Gone After November

Posted in Breaking Dawn with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2012 by awesometeenmag

Forgive us, dear reader(s), it’s been more than 2 years since our last post. HOLY CRAP THAT CAN’T BE RIGHT?!?! Wow. Yeeeesh, you guys. Yeeeeeeeeesh. Ok, now that that’s out of the way.

How perfect is it that as I sat down to write this post, Gone Till November by Wyclef came on. It seems so appropriate. Except it’s more like Gone After November. Sigh.

So, dear reader(s), I (I being A) am back to Twi-blog one last time before we lay our favorite film saga to rest. Sure, like an undead vamp, Twilight will live on via DVD, Blue-Ray, Kindels, iPads, Nooks…wow. Technology, am I right? Point being, today is the last time (presumably) that I can say “I’m going to see the new Twilight movie!” That sucks. It suuuuuuuuuucks. Remember when you read Breaking Dawn and you cried hysterically when you got to that last page. You know, the one with the words “The End” poignantly printed in bold, final black ink? That’s kind of how this feels. But symbolically.

It’s weird. After making Twilight my Twi-life for so long, it hasn’t hit me yet that this is the end. Granted, I haven’t been as active in the last couple years. (Obvs.) I got a full-time job writing and doing PR for a company which I won’t mention. But I will say that KStew is wearing our products in at least one of these pics. Possibly both.

Just because I haven’t been blogging doesn’t mean I haven’t been fan-girling. I still have all my posters lovingly hung around my apartment. (This could explain my single status.) I’ve adamantly defended the reconciliation of Robsten. (Don’t tell me he shouldn’t take her back or that it’s a publicity stunt. THEY ARE IN LOVE. DAMMIT. IN. LOVE.)

Anyhoozles, back to the point at hand. Today I will see Breaking Dawn Part 2. At 4pm. EST. Today will be my final “new Twilight movie”…until ABC Family inevitably makes a rom-com about Nessie and her new super-cute now-the-same-age-as-her-kinda-sorta-so-it’s-OK-by-Disney-standards boyfriend Jake (played by someone from the supporting cast of Camp Rock 7: The Jonas Brothers Aren’t in This One). Oh, and I think we all know in 5 years the CW will launch a new series called, like, “Forks”…the story of a town where something’s not quite right with that attractive Cullen family, the new girl in town is mysterious, clumsy and intriguing and it rains all the time. But they’ll throw in some new twist like Edward is also fresh out of juvie because he hit a homeless guy with his Volvo while hopped up on enough bath salts to think he’s invincible. But it wasn’t bath salts and he didn’t just think he’s invincible. He is. Because he’s a vampire. And that hobo was going to hurt an innocent elderly woman. Or something. Details are still being hammered out. But this might actually work…so it’s TM. Got that? TM. Legally binding. Dibbsies.

I have mixed feelings about today’s screening. First off, the second half of Breaking Dawn (excluding vampire sex) is like my least favorite thing. So many vampires. So many battle scenes. Weird stuff happens. And I’m not gonna lie, I still don’t quite understand a couple plot points (that hybrid kid from the Amazon…still foggy on the details of his age and maturation status). Plus, as I’ve mentioned THIS IS THE END, FOLKS. So while I’m excited for two hours with my favorite un-dead couple (spoiler?), I’m not looking forward to hours of what US Magazine called “jaw-droppingly violent” battle scenes and the forced farewell that will roll with credits. And this surprise ending that’s kept me off the Internet and Twitter since Thursday? I’m nervous, guys. Nervous. What are they gonna do?? Kill Bella? Kill Edward? Kill Jake?? Originally, I thought it would be some cute retrospective of scenes from the previous movies. Like Bella’s human memories flood back set to a Christina Perri song and we all cry and grin and hug strangers because we lived through all of this together. (I actually got goosebumps writing that…nerd alert.)

But now I think it’s going to be some kind of crazy plot twist that changes everything and makes me leave sad or angry or confused. More confused than I am about that Amazon kid’s age and maturation status. Seriously…anyone else have a hard time with that one?!?

The wondering is killing me, but the wait isn’t. To paraphrase the great Paula Cole, I WANNA wait. I don’t want this to be over. As weird as it may sound to non-Twi-hards, this is the end of an era.

So, until we meet again…or until Steph finishes Midnight Sun and we all converge on theaters to see the whole thing start over again from Edward’s POV…it’s been quite a ride, dear reader(s). Thanks for sharing it with us.

Here’s hoping the surprise ending is the worthy final bow our friends in Forks deserve. See you on the other side.

The End.


New Moon Mix Tape!

Posted in Mix Tape, New Moon with tags , , , , , , , on July 31, 2009 by awesometeenmag

Recently, Co-Creator A downloaded a slew of pop songs to her iPod. (She’s not ashamed to say these included the new CDs from Ashley Tisdale and Demi Lovato). However, it was while listening to Jordin Sparks’ latest offerings that she found what could be the perfect anthem for New Moon. The song? “Papercut”. The explanation? Unnecessary.

