Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

[ Edited ]

Team Edward!!!

 

Jacob can be sooo annoying and he is - or was - being a jerk

 He is - or was - pushing Bella into something she doesn't want to do..Chose between Edward and Jacob.

Can't he just leave her be..She in LOVE WITH EDWARD.

 He making it harder...He may be fighting for the girl he THINKS he loves, but everyone know he doesn't really LOVE her..And what I'm saying is about the 'imprinting' 

 He tries to imprint on Bella, but he can't because there is SOMEONE else that he will love..I mean seriously...he needs to get over the fact that

 That Edward and Bella are going to get MARRIED and be together forever:

                      


Quote from Breaking Dawn:

 

"Don't be afraid," I murmured.

"We belong together."

I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words.

This moment was so perfect, so right,

there was no way to doubt it.

His arms wrapped around me,

holding me against him...

It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.

"Forever," he agreed.

__________________________________________________

Now tell me, If its 'FOREVER' it could only be Edward because he can make her live forever and Jacob cant

 

Both Edward and Jacob can live forever, but one has the power to make Bella live forever.

Answer Edward!

 

And Jacob wouldnt end up with Bella anyways because Stephenie wouldnt write the Vampire as 'the one' in all the Twilight series, only for Bella to end up with the Werewolf...  Sorry People on Team Jacob.....

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

Team Edward

 

I know I'm coming in late and all for this discussion, but couldnt help but see your point about Bella. She was my favorite character until she tried to seduce Edward.

 

Now Edward assumes the title of my favorite. So yes I'm Team Edward. The world doesnt need any more Jacob's. The only good quality he has is loyalty. I mean honestly, would you want a guy to waltz right up to you and kiss you even if he wasnt your fiance without asking your permission? Jacob is very selfish and just wants what he wants whereas Edward is more interested in what Bella wants and making her happy. Also he doesnt try to push her, but at the same time, he is much more mature than she is so he knows whats best for her too. He doesnt always let her have her way. But Jacob seems to be the kind of guy that would bow down and let her have her way all the time. Edward is a lot like my fiance. My fiance doesnt try to control me but he also doesnt spoil me too much by letting me have what I want all the time cause what I want isnt necessarily best for me.

 

Could be too that I just like Edward better because he's gentler. Girls tend to like intimacy and taking it slow more than forcefulness.

 

Ok I'm done...

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

Yes you would need to choose. You cant keep trying to hold one guy in one hand and the other in the other hand. Its not fair to either of them. And as we've seen its impossible for Bella to 'stay' friends with Jacob. His attraction and love for her would get in the way. So yeah I think she does need to choose.

didn't mean to offend with my post; it's just that it gets kind of irritating to read 500 i hate jacob posts, all with the reasons that he "trick-kissed" her and he won't let her go. dunno if u've started breaking dawn yet but bella makes it rly hard for jake to forget about her. she wants him around, and he can't help doing what she wants. it's sorta depressing. jake's a pretty good sport for having such a miserable life. i kno ppl think he's a baby about it but edward threatens suicide everytime he thinks bella will be out of his life. maybe i should direct my frustration at bella instead of edward tho; she's kinda the root of both of jake's and edward's problems.

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

no seriously edward was is the nicest most perfect guy EVER although he made a mistake like alot of people of have he made up for it he paid for it everyone saw that he was in alot of pain everytime that the subject came up because it hurt him so much that he hurt her and please like jacob has made no mistakes ever sure eh was there for her when she needed him but he hurt her to when he kept on pushing and pushing for her to choose when she clearly couldnt and when he kissed her and when he was turning into a wolf he was being so mean to her that really hurt her but no one seems to remember that they only remember the one bad thing that edward did to bella

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

that is so not even it the reason why people love him is becuz of his personality and how he is basically everythign about him ha he does not go against nature last time i checked being a 15year old boy that transforms into a big uncontrollable animal that at any time can hurt anyone if their temper gets out of control is not normal edward is there and he along with bella is the main character so whats the point of reading it if u dont like the main character in eclipse jacob leaves so if he is the only reason why u reead it well u may be out of luck what is so bad about edward that makes u hate him so much

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

thank u finally someone thinks exactly like me for real though ur right he is pushing and making things harder then they have to be if they were to end up being together hahaha never but if that were to happen and he were to end up imprinting on another girl imagine the heartbreak that she would feel he needs to let her live her life how she wants to and who she wants to live it with becuz he is going to make getting over her harder and they just arent meant to be like she is with edward he makes it so hard to be friends with him all the time she has to worry about what she is always saying to him becuz she doesnt want to break his heart and give him the wrong impression friends are supposed to be comfortable with each other they shouldnt have to worry about those kind of things

but one rong move with a werewolves and your pack food. nothing against werewolves but at least a vamp can hold his own without need his siblings to back him up.

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

Sorry no one can argue with Edward's personality over Jacob. Personally, I dont hate Jacob, but I dont care for his personality. I'd rather have a guy who was upfront and honest with me rather than Jacob who is very manipulative. And yes Bella does make it hard for him to leave. One thing I dont like about her personality is she has a hard time letting go. I've had to tell all guy friends who were attracted to me to basically get lost when I met my fiance. And Edward doesnt threaten to commit suicide if Bella leaves him. Its just the truth as to what he would do. And I think that is very romantic the thought of someone not being able to live without someone ese in their world. If I died, my fiance says he wouldnt know how to react and he said he'd probably be suicidal as well. In the end, Bella marries Edward. He sticks with her and is completely committed to the altar and beyond. Who wouldnt want a guy like that?

Re: Team Edward or Team Jacob???

I have actually started my own team. Go team Edcob! I am 28 and I love the books. I have gone from loving Edward to having my heart broken and then having life brought back to my heart. The same goes for Jacob but in a different order. I started out very much disliking Jacob then I realized his necessity for Bella and his love for Nessie. The Twilight series needed both characters to evolve into the great books that Stephenie has written. I only wish she would continue the story. I truly believe that Edward, Bella, Jacob and the rest of her wonderful characters are not finished.

YAY! i didn't think there was a soul in the world who didn't like edward!!!

 

And BellaRin did u just say jake is manipulative and not Edward . . . Edward is exactly the opposite of uprfront. he lies all the time! and i kno it's to protect bella, but it bugs me. i like how jake thinks she can handle the truth. he doesn't keep things from her. and if bella were to choose jake, he'd be every bit as committed to her. IF U HAVEN'T READ BREAKING DAWN DON't READ THE NEXT FEW SENTENCES

SPOILER ALERTTTTTT

SPOILER*************************

SPOILER********************************

SPOILER************************************

anyway i do think it was rite for bella and edward to end up together in the end and jake was happy too, so kudos to stephenie meyer for finishing it the right way. but i have a question for anyone who has already read breaking dawn. did u guys like it as much as the other ones??
