Are you intrigued at my query? Or are you laughing (like DangrDafne prob is) about what a crazy place my mind is again? My mind does tend to get cluTTered up by Twilight stuff.
Inspiration comes from many places when you are a writer, consciously and subconsciously. I never 'got' the reason some people referred to that horrid part of Eclipse as 'the magical tent scene.' That is, until now. I do see a bit of magic to it in my own special kiTT perspective.
I had forgotten the story of Frosty the Snowman, well just the part that isn't covered in the song, and then mini discovered the movie at Christmastime. We DVR'd it and have watched it a lot since then. As I watched it, I couldn't help but to make a Twilight connection. I know! That like never happens to me! So I thought I'd better jot it down and share it before summertime hits.
You remember how the story goes right?
Magic in a hat
He comes to life
Laughs and plays
Melts away but
He'll be back again one day.
But remember in the movie he was traveling through all the snow to get to the North Pole and the little girl, Annie, followed him. She got tired and cold, because she is human. So he decided to carry her and realizes he needs to find a place to get her warmed up. But there were no cabins along the way or hotels. The further north he went, the colder it got.
"Your skin is pale white and ice cold.
You never eat or drink anything and you glisten in the sun.
I know what you are...
Is her mother's name Renee? Because this child is not dressed warmly enough for the outdoors, either.
At least Frosty was smart enough to have the forest animals build a fire to try to warm her up.
Cool story bro. Tell us again about the Third Wife.
See Edward, if only you had thought to do that. Those who fail to plan, plan to lose their girlfriend to the hot-blooded wolf during a night in a tent.
The fire wasn't enough to keep little Annie warm, but then Frosty happened upon a greenhouse--a warm spot. He went in there with her and tried to keep her company for as long as he could, despite the fact that he was putting his own existence in danger. With each higher degree on the thermostat, Frosty was sweating (melting), but because he loved Annie he was willing to sacrifice his own comfort for her health and well being.
And, you see, Edward did the same when he agreed to let the mongrel in next to Bella in the tent! He was willing to suffer through the discomfort of listening to Jacob's thoughts and his own jealous thoughts, all for the well being of Bella because he loved her.
Frosty is a childhood favorite. Edward is an adult favorite. We just really seem to love our icy, self-sacrificing characters.
Feel free to explain to me why you think the tent scene is magical, but for me, it took a beloved Frosty to help me find the magic in that tent.
And speaking of magic in an old silk hat!
(C'mon, how could I not have gone here?)
