Brilliant Women of FanFiction


Alright, I know that for many of you the notion of brilliant women and fan fiction is an oxymoron.  Believe me, when I first entered this realm of fan fiction, I assumed that I was perhaps going into deep dark unknown to mix with a bunch of crazies.  In fact, I was warned not to do it.  I can’t begin to tell you how wrong that assumption was.

Okay, I know you think I write porn.  That what I am pushing here is porn.  And I will admit there is a lot of porn writing in fan fiction but we don’t all write porn.  In fact, most of us would argue that erotic fiction is not porn. The joy of writing fanfic is that we get to push boundaries but it still isn’t porn. Even if you’re a man reading women’s fan fic to get ideas on seduction it isn’t porn – then it’s just research.

So I am going to introduce a few of my friends from FSOG FanFiction facebook land.  We may not all be high-flyers or brilliant writers or even aspiring authors.   Although, there are some ladies on this list who are published in their own right and the rest probably should be. The facebook group (now 200+ members strong) is almost a year old and we’ve become good friends over that time (if you love FSOG, have a ff.net id and would like to join us then let me know, I’m in the dubious position of being an admin).  Our members come from all walks of life and many of us are highly educated, qualified professionals in our real life careers.  Some are writers, some are readers.  Some had never heard of fanfic before they joined in the fun.  Some didn’t even know that Fifty Shades of Grey had been fan fiction itself.  However, every day we share our stories, our joys, our frustrations and our love all things fifty shades.  We have become a family of sorts – alright, sometimes a bitchy family with a hefty dose of PMS (even the guys) – but a family nonetheless.  And quite frankly, we kick ass!

So I would like to introduce you to some of those FSOG Fan Fiction Authors who are now bloggers in WordPress world.  Some have been here a while, others have recently arrived.  All are making an honest attempt at sharing their oeuvre (albeit borrowed) with the world.

Please check them out:

Jane Harvey-Berrick

Jane masquerades as sunandsurf on fanfiction.net and is the author of such classics as Fifty Shades of Taylor.  As you all know, she is truly brilliant as an author in her own right so if you like her ff work, you will love her original stories.

Ani Surnois

Ani is anisurnois on ff.net and is the author of the beautiful 30 nights of Snow (The Masters Muse).  I can’t tell you how she blew us all away when she first arrived on ff.net.  She also lets me tweak her wordpress site every now and then, so I feel like I might contribute in some small way to her creative genius.

Lulu Price

Lulu goes by her own name on ff.net and is the author of Leaving You Behind. She also does some awesome work around pinterest to titillate your tastebuds and you all know how much I love everything about transmedia storytelling.

AC Netzel

Netzel is a firm favorite on ff.net.  as the author of Late Night Thoughts – one of the earliest FSOG fanfics.  Netzel is known in our circles as the Queen of the Happily Ever After (HEA).  Her work is the type that will keep you warm at night.

Monique Lain

Most of you know my absolute love and adoration for this lady.  Mobabe mentored me into this blog and I am eternally in her debt.  Of course, she is also the author of the stunning Fifty Shades Meander,  amongst others, and she writes a mean cliffhanger ending.

Rose Grey

Rose is one of those genuinely lovely people who has a permanent place in my heart.  But don’t let that sweetness fool you, she likes to travel on the steamy side with Fifty Shades of Fate.   She gives you the kind of visuals that make you want to suck in your breath and cross your legs.

Angie Bowness

One thing I can say about Angie, is she is prolific, and one of the kinkiest writers I know.  She’s brilliant!  In ff.net she goes by the moniker Missreadingfool,  If I had to make one recommendation from her list it would be The Reluctant Parent, just because it is my fave but quite honestly just read them all.  You won’t regret it.

DivineBronzeGoddess

What to say about this lady.  Bronzey is a force of nature and her story is phenomenal.  I could talk about her research, her pithy dialogue, her kick-ass characters, her unreasonably intense plot twists.  Just read it.  That’s all there is to it.  At ff.net you’ll find her listed as Bronze Goddess because she just is.  Her brilliance shines in Paging Dr Steele.

Ann DeSilva

Ann is one of those unique writers who has taken the original work and placed it within a completely different cultural context.  Which only goes to prove that the love story is the key to the appeal of the original stories, not necessarily the kink.  She goes by Anastasia DeSilva on ff.net and you should really check out Connected Souls.

 

There are others, and I will make an effort to introduce more from time to time but these are a wonderful starting point (mid point, ending point) if you loved FSOG and wanted… more…

Enjoy your weekend! Stalk me!

    Thank you so much for this post. I was first hooked on,FSoG by one of my local librarians. From there I found FF. Jane Harvey Berrick was one writer I fell for, hook line and sinker. I downloaded Kindle to my iPad to buy her books. Monique Lain was the second. I never tire of. Reading the first 18 chapters of her story. The rest is great, but I love the beginning. Ani Surnois writing; TMM / 30 Nights of Snow blew me away too. And, through her, I found, the poetry of Pablo Neruda. I think there are only two of your list that I am not familiar with. I will look them up today. Thank you Sasha, the great talent on FF deserves more recognition.

    I’ve known Jane Harvey-Berrick is utterly brilliant since the moment I started reading her blog. My mum (Mercia) got me started on FSoG, and now she’s calling me/emailing me every few days….”Oooooo I’ve found this amazing story!! You have GOT to read it!! And there’s a new Taylor chapter!” I never have any shortage of things to read, and through this intriguing world of fanfiction and indie publishing, I’ve “met” some absolutely fabulous people!! There are a few on your list that I really need to go check out!

    • Mum’s are great for that. Of course, I won’t let my Mum read what I write but that is a different story. Feel free to pass on the gems you find. I think it is great to give them another forum outside ff.net.

    What a a wonderful compliment to your fellow writers. Please don’t forget:

    Sasha Cameron: Mistress and Queen on back stories. Developing brilliant story lines along the canon and creating completely alternative lives for Kate, Elliot, Ethan & Mia keeping it all in sync with each other as well as the book canon. Being a frequent blogger, a moderator extraordinaire for her groups, a good and true friend who can always be relied upon, and a great singer. And when you consider that all of this is just your online alter ego, you are truly an exceptional lady!

    Hey, Sasha. I am a FSOG ff writer. Since I began writing, I have observed the facebook and fanfiction connection and of course, my usual incompetence of searching things from the web prevents me from being in the loop of things. You must be aware that it’s a basic urge of a human with a normally functioning brain to fit in among his/her peers… So is there a way to contact you… in private?

    I’m so grateful to Fifty Shades for introducing me to the world of Fanfiction. So many amazing authors (including you, of course!) and so many wonderful stories! As a reader, it’s a pleasure to get lost in the little universe of your stories. We owe all of you a BIG thank you for sharing your stories with us🙂

    (Oh, and I’ll ask you later on FB about the Fifty Shades group xD)
