Happy Valentine's Day!

I have posted my entries from the TL Love Letter Contest. I didn't write one for Edward and Bella, I just couldn't find an angle on their relationship that I felt like hadn't been touched on. We have four whole books (and 12 glorious chapters) about them, so I feel like so much of their story is already told. In comparison, we know very little about the relationships between the other three Cullen couples, so I wrote letters for those three.
These letters are my own creations. If you like them, I'd love to know. You may even link them if you like, but PLEASE do not do so without crediting me.

The Danger Magnet has posted a Valentine wish for every Twilight fan, no matter your favorite character.

NewMoonMovie.org has Rob wishing Patty a Happy Valentine's Day.

And of course, Rob fans can find plenty to swoon over at ROBsessed.

You also have to see Jacob and Edward in yarn...check it out here.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Emmett and Rosalie

To My Monkey Man,

Another Valentine’s Day is upon us. I have lost track of just exactly how many we’ve celebrated over the years. And of course, those celebrations have varied greatly. Sometimes we’ve been newlyweds, sometimes high school sweethearts, but always together. Until the day I saw you, I thought there was nothing worse in this world than what I had already suffered. But in that moment, I realized that I was wrong. Nothing seemed more horrid to me than the thought of watching you die. So ironic, the life I never would have chosen for myself, I so quickly chose for you when the alternative was a life without you.
I wonder if that was selfish of me. In saving you, I condemned you. Whatever my initial motive, it is not a decision I would change. At that point in my life, you became the only thing more important to me than me, and you’ve stayed that way. You treat me like a queen, Emmett. You indulge my whims, you grant my every wish. I certainly wouldn’t want to spend this eternity as anything less than your wife. Besides, who else could I break houses with?

I love you Emmett,

Your Rose

Alice and Jasper

To My Beloved,

As I sit here, eagerly anticipating your arrival, I find that I can think of nothing else. Your face was the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes. I know nothing of my life, nothing of who I was, but I know you. Although I cannot remember my past, I know that you are my future. I cannot wait for that wonderful moment when our eyes first meet, when you first speak my name. For in that moment, and not a second before, this new life will truly begin for me. I can only imagine what the future holds for us, but I do know that we will encounter it together. I am ready, and I am waiting. Please hurry, Love.

Yours Eternally,

Alice

Carlisle and Esme

My Dearest Carlisle,

It is difficult for me to recall a time before I knew you. To remember a time when you didn’t mean so very much to me. You captured my attention so thoroughly at our first meeting that you never left my mind. I never forgot you, not for a single moment. You were in my dreams each night. No man I ever met could measure up to you.
When we first met, my darling, you mended my broken leg. So many years later, when you changed me, you mended my broken heart. I had wanted so much from life, and had received none of it. By changing me, you have given me things that my old life never could. You have given me true love. You have given me a beautiful family. You have given me the very best of all that life has to offer. You have given me that precious, most elusive of all gifts. You, sweet Carlisle, are my very own happy ending.

Yours Forever,

Esme

'Twilight' Parody - By

Yes, Even More VF Outtakes

I'm with Tierra, release these as a book. In fact, the sentiment was echoed at ROBsessed today as well.
Thanks to Everglow for posting these. They have several of the other outtakes in wonderful high quality.

Kellan at Street Fighter IV Premiere

You know, it's such a shame those gorgeous blue eyes are hidden behind contacts in Twilight. I have a soft spot for blue eyes, just ask my hubby. You can see the rest of the pics at Intoxicating Scent Gallery.

2 New Stills - Movie Edward

Beautiful!

A Peek inside Hardwicke's book

I'm sure by know you all have heard about Catherine Hardwicke's book that's coming out on March 17. It's being featured in this week's EW, including another Rob and Kristen cover, and on MTV Blogs, as reported on ROBsessed.
The two pages from the book that are viewable online.

The book lays out the casting requirements for Edward Cullen...
  • Pale Skin
  • Looks like he is 17
  • Great actor
  • Great chemistry with Kristen
  • Best looking guy in the world
Another notation reads...
“As Bella falls in love, she starts to dress a little more feminine – floral
prints, more form-fitting, etc.”
Granted, there was room to move toward the floral and feminine side, but I don't think it gets much more form-fitting than it was in the beginning of the movie. Just my opinion of course.

