with a little help from my friends: Team Edward or Team Jacob?

I introduced this mini series last week, where I will introduce a variety of topics or questions, some serious and some-not from a variety of friends and readers. I loved reading everyone's thankful lists, and you can check out that post HERE. I always love hearing from different people from different backgrounds with different tastes, and I think that is what makes blog world so unique! I am also hoping that by featuring some of these bloggers, you will discover new blogs and make new friends! Enjoy!

if you know me or have followed this blog for some time now, know that i am a die hard twihard. (so if you cannot stand this series or a bunch of twihards fangirling, then now might be the time you might want to make your exit. don't say i didn't warn you. *wink*) so with the release of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 tonight at 10PM (yes, seems like everything is getting earlier and earlier releases these days - i mean, did you hear that Black Friday is getting pushed back to 8PM in some stores this year? craziness!), i thought it would be fun to hear from some fellow twihards and their answers to the question we have been asked since the release of the books: 



are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?


Team Edward all the way - since day one of reading the books! Edward's love for Bella was always sacrificial and selfless. I am also a sucker (no pun intended) for a complete gentleman - his "old fashioned ways" would have totally swept me off of my feet!


I am MOST DEFINITELY TEAM EDWARD. I love him and Bella together, and I think he worked really hard to keep her safe and happy. The chemistry between them is insane, and I can't imagine her with anyone else! Jacob just doesn't do it for me!

TEAM EDWARD!!!!!! Although I'm not sure I could ever date him, he's sexy and strong, and caring and sexy. The whole mysterious vampire thing works too. I just like how he's cool, calm, & collected. Did I mention he's sexy? :)

 Team Edward! What can I say, I like my men a little old-fashioned. Plus, he's been around so decades so he has to know what women want, right? Win win!

I'm on Team Edward! And not just because he is played by the ever-so-dreamy Robert Pattinson (don't even get me started on KStew). I'm on Team Edward because of the passion he and Bella have. While yes, Bella loves Jacob too, I think a relationship needs that undeniable, "can't live without each other" desire.

okay, so there is an obvious verdict here: TEAM EDWARD across the boards! 
and such a fun batch of twihards we had here today, don't you think?! love these ladies!

now you're turn:

are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
or if not a Twilight fan (congrats to you to make it this far through the post! you've impressed me!), what team are you rooting for? (this blog is friendly to all sorts of teams - Hunger Games, TV shows, sports teams, etc - so lemme hear you scream out your team!)

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}

  1. Team Jacob. I can't exactly put a finger on why ... my instincts move more toward the hot blooded than the cold blooded, I think. :P

  2. Edward! Jacob is too clingy and whiney!! :)

  3. Team Edward. I would say from the beginning but I read Breaking Dawn first by accident. I guess I fell in love with him from the end, back to the beginning, lol!

  5. I'm team Edward. Although while reading the books, I was totally team Jacob when Edward just upped and left. I was so mad at him ;)
    Much Love,

  6. Haha! While I'm not a Twilight fan, I'm a fan of quite a few other things... For instance, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings :D love 'em :) I mean, how sweet are Anakin and Padme together? Or Han and Leia? :) such lovely stories :)

  9. Don't hate me, but I'm totally team Jacob. Scrawny, sappy, pale vampire boys just don't do it for me haha. Besides that though, I would hate it (personally) if a guy was so involved in my life and watched over me so much. I need a little independence, yo! Jacob just seems more like the no-gush type and I love that. He's more like like "hey I'm here if you need me and I'll watch out for you, but I'm not gonna be your puppy dog... oh and have you seen my hot bod?" *drool* kind of have a little girl crush on t-lautz. Haven't read the books, and haven't seen part 1 of last movie yet because I was waiting until part 2 came out. I hate having to wait for a conclusion so now I can finally catch up on everything all at once.

  10. Wow, I'm so outnumbered! Team Jacob, forever. Mmmmmmmmm....

  11. Well.... in the books I LOVED Edward... I was on his team the entire time. I mean really when he shows up in the first book when Bella is cornered, swings the door open, and says "Get in"... oh I die. My favorite part!!! But then they didn't put that in the movie...

    and then they cast an absolutely incredibly looking guy as Jacob

    so sometimes I can't help it if I like Jacob a little more in the movie. He's just so darn attractive!

  13. At this point I have had no desire to read the series, but I am for Team NCIS. I love the show and Mark Harmon.

  16. Hi Ilene. This is sally. Making my first appearance on your blog for this important subject. I just wanted to say hi and go team Jacob 100%. He within a 100 years of her age and that's the end of that. Let's get coffee soon.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Haha! I don't even know Twilight but after reading this I'm totally team Edward!

    ReplyDelete
  18. TEAM JACOB!!! I don't trust Edward. Does he REALLY love her or does he just really love that he found the human whose blood he is most attracted too? I've been suspicious for a long time and I was still suspicious after he turned her into a fellow cold blood. How do I know he is not keeping her as a trophy like, "See I have self discipline when it comes to food, she is proof." ;) Enjoy the movie!!!

  19. I'm team chocolate. Because let's face it: chocolate beats a vampire and a werewolf any day. XD

  20. All the love for Edward here is creeping me out. Old fashioned? Selfless? Only if by old-fashioned and selfless you mean abusive.

    Check out helpguide.org's list of warning signs: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/domestic_violence_abuse_types_signs_causes_effects.htm

    Not only that, but vampirism is a classic literary symbol for sexual predation. Of course he's sexy. All temptation and evil is sexy. Otherwise we wouldn't do it.

    Go ahead and call me out on making a big thing out of a silly book, but I think its really unfortunate that legions of young women are holding up Edward as an "ideal." I really hate that cutting the break lines on her truck so that she can't see her friend Jacob is considered "aw, so sweet!" moment.

  21. Oh man you guys! Jacob all the way!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have to agree with the consensus- Team Edward, from the very beginning of the very first book. LOVE him. He's sexy, he's mysterious, his love for Bella is undeniable and deep. Le sigh, Oh, Edward.

  24. dude, you can't be team jacob if you read the book series!!!!!!:) TEAM EDWARD!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Totally agree with kBr above me! If you read the books there is no way you can have any other choice besides Edward.

    Just saw the movie today. I cried. It was amazing.

  26. Team Edward in the books BUT Team Jacob in the movies!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm not a big fan of Twilight but I did read the books a few years ago, and I'm definitely Team Jacob! I never liked how controlling Edward was, something about that always creeped me out. I guess I dated one too many overbearing guys so there is not one part of me that finds Edward sexy or romantic! Jacob reminded me more of someone I would actually want to be around :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Okay, actually...

    I'm team Peeta, team Captain America, team Thor, team Tony Starks...
    And Narnia? Yeah. I like those too.

    Never had any interest whatsoever in twilight, but through just looking at pictures of the characters in the movie, I'd pick Jacob. Edward looks way to creepy for me.

    Haha, now, if you do do a post about the avengers or the hunger games, THAT I would be interested in. :-D

  30. Definitely team Edward, but I wouldn't say no to Jacob either, who would? :p

    ReplyDelete
  31. Jacob is clearly the "hotter" one but the love Edward has for Bella is beautiful. Even though Bella wants to be a hoeski and lead Jacob on. Ugh. Don't even get me started on Kristen Stewart, lol..

  32. I would have to say I am down with the Wolf Pack! I am pro-Jacob from the books. Taylor looks just like my eldest nephew so when girls drool over him I get physically ill.
