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!

Movefone helps us figure out who’s on The List!

Are you on it?

Dear Summit,

You know that “list” we’re always talking about… the list with the names of all the crazies who set stalk, call you daily, want to BE Kristen or Rob or Taylor or Mike Welch or have been found in the bushes outside of Rob’s parents home? If you need video or pictures to help train your staff on how to distinguish people who should be on “the list” that I think I’ve found your answer.

It looks like MovieFone’s done ALL the legwork for you. They have a contest going where fans submit videos explaining why they’re the biggest Twilight fan. All you need to do is contact Moviefone, watch these videos and then perform a sting operation to infiltrate the crazies lair of crazy (I’m trademarking that) and take these people down

How to spot someone on “The List”

Exhibit A:

1. If someone says “this is more than an obsession, it’s a way of life.” You need to give them the side eye and the simultaneous head nod to have security send them to the “safe zone” aka the back of the paddy wagon. Decorate it with Twilight posters and they’ll think they’re in a special after party location instead of being driven to the edge of town and dumped after the event is over.

2. If someone mentions anything using the word “bullets” whether taking one for a cast member or has a membership to the gun club or tells you they just finished their 7 day mandatory wait period before buying a handgun, don’t hesitate, immediately illuminate the “Twi Signal” in the sky (a sparkling paw print) and have Dean or the Po-po take them down.

3. During the above mentioned sting operation, when you bust through the door of their home like the Feds looking for Elian Gonzalez if you see movie quotes such as “You are my life now” proceed with take down. Use a rolled up Harpars Bazaar or Vanity Fair as a gag if they start getting mouthy or quoting Twilight

4. Are they wearing a wedding dress and veil for unexplained reasons?

5. Is there any sort of Twilight Tattoo involved?

6. If someone has both Edward & Jacob posters on her wall, grab her fast. She’s not picky- she’ll take either and they are the craziest kind.

7. If the posters are ALL Kristen, they’re a Krisbian and they can be the most hardcore and most dedicated, so take them down immediately or risk them using their well practiced “Bitch brow” to stare you into submission. And no one wants to be stared at like a petulant teenager.

You see Summit, with my handy checklist and this video you’ll be able to spot the crazies and get rid of them as necessary so that the rest of us can enjoy all Twilight events without having to wear the Twilight bullet proof vest that’s available at Hot Topic.

Now will you take US off the list? Thanks!
Themoonisdown

Do you think you’d be on the list? Is this girl crazy or normal? Can you identify or are you too busy painting Twilight quotes on the wall of your cell bedroom?

Kristen Stewart’s “Brother” speaks out about the Krisbians

*please read the entire post and the note at the end before you wild out in the comments*

Dear Kristen,

I just watched this video where you discuss the term “Krisbian”

Really, Kristen? Your “brother” doesn’t like the term? In fact it “pisses him off” you say… why is that do you think? Why would your “brother” hate that girls would go gay for you or at least have a torrid make out session at The Truck Stop in West Hollywood with you for one night? What else pisses your “brother” off so much?

How about when he turns the tv on and it’s always on the Logo channel? That you just bought stock in the Croc’s shoe company? Your roadtrips with Taylor Scout Compton? That your favorite show is “Thintervention with Jackie Warner?” That your idea of a romantic date is going to Home Depot for a new tool belt and a hot dog from the vendor in the parking lot? That your favorite actresses are Cynthia Nixon (and Rojo Caliente!), Meredith Baxter Berney and that girl from Top Gun?

Man your “brother” is judgmental! Can’t he just accept you and your fans and who you choose to love?  Does your “brother” get to choose who you love? And really, doesn’t your “brother” have stuff he should be doing? Like going out with his bromantical friends? Buying more smokes from the bodega across from the the hotel? Isn’t there an In-n-Out run he should be making? And I’m pretty sure there’s a ton  of push ups your “brother” needs to be doing right now for something important that’s coming up. Right? Your “brother” should probably be in the middle of his 5th rep of 100 crunches right now instead of trolling the internets for Krisbians to cyber bully. Jerk.

Really, if it weren’t for your “brother” you’d probably call yourself a Krisbian, right? You’d start a convention for all the Krisbians to meet up and wear Krisbian shirts. You’d tie a knot in yours, of course. And then lead a break out session on proper knot tying so that all the Krisbians were doing it the correct “Kristen Approved” way.

