I'm tired of people trying to justify the 'Twilight is better than Harry Potter' thing.

"OMG EDWARD & BELLA 4EVER!" "I WISH MY BF WAS HOT LIKE EDWARD!!!!1!!11"

People, Twilight isn't a book, its firewood. The Harry Potter series out-awesomes it by A LOT.

~*~
Reasons

1. The Harry Potter Characters are believable. The Twilight ones make no sense.

Just a few examples,

Harry is hotheaded, skinny, small for his age, has bad vision, and has the occasional 'idiot moment'. He is willing to give up his girlfriend because he might die, not because he's "dangerous." He grows incredibly well as a character, starting out as an unsure little kid, and ending as a brave, skilled adult wizard who eventually saves the world from being taken over. Sure, he goes through an annoying-whiny stage, but he had a reason (the ministry lying about him and making him a total laughingstock) and when a certain doggie died *sob* he managed to calm down and go on with his life. *coughBellacough*

Edward is a totally hot "vampire" that has no personality, no feelings, and is a stalker that watches his girlfriend sleep at night. I mean, if some fat guy with a stained T-shirt and thick glasses acted like that the fans would toss the books out a window, but noooo! If the character is hot, creepy behavior is totally okay! He is the perfect guy, and his only flaw is not having any flaws. People, this kind of person does not exist! Edward is unrealistic and just plain creepy. But, hey, he sparkles! SPARKLES!!! He doesn't even have fangs.

Bella is a whiny #%$% who is a complete Mary Sue. If your guy left you, no sane person would curl up into a sad little emo ball and threaten to kill herself! Face it; he dumped you, GET OVER IT! Also, she is said to be 'shy'. What shy person would compare the people being nice to her on her first day to dogs? I would be grateful! I am shy, and I would never act that way to someone who was helping me in a new home. Also, clumsiness isn't endearing, people don't like it and make fun of you for it. Can you say 'Mary Sue'? Bella is such a damsel in distress; she can't get through anything without her knight in shining armor coming to her rescue. The poster child for anti-feminism.

Hermione is smart, funny, and pretty, but not without flaws. She's kind of nerdy, a bookworm (I'm seeing some similarities to me here) and does not fall in love with Ron immediately, like a certain Mary Sue I know. She does not make friends the second she walks into school, and only befriends Harry and Ron after they save her from a troll. Not so say she is completely helpless, because she can take care of herself. She has funny moments, and is a very well thought-out character.

Ron is funny, awkward, adorable, and someone you just want to hug. But he does have his flaws. Ahem, *glares at Edward*. He gets jealous of his friends and is a bit of a hopeless case when it comes to understanding feelings. (Which only makes me want to hug him to death more) He has so many random and/or idiot moments, he is one of the most believable characters to me.

Just a note --
Lupin/Jacob: I know the conventional idea of a werewolf is a creature transforming every full moon, but that was mostly generated by Hollywood. The traditional idea of a werewolf is of a human who, through magic or heredity, can transform into a large, demonic-type wolf when the need arises, or when they just want to. Sometimes the myths tell of one that transforms into a wolf against their will, but not every full moon, usually it is on Christmas Eve or for six days a week. I just wanted to clear that up for the people who yelled at me about my story that involves the olden myths. I do not like Jacob, or Twilight, or their idea of a werewolf, I follow the traditional definition. (Although I must admit, Lupin kicks Jacob's you-know-what.)

~*~

2. The plot

Harry Potter is about a boy who, when he was a baby, lost both of his parents to a twisted dark wizard named Voldemort. Voldemort was unable to kill him, but in the process, Harry was forever scarred and Voldemort seemingly destroyed himself. Ten years later, Harry discovers that he is a wizard and goes off to Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he makes two new friends and they go off on an adventure, where he discovers that Voldemort is still alive and, though not able to inhabit his own body, thirsting for revenge. Harry fights off Voldemort, who was unable to touch him because of the sacrifice of Harry's mother to save her babies life. Harry then goes on to learn how his parents were betrayed by their best friend, then learned that the person who took the blame was framed, and the real one is Ron's rat, Scabbers. Voldemort returns in the fourth book, killing the character who is played by the same guy as Edward (heh heh). Harry begins to get hot-headed and his temper flares easily in tOotP. He learns either himself or Voldemort are destined to kill the other. The wizarding world is thrown into turmoil. At last, Harry defeats Voldemort in a final battle. There is love, pain, death, fear, battles, drama, action, hate, and comedy.

