Please bear in mind, given the number of Twilight comparisons, the point that justintyme brought up earlier: the 50 Shades series started as fanfic of Twilight, before the author realized that if she changed enough of the details, she could sell it as original work. The rest is history.

(Those of us who write fanfic for... other things... are often tempted to yell "YOU'RE NOT HELPING!" at the whole thing.)


Can you elaborate a little? I think what you wrote is interesting, but I don't think I u derstand what you said or meant.

A little expansion would help. Thanks.


So once upon a time there was a tale called Master of the Universe, set using the characters of Twilight in an alternate universe setting. At some point, the writer decided that things had gotten different enough that she could change the names and any other details that were specific to the Twilight Saga, then e-published. And then it exploded. Unfortunately, not literally. This article has excerpts. They are as terrible as you can imagine.

In other words, this is a terrible derivative work of a series that was a hot mess in the first place. And my understanding of the movies is that they're a badly acted adaptation of a terrible derivative work of a terrible series.
