Ha! My mom started reading it too! I might give it a go and hope I don't come out sexually disturbed.

A few of my friends are reading it, and true, it's worse *beep* than you can find with a Google search. But still, I don't think it's any more awful than any supermarket romance novels I've skimmed through.

It just managed to become popular.

From what I know, it's only become especially popular because it started out as a Twilight fanfic and then got converted into an original story. What's the book itself actually about?

It details the growing sexual relationship between a young college student and businessman Christian Grey whom she interviews for the student paper. That's pretty much the plot.

Enough of this! Mam won't let me interfere; I'll just have to let her see for herself how dark an alley it is.

Meanwhile, I think I've got a solution for the heat problem in my room: tape tin foil onto the windows! The sun should bounce off the reflective material. Brilliant, eh!?

Well, I'm going on a week long vacation, so the interactive mystery I've been working on will be delayed. To make up for this delay, here are the planned suspects. Any familiar lack-of-faces in the group?

2 for certian but maybe 3.

Teddy and Willow (but a bit older)

The one I'm not 100% on is Exie.

Yep, that's Exie!

There are actually five reoccurring characters in that image; seven, if you count characters from my Clue mysteries.

I did something totally stupid...I jumped down someone's throat about an opinion they claimed to hold without understanding what they actually meant. :oops: Now I wish I had thought about it more carefully or otherwise learned the meaning behind the phrase before getting defensive about it. If they reply to my message, I hope they'll accept an apology.
