October 20, 2008


It's been 6 years.
Six.
To be honest...
I kinda forgot about the day I started this blog.
It was Oct 20, 2008

In the beginning...
My posts were all about 
Robert and Edward.
Yes. Edward.




This was before Twilight even came out.
I was completely intoxicated with
Edward Cullen.
A book character.
Something that had never happened
to me before
And then...
the intoxication led me to Rob.
And then I became completely 
enamored with an actor.
NEVER
EVER
has that happened to me
before or since.
I didn't get it.
I was bamboozled
Permuddled
Confuzzuled


(how Dr.Seuss of me)
I couldn't wrap my head around
the fact that I was so infatuated
with this character
and the man who played him.

So I started this blog.
6 years ago.
Trying to figure out why.
I never really found my answer.
But I learned a lot.
About people.
About fandoms.
About Robert.
About Kristen.
About Robert and Kristen.


I saw early on that there was 
something happening between them.
By October 28th 
Just 8 days later...
I was already posting about their
on and offline chemistry.

From a post on Oct 28, 2008


"I wanted to talk about chemistry. 
As in on screen chemistry.
 As in Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. 
They have it. And better yet, they have it off screen as well.
 I think it is so obvious that there was 
a little sumthin sumthin going on between these two...
beyond Edward and Bella.
 I have watched all the videos of the two of them...
and they are just so INTIMATE with each other. 
The way they look at one another...
the way Kristen touches Roberts face 
(and that, my friends, is intimate), 
the way they couldn't keep their eyes off
 of each other at Comic Con...
their body language on and off screen. 
But especially off screen,
 because they are always touching...always close.
Now, I know that they are supposed 
to be dating other people or whatever.
 But there is definitely something there.
 I don't care what anyone says.
 And if they get right back into making "New Moon"
 (oh please Lord)
 they will get right back into their chemistry."


Yeah.
So... it really wasn't about 'shipping' for me.
(Never really has been.)
And it most certainly had nothing to do
with me confusing Edward and Bella
with Rob and Kristen.
It was just... Sweet.
Seeing these two people
falling in love with each other
from the beginning...

I found that the more I got to know Kristen
The more I liked Kristen.



It was fun watching them interact with each other
Look at each other
Try not to look at each other
Touch each other
Try not to touch each other.
It was fascinating
and oh so lovely.



I can't tell you how many times
I watched this Empire video back in the day...
They completely intrigued me.
(and yeah, not sure why)
Every moment they are together
you see the magnetic pull
Sometimes they try to fight it
But watch at the end...
Kristen looks quickly at Rob
Rob responds
without even looking at her.
Completely Connected.
That's the kinda stuff I mean.
(And can I just say...
how fucking cute is Rob in this video?
It makes me sooo nostalgic
for these early days *sigh*)

That was then. 
This is now.

 6 years.
 And I've always been behind
Rob and Kristen.
Always.
Even 2 years ago
when things became... difficult
I never turned my back on them.

And I'm not doing that now.
Some people confuse
logic and honesty
for not 'believing' in Rob and Kristen.
I will always believe in them.




But now if you don't think
Rob and Kristen are married and together
You are labeled a 'hater'
Seriously?
I see things as they are.
I don't necessarily LIKE what I see right now...
But I'm not going to pretend I don't see it.

I would love to frolic in 3D Land with you
1-Delusional
2-Desperate
3-Denial




But I don't like it there.
Nothing makes sense in that land
It's actually rather creepy.
Some people are scary.
Up is down
In is out
Under is over
babies are invisible
love is based on hoodies and lies
and cousins- oh my!
There are conspiracies everywhere...
3D land gives me a headache.
It makes me nauseous.
No thanks.



But I'm still here.
I still adore BOTH Rob and Kristen.
I'm still interested in what they do
and what they have to say.
And I will always
Always
Have hope that they will find their way
back together again.
Because yes...
Love is fucking LONG.



So let's talk about
Nicholas Hoult.
(again)

If you mention his name
in the same sentence as Kristen
you are SHIPPING them together!
Good fucking grief.

1. I will never ship another couple again.
Ever.

2. I happen to like Nicholas Hoult. 
If I want to talk about him.
I will.
I think he's cute.
I love his voice.
I don't see why that's a bad thing... You know?



If he hangs out with Kristen...
Lucky him.
And if he doesn't?
I still will think he's cute
and I still will talk about him.

3. I will never ship another couple.
Ever.
Ever.

4. I will never ship another couple.
Ever.
Ever.
Ever.

5. You get the point right?

I don't need 4-Evers
Do I?





So yeah.

6 years.

72 months 

312 weeks

2190 days

That I have been in
Rob and Kristen's corner.
Happy for them.
Defending them.
Adoring them.

So don't fucking tell me
that I'm not anywhere
but HERE.
Where I have been from the beginning.
Where I will probably always be.


Happy Anniversary RPI

I can't wait to see
what's around the next corner.


This post is brought to you by...

