Fanfiction based "50 Shades" get its own fanfiction treatment

By now, EL James is a household name.  But does the name Snowqueens Icedragon sound familiar?  Icegragon is the author of a sexed up version of Twilight based online at Fanfiction.net  The names have changed but the story remains the same- minus the vampires.  50 Shades of Grey author, EL James,  got her start under the icy pen name, writing fan fiction based on Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels.   The concept of fan fiction is not new.  Anne Jamison, an English professor at the University of Utah who taught a unit on the "Twilight" fandom, says it stretches back at least to the early 1900s and the stories of Sherlock Holmes, said "There was fan fiction before you called it fan fiction," she said, "and before there was copyright it was called writing." Twilight fan fiction is the most popular on fanfitction.net with nearly 200,00 contributions.  Harry Potter fiction follows in second place and now, fan fiction for James’ wildly popular “kinky f*ckery” series comes (no pun intended) in third.   "I'm immensely flattered, and it's humbling to know my work is inspiring others to write," James said in a statement less than three months after "Fifty Shades" was published ...

Ian Somerhalder and Chris Pine are also topping the lists of fans of the steamy page turner. Who were you expecting, Robert Pattinson? Too pale. Too skinny. Too Edward. Sorry Twilighters, these characters need some fresh blood. Pine made intergalactic space travel sexy in the “Star Trek” reboot and after watching the "Vampire Diaries," Somerhalder's bite is hard to resist.            Ryan Gosling                                                                             Chris Pine Somerhalder told Ryan Seacrest he’s game:   We think Somerhalder has the right amount of carnal passion and darkness to pull off Christian.   As for the role of Ana. The fan site Fiftyshadesfilm.com took an informal Twitter poll, with Emmy Rossum and Alexis Bledel coming in the lead.       Emmy Rossum                                                                         Alexis Bledel   Bledel showed she’s got the nervous collegiate thing down on "Gilmore Girls."  But we’ve seen all of Rossum’s naughty bits on "Shameless" where’s she had ...
