It is time to find out who is a Bella Swan at heart and who is an Elena Gilbert. Both of these girls are totally beautiful, smart, cunning, and amazing but they are also very different in many ways.

Which of them seems like the more relatable gal According to Fandom, Bella Swan "was born to Charlie Swan and Renée Dwyer on September 13, 1987, and is the main protagonist of the Twilight Saga. In Twilight, she is a 17-year-old girl who transfers schools from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington to live with her father Charlie, where she meets and falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen.

According to Fandom, Elena Gilbert "was the former main female protagonist of The Vampire Diaries.

In the Season Three Finale, she became a vampire despite never wanting to be one." Both of these girls are incredibly cool-- but which one is more relatable?
Which quality is most important to possess?
Being considered empathetic is a beautiful thing because empathetic people are understanding and loving towards others. Being considered popular is also very cool because who would not want to be part of a tight-knit group of friends that are all very close to each other? Being considered shy is not so bad either, even though a lot of people would prefer to naturally be more outgoing! Being considered passionate is awesome too because a passionate person shows the person they love how they feel!
Pick a vampire color scheme:
Vampire colors are usually very dark and very mysterious looking. Black is typically a staple when it comes to vampire color schemes which is actually pretty cool because the color black goes with basically everything. It easily pairs well with any shade of red or any shade of blue. It also pairs well with greens and other dark colors that it is placed next to. When it comes to vampire color schemes, which of these color schemes sounds like a better pair?

Bestie or Frenemy: Jessica Stanley
Jessica Stanley is a sweet human character from the Twilight saga. She is played by Anna Kendrick who once said, "I guess as long as people think of me for different ages, I'll trust their opinion.

Date or Friendzone: Jacob Black
