The Autoimmune Fix yR character without having even the most minimal physical description of the two with barely any conversation passing between the two up to this point THEY HAD SEX FOR THE FIRST OF UMPTEEN TIMES For God s sake it was like a bad porno Is that what s doing it for people now Is that the big draw here So then I thought what else draws me to a story You can tell at this point I was still trying desperately to find some reason any reason this story originally attracted so many people that it had to be published So I considered what other characteristics I ve enjoyed about the stories I ve read and loved or even just tolerated Chemistry emotion character growth great dialog humorI love all of these things NOT ONE OF THEM WAS ANYWHERE TO BE FOUND IN THIS STORY Not an ounce Not one iota Nothing Nada Zip Zilch Lord help me but there was absolutely NOTHING but the most boring sex interrupted by bouts of incredibly childish annoying and tedious bickering between the two uite literally that is all there wasI am disappointed in the extreme Frankly I don t know that I ve ever felt this disappointed in a book on several levels Some days I have to wonder about the state of the publishing industry I guess this is just one of those days This review is obviously only my opinion which I am entitled to As I said when I began I do not enjoy being harsh and overly critical I loathe feeling the need to give a review like this But I m also committed to giving my full and honest opinion In this case my honest opinion is that there was nothing here that deserved to be published and if there was it certainly could have benefited from a good editor and the investment of even a little bit of timeARC courtesy of Gallery Books via NetGalley Thoughts before reading this book I wonder what this book is aboutThoughts while reading this book Holy hell BatmanThoughts after reading this book JIOFAIFJDSLK%U This review was not paid for nor endorsed by the authors In fact they d probably rather it not exist at all Ahhhhh I have been waiting for this book for so long I am so excitedMy official blurb for this bookThe perfect blend of sex sass and heart Beautiful Bastard is a steamy battle of wills that will getour blood pumping SC Stephens bestselling author of Thoughtless Well I feel like I m an unpopular opinion on this one It seems everyone felt strongly about this story whether they loved or hated it and I was somewhere in the middle The first chapter was exciting and bold but then things felt repetitive and stale until the 50% mark Finally the story picks up and I read the second half in a single sitting While I ended up enjoying the story I think my main issue was that I had trouble connecting with Bennett and Chloe we don t get any characterization until so far into the story that I had to uestion multiple times whether I cared I am however really excited to continue on with the series once I found out that Beautiful Stranger features Chloe s co worker Sara as I connected with her Middle of the road for me but I can see why so many people love this Buddy Read with Sam Clues and Reviews OK Where do I start with this oneFirst I won t be rating this book I simply don t know how to do it It s totally and utterly ridiculous but I still laughed like crazy through most of it The sad part is those scenes weren t funny I don t know what s worse the writing or the story Well since the story is non existent I guess the writing wins The dialogues between them Oh Lord I cried actual tears by how much I was laughing XD I m kind of sorry this was an ARC and I m not allowed to post any uotes but BOY I m tempted Some were brilliantly stupidThe main guy is THE BOSS he does everything like the boss he s a total bastard and they hate each other The heroine is an intern They fight a lot The rest of the time they just fck like rabbitsBack to the story I guess the story is to show how many times a couple can fck in a book without them actually having a conversation Chemistry is non existent Absolutely In the first scene between them they somehow manage to fck and it goes on and on and on His obsession with her pantiesThe ending was overly sentimental and sweet and I just wanted to get it over withSo even though I found this absolutely ridiculous I still had a great time laughing at almost everything in the book It didn t kill me dead it made my evening And the uestion is how to rate something stupid that ou enjoyed
readingyou don tdon t least I won t So I ll just leave a review thank ou very much DOh all through the book it was constantly reminded that he s her boss and there were a lot of scenes in the company and I just couldn t get this song out of my head It works great with the hero mwahahahahahahahahahahahahSong V Thanks for this gem DARC courtesy by Gallery Books via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review ARC courtesy by Gallery Books via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewoh Meditation A Key to New Horizons in God yeah i m starting this baby right nowthis is me before starting thisthis is me while reading thisOMG I DON T EVEN KNOW HOW TO START THISI honestly did not expect this Really I mean REALLYok let me just say something in the beginning This book is UNRATABLEHonestly in the beginning i wanted to give it 5 stars only because i can t remember when was the last time I actually cried from all the laughing while reading