Recient Top Successful Works from Fan-fic

1.) 50 Shades of Grey


2.) Gabriel’s Inferno

How are Twilight and Shades of Grey similar? Oh, let me count the obvious ways:


I.)   Plot

  1.  Preditor vs prey
  2. The love tringle
  3. Obsession with food
  4. “Shocking” first touch
  5. Stalker & Stalkee: Like Edward and Bella, Mr. Grey always knows where Ana is, appears unexpectedly to “save her,” then guards her throughout the night without sexually touching her, because like Edward, he doesn’t like to be touched.  This closeness in proximity but not physicality establishes a bond between them and sets the stage for their relationship.
  6. Bella/Ana is isolated from her family and friends by Edward’s/Grey’s secet dangerously demented life.

Tomorrow in Part III,  I will cover differences and similarities between the main characters of Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight Saga.
