    Default Fuck! This book is melting my brain with its terrible-ness...

    My friend is making me read Fifty Shades of Grey and its awful.

    And yes, I realize I can't truly be *forced* to read anything, but as I've read the Twilight series, I thought I could make it through. Now, I'm not so sure...At first, it was hilarious that she kept referring to her vagina as"'down there", but even that has lost its humor.

    I'll take Dragonriders of Pern over this crap any day.

    It is literally adapted from Twilight fan fiction.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    Right, I don't know much about this book, but I did hear that the author is a huge Twilight fan and that this book is literally supposed to be Twilight for adults.

    The lost history of FSOG.

    Online authors should never forget that readers can travel backwards in Internet time and explore their earlier work. Author E L James scored a seven-figure book deal to publish the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and a movie deal quickly followed.

    This erotica bestseller began as a work of Twilight fan fiction called Master of the Universe, earning a massive fan fiction following years before the book deal. Most traces of this fan fiction history have been removed from the Internet. Using the Wayback Machine, we were able to take snapshots from James’ old work–getting a peek into the book’s previous incarnation as an X-rated version of the Twilight story.

    UPDATE: Since we first published this story, the Wayback Machine has stopped indexing the archives referenced in the screen-shots below. The site now posts this message: “Sorry. This URL has been excluded from the Wayback Machine.”
    James’ agent told Deadline Hollywood: “This did start as Twilight fan fiction, inspired by Stephenie Meyer’s wonderful series of books. Originally it was written as fan fiction, then Erika decided to take it down after there were some comments about the racy nature of the material. She took it down and thought, I’d always wanted to write. I’ve got a couple unpublished novels here. I will rewrite this thing, and create these iconic characters, Christian and Anna.”

    James career began on FanFiction.net, but she moved the work to her personal website, 50Shades.com. Now the site automatically redirects to her author page for straight erotica, but we found old snapshots of this work with the Wayback Machine. Follow the links below to explore…
    In a related story, I refuse to read FSOG.
    "I'm sorry
    For all the things that I never did
    For all the places I never was
    For all the people I never stopped
    But there was nothing I could do...

    Fan fiction is weird.

    I completely stopped anything related to it when I stumbled upon a fanction where Alex Krycek and Skinner were having a baby together... the natural way.
    And they were all in love and everything which is even more unatural for these characters than guys being pregnant.

    Freaked me out greatly. And I watched ALL the X-Files, so I wasn't easily freaked out.

    What is really depressing, is that this friend refuses to believe me when I tell her that it was written to be Twilight + Sex.

    I like how most fan fiction is basically just pornographic fantasy involving beloved characters. It says a lot about human nature.
    Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks

    I remember reading Bulma and Vegeta fan fiction when I was in grade school. It was about how Trunks was conceived.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    Well, I think the real question is how the daughter of Krillin and C18 was conceived...