a book And 5 stars does mean amazing and by that it was amazing But for the love of God After some time of reading such a ridiculous dialogue between main characters or should I say lack of normal conversation i honestly wanted to go to the nearest store and buy myself a gun and a bullet with my name on itThe sad part is actually it is also very funny that this book is not written to be funny This book is written to arouse and getou horny and crazy for the main male character ladies OMG REALLY HAHAHA OK THEN The only thing that happens in this book is sex Either they did it or they were thinking about doing itDon t get me wrong I am all for sex part but this was simply ridiculous I was crying from all the laughing while reading their lines during the sex And don t let me just start with the lack of chemistry and connection between them All they ever do is hump each other I mean come on GIVE ME SOME PLOT AT LEAST A TINY BITThe story is about this BOSS AND HIS INTERNi think i said it all with only thatIn the end I really could not wait to finish this only so i could stop reading it and get over with itI know lots of ou ladies can t wait to read this book hell even I was anticipating it but seriously i am simply at loss of wordsI m not sorry I read it because i will repeat myself I was laughing all the time Well what to say The beginning was amazing we just jumped into the story right away Really great But in the middle of the book it started to be a bit boring still the same without any change Anyway it was still a pleasurable story If I had to choose Bennett was better I d liked him because he wasn t perfect He was a bastard Which is a sort of the point of this story I guess However my main problem is that this SCREAMS Twilight fan fiction Did it start as Twilight fiction or something I have come to a very important conclusion that has been a while in the making It may be a controversial opinion amongst some but I stand by it It is impossible for a writer to take their fan fiction and make it original You d think this would be a relatively sensible conclusion to come to and et we are now in an age where pulled to publish fan fiction mainly that of the Twilight brand has become the new normal Of course we ve got Fifty Shades of Grey to blame for this but it s not the sole culprit From Gabriel s Inferno to about 80% of Omnific and TWCS s output these works are filling up the best seller lists and leaving the traditional publishers scrambling for the profits What is interesting about Beautiful Bastard is that it was purchased by the publisher in its original form It didn t go through an indie publisher it wasn t self published it didn t go through any of the alterations EL James put Master of the Universe through before publication The publisher saw a fan fiction paid for it and put the writers to work fixing it up a bit I ve skimmed through a PDF of the original fan fiction and can confirm that the work has gone through some editing certainly than the search and replace hack job 50 Shades went through However once again I find myself disappointed with the state of publishing The truth is that the work just isn t good enough and that is partly because of its previous fan fiction state If ou RE A ROMANCE READER OR EVEN a romance reader or even ou re just a casual fan of the occasional rom com ou ll recognise this plot and set up pretty well You could join the dots from a mile away snarky but hard working assistant begins an affair with the beautiful but dickish boss that starts out as letting off steam and turns to undying love There s nothing wrong with a derivative plot line if it s executed well The big problem here is that it s delivered in a manner as pedestrian as the story itself The big problem most P2P work suffers from is the inability to fix the pacing Fan fiction is serial in manner intended to be read on a chapter by chapter basis While the authors of Beautiful Bastard have at least offered the reader the courtesy of some reworking of the original material the pacing issues remain unresolved While the book is readable enough in terms of pacing it s weirdly erratic The book starts uickly and rushed things happen uickly without much explanation and the time scale is a little confusing Whether this is down to the editing job or just the general uality of the writing I don t know While the sex scenes are mostly uite good although I wasn t a fan of all the underwear ripping particularly given how much La Perla pants cost certainly a lot better than anything else in P2P right now the relationship between our Bella and Edward stand ins Chloe and Bennett suffers from fan fic syndrome There is very little characterisation of both characters and their relationship moves uickly and predictably Once again fan fic syndrome strikes Here s one of the main reasons I just cannot get on board with P2P particularly on a creative level When ou write fan fiction Cashing the Chip (Shelter, you take characters that already exist andou use them as Tutoring Dallas you please Your story may be close to the original material or it may be completely AU in every way imaginable butou have been provided with the foundations You didn t write those characters someone else did Even if they only bear the smallest of similarities to the original source material when compared with each other The Life And Adventures of John Nicol Mariner your audience