Goodness knows I have many faults and weird quirks of my own, so I have no room to question anyone else’s motivations. With that in mind, and offering no judgment of anybody else’s opinions and actions, I would like to share my thoughts on a few subjects. What I am really saying is, please don’t come burn down my house.
I don’t really want to meet any person in the cast of Twilight in a Fan Situation. It would just be so unbearably awkward, I would be crushed under the weight of it all. I am fairly awkward enough with people I know; can you imagine what it would be like with someone I admire but don’t actually know? I would have no idea what to say except, “Hi! I am a stranger! I like watching you do what you do for work! Have a nice day!” (See? It would be awful for everyone involved. I respect them all as people too much to do that to them.) That’s not to say I don’t want to meet them, it’s that I don’t want to bug PFach at lunch with his family while I drool into his salad. I am hoping that some sort of situation occurs where we are all best friends forever…maybe I save the Twilight cast from a ninja attack, or we are all trapped in a night club together, or perhaps we will grow a deep, meaningful bond as we struggle to survive a zombie attack. I am open to possibilities.
Mostly the fault of a proper New England upbringing, I don’t like to refer to any person to whom I have not been introduced by their first name. By goofy shortened names yes, proper names no. I suppose I feel it’s a bit disrespectful, because as much as I watch the movies and interviews and all of that, I do not actually know these people in real life. Sadly, we are not all friends (YET! There is still the possibility of zombie apocalypse!).
And speaking of respect: It’s not that I don’t care if they are dating as much as I feel it is none of my business. If “Robsten” want to come out and declare themselves, then hooray for them. They are both adorable and I hope they are happy. But I hope they are happy no matter what. I don’t know them personally (YET!) but they seem like lovely people, so I wish them well no matter who they are dating, or not dating, or friending with benefits. And as there has been no official word, I feel it is disrespectful to speculate. I know this is a touchy subject for some people, so again I would like to ask that nobody come set my house on fire.
If you have any well thought out and non-stabby thoughts, I would love to discuss them in the comments.
