|Hunger Games! Twilight!|
I have this girlfriend.
(really... I do)
She is an avid reader like myself.
She is the only 'real life' friend who shares my
love of all things Twilight.
So she calls me the other day and asks if I want
to go see "The Hunger Games" when it comes out this weekend.
She read the books.
Now... I've seen LOTS of THG talk online.
My Twitter Time-Line is always full of it.
My emails are forever comparing THG books to Twilight.
You see the supposed 'fight' between Jennifer Lawrence
I've stayed away from getting involved in any
of THG fandom.
Seriously... who needs more lunatic fringe?
And I hadn't read the books...
|The only competition is in your head.|
I read "The Hunger Games"
and I'm 1/2 way through "Catching Fire"
THG was a good book.
And I'm hearing great things about the movie.
I will go see it with my girlfriend
and I will probably like it.
See how that works?
You can like BOTH series of books/movies!
And you want to know something else?
I loved the Harry Potter Books/Movies Too!!!
OH MY GOD.
How could I??
I don't get the big 'competition' with Hunger Games.
I haven't read all the books yet in the trilogy...
They aren't anything like Twilight.
At least for me.
Don't get me wrong...
Katniss is an incredible character.
I love her.
And while there is a love triangle
with Peeta and Gale...
(and hell... Liam Hemsworth is all kinds of cute)
The books are good in their own way.
Not in a Twilight way.
Not to me.
|This picture of Robert sealed the deal for me...|
It was Edward that drew me into Twilight.
It was Robert's Edward that made me see the movies...
It was Edwards thoughts...
And I love that Edward is a vampire.
I have a thing for vampires.
It was Robert's goofy charm and wit.
His complete adorkably sweet self
It was all of it.
(And let's not discount how incredibly gorgeous
Edward and Robert are...)
But it was mostly Edward.
He made me fall in love with these books.
I can't tell you how many times I've read them.
It was Edward that drew me to Fan Fiction...
Because I wanted to read about Edward/Bella
beyond the Twilight restrictions.
And it was Edward that led me to Robert Pattinson.
And all these years later...
I'm still intoxicated.
And no other book character has ever affected me like Edward.
And no other actor...
(With the possible exception of Tom Sturridge)
Has ever knocked me off my feet like Robert.
It's still perplexing to me.
Hunger Games didn't do that for me.
It's still Edward.
And of course....
Twilight also brought Kristen to Robert.
Or Robert to Kristen.
They found each other.
And it has been fun
(and often amusing)
taking the journey through this fandom...
and following Rob and Kristen's relationship
and seeing them fall in love.
What have we learned?
1. You can be a fan of more than one book series at a time.
2. Other than a love triangle... I see no real similarities
between a book about a girl who falls in love with a vampire...
and a girl who is fighting for her life in a post apocalyptic world.
3. I adore Kristen Stewart.
But I really like Jennifer Lawrence as well.
I saw her on Letterman last night...
And she was all hyper and silly
and admits that's how she gets when she is nervous.
They are two different personalities...
Both beautiful and talented.
4. Whether Hunger Games does well at the box office or not
(And I assume it will)
will NOT affect Robert and Kristen's relationship.
Comparing Kristen and Jennifer
will NOT affect Robert and Kristen's relationship.
Why would it?
Robert made his choice long ago...
|Is it possible that I miss that damn hat of Tom's?|
Marcus Foster was on Fallon last night.
He was really pretty damn good.
The boy can sing.
And you know what else?
He looks better 'live' than he does in pictures.
Not sure why that is...
But he fucking rocked on Fallon.
I will admit...
I don't follow the other 'Britpackers' around.
I've heard them all play
And they are very good.
(Why doesn't Tom sing??)
I will be honest here and admit that I probably never
would have even heard of them
if it hadn't been for Rob.
And I'm sure a lot of their fans are because of Rob.
But that's OK.
Because they really are a talented bunch of guys.
And it's good that they are getting heard.
Seeing Rob on stage with any of them
All of them.
Now THAT would be a show.
|I miss shaggy and scrappy do....|
And Robert was photographed yesterday...
coming out of an office or something.
I don't know.
The pictures were shitty as hell.
Even though there were a few walking pics...
(and you KNOW how I love me some of those)
I just couldn't post them here.
Robert walking is always good stuff...
But you want to SEE him
|Walking AND a cigarette...|
So I got a bit nostalgic...
And decided to add a couple of my faves...
and this one?
One of the BEST ever.
And come on....
Don't you feel better now?
How about one more?
Fingers in his mouth...
And that little triangle of tummy.
How cute is that??
You KNOW you feel good now!
Haven't done that in a while.
1. I can only hope that all the people who are hating
on Twilight and Kristen/Rob at the moment
will get the fuck outta Dodge
and get into The Hunger Games!
Go join that fandom.
The people who are SO disappointed in Rob
for following his heart
(and aww... it didn't lead to YOU
What a shame)
The people who are toxic and relentless in their
hatred of Kristen
(and awww... He still didn't pick YOU)
The people who seem to think comparing
actors from other book/movie series
is somehow going to change anything
(and awww... He will still love Kristen!)
Go to The Hunger Games fandom!
You might even have a day or two
before they get sick of your creepy ass.
2. Dare I ask where Tom Sturridge is?
Should I just be happy to post a picture or two
and leave it at that?
Because every time I ask...
And then I see Tom alright...
Being all snuggly and happy with Sienna
Who is looking all glowing and lovely...
Let's wait and see.
But I do adore Thomas.
I could say more.
But maybe another time.
And another picture
Because it's my blog
and I can.
I love that Robert and Kristen are in love.
Maybe I feel like I've been there from the beginning...
I've gotten to see them fall for each other
And finally succumb to their hearts true desire.
It's been an interesting journey.
I look forward to the next step...
and seeing Rob and Kristen continue down their chosen path
Bye for now
