I know 50 Shades isn't fanfiction anymore, but I'm hoping the mods allow me to post this here.
50 Shades is now the "it" book, and everyone is talking about it. I've had several people ask if I've read it, and I usually say that, yeah, I've read it a while ago, and kind of leave it at that. My immediate family knows that I'm twilight obsessed, but I don't usually broadcast it. I'm curious as to what you guys tell people when asked about the book. I've envisioned my conversations going like this:
"Have you read that book 50 Shades?"
"Oh, I read it a while ago. It used to be a fanfiction story"
"Yeah, see, people that really like Twilight, or other stories, they read fanfiction. It's stories written about the characters by fans."
"Have you read 50 shades? Wow, its really racy."
"Yeah, It's a good book, I read it a while ago"
"When did you read it?"
"I actually read it online as Twilight fanfiction before it was published. If you think that's racy, you should read some of the other stories out there. They make 50 Shades look tame"
