Carlisle and Esme Chat

The ladies got together to talk about all things Carlisle and Esme! Rewatch our live video on YouTube with Amy (OhMyCarlisle), Mel (Rosmelie), Heather, and Kat.  

Save the Carver Cafe

Because all the indoor dining that has been closed due to COVID, the Carver Cafe is in danger of closing! The cafe was used in several scenes in Twilight, including the scene that Stephenie Meyer herself was in! 

You can help by buying items such as a t-shirt, bag, phone case from the Carver Cafe Merch Shop .

You can also help by donating to the Go Fund Me in support of saving the cafe. 

Lastly, you can buy from the Twilight Tuesday shop until Dec. 25 and the proceeds will go to the Carver Cafe. 

YouTube Live chat all about Alice!

Last Thursday we had our YouTube live chat all about Alice Cullen with some Jasper Hale chat on the side.  We were joined by Vee as Alice from the Olymipc Coven! If you missed our chat, you can watch it in playback.  

 

OhMyCarlisle Featured in Seattle Times!

AMy Taylor – one of the fandom’s most well known names – was featured in the Seattle Times this week.  If you follow OhMyCarlisle on Instagram, then you’ve heard the story behind it. And now you can read the full story!

“It came at a time in my life where I needed it,” she said. “The travel I’ve gotten to do, and the people I’ve met through all of this, I don’t think I’d have without ‘Twilight,’ and it’s made my life so much fuller.”

Most fans will probably agree with Amy that the series isn’t just about vampires and werewolves.  It’s about the connection we make.  

“It’s been really phenomenal to have built these relationships,” Taylor said. “It started with a book, but it’s grown to be something so much bigger.”

The article also features Forever twilight in Forks, the Unofficial Cullen House in Forks, and the Twilight Film display in Forks.  

You Voted! Now help us decide who to discuss first!

In our last poll, you all voted that you’d like the Thursday Night discussion on YouTube live to center around one character at a time.  We are going to give this a go once or twice and see how it works! We will talk about everything we can about the character from the books, films, Guide, and things Stephenie has said.

But who would you like us to talk about first?  Since we JUST did an all Edward chat on Midnight Sun, we are skipping Edward for now.  We will come back to him later.  And it’s difficult to talk about Edward or Bella without discussing the other one. 

So we’d like to focus on other characters first.  We feel it’s difficult to talk about a character if they have a partner or a direct connection to someone, Like Carlisle and Esme… or Jane and Alec.  So we’ve paired them up somewhat. Vote below for who you’d like us to devote an entire evening discussion to!  You may vote for TWO characters or combos.  The character or combo with the most votes by Sept. 27 will be our first discussion topic.  

Midnight Sun – All Cullen Discussion

We had a great time tonight chatting about the Cullens and all the things we learned about them from reading Midnight Sun. You can watch the play back on YouTube!

Tour the Swan Home in Portland!

The house that was used in Twilight for Charlie and Bella’s home is going to be featured on the Weird Homes Tour. For $25 you can buy a ticket to take a virtual tour of the home that has been restored to look like it did in the Twilight film! The tour will take place on Saturday, Sept. 26. It also seems that Bella from the Olympic Coven just might pop in during the tour!

       

Additionally, fans can rent the house and spend their vacation there! For $300-$400 a night, you and your friends can book a two night night stay in the five bedroom house. Be aware, there is only one bathroom, just as Bella says in the film! The house is located in Portland near the historic river front and is close to several Twilight filming locations that any fan would love seeing. Visit TwilightSwanHouse.com for more information.

Midnight Sun Thursday – what should we discuss next?

We will host Midnight Sun Thursday again this Thursday night at 8 pm EST on YouTube live on our YouTube Channel.  We will be discussing the new information that we have learned about the Cullen family from Midnight Sun. We will be joined by several familiar faces including Kara from twilight Moms, Amy from OhMyCarlisle, Mel from the Ladies of Isle Esme, Kallie from Twilight Series theories, and Savy from all those conventions! 

But the question is… what should we talk about next? We have thought of several possible topics and want your feedback. You can vote for three topics you’d most like for us to cover.  Please share the post with your Twilight friends so we know exactly what you want to hear! 

Thanks for being such a great fandom!
