Sultry Bloody Sunday- Jace vs. Edward


So 75% of The League is enthralled by Jace Wayland. This guy's the complete package. I mean how can you NOT swoon over a guy has looks that kill (and can, in fact, actually kill you), a body that looks like it was carved from marble (but is not hard and cold), who exudes a confidence and swagger of someone who not only knows he is hot but knows how to carry it off with a level of arrogance that somehow manages to be endearing. And who cannot love a man who says only half jokingly "I am a man and real men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone woman, and bring me something brown." So we at The League present to you this challenge. Today's Sultry Sunday begs the question: Team Edward or Team Jace. Since Mortal Instruments has not been made into a movie yet the actor who is widely regarded to be THE ONE is portrayed in this video. Another Englishman by the name of Alex Pettyfer.








Oh Jace, yes! He is the perfect Jace. Normally I like a man with darker features, but this guy is definitely swoonworthy.









Ick, ewww, yuk. I'm going back to finish my web dream of my one and only. Ok, my two and only! Edward and Eric! E squared!







Team Jaceward!











Hmmm... can you guess which one of us hasn't read the series yet? (cough, Spider) I'm telling you, after I read the Mortal Instruments Trilogy, Jace knocked Edward out of my #2 slot. (Spike of course is first) Oh I'd much rather have a romance with a guy who's not constantly trying to spurn my advances. And let's not forget about all those sexy runes tattoos all over his body! I'd like to have him give me some tattoos with HIS stele, ifyouknowwhatimeanandithinkyoudo.

Team Jaceward enough said.....although you know I'm partial to a sandwich make mine Jace, Edward and me as the filling......yummmmmmmmmmmm

Chrissi said...

Hmm... I've only just started the Mortal Instruments books, but I have to say, I like Jace's attitude so far. As to Alex Pettyfer, I like him in everything I've seen him in so far. Plus he has just the right amount of attitude, so he's a hot contender.

Anyway League, don't make me chose... ;) *sigh*

RobsButtonsBabe said...

i have to say it...OUT LOUD! lol
based upon the video and only on looks...i vote for edward. only cuz he's more my type(looks wise). jace seems too much like a baby face. it makes me feel like all kinda of wrong, kinda dirty, and a bit like a craddle robber to even stare at jace. But i have not read those books w/ him in it. i was told by G to read them so i will...one day *giggles* anyway...til then im still on TEAM EDWARD =D

Gwen said...

May the powers that be make this the most trying decision of my day. In fact, every time I need to make a decision today I'm going to watch this vid again, just to remind myself what's really important.

That being said, the answer is glaringly obvious. BOTH.

And while we're at it, we need to get this Mortal Instruments ball rolling in Hollywood. A movie must be made.

Roni said...

Nope. Sorry. I don't see it. Team Edward!

Stacy said...

If the question is Edward vs. Jace, Jace gets my vote. (Sorry Edward) He's human (mostly), hunky, is covered with tats, knows he's gorgeous and doesn't have that tortured soul thing going.

However, if the question is Rob vs. Alex, I have to choose Rob. Though I agree that Alex is perfect for the part of Jace, he's maybe just a little too pretty for me. Not to say that Rob isn't pretty. Oh, no no no. I just can't see Alex carrying that scruffy, haven't gotten out of bed all weekend look that Rob does sooooo well. ;)

Spank Ransom said...

@Stacy - that's me too. Jace over Edward; Rob over Alex. Either over me is also acceptable. ;)

Jen said...

Um... tough choice. Still digging Eddie though... granted I haven't read that series yet but I think I just might.

I've been so busy that I've been missing out on blog reading lately but I just went back through an caught up and you ladies are still hysterical. I missed your blog tons!!

leslie said...

I knew this debate would come up sooner or later. I can certainly see why everyone is swooning over Jace. I love his attitude, but just like Rain, I like a man with darker features.

Although I love Jace, I'm still gonna go with Edward as my number one. Probably because I get my lines between Edward and Rob muddled. Hence, I refer to him as Robward.

Btw, what's up with us swooning over the younger, wounded-puppy types?

Ahh the age old question Edward or Jace?
Dammm....the League got philosophical today!

I´ve thought this long and hard (Yup! That´s what SHE SAID) and I have to go with Mr. "The meek may inherit the earth, but at the moment it belongs to the conceited. Like me.".

