This is the pit and I am the conductor.

It’s been a quiet weekend in twankland, but a few Nonnies starting rolling in tonight. One sent us something we weren’t certain qualified.

On a previous Twank for SR or ICY, a lot was brought up on MoG (Morgan Locklear). He writes a story called Bella Voce, vamp fic, that just isn’t that great tbh. I have attached a pic of his most recent twitter feed, trying to get a known fandom lady to read his story. She does not like to read 3rd person, and is a rare occasion when she does. His story is…..3rd person.

Some people just don’t have preferences for certain things. Most authors would shrug this off with a “to each their own.”

Or you could just badger them repeatedly until they submit to the fact that YOUR story will convert them:

When the reader asks what novel-quality third POV fics come to mind for Morgan, he declares:

WHAT AN AMAZING DISPLAY OF MODESTY! How honored those other two (suckier) authors must feel to be almost as good as Morgan.

His website, where he bounces back and forth between referring to himself in first and third person.

He realizes people are afraid to get invested in WIP fics, so he promotes, “Okay, here’s the link: http://www.fanfiction.net/~ Bella Voce is well crafted and well completed.”

Reminds his readers thatIt has come to my attention that there are many people who won’t even start a story unless it is complete.” Urges them: “So if you find yourself talking about Bella Voce you might want to include that fact. Thanks for all the traffic this week.”

In the same vein, says this of his own story:

*wank* *wank* *wank*

Loving himself raw there.

Sings and records songs for his own story.

Is the one responsible for getting husbands into fic by “having a dood friendly story that is also appealing to the ladies.”

Not to pimp my own work, but as I writer, I have my characters ask questions and it leads the story down better paths.

Just in case you missed his other gazillion self-promotions…

Then there’s this, posted on the discussion thread made for him on Twilighted for Bella Voce:

Let me make one thing perfectly clear…on this thread I will personally run off anyone who uses this place to do anything except celebrating the fandom and it’s accomplishments.

At least he’s honest about the “affirmations only go here” thing.

Twankas arejust jealous.”

Pushes another reader to make him a promotional video, even though she’s short on time, in exchange for retweets and him reading her story.

ZOMGZ my mention on Twankhard got me 100 readers!

And here, we thought it was because, as you yourself boast, your story is so “well crafted” and “has a poetic style that celebrates a classic kind of story telling without being dense” and “a defined wit that will give you giggles and even Belly laughs combined with a kick ass old school vampire approach.”

Did we mention that we love it when wankers review their own stories?

Because we do.

ETA3: MY THOUSANDS OF RAVING REVIEWS DON’T LIE

All four people who said they couldn’t complete it have my apologies, I write at an above third grade level so I can understand your confusion.

    Blah. I tried reading his story a few months ago but couldn’t get past the first few chapters. It’s not that great and he’s really annoying and too self-important.

  2. Ha. 100 more readers? Or 100 more people who want to be informed and know what they speak of when they continue to put you in your place?

    I started this fic many many months ago and quit it after 2 chapters. The Edward is not at all someone I want to read about… which is sad if a “dood” really did write this.

    • I'm not telling says:

      I don’t think he realized that it’s because he marked the story complete…I got about 100 new readers to my little crap piece of fic when it was finished too! and it was not in 3rd person…so it wasn’t hard to read…lolz

    What a wanker. Any guy who reads Twilight and then goes and writes Twi FF ought to be strung up by his balls (that is if he has any)

    • oh jeebus says:

      Careful! Don’t let the slores catch you saying something like that! Apparently there are only about ten of us around here, so we can’t afford to be losing anyone to angry fangirl mobs.

        LOL yeah they wish there were only 10 of us! Delusional as usual

        Hahahahaha. I saw that tweet. How they seem to think there are only a few of us making up our legion of nonnies is cute. *sigh*

        • I'm not telling says:

          Wow the sheer power we wield of there are only 10 of us! Those 10 have turned the fandom on it’s ear…fear it- fear it!!

      • amaaaazed says:

        ikr? clearly, out of all the people in this fandom, and then the many who perturbed by the twankery going on, everyone is just lurking and laughing and not posting. it’s only us 10 people, oh jeebus. or is that amaaaazed? am i you and you me? lmao!

    Haven’t read this fic, but if memory serves, I believe that ML once thanked SR on the UOEM thread for giving him the courage to openly post twific as a man.

    I’ll just leave it at that…

  5. TwankNonnie says:

    Oh, but you can’t forget that for awhile there, they were sending out “Bella Voce” songs to certain reviewers for hitting specific marks. 500..1000

    Specifically, I just like the big headed ego Mog has. I can think of a ton better 3pov fics than BV. I too started reading and couldn’t get past a certain point. Nothing about this fic screamed Twilight to me.

  6. woof says:

    So I had this fic on my ReadItLater list to check out when I had the time…it is now deleted, merely because I don’t like douchebag authors, no matter the gender.

    • I'm not telling says:

      Don’t let ML hear you say that! He’s sure that him being mentioned on Twank is bringing him all kinds of new traffic!

    In all the interactions I’ve had with Morgan Locklear, he’s been unfailingly friendly, funny and kind, so I’ll gladly give him the benefit of the doubt over anything I read here.

    And you’re really going to criticize a guy just because he’s writing fanction? I’m referring to “Any guy who reads Twilight and then goes and writes Twi FF ought to be strung up by his balls (that is if he has any),” above. Nice sexist generalizing there.

    • Anonymous says:

      I have not read his story and have not heard much about him. I was very upset to see his behavior in the U of Em thread last week though.

    • twankhardfan numberone says:

      I see the minions are onto me.LOL
      Actually I’m not just criticising him for writing FF, I’m criticising him about writing Twilight FF specifically AND for being an arrogant douchebag (as can be seen from the Twi threads) and from the above evidence. I thought that was made clear from my first sentence ” What a wanker” above. And if I have no respect for some conceited loser who writes Twilight FF and hangs about on the Twi threads and has hissy fits with a bunch of women then yeah I ‘m totally sexist. Cause you know, I so want a man like that in my life………he’s THE perfect specimen cause he writes about Edward and Bella.

      • Anonymous says:

        Fuck the minions, if my husband was acting like a precious, princess bitch, I’d be sending him out to reclaim his manhood. Do we have to be politically correct on twank? I’m guessing Mog stands for master of gayness, but thats a stab in the dark 😉

    • Anonymouse says:

      Yes but in the posts we’ve seen here he’s clearly so far up his own arse that he’s coming out of his throat. Sexism’s got nothing to do with it. The twank is that he loves himself and his writing too much.

    I tried to read this story. The “poetic writing” has the sensuality of an OB/GYN exam.

    • I'm not telling says:

      AND DONE! Best comment…~fin

      • WTFchuck? says:

        Wow! That awkward? Lucky i didn’t read it then.

        See I was looking for this fic a while back as people were talking it up. Funny, even back then i couldn’t find it for the authors ego.

        Also, he tried talking up one of my friends on Twitter, telling her how beautiful she was, then asked if she’d read his story. HA!

        • anonymous says:

          Oh hey, he did that to one of my friends too! Needless to say, she was throughly grossed out and never tried to read his fic after that.. lmao

  9. cookiemonster says:

    I’ve definitely read worse stories (and some are inexplicably poopular), but if Herr Locklear were to ask me why I’m not reading his, it’s not because his tireless self-promotion has failed. It’s because I’m not interested in historical stories where the characters sound modern, nor am I excited about Bella being a vampire. I do wonder if he’s writing for himself or for the adulation he seems to need.

    • still working on that anonymous name says:

      What do you mean those are your (completely sane and respectable) reasons for not reading? Didn’t you see his tweets? People ONLY DO NOT READ IT BECAUSE IT IS IN 3rd person POV. Sheesh.

  10. nonnie nonnie boo boo says:

    Why does he feel the need to point out that he has “lemons written by a man?” If this guy thinks he’s such a great writer and can do third person so well, why doesn’t he take all this energy, use it to write something original, and sell himself to publishers? (ahem…*real* publishers.) Apparently it’s because he’s not quite as fabulous as he thinks he is.

    • Monkey Bum says:

      I think he mentions “lemons by a man” for the same reason the tweens write “this is my first fic, please be gentle…” in other words, I’m still a virgin and have no idea how to write a sex scene.

    • Anonymouse says:

      How long do we give it before BV gets selected by Omnific for ‘publication’?

      • Anonymous says:

        Well as ML states himself on more than one occasion, BV is a novel!

        As such, it would make perfect sense for a publishing house with such prestige as Omnific to publish it!

        They are a perfect match!!!!!

  11. AnonymousHonesty says:

    I didn’t read The University of Edward Masen because it was too pretentious and because it was 3rd person. Most fics DON’T do 3rd person right. Yeah most books are 3rd but their editors and stuff know how to help them do it right.

