Let's Discuss: Twilight Fanfiction That Became Famous

I was browsing through my all time favorites bookshelf on Goodreads and I noticed something funny-- two of my most absolute favorite series were originally written as Twilight fanfiction.

I started looking up other popular Twilight fanfiction and fanfiction that had become published and--goodness!--there seems to be a treasure trove of books to be read! I never knew!



My Twilight Fanfic Faves

Fifty Shades of Grey
The infamously dubbed "mommy porn" started off as Twilight fan-fiction! Long before EL James became famous for herstory of BDSM connoisseur Christian and innocent Anastasia in Fifty Shades of Grey, she was writing Masters of the Universe--Edward and Bella fan-fiction--under the pseudonym Snowqueen Icedragon.




 

Dusty
I didn't think it was possible, but this bit of fan-fic has actually surpassed Twilight as a top fave of mine. I think about Dusty all the time. I think this story will stay with me for the rest of my life. But, like Fifty Shades, Dusty and Bliss weren't always so. They were originally written as drug-addicted Edward and so-deep-in-love Bliss. Before they were known as Mary and Sarah Elizabeth, you could find them on fanfiction.net under the pseudonyms YellowBella, TeamBella23, and YellowGlue.




Other Famous Twilight Fanfic


Gabriel's Inferno
I have seen this everywhere and it is rated highly! Apparently, before Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard came along, it was written as Twilight fanfic called The University of Edward Masen under the pen name Sebastian Robichaud.





Beautiful Bastard
Another Twilight based series that has been rated highly! Beautiful Bastard by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings used to be The Office by Christina Lauren.
(Note: The series was published under their fanfiction pen name: Christina Lauren.)
