Her vampires would try to talk their way out of it, like in Breaking Dawn. "Hey guys, I know we're fighting against the very core of your existence and that we're on the same side as the guy who's been stalling your return since age one...but I think we can find a diplomatic solution here."

"....AVADA KEDAVRA!"

And then Bellatrix to Bella; "How dare this filthy Muggle and sparkle vampire share my name? How dare she dirty the credibility of this title with her weak and tactless ways?"

I've read all 4 books; when I was really into them, I reread them. I know what happened. And basically, the Volturi or whatever couldn't use their main weapon, so they put their tails between their legs, listened to the Cullens talk, then ran off.

And I don't think so. They're powerful, but the wizards have magic on their side. Using one spell can kill them.

Don't know, maybe if would be a close call or the vamps can win, but it would be an interesting battle....

Oh, but the fact that the wolves are actually capable of bringing down a vampire when they gang up makes me certain that a gang of wizards can take down some vampires, if they're skilled enough in magic.

CherryBlossom CherryBlossom

In response to “But. They. Sparkle! And I don't think so...

The wolves are supernaturally fast too, but yes, I'd agree that wizards are also powerful. However, one wizard against one vampire seems to me like a victory for the vampire.

Why are you so hung up on the sparkling? The first vampires were disfigured by sunlight instead of killed, so the destruction thing is a new feature added by other authors, just like how in Harry Potter the magic is rotted solely in abstract rather than more physical elements. Different authors have different takes, this is hers.

Haha, I was just kidding about the sparkles. But with magic, I'm sure that you could possibly use a shielding spell or instant transportation spell, and then you can return at an unsuspecting time to get the vampire. Honestly, I don't even know who'd win, and I don't really care. (Well, if they were real, I'd probably care.)

Yeah. It really depends on the spells available. However, it's also possible to develop your own spells. Super speed is an advantage, but I don't know if that is necessarily the winning factor. It would also depend on the circumstances of the fight, too.

But yeah, I'm not a huge fan of Twilight but I'm not really a hater either. The power of the characters are really just based on whatever the author is willing to give, so it is subjective.

Anyway, I did read the books. I know Harry and Hermione are just friends. I do in fact know the dance had nothing to do with romance. But I've just always seen their relationship, friendship or otherwise, stronger than Ron and Hermione's, which is partially why I didn't quite understand why they got married. But let's not turn this into a shipping war, we're all entitled to our opinions.

HP IS A FANTASY/ADVENTURE book. and i know people have been saying "we're comparing characters, not genres" but depending on the genre the characters are gonna act differently to add to the genre. Soooo, that means that Twilight has to be more sorta like true love, nothing will separate us, meant to be etc. and HP focuses more on the story rather than the love. also (sorry i know you're probably going ARGH TL;DR) H + R were ELEVEN when they first met, so they couldnt really have a relationship. B + E were 17. And Edward went away because he was scared that he was gonna kill Bella accidentally. that seems a logical reason to me. OK i'm finally done :)

Thirdly, the genre doesn't matter at all. Love is still love. It's true, there will be more action-y love in fantasy/adventure books, but the premise remains the same. Meaning that watching someone sleep and suddenly loving them is NOT real love.

But it changes how it is portrayed and how much focus is on it. What I'm trying to say is, that Ron and Hermione may have actually been secretly super obsessed with each other, we just don't know because that is not the focus of the books. Where as in Twilight people like the books because of how much Edward cares about Bella, and deep down (further down in some girls) every girl wants to be as important to their loved one as Bella is to Edward. It's just that Twilight focuses much more on this aspect and that is why it appeals to so many girls. As you know by now, I am a Twilight fan, but I totally understand why people get pissed at the over-obsessed fangirls. I just don't agree with people being as over-obsessed at bringing them down.

We do know that, because if they were super obsessed with each other, we would have known. They wouldn't have been fighting over snargaluff pods, they would have been gazing stupidly into eachothers eyes and losing points for gryffindor.