    I started Bella Voce but lost interest when Rosalie had a roll around with Jacob in the wagon and she started levitation. It just got really boring. Bella Voce really is boring. It being 3rd is just secondary.

    • I'm not telling says:

      I agree that BV is just plain boring. I tried, but just couldn’t make it past ch 11! It’s quite pretentious…and not in a good way!

      But- then again, he regularly (on twitter) and elsewhere I assume…he refers to himself as a “Novelist”

      yes bc all us ff writers are “novalists…”

    • Anon E Mouse says:

      I flounced when Rosalie and Jake hooked up as well. The story just didn’t grab me or keep me reading.

  12. Anonymous says:

    The funniest thing about Morgan Locklear is the fact that he refers to his FanFiction story as a book and a novel. Someone needs to send him a memo and let him know this is FF not real literature, what a douche!

    I flounced chapters back as I couldn’t stand all the self love going on.

    Knowing that Squally is a pre-reader should of been warning enough to all!

            • I'm not telling says:

              Hey! Squally is an awesome ore-reader- just look at his A/N for the final chapter of his first “novel” He thanks her…profusely…

              “I wish to extend thanks to the following:

              Squally: You opened a lot of doors for me and, as a pre-reader, you never let me get away with lazy storytelling. Thank you.”

              Twank! How have you NOT posted his long winded A/N where he gracelessly thanks people

    Holy shit, I thought sleepyval had a big ego. This guy’s like six of the worst BNFs rolled into one.

    • Twilight Slush says:

      Sleepyval’s ego is so huge it’s disgusting. She should have a twank of her own. And her constant talk about her husband “the peen”, how much sex they have, her amazing good looks and musical theater/dancing talent, and her overly pretentious writing makes me want to stick a pencil in my eye. Not to mention, have you read what some of her characters say? People don’t talk like that!

      • AnonymousHonesty says:

        Tell me about it! All I know is, Art After 5 was an “accidental novel” and from what I’ve read through snippets it’s quite factual based on her own life but she vehemently denies that it’s autobiographical. Maybe not completely but good snippets are. From what I’ve pieced together from her Bella’s colorful life pre-Edward is sleepyval to a T.

        • yomama says:

          Sleepy needs a twank based on her twitpics alone. I want someone to tell her she is pretty so she will stop. And ok Sleepy, we get it, you were poor and now you have a little bit of money. Stop brand name dropping.

          • AnonymousHonesty says:

            Some are just conceited like that.

            • Anonymous says:

              She’s not conceited; she’s crying out for validation. Strange how she seems to want to be taken seriously and then trivializes herself by posing as a superficial drunk.

              Watch her when she feels ignored on twitter and see what happens. She’ll almost always say something vulgar or provocative and then leave. It’s like watching a child throw a tantrum.

              This, plus the peen talk makes me doubt that the talk over at Inficted is any more literate than anywhere else. To find out, you’d have to get past giselle droning on about twilight fanfic as literary phenomenon, the superiority of canon writing, and her own razor sharp cheekbones. Drunk on her own ego, while Sleepy seems drunk, period.

              • Twilight slush says:

                So true. I think it’s time to get some screen shots together of her twitpics and send them in.

                And the validation is nauseating. And why does she feel the need to big a huge fucking deal about pulling aa5 only to put it back on the blog THEN take it down again and THEN put it back up again? I mean, are you pulling the story or not? I also love how she gets pissed when people share it because she wants to publish someday. Gag.

              • hm says:

                inficted is no more literate than any other LJ comm.

              • cookiemonster says:

                I agree. I think she’s actually got some LOW self-esteem issues. She wants to be taken seriously but spends most of her time talking about superficial things like clothes, sex, and booze and then wonders why people shy away from her. She also likes playing the victim card, rehashing over and over the hate site GiveUsAKiss413 (now there’s a case of someone whose head needs its own zip code) started about her.

                Giselle’s ego needs its own solar system.

                  Wait, what happened with GiveUsAKiss413?! Deets!!

                  • cookiemonster says:

                    Gisellelx wrote “Ithaca is Gorges” and some other stories. She was the Comic Con panel person that some horny dude writer crushed one, referencing her cheekbones that could cut glass. She likes to take an intellectual approach to fan fiction and is friends with sleepyval (Colleen).

                    GiveUsAKiss413 (Tasha) started a LJ community called something like “DIAF Colleen”. I’m sure I’ve got the name wrong. She had at least one Podcast. She hates Colleen and mainly complains about C’s size — which is pretty lame if you ask me. The LJ site only lasted a few weeks and it was at least 6 months ago that it was active, but Colleen won’t stop mentioning it. She’s got a valid point — the hate she gets because people don’t like the age difference in the AA5 characters is over the top — but it gets old after a few years.

                    Tasha has the biggest ego I’ve seen in the ff community. She’ll yack on and on about how fabulous her writing is and how skinny she is. Neither “fact” impresses me.

                      Never got the ego vibe from giselle-lx. Just the opposite, really. Most popular authors don’t respond back to reviews or comments. I really don’t expect a reply. I’ve actually heard back from giselle-lx and she’s very gracious.

                      Don’t know about sleepyval or the others, but thought AA5 was very good and have been meaning to read Counterpoint.

                      The hate Sleepy gets from me is from her pretentious posts and name dropping on Twitter – IDGAF about your Prada schmada shoes or whateverthefuck. She ruined her stories for me with her mouth.

                      how did i miss this? and yah, sleepyval ruined her stories with her personality and then the whole pull-fic game she’s playing. i didn’t mind the age difference, but her writing style is too stilted and stuffy for my taste. maybe it was because her bella/edward were EXTREMELY pretentious, but since aa5 is supposedly reflective of her real life, it’s not a stretch to think she’s pretentious, too.

                      well first of all if its for class it doesn’t count! Because I asked and no one in my class finished it, its boring, or they just read the end because the teacher always asks about the end. LOL I b et that’s what giselle’s students do and she doesnt even know it.

                      And anyway I don’t think its millions anyway … back in the old days there were less people and not everyone could read, and even if they did read Wuthering Heigts its not like they had lots of choices … “oh what am I going to read lets see theres the Scarlet letter Wuthering Heights or I can read the Bible again … HMMM what am I going to do” And I think its important, now people can read anything and they CHOOSE to read fic.

                      But now there are seven billion people and we have the Internet and don’t have to pay to read fic like people back then paid to read books, dont you think more people will read fiC! They would of read it back then if they had it DUH.

                      This argument made Giselle’s classroom and fanfic efforts look worthwhile without even half-trying. Honey, you need help in basic math, logical reasoning, grammar, *and* writing.

                      You get what you pay for, and fics are free. Most are entertaining lady-porn diversions, but to equate them with literature is ludicrous. There’s no comparison, period.

                      Back in the old days, like this afternoon, some people were still reading books and enjoying them. Classics stand the test of time because they speak to us of feelings and experiences that are common to us as human. Stories about the size of Edward’s manly parts will be eclipsed soon enough by the next big fad to come along.

                      I mean, he seemed really into it and the video camera at the other end of the conference table seemed like a green light and he had the whole fic PDFed to his kindle for fuck’s sake!

                Conceited on her clothes and money but I agree that she’s a cry for attention. FF is that way for a lot of people out there. To me, she uses that DIAF thing to validate anything off she says now.

                I don’t know anything about Giselle but all this “intellectuals” in the fandom are driving me crazy. It’s fanfiction people. It’s not literature prose. Get off the elitist ladder and STFU

                  I like everything from intellectual fic to PWP. Depends on my mood. There’s lots of PWP, but not enough smart fic. Room enough for all sorts of fic, I think.

                  I like to see writers working towards something better than a well-written lemon.

                    There is nothing wrong with intellectual FF. But I DO find a problem with pretentious writing (AA5, UoEM) and talking down to readers when they might not a. understand or b. disagree with the character’s actions and motivations.

                    On the AA5 Twilighted thread alone are countless examples of Sleepyval get disgruntles with her readers because they disagreed with what the character’s actions. One reader if said she was surprised by the number of sexual partners Bella had in AA5 and Sleepyval told this person that she was calling Bella a slut and therefore calling Sleepyval a slut because she’s had more partners than that. Talk about self-insert. The reader WASN’T calling SV a slut. All she said was that she felt Bella had a lot of sexual partners.

                    Anyway, I digress…

                      I agree about not liking pretentious writing. Maybe I would have gotten a different impression if I followed the AA5 Twilighted thread. Dunno.

                    • AnonymousHonesty says:

                      Agreed and this is what I was saying. FF has turned intellectual into pretentious. SV’s mention that she had more sexual partners than Bella solidified that AA5 is a self-insert. No one gives a fuck how many dicks she’s sucked or fucked but she got pissed that people weren’t *getting* the genius of her life. It turned me off her and that fic. I lurked on that thread and couldn’t do anything but jaw drop at her attitude.

