@Pensive_Seeker: Sorry abt that. :) But it was necessary. Cuz you need to take off your clothes to take bath, right? Plus that's not why we saw GoF. But in New Moon it was more like stripping and it was so irrelevant.

@Pensieve_Seeker: and Harry was dreadfully embarrassed when he was caught in that position by Myrtle. Did Eddie blushed when he stripped? No he just *sparkles* -rolls eyes-

1597. Ginny Weasley did not try to kill herself when Harry Potter broke up with her in the end of the sixth book to go and SAVE THE WORLD!

1598. Because even after so many years, talking about HP gives you goosebumps and amazing memories.

1600: Bella Swan = Moaning Myrtle. Meyer copied that too.
Edward Cullen = Dobby, the house-elf (loyalty-wise and looks, but dobby is cute)

Therefore: According to Twilighters

Moaning Myrtle + Dobby = TRUE LOVE

missDK:its true,check out- link

1603.Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was named Film of the Year at the RAAM awards

1604.there are phrases like;"the new Harry Potter","the next JK Rowling",but no "the new/next Twilight/Stephenie Meyer".That's saying something.
più di un anno fa DivyaHarry said…
I am so sorry. True that Dobby is much better. Ok I stand corrected.

Moaning Myrtle (Bella) + Flobberworm (Edward) = TRUE LOVE

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows voted #1 for 100 books that defined the noughties.
The Telegraph said it "stands as a cornerstone of the decade, a melding of high and low culture that appeals to all ages and nations."

Twilight is #32:
"Astonishing, mainly for the ineptitude of her prose" and "teen vampire schlock."
più di un anno fa DivyaHarry said…
1606: The great demand for Harry Potter books motivated the New York Times to create a separate bestseller list for children's literature in 2000.

The demand for Twilight books created a new meaning for "toilet paper".

1607: Stephen King called the HARRY POTTER series "a feat of which only a superior imagination is capable", and declared "Rowling's punning, one-eyebrow-cocked sense of humour" to be "remarkable". However, he wrote that despite the story being "a good one", he is "a little tired of discovering Harry at home with his horrible aunt and uncle", the formulaic beginning of all seven books. King has also joked that "Rowling's never met an adverb she did not like!" He does however predict that Harry Potter "will indeed stand time's test and wind up on a shelf where only the best are kept; I think Harry will take his place with Alice, Huck, Frodo, and Dorothy and this is one series not just for the decade, but for the ages".

Stephen King stated (about Meyer and Twilight), "the real difference [between J.K. Rowling and Meyer] is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer, and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good." However, King understood the appeal of the series, adding, "People are attracted by the stories, by the pace and in the case of Stephenie Meyer, it's very clear that she's writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It's exciting and it's thrilling and it's not particularly threatening because it's not overtly sexual."

Hey guys! I'm new to Fanpop as a registered user, but I've been checking out this forum for quite some time now. I could think of many reasons why HP is better than Twilight, but I think you guys have listed them all already! I just wanted to say that Twilight will never be as good as HP. LONG LIVE HARRY POTTER!

LONG LIVE HARRY POTTER! Heh heh. Who will turn thirty this year (I think so, anyway... *calculates* Yes, yes, he will turn thirty).
più di un anno fa MissDK said…
I LOVE these quotes by Stephen King. He is a smart man and a really really good author as well. So he knows what he is talking about.
At least Stephenie Meyer knows that "Sex sells" and she used that in her books. That's why they sold so much.

But then AGAIN - not nearly as much as the first 4 HP books.
più di un anno fa potterrox said…
Mrs-Grint- He's 30?? I techinically know that but still thats very weird. Your post inspired..
1608: Even though the book took place in the 1990's it doesn't seem dated at all. It transcends time!
più di un anno fa renrae said…
Mrs-Grint, I love you, truly I do, but

"1582. Does Twilight have it's own fantastic, quotable, hilarious musical? Yeah, that's what I thought."

Twilight does, in fact, have an awesome, quotable musical, and it is, in fact, better than the Twilight series and movies themselves. Check out "twilightthemusical.com" for more info. Unfortunately, not all of the parts are yet posted. Fortunately, it gave us the quote:

Bella: So, are we friends now?
Edward: Yes, friends. The way the cheetah is friends with the antelope just as he sinks his teeth into her.
Bella: You lost me.

