The Lost History of Fifty Shades of Grey takes a closer look at Master of the Universe, the Twilight BDSM AU that was later pulled to publish as Fifty Shades of Grey.

This erotica bestseller began as a work of Twilight fan fiction called Master of the Universe, earning a massive fan fiction following years before the book deal. Most traces of this fan fiction history have been removed from the Internet. Using the Wayback Machine, we were able to take snapshots from James’ old work–getting a peek into the book’s previous incarnation as an X-rated version of the Twilight story.

The article includes screencaps of story banners and the website, a link to a fic trailer and more interesting information about the the Twilight fanfic that started it all.