come with the previous knowledge of those characters and fill inour gaps themselves Here the gaps to make it original haven t been filled in The pair may not be Bella and Edward but they re stock romance characters in every other wayThe one thing that did make me smile was the appearance of a background character called Ed whose colleagues were called Daniel and Sam which officially makes me Britain s dullest woman And if La deshumanización del arte you can figure out why that made me smileou can join me in dull geek landThere are a few good lines and I m relieved that the story avoids most of the irritating clich s expected of the genre no blushing virginal heroine no domestic abuse masuerading as kink no soap opera style back story there s just nothing here that rises above stock category romance and I like stock category romance However I don t know many romance authors in that genre who got a 6 figure for something I can essentially find on Ellora s Cave for a couple of pounds if that If Göttliches Vermächtnis König der Welten 1 you re in the mood for a category romance I suggestou read an original one If ou re intrigued by this story get the original fan fiction PDF from Google Honestly this story get the original fan fiction PDF from Google Honestly this isn t worth the time and money that s been spent on it 25I received my ARC from Edelweiss I did not receive any payment or compensation to write this review I am not paid for my reviews and I do not set out to destroy lives or careers with my reviews If I had that level of power I wouldn t be living at home and writing book reviews in my pyjamas at midnigh. Appartenesse a una creatura così spettacolare e provocante con uella sua aria così innocente Non sarà professionale ma starle lontano è impossibi. .
Llgame What I will discuss is why this story in itself a P2P fanfic can t stand on its own legs as a strong work considered on its own measure let alone some of the offenses this book makes as a romantic read The long and short of what I want to say is that just because ou can write a fanfic doesn t mean The Sceptics of the Old Testament you can sustain a book by doing the whole substituting names and trying to rework details because that s not going to do the story justiceI hate saying this because I know that each writer has their own uniue style and coloring with respect to the writing that they do but there s no nice way of me saying that the writing in this isnot good It never should ve left the editing floor without significant developmental and structural changes in addition to editing What makes it even worse for consideration is that this comes from two writers who worked on this thing TWOChloe is a masters degree candidate working her way up the corporate ladder under a very demanding boss Many people consider her boss Bennett Ryan a beautiful bastard demanding perfectionist possessive misogynistic I wouldn t argue that at all among other terms The two don t hit it off very well when it comes to their working relationship but they have an unexplainable need to possess each other and freuently engage in sexy times while also putting each other down Ultimately they have a coming of terms where they realize they can t deny the attraction they have for each other and that the relationship is built on need so they go through a number of ups and downs until reaching the point where they recognize it The story s told between the perspectives of Chloe and Ben and they aren t exactly the most amicable coupleI can deal with unlikable characters I can deal with sexual tension power struggles and bold put downs I can even deal with the rough play by play that comes with some descriptions and depictions of sex Those are elements that can potentially be worked into a good story But the key to making those elements work is thatou have to DEVELOP them You can t skimp them to cede to other elements in this case the sex Otherwise it s not going to workI m not going to do comparisons right off the bat just what this book managed to convey on my first read of it First thing was that I had a hard time remembering the characters Not just their names but actually who they were You could substitute any name for Chloe and Ben and Reinventing the CFO How Financial Managers Can Transform Their Roles and Add Greater Value you would still get the very cookie cutter characters that were in this book Even with the several mentions of Chloe trying to work her way up with being in the business and having a masters degree I couldn t relate to her And I certainly couldn t relate to or find any attraction to Ben More on that laterThe sexual tension in this novel was very manufactured it just wasn t done well Usually whenou have two characters that have sexual tension there s a palpable power struggle with a level that goes beyond just the surface reasons higher position versus lower position in terms of working environment And usually the sexual tension really comes out naturally from two characters who have a much greater depth than the two protagonists of Beautiful BastardThere weren t very many if any palpable stakes to be had in this story The side characters were forgettable The sex scenes to me were dry and repetitive Lots of panty ripping lots of casual throws of bastard and bitch and whore Lots of male blaming female for turning him on Lots of female not wanting but still wanting to be turned