Hey there!  We have had a busy week, but pulled through with a great podcast this week!  I would like to say thanks to Becka for editing the show this week, so…”THANKS!”  If it weren’t for her the show might not have been posted until next week!  (There probably wouldn’t be much news either, if it weren’t for the AWESOME volunteers we have posting all the good stuff!  So, “THANKS!” to Chelsea, Krystal and Kelly too!)

Now on with the show… we have taken the quirky and magial story of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and discussed several of the ways that it might correlate with Breaking Dawn!  There are SPOILERS about what we already know of Breaking Dawn, so this is your WARNING!  We have also dedicated part of the show to The Host, Chapters 12-15!  Our music this week is by Greg Laswell.  The song is called The One I Love.  At the end of the show there a few bloopers, and I also made sure to add some of the voicemails we recieved this week!  With our crazy schedules we did not have time to incorporate them into the show, but I wanted to showcase a couple of them because they were fantastic!

    breaking-dawn-midsummernightsdream-crazyness!!!!

    so much to talk about!!!!

    okay so im in the middle of your podcast right now and it is awesome as always…but one thing just got me so nervous….the theory about alec’s power making people get confused on who they were actually seeing ..you guys mentioned that this could make bella see jacob as edward …if this happened and bella was being affectionate towards jacob, and he thought that she actually wanted to be with him, this could become a big mess!…he could, in a sense, take advantage of the situation and things could go farther, romantically, than bella actually ever would have liked. …im sure you understand/agree why this would be a mess!…

    ..this entire midsummer nights dream thing is insane!! i agree that Leah may by helena, that would make the most sense…i just hope it ends right and, ..now this is just my opinion, and hopefully stephenie’s! haha…but i hope in the end edward & bella and jacob & leah are the couples !…

    [[[ the girl who said that she may have guessed the book in a couple of her theories, they are so awesome! i just still hope edward and bella work out...haha...

    .... the girl who is "SURE" about her theory...that is INSANE! awesome job! sounds good, makes me nervous but sounds like a blast of a read! ..and it ends happy so thats awesome!!!

    ... oh and G, awesome theory, but i dont see it in my book ! =[..err...
    and all this talk about tanya is bothering me!..i loveee edwardandbella <3 ]]]

    and i agree..i wanna live in my happy place too! hahah

    im such a hopeless romantic.

    …and kassie…the host gets really good, you wont be able to put it downa dn you will begin to feel that conenction you have been lacking! promise!..nothing compares to twilight, ever…but its so good!

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for geting the podcast out! I love it every week. I have been looking forward to this subject a lot.
    I wanted to mention that during the last couple episodes the sound has been a little funny. Kallie sounds very quiet and Kassie’s sound is louder so it’s difficult to adjust the volume. I have to turn it up to hear Kallie but then Kassie’s end is too loud. Just thought I would mention it in case it’s something that needs adjusting
    Thanks so much for all you do. You are my one stop shop for everything Twilight!

    regarding g’s suporter speculation it says fall in love all over again on the verry last page at the very bottom of the page

  9. Paige says:

    Hey, girls!

    I just have a question about your “Host” section of the podcast. Are you going to have a “supporter speculation”-esque segment for it? I think it would really add a lot to that part of the show! Just a suggestion!

  10. Jenbarn76 says:

    I don’t think MSND will play that big of a role… remember in Eclipse Edward talked about imprinting and compared it to MSND.

    I think maybe it will have to do with the imprinting and Jacob, not Bella and Edward.

  11. Alexandra says:

    just wanted to make a correction: in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Lysander and Demetrius are NOT brothers; they are simply born of equal rank, with Lysander perhaps having even more money/social standing (ahem, Edward v. Jacob), but Egeus believes Lysander won Hermia’s love underhandedly without his permission.

    just wanted to clear that up!

  12. Lisa aka Twihard Mom says:

    ok..i love you guys but something is up with the audio… I can hear barely hear Kallie!

    I can always hear Kassie really crisp and clear but

    Kallie sounds far away in every podcast I’ve listened to so far. I hate to criticize. :o(

  13. Liv says:

    At the beginning of the podcast you mentioned something about Stephenie always going to the “big cities” and how she never comes near you. Well, didn’t you guys JUST meet her on her book tour for the Host? She has never come to New York and I wish she would. Eventually she will though :]

  15. Liv says:

    aww i wish i was on the show…

  16. Hey ladies! I am going to try a new mic next week! Hopefully it will solve the sound problem!
    Thanks for letting us know!

  17. Amy R. says:

    “And then she gets pimp-slapped”….Hahaha I was cracking up.

    Kassie- The Host gets much better after this point. It took me up until chapter 16 or so before I really got into the book but then I finished it pretty quickly after that point. It’s definitely not Twilight, but it’s good! I swear!

