This isn’t your typical ‘anti-twilight’ blog… This is yet another email (complete with semi-subtle death threat) from someone asking questions about it that some of you may be asking, yourself. Don’t assume that you know what this blog is about simply because you’ve argued on Stephenie Meyer’s behalf before.

This is the very first post on this blog, from my ‘clueless movie fan’ perspective. It was written on Thanksgiving Day, 2011 – then published in here a few days later, after I could reread it and do some editing. It is hysterically funny and incredibly poignant at the same time – for those of you who can’t see Stephenie Meyer’s amateur sexual fantasy floating around in The Twilight Saga. This post is what those of us who ARE familiar with vampires experienced because of Breaking Dawn’s unbelievable ending; and it may help explain for you why this blog exists. It is where absolutely everything started; and demonstrates my intentions for this blog from the beginning. Believe it or not, they were NOT MEAN.

At first, I didn’t know why things were wrong; I only knew that they were – so I was making excuses for Stephenie Meyer in the beginning, LoL! Really… every single estranged TwiFan that she has, USED to be at least a real semi-fan of hers.

Please be patient. I know that most people who are familiar with this controversy have passionate opinions; but what about the rest of you who are completely clueless? I wrote this so that readers would not have to jump off the page, as much. I recommend reading through once; then going back to read links for more details, later. If you get too angry to keep reading, pause and scroll down to the side link collection. I used to be a clueless person in the world, and then a clueless Twilight Movie Fan for a while, too. You’ll see more about me, below. And please forgive the caps, in places. I don’t see them as shouting as some peeps do. They are simply meant to make those words stand out, and that is all…

This blog is all about the accidental and painful over-obsessions of The Twilight Fanbases
that has CONTINUED with a decade of
worldwide bullying and intentional,
emotionally-harsh attacks
on the hearts & minds of little TwiFangirls (and big ones).

The feelings of obsessed fans are real even if
their obsessions are not - until they drift away.
You all KNOW THIS.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for 15 - 24 year olds in the US.

These are all REAL issues, to name a few - for MILLIONS of people:
Maladaptive Daydreaming


Dissociative Disorder
This one is the worst biggie, and starting
to be considered an EPIDEMIC

Why are the obsessions of young girls important?

Because their feelings are real even if the obsessions are not – until they drift away. Young girls NEED their fairytale ‘escapes’ MUCH MORE than older ones do because they have limited ways to cope with life’s crap (read the comments beneath these neverending, misogynistic tabloid assaults – this one is from January 2016). If you’ve never been forced to endure public high school in the US (or anywhere, probably); or been abused as a child (unfortunately, still a common occurrence) - then of course you can’t possibly relate.

How Did this Blog Change to
Tabloid & Paparazzi Reform

- Yeah, I have some really good reasons beyond
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and their Fans
(Although I’m pretty sure they are enough reason at this point.)

Why Do People Hate Bella Swan and Kristen Stewart?
Believe it or not, this is a very easy question to answer;
and NO it isn’t because she ‘cheated’.

TwiNewsflash: The concerning over-obsessions of young women was the ONLY REASON that Breaking Dawn was forgiven when it was published in 2008. The ONLY people who have defended this story for being written ‘just like it is’ because ‘Stephenie Meyer is a literary genius’ are her YOUNG (and young-at-heart) fans who were used by both the amateur author and her publisher because ‘they weren’t supposed to know any better’ about vampires.

And, these are the fans who get hit & hurt the most by world bullying. It is really crappy of SM and you older ladies to continue letting them believe what they believe about these books - while they ignorantly & arrogantly (in their over-obsessions) deal with all the hate surrounding Twilight that still exists in big, dynamic ways.

Email Excerpt: “Thank you for writing that wonderful blog.. it was heaven sent.. Please someone tell him (this is ‘why the cheating scandal started’, Aug 2012). He just texted me and said he told my mom.. and for me to get some help.. and bye.. please tell him… Everyone is doing this and it’s killing me.. but everyone acts like they don’t know what I’m talking about.. I don’t think I’ve ever needed anything so bad in all my life than for someone to tell him.. I know they are trying to drive me crazy.. and it’s starting to work.. thanks again, was truly a blessing I needed to read very much so.”

Another email excerpt that I hear all the time from all types of fans:
I have tried speaking to my good friend about my obsession and, as with all of my friends,
doesn't like Twilight and totally judged me lol so your feedback means a lot.”

