and missing her flight to LA for the Stephenie Meyer interview and being rebooked on another flight (thank God!) UC was greeted at her gate by a familar face. Not Rob (sadly) but almost as good, it was Larry411 Twilight tweeter and blogger extrodiaire and personal pet favorite of ours. Amidst the snot and tears and near heart attacks it was like the angels opened a portal from heaven and placed Larry411 at UC’s gate. Who else can be blamed credited for this miracle than God because why else would two big ol twihards be on the same plane together if it wasn’t for a little prayer being answered.

Moment of Magicness #4
Moon: How about jorts and ltt immortalized in the Eclipse DVD commentary
UC: haha


No really, this happened??!!!

Really, I mean there are no words. Just this last Saturday we both finally got to hear it with our own two ears after the Eclipse DVD finally came out and it was pretty awesome to say the least. I felt like a rockstar in my own house after Stephenie mentioned LTT and everyone started clapping and hollering for me. It was like an 80s movie slow clap. Maybe I should have jumped up on the bar and gave a small speech something like this:

Oh my gosh, you guys! I mean it was a honor to even be nominated… I mean write this blog let alone take a term like jorts and make it popular amongst the Twi crowd. I’m so sad UC couldn’t be here but she’s currently in Baton Rouge being a stand in for BooBoo but we’d both like to thank God and WordPress and our poor poor families for putting up with us and the makers of Andre.

Moment of Magicness #5
UC: Another moment: our big party in LA at your house
Moon: awwwww that was a whole lotta magicness
UC: that moment when, perhaps I had one too many sips of “Bella’s Blood” that Mr. Choice made me, but I looked around & realized “Whoa… there are people here who wouldn’t be here were it not for LTT….” people who would have never talked- maybe woudln’t have anything in common…. and got a little sappy when we ran to your bedroom to put prizees together for our LTT-trivia game! right after Obird sang us opera in your bedroom!


Woah!


You know, just 40+ of your closest friends seeing Eclipse together!

Moment of Magicness #6
Moon: What about seeing eclipse with like 45 people?!
UC: yes- you telling me where you put all the tickets you bought, just in case you died before the movie
Moon: cause THATS IMPORTANT and normal!
Moon: i still wanted people to see eclipse even if i died… and maybe yell out my name at the leg hitch in memoriam
UC: hahahahahahahaha
Moon: RIP

Moment of Magicness #7
UC: the first thing Stephenie saying to us “I read LTT every day, I’m more nervous to meet you than you are to meet me”


The exact moment (or not)

Yea, that was like crushing on that cute guy in your homeroom for like 6 months and then finally one night at a football game he comes over to where you’re sitting and asks if you and your girls want to get slices (or tacos in my case) with him and his boys after. UM, HALE YES?!


Marry me Jackson… I mean…

Moment of Magicness #8
Moon: what about you interviewing Jacky in Philadephia for Moviefone and being called the SUPERFAN!!!

What else can be said for UC standing in the middle of a busy outdoor venue in Philly to take part in Moviefone’s Eclipse fan events all over the country?! She represented by asking Jackson what was up with all those heinous wigs and since Jasper has different hair in every movie would BD Jasper have a red mullet? Oh yes. She did.

Moment of Magicness #9
UC:  dude we had a HUGE YEAR wtf?
Moon: dude our JUNE was HUGE!! Part 1 and Part Two!
Moon: June was out of control! Switching from WordPress.com to our self hosted sites (finally!), all the Steph stuff, you interviewing Jackson, Eclipse Con, the premiere and what about the video we made about kstews fashion for VH1 that never hit the airwaves?!
UC: yes! which would have been hilarious!
Moon: remember the Popsicle sticks with ratings we madeL “Stew-pid” and “Stew-pendous?” AH! Sad the world was deprived of that. And what about us being interviewed by that Philly tv channel on Eclipse premiere day?
UC: At 6AM, in our PJ pants.


This will open in a new window since they don’t have embeds. LAME.

Moon: I’m pretty sure my roommates may have thought we were insane getting all twilsophical at 6am LOUDLY. I also like that the interview made it look like I’m a mute (far from it) because they edited out the end when I said some stuff. Thanks UC!


Talk about a Happy Birthday!