                      She got so uptight about readers *complain, bashing and not getting it* when it’s just a fic but you only get THAT unnerves when it’s a self insert. You can just tell which fics have lots of stuff based off the authors RL.

                      Her husband is younger than her, he went to Princeton, she went to the small lib arts in Amish town, USA, he’s Jewish with money, she was the skanky on for years and he tamed her, etc.

                      Self insert? Duh. Too much based on real life.

                      I never knew anything personal about SleepyVal and never visited the AA5 forum, but wow. And SV, if you are reading this, having that many sexual partners does mean that you were a slut back in the day. I’m not being sexist. I’d be equally grossed out by a guy who slutted around that much too. If I remember correctly, wasn’t it 50+?

                      I didn’t realize that she was married to a younger man who went to Princeton. Yep, very Mary Sue.

                      I totally agree! There is a difference between smart/intellectual stories and stories that throw barbs at its very audience. The horrid thing is that the writers and the reviewers can’t seem to tell the difference.

                  How else would an erstwhile academic justify time spent writing and reading fanfiction than by exalting it? There was talk at ComicCon of degree candidates writing theses or dissertations about fanfiction. If that’s really the case, our secondary-education system is well and truly crocked.

                  Giselle may be nice to individual readers, but I’ve also seen her be incredibly pompous about her writing and about canon writing in general. Watching her in action on twatter and at ComicCon put me off reading anything she writes. I wouldn’t be surprised if her Carlisles are self-inserts, given that he’s her favorite and she’s such a brilliant, mature, and compassionate individual herself.

                  Excuse me while I dab my eyes delicately with a hankie. Laughing this hard is strenuous work.

                      I don’t see the problem with gifts like that though not a lot of celebs actually keep that stuff, so it’s probably a waste of time and resources to do that. I’m not sure if I’ve read her stuff, but if it’s anything like most the Twific out there, I would not want to give it any of the actors in the movies. That’s just plain weird to me. It takes some serious confidence though.

                    I was at the Comic Con panel and Giselle’s approach was almost laughable at times. I agreed with the previous poster that she came across as anything but gracious and dominated the panel for her own benefit. She talked about how she was trying to find an agent (writing original work) and about her education and about her extreme knowledge of REALLY BIG BIG WORDS *clapclapclap* It was so over the top that I wanted to tell her, “You do know you’re talking about FANFICTION, right?”
                    As far as sleepval, I’ve never read anything of her’s but I’ve seen her in action on multiple twi-communities and every question, ever response, is a way for her to prove her intellectual superiority.
                    I don’t know what sleepval and Giselle hope to accomplish by trying to prove they’re ‘smarter’ and more well-versed than others, except to make me scratch my head and wonder, “You write fanfiction. Thus, you’re really not that smart.” It’s seriously my biggest pet peeve of the fandom. Most of these egowanks are all the same. They think they write better, they know better and are just all around smarter than the rest of us. What they don’t know is there are some very modest writers who are engineers and lawyers and scientists and professors. They write FF for fun, not so that everyone knows how smart they are so, you cna be jealous of a FF writer. No. For fun.
                    If you want to show everyone you know how brilliant you are, write your own work and stay off of us pee-on’s of the FF world.

The men in that fic think he shit smells like freesias, lavender, roses and sunshine all wrapped up in a big perfect bow. She’s not that awesome but let the fic tell it a man talks to her and he falls head over heels.

              To each her own I guess. 🙂 Personally, I love GFWS … IMHO it’s smartly written and I love the politics of it. It’s a 3rd POV written well.

              I actually prefer 3rd POV; the lion’s share of my top fics are all in third. But of course, that’s that catch – if they aren’t written well, or if the story doesn’t engage me, it loses me.

              I tried Morgan Locklear’s fic, and it just … lost me.

              I think self pimping is fine (I’ve done it myself). Most of us tweet if we’ve updated or whatever. This blatant harassment and foisting of one’s fics on other people is not only twankworthy, it’s rude. This guy (if he really is a guy) is one of a handful of really aggressive writers.

                  Seriously, it’s the greatest thing to hit fanfic since FANFIC. I completely reinvent the wheel with this one, you guise!

                      I don’t know what you’re talking about! There are distinct differences between “The Sparkly and the Slutty” and “Laid Bare.” For one, I completely turn the fandom world on its axis. The Sparkly is Bella, and Edward is the Slutty. Completely different! AND NEW! Nobody writes a slutty Vampire Edward quite the way I do, which is to say nobody writes him as great as I do. Dare I say that even Stephenie Meyer can’t quite reach the heights in which I take him? Yes. I do dare. IJAF. Not only does my story have that twist, but it’s written in a way seldom seen in Twific. It might be off putting at first, but I’m begging. No. I’m pleading that you guise give it the ole college try, for me? It’s written completely in the second person. PUTTING YOU RIGHT IN THE STORY! You’ll never experience a fic quite like this. I’m quite certain. Quite. Certain. That you will NEVER experience it.

                      Oh, and Yes… I hate that she signs off as “Betty.” Way to do a disservice to her favorite writer, js. And I’d say that about anybody who assumes another well-known writer’s name as their fanfic name.

                This is one of those stories that seem to be enjoyed by many, but I dislike it. I gave it a few more chapters because I try to give author’s a chance to sell me on their fic, but this one seemed lacking from the very beginning and never came close to winning me over. Now, the Cullen Campaign has me sold. That author knows how to approach politics with flair and intelligence and the tension/witty banter makes it far more interesting. That author also responds to reviews which I appreciate. GFWS seems so blah in comparison. I’ve skimmed recent chapters to see if I made a mistake in my opinions of the fic, and they even dropped further. I give up on that one. I enjoy 3rd person fics usually.
                oh well.

                  My fic pet peeve is when authors gripe about reviews. I can understand griping about a review that says something along the line of, “That sucks.” I imagine that most authors can easily dismiss those without a big blow to the ego. But I’ve seen authors freak over things that weren’t even that critical. I guess they were ticked just because it wasn’t over flowing praise.

                  If you don’t want criticism, don’t put your fic out there for public consumption.

                      littlesecret’s Kstew-induced porn (kripples!) tweets are an embarrassment of riches. I think the only reason she’s on ADF is so she can shove the lackluster Stewie down everyone’s throat.

                    • Anonymous says:

                      She’s creepy with the KStew love, like, seriously creepy. She is the type of person every celebrity fears. It’s over the top and just fucked up. (and it has nothing to do with it being KS. if anyone tweeted and was obsessed with any celebrity as she was it would be horrifying.) I’m waiting for the day she and ABG team up to track down Rob and Kristen and cholorform them to kidnip them to some secret hideaway they’ve found. I follow her for the pure amusement that IS her. She tweets more than anyone else in the fandom (Is she a lawyer? I don’t know any other attorney that has that much free time) and is so evil bitchy because she’s so lonely. Not an observation, a fact. All she does is sit around her apartment, writing FF and tweet hateful shit. She’s bashed every.single.fic. out there without regard for the authors and only talks about her fics and a couple of her friends (and friends sock acct fics.)
                      And did try reading AoC and was squeeeekeddddd out. I don’t give a shit what the law is in some places, a 16 year old sucking some 25 yr old dudes cock is not my idea of a fun, interesting read. Although, it’s obvious by her lemons, she is SO that type not to have the type of experience to lend to her writing.

                      I started AoC and was thoroughly creeped out. It was recommended on Twilighted and thought I’d give it a spin. There wasn’t much redeeming about anything of them characters.

                      I’m glad others see how much she tweets because that’s what I said. She’s annoying twitter happy and the KStew love is creepy. I get it, she’s pretty but stop for the love of all that’s sane. Enough is enough.

                      I’m not a fan of her writing but I find it strange how all her Bella’s seem to be the same person. Shallow, and extremely conceited. From what I’ve seen swear if her Bella’s aren’t the BEST example of a self insert I don’t know what is.

          I was actually told that Bella and Edward were SO into each other they would never discuss “mundane” things (her words) like what they did during the day.

          • AnonymousHonesty says:

            OMG! I remember that mundane post. I archive in that thread to get some lulz well that one and many others. She told a lot about her personal life then made it disappear. According to her though she giggles when people think AA5 is autobiographical because she isn’t Bella. Instead she just owns to being a little skanky and marrying her *longtime fuck buddy because she got pregnant* How long time was he if she managed to have more sexual partners than Bella? That doesn’t add up. That should be married ONE of my longtime partners because I got pregnant. That’s a shit load of men and woman in between. Good she can keep up.

            Everyday things are not mundane. But let her tell it, talking about your day is mundane and only discussions on literature and politics and the economy are worthy of conversation.

