::Team Breaking Dawn:: Nikki Reed Confirms That Edward & Bella’s Honeymoon Will Be Filmed in South America!

Nikki Reed (aka Rosalie Hale) dished out some Breaking Dawn filming deets - when Hollywood Life caught up with her during the premiere of her latest movie Last Day of Summer.

There are many rumors flying around about where the "Honeymoon Scene" will be shot, So as soon we hear a confirmation on a location we will let you know.

::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday

Ok, my lovely fanfic addicts, I know your skin is probably gettin' twitchy by now and you've been hearing things on the feeds. There are fics that exist that are so captivating they will hold you until the final word. Well, Lab Tech Andi's been caught in that spell this week and pulled together a few viral fics that haven't been in the shack before. So, dig out your GPS and find the Love Shack deep in the forest of the Pacific Northwest, walk around to the blue door and knock the tune of "I Want A New Drug" and the password is "My Precious". Be Safe!


I could hear them at the edges of my consciousness but I wasn’t aware enough to know who was saying what.

“What’s wrong with her?”

“She’s not even blinking!”

“Her emotions are so chaotic, too fast for me to even keep up with.”

A bright orb swept across my vision.

“Well, her heart rate appears normal and her pupils are responsive. Andi? Can you hear me?”

“She looks like you when you’re having a vision.” A deep laugh followed.

“Hush Emmett, this isn’t funny! You haven’t baked her anything have you? “

“No way! Not after last time.”

“Is there anything going through her mind?”

“It’s just letters, all jumbled together; like the opening of ‘The Matrix’.”

“Turn off the monitor.”

When the screen went black, I reached up to turn it back on and felt someone grab my wrist. “NO! I HAVE TO TURN IT BACK ON!”

“Rose, hold her back so she doesn’t hurt herself. Alice, take her computer back to the house, there’s something on that machine. Can you find out what she was last looking at and then format the hard drive and reinstall everything?”

“No problem.”


I struggled against the bonds that held me still, but they were too strong. I had to keep that story! I watched as my machine flew out the door of the lab and my vision blurred with tears.

“NOOOOO!” I cried and slumped in the arms that confined me.

“Jasper, see if you can calm her enough to get her to sleep.” As my body relaxed and my mind slowed down, I slowly began to recognize that this was Carlisle’s voice.

“Maybe her mind needs something else to process; I’ll see if I can find her something to read that’s a little less consuming” Bella offered.

“I’ve got some Dr. Seuss at the house from when we tried to read them to Renesmee.” Emmett said with a chuckle.

“Um… No Thanks,” she objected. “I don’t think that doctor would be much help to her right now.”

The tears had stopped and my eyes were starting to close. When my legs started to give out, I felt myself get swept up and heard Carlisle’s voice float through the fog in my now very muddled brain, “Rose, Jasper, take her to her room and put her to bed. Bella will be back a little later with books and I’ll check her then.” That was the last thing I heard.


You probably want to know what happened, right? Well, I opened a link from an emailed that promised an instantly addictive fic, but it was probably more a kin to a computer virus for the brain. I don’t think I’ll be recommending that kind of trip this week, but I have a few safer addictions to offer just be sure to read in moderation:

Ok, my first deal is “Master of the Universe 2” by Snowqueens Icedragon. This in-progress, very mature, adult-themed tale picks up where the first story left off. Our beloved Fifty and his beautiful Isabella are on their honeymoon, discovering the joys of being man and wife, but something dangerous is brewing back home. People are threatening to destroy their future and the past continues to loom over them like a dark cloud. Can Bella’s love give Edward the strength he needs? If you didn’t read the first one when it was recommended, what have you been doing all this time? Go read it immediately so you can pick up the sequel. Must be 18 years or older.

