SVC: Year in Review

I'm totally copying SM's brother/webmaster Seth's post about her successful year. See http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/for his post.

However, I wanted to focus this post on the serendipitous development of the SVC. On April 13, 2008 (I know because I saved the Facebook message between Alison and me), I got to know some of the best lady-husbands and friends I could ask for when the SVC was formed! And what a glorious day it was.

As 2008 comes to a close, I'd like to name just a few of the SVC's major accomplishments:

  • a website, tshirts, logos and playlists...not to mention totally awesome RPattz fridge magnets
  • several awesome karaoke appearances, including "Hitch Me Baby (One More Time)" and "La...Push It!"
  • meeting SM herself at the Mall of America signing of The Host
  • the Borders midnight release event for Breaking Dawn
  • new vampire lairs (new states, houses AND the Front with DJ Dirty Duke)
  • some baby vampires on the way (our own Renesmees! Awww!)
  • a crazy-fun and giggly midnight movie premiere of Twilight
  • several other awesome fantasy books, especially City of Bones and City of Ashes
  • innumerable photos with SVC fangs, especially at karaoke, dancing, and NKOTB concerts
  • many, many new friends here at SVC!
What are your favorite memories of the year? Please share! I know I'm missing a bunch of things.

I am looking forward to reminiscing on New Year's Eve with the other coven leaders at my lair. I am so thankful for you ladies! Happy New Year!

Team You Tube

Yet another Twilight video, with puppets.

I enjoy the fact that Edward is wearing a Team Edward shirt.

The lovely, sexy, dirrty locks are no more...see the Lex's story here:


I actually really like it. (ducks head) I like seeing that gorgeous face... What do you think?

Question of the Day (Weekend Edition)

I've been giving New Moon - the movie version - some thought, and wonder this:

How are they going to fill the time? There is so much of a time disconnect in the book that comes with Bella's devastation.

Do you think they'll show Edward moping and dealing with his own pain? Will Rob play a big part in the movie? Will they focus more on the wolves, leaving less to be explained in Eclipse (where I think the pack really evolves)? Seeing as though they stepped up the hot factor a bit between Edward and Bella in Twilight (kissing-wise, at least), will they do the same for Bella and Jacob?

This is a series of questions, I know, but it basically boils down to:

What changes to the storyline will they implement to New Moon's movie script (if any)?

New New Moon News

There seems to be a lot of talk and UNCERTAINTY surrounding the new Twilight sequel, New Moon.

So much so that new director Chris Weitz and even author Stephenie Meyer had to release statements explaining the situation.

But what about the reports that the studio, Summit, doesn't want to re-hire "baby-faced" Taylor Lautner as Jacob. Apparently, they don't think he has what it takes to play the werewolf love interest/lead in New Moon.

The statements released didn't confirm his return.

That was NOT an oversight!

Who is this New Director?

If you go to Steph's web site there is a new post for today talking about New Moon's Director Chris Weitz- and there is a message from the director himself. He was the director for one of my absolutely favorite movies, About A Boy! This makes me very hopeful and excited to see where he will take this film- can you believe that we have less than a year till the next movie?

DVD Info via Catherine

This is info from Catherine about the DVD-

"We just did the commentary," Hardwicke grinned when she came to visit our studio right after "Twilight" opened, revealing that she had spent time in an audio booth with stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart that very morning. "We were like, 'Is this the lamest commentary ever?' We were just laughing! I was thinking, 'Should we do something really serious with myself and the stunt guy and special-effects people and show aspiring filmmakers how we did those special effects?' But nope. We did the giggle version. [Rob and Kristen were] remembering the funny stuff that happened and the crazy stuff. They make fun of how they look in the movie."

Asked when the disc will arrive in stores, Hardwicke said, "I think spring. Maybe right after Valentine's Day." She then added even more information to the details she gave us about the DVD last month. "We have 10 deleted or extended scenes. There's some juicy stuff in there," she said, adding that one would correct an omission spotted by many Meyer fans. "I think in one of them, [Edward and Bella] do say, 'I love you.'

You're impossibly fat...and merry...

Maybe this has made its rounds already? A student mentioned it to me today. At times, I think the acting rivals the original ;-)

New Moon Movie Details

Check out EW's site for some news and a potential release date.

What do you think, should they recast Jacob?

What do you all think of this?

Los Angeles, CA, December 7, 2008 – Summit Entertainment and director Catherine Hardwicke jointly announced today that the filmmaker will not be directing the next installment in the newly minted TWILIGHT film franchise. Summit’s targeted end of 2009 or early 2010 release of the film, NEW MOON, does not work with Ms. Hardwicke’s required prep time to bring her vision of the film to the big screen. Thus as has been done before with many successful film franchises, the studio will employ a new director for NEW MOON.
“I am sorry that due to timing I will not have the opportunity to direct NEW MOON,” said Hardwicke. “Directing TWILIGHT has been one of the great experiences of my life, and I am grateful to the fans for their passionate support of the film. I wish everyone at Summit the best with the sequel– it is a great story.”
“Catherine did an incredible job in helping us to launch the TWILIGHT franchise and we thank her for all of her efforts and we very much hope to work with her on future Summit projects,” said Erik Feig.

Essence of Twilight

If you've always wanted to sniff Edward, or just like the scent of honey, lilac and sun (sun smells like...?), check this link out:


One of my eighth graders was really excited to show me this link today. I don't know that I'll order any of them, but it sounds fun! Smells fun?

They also carry a Bella scent (freesia and lavender), Alice (citrus and floral), and Jacob (woods and earth). AND they have Forks (forest and mist) and LaPush (ocean and cliffs...hmmm...cliffs smell like?) room sprays.

Cassandra Clare forum questions

In case you aren't aware of Cassandra Clare, she is the author of City of Bones/City of Ashes.

So today I was googling some of Simon's t-shirt slogans, and I found this, which is a thread on Twilight Moms where members are asking Cassandra Clare questions about her books. I've already found out lots of good bits that I didn't know (like Sebastian is mentioned in COA), and reminded of bits I did know but forget (like Jace and Clary having matching scars). So anyway, check it out if you are interested. Its kind of hard to read because there are so many posts, but after a while you get the hang of figuring out which posts are answers to questions.

Question of the Undetermined Amount of Time

Sorry guys, it really has been quiet around here. Every once in a while, I see some info that I think I should post, but then don't. Because I'm lazy. Can't speak for the other girls.

Anyway, my question is this:

Now that you've seen the Twilight movie (well, most of us have... I know we have a few readers in other countries who haven't seen it yet), what will you do with your time? It seems as if we all spent a considerable amount of time thinking about, reading about, and generally obsessing about Twilight. Are you going to continue to do so or is something else going to take its place?
