Lately I have come across many, many, many blogs talking about how twilight is better than Harry Potter. Now I'm going to tell you the reasons why that is so completely wrong!
1. Harry Potter has structured plot. If you think about it, Twilight is just about a girl with no emotion who gets stalked by a sparkling pixie. Harry Potter is about a boy who has to endure many difficult challenges growing up in life, like having to face the fact his parents were killed by Lord Voldemort, and eventually overcoming all of this and defeating the darkest wizard of the age. Plus there are things like ACTUAL love in this. Not paedophilia love.
2. There is plenty of character development. In Harry Potter Hermione starts off as an insufferable know it all with no friends and then turns into the brightest witch of her age along with helping the most famous boy in the world defeat the darkest wizard of their time. Neville starts off as a nerdy, shy boy and turns into a BAMF. Bella in Twilight starts off as a girl with no emotion and turns into a girl with no emotion and an enormous sex drive. Edward starts off as a 108 year old virgin who hates himself and turns into a 108 year old...

Top ten favourite twists in the Harry Potter franchise
Harry Potter franchise is full of surprising and shocking twists. Here are few of my favourite twist, In descending order. By the way if you haven’t seen the entire franchise doesn’t read the article.....

10. Philosopher’s stone in Harry’s pocket.
Harry finding the philosopher’s tone in his pocket was a cool twist along with the revealing of Voldemort himself


9. The Deathly Hallows
When we elaborate what the deathly hallows were in Harry’s world definitely they can make into the top best turns. Invisibility cloak was the one Harry got from his dad via an anonymous source. Resurrection stone was there in the first snitch he ever caught in his quidditch match and the elder wand was the wand Dumbledore used the whole time. It made him one of the most powerful wizards ever.


8. The triwizard cup was a portkey.
In goblet who expected the triwizard cup to be a portkey. Also Harry was meant to win the tournament so that at the end, as he win he could walk into Lord Voldemort’s arms and die. Unfortunaly out of excitement Harry made Cedric also to...

This is solely based on opinion.
They are my least favorite characters, especially from when i was reading the books.


1. Dolores Umbridge


If I am writing any articles on least favorite characters then definitely she will make number one. Because I there were times when i felt that she worse than Voldemort himself. She has an annoying crooked smile all the time, even she makes someone cry or suffer. She is like a cyborg with no feelings at all. She makes up all sort of false conclusions like Voldemort never returned and gave Harry a detention full of torture. And she doesn’t give a damn about other's feelings. She teaches the Defence against the arts lessons to students as if it is nothing in near future, And definitely there absolutely nothing attractive about this lady.

2. Bellatrix Lestrange.


If there are any twilight haters out there I know that you see her a lot better than the Bella Swan in the saga. In a way she is because it is quiet visible that this lady is evil. Other Bella on the other hand, she is evil, manipulative and male dependant. Bellatrix is...

I've seen the HP films more times than I can count but there are still some things that are hard to notice until you're like, "bajillianth" time watching the movies. I had an HP movie marathon recently, and I was so surprised by all the things I'd missed. Here are some that I noticed. (By the way, I didn't notice all of these--I don't think anyone could notice all this just by themselves--I only noticed some of them, and afterwards my friends told me some things they noticed, to help with this article)

Philospher's/Sorcerer's Stone:
1) Harry is wearing the sweater Mrs. Weasley made for him in the scene after the Mirror of Erised, where he is sitting in the Great Hall.
2) Filch was cheering for Slytherin during the Quidditch match. I don't know why I found that interesting, I just did.
3)Country music star Julianne Hough has a cameo in SS/PS!!
She is the blonde in the front row here...

Albus Potter:Releasing Vuldemort 
Ch.1 
 Albus Potter was my name. Being the son of Harry Potter and Jenny Weasley made me more proud than I already was. I just turned 11. Which meant I had to attend HogWarts,the school of magic and wizardry. My older brother,James,already went there for a year and said it was magnificent. My first year,I was terrified,but managed to keep it secret. Once I stepped onto the train,I got a greeting of very loud kids. My cousin,Rose Weasley,followed after me towards a car where we could be alone from those ignorant children. When we finally found one,we started to look through our stuff. My wand was a black one... I tried a spell,but a girl with blonde hair walked in. 
 "Excuse me,but may I sit here?",she asked kindly. 
I nodded and scooted over for her. After she sat down she noticed I had out my wand. 
"Amazing wand! Do you know any spells?" 
"Not exactly... Do you?",I answered,fiddling with it. She smiled slightly and brought out her wand.

