I'm off Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Any of those days are good for me. Smile

I hope you feel better. And listening can be just as fun.

Ahaha! Good to know I'm not the only one doing livereadings of this shit over Skype. My group's gotten through the third chapter so far. We can only do one chapter at a time because the fuckery is so dense and my voice starts giving out near the end, but it's still great fun.

Also, I have PDF files of the entire trilogy if anyone's interested in using them for *ahem* research purposes.

I want to sit in on these readings.

They sound like a blast, and one hell of a good time.

Unlike the story.....

Sure, I'll take you up on that offer. It's not like I'm doing anything that will benefit anyone anyway.

How would 4pm Central work for everyone? I figure that would make it early enough at night that it's not terribad for those of you across the pond (about 10pm?).

Or maybe 3 or 4pm Central on Saturday?

Eh, I poke in and out. Kinda like a penis.

Seriously, though, I keep promising to spork something and then I never do it. I've been wasting all of my time on Tumblr.


ANYWAY. PDF FILES OF THE ENTIRE TRILOGY FOR YOU READING PLEASURE:

Removing due to the three rules we have. Do not link to any illegal content. It's great it you want to share it but not here. Please go over the Rules and Guidelines. First offense is a three day suspension, and the second is a permanent ban.

HAVE AT IT.

The drinking game(s)*:

- each time Christian displays behaviors characteristic of abusers
- each time someone unintentionally behaves logically
- drink for inconsistent characterization (but only once per page or per character so you don't die)
- each time her subconscious / inner goddess is anthropomorphisized.
- each time Grey does something w/o obvious ulterior motives
- each time Ana is dismissive toward Kate
- each time there is a lesbian overtone between Kate/Ana, the only people who have ANY chemistry
- each time there is an inappropriate British-ism (we call them a fucking tank top in the US, not a singlet. A singlet is this)
- each time there is a Batman reference
- each time there is child imagery re: Ana
- BDSM references outside of nookie scenes


HARDCORE RULES (pick one or risk death):
- each time she flushes
- each time someone scowls
- each time someone murmurs
- each time it mentions his ~beautimous funk~

*will be edited as necessary

What I wonder is, why is this so popular if pretty much everyone agrees it's terrible? Twilight had its ardent supporters, but I'm not seeing that with this. It seems to be a trend that the worse something is, the more attention it gets (e.g. "Friday"). Meanwhile, genuinely talented authors get their stories rejected by publishing houses!

I was trying to avoid this, but I suppose I'll at least have to read the snark.

EDIT: Okay, now I'm partly through it, and I'm honestly trying to figure out whether I could have written something better than this. And I'm not the best writer, but I still think I could have. I actually wrote a fanfic about a similar situation, and I really tried to emphasize that the dominant partner's abusive tendencies were neither okay nor romantic.

For some extra fun read the Heroine (HA!) as totally panicked all the time, makes it so much more phone.

I second this! Somath's reading of 50 Shades made our night!

BTW... I got booze for when ever we continue this travesty.

I couldn't even finish reading the snark...even with the extra commentary, I found it to be unsettling and upsetting.

Stop jamming penis down your throat and you won't have that problem any longer. Colbert

Let's start working out which days would be best for people who want to attend.

Who all is available on Thursday? How about Friday? Saturday? For myself, I'm available on all those days, and could start any time after 5pm central on Thursday, and at any time Friday or Saturday.

I have the weekend off
Holy shit I have no fucking idea what to do with myself halp
