Does “Twilight” Have a “Team Bella”?

By Tracy Rosenfield June 27th, MSNBC published an article about the small “Team Bella” fan base, along with some rather unfavorable remarks about the Saga’s main character, Bella Swan. While the journalist noted a few Bella fans in the online space, she went on to provide several examples of why there isn’t a “Team Bella” like there is a “Team Edward” or “Team Jacob.”

What the author failed to notice is there IS a Team Bella and its presence is loud and proud. Nearly anyone who is a Kristen Stewart fan (and you can find droves of them on Facebook and Twitter) is also on Team Bella. It could be said that while most “Twilight” fans are on either Team Jacob or Team Edward, they are ultimately on Team Bella because they are looking out for her happiness when choosing either the vampire or the werewolf.

In December, Entertainment Weekly even published a cover story titled “Team Bella with a picture of Kristen Stewart (along with corresponding “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” covers). You can also find pins, posters and t-shirts with the Swan Team proudly displayed.

Though some may feel that Bella is too dependent on Edward or too whiny about her human existence, audiences will change their minds with the release of “Eclipse”, when Bella herself decides she’s on her own team, no matter who she chooses in the end.

    I’m both Team Bella and Team Edward.
    So we do exist. I need to show my Bella pride more often though.

    I think there’s no team bella because she is the only girl…. There’s no Team Alice or Team Victoria… so there can’t be a Team Bella… There’s only two teams: Edward and Jacob!
