[You know what? If we’re going to call this a ~*saga*~, I think we need more Vikings.]

Hell to the YEAH!

I don't care if "Witless Protection Program" is cheap, it's the best line in the whole thing. And that's saying a LOT. Brava!

(Although the rewrite of Frost comes very close.)

This was epically hilarious. I've been looking forward to your recap and it did not disappoint.

EDWARD: BELLA! BELLAAAAAA! You're supposed to pout for five minutes and then your self-respect crumbles and you let me in anyway! It says so right here in the book! This--this--it's like sleeping on the couch, only there's no couch and there's no sleeping! I'M SCARED AND I'M CONFUSED! BELLAAAAAAA!


This was epic. My coworker keeps asking why I'm laughing so much, but I'm too embarrassed to explain...

but then Peter Murphy came to snack upon them, and as our ancestors were Bauhaus fans, they felt deeply betrayed

I love you forever for that reference.

Peter Murphy was fabulous in his little cameo.

After rereading this for a... I dont'know, twelfth time or so, I finally understood what your version of Jane sounds like in my head - Azula's voice actress from A:TLA's Russian dub.

No words, Cleo. :D

It's good to know that I wasn't the only one confused by the opening sequence. I was kind of feeling like maybe they'd put on the wrong movie by mistake.

This was, of course, fantabulous. (In other words, it's so awesome, I had to use made up words.) It was made even better for the X-Men references. And the viking. I agree, it would all be better with moar vikings!

You. Win. At. Life!

This line...

EDWARD: And YOU! Stop running and FIGHT ME! To avenge the pain you felt when I ripped James’ head off, TORE HIM TO PIECES, and ROASTED MARSHMALLOWS OVER HIS BURNING CARCASS.

almost made me fall off my chair!

You're amazing Cleolinda.

I thought there was a lot of sexual tension between Riley and Charlie even though Charlie was unconscious.

"the third wife of our ancestors' chief slew herself so to as to distract the Other Cold One with her blood, because she couldn't possibly just cut her finger or something."

This part totally reminded me of the scene in Deep Blue Sea where the British biologist stabs her hand in an attempt to draw the shark over and dives like 10 feet out into the ocean instead of letting some of the blood spill into the water. Then the shark eats her because she couldn't climb out in time. Unnecessary death.

Also was Rosalie actually gang raped to death? I always thought that was what happened in the book. In the official Eclipse movie companion they talk about how she was simply beaten badly because she insulted her boyfriends drunkenness...

I always thought that was what happened in the book, yeah. And in the movie, it's very clear that there is some sexual predation going on. Like, "I told you she was pretty." "Hard to tell with all those clothes on." So... the companion book must be lying out its printed ass for the sake of being discreet, because... it's pretty clear.

I was actually going to say "gang rape" instead of "assault" in up there, but ended up going with a word I hoped was maybe less gratuitously triggery for people.

Words cannot express my love for you.