The number 6



6 members of the BritPack

And isn't it great that these guys
are still such good friends?
Doesn't that make you smile?



6 years

of loving 
and
watching
two
endlessly 
fascinating 
people.




6 years
of finding
out
all about
Tom Sturridge
and 
loving
every moment.











6 years
and 6 random pictures
(out of so so many)
(how does one choose??)
of Rob walking...

Still intoxicating
after all these years.


Until next time.

Bye for now.


Happy Halloween!

You said it well.

Unknown said...

You've articulated, at least for me, all the feelings and thoughts, and angst I've had all this time on Kristen and Rob. You are simply the best Rose. You must write a memoir, VTY, Mary (@jettfuel).

linese said...

Happy Anniversary RPI. It's always a pleasure to read your written words Rose.

Birdie said...

Happy Anniversary,Rose and RPI!
It has sure been a journey. They are still a fascinating pair! Thanks for letting us in on your wit and wisdom.

DreamerKind said...

@Rose
Happy blogging anniversary! It's been like having a love affair with wild roller coaster riding, and worth every thrilling high/low. Met some great people, too. Rave on!

katy said...

Happy blog anniversary, Róse! Excellent post!

Frist came Rob, then Kristen to me. I've been a fan of them for 6 year's and I will be a fan of them for a 1000 more, no matter what. Good or bad. Love them always.

I may detest how things are now, but delusional, I am not.

I love that Rob is still friends with the britpack...especially with Tom.

Take care everyone

Scarlet Nonna said...

Congrats, Rose. Never commented here before but have lurked for a good few years. Just want you to know I respect your blog and I respect you and your opinion. I also fancy Tom; such an under-appreciated actor. And I'm entirely keen on Nicholas Hoult, not as anyone's "partner", just for his solid body of work. Cheers from here.

...a fan said...

Rose,

Happy Anniversary.

I think this is one of your best blogposts ever. I love that you care so much about these people and that you have taken care with them as well. I am not sure what the truth is as I was wasn't that concerned with them as a whole. I came way late to this party. The current reports ring false to me but really that and $2.00 will get you a cup of coffee.

I admire you Rose and please continue to speak your truths, I will always seek out your words. At a time when Kristen was shunned... I found you. Loyal, articulate,compassionate you. I am truly glad I did. Be proud of your six years.

My respect for you, is also very long.

Rae H. said...

Rose I like this post very much. I too fell in love with Edward from the book before Rob the actor. It was like Stephanie Meyer's powerful muse reached out to us and from half a world away drew the perfect embodiment of the boy who should play him, Robert Pattinson.

In fact the magic extended outward to the other characters as well. It was as if they all stepped right out of the authors imagination and into our lives and many of us seeing that happen have never been quite the same since. We became Twilight fans.

I love the Empire photo shoot giving us the first inkling of what would come to be. They were all so young, shy and uncertain. Never would we have suspected the super stardom waiting for Kristen, Rob and Taylor; much less Taylor's glorious physique to come, nor Rob's confident signature Robert Pattinson stride.

I miss them and yet they still live in my memory, forever young thanks to human memory and the medium of DVDs.

This has been the best post you have ever written. So full of memories and that same hope and dreams that helped inspire us long ago. Blunted a bit by the caution of time and experience and the knowledge that we are on lookers on two people's lives and the best we can do is wish them well and hope that they will always have the connection of Twilight.

That the relationship survives in them, the way it has in fans; a story engraved in all of our hearts. And like you Rose I have no idea how that happened. I just know that it did.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Happy Anniversary ROSE

Agreeing with your post and every comment. Thanks for the ride. It has been a magnificent roller coaster ride for sure !

Rae H. said...

Rose, your post so inspired and excited me that I forgot to wish you
Happy 6th Anniversary.

So Happy Anniversary!!!!!

Here's to hoping for many more.

And thanks for the memories..Rae

Hannah Pennick said...

Rose I love the photos and the video. You are so right about the end of that video. Kristen takes a quick sideways peek at Rob and this small hint of a smirk comes over Rob's face, like he's thinking, "Yep, she's looking at me." It's like they were so aware of each other all of the time that they each picked up on the smallest of gestures from each other.

As for the rest I think everyone should be allowed to think what they like, because we KNOW so very little; but here these sites are six years later still believing in Rob and Kristen, all hoping that they have a still have a future together.

That hope unites us. And I've always been big on hope but I understand your thinking too.

This was a beautifully written post and so well put together.
Thank you, Rose.

Pattybg said...

THANKS, ROSE, FOR THE MEMORIES....MAY THERE BE MANY MORE IN THE FUTURE.

PATTY. XXX

suebirchall said...