(To be clear, there were two lines in this song that had to be removed because they made no sense. We’re sure JS doesn’t mind—she’s obvs a New Moon fan!)

So, without further ado, we bring you…


I’m okay, I’m okay
don’t keep asking me I might disintegrate
what do you want? I’ve moved on
Everything is going well, at least that’s what I tell myself 
I wish I was the tin man so I wouldn’t have a heart to break. 

I’m okay, I’ll survive.
I only think about you half the time
All these tears, are just drops in the ocean baby
You barely even cross my mind no, no
and it doesn’t hurt that much
It was only a paper cut
It’s only a paper cut,  paper cut… yeah

you don’t care
how it burns, how it stings 
just cause you can’t see it bleed
doesn’t mean it don’t go deep
I wish I was the tin man so I wouldn’t have a heart to break.
I’m okay, I’ll survive.
I only think about you half the time
All these tears, all these drops in the ocean baby
You barely even cross my mind no, no
and it doesn’t hurt that much
It was only a paper cut
It’s only a paper cut, paper cut
The more I give, the less I get
sometimes I wish that we never met 
cause I was fine ‘til you broke through
But don’t worry baby ill get over you…
By tomorrow or the next day, or they next day, or the next day

I’m okay, I’ll be fine.
I only think about you half the time
I’m okay, I’ll survive.
I only think about you half the time
All these tears, were just drops in the ocean baby
You never even cross my mind no, no
boy you wish it hurt that much
It was only a paper cut
It’s only a paper cut, a paper cut
I’m okay, I’m okay


That's gonna leave a mark!

That's gonna leave a mark!

Sweet Things

Posted in F.AN.GS (Fun and Games), New Moon, Small Bites with tags , , , , , , on July 28, 2009 by awesometeenmag

In what could be the worst timing ever, Co-Creator A finally found the New Moon chocolate candies at her local Blockbuster…on the first day of her new diet. Committed to both fitness and the Twilight Saga, A purchased them, but has yet to try them (enjoying the bouquet, while resisting the wine, if you will). She has added them to her random Twilight stuff collection, right next to the Twilight Sweethearts and across from the Edward doll M knit her for her birthday. (Add in a couple dozen cats and A is sounding like a helluva catch right about now!).

Anyhoo, we wondered if anyone has bitten into one of these bad boys (or bad girl)? If so, what do you think? Are they worth eating, or just fun to look at? Or play with? (They make for great puppets! Look at the way Edward longingly stares at Bella!) Weigh in Twi-hards….should A break her diet and take a bite?


Twi-abetics might wanna wait for the sugar free version.

The Twi-itter People (Part 1)

Posted in F.AN.GS (Fun and Games), Forks Online with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2009 by awesometeenmag

It’s no secret that I, Co-Creator A, am a little crazy when it comes to Twilight. Yes, I have a giant Twilight movie poster hanging in my office. Yes, I have read the books at least 5 times each. Yes, my ultimate goal this year is to attend the convention and meet Emmett. Whatevs. Last week, while researching ‘The Twi-itter Wars (of the South)’ I came across a group of Twi-hards way crazier than myself. 

It should be mentioned that when I say crazy, I don’t mean it in a bad way. Not entirely anyway. Like I said, I’m pretty fanatical when it comes to my Twi-abetes, so to call the kettle black would make this pot a bit of a hypocrite. However, these fans are taking their obsessions WAY beyond anything I’ve ever done.

Remember back to simpler times. A time with no MySpace, no Facebook, no texting. When AOL was the hottest way to surf your 28.8k net and chat rooms were full of interesting people pretending to be celebrities (I still swear that girl I talked to in 1997 REALLY was Sarah Jessica Parker!). People would pseudo-converse in a pseudo-public forum and when their conversation needed to get a little more detailed, take it to an IM. Those who wanted to have detailed conversations with more than one person would go to private chats named  for oh-so-important topics, like singlefolksinAZ or ILuvSBTBthenewclass. The really intense ones would role play in their chat rooms. Wizards, knights, magicians, they all had their own private chats where they could really get down to the nitty gritty and talk as though they knew how to cast spells, save maidens and pull rabbits out of their virtual hats. We would read and we would laugh. What kind of person gets so crazy about fictional things that they pretend to be those fictional things online?

Enter the new private chat room: Twi-itter Role Players or TRPs. Like I said, I never meant to find this rare breed of Twi-hard. I was looking for celeb Twi-itter accounts and found Alice’s first. I laughed at the intense and questionably delusional things she tweeted to Jasper. For instance: *giggling, leaning down to kiss your neck* Gotcha! (FYI: When people use * to signify action, we start to worry. This is classic old-school AOL chat room behavior!) Anyway, I thought this stuff was fantastic (Co-Creator M was way more creeped out than I was. Doesn’t speak highly of me.) and immediately decided to follow all of them. Bella, Edward, Esme, Carlisle, Jacob, Emmett, Rose…they all have accounts! Even Renesmee has one!! It never ends!

