I never understood the logic behind rebutting opinions with opinions. "Twilight has action!" "No it doesn't!" In their opinion Twilight does not have action. Luckily, their opinion is not fact. Their opinion is also not more valid just because they are a Harry Potter fan.

Especially when their opinions are founded on factually incorrect information. Especially in regards to the "the only times vampires can walk out into the sunlight is when they are protected. [...] Even Dracula!" and "all vampires have fangs! Twilight vampires are the only ones that don't!"

My last straw was the slut-shaming of Bella. (Who, in reality, isn't any more promiscuous than Ginny.)

Well that was a waste of time.
All this proved to me is how ridiculous all people are.

1. The character have personalities and depth. They Grow and change and even minor characters are so complex
-Dobby: Dobby was a house elf that belonged to the Malfoy family. At great risk to himself, he tried to keep Harry from danger by attempting to persuade him not to return to Hogwarts. When this failed, he continued trying to make Harry return home. Dobby was different than other house elves in the fact he wanted to feel appreciated for his servitude. He was treated poorly by the Malfoy family and was often instructed to punish himself in terrible ways. After Harry came out of the Chamber of Secrets, he tricked Lucius Malfoy into freeing Dobby. Dobby then went to work at Hogwarts and was always grateful to Harry Potter. He helped Harry out of a few jams. He once stole gilleyweed out of Professor Snape's supply closet to help Harry through a task in the tri-wizard tournament. Dobby had a great love for socks, being the item that won him his freedom. One Christmas he was moved to tears when Harry presented him with socks as a gift. Dobby's final deed was that of great courage and loyalty when he made a mass rescue of those imprisoned in Malfoy Manor. As he was making his final escape with Harry, Bellatrix threw a knife. It was intended for Harry, but hit Dobby squarely in the chest. Harry, Dean, and Ron made Dobby a grave at Bill and Fleur's home, Shell Cottage. Harry marked Dobby's headstone with, "Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf".

-Winky- The opposite of Dobby. When freed, she cries and is not happy at all about it. She knows Crouch's secret. She was founding holding Harry's wand which had conjured the dark mark.

Hedwig-Hedwig could be considered an owl with a 'formal' personality, and has a habit of staring/hooting "reproachfully", cuffing Harry with a wing when miffed (which is rather often), and being far more vocal than the average Snowy Owl. She also can act with hurt or anger due to Harry's sometimes innocently thoughtless actions or words. It is implied throughout the books that Hedwig can fully understand Harry and, apparently, to some extent vice versa. This implies in turn that she is a very intelligent owl, or that owls hide their intelligence from Muggles.

Those alone are 3 minor characters and have so much importance to them!

2. It has love not lust. Harry/Ginny. Ron/Hermione. Lily sacrificed herself for Harry which saved his life on multiple accounts. Bella likes Edward b/c he is good looking. Edward likes Bella b/c she smells good.

3. In twilight, I found a boring, stupid plot. Twihards will argue that but I mean I know there is a plot but its very... bland. Its MOSTLY (90%)Edward and Bella obsessing over each other... There is minimal action and not much suspense.

In HP, Harry is fighting for his life and struggling through everyday school things. He survived a killing curse from the 2nd greatest sorcerer in the world. In the first book he has to protect the sorcerer's stone and goes through an obstacle to get to it, etc. In the second, the chamber of secrets is opened and students are in danger. He also finds out he can speak parseltongue. He also "kills" a diary which you dont think is important then but in the 7th book you find out it was a horcrux. One of the things I love about JK Rowling's writing is that even small things matter. Anyways in the third book, A mass murderer is after him who later turns out good and is his godfather. In the fourth book there is the triwizard tournament and the quidditch world cup. Sixth book, you find out a lot about Voldemorts past and why he is bad. Dumbledore also dies AND THERE IS NOW ROMANCE!!! The seventh bookk is a grand finale to the whole series with a BATTLE! And a hunt for the rest of the horcruxes. This paragraph cant even sum up 1/100000000 of this series!!!

I have more but will post later

P.S. I just wanted to say something that a lot of Twihards say. "You can feel Bella's confusion between Edward and Jacob" I think everyone knows that she is gonna choose Edward. I never doubted it for even one second.

Yes, I am a HP fan, and yes, I do agree with most of the arguments, but if other like the Twilight Series, it's their opinion- and you're probably not going to be able to change it.

You know, you would give yourself much more credit if you had actually plotted out Twilight instead of just listing a bunch of quotes that nobody said. that would be like me putting:
"Yay I got a letter! :)"
"I lost the letter :("
"Yay I got a letter! :)"
"I lost the letter :("
"Shopping spree!!"
"I like trains!"
"I did magic!"
"I can fly!"
"Oh look a puppy!"
"Oh no, that guy has a face on his face!"

And then explaning Bella's observation of Edward's struggle of resistance while she comes to terms with her introducdion to a whole new way of living while helping fabricate and maintain the farce.


There was no struggle to choose between Edward and Jacob. Bella said so herself. In the book and movie (Eclipse). What she struggled with was the decision between two versions of herself. One represented by Edward and the other by Jacob. It wasn't her literally trying to decide which boy she loves.

Ok sorry about the whole quote thing. I guess that was unfair! But for the rest of the things I said, I agree with them.
