Never Say Goodbye




*grabs new box of tissues* Okay *takes a deep breath* Twilight-Headed is coming to an end because, to quote Alice, "It's time." *shakes head, confused* Wait?! Did I just freaking quote Alice? WTH?! *inhales Jasper's calm* Okay, let's try this another way... *tries in vain to blink away tears that fall in a steady stream from my eyes, types* For various reasons we as a group have voted to end the blog today, on Christmas Eve, a la Seinfeld... before we jump the shark. But this is not goodbye:

Spank is NOT leaving the Twi-World, she is here to play stay. Spank remains on Twitter, and The League Mansion has not been abandoned. Those randy wolves from La Push will continue to eat us out of house and home, and, of course, my most favorite vampire (Jasper, duh) shall continue to exude his special brand of calm over me *wicked grin* Also, Spank will be unveiling a new Twilight-related blog in early 2010 that I hope will bring a fresh and fun perspective to the Twi-World. I certainly hope you'll visit me there.

I have grown so much over this past year within this special community of Twi-friends, and I am so incredibly grateful for each of you who have supported this fun venture between four friends who were joined by the love of a "little book" named Twilight. Though Twilight-Headed is ending, these friendships will never EVER end. I truly love you all.


*grabs last tissue out of the box and sings through tears* "Pick up the bags and get in the limousine. Soon we'll be away from here, step on the gas and wipe that tear away... One sweet dream came true today, came true today." *runs from the computer sobbing*




*sniffling* I'm going to miss this, truly. *glaring at Spank's empty tissue box as if it's the stupid box's fault* So, what can I say here? I love The League and have learned so much in this past year. Each one of my sisters-in-crime have brought something very special to my life. It's been an amazing experience to spread my writing wings with their support. *purposefully avoiding the obvious "Wind Beneath My Wings" segue there*

I, too, will still be around in the Twi-world. (Since I'm writing a Twilight FanFic, it'd be kinda hard to just up and leave, wouldn't it? My little FanFic home can be found at http://www.fanfiction.net/~meadowc.) I know that both Rain and Spank are thinking of creating homes for themselves in the blogosphere and I'm planning on bringing my special brand of nonsensical rambling to their doorsteps from time to time. I hope that you all will stick with us as we venture out into new beginnings. I'll remain on Twitter and look forward to the continued conversations with you, our fans. **group fandom hug**

I've said my farewell to this chapter of my life and have cried my tears. Life is about growing and changing, and I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us all. *looking around at the girls* We're gonna make it after all, girls. Wanna join me in a Mary-Tyler-Moore-Esque hat toss? Because if you don't, I'm gonna start to sob, and that'll kinda take away from the "Be strong, we're moving on, this is a good thing" message I had above. *humming the Mary Tyler Moore show theme and only missing a few notes because of sniffles*




I'll do you one better than a hat toss: *tosses @Little_Edward in the air once again for old time's sake*







*tears streaming down my face* I can't even begin to say how much these girls mean to me. Never before have I had so much fun while "working." For me, Twilight-Headed is more than just a blog we wrote. It's a sisterhood, a circle of friends, and for that, I am oh so very grateful. Even though I was late to the party, I've been 'talking' with my sisters here for a year now, and I know there is no way that will end.

One thing I will miss terribly is the hilarious and heartfelt comments from you all, our readers. You welcomed me so warmly when I joined Twilight Headed, and I love hearing your feedback - both here at the blog and on twitter. We honestly could not have asked for a better readership, and I thank you all. I will miss you *sobs* but I hope I'll still see you all on twitter, because I'm not leaving either.

I've also decided to pour my energy into my own blog. I haven't completely figured it out, but since I spend untold amounts of money on books (mostly young adult fiction), I thought it might be fun to have a place to talk about those books as well as the movies that come from them. So, yeah, Twilight will be a recurring topic, of course.

And, before I end up in the fetal position on the floor, I'd like to say thank you to Spank, Ginger & Meadow. For asking me to be a part of this amazing blog (because Meadow, I know you had some say in that even though you were technically retired at that point) and for helping me to find my way. I've learned so much about myself over the past months, and I owe so much of that to you three. I love you - each and every one of you. *ugly-crying deep breath* Smooches my friends.