Twilight is about a Mary Sue who falls in love with a Gary Lou and then the Gary Lou leaves her so Mary Sue becomes emo and then falls in love with a 'werewolf' and then gets her Gary Lou back and ignores the wolfboy and then has a demon child whilst breaking her spine and shattering her pelvis. And she names the kid 'Renesmee.' You've got the basic idea. (Renesmee? WTF... argh!)

~*~

3. Other random things

The writing itself in Twilight is atrocious. Meyer mentions how hot Edward is on every...freakin...page!! I get that he is a personification of pure perfection! Stop telling me!

Harry Potter has action that is not in random places. Twilight was so boring, it was like Meyer thought at the end of the first book, 'oh crap I need drama, let's slap three random bad vampires in quick!' The battles in Harry Potter make sense!

Voldemort has a backstory, a sad one. The bad guys in Twilight do not.

Twilight is loved by mostly prissy teenage girls and creeps. Harry Potter can please all ages, and pretty much every type of person, from people who think books are paperweights to bookworms, I've seen them all enjoy Harry Potter.

Harry Potter has a good message, Twilight does not. Harry Potter sends the message that love conquers all, but not the obsessive, demented love. It also tells that immortality is boring, painful, and does more harm than good. It states that if someone who is dear to you dies, you can mourn them but eventually you have to move on. Twilight states that women cannot live without their dream man, and that it's okay to love someone for their looks only. It says that if your dream guy leaves you, then go slit your wrists and jump off a cliff. It also says that immortality is a happy thing, and it solves all problems. Yeah, right.

~*~

4. The Myerpires themselves.

They sparkle. They don't have fangs. They are not vampires. Real vampires are undead corpses that crawl out of their tombs at night, feed on the blood of the living, and return to their graves before dawn in order to aviod the deadly touch of sunlight. Real vampires are weakened by garlic, can be killed by a non-pine wooden stake driven through the heart, and are also killed/pained by the cry of a rooster, for it signals the arrival of the sun. They are not sparkling, fangless totally hot teens that feed on animal blood in order to not kill people. Real vampires now have been pushed aside by the Meyerpires.

~*~

This is my opinon. If a Twilight fan has a smart, reasonable comment to make, go ahead. But flames will not be tolerated, and I will not respond to flamers.
Edited. XP

Book/Movie Rants: Part One

This is my opinion, and my own only. Feel free to disagree with me, as long as you follow the rule on the last paragraph of my rant.

I do not own Harry Potter or Twilight, the last one I would never want to own.

Have to agree, Harry Potter is far better than Twilight. You also forgot about female role models in Harry Potter. Hermione, Ginny and Luna are far better role models than Bella.

This is quite possibly the BEST ARRGUMENT I HAVE EVER SEEN FOR HARRY POTTER BEATING TWILIGHT! I do have one small thing that I would like to point out: I love Harry Potter, read the books, watched the films, listened to the audiobooks, I've visited Pottermore, seen the musicals, Potter Puppet Pals, visited the exhibition of Leaveson ... But you know what? Twilight gets teenaged girls to read. Yes, it is very, very badly written, and there are some truly squirmy moments in the books (um, hello, bestiality? Sort of, if you count Bella's wolfboy falling for her child), and the fact that Edward eats her placenta (complete gross out), not to mention some horrible suicidal tendencies going on, too, it gets teenaged girls to read. I cannot stress this enough. Seriously, some girls in my school had not even touched a fiction book before, and when Twilight came out, all I heard of was people talking about the BOOK, not the films. I actually despise Meyer's atrocious attempt at a love story, but it gets girls at least a head start in reading. That is the ONLY good thing that I have to say about that series. I love Harry Potter ever since I picked up the Philosopher's Stone. Yes, I've read Anne Rice, and Bram Stoker, too. And they are awesome.

