Thank you

Hi everyone,

I've been thinking a lot and I've decided to stop. It's weird to finally put it into words, but it's also a relief. You know that I don't post since the end of May, after my cat became ill and ultimately died. It was a real slap in the face, a real self-questioning phase. Not because 'this isn't real life', the person who says that don't know a shit about fandoms and the true friendships they create. But because I feel like I have so much to do and that I'm running out of time, and now unlike years ago, there are many fansites and people who will be there to share Kristen's news, so I just jump on the other side. :)

If you feel like I'm giving up, just know that ItsOKtobeYOU is 9 years old. 9 years. 9 years ago I was 16, now I'm 25. From teenage girl to woman. Almost 9 years to post every day, to translate when the site was in French, to post in English and French when the site was bilingual, a site with 2.5k visits per day, a forum with 2.5k people, one million people on the Facebook page, 18k on the Twitter account... so no I'm not leaving neither the fandom nor Kristen nor anyone, I just leave at a time when everything is going well, and I'm sure, everything will be just all right.

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart all the people who have been there along the way, you know who you are, and all the people who liked ItsOKtobeYOU and the way I tried to support Kristen. It's been such a ride ! I grew up with you and lived such beautiful things, thank you thank you thank you.

I won't be a stranger I promise, I'll say hi from time to time.. and might come back one day! ;)

Salut à tous,

J'ai beaucoup réfléchi et j'ai décidé d'arrêter. Ça fait bizarre de finalement poser les mots, mais c'est aussi un soulagement. Vous savez que je ne poste plus depuis fin mai, après que mon chat soit tombé malade et qu'ultimement il décède. Ça a été une vraie claque, une vraie remise en question. Pas parce que 'ce n'est pas là vraie vie', la personne qui dit ça ne connait pas les fandoms et les vraies amitiés qu'ils créent. Mais parce que j'ai l'impression d'avoir tellement de choses à faire, de courir après le temps et qu'aujourd'hui à l'inverse d'il y a plusieurs années, il y a de nombreux sites et de nombreuses personnes qui seront là pour partager l'actualité de Kristen, alors je passe juste de l'autre côté. :)

Si vous avez l'impression que j'abandonne, dîtes vous juste qu'ItsOKtobeYOU va avoir 9 ans le 17 janvier. 9 ans. Il y a 9 ans j'en avais 16, j'en ai aujourd'hui 25. D'adolescente à femme. Presque 9 ans à poster tous les jours, à traduire quand le site était en français, à poster en anglais et en français quand le site était bilingue, un site à 2500 visites par jour, un forum de 2500 personnes, une page Facebook d'un million de personnes, un compte Twitter de 18 000 personnes... alors non je n'abandonne ni le fandom ni Kristen ni personne, je pars juste à un moment où tout va bien et où, j'en suis convaincu, tout ira bien.

Je tiens à remercier du fond du cœur toutes les personnes qui ont été là tout au long du chemin, vous savez qui vous êtes, et toutes les personnes qui ont appréciées ItsOKtobeYOU et la façon dont j'ai tenté de soutenir Kristen. Ça a été de sacrés années ! J'ai grandi avec vous et vécu de si belles choses, merci merci merci.

Je ne serai pas une étrangère promis, je passerai faire des saluts.. et reviendrai peut-être un jour! ;)


Team Kristen, always.

"Be happy and fuck everyone" and don't forget that "IT'S OK TO BE YOU !"

Vogue : Inside Kristen's Cannes Red Carpet Photo Diary

People talking about Kristen & her movies - compilation post

Jodie Foster

Vulture: Recently, you got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and your Panic Room co-star Kristen Stewart came out to give a speech honoring you.

That was the unexpectedly great part of it, really — reconnecting with Kristen. There was something really emotional about it, because on Panic Room she was that little 10-year-old girl who I just loved so much. I thought she was the coolest kid ever, and I couldn’t wait to meet her when she grew up. It’s so moving, really, to have her come out and do this kind thing, and I know it’s not easy for her. She’s a little bit of a shaking leaf, and it makes me want to put my arm around her and tell her that I’ll make her dinner, you know?

Both Kristen and Jack O’Connell started acting when they were very young, as you did. Is there a kinship there because of that?

I think there is. It’s a weird way to grow up, and you hone a strange survival skill. Everybody does it differently, but you are forever changed by that experience. So there is a kinship to it. I will say, both Jack and Kristen are just wonderful, genuine people. So much for saying that being a child actor screws you up! They both have prioritized and trusted their authenticity, and that’s really what has made them so real.
