Well, lately I have come across a variation of the following sentence a lot:
"Harry Potter is better than Twilight because Twilight gives a lot of bad messages"
I won't deny the message given by Twilight is an awful one and easy to spot, but Harry Potter also has its share of bad messages, and whats worse is that it is conceived between lines. There's an extense debate among psychologist on the validity of subliminal messages, but that I will not discuss. Following I will list, in my opinion, the (bad) messages each book gives.
So lately I've been thinking of the Cullens and how damn rich they are. And then I stop and go, wait a minute, how is that possible?
So I am going to compare the Cullen expenses and the average normal-people expenses in this chart.
Expense Normal People The Cullens
-Food X X* -Clothing X X* -Shelter X X -Gas X X -Inssurance X -Electricity X X -Running water X ?* -Heating/cooling X -School supplies X X -Blood X -At home Medical supplies and medicine X X* -Private island X* and its maintenance X -Cottage or campground, etc X -Travel expenses X X* -Cell phones X X -Useless Twilight merchandise X -Lunch money...
Here is an 5 Part Essay wriiten by someone on livejournal that proves Edward isnt abusive. -------------------------------------------------
I have been having feelings of guilt off and on about shipping Edward and Bella. I'm sure the majority of us Twilight fans of have heard about the accusations of Edward being an abusive boyfriend. The accusers are able to back it up with proof of certain behaviors that count as abuse that you can read off of a red flag list. What they refuse to do though is look at the big picture. All they see is the surface and refuse to ask why. They even go to such far...
Arthur Weasley: Father of 7 kids, loves his wife Molly, works hard to make ends meet and never seen lying around the house like some Husbands, although low-income, he continues to be positive and happy about life, loyal, jokes around sometimes, there for his children, offers to be a father figure to Harry, never gives up, and [on a side-note] very accepting of others. He also gives advice as well and doesn't let enemies get him down.
Charlie Swan: Has only 1 daughter, divorced and never thought on dating anyone else, when he's not working he either hunts or sits all day drinking beer and watching...

The two Bellas: Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter and Bella Swan from Twilight are being compared. These are 50 reasons why I think Bellatrix beats Bella.
1: Most important: Helena Bonham Carts vs. Kristen Stewart... is there really any competition?? 2. When people act as if Bellatrix is incapable of doing certain things, it just makes her fight harder. When people act as if Bella is incapable of doing certain things, she becomes all depressed. 3. Bellatrix is exceedingly loyal. For a time, Bella couldn't choose WHO to be loyal to (Edward or Jacob) 4. Bellatrix went into Azkaban for--what...
So I have heard/read a LOT of arguments over this topic, and I find it ridiculous. Here are some reasons why they can't be compared with each other:
1- Writing styles. Rowling writes in a descriptive third-person, whereas Meyer writes in a first-person account of a seventeen year old girl. You can't expect Bella to talk like a professional poet of some sort, I doubt many average teenage girls do that.
2- Plot. Harry Potter is mainly about wizards and fighting. Twilight is about Vampires and romance... Totally the same (Major burning sarcasm).
3- Audience. Harry Potter is aimed for children. Before...
So I am reading reasons as to why Twilight fans think Twilight is better than Harry Potter. I just want to make it clear; there is a big difference between liking one series better than another, and one series actually being better than another. I also want to reply to some of the more common ones I've seen.
"Twilight has more love!" Okay, Twilight does not have more love than Harry Potter by any means. Twilight has a lot of obsessive lust, which is often mistaken for love, but they are quite different.
Why is their relationship lust? Why isn't it love?
There was once a young girl called, at least on Fanpop, GemonkDruid. One day, she picked up this interesting book at the library. "Ooh," she said. "It's about 400 pages long, and has an interesting cover. Must be a good read then."
So she borrowed it, using her library card, and brought it home. It was forgotten for a little while, but then on a boring rainy day, she decided, "What the heck, I should just read it." So she did. First chapter, second chapter, third, etc. Until before she knew it, she finished the whole book.
And what was the first thing she thought when she finished it?
I've been seeing this question a lot lately. Twilight fans don't know what is wrong with Bella. I have written this article in order to try to explain exactly what is wrong with Bella. There are actually many things wrong with her, as I will be explaining in this article.
The first thing I will acknowledge is the mental instability of Bella Swan. In New Moon, Edward dumps her, and she becomes depressed. Now, I understand that it is very disheartening to have your boyfriend dump you. I would be able to understand if she had been depressed for, maybe two weeks? No more than a month. But Bella...
I don't mean any hate towards non of the series. I just found it seriously immature how both fans of the series blame eachother. .................................................. I went through many sites that are Anti-Twilight and then I started searching for Anti-HP. Ofcourse what I have saw was mostly twilight hate. I find it very,very useless too have this 'debate' about Twilight vs Harry Potter.
As i also read most articles from this spot I have seen that MANY people here truly HATE twilight. There's nothing wrong with it. The only problem is that it is invading all the sites.
I cannot stress strongly enough the contempt I have for the franchise of Twilight. Or at least the book. The films are more funny than anything else, and honestly I don't hate any of the cast an crew working on it. Having read the source material, I can see they had little to work with. Harry Potter, on the other hand... I like. I don't LOVE it; I'm no Potterhead by any means, however much I might have been in the past. But it will always hold a very special place for me. I grew up with the books and films, reading and seeing them years apart from each other - growing up along with the characters...
As you probably know, the Twilight vs. Harry Potter spot is a debate spot. We come here mainly to debate over which series is better and why, or to discuss why we like one series better than the other, then others can, if they wish, debate the points made in the other persons arguments.
However, there is a difference between debating and fighting.
When you debate, you are willing to see both sides of an argument. You have to understand why the other person is saying what they are saying before you debate against their point. Understanding does NOT necessarily mean agreeing. It means "I see why...
These are the weirdest, saddest Twilight defenses on the planet. *NOTE: I have nothing against reasonable Twilight fans, but ones like this? *facepalm*

Believe it or not, I do not hate Twilight. The plot is fair, internesting setting, a lot of the characters are good, and not to mention the brilliant fight scenes! The soundtracks are lovely as well as the actors/actresses. Overall, I would give the entire series a C+. I would give it a higher grade if it wasn't for the poor writing, rambling, and somewhat extreme fans. But what's really the anchor of that sinking ship is the books' protagonist and narrator...
Of course there's a main character in almost every book I read that I really do not like. For example: in Hunger Games, it's...
Is it f**k Stephanie Meyers is diabolical and quite frankly paint drying on a wall is more f**king exciting than her writing and compared to Stephanie Meyers writing, J.K Rowling's writing and detail about each and every character even if some of the characters are only briefly mentioned are absolutely genius
2. The Actors/Actresses who film the movie are talented
What a load of bull for one Kristen Stewart can not act the emotion she shows throughout the entire saga is moody, moody and a little bit more of moody and don't get me started on Robert Pattinson he's not that...
95 Reasons Why Twilight Sucks Opinion by BedIntruder posted 4 hours ago
1. Bella is a perfect character (“Mary Sue”), which Meyer hides by calling her clumsy. 2. Being clumsy is not a flaw if Edward always catches her. 3. She can’t do anything without Edward. 4. And when he leaves she attempts to commit suicide. 5. Meyer is living out her own fantasies by writing about Bella, who is clearly herself. 6. The books aren’t well written, just because every other word is a fancy adjective doesn’t make it good writing. 7. All the rules Meyer sets for being a vampire are broken by the end of the...
