It's the end of an era

Ok. I apologize to any of my lovely followers who have absolutely NO idea what Motu or Master of the Universe is. I apologize even more to my real life friends who unfortunately have to hear about Motu a lot - like A LOT.

Except of course for one of the besties who shares in the Motu love with me. She knows who she is and I don't know what I would do if I didn't have her only an IM away after a Motu update.

Master of the Universe by SQicedragon owns me. OWNS ME.

I have been reading fanfiction since my teens. I have been reading innapropriate fanfiction since my teens. How I remained innocent until college is beyond me because the smuttier the fanfic, the better.

And you can hate on fanfiction all you want but seriously, my life is better because of it. The friendships I've made over fanfic are priceless. For instance, in my third year of college, I was a major Prison Break fan. Total Michael/Sara shipper. It was the 2005/2006 Robsten for me.

I stumbled upon the most amazing, ridiculously juicy, M/S fanfic that was like crack served on a silver fucking platter. It was written by an incredibly talented author Bliss Ink and it made for a blissful distraction from studying that year.

A year later, on the other side of the country, I had the chance to meet this author who'd kept me on the edge of my seat so many times. And you know what? Three years later (literally, I think it would have been 3yrs like last week) I still talk to this lovely lady all the time and she's still just as awesome.


Warning: It can also make you look like a loser at the bar when you're favorite fic updates at 2am.

yes. thats me.
reading motu. at the bar. drunk.

Today the 87th and LAST chapter of SQicedragons "Master of the Universe" is posting.


I've known this day was coming.

I'm probably going to cry.

Judge me all you want - I love this fic more than Twilight and I think the author is far better than Stephanie Meyer. TRUTH.

So in honor of the story that I've been hopelessly in love with since December. The story that in all honesty kept me company on some of the darkest of nights following the end of 3.5 years of my life with my own fifty shades of fucked up. I give you my Motu Dedication Post.

"You're quite the disciplinarian"
"Oh, Isabella... You have no idea."

Truth: I never in a million years thought I would be into Dominant & Submissive stuff until this. Now bend me over your knee and slap me is totally an acceptable demand.

"Because I'm fifty shades of fucked up, Isabella"

Truth: I'm now painfully aware every time I bite my lip in front of men. I'm also secretly hoping there's a Fifty lurking.

“Six,” I whisper, as the blistering pain cuts across me again
and I hear him drop the belt behind me, and he’s pulling me
into his arms, all breathless and compassionate… and I want none of him.

“Well, you are one fucked-up son of a bitch.”

“Bella…” he pleads, shocked.

“Don’t you dare Bella me! You need to sort your shit out Cullen!”

Truth: I was sobbing after this chapter. SOBBING.

"I like control, Bella... and round you.... that just...."
he stands, his gaze intense, "evaporates"

"You love me" I whisper.
"Yes" he whispers. "I do."

Truth: I read this AT work on my Bberry three feet away from a guy I'd just met that looked like Edward Cullen. I was swooning for various reasons.

“No… no!” he says in desperation, and puts both hands on his head, and suddenly he drops, in front of me, to his knees… his head bowed, his long-fingered hands spread out on his thighs. He takes a deep breath and doesn’t move.

His head sweeps up without hesitation, and he regards me impassively with his green gaze, calm, almost serene. Expectant and completely passive.

Holy Fuck… Edward. The submissive

So let me raise my drink (because in anticipation of this final chapter, I need a bloody drink) to SQicedragon:
you created the amazing "Fifty Shades" and in doing so wrote one of my favorite stories that I have ever read. THANK YOU. It got me through some lonely nights and reminded me of what its like to REALLY love someone. Body and soul in all their fifty shades.

To the thousands of faithful readers: support group? yes?

Crys x

[A/N If you are not reading Master of the Universe but are totally sucked in after this post, it can be found at this link ---> 50 Shades I have recommended it to many and have yet to have someone tell me they lost interest or hated it. YOU will love it. Secondly, all of the quotes on here are from Master of the Universe by SQicedragon. No copyright intended!]

I am dying at you drinking and reading. Do you KNOW how many times I've done that? It's unbelievable.

Wow I just discovered your blog RTed by Bleriana.
I love it - the Rob/Kristen pics you have on your header and all through this post are my absolute favourites. Seriously can't believe it as I've never been on a blog where that has happened before.
I am a MotU fan and have done a few posts on it now. And yes I was sobbing too. I echo every one of your points about this ff except for the 2am update in the bar.
Officially following you...

I like you, have read an update in a bar, surrounded by people I work with who were wondering what the eff I was doing. I HAD to tell them, or, at least some of them. I think they think I'm off my rocker.

But I don't care. MoTU is the best. So glad I discovered your blog through twilightcupcake. What you did up ^ there. Amazing. Way to boil it down to the heart-racing, breath-erasing scenes.

Hopefully, you'll be able to commiserate about a sequel...
