French Trailer

I thought this was kinda cool to see, the New Moon trailer in French. I love that foreign versions always change titles, as you can see they've titled New Moon- Temptation and at the end it looks like Twilight was Titled- Fasination.

Question of the Day

Aside from Bella and Edward (I have to take them out of the mix, this IS a Twilight Fansite after all!), who is your favorite literary couple? I have so many, I might have to separate mine based on genre...

Edited to add: Here's a video of it!

Buffy Meets Edward!

An Open Letter to Stephenie Meyer

One of the other things the coven leaders and I discussed on Saturday night at my house was how much we want to read Midnight Sun in its entirety. Therefore, I am drafting an open letter to SM. Please feel free to write anything in the comments that you would like to add.


Dear Stephenie (Steph? Ms. Meyer? At one point I was convinced we could be best friends, but I really don't know what to call you),

I love your stories. I read Twilight in 2006 and was instantly smitten. I loved The Host (and hope you will make it a trilogy). I love the idea about a mermaid story. I love that you got to make a music video. I read fanfic at an embarrassing rate, just because it's a way for me to keep up with your characters. Breaking Dawn definitely wasn't my favorite, but it's your story, and Edward is it for me. This is why I wanted to write to you about Midnight Sun.

I understand disappointment. And while it is nowhere near your level, I've been in situations relatively similar to the one you are in regarding Midnight Sun. I took my sister to Europe as a gift for her college graduation in 2005, just to have her seek out Coors Light in pubs and beg to eat McDonalds (I hope you're not reading this, Meg). I somewhat found out my husband was proposing the morning before he actually did because I was reading my family's e-mail (my mom wrote to my grandma and didn't think I would see it - and I hope you're not reading this, Matt). I'm a teacher, and I can't count how many times I've put my heart into a lesson just to have it ruined for me by one student.

Thing is, even though it was ruined for me, I couldn't let that student ruin it for the rest of the kids. It wasn't fair. I had to let it go and make the best of it, because I couldn't bear to let the other students down. Because I'm a good teacher! And it all parallels - you're a good author, and I know (based on interviews you've given and what you've posted on your webpage and MySpace) that you don't want to let your fans down. So even though some random punk (Random Punk...Spunk Ransom...wait a minute...) decided to lift your partial draft of Midnight Sun, pleasepleaseplease don't punish the rest of us. Your posting the partial draft on your site has only fed the frenzy. If anything, you should see just how much your fans want you to write it. We miss Edward! The PDF you posted ranks high above Twilight for me, and that says so much.

I know you're probably tired of the vampire world, and understand that. But dammit (excuse my language!), Jon Bon Jovi gets up there and sings Livin' On A Prayer every night and acts like he loves it, if only for his fans' (high-priced-ticket-paying-fans) sake. I know I am treading on thin ice implying that you have a RESPONSIBILITY to write this, because I'm sure you've banked enough off the series at this point to do anything you damn (sorry!) well please, but I was hoping to revive the effort to persuade you to write Edward's perspective. Because I want to lay him down in a Bed of Roses.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

PS: Did you ever wear that SVC shirt ("Hitch Me Baby One More Time") shirt we made you? :-D

Random Weekend Observations

A few things of note:

Joanna Krupa's name was brought up when I was watching E! News and for a minute, I couldn't figure out where I had heard her name. Turns out, on Stephenie Meyer's original Twilight movie site (constructed before any of the actual casting had been made), she had listed Joanna as someone who looked like Rosalie to her. I totally agree. Anyway, Joanna is starring in an upcoming movie this year called Six Days in Paradise.

The SVC coven leaders came over to my house last night, and we had several exciting events occur, includingbutnotlimitedto me taking an embarrassing picture at the town festival of my husband with a former coworker he barely knew, simply because she was wearing a "I Run With Vampires/Team Edward" tshirt, toasting to Jace, some AWESOMEAWESOME LaPush mementos from Corinne, and a bird flying into my house at the end of the night (I think it was the Scribe Virgin at work). We also listened to Crash and Burn by Jesse McCartney, which (much to Alison's dismay) is totally a Jace and Clary song, as pointed out by Jes.

I just finished Evermore by Alyson Noel - Kari lended it to me, and I really enjoyed it. The ending was okay-ish for me, but for the most part, I loved it! There are sososo many parallels to Twilight! And I laughed out loud when I got to the end and realized the sequel (due out July 7, 2009) is titled Blue Moon. Niiiiiice. I am so checking out her blog!

Many, many random things. We have an exciting week ahead: a SVC baby shower, Corinne's birthday celebration, and we may get to begin planning for our girls' cabin weekend? YAY!

How not to act if you see Robert Pattinson on the street!

All the ladies out there- please! Keep your cool, this is ridiculous. I feel attacked just watching this, though I have to say if a mob of men wanted to run around me- i'm all for it.

Hot Twilight Star of the Day Pic

There are a ton of pics out there of Rob in NYC, he's filming his next movie- Remember Me. This is one of my faves, cause he's just taking sometime to himself...plus i realize that I really like a profile shot of Rob

Sexy Vampires Destroying the Nations Children!

