I sent this paper to JK Rowling explaining how the wizarding gene could be singular, autosomal, and dominant despite the protests of a bunch of fans who stopped learning genetics after Punnett squares in 4th grade. Warning: contains science and is not approved for Creationists.
does anyone else have that one fictional character that they’re just so emotionally attached to that someone saying anything remotely negative about them feels like a personal attack on you but you never say anything about it or ask them to stop because people can hate whoever the fuck they want and you’re fully aware of how stupid it is to get offended over a fictional character anyways???
When I first heard about Fifty Shades of Grey, for some odd reason, the name really stuck with me. It sounded full of promises, and I felt excited about reading a new book. Even though it’s a groomed version of a fan fiction of *grimace* Twilight, I thought I’d give it a go. And I did. I finished the entire trilogy in five days.
When a book title is claimed to be holding the #1 place in New York Best Seller list, you’d think it has something. Unfortunately, other than the curious world of BDSM, the trilogy lacks originality. Even I was a little disappointed, and I’m a hopeless romantic, and I read absolutely anything, even trash paper (ask my mum if you don’t believe me - it’s a childhood trait that stuck). Anyone who has read the Twilight Saga will see how obvious the similarity between the two series is. I know it stemmed from a Twilight fan fiction, but really, if you want to publish your work, wouldn’t you rather it was something that didn’t remind of someone else’s work?
What made me even more sad was that the plot really has room to grow. Given the proper direction and guidance that can only come from a talented writer, the story could’ve been brilliant. Such a waste, really.
I heard they’re going to make a movie on the first book. I hope, for the very first time, that they don’t stick to the book. I hope they develop the story into something better, because, frankly, there are a lot of scopes to do that.
