Snake: Yes, I do believe we are. Need to find a .pdf of the second book though. I'm excited!

Nil: It should be good to join next week? We usually start at around 4 pm MST, or 6 pm EST.

This is like Inception of bad writing: We should be more outraged someone is writing 50 Shades fanfic as an original novel.

The glut of erotic novels cluttering up the bookstore has already begun. They've even re-released Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty trilogy, which I've never read but understand is decidely . . . adult.

It also doesn't recognize the limits of anatomy, and is about equally poor in writing.

Yahtzee (he of Zero Punctuation fame) wrote a pretty snarky and hilarious review of that... Enjoy!

edit for samplequote:

Quote :
MONOLOGUE OF A PERSON WHO HAS HAD A SENSIBLE UPBRINGING INVITED TO THE QUEEN'S PALACE

"Boy, thanks for inviting me to your palace, your majesty! Your piss-ups have earned quite a reputation as - oh, thank you, I would like some wine! So as I was saying, I... whoa. Ha ha. You know, I must be jetlagged or something, I could have sworn that serving boy was completely stark bollock naked! Anyway, I would - oh my fucking god, he was! They're all stark bollock naked! Do you guys have a trouser shortage or something? Fuck, you could have said so! We've got tonnes of trousers at our palace you can have if you'd just ask - entertainment? what sort of entertainment? Oh shit, what is that man doi - AGH! FOR FUCK'S SAKE I'M TRYING TO EAT HERE! I don't want to see that! Please, for the love of all that is holy just pull that thing out of his - NO DON'T MAKE HIM DANCE - oh Jesus I'm going to throw up. Summon the troops. This palace BURNS TONIGHT."

The end.

I can't wait!

I even have the new name for your recordings (though maybe not the channel): 50 Snarks Darker.

I'll be sure to be up and around at 3 MST, but I know we usually start at 4 MST. I'm just REALLY REALLY excited for this next book. Which is sort of sad.

Oooh. I like the new title for the recordings. I shall definitely use it!

I know what you mean about being excited. I think the second book is even worse than the first. It's really making me think what the third one is going to be like.

For those that missed it, The Situgreytion is now a thing. Shoot me your email if you want to contribute directly. You can also submit to it the regular way.

I feel a little dirty using the word 'submit' in any paragraph involving Christian Grey. Ugh. D: I did it again.

Does anyone remember where the hell the whole Situation/Grey thing even came from?

Because Christian had to deal with a "situation" back in the first book, which is why he had to leave Georgia suddenly.

Also, permission denied. I cannot see it, raerae.

It was a good read and made many good points, but do I really want to know what you were doing on a right wing assface's website in the first place? scratch

It means that now I'm going to cringe even more each time she bites her lip, that being a gesture most commonly associated with children.

The first 50 Shades book is coming out here tomorrow and everyone is making a lot of noise about it. I can't believe people are actually excited about this crap.

I genuinely feel bad for whoever translated that garbage.
