No, he was still Mr. Darcy

He was Mr. Rhoades in name only until he freed Bosco. Until then he was still Mr. Darcy.

FrancoFile: OK, stop for a second.

How is 50 Shades of Gray "fan fiction" when there are no sparkly vampires? There is no connection whatsoever between the characters and setting of Twilight and those of 50 Shades. So why do people call it fanfic?


It was originally posted online as Twilight fanfic with the pen name Snowqueens Icedragon. It was only when the author decided to sell it that she stripped all the recognizable Twilight elements out.

No. No no no no no No No No No NONONONONONONO NO!!

Austen and Bronte's works are perfect the way they are; the way they are MEANT to be! If these ladies were alive today (I'm not saying they wouldn't enjoy the steaminess) they'd cringe at their hard-wrought labors of love to have been twisted so!

Basically all we're doing here is publishing fan fiction. Can we just call it what it is?

And if we're going to go this lusty route, how about some pornographic film with scenes or whole plots that can be either continuations of the relationships of these authors' works, or just lustified versions of the original works? I'd TOTALLY pay for that. And have my man enjoy it with me, cuz you can't do that with a book!

The My Little Pony Killer: all the Jane Austin parts were boring as shiat too


I'm convinced that owning pair of testicles ruins any chance of enjoying a Jane Austin novel

/there is a shiat ton of erotica and fan fiction based on Pride and Prejudice

SoxSweepAgain: I have GOT to read this "Fifty Shades of Grey".

/Relevant to my interests.


No it's crap. I went to the beach and a bunch of my friends read parts out loud, it was horrible and hillarious at the same time.

Listen to Tom Hiddleston read The Red Necklace. The part where he states "I will be the first to kiss you, to bed you...". Will have you set. Look on YouTube I suck at linking.

The author began her novel AS a Twilight fan fic, THAT'S why. She just changed and morphed it over the time she wrote it, made it her own. I think there may even be pre-publicized versions of it on a fanfic site somewhere.

I'd link you where I read this, but fark if I can remember.

For the record I loathe Twilight and I don't follow popular literature unless it's Game of Thrones, which I just finished and started A Clash of Kings! Now if only Steven Moffat wrote novels!

had98c: imgod2u: ProfessorOhki: Martstar: Everyone's focusing on the Austen and Bronte stuff, but nobody's picking up on the Holmes/Watson affair thing? Not that there's anything wrong with that, but do we really need to be doing this to the classics? If so, why stop there?

I'm sure we can come up with some other ways to sex up the classics. What were Huck and Jim up to on that raft? They were naked the whole time. How about Moby Dick? Hallelujah, it's raining men, on a BOAT! Personally I'd like more info on how Hester got that scarlet letter, if you know what I mean.

Why not go even more classical?
But when the wine had knocked him out, I put my plan into effect. Heating the end of the pole until it was glowing red, we ran it toward the Cyclops like a battering ram, aiming it for his eye and driving it deep.

As Gilgamesh and Enkidu rolled through the ground struggling and grappling each other's arms, their hearts throbbed with blood and rage, that rage....turned to passion.

It is a little known fact that Jane Austen was an immensely popular pornographer, at least in early editions of her work. Her fans included the Prince of Wales ("Your Fat Friend") and Lord Byron ("Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know"). First editions of Jane Austen novels were cheaply bound and sold in plain brown paper wrappers, which means that they are worth upwards of $60,000 each today.

Unfortunately, Jane Austin's publisher, William Godwin, was a bit of prude (despite, or because of, his daughter, Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley, being a famous feminist and England's Foremost F*g H*g) so he cut all of the naughty bits out and replaced them with inane simpering dialogue. There was nothing that Jane Austen could do seeing as she spelled very badly and nobody could read her hand writing except her sister Jane and William Godwin. So she pounded the living daylights out of her publisher in fine literary style and sold all of her pornography under a pseudonym*, thus leaving the world only six novels and bits and pieces.

As someone who has read an embarrassing amount of Jane Austen fanfic, there are already plenty of steamy versions, from adaptation to alternate storyline to sequel. This is nothing new.

Also, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was awful. It didn't even work as a zombie story. There were so many flaws, I won't bother to enumerate them. It was just silly, so if that's what you're reading it for, you're all set, but I was hoping it would actually be a good adaptation.

I would too if it was wrote by Joyce. I don't read erotica but his sexual obsession with farts would make for some hilarious sex scenes.

Trillian Astra: FrancoFile: How is 50 Shades of Gray "fan fiction" when there are no sparkly vampires? There is no connection whatsoever between the characters and setting of Twilight and those of 50 Shades. So why do people call it fanfic?

Because the author said it started as Twilight fan fiction. Then she changed the main character from being a sparkly vampire to just being really ridiculously rich, changed some names (Edward became Christian, Bella became Anastasia, Jacob became Jose) and ta-da! it became published.


Sigh.

Dumb, plagiarizing, and fat is no way to go through life, lady.

You'd be surprised how many classics of some stripe or another have already been done. There's an author who goes by the florid pseudonym of Amarantha Knight, whose particular specialty is revamping classic horror stories as heavy-BDSM kinkfests, well predating the current trend. I have a copy of her version of Frankenstein that I picked up many years ago for something to read on a long flight... good lord, some of what goes on in there would even make 4chan cringe.

I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice; and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. However, the best thing to do is to play the Wuthering Heights roleplaying game. I have never seen so many towns burned, people murdered, or plots foiled in a dungeons and dragons game as I have in Wuthering Heights. The only problem with it is that you can't run a campaign because half of the PCs are dead by the end of the first session. It might be a consequence of the players I got, but we all had fun.

Well, here comes my novel:

50 Shades of Full House.

"Uncle Joey walks into our room. Stephanie and myself are chained up against the wall. PVC Piping is used to hold our legs apart. His favorite thing to do was spend ten minutes doing a comedy routine where he would do impressions of cartoon characters that no one cared about any more. I would rather have my nipples sliced off than hear any more of this.

He turned to me, "Michelle." he starts, "I heard you got into trouble today in class." Damn that kindergarten teacher, ratting me out..."

If only RAW was still here.

Speaking of Robert Anton Wilson I was trying to recall a mention in one of his books about a treatise or whatever that was written by an early French feminist that concerned gender equality based on the fact that males have penises.

Google hasn't helped, anyone? This is Fark c'mon. :D

It's called "Master of the Universe" and it was written by Snowqueens Icedragon. And yes, "50 Shades Of Grey" started out as "Twilight" fan fiction.

That does not bode well for humanity's future.

50 Shades of Grey shared the best-selling fiction list with James Patterson so it's not like any of these terrible "... and zombie robot ninjas" or dumb masturbation material really was stopping the next To Kill A Mockingbird from being noticed.
