No wonder there, Fifty Shades of Grey started off as a fanfic of Twilight, a BDSM short between Bella and Edward apparently. It baffles me how a fanfic of that level became an original story, let alone one that got so hyped.
I honestly can't see how anyone sees any appeal in Fifty Shades of Grey. It's not an accurate representation of S&M and the books are horribly written. I'm pretty sure I could have written something more compelling when I was in elementary school. XD