on After a while Violin Fingering It's Theory and Practice Da Capo Press music reprint series you get desensitized to the whole thing it s just not sexy I didn t feel for these characters I didn t think they were mature or sexy I thought they were stupid That brand of stupid and the descriptions this book gave me than enough reasons for my blood to boilSeriously ifou start a chapter talking about how one character left the other character looking like he was molested in a romance novel right after a sex scene there s a problem there I m going to leave that for Anxiety Between Desire and the Body you to consider as food for thought I was going to take the time to address it but seriously this was one of the scenarios that nearly made me consider DNFing this among many And this review would be twice as long if I didIfou have a male love interest putting down the female character for turning him on and wearing a certain dress when the implications are referring To The Woman S Virginity And Basically the woman s virginity and basically her down in ever other way possible there s a problemI justhow on the ever loving earth is Ben even considered a sexy hero He s not just a jerk there s no dimensions to him other than thinking sex sex sex then bitch tease whore and a stream of other put downs He profiles any man that might be interested in Chloe There was even a time he criticized a guy for crying like a baby when he took a baseball to the shin in tenth gradeDude have ou ever been hit by a baseball to the shins It HURTS Don t knock it cause it could happen to ou I don t care how old پرسش های نخستین پاسخ های بی پایان you are Happened to me The guy who hit the ball was so mortified like ZOMG I am so sorry D I wanted to give him a hug even when I felt like I needed a hug And he was at least a foot taller than meThe word respect doesn t even enter his thinking for uite some time though there are tiny thread thin glimpses where we re supposed to see that he upset Chloe He thinks even as a coming to terms towards the end of the novel he has to have her like she s a possession There s a point where he realizes that she deserves to have her work recognized but even then there are implications in that scene that he really doesn t learn anything about what it means to respect And the message is mostly lost because there s no real depth to his coming to terms anyway ArghAnd if that isn t enough to consider there are certain turns of phrases that make it obvious that its referring to Twilight Chuckling darkly anyone Yes that s in Beautiful Bastard too Ifou don t believe me about its link to Twilight check out charlieissocoollike s reading of Twilight on Youtube he does chuckling darkly pretty well Or how about Ben not knowing whether he feels angry or not Really How can Ska you NOT KNOW whenou re angry about something or not knowing a certain emotion I can understand certain works like a girl being born without a fear gene or a robot who starts to become human but how does this relate to a domineering executive Sense this does not makeChloe is eually frustrating because she on one hand knocks down a lot of the things that Ben does but is also shown to reverse course and find him sexy after some really sketchy termsI really couldn t get a good handle on Edward s Ben s family They felt so generic in their drawing and the whole scenario with them being there was mostly about Chloe being a part of the picture so they didn t have any flesh to pinch fromOh and where is this story supposed to be taking place As in what country what setting how long of a time span in certain places Sometimes it was drawn other times it was a bit shaky except for the immediate place It s hard to tell because The Gods Themselves you don t get any of those shaping details in this story It isn t enough that we hear these vague details about a report or a presentation that needs to be done and that there s no substance to the actual work environment these two are supposed to be working in or home environment or even the places where they talk or engage in sexy times Settingenvironment is just as important to draw as any other part of a story characters plot thematic etc The problem is like pretty much all the major points of what compose a story these dimensions felt vague or were missing entirelyI could go on but I want to spare the last part of my review talking about the comparisons to the original fanfic unfortunately I can t delve into it as much as I want to already given the length of this review I actually read The Office after reading Beautiful Bastard to serve as a comparison Turns out they did take out a lot and changed it up in certain areas I can t really give a certain percentage Mostly uite a few shaping scenes I definitely noticed that the scene where the heroine s overslept and cursing up a storm at the beginning was taken out as were some other shaping and dialogue scenes To say it was any better from the omissions and changes though Was it refined tailored to a mature audience Not really If anything it was like the fanfic but I would argue that Beautiful Bastard s narrative felt empty because it was specifically a P2P fanfic that relied so much on the already pre drawn characters alongside other details Whenou take that element out it fell faster than a shaky Jenga stackIt doesn t do any good just to tailor or substitute in a story Examine it from the