Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Three of my favorite things in this entire world are movies, baseball (Go Red Sox!) and the “Twilight” universe. So needless to say, I’m really friggin’ excited about the one scene in November’s movie that will combine all three.

This week’s “Twilight” Tuesday focuses on the very cool Peter Facinelli, who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen. While speaking with him, I got super excited when he revealed an ad lib he put into the baseball scene, revealing Carlisle’s history of hanging out with Babe Ruth — and, much like myself, he cited the superpowered sequence as the moment he’s most eager to see on the big screen.

“Personally, I’m hoping the vampire baseball scene will be really fun to watch,” the actor insisted, saying that all those fastballs and leaping catches should jump off the page and onto the big screen. “I mean, you can only do so much with your imagination, when you’re thinking about vampire baseball [and reading 'Twilight']. But actually seeing that and hearing the cracking of the bat? The super-vampire speed? That should be fun to watch.”

When Edward kisses her and he is about to pull away so Bella throws herself at him before he lets go and they say:
Bella: I'd say I'm sorry,but I'm not.
Edward:And I should feel sorry that you're not sorry,but I don't.Maybe I should go sit on the bed.
Bella: If you think that's necessary.....

His mouth was on mine then, and I couldn't fight him. Not because he was so many thousand times stronger than me, but because my will crumbled into dust the second our lips met. The kiss was not quite as careful as the others I remembered, which suited me just fine. If I was going to rip myself up furhter, I might as well get as much in trade as possible.
So I kissed him back, my heart pounding out a jagged, disjointed rythmn while me breathing turned to panting and my hands moved greedily to his face. I could feel his marble body against every line of mine, and I was so glad he hadn't listened to me - there was no pain in the world that could have justified missing this. His hands memorized my face, the same as mine were tracing his, and in the brief moments our lips were free, he whispered my name.
When I was starting to get dizzy, he pulled away, only to lay his ear against my heart.

"Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me" from New Moon.

"He once again slid my ring into place on the third finger of my left hand where it would stay-conceivably for the rest of eternity."

"but ...when i left you, bella, i left you bleeding. jacob was the one to stitch you back up again. that was bound to leave its mark--on the both of you. i'm not sure those kinds of stitches can dissolve on their own." - Edward

"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars-------points of light and reason....And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly evertything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything"- edward

"Yes, you are exaclty my brand of heroin."- Edward

"Stupid, shiny Volvo owner."- Bella

"Bella: What do you mean by, 'keep an eye on things?'
Jacob: I mean that if you see a wolf running around your house, don't shoot at it."

'I don’t seem strong enough to stay away from you, so I suppose that you’ll get your way…whether it kills you or not.”

I've found out that NEW MOON is available in paperback in the bookstore I recently visited but decided not to take it because it would just break the point of the whole story! Waaa! huhuh.. But hey, I found out that this book is categorized in the children's book section! Hahaha! But now, almost all teenagers I know are reading it! hehe! while waiting, here's a short descrption of the plot in NEW MOON from wikipedia. ^_^

Isabella "Bella" Swan is thrown an eighteenth birthday party by Alice and Edward Cullen, the vampire she loves, and the rest of their vampire family. While unwrapping a gift, she receives a paper cut. Jasper, the newest member of the family to attempt a non-human diet, tries to attack Bella, overwhelmed by the scent of blood. In an attempt to keep Bella safe from the world of vampires, Edward and his family leave the small town of Forks. Bella enters a deep depression and seeks comfort with Jacob Black, an old family friend who clears the haze of Bella's pain.

Bella and Jacob spend more and more time together, and Bella soon discovers that the rush of adrenaline present when she places herself in dangerous situations stimulates a hallucination of Edward's voice. Bella begins seeking out dangerous behaviour, such as motorcycle riding, to keep Edward's voice with her. Meanwhile, Jacob finds out that he is a werewolf. Initially, he tries to keep this secret from Bella, but he eventually reveals as much as he can without betraying his pack. After Bella attempts cliff-jumping, she gets caught in a riptide and is rescued by Jacob.

At the same time, Alice Cullen, Edward's vampire "sister" who has visions of the future, has a vision of Bella jumping. However, werewolves are one flaw in her ability, and she does not see Jacob rescuing Bella. Presuming Bella is dead, Alice rushes to Forks to check on Charlie, Bella's father, while Edward calls Bella's home. Jacob picks up and informs Edward that Charlie is "at the funeral", referring to that of a man in town who had a heart attack, but Edward draws the conclusion that it is Bella's funeral. Desperate after Bella's supposed death, Edward flees to Italy to see the Volturi, peace-keeping vampires who would be able to kill Edward, granting him leave of a world without Bella.