Next is an amazing rollercoaster of a story called “Songbird” by SydneyAlice. On the eve of Alice and Jaspers wedding, a chance encounter between the Maid of Honor and a Rouge Groomsman in a piano bar leads to a weekend of passion. When faced with the consequences, will Bella and Edward overcome their differences and focus on what's really important in life? This tale is still a work in progress, but it will have you hooked from the first amazingly hot and steamy chapter.

Third, I offer “The Blessing and the Curse” by The Black Arrow. This recently completed fic details the wickedness in discovering your soul mate on the day of your birth. Esme only wanted her children to be happy and her children only wanted to make sure she died knowing that. So, by pretending she is falling for Edward, Bella is fulfilling Esme's dying wish. But sexy, possessive Edward can read her mind. Will she ever get into his? Can Bella forget the pain of her teenage years, and can she resist his relentless seduction?

Last, I give you “An Introduction to Swirl and Daisy” by m81170. This is a tale of firsts. A first kiss, a first dance, a first curse word shared between best friends. This is the tale of a boring young geek and the social pariah who thought the world of him. A tale of growing up. A tale that every person who reads it can relate to. This author also has a website designed to support The Fandom Gives Back by selling fanfic designed products, This site offers products for other fics in addition to the ones for Swirl and Daisy, so visit it soon to help out research for children’s cancer.

Now, since these are of the highly addictive variety and you’re going to want to stay awake, I’m giving you my highly coveted recipe for an “Iced Caramel Latte” (believe me, you’ll need the caffeine)

2 tbsp Hershey’s Caramel syrup (don’t use the ice cream topping version unless you have no other choice)
1 tbsp Sugar
1 cup of slightly cooled brewed coffee (I actually use French pressed coffee)
1 cup milk

Mixing ingredients
Combine coffee, syrup, and sugar. Stir until sugar and syrup are completely dissolved. Add in milk and pour over ice.

Now, I know these fics are going to keep you very busy, so I hope you read them with care. Until next week Tweet (FanFicDealer), Message, or email ( if you want to talk shop.

The deal has been made. ;)

(Hey look an email with the subject "Must read this fic". I wonder what this one's about... 'Oh Hi Alice' 'Andi, STOP! DON'T CLI-' *click*)

::Team Breaking Dawn:: Breaking Dawn NOT to be in 3D

I was all for the second part of Breaking Dawn to be available in 3D - I thought it'd be kinda cool to have Bella wake up and see with her sparkley new vampire eyes and the whole end battle with the Volturi in 3D.

However, getting back to the point, is has been confirmed that - for now at least - we're safe:

A major rumor making waves over the past twenty-four hours claims that the second part of Breaking Dawn “will be released in 3-D.”

Similar reports surfaced last spring.

Once again, they are false.

The site behind the claim, which warns visitors not to “fall for any casting scams,” is itself questionable.

A rep for Summit says, “Neither film is being shot in 3D,” and calls the rumors “fabricated.”

And a source informs that while 3D effects can be added during post-production (as they have with some recent releases), right now it is too premature to say whether either part of Breaking Dawn will be converted.


::Team Emmett: Kellan Lutz: He revealed his top tips for dealing with obsessed Twilight fans

Kellan Lutz has revealed his top tips for dealing with obsessed ‘Twilight’ fans – running and getting an angry dog. The 25-year-old actor – who portrays vampire Emmett Cullen in the movie series – admits the fan attention is sometimes overwhelming, so he has purchased a lady-hating mutt. Speaking about how he deals with fame, he said: “I can run fast now! I also have a dog that doesn’t like females.


Team Jasper ~ Australian Interview of Jackson Rathbone

There was a slight scramble last night when all of a sudden Facebook and Twitter exploded with news that Jackson Rathbone was going to be on an early morning television show here in Australia. It was very vague and we were trying to find out if Jackson had indeed snuck into the country unknown or whether it was a satellite hookup. I confirmed with the entertainment reporter that he was actually in LA (phew!!) and I quote: "he's in LA. nice young fella" if we didn't know that!!!!

Here's the interview..and might I add..he's just so darn adorable!!!!!