Yes, the plot, Harry Potter teach us that real love is our powerful magic (also, the book is not talking only about the love between lovers, you can extend it). It teach us that death is inevitable, but we don't have to fear it. And it teach us about discrimination.
Toilet Twilight teach us that we have to give everything for love (and when I say everything I mean everything! Who cares about highschool and your family when you can live with your boyfriend?) and if it's doesnt work, and you boyfriend leaves you, you can always suicide yourself or began to flirt with your friend (even if you don't feel anything for him, it's ok, because you are pretty and everybody can forgive you mistakes). Also, it teach us that if you are rich, beatiful and inmortal you have a perfect life (I can't read more when Bella complain about that she don't have a perfect fit body...wow, you know, if you are fat you are destinied to be a sad person...only nice people can be happy).

OH MY GOSH. SOOOOOO TRUE!
I mean, REALLY. Twilight has pretty much no plot, It's basically a drama giving the message that you CAN NOT BE SAFE/LOVED/NORMAL/NOTICED/HAPPY WITHOUT A 'HOT' BOYFRIEND.
Yeah... NOY yhe best message to give to insecure, just-turned-teen girls.
BY FAR.
And I'm not even gonna list all the ABSOLUTELY AWESOME things about Harry Potter, because it would take up the rest of my life.
THERE.
Well freakin' said.

YES. So many Twihards are swarming around the place, I just want to hit them on the head with a good book of Harry Potter. Hard-cover.
J.K. Rowling has won numerous literature awards, set schools around the world a creative writing course, captured hearts young and old with the amazing journey of an orphaned wizard, and is the pure GODDESS of writing.
Stephenie Meyer slaughters the thesaraus, has adolescent inappropriate scenes, puts in sparkling vampires, adds in a perfect boyfriend with no flaws, and has the empress of Mary Sues who has to get into big situations every FLIPPING minute!

It's even proven in the first book of Harry Potter:
"It does not do good to dwell on dreams." ~Dumbledore, Chapter 12, The Mirror of Erised
"The idea of Twilight came to me in a dream." ~Stephenie Meyer
Jo Rowling has spoken. Harry Potter is better.

It's not fair to compare the two series. Harry Potter is better written and covers all ages, races, and genders. Twilight is for teen age girls and I liked it when I was younger, but that doesn't mean that is of the same caliber as Harry Potter. It was never meant to be.

I agree completely. Here's what I think when someones says "vampire": Alucard( Hellsing), Darren Shan, Johny Rayflo, Abel Nightroad. What do all these have in common besides being kick-ass vampires? They all have flaws. Johny hsa a sadistic demon who enjoys killing him over and over. Abel has a brother who wants him dead, plus his wife(?) was murdered by said brother. Darren never wanted to be a vampire, he did it to save his best friend.( Who wants him dead, and this other kid who he was really close to got killed more or less in front of him. Then his master/teacher/ comrade dies for nothing.) And Alucard.....well, Alucards just kinda crazy. ( like killing spree crazy, not creepy stalker crazy* shivers* ugh). So yeah, you make an excellent point. Now, when someone says Edward Cullen: creepy, stalker, obsessed, and fairy( I mean glittering mythical creature with wings). See the difference?

I only read the 1st 3 books of Harry Potter in 3rd grade(ish) and just read the others last year. i watched the movies and i could find hardly a flaw in the series. Honestly, Harry Potter is focused on putting aside insecurites and fighting for what is right. Twilight is about the importance about having a boyfriend....

Thanks for justifying Harry's means. I don't understand why everyone hates him so for his "whiny" period. I mean, teenage hormones idiots! I can't they don't see that. And same with Ron. He had a right to be jealous! I would if my best bud had all the attention, and I had none. Poor Hermione. Being compared to a bitch like Bella who can't save herself. Ginny is more bad ass than Rosalie and Alice combined. And Luna is more badass than all the Cullens combined. Neville can kick Jasper and Emmett's asses together. With a flick of their wands. These six can take out James/The Cullens/The Volturi/James/Victoria/All the Werewolves. Seriously, now which was better?

In the last chapter of the first book Dumbledore tells Harry that he destroyed the Philosopher's stone. Harry asks him if Nicolas Flamel and his wife will die. Dumbledore says 'Yes' and explains that for a person who lived so long, death is only the next adventure.
