And now for this week’s sentence to finish: “My favorite movie of all time is…”
TWILIGHT! I could watch all five movies all day, over and over. Yes, I am one of those Twihards. No, I have never been to a screening, opening night, or have merchandise other than a calendar and a movie theater cup.
My son was about five/six months old and I was feeding him on my recliner. Twilight came on and since I couldn’t move I had no choice but to watch it. I was skeptical, but then I became hooked. Sure the plot line was different from any vampire movie I have ever seen, sure the idea of vampires that sparkle in the sun, don’t have fangs, and are immune to garlic and steaks in the chest was a new concept…but I was HOOKED!
I bought all the books and have seen every movie. Hubby’s coworker is always asking me questions through him, and of course I have the answers. Who is my favorite character? Well, I’ll tell you…WARNING, there may be some spoilers if you haven’t seen the ending, you may want to skip to the end.
Well…is it Jacob, the whiny kid who just couldn’t let go of Bella, sure in the end it was because his “soul” was destined to be with her and Edwards non-existent daughter…even a Twihard like me laughs at that. NOPE, not Jacob.
Is it Edward, the self-loathing vampire that needs to be put out of misery? Sure he realized he was an idiot and should have been thanking his creator, Carlisle, instead of acting like an annoying teenager. NOPE not Edward.
Is it Bella, the clumsy and needy human, who in the end is all powerful and saves her new vamp family? NOPE, not Bella.
Is it Carlisle, the kind and altruistic vamp, who treats his clan like a family and works as a doctor, never hurting any humans. NOPE Not Carlisle.
Is it Esme, the mother of the family, the one who lost her own baby and suffered abuse at the hands of a horrible husband? Sure I empathize with her, but NOPE not Esme.
Is it Emmett, the huge, strong, scary, teddy bear that protects and loves his family while having the brain capacity of a five year old? Sure he would be so much fun to spend an eternity with, but NOPE not Emmett.
Is it Rosalie, the one who suffered a horrible tragedy and never asked for or wanted this life? I would be bitter too, but in the end she was able to protect and help raise her niece….so it is her? NOPE, not Rosalie.
Is it Alice, the always cheerful and loving, psychic. She never remembered her past but woke up a vamp, but followed visions leading her to her man and mate. Sure she would have me dressed to the nines…so is it her? NOPE, not Alice.
Is it Jasper, the empath who was tricked, used, abused, and covered in bites as he fought in the southern vampire wars? Is it the tough and scary vamp who fights the urge everyday to not kills humans all around him? Is it the vamp who is always processing escape routes and battle formations in his head, while knowing exactly how to defeat any enemy? Is it the vamp who can become a lethal force and destroy all those in his path; but instead chose an eternity of love and peace because of his mate? YOU BET IT IS!!!!!! ! I LOVE JASPER! He’s dangerous, scary, and HOT. Imagine how different Twilight would have been if Jasper had been the lead vamp….swooons and fangirls!!!!!!!
UNF…In the books he is covered in scars…if only we got to really see what the scars really looked like…*sigh* if only.
Plus, the actor who plays him is even hotter….swoons.
And next week’s sentence to finish: ”I hit a turning point in my life when I…“
