I thought Stephenie would like this...
I saw some of the chat-box regulars talking about a great site, Post Secret - I'm sure many of you are aware of it, basically people mail in their anonymous secrets - it's very addictive, often funny and always heart-felt.
So when I saw Sparkles and Christy chatting, I was reminded to check in and came across this secret someone mailed in.... with all the money that Twilight makes, all the hysteria it causes and all the media it generates, I thought this might make Stephenie smile.
Yes, Twilight is now a franchise, a machine (10 bucks says there's plans for a theme-park within 3 years) and even a joke to some - I can get down because of the product placement, promo and merch as much as I love it...
Because it means something more to us - whether that's the dream of the perfect partner, being strong when you're most vulnerable, or just the hope that that things work out for the best in the end *sigh* I dunno, sometimes simple reminders make you think hardest :)
P.s. It's been a weird week and I just read a rather emotional "Clipped Wings" update - I'm not PMSing, I swear ;)
