Being Robert Pattinson

It would always be that way for me, too.
I would always love this fragile human girl,
for the rest of my limitless existence.
I gazed at her unconscious face,
feeling this love for her
settle into every portion of my stone body.

Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun, Chapter 5, p. 109

I'm all about Edward today.
Well, let's be honest.
I'm always about Edward.
Edward is where this whole thing started.
I read the words that Stephenie Meyers wrote...
and fell head over heels in love.
With a fictional character.
Yeah. That's right.
I said LOVE.
Sometimes I feel that I have to go back
to Edward...
To figure out my feelings
my obsession...
with Rob.
Edward is perfection to me.
I love his POV in
Midnight Sun...
His thoughts
his feelings.
The very things he hides from Bella.
Not only is Edward
He's passionate
He's brilliant.
His love for Bella...
Eclipses everything else.
I love how protective he is,
I love his possessiveness.
My favorite passages in the books
are the ones where
Edward declares Bella
to be 'MINE'...
Where his intense desire
to acquire everything that is Bella
dominates his thoughts...
His soul.
He can't be close enough to Bella.
He can never be satiated...
Always wants more.
Rob has fulfilled my Edward desires.
He is the nearest thing
to Edward that exists.
I cannot imagine another man...
portraying Edward.
Robert IS Edward.
But I sometimes wonder...
if another actor had gotten the role...
would I feel the same way about him?
At first I thought I would.
Because being Edward
*My* Edward
is all I ask.
But Robert Pattinson...
you see...
has made me love him...
for just being
Robert Pattinson.
All the interviews...
where he is so charming...
so witty and honest.
So modest and unaffected.
So clueless to his own glorious beauty.
How thoughtful he is...
and how much he cares about acting
and his music...
All of those things...
made me love
Robert Pattinson.
But without Edward.
I would never have found Rob.
And I can't imagine
what my life would be like...
without him.
Or Edward.
I love them both....
and separately.
I love them both.
Bye for now

Beautiful, Rose. I was always a bit meh on Edward until I saw Rob as Edward.

Now I can't really separate the two. I'd take either ... or both. I'd even settle for the pea coat.

You find the best quotes. I don't remember some of those parts of the books being quite as powerful as they are when you read them alone like this.

They were good books, with well developed characters, but it's the essence of who Rob is that captivates me. Again Rose, you've tapped into my heart.


Mandy said...

Wow Rose, this is beautiful!
I have never read a book that has literally made me feel those feelings of first love, so powerful!
I pray that Stephenie finishes Midnight Sun someday.
You can't help but fall in love with Edward, he is perfection. We can only dream of being loved like that.
You can't help but fall in love with Rob he has charisma, he is like perfection in the making.

Rose, you always say things that I feel.

You say them so much more eloquently than I ever could.

Thank you so much for expressing yourself in a way that we can all appreciate and identify with.
