Drew (drewbeck) 1. It has a more realistic ending.
2. It has a PLOT!
3. It has Subplots
4.It has several characters with depth.
5. JK is not afraid to sacrifice the good guys
6. The characters aren't one dementional
7. JK researches her material, has good use of Latin and history within her books. Spells are named after Latin words and do what the Latin words do. Names of soem characters give hints as to what that character is such as Sirius which means Dog Star for more Albus which means White (pure wizard) http://www.angelfire.com/mi3/cookaram...
8. You can relate Harry Potter to WWII because of similarities you could learn some history from the books.
9. reason 8 being said some characters are loosly based off real life people Dumbledoor=Winston Churchill and VOldemort=Hitler Death eaters=Nazi's
10. Harry Potter teaches a good deal about prejudice and slavery with the use of different imaginative creatures (Which also required research to create)
11. JK wrote a whole imaginative world that goes further then her 7 books. She thought about more then writing a story but created a whole world with information that never actually made it into the books. Similar to JRR Tolkien (author who wrote Lord of the Rings, if you don't bother to read classics.)
12. Twilight WILL fad out it is a fad and many fans are on it because of the Bandwagon effect and because Robert Patterson is good looking But Harry Potter will be around forever
13. The writing is just better.
14. Twilight is too predictable and thrown clumsily together. Harry potter is not predictable and JK Rowling ties all knots and answers all questions.
15. Harry Potter teaches good values and relationships. There are no controlling abusive relationships and the hero can go one without their partner.
16. The female characters are strong and intelligent. Hermione doesn't NEED a boyfriend to be a strong good role model for girls everywhere
17. Harry Potter can be read by any age group. Twilight is geared more towards angst 15 year olds.
18. A story about a teenage wizard facing off against a dark lord beats one about a sparkling, lovesick vampire anyday.
19. The main characters in Harry Potter have flaws.
20. JKR doesn't repeat herself 500 times, using the same comparison EVERY SINGLE TIME. We get it Edward is hard and cold like granite; you don't need to use that analogy every time his name is mentioned.
21. Stephan King (or any other distinguished author for that matter) has yet to tell JK Rowling that she "can't write"

Can you check the link you posted?

22. They have more characters than like a vamp family, Bella and Jacob.

Drew (drewbeck) OOps! Sorry, Lemme edit, hold on.

23. I don't care if Bella ate a Granola Bar for breakfast and I don't care about reading about how good-looking Edward is for the hundredth time. It just gets boring.

24. J.K. has a better fan-base than just teens

Drew (drewbeck) 25. The characters do not have a hundred year difference. LOL

Drew (drewbeck) 26. Hogwarts! I have a hard time dealing with the fact that Hogwarts isn't real. I mean, how the hell can JK Rowling come up with all that stuff in her mind? Moving staircases, dungeons, moving potraits and enchanted ceilings! Wow... but the school Twilight has is... Forks High School. Boring much?

Drew (drewbeck) 27. Twilight is sexist. Bella always counts on Edward- Edward will do this, Edward will do that. That ruins everything women have said about them being equal to men.

Drew (drewbeck) 28. When the first Harry Potter film was made, J.K Rowling was asked if she would play Lily Potter in the Mirror of Erised. J.K Rowling said no, because she didn't think a author of a book should be in the film.
What did Stephenie Meyer do? She is in the film, as a random lady with a laptop. Why do she need to be in her own movie? Really?
29. Quiddtch vs. baseball? Not a hard question.

Drew (drewbeck) 30. The whole Twilight series sold somewhere around 30.5 million copies. And Harry Potter series (upto Book 4) sold 324 million copies. :) Still not convinced?

Drew (drewbeck) 31. Dumbledore always says: It's best not to dwell on dreams. Stephanie Meyer told us: The idea for Twilight came to me in a dream.

Drew (drewbeck) 32. I earned a few IQ points trying to find the plot that didn't exist in Twilight. (It's true!)

tallfubar (fallingfromresolution) 33. The jokes in actually funny. *cough*Bella*cough* Take a look at Fred and George...

Miss Silvertongue (misssilvertongue) | 52 comments 34. ............It's Harry Potter. Enough said.
