Hey LTTers,

It’s true– it’s really me. You thought you’d never see us post over here again & I thought I’d never sign off as UnintendeChoice again (except in every email I will send to Moon from now until eternity, of course) but alas, I just can’t quit you.

Ain’t No Lie Baby, Bye Bye Bye

**Read the finale letter at 12PM EST.**
***If you’re a true sadist like me, I included some music at the end to listen to while reading*** 


Dear Twilight-

It’s weird to be writing my last official letter to you after four years of a near contant stream of crazy, stupid, and awesome. While writing a different letter a few days ago I was searching for some particular pictures and ran across so many old, epic posts, that I sent UC an email titled “WE DID THIS SHIT!!” and then I just put a ton of links of us posing for pictures with people like Sam Bradley and the Bananager and stories from Twicons and a a little fanfic I wrote called Inside Our Home. YEA, we did do all. that. shit! And it was fun. A LOT of fun!

The last fours years have taught me so much about myself that I never knew was possible. You know how they say to make a habit you have to do something consistently for 30 days? Try writing something “creative” (I’ll use quote marks here because they weren’t ALL great!) EVERY DAY for almost 800 days and not learning something about yourself. Impossible! Even when I had bad days or off days I knew there were people out there who would want to read a letter the next morning no matter what. I learned that there were people who the only time they got to laugh during the day was at our site, I learned that people go through terrible things yet life moves on and sometimes Twilight or a couple of girls can help you get through it. Talk about motivation! Talk about life lessons.

The ship that launched a thousand blogs.

Things I’ve Learned:

  • Just when I think I’m done I need to proof about 20 more times (yes, I love typos)
  • I can blog in a stupor at 3AM from a friends computer after I vaguely tell him I have a “deadline” for a secret blog he knows nothing about
  • Some people are SUPER amazing and awesome and treat you like family even if you’ve never met
  • Some people are super mean and terrible and will Tweet about you from the same room instead of saying mean things to your face
  • Twilight really does bring people together
  • Krisbians will NEVER understand us
  • Once someone finds out you blog about Twilight, they will tell EVERYONE
  • Everyone is secretly (or not so secretly) fascinated by Twilight
  • When you’re out of ideas or need a one liner UC is always a text or instant message away with a home run. She hits a lot of home runs. Though she probably doesn’t know what sport a home run comes from.

These girls

I’ve learned a lot in the last four years, but just like Victoria in the films I’ve changed a lot as well. Ok, maybe I haven’t become a totally different person in a heinous  red wig, but you get the point. In the last four years we’ve been writing letters…

  • I’ve lived in 2 houses
  • I’ve had about 4 different jobs
  • I’ve traveled to 6 countries outside of the states
  • I’ve covered 2 Twilight red carpet premieres
  • I’ve interviewed Stephenie Meyer and actually said the words “Fuck, Kill or Marry” to her while others stared in horror
  • I’ve gained too many friends to count
  • I’ve re-discovered 1 unbelievable best friend and business partner

.
UC once said that we could’ve been halfway through schooling to become doctors if we’d decided to apply ourselves to studying medicine instead of studying what hat Robert Pattinson wore to a bar the previous night. To that I say BORING!!! I’ll let the doctors do what they do best and I’ll stick to photoshopping Taylor’s face onto an alpaca. Cause that is totally normal. So who knows what will happen in the next four years, maybe Kit Harrington will tell us he needs to use the bathroom at a red carpet event or Ryan Gosling will agree to our polygamist lifestyle contract we created. Who knows, but one thing’s for sure, I want UC involved.
.

We did it our way

After we started LTT and LTR UC and I would have regular discussions about how we could play with “the big kids” and get invited to special stuff and gain tons of readers. Every time we’d come to the conclusion that none of that was worth it if we couldn’t continue writing the blogs our way. I’m so glad we stuck to our guns and talked about Twilight  our way because it ended up turning out exactly how we wanted it to, it just took a little longer. But it was SO worth it. A big thank you goes out to each and every reader and follower we’ve had along the way for sticking with us and proving that what we were saying wasn’t totally crazy and that there were more Twilight fans out there who were just like us and wanted to be represented like we did. I hope we did you proud.
.

