The article is not mine I only used it cause everyone has always wrote articles aganist Twilight how about Harry Potter now
--------------------------------------------------
I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows a couple of days back. In my view, the book is much more tightly written than the last two books. And that itself is a relief. Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are much better etched out in Deathly Hallows, and there are quite a bit of surprises, disappointments, revelations.

But when someone asked me today what I thought about it, I replied,...

I honestly don't hate, dislike, like or love Twilight. It's just neutral with me. I never really had any problem with it until I saw an article saying that Harry Potter copied Twilight. The person who wrote it also went so far as to say that J.K. Rowling is ugly and that Stephenie Meyer is the pretty one. It just irked me, because the looks don't even matter (they're both equal too) and it's not a valid point.

She said something about Sirius Black being copied from Jacob Black - who is commonly described as a big wolf in his werewolf form. And Sirius (she spelled it as 'Serious'. I laughed...

Avatar is the highest-grossing film of all-time, with a global gross of almost $2.8 billion, and ten films have grossed in excess of $1 billion. All the films presented here have had a theatrical run in the last twenty years, and films that have not played during this period do not appear in the chart due to ticket-price inflation, population size and ticket purchasing trends not being considered. Gone with the Wind—first released in 1939—has earned $3.3 billion globally when adjusted to contemporary prices, making it the best all-time performer at the box office.[10] The most represented...

Hiya everyone! I saw this on the LOTR section and I thought, "Hm, this sounds like fun." I don't have much knowledge on LOTR (although I'm reading the books, it's taking some time to digest) so I thought it would be equally as fun as making an HP or Twilight character so I decided to make this. Okay, so answer these questions and you'll have a character:

Second part of my review on both of the books this fanspot is about.

Despite most arguments on how different both series are, they do have many shocking resemblances, specially in the bad message part. I hope that after reading both of this, next time a fanpick question of "Which is best" pops up, you take a minute to consider your answer.

1. If you have friends or people that care about you, there's no need for you to have skills. Just let them sacrifice themselves.
Explanation: Harry Potter prevails against all perils not because he is a skillful wizard or because he is smart. He prevails because...

I found these fascinating, thought you guys might too, :)


Bellatrix - “Bella” is a construct of the word “bellum” meaning “war” and “trix” refers to “a woman in power.” Bellatrix is therefore known as the “Female Warrior” and is also the pale yellow star indicating the left shoulder of the constellation Orion, the Great Hunter.

Blaise - Blaise was the teacher of Merlin. From the Roman name Blasius, which means “lisping.” From the Latin “blaesus.” A famous bearer was Blaise Pascal, a French mathematician and philosopher.

Chapter 1 part 1
It was 8.30 am. A 17 year old girl lay asleep in her bed, a naughty smile on her face. She was obviously dreaming. She put her arms around her pillow like she was embracing it. She could dream on forever. But unfortunately…
“Isabella Swan, if you wish to be on that plane in time, you better get your pretty ass out of your bed right now!” a female voice shouted from downstairs.
Bella groaned and with her head half underneath the sheets she touched for the alarm clock. She opened her eyes a little a checked the hour. The knowledge she gained, made her eyes almost fall out...

Love is a tricky emotion. There are some things that feel like love but they are much too superficial to be the real thing. Real love takes time and doesn't happen overnight. Here are three things that people often confuse for love.

I don’t personally believe that love can really be defined by anyone, but oh well. People like to try new things.

Lust A.k.a, Twilight


Lust is the feeling that is often mistaken for love at first sight. Lust is an intense and sudden attraction to somebody...

Oh do you not see, the language so cruciated,
By your most unfortunate attempt in grammars?
Do you believe, for that moment that we're mirthed?
Well, then you are as mistaken as the Balaclava Brits.

Don't you see, your own insults to your common decency?
Do you not hear, our desperate attempts to save your sanity?
I hope you hear, I must hope you see.
But I think, you only see your vanity.

Vanity, vanity, everything vanity...
But then where are your humanity? The World wonder'd...

Let's just get this straight before you go harping on my article because I'm a Twitard. Because I'm not. I'm just getting a little sick of Bella Swan being called "too perfect". She's perfect about to the extent that I am a Twilight fan. Which is to say, not at all.


OK, Let me tell you a story about a REAL Mary-Sue.

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Anastasia B. Ana was in 6th grade, she was tiny for the age of ten (she skipped kindergarten), she was absolutely adorable, and she was in Gifted and 7th grade math. Boys all loved her, and she could crochet, knit, and she had perfect handwriting....