*crying so hard I'm snotting* It has been an amazing year at Twilight-Headed, and in many ways I'm sad to see it end. I cherish my League girls and am so happy this has given us all the boost to move on in our own ventures. We've had the BEST readers ever. Seriously. I'm also not going anywhere. I'll still be on Twitter, as Ginger, will still live at The League Mansion with my girls and... I suppose it's time to share that I have my own personal blog. Yep, I've been holding out on you guys. So if you want to keep up with me and my family, you can find me at I Love Purple More Than You. I too am excited to see what 2010 brings us.

Spank, really? You said the wolves will continue to eat us out of house and home? O.o Have you switched sides?




NO, I am NOT switching teams *shudders* but they are like starving strays... I would NEVER date a dog *raises my brow at you* but nevertheless I cannot be cruel to animals.






*sighs and smiles* See? No matter what, some things will never change.

I'll miss you all dearly. Good luck in all your future endeavors and long live The Twilight Saga!

_JasHale said...

Good luck in what you all decide to move on to, you will all be missed dearly and I personally look forward to seeing all of you around in the future, in what ever shape or from it takes {grins slightly}

I look forward to seeing my favorite human/superhero Spank out there doing what she does best, making others smile. And, Meadow I would agree with your sentiment about growing and changing. It may not always be easy but it happens and by holding together, friends, family and loved ones can always see it through.

Again Meadow, Rain, Ginger and lastly and most importantly, Spank, I thank you from the bottom of my dead heart for your comedy, your tears, and for all you have shared with us.

I love you all.

I'm seriously fucking crying my fucking eyes out with fucking tears that are pouring down my fucking face. FUCK.

I am going to miss you girls on the blog so much that I have no words to express it except with lewd strings of sometimes audible profanities.

Meadow and Ginger were the first I had talked to on here and on Twitter (Meadow's love for FF had lured me in and turned me into a TwilightHeaded groupie) and Spank eventually decided that I wasn't crazy and that I am one of the humans that come close to sparkling in that #sparklefuckingtastic way (rainbows from my arse anyone?!)

I've enjoyed most every post (sorry, I can't stomach anything with Rob's chest muff showing) on the blog as well as the awesome personalities I've come to know and love on Twitter and IRL.

I love you girls and I am seriously bawling my fucking eyes out (Lancome mascara anyone?!) as I write this, fearing that I haven't written enough. You all were a staple in the Twi-World and the #EPICness of your blog cannot be imitated, no matter how hard they try.

I wish you luck in all your endeavors and now I'm gonna end this fucking novel before I run out of tissues.

I LOVE YOU GALS!! xoxo

I will miss this, as I found this blog a year ago when I was lost in a city where I had no idea where I was. It gave me something to look forward to each and every day. I love each and every one of you ladies, especially when I had lost my baby, all of you were there for me, and no amount of words can express my gratitude.

GallifreyReject said...

I will miss reading the blog ladies! You have cracked me up so much over the past year! Good luck in everything :)

Dear League,
I am so happy I found this blog and a lot of other girls that are, like me, addicted. My addiction has been secret for most of 2009, until my coworkers got addicted too, and we all started talking about it and I even introduced them to your blog. We will all miss you dearly, as your daily posts had become object of conversation here at the office. But, I understand that every good thing must end, and I will try to keep in touch with you through twitter and facebook so that I can ask your highly respected opinion about all things twilight. I will do my homework and follow your blogs!
Spank, Ginger, Meadow and Rain, you all have been very dear to me, and I want to thank you for the many many laughters you have given us this year.
Merry Christmas to all of you and the Twilight-Headed readers!

TIE said...

Well I knew today was going to be a doozie when before I had even had my coffee, I was offered *gag*
fruit cake, and now this...*heavy sigh* *heavy heart*
But a super hero has to do what she's gotta do,right??
Thank you so much gals(and Mr.Ginger too) for your wicked wit and banter and endless creative genius!
I for one have been blessed to find many dear friends as a result of this blog, and for this I will always hold you dear.So as I slide down this figurative bat pole one last time, I wish you love and peace and unsurpassable joy. Merry Christmas League!

I'll miss you guys! I love that your blog is the first thing that pops up when I type "twilight" into my URL bar. I'm looking forward to seeing where you are next and hopefully will still catch you guys on Twitter. You know I love to talk books.

Do I have to get all blinking, stuttering Bella in the Phoenix hospital on you?

I have had such a blast reading through your Archives cause I was beyond fashionably late to this party. I randomly found this place doing a Trending Topic search on Twitter for New Moon and saw Ginger's post about Mr. Ginger's review. Since then my life has not been the same! "Sometimes kizmet happens." I can't thank you ladies enough!!
Best of luck in your endeavors and again THANK YOU SO MUCH for your brilliance and hilarity!!!

