Have you Joined us over at Thats-Normal.com yet?

Hey LTTers,

It’s true– it’s really me. You thought you’d never see us post over here again & I thought I’d never sign off as UnintendeChoice again (except in every email I will send to Moon from now until eternity, of course) but alas, I just can’t quit you.

That's Normal

Well… we’re not really back but I’m not on a mission to convince you to join us over at That’s Normal. Oh right– remember we started that new site & that’s why we stopped posting over here? Well, it’s been a BLAST. Seriously. I was pretty bummed when Twilight was ending that nothing would ever replace it. And while I’m not sure I’ll ever fangirl over anything so hard ever again, it’s been so fun writing about whatever the heck I want over on TN. Here are a few things we think you might like:

The day I realized there are flaws in Breaking Dawn Part 2

Update: Stephenie Addressed the BD Part 2 Ending on her blog (coincidence, huh?)

While we’ve only spent time gushing over BD part 2 because we thought it was a pretty darn perfect end to a pretty darn perfect saga (I mean…. except for all the things we’ve complained about over the past 4 years…) we have to share a recent letter we got because she’s NOT the only one who noticed this imperfection. This is hard though… I mean complaining about Twilight after all the #RIPTwilight we’ve gone through? Isn’t that like bad-mouthing grandpa soon after his funeral? Oh well, forgive us Grandpa (aka Stephenie & Bill & Buttcrack Santa) Also this contains SPOILERS which at this point if the ending hasn’t been spoiled for you, you must have a much fuller life than I….

Dear Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,

So I’ve started thinking about other aspects of the movie, now that I’m starting to relax and breathe again after that shock of the sight of Carlisle beheaded (oh, right, SPOILER ALERT…. how long until you don’t need to say that any longer? A week? A month? Until it’s out of theaters?).

Breaking Dawn battle scene

SPOILER ALERT: This happens

Anyway, earlier today something dawned on me (albeit, I’m a little disappointed in myself for not realizing this sooner, but, you know, Carlisle, Seth, Jasper DEAD… yeah, that’s a lot to get past) and I’ve decided that we need to sit down and have a chat about Alice. Specifically her visions.

But first, let me get something straight; Alice can’t see werewolves… right? And… Alice can’t see Nessie… correct? And this is true, not just in the books, but in the movies, right?

Yeah. I thought so.

So, why do I ask? Well, I was wondering how is it that Alice would see things about Jacob and Renesmee. Like the fact that they would need passports?

Okay, okay, that one I can see you talking your way out of that it was just a precaution, that she didn’t know, but knew that she had to give the best possible chance of Nessie surviving even if the rest of them were doomed and it was just a slim chance, she was still going to take it. Fine.

alice-jasper

“Are you turned on?” “Yeah… I can see the wolves now…!”

But then, tell me, how did Alice see Jacob and Nessie running away and Jacob slaughtering that vamp chasing them without slowing down his full-on sprint if she can’t see either of them? Because that was part of her vision Aro saw. Or if you’re going to argue that we (the audience) wouldn’t have believed that they would have been able to flee un-chased, or that it made for good dramatic effect and suspense (and then relief knowing they got away safely). Fine.

But how did Alice see the whole fight to Aro’s death if the wolves were there? Didn’t the wolves involvement with the fight in Eclipse against the newborns cause her to go blind? Wouldn’t that mean that Alice wouldn’t have been able to see anything about the standoff with the Volturi the moment that the wolves were involved? Or did Alice work on her ability to see around her blind spots and get really good at it. But then, how did she see Seth dying? Or Leah?

Or was there something that happened when Nessie was born that no longer blinded Alice? Or maybe the weremagic of Jacob imprinting on Renesmee unclouded her vision of both werewolves and half-vamps? Hallelujah! Alice is cured! The link was made between wolf human and vamp and now she could see them all. Maybe it was supposed to have made the movie, but was cut out during editing and was therefore never explained to us that in the movie version, Alice can now see those half-breeds.

That has to be it, because how else could Alice have seen that vision of Edward, Bella, Jacob and Renesmee all together after little Nessie is “all growed up”, assuring Edward know that his whole family would have a happily ever after?

Oh, I’m not complaining. I still think the twist was pure genius and wouldn’t have you change it, nor would I take back the blissfully happy vision Alice has at the end of the film of the 4 of them, the picture of a perfect, happy family.

I’m simply curious.

Mind still blown from BDII,
TeamJacobEdward

Hmmm….. since I’m the world’s worst Twilight fan, did Stephenie ever address how Alice knew Nessie & Jake would need passports in the book? Do we know HOW Alice can suddenly see things where the wolves are involved? Or is this just the magic of Hollywood (and prayers from Stephenie that we all forget about that teeny tiny detail from the books?)

Do you care? Does it matter to you?

PS: In case you wonder what I think… I don’t care. I want to be entertained by a story I love and characters I love. And I was!)

PPS: Around the Thanksgiving table when we were asked what we were thankful for, #1 I said Mr. Choice for putting up with me & vampires for 4 years. #2 I said Moon because she’s the world’s best Moon and #3 I said you. Yes you. I told my Grandpa and everything…. xo UC

We’re playing favorites (with Vampires) and think you should too

Dear LTT,

In continuing with our recap of our #RIPTwilight week together (and more specifically the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere) we wanted to share a few videos from some of our FAVORITE cast members.

We all know we love the Cullens– I mean Hello Rob yum yum forever. Jackson is WORKING it these days with 100 Monkeys and terrible outfits & hats out of his system. Even though I’m not into the big muscular type, Kellan’s personality makes up for any d-baggery and you have to love a guy who admits to reading The Purpose Driven Life. And Peter Fach is like the world’s best dad.

