Here I sit...
Trying to think about what I want to say for Kristen's Birthday.
How many have there been since I've been in this fandom?
That seems like an awfully long time, doesn't it?
And guess who has been by her side
for every one of those 6 birthdays?
Every single one.
The one consistent person in her life
through the ages of 18-23 years old.
Doesn't that tell you something?
No matter where the other one was
They found a way to be together.
Outside of family...
Who else has been by Kristen's side
for every important occasion in her life?
There are a lot of blogs and tumblrs
that are giving glorious tributes to Kristen today.
Lots of great pictures and love
all dedicated to her.
She deserves every one.
But as I sit here...
I realize that I can only tell you why
I completely adore Kristen Stewart.
I could probably do it...
but let's stick with the number 6 today.
She's strong... and brave.
She has put up with a lot this past year.
Stuff that most people wouldn't be able to deal with.
She has dealt with intense scrutiny and hatred
because she's human... and flawed.
I doubt most people would have been able to
go out in public and face the criticism and judgement
that she has had to confront everyday since the world
has become aware that her and Rob
had fallen in love.
She's strong in her resolve to keep
what's hers... to herself.
She lives her life...
And she doesn't care if anyone approves.
The fact that she is...
human and flawed.
She's awkward and doesn't always say the right things...
She trips and fumbles
But she always gets back up.
She kicks off her heels as soon as she can.
She goes out without makeup and her hair
wrapped up in a baseball hat.
She wears old t-shirts and jeans.
Kristen can wear anything and look gorgeous in it.
But her clothing of choice usually is from Rob's
side of the closet.
She dresses for herself... not for others.
Yet she is one of the most talked about
fashion icons out there right now.
I feel that Kristen is misunderstood.
People quickly judge her on one interview...
Or a blurb in a gossip rag.
They don't listen to her...
They don't SEE her.
They don't see that she is painfully shy...
and uncomfortable in public situations
(No matter if she's an actress or not)
They prefer to say she's cold and uncaring.
They don't see how deeply she feels for
the work she does...
The people she loves...
Or the people who love her.
It's one of the reasons I feel protective about her.
I want people to understand.
I want people to see the Kristen I see.
The one who is quick to smile and giggle
The one who would do anything for a friend.
The one who works hard for the job she loves.
Robert understands her.
And he loves her.
Know what I mean?
I think she's fucking talented.
And the reason I believe this so strongly
is because she makes me feel...
What she is feeling.
Screaming to Aro
"Kill me... Not him"
I got teary.
Dancing with Taylor at the wedding.
I cried too.
Watching her face light up
when she sees Rob at the end of the aisle
waiting for her
I could feel her joy.
When Kristen cries in a movie...
It's almost guaranteed I will be crying too.
Whatever the emotion
I feel it too.
Kristen loves animals.
She saves dogs from shelters.
She takes her cat with her as much as possible.
She loves Bear and Bernie like they were her children.
Have you heard her talk about them?
They're like people.
It's a passion she shares with Rob...
He not only saves dogs from near death
but he pays to have an alligator sent free.
Two of a kind.
|Had to get Tom in this post...didn't I?|
I'm trying to condense my reasons down to six
and it's not been easy...
But suffice to say
People who know Kristen
Who REALLY know her.
They want to take care of her...
All will step in front of her to help her.
And that leaves me to Rob.
Robert loves Kristen.
I have no doubts about that.
Rob has made it pretty clear that
there is only one girl in his life.
The one who always shows up by his side.
The one who makes him smile like no other.
The one who has played the most important
role in his life for the past 6 birthdays.
Look around and you will see it's true.
It's always Kristen.
And you know how it goes.
Rob and Kristen
Especially on birthdays!
I hope you have a wonderful birthday...
and you get all the happiness and love you deserve.
And when you blow out the candles on your
birthday cake tonight...
Look at Rob smiling back at you
and remember your wishes have already come true.
This post has been brought to you by the numbers 6 and 23
6 will become 7
(then 8, 9 and 10. And beyond)
and 23 is a lucky number.
Just you wait and see.
Until next time.
Bye for now