It also bugs me that MTV refers to "RPattz's new beard" in their article title. Hello? How many months old is that picture? Larry is usually more on top of things than that. Also in the comments someone says "Yay, he got his hair back" and "I hope he ditches the beard for New Moon." Am I the only one who finds both of those comments clueless and annoying? Sorry, I've not had much sleep and it's showing in my attitude...LOL.

ROBsessed

Again, I'm still trying to catch up. I first found out ROBsessed from TwiCrack Addict. I try, not always successfully, to walk that fine line between a heavy does of Rob on my Twilight blog, and a Rob blog with a healthy dose of Twilight...lol. It's nice to have indulgence of another Rob devoted site. It's certainly among my favorites. Here are some of my favorites from this post, which I highly recommend you check out.


This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie because it's Edward just acting like a boy in love. He's not trying to hide anything in this scene, he's just being himself, happy, excited and just crazy about Bella.

This smile...that is all I have to say.

New Moon Poster Contest

New Moon Movie.org has now posted the posters on their website and opened up the voting. There are so many awesome designs to choose from. I particularly liked these so I'm posting them here. Head on over, check them all out and cast your vote.

This one is Sarah-A. I love the visual of this one. The single ruffled tulip, Edward walking away, that crushing tag line. I really love this one.

This one is Vanessa-B. I absolutely love the tag line on this one. How creative. The visuals are really great, too.

This one is Kayla-A. The visual on this one is just breathtaking. This is one I'd love to have up on my wall. It's just gorgeous.

This one is CarlosAdrian-C. I barely have words for this one. Wow, it conveys every bit of the heartbreak of New Moon. It causes me physical pain just to look at it. I am going to need SO many tissues to make it through this movie.
So there are my four favorites. I am really glad that I'm not having to judge these. There are just so many wonderful ones. The Twilight fan base is such a talented group!

Oh Puhleeeze!

I am posting this wonderful picture of Rob for you to look at while reading this ridiculousness. I read this on TwiCrack Addict last night and was simply nauseated. Paris Hilton appears to have a thing for Rob. The following quote is from E!Online.
Watch out, Robert Pattinson!

It sounds like Paris Hilton wouldn't mind
sinking her teeth into you.

"I just saw Twilight last night for the first time, and I have to say that I think Rob is a beautiful man and an amazing actor," Hilton gushed to us at Cash Money Records' Lil Wayne party. "He's fabulous!"

Yes, Hilton realizes she's a little a late to the Twilight game...

"Now I understand all the hype," she explained. "I just didn't get it before, but now it all makes sense. I really enjoyed the movie and loved watching Rob in it."

I believe I speak for 99.99999% of Rob's fans in saying to her...No thanks, move along. We ALL know that Rob can do SO much better! Despite what he says he believes, there are plenty of volunteers that are not 12 or over 35!

Happy Birthday Taylor!

Taylor is 17 today. I can't wait to see him reprise his role of Jacob in New Moon!

Dear Edward, I am SO sorry

Had I known what danger was lurking, I never would have left you on the couch alone. Who would have thought that my own flesh and blood could do this to you. Please forgive him for mangling you and flying you around the living room like an airplane. He is only two after all...Old enough to wreak this kind of havoc, but too young to understand your awesomeness.
I promise, you'll understand this more when Renesmee comes along.

I need to catch up!

Wow, I take a day off from what seems to be a slow news week and I come back SO far behind! I took some time to work on my entries for the Twilight Lexicon Love Letters contest. I got them in last night with 30 minutes to spare! I may post them here on Valentine's Day, if I get my nerve up...lol. I was stressed out just sending them in.

Anyway, through the day today I'm going to attempt to get caught up. There's this little person in my house who is requiring extra attention today, and I don't mean my Pocket Edward. Although, as you'll see in one of my posts, I owe him some extra attention too in order to make up for what happened to him yesterday when my toddler played with him. I should have learned more from Lauren's warnings about what can happen when Edward is left unattended.

New Kellan Photos

Lion and Lamb Love has posted a new photo shoot with Kellan Lutz. While I'm always glad to see new Kellan shots, I can only imagine how good these would be without the watermark going right across his face... I'd really love to be able to see his eyes in this one
This one's better
And at least you can see his face in this one
You can see the rest of the shoot at Lion and Lamb Love.