            • Twilight Slush says:

              I remember that post too and personally I thought it was odd. I mean, seriously, what couple DOESN’T talk about the mundane. There can’t be stimulating conversation ALL THE TIME.

              Also, I just went back on the Twilighted thread and re-read her responses to many posters. WOW. That is exactly why I never posted there and why I never read CP.

              I also love how at one point she says “this all stopped being fun for me months ago.” THEN WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE? Because she has FGB obligations? Riiiight. She’s an attention whore that can’t see when she’s expired.

              • AnonymousHonesty says:

                She’s shouldn’t even offer herself up for so many FBG obligations if she can’t deliver. Many authors need to stop that. I offered what I knew I could do in a decent time span but so many have stories and no shots they are still dragging their feet for from the New Moon auctions. Breaking Dawn part 1 will be out before she finished Some Little Girls.

                  They offer because they want their name up in lights. I doubt there’s one in a hundred that would do it if somehow it were all anonymous. (Which it couldn’t be because people bid on authors whose writing they like, but you know what I mean).

                  The ones that particularly annoy me are those that offer sneak peeks of upcoming chapters. They were going to post them anyway, but let’s see how high the bidding goes for something I don’t have to do any extra work for! Let everyone stroke me for working so hard for charity!

        • amaaaazed says:

          Exactly! She totally ignored my reviews when I commented on the coldness and stilted style of her characters and her prose. I bet she didn’t like that… She never replied though since I didn’t kiss her ass.

          • Anonymous says:

            Initially I thought AA5 Bella was a harsh, ice-cold bitch that would thaw under Edward’s influence and grow into a more likable person. What happened instead was that Edward grew into an ice-cold asshole and both of them were completely unsympathetic people. Yo. Awesome!

            • Twilight Slush says:

              YESSSS! ^^THIS^^. I found the dynamic of the E/B relationship odd. At one point Sleepyval said, “Full disclosure is a folly of youth. Experience teaches Edward this. Yes, he asked Bella and yes, she eventually told him. He later regretted asking her about her past, and told her as much down the shore. He answered everything she asked, he just didn’t volunteer anything.”

              Umm REALLY? Folly of youth? Maybe in her marriage with “the peen”. But me and my husband have full disclosure about EVERYTHING. Past, present, whatever. We share our lives with each other. We talk about the mundane. I understand not everyone lives this way or even needs to but I found her comment rude.

              My favorite comment on that thread was when a poster said:

              “Will Edward eventually think of the 2 months that just passed? After the bathroom confrontation in AA5 when B/E were invited and declined to attend the hot tub orgy… the girl walking behind them said “Edwards not fun anymore… It must be the new girl friend … even after he and Kate broke up Edward still made the rounds” So was Edward attending hot tub parties during those 2 months? Back at xmas Edward said “I talk to you all the time, I wouldnt have time to sleep if I had a relationship” (paraphrasing of course) I thought that meant that he went to school and then spent all his extra time talking to Bella. But the over heard comment seems to imply that he was going to “social” events as well. Was that during the 2 months *after* xmas when he seemed to be avoiding Bella? Will we ever know what Edward was doing when he “made the rounds”? Or is that one of the things that wont gel with AA5?

              Trying to understand, not offend.”

              It’s a valid question and not written in a rude way AT ALL. And how does SV reply?

              “Did you go to college and live in dorms?

              (again, not trying to offend)”

              REALLY?! Was that comment back to this person really necessary? Not everyone who went to college had hot tub parties and drank and had sex. People grow up differently and Val can’t seem to understand that.

              Gah, I have to stop talking about her. She makes me rage. not to mention, she’s another idiot for putting her name out there. I know more about her than I ever wanted to.

              • Anon E Mouse says:

                That’s a horrible reply from SV. I graduated from college all while not living up to SV’s college kid standards. lol

                • Twilight Slush says:

                  Yeah well SV also had 50+ sexual partners so while I was busy graduating law school she was busy being naked. So…

              • AnonymousHonesty says:

                That made me rage too. That was so backhanded “not trying to offend” bitch please you knew what you were doing.

                Not everyone was slutting it up in college. I’m like you, my husband and I have full disclosure because we’re open and have nothing to hide. It’s in the past so what’s the big deal in telling it. It’s better to know from the source that hearing information secondhand. Not that we had salacious pasts like SV anyway but still.

              • amaaaazed says:

                WoW! That dismissive reply back to the reader who actually had a very good observation (and now I’m curious myself) makes me want to slap a bitch. Seriously, what a bitch. I actually did go to college and live in the dorms. If there were hot tub parties in my dorm with orgies, I’m extremely fucking doubtful. And my school was considered to be a ~party school at that time. And yes SOME people drink and have sex in college, but it doesn’t seem right that the Edward she wrote would be that dishonest about his comings and goings while chatting with and working toward reconciliation with an ex he claims to love and respect. I had a theory that Edward wasn’t exactly up to no good like the girl in the hallway’s comment would lead to believe. Sometimes things happen around you. You can go to a party just to make an appearance and have a few drinks. I remember thinking that he used the whole non-full disclosure as means to gain power over Bella because his insecurity is still present and he wanted to punish her with her own doubts just as her past/his doubts trouble him in the back of his mind. That whole full disclosure being the folly of youth is bullshit. I’m not even sure what that even means? Is she trying to say that people in mature relationships, who want to share the rest of their lives together, should get used to lying and letting the other know only what you want them to know? No fucking thank you then. I’ll keep my “immature” relationship where discussion and honesty is expected and happens.

            • AnonymousHonesty says:

              WORD.WORD.WORD! EXACTLY! Edward when they reunited was a guy I was not a fan of at all. I think it jumped shark for me when Bella tried to get him back and he was all little just fucked Kate asshole. And SV chalked it up to Edward being more mature. I didn’t realize with maturity came assholery. Color me surprised.

              It was a complete role reversal and I didn’t like it one bit and SV’s Prada wearing claws came out when people started pointing out this and it was not pretty. Pretty fucking hilarious but unclassy on her part. It is your story and you have a right to defend it but people AREN’T going to like everything your characters do so to be a bitch and cut people down when they voice they’re dislike is uncool, unclassy and bitchy.

        And don’t forget that she’s the only person in the ENTIRE fandom who has ever written realistic buttsecks. Out of what are probably hundreds of thousands if not millions of people she’s the only one who knows how to do it right. Certainly something to be proud of.

            And if she thinks she is just so far more intelligent then the rest of the FF-com because we didn’t ‘get it,’ someone needs to flick her nose with a reality hose.

    I have no issues with a guy writing Twific. That being said his was boring, I couldn’t get past the 3rd chapter, and I was pushing it to make it that far.

    As a Twific writer I’m appalled that he would actually hound someone into reading his fic, it’s fine imo to say hey I wrote a fic if you want to read it here it is, it’s complete asshattary, and completely twank worthy to say READ MY FIC because it’s the best thing ever, and to keep harassing someone until they give in. And it’s completely lame to blame his low review/reader numbers on the fact it is in third person. I would like to point out to him that MTK writes all of hers in 3rd person and it is popular, and interesting (to me at least, not to everyone’s taste I know this).

    • AnonymousHonesty says:

      I’m not a fan of her stuff either. I can’t write in 3rd. I don’t think I’d so it justice and I don’t really want to try. Maybe a oneshot but never a fic.

      If you are well aware of your arrogance, as you state, perhaps you need to take a step back and not try so hard. It’s one thing to defend yourself with facts and humbly submit that your fic may not be to everyone’s liking, it’s another entirely to let your hubris get in the way and insult not only other highly-lauded authors, but also the very readers or potential readers you wish to attract.

      Fanfiction is NOT literary fiction as defined by the publishing world. It is pop fic, plain and simple, and should be treated as such. Even the most vaulted of the fan fics written would not make trade, although some authors may successfully find means to self-publish.

      I personally cannot judge your fic as I have not read it. What I can, however, tell you, and with great alacrity, is that based upon your comments here today, I will now not ever read Bella Voce.

      As for people being obsessed with you? I believe it is you, dear sir, who is completely obsessed with yourself. Nobody likes an egotistical jerk and that is exactly the way you are acting, despite the way you were treated by the twankhards (I shall refrain from stating my mind about them at this juncture).

        I was trying not to judge you to hard, I have spoken to you in the past and thought you were an alright guy but you are currently doing yourself no favours. The attitude you are useing here is to be honest disapointing, I was indifferent and I was going to read BV to see what I thought for myself I now will not be. If people are putting you down be a man and rise above it. I can now see that all the talk of you being a gentleman was not true.

        This is disturbing, patriarchal, offensively sexist speak. I truly hope you weren’t being serious. You know this is a fandom populated by women. It’s one thing to have an ego – it’s quite another to spout something that could be considered sexual harrassment.