How to Soothe an Intense Twilight / Robsessed / Krisbian / Robsten Obsession

Anti-Twilight Fans could SEE what Stephenie Meyer didn’t MEAN to write;
and Erika didn’t MEAN to write her books ignorantly, either.
Adult women have 50 Shades of obsessive fog to get past before
they can possibly begin to think clearly about this subject.

Why does The Twilight Saga have so many anti-fans? Why are there hardly any male fans? How did Twilight’s infamous obsessions become over-obsessions? Why are so many older women more obsessed than younger ones? Why did the fandom fracture into several various fanbases that fight among themselves? How did we get 50 Shades of Grey out of all this commotion?

I recorded four wildly-ranting videos (this one is my favorite – calling SM out, ha!) over three years ago at the height of my own very unwanted Twilight over-obsession (It’s not like you can unwatch or unread something – or reclaim wasted time). At that point, I was really mad about ‘how I was obsessed’ with this pretty fairytale; and I was mad that Stephenie Meyer had ‘accidentally’ done this to so many other people before me - and didn’t correct any of the dysfunction in her books before she made them into movies.

I actually say this in the second video before I had even heard of 50 Shades of Grey... “It sounds to me like Stephenie has some sort of BDSM fetish, but I don’t even sort of want to think about that right now.” (Video #12 is where you will hear me say this.)

And yet, somehow 50 Shades of Grey (this post is what exactly is wrong with fifty shades) exists as Twilight Fanfiction; and is yet another dysfunctional worldwide ‘phenomenon’?! Do you have any idea how disturbing that is? Not only does it make my skin crawl – it’s just wrong.

There are real amateur literary reasons why Twilight messed with so many people’s heads – especially OLDER women; and we are the ones who get called ‘crazy’ for it - unless we manage to write another dysfunctional (XXX!) blockbuster based on all this negligence…

Did you know that Steph’s publisher didn’t want to publish Breaking Dawn? Did you know that New Moon & Eclipse were not supposed to be in between the 1st & last books? Do you ‘get’ that she didn’t mean to cause so many of her OLDER fans to see Edward Cullen the way they came to see him as Christian Grey? Do you understand that these are the reasons why the world has always &STILL bullies Twilight Fans, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson because of her amateur writing mistakes?

Sick-in-the-head older women had absolutely no right to hijack the pretty fairytale of young girls via Fifty Shades of Grey; and they should care when their daughters are being bullied by the world over it, incessantly.

What’s Wrong with Twilight: Chapter One, First Sight?

The Condensed Version:
The Four Main Complaints of this Blog
against Stephenie Meyer and her ‘professional’ Publishers &
Production Franchise for RARE & irresponsible,
professionally-negligent publishing and movie production.

When the first Twilight movie was being made in 2008; the last book, Breaking Dawn had not been released, yet. Because of this, no one knew at that time that Stephenie Meyer was going to bomb her pretty fairytale into the ground until it was published a few months before the release of the first film.

Extreme chaos & debate surrounded Steph and The Twilight Saga at that time for the exact same reasons that surrounds 50 Shades of Grey - but somehow, she got through it (see side links)...

If 'Midnight Sun' had not been 'accidentally' leaked just prior to the first movie being rushed; AND Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had not BOTH nailed their parts in that first movie - Twilight would have been history.

Stephenie Meyer could have written any 'ol ending for her infamously overly-obsessed fans (and really, that seems like what she did); and they would have lapped it up like honey (and they did – especially the ones who didn’t know any better, couldn’t see what was wrong – or didn’t care, because of fifty Shades of BEDWARD!!

The entire world has done nothing but treat Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson AND their emotionally-invested fans like sh*t, since - and the infighting among Twilight's divided and HATEFUL fanbases is ongoing.

Despite all this, 'feminists' have embraced the latest and greatest dysfunctional character, Christian Grey/Edward Cullen/Prince Charming...

Popular Email Question: Why does Stephenie Meyer need to apologize? Because the world can’t heal from the wounds she has inflicted on it if she doesn’t acknowledge her amateur mistakes and apologize for them. All she has done from the beginning of her controversies is metaphorically flip off her critics. While normally that is exactly what you are supposed to do… In this case, with all the professional exceptions that were made while The Twilight Saga was being published; the amateur author (AND the publisher AND production franchise) really needed to be listening to fans. It is NOT NORMAL for roughly half of your fanbase (much less, the world!) to become so angry with you regarding a casual creative expression.