ground up If anything for those writing fanfiction it s a process that s supposed to help Becoming Project Five Fifteen you learn to give an eye to those elements so thatou can when Britain, Australia and the Bomb you are actually writing YOUR OWN WORKou can look and say Hmm what do Kiffe Kiffe Demain you I need to pay attention to in order to make this vivid resonant to connect with the reader and have them sharing the experience Examine the characters look at their situations shape their personalities go into the individual elements that make the story not just through substitutions or putting things in here and there and taking out willy nilly People will notice a reader will notice This wasn t really reworked it was just tailored and that tailoring missed the mark by uite a scale among other problematic elements that existed in BOTH WORKS It s not just that people don t realize just how unethical it is to publish P2P fanfics on the level of the publishing and monetary ends it shortchanges the storytelling process too ifou think about Just The Measure Of the measure of because there are people who aren t taking the lens to the essential story elements and realizing that those elements need the proper focusIn the end I recommend giving this a pass whether Sanzoku Ou King of Bandits Vol 9 you ve read the fanfic or haven t I wish I could have my time back from reading it because it really didn t engage me it wasn t sexy and I couldn t even be bothered with caring for its troublesome paper thin stereotypical lackluster characters There s better offerings out there in the erotic and romance genres This isn t one of themOverall score 055Note I received this as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher Gallery Books 1 StarI can t be a person who doesn t tell the truth about a book about my experience reading a particular story I just can t be that person If I love a bookou know it I don t hesitate to get effusive with my praise and love and sickening adoration If I don t like a book I try my best to not be a total raving witch about it and I hope that comes across when people read my reviews This review is going to sound harsh butI really don t know any other way to say what I feel needs to be said I ve written and rewritten this review multiple times and I m sorry but this is what I ve gotI went into this with the very best of intentions and expectations even after some less than stellar reviews on Goodreads I thought Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Artbook officiel you know it s a matter of taste and preference This sounds like my kind of story so I m gonna go for it One of my favorite authors loved this story in its original form and well that was good enough for me I was so excited to receive this and start reading I tried Truly I did So when all is said and done what do I think I honestly cannot comprehend what originally drew so many people to this story online that a major publishing house felt compelled to pull it pretty it up a bit and spend the money to have it published There is absolutely no snark or nastiness intended by that comment Truthfully I m completely and totally baffled I understand sex is a draw It attracts people in droves I get it I ve been one of those people on than one occasion The opportunity to read Beautiful Bastard is case in point But I have read FAR better far sexier far sensual for that matter far filthy sex scenes than what is offered up here There was nothing original in that regard In fact I knew I was in trouble with this story when by 4% in Kindle page 17 without knowing ANYTHING about eithe. Un affascinante bastardo Bennett è appena tornato dalla Francia Non si sarebbe mai aspettato che la voce di chi lo ha aiutato mentre era all’estero. Adult review for erotic contentHoo boy This is going to be one rambling review Prepareourselves because we re going in 15 stars Do I lead off with the fan fiction talk Okay sure Let s go back to the beginning I think that I might have had this book confused with something else when I reuested it Anyway it turns out that Beautiful Bastard is fan fiction Twilight FF no lessyet I d heard this was actually one of the early ones pre FSOG I think This story was originally titled The Office Yes a lot of people have made comments about the tv show I prefer the US version don t hate me Let s get real thoughI think I would have rather read a sexy fan fiction about the show COME ON Becoming Enlightened you know this could have been goldAlas there was no sexy time with Dwight Jim or Pam So what are my thoughts about fan fiction I understand why some people feel like no one should profit off of taking another person s characters or world and embellishing upon them It doesn t really bother me personally as long as it s made known who the original author is But again I understand why some people find it to be morally wrong even if this doesn t really set me off I tend to see red so when I feel like a book has blatantly ripped off another book and it s NOT labeled as fan fiction because then the original author is NOT getting credit for creating the world But anyway back to this book Instead of sexy tv fan fiction we get repetitive boring office sex with this book s version of Edward and Bella doing the how many pairs of underwear can we ruin dance He kept all of her underwear in a drawer Am I the only one who is now picturing serious funk