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…

Stephenie Meyer on a Twilight Sequel & Fangirling

Dear LTTers,

Jimmy Jillikers! Have we got something special for YOU today!

I have no idea why I used my cheeseball voice, but I was totally in the mood.

Jumping right into what Fridays are for: To bombard you EVEN MORE about our interview with Stephenie Meyer. Yes, my friends, we aren’t done yet. In fact, these clips from today are some of my favorites!

Stephenie Breaks Down Breaking Dawn

And you thought the way we butcher Twilight by adding new characters with Mexican accents, making crude remarks about a wolf & a baby, being pretty descriptive about the things we really want to do to Edward Cullen and asking the really important questions (like what really happens with Bella gets her period) was bad- just wait until you hear what Stephenie really wanted to release because of the crazy demands of the fans for the end of her series:

SM BreakingDown by letterstotwilight

Haters get back! Stephenie’s the TRUE person “disrespecting” the saga! (But we’ll keep claim on our role of disrespecting Rob, nice and slowwwwww…..)

Fangirl

That’s right, we might fangirl over Rob & Taylor (I totally just wrote “Jacob” oops) who are famous because of characters she created, but Stephenie can fangirl too! In fact…. she might call herself “2nd-hand embarrassing.” However, since I’m friends with the girl who got a picture with Rob and I myself have worn a Christian Twilight Tshirt to Wal-mart, I think we can let the creator of Twilight’s fangirl moments slide:

SM FanGirl by letterstotwilight

(Sidenote: around :15 or :16, don’t you think you’re about to hear her say she wants to see Joshua Jackson naked? Yeah…. me too!)

The Twilight SEQUEL

Yes. We threatened to photoshop Stephenie’s skirt into a pair of jorts if she didn’t answer us on the who/what/when/where/how’s of a sequel/novella/continuation of the story we love sooooo much…. and instead of telling us “Yes, I’ll write you a personal story of Edward plus you, UC, then Edward plus you, Moon” like we really wanted, she let us in on why she created Nessie (cause she wanted that baby name and therefore the nickname to go viral, giving her much to laugh about as she “tricked” moms-to-be with a fake cute name) and tells a cute story about when she went to the theater to see New Moon. Yep: Stephenie is just like you & me! She goes into movie theaters. Also has dreams where Edward Cullen is created. That’s normal:

SM Sequel by letterstotwilight

Don’t have time to listen to all the audio today? You fail at LTT fanship, but we understand. Listen to just one clip- I pulled out the New Moon story from the above audio just for you!

SM NewMoon by letterstotwilight

I love FRIDAYS!!!!!!!

Love,
UnintendedChoice

PS: In my spare time blogging much less this week, I purchased & finished MockingJay- the 3rd book in the Hunger Game series. We talked about HG with Stephenie a bit before the tapes were turned on- she’s a major fan (and quoted on the back of the book!) and was counting the days until she got to crack it open (she said she probably wouldn’t get it until a week before it’s release) So, UC approves, Moon will approve (she just finished Water for Elephants, give her a break), and Stephenie approves- you should read it too!

Read, listen & see more from our interview with Stephenie!

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

The time we met Stephenie Meyer & STILL had stuff to share!

Dear LTTers,

Today in the world of “The Stephenie Meyer Interview that keeps giving, giving and giving” we delve into the details she spills about Eclipse re-shoots, hear her “pet” name for Rob, listen as she calls me [UC] “brave” about something I did when she probably really wanted to tell me she’s “2nd-hand embarrassed,” find out a little about Moon’s romantic past, hear the correct pronunciation of “Twilosophy” and… well, why don’t you just take a listen & see what else we have planned:

Stephenie gets violent
Psst you can hear Jodi her agent & Meghan her assistant here too!

SM StupidHelicopters by letterstotwilight

Let’s talk about Meghan for a second (who was the one you heard speak the most next to Stephenie) How much fun would it be to be her? She gets to hang out with Rob Stephenie and make up stories about Twilight characters & helicopters. It’s like writing LTT but getting paid. And MUCH more glamorous. Plus she gets to eat catered movie food. Dear Stephenie, can I have Meghan’s job? Love, me

And did you catch when Stephenie said this: “[It's so] rough on the kids who are trying so hard” Kids!? IS THAT what she’s calling Rob these days? I gotcha, Stephenie!… We can all play it off like the hottest guy to come on the scene in a LONG time is a “kid.” I guess we can call Xavier that too! *wink.

