The Twilight Saga vs. The Vampire Diaries: Part II

by at . Comments

Welcome to the second part of our investigative series into similarities and differences between the Twilight Saga and The Vampire Diaries.

Almost all readers are familiar with the former, of course, as Robert Pattinson and company have become an international sensation.

But what to make of the latter? Fans have been wondering if the upcoming CW drama is merely a rip-off of the Twilight franchise. As mentioned in yesterday's analysis of Edward Cullen vs. Stefan Salavtore, that answer is no; The Vampire Diaries novels were actually published long before Twilight.

  • Twilight Saga
  • Vampire Diaries Book

Now, it's on to part two of this special inside look: Jacob Black vs. Damon Salvatore!

SIMILARITIES:

  • Both have dark hair and dark features; are fiercely loyal; are considered the third point of an unusual love triangle; possess a unique family history.
As Damon

DIFFERENCES:

  • Jacob is a werewolf, Damon is a vampire; Jacob is a different species than his rival Edward, Damon is the brother of his rival Stefan; Jacob has a long mane, Damon has short hair.

Coming tomorrow: Part III - Bella Swan vs. Elena Gilbert!

so what if VD is written before Twilight, that doesn't classify it as a better book. In my opinion, Twilight is a better book than VD

No-twilight-go-the-vampire-diaries

A. .. Not really. And behold here comes my problem with English. I only realized that 1 movie Twilight is equal on three episodes of the vampire diaries. And that the blows did not understand the idea. Sorry.

(re: luvers) Actually, this series is still being written. The most recent one was published in 2001, which in retrospect was not that long ago. Harper, in 2007 re-published the four original books and that’s probably why the series was able to re-vamp. (re: WTFpeople?) Very much agreed- well put. There should be no competition though. Can't Twilight and VD coincide together and just complement each other? If anything VD is just trying to add a different view point to the vampire mythology… not offend anyone. In fact, in an interview, Kevin Williamson said that he loved the Twilight and True Blood projects.

Not every Vampire related thing is a rip off of Twilight. Get over yourselves, Twi-Tards.
