Harry Potter versus TwilightHarry Potter versus TwilightHarry Potter versus Twilight6 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I am sick and tired of hearing about this Harry Potter versus Twilight thing. The books and authors have nothing in common, except that they are well known and quite popular amongst many people. However even then it is stupid to compare the two. I first saw this comparison when they set up a section in our school library with a board that said If you love Stephenie Meyer, youll love and had a bunch of retarded vampire books underneath (All retarded but with the exception of Vampirates. Theyre vampire pirates. How much more awesome can you get?). There was a newspaper clipping of an article calling Meyer the new J.K. Rowling. By that time I had already read the three books that were out and I was like WUT?! I thought that the Twilight books were good but very overall mediocre and completely different to Harry Potter in every way. Comparing them seemed absolutely ludicrous. Since then my opinion of the books has gone
Twilight vs. Harry PotterBefore I begin I would like to clarify that I'm not either a crazy Harry Potter fan or a Twihard. I've read both series and being completely honest I loved the Harry Potter series. But when I read the Twilight series I didn't think it was that good as people make it out to be. And when I heard someone say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter I felt inspired to make a comparison and show that Harry Potter far more superior than Twilight.

And don't agree with what I wrote, its my opinion. I'm allowed to say what I believe just like you're allowed to express your love and devotion for Twilight. With that being said I hope you enjoy.
In the Harry Potter books everything and everyone with rich detail. All characters of the series have their unique description of

"Mom Dad, it came. My letter came in", I yelled to my poor surprised parents.
My mom put down the plate of toast on the table and reached for the envelope and took out my book list.
"Oh Hermione, are you sure you are not taking too many classes?"
Her question stopped my gleefulness short as I ran through what classes I had this semester through my head.
"No, mom I do not think so. Besides Professor McGonagall told me it would be possible to pull off the load. Besides, it is my last year and there is still so much to learn about the magical world."
My dad walked over to my mom to check out the list for himself.

Fred & George: A Short Character Analysis
Right, so first off I'm a big fan of the twins: both twins, not just Fred. I've always appreciated both as separate characters and I've never really understood how so many people never picked up on their differences. So I decided to do what I do best - RANT (wayhey!). Keep in mind this is just my own opinion based on what I've read in books 1-7.
In the first place it's important to know and understand the twins' differences, especially if you're writing a story that puts particular focus on them. Yes, both twins are bonkers, fun-loving, flirtatious, stubborn and lest we forget both in the possession of a razor sharp wit. The books may describe them as identical right down to the last freckle, but this doesn't mean that they are one hundred percent identical in personality - no twins are. In fact, if Fred and George were the same they wouldn't make such a good team. Fred and George are a perfect double act and in any double act you

Harry Potter: The Snow QueenThere are many tales of the Winter Queen, but only one of them is true.Harry Potter: The Snow Queen6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
It is true when they say her hair is white as snow, her eyes dark as coals; her face pale as Death. It is true that she is as old as the mountains; that she has as many names as the stars have, and how a cloak of white rabbits falls over her shoulder.
It is also true what they speak of her serpent mirror, Ouroboros, the never-ending silver chain. Mirrors never lie, but neither can they be trusted, for mirrors are the trickiest of all magical objects. There are children in Her mirror; those who strayed too far from the forest path and found the white haired Queen with her empty eyes sitting lonely beside the glass; those who stepped through the mirror chasing dreams and flickering lights, dancing all the way. And behind the glass they remain, their hearts and names, and souls stolen away in a jar for the Winter Queen and her mirror to consume, for that is how she survives the tick-tick-ticking of the clock, for a

Incantations and Deductions SHObviously it took years for them to ever get around to speaking to each other. Sherlock reasoned that it was natural: as well as being in different, some might even say rival, houses, there was also the social class divide and the fact that Sherlock always gave off the general air of someone who never wanted to talk to anyone, in his life, ever. As a general rule Sherlock felt that unless someone was directly benefitting him by being alive in his presence he would do his best to tolerate them, but if not they could bloody well bugger off and do their dull living /breathing /sleeping /eating /talking /having fun business somewhere else.Incantations and Deductions SH4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

This particular ball gave way to spiky tips and deep depressions. She held it up and blew on it to speed its drying. When it was ready, she brought out the paints. The low parts became blue and fluid, and the spiky places turned gray. But she didn't stop there. The in between places were painted green and brown, and she came away a little and painted white puffy shapes. And then she waited.
For a long time, nothing happened. Then there was movement, but still she was disappointed. This one didn't glow the way some of her creations did. She moved in for a closer look at the globe. Perhaps she could figure out what had gone wrong.

Soon, the rain was pouring and people were disappearing. The gloomy, melancholy rain sucked away the color, painting a dreary gray scale portrait of loneliness. I walked alone in the streets, the rain still heavy on my skin. I was bereft of shelter and an umbrella. I put on my hood and looked down, shrugging off the heavy downpour.
Then she came along.
A technicolor sprite in my monochrome world, rekindling the life and light in her surroundings with a brilliant spark. We sang together despite the rain. She hadn't a care in the world and she was so vibrant. Her gaze gave me warmth, she empowered me.
Unfortunately, she had to leave. She had to return to a place unreachable, to a place in the skies, to her own kaleidoscopic realm, leaving me once again alone in this pastel world, where the colors will never be as bright as when she was with me.

It seemed like he was in a hall of some sort it was about the same size as the Great Hall and almost completely made out of stone with a large window at the far end. The large stone ceiling was held up by massive stone pillars which had various symbols on them, Albus had no clue what they meant he didn't take ancient runes. Albus stared around in confusion but his eyes were drawn to two figures stand a few feet apart about ten yards away from him.

Copper fought off another wave of nausea as she watched the digital image of the mercenary fighter flip end over end, and disappear from the electronic gun sight. She'd never fired at a target in space before, and found out instantly it was a whole different ball game with more velocity and a myriad of attack angles not found when engaging targets planet-side. It didn't help that the weapon she was using was a dorsal mount 2 13/50, with a slow tracking director, that wasn't designed to do much more than look vaguely menacing. Still, she'd managed to score at least one solid hit on the little fighter, apparently causing enough damage to dampen the pilot's enthusiasm and send him retreating back to Marawayne.

We'd find a tree with branches wide enough with leaves broad or plentiful enough to take shelter under, and there, you'd place your head on my lap as I'd sing you my favorite love song. The song I'd always wanted you to sing to me.
If only I hadn't found out the hard way that your feelings for me are but as thin as an onion's skin and that I could never accept and bow down to no matter how suave your courting style may be. If only I was stupider than what I really am- maybe then I would have reciprocated to your efforts all my yearning I've kept sealed tightly, maybe then we might have had a chance.

Intro: Walking BlindA whisper in the breeze she was, breathing with the bodies of others, seeing through their eyes. With a silver thread of thought, the people she possessed complied to the command like a porcelain marionette. A silent, delicate, dangerous whisper. The world she walked upon was broken, decrepit under the stress of its own weight. It had shed a mask of smooth, blatantly useless happiness that had been plastered for so long upon a face, that was, in truth, shriveling with the degenerative state of humanity. And upon that world she wandered with a long desecrated heart beating the empty silence of night through her veins.Intro: Walking Blind5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
