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

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