        Dude you JUST got Twanked. No one gives a fuck about you but Squally and your other peons. The Twankhards just had to showcase your Everest sized ego.

        You just got the attention today and the other day. Yes. People are REALLY obsessed with you.

        I do have to say though that “slaves and orgasms” says a lot about you and it’s not good things. The wife seems nice but I now see that she’s a few Skittles short to think your ego is sexy.

    I really know nothing of Morgan Locklear. I knew he existed, I read about 3 chapters of his story a few months back, but I was interrupted & never got back to it. I’ve had one brief conversation w/ him on Twitter having to do w/ writer’s block and he seemed like a nice guy. I did read this post and giggled at his big head, but that was the end of it for me.

    Then I opened my email an hour or so ago, to find the following:

    From: Morgan Locklear
    To: Me

    We haven’t met but you had some choice words about my story…hey you are entitled to your opinion…now here is mine….you are clearly small minded and stone hearted, you are most likely proud of this fact, but you have my pity all the same.

    So all I have to do to get you to hate me is to be talented and know it?

    Well…..hate away, I am getting tons of free press and having a ball.

    Morgan

    Sent from my iPad

    **

    Initially, I wasn’t going to say anything about this email here. I don’t particularly want to give this guy any more press at this point. However, after I sent him my reply which basically said, “Why on earth are you accusing me and what makes you think you’re even a blip on my radar let alone someone I would bother to trash in public (which, btw, I never do – even when a fic really irritates me, I wouldn’t trash it in public because someone worked hard on it and I don’t have to like everything I read), all I got in response was “Nice try.”

    I just…don’t even know what to say to or about this arrogant ignoramus. But the fact that he feels okay about just blindly accusing people of shit when he has absolutely no proof of anything speaks volumes. I guess he did get his wish, though. I AM talking about him now.

    • DyingOfLaughter says:

      whoa. that email was something else. very sad that he behaves that way.

      • Whatdoesitmatterifitwontshowanyway? says:

        I assume he thinks I am one of you. One of the “has been writers” he is referring to (never mind the fact that my recently completed fic has 3x as many reviews as his. I digress).

        That’s what I get for admitting on Twitter that I read this blog, I guess. That automatically makes me guilty of grave sins.

        I know it shouldn’t, but it really bothers me that he is just brazenly accusing me of something I didn’t do. While I don’t know how many there are, I do know that he and I have some readers in common. While I couldn’t give two shits what “Mog” might think of me, I don’t especially relish the idea that he is going around spreading lies about me.

        I need to go rinse my mouth with Listerine to rid it of the taste of this prick.

            This bullshit just obviously got under my skin today. I have done and said a lot of stupid stuff in my day, some of it perhaps even Twankable (like in a prior comment I said I had never asked for reviews, then I remembered that I promised an EPOV outtake if/when I got to 2000 reviews. Oops. My bad. Again, my apologies). There is just no reason for this guy to make stuff up when I give people plenty of ammo on a daily basis.

              He got under my skin too because I did not like that he was able to identify you at all.

    I often wonder what some people look like who write FF. Like I have this idea in my head that the author is blonde or brunette, tall or short, thin or larger. Usually I am proven wrong but then sometimes I am right.

    Like what does ML look like? After reading his comments here, I was curious as to what he might look like. I just found a picture of ML through Google and he looks exactly how I envisioned he’d look–glasses, beard, shaggy brown hair, overweight.

    Oh yes, definitely orgasmic material.

  37. ShakingMyHead says:

    I wasn’t going to post here because I don’t think this blog really does anyone in the fandom much good, but I’ve NEVER seen a cockier author than this guy.

    It’s obvious he’s loving the attention and won’t back down, period. And he’s very insecure about his writing – that’s why he’s defending it and slamming it down peoples throats the way he is.

    Morgan, you may think this is going to get you attention, but it’s not the kind you want. People aren’t going to want to read your story simply because of the way you’ve responded.

    I have to tell you … your story isn’t groundbreaking. As soon as I read the words “Paris” and “1892” (or whatever year) my first thoughts were an Anne Rice wannabe. That was strike one – and please, for the love of GOD, do not compare yourself to Rice. And yes, I know The Vampire Lestat took place before 1892, but the parallel was pretty obvious.

    Secondly, you’re writing about vampires in fan fiction, as someone else said above. Not so groundbreaking.

    Third, take a writing class. Or ten.

      Hate is reserved for something you give a crap about. What we do is point and laugh and mock. Or maybe you’re cool with comparing a Twilight wank blog to something like bigotry, racism, and gay bashing, in which case:

        If you care so little about this stuff, that makes you all the more pathetic. Try some volunteer work to fill your time. It does wonder for self esteem.

        Btw, I think cyberbullying IS hateful. Other than the very funny Mr Locklear, none of these authors have done anything to provoke being hurt by you. And if you don’t think they’re being hurt with your words, then you need to read up.

        “The National Crime Prevention Council’s definition of cyber-bullying is “when the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person.

        Cyber-bullying may also include threats, sexual remarks, pejorative labels (i.e., hate speech), ganging up on victims by

        —>making them the subject of ridicule in forums, and posting false statements as fact aimed at humiliation.”

        • oh jeebus says:

          ‘posting false statements as fact aimed at humiliation’

          Well, these statements are aimed at humiliating people, but they’re not false – all you have to do is look at this guy’s twitter to know that.

          And if you’ve read any of his comments on here today, you would know that the only one making ‘sexual remarks’ was Morgan himself – which was way beyond the line of appropriate.

          Plus, I don’t think his huge ego is allowing him to feel hurt by any of this.

          • nonnymouse says:

            Ok, I apologise for using too difficult language in my post. See, when I said “other than Mr Locklear, that meant that I was referring to other authors as well as readers who are being hurt by the aforementioned hate spewing.

            Obviously, Mr L is having a grand time with you all. But there are more sensitive people out there who are hurt by being referred to as clitlicking sheeple. Come to think of it, I don’t think Mr L nor Mrs L would object to him being called a clitlicker:-D

            Personally, had I the opportunity, I’d lick the hell out of Icy’s clit. She rocks and she’s one of the best authors I’ve ever read. She and her readers are clever enough to recognise the difference between serious literature and a fun little (ok, not so little) romp into fantasy land.

            AND she takes the piss out of herself constantly. Sense of humour is not lacking. It’s sense of humanity that causes people to be hurt by this blog.

            • oh jeebus says:

              So a behemoth of a story that deals with dark themes and is full of very mature content is ‘a fun little romp’ but calling out twank-worthy authors that have gotten too full of themselves and think the sun rises and sets out of their ass is cyber-bullying and hate-spewing?

              Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed MotU, and as far as I’ve ever seen, Icy’s pretty tame compared to some other ff authors. But this post was about Morgan Locklear, who apparently *cannot* recognize the difference between ‘serious literature and a fun little romp into fantasy land’ – hence the reason he was twanked.

            • anonymous says:

                I’d lick the hell out of her clit because she’s a great person. Btw, that was a joke, something this blog supposedly endorses. Maybe that just counts for lulz you can get when tearing other people down, rather than building them up…

                  and who exactly is being torn down? that’s a bit much. the people who like her and want to lick the hell out of her clit will continue to do so, and the people who don’t won’t. she will live another day even in fandom.

                • Oh for fuck's sake says:

                  Shit. You people keep changing the rules. First, to get a clit lick, you had to write fanfiction. Now, you just have to be a great person?

              • nonnymouse says:

                Again, for people who seem to think they have such great senses of humour, you miss the point more often than not.

                The so-called “convention” you keep talking about was a group of friends getting together. One of the actual positives that has come about as a result of this fandom has been the chance for people from around the world to build relationships. When the opportunity arises for those friends to meet in person, that’s something to celebrate, not denigrate.

                If more people spent time clitlicking, and less time spewing venom we’d have a much happier world, IMO. Come on, people, let’s have a good lick, shall we? You’ll feel much happier, I promise. *slurp*

                • Anonymatopoeia says:

                  Gee, I dunno. When my friends get together, we call it friends getting together. We sure as fuck don’t use the word “gala” nor do we center it around one person we deem a “BNA.” Call me crazy, but in most of the world, friends don’t rank each other based on the number of reviews their fanfic has.

              I appreciate Icy’s sense of humor. I think the whole Icycon thing was meant to be funny. The girls got together and had martinis, from what I understand. It’s not like they are participating in group lynching and ridicule like in the uoem thread.

    I went to check out the story, and I am not impressed. All I read was the prologue.

    *”In truth, what she did was far too beautiful and haunting to be described by a word as pedestrian as ‘sing’ however there has not yet been a word invented to adequately tribute the breathtaking aria she performed.”

    –> This is a run-on sentence, and “tribute” is not a verb. Perhaps the word “pay” is missing.

    *”He marveled up at the breathtaking woman…”

    –> That “up” is rather strange. I would delete it.

