Team Edward Post


Last Week Readers , I participated in a challenge called YA Love Triangle Week and I was Team Edward and I had to write why Team Edward against Ashley who was Team Jacob. As the Posts are over , I thought for those who didn't get a chance to read it , I would re-post My Team Edward Rant.

Edward – The Vamp from the Saga

Edward, Oh Edward. Where for thou Edward? The age ol’ debate of whether you are standing on the Team Jacob side or the Team Edward side is about to get heated as I stand forth to let you reader’s be well-aware of why you should choose Team Edward over Team Jacob.

Edward Cullen, supposedly born 20 June 1901 is what some call “The Cold Ones”, but we know him mostly as a Vampire. One that shines and sparkles in the sun rather than frizzles up and gets sunburnt like some of us mere mortals do after spending a long day in the sun without sunblock.

“As the Lion fell in love with the lamb” and “Your Blood is like Heroin” – two quotes that are used in Twilight to describe the way Edward reacts to Bella and then the way he describes himself as for a Vampire hunger for blood especially human blood is strong , it’s their survival mode . His experience with wanting Bella can be only described as romantic longings and though he really wants to be with her , he shows a side of himself that is not only chivalrous but also tries to warn her that he is not good for her , another quote is “what if I’m the bad guy? “. Edward displays characteristics of a true man as he does not pussyfoot around with her emotions and he tells her up straight that he being with her is liked feeding a drug addict, it is at this point – he has given her an opening to say Yes I’ll continue seeing you or the choice to say No.

Every girl dreams of having a romantic boyfriend, one that will recite her poetry, play her music, protect her from danger. Edward Cullen is that guy; he recites Romeo and Juliet off by heart in the first book Twilight , he writes her a song and plays it for her “Bella’s Lullaby” and he recites lovely quotes to her like in New Moon “Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars- points of light and reason... And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything”

If you were ever to bring a guy home that you’re father wouldn’t mind you dating , though of course you’d probably likely to leave out the Vampire bit as that wouldn’t go over too well with the parents. Edward would be it, after the centuries and years he has been alive he is well-mannered, has a good dress sense and is intelligent, creative and the fact that if they did find out he was a Vampire, he chooses to drink animal blood becoming what is called a Vegetarian Vampire rather than drinking human blood.

One of Bella’s favourite books as we discover in the story is Wuthering Heights and in Wuthering Heights, the main character Heathcliff (who is also one of my fictional crushes) is a guy so filled with love for Kate, that it is at the point of possessiveness in some places but the intensity of the romance – is a guy who would do anything for you, he would if you asked him to go to the end of the world and back for you. There is a quote in which Edward compares himself to Heathcliff ““Besides…the more time I spend with you, the more human emotions seem comprehensible to me. I’m discovering that I can sympathize with Heathcliff in ways I didn’t think possible before.” .To have a guy that is willing to die for you, is one of the most romantic fantasies that any girl could ask for, this also displays such a strength of loyalty, that Edward is like the White Knight in Shining Armor or as he is a Vampire “the Dark Knight in Shining Armor”. Edward is the example of everything a girl could ever ask for in a guy, he is like a dream come true.

Edward also has the gift of mind-reading, which though can be a bit annoying as he doesn’t have the ability to read the mind of the one he loves that can help, but he can sense what others are thinking and if danger attacks, he can nip it in the bud. He is also one of those gentleman-y guys who are quiet and keep to themselves which gives an aura of mysteriousness and peacefulness and also though Vampires are said not to have a soul , Edward has the most amazing eyes and if you are like me , then the first thing you notice on a guy besides his smile ( Edward has an awkward shy smile) is the color and intensity of the eyes and they do say the eyes of a person or in this case we will say a Vampire is the window to the soul .

In Conclusion this is just a few reasons why you should choose Team Edward and fall in love with “the cold ones” and become a Vampire fan rather than a Team Jacob’s Werewolf Chick


  1. Hi Paula, stopping by from over at the book blogger hop. It's nice to have met you, I've enjoyed my visit BUT (sorry) I'm afraid for me it has to be Jacob everytime.

  2. Over from the Hop. I'm totally Team Edward with you. Nothing like a handsome, kind, sorta dangerous but not really guy. Although I think I might be almost as much Team Jasper as Team Edward - the fun of someone a little more dangerous and interesting in different ways.

  3. @Alison - I think I sway a bit more to Jasper too lol.

  4. This was a great article! Thanks for participating!
