    That's it. I've fucking had it with the media hype over these abysmally written books!! Y'all can start writing erotic pulp fiction in the hopes of becoming multi-millionaires off of repressed fools who haven't read enough smutty fanfics online to know eroticism shouldn't have to be so. Badly. Written. But all your efforts would be in vain; I'm now going to study physics with unequalled fervour, build a god-damned time machine and travel back to when Meyer first got the idea to destroy vampire mythology with her 100 year old vampires who go to high school whenever they can and enjoy getting out in the middle of the day to play baseball. And give the bitch an incentive to pursue a career in basket weaving.

    How long until this Twihard/sado-masochist hype dies down and the next media-fuelled trend comes along?

    There is a few epubs dedicated to publishing Twific. They have an inbuilt fanbase which helps to market the books. But I suspect there will be more.

    Here is an interesting fanwankery behind 50 Shades being published www.gentleblaze.livejournal.com

    My greatest fear is that the next trend will be even worse, and I'm afraid to see what could be worse than 50 Shades.
    Get it together Us weekly. And that statement by “Kristen” um obviously wasn’t her. any fan, stan, stalker, kstew role player can tell right away that isn’t her. - a Twihard

    Ok, must we prepare ourselves for some Robsten fanfictions to be published as well?

    Well if you read any badly written S&M books where the heroine is a 3' 6" orange dwarf you'll at least know where it originally came from.


    ETA: Things are getting worse! Someone has started a Twilight/Jersey Shore cross-over fiction!

    Don't forget Snooki wrote a book and a friend of mine couldn't even finish it - it was worse than Modeland.

    And not a one of them is any good. I tried to read the first. It was painful. In fact it was worse than Twilight and I didnt believe that was possible.

    Not gonna lie I read Fifty Shades trilogy twice. It's horribly written but I did like it. I also haven't read a book since my book club over a year ago.
