Too bad Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James wasn't around to give Stephenie Meyer some sex tips years ago. Because—who knows?—the infamous Breaking Dawn honeymoon scene might have turned out just as hot as imagined.
But instead, E.L. dreamed up some smutty (NC-17 and very graphic) fantasies of her own for Edward and Bella before eventually rewriting it as a lusty saga for characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
So should Stephenie be glad that a hump-happy story inspired by our fave vampy duo lives on?!
We say it's a total compliment, doncha think? Steph should be thrilled!
In case you're out of the sexy loop, Fifty Shades is about a twentysomething college gal seduced into a world of S&M by a mysterious older man—but the "mommy porn" actually started as fan fiction called Master of the Universe, which had Bella and her vamp beau partaking in the naughty deeds instead.
And the Twilight connection is no secret.
Even E.L.'s agent, Valerie Hoskins, discussed it, saying "it was written as fan fiction…She took it down and thought, 'I've got a couple unpublished novels here. I will rewrite this thing, and create these iconic characters, Christian and Anna.' If you read the books, they are nothing like Twilight now."
Well, apparently Ana and Bella still have some similarities…Heck, Ana is a college student in Washington State, which would make perfect sense seeing as Bella graduated high school in nearby Forks.
And while the Breaking Dawn fandom seems to be fairly split when it comes to Fifty Shades, we think Stephenie should be tickled pink.
It's obvious Twi-hards want more action between their beloved duo beyond Breaking Dawn and, since Stephenie has said she doesn't "have much drive towards vampires" at the moment, they can channel it through (nonvamps) Christian and Ana.
Plus, E.L. can really get into all that raunchy stuff that would make the very Mormon Ms. Meyer blush.
We've reached out to Camp Meyer to see if Stephenie had the chance to get her hands on the naughty novel, but have yet to hear back. That said, if we know Steph, she's probably drooling over the saga of Christian and Ana as we speak!
Either way, we think it's a total win-win. Even Bella and Edward themselves, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, are onboard the sexy Shades express—so why not the woman who dreamed it all up, too?
