Commemorating One Year at Grey House

One year ago, on February 17th, 2012, Grey House (Fifty Shades of Grey on Twitter) was established. It’s rather difficult to believe that this milestone is upon us. It would not be the remarkable experience that it is without your contribution and support, which we value beyond measure. We are most honored by you, our followers.

The world of Fifty Shades could only be brought to life by re-telling Christian and Ana’s story, beginning with Fifty Shades of Grey, continuing onto Fifty Shades Darker and currently, Fifty Shades Freed. Over the course of time, we have expanded, extracting and bringing to life events that might be otherwise unexplored.

We reminisce with pride on what we have brought to you to date. Our kindest regards and deepest gratitude as we embark on another year.

Sincerely,

Grey House

Through good times and in bad, from this moment on…

Dear Followers,

We have reached a significant milestone in our story with with the conclusion of Fifty Shades Darker. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing us to…*smirks* dominate your timelines. To those of you who are new in joining us, welcome to our world. Thank you to all who have been with us from the beginning and who have followed along the way. We are profoundly grateful for your continuous support.

But we’re not finished with you yet.

Got your attention now, haven’t I?…*eyes imperceptibly narrowing* Answer me. Good. Please join us as we move into Fifty Shades Freed; the next chapter of  Ana and Christian’s lives on December 8th, 2012. We look forward to your attendance.

Sincerest thanks from everyone here at Grey House

Ana’s Accepted The Bling, Let’s Help Her Celebrate One Last Fling…

After arduous, though amorous negotiations, Christian Grey has consented to allow Kate to throw her best friend a bachelorette party and you’re all invited! Come, help celebrate Ana‘s one last fling as a single woman. Knowing Kate, she’ll have a few surprises up her sleeve.

@AnaRSteele *Sliding out of Audi in front of Columbia Tower, giving @KateKavanagh_ an appreciative smile* Thanks again for putting this party together.

@KateKavanagh_*Smooths down dress. Puts arm lovingly around @AnaRSteele* Of course! You deserve it!

@AnaRSteele *Eyeing @KateKavanagh_ as we cross the marble floor of the lobby* You didn’t let this get too out of hand, did you?
@KateKavanagh_ @AnaRSteele *Innocently bats eyes, fake shocked expression* Of course not! Only a select few, as promised. *crosses fingers behind back*
@AnaRSteele *Stepping into elevator, blushing at the memory of @ChristianTGreypulling me into the corner, holding me close as his fingers … *
@AnaRSteele *My salacious memories halted as the doors to the elevator slide open at the 76th floor, revealing @MileHighClubGEH packed with guests.*
‏@AnaRSteele*Mouth gaping open, turning to find a beaming @KateKavanagh_ * THIS is just a few close friends?!
‏@KateKavanagh_*Pulling @AnaRSteele into a hug* Surprise! *Ignoring her shock, turning and beaming at the large turnout.*
@AnaRSteele *Wanting to protest, but seeing how happy @KateKavanagh_ is, how much planning this party has meant to her, and holding my tongue.*

@AnaRSteele *Resisting the urge to roll my eyes, humoring @MiaGrey_ and slipping the satin sash over my head* Thanks, Mia.
@MiaGrey_*Plopping http://twitpic.com/bds20n  on @AnaRSteele’s head* Oh , look at you! *fanning eyes* Not going to cry, too much time spent on this make-up
@AnaRSteele *Scanning the room. So many familiar faces,such extravagant decorations. Holy cow, even a DJ set up on the far side of an LED dance floor!*
@MiaGrey_*whispering conspiratorially to @KateKavanagh_* Is everything set for later?
@KateKavanagh_*nodding @MiaGrey_, finger to lips, winking* *grabbing two cosmos from passing waiter*

‏@KateKavanagh_ *Smiling mischievously at the sight of the hunky @StripperMike sauntering in the club looking all official and under the radar.*