Meghanface said...

Gah...
Jeeze.

You guys are still my favourite Twilight gossip source. =D

I'm going to cross my fingers and hope theres a psuedo reunion for Eclipse.

or when Robsten ties the knot.

Thanks everyone for your comments and *blushes* Thank you @_JasHale for your special comment. (Everyone follow him now...)

Merry Christmas friends!

Brenda Jean said...

Sorry to see you go gals, but I will see you around on twitter, and on your blogs:) Thanks for the cool posts this year!!

Ginger Swan said...

Wow @_JasHale, you really touched my heart with your amazing comment. Thank you so much.

And thank you to everyone else. Your awesome feedback and well wishes means so much to us. You are the greatest!!!

bjones0011 said...

Its too Sad to see this blog go.. So many times I have come here and laughed until I couldn't laugh anymore. I'm grateful for the friendship that I share with some of you, and I'm sure if I spent time with everyone I would love them as well. We will miss twilight-headed but what an adventure it has been thus far. Merry Christmas ♥B

katarinas mama said...

I will miss my fave Superheroes!! But, I'm on Twitter and so are all of you. We'll still exchange book rec's and snarky comments about all things Twi. (((hugs)))

Happy 2010!!! And cheers to new beginnings!

Spank Ransom said...

@rxmeds96 - I love your name. It makes me crave Valium every time I see you. And then I crave @_JasHale, my personal valium... #followhimnow

@Ginger_Swan - I know, right? I told you @_JasHale was perfect. *sighs*

@everyone else -- I am home sick for the last 2 days and in and out of consciousness and it has meant so much to check in and receive so many well wishes and love from you all. I hope our future ventures come close to what we have been able to bring as The League.

lilyb said...

I'll miss reading the blog. You gurlies were ace. :(

stephdc said...

omg girlies I can't believe this is the end. You have given me some of the best laughs I have had this year. I know this isn't goodbye but I'm sad to see the blog end.

Like S said above, we will still have our book group. I will still share the love of Jacksper with Spank. Will continue to read from one of my most favorite fanfic authors ;) and of course there is still twitter and facebook.

Thank you so much for providing so much entertainment to the twi-universe over the past year. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

*ducks head and sobs*

kmoye said...

So a year ago Gina said "kandis you have GOT to read this blog these chicks are just like us! they are moms and like twilight!" So I've been following ever since.

Thank ya'll for this blog. Seriously.
I wasn't aware so many women were like me until ya'll opened this door for me.
Thank you.
@meadow I will of course be reading your stuff.
@Rain I will definitely still be following you on twitter.
@ginger Bam said the lady!

Cue Hospital Scene

Whadaya, what? NO! NO!
You can't leave me!
Whatareyousayin' No! no!
Don't say that!
I can't allow it!
You wanna leave?
Whatareyousayin' No! no!
NO! NO! NO!

(ok, this is the part when each of you says:)

"Where else am I going to go?" I am right here. I'll be right here for you to enjoy each morning with your Caramel Brulée Late.

WELL? *taps foot impatiently* I'M WAITING...

Seriously.... Can we talk about this? Whose bright idea was it to cast votes after drinking a tub of eggnog? I'm telling PeterFac on you all. Daddy Cullen can fix anything.

...and another thing Spyder better not be responsible for this. *goes to find a spider swatter just in case*

sniff, sniff

Spank Ransom said...

@xylem -- OMG You almost make me wanna rethink this whole thing just for saying your getting a spider swatter! Love it!

Rain Storm said...

So, I thought I finally had the strength to come and read the comments. Uhh... NO! I don't have the strength! *sobs* You all are so incredibly amazing! Like Spank, I hope our future ventures will help ease the sadness - we do have things in the works. :) Love to you all and thank you for reading and laughing along with us at the crazy!!

bellaflo said...

Snif snif *blows nose*

I'm gonna miss you girls! but I do wish you every single one of you the best for the future!
I will try to follow your blogs and of course twitter.
Love you gals!
Thanks for a year full of laughs and fun!
Flo.

TwiHuntress said...

Thank you ladies, I have enjoyed all that you have brought into my life. You will all have success in all that you set out to do. I wish you luck, love and happiness in your future Twilight madness. Will always see you all on twitter!!! Thanks for the laughs, the companionship, articles, discussions and of course the wonderful videos and pics that you have shared with us all.

