@potter fans ... guys I dont know why ul even bother with twilight fans .. just so obviously not worth it ... there is no doubt of HP being better right? i dont know why we'd even sink it by comparing it to a book which has no ethics, no strong storyline and definitely no character definiton!!

@twi hards .... "twi-hard"??? seriously??? and u have the audacity to say it sounds cool?? just proves the level of ur judgement huh??
*no offense"

You're the person calling people "Twi-hards", are you not?
Why are you calling people uncool words?

I've got to compliment Cassie, you seem like a strong-minded person. Its good to stick up for your fandom, so I completely understand your defense. Personally I love Harry Potter, but I can understand why people like Twilight.

What number are we on? I wanted to be nice and add a reason, feel free to retort, I would appreciate hearing your opinion.
() Alice is kind and amiable, even though she is girly and loves shopping. Usual girls as such are labeled self-centered and mean, I'm glad she was included as a sisterly time as to help fade the stereotype held over rather feminine woman. There are no girls like this in Harry Potter, the only girls mentioned that fuss over their looks are Tonks and Pansy Parkinson (that I can think of right now) Tonks, she changes her appearence, but more for her own pleasure. Pansy is the stereotypical mean-girl, Rowling said so herself. Nearly every girl has at one point worried over their appearence, so I don't get why people make fun of those girls; even when the girls have a nice personality

This case is worthless lol Twilight will always be better then harry potter, period.

^ XD pretty funny.
I'm gonna switch the words around a bit 'This case is worthless lol Harry Potter will always be better then Twilight period'
Just as funny. Both statements are all opinion (I personally like my statement better) and both are laughable because both are untrue. HP has Twilight beat sometimes and I'll admit Twilight has HP beat sometimes.

Finally, an argument that is actually recent... I can actually hope for an answer here :) so... Let's face it, the plot in twilight is very weak. It is also overused and has been mauled. Also, in my opinion (look! Stamp on it because it's an opinion not a fact!!!) the aptly named thesaurus rape does not improve writing quality. Bella is a weak character who, despite the many flaws that we, as readers, see, is made out to be perfect. Too many people love her. And hogwarts is in Scotland, not London. Also, Jo never gives us a specific location and really we only think that it's in Scotland because of little tidbits, so it's technically not a place currently in existence (hehe, I wish), whereas we have a set town with no made-up area to it in twilight. Jacob black was a complete copy of Sirius black (and if I see one more person calling him 'serious', I will probably murder my computer or possibly torch my town) and if I'm honest, this whole spin on werewolf-lore is literally loads of dog animaguses on drugs. All the vampire superpowers are pretty much the spells (sparklepants and aro = legilimency, Jane = crucio and I would compare Alec to impedimenta or te stunning spell, while Heidi [only mentioned] is imperius - and these ate just a few examples) and there are a lot of characters any other author could have explored who are left flat and cardboard. I would say that Alice is a little sort of stereotypical, I see that design a lot, and honestly, Meyers can't even truly furnish a plot. That's why there's a new one for each 'book'. And I can say that I know for a fact that rob thinks Meyers is insane. Finally, someone with sense.
Oh, and if you want to know the reason my 'mood' is the crying emoticon, then it's because I'm crying over the warped minds of you people and the poor lonely characters that might have been some good in the hands of a skilled author. And this is a debate, please stop getting annoyed... Says the one ranting :) I love being like this, it's all a joke ;) I mean my whole hypocrisy and big-headed-ness:)

1- the writing is better
also filled with millions of grammatical and spelling errors. Endless paragraphs of explaining how hot Edward is. Slow pacing and boring.

2- the actors/actresses who film the movie are talented
TOO TRUE!! OMG!! Helena Bonham Carter, Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman, and Ralph Fiennes are NOTHING compared to the impressive blank stares of the great and all powerful Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner!! Helena, Gary, and Fiennes' Oscar nominations are mediocre compared to Rob, Taylor, and Kristen's Golden Raspberry worst actor nominees!!

4-it has a PLOT!!
4 books about a girls' choice between necrophilia and bestiality. A dash of incest and a sprinkle of pedophilia. Twilight teaches me to be male dependent and to jump off a cliff if my boyfriend leaves me. Harry Potter teaches me friendship, courage, love, and bravery. Yup, you're right Twilight's better!

5-the scenes in the movies are exciting
Compare: /watch?v=cBc3lEUspWE to /watch?v=tcUuph-j_oY&feature=relateed Twilight comes close but Potter always wins the snitch, sorry >_>

6- the effects are amazing
Harry Potter: /watch?v=OJH2VSfQvYM
Twilight: /watch?v=jzsF549WaQ8&feature=relateed
Potter got a nomination for best visual affects for the Oscars this year and previous years, too.