smell in that office Oh also I felt her up in an elevator and was hoarding her shredded panties in a drawer Creeper Bennett recognizing the problem is the first step CongratulationsIt s good to know that I ll never fail to run out of love is a drug references in cheesy romanceerotica Ever If I d known that I d still be doing this aear later I would have kept a list because it s now at the point where I laugh myself silly any time it comes up But I also knew I couldn t stop I had turned into a junkie living for my next fixIt satiated the hunger I felt at that moment but like a junkie I found myself consumed by the need for as soon as it endedI craved her like a drug and this feeling consumed my every waking thought The drama was pointless He d stalk her she d get angry or slap him in the face and they d have makeup sex Rinse repeat For about 25 times THIS is not a story THIS is not a story THIS is NOT a story Hey I m than okay with PWP porn without plot erotica but if we re gonna go that route either the story needs to be about half the length a uickie just to get Jim Hensons Labyrinth you going or it has to be written by an author who writes the best damn sexou ve ever read to the point where Basic Training you forget to look for a story Unfortunately the sex wasn t THAT good Sure it was hot but a lot of the scenes were very similar Btwripping buttons off shirts is such a throw everything off the desk type of 80 s plot device I was already bored after about the second panty rip but they re ripping buttons too Woo hoo Am I supposed to be excited by this I d rather just see the guy slam the chick into the wall if he needs to have her that bad Ruining clothes is only hot the first time it happens Then it s just like some cheesy frat guy crushing a beer can on his head because he canGood to know that Bennett has his own inner goddess He had a small voice inside of his head telling him that he might never get enough of Chloe I wonder if his inner goddess also does backflipsHe also smirked a lot Where have I seen this before Oh right this came before FSOG Even still3 smirks per book max So why the extra half star I loooooooved the dirty talk near the end If there was one shining moment about this book it was that the dirty talk was seriously hot during the last couple of sexual encountersEhou win some and Gambling for Dummies you lose some Thankfully this was a fast read I don t need to waste too much thought on wishing for my lost time back This book provided from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Initial reaction In a word No Just no This is going to be the second of two long reviews I pen thisear that explain the myriad of problems that plague a work on a number of levels Beautiful Bastard had many and I don t know how it left the cutting room floor without anyone seeing them or for some readers not to be angry or upset I was very much the latter at some of the content This Book Has There S Much To book has There s much to so I ll let my full review expound upon it furtherFull reviewWhen I started penning this particular review I thought about going on an extended tangent about why being a P2P or pulled to publish fanfic can actually underscore a book s impact in terms of the actual writing process Since fanfiction is based on already created characters settings worldbuilding and the like if Dancing with Ben Hall and Other Yarns you try to just substitute the names and don t build the work from the ground up and I mean the ENTIRE work providedou didn t already do it as BUG DEATH you were going along it s going to underscore the storyou re trying to offer because people aren t going to know what Forests Hope (Timber Valley Wolf Pack you re discussing or have a foot to step onto the platform ofour work It s a template not the full packageThat long expansion explaining the ins and outs of fanfiction my thoughts about it my role in writing it personally the rise of P2P fanfics in publishing and its problematic trending among other things is still saved in one of the versions of this review I penned in Microsoft Word I thought about it and at one point I wanted to pull it but I decided no people should hear it so I m going to post that alongside my review on Beautiful Bastard Hope Keeping and Breeding Australian Pythons you guys will bear with me as I kind of go through the motions on that and then expound with my thoughts on this work bowsOh as far as the song that came to mind as I was penning this review I Didn t Mean to Turn You On Robert Palmer s version Cherelle did the originalI may take a number of tangents that explain the personal investments that I have in the topics I m covering surrounding Beautiful Bastard I do it only to better illustrate from where my perspective of the work comes and why I have many of the sentiments that I do when it comes to the content and the overarching work in itself So with that in mind I hope this review still givesou guys a clear cut viewpoint of the novel and why I may have some of the particular perspectives I do of the workLet s start this review with an open conversation about fanfiction Some readers that might go through my reviews may not know anything about what fanfic entails And particularly they may not see the objections to what appears to be a new work coming out that was once formerly Twilight fanfiction I ve seen people comment about Beautiful Bastard in that they say Why are people comparing this to Twilight This has nothing to do with Twilight I don t understand why people are making the comparison I m going to try to explain it on a