Moment of Magicness #10 & 11
Moon: Oh and we can’t forget the epicness of your birthday greetings! Who knew that people would remember your story about clutching a loaf of bread while drunk on a toliet? One of my favorite posts to put together cause our readers are SO creative and remember everything!
UC: YES, that was the best
Moon: that also makes me think of the “While You Were Away” posts on LTT and LTR you and readers put together for me while I was away in Kenya this summer. We had talked about what would happen if some big news or event happened while I was gone and how we’d deal And I was worried about being behind when I got back but you had it covered!
UC: awww this makes me miss you. i wish we were in front of a real fireplace remembering right now!
Moon: With the sounds of Robsten on commentary in the background, cause they have the true magicness but I guess we’ll have to settle for IM since that’s how we’ve made this work for the last 2 years, why mess up a good thing?

What a year! Who knows what year THREE will bring us! We can’t wait!

A personal note:
I always feel inadequate when I’m tasked to describe our blogs and the people who frequent them because it’s easy for the outside world, “civilians” to generalize what they think a “Twilight Fan” is when we all know that there’s so much more to it. We’re not all tweens, we’re not all crazy Twimoms on Oprah, and we’re not all cat ladies. Sure there are those among us but they just make this a lot more fun (and embarrassing!). I always want to tell the people who ask that you’re all so much more and not only are you fantastic readers but many of you are fantastic FRIENDS! Seriously, some of your are some of my closest friends. I guess loving these sparkly vampires brings people together. I used to always tells my friends in high school that liking NSYNC brings people together and it’s the same thing with Twilight. Liking Twilight has been the catalyst for so many friendships, you find out someone else likes it then a whole world opens up and you find common ground and it becomes so much more than Twilight. I just want to thank YOU for being so much more to us that you can ever imagine.

And to UC I can’t  put into words our partnership (though we tried last year at this time) or how much this whole thing has meant to me but you mean the world to me! Shall we do another year? I’m in it if you are!

Super Special Thanks the LTT/LTR Family: our forum mods (past and present) you keep that place rolling and have built an amazing community. The Font and White Yorkie for podcasting with us and providing a very hilarious male point of view, for talking us off ledges, making fun of us and braving this thing. Stacey, our shop designer who kills it with the merch and keeps us all looking less 2nd hand embarrassed. EVERYONE who has ever contributed a guest post and saved our butts more than a few late nights! We truly couldn’t do it without you all!

Thank you all for reading over the past two years, for hanging in there when you didn’t agree, for being happy with us when exciting things happen, for having our backs and for just being you.

Love and other goopy things!

It’s Eclipse DVD time and I’ve got a party for you!

(*moon note: sorry for the delay in posting! major interwebz outage in LA last night that put a kink in my writing schedule. but never fear i am here! enjoy your weekend and your DVDs!!)

It all begins with a choice! Or something...

Dearest LTT-ers,

It’s that time of the year again. A new DVD is being released and we’re forced to decided between 3248235482 versions when all we want are deleted scenes (x rated extended leg hitch scene), the real commentary (Rob and Kristen talking about how much they read us), a making of docu, and a preview of BD… but since we won’t get those I’ll leave you to decide between all the choices. My choice? The Target one, I heard there’s a picture in picture option on the Robsten commentary and I want to feel like I’m sitting in the middle of a king size water bed with Rob and Kristen as we drink coco and enjoy a few laughs. What’s better than feeling the motion in Robsten’s ocean while hearing them talk about the magicness they found in catering one day. Finally, those catering people remembered to Fed Ex In-n-Out for the cast and how they teased Taylor with the meat patties. The hilarity I tell ya! Clearly, this will all happen while watching the Eclipse DVD by myself!

So now you’ve figured out which DVD to buy (the water bed one) but you need to figure out which place to celebrate! Seems that Walmart is having ‘parties’ all over the US and Blockbuster on Larchmont in LA is hosting Tinsel and some trivia but if fantasizing about Riley in the garden section with a toothless bumpkin isn’t your idea of a good Friday night or you don’t live in shi-shi Larchmont in LA then why don’t you host your own event? That’s what I’ll be doing. It’s called the “Adult women celebrate a 17 year old vampire they never tell their real life friends about so they gather with their internet friends to oogle said boy vampire and get drunk because that’s normal party.” Sounds like fun, right? Sounds like every day to me.

