Technically, I'm TEAM: EDWARD... but more realistically, I'm TEAM: "What the hell did Bella do to deserve either Edward OR Jacob?"
I absolutely hate B/J pairing. Bella and Jacob do not belong together, lol.
-If the Cullens had never come to Forks, Jacob wouldn't have been a wolf... ergo, he would have still been a scrawny little kid and not on Bella's radar romantically. If Edward hadn't of been around to "ruin" Bella for all other men, Bella probably would have ended up dating someone like Mike or Tyler in high school. By the time Jacob caught up to Bella in maturity, she probably would have already been dating someone else in college. And I doubt that at that point Bella would have wanted to date Jacob after that, which would have meant moving home and spending the rest of her life in La Push doing nothing.
-If Bella would have actually gotten with Jacob in New Moon, well, then she would have just been proving Edward right. The only reason Edward left was because he "knew" that Bella could move on with someone else, someone human. If Bella had moved on with Jacob, she would have just proved herself to be just as fickle as Edward thought she was. Bella's entire argument the night of the "vote" was asking Edward "how could you think I would ever love anyone else? my love for you is eternal, just like yours is for me". If Bella fell for Jacob, it would have meant that Bella's love for Edward wasn't as strong as she thought it was, and Edward would have been right all along, and justified in leaving Bella.
Things that annoy me about Bella...
-She isn't as selfless as everyone thinks she is. She does a couple of nice things in the books (going to Forks in the first place, sacrificing herself for Edward), but besides that, she spends the rest of the book series being a whiny baby. Like when she throws tantrums because people want to have parties for her and give her gifts. She doesn't care about how happy it makes them, that's selfish.
-She constantly wants to have her cake and eat it too... leading on both Edward and Jacob in Eclipse, using each of them when it is convenient for her, not caring about how that makes them feel.
-She is the queen of double standards... she freaks out about Tanya, when she herself is damn near cheating on Edward with Jacob most of the time. I don't care who you are... holding hands, snuggling, and kissing another guy is not ok if you have a boyfriend... when that other guy has made it clear that he wants in your pants and isn't just a platonic friend. She get's pissed at Edward for making decisions for her, lying to her, and leaving her for "her own good" in New Moon... yet that's the exact same thing she did to Charlie in Twilight when James was tracking her. If Bella would have died in the ballet studio, Charlie would have lived the rest of his life thinking Bella hated him. Why is it ok for Bella to pull that stunt, and not Edward? Hardly anyone ever brings up the hell she put Charlie through in Twilight.
-She has a temper, but uses it at all of the wrong times... like when Edward is trying to take care of her. If you want to be an independent woman, that's cool, just be consistent for goodness sakes. You can't ride both sides of the fence. If you want to be an equal... act like an equal, not a two year old.
Things that piss me off about Jacob...
-He is selfish and a major hypocrite. He rants and raves about how much Edward has hurt Bella... when he himself has hurt Bella a lot as well. He hurt Bella when he first turned into a wolf and treated her like shit. He hurt Bella when he constantly pushed himself on her, making her feel guilty. He hurt Bella when he manipulated her into cheating on Edward, girl balled her eyes out after that. He hurt Bella when he bitched out and ran away after he found out Bella had picked Edward for good. He hurt Bella when he nearly ruined her wedding reception. Jacob caused Bella lots of tears through out the books, because of his selfishness.
-Boy can't take a hint. No means No! I don't think he ever would have bowed out gracefully if Nessie hadn't of come along. He would have still been trying to break Edward and Bella up... no matter how much pain it caused Bella.
Pretty much I only like Edward, lol. I think he is so misunderstood.
-If my significant other was a breakable soap bubble compared to me, I might be a little over protective and anal as well.
-If I was part 17 year old (hot-headed, moody, irrational, stubborn) and part 107 year old (selfless, experienced, rational, jaded)... I might be a little confused and make some mistakes too.
-If I had spent 100 years reading human minds, and experiencing first hand how fickle they were... I might doubt my 17 year old, mental mute, human significant other's love too.
-But most importantly, Edward was always selfless. He was always putting Bella first. The only time Edward was really selfish was when he wanted to kill the baby because he didn't want Bella to die. But I think you would be hard pressed to find a husband who wouldn't have those thoughts if they thought their baby was going to kill their wife. By leaving Bella in New Moon (even though it was stupid), being willing to die in Italy, being willing to peacefully walk away in Eclipse if she chose Jacob, and putting up with all of her other shit (listed above) lol... Edward more than proved that he would do anything for Bella, no matter how much pain it caused him, and his depth of love.
If you want to debate about any of those things, message me! I love talking about that kind of stuff in good fun ;)