@StripperMike *Shoulders rolling, side stepping through the throng of women* Excuse me, we’ve been getting reports of a rowdy group up here.
‏@StripperMike Everyone sit down. Take a seat *resting my hands on my belt* We’re going to be here for a while.
‏@StripperMike *Heading straight for the woman in a make-shift veil* You don’t have anything sharp I can stick myself with, do you? @AnaRSteele
@AnaRSteele *Momentary panic as officer approaches. Getting a closer look, noticing he’s not carrying a gun and realizing what Kate’s done.* Oh, no….
‏@StripperMike *cocking a grin* Good, because I do. *Ripping open my shirt, backing@AnaRSteele down into the nearest chair*
@KateKavanagh_Wooo hooo! *Running up to @AnaRSteele shoving a wad of singles in her hand* Go, Ana!
‏@StripperMike *Lazily turning around to face the crowd of beautiful ladies, winking @SweetKimmyyGirl, reaching down and tearing away my pants.*
@StripperMike *Straddling the bride-to-be, gyrating my hips, stomach muscles flexing and releasing with each move.* @AnaRSteele
@AnaRSteele *Knowing my face is turning as red as the playroom walls, trying not to stare at the enormous satin bulge being thrust towards me.*
@StripperMike Got yourself a handful there, little lady, well almost, tuck one of them hands on in there.*rolling my hips* Drop a single. @AnaRSteele
@AnaRSteele *Giving in to the chanting crowd and tucking a dollar bill inside the tiny scrap of material @StripperMike calls a costume.*
@ChristianTGrey *Malevolent stare penetrating across the room, muscles tightening with rage at this fucking guy’s cock shoved in my fiance’s face.*
@ChristianTGrey *Vibrating with barely restrained violence, acting on impulse and stalking in long determined steps to @AnaRSteele*
@ChristianTGrey *Locking my fist at the back of @StripperMike’s throat and yanking the bastard back, sending him stumbling.*
@ChristianTGrey *Glaring @AnaRSteele, my pulse throbbing viciously* This would be when you tell me what the fuck you are doing, Anastasia?
@AnaRSteele *Oh shit!* Christian, what are you doing here? *The sight of@LukeSawyerGEH standing behind @ChristianTGrey telling me all I need to know.*
@KateKavanagh_ *Marching up, the scene on full display* @ChristianTGrey Get a grip, Grey. Just showing the bride a good –
@ChristianTGrey *In a haze of warped anger narrowing my eyes and cutting@KateKavanagh_ off * Stay out of this, Katherine. You’ve done enough.
 ‏@AnaRSteele *Watching @ChristianTGrey and @KateKavanagh_ locked in a venomous glare. Instinctively stepping between them. * Let me handle this, Kate.
@MiaGrey_*Darting forward all to-the-rescue like and stopping along side@ChristianTGrey* Christian, this is all in good fun. I mean, seriously.
@ChristianTGrey *Shifting my icy stare over to @MiaGrey_ effectively silencing her ill conceived logic.*
@ChristianTGrey@AnaRSteele *Running a hand through my hair, the muscle working in my jaw* Get your things. We’re leaving.
@AnaRSteele Don’t be ridiculous, Christian, the party has barely gotten started.@ChristianTGrey
@ChristianTGrey @AnaRSteele *snapping* Now, Anastasia. *holding out my arm in the general direction of the exit.*
@AnaRSteele *Blinking, @ChristianTGrey’s harsh tone making me feel like an errant child but not wanting to cause any more of a scene.* Okay.
‏@AnaRSteele *Turning to find @KateKavanagh_ holding my purse and coat. Taking them from her, offering a half-hearted smile and mouthing* Sorry.
@KateKavanagh_ *Smiling apologetically @AnaRSteele* No, I’m sorry. Call me later when you have a *glancing @ChristianTGrey* free moment.
@ChristianTGrey *My hand firmly cupping @AnaRSteele’s elbow, guiding her through@MileHighClubGEH and into a waiting elevator.*
@KateKavanagh_ *Texting @ElliotGrey_* Looks like I’ll be home earlier than I thought. I’ll explain Laters. Kate.*send*
@StripperMike *Throwing an arm around @Scorpio_Caro and the other around@LyMoZe* Let me show you ladies what I do for a twenty. *grinning*
 ‏@AnaRSteele *Enduring an excruciatingly silent car ride, my anger toward@ChristianTGrey’s thermonuclear reaction growing with each passing mile.*
