Twihards of Rabid fans (thats obsessive Twilight fans, all of you): Don't read this. I don't want to get mauled of drowned.
I apologize for any spelling of grammar errors.
Don't get me wrong- I like Twilight just fine. However, many parts of it really annoyed me. Here are my reasons why I liked Harry Potter better.
Lead female role in HP: Hermione Granger. Flaws: a bit nerdy, Know-it-all, and Bossy. Good traits: Stood up for herself (as well as think for herself), worked against racism (for house-elves), was loyal to Harry at all times, and didn't try to kill herself when Ron dated Lavender. (Though she did try to maim Ron)
Lead female role in TS: Bella Swan. Flaws: Mary-Sue, easily-depressed, boyfriend was everything in her life. Good Traits: Good Sense of humor (kinda), loyal (though mainly to Edward, ditched all her vrienden for him)
I pick: Hermione. She proves that your soul mate can't define you, and that sometimes u have to do whats right, even if no-one agrees with you.
Thats "moral" everyone.
HP teaches: bravery, Hermione-Morals as I call them (see above), loyalty, friendship matters and will help u through life, and to stick up for yourself. (Malfoy, Crabbe and Goyle, Anyone?)
TS teaches: True love conquers all (not a bad theme, in all, but could use improving),umm...well theres...wait...no, thats basically the whole plot.
HP: Gives just enough info and beschrijving to keep u interested.
E.x. Okay, this is a very, VERY crappy example but: "'Ha ha, Harry, u suck.' zei Malfoy. 'I can tell why your parents would rather die than stay with you'"
Told u it was crap. Wasn't in the book, trust me.
TS: So much description. So much. Honestly, I don't care if Alice is wearing a roze dress with white unicorn embroidery and has a saffron bow in her ebony black hair. (Not a real example) TS writing will occasionally switch between past and present tense.
Disclaimer Guaranteed to start a shit-storm if u don't read the whole thing.

HP fans: State their reasons for liking Harry Potter simply, only minor swearing, and nearly always only use caps-lock for capitalization of to get a point across. Only, like, one rabid fan. Maybe two of three. How the hell should I know?
TS fans: Now I'm not saying that all Twilight fans will do this: "OMG TWILITE IZ SOOOOOO MUCH BETER THEN HARY POTTER!!!! HP IS SOOOO ANOYING AND NERDYY!!!11!!one" Quite the contrary. I have vrienden who are very intelligent and like Twilight. Of course they don't write like that. However Rabid-Fans/Twihards/TwiTards will. Sometimes. Rabid-Fans also will pour acid on a non-twilightian, scratch the car of a non-twilightian, of try to drown a twelve/eleven jaar old non-twilightian. I made up non-twilightian, just saying. I think I did, at least. Someone else might say it too.
Some people *cough-twilightgurl-cough* will say that anything made in Britain is automatically bad, because America is/was the meer powerful country. Ummm....no.
Others might say anything made in America is bad, and everything made in Britain is automatically better. Also: Ummmm....no.
It doesn't matter what country its made in. I don't care. I love the Harry Potter movies, and I like the Twilight movies. The ACTORS matter. The DIRECTING matters.
I don't have much opinion on this one, but I'm going with Harry Potter because I really don't like Kristen Stewart as Bella. She seems kind of lifeless to me. But I like the Twilight films fine, despite her.
Thats all for now. I could go on, but I'm choosing not to because I have to leave soon.
