Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

Ok, I just have to say I adore alice and edward equally.
Alice because she's just so much fun! And cute too.
Edward because he's so unique in his calm, cool way. And how hes entirely selfless to make Bella happy, even though all she does is hurt him. Sigh...i sure hope they end up together -_-

my least favorite character is jacob, because he's incredibly selfish and hurts bella to get his way. he doesnt even try to compromise the way edward does. I'm pretty sure hes gonna do something to ruin bella/edwards wedding in breaking dawn. but if bella were to have chosen jake over edward, he wouldnt try to interfere because he knwos that that would only be hurting bella. jake however doesnt see that far. he only thinks about himself.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

my favorite character is Edward and Jacob. I know, they are compleatly oposite, but i am unable to decide who i like better. Edward is always so calm, cool, and collected. But Jacob is fun, nice and always open to whatever someone wants to know, Edward always edits what he says. One of my frinds is compleatly obsest with Edward and the other with Jacob and i can see both of their opinions but i still am stuck in the middle as to who my fav is.

but my least fav is Rosalie, because just because she is beautiful and stuning and great with cars doesnt mean she has to be mean to Bella.But honestly i really dont have a leat favorite character, except for James, and VIctoria of course.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

i personally like Edward and Alice because edward is so selfless and is always thinking of bella and its cute how hes soo protective of her. and alice because she soo nice to bella and is actually her friend and helped her out after her 'accident' in phoenix.
my least favorite is jacob. i kinda liked him in twilight and part of new moon but then he became so selfish. i mean at least edward was trying to be nice to jake some of the time, but jake was always just soo rotten towards edward. and him like forcing bella to kiss him. he just got really annoying towards the end of new moon and all of eclipse.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

Edward. He's stunning, charming, and romantic. He's basically what every teenage girl wishes in a boyfriend..or a future husband. I really wish he wasn't fictional. Sometimes I find myself searching for Edward..no really, Edward Cullen. I really look around whenever i'm perhaps shopping with my friends or at school. It's depressing. Then I realize what i'm doing and I want to slap myself in the face. I've become emotionally attached to the twilight series. I think Gaspard would be the perfect Edward, minus the accent and his age. Has anyone seen him in Le Dernier Jour? He basically IS Edward in that movie. He was only about 19 or 20 then. Pity that the casting directors will probably make a mistake with him too like they did for Bella. Kristen Stewart? Come on! But that's just my opinion.

Least favourite, Mike Newton. He REALLY annoys me..to the bone. Haha.

-Elisabeth
Now let us all take a moment to mourn, for Kristin Stewart is Bella? Comment déprimer! I utterly disapprove of her.

Rest in Peace, the hope of a perfect Bella.

Gaspard Ulliel will always be the true Edward Cullen.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

i totally agree with all of u ppl that says thats their faves are Edward and alice!! whats not to like about them except the fact that they r totally overprotective wit the whole bella hanging out wit da wolfs scene, but of course they just want to protect her and thats really sweet of them to do^_^For me i basically like bella,when shes not so dramatic, da cullens(not so much for rosalie..srry..but emmet is totally hilarious)charlie,sometimes because he is always sooo hard on edward,angela of course cause she was bella's good friend,and sometimes jacob,when he is not a jerk..

my least fave is victoria and Lauren,da girl that took jessica to the bad side of the cafeteria table..

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

Jacob because i just feel bad for him. He's so sweet, and funny. and he just really loves Bella,like the whole King Soloman thing. i cried. I love jacob and he is just amazing. My friends think that he is running away at the end of Eclipse, but i beileive that he was running to get Bella. and in the end, Bella will chose him.

least fave: Mike. or Rosalie. its a tie. I did gain some likability for her after hearing her story, but i still don't like her. I think she's gonna play a big part in the next book.

I love to read and write poetry/lyrics and short stories. The layers of music fascinates me. Someday, I want to do movie soundtracks, maybe, or teach. The book to movie transition fascinates me to the extreme. I've been mesmorized by the way Harry Potter and Twilight and so many others have been brought into movies is something I think I would love to do.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

My favorite characters and Edward and Alice.

Edward is nice, charming, romantic...everything any teenage girl would want. Edward loves bella for who she is, not who she wants to be. Edward will always be there to protect Bella from Victoria and everyon else that tries to hurt her. Edward is a true boyfriend and he is the type of character that stays with you forever...i've read this bokk last school year and i still remember everything about him.

Alice is the sister Bella never had. Alice is like another mom or something to Bella because she'll always be there and she'll do anything for Bella and Charlie. Alice is another character that i remembers because just like Edward, he eyes are almost on every page. Alice is like a sister i never had. I have a sister...but i wish i could trade with Alice any day.