I am just using this true stuff about SM’s amateur writing to grab your attention – and boy does it grab some of you, ha! Now if we could just get past that part of things… I really could care less about Stephenie Meyer’s or EL James’ many ignorant and irresponsible amateur literary mistakes that caused all this chaos. Believe it or not, I have stuck up for Stephenie Meyer so many times over this issue, it’s ridiculous.

Creative ‘Freedom of Speech’ is DIFFERENT than the illegal type of ‘Freedom of Speech’ that tabloids & paparazzi hide behind.

Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press were meant to create transparency in order to protect the truth about absolutely everything - not provide a way for mean, greedy tabloid liars to make money off of young (and young-at-heart) fans who are practically defenseless against emotional tabloid & paparazzi assaults (not to mention how even more defenseless Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are against them)…

This blog now has but one mission: Tabloid & Paparazzi Reform for all celebrities past & present (Princess Diana, anyone?) and it has been that since July 25, 2012 – the day after the infamous cheating scandal. Oh yeah, I’ve been on their stinky tails from the beginning. It hasn’t even been SORT of fun! I really hope we can all manage to put aside our differences and unite to stick it to them, someday. Tabloids & papz so deserve it!!

I don’t care how long it takes. Aside from having really good reasons other than Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to be concerned for celebrity rights; we fans – no matter which side of the ring we fight on – are getting awfully tired of being manipulated and watching our favorite celebrities being harassed. So many of you do not ‘get’ this; but Robert Pattinson is being attacked and/or used as much as Kristen Stewart in these kinds of stories – no matter ‘how nice’ they seem to be slanted toward him, at times. It is just another way to pour salt on the wounds of their fans by being misogynistic toward both them and Kristen at the same time – using Robert and her anti-fans against their will!!

This is because the world has no respect for Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson or Twilight fans – any version of them; BECAUSE of Stephenie Meyer’s offensive & insulting amateur writing (another reason why she needs to apologize). To the rest of the world, we’re all simply hysterical to bully; just another section of the populace to be targeted and made fun of for profits – via outright assaults and numerous lie upon lie that continues

Boycott all online and print tabloids until they volunteer to reform.



Why Do So Many People Hate Kristen Stewart and/or Bella Swan?
or Why/How did so many of Stephenie Meyer’s OLDER fans become so
‘accidentally’ overly-obsessed with the character of Edward Cullen?
Shortest and most anti-fan & fan-variation-inclusive version that I have written, yet!!
Read it only if you dare… and only if you can be HONEST. ;)

Whatever Happened to the ‘Anti-Twilight Army’
from 2008-2009; and WHY don’t you see their support on this blog?

Stephenie Meyer Knows Why Gossip Rags & Paparazzi won’t leave
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart (or her beloved fans) alone.

That’s why she deserves this blog; and it is why it will not be deleted until either
Steph, her professional cronies and/or her fans do something to fix the situation:

‘They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about,' Stephenie
tells The Times Magazine. ‘If they had the choice, I've no idea if

they'd even do Twilight again. I just don't know.
I think this has all come at a heavy price.'

Ya think, Steph?!!

Robert Pattinson’s Career-Hindering Rover Smear
Based on the Whole Wide World’s Twilight Saga Hate

This movie FLOPPED amidst RARE (for him) GLOWING reviews from movie critics at
film festivals who compared his performance to Leo DiCaprio’s Oscar-Nominated
performance in ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’. Yeah, it’s a HUGE deal!!
This movie would not have tanked without way too much ‘help’ from
tabloid manipulation of Twilight’s huge numbers of anti-fans.

Why the Public Shaming of Kristen Stewart MATTERS to Young Girls
by Nico Lang on Huffington Post

Here’s a splash from Nico’s article: "Trampire:" Why the Public Slut Shaming of Kristen Stewart Matters for Young Women “I don't care if Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders did it in a car, in a bar, in a house or with a mouse. But while I might not be concerned for K-Stew, I am concerned for my younger stepsister who idolizes and worships her....” And this is an update from Nico on Salon: Racist 'Twilight' fans won't stop harassing Robert Pattinson's girlfriend, FKA Twigs

Yeah, Twilight’s still-many hateful and overly-obsessed
fans managed to p*ss all over the debut of the proclaimed

Celebrity Rookie of the Year 2014

Aren’t we sweet?