Ok, ok maybe you wouldn’t do any of that because well we heard months ago that you and I guess your “brother” now didn’t really care for the term Krisbian. And we agonized for months over who would have to write the letter letting everyone down gently. But with this video I guess we’re off the hook now and we can meet up and have girl talk over Margs!!! Virgin for you, of course. But it’s funny, Kristen, I really feel like we’re on the same page now. Like we have something in common after all this time. Wow, this might be a new chapter in our relationship.

But now that your “brother” has to come in and rained all over everyone’s parade and said the term pisses him off, what can we do about it Kristen? What about the Krisbians? Are they at home crying into their Krisbian for life pillows? Marked out with sharpie now, natch. You just can’t change how you feel, we know that! It’s like they’re the Kurt Hummel in this Glee world and we feel for them.

We love YOU just the way you are

Maybe we should start a support group for the Krisbians to vent their feelings and provide a safe place for them to discuss what they’ll do to your “brother.” I mean… umm…. how they’ll ‘take care of’ your “brother” welllll…. ok. Maybe we should hire bodyguards for your “brother” instead.

Loving everyone just the way they are,
Themoonisdown

A special note to Krisbians: we love and accept you just the way you are! No matter who you choose to love. We’re not like Kristen’s “brother,” you’re safe here! And to show our support we’ve even thinking of turning our avatar purple on twitter… if we could figure out how to do that.

*No we don’t think Kristen’s “brother” is really her BROTHER, nor do we think any of them are cyber bullies or gay bashers, nor do we hate Kristen. There! Saved you from your dumb comments, people who can’t have a good time on the internet.*

Breaking Down Renesmee, porcelain dolls and our twifan card

Dear Breaking Dawn film makers,

There’s been tons of rumors about the new movie with most of them about who will be cast as Reneesme Carlie Cullen. Oh yea full name, who’s the twifan now?! But anyway it’s a big thing to cast, I mean this is the spawn of Edward and Bella, the fruit of their… ahem… love, the final WTF moment of the saga so it better be good. There’s a lot riding on this, so when news of one of the rumored girls testing for Renesmee started heating up UC and I knew it was time to break it down…

The one where we think Renesmee is pint sized

The spawn of Edward & Bella???

Moon: ok some renessssmeeeee….. so tons of gossip out there about who will be cast as renesme some actors daughter and now a 9 yr old with huge eyes. so what do you think? initial thoughts
UC: initial thoughts is maybe I’m the ONLy one who ended BDawn thinking renesmee looked no more than 3- MAYBE 4 max
Moon: yea i thought she was small like toddler/4-5 age but talked like an adult or acted older
UC: and i’m interested to see how Kristen acts the part in the script that says “Bella’s eyes grow wide as she realizes the child that burst from her abdomen 3 months earlier is now ready for the 3rd grade & loves to eat spaghettios” think she can pull it off? Is there a stutter for that (da dum ching)

Yea, I pretty much imagined Renesmee as the Samantha the American Girl Doll (hat and all)

Moon: i even had this weird image of her in like victorian type clothes like a porcelain doll, with a little hat and curls on the back of Bella and Jacob
UC: ME too.. and curly hair
Moon: like the idea doesnt really even compute. but theyre saying they’re going to use some benjamin buttons shit to use the face of the girl on a toddlers body
UC: right.. WHY? why not just use a toddler? they act on those Oscar Meyer Weiner commercials
Moon: well it’s hard for a toddler to act older i think thats the reasoning behind it like they need an older child who can interact in an older way but the look of a little kid
UC: yeah, I get it. But I WANT YELLOW KITCHEN CUPBOARDS DAMNIT
Moon: HAHAHAA dont we all. “accept it now!”

The one where we lose our fancard
Moon: all i can think about is rob and kristen interacting with this girl like WHAT is that gonna be like??
UC: I cannot IMAGINE!!!! i can’t remember- are there many scenes with the 3 of them? Can Stephenie write one in quick- family hunting trip? NO jacob? just the 3~?
Moon: yea the whole happy little family in the cottage and before the whole witness scene wait didnt they have a family hunting trip isnt that what irina sees?
UC: ohhh yes! I can’t remember is Jake is around the corner

REVOKED!