Most people think that Harry Potter is stupid. They're wrong......... They just don't beleive!!! They think Harry Potter is just another Good versus Evil Movie/Book. Well, we think differently....... We say that Harry Potter is inspiring. Having so much pain in his childhood but then finally having the life he wanted. He IS a wizard. He IS a hero. And we are his fans. We are the ones that beleive that the book is not only like our Holoy Bible. But it is how we relieze that there is bad in the world and there is a dark side. We are the ones who believe!!!!!

OK, so I saw that recently, a lot of people have been posting these "You know you're a potterhead when..." stuff. So I thought I'd put together some of the ones I'd seen people say or post. I believe I have 50 or so. Here they are:

You Know You're A Potterhead When...

...you get married and you want to say "Always" instead of "I do"
...you wish you could get married to another Harry Potter fan so that you could beak Unbreakable Vows instead of regular wedding vows.
...you cry because you don't get your Hogwarts acceptance letter
...you can't say "Honestly, don't you read?" without sounding exactly like Hermione
...you can't say "You're just as sane as I am" without soundind exactly like Luna.
...you try calling 62442 to see what happens
...you finished reading DH, and you thought, "This is where I belong."
...you ask your parents for an owl for your birthday
...you actually ask for a broom for Christmas

Philosopher's Stone
“Oh, are you a prefect Percy? You should have said something, we had no idea.”
“Hang on I think I remember him saying something about it once…”
“Or twice-''
“A minute-''
“All summer-''
------------------------------------------------------------------
“So light a fire!” Harry choked.
“Yes… of course… but there’s no wood!” Hermione cried, wringing her hands.
“HAVE YOU GONE MAD!” Ron bellowed. “ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT!”
----------------------------------------
“Everybody finished the song at different times. At last, only the Weasley twins were left singing along to a very slow funeral march.
----------------------------------------
Lee Jordan was finding it difficult not to take sides.
“So-after that obvious and disgusting bit of cheating-“
“Jordan!” growled Professor McGonagall.
“I mean, after that open and revolting foul-“
“Jordan, I’m warning you-“
“All right, all right. Flint nearly kills the Gryffindor Seeker, which could happen to anyone I’m sure…”

i finished harry potter and the deathly hallows last night an the ending was truly amazing . it was much better than the movies ending, don't get me wrong i loved the movie but the way voldermort died was much different . he died out on the landing just near the entrance but in the book he died in the Great Hall. some things are the same but there was some things that were brillant and people will never know about it because people will never read the books. also the books explain things much better and it all fits together in the end. it was amazing!!!! i can't wait to start reading the whole series again!!!!

Plots
HP: Harry discovers he has a special gift which he uses to protect himself, friends and Hogwarts
BT: Zach discovers he has a special gift which he will use to protect his world

Main Characters
HP: Harry, Hermione and Ron – All from England
BT: Zach, Bala and Wen – From England, America and China

Set
HP: Set in England but they go to special places that you can only travel to using magic
BT: Set in England but they go to special worlds (world of love, equality, without money)

Evil
HP: Harry has a history with Voldemort and holds the key to his defeat
BT: Zach has the gift that Dhoranka once possessed and is link to Dhorankas evil past

Conclusion:
Common features between books often help you choose your next book, which is a good thing. So is Birthright different enough to be considered a similar to Harry Potter or is it just Harry Potter in a different cover?

*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the links which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any more time and get started with the 50 Random Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played by a male in the movies.
3) If a Muggle were to come across Hogwarts, all they would see was a sign that said, "Keep out, dangerous building."
4) Fred and George were born on April Fool's Day... That should explain their mischievous acts :)
5) Snape was partially based on a teacher JKR once had.
6) King’s Cross station is where young wizards hop on the Hogwarts Express to get to school. What you might not know is that the station holds special meaning for J.K. Rowling: it’s where her parents met.
7) The reason Snape hates Neville so much is because he could have been the Chosen One, which means Lily could have survived.
8) After the horcrux in Harry was destroyed, he lost the ability to speak Parseltongue.

