Thank you (: I am excited to see OTR!
It’s hard bc I struggle with it since everything went down but I will never deny her talent or beauty and I will ALWAYS be thankful to her for her part in what Twilight has brought to me. Plus I really do miss them together… so, so much. I think time will be the right medicine. I just want what’s best. I want them to find peace, I want them to grow, and I want them happy.
Oh, Anon. First of all, NOTHING I said when I answered my asked opinion about the Kristen/Rob/Rupert comparison to EB in my fic should be offending or affecting YOUR life in ANY way. And if it does, you REALLY need to step away from the computer and catch some fresh air. You’re questioning my age and ranting and raving like you are twelve years old, when my argument wasn’t bashing Kristen as a person (and never will), it was simply stating how I comprehended her particular actions in that situation. And worse, you’re sitting there hiding behind an anonymous tag while you question and lecture me??
Go lie down somewhere. Take a Benedryl and sleep it off for fucks sake. And when you do get up, here’s an idea: If you don’t like what I have to say, there’s a block button on Tumblr. USE IT AND STOP BEING A FUCKING DOUCHE.
I 100% believe in redemption, forgiveness, and true love, whether it be in story or in real life, but IMPO, the things you’re comparing between TEF and RK aren’t really the same. I hate to even go into it really bc I feel like it’s digging the hole deeper in my involvement (which I really hate doing as I’m just an outsider and now my stories are being drug into this), but I will say this: From what I’ve seen, K’s actions came out of seemingly nowhere for seemingly no reason whatsoever (as there were no signs of struggle in the relationship). She was very out in the open about what she was doing like she didn’t give a shit, and then she had the audacity to be out with Rob (who seems/ed to have worshiped the ground she’s walked on since the day they met & likely before then), holding his hand and loving on him the next night at a concert, pretending nothing happened. Both of E&B’s actions in TEF were very sudden overreactions to the other’s behavior. Neither person made a calculated and deliberate decision go behind the other’s back, and then lie about it afterward. In TEF, both were HIGHLY influenced by life and love struggles they were dealing with at the time.
Yes, I believe cheaters can be forgiven if and when they deserve it, and with Kristen, I think she has to EARN back his (and some of her supporters who never thought she’d do such a thing) trust and that takes TIME. It can’t just be handed out.
Forgiveness, redemption and true love are fragile, beautiful, special and rare things that are not to be taken for granted. So for me, personally, I can’t cover my eyes and pretend the girl I supported and believed for years is the exact same girl anymore, because it’s clear that she’s not. And the relationship I’ve loved and defended is not the same. Do I still love them for what they were? 100%. Do I still hope that they can find happiness, possibly in each other? If that’s what’s in the cards, then yes, 100%. But it’s not an easy thing to just ACCEPT and I would NEVER expect all of her fans and especially Rob to do so. And I’m sorry if that’s not good enough for some people but that’s how I personally feel.
I’ve done my best to say as little as possible because there are enough people “saying” (aka judging or denying
and making complete asses out of themselves) things about it & it’s really not my place. My opinion on it and on her keeps changing back and forth. I don’t really know how I feel, other than I’m still pretty pissed about it, and that I hurt for Rob. It’s definitely making me look at things in a different, more distant light — and I’ll probably stay distant about it until I can either let it go or separate myself from the subject all together.
