Oh. Oh no. No no, my dear. We don’t even have time to get into its deplorable depiction of sexuality because WE’RE STILL TRYING TO RECOVER FROM THE WRITING. MY GOD. THE WRITING.
the cut and pasting you mean? I think the second - or third most offensive thing about this is that you can basically find the fanfic that it was on the internet and very little has changed from the fic to the published novel. And that you can get smut (BETTER WRITTEN SMUT, MIND YOU) for free. So not only is this is shit, it is shit that has been paid for.

What is this leather jacket realness?? I almost thought this was one of his old modelsuk photoshoots!!
OH MY GOD
Yes you could be sad about your pairings but:
- Inappropriately timed confessions
- At a ski lodge and somehow got stuck outside in the middle of the storm but hey look there’s a conveniently abandoned cabin I guess the logical thing to do is go in there and snuggle for warmth for…
why have an otp when you can impale yourself on a fence and feel exactly the same way
If you love someone, set them free. If they don’t come back, text them when you’re drunk.
PSA: Fifty shades of grey is a terrible, pedestrian, misogynistic, flawed look into desire and says nothing valid or helpful about women’s sexuality. There are definitely better books about alternative sexualities and lifestyles, and there are better fanfic turned into shameless ploys for cash mainstream novels, I’m sure of it.
ALSO. Not every hot guy in a suit is Christian Grey. Get back into the dungeon of bullshit first draft characterization from whence you came.
I can’t engage with someone seriously if they think the words ‘basic,’ ‘peasant,’ are the height of insults. Peasants toiled the land and built the infrastructure. Without peasants you’d have a bunch of rich bored people coming up with new ways to convert heathens, fuck their sisters, or monetizing the church. I know a bit too glib but I’m over it.
Right? The whole thing is upsetting but I really think an example needs to be made. It doesn’t matter *who* you are it is Not Okay to abuse.
This goes hand in hand with the other scandal that’s blowing up now involving Lee Byung Hun - the women involved get taken away in handcuffs, and their careers are most assuredly over, while KHJ gets to finish up a freaking world tour, gently interrogated, and have his agency protect him (horrendously) from everything. One’s a cheater, one’s a beater, but only the women involved in the cases are being punished. It’s just ugh.
