I'm kinda a sucker for numbers...
I have favorites.
Not usually a big fan of 13.
So I guess there are superstitious ones.
But I have a feeling...
A feeling deep inside
that this number
is going to be a good number.
Earlier on Twitter...
People were tweeting their
There is NO doubt about it.
2012 was a helluva fandom year.
And outside of some momentary darkness...
It was pretty ok.
So I gave some thought to my favorite
fandom moments of 2012
and there were many.
So I narrowed it down...
Cannes of course.
I mean... truly
There is nothing that compares.
We got to see Rob
all shiny and pretty in a tux
And we got to see Kristen
Shimmering sexy in red
We saw Rob show up to support Kristen
at the OTR premiere
Then we got to watch Kristen
looking drop dead gorgeous
to support Rob for Cosmopolis...
With handsome Thomas on her arm.
What a glorious time.
A stupendous incredible wonderful time.
Could it get even better?
Is it possible?
Oh yes my little chickadees...
We all know how it got beyond anything
we would ever imagine happening...
There really aren't words.
No words are really needed.
Pictures are indeed worth a thousand words.
A million words.
Fuck the words...
They are priceless.
As wonderful and incredible as Cannes was...
Something else happened
a bit later.
Loving and living together.
And lets not forget the one that
made everyone smile...
Almost as big as the smile Rob has
on his face as he looks at Kristen.
OK, I know these pics are intrusive and shit.
But these pictures were sooo important.
Because they were AFTER.
Seeing Rob and Kristen KISSING
Loving and hugging each other
Still in LOVE
These were a BIG fucking deal.
We knew then...
They were going to be all right.
And that's all we really wanted...
For both of them to be ALL RIGHT.
Rob and Kristen came out
on the other side
They never gave up.
WE never gave up.
Proving the Rags and the Hags wrong.
So many turned their back on them...
So many showed their true colors.
So many judged and criticized.
And sadly... so many have chosen
the moment of Rob and Kristen's public pain...
as their BEST moment of 2012.
Doesn't that pretty much tell you
what kind of people they truly are?
So my BEST fandom moment really is
the fact that Rob and Kristen
That they still love each other.
That they walked through the fire
And that they are moving forward...
This post is brought to you by 2013
I hope that everyone finds
love, peace and happiness
in the new year.
By Tom Sturridge...
Because what would a post be that
wasn't brought to you by Tom?
Life really is good.
For Rob and Kristen.
Until next year.
Bye for now