And I stand by what I said: Though the focus is more on love in love stories, it still does not change the premise of love. Watching Bella sleep, taking out her car cables, and controlling where she goes is NOT caring, loving, or any of the things Meyer says it is.

As for your statement about every girl wanting to be like Bella....sorry, I don't want to be a boring, stale, static, depressed, dependent(the list goes on) girl who can't live without her boyfriend stalking her, or her wolf-boy protecting her. If you look at the comments above, if Meyer was a guy, she would be attacked for sexism.

OK, maybe I should have cleared this up at the beginning - Twilight 7/10, HP 3424513/10. I am NOT NOT NOT a superomgrpattzobsessed fan girl. And the thing about Ron and Hermione maybe being obsessed was an example. Also, I didn't go to the top of the page and search posts containing: Hermione, fetal position, true love, cliff. I saw this I thiiiink on one of the most commented, but not 100% sure.
Oh, another thing, I didn't say that every girl wants to BE Bella, I said that they want to be as important to someone as Bella is to Edward, and that is where the craziness over the books comes in. Also, the whole thing about taking out the car cables etc. is not the climax of the story, it is just him trying to stop her going to the wolves, where he thinks she could be killed. I know watching someone sleep is also creepy and I didn't like that bit, but it is showing how, I don't know, fascinated he is by her, and it is not a big part of the whole story.

What annoys me when people talk about Twilight is that they ignore how Meyer wrote the characters. If these were real people then yeah, Bella would be an idiot teen with a pedo boyfriend. But they're not. They're characters who are in fact soul mates. They are how they were written. Same with every other book in the world. When people say that Romeo and Juliet (no, I'm not actually comparing Shakespeare to Meyer) were just stupid teenagers, they ignore that they were fictional characters. They were soul mates.

Bella freaking out at the loss of Edward is supposed to show how much she loves and depends on him.
WHY, oh WHY, does the author think this is a good thing?
A couple of weeks of being upset, sure, but after that- NO.
Well, it makes sense. I mean after all, girls love guys so much and we can't function without them. It's a good thing Jacob showed up to pull her out of her misery, because without a big strogn man women turn into useless dummies who put themselves in danger because they can't think straight without men.

Bella in the books was the opposite of what you're supposed to teach young girls. Hermione, to some extent, is the right idea. To be smart, loyal to your friends, try to always do the right thing. Also, that guys can be jerks, so stick up for yourself and don't be desperate.

I'm not even sure where that statement came from, seeing as how I said nothing about the whole "HP vs. Twilight" epidemic. Even so, it's really just a thing on preference. If you like a story about vampires, "love," and a horribly put together relationship, then Twilight is for you. If you like a story about heroism, wizards, true love, sacrifice, etc., then Harry Potter is for you.
Besides, it just so happens that we're willing to defend our series with logic rather than adolescent emotion.

As you put in your biased review, Twilight is a story about "vampires, 'love,' and a horribly put together relationship" while Harry Potter is about "heroism, wizards, true love, sacrifice, etc". I suggest not writing reviews as a living, unless you can control YOUR emotions and write an unbiased summary.

Um, yeah, it is. Putting ALL other aspects of the relationships aside, it's ridiculous to defend a dangerous relationship between a human and vampire, but say a relationship between 2 wizards is unhealthy.

Now, with the differences, the relationships in Harry Potter develop normally, and when they don't(ex. Ron and Lavendar, if you've even read them), they don't work out. But even the bad ones aren't as bad as the ones in Twilight. Harry Potter has examples of true love, and portrays the negative parts of untrue love.

I wasn't being biased in any way. That's truly what the stories are about. Stephenie Meyer wrote that Edward and Bella were in love and that was that. The whole story was just about what happened to them throughout their "relationship." Harry Potter is about a whole lot more than relationships, but the ones that do happen to form have been developed carefully and have meaning. Rowling did a good job of that.