Moon: cue our twifan card being taken away from stephenie herself
UC: I mean… IMAGINE that for a second Cute 9 year old, blood on her chin Rob…. blood on his chin. and his shirt Kristen chomping down on a deer i mean… it wasn’t that ridiculous when I READ it but that’s RIDICULOUS!
Moon: right how is all this going to look?! have we not learned to TRUST yet?! i mean we worried about taylor and Kristen in NM we worried about the leg hitch and they’ve taken care of us but id be lying if i wasnt worried A LOT about BD
UC: A LOT
Moon: the birth, the baby, the hunting
UC: the sex- I mean….. what if we have a ton of nonstens in our theater? Do you think we’ll be safe? should we hire bodyguards?
Moon: dude we get that they’re together, we also dont care and we also get that theyre ACTORS i hope and i dont hope it’s awkward as hale
UC: i know…. b/c if it is, it’s because they’re thinking “omg this is awkward cuz we do this in real life- rob just broke the headboard LAST NIGHT- but that’s b/c it was Ikea and I got it when I was 10″ he and TomStu were jumping on the bed You know what I hope?
Moon: what do you hope?

BOOBS


The one where we love kids
UC
: I hope that when we watch it… we see Bella & Edward- just as we imagined them when we read BD for the first time I hope I forget it’s Rob & Kristen because as fun as being “involved” in their stars lives is (without their knowledge moohahaha – creeper) it’s quite possibly ruined the characters for me Can we really look at Edward & not think “He eat Hot Pockets”? Can we see Mike Newton & not think “Boobs?” And briging it back to Renessmee- can I see her on screen & not think “bitch is too old” Also… can I call a 9 year old a “bitch?” Cause I don’t think I can…
Moon: you called a 9 yr old a bitch…….. welcome to LTT world slut! heeeeey!!!!!!
UC: haha, we love jokes about kids.
Moon: ps but seriously, how in the HALE do you spell renesmee?!

So film makers can you see what we’re worried about and what we’re counting down the days till BD for? So make it good, we’re already regrouping our prayer chain to begin “praying and fasting for Breaking Dawn” again. Just so you know…

Renessme/Reneeseme/Renesmee/Renneesmee?
Themoonisdown

PS we dont hate kids, so don’t even try it.

So what will it be? WHO will it be and what did YOU think Renesmee looked like when you first read Breaking Dawn??

From here to Breaking Dawn, the timeline

*Stay tuned for a VERY IMPORTANT note from UC and Moon at the end of this post*

Dear Breaking Dawn (uno and dos),

You are quite a ways off, especially in our ADD, RIGHT NOW, twitter update, I knew it before you did, always connected obsessed world. So what are we do do for the next 2 PLUS years?!!!?!! That’s a lot of time! Houses are built, babies are conceived AND born, people meet and break up. What will happen in the world of Twilight over the next two years?

I’ve come up with a timeline for what I think the next two years in the Twilight fandom will look like…

September 2010 – Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas elope to Las Vegas and make “Ashoe” official

October 2010- Sales on Loquat costumes on regrEtsy go through the roof

November 2010 – Breaking Dawn begins filming in Vancouver and Louisiana. Louisiana considers renaming their sta Twilousiana because of the jump in tourism courtesy of crazy Twihards. They reconsider after the crazy Twihards test their police and emergency services to their limits in an effort to keep the cast somewhat safe.

December 2010 – Moon and UC celebrate 2 years of blogging about Twilight and Robert Pattinson

-100 Monkeys, Sam Brady (typo and it stays!), Bobby Long, Marcus Foster, Kiowa Gordan and his band Touche, Tinsel Korey and Mike Welch on vocals and Sage come together in whatever town Breaking Dawn is filming in for a special Christmas benefit concert. Before the cops bust in and arrest them for noise complaints they all gather on stage and sing “We are the Rob.”

January 2011 – Moon and UC sue 100 Monkeys, Sam Bradley, Bobby Long, Marcus Foster, Kiowa Gordan and his band Touche, Tinsel Korey, Mike Welch and Sage for stealing their hit song “We are the Rob.”

MMMMmmmm doughnuts!!

– Robsten breaks up, on set, over an argument about a flannel shirt and a jelly doughnut
– Robsten reunites 3 days later over a French Cruller in craft services

Follow the cut for the rest of the timeline and to read our VERY IMPORTANT note
