Ok, I promised a break from talking “teams”, so here it is!

A couple of days ago, I got to go see the new Harry Potter movie… at the theater… in 3D! I know, I couldn’t believe that I got out of the house without the kids, either.

I thought it was a good movie and a good ending to the series. It also brought to mind the whole Twilight vs Harry Potter argument (and I still don’t understand why you can only love one or the other). This comic also throws in a little Narnia and a little Middle Earth…

I found this on DeviantArt, by the talented EmpressFunk.

 

Click-y to make bigger!

 

There’s a lot of Twilight hate out there… but at least some of it is funny!

Are the team posts getting old? I’ll probably take a break from them soon, but I’m up to my eyeballs in preschool financial review and quarterly taxes so I’m going to take the easy way out this week…

Team Emmett! Because everyone loves Emmett.

 

I'll take one anytime!

 

Sorry this isn't as sharp as it could be... it was just to cute to pass up, though!

 

One of my favorite Emmett descriptions!

 

This one isn't a "funny"... but do you really mind?

Picture it: Seaside, June 2011. Al has just escaped the clutches of the dreaded toddler.

Who? Me?

 

The toddler who did unspeakable things to her. Let’s relive:

 

The horror!

 

This is not nearly as funny as you people seem to think it is.

 

In the following days, Al realized that it could have been worse, so much worse. She witnessed how the big kids “played” with Ken and Aurora.

 

Waterboarding, anyone?

 

They look oddly happy about the torture. Not to mention vacant.

 

In the end, though, I think Al had a good time. She got out and about, played on the beach, and made some new friends.

 

You're strangely two-dimensional for a panda.

 

On the way home, having a "snack" with a friend. (No snacking on friends!)

 

The end. Until next year, anyway…

 

Heh heh heh.

Picture it: Seaside, June 2011. Al goes to watch the sunset.

With the whole family in tow.

Including… the toddler!

 

It all started fairly innocently.

A nice, relaxing evening at the beach.

 

Everyone seems to be having fun digging in the sand. I think I'll give it a try!

 

Until…

 

Hmmm... the small human seems to have noticed me!

 

Well, she seems harmless enough! She's even kind of cute.

 

Are we going somewhere?

 

Does she look like she's up to something? She kind of looks like she's up to something.

 

Woah! Don't you know how to walk?

 

What, exactly, do you think you're doing?

 

Someone is very proud of herself...

 

Do you have any idea how humiliating this is? Not to mention what this sand is doing to my outfit!

 

Maybe I can just hide here for the rest of the week.

 

I’ve got one last quick post of Al’s vacay pics to put up in a couple of days.

Since we looked at Team Jasper last week (and looking at Jasper is always nice, so long as it’s not funny looking movie Jasper), I thought I’d do Team Alice this week. This is a team near and dear to my heart, considering youngest child shares the name and Alice is my very favorite character in the books.

 

Totally true.

 

I think I’ve forgotten to mention over the last couple of weeks that these are random things I’ve found around the interwebs… I’m happy to give credit if someone wants to claim them!

So, without further ado… Team Alice!

 

And she sparkles!

 

I still want to go to her slumber party...

 

It would be weird to always know things about your friends before they do, though.

 

Great clothes, fast cars... I think need someone to give me a ME a makeover!

 

Was there ever any question?

 

Really, I just want to BE Alice when I grow up…

You don't want to mess with Alice.

Picture it, Seaside. June 2011. Al goes to the beach…

 

Being a small, potentially sparkly, vampire doll, Al probably doesn’t get to the beach much. She seemed to enjoy getting out of the house, though.

 

Road trip!

 

I suppose it’s handy that the weather was overcast for much of our stay. We wouldn’t want to draw too much attention or anything.

 

I was hoping for something a little more tropical, like Isle Esme!

 

Because taking a doll to the beach and taking her picture is totally normal.

 

We look like normal people, right? Right?

 

I’ll have another post with some details of Al’s adventures on the beach, but here’s a little sneak peak!

 

A little sun...

 

...a little sand...

 

... a little history!

 

We love Seaside.

I’ve read a lot of fan fic. Much of it has tough subject matter. Many of my favorites have downright disturbing subject matter. For some reason this one, Hide and Drink, really got to me. That reason has a name and address. It boils down to addiction and how it affects everyone involved.

Hide and Drink is another very well written story from savage. It’s a pretty simple idea – What if Edward didn’t stop himself that first day? What happens when the vamp simply uses and drinks from the singer? It’s an interesting idea that makes for a very engaging story.

Edward kidnaps Bella and takes her on a whirlwind adventure against her will. Edward is damaged, dangerous and still lovable. Bella is beautiful, insightful and mildly irritating about it. Everyone is with their canon partners and mostly in character. Aro has a very quick but memorable appearance. I think that little meeting is exactly how it would have gone if Edward took this other path.

Happily Ever After? That depends on your point of view. This is one of those stories I really want you all to read and then come back and discuss. There’s some heavy shit in this story. Tell me – Am I reading too much into it? Is it really deep, meaningful and eye-opening in the way we hear about Oprah Book Club books?

More Teams? Of course! I’m really having a lot of fun learning about all of the teams… though some of it is a little disturbing. It’s an incredible sacrifice I’m making for y’all, wading through all of it…

Today, in honor of what will hopefully be a nice and relaxing Sunday at home, I’m doing Team Jasper. So to speak.

Beacuse really, who wouldn't fall into this category... in one way or another?

 

I did find that many of Team Jasper’s members seem to be preoccupied with his… skills…

Is it, really? I might need visual proof...

 

Quite a skill there, Jazz.

 

Of course, we wouldn’t want to forget his actual, proven talents.

Seriously, I could use one of these sometimes.

 

He's like a walking, talking "happy place"!

 

In closing:

I still don't get why they make him so funny looking in the movies...

 

Words to live by.

Today is my dad’s birthday. He probably has little knowledge of Twilight and he certainly has no awareness of this blog (I’m pretty sure he doesn’t even know what a blog is and he still seems mystified by email). Still, it seemed like a good day to do “Team Bella’s dad” aka “Team Charlie”.

A lot of the “Team Charlie” stuff is a more subtle humor than the other teams, but I suppose that is to be expected given Charlie’s taciturn personality.

Interestingly, a lot of Charlie Sheen came up during this search (I had no idea there was a “Team Sheen”!), but I’ll spare you that.

 

Nothing funny here, move along.

 

Pretty sure Charlie would agree with the sentiment.

 

This is the real "Team" to be on, though.

 

My personal favorite.

I leave you with one of my favorite Charlie scenes… though they cut it before Charlie’s best line!

There is a lot more to Eric Yorkie than just being the kid who says “It’s La Push, baby, La Push”. Remember he’s with the high school newspaper. He’s figured out the Cullen secret and is determined to expose them. But, how does he gain the evidence? And how will the Cullens respond when they learn Eric’s plan?

This is a quick, fun story that takes place during Twilight. It fits right in with Twilight events (Well done with a side of canon!) and I’m sure that when I reread Twilight I’ll have this story in my mind, running along side and filling in places I never before considered empty. Yep, it’s that good!

Suddenly Eric is a very important character. duskwatcher2153 writes an Eric Yorkie who has won a little piece of my heart.