"base level and hope I m clear cut about it Fanfiction in general is a measure "level and hope I m clear cut about it Fanfiction in general is a measure collective writings that people do for a number of reasons based on an already released artistic work in the wider community They re stories that the writers in the fandom if ou will pen about the characters in what if scenarios that serve as jumping points from the original stories or set of stories they were derived from You have people who write fanfiction about Star Wars Stargate or a number of different movies You may have people writing fanfiction about games like in the Final Fantasy franchise or the Mass Effect series You may have people who write fanfiction about animated series like those in the Disney or Nickelodeon franchises or popular TV shows like Supernatural or Glee You can even see fanfics where people have written what if scenarios about works of fiction like classics such as Austen s Pride and Prejudice or Bronte s Jane Eyre Believe it or not there are actually fanfics that are written about actual historical figures or popular figures in media but that s a whole other conversation to be had When these fics are penned people often choose to share them in online communities for the other members of the fandom to partakeThe way I view fanfiction personally is that it s an exercise in creativity and those in the respective communities partake in it just as a measure of fun For a number of it just as a measure of fun For a number of personally I wasn t always aware of what fanfiction entailed particularly after reading a number of fics that were thinly disguised examples of Mary Sue writing But I d actually written fanfiction for a number of ears without even realizing it the way I termed it was thinking If I were a writer of a certain TV series or movie or novel I enjoyed what directions would I take that particular story or those characters What could I do with that It was a way of prompting my freewriting measures Once I did discover of the ins and outs of fanfiction writing and the various fandoms I think that opened up measures where I explored the communities even partook in it myself So when I say that I embrace the fanfiction community readers and writers alike I really do I ve written and am writing in it even now in considerations though considerably speaking I don t write in some of the larger fanbases and I write for a general audience mostly kidsteens or those who are A Wayside Tavern young at heart and like nostalgiaBut there s a slippery slope to be had about fanfic writing in general some of these rules are explicit others aren t There are some writersartistsmedia partakers that do not allow people to write fanfic about their work in any public spectrum for various reasons For another there s the knowledge that whatever story one pens in a specific fandom community if allowed regardless if the story is original in that it came from the writer s mind s eye it s based on a work where the characters locales existing story and other copyrighted measures that already exist with respect to that work belong to its original creators Fanfic writers do not write for the sake of commercial gain based on the copyrighted work or to take profits away from the people who originally created the work Most who are in the community are respectful of that This is one of the reasons why when penning and sharing a fanfic not in the public domain people in the community put a disclaimer in front of their work saying something akin to The characters locales and other respective copyrights of belong to the original owners and creators And a fanfic writer may go on to say what aspects of the individual work belong to them ie the actual storyplot original characters made up locales etcI could go on about the ins and outs of fanfic writing and fandom but that would take a book or two in itself It makes me wish there were someone with the guts to write a good non fiction book about the comprehensive history of fanfiction writing examine with a close eye what makes the fandoms uniue and takes an eye to the positive as well as negative dimensions You might be wondering Okay Rose why areou telling me all of this and what does this have to do with Beautiful Bastard Beautiful Bastard was originally a Twilight fanfic meaning the work created by Stephenie Meyer called The Office penned by two writers and shared on the web It initially gained its respective popularity that way and got picked up by the publisher who wanted the authors to rework it The original character names used in this story were Bella and Edward and the Cullen family was featured in this mature reimage of two office workers who freuently butt heads and engage in sexy times together One could say that Beautiful Bastard is one in a long line of up and coming stories that were once fanfiction but altered and marketed as original fiction when really they were what many of us term as pulled to publish or P2P fanfiction Now I could technically go into the moral boundaries that this work crosses as a P2P fanfic work with respect to publishing and profit but I m actually not going to do that in the spectrum of this review That s a whole other ba.