This was the day I knew…

UC – You told me you cried writing your name for the “last” time and I laughed. Well, I just wrote your name and started crying, so I guess we’re even. And I guess it’s finally hitting me. After four years I don’t think we have anything left unsaid on the subject but I want you to know you’re amazing and talented and special and a heck of a business partner. Really, without you pushing me sometimes things wouldn’t get done. I appreciate that about you and I appreciate that we both recognize our strengths and weaknesses and have pushed each other to shine in our strengths rather than try to be something we’re not. People have asked me how we’ve made it work when so many partnerships fail and I think it really comes down to just that, we both know what we do best and we do it. There’s no ego or passive aggressive BS, just two friends doing something they really love together. Who would have thunk it? We’ve seen, done and heard a lot of crazy shit in the past four years and I knew we were meant to be because we’d ALWAYS be on the same page about it. Thank you for getting me and getting us and having the same vision for this blog as I did. Now go wipe your eyes, we have another blog to blow up.
.
So yes, Twilight, we came, we saw, we laughed and WE DID THIS SHIT. It’s been a mind blowing four years that I don’t think I’ll fully comprehend for many years to come.

Thank you for everything.
XOXO
Themoonisdown

PS See you at That’s Normal!

These guys

PPS A HUGE HUGE special hug and thank you to all those who have contributed over the years by sending in letters, commenting, tweeting, giving us ideas and generally just being supportive. We couldn’t have done it without you. To the LTT family – White Yorkie, The Font, Brooke and Mr. Choice. To all those past and present who have kept the forum lively and working- JodieO, Zephyr, KelBel, Kristin, Jena and Dancing Echoes. To our friends at Summit- Ryan, Matt, Ramzy, Nancy and Jack, thanks for accepting us and trusting our form of Twilight love. To Rob. Why not? To Meghan, there are 24 usable hours in the day. Someday I’ll use them all, like you. To the Twilight family of sites and Bitchin’ Bloggers: Will, Elena, Gozde, Lauren, Erin, Abbey, Allison, Andrew, Kaleb, Laura, Matt, Heidi, Lori, Jen, Kimmy, Michelle, Kate and Patty! You’ve been invaluable resources and most of all good friends! To my SoCal friends who happen to love Twilight, thank you for doing all that stuff with me. To our Twilight cast pals- Thanks for acting like we’re not crazy (we are). And an even bigger thank you to Stephenie Meyer for getting us started and for helping provide the amazing content we spent four years writing about. Thank you for getting us. Thank you for Edward and Bella and Jacob. Thank you for being the reason UC and I reunited. And really, the offer still stands. If you need a place to escape and a computer… the closet is open.

#RIPTwilight – Your Stories & an anniversary

Blow one out for LTT

Dear LTTers,

Happy Anniversary! Yes, today is our FOUR YEAR ANNIVERSARY. Four years ago today we decided to start writing Letters to a little Book/Film series called Twilight and my how the days have (not) flown. We’ve been sharing pictures and photos all week from you guys and what the last four years and Twilight has meant to you. I bet you were expecting something grand today, no? Weeeellll you know how on those years your birthday lands in the middle of the week or on a day you have to work, so you decide to celebrate later? Well, we’re going to do that. On Monday we’ll post our letters and stand around a virtual campfire and sings “Friends” while the embers fade.

Until then we’ll let you take it away…

How LTT kept us from becoming the dreaded lame soccer mom.

#RIPtwilight: LTT better than botox

Snowwhitedrifted: Like a good time machine, or a sparkly Vampire, LTT made me younger. It made me 21… forever. Wait. Am I thinking about shopping again? Anyway. Reading LTT and the comments introduced me to many new terms I hadn’t been familiar
with: FanFiction, The Shocker, Vampgasms, VILF, DILF, folkster, angsty mumblish, and my favorite, Jorts. I joined Twitter, I starting blogging with my LTT twin, East Coast Stacey. I discovered music that I fell in love with. How had I not heard of Sia pre Twi? These were all things that my circle of friends, mostly “new moms” just didn’t chat about. You guys filled my, “but I still feel edgy and snarky, where’s my outlet? I don’t want to discuss Pottery Barn Kids!” need. Anyway. So now it’s all coming to a close and I fear I will return to my true age. Will #RIPTwilight mean I have to turn back into a 38 year old? Say it isn’t so. I don’t wanna give up my Dead Weather downloads and Modcloth purchases. I don’t want a mom bob and a Christmas sweater. Please, #thatsNormal, keep me out of Chicos and away from the mini vans.