8- the actors and actresses are attached to their character and love them
"Bella Swan is one of the flattest characters I've ever played"
--Kristen Stewart
"The people who don't like it [Twilight] are generally people who haven't seen it and they're all judgmental and stuff and cynical people. And I think I am one of those judgmental and cynical people who would just mindlessly hate it"--Robert Pattinson
"I will be devastated when It's over. At the same time it's exciting to see it end" --Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)
"I feel like someone is dying. This kind of love and recognition is just incredible"--Emma Watson (Hermione Granger)

9-the characters are not all good or all evil
None of the characters really experience change in Twilight. In Harry Potter we spent 7 books thinking that Snape was a bad guy in reality, Snape was a good guy and one of the biggest heroes in the series.

10-the evil people are villians for a reason like the newborn army in eclipse who almost killed the whole city of seattle or the volturi (they are not evil evil they have some good in them)
I'll give you that one but they're really just angry. They hate muggles, muggle borns, and half bloods and think that they should all be destroyed...

11-the characters in twilight are nice and have a great personality and they are hot and cool too (they are lovable for that)
[AFTER BELLA DIES] "You deserve to live with this"--Jacob Black
"Don't make me choose because it will always be Edward"--Bella Swan
"It's those filthy bloodsuckers I hate"--Jacob Black
"I'll kill you"--Jacob Black
And if you call Bella's stupid depression 'loving' then you should seek help immediately. And beauty doesn't make a series good. Well developed plot and characters does.

12-the cover of the books are drawn beautifully
The covers of the books are drawn whereas the Potter ones ARE. I actually do like the Twilight covers better so I'll give you that one.

13-the posters of the movie looks verrrry cool
I like them better, too so I'll give you that one.

15- you can make your own stories out of the chapters of twilight
(you can make stories out of harry potter too but twilight turns out better than harry potter)
Personal opinion IDGAF

16- the phrase twi-hard is cool
You know it's an insult right?

17-the mashup name renesmee is so creative
Personal opinion IDGAF

18- Meyer made the werewolves and vampire unite even though they are enemies to each other
Rowling made a bunch of kids under 17 gather together to rebel against a society filled with adults to fight for what was right.

19-the book is an international bestseller and an award winning book too (chosen by book critiques)
Harry Potter: over 450 million copies sold. Best selling book series in history.
Twilight: 116 million books sold.
"Harry Potter is 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." - Stephen King (greatest author of our age)

20-there are lessons you can learn from twilight (the thing u can learn from harry potter is how to do a spell on your friend so he can help u)
Twilight taught me to be dependent on men at all times and attend to their wishes no matter what. Twilight taught me that it's okay to hook up with my ex-crushes' 2 second old daughter. It taught me to not voice my opinion and let all the men do all the talking. Us women should lie down and scream like a dying goat while men do the work
Harry Potter taught me to stay strong and keep fighting for what is right. Never back down even if society is telling you no. Young adults can prevail if we put our minds to it and work as hard as we can. It taught me friendship, love, trust, courage, bravery, and strength...

21-the emotions are deep in twilight and is a wide imaginative world (unlike wand boy)
Bella: Wah-wah my boyfriend left me and I'm sad :(
Harry: ORLY? Although I can't remember it, I witnessed my parents dying, I lived under a staircase for 11 years while being abused by my aunt and uncle. I experienced more death before my balls dropped before you did in your entire life. I watched my friends, god father, and father figures die before my eyes. All before I lost my virginity. You're just on your period...

22- she replaces small simple words to long big words for people to be more educated not use simple words everyone can understand
Big words doesn't make you a good writer. The way you write does.

23-twilight has a theme of a mystical and imaginative world
That doesn't make any sense. Your argument is invalid.

24- twilight is read by a massive audience
Potter's audience is WAAAAY bigger. The least financially successful Potter movie made 9 million (I think) more dollars that the MOST financially successful Twilight film.

25-the fight scenes are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo amazing and you feel the fight by someway
I'll actually give you that one. What makes Potter fight scenes good are the special affects but that's all wants. I like the hand on hand fighting in Twilight.

26-the twilight quotes are really nice written and you feel the creativity in them
Personal opinion IDGAF

27-Meyer left clues for you to know the identity of each and every character
That doesn't make any sense. Your argument is invalid....

This post makes me feel almost ashamed to be a Twilight fan .__.

