In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.
Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible.
But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.
Not convinced it’s abusive? This blog series http://jennytrout.wordpress.com/jenny-reads-50-shades-of-grey/ looks at the trilogy chapter by chapter, highlighting all the abuse and general asshattery.
When London-based singer and songwriter Matt Fishel was starting out, he received a lot of cringingly well-intentioned advice. Everyone wanted to mentor him, everyone wanted work with him — but with one pretty big caveat.
Fishel had to stop writing songs about men. Although he was already out, the industry wanted to push him back in. (Apparently being gay wasn’t “radio-friendly.”)
The singer refused and went on to launch his own label, Young Lust Records, so that he would have freedom over the projects — and the people — he pursued. In 2013, he wrote “Radio-Friendly Pop Song,” to document his experience with the industry. It’s ridiculously catchy.

I’ve got three novellas that I’ve never posted publicly for various reasons. They were written by me for me (and one as a gift for a family member) and I still wonder about ever making them public.

The White Queen Modern!AU:
(MIGHT) THE NEVILLES MAKE IT DOUBLE (?): Sure enough, the relationship between our royal family and the Nevilles has always been close (closer still, since the middle child George’s marriage to their eldest daughter Isabel), but our dear prince Richard definitely brings it on a new level, practically leaning half of his noble body weight on his freshly made sister in law. So much that it makes us wonder whether something happened between the duo - and whether the Nevilles are making it double. If so, they won’t be doing it under our nose.
