The Time has come #RIPTwilight (and we need your help)

Dear LTTers,

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 letterstotwilight@gmail.com 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.

Love,
UC & Moon

PS: Forgot to tell you we posed in “The Meadow” at the after-party after the Breaking Dawn part 2 Premiere. #thatsnormal

#RIPTwilight: The End is (far too) near

Dear LTT,

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

xoxo,
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!)

Stephenie Meyer: After Twilight

Dear Stephenie Meyer,

I’ve been thinking a lot about THE END and having some sads. I mean… it’s almost THE END. Not the end of filming a movie. Not the end of another film. THE END. FINITE. FINAL.

This is actually YOUR bedroom, right?

Just in case you forgot I thought I’d remind you. And occasionally I’ve thought beyond “What am I going to DO with my life” and thought about others. Others like you. I’ve thought about what you must be thinking (is it “OVER IT!” or “THE END? HOW IS THIS THE END?” ?) Are you too busy with last minute details that it hasn’t started to hit you yet (Like what shade of lipstick to wear the night of the 12th perhaps? Priorities!) Or have you been hiding at home bursting into tears every time you round the corner of your home and see another thing to remind you of Twilight (your walls ARE full of Twi-paraphenelia right?)

But beyond the now I’ve been thinking about what life will be like for you AFTER 11/16/2012. Will you take a big cruise? (back to sandals Jamica where you and Pancho celebrated your honeymoon?) Will you invest  in Kleenex Tissues because you bought out the stock of your local CVS AND Walgreens because of your tears? Will we ever see you again? (don’t say no)

Moon & I put our heads together & came up with some obvious things we think you’ll be doing:

Stephenie Meyer: After Twilight

Continue on your quest for discovering super hot dudes to put in your books turned movies (Robert pattinson, taylor lautner, max irons…)

Guest post on That’s Normal [for real. TN is coming soon. this isn't a joke. even though it seems like it]

Continue to ignore your sons when they ask why Bella and Edward would want to swim naked in the ocean. And what those pages said after they went swimming that you told them you read to them “after they fell asleep”

Continue to try not to giggle every time Pacho suggests having a nacho night with the kids

Annual trip to Forks

Quest to become mayor of Forks. And if they won’t allow you that, at least be crowned Queen of Forks.

Continue to not finish Midnight Sun but imagine all its goodness in your head. And then laugh maniacally.

Weekly conversations with you sister about the details you’ll never write down.

Write a story called “A Business Casual No Vacancy” as your foray into the JK Rowling Fan Fic world

JOIN TWITTER

Jump into Google Hangouts with UC & Moon.

Post more than 3x a year on your website AND come up with a new color scheme! (You might have to start to pay Seth the webmaster though)

Spend your evenings dreaming of new billion-dollar teen franchises. [We volunteer to be your sister this time & read the first edits.]

Answer Catherine Hardwicke’s calls once a year and pretend to listen while she talks about, for the umpteenth time, THE AUDITION VIDEO that she just might release one day.

Make a scrapbook of “Secrets I’ll never tell” from the 5+ crazy years of making movies… include pieces of Rob’s hair you stole… take out containers from the Olive Garden from Taylor… secret videos you have of the Twi jam sessions from the first movie.

And you thought you’d have nothing to do! You’re going to be busy! Start writing those Guest posts for Thats-Normal.com!

See you soon. I’ll be the one holding 10 boxes of tissues at the premiere.

Xo,

UC (and Moon)

WAHHHHHHHH It’s almost over.

Business:

We wanted to tell you about an LTT reader & friend Sadie who along with her 3 sisters started doing GOOD with their love for the Twilight Saga! These gals are collecting donations for the Salvation Army’s Angel tree program in Utah. People who participate can win prizes. Check out their Facebook page for more details!

7 Things I forgot about Breaking Dawn Part 2

Dear LTTers,

DID YOU SEE THE LATEST TV SPOT?

I did. On an actual TV– which actually kinda shocked me. I was watching something highly educational (pretty little liars prob) with Mr. Choice next to me ignoring my “HE’S SO HOT” ‘NO HE’S SO HOT” fights with myself, trying to decide which guy I was into that night when he said “Is this a TWILIGHT trailer?” and I realized it was….one I hadn’t seen. It was Mr. Choice’s FIRST trailer, in fact. And he asked “Is it going to be good?”

Probably. It’s probably going to be good. I mean it BETTER be right? After movies ranging in this order:

1. Terrible but so terrible it was brilliant Twilight
2. Better but still pretty terrible New Moon
3. GOOD but not as good as the book Eclipse
4. THIS IS ACTUALLY A MOVIE Breaking Dawn

#5 better be “HOLY CRAP THIS ISN’T JUST A MOVIE BUT AN EPIC FINALE” good.

So I got thinking about my expectations. We’ve always told you to manage your expectations here at LTT. And I think that’s no different this year, except…. I forget most of what happens in Breaking Dawn Part 2. In fact, until recently I thought it started in Jacob’s perspective– but that already happened in part 1 (was that evident in the movie? I don’t think it was) but the trailer reminded me of some KEY PARTS that I completely forgot were going to happen. Watch with me then we’ll discuss:

1. BELLA IS A VAMPIRE: I know, I know. DUH. How could I FORGET? Well, I did. She’s not a vampire for most of the saga, so it’s easy to forget that for the 2nd half of the last book she is. I see Kristen/Bella in those images and videos. I don’t see a strong, deer-eating super fast runner. (I also don’t see a mother to a 9 year old, but whatever) (VAMP DIARIES SPOILER ALERT: I’m going through the same thing with Elena. I mean… she’s NOT a vampire right? Is this for real? Also do you love how they totally upstaged Twilight and turned Elena first?)