My least favorite character is...well...i don't have a least favorite because these are the characters who make the book more exciting. These are the ones keeping Bella and Edward together. But if i really had to pick one i would pick Jacob because if he's truly Bella's best friend or what not...he wouldn't try to keep Edward from her if he cares about who Bella loves bespite his love for her.

But these are my openions...they might not be much but...they're my thoughts.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

my favorite character would have to be edward or emmett.
edward, because after reading all the books, i felt i wasbella in the story (just a side effect of stephenie meyers AMAZING writing) and it fely like he loved me too :smileyhappy:.
emmett because, hes so fuuny and light hearted, if you havent noticed, the books arent your typical fairytale love story, theyre very dark (which i happen to love!) and emmett tends to lighten the mood every once in awhile.

my least favorite character changes, most of the time its jacob, although i reall feel bad for him, i cant stand him. but i love his presence in the story, it just makes bella and edwards relationship stronger. he's also very young and immature, he wants bella all ti himself, even thought he knows he will someday imprint and leave her. my second lest favorite character is bella (only at rare times though,) she gets on my nerve sometimes, how she's always nagging and she cant ever seem to make up her mind! i just wish she would stick to edard because he will never leave her, unless she wants, but wiht jacob thers always a chance because he's bound to imprint on someone someday

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

I'm surprised no one has said their favorite character is Carlisle. I think he amazing:] He is so considerate of others and very bighearted, even towards jacob when he was impaired after the fight.. although he might not have deserved it enough and he doesnt give the Cullens enough credit. Carlisle just seems like an all around amazing person:smileyvery-happy:

For least favorite..probably Jacob. I liked jacob alot at first..he was so happy and care free, but then later in eclipse.. yeah pretty much what everyone else said lol. Oh and that Jane girl also..she just creeps me out lol.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

                I love Edward and Jacob.I know who they are totally different,but i happen to like them both.Alot.Edward is Charming, polite, incredibly handsome,and the perfect boyfriend any girl could have.Jacob is your Doctor Feel-Good.he is there to cheer you up when you down in the dumps. Not to mention that they both are my favorite rwo mythical  creatures. But the bad part about both of them is that Edward can be a little too over protective, and Jacob can be really demanding. Like making Bella kiss him. That made me angry.but I still love him. I love both of them actually.I just can't decide between the two.
 
          My least favorite Character is Victoria. She REALLY gets on my nerves!
 
 
          I'm sooooo glad that Kristen Stewart is playing Bella. She is almost exactly like what I pictured Bella. But in the beginning I was Extremely dissapointed when i found out that Robert Pattinson  was going to play Edward. Honestly, Edward is supposed to be HOT. But when I saw the new pics of the Cullen family on Stephenie Meyer's website, he looked a WHOLE lot better than he did before. So i am pleased.
 
          And I have to agree with some people. I was a tad bit dissapointed when Edward came into the fighting scene too early. But over all, it wasn't that bad.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

wht is wrong with every1 how come hardly any1 likes jacob hes fun considerate and hes a real person he always comes up in the story and makes it tht much better.i feel srry for him b/c bella's dumb self cant make up her mind and she is just making him feel worse she knos edward wont leave her even if she gets some time in with jacob but while she does she is making him love her even more.she makes me sick.ugh!jacob might be young but hes doing all the things a normal teenager would do in his situation.and it sucks for him again because every1 in the story has some1 they love and is going after but him hes just by himself and doesnt have any1 chasing him for his love.and plus if jacob was real person i think he would be soo cute.
 
and my least favorite character is umm.....bella even though shes the leading role in the story she is always so helpless and is always getting every1 else into the situations tht they wouldnt be in if she didnt come around all the time getiing ppl almost killed.

Re: Who's your favorite and least favorite character? why?

Jacob is by far my favorite character. He's just a really likable person, and I know it pissed people off that he kissed bella in the third book, but you can't blame him. they were really close in new moon. anyway jacob black is the bestt; if he doesn't show up by the third chapter of breaking dawn, i'm ditching the book.

 

People are going to kill me, but edward is my least favorite. don't get me wrong, i loved him in twilight, but i can't forgive how he left. and the way he left too-- he was such a jerk. i don't buy the whole "i love u so much that im leaving u to protect u" crap. did he have to be so harsh??? i'm just a die-hard jake fan, so I kinda have to hate edward. edward just has no personality. he bores me a lot. for being such a dangerous thing, he's seriously incapable of having a good time. jake is more my kind of guy-- cute, funny, and warm.