That’s established. But our favorite cast members as of late have been the newbies. Maybe it’s because they’re active on Twitter & we get to see their personalities. Maybe it’s because we’ve met them in person and shared a meal and some drinks (and they EAT unlike some Cullen girls who I assume do NOT) or maybe it’s just because they’re all-around good people and they deserve to be on our favorite list. Either way, here they are:

We know, you’re busy. No time to watch videos. You have time for these! Trust! 

Erik Odom

Oh Erik, we called you Z-list last year and you read it (and remember it since you mentioned it to us recently) and yet you still talk to us. We weren’t sure what was going on with your jacket at the premiere this year, but it sure was interesting to touch. And we love you because you aren’t afraid to share your deep knowledge of all things Hobby-Lobby. Plus you treat us like we’re not fans (WE AREN’T. WE’RE NORMAL PEOPLE) and your Grandma posts cute things to your Facebook wall:

Toni Trucks

Could this girl be ANY cuter? First she ends tweets with “Beep Beep” (last name is Trucks. It took me a few days to figure that one out. So smart) and then she’s the most real, down-to-earth actress I’ve ever met. Someone give this girl a sitcom. Or a role on Downton Abbey:

JD Pardo

JD is a new addition in 2012 to the “yum” list. Plus he’s on one of our fav new Fall TV shows (Revolution) and is pretty great! From what we can tell in the storyline, they’re making his role even more important, so I think he’ll be around for awhile. We have a joke with JD about visiting Wilmington, NC that comes up every time we see him (listen to the beginning of the interview & you’ll hear it) Plus we will one day do shots together. If we do shots together IN Wilmington I’m pretty sure the world will explode. Or at least the lights will go out (Revolution joke, holllaaaa):

I’ve never done red carpet interviews for any other fandoms, but I can’t imagine they are all as great as the Twilight black carpets. The actors & people involved are great to talk to– even when they get to us at the end after they’ve talk to HUNDREDS of others. I know it’s their JOB and some people are better at it than others, but we’ve had such a great experience with most cast members, especially our new favorite vamps! Oh, 1 of them is a 1/2 vamp if you want me to be technical (SPOILER ALERT)

Hope you love them as much as we do!!!

UC & Moon

Who is your favorite random Twi cast member? Don’t say Rob!

#RIPTwilight: The End is (far too) near

Dear LTT,

I hope you’ve been following along with our weekend via Twitter or Facebook. Let’s just say we got to meet THIS girl:

 

Oh yes. That’s Nutty Madam in the flesh (video to come!)

Just a quick run-down of today’s events. The red carpet starts at 4:30 pm PST, which means my heels go on around 2pm PST and I’ll start complaining about my feet hurting at 2:10 pm. The sun goes down at 4:52 pm tomorrow which means I’ll be complaining about being cold around 4:48 pm. We’ll be yelling at Mike Welch to stop cock-blocking Rob from the carpet around 7:25 pm PST.

To follow along with the shenanigans, please please please follow us on Twitter: @letter2twilight. That’s where we’ll be the most up-to-date! Facebook will be the close second for LTT craziness.

And you can WATCH the premiere (and hopefully catch a glimpse of us and our EPIC SURPRISE) starting at 4:30 pm PST via yahoo movies! (if the stream doesn’t show below go to: http://movies.yahoo.com/twilight)

We cannot wait to share stories & tales from a #RIPTwilight weekend to remember in the days to come! Wish you were all here to join in a big LTT group hug

xoxo,
UC & Moon

PS: Check back EARLY tomorrow am (12 ET/9 PST tonight) for a preview of Moon’s review of Breaking Dawn Part 2 (with NO spoilers!)

Apparently there’s a Surprise Ending to Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Dear LTT,

I haven’t seen BD part 2 yet. Not like that biatch Moon who saw it last week & texted me this:

And ALL I keep hearing (even the official Twilight Facebook page mentioned it today) is about THE ENDING. THE ENDING.

At first I Thought they were just sad about THE ENDING cuz #RIPTwilight but apparently SOMETHING happens in the end. Something BIG.
A SURPRISE.
A CULLEN SURPRISE (okay made that last one up)

And it got me thinking….. what COULD it be?

1. Does Stephenie Meyer wake up in her bed and we realize it was ALL just a dream? (that would be amazing FYI)

2. Do ALL the Cullen’s die & the wolves too and they all end up in Vampire-Werewolf heaven where surprisngly they get along & can stand the smell of each other?

3. Does Esme’s child come back to life?

4. Do we get to read Midnight Sun ON THE SCREEN?

5. Does Leah FINALLY get a man?

6. Is an announcement made that Stephenie is busy at work on Jacob-Renesmee Trilogy?

7. DO WE GET IN REAL LIFE CONFIRMATION THAT ROBSTEN IS REAL?

8. After the non-fight do the Volturi, Cullens, Werewolves & friends all grab a family-style dinner at The Olive Garden?

9. Using new, magic never-before-seen-technology does a real-life Edward Cullen come out on 3D and individually leg-hitch each girl in the audience?

10. Does MUSE join Rob Pattinson, Nikki Reed & her husband around the piano to sing an EPIC version of Bella’s Lullaby?

No seriously… I have NO idea what it could be. I know this saga SO well (i read Breaking Dawn twice guys!) and I cannot for the life of me imagine what would be a BIG surprise!

What do you think?

Love,
UnintendedChoice

PS: If you know– don’t give it away!
PPS: As you’re readnig this I’m probalby on a plane to LA! #RIPTwilight here I come!