2. ALICE GOES AWAY: For a LONG time. I have a feeling it won’t seem as long in the movie, but in the book that sucked. I was pissed at Alice. I mean, I knew she had something up her sleeve but eventually I couldn’t help but feel like she just left us.

3. CHARLIE IS SUPER DUMB: Remember how dumb Charlie is? I mean, he barely questions it when his daughter is quarantined for months/weeks with this terrible virus.. and then he doesn’t question that she’s very OBVIOUSLY no longer human. And he seems to be okay with the fact that his granddaughter grows a few years every 20 minutes. COP OF THE YEAR AWARD

4. CHARLIE IS A GRANDPA: And I CAN’T WAIT to see how cute that is. He’s an amazing dad (I mean super dumb– read #3) so he’s going to be the best grandpa. I hope he lets Renesmee pull on his ‘stache. (ugh that felt dirty and was not meant to be AT ALL)

5. SEX SCENES IN THE TINY HOUSE: Enough said. A little too much “Fade to sad” for my liking, but my imagination can fill in the blanks. (and these days a little “fade to sad” is okay where ROBSTEN is concerned)

6. NEW VAMPS: I haven’t forgotten about them of course since we’ve been shoving “New Faces Fridays” down your throats for weeks now, but thank GOD we’ll finally be able to remember WHO they are and what role they play. Cause seriously…. I have NO idea who that guy from Pushing Daisies plays…..

7. THE SHIELD: Remember how Edward can’t read Bella’s mind because of that “shield” she has that offers protection? I thought that was pretty cool & will be interesting to see how that is interpreted visually. And also that leads to one of my FAVORITE parts of the entire saga– at the end when Bella lets Edward into her mind finally. I might lose it there guys– it’ll be like Edward being allowed into my mind– seeing how much this whole thing has meant to me over the past 4+ years…. so if you hear sobbing all the way in Omaha.. that’s just me and Moon in LA crying big ol’ tears….

That’s it! 7 things I forgot about Breaking Dawn part 2 that I’m excited to see!

What are you excited about?

Love,
UnintendedChoice

Rereading New Moon – Chapters 1-3

newmooncoverDear LTT-ers,

To prepare for the November 20th release of New Moon I begin rereading the book this week to refresh my memory on the details and such. I mean it’s been since like summer when I read New Moon last and it was time to reach for one of my favorite books in the saga! It’s funny, if you asked my this time last year what was the order of my favorite Twilight books, I definitely wouldn’t have listed New Moon near the top but as with all relationships your tastes and ideas grow and mature with time like some fine Vampire wine (no, seriously there really is Vampire wine. Hot Topic is pissed they didn’t think of it first).

Currently, I’ve read chapters 1-3 (yea super far, I know!) but I’m currently in the chapter “The End” can you blame me?! I HATE this chapter. Stupid Edward… stupid Bella for not chasing his dumb ass. Stupid me for talking to characters in a book.

carlandesme

Here let me examine you with my mouth...

Last night I read chapter 2 “Stitches” aka “Happy Birthday, Jasper’s hungry!” wherein the well meaning Cullen’s throw an ungrateful Bella a birthday party. Even if you hate attention, really what can you complain about? Your boyfriends awesome family LOVES you, throws you an amazing little bash at their “palatial pad” in the forest, buy you gifts, have a cake and multiple plates (even when they don’t eat food) and all for Bella to be surly about. I seriously, don’t GET it. But anyway, we have the infamous papercut moment, Jasper nom nom nom-ing on Bella and then we come to the scene where Carlisle stitches Bella up and gives her some much needed back story on the Volturi and about his decision to change Edward. While he’s stitching her up, Bella comments about how blood doesn’t bother him and how he helps so many people by being a doctor which got me to thinking…. Sure Carlisle may be able to resist the scent of blood after all these years, but patients would most certainly notice his ICE COLD hands! Think about it, when Bella touches Edward’s hand in the car in Twilight it’s one of the major deciding points for her that he’s a Vampire (besides that super helpful book she bought in the Port Angeles bookstore) AND while he’s stitching her up she even notes how cold his hands are. Now imagine if it’s time for your favorite yearly check up and the doctor used his ice cold hands (even IN gloves) to examine you? Now tell me you wouldn’t wonder why was using icicles to check for a hernia and swollen glands?

carlislecullen

Dr. McIcy hands at your service!

And now on to the god awful, gut wrenching “The End” chapter.

Somebody hold me!
Themoonisdown

So are you rereading New Moon to get your in the mood? Or are you refraining in hopes to enjoy it even more and not nit pick? Anyone had a doctor with ice cold hands? Was it Carlisle?

PS tomorrow I’ll be seeing a pre screening of Rob’s movie Remember Me!!! You know the one that’s not due out till next March? Yup, I’ll be seeing it and reporting back here on what I thought, watch our Twitter for details too! (Spoiler free details). I guess I finally know wtf that movie’s about after all!

PPS My good pal Katelin aka the rad girl who let me borrow her copy of Twilight over a year ago attended the press junket in LA this weekend. Read her account of meeting, well, um EVERYONE at her blog: Goregous Footsteps and thank her because without her insistance we wouldn’t all be reading this crap every day! ;)
