Remember Our EP Read Along?

Hi all! Sorry we've been in a bit of a posting funk over here.

But I'm here today with some exciting news!

Emancipation Proclamation is indeed being published! The new title is Sempre (Forever) by JM Darhower, you can pre-order your very own copy! Just follow this link HERE.

I don't know what can be said about EP here that hasn't already been said. We dedicated nearly all of 2011's posts to reading the story and delving into these characters; their motives, their decisions, their relationships. We lived this story for almost a whole year. Some people read for the first time with our read along, others for a second or third (and you should know what an accomplishment that was, considering the length and detail of this story). I think I can speak for all of us here when I say we LOVE this story and cannot wait to see what Khar has in store for us with her retelling of her massive fic in a smaller book format.

This is the official description straight from her website:

This is a story about sacrifice... death... love... freedom.
This is a story about forever.

Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco had vastly different 
childhoods. Haven, a second-generation slave, grew up isolated
 in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and 
terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, 
lived a life of privilege, never having to answer for anything he did.

Both now seventeen, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide,
making them question everything they ever believed. Entangled in a 
web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface,
they have more in common than anyone would think.

In a world full of chaos, where money and power rule, Haven and 
Carmine yearn to break free, but a string of events that started
before either were born threatens to destroy them instead. Murder
and betrayal are a way of life, and nothing comes without a price--
especially not freedom. How much will they have to sacrifice? Can
they escape their pasts? And, most of all, what does it mean to be free?

Not everything is as it seems, and no one can possibly come out
unscathed, but maybe, just maybe, it'll be worth it in the end.

To read the prologue go HERE.

What are you still doing here? Go order! And remember that with every copy sold a donation will be made to LOVE146 to fight human trafficking.

Scenes I Hope Are In The BD DVD Extras

I finally got the Breaking Dawn Movie Companion Book!

I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I did flip through and look at the pictures.
Let's face it girls - that's really what we buy it for anyway!
I found a few pictures that made me think that some of the scenes that we would have liked to see in Breaking Dawn were actually filmed......and hopefully will make it into the DVD extras.

The Father/Son "Talk"
Yes, please let this be on the DVD extras!
How do you think this conversation will go?
Carlisle:  So, you have any questions know, the wedding night?
Edward:  Do you think Bella will care if it's sparkly?
Carlisle: Well, are you planning to have sex with her in broad daylight?
Edward: Oh wait, it doesn't matter because we're going to that magical place, Isle Esme, where I no longer sparkle in the sunlight.
Carlisle:  How about if I just give you this book.....
Carlisle, you should have given him some of these.....

Bella and Renee get together before the wedding.
Okay, we all wanted to see the seen where Edward and Bella tell Charlie that they are getting married.
That would have been hilarious!  But maybe Bella gets so spend a little time with Renee since she will never be able to see her again.

The Phil/Renee/Charlie Threesome
Yeah, that didn't sound right, did it?
I thought it was sweet in the book that Bella sees this image as she is driving away with Edward.  Of Phil's arm around Renee, while Renee hold's Charlie's hand.
So many kinds of love.  
Didn't make the final cut though.  Maybe we will see an extended version of the newlywed's send off in the DVD extras.


No need to say more here....

Breakfast with Edward
I think we need more happy go freakin' lucky Edward and Bella in Isle Esme.
That honeymoon was cut way too short - so let's hope for some extras and extended scenes.

Rosalie and Bella bonding

I have to say that the relationship between Bella and Rosalie gets  tons more screen time in Breaking Dawn than the Bella/Alice friendship gets in all the movies put together.  I get that Rosalie's support of Bella with the pregnancy is important - but Alice has been there for Bella from way back in the beginning.  There is so much they could have done with Alice and Bella throughout all the movies.
ANYWAY....sorry about that little rant.  I love Alice!  
It looks like there could be more footage of Rosalie and Bella that didn't make the final cut.

The Dog Bowl
The dog bowl scene was filmed!  Nikki herself confirmed it at the House of Blues Breaking Dawn Event that I went to with my sister, MrsKassieCullen and NaughtyHisBella!  We heard her say it with our own ears.  She even said Taylor wasn't there the day she filmed her part -so she had to talk to an X.
We came up with 2 theories.
1) It was cut from BD1 and will (hopefully) be in the DVD extras
2) It will be in BD2 - which would work.  We know that it really happens while Bella is preggers in the book, but with Jake hanging around for Renesmee in part 2, it could happen.  Hopefully we will see some of the fighting between the two of them and lots of blonde jokes! LOL

Since we are not getting any Rob and Kristen commentary on the DVD Summit,
can we please have some fuckawesome deleted/extended scenes?