Stephenie’s Battlefield & Eclipse Re-shoot Rumors
We wanted to ask Stephenie this: “Summit makes really dumb decisions like 99.7% of the time. How do you deal with it? Do you want to scream & tell them you’re taking your books somewhere else? How much do you hate them on a scale of 1-10. Do you blame everything in your life- like when you lock yourself out of the house- on Summit like we do?” but figured she wouldn’t answer that… so… we went about it a little nicer:

SM PickingBattles by letterstotwilight

I’d like to see Stephenie “throw a fit.” Does she quickly heat up a vat of fish fry & throw it into the face of the executive at Summit? Maybe she writes a novella following the Volturi on a weekend trip to LA where they break into the offices at Summit & feed on the execs causing her fit. Perhaps she threatens to steal Robsten’s bear skin rug where they make all their magical love so that they’re so distraught they can’t even act out their latest scene. Or maybe I’m thinking too deeply about this & it’s much more simple: she gets the fever and phases into a wolf…

And how about around 2:03 when she says about Jacob & Bella in the tent, “I would have had [them] more enveloping than it was” PROOF- TEAM JACOB. We KNEW it!

The case for Virgins
Twifans starts a great conversation about the virginity talk in Eclipse & it naturally progresses into a talk about Twilight & religion:

SM virginsandreligion by letterstotwilight

Did you catch this one around 2:05?

Stephenie “Guess what these conversations really DO happen”
Moon “YEAH!!!!”

Sounds like someone has a little experience being cock-blocked by an old fashioned guy, huh Moon??

And how about when I chime in & say, “Bella wants it” I cringe listening back to that… I say that at little too convincingly right? I’m like, “No, believe me! If I want it this badly from a book character, I promise you the book character that actually gets to be with him REALLY REALLY WANTS IT.” Seriously, UC, as if Stephenie, the creator of the want of the virginal vampire, didn’t know. HA!

And Yes- you heard that right After the part where Stephenie says she enjoyed something I wrote (This letter about Twilight and Religion, at 2:24 she says, “So I’m saying it right!” She’s proud of herself for pronouncing “Twilosophy” right all this time. Has it hit you yet that Stephenie actually reads LTT? Yeah.. me neither.

Gah somedays I love to be reminded of how amazing this day in the life of UC & Moon was!

Xo,
UnintendedChoice

Have you read ALL the “Meeting Stephenie” recaps? They’re pretty awesome.. Like.. I’ll probably get them printed in a book because this was a pretty amazing moment for both of our lives! If you want a major Cullen Smile, just re-read everything- or for the first time if you missed some: Interviewing Stephenie Meyer

What we were actually thinking during our Stephenie Meyer Interview

Dear LTTers,

You’ve learned that Stephenie actually reads LTT; you’ve seen our EPIC picture of the LEGHITCH with the creator of the LEGHITCH; you’ve heard about Midnight Sun- the book we hope she loses the manuscript for so no one has to read that piece of crap; you’ve heard us hint that there’s much more to share. We thought we were already pretty generous, but apparently sharing 3 pieces of our 4 hour conversation wasn’t enough for you all. Sheesh. So demanding.

Anyway, this week we had a chance to listen to some of the audio we took *sniff* 4 weeks ago today, and let me tell you: Re-listening to this stuff was pretty awesome. While it was only 4 weeks ago, so much has happened in both of our lives that it seems like it was FOREVER ago. So getting to hear Stephenie’s voice again nice & loud and clear (because Moon had the microphone all up in her personal space- she was basically sitting on her lap she was so close to her) was a great reminder of the amazing experience & how blessed we still feel for getting picked to be a part of the day!

Aww! The whole gang

Sappiness over. Let’s get real. Here’s what was really going through our heads during the interview:

Leg hitch, Hunt, Imprint

UC: I’m offended
Moon: ME too
UC: WHY does Stephenie immediately think we’d ask something that might make her blush? As if!

Moon: Which one is Fred again?
UC: He’s not Xavier! I know that…! Is he “The red head?”
Moon: No.. that’s Edward…Ohhh he’s the one who smells
UC: hahahaha (I totally read his “gift” as a smell thing- sorry Steph)

Vampires aren’t Stephenie’s “thing”

UC: Did Stephenie imply she and Michael Sheen were talking about how Stephen King is lovely?
Moon: Yeah I think so…. Do you think she knows?
UC: About the awful things he said about her!? Of course she knows. My grandma even knows! She cut out a newspaper clipping and mailed it to me when she read about that!
Moon: And yet.. she still called him lovely…
UC: Stephenie Meyer 1, Stephen King, 0

Oh heeeyyyyy Stephenie likes Xavier too

UC: So it’s official.. Cathy Hardi never got Stephenie high by telling her it was an herbal sleep aid?
Moon: I was so sure it happened at least once
UC: We’re still convinced though that Stephenie had a few sips of the Ultimate Cougarita (the drink named after Cathy at TGIFridays, in case you’ve forgotten) because Cathy told her it was a special virgin cocktail made especially for her?
Moon: Oh for SURE that happened. Cathy wasn’t going to try to sneak into Rob’s room without a partner!

More tidbits and maybe a picture or two, after the jump! Continue…