I have had some really good compliments on my corrective-rewrite of The Twilight Saga from both literary experts and Twilight Fans. It is only a summary, with just the first chapter written as complete to give it the foundation that it should have had (takes 2-3 hours for me to read through it all).

Here is one positive review (sorry, have to scroll down to the comments on this post after the click to read): “I have so very many things to say where to start..... Firstly I love your blog and the rewrite, I felt like you have given the characters depth and a new life. If I were a judge I would totally give you custody! … I am even letting my daughter read it with me because its a good story that is appropriate for kids to read and she LOVES LOVES LOVES IT! Just as much as I do! I think what you have written is loving and responsible to the characters and fans, it is well though out, relevant, and…”

BELIEVE me when I say, I would have MUCH RATHER have LOVED Stephenie Meyer's original Twilight Saga all the way to the bittersweet end. There are not many people on this planet who would have been more PROUD and applauding the loudest for a woman (amateur or not) to have written such a hailed TwiMasterpiece - if Stephenie Meyer had actually done that instead of the embarrassing, barely-edited rough-draft that we got.

This corrective re-write summary is actually very forgiving in many places - at least, where Steph is concerned. I'm sure my anger toward these IRRESPONSIBLE "professional" companies will continue to burn for much longer.

I gave your beautiful fairytale a hell of a shot, sinking MONTHS of my time JUST into researching this subject. (Not counting the months before that when you all had me convinced that it was a WORTHY diversion, ha!)

Between these blogs and the rewrite I have probably written as much as either Steph or Erika have; and I certainly put a lot more thought and creativity (not to mention, knowledge) into it. Just insert either author’s purple prose where applicable while you’re reading, since I didn’t write any – and it is darn near perfect, ha! ;)

As such, you can expect my version of The Twilight Saga to not be XXX. I rewrote Twilight by sticking to the storyline; but I made it believable – really, that was possible. In fact, now that Twilight can be shown as a believable story - it is no longer necessary for Anti-Twilight peeps to continue bullying Twilight Fans just because SM didn’t ‘get’ why she needed to make it believable.

WHY did I take the time to flesh out the character of Bella Swan and Twilight’s vampire (and wolf) storylines? BECAUSE VERY FEW OF YOU OLDER LADIES GIVES A SHIT ABOUT HER (and more importantly, the real Human girl, Kristen Stewart and her millions of young fans) - or ANY of the other Twilight characters, for that matter!

It's EDWARD this and EDWARD that (and sometimes Jacob) - Stephenie BARELY INTRODUCED you to her before you all got hooked on this crap. That's why you can pass this story off, you don't care... You're obsessed about Edward Cullen and could care less about any other character. IF this story had been published for you perverted older brats- Yeah, it would maybe be Ok!

I am NOT talking about you young girls if you're in here reading this - I've heard you talk about Bella and all the other characters. I KNOW you both know and love them, dearly. BUT, those of you who WERE NOT debunked by this storyline (no matter what your age was) SEE these characters differently than so many MORE older ladies do!

Believe it or NOT - Stephenie Meyer and the rest of these women out here (I don't care HOW many of them there are against my ONE voice) are BEING BAD, LoL!

IF we were in college... And the instructor had just given us an assignment to write the first chapter for a novel. IF Stephenie Meyer was a college literary student (which she has been - in FACT, she graduated!); she would probably NOT have gotten an "A" on the first chapter of Twilight - I seriously doubt. I wish a few good English teachers who haven't read the books yet would go through it and grade it - just so we would know, for sure.

I'm not saying that *my* version is a literary marvel - but I have a really good excuse. I have NEVER taken a college writing course much less graduated with a literary degree. If this isn't perfect... Yeah, I know. :)

We make our children do their homework - and dot their "I's" and cross their "T's" - but, WHY didn't this grown adult woman have to?!

I'm going to make you all CARE about Bella and her life, as well as every other character surrounding her - INCLUDING EDWARD - who, it seems to me; you've all just taken under the covers with you to have your way with him like Stephenie Meyer was no doubt doing when she WROTE this stupid saga so ignorantly and irresponsibly...

So when it really comes down to it... YOU robsessed ‘fans’ DON'T even care about Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen, just your sick little "escape"!

The young adult audience that this story was TARGETED FOR - deserved a whole hell of alot better than what they got. THAT is why I rewrote The Twilight Saga... For ALL THOSE former fans who were debunked by Breaking Dawn after it was published; and then abandoned by the arrogant amateur author afterwards.

