Rachel from the New Moon Movie Contest- READ THIS!

I don't have the snarkiness, horniness, eloquence that the Letters To Twilight girls do, so I'll just serve as a vessel for them...

From Letters to Twilight:

Dear Rachel, runner up to, but should have been winner of the “Be part of New Moon” contest,

Your video entry was heartbreakingly, breathtakingly…amazing. I got goosebumps and chills and tears sprang to my eyes- you should have won this contest.

Your video was a perfect representation of that searing pain of loss and grief- of the theme throughout New Moon. It makes me want to pick up the book for the third time and see what I emerge with this time around. The first read through New Moon is always difficult because all anyone desires is for Edward’s return. The second read for me was shockingly different. I hated it and loved it all at the same time.

You should have won this contest, but I understand why Summit chose a rapping teenage boy… It’s easier- it’s simpler.. but it’s less heartbreakingly beautiful. So today, you’re our hero- You’re a representative of the fans of the series who love it for more than it’s vampire/werewolf (almost) battles and for the all-too-perfect romance. Sure we all love it for those things too (although I could just take the romance without the (almost) battles), but to so many, this series is so much more. Your video embodied that, so you are OUR winner!!

UnintendedChoice for both of us

Rachel, if you're reading this, contact me and I'll put you in touch, or go directly to the LTT girls HERE!!!


  1. I completely agree - Rachel's entry was the most original and profound by far - she had my vote!!!

  2. Agreed. It was so well done and honest. If given the chance I would have voted for her too.
