Being Jacob Black: Anyone that likes Jacob needs to read this.
Hi...uh...stuff about me? Well I'm a huge gamer. I especially love Nintendo, but I'm no fanboy (PS3 and 360 are cool too). I also like anime and manga a lot. Also (unlike most Twilight fans) I'm a guy.
I guess I'm TEAM JACOB. I'm still not 100% sure what being on a team means but, Jacob's my favorite character so why not?
Me and Twilight Saga:Well...when I first heard about it, I heard it was really popular with mainstream people. But at the same time, people on the internet thought otherwise. They said it was terrible. Since I hang out on the internet a lot, I thought nothing of it. Then New Moon came out, and everyone at my school was obsessing over this Taylor Lautner guy and how hot he was. It became really annoying so I ended up turning my head from Twilight even more. But just recently, Twilight started playing on Showtime. When it came on I thought "Oh god, it's that Twilight thing." But I'm a very curious person, so I left it on while I surfed the web. I wasn't paying full attention to the movie, but I caught bits and pieces of it enough to get the gist of what's going on. I thought to myself "Oh my god, I'm watching Twilight. Someone help me!!" But to be honest, it didn't seem all that bad. Later, I watched it again, paying closer attention. It perked my interest enough to wanna watch New Moon. I watched New Moon, but didn't enjoy it as much as Twilight. In fact, New Moon kind of sucked. Twilight had a decent plot, but lacked an awesome character. New Moon had an awesome character, but lacked a decent plot. And plots are more important. The next day, Twilight came on again and I found myself watching it...again. Then I remembered this one scene in New Moon and started watching that again. At that point I had to tell myself: "Whoa whoa whoa, STOP!! What are you doing? Don't watch this again. Be done with it, move on to something that you actually like." But then I remembered that the third installment was coming out in theaters soon. Should I go see it? Deep down I wanted to, but the part of me with some dignity told me "no". In the end, I decided to go ahead and embarrass myself by going to see Eclipse (along with The Last Airbender). I went into the theater telling myself: "I'm just curious, that's all. It's not like I actually LIKE this or anything. I'm here to see The Last Airbender and Eclipse is just...extra, yeah." I saw TLA first and it was terrible, TERRIBLE (but that's a story for another time). Then I saw Eclipse and, I hate to admit it, but I liked it a lot. Eclipse had an awesome plot AND awesome characters. Not to mention it had violence, sweet sweet violence. :) Maybe I liked it so much because it was good in comparison to TLA. *shrug* And that's when it happened, seeing Eclipse sparked my interest for the series something fierce. I was so "curious", that I actually wanted to read the books, and see the differences between them. I've read all four and I do believe that they're better than the movies. I said I didn't like the New Moon film, but the book is great. Then it occured to me, I must REALLY like Twilight if I'm more than willing to read the books (because I never read). And it's embarrassing because I'm a guy, guys don't typically like Twilight, especially guys like me (gamers). I haven't even told my friends that I like Twilight yet, they'd probably think I'm gay. I didn't want to get into Twilight, I really didn't. I remember telling myself that I'd watch the first movie, maybe the second, and be done with it. I also promised myself that I sure as hell would never read the books. Now look at me, I read all four books, saw the movies multiple times, I'm going on Twilight fansites, and claiming that I'm Team Jacob. Even after experiencing the series enough to notice all of it's major flaws (flaws that make most people hate the series in the first place), I still find myself doing Twilight related things almost everyday. So yeah, I'm officially an ashamed Twilight fan...
I hope MOTHER/Earthbound isn't jealous (of course it is). :(

"That's right, honey, go to sleep." - Jacob Black
"But I'll never see anyone else, Bella. I only see you. Even when I close my eyes and try to see something else. Ask Quil or Embry. It drives them all crazy." - Jacob Black
"It didn't matter so much that Bella'd chosen someone else over me. That agony was nothing at all. That agony I could live with for the rest of my stupid, too long, stretched-out life. But it did matter that she was giving up everything - that she was letting her heart stop and her skin ice over and her mind twist into some crystallized predator's head. A monster. A stranger. I would have thought there was nothing worse than that, nothing more painful in the whole world. But, if he killed her..." - Jacob Black
Things I like about Twilight Saga
Werewolves (Shape-shifters)I've always liked the wolf pack better than the vampires. If I had to choose between living with the Cullens or living with Sam/Jacob's Pack, I'd choose the pack. I always just found them far more interesting than the vampires. The Cullens are very dull and boring (I swear, if they didn't have Emmett...), while the wolf pack seems fun to hang around. Not to mention that they won't thirst for my blood. It also pisses me off how everyone underestimates them, especially Bella. "Jacob, you don't know what you're getting yourself into." Shut up Bella! Werewolves are strong, dammit! I also like how the wolf pack are thought of as "protectors". A group of people who share an extremely close bond like a family, maybe even closer, who have fun and live their lives, but still work hard to protect their land. That's awesome. Better than a family of vampires who are trying to fit in. If the series was all about sparkling vampires and nothing else, I would not like it.