We’ve seen what the Twimoms can do with a party when left to their own devices, See: The Oprah show. If you’re here we know you don’t have a red bathrug cum red carpet in your basement or even have a shirt with a cast member’s face on it, or have dipped Team Jacob/Edward specific strawberries. We’re all “adults” here so I’ll give you step by step instructions for an LTT/LTR approved Eclipse party…

Eclipse DVD parties RULE!

Run to the nearest liquor store and stock up on booze (boxed wine for folks like Jane Trigs, cheap champagne for people like The Font, whatever’s on sale for UC), get some crackers and cheese and a chocolate bar at the TJ’s nearest you, buy whatever DVD you want, put on some sweatpants, eat the cheese and make inappropriate noises whenever a male cast member comes on screen. Fast forward through the women. Presto! Instant party!

You’re Welcome!
Themoonisdown

So what are your plans for the DVD? Throwing an LTT approved party? Going to Wally World? Opening your mailbox and taking out the DVD? Spill it!

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! Continue…

Getting Twilosophical with Stephenie Meyer

Dear LTTers,

Week after week now we’ve given you the goods on our interview with Stephenie Meyer. We’ve shocked you with our “Eff, Kill, Marry (Leg Hitch, Imprint, Hunt)” question, we’ve made you laugh with our Leg hitch picture and we’ve proved we’re the best of all time with our smooth, cool demeanor- even when she told us she reads LTT every day (Hey Steph!)

But we know you’ve been DYING to know details about the questions we asked about Bree & Fred and the connection between Diego & Bree and why Stephenie choose to let Fred escape but kill both Bree & Diego. Oh wait, you don’t want to hear about that? Oh that’s right- you would have killed us had we asked crap like that and then made you listen to it.

However, our interview wasn’t all fun & games- we did have some serious questions for Steph. I mean…. how could we look at ourselves if we didn’t get Twilosophical with the creator of it all?

Today’s discussion topics:

  • Redemption in Twilight (hollaaaaa) & what happened to Bree? Vampire Heaven? H-E-Double-Hockey Sticks?
  • What did Steph’s kids watch on TV when she was writing Twi?
  • What makes Stephenie want to kill Nacho Pancho
  • Edward’s evolution throughout the saga
  • When Nacho got HOT(ter) & whether or not Mr. Choice is awkward around kids

LTT Interviews Stephenie Meyer Set 4 by letterstotwilight

Yeah… you heard that right- Stephenie said “The Font” and called them “Your Unicorns” Wanna hear that again? We do too:

The Font, right?

SM The Font by letterstotwilight

Your Unicorns:

SM Unicorns by letterstotwilight

You know that’s not the last time you’re gonna hear those audio clips!

Phew- that was way Twilosophical for today. How ’bout I remind you that the marjority of the interview was like this:

Lots and lots and lots of laughter (and way weird faces from UC and Moon almost kneeing Stephenie in the face)

Love,
UnintendedChoice

Catch all our other interview recaps

Send in stuff that made you think of Moon for “While Moon was Gone

Live Blogging the premiere with TheFabLife

Dear Twilight Eclipse Rob, whatever who cares,

We’re excited that throughout the day & evening we’ll be LIVE BLOGGING the exciting, crazy premiere events today with our friends at VH1’s TheFabLife (who are going to be ON the red carpet, FYI)

I (UC) met Kate from The Fab Life through my PERSONAL blog, fell in love with her over lunch one day in NYC and found we are basically the same person except she loves her some Robsten- which is normally a deal-breaker for me in relationships, but I’m letting this one slide :) JK- she’s amazing, totally normal & super funny. AND SHE GETS TO INTERVIEW ROB TONIGHT. Lucky biatch.

Anyway, enjoy & participate in the craziness today & tonight as it all goes down! And once Moon is up and at ‘em she will be giving us the goods FROM the premiere! Knowing her luck lately she’s TOTALLY gonna end up at the After-party DANCING with Big Daddy Lautner. You know it!

PLUS- we’re lucky to have two special guests tweeting along with us tonight: LilCrazyCow (Moon’s cousin who is with her in LA) And THE FONT from the LTT Podcast! You’ll know them by their tweets: The Font’s ends with ^tf and LilCrazyCow will be ^lcc.

Not in LA (like me- boo hoo) and want to watch a live stream? Open this LTT post in another window & watch and join the live blog convo! Once we’re live I might move posts around a bit, so just stay tuned.

So much Eclipse craziness! We actually DID post a regular LTT letter today too! Read it here!!!

XO,

UC & Moon