EC Stacey: Oh LTT/Twilight…you saved me from the crippling new mommy syndrome. Instead of morphing into a pastels and pearl wearing future soccer mom, I felt the power to continue wearing band tee shirts and have my babies not only listen to Bombay Bicycle Club (thanks Eclipse Soundtrack) instead of The Wiggles, but listen to my daughter tell her daddy, “Mommy loves Edward.” I am sure you can imagine that awkward conversation. Through LTT, I met so many wonderful new friends like Team Seth, TJE, RobsFuture Mate, my cosmic twin Snowwhitedrifted…to name only a few.

Not too mention, how cool is to meet one of your now closest friends over at LTT? Snowwhitedrifted and I are so alike it’s scary. We really need to update Talk Supe. Hmm…
SWD: We do, we do. I just started watching Once Upon a Time… that’s supe-y isn’t it? #tangent

EC: Moon and UC…thank you for the laughs, the fun and helping me rediscover my love of writing. I will be forever grateful!

SWD: Yes, Moon and UC, I truly enjoyed this time and helping out with the LTT store. It’s been such a blast to see the snark on garments.

Slovenia Exists

I remember meeting JellyBeanRainbow for the first time & when I asked her to repeat where she said she was from she told me, “Slovenia exists. It’s a real country.” I’ll never forget that. And when I tell people I have a friend in Slovenia & they give me that “What are you talking about” look, I repeat JBR’s words “Slovenia Exists.” I’m so glad it does because it brought us a great friend- one that, despite living across the world, I actually see more often than my college roommates….

Dear LTT/LTR headquarters,

this is my fourth try. It doesn’t matter how I start my letter, it ends as a thanksgiving letter. Because I am so so so thankful for Twilight and you, UC and Moon. I’m so glad I get to meet you in real life and get to know you a little. You are two of the nicest, warmest, smartest people I ever met and even if I think of you as

friends, I’m still a little starstruck in your presence.

It was probably a coincidence that I found this particular blog when researching everything Twilight and everything Rob, but I’m so glad I did. You literally changed my life. Through you I met so many interesting people, in real life and in comments section. Through you I kept being in touch with popular culture, whether it’s JustinBieber or Hunger Games or ComiCon or GingerSnaps. Because of you I opened many social media accounts and entered the modern age. I might have discovered Twilight books and movies by myself, but our not so little community made them so much fun.

And last but not least, I made real life friendships that will last forever ( insert Twilight font here).

Love, JellyBeanRainbow

We got her

Dear LTT,

I found Twilight late in the summer of 2008 after it being practically forced upon me by a friend. Like everyone else here on LTT, I was immediately fell under its spell. Hard. After reading each book in record time, causing my husband to become a bit frightened and a tad bit mad that I was “ignoring” him and the kids, I scoured the interwebs for more information. With the excitement of Twilight coming into movie form and Stephenie updating her site somewhat regularly, I was sated with new information. But after a while it wasn’t enough and I realized many fans were, well, kinda (read: holy freaking) crazy and I only had one RL friend who really “got it”. I wanted to interact with others who were so inexplicably and irrevocably in love with this story, but the commenter’s on many of the sites quite frightened me.

I believe it was the post I read on newmoonmovie.org that you had done with them speculating Kristen’s alleged baby bump in the summer of 2009 that brought me to you (or at least it was this post that had me loyally checking your site on a daily basis thenceforth). There were women who are hilariously funny and aren’t over-crazed (in a non-Normal way) and too serious about their deep love of Twilight were they flip out on one another if you don’t have the same opinion or “Team”? I wanted to hug you!!

By February 2010 while I was going stir crazy being cooped up in my house, recovering from a really bad accident, I finally broke down and commented for the first time coming out of my lurkedom status (it was a big thing to me, I mean, come on, commenting on a Twilight site? The stigma). But everyone here was really welcoming, even when I came on too strong with my excitement of commenting after a month of daily solitude and/or my comments/joke/sarcasm didn’t make sense due to my injuries and I was so glad I had. By April I’d written my first letter to you which, admittedly, I got total fangirly excited when you told me you were going to post it. I’ve since frequented LTT’s comments and done the occasional “guest post” letter. But from the moment I first commented, LTT had become more than just site I liked to check. It became a place where I could forget the horrible stuff I was going through with recovery and just laugh with women (and unicorns) who know what it’s like to have this love of this story, (few of whom have become real online friends and a couple of whom I almost actually met) and remained there for me for the next few years while my struggle continued. Sure, my husband was/is phenomenal and my kids too with all this recovery, but their support was different… with you guys I could escape it all and just laugh and forget about all the crap that was hard to deal with. Twilight and LTT has been my much needed sanity break these past few years

