Brooke's year was full of new friends and FUPA's!

*To finish out the end of this special Anniversary week we’ve been having afternoon letters from reader-friends and today’s letter is from Brooke, missed her thanksgiving letter? Shame! Read it! Also make sure you see the VIDEO I made of the last year of LTT LTR!*

"Book Club" meeting in Seattle

Dear LTT/LTR,
Happy Anniversary! Break out those little bottles and make Buttcrack Santa proud! Sorry I didn’t get you a gift, but I figured my loving contribution today would count for something. Since I have already shared with you my thankful thoughts for this blog and the fandom (the non-crazy ones, of course), I wasn’t sure what else I could say without completely repeating myself. After eating my weight in caramel popcorn (damn you work vendors!! *shakes angry fist*), I had a few ideas…

At first, I had planned on writing about LTT/LTR momentous occasions: the first post that *I* read, the first time *I* was mentioned in a post (with my picture)***, the second time *I* was mentioned in a post, the time *I* was a guest panelist and taught the world about the FUPA, the time *I* talked about needing more batteries from all the fic and rob porn, the time I coined the phrase “I don’t give a flying fucksten”, the time when *I* gave my eloquent opinion on fan fiction, or finally the time when *I* had my pic with Sam Bradley show up on LTR this past weekend. This idea fell flat, because clearly I have not been included on this blog nearly enough times.

A year's worth of Twilight and Rob shenanigans caught on video!

Dear LTT/LTR’ers,

Since we began planning this anniversary week I knew I wanted to make a video to help capture a little bit of the magic from this past year. I wanted to show all the people who met, all the concerts we went to, the cast members we met, all the 2nd hand embarrassing crap we did and all the stuff that we’ve written about that’s become folklore on the blog. And I even knew the song I wanted to use during the video… as it turns out we did SO much of that stuff, met so many people and had way too many good times I had to loop the song three times (it’s a short song) to fit it all in and I didn’t even scratch the surface of all the people who have met on here so I hope you’ve forgive me because I don’t have pictures of everyone but I hope you enjoy a little look back at the first year of Letters to Twilight and Letters to Rob.

Enjoy!

We love and appreciate you all so much! Words, videos and letters can’t come close to expressing it. Just know this is the place where we always hope you’ll come whether it’s a good day or a bad day, whether we’re funny or not, we love this little community!

Have a rad weekend!

This was my very first attempt at making a video with “moving parts!” Pat me on the back people! HA, I kid, but it is super fun! Since we don’t all live in Boston near “Cheers” what bar would you take us to if we came to visit? Share it with us in the comments!

One Year later and our internet game is still ridiculous: The Forum, LTR, Twitter

One Year. It's been a long time coming! Celebrate our year in the Twilight fandom!

Oh hello outtake of Moon & UC in a disney forest!

Dear UnintendedChoice (I used your full fake name cause I’m serious. I’m also wearing a pair of Tweed jorts),

A year ago today (trust me, I counted) we started this “secret blog” which now a year later isn’t such a secret anymore, not to the thousands of visitors we get or the hundreds of commenters who comment on every post and not even to most people in my real life now. In fact more often than not I’m now introduced to people I don’t know with “Hi X, this is Moon* she runs a “famous” Twilight blog!” Uh, well, wham, bam, thank you ma’m. Not such a secret anymore I dare say!

Remember our very first layout EVER?!

People ask me why I don’t talk more about the blogs in my real life and it would be easy to say it’s embarrassing I write a blog every day about Twilight and Rob but truthfully I can’t be embarrassed anymore about a blog that’s become part of the fandom in a real and lasting way. I can’t be embarrassed that people have met their soul mates and friends and long lost bff’s because we write about Twilight. I can’t be embarrassed that things we’ve created: words, phrases, characters, fake names have become part of the lexicon of the Twilight/Rob fandom.  And I definitely can’t be embarrassed that because I write this blog I have found a new lease on life and created a deep and lasting friendship with one of the most wonderful people God ever created. You are a God send UC. Baby Jesus and Rob himself created you just for me in their plaid heaven in the sky.

May the source be with you!

Some people know a little bit of my back story that led up to creating this with you but for those who don’t I worked for an entertainment company for multiple years and worked my way up through the ranks to a position that had all the responsibility of a middle woman and none of the perks of an upper level executive. I regularly contemplated crashing my german made car into the free way underpass on the way to work every morning. Every Sunday night (or really just any day ending in Y) I would wake up with panic attacks that would leave me paralyzed in my bed. I would come home from work and go straight to bed at 7Pm until I had to get up and do it all again the next day. To say all of these things were unhealthy would be an understatement.

And then I found Twilight (cue choir of Angels) or rather it found me.
