That’s a wrap: ‘Master of the Universe’ FanFiction book club comes to an end (*TEARS*)

*Celebrating the one-year anniversary of "Master of the Universe" Fanfiction with a new *teaser trailer* for the story...can't wait for the full trailer by the uber talented video editor Biel.*


My stomach feels tight and knotted. My heart feels heavy, yet satiated. My face has a stupid grin that literally stretches from ear to ear. And my hormones are raging like a 13-year old boy…

Why you ask? How could I feel such a myriad of emotions all at once? Well simple. I just finished reading the most epic story that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading…none other than the glorious FanFiction story that I’ve been pimping on Twifans since it became our first (FanFiction) book club selection two weeks ago: “Master of the Universe” (MOTU). You've been reading along with me, haven't you?

So lately all my Twifans blogs have to do with MOTU. I totes know I should blog on other topics, but I've got a one-track Fifty mind at the moment. Tunnel vision fo sho. But so that you'll keep reading my posts, my only choice is to get you thoroughly hooked on this fanfic. I'm such a pusher when I wanna be. And soon I'll be all, Jeez Twifans, I'm ready to move on, can we talk about something else??

Anyway, when I chose MOTU as our first FF book club read, I had no idea how much it was going to take over my life. Truth be told, I was like a man in my intensions… all I wanted was to read about Edward Cullen having straight up porno sex with Bella Swan. *shrugs*

Sex, lust, love, romance

And believe me; this story has no shortage of that. But it doesn’t take long before you’re captured by the story. Yes, that’s right – the story. You’ll love this Bella and her glorious inner monologue, which becomes a secondary character in the fic. And then there’s Edward’s dark side, aka “Fifty Shades” that rears his oh so not-ugly head so much that it’s like a split personality. In describing to Bella why he is the way that he is, how he’s haunted by his past, he tells her that he’s “Fifty shades of f***** up.” And it’s here that the nickname “Fifty” or “Fifty Shades” is born. Although the persona is intended to describe Edward’s darker, less desirable side, Fifty becomes the most endearing character in the story. My, what Fifty can do! Hmmmm….

I won’t spoil it for any of the MOTU virgins out there, but let me just say that this fic has everything a girl could possibly want in a story. It has sex (LOTS OF IT), lust, angst, sadness, pure joy, humor, and utter romance. It’s puuuuurfect!

And as I mentioned in my MOTU podcast from last week, I’d LOVE to see this story move beyond FanFiction and become a published book and one day, a movie! It 100% has the capability to stand on its own as a genuinely rich story – and it would instantly become a bestseller! We’ll just change Edward’s name to Robert. J

Girl crushing on MOTU’s author

SO, I'm totally pestering the author of MOTU, Snowqueens Icedragon, to make an appearance on my next podcast! I just have to know what her inspiration was! Seriously, the more I read, the more I became in total awe of how she created these characters. How everything seemed to happen exactly the way I'd want it to happen...but yet, unexpected all at the same time! It's amazing. For someone like me who has a pie in the sky dream of writing a book and *becoming a bestselling author* someday, reading her story inspires me, just like Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” inspired me to become a blogger. BUUUUUT MOTU is way better than “Twilight”. There, I said it!

And as I mentioned in my previous two book club/MOTU posts, your significant others will thank you for reading this fic! (Remember, raging hornball?)

I’m really sad to have to let Fifty go and move onto our next FanFiction book club story (which I'll blog about soon!), but know that Fifty will be a reoccurring blog topic for me. Hey, I 'aint quittin' Fifty any time soon ya'llz!

Funny story…This past weekend my husband and I were at dinner and he decided to bring up the rather boring topic of life insurance, asking whether my rates went up. Being into finance, he rattled off what our current individual worth is, and I scowled when he said his head was worth more than mine. To pacify me, he quickly inserted, “That just means if you ever decide to kill me, you’ll have a lot of money.” I just looked at him – taking my opportunity to utter the now famous line…

“Jeff, that’s fifty shades of f***** up.”

Jeff raises one eyebrow, laughs and says; “What? Fifty shades of f***** up? That sounds like something I would say…”

And then I hug myself.


Put me out of my misery please, and READ MOTU if you have not. You gotta know what I know!!

And look, this story is so loved, people are writing original songs as a tribute to Fifty!!!

MOTU was the very first fanfic I ever read - what an introduction! This story had me so wrapped up I couldn't put it down! Waiting for the updates were almost painful - this is when I swore that I would not read a story unless it was complete. Snowqueen is an amazing writer.

I love that she is contunuing the story now as there was so much yet to come out with these two. Even though I am breaking my own rule above I again find myself hopeing everyday there is a notice of an update in my e-mail (even though she says when she will update again in her AN!).

I love reading fanfic because you can invision these two characters (Robert as Edward and Kristen as Bella) in the stories and that, to me, makes them more enjoyable,

That bein said doing a movie of MOTU would be tough as I have invisioned these two in the story for so long it would be hard to see anyone else act the parts.

Two other fanfics that I think rate right up at the top of the list with MOTU is "The Red Line" by winndsinger and "Closer' and it's sequal "California Waiting" by Team Bella 23.

A word of warinig tough - "The Red Line" is a very tough and heart wrenching read, with a great ending, but the subject matter may bother some. "Closer" and "California Waiting" has a wonderful plot line as well.

Still haven't found anything better than MOTU though!

I also have read two other great fan fiction stories:
Osa Bella, where the cullens are vampires like Twilight but it all happens when Bella is older, lots of angst, romance, suspense and sex!
and another called the Misaprehension of Bella Swan but im trying to find it again

SnowqueenIcedragon is an amazing writer! She has created characters who are so real, complex and complicated that you can't help but start caring about them. I've laughed, cried and swooned over this story--sometimes all within the same chapter! I just adore Fifty! The "inner goddess" get's me laughing every time she makes an appearance--I love her!

MotU was worth each and every late night I pulled for simpy being unable to put it down! If you haven't read it yet, do yourself a favor a read WILL NOT regret this decision! Wonderfully written and incredibly addictive! MotU has become the master of my fanfiction universe…and MotU II promises to be just as riveting!

I've been using "fifty shades of f***** up" too. That's normal. :]

The trailer looks soo good!
Love MOTU!!

@Becky - That pick is SO chapter 92/5 of MotU! I'm seriously starting to wonder if the photography director isn't a FanFic fanatic who's read MotU! Only thing is, I think MotU was a BB when this photo sesh too place! Anyway, the images match perfectly to the story!