There are many things I could mention that I loved about the site or LTTs infamous terms, posts or jokes. Or how without Twilight, LTT and/or the people who frequent the site I wouldn’t have done/experienced/thought/found/known (fill in the blank)…. but that would take forever and only Edward has that kind of time. :) Just know that even though this is THE END, there will still be times where I’ll smile or laugh to myself with my own little private joke I know no outsider would get; like when I get an iced coffee and notice I have a red straw and a clear cup and take a picture because it makes me laugh…

“Not Clear Rosalie”

when I go to the zoo and find the spider monkey exhibit hilarious…

“Hold on tight Spider Monkey!”

when I keep staring at the hostess at IHOP and it’s not because I want to be fake lesbians with her….

“Why am I covered in feathers?”

or when I giggle at and snap a picture a dog-lovers car bumper magnet…

“I wonder if this means they’re Team Jacob…?”

and I’ll think of you and know that you would smile or laugh too.

Thanks for all the much needed laughter and friendship,

Team Jacob Edward

 

Happy Anniversary Yall!
Moon & UC

PS Try to get that Friends song out of your head now… HAAHAHA!

#RIPTwilight – Your Stories Day 3

Dear LTT-ers,
Here we go again… I’ve been avoiding these for the last few days… pretty much since the last time I saw Breaking Dawn Pt 2 (without LTT people/UC) made me cry the most. WAAAAAH. Ok, let’s get on with it. Before we jump into your stories I wanted to share one of my own..
.
The LA/OC Twilight fans/chapter of LTT have been some of the best friends I could ask for. Who else can you call up at 10PM and suggest seeing a show of a terrible band or going to a certain bar “JUST BECAUSE” and they totally get it and meet you there and then act like everything is totally normal? Yup, only your Twilight friends. Since UC and I don’t live in the same city we each have our own band of Twi pals who we’ve done unspeakable things with from grinding with the Bananager to posing with Bobby Long in front of a dumpster to creating a sign with a mullet on it and then taking it to the Runaways premiere. Without these people we wouldn’t have a. had much to blog about b. known how to cope with our Twilight tendencies c. lived!



Remember the red ribbons guys?! Yea, our barely concealed identity worked for a few years and guaranteed we could sort of make fools of ourselves and no one would REALLY know. Now, we just make fools of ourselves sans ribbon (we’re too lazy) when we can pull our old asses out of bed at 10PM to go do something Twi-related. We had some amazing and some regrettable times but I won’t forget one. Now, you better still pick up the phone when I call at 10PM LA ladies! You never know what trouble we’ll get ourselves into now.
.
And now a note from your guys…
.

From Proselyte3–

It is with MUCH WOE that I pen my #RIPTwilight letter to LTT/LTR after first finding you in the spring of 2009. You don’t even know, YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW.  And, I’m crying…( stupid, stupid, stupid!!!! )
.

I remember when I found you, I went back and read all the old posts.  I finally began commenting after awhile, and you all were my morning coffee routine every day for a very long time.  And it was during a period of time that I truly needed an outlet.  I had never been obsessed with a book series, an actor, or anything really before.  It was frenetic, exhilarating, oddly motivating and special.  I’m glad now that I couldn’t channel the intensity into something with structure.  Now that it’s all ending, it brings me happiness to know that my passion was left unchecked and wild.  It was the small bit of freedom I needed, even if it was only in my head…and here (and then Twitter…I blame you all for steering me over there.)
.
I could write pages on what the last four years have meant to me.  So much.  Thank you Girls for that, for everything. I mean it, dang it.
.
Much love to my LTT/LTR chicks.  Special shout-out to the original group!  ::gang sign::
.
Thanks Stephenie for putting your story out there.  Dude.  (ARIZONA REPRESENT!  #Tempe)  <—-I’m old, and I can hash tag wherever I want to girls.
.
Alright, I’m just dragging this out now because I don’t want to say goodbye.
.
About three things I am absolutely positive. First, what happened to the last four years of MY LIFE? Second, there is a part of me, and I don’t know how dominant that part might be, that may or may not still love Twilight. And third, I am unconditionally and irrevocably going to miss this. But, hey…

From Bubs –

Hi Moon and UC

Clearly we all hate Ros now

Firstly I have to start by thanking you both for all the effort you’ve put in to make LTT amazing fun.