A very Happy birthday Harry Potter and the congenital intellect , J.K.Rowling! Today is the day of our hero!. The day that all began!. The day which was written a revolutionary and great book by Rowling. Harry Potter , you are a legend!. More than 15 years your made a splash among every types of people.Rowling, You are the maker of these all things! . You made a world with all things.Rowling , You had paid your every attention even at a bit fact!. That is why this world is in thick of Harry Potter!.According to my opinion that is the main quality that a writter should have!. Ms Rowling again I say you are the excellent writter we ever seen. Sometime I think you have a big maths brain to create such recherche world. According to my feelings creating a new world is the most difficult to do anyone. But Rowling , you won it without any challange . You made a world by yourself for many kinds of people!. Sometimes the story of Harry potter made someone happy. Please think about child abuses!. Through the Harry Potter You, Ms. Rowling revealed the suffering of a child, actually Harry...

I absolutely love book Ginny (GoF, HBP, DH). JK makes her a bright, fierce person but in the films, she doesn't seem to be anything like that. She's still reserved like she was in the first few films (which she was supposed to be) but they haven't made much of an effort to show the change in Ginny as she matures.This (pardon my french) really damn well pisses me off.

They make an effort to show the change in Neville and I think they done a really good job with him but I just don't see how they couldn't have put in the same amount of effort with Ginny.

I also love the Ginny/Harry pairing in the book, and the whole build up, especially in Half Blood Prince. I was looking forward to seeing what the film were going to do with them and quite frankly, I was not happy. They start off with Harry arranging a date with some girl in the cafe who is completely irrelevant to the whole HP story which I found confusing. They make Harry seem like he's interested in other girls besides Ginny but in the book he only ever seems interested in Ginny.

First of all I have to admit that I initially liked the twilight. The first movie I mean, it was pretty entertaining. Then I saw new moon and eclipse, hated both these films. The character I started to like initially were spoiled in thFor example ever since Edward’s suicide attempt in new moon and Jacob’s begging for Bella’s love, I despised both those characters.
Okay here is the deal.
Breaking was a hope that there will be some improvement in the saga, especially in terms of direction and acting. My friends told me that the movie breaking dawn was great and that they felt like crying at the end and all. I thought, okay give it a shot. But no, it was much much much worse.
I saw Harry Potter and the deathly hallows before that of course. I liked it even though many subplots from the book were missing.
Here are the reasons why I hated breaking dawn movie and why Harry Potter and the deathly hallows was a lot better.

1.    Plot. (Spoilers)

ahem. try not to laugh.
ok so I found this stupid person listing all the reasons why twilight is better than twilight. so I replied to every single one. and this is her picture:





1. Robert Pattinson, can you say HOT? And he's totally sexy when he sparkles!

So? Hotness has absolutely no correlation to acting ability. He was also in Harry Potter first.


2. Taylor Lautner, I mean, have you SEEN those muscles?

NOT HOT. Strange nose, closed up eyes and no acting ability. That is just my personal opinion. As I said, hotness has no correlation to acting ability.

3. Kristen Stewart. An extremely talented and beautiful actress, with loads of potential.

Ugly and emotionless. No talent whatsoever. IMO.

4. The Volturi. REALISTIC villains, instead of insane freaks in cloaks, like Voldemort and the Death Eaters.

The Volturi wear cloaks too, you dumbass. And they are vampires which isn't anymore realistic than wizards because they are both fictional. Please explain your reasoning on this.

The Harry Potter movie era is over, but the adventures of the amazing characters still live in our hearts. Still, several times people are kind of wacko and say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. I'm going to give you a list of reasons why this is not true, and prove once and for all, that Harry Potter really is the ultimate book/movie series.

1)J.K. Rowling doesnt change mythology- vampires are vampires and if they go in the sun, they die. On the other hand, Stephenie Meyer ruins mythology and lets her vampire character SPARKLE and not DIE in the sunlight
2) Harry Potter actually has suspense. In Twilight, you just know the Edward is gonna come back for Bella.
3) In Harry Potter, you get to see the characters start to have romantic feelings for each other. Whereas in Twilight, Edward and Bella fell in love in a pathetically short amount of time.
4) JKR was able to explain a very complicated story using only a few big words. Stephenie Meyer, however, has so many big words in her books, it seems as if she pulled out a thesaurus for every other word.