And, as for my own, new-ish reason. It might seem as if it's just a bunch of other reasons rehashed into one, but I hope not: 1608: Not only did Harry Potter introduce children to reading and writing, it introduced them to relationships, basic morals, and minor politics. It taught us that you can't always trust everyone, even if they ARE in a place of power, and it taught us how to behave around our peers, friends, and first loves. It taught us the difference between right and wrong. It taught us about human and animal rights, and that you should care for all other creatures as most of them mean you no harm.

And that, my friends, is the true magic of Harry Potter. *steps down off of soapbox*

Thanks for being so welcoming, HP lovers. I'm glad to be here!
Twilight has a musical? Gosh. Twilight seems to be copying HP in so many ways, doesn't it? Did you all know there's a Twilight Puppet Pals? It's nowhere near as good as PPP . . . but hey, at least it's making fun of Twilight. LOL.
più di un anno fa grainne93 said…
What are you guys on? 1609? hmm, well i am loving reading this.

1609. Harry Potter is timeless - our children will read it, will they read Twilight? nahh.

1610. Harry Potter fans are intelligent, twilight fans are mostly screaming 14 year olds, who didnt read the book before the movie came out (i read it about three years ago, and i enjoyed it i'll admit, but NEVER did i expect people to compare it to Harry Potter)

1611. anyone who says harry potter isnt good hasnt read it, or doesnt have any imagination, or is just plain stupid.

1612. Harry Potter is in a league of its own.

1613. Harry Potter is aesthetically and beautifully written, in twilight i was constantly thinking "paint me a picture here!!"

1614. there are no loose ends like in twilight, and even if there are some small unanswered questions, we are able to figure it out for ourselves or have our own interpretation.

JKR is a genius.

reason 1615.
harrypotter fans are more intelligent. i just read this on an argument for twilight.

: Because its just common sence to like twilight!!! Haha. Romance means everything. Bella and Edward are like, MENT 4 each other, and everything is just.... PERFENT!! In Harry potter, u would that that harry and harmonie would like... fall in love or something.... and then u watch people die in freaky ways, and then there creepy things....GAHH!!! but yea. (: I mean, its not like twilight is all about an idiot falling in love to get away from her problems.

^^^sssh. grow a brain!

1617: You can fit Harry Potter into all sorts of genres, so anyone who says they don't read it because they don't like genre x, y, or z is just being stupid. It has elements of fantasy, action/adventure, romance, and little snippets of others too. Twilight is just a wannabe supernatural fluff book with no realness, intelligence, or substance. Harry Potter is truly beautiful literature, and anyone who says different is kidding themselves.

1618: Almost all of the spin-offs of Twilight, no matter the medium, are (whether indiscreetly or obviously) making fun of it in a mean way (because it sucks so much). However, things like AVPM, Wrock, PPP, and various parodies on the web of the magical series are either praising it or teasing it all in good fun.
I'm new, by the way. :) Not to the fandom, not by a long shot, but to the site.

1619. “Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies.” -J.K.R.
Pure genius!
(quote from page 443 of HBP)

1620 (thats a big number). The CHARACTERS of twilight are crappy and minor characters have no meaning whatsoever. the characters of harry potter are amazing. and oh my snape!

1621.Twimania Vs Potterverse.Enuff said.

1622.We've got BellaCullen96.need I to explain more?

1623.The fact that what Potterverse left to us is far creative,entertaining and stylish than Bella's constant mumblings of Eddykin's supposed-god complex.

1624.Trust me,Sorting Hat quiz is far more entertaining than "Which Twilight character are you?" quiz

1625.Twifans are copying Potterverse such as Potter Puppet Pals,Wrock & AVPM into TPP,TwiRock & Twilight Musical.Why copy something that you said is worser than yours?
più di un anno fa DivyaHarry said…
@haropuff95: You hit the nail on the head at 1621.

Twilight is a MANIA. Just going crazy over undead guys and apparently "hot" movie stars.

Potter is a UNIVERSE. We love what JKR has created rather than swoon over guys whose career began with Potter (if you know who I mean).

I Love Harry Potter.
più di un anno fa ravenclawgirl5 said…
1626. Harry Potter has a thick, rich, and engrossing plot full of twists and turns. Twilight has a thin, predictable plot that makes you want to fall asleep. Once you start reading Harry Potter, you literally can't stop. The only reason you wouldn't be able to put down Twilight is if someone glued your hands to the book. :P

(Something like this might have been said before, but still . . .)