I love how twi-hards contradict each other; Its a book for mature readers/It has simple words so we dont have to use a dictionary. lololol and If I was named Renesmee, I would commit sucide. And hey! If twilight supports it, its ok! (sarcasm)

First of all: "103 : the twifans are peaceful unlike the potterfans"
Really? Because I don't recall Potter fans committing suicide, threatening to kill others for not liking the books, assaulting actors, shooting people, slitting their throats, and beating others with a baseball bat. Hm. Must have slipped my mind. Strange.
Second: "Plenty of straight guys read twilight"
Mhmkay, suuuuuure they do. My past 3 ex boyfriends loved Harry Potter and hated Twilight, 8 of my best (straight) guy friends have attempted to read Twilight and hated it, and I honestly do not know of ANY guy, gay or straight, who likes Twilight.
Third: "fans !! Twilight will stay forever"
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHFFUW­ERF­TIW­HIF­YUE­HBI­FHB­WEI­GFT­WE!
Please excuse that. That was me falling onto my keyboard from laughing so hard. I know PLENTY of people who used to like Twilight, but now hate it. Even the actors don't like it. Once a Potterhead, always a Potterhead!
And about Twilight's "quotes being deeper and more symbolic" and blah blah blah, take the quote "I guess my brain will never work right. At least I'm pretty" Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, page 406. It means that it doesn't matter how smart or dumb you are, as long as you're pretty, that's all that matters. That is EXACTLY what she is saying there. Now one from HP. "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" Whatever your passion is in life, no matter what it be, your heart is in it. "You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself plainly when you have need of him." We are always with the ones we love. They will always help you when you need it most, and will guide you through the darkness to the light. I'm pretty sure THAT has a better and deeper meaning than "As long as I'm pretty I can be stupid."

"The truth. It's a beautiful and terrible thing."

The lists supporting Twilight are very opinionated.
7. Also, this is FANTASY! It doesn't have to be "well, the characters are more real." Fantasy books aren't Meant to be real! Books w/ aleins are fantasy. Aleins (probably) aren't real!
The person who said this went on later to say that the villains in Twilight are more realistic. *facepalm*
And am I the only one to point out that the fight scenes in Harry Potter were epic reading and not just watching? That there is comic relief, and Harry Potter makes you laugh, and cry, and feel the emotions of the characters even though they haven't been written in first person?
How hard is it for a woman to write about the feelings of a teenage girl? Not harder than for a woman to write about the story of an eleven year old boy who grows through the books right?
"The writing's better". "There is a plot"
Sheesh. If you're arguing for twilight, why are you giving reasons in support of Harry Potter?

Vampires don't sparkle. Vampires are actually resurrected Lycanthropes ("werewolves" for all you tweens that don't know anything) and the bodies of suspected Lycans were cremated in medieval Europe to prevent them from resurrecting. The winner; any movie depicting true to lore lycans and vampires.

Fun fact, not all lycans are wolves, lycanthropy is a disease/curse/birthright whereas the being can transforming into an animal, not specifically a wolf.

1- the writing is better

Actually, the writing is simplistic. That's fine, of course. Except, Meyer misuses many words.
My old High School English teacher used to love attacking Twilight with her red pen.

2- the actors/actresses who film the movie are talented

You so crazy. Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman and the first Dumbledore? I adored that bloke, very sage like indeed.

3- bella is a role model (she teaches people to hold on to their friendships and stuff and keep their secrets)

Bella is a role model all right. An example of how girls should never behave. Spoiled little brat.

4-it has a PLOT!!

Where?! I have yet to find one. It's a shame, Twilight had a lot of potential, but Meyer rushed things.

5-the scenes in the movies are exciting

Really? I kind of found them boring and slow.

6- the effects are amazing

What effects? In HP they had an entire castle and world to build!

7-a story about a vampire,werewolf, and mortal beats a swinging wand boy and his enemy the beast

Vampire? You mean pixie. The utter lack of respect shown to a famous much loved mythology, is one of the reasons Meyer is so hated. Even Meyer admitted Jake isn't a werewolf, just a shape shifter. Whereas Lupin? Now that's a werewolf!

8- the actors and actresses are attached to their character and love them

Irrelevant, however, Robert thinks Meyer is "creepy." You know it's bad, when your leading man calls the character he's playing a "wet dream."

9-the characters are not all good or all evil

Well, of course! That makes it boring. It's much more interesting if there's a blurriness to good and evil. Also, real life has many grey areas.
Or are you speaking of Twilight? In which case, most of the cast are sociopaths! That's not something someone should be.

10-the evil people are villians for a reason like the newborn army in eclipse who almost killed the whole city of seattle or the volturi (they are not evil evil they have some good in them)

The volturi are a bunch of wimps.
Also, when I read about Snape's love for Lilly, I went, well that explains alot. He crossed over to the dark side, then redeemed himself for his Lily, even though she chose James. Even Dumbledore flirted with the "dark side" but was promptly snapped out of it when his sister was killed. He also carries emotional scars from the experience.
Hows that for "all good and all evil"?

11-the characters in twilight are nice and have a great personality and they are hot and cool too (they are lovable for that)

They're sociopaths. And Bells whines about people treating her nicely. What the actual F?
She uses and abuses Jacob. Jacob attempts to force himself on Bella. Then he "imprints" on Bella's baby. That might not be considered pedophilia in the Twilight universe, but it's still majorly creepy.

