As anyone who has eagerly anticipated the arrival of a film, book, TV show or album knows, waiting can be painful. Such is the case for the very dedicated "Twilight" fans, who have nearly a full year to wait until "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is released in theaters.
For this installment of "Twilight" Tuesday, MTV News asked Twilighters how they're passing the time from now until November 16, 2012, and keeping their obsessions alive. They did not disappoint and came up with some solid, creative plans.
Our friends at Twilight Lexicon offered a shout-out to Internet stars/comedic sister duo Hannah and Hilly Hindi's "The Hillywood Show," who recently reached their goal of raising $10,000 to produce a "Breaking Dawn" parody. "Looking forward to the @HillywoodShow Breaking Dawn parody. They raised 10K to do it," the Lexicon tweeted.
Others suggested re-watching "Twilight," "New Moon" "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" and re-reading Stephenie Meyer's books that inspired it all.
"@Twilight movie marathons, re-reading the books for my 6th time and of course twitter :)," wrote Jimena Martinez.
Sarah M., who is one of the lovely ladies behind the Kristen Stewart's Hot Bodyguard Facebook page, seems to be developing a budget so she can come to Los Angeles next year for the premiere and camp out again in Tent City.
"Work, work, work to save $ for Tent City 2012 and hoping for some #SWATH promos/premieres w/ Kristen & @KStewsHBG :)," Sarah tweeted, referring to Stewart's other big movie, "Snow White and the Huntsman."
The most creative planning goes to Brooke Lockhart, who had these humorous suggestions for how to pass the time. "Watch all the B list character's awful movies," she tweeted, adding: "Live in Hot Topic. Pick a side in the robsten vs. nonsten epic battle."
Then there's a few who might — gasp! — take a break from it all.
"Finally sleep & save money 4 my 20+ viewings of #BD2," superfan TwiSherry revealed, adding later that she'll be reading again too: "Read FanFic to fill in the 'fade to black' moments." Sounds like a good idea!
Also, if these suggestions don't tickle your fancy, James Franco wrote a review of "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which is a nice meaty read that should take some time to get through.
What do you think, "Twilight" fans? How are you spending the time from now until the release of "Breaking Dawn-Part 2"? Let us know in the comments or tweet me @karawarner!
