You’re a real person and people forget that
Today someone asked me if I would cry if I ever met “Edward Cullen.” Of course being a pro at answering the ” meeting Robert Pattinson” question, this one made me laugh. I answered, “Yea, I’ probably cry if I ever met Edward Cullen because we’d be in an alternate reality because Edward Cullen is a fictional character.” This earned a bunch of laughs. But really, REAL people still think YOU are Edward Cullen. For reals? It’s like asking if I wanted to meet Maverick from Top Gun and meaning Tom Cruise or Frodo and meaning Elijah Wood or Harry Potter and meaning… Harry Potter, I mean Daniel Radcliffe cause he pretty much IS Harry Potter.
It makes me think of the few times I’ve seen you in person at various events and cringing when people yelled “EDWARD!” or “Where’s Jacob?” I mean they’ve got to be joking, right? You guys AREN’T these characters… are you?? Am I the only one with a (sorta) firm grip on reality? Is that you laughing because I’m writing this on a blog called Letters to Rob and who could have a firm grasp on reality if they’re doing THIS? Well, stop laughing. I have a firm grasp! That’s what she said. Ok, srsly, stop laughing.
It’s kinda like when friends have come to various Twilight premieres and as I tried to get a great view, they kinda hung around in the back and when I asked why they’re weren’t clamouring to get to the front they said “I just wanna see that he’s real… to make sure I haven’t made up the last year thinking about him.” They didn’t really need to be in the front yelling Edward or body checking security to get to you, they just wanted to see that you were a real person… so when people ask me if I would like to meet Edward Cullen I gotta say yea, because that would mean existing in some alternate universe of Stephenie Meyer’s brain and seeing the place I read about years ago (now) and seeing that Edward Cullen is indeed real. But would I cry if I ever met you, Rob? NO. Sorry, pal but I know you’re real and I’m fine with that.
With a firm grip,
Has anyone ever asked you something like this? I mean do people really think I’m a nut for EDWARD? I mean sorta but not like REALLY! Also, I think this means I’m officially way to far out of the Twilight closet.