12-the cover of the books are drawn beautifully

Opinion. That just means they had a good artist. The artists don't write the story, so it's irrelevant.

13-the posters of the movie looks verrrry cool

Opinion. Plus, this is the job of marketing people. They also do not write the story.

14- creative and great ideas of the vampire form

Creative? Hardly. Great ideas? Hell no. I don't mind authors playing with the mythology of Vampires. But to make them sparkle? That just looses your own credibility. If you're not going to take it seriously, then make it a parody!

15- you can make your own stories out of the chapters of twilight
(you can make stories out of harry potter too but twilight turns out better than harry potter)

Wow. So the readers can writer better than Smeyer? Ouch! She's supposed to be a professional! I guess not.
Plus, Meyer doesn't bother with her rules for her universe. Whereas HP, JK put in effort. So of course you can write better stories from Twilight. You have more lenience.

16- the phrase twi-hard is cool

Aww. Sorry, but it's actually an insult. Used to mock and poke fun at people.

17-the mashup name renesmee is so creative

No it's not. It's stupid. Talk about future bullying. Way to go parentals!

18- Meyer made the werewolves and vampire unite even though they are enemies to each other

Exactly like Harry Potter! Everyone unites!

19-the book is an international bestseller and an award winning book too (chosen by book critiques)

The Bible is a best seller. Yet, I dare you to ask what an atheist thinks of it. (Note, I do not wish to question the Bible or any other Holy Texts.)

20-there are lessons you can learn from twilight (the thing u can learn from harry potter is how to do a spell on your friend so he can help u)

What lessons? Where? All I got from it was, having a boyfriend is a top priority. Whereas Harry Potter I learnt, love is a powerful thing, friendship is something to be cherished, judging someone is not okay, ect.

21-the emotions are deep in twilight and is a wide imaginative world (unlike wand boy)

Twilight emotions are as deep as a child's paddling pool.

22- she replaces small simple words to long big words for people to be more educated not use simple words everyone can understand

To paraphrase Hemingway, "Do you really believe bigger words mean bigger emotions?"
Also, she misuses her words. An author has to carefully select their words. The fact that Meyer fails to do so, means she's an embarrassment to the profession. As a matter of fact, many English students are taught the rule of K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Stupid!

23-twilight has a theme of a mystical and imaginative world

Harry Potter is set in the world of magic and wizards! With many many many magical creatures.

24- twilight is read by a massive audience

So are many crappy books. Or just books in general.

25-the fight scenes are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo amazing and you feel the fight by someway

What fight scenes? Also, Harry battled a basilisk, Voldemort, Death Eaters, Bellatrix ect.

26-the twilight quotes are really nice written and you feel the creativity in them

Actually, they're cheesy. Not in slightest bit creative. Though, I will give Meyer points for duping the masses. Well done.

27-Meyer left clues for you to know the identity of each and every character

No, she thought her audience were too stupid to think for themselves. She whacks you over the head with the identities of the characters.

You gave a whole lot of opinions, there.

Honestly people... If you're going to say "That doesn't count because it's an opinions", don't go saying everything else is wrong, and give your own personal opinion as a counter argument. It doesn't make sense.

1. Yeah right! Twilight is criticized for its horrible writing.
2. No way. So you are saying that a cast of oscar winning actors is somehow worse than a bunch of hard-wood faces??
3. Great rolemodel, Bella is!! Go and jump down a cliff when ur bf leaves you. Make the most powerful person in the family stick with you and leave the family during a fight. YAY!
4. It has a plot. Barely.
5.The movies are sooo exciting, most people sleep there way through it?
6. The special effects?? Nothing compared to HP. Eragon had better CGI.http://images.fanpop.com/images/emoticoons­/co­ol.­jpg
7. http://images.fanpop.com/images/emoticoons­/pl­ain­.jp­g Wow. U r so thick!!
8. eh, no. Rob hates Edward.
9. Check out HP, and u know what u are talking about.
10. OOh, really!! So Voldemort was born evil??

I swear every single one of te crappy reasons why twilight is better than Harry Potter made me puke. Twilight is a freaking insult!!! To women, to werewolves, to vampires, to fairies, to imagination, to Forks and about a million other things!!! They say Bella is a role model? She bacame a zombie when Edward left! She jumped off a cliff! Literally! Role model! I prefer Hermione, she's smart, sweet, funny and does not depend on a man! Or Katniss (the protagonist in the Hunger Games) she risked her own life to save her sister's! She started a revolution to stop children from dying! And all the while protecting the people she loved, and even though she was torn between 2 guys she never stopped fighting till' they won and the world became peaceful! So please, get a common sense people!
