MSN has an interesting little interview with Kristen Stewart. Go check it out. Seriously. It’s a real gem of an interview.

Now, I like to think of myself as one of the more rational fans, especially in terms of bombarding the actors. I can totally see how they might freak out. However, having said that, there’s a difference between being easily overwhelmed/surprised and telling a reporter that you think your fans are ‘retarded’.

I don’t really care what Kristen Stewart thinks of me, whatever. But considering how well she was embraced by fans when she was cast, I have to admit she really crossed the line there. Even if MAYBE what she was saying was taking out of context, using the word ‘retarded’ in relation to Twi-fanatics whom have so openly embraced you is ONLY going to result in mobbings with pitchforks.

What did you expect? When someones favourite book is being turned into a movie, they get excited. It’s just how it is. No matter whether it’s a multi-million copy best seller like Harry Potter or Twilight, or it’s some little book like Hunting & Gathering (which is a fantastic read, just FYI). People celebrate.

I understand she didn’t realise the hype and I also understand that she may not be the kind of out going celebrity that people want her to be – fair enough. But Kristen Stewart, whilst I may not care what you say (although I was rather shocked), man you’ve really pissed off alot of people. Don’t ever bite the hand that feeds.

Man I’m curious to see what happens next… These so called ‘retarded’ fans are not to be underestimated.

Ok, my internets been down, hence the lack of updates. I’ll be doing some proper blogging tomorow.

In the meantime, let us play a game. I like to call this game:


Yeah, that’s right, thanks to a lovely lovely gossip magazine, I can now link myself to anyone and everyone involved in Twilight. The cast AND Stephenie Meyer.

This. Blows. My. Mind.

Ok, you can read the relevant story at NineMSN.

Now don’t tell me that this is just gossip! Shush! I know it might just be gossip! But can I PLEASE just pretend it’s real? Just for a moment?

Let’s continue:

I’m friends with some people who went to school with/were in a theatre production with the boy in the above article. (Infact, his school is literally two blocks from my house.)

Now, he’s allegedly dating Emma Watson, aka Hermione.

She starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with Robert Pattinson.

What’s that? 4 Degrees? Man, that’s just insane in the membrane. I cannot believe how bloody close that is. It also makes me THAT much closer to working out my 6 degrees between me and Kevin Bacon. (Because apparently everyone is 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon, now I just have to find a link between Watson and Bacon! And that’s a big deal.)

Right, so I could go on from there, with the degrees game, to Stephenie Meyer and JK Rowling and Alan Rickman and Gary Oldman and Emma Thompson and… that’s about it for celebrities from HP & Twilight that I actually would not mind running into… (and then of course, we could just keep going, listing off everyone who’s ever been in a movie or whatever with ANYONE from Harry Potter or Twilight and then it just gets complicated!)

So for now, all I care about, is that I am 4 degrees – FOUR! – from Robert Pattinson and JK Rowling and FIVE!!! from Stephenie Meyer.

And, thank you to Katie for working out how I was initially linked to the boy in the above article. (Because Jo and I spent AGES this morning looking for a common friend.)

Man I’m psyched!

Actual real and proper Twilight news tomorow! (When my internet officially kicks back in!)

love and vampire bites!

p.s. do you think if I held that boy hostage, I could pursuade Emma to pay ransom in the form of Robert? lol. this is what happens when you have had too much sugar and a brand new Twilight poster for your bedroom wall!

But who cares right?

Because everyone wants their very own Edward doll. Yes, I know you do, do not lie to me. I am fully aware that you will go and buy the doll the moment it comes out and take it home and play with it and go buy a Barbie doll or similar that looks like you and act out your own little fantasties.

I know I would. Well except maybe that last part.

See, for my 16th birthday (three years ago) my friends bought me a doll, his name is River and he has a leather jacket and a bass guitar. They told me he was my boyfriend. But I’d so dump River for plastic Edward any day of the week! 😛

They’re lucky us Twilighters are such a tragic (yes, it’s true, we are) bunch who just love love love Twi-things.

See, I’ve never had the desire for an action figure. Not even a Harry Potter one – because I prefered the Potter lego. Same goes for Star Wars, I love my lego Darth Vader to bits.
But now, now I have to have an action figure. And not just any action figure. I must have my own minature Edward. I will love him and care for him and feed him bloods whenever I can.

Robert Pattinson is excited too. Remember, he told us so a while back in this interview with About.Com. He says he wants a button on the back so it can do stuff.

But what does plastic Edward do? All action figures have skills and tricks. They might have capes that pop out or arms that punch. What does action figure Edward do?

I hope you can press a button and he sparkles. And maybe says something sexy like: “Do I dazzle you?” so that I might reply: “Frequently.”

So there’s a question for you all: What would you want your Edward action figure to do?