We KNEW better... and we were EXPECTING better.

AND it IS ALSO for the rest of you... I DARE you; I quadroople-doople DARE you - READ this and tell me you don't care a lot more about Bella at the end of this Chapter One: First Sight rewrite than you did at the end of Stephenie's first one.

You can think whatever you want to about me... But with this, the two things you CAN'T say about me are that *I* don't LOVE this pretty fairytale OR this fanbase.

Yeah, you be the judge – please.

and how Steph Could POSSIBLY Make Her Huge Literary Failure up to The World.

Who am I?


NOTHING But LOVE for Our BELOVED Twilight Character Actors - THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!

“Women (and men) are not in love with me but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women (and men) paint their dreams.” ~ Rudolph Valentino

Ok, alot of you have seen this crazed Twilight Fan up on YouTube... She's BEING US - LoL! This is her reaction to the ORIGINAL Twilight movie, which is of course my FAVORITE movie out of the bunch (as it is SO many other women's)! This seemed to be the perfect tribute! Thank you shining Twilight Fan STAR!

And here's ANOTHER cool video from Empire Magazine!
Based on all the tedious research I've done over the past three weeks... I just want all the actors of Twilight to know, that you ALL obviously did an AMAZING job of bringing things like personality & substance to the characters of Twilight. I keep reading over and over again that the main characters, especially, had very little personality in the books - and I haven't read them.

That may very well be one of the reasons why so many people are so obsessed about you - us fans are still "hungry" from lack of substance, so we turn to you for "more". I have no idea if that's true or not - I'm just a semi-crazy, middle-aged, estranged Twilight movie fan-lady with absolutely NO formal writing expertise or education, at all. What would I know?

Alot of Twilight snobs get angry because you Twilight actors always take all the big, "people-voted" awards home - they don't feel you deserve it, I guess. Based on the huge pile of evidence, you SO F*#!*** DESERVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!

And while I really don't want to single out any "one" person because I think you've all done SUCH a wonderful job - I don't think there is a character in the mix that doesn't seem to be just about as cool as they can possibly be in the movies...

But, I've seen (and heard) alot of criticism about Kristen Stewart as Bella - some of you GROWN women out there are SO out of line, it's ridiculous! (You know who you are and you know what I mean! YES, the date at the top of this post is correct. This was written LONG BEFORE the 'robsten' PR assaults started.) The character of Bella could have come across as such a doormat in the movies, but for as much as Kristen Stewart had to stand around as "Bella's life happens to her" during the first 3 movies - through all those sad/harrowing emotions full of angst - She came across as a strong Bella who both "looked & seemed" strong even when she was in vulnerable situations and was helpless. She made Bella believable for awhile for those of us who weren't mesmerized by Stephenie Meyer's extraordinary (apparently) character-writing capabilities. I don't know, maybe she deserves an OSCAR for that, ha!

So, yeah, there isn't one of you Twilight character actors that we're not all keeping at least a casual eye on... Thanks for brightening up alot of really crummy days, and for being really the only reason why alot of us will probably ever finish watching the two ending movies of Twilight: Breaking Dawn.

Kristen Stewart ~ Bella Swan - Our beloved Twilight heroine (the one who gets to experience all those "DESIRES" that the majority of the rest of us can only imagine and dream about) - at the moment, ha! ;>

Sarah Clarke ~ Renée
- Bella's kooky Mom (who reminds me an awful lot of me - LoL!

Billy Burke ~ Charlie Swan - Bella's tall, dark, handsome, "cop hands", YUMMY Dad!

Gil Birmingham ~ Billy Black - Charlie's BFF since forever, and Chief of the Quileute Tribe. THANK YOU, Sir for such a "real" (and sexy!) portrayal (from what I can see from a Caucasian woman's perspective) of indigenous American-Indian culture in this country. I would LOVE to see more stories surrounding current American-Indian culture - its beautiful & fascinating, and deserves a MUCH bigger place in mainstream American movies & literature.

Update 5/20/12 - I'm going to insert this article about how the REAL, indigenous Quileute American-Indian Tribe feels about how their culture has been portrayed in Twilight; because I really do NOT think you Twihards "get" this. (And I know you're coming in here - this is one of my most popular pages, ha!)