I didn’t “discover” these incredible books till 2010. Luckily they were all published by then-although I still think Bella should have chosen Jacob.

I remember finding out about LTT through Stephenie Meyer-it might have been when she mentioned that your site came up with “Jorts” or possibly some other time but it prompted me to visit my good friend Google and I found you. It was like coming “home”-everybody related to how addicted I was. Cosi Bella called me her “Twi Twin” [due to our love of Jacob], Sisterpenguin and I bonded over being Aussies [even though she works in London now] etc. etc.

The movies just added to the fun. I was continually blown away by the level of awareness and intelligence in the comments from the girls and occasionally guys, from all around the world. Yep, Twilight and LTT definitely “crossed cultural boundaries”. Boy, will I miss it. I didn’t always have the time to comment but at least I read them. Some day in the not too distant future I hope to be able to pick up a wine or two and go back to day one of LTT and follow it through. That’s on my bucket list.

I wonder if he has to go to the bathroom…

In October I was lucky enough to win a competition that allowed me to attend a Red Carpet Special Fan Event in Sydney for BD2. Rob was the draw card-it was a cold, wet, windy afternoon. I took my husband [who is one very patient and understanding man] and we waited outdoors, along with other fans [wearing rain ponchos] for Rob to arrive. He was 50 minutes late but when he did, the rain ceased and he was very gracious and attentive to all the fans. Following photos n autographs with him, we were entertained in a venue that was decorated to look like a Vampire Disco. Rob came in, sat down and answered questions put to him by a female journalist for about 20 minutes. We were only a couple of feet away from him and it was like we were at a camp fire –sitting, just chilling, drinking mocktails and listening to Rob, nobody screamed or carried on, although he did have us laughing. As it was all happening I kept thinking …how would the girls at LTR be reacting if they were here. I’m attaching some photos taken on the night.

Yeah, the whole Twi world is “special” but Moon and UC you’re both EXTRA SPECIAL. I’m sending you lots of positive energy, from the other side of the world [I’m big on the Law Of Attraction] and hope it helps you in your future endeavours.

To summarize…LTT means “family” to me and I’m very sad to see it finishing :-[ . Although at least I’m on Facebook with you  .

Blessings to all …

Ros [aka Bubs].

From Luludee –

I can’t say for sure how much Twilight in and of itself has really changed my life, other than that it led me here. This is the first and only fandom that I have been a part of and it has been a BLAST!

I was out of work when I first started reading LTT and LTR (back in’09) and the daily posts were often the highlight of my day, as were the conversations in the comments. Seeing and hearing about your (UC and Moon) friendship growth and the development of other friendships (EC & WC Stacey-s for example) has been truly awesome and inspirational! Reading LTT is such an ingrained part of my online routine, it’s going to be weird without it and I will truly miss and cherish all the laughter I’ve enjoyed here. Had I remained only a lurker/reader all these years, the laughter alone would warrant a thank you, but it’s been so much more than that. You guys have created a special little community here and I’ve been privileged to be a part of it. Thank each and every one of you for falling in love with a sparkly vampire (or the Trinity) and coming here to share some silliness with the rest of us! See you over at That’s Normal!

Irrevocably Yours,

Luludee

P.S. I have a question for you two: I’ve been unable to figure out the meaning behind your screen names and I’m wondering if you would reveal them to us now that we are at the end….assuming they have anything to do with Twilight at all. :)

To answer your great question Luludee — I don’t know if we’ve ever officially written about our pen names or just mentioned them in passing. But have no fear my friends, all will be revealed… this is the end after all!

Moon -
Full Screen name: Themoonisdown
Themoonisdown was a name I’d used before we ever started LTT/LTR and had no other Twilight connection than the word “Moon.” It’s actually the name of one of my favorite albums and songs from once upon a time by a lil band called Further Seems Forever. It is also the name of a novel by John Steinbeck. Not for everyone but enjoy:

The lyrics seem oddly appropriate now.
PS Don’t get me started on how many things I own with Moons on them now!

UC-
Full Screen name: UnintendedChoice
The words “Unintended Choice” are lyrics from a Muse song called “Unintended” and as we all know, the leading lady herself, Stephenie LOVES her some Muse. UC chose this name when we began the blog.

These lyrics also now seem oddly appropriate.