    *”his stomach was an unforgiving tangle of gears and knots.”

    –> On numerous levels,this metaphor does not work for me. I think gears and knots together result in a mixed metaphor, and I don’t know what to say about unforgiving. An unforgiving tangle?

    –> Overall, I’d strike a lot of the adverbs and adjectives. It’s a style, but not one that I appreciate. I prefer cleaner prose.

    So, I don’t think he’s all that.

    This is fan fiction. I feel like some people need a giant reminder of that.

    I don’t understand why there is such excitement over the fact that male Twilight fan fiction authors exist. Who cares? I’m not going to read your story or not read your story because you are female, male, straight, gay, black, white, or purple–none of that matters. I’m going to read or not read your story because of two things:

    a) Is it good or bad?

    b) Are you a douche or not?

    Fan fiction is a hobby, and I’m not going to waste my free time reading a story by someone who parades around acting like they are the most original, most talented fan fiction author ever to post a story.

    News flash–no fan fiction is truly original.

    I swear, at this point, I honestly cannot say who the bigger scrotanus is.

    Clearly ML has a legit claim to that title as evidenced here today, but then there is SR who has pitched an epic-sized hissy fit and abandoned his flock for over a week now. They’re practically organizing prayer circles for him, not ever pausing to wonder if the whole thing was just a satire and he has, in fact, left them behind. They may be delusional, but they are loyal to his smug ass, and he should be grateful for every single last fangirl, review, and flirtation that was sent his way.

    What the fuck is WRONG with these damn writers lately?

  54. copywho says:

    I too have wondered whether SR’s story UoEM was a satire on FFn. The way he pushed such buttons as Bella getting pregnant and blew out of proportion bad reviews (beret’s anyone). These things got all the devotees fired up on the thread. The very fact that his/her gender became something we discussed added fuel to the fire. Given that so many people took UoEM to heart I really hope that we have not all become players in some greater game for SR, or footnotes in some dissertation on the role of FFn in sub culture.

        No I wasn’t involved in the slore-dom and only posted once on the twilighted thread for UoEM. I always felt like you needed a liberal arts degree to post on there, especially if you dared question if there was going to be a HEA (another button SR pushed). There was something about UoEM that never felt right. Everytime Edward gave some speech about Dante, in the next chapter SR would have a character critique it. It was almost like his supervisor or a reviewer had questioned that take on Dante, so SR showed us in the next chapter that he knew that Edward had made a mistake.

            • WTFchuck? says:

              This is what a friend had to say when I asked her about UoEM and told her about the previous twank…..

              OK. I believe that I am not saying this from any point of jealously about the popularity of a particular author or authors.
              WTF is up with the popularity of UoEM? Seriously! It is a crap story at its core. Former male dope addict can’t let go of the love he he feels for what he believes was a hallucination. Female Subject of hallucination is real and too stupid to realize that reknowned drug addict was high when he kissed her and called her by another name. Yeah, dumb.
              We readers are asked to suspend our disbelief and buy that years later, supposedly brilliant enough to be eligible for Harvard Lit student enrolls under the drug addict/professor and goes unrecognized by same (though was family friend) Whatever.
              Professor who values scholarship above all things & does so clearly & unapologetically to the very last word of the story thiinks with his pecker & sleeps with the student thus jeapoardizing his career & her scholarship. Yeah, I don’t buy it.
              But, BEYOND all that, BEYOND poor plotting and unbelievable characterization that is commonplace, what PISSES MY RIGHT THE FUCK OFF about the popularity of this story is 2 things.
              1)It is pretentious – and I fully believe that “fans” of it feel like they are smarter for reading barely tangentally associated allusions to Dante and works of art. Like, they “get it” – but thye don’t really, because the author is so condescending that he assumes the reader doesn’t know ANY of these references and explains them. THE AUTHOR INSULTS HIS READERS’ INTELLIGENCE CONSISTENTLY & yet he is embraced for it.

              Which brings me to item 2…
              2) It’s misogynistic. Blatantly. The author thinks little of females. It’s one of the reasons that he talks down to his reader base – because he thinks females are stupid. His, supposedly, redeemed male lead in a final chapter still thinks along the lines of “enjoyed the pleasure of a female” – wtf. The professor still withholds sex until he deems it appropriate despite the female’s pleas. And this is when he’s “reformed” & not being a selfish prick. Because it is oh so very loving and supportive to make a unilateral decision that effects both parties.
              This after he disappeared w/o explanation or contact, bought a house for them w/o consulting her, bought wedding rings and wore his w/o even asking her to marry him.
              Why is this story popular? It’s a fucking insulting and pretencious piece if sexist drivel. I would NEVER send SR a fan letter. It, above all other ff I have encountered, infuriates me on all counts.
              I am less insulted by a fic that has Bella experiencing an orgasm during rape as that is at least physically possible though highly unlikely. UoEM is an abomination in that is poses as a love story but preaches until it’s last paragraph that oppression is romantic. It think it is dangerous. I’m not saying people should take life lessons from entertainment…but it sickens me that this is so widely embraced & people don’t see it clearly.

              I know Master of the Universe gets a lot of grief. I understand on some levels. But, when I set back & see the story for what it is – the story of Edward/Fifty but told through Bella’s POV – it has some merit. I think most of the problem with it is that it is “marketed” as a BDSM fic & might convince some niave soul(s) to take that path. It’s not a BDSM fic, it’s an agressive sex fic & the core story is about “un-making” Fifty as a Dom.
              The sequel is boring the piss out of me. Why? Because there is no point with the characters anymore. The original was character-driven. The sequel is plot-driven and it’s not an interesting plot.
              I do think it is a bit more popular than it deserves to be…but so are most blockbuster movies. (ahem)

                Just an awful fic that was so promising in the beginning (I honestly found the academic stuff really interesting at first, but eventually, there was no denying the pretentiousness of it all), but the story just lost anything that appealed to me as each chapter went by.

                GAH! Everything was so demeaning – the cranberry juice, him feeding her, the book bag, etc etc etc. He wouldn’t let her make any decisions, he wouldn’t stop ordering her, she would barely make decisions and when she actually did, they were all based around him. Just nauseating. Yeah. I think this fic was the biggest scam going in the whole twific world. SR fucking played us, and he/she/it did it well.

                  Great analysis from your friend WTFchuck? I love both your points. On the issue of pretentiousness this is very true of UoEM. One of the acusations that was wielded at Dan Brown author of Da Vinci Code was that his story had truths, half truths and myths all rolled up as fact. In UoEM SR assumed all readers couldn’t tell the difference between any of these and lecturered to us his truths. When someone picked up on things that were wrong he allowed a character to critique the previous commentary, giving him a get out of jail card only afforded authors who write in serial mode and not in a book.

                  The biggest myth of UoEM is SR him/herself. We know so little of this person and that is intentional. Time will only tell what SR’s next move is.

    • amaaaazed says:

      oooh… now THAT is interesting, and quite possible. not to mention there are readers in this fandom that get so into it they would fall all over themselves trying to appease someone who could be that self-serving and their very own expense. time will tell.

      • anonymous says:

        It is increasingly obvious that SR and the UoEM are not what people have assumed them to be.

        I’ll admit, I found the story interesting for the first 15 or so chapters.

        And then it got increasingly over the top, increasingly cliched, and increasingly boring.

        The ‘mystery’, if there was ever a mystery, had gone.

        It became pretentious and the way that the characters spoke – it was more about the writer making herself look super-smart, rather than enhancing the characters who are the fan fiction equivalent of dumb and dumber.

        This Bella could easily be the dumbest Bella in fan fiction and the fact that she is meant to be a university educated PhD student is just one example of bad characterization. I can’t decide if that makes it a satire or an elaborate joke.

        The Dante lecture was the turning point – it was totally irrelevant to the the rest of the story and served no purpose in moving things forward. The same goes with the use of Donne’s ‘Flea’ during the carrel scene. It does NOTHING for the story. It shouldn’t be there.

        The planting of tampons and ongoing references to Bella’s cycle were so obviously obvious – this was not good writing, unless it was intentional.

        The over the top virginity scene, the name calling of expensive and elitist products, to say nothing of the over-familiarization with someone like Margaret Atwood, all designed to make the writer look smart and sophisticated and connected regardless of their relevance to the story.

        I never really thought of a conspiracy theory about SR writing a Uni thesis on the fan fiction community or romance literature until I started reading this blog. Certainly starts getting you thinking about stuff.

        I wish to god I’d never reviewed that story or got sucked into the mind-numbing vortex that comes with reading it.

        It is the most over-rated, pretentious, ridiculous story in fandom and that takes some doing, given the competition.