Bella and Alice rush to Italy to stop Edward, and save him before it is too late. Before they leave Italy, the Volturi tell them that Bella, a human who knows of the existence of vampires, must either be killed or changed into a vampire herself. After they return to Forks, Edward explains to Bella that he only left in order to protect her, and she forgives him. The book ends with the Cullens voting in favor of Bella being changed into a vampire, much to Edward's dismay.


Haay,, can't wait to see the movie! I just came from the bookstore only to find that the Twilight is out of stocks!! waaa! Is it really that COOL?? hehehe! Anyway, I'll just have to wait for the new stocks to come...T_T. So, while I'll be waiting for the book, here are the Main Characters of TWILIGHT:

Main characters

Bella Swan - The protagonist of the series, Bella is perpetually clumsy and a "danger magnet"; she is often portrayed as having low self-esteem and not being able to grasp Edward's love for her. Bella has dark brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. An important trait of hers is her immunity to supernatural abilities that involve the mind, such as Edward's mind reading. Once transformed into a vampire in the saga's fourth installment, Bella acquires the ability to immunize both herself and others from the "mental harm" caused by opposing vampires' abilities.

Edward Cullen - Edward is a vampire who lives with a coven of like-minded vampires known as the Cullen family, who feed on animals instead of humans. At first, Edward feels a mutual hatred toward Jacob Black due to his love toward Bella. In Breaking Dawn, he comes to see Jacob as a brother and a friend. Like some vampires, Edward has a supernatural ability; his gift is mind reading, allowing him to read the thoughts of anyone within a few miles of himself. Bella is immune to his power as a human, but learns to let down her "shield" once she becomes a vampire.

Jacob Black - A minor character in the first novel, Jacob is introduced as a member of the Quileute tribe. He resurfaces in New Moon with a much larger role, becoming a werewolf and Bella's best friend as she is struggles through a her depression of losing Edward and being hunted by Victoria. Although he is greatly in love with Bella, she initially sees him as just her best friend. In Eclipse, Bella realizes that she loves Jacob as well; in fact, her love for Jacob is only eclipsed by her love for Edward Cullen. In Breaking Dawn, Jacob imprints on Bella and Edward's daughter Renesmee, thus ridding him of his heartache for Bella.

Alice Cullen - One of Edward's adopted sisters, Alice is described as "pixie-like" due to her small frame and spiked hair and her movement is noted to be very graceful and strikingly quick. She loves to shop, dress up Bella, and throw extravagant parties. Her special ability is seeing the future as soon as someone makes the decision to head down that path. This ability is very useful, as it gives the family forewarning to any dangers. However, she cannot see the future of werewolves. She is married to Jasper Hale, who is her soul-mate, and she loves Bella as if she were her own sister.

Jasper Hale - One of Edward's adopted brothers, and Alice's husband and soul-mate. He can sense and influence the emotions of people around him. He has the most trouble with the Cullens' "vegetarian" lifestyle, since he and Alice are the newest members of the family, and before joining them he spent almost a century living off human blood. He became a vampire sometime during the American Civil War. He was initially involved in vampire wars, creating new vampires and forming them into armies, until he met Alice and became a part of the Cullen family.

Rosalie Hale - Edward's adopted sister, who is self-absorbed and described as being the most beautiful person in the world. At first, she appears to play an antagonistic role in the story. She became a vampire when Carlisle saved her life after several men, including her fiancé, beat and raped her, leaving her to die. She is the wife and soul-mate of Emmett Cullen. Rosalie initially disliked Bella for her willingness to give up humanity to become a vampire, but her opinion changed once Bella fought to keep her unborn child in Breaking Dawn.

Emmett Cullen - Edward's adopted brother, and Rosalie's husband and soul-mate. He is described as being an extremely muscular and cheerful guy, with dark, curly hair and dimples; he also enjoyed cracking jokes about Bella when she was human. As a human, Emmett was attacked by a grizzly bear and nearly killed before Rosalie, who was hunting, interceded. She saved and carried him 100 miles to Carlisle, in hopes of saving his life by turning him into a vampire.

