NOBODY DECIDES MY FATE BUT ME
E.L. James knows as much about BDSM as she would have found in a five minute Google search, which is to say that she knows precisely jack shit.
50 Shades of Grey does not depict a realistic kinky relationship, nor does it depict a healthy relationship of either the…
NO. NO. I AM TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS OLD AND I AM CRYING BECAUSE I CAN STILL HEAR THE EXACT WAY SHADOW SAYS “PETER” AS HE COMES OUT OF THE FUCKING WOODS DON’T LOOK AT MEEEE
That brought back emotions I buried deep down
Literally about to cry from this damn gif set.
"For me, it’s been [about] developing her brightness, and her strengths but at the same time her vulnerability. I really get to have fun with her. It’s nice to play a strong woman [who] also just has this wonderful energy to her.”

"It was a brief flicker of light amidst an ocean of darkness"
Here’s some Bobby to help all us dearie’s through this trying time
I AM SO IN GIMME A MINUTE TO SMUGGLE MYSELF INTO CANADA
A satellite containing various DNA samples and an experiment on animal sexuality at Zero Gravity using geckos crash-lands somewhere in the US. Rumours abound as to what was found inside but it’s all hushed.
Some 30-something years later Dr Belle French, a renowned herpetologist (an expert on reptiles) gets a call from the NASA about a possible job opportunity, all highly classified. Wanting a change of scene and an escape from the bothering advances of Gaston March, the dean of the university in which she conducts her research, she takes the job, no questions asked. After all, with the money NASA is prepared to pay her she can afford to fund her research independently.
Though she theorizes a lot about what her job will be she in no way expects what she finds once she’s admitted inside the top-secret NASA facility in Maine: a man, or so he seems, with the scaly skin and the yellow eyes typical of reptiles. The man, named Rumple by his original caretaker, a Scottish astrobiologist, had been kept inside a lab ever since he’d been discovered on the wreckage of the fallen satellite, an odd product from the combination of a gecko foetus, human DNA and a lot of radioactivity (sci-fi science FTW!).
Over the years Rumple had been the subject of many experiments, mostly led by Dr. Zoso, a Soviet defector recruited by NASA. His only other constant companions had been two assistants who’d taken the task of raising him up, educating him and keeping him company. Since Zoso and the women had died, however, Rumple had been all but forgotten.
Later, however, he’d begun to exhibit violent and hyperactive behaviour, as well as change in hormone and temperature levels and some puzzling habits. Fearing for his health- Rumple being still invaluable research material- the head of the Maine research facility, Stella Blue, had reluctantly allowed for an outsider to be called to explain and treat Rumple’s behaviour as well as becoming his new caretaker.
Cue ever-growing intimacy, strangle-lizard-like mating behaviour and some really strange UST.
DAMN IT, STRAGGLE, YOU BETTER WRITE THE THING NOW