Thanks for the memories =)

dazzledbyhim said...

You ladies will be unbelieveably missed. *sniff*
But I AM a little bummed at never getting our super hero reveal after all...

M said...

Ok... Ok...

So maybe I overreacted a bit. Since it seems like this action is irreversible, I guess I'll have to live with it. With that I'll just say that I will miss your sidebras. Won't miss you cause I'll still follow your tweets (I am @xylem108). Yes, Ginger that 108 is what you think. *smirk*

@Spank: from you I've learned the power of the asterik. *uses asteriks unnecessarily to prove point*. Got my fingers crossed that Jacksper will have a better wig in BD since his Eclipse wig is already an epic fail. Congrats on finding love. Awww

@Meadow: Trying to find your fics but that link doesn't work... Fix it please? Keep writing those fics... If you build it he will come. Keep your Eddie love alive. (I don't know what I'm saying)

@Rain: I'll think of you everytime I see Kemmet's 5 foot peen.... In the streets..... on CK billboards. (Hey what where you thinking?) Got my fingers crossed they are scratch and sniff.

@Ginger: I'll miss all the Taylor admiration (read inappropriate lust) and keep my fingers crossed that you are able to avoid Chris Hansen and Big Daddy Lautern until at least Feb. 11. (don't worry, I'm avoiding them too). As a precaution tell Mr. Ginger to have some bail money at the ready. ;). Your personal blog is hilarious. I've read a few entries (super hero afraid of a roach? WTF?) and I've decided that you deserve your own tv show... Seriously... You could call it "Purple Madness" or "Pretty Purple Pottwibuff". Ok.... Ending rant now.

Oh and @Spyder: if you are lurking (andweknowyouare) I'll miss your...... Absense? *shrugs shoulders and thanks Spank again for sharing her asterik super power*


Missing the sidebras already...

@xylem108

WolfzJake said...

I've been on patrols and just now saw the post as I was leaving Gingy's gift on her pillow. It was on her laptop with a pile of tissues beside it. No wonder The League mansion has been so quiet.

I mean, I'm used to seeing Spank passed out on the couch, but now she's clutching an empty bottle of Patron with her Spankberry.

Even though the time has passed where you guys will be blogging, I'm glad to know that I'm not homeless on the twitterverse and will still see you all when I sneak in late at night. And I'll try not to leave my wet towels on the floor.

You're like family. You're better than family. We choose our friends.

Rob's Swiss Miss said...

It's over? You're breaking up with me? Nooooooooo!!!!!! [In the forest, it's so cold, alone...]

*sniff* You girls are awesome...I'm sorry I was only able to enjoy you for the last 6 months. It's been a fun ride.

@Rain - You know I <3 you, and as long as you're online I *will* track you down and trade pointers for stalking KSlutz and buying babies. No seriously, you know where to find me and I expect you to do so when you start your new venture.

@Spank - your devotion to Jasper and pimpage of your twitter peeps is unrivaled ;)

@Ginger - thank you for helping me never feel guilty for lusting after a minor

@Meadow - push the FF baby!

Long Live The League! (in our memories)

lickhimright said...

As I wrote in your previous post... I will miss you very much. You are the reason I have met my girls of the ravishim team... Love you all very much and will miss you...

It's sad... but I imagine that you have to do it... will see you on twitter girls.

Snarkier Than You said...

OK so as usual I am behind on everything and saw your post on my blogroll just now and said "NO! it couldn't be!!!" and raced over here to find my worst fears confirmed!

I have loved reading your blog. You guys inspired me and made me laugh and are one of the reasons I started Twitarded.

I suppose I understand on some level how the need to walk away might come up, too, but you'll be missed here and I hope to see you all around the Twidom in some capacity in 2010!

P.S. I am genuinely ticked at myself for missing the opportunity to be Junior League Member - sometimes all this procrastinating of mine really bites me in the ass {{{sigh}}}.

This site is how I ended up getting my name. I mean....what do I do now?

Valerie(momof3) said...

So I decided to check the blogs this being a new year & thought I should get better at reading all the blogs I live and I come to this? I'm so sad.
This has been so much fun. I rememberthe times when Jamie & ninja would race to be the first commenter. Those were the days.

It was fun while it lasted ladies. I'm going to miss the League. But we all must move on. Thanks for the laughs. I'll always be Team Jasper.
