Moon & I were talking yesterday about our “plans” now that Twilight is winding down. What do we want to talk about still? What haven’t we shared? What is there left to do that we said we always would and never did?
And we got sad. We knew this day was coming, but it seems to have snuck up on us.
How did we attend our last Twilight premiere? Did Jackson really end his Twilight red-carpet run looking finneee? Did we actually NOT get our hug from Big Daddy Lautner? Are Rob’s teeth REALLY that yellow?
But as much as we hate it, our time at LTT is coming to a close. This isn’t good-bye, yet (and it never truly will be, you can’t escape us– the fun has been happening over at http://thats-normal.com. Have you been over there yet?) but it is a good time to reminisce and to sing “We are the Rob” around our virtual campfire one last time.
And that’s where you come in.
We need your help. We want to collect YOUR Twilight stories. How has Twilight changed your life? Or what has our little LTT community in the fandom meant to you? Write us your very last “Letter to Twilight”
Send us your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “#RIPTwilight.” It can be as short as you want (just a sentence or two? Cool) Or as long as 500 words. Include a picture if you can and your commenter name.
We can’t wait to read your last Letter to Twilight & share a few others we’re collecting along the way.
UC & Moon
PS: Forgot to tell you we posed in “The Meadow” at the after-party after the Breaking Dawn part 2 Premiere. #thatsnormal
That’s right- this is Part 1 of 2 of our EPIC story from our amazing #RIPTwilight week together. We wish more than anything we could have taken you with us, shrunk you down a little bit and carried you in our pockets on every adventure we had together. You’d be pocket-sized LTTers. We’d even let each of you have a moment alone with Pocket Edward in our purses if that’s your thing. Some of you could even choose Pocket Bella and we wouldn’t even bat an eye. But alas most of you weren’t there with us and so we’ll do our best to share every detail we can so it feels like you were!
I (UC) flew into LA on Friday evening. After big hugs with some of the OG LTTers we had dinner & headed on over to Tent City to catch up on what was going down there.
Turns out not much. They were watching New Moon on the Big Screen at LA Live & as if God was welcoming us there the scene that was playing as we walked through security was the one when Kristen says “They’re NOT Bears!”
I found a sign that was begging to be leg-hitched
This sign was amazing:
And all the ROBSTEN signs:
It was basically a 2nd-hand embarrassment dream come true.
Then a HERD of Twilight fans went running because they heard a rumor that a Twi-cast member MAYBE was there. There was no cast member, and if herds like that happened often during the weekend I’m SHOCKED no one was killed. Angry/cold/Annoyed Twilight fans should be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. (of course none of the amazing “camping” LTTers were ever angry/cold/annoyed*)
On Saturday we headed back to tent city for the concert for the campers. A few people from the soundtrack performed like: A boy and his kite (Great song!), Anya Marina (YEP. HER), Paul McDonald and Rosalie Hale (I mean Nikki Reed) and Christina Perri.
Jackson MC’d and if you remember us complaining about how TERRIBLE Charlie Bewley did last year, you’ll know this a good thing. There is a DEF a career for Jackson hosting a show like “America’s Funniest Home Videos” if this acting thing doesn’t work out. He did a great job.
Eventually Ashley Greene joined him and they were all cute Alice-and-Jaspery together:
Christina was my favorite because she is a major Twi-hard. She was wearing this pretty red jacket while singing her first song (or two)
and then right before she sang the song that brings us ALL to tears (especially if you’ve seen BD part 2 already!) “A Thousand Years” she took off her jacket and revealed a Twilight T-shirt like the huge Twi-dork she is:
ALSO she apparently has A Twilight tattoo that says “bitten” on her wrist. Way to keep it classy Christina!
Apparently this was Nikki Reed’s first time performing in public, something she said over and over again. Then she cried. AND had to sit while singing and everyone was soooo sympathetic. She sang. She did fine. Then she sang with her husband and at the end they shared a mic and we threw up in our mouths a little bit.
Sidenote: I think Nikki Reed is genuinely grateful for her Twilight experience & how her life has changed as a result. But she says it so often and with SO MUCH EMOTION that it seems fake. Also we liked her jacket. End Sidenote.
During the concert we saw the most EPIC Buttcrack of all time. I have picture proof and everything but…. for reasons I cannot discuss I cannot post it. But it’s like Buttcrack Santa sent us a gift in his absence. Imagine a chilly California day. You’re in California so you expect it to be warm so you’re not dressed appropriately. Then imagine your buttcrack showing SO much and somehow you DON’T notice despite the cold day and the inappropriate-for-the-weather clothing. Seems impossible, right? WRONG. It was possible. I saw it with my own two eyes. Buttcrack Santa gifted us this.
Then the BIG SURPRISE was revealed when Stephenie Meyer came on stage to talk to the fans (as much as a “BIG SURPRISE” can be when you notice a huge-ass card on the side of the stage that says “DEAR STEPHENIE” in big letters inside…. I don’t know who else noticed, but I kinda figured that was coming!) She said some sweet stuff and then ran the hardest Twilight trivia of all time- which people actually PASSED. And those who got correct answers got to dine with her that evening. Pretty fun idea & I am either the worst or best Twilight fan for not knowing the answers. I’m not sure. (but I think best…)
“What was I wearing to bed the night I dreamed of Edward Cullen?”
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
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!)
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 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?
PS: If you know– don’t give it away!
