Most people are either Team Edward or Team Jacob. Then there are the others: Team Switz, Team Jasper, Team Emmett, etc. But why? Of course Edward and Jacob have their pros and cons. Some people remain the same team through the whole series, other change while reading. Then some change after they saw the movie. Is it really just their attractivenss that changes people opinions in the movies?
The first book/movie, Twilight, was all about a teenage girl, Bella Swan, moving to a small town in Washington to live with her father. She goes to a new school and meets a few new friends. She also sees a mysterious family, all with pale skin and "excrutiatingly beautiful". She realizes that the family is a coven of vampires. She shortly falls in love the handsome and mysterious, Edward Cullen.
The second book/movie, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, had the same characters plus another, Jacob Black, who was featured in Twilight very little. After Edward leaves Bella, she begins to spend most of her time Jacob, until he comes with an "illness". She figures out that he was not sick, but rather, he is a werewolf.
After both of these two movies/books, we already begin to see the love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob. By then, many people already know what team they are on. If people are like me, they are with Edward, and other are with Jacob.
When the movies were being produced and later in theaters, many people changed their opinions based only on their attractiveness. For instance, several people in my grade changed their team from Edward to Jacob only because they did not like Robert Pattinson as Edward and thought that Taylor Lautner was very "sexy" (which I am not denying that he isn't :)) Of course, others may disagree and change from Team Jacob to Edward because of Pattinson.
What are your thoughts? Were you loyal the whole way through to one or the other? Or did you change throughout the books? the movies?