Thank you to Lady Manson at her LJ for the information and for being so sneaky and taking such a sneaky picture. Super sneak.

Today’s character of choice is the topic of the moment: Renesmee.

Love her or hate her, she’s there and you can’t get rid of her.

Now, Renesmee is obviously a half-breed (which Draco Malfoy would say is dirty :P), being that daddy is a vampire and mummy was a human at the time. This frustrated many readers, including myself initially. You can see my rant on “Why didn’t Edward use protection?” in my post When a mummy and a daddy love eachother very much, they call the Stork! at my other blog. Of course, the debate over whether or not Bella and Edward could’ve had a baby is not the only thing that needs considering!

First of all, why is Renesmee so perfect?
Well, did you know that no matter how ugly you are/you think you are, your mum and dad still think you’re pretty special, and that you’re very attractive. Did you not realise, after all this time, that this book is from BELLA’S point of view (except for the bit that isn’t) and thus her perception of Renesmee is obviously going to be bias. Renesmee could look like a gremlin as per the post at Lauren’s Bite, for all we know! Really, no matter what she looked like, Bella would’ve cooed over her.

What is that you say? Charlie thought she was pretty? Charlie is her granddad, nuff said. Same goes for all the Cullens. Although, I reckon Emmett would’ve been pretty blunt had the baby been a really ugly mutant. So we can assume that she is at least a humanoid and that she is cute.

Having said all this, have you ever seen an ugly baby? I mean in real life, not on the tv or in a magazine where the babies are mutated for fun times. I have never seen an ugly baby. From this, we can conclude that as long as Renesmee is humanoid, she is cute.

Jacob, of course, is clearly not thinking straight when he looks at Renesmee and thus also cannot be seen as a reliable source of the true Renesmee. See! All this bias and you guys are RANTING on about how much you hate this perfect baby. Maybe this baby isn’t perfect? Maybe she won’t be as pretty as Edward and Bella when she stops growing because she hasn’t got complete vampire blood?

Now, I’ll be the first to admit, Renesmee is not my favourite character. Infact, she annoys me alot. Or is it Bella’s perception that annoys me? Quite possibly. After all, eventually we all do get a bit sick of people cooing about their perfect children who are in actual fact normally the ones that are the biggest brats. (Yes, I can say this, I get on famously with children and as a babysitter I know how parents get.) But I don’t think Renesmee is really that much of a brat, she’s maturing too fast.

I think, for most of the anti-Renesmee people out there, the big issue was not Renesmee herself, but what Renesmee does to the story: she took up all Bella’s attention and SIDELINED Edward. How could she?! This story is supposed to be theirs, not hers. And we got less Edward with the introduction of the offspring. We got more Jacob though, much more Jacob. Which didn’t fuss me, but I’m sure irritated any anti-Jacobers out there. (p.s. stop being cold, if you have ever EVER been in a situation like Jacob’s, where you suffer unrequited love whilst the object of your affection runs off with someone you feel is bad for them you’d totally understand and love him too. even if you are staunchly team Edward)

Now, where were we?

Ah yes.

1. Bella is obviously bias because Renesmee is her child.
2. Same goes for Charlie and the Cullens.
3. Renesmee sidelined Edward.
4. Jacob too, because of the imprint.
5. Stop being nasty to Jake.
6. I’m Team Edward.
7. Is the irritating character Renesmee or really Bella because of the way she sees Renesmee?

Let us continue.

Did anyone else find it incredibly annoying that when Renesmee was eaten out of Bella’s stomach she was automatically liked? After having been the horrid Bella-killer after all this time. Man, if I was Edward and Bella was carrying a killer mutant, I’d secretly find a way to abort it in her sleep – regardless of the consequences.

And if I were the Cullens, I’d be more like Alice, because she was cautious of the half breed Bella-killer. I’d steer way clear of anything that almost destroyed someone I loved that much! (Even if it was cute.) Although, I guess eventually she’d grow on me, but only cos I really like babies!

When I read about everyone just instantly liking Renesmee right after her birth, I texted my bestie, outraged. Especially Jacob imprinting! I was so upset:


Lucky I continued reading, huh?

For now, let us conclude on Renesmee. If I decide there’s something I should add, I will. (Maybe about the other vampires – like Dracula 1 and Dracula 2 and Zafrina)

Renesmee was evil, but then she wasn’t. She’s still a little annoying. She’ll grow up. She got a happy ending. Yay.

Next time: Leah Clearwater. Because she is my best and favourite minor character.

p.s. Leah would make a far better spin off than Renesmee. Renesmee got her happy ending, we all know she’ll grow up and be happy with Jake forever. Leah has been left unresolved – ergo SM should develop her. Far more interesting read guaranteed.
