I am the person that goes around saying that Twilight is for brain-dead morons and that Harry Potter is amazing and deserves to worshipped. I get that people prefer either one, and I do respect that, I just really hate the idea and premise of Twilight. Bellas shows practically slavish devotion to Edward, and I just hate the idea. I hate the way Jacob is so obsessed, and the whole Renesmee thing.... Man, just kill me now!
Harry Potter, on the other hand, I think is awesome because there is such an intresting plot that is so intricately woven around and into each other so that all the sub-plots connect with the main one and I just think it's genius.
Exactly. Harry Potter broke new ground; the imagination of Rowling gave us new concepts of magic and ideas at the same time that it was fantastic and entertaining, well-written and interesting.
Twilight, on the other hand, is just another triangle-drama-love story that can be seen all over the place. The story is far from original. And the idea that an undead vampire can procreate? I'm not impressed. All of it is just embarrassing (at least to us Stoker-readers...). The vampires are original only in one sense; all the traits that "make" them vampiric has been taken away from them. Also much of the plot can be found very close to being the same as Twilights in previously published books within the same genre.
I will not take away an authors artistic liscense to alter what they write about, or put down those who are sold on Twilight (because I can see the point even if it does not speak to me personally).