Agreed. Thats one reason I don't absolutaly love the Twilight serise (sp?). The whole story is built on minipulation, wich is to say that Bella and Edward's whole relationship is built on minipulation (since the story pretty much is thier relationship). Edward and Jake both minipulate Bella because she is such a weak character. By the second book I was tired of her whining and complaing. Heres the interesting part: there are Three things she complains about through out the books, Jake, Edward (him being gone, him not telling her stuff, etc.) and the weather. Yeah, Hermione at least does other stuff then swoon over Ron all the time. And both girls face near death and problems. Hermione is stronger because she has more than a one track mind.

I wasn't really defending them because they're fictional characters, but rather pointing out that they are how they were written.

You can say what you want about a real person, but you can't change a fictional character or really put them into real life. My draw to teen fiction is that it's not real and not always relatable.

If you can't escape reality when reading Harry Potter, there's an issue. That's often the main reason I read - it's a relief to submerse yourself into another world, whether it be similar or very different from your own. But no matter why you're reading, every book should have colorful, well-developed characters (and plots) - that's the foundation of a good piece of literature.

I think Twilight has well developed characters... I just enjoy the series for what it is. Not every piece of literature is going to be Shakespear or Conrad.

That said, I do believe that Harry Potter is written better but I'd rather not compare stories as to me they aren't really comparable.

Yeah, that's what I was saying. But it just give the Twitards more to complain about when you only give the reason that he's a dog.

The people above my previous comment had all given perfectly amazing reasons as to why Harry Potter is better than Twilight. I was merely adding to that list in a tone that I believe is the only way to speak to a Twitard. I believe that ^^^^^ quote quite efficiently summarizes the absolute idiocy of Bella. See, dogs will befriend anyone.

" Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength, and doing what is right in the face of adversity... Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend "

OK, I am a Harry Potter AND Twilight fan (it's possible to be both) and here is my opinion: Twilight is a good STORY, not a bible to live by. I don't think it's a bad storyline, I just don't think that you should take life advice from it. HP is far better, and definitely has better morals etc. BUT that doesn't automatically make it ok for HP fans to bring down Twilight fans. It's not like when you announce that you are a HP fan that you take some ancient oath that goes along the lines of "We shall destroy any story that does not contain at least 6 storylines in 1 book and does not have at least 3 examples of magic." And if you did, then you need to get out more. Hating on Twilight is not going to convert any Twilight fans to make them see the "error of their ways". In fact, the hateful comments actually make me like Twilight more than I already did because I get defensive. All I'm saying is that if you really hate Twilight, you'll leave it and its fans alone.

Agreed, but I dont' make fun of the fans. I make fun of the books. Usually I only mock them when I'm around other non-Twilight fans, or Twilight fans that actually DO think it has good morals and characters and use crappy arguments to back up their reasoning.

You're making fun of the book. Therefore, you're indirectly making fun of the fans of the book for liking that book.

I agree with this post, but the HP vs Twi feud annoys me for some reason.

I don't understand why Twilight and Harry Potter are being compared. They are from totally different genres meant for different audiences.

On an unrelated topic, I would like to politely point something out. The Amirite community has grown accustom to using the POTD as a starting ground for debates. These debates have varied from topics like political issues, homosexuality rights, religion, education and the liberties of women.

Tonight we are frantically trying to crushing each other's bones in a heated debate about Harry Potter and Twilight.

Don't get me wrong people, Harry Potter ftw, but I just thought I'd point this out. Good day.

Both of them are fiction. Why does it matter if one is "better?" It's only your opinion anyways.

I hate seeing people say "Twilight is a terrible and juvenile series" and then using Harry Potter as an example of great storytelling :/
It's like people telling you Iron Man is shit and then handing you Inception.

That's ironic considering that, just like the Twilight haters, you seem to derive so much enjoyment out of expressing dislike for things that you know are popular.

My english teacher has this theory that Bella started her period at age 17, and that's when Edward started to fall in love with her. He fell in love with her periods....