Carlisle Cullen - The adoptive father of the Cullen children and husband of Esme Cullen. Born in London as the son of a Anglican pastor, he is around 360 years old and works as a doctor in Forks. After becoming a vampire, he spent hundreds of years resisting the smell of blood so that he could become a doctor. He transformed Edward, Esme, Rosalie, and Emmett into vampires to save their lives.

Esme Cullen - As Carlisle's wife and the Cullen children's mother, Esme is regarded as sincerely kind, caring, and loving. As a human, Esme tried to commit suicide after the death of her newborn baby. She jumped off a cliff and was severely injured, but she was found by Dr. Carlisle Cullen who decided to change her into a vampire. Carlisle and Esme soon fell in love and got married.

Renesmee Cullen - Renesmee is the half-human, half-vampire daughter of Bella and Edward Cullen. Her birth nearly killed Bella, but Edward and Jacob kept Bella's heart beating long enough for Edward's venom to transform her into a vampire. Jacob imprinted on the baby, much to her parents' dislike. Renesmee's special gift is to allow others to see what she is thinking when she touches their cheek. As well, she can get past all mental barriers- including Bella's.

OK I changed my mind! I'll just buy (or at least borrow the book) and read it! November is still a long way to go and I don't want to get left behind! hehe! ^_^ Here's the Plot of the story, which makes me more interested on buying the book!


Isabella (Bella) Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington to allow her mother, Renée, to travel with her new husband, Phil (who is a baseball player). After moving to Forks, Bella finds herself involuntarily drawn to a mysterious, handsome boy, Edward Cullen, who turns out to be a 'vegetarian' vampire, (a vampire who drinks animal blood, as opposed to human blood). They fall in love, and must fight off a rival vampire who wants to drink Bella's blood. Bella escapes to Phoenix, Arizona where she is tricked into confronting James, a sadistic vampire who wishes to kill her.

New Moon

Edward and his family leave Forks because of his belief that he is constantly endangering Bella's life by his presence. Bella falls into a deep depression, until she develops a strong friendship with wolf shape-shifter Jacob Black. Jacob and the other wolves in his tribe must protect her from Victoria, an evil vampire who intends to avenge the death of James, her mate, by killing Bella. A misunderstanding occurs, and Edward is led to believe that Bella is dead. Edward decides to commit suicide in Volterra, Italy, but he is stopped by Bella and Alice. They meet with the Volturi and are let go on the condition that Bella be turned into a vampire in the near future. Bella and Edward are reunited, and the Cullens return to Forks.


The vampire Victoria has amassed an army of "newborn" vampires to battle the Cullen family and kill Bella. Meanwhile, Bella is forced to choose between her relationship with Edward and her friendship with Jacob. Edward's family of vampires and Jacob's pack of werewolves join forces to successfully destroy Victoria and her army of vampires. In the end, Bella chooses Edward's love over Jacob's. Jacob, devastated to hear of Bella's choice and her decision to become a vampire, runs away from Forks.

Breaking Dawn

Bella and Edward marry, but their honeymoon is cut short by Bella's realization that she has become pregnant. Bella's pregnancy progresses at an extremely fast rate, and makes her very weak. She nearly dies while giving birth to their half-vampire-half-human daughter, Renesmee, but Edward injects Bella with his venom to save her life by turning her into a vampire. A vampire from another coven sees Renesmee and mistakes her for an "immortal child", the existence of which violates vampire rules, and informs the Volturi. The Cullens gather vampire witnesses who can verify that the child is not one of the immortal children. The Cullens convince the Volturi that Renesmee is not a danger to vampires or their secret, and they are left in peace.

Ever since I started seeing this book on the bookstore, in school, and anywhere I go, I got more curious on what is really inside this book? Truth is, I still haven't read the book yet! I got more curious when almost all of my classmates have started reading the book! And there's also a movie coming this November 21,2008! All I know is that it's kind of a romantic story that even my guy classmates were touched by it and my girl classmates screaming at the top of their lungs when seeing a picture of the movie! Waaa! And the thing is, I don't want to get left behind! But I'm used to reading self-help books and not fictional books, So I guess I'll just have to wait for the movie to come! hehe! So, here's what's inside the book (I mean outside the book).

Twilight is a series of vampire-based fantasy/romance/horror novels by American author Stephenie Meyer. It follows the adventures of Isabella Swan, a teenager who moves to Forks, Washington and finds her life turned upside-down when she falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen.
