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.

I Want My NMtv!

Posted in New Moon with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2009 by awesometeenmag

By now you’ve all heard the news, dear reader(s): The 2009 Mtv Movie Awards will include the world premiere of footage from New Moon as presented by RPattz, KStew and Tay-La. Let’s just let that fact sink in for a minute. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!! 

Ok, I’m good.

Anyhoo, since the announcement of this freaking fantastic news, I, Co-Creator A, have had trouble sitting still. I honestly had to make myself stop thinking about it for a few days because the anticipation was getting to be too much for me. But now that I’ve calmed down a bit and there are only THREE DAYS standing between me and the footage (I’m having trouble breathing), I’ve channeled my energy into a To Do list that I think all Twi-abetics can seriously benefit from.

1. Possibly the most important: Tweeting while watching TV. Luckily, my typing skills are pretty boss, so I’ve mastered typing without looking at the keys. What I have not mastered, however, is typing while screaming like a 12-year-old at a JoBros concert and wiping the drool off my chin while doing so. I’m going to have to practice that for a few days if I am going to properly Tweet the whole experience for ATM! (Follow us!!) And you know I am!

2. Snacks. Normally, all of my big TV moments are accented by two things—wine and sushi. This brings up a tricky sitch: do I order the sushi ahead of time and let it sit til I get hungry (which won’t happen til way after New Moon footage) or do I order it and pray it doesn’t arrive at the same time as my beloved Edward? So many decisions when it comes to dinner time for the human!

3. The Hills Finale. Seriously, Mtv, did you have to put me on sensory overload that night? I’ll be crying like an idiot after saying goodbye to LC (don’t judge) and then I’ll have to go directly into Twi-hard mode and be elated! Plus how will it affect the Red Carpet, which normally runs the hour before an event? It’s when we get to see the celebs in all their finery, enjoy their witty and often embarrassing banter with reporters and most importantly, it’s always where Rob looks his best! (Though something tells me the bulk of my Red Carpet watching time will be spent throwing things at the TV when KStew is onscreen and screaming for RPattz and Tay-La when they aren’t. At least I’m consistent.) My point here, is that if The Hills finale runs the hour before the awards, then when will Mtv show me my live arrivals?? WHEN WHEN WHEN???

4. Letter campaign. Sure, sure, we love our three leads, but what about the other Twi-lebrities? Will they be in attendance? We can only hope the entire Cullen clan makes a family trip of it and shows up together. (Wouldn’t that be adorable??) To further their exposure, I’ve joined Co-Creator M in a letter writing campaign to replace performer Eminem with Jackson Rathbone’s band, 100 Monkeys. Sorry, Marshall. You’re last decade’s news. 

5. Vocal warm ups. I’m going to have to reserve my voice for the intense amount of screaming I’ll be doing that night (BURN, neighbors!!), so from this point on, I will only communicate via text, IM, Twitter and FB chat. Unless Rob Pattinson calls me. Then I’ll break my own treaty.

The Mtv Movie Awards air Sunday, May 31, at 9pm. Don’t forget to vote for Twilight in all 6 of its categories!

PM (Breaking) Dawn

Posted in Mix Tape with tags , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by awesometeenmag

So we at ATWIM are admittedly pretty good at indulging our inner (pre-) teen. We love a good gab sesh with friends, crushing on RPattz and practicing writing Mrs. Co-Creator A or M Cullen in our work planners. So it should be no surprise to you that we’re compiling a mix tape to honor all things Twilight. From Rosalie’s angsty tude to Bella and Edward’s love affair, we’ve found songs that fit them all and we’re bringing you the lyrics in a new department we’re calling Mix Tape.

First up, a song from before many Twilight fans were born. Co-Creator A has been saying for months that it’s THE perfect song for Edward and Bella in New Moon, so what better introduction to our mix tape than PM Dawn’s “Die Without You”? (Song available on iTunes. Mix tape available in our cars.)

Songwriters: Cordes Jr., Attrell, Steph

Is it my turn to wish you were lying here
I didn’t dream you
And I can’t sleep, babe

Is it my turn to fix you as my world
Or even imaginary emotions
Tell myself anything

Is it my turn to hold you by the hand
Tell you I love you and you not hear me
Is it my turn to totally understand
To watch you walk out of my life and not do a damn thing

[chorus]
If I could give away
The feelings that I feel
If I could sacrifice
Whatever baby, whatever baby
If I could take apart
All that I am
Is there anything i would not do
Since I’d
Die without you

Oh, I apologize for all the things I’ve done
Now I’m underwater and I’m drowning
Is it my turn to be the one to cry
Isn’t it amazing how somethings
Completely turn around

So take every little piece of my heart
Take every little piece of my sould
Take every little bitty piece of mind
Cuz if you do
Then I
Die without you
