Written Words of an Artist

… Soo it’s 5am and I’m nearly finished with book 2 of the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy and I have “Your Call” by Secondhand Serenade on repeat for the last couple hours….

I skip over a lot of the sex scenes cause quite frankly it’s not my tango. However I love the interaction between Christian and Ana and it’s always the heart wrenching pain between them that I enjoy reading about. 

It’s really not as bad as people complain about. Yes the writing is horrifyingly terrible and it really feels like it was written by a 15 year old. However if you remove all the sex and the parts where he calls her “baby” it’s just such a beautiful heart wrenchingingly (is that a word?) disastrous love story. It reminds me a lot of the works by the Bronte Sisters.

I just don’t understand how all the sex scenes seem like it was written by a teenanger “ohh babby! give it to me baby!” but all the terribly tragic parts are just so beautifully written. My heart breaks every time Christian or Ana’s heart breaks. I gasp for air and hold my breath every time one of them cries… I panic along with Christian every time he panics.. it’s just so real to me sometimes…  

(I am praying that the movie will do the characters justice by invoking the pain in both characters as realistic as the book makes it!) 

On a side note: wow music is such a big part to this book and I had no idea. I’m so excited for the movie soundtrack! I got a little too excited when I finally reached the part where Ana plays Beyonce’s Crazy in Love in the book. THE TRAILER SOUNDTRACK FINALLY MAKES SENSE! HAHA

On another side note: I can finally understand why the BDSM community hates this book now…. 

I thought “Your Call” was such a fitting background song to read this trilogy to… 

Stripped and pollished, I am new, I am fresh
I am feeling so ambitious, you and me, flesh to flesh
Cause every breath that you will take
When you are sitting next to me
Will bring life into my deepest hopes, What’s your fantasy?
(What’s your, what’s your…)

Cause I was born to tell you I love you
And I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight

I will be wild. I will be brutal. I will encircle you and conquer you. I will be more powerful than your boats and your swords and your blood lust. I will be inevitable.

Memories are dangerous things. You turn them over and over, until you know every touch and corner, but still you’ll find an edge to cut you.

Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit.