Thanks for the re-cap Rose and yes it was a lovely ride I enjoyed it all the way and will support both young actors as they continue in stellar careers The Empire vid you posted was actually discussed last night on another board ( You Know the one GC) Some obviously emotionally challenged person quoted the interaction in that particular vid as a prime example of Kristens nasty behaviour towards Robert and said that proved she never loved him even in the beginning Apparently MA was also present at the shoot ( He did seem to be a prescence a lot at the start)_ As they were still a couple ( and for a further 6 months apparently ) Kristen still cant hide her obvious interaction with Rob at that point And as for the Paris tarmac pic from Nov 2009 He looks positively Triumphant in holding her hand in a private moment. I know what I saw through all those years and no negative nelly can take that away

ADD said...

Happy Anniversary Roseland! For better or for worse...it's been a great ride.

Bobbie V said...

Been here before Rose, but I don't think I have ever posted, but today I read your post and I loved it, they did have a wonderful love and like you maybe they will find it again one day, things change and there's nothing we can do to change it back, but we can only wish and hope. BV

carrie1234567 said...

Happy Anniversary, Rose! You have much to celebrate and much to be proud of. It has been truly wonderful to read your thoughts, see my own mirrored in them, and hear a voice in the fandom that was equal parts passionate and respectful. That is unique these days, and so appreciated. I hope that with time, more voices will start to sound like yours. You are a treasure. Congratulations on all the work you've done here, and in the fandom. Cheers! Toasting to you, to a wonderful relationship we've had the pleasure of witnessing for six years, and for the happiness of these two people we love from afar!

Barb said...

Wow 6 years! Rose can you promise to post pictures of Rob walking for at least 36 more years? By then I will be 90 years old. That should be old enough to have stopped salivating over a walking Rob. What do you think? Maybe not! ;)

Pisteuo said...

Hi Rose and Roseland!

Happy Blog Anniversary!!

Rose, thanks for ALWAYS being here. I'm right here with you. <3

Unknown said...

Ditto on all the awesome things everyone has posted. Rose has always been my default when nothing makes sense in the world of twitter realm. I turn to her, @jettfuel

DreamerKind said...

Happy Birthday to the many who celebrate in November!

darkvamp1 said...

Sometimes good, sometimes bad, sometimes ugly, but always sane. Happy Anniversary! Thank you Rose for the past six years. It's been a wonderful ride. I've now moved on and am happy for Rob and whoever makes him happy. I hope he finds true love with FKA Twigs if she is his choice. I also hope Kristen finds the right person, if she hasn't already. I will never ship again but I don't regret my past involvement with Rob & Kristen. I just know that for me it was time to move on. Thank you again for some lovely moments over the years...

Arleen P said...

Happy Anniversary Rose and RPI! Good night to you all! I am still here. Hugs! Keep me posted. Night all!

Joy Gail said...

After seeing the new pictures of Rob and Twigs in Toronto and seeing them look really happy to be together, I, as of today am quitting the Rob/Kristen blogs. I will follow the movies, but that's all.

Arleen P said...

Good night to all the Roselands! I am still here. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be boycotting those trashy tabs and their gossip sites. Thanks to you all! I am still here supporting Rob and Kristen's movies. I hope you still have me. Because I love being friends with you all! Well I going to bed. Keep me posted. Night everyone!

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Oh can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please

Oh can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Every move you make
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

I'll be watching you

Good night to all the Roselands! Hugs to you all! Keep me posted. Night!

Good night to all the Roselands! I have job hunting for that second job, having dinner with my family, and watching CMA Awards. I also have been having pains on my left hip. I am still alive and talking. But I am not going to let affect me from working and do the things I love to do. I am still here. I have faith. I always. Well good night everyone! Hugs!

Arleen P said...

Good morning to all the Roselands! I am on my way to my job interview at 5 he Ihop. Wish me luck and prayers. I pray I hope I get it.

Hello Rose
Just a quick question, how can I email you, can I email you?

DreamerKind said...

Lovely, frank and true to herself Kristen! (Especially at the AFI Festival Indie Contenders Roundtable)

lemoine idiane said...

Good Morning! The clips of the round table interview are amazing and Kristen is just beautiful, the jacket was lovely and she sat in front of a bowl of red roses. There isn't a full interview available as yet but Kristen sparkled and shined like the star she is. No nonsense, completely honest, beautifully spoken comments specifically about Still. You hear that she felt like Julianne could easily be her Mother and it was natural to her, and that the director, I think had A , and Kristen felt he was well represented in the movie, and I really choked up to find this out. Julianne Moore was always to be Jane, the film was written for her, the script was beautiful. More tears from me. This has got to be one of the best films made to date and I am anxious to see all of Kristen's movies. We can see just what this disease can and does do to the mind and how it affects the family that is grieving. Bravo Kristen!

Hannah Pennick said...

Rose..You have always been about Rob and Kristen's career. You discourage personal speculation when stuff a lot of people disagreed with began.

But Rose you were there for them at the beginning. Now that one or both may win an award, don't you have anything to say?

I never commented here many times because I just didn't seem to fit in. But I have read you every day for two years or more.

Have you given up on them both?

You always said, "Love is long."
Maybe they'll surprise us yet.