As BLOOD is to a Vampire - So this beautiful, UNIQUE culture and place would be for JACOB and his family! It's ONE thing to take some obscure fable and twist it into a story, but it is ENTIRELY ANOTHER to take a real Human culture's CREATION "Oral History" (that's what they are called) and treat it with as much disrespect as the writer of Twilight has.

It is a creation story NO LESS SIGNIFICANT to this World than our MUCH younger Judo-Christian story. Stephenie Meyer COULD have taken the time to write it into her story in a MUCH more responsible way - and she SHOULD HAVE.

WHY is this important? I live near reservations now and I grew up around them in the Midwest as a child. I HAD native friends who were/are very dear to me, and I KNOW how much this would mean to them - and OBVIOUSLY, the Quileute Tribe wouldn't have went out of their way to host a site like this if at least some of them didn't have strong feelings about this subject.

This isn't how you write a saga or a beautiful fairytale, Children... You KNOW this.

Taylor Lautner ~ Jacob Black - Son of Billy Black, and Bella's 'ol mudpie-making-buddy turned Werewolf who falls in love with her despite her obsession with the amazing, sparkly vamp competition. I have to admit, before I watched New Moon... I was talking to my friend Steve about "how it was going to be impossible for New Moon to make me believe that Bella could ever be in love with anyone else but Edward". But when I watched the movie a few days after that, I TOTALLY could see how that could happen! The Eclipse movie may not have been very convincing for me as far as the Jacob-Bella love story goes; but it isn't because I couldn't believe that it "could" happen - I just didn't get to "see it happen" in the detail that we all got to watch Bella's relationship develop with Edward. I know, I know... I should read the damn books! Maybe someday I will, I have them, after all - ha! I have a piece of advice for furthering your acting career, even though I'm probably not officially qualified to be giving acting advice (but I guess I kind of feel like the whole wide world is listening to me, even though they obviously aren't - ha!)... Everyone keeps talking about how you would make a great action-movie actor - and you would! - But I think you should try do at least ONE really good - hold out for the right one - romance! That scene where Jacob is telling Bella he loves her in New Moon was DEVASTATING to us girls - GO FOR IT!

Justin Chon ~ Eric - Bella's highschool friend who tries to take her under his wing on her first day of school. Who doesn't love Eric, he's so sweet and sensitive and cares about stuff like BELLA and writing, etc. And the scene in New Moon when they are all sitting in a row watching Romeo & Juliet in class with him crying is SO adorable!

Michael Welch ~ Mike Newton
- Another one of Bella's highschool friends and classic "jock". You know, I can totally identify with Bella on not really getting into Mike despite his best efforts. I've never really been into jocks, so it makes perfect sense to me. But I came across a blog post one time done by a guy whose wife had dragged him along to Twilight. And the poor guy had a good point... "I'm more like Mike, why isn't MIKE one of the guys Bella is considering to spend eternal bliss with?" It was kind of funny... If I ever find the article again, I'll add it here.

Anna Kendrick ~ Jessica
- Thanks for being the Twilight girl that we all love to hate. Every highschool had at least one girl like this - in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it was Cordelia - no doubt, one of my FAVORITE Buffy characters. They can say anything and get "right to it". One of my favorite Twilight scenes is the graduation speech in Eclipse. It was PERFECT!

Christian Serratos ~ Angela - Another highschool girlfriend of Bella's... This really was ME in high school - a camera in my hand and always thinking up a new story. She's "my kind" of geeky girl and I LOVE her for it!

Nikki Reed ~ Rosalie Hale - One of the Cullen girls, married to Emmet Cullen. I've always had a soft spot for Rosalie - I think because she always seemed like "the voice of reason". She always seemed moreso of a "mamma bear" than Esme, even - I think that came out alot more after I had read Midnight Sun, however. Plus, the movies deleted a scene in Eclipse with Rosalie that I thought should have been left in... About her desire for a baby. There's alot more to Rosalie than meets the eye. There is a small part of me that is secretly happy inside for Rosalie that she indirectly (kinda) "gets her baby" in the end... Even if I haven't read about it, ha!

Kellan Lutz ~ Emmet Cullen - Big (and beautiful!) Brother of the Cullen clan (and Rosalie's sweetheart)... Carefree, lighthearted, fun-loving; and yet, you DEFINITELY get the impression that he's a no-nonsense, do-whatever-it-takes-all-the-way-to-the-DEATH kind of vamp not to be tangled with - SO fun!

