Best Answer

The Twilight novel was published in 2005 and The Vampire Diaries first novel, The Awakening, was published in 1999, so The Vampire Diaries novels came before Twilight. But, Twilight, the movie, premiered in 2008 and The Vampire Diaries television series premiered in 2009. So technically, The Vampire Diaries novels came before Twilight novels, but Twilight beat The Vampire Diaries to the punch with a film first.

It's not uncommon for two works in the same genre to have similarities, especially when dealing with popular themes like vampires and romance. While some may feel one story copied the other, both "Vampire Diaries" and "Twilight" have their own unique elements and have resonated with different audiences. It's possible for multiple works to explore similar ideas while still offering fresh perspectives.

When the directors make season 2 of the vampire diaries does that mean lj smith will be making season 2 in the book's vampire diarie's?

If you have read the books, Season 1 of the Vampire Diaries surrounds the ending of the first book (the combined version, not the separate books as they were when they first came out in the 1990s). So no, it's probably going to keep on surrounding the books (there are now 4 books).
