The Twilight Series Inspiration

According to Stephenie Meyer, the writer of the Twilight series, the theme of this Modern Romantic Vampire movie is about Life and Love not Death or Lust. She began to write the story in june 2003 after dreaming two people having an intense conversation in the woods. One was a average girl and the other was a beautiful vampire. Stephenie was inspired from the following classics to write each book from the series: Twilight, ispired from Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice; Saga - New Moon, inspired from Shakespeare - Romeo and Juliet; Saga - Eclipse, inspired from Emily Bronte - Wuthering Heights; Saga - Breaking Dawn, from Shakespeare - A Midsummer Night's Dream. The movie is focused on Bella's point of view and the Cullen's choice to abstain from killing humans rather than to follow his temptations, to protect their family no matter the costs and goes from there to romance, adventure and breathtaking scenes. Stephenie Meyer had transformed a dream into a million dollars franchise, a saga with thousands of fans around the world.

Especially the teenagers were captivated with the story between two character from different worlds. On one hand, the highschool girl, new in town who is trying to figure out where she belongs as a newcomer in the highschool, and a beautiful, misterious vampire who everybody is in love with but who is untouchable. Somehow a strong and powerfull bonding is created between the girl, Bella Swan and the vampire Edward Cullen and it's just a matter of time for the girl to discover the secret of the Cullens. Caught between the strong love for Edward and the desperate attempt to keep their secret hidden, Bella finds herself in a world where everything seem to come from the childhood stories (see fantasy coloring pages for amusement). Another character appears in the middle of the action, Bella's childhood friend Jake who helps her through everything, but who can transform into a mythical creature too, a werewolf. Between the desire of becoming a vampire and spend an eternity together with the love of her life and the attempt to keep her family safe, Bella find herself in impossible situations, dramatic and exciting, and of course, insomnia inflicting.

A Gift for a Pal

This is a doodle gift for a friend, who was nice enough to lend me one of his pencil extenders for the evening. That's the girl he likes in the picture, or at least a image of fantasy of her from an aspiring animator / cartoonist.

Winter is Coming

This winter is going to be a rough one for me and the dogs that need rescued. I am very limited in space and I am really worried about how things are going to go this winter. There are so many dogs in the shelters, it is sick. This year has totally sucked and I can't wait till next Spring when I can take in more dogs... I know I am wishing away my life but I really can't wait till this year is over. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Man I should be able to lift a horse over my head at this point. Lol! The good news is I have a good number of really great applications and I am hoping that this Saturday is going to be a good day for a few of my dogs. Really hoping they get to go home! Plus there are so many dogs that need out of the pound before it is too late. This is a balancing act... Now if I could just get some of my long termers adopted... I really have no idea how some get adopted so quickly and other are around for months. Just absolutely crazy. Oh I hope all these applications I have received will actually turn into adoptions!
