TTIC #25

This week, Twilight Tuesday has a 2 part challenge. One is to create a project showcasing what you love about Twilight (sorry gals... no time for that this week!). The other is to discuss what Twilight has meant to us. I have so many things I could write about here. Of course, my favorite scene is the meadow. I love Alice. The relationship between Bella and her dad holds a special, envious, place in my heart. So many things meant something to me... from just one little book.

But, I think I will discuss Chapter 11: Complications. I just loved when Edward asked Bella everything from her favorite color to which flowers she likes best. This part is special to me because it reminds me of when my husband and I just started going out so many years ago. That was us. Talking. Question after question. Discussion after discussion. Delving deeper into each other's souls further than we ever had with someone before. I think deeper than I had with myself before! I remember my face hurting at the end of each Thursday we had with each other. It hurt from smiling so much. That was such a magical time for me. I loved learning about, not only his life, but his soul too. I don't think there was much of anything we didn't talk about. And it was all so comfortable. Don't get me wrong... we talked about the "hard" stuff too. But it was good. It was good to talk to him about that stuff. And it was easier than it would've been with any other person. There was so much emotion too. Laughter, tears, kinda weird silences from time to time as we tried to digest whatever was just said.

It was wonderful. I loved that time. I love having deep conversations with him even now. But, those beginning discussions... those moments are precious. So yeah, I could tell you how rad the meadow scene is in my head (and how it was destroyed in the flick), or how much I enjoyed vampires playing baseball... but, that's what most people will tell you about. For me, this is a love story that is helping me to relive my own. And what a wonderful story it is...

Hey -- a brand-new blog! This looks great! I really enjoyed reading your post -- I LOVED those moments between Edward and Bella in Twilight -- all those questions, all that conversation. Before the movie came out, I was worried about this part -- knowing that movies don't usually show people just sitting around talking endlessly. They hinted at it a bit in the movie, but it was nothing like reading that part!

Thanks so much for sharing some of your Twilight story, and for finding us at Twilight Tuesday.com!

Beautiful post Alison! I agree, the movie did not do well with showing how those conversations is what made them fall in love...
Thanks for sharing :)