        • copywho says:

          Loved your review Anonymous! Reading it, I realised that I must have skipped portions of the story as I can’t even recall the Donne’s Flea during the carrel scene and don’t get me started on any of the Dante lectures. The pretentious moments you note are spot on. The naming of so many brand names was nauseous. So many stories mention brand names and for the most part it often irrelevant to the story development.

          I like your question whether it was satire or elaborate joke. I think SR would like the former but if we have all been had, then I think it was an elaborate ruse. (Perhaps Twankard needs a poll on this very question, and yes option three would be who cares!).

          We await your next move SR. I’m sure you are working through your game theory analysis at this very moment. Let’s hope you are not in a Prisoner’s Dilemma at the court of Aro.

        • amaaaazed says:

          Yep. I stopped caring about the updates for the story after Bella lost her virginity. It became clear to me that it was about to go into an extended angst mode, so I thought I’d take a break until it got to the end. But that didn’t stop me from hearing all of the wank from that point on. I’m so glad I stopped reading it if you could call what I was doing that. It was incredibly pretentious and dull, and you’re right. The plot development showed a lack of subtlety and skill that if the person were truly uber-intellectual… it would have been seamless, but it wasn’t. And yet, people were so impressed with it because it went on and on and on and on and…. about shit that’s irrelevant, but clearly aimed to advertise to the reader that SR must be really smart. It’s unfortunate that a lot people allow perceived intelligence to steamroll over them because of fancy words or literary/artistic references. People assume that because they’re learning about things (usually without questioning it) the text and the writer must be smarter than them, which is bullshit. It just means you got duped. It started out okay. Then I started to skim read before the updates just sat in my fandom email account.

          I flounced UofEM early on when they had that ridonk argument in front of the whole class, mostly because of the way the story reminded me of a particularly bad telanovela. I just had this sick feeling that whoever was writing it was openly mocking not only anyone in the fandom who writes stories in academic or artistic settings, but also openly mocking s/h/its own readers.

          I have no problem with people not wanting to read something for whatever reason they don’t want to read it, but holy shitballs, why be such an asshole with people who are just trying to enjoy a goddamn story?

          I’ve always hoped that I was wrong, and I still hope I’m wrong, and that whoever is going by the seriously over the top name SR, s/h/it is seriously just that pretentious and meant every precious word of it. If that person or people really did start this as a giant twank, I hope the recent disappearance just stays permanent.

          Everything we thought was a mystery really wasn’t. I appreciate you saying this, as very few do. The mystery turned out to be better than what we were force fed in the end.

          The suggestion that her writing of this as a social experiment makes a lot more sense when we consider that his thread participants came up with many of the scenes that ended up in the story. A poster suggests Dante dolls and what shows up? A few posters discuss corsets on the thread and lo and behold! A couple of posters mention going to Italy and what they did and bam! A poster suggests that the worst thing Tanya could give him would be a sonogram and what shows up in the next chapter? It happens often. This story is a social experiment and the thread wrote a lot of it. The muses played into her hands. SR manipulated them all and they don’t even realize it.

          If she gets credit for this experiment, shouldn’t they? Or his reviewers? They earned part of that grade/paycheck/whatthefuckeverrrrr. Has anyone talked about the readers writing parts of this story yet? Sorry if they did say it already. I expect Anonymuses to show up after the comments we’re making here.

            Isn’t SR so clev-vah, reading all our posts and putting it into the story!

            Looking at the story from a different point-of-view and recognizing that maybe they/us/me got had is sure to rock yer world when you’ve emotionally attached yourself to the story like the slores have.

            SR has said that she/he/whatever is a published writer and a former student of the Sorbonne who travels for work. Can’t decide if that makes SR a PhD candidate doing a thesis on FF or a journalist or a non-fiction writer. Not that it matters. The mystery of SR is probably like the mystery of the story itself.

            And just because the slores aren’t discussing this blog on the forum, doesn’t mean that they aren’t doing it privately. They practically have shares in Skype and g-chat.

            I am trying to be discreet with specific details, or else it would be way too obvious who I was on that fucking thread, but there was an idea I had about WTF was going on with one of the characters that I put quite a bit of thought into. A lot of people did not agree, but I stuck with it, and then randomly, 3 weeks after I first brought it up, it showed up in the fic, and yet it served NO PURPOSE to the story. It was really weird, it seemed really out of place, and it felt like it was added in just to accommodate me. It almost seemed like I was expected to go apeshit over the nod to my theory and kiss SR’s feet. Now, in truth, I do not remember if I ever acknowledged the whole thing on the thread, but I really don’t think I did. It just felt wrong. And from then on, EVERYTHING discussed on that thread went right into the story, with everyone shrieking and *blushing* and *swooning* over every little mention. It felt gross and I honestly wanted to say that it no longer felt like SR was writing the fic. It felt poached.

              Very interesting post Anonymous (our UoEM thread insider)! It is an interesting dilemna that authors in serial fanfiction face. On the one hand authors ask for reviews, but I’ve read interviews from authors where they get dismayed that readers work out a plot point they had planned for upcoming chapters (Icy mentioned this recently). On the other hand, they can use reviewers with a good idea and incorporate that into the story. This can be done to give kudos to a reviewer or alternatively it can be used as it was a better idea then they had planned. The author can then of course just say they planned it all along.

              The one time I posted on the UoEM site was with a theory about a minor character and their role (before the resolution of the tribunal). Looking back on it, that character did play more of a role then even I would have thought the story justified. I now offer my apologies to all the readers of UoEM for the extra 5,000+ words (and epilogue) this character received. I shall die happy knowing Peter has his own HEA. Thanks SR!

              In fairness to SR near the end he/she did acknowledge the early reviewers of the fic. Whether any published story acknowledges how much of the story was actually a collaboration (prompt anyone) is to be seen.

    Wow..this was an eye opening twank indeed….not because I never got past the first few chapters, but indeed the writers behaviour at being twanked.

    Sometimes you think you know people and then..kapow….. you really don’t!

    I must say, at the beginning I was an advocate of the story and was happy to promote it, but as it went on…things changed, people changed and well heck…everything changed.

    I just wanted to say that I lulz’d at all the gifs…..and personally, I don’t want to know who’s ‘behind’ this blog…it’s amazing the traffic it’s been getting and I think it’s been long overdue.

    Twank On & Prosper

    • AnonymousHonesty says:

      Exactly. This has been a long time coming and the ones guilty of it are calling it hate and bullying. But bullying people in reviews, ANs and on Twitter isn’t bad at ALL. Oh reeeeeaaaaalllyyy.

      This is a honest eyeopener and I love it.

    How is he a big name author? His review count begs to differ. Is it a self-proclaimed title? Just wondering.

  57. WantToHumpTwankWard says:

    Meh…. this writer is indeed worthy of a twank but I’m over it….reading the comments are always so much more fun than the original twank!

    Moving right along!

    **Where is that damn TwankWard by the way…I keep missing him…my humping knows no boundaries**

    Here in the hospital, we print fanfics and use to clean all the bullshit that comes from the mouth and brain of our patients.

  59. Nurse of the Twilight Fandon Asylum says:

    And Lisa Rowe says: “fuck your life” – Angelina Jolie, in “Girl Interrupted”.

    I love this film, I worked in that hospital of the movie, all the patients had a good prognostic, unfotunally this is not happening in my new work… 😦

    This post is dedicated to a friend fan of Angelina too.

    Oh, wow. I haven’t read BV (HA, more STD acronyms). I did just remove it from my reading list, however… Everything I could have possibly thought to say (and then a lot of shit I never would have said) has already been posted. So, here’s a visual rendition of the tweets in this post:

    • BOO! says:

      I got rec’d by someone from that list. Woot, how speshul am I? But the bitch pulled her shit to have it “published”. RUDE!

      • WTFchuck? says:

        I have a feeling I might know who you’re talking about … someone who recently pulled is on that list and she didn’t pull to publish, she pulled because her story was in that PDF file with HER NAME ON IT there for crediting her and she took her whole story down with a big ‘fuck you’ letter to the person who did the PDF threatening to ‘take them down’ (coz they’re obviously some kind of big blackmarket business) and then added that she was thinking about publishing it anyway so she HAS to take it down. :-s errrm it was a great story and all but not really something I’d read in a book.

        • twankaholic says:

          Spill.

          • WTFchuck? says:

            Starts with H and ends in R LOL If you visit her profile I’m pretty sure she still has her ‘letter to readers’ up? I haven’t been back since i saw what she wrote and pfffft her.

            I have to laugh seeing one of my closest friends on that list, they can’t stand the guy and think he’s a total creep. I’m tempted to email them and let them know they’re loved dearly by ML and if they don’t look out he’ll be hunting them down to give out a morgasm.