This article is from the Gainsville, Fl paper- and it is a hilarious "tongue in cheek" article about the nationwide frenzy of vampires in our pop culture:

"Unchecked interest in vampires can lead to unfortunate summer wardrobe choices, rickets and diabetes. We can’t afford to lose our kids to these flashy, sexy, fly-by-night vampire impersonators who continue to fill their heads with untruths about the vampire lifestyle. Do your part and get your kids hooked on something safe like street racing or “sexting” instead."

Quote of the Day

I'm really impressed with the look of the New Moon Trailer- I'm a visual gal and I really love that New Moon is going with a more warmer golden tone to set it apart from the cold blue tones of Twilight. Below is an excerpt from an interview with the New Moon Director about the look of the film, more of the interview HERE

Q. You’re a very visual director. What’s your vision for New Moon?

A. We’ve got an amazing visual effects team. The whole idea is to use the full palette of colors, to have our shadows be very dark and to have our colours be very rich so that we can experience the full range of emotional texture. The idea is that this will look like a Victorian narrative painting in a way, with those medieval jewel-like colours as well as very glossy deep blacks, and for the composition of the frames to be classical. In some ways, this is going to be a rather old-fashioned film. There are elements that incorporate the latest technology and there are things that are very dynamic in the action scenes. But it’s more Dr. Zhivago than Iron Man.

"Major Party Foul Edward"

Funny or Die has four New Moon spoofs up! Yay, I love me some Twilight spoofing! Check out the other three HERE.

Question of the day: Gross or Awesome?

Its been going around for some time that KStew and Rob are dating. Emma Watson, from Harry Potter said this about Rob, “Oh god! He's absolutely hot! He's driving me crazy…But we're just good friends and can be on the phone for hours, because I know that there's something going on between him and Kristen Stewart.”

Hmmm.. if this is true, what do you think? Would you like them as a couple?

..I personally think Rob could do better...

While Googling One's Self...

So Erin, Kari and Alison spent some of the day googling the SVC, just to see what would come up and lo and behold, some odd and fun things did!

If you click HERE you can find the SVC as part of a REELZ CHANNEL Twilight Quiz!

If you check out THIS LINK you will find our dear Alison being quoted!

Also THIS RANDOM GUY WE DONT KNOW Twittered us...The Shiny Vampire Club: Quote of the Day from Mike Dexter/Carlisle http://bit.ly/qpbub about 16 hours ago from twitterfeed

SVC on Twitter!

So we've finally started a twitter account (I know, I know, way to get semi-up to date with things...). I can't promise that it will be super awesome, but it WILL have blog updates, and hopefully other musings or things from the coven. Check it out here: https://twitter.com/shinyvamps
Follow us and we will follow you! I plan on finding other twilight sites to follow, so check out who we are following as well!


From the Set of New Moon

Here's one of the first articles I've seen from the set of New Moon

As the extras disperse and pretend to be heading toward the makeshift school building, Kristen Stewart, reprising her role as Bella, is greeted by her four best friends singing her happy birthday as she gets out of her truck.

“Cut! Let’s do it again!” yells Weitz. After shooting the scene three times, the director asks for one more, “just for safety.” And it’s in the can. The enormous crew huddles around, preparing for the next sequence...

Quote of the Day from Mike Dexter/Carlisle

On Rob's Fame:

“I’ve talked to Rob about it, and he’s just paranoid all the time now,” Peter Facinelli revealed, admitting that the newfound fame does sometimes become difficult for his onscreen son. “Like, even to go down to the Starbucks, he’s ducking behind cars and does a roll-flip to the coffee shop. Then he gets up, and there’s nobody there — but then the one time that he doesn’t do that, that’s when there’s like 10,000 paparazzi jumping out of the bushes.”

Hot Twilight Star of the Day Pic

This was pretty much me on Sunday night!

A couple Twilight fans taped their reaction to watching the trailer for the first time. What's funny is that they react exactly the same as I did at the end with Jacob...except I was alone :( ...well I had Erin on the phone.

Thee Wolf Moon T-Shirt

Yesterday somebody made a comment on the Best Week Ever site about how Jacob should wear the Three Wolf Moon shirt so I had to figure out wth they were talking about.

Check out this shirt from Amazon and read the comments. Hilarity!

What? An internet trend I haven't heard of?

Jacob in the New Moon Scenes

So, while watching the New Moon scenes (over and over again) I kept focusing on the Jacob part and wondered: if what it looked like I was seeing, was really what I was seeing? Do you follow me?
I don't think that New Moon will follow the book to a T, but I was kinda feeling shocked that it looked as if Laurant had cornered Bella in Jacob's yard. This may clear things up:

Succubus Blues!

So I finally got around to reading this adult fiction book by Richelle Mead, who also authors the YA series Vampire Academy (among other things).

And I liked it! I was a bit worried, as a succubus is apparently a demon who gets men (or women, I suppose) to sell their souls for sex. And I didn't really want to read a book about the million sexploits of Georgina Kincaid (the protagonist). But I had heard so much about it so I decided to give it a try. And it was fun and not really about the stealing of souls for sex, but about how Georgina (the Succubus) is friends with vampires, imps, angels, demons, etc., who are slowly being picked off. You would be excited/surprised to know who/what the culprit is, but I can't spoil that for you! Obviously there are also some love interests and mystery involved. It was very entertaining, and I am going to request the next one from the library. Check out Richelle Mead's page for the series here
