Procrastinating. :)

Friday December 11, 2009 at 8:11 PM

 So, I'm on Twitter...and Skype...and MSN...and yahoo....well you get the point. :)

I'm procrastinating to the extreme and I'm now in the mood to read. So, I of course, came here (TWSS) for fic recs. 

And sadly enough I'm very I'll list what I want. If you want to leave a comment telling me off for being so damn picky, go right ahead. I need it. Ah, so self-depressing today. Sorry. :)

Anyways, I want AH/AU. No Edward/Bella. And no Rosalie/Emmett. It's already bad. XP Erm...No high school. I need some mature people. You know. :) Anyhow I think that's about it. Not too much cliches. Erm..I think that's about it.

I think. I need funny pictures too. I really need to laugh.

Please & thank you. <3


Kellan candids

Friday December 11, 2009 at 8:10 PM

Gearing up for a flight out of town, Kellan Lutz was spotted toting his luggage as he walked through the Burbank Airport on Thursday afternoon (December 10).

The Emmett Cullen stud was decked out in all-black, laughing and chatting with his friends while briefly stops for a squirt of hand sanitizer before boarding his outbound flight. In related news, Kellan recently chatted with press about the “Twilight” saga, confessing that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are the keys to the series’ success.

“The rest of us, we could suck, probably,” Kellan told Zap2It. “It’s Rob and Kristen who have the amazing chemistry. Without those two keystones, ‘Twilight’ could have flopped. It really could have.” As for rumors of “Breaking Dawn” being split into two parts, Lutz tells, “They haven’t told the rest of us actors yet. I have read that they are talking to Rob, Taylor and Kristen to negotiate to make ‘Dawn’ into two movies. I’d love for it to be two films.”

Here's a video of him as well.

Kristen Stewart’s upcoming movie The Runaways will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January as well as her other film Weclome to the Rileys. Here are new photos of both.

Of all the bands to come out of the 1970s Los Angeles music scene, The Runaways are by far the most uniquely fascinating. This is partially due to their music but more so to the fact that they were teenage girls whose wild and reckless lifestyle was the stuff of legend.

Focusing on the duo of guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett and lead vocalist Cherie Currie as they navigate a rocky road of touring and record-label woes, the film chronicles the band’s formation as well as their meteoric rise under the malevolent eye of an abusive manager.

Acclaimed video artist Floria Sigismondi directs from her own script and her luscious camerawork captures every sweaty detail—from the filthy trailer where the women practiced to the mosh pits of Tokyo. What really makes the film cook are the sizzling performances by Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart. Not to be missed, The Runaways is an ode to an era and a groundbreaking band.

Trauma transforms us. Years after their teenage daughter’s death, Lois and Doug Riley, an upstanding Indiana couple, are frozen by estranging grief. She isolates herself in their immaculate suburban home. He philanders with a local waitress, anesthetizing pain with easy passion. When he loses his mistress to cancer, Doug, beset by further heartache, escapes to New Orleans on a business trip. Compelled by urgencies he doesn’t understand, he insinuates himself into the life of an underage hooker, becoming her platonic guardian. Meanwhile, Lois summons all of her remaining force to overcome agoraphobia and venture south to reclaim her marriage.

Exacting performances from three consummate actors (James Gandolfini, Melissa Leo, and Kristen Stewart) infuse this emotionally raw, gently humorous drama with penetrating humanity. Director Jake Scott’s debut refuses to flinch from uncomfortable moments or tie neat bows around its characters. Instead, it reveals how taking risks and leaving our comfort zone can become a profound path to healing the human heart.

 I know y'all are like me where your minds are constantly in the gutter. Don't deny it.

I want your stories and/or pictures of when you take something totally innocent and completely ruin it.

Your buildings:

Your drawing a heart in the air with a glowstick and a fancy camera set to a really long exposure (best pastime ever, by the way):


Or the times of boredom and finding...*ahem*..."naughty words" in a Word Search puzzle.


Bring on the dirt!





I'm resisting the urge to do like all those drug commercials on TV and make this obscure and hidden. Side effects include...

Do not take this drug if...

Last year around this time, Rod Hilton, creator of took an abridged look at Twilight. People seemed to enjoy it, so we made him go see the sequel. We hope that one day in the future, he can learn to forgive us




How do you handle reviews?

Friday December 11, 2009 at 3:23 PM

I was just reading the Anonymous Reviews? campfire and coupled with a few stories I just read...I'm wondering...

Are you a "don't say anything if you have nothing nice to say" sort of person? 

Are you a "Please update soon!" "Love this!" "YAY!" (short and sweet) sort of person? 

Do you review every chapter? OR Maybe you never review?


I'm in the "don't say anything unless it's nice" or sometimes just no review at all sort of person.  And I always struggle with critiques or CC.  Sometimes I get so flustered I just don't say anything at all. 

Reviews feel like job interviews to me at times! They're tough

Whatever, Gollum

So I got an interesting message from and ex of mine and it got me thinking...

Have you ever been in Bella's shoes?

What I mean is have you ever been considered too precious to corrupt?

How did it make you feel?

Loved and appreciated? Mad and frustrated? Ugly and unwantable? All of the above?

Did he ever give in? How do you feel about it now?

Rob's taking over the world

Friday December 11, 2009 at 12:07 PM

Hollywood's rapidly aging leading men could finally be in for a quieter life as the answer to every movie-mogul's prayer arrives in the shape of a handsome vampire.

Johnny, Brad and George have had a long and richly rewarding run at the box office.

But the holy trinity of Hollywood leading men is really beginning to show its age (Brad Pitt turns 46 on December 18; Johnny Depp is already 46; and George Clooney 48).

