Twilosophy: Julia Jones / Leah Clearwater is a bad-ass bitch!

*for Eclipse purity/virgins this is a clip from the movie, turn away! Or watch, whatevs! I figure since we’ve gotten like minimal access to anything Eclipse, might as well!*

Don't even make me flip the bitch switch

Dear Julia Jones / Leah Clearwater -

After watching that clip I gotta say I’m even more excited to see you as Leah Clearwater in Eclipse. I usually see Leah as a bitchy, busy body but I think, especially after this clip, I get it now.

Of course we know Leah’s backstory: she was victim to the age ol imprinting switch-a-roo. Ok, so not everyone’s a werewolf with mystical mating DNA, but the situation is a classic tale. Boy likes girl, boy and girl go out, boy meets girl’s friend (cousin in this case) and pulls the ol’ swith-a-roo and leaves girl heartbroken while she has to act semi happy for them while dying on the inside. So sure, I get that that can lead to bitchy behavior especially when you have to be around said couple all the time and even worse in Leah’s case HEAR the thoughts of this boy and all their other mutual friends who know all the dirty details. Ugh, that would s-u-c-k.

But I also think it runs deeper than that for Leah. Having been in that position of being jilted she can understand Jacob probably a little better than all the guys. Jacob too was jilted by Bella after almost having a chance with her but is then forced to stick around and try to take the high road. So Leah knows what Jacob is going through, she’s not just a bitch because she’s bitter about her own life she probably feels a bit like kindred spirits with Jacob on some level.

Yup, look who's in front!

Being a girl who has a bunch of close guy friends and a close brother I can see how even if she doesn’t want to, she feels connected to them on a deep level, not only because she’s part of a pack with them but deep down she probably wants only the best for them and if that means telling a girl who causes nothing but drama and heartache to get lost, than so be it.  Been there and done that and will do it a billion more time if necessary. Besides, I’m sure it’s annoying being the only girl around who has to hear every gross, boy thought they have, so why wouldn’t you tell the girl who causes this mess to scam? Self-preservation is a strong motivator.

Before the whole Renesmee thing happened it seemed like a Leah/Jacob pairing on some level was a foregone conclusion. I mean why were they running around in the woods and having conversations for what seemed like a billion years if they weren’t going to somehow end up together. If not romantic but some sort of “misery loves company” scenario. Instead he ends up with the baby spawn of the girl who broke his heart. Why? So many questions. Why does that happen to Leah and what does that mean for her future? But that’s probably a question for Ms. Meyer herself  or a letter to be sent out into the cosmic void here at LTT. Another day…

However, With just that one line, Julia, you added so many layers to my idea of Leah and makes me want to go re-read all her parts and ponder what seems like one of the most tragic characters in the saga.

Storytime with Moon – Comic Con in review

Dear LTT-ers

As you all know Thursday I was able to attend the 2nd coming of Jesus, aka the New Moon panel at Comic Con and I have a little (ok, it’s quite long) story to share with you! So that means it’s story time with Moon!

Sit back relax grab your poison of choice (mine’s a diet coke as the CC folks learned) and let’s get to it!

XO
Moon

Once the news came out that there would in fact be a New Moon panel and presentation at Comic Con the California LTT/LTR gals KNEW we had to be there, come hell or high water. And trust, there was a lot of hell and a lot of high water. But finally tickets were secured and plans made for several groups of Cali gals to converge on Comic Con last Thursday…

Making up part of the LA/OC group Chelsea and I headed down to San Diego Wednesday afternoon to meet up with our SD gals to plot, plan and scheme how we would make this happen. By Wednesday morning there were already reports of 100-ish Twihards in line and by the time we reached San Diego that evening a reported 500 were now in line. So we jumped in the car with VickyB and headed down to scope out our competition…

The sign pointed us towards heaven on earth

tentcity
An impromptu little tent city of Twihards set up on the outside of Hall H. Since we knew there was no point in waiting in line over night at this point and in all honesty we didn’t want to (we just wanted to be in the room not in the front row), we honked and continued on in search of food and good times

hustler
Since we were going to be seeing Rob the next day we first stopped off to get some slutty outfits for our Comic Con Preparedness Kits. No Cullen crest or Team Jacob shirts for us. It was hooker lucite heels, cootchie cutter shorts and whips that we were looking for!

Let me tell you the rest of the story… after the cut!