I’ve read many lists pointing out Twilight “Plot Holes”, but more often than not, the lists aren’t very valid at all. Half of them are usually just complaints, pointing out something they don’t like about Twilight (Example:” Why would vampires go to high school?”, or “Why does Bella have so many friends?”). The rest are just factually incorrect, or can be logically theorized. These are usually followed by “Stephenie Meyer obviously ditched history class”, or “Hasn’t Stephenie ever heard of logic?”, or my personal favorite, “I would know, I had a lesson about it...

Whoa. Its the final battle already? It seems like this all started a week ago....which it did....so...yeah.
NOTE: I am a Twilight fan, so do not suggest that I think all Twilight fans are crazy. I also think HP is better than Twilight, though. Just a little.
NOTE:I like HP and T, I am not trying to make fun of either, I'm just having fun with some of the ideas.
NOTE: okay, I'm just putting this note in to build suspense.
NOTE: This is it. The big one. The end. The last one. The one and only. The awesome one. The one that is the end. The climatic one. The one that, if you do not read, will send...

One thing I've noticed in general is that anti's tend to make a pretty big deal out of the Twilight vampires sparkling. I've seen people saying things like real vampires don't sparkle, vampires not sparkling was a fact, and that it was gay of them to sparkle. Okay, of ALL the things to criticize in Twilight, people are going after the SPARKLING? Seriously?

First off, at least where I'm from, calling something “gay” as an insult is considered really rude and distasteful. Besides being rude and homophobic, it's also generalizing and stereotyping. Just because something sparkles doesn't make...

Forget about vampires. Forget about werewolves.

How funny and bizarre would these scenarios be if your boyfriend would act like this?

Enjoy!

Ideal Man: "No you're not."
You:"....? Of course I will."
Ideal Man: "You might get into an argument with [insert friend's name here] and s/he might stab you with a knife. At least let me come hang out outside of his/her house and oogle through the window to make sure you're safe."

I'll tell you my story. I love Harry Potter. For all the right reasons. So one day my friend loans me his Twilight DVD and the horror began.

I didn't like the movie. I thought the actors were too forced and forgot to take acting lessons but it was a laugh. I then realized that this horror was a series of books. My bookworm friend had all the books and I borrowed it from her for a bit of light reading(*grin*).

All would have been fine and I wouldn't have existed on this site had it not been for the words she showed me on the back of the book that said 'Move over Harry Potter'. I lost my remaining...

I did not write this!

Things not to do at Hogwarts! (Well...not unless you have Harry's invisibility cloak and the Marauders' Map or you are Fred and/or George)

1. No matter how good a fake Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve Irwin during Care of Magical Creatures class.

2. Growing marijuana or hallucinogenic mushrooms is not an extra credit project for Herbology.

3. “I’ve heard every possible joke about Oliver Wood’s name” is not a challenge.

4. The Giant Squid is not an appropriate date to the Yule Ball.

5. I will not use Umbridge’s quill to write “I told you I was...

I made a list of combined and possible plot holes about Harry Potter. Some of them I came up with myself, and some of them I got from different places online. If you can give explanation answering the questions ,do it please.
I purposely put in a few really really picky question because there are a lot of articles about Twilight like this, so I want to see how Harry Potter fans respond to the ridiculously picks questions. I'm not going to tell you which ones they are, but they should be easy to pick out.





1.    Why do the founders of Hogwarts have surnames? Family names weren’t...

Okay. I'm going TRY to be thorough, and express my reasons in a clear way. If there's something you think is wrong or incorrect, feel free to debate that point.

PART I:PLOT

The plot of the book is like the structure of a building-without it, the book is moot. Both HP and T have simple plots (Girl falls in love with a vampire, boy discovers he's a wizard).

However, HP (In my opinion) is unpredictable, whereas Twilight is very predictable.
In fact, (I swear this is true) I had a person who'd never read the Twilight books before, watched the movies, and had barely known the series existed, read book...

Why do you like Harry Potter/Twilight?
I'm sorry, but I want to read something positive. Please, no fighting and number these. So, I'll go first.

I like Harry Potter.

1. Hermione shows that girls can be smart and it's great if they are. None of the girls need a boy to survive. They can defend themselves. Harry and Ron do depend on Hermione for schoolwork. Ginny is accomplished at the Bat-Bogey Hex.
2. Harry is willing to sacrifice himself if it means his friends will survive.
3. Harry's is brave, but he still has emotion. When he goes into the forest in Ch. 34 (DH), he's scared, but he...

I was thinking about difference in Harry Potter and Twilight background and this is what I concluded. Enjoy!

Knowledge of magical beings not soo very far from their backyards
Harry Potter: As I can get from HP books and The Tales of Beedle the Bard, wizarding world was known to Muggles, but because of witch hunt and victims of it in both sides, wizard decided to go underground and not to be commonly know to people. They don`t use spells in front of Muggles and if sombody does manage to discover their secret, they erase their memory.
However, there are exeptions. Families of Mugle-borns ofcourse...
