The Vampire Diaries or The Twilight Saga: The Debate Continues

at . Comments

A new video has posed an old question:

Are you on Team Vampire Diaries or Team Twilight Saga?

The clip below analyzes an article from earlier this month in The New York Post. Written by Ari Karpel, it states that The Vampire Diaries is a much better example of vampire lore for a few reasons:

  • There's blood.
  • There's gore.
  • There's sex.
  • There's a fully developed heroine with an actual personality.

Sorry, Bella lovers. But it's hard to argue with the final point, isn't it?

Check out the video now and let the debate rage on...

Of course, we know what many vampire fans would say: forget these two examples entirely. Give me True Blood or give me death!

Where do you stand?

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.