          • I'm not telling says:

            From HappyWanderer and her story “Bad Press”

            “Dear Loyal Readers,

            I do not have the words to fully express the appreciation and love I have for the fandom. Your kind words and support have taken my breath away on more than one occasion since I first published my story on this site. I’d love nothing more than to tell you that the support of the many will always overshadow the damage the few can do; but that’s simply not the case here.

            They say that imitation is the finest form of flattery; but in the case of plagiarism, I don’t believe this to be true. In recent weeks, there have been a couple of cases of “Bad Press” being hijacked by plagiarizing authors on different websites. (Thank you, once again, to the faithful readers that alerted me to this fact. You know who you are.) With the ultimate goal of publishing this story professionally, I’ve decided to copyright my chapters sooner than expected. As a result, I’m forced to pull my story from fanfiction.

            I’m aware that most of you will be displeased with me and my decision. I only hope that the artist within each of you will understand where I’m coming from as I circle the wagons and protect my writing.

            Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

            HW

            PS: If the thieving bastards are reading this, I hope you’re happy and know that I’m coming for you with everything I have. Be afraid.”

            Hey- wait, I downloaded that to my kindle- maybe I still have it…

        • AnonymousHonesty says:

          I know who you’re talking about. I downloaded the PDF to reread and again, it’s not something that’s publishable to me. It wasn’t that good of a story. Then again Omnific might already have their hands on it so we’ll see.

    • Anonymous says:

      I see cosmogirl7481 (self proclaimed Queen Slore. I wish I had a screen cap of her old Author’s page where she claims it’s all about her. She changed that recently) and Cosmoandmarvar listed…those two need to be twanked. Their are attached to the other’s clits. Their asinine A/N conversations are nauseating. They go on and on and on.

      “Marvar: I’m really loving writing this story. I get to use the vocab. words I’ve been holding on to for the 20 years since I took AP English.

      Cosmogirl7481: I really love writing this story because vocabulary words turn me on…almost as much as SR and his elbow sucking. 🙂

      Marvar: Don’t bring other people into this relationship. We already have enough ‘favors’ to do.

      Cosmogirl7481: You were the one who suggested a threesome with Kassiah first.

      Marvar: LOL True.

      Cosmogirl7481: And while we’re on this subject, we totes owe Caren for her fuckawesome pimping of LiMB this week.

      Marvar: Foursome?

      Cosmogirl7481: I think they’d be into that. So, yeah. But what about SR?

      Marvar: You can keep him on the side.

      Cosmogirl7481: Mostly, I just want him to read to me…slowly by the fire.

      Marvar: I know. *jealous*

      Cosmogirl7481: Don’t be jealous. His ass will never be as hot as yours.”

      Another example, this time showing passive aggressive Review bitching:

      “Marvar: I signed up for Chaste Wednesdays, but no one read.

      Cosmogirl7481: Well, that’s not true. Chaste Wednesdays is huge in the Amish Fanfiction community. They really loved the one you did about Emmett, Rose and the barn…raising.

      Marvar: Maybe that’s why I didn’t get any reviews. They couldn’t use the computers.

      Cosmogirl7481: Well, they might not have left reviews, but hand-delivered letters telling you to update soon are so much more personal.”

      Kiss the BNA’s ass, kiss eachothers asses, beg for more reviews (but they admit to hardly ever responding), repeat repeat repeat repeat. The first was the A/N after chapter 3. I flounced after that. When you have to start your chapter with this kind of drivel you probably don’t have much to offer your reader in way of a story anyway. Going back and glancing at the other A/N’s after I flounced shows more of the same.

      Saw ML’s list and rolled my eyes when I saw these particular authors listed. end rant.

      • AnonymousHonesty says:

        I loved the hell out of that story at the beginning because it was funny but it got boring after Alice married hippie Jasper. Now it’s just dragging. The quirks and banter is a snooze now. They need to wrap it up soon. The review count is good so let it go.

        • bitch please says:

          Oh Cosmogirl so needs her own twank. Dig deep there is a lot there to found for the Queen of the Slores. And she pimped MOG so hard. Her pimping is like watching bad porn.

      • amaaaazed says:

        HAHAHAHHAHAA! OMG! PLEASE! I really hope Twankhard covers the excessive weird interviews/simulated conversations in A/N. I once saw a story, where the conversation in the A/N was longer than the actual update. I just wanted to review and say, “You’re not as funny/clever as you think you are, and most readers skip over this shit.”

        • Hey Nonnie Nonnie says:

          I was following the pair of them on twitter but had to stop cause their constant loving on each other made me want to barf – this is a public forum FFS. If you want to carry on like that, email each other.

          • AnonymousHonesty says:

            JFC that’s annoying. I know people flove their betas and prereaders but some go overboard and she’s one of them. I had to stop reading Retal Therapy for many reasons and her ANs and Marvar love was one of them. I get it! I get it! If you weren’t married you’d play for the other team and marry her in a heartbeat but STFU.

            The whole declaring your love every. fucking. time is annoying. Too many do this. Thank them and move the fuck on. We get it, you love them. Say it in an email or call and do some phone loving but SFU.

            • Chocolate Anony Mousse says:

              Thank fuck I’m not the only one who flounced Retail Therapy. I flounced at chapter 10 and came back in the early 30’s. Guess what? No character development, more bullshit flowery writing and it’s clear the girl knows jackshit about retail. Being someone that has been in a similar occupation as Bella in RT, I wanted to scream at the stupidity of her character and the writing.

              Someone please twank her. I can’t stand her and all the fucking love she gets from the fandom. There are way too many people for me to individually throttle.

              • AnonymousHonesty says:

                There needs to be a ricochet throttle twank because some need to be looped together. Don’t know who’d be looped with Morgan though because I don’t think I’ve seen someone show their ass like THAT ever in this fandom.

              • yomama says:

                You mean you didn’t flove Darcyward **GAG**

                • Chocolate Anony Mousse says:

                  Yeah…”Darcyward”? GMAFB. If that man existed in real life, he’d be deemed gay or severe attachment issues. She can’t write for shit and needs to put out another story like I need a hole in the head.

                  • Anon says:

                    That Edward barely deserved the nickname given to him. I did like that story though.

                    I started reading her latest story and immediately wondered what KiyaRaven (Grasping Darkness) thinks of the similarities.

                    • Chocolate Anony Mousse says:

                      *Raises eyebrow* Oh really? That would be interesting, but I have no idea what her story is about. I adore anything by Kiya and I love Grasping Darkness.

  62. I'm not telling says:

    I would say since squalloogal(0) hasn’t written anything- she doesn’t fall under the “author” category…but hey- there a a couple peeps on that list I like and who aren’t ego-maniacs! They didn’t ask to be put on his list! *whispers*I may or may not be on that list!

  63. WTFchuck? says:

    You get a signed copy of ML’s book one (this includes the long list of disclaimers seen here in his disclaimer tab http://sites.google.com/site/bellaparole/home/things-mr-locklear-does-not-own) , included is a CD with all the original music and a pull out of all the original artwork.

    Aren’t you totes excited about that? And because i’m feeling generous, I will chuck in an ML blow up doll to make those morgasms more RL like 😉

    • amaaaazed says:

      That is the dumbest link I’ve ever clicked on.

      Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. Stupid rumours (or should I just go ahead say complete falsities?) and fans that go gah gah for them gives people who actually like R/K a bad name. Although I don’t even know any ~shippers who wouldn’t laugh at that story alongside Nonstens and IDGAFstens, tbh. But then again, I don’t know any of the Crazy Robstens. They could be squeeing on AIM right now.

      • WTFchuck? says:

        yer, it’s slightly crazy. Almost as bad as Robert being pregnant as one tabloid wrote last year?
        I’m thinking that Robsten that was twanked for photo leakage? Sounds crazy enough to be her idea.

        • amaaaazed says:

          The matching tattoos were what really made me laugh. I mean, obviously I don’t know the guy, but the image of Rob getting a tattoo … it’s almost as funny as Edward covered in tattoos.

          Tattwards are so hysterical to me. I’ve read some, but I just try my hardest to ignore all the tattoo gushing.

    I am tempted to do something ultra twank-worthy, just so we can have a new entry on this blog.

  69. WrongJustWrong says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but this Twank was about MorganLocklear, not Sleepyval or Gisellelx, right? How in the hell did this morph into bashing them?

    • Anon says:

      You’re kidding, right? Judging by the amount of comments it’s impossible to not make connections to other shit in the fandom. It’s the brilliance of this blog. Twankhard gives us a well explained example and we can all respond with scores of others, all related by common threads of facts and observations. The cycle of refreshing truth continues as more is discussed. The problem is?

      evolution?

  70. *singing the Doug themesong* says:

    Yes, he’s an asshole…but to be fair, he’s a man and can’t help it. lol

    what’s up with comment moderating again. Not that I mind- just wondering why

  72. Anonymous says:

    So is everything over now? No more twanks? I love finding out about crazy, twanking people.
