Sable Can someone please explain to me the whole Team Edward vs Team Jacob thing? I've read the books but I never understood the need for Teams for the two characters.


Nya Tomlinson-Horan-Malik-Payne-Styles Well, people decided to choose who they liked best or wanted to be bella. Either Edward or Jacob. As we all know, Jacob has never really liked Edward, and vise versa. Not just because of the treaty but because of bella. But I understand, I have never really liked the whole team situation. But it id basically fans choosing between the two.


Jennifer Ironside Spoilers alert

Good question. Love triangles are commonplace in paranormal romances, and often the reader finds themselves being torn between the two choices just as the main character does (otherwise the choice would be easy and there would be no story). By the end, typically the choice the main character seems like the right one, but the reader is not left with any animosity towards the rejected person (who often has their own happy ending with someone else).

However, in the Twilight books, many readers (such as myself) were put off by certain things about Edward, and the dynamics between him and Bella (he is controlling for one thing) and strongly wanted Bella to choose Jacob instead. Not only did the choice Bella make seem like the wrong one to many readers, but Jacob's "happy ending" was unsatisfactory (and frankly creepy).

Also, as the series became more popular, it became a common discussion point of who you wanted Bella to choose. After that I think it just turned into a marketing tactic (Team Edward/Team Jacob T-shirts etc.).

Now its commonplace to create Teams (e.g. Team Peeta vs Team Gale) even though readers may like both people.

Hope this helps.

Initially I did not either; and then I realized that the teams are very "specific" you either believe in "Love at first sight" or "You believe that the best life partners should be friends first" -- as a result of where I've been.....

I am on team Jacob.

Dara Edward.


Kristina Shepard Wolfs are way hotter but edward is a vampire which I think are cooler than wolfs(no offense to wolf lovers)so I'm torn so I'm team SWITZERLAND


Zafia In my opinion there are no teams. The wolves imprints on their partner and seeing as there was no imprinting going on with jacob/bella theres no team. Otherwise its just gonna turn into another sappy story like the one with Leah/Sam and Emily.

Mz_S TEAM EDWARD!!! =D


Maddie Desfosses Well, the reason for teams, is for people to show who they think should win Bella's love.

Wow! That sounded corny! :0

Allison Team Edward in the books and Team Jacob in the movie. Lets face it. Jacob was a douche in the books and Edward was romantic. In the movies Jacob was sorta hot and cared to watch out for Bella and Edward was ugly and weird. So i say agian Team Edward in the books and Team Jacob in the movie.

Andrea ❤TEAM JACKOB❤


Cindy I dont see what the big deal is, its just two different creatures. right?


Angela Shrum I think people tend to make a choice bc the character does. Even though personally, I feel there was only 1 choice: Edward. (100%, with no regrets!)


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

Team Edward is meant for the fans who love the sparkly guy with the mysterious brooding attitude.
Team Jacob is meant for the fans who love shirtless werewolves who growl at the guys who sparkle in the sun.
I'm neither because I don't want to be on one, but that's what the big deal is. *shrug*