Actually, I’m kinda creeped out by how closely these songs kinda fit our lives and these blogs. So thanks for that Luludee and thanks to Proslyte3 and Bubs for sending in awesome letters! There’s still some time left, if you want to write a little to LTT or Twilight or what this has all meant to you send us an email with the subject “RIPTwilight” and we’ll post as many as we can.

XO,
Themoonisdown

The day I realized there are flaws in Breaking Dawn Part 2

Update: Stephenie Addressed the BD Part 2 Ending on her blog (coincidence, huh?)

While we’ve only spent time gushing over BD part 2 because we thought it was a pretty darn perfect end to a pretty darn perfect saga (I mean…. except for all the things we’ve complained about over the past 4 years…) we have to share a recent letter we got because she’s NOT the only one who noticed this imperfection. This is hard though… I mean complaining about Twilight after all the #RIPTwilight we’ve gone through? Isn’t that like bad-mouthing grandpa soon after his funeral? Oh well, forgive us Grandpa (aka Stephenie & Bill & Buttcrack Santa) Also this contains SPOILERS which at this point if the ending hasn’t been spoiled for you, you must have a much fuller life than I….

Dear Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,

So I’ve started thinking about other aspects of the movie, now that I’m starting to relax and breathe again after that shock of the sight of Carlisle beheaded (oh, right, SPOILER ALERT…. how long until you don’t need to say that any longer? A week? A month? Until it’s out of theaters?).

Breaking Dawn battle scene

SPOILER ALERT: This happens

Anyway, earlier today something dawned on me (albeit, I’m a little disappointed in myself for not realizing this sooner, but, you know, Carlisle, Seth, Jasper DEAD… yeah, that’s a lot to get past) and I’ve decided that we need to sit down and have a chat about Alice. Specifically her visions.

But first, let me get something straight; Alice can’t see werewolves… right? And… Alice can’t see Nessie… correct? And this is true, not just in the books, but in the movies, right?

Yeah. I thought so.

So, why do I ask? Well, I was wondering how is it that Alice would see things about Jacob and Renesmee. Like the fact that they would need passports?

Okay, okay, that one I can see you talking your way out of that it was just a precaution, that she didn’t know, but knew that she had to give the best possible chance of Nessie surviving even if the rest of them were doomed and it was just a slim chance, she was still going to take it. Fine.

alice-jasper

“Are you turned on?” “Yeah… I can see the wolves now…!”

But then, tell me, how did Alice see Jacob and Nessie running away and Jacob slaughtering that vamp chasing them without slowing down his full-on sprint if she can’t see either of them? Because that was part of her vision Aro saw. Or if you’re going to argue that we (the audience) wouldn’t have believed that they would have been able to flee un-chased, or that it made for good dramatic effect and suspense (and then relief knowing they got away safely). Fine.

But how did Alice see the whole fight to Aro’s death if the wolves were there? Didn’t the wolves involvement with the fight in Eclipse against the newborns cause her to go blind? Wouldn’t that mean that Alice wouldn’t have been able to see anything about the standoff with the Volturi the moment that the wolves were involved? Or did Alice work on her ability to see around her blind spots and get really good at it. But then, how did she see Seth dying? Or Leah?

Or was there something that happened when Nessie was born that no longer blinded Alice? Or maybe the weremagic of Jacob imprinting on Renesmee unclouded her vision of both werewolves and half-vamps? Hallelujah! Alice is cured! The link was made between wolf human and vamp and now she could see them all. Maybe it was supposed to have made the movie, but was cut out during editing and was therefore never explained to us that in the movie version, Alice can now see those half-breeds.

That has to be it, because how else could Alice have seen that vision of Edward, Bella, Jacob and Renesmee all together after little Nessie is “all growed up”, assuring Edward know that his whole family would have a happily ever after?

Oh, I’m not complaining. I still think the twist was pure genius and wouldn’t have you change it, nor would I take back the blissfully happy vision Alice has at the end of the film of the 4 of them, the picture of a perfect, happy family.

I’m simply curious.

Mind still blown from BDII,
TeamJacobEdward

Hmmm….. since I’m the world’s worst Twilight fan, did Stephenie ever address how Alice knew Nessie & Jake would need passports in the book? Do we know HOW Alice can suddenly see things where the wolves are involved? Or is this just the magic of Hollywood (and prayers from Stephenie that we all forget about that teeny tiny detail from the books?)

Do you care? Does it matter to you?

PS: In case you wonder what I think… I don’t care. I want to be entertained by a story I love and characters I love. And I was!)
