Firstly i can't really say i hate harry potter, but is this how rude i will turn out to be?, it's just that i read it from the third book and didn't read a lot just got bored threw it away, (mind you, i did the same with Da Vinci code, and then after some while when i read it, i loved it, i seriously have a weird when i choose things) but twilight's main thing attracting me wasn't entirely Edward's beauty, Edward was depressed who thought nothing of humans and played awesome music (I like Beethoven and Mozart) and didn't cut himself, but it wasn't Edward i was jumping up and down about, it was the Volturi, i like vampire villains, and Aro's enthusiasm is so funny, i can't believe people regarding him as the leader, but frankly i didn't think the term 'forbidden love' was in twilight, it wasn't so forbidden that the police were after them and the vampire 'police' the Volturi let bella off the hook, jee i would like a few blood spill, ironically with vampires there, i wonder if vampires could become cannibals, anyway i didn't really give it much a thought why i liked twilight, but i learned a lot from twilight, like an exceeding vocabulary, i had a bad, bad vocabulary, and i guess maybe something about vampires, but their love was in nothing 'forbidden' and yes bella even after her transformation couldn't do anything but marvel at Edward (like she's got nothing to do), but i love the Volturi scene in new moon, i would like it more if Stephenie Meyer stretched more into the other vampire world, how Charlisle stay was at the Volturi, and how did the Volturi raise to power, that sort of stuff, i guess i should read Harry potter again. maybe it will turn out something good like how Da Vinci code has ended up.
it was a point of time when i couldn't think of anything but twilight, but when i finished breaking dawn, i just thought it over.. Twilight is defiantly overrated.
I'll get back on the potter business later.
No you don't, because we do not hate "Twilighters (or whatever you call the normal non- violent fans", we hate Twihards, and there's a difference. Twilighters are normal fans who like the series but don't become violent towards people who don't (am happy to say that most if not all people in this forum are Twilighters, hope it stays this way), but Twihards are those who take drastic actions against those who say something against Twilight (like the stories you read in the first post of this topic).
Just because someone is a Twilighter doesn't mean he/she isn't a HPian (a better sounding name than Potterhead), and vice versa. Just became a HPian doesn't like Twilight doesn't give you the right to hate HP, which is a totally different book from Twilight to like or dislike it without reading.
You said you started from the 3rd HP book, which isn't really a good place to start. It's like someone started the Twilight series on New Moon and didn't read the rest because they didn't like it. Start from the 1st one and read all 7 before giving a judgment on HP, same for those who haven't read Twilight. Read all 4 before giving a judgment on the series, you'll be surprised to see how different (if so) your opinions may be.
If I only read the 3rd book of HP, I probably wouldn't think much of it either (though the 3rd book is my fav out of the series (after Deathly Hallows), mind you), because the real substance of the series begins from the 4th book where it gets darker and more evil enters the storyline. The first three Harry Potter books basically initiate you into the magical world of Harry and his friends, and characters who will later become beloved to you are introduced in the first three books. The plot itself, though seeming to be unimportant, leads up to a lot of important events later on in the series, especially in Deathly Hallows. I mean, who would have thought that the Riddle Diary in Chamber of Secrets would turn out to be a Horcrux in the 6th book?
So to truly learn to appreciate HP and love it, you must read all 7 books in order. I think that's true for any series actually. Without knowing the whole story, it's not fair to come up with a judgment.