JACE is the whole package and he knows how to handle himself. You have to know he´ll become a fiiiine man (cause he will be a man and look like one ...yummm....unlike our beloved Edward)That´s what tipped my scales (ooo that sounds sexy) toward Jace.

That being said I wouldn´t mind a Shadowhunter / Vamp sandwich myself :)

allison said...

I love Jace and he was second to Edward for me until I read Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side- It's by far my favorite vampire book since Twilight and the main man, Lucius Vladescu is to die for! Who can resist someone who says, "Eat. Be happy to have curves. A presence." That's my kind of man!

Eyes of Amber said...

Ah, if you haven't read the books, you can't really make a true decision here. Jace has so many of Edward's good points, with the bonus of being warm and sculpted, not icy and marble. I'm not a tat girl, but the rune marks...wow. Not to mention his attitude. You want to hate him for his arrogance but you just can't because there's such a sweetie inside.
I'm with Ginger, I couldn't deal with someone who constantly rebuffed me and kept me at arm's length. When you're reading the books it seems so wonderfully romantic, but if you were to transfer that to real life, it would be incredibly frustrating and quite the blow to your self-esteem.
And...you could kiss Jace without worrying that he's going to become over-excited, bite you and end it all. With Jace, that could be just the beginning...LOL

Diane said...

I loved Mortal Instruments, but I didn't love it like I love Twilight. Jace was awesome, but I LOVE Edward. Team Edward! Brooding Vamps will always be my thing. =)

Diane said...

Ohhh...forgot. With what I said above, I think I'm more Team Simon for TMI series.

crazylife said...

As Gwen said. "Oh the powers that be let this be the toughest decision I have to make" I have to thank you ladies for introducing me to this guy. I did not know he was even on the radar. Hmmmm..... in light of recent events (Robsten) I may have to give this trilogy a read. Order one of those sandwiches for me!!!!

Desiree said...

No competition in my book, nothing can compare to the perfection of Edward. And although that guy is cute I kinda picture Jackson Rathbone as Jace. In my book, Jacksper is a sexy Jace. In conclusion, Jace is nowhere near Edward on my list of sexy fictional characters.

katarinas mama said...

I'm going to agree with Ms. Stephenie Meyer herself when she wrote: "Dear Edward and Jake, I love you both but I'm spending the weekend with Jace."

Now, let's all go there. A weekend with Jace??

Filled with picnics and apple flavored kisses. Hot moments at the Seelie Court. And Holy Everything...the outtake of the Mansion Collapse...for those who haven't perused it...here's the link - http://www.cassandraclare.com/cms/excerpt

I love Jace. He's perfect for the Team Switzerlands like myself. Don't choose- just ditch both for the HOTTER shadowhunter. Oops...maybe my twihardness is wearing off. must read books again. anyway.. this movie HAS to be made. and Alex(some stupid dog name) is fiiiiine enough to pull of jace. just a litttttle more attitude and i'll have to turn in my cullen crest

Jace over Edward, Alex over Robert. :)

JACE ALL THE WAY! HE CUD SOOOOOOOO KICK EDWARD'S ASS. heck he kills vampires for a living! and alex pettyfer is BLOND. and angel boy.
-warm, unbelievably sexy, tormented warrior?
-or cold, hard, still sexy vamp?
it's obviously the battle of the englishmen. and jace will win

team Jace!!!!! mayb if edward learned to smile...lol...anyway Alex is GORGEOUS!!!!
(her friend)-OMG,I HAD to show her this after she read City of bones. I don't care how great you think Edward might be, but Rob is UG-LY. Plus, who would want some stalker watching over you as you sleep?! Expecially if he wants to rape/eat you

oh god, i've been so waiting for this to finally come up!! yay! :D
sadly, i have to choose jace. Sorry edward. I mean i love the tortured soul thing. but i also love the confidence and swagger that jace has. when i first read about him, he seemed conceited. i find it sexy.
plus, i just get so tired of reading about edward being sooo scared for bella's life! i mean, the girl can take care of herself! jesus! give it a rest!
that's another reason y i like jace, he let's clary fight her own battles. he gives her one a sword to kill demons with in the third book for pete's sake!! how awesome is that?! but i like how jace seems to be broken even though he puts on a mask. so i guess i mainly like jace b/c he is a mixture of edward and himself. he can be totally bad-a one minute and the next be this sweetie pie, romantic, hurt/broken soul the next.
so i am TEAM JACE b/c edward is an overprotective cray baby and jacob is a pushy manipulative mutt.oh yeah!