The major studios are now looking to Robert Pattinson, currently putting a bite into the box office with the latest movie from the Twilight vampire saga, to lead the next generation of bankable heart-throbs.

The 23-year-old English star of New Moon is having a dramatic effect on young women and movie executives alike. Pattinson is being talked up as the leader of the next generation of male stars with the talent and appeal to carry a major movie.

Hollywood has been waiting a while.

Tatiana Siegel, a reporter for Variety who covers castings at the four major film studios in Los Angeles, said British hunk Pattinson was "the most in-demand actor of the generation. Now the trend in Hollywood is not so much to have an actor who carries the movies, but a brand, like Twilight. Robert Pattinson is one of the few actors that the studios can build a movie around."

The sudden craze for all things vampiric has certainly rocketed Pattinson from promising beginnings (one of his first roles was in a Harry Potter movie) to international stardom.

His co-star, Taylor Lautner, is also hot property.

The 17-year-old piled on 30lbs of muscle for his role as the werewolf Jacob Black in New Moon. He has been quoted as saying he would never take his shirt off on-screen again, but teenage girls breathed a sigh of relief this week when he denied the comment, adding that he would strip off if the role required it.

Lautner is still very young but his co-star Pattinson now appears to have the movie world at his feet.

However, he should tread carefully -- his next two or three movies could mean the difference between achieving A-list status or ending up as yet another also-ran.



Shock and Awe

Friday December 11, 2009 at 11:33 AM

Hello Campers!

I have been going to lots of holiday parties lately and are a few of my reactions to what I have seen. What the hell is it about holiday parties and people losing their minds? 

What has someone done to stun or shock you lately?


I am going to be first on line!

The upcoming Universal theme park entitled, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has fans from all over anxious for the finished product. On the Blu-ray disc of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince viewers are given a sneak peek at the Orlando theme park before it makes its debut next spring. Over at Attractions Magazine they’ve managed to get a rundown of the latest additions to Potter’s Wizarding World, and some of them sound too good to be true.


Here’s the breakdown of the latest updates to the theme park.

• From the Three Broomsticks restaurant you’ll be able to cross over into Hog’s Head pub where you’ll experience a hog’s head growling and sniffling.

• You’ll be able to buy a butterbeer, which looks just like a real beer with the froth on top, but it’ll be non-alcoholic. J.K. Rowling was at a butterbeer tasting and loved it. Steve Jayson, executive chef with Universal Parks and Resorts said, “The flavor of this is great, real comforting, nice and smooth going down – and you get a mustache.”

• In Honeyduke’s Sweetshop you’ll be able to buy Chocolate Frogs, Every Flavor Beans, Cauldron Cakes and Treacle Fudge.

• Ollivander’s Wand Shop will be an exact replica from the film.

• To get to the Dragon Challenge ride (high speed roller coaster), you’ll walk through Champion’s Tent and see various artifacts such as the Goblet of Fire.

• The Flight of the Hippogriff ride (family friendly coaster) will center around The Care of Magical Creatures Class. Hagrid will give instructions on how to properly behave and approach a hippogriff. You’ll need to keep eye contact, bow and it will bow back. Then you can get on the ride.

• Hogwart’s Castle will feature the queue to the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride. The queue will feature a lot of moving portraits and will take you by or through the Defense of the Dark Arts room, the Common Room and the Great Hall.

• Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) described the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride as a condensed form of the chaos of Harry’s life. Emma Watson (Hermione) described it as the best moments from all the films.

• The actors filmed scenes specially for the new ride in the summer of 2008. A movie clapboard reveals the name of the filming as “Strongarm.” Some have speculated that refers to Universal’s partnership with RoboCoaster Ltd. and that Forbidden Journey guests will ride on some sort of robot arm, such as the one featured in the new Sum of All Thrills ride at Epcot.

• The ride will feature a life-size Whomping Willow tree and the large spiders from the movies will make an appearance.

Is it just me or does this sound line a Harry Potter fan’s biggest dream? Here’s the preview video featured on the DVD.

What do you think? Are you excited? Will you go?

Sophie's Choice? -- Masen or Cullen

Friday December 11, 2009 at 9:18 AM

I am in the process of creating an outline and character development for a story that I will be writing after I get grades turned in next week.  I'm trying to decide if I want my Edward to be a Masen or a Cullen.  Does Edward's last name make a difference to you?  Are there characteristics you might associate with one more than the other?  Do you expect Edward Cullen to be more in canon than Edward Masen?  Do your expectations depend on the type of fic?

Masen?                                                                                    Cullen?

Has fanfic ruined you?

Friday December 11, 2009 at 8:14 AM

This is my first campfire (*deep breath*) and I have a question for you all.

I've been reading some angsty books in RL and I think I am going to need something light and fluffy when I finish the book I'm reading currently (The Lovely Bones).  Usually my "go to" books for oooey gooey goodness are the Twilight books, but I haven't really read them since I got into fanfiction.  Here are my concerns: the first is that since I've read some really great ff the books will, how shall I say it, have lost there magic and I won't be able to get past the lackluster writing.  My second worry is that I'll insert traits from my favorite fanfics into the books.  For example, Bella will be la Bella (SG&tNG), I will be thinking of Edward from AiC and relating his resistance of Bella's blood back to that, broody Jasper from Salacious Behavior and Earnest Speaking, Embry, Jake, and the gang...well LBO has ruined me for them, etc.  I could go on all day (Preistward anyone?). questions for all of you lovely campers are have you read Twilight since getting into the wonderful world of ff?  And if so, did it effect how you felt about Twilight and your experience reading it?  Talk to me, bbs!

And here's a little Rob porn for your time.
