"Everyone thinks he’s hot" is the stuff of Mary Sue legend. You go, Christian Grey. Go into the trash and never come out.
I’ve never attended a college graduation (I live in the US). Anyone who has want to fill us in?
Every time E.L. describes Christian, he looks exactly the same as he did the last time she described him. I’m getting bored of hearing about his suits and his coppery hair.
50 Shades of Why: 75% bad, 10% horrible, 15% just okay. That makes for 37.5 shades of bad, 5 shades of terrible, and 7.5 shades of just okay.
A Google Image Search for ‘sports auditorium’ yields more indoor stadiums than outdoor ones, but I remain confused. Unless you’re intentionally writing a setting your protagonist is unfamiliar with, you don’t want your readers to be this lost.
Dear E.L.: Come back when you’ve learned to write relationships I care about.
We know Ray’s a minor character because his eyes are just ‘dark’ rather than ‘deep gray’ or ‘sparkling green’.
You were not the first person to make a Hitler comparison, but your ask was the last straw. I don’t know what you think I misunderstood.
You can’t decide whether your own comments were in good taste. In my opinion as a queer person and someone with Jewish heritage, almost all Hitler comparisons are tasteless. Was it necessary to draw parallels between Sam Taylor-Wood and a genocidal shitbag? Absolutely not. There are thousands of other historical figures you could have used as examples to make your point—figures who are not symbolic of the trauma of an entire people.
I agree that judging Taylor-Wood on the movie is a better thing to do than to make assumptions about her based on her gender. That said, there was no reason for you to bring Hitler into the conversation at all. Don’t do that, okay?