Ashley Greene ~ Alice Cullen - Oh my GOSH, I could just go on and on and ON about Alice Cullen - I LOVE her character! I have a theory about Alice... She's so damn extra-circularly happy & carefree because she HAS NO MEMORY of EVER being Human - of course, ha! I've read some mildly-disappointed posts from Twilight book fans regarding the movies; about how they don't seem to really portray the fact that Alice & Bella become best friends - I would have loved to have seen more of that, if that is true! Her hubby is Jasper...

Jackson Rathbone ~ Jasper Hale - Ok, correct me if I'm wrong, ladies... But doesn't Jas have a whole hell of alot of that sexually-obsessive draw that we all feel so much for Edward? Deep and dark with a mysterious past AND he can literally "sense our feelings!"... AND he's head-over-heels for Alice no matter how crazy she is! Yeah, Jasper is HOT! ;>

Robert Pattinson ~ Edward Cullen - You know, I'm not really sure WHAT I would say to the person who has probably had to put up with the most sh*t from us crazy Twilight fans - other than (especially from those of us who have not read the books) - it is ENTIRELY YOUR OWN FAULT for doing such a damn good job! I sure as hell HOPE you don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Because, 1) I saw all the sparkly vamp posters of Edward and Bella hanging all over the place and on every magazine for those couple of years before Eclipse was coming out, and was completely content without knowing who you were during all that time (no offense). I didn't fall in love with Twilight just because you're so pretty to look at; and it was maybe 3 or 4 weeks before I was curious enough about your work before I looked up "what else" you've been in - and that was Little Ashes. You have a GIFT, Mr. Pattinson - I swear, it didn't seem so much like you were acting during Little Ashes, but moreso like you were CHANNELING the character of Salvador Dali! I've never met the man of course, but have always been an admirer of his; and your portrayal of him was exactly as I "would have expected" him to be - from beginning to end. I've watched it once again since then, and I still think so, I was terribly moved by the performance! You've obviously got an amazing talent to "get into the soul" of a character and tell that character's story across the screen. I don't care what all the critics have to say about what they seemingly constantly refer to as "bad acting". DON'T change a thing about what you're doing... just PERFECT IT! (For the fun of it, I'm inserting my Cosmopolis Movie Review here. I'll do one on Kristen's "On the Road", too, when I get to it. ;)

José Zúñiga ~ Mr. Molina - An ode to cool teachers, everywhere... For me, it was my English & Art teachers, respectively. Mr. Molina was cool and brought up warm feelings from those old HS memories. Thanks for portraying such a cool teacher!

Peter Facinelli ~ Dr. Carlisle Cullen - Patriarch of the Cullen Clan... Ok, so I have an alternative reason for being a Peter Facinelli fan - I'm a HUGE fan of Jennie Garth (90210, anyone?!) GOSH, I'm so happy she ended up with such a hunk - and she seems pretty happy! Thank you for sharing, Jennie! ; >(Gosh, I've just heard about their impending divorce... WoW and WooPs! I feel like I should change what this says, but I don't know what to say differently, yet. So sad, and so sorry Jenny & Peter. Good luck to you both and to your family.)

Rachelle Lefevre ~ Victoria - I'm sorry, I missed out on all the hoopla surrounding the big "Twilight's got a different Victoria" scandal. But damn, you were a COOL Vampire! That scene at the end of Twilight where you're heartbroken and then smirking as you walk down the stairs as the credits start is GOLDEN! It is one of my favorite scenes in the movie!

Cam Gigandet ~ James - Be STILL my HEART! GRRRRRRR... Now THERE'S a VAMPIRE!

Edi Gathegi ~ Laurent - And didn't this character just bring you the chills... You just KNEW he wasn't going to be Mr. Niceguy throughout the entire story!

Elizabeth Reaser ~ Esme Cullen - I don't think they did enough with Mama Cullen (married to Carlisle)... I would have liked to have seen more "Cullen family dynamics" in these movies. She definitely seemed like a really cool character.

And you know, I ALMOST forgot someone who was OBVIOUSLY integral to the success of the original Twilight movie - maybe we all needed her to stay on board throughout the entire franchise. Thank you GOBS & GOBS & WHOLE BUNCHES & GOBS to Catherine Hardwicke, Director of the original Twilight movie, who obviously had a finger on the pulse of "what was so special" about TWILIGHT!


YEAH, go ahead and add your own praises, if you want to..!