  18. Laura says:

    The theory about the love confusion between Edward, Bella, Jacob, and Leah makes sense, my only problem with that theory is that since werewolves can read each other’s minds, Jacob would know that Leah had imprinted on him. If that is true, Jacob would have known that Leah had imprinted when he was exceedingly mean to Leah in the epilogue of Eclipse. Is Jacob so wrapped up in Bella that he could really be that cruel?

    About Alec being able to change who you see, I don’t think that would work on Bella. Like you said, she is going to have some powers but she already has some now. She has a very private mind that Edward and Jane cannot touch with their powers. Alec would have to be super-powerful to get around that.

  19. Cat says:

    That podcast was VERY interesting. Good job!!

    Can you please tell me where you got this song?? I love it! But I can’t seem to find it on iTunes. :(

  20. Nery says:

    Thank you for doing the Host Section in the Podcast.
    Brad Pitt! Brad Pitt! Brad Pitt! LOL

  21. Caitlyn "catface cullen" Partirdge says:

    i really love the podcast!! and i really love the added host podcast, i just finished it last week and i LOVED IT!!!! and i had a question, the song you used this week-i cant find it anywhere!! and ive fallen totally in love with. any ideas where i can find it???

  22. Mel says:

    No kidding, where have y’all BEEN my whole life?!

  23. Sarah says:

    LOL I love you guys Im a first time listener and have fallen in love with you guys!

    Keep up the excellent work :D

    The twilight perfume I heard through some connections of mine will smell like freesia, but theres a 10 percent chance this can be wrong :)

  24. Jenn says:

    Ok guys usually you’re great and I love the show and you tell me connections between characters and books that I have never thought about before but SERIOUSLY! If you are going to put together Breaking Dawn and A Midsummer Night’s Dream why didn’t you look up the facts about the play and not rely on the less than perfect memories from school? even just checking Wikipedia would have made this show sooo much more factual and enjoyable, please in the future look up facts before talking about something in your main discussions, looking forward to future shows,
    Jenn

  25. Abby says:

    heres my guess:

    Hermia- Bella
    Lysander- Edward
    Demetrius- Jacob
    Egeus- Charlie
    Helena- Leah? or someone new who loves jacob
    Puck- Alec

    now, midsummer is my alltime favorite play, so i was very excited about the parallels.

    about alec not being able to affect bella- hermia is not affected at all in the play. its lysander and demetrius who are bewitched by the flower. i do think that leah has imprinted on jacob. i was apprehensive at first about that, because none of the werewoves have imprinted on other werewolves…. but it occured to me that there arent any other female werewoves haha. but i also think that someone new could come and want jacob

    i think that all of this will happen before the wedding, since the story of the play centers around when they ran off to elope.

    also, something has bothered me. demetrius and lysander are not brothers!!! they are not related.

  26. Helen says:

    ABOUT THE HOT ACTRESS THING, THEY WERE NOT JUST LOOKING AT APPEARANCE, THEY WERE INCLUDING BODY OF WORK, POPULARITY ETC ETC. JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW BECAUSE YOU GUYS DIDN’T FIGURE THAT OUT. ALSO ONE QUESTION, DID THE WOLVES BURN LAURENT IN NEW MOON, COULD HE BE THE ONE COMING BACK THAT KNOWS OF BOTH GROUPS? IF THEY DIDN’T BURN HIM, HE DIDN’T DIE EVENTUALLY HE WOULD HAVE MENDED BACK TOGETHER.

  27. Helen says:

    OR HERE’S A THOUGHT, EDWARD AND BELLA ARE THE FAIRY KING AND QUEEN AND IT’S THE MINOR CHARACTERS THAT ARE IN LOVE TRIANGLES,

  28. Ris says:

    The Midsummer Night’s Dream effects may be due to Alec. The connection between Alec and Jane is seen in the books. It would be interesting if they had opposite powers. If Jane = illusion of pain, then Alec’s power may be the illusion of pleasure/rapture. With the illusion of pleasure, hijinks could ensue that could affect the characters’ relationships, but only temporarily. Alec’s power would not affect Bella due to her private mind, which would make her similar to Hermia whose affection never swayed.

  29. Michelle says:

    Hey girls!

    I think its so great of yall to be doing this for the fans of the Twilight Saga! I bet it takes a lot to keep from squealing out loud during the show along iwth the millions out there doing that very same thing right now. I can’t tell you how many times a day people tell me to calm down and quit fidgeting while i’m listening to your podcasts. the way i foung you guys is i was on itunes one day and i got the bright idea to look up the twilight series to see what i could find; just for kicks and grins. then your podcasts came up and i subscribed and have been getting them ever since and I love yall for that. it gives me something meaningful to do while i’m at work. but anyways, enough about me. i look foward to recieving your next podcasts and am literally counting down the seconds till breaking dawn comes out. well happy broadcasting and will hopefully visit you guys again!
