"My one good eye saw her strolling warily through the alley, oblivious to my manly odor. She was on my territory now! Blood boiling I leaped with a screech and with reckless abandon caught her back with my front claws and sank my teeth into her long neck until she was pinned to the ground in fear, and then I began to have my way with her. Only then did I discover that 'she' was literally a Tomcat. Didn't matter."

How'd you get from sparkly vampires to S&M?


The whole of vampire lore is one Domination and submission story after another. :?



That combined with the fact that fan-fiction can often go, uh, off on a tangent...

50 Sheds of Grey

'Meet me in the shed in half an hour wearing only your wellingtons.' I sighed and put the phone down. I hated these late-night booty calls.



50 Sheds of Grey‏

'Now,' she said, 'I'll take you by the collar & lead you naked round the garden.' I was shocked. The poor vicar had only come round for tea.

Shinji's Vault Of Anime Mistings.

A Misting is the fanfiction version of the mystery science theater 3000 tv show. people taking the most horrid, or shocking, or just plain unintentionally funny pieces of fanfiction that could be found and riffing on them in the style of the show. and SVAM used to be central hub for the community while it was still around.

so yeah, i've read things, horrible things that i can never forget. but at least they were funny :D

that could explain why i don't read fanfics much anymore.

Fifty Sheds of Grey ‏

'I'm a very naughty girl,' she said, biting her lip, 'I need to be punished.' So I invited my mother to stay for the weekend.