Literally. They never shut up. Never! They’re always talking to each other. Always *doing some sort of action* or sending each other song lyrics. It’s the most intense thing I’ve ever seen! These people must not have jobs…which makes me think they’re like 16. That would make sense anyway, since that’s how old I was the last time I *said I was doing some sort of action*. But as crazy as they are, I can’t stop following them! Which means that you, lucky ATWIM reader(s), get two days of Twi-itter role playing stories! So stay tuned for tomorrow’s installment, which is full of deceit, back-stabbing, adultery and, wait for it, Twitter sex.

New Moon Clip Makes Us Say Ehhhhhh….

Posted in New Moon with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2009 by awesometeenmag

Ok, ATWIM fan(s), we HAVE to know. Did you watch the first 15 seconds of the New Moon preview on ET last night??? Co-Creator A watched it alone (why on earth M would pick THIS weekend to move is beyond me!!) and was NOT impressed. Not be a Rosalie about things, but not not not not not impressed. So not impressed A may or may not have teared up a little from the disappointment. It sure as HECK better get better after second 15. COME ON GUYS!!!!!! MAKE THIS ISH HAPPEN!!! 

In case you missed it, here’s the YouTube clip. We shall now open the floor to comments.

You’re Welcome, Dakota

Posted in New Moon with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2009 by awesometeenmag

So, we couldn’t think of a better casting choice for Jane than Dakota Fanning. Seriously, we thought it was an inspired decision from the beginning. That said, we think little ‘Kota needs to say a serious “gracias” to her vampy friends. Granted, Pre-NM, Dakota’s career was far from being in the toilet, unlike those of most of her child star peers (burn, WEBSTER! Too much?), but she wasn’t on the fast track to second-coming-stardom until our pals in Forks came calling. Now, she’s living the dream. Paps following her every move, hair and makeup at her beck and call…heck, she’s even taking MySpace default pics with KStew and Ashley Greene! 

Most recently, a fashionable Fanning touched down in Italy looking like Jenny Humprhey’s classier twin sister! This is a side of Dakota we couldn’t have imagined in Charlotte’s Web…or even last year’s Push (the preview for which, incidentally, ran before Twilight in both theaters and on DVD). She definitely owes her put together image to her newly acquired media-interest and owes her newly acquired media-interest to New Moon.

So Dakota, on behalf of Twi-hards everywhere, we here at ATWIM say ‘you’re welcome.’ Enjoy your time in the spotlight. We promise to embrace you as the vamp you are. And if you show up at one of the conventions, we’ll keep the Tom Cruise and Denzel Washington questions to a minimum. We might even overlook your involvement in Uptown Girls. We just ask one favor in return: don’t incapacitate us with Jane’s creepy mind power. We’re not immune to it like Bella. 

Ok, one Tom Cruise question: Could you ask him not to incapacitate us with his creepy mind power either?

Howl at the (New) Moon

Posted in New Moon, Team Jacob with tags , , , , , on May 21, 2009 by awesometeenmag

Just like you, dear Twlight fans, we often find ourselves defending the intense awesomeness that is the Twilight Saga to our male friends. No matter how much we champion the bone-crushing fights (Bella DID get her leg broken), fast cars and reckless driving, alluring, beautiful female vamps, and of course, the baseball-related undertones, they can’t seem to get past the chick-flickiness of the movie. (Or maybe it’s our constant male comparisons to one Mr. Robert Pattison. We’re not quite sure.)  In any case, we here at ATWIM are constantly searching for new ways to increase male viewership. Not only because we would hate to deny them of the movie’s awesomeness, but—and most importantly—to secure ourselves dates for multiple viewings of New Moon (because let’s be honest, ladies…it will get expensive paying to see it in theaters 16 times).

41GlByFzNgL__SS500_Ever on the boy-enticing prowl (wolf pun intended),  we cyber-stumbled upon this amazing Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt from Sure, sure, it looks like your average Napoleon Dynamite-inspired thrift store tee (you know, the sort of thing those emo kids on the New Moon poster might wear ironically), but just like Jacob’s wolf pack, it has a much higher purpose. After reading the 200+ customer reviews, it’s apparent that this seemingly mundane shirt captures the essence and allure of our favorite wolf pack in ways even we true fans cannot fathom. Take shirt wearer (and soon to be Twilight fan) Bee Dot Govern, for instance: “I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling alongside out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.”

Just like Jacob once (briefly) had Bella’s heart, Bee Dot Govern got his own heavy-breathing, slightly unkempt (BURN, KStew!!) leading lady. And just like Jacob saved Bella many times, the power of the wolf shirt helped David Luzader save a choking man’s life. Finally! Now guys will see that we love the Quileute wolf pack for more than just being shirtless and hot (though we def love them for those reasons too. Mmm, wolf pack.).

So ladies, add a little wolf to your wardrobe, because thanks to the magic of this shirt—for a mere $9.14—you’ll have your guy pledging his alliance to Team Jacob and imprinting on you in no time! And if all goes according to plan, by November he’ll be so enthralled with all that is Twilight that he might even plan on dressing like Edward for your big New Moon date night.