The Eclipse movie is what really got me into the series. It's what made me want to read the books, and by reading the books, I found where the best experience is. Eclipse had the best story, the best mix of characters, the best romance, and the best action. What I really like about Eclipse is that Edward and Jacob finally fight for Bella's love. It's that rivalry that really makes Eclipse awesome, as well as the violence. The book is way better than the movie, but it is nice to actually see the action instead of read about it. Best in the series.
Things I hate about Twilight Saga
1. "You're like my own personal brand of heroin."
2. "I like watching you sleep. It sorta fascinates me."
3. "You better hold on tight, spider monkey."
Lame, creepy, creepy, and lame. That's what Edward is. And also, like Bella, he has no personality. It also makes me sick how Bella describes him, so perfect, soooooo perfect. Blech! There are a lot of boring characters in Twilight, but Edward is one of the most boring. Lame, creepy, and boring, that's what Edward is. But, as I read the books and realized how much I hate Bella, I also realized that I don't hate Edward as much as I thought. See, unlike Bella, Edward is actually SMART. He knew the consequences of the choices she was making and tried to keep away from her. Not very successfully though. And even when he couldn't keep away, he at least tried to convince her NOT to make her stupid decisions. But unfortunately, Edward's too much of a wimp. He can't bare saying "no" to Bella and hurting her. I guess Edward doesn't believe in tough love. For those reasons, I don't like Edward, but I don't completely hate him either. In the words of Rosalie, "I don't hate you, I don't particularly like you....or your fangirls." - Rosalie Hale ;)
Update: After reading Midnight Sun, I think I like Edward just a little bit more. Of course, not enough to make it on my Favorite Characters list, but he's not boringly perfect like I thought. He's okay.
The rant is too long for this page. In a nutshell, I don't like Breaking Dawn and I think it's the worst entry in the series. K thnx bye

Twilight Saga Short Review (Best to Worst)
#1 EclipseDefinitely the best one in the series. This one is where all the action, romance, and suspence reaches it's peak. No other Twilight book can top it. It's got a solid story, a great mix of characters, it doesn't just focus on one thing (Edward and Bella or Jacob and Bella), and it's got the most action. What I love most about it, is that Edward and Jacob finally fight for Bella's love. Two rivals competing against each other is always awesome. Too bad they never actually FIGHT each other, but it's the rivalry, the two relationships clashing, that really makes Eclipse stand out. I could be harsh and say that all the other Twilight books sucked, sucked royally, and Eclipse was the only good one. But I'm more forgiving than that. In all honesty, I seriously can't see how any Twilight fan could NOT like Eclipse. LOVE it.
#2 New MoonThis one was a little tricky. I remember watching the movie and thinking that it was boring. But then I read the book, and found that it was really enjoyable. I mean, it doesn't have much of a plot and the story doesn't move all that much forward. Edward leaves, we learn about Jacob and the pack, Edward comes back. Nothing really moved forward. But I think the biggest reason why I liked New Moon is because of my own personal preferences. Jacob's my favorite character, and I like the wolf pack a hell of a lot better than the Cullens. So that might be why I like it, I just find Jacob and the pack more interesting.
#3 TwilightThis one is tricky too, like New Moon. This time the situation is opposite. I read the book and really get annoyed that it's all about Edward and Bella. It's just about them. Jacob isn't even an important character yet, so no wolf pack, and I of course prefer the wolves over the vampires. So reading about how perfect Edward is for 400 pages gets really boring and really UGHing. I actually barely made it through Twilight because it was so boring. The thing that kept me going is that I'd already seen the movie, so I already knew that it would get interesting eventually. Dull, but at least it has a decently solid story.
