Sad that we missed out on it this V-Day, but the Vermont Teddy Bear Company manufactured a bear inspired by Christian Grey from the best-selling BDSM novel Fifty Shades of Grey. As the ad copy explained, “Dominate Valentine’s Day this year. Surprise the one you can’t get enough of with this irresistible Bear made with smoky fur and smoldering blue eyes. He wears a handsome grey suit with silver tie, and even comes complete with a mask and a pair of handcuffs. He’s more than 50 shades of fun, and your Valentine can’t help but submit to loving him. ” WHY!?!

We love love love love Victoria Schwab’s amazing Archived series (which began with The Archived and continued with The Unbound), but as she admitted on her Tumblr, Disney Hyperion is not too sure if they’re going to keep publishing the series for financial reasons. Which would be devastating for multiple reasons. As she explained, “Right now, the future of THE ARCHIVED series is uncertain, not in my heart, but at the publisher … And while I’ve tried to make every book capable of standing on its own, the story isn’t supposed to end here … If the story stops, it won’t be my choice. If the story stops, I will do my utmost to find the time/way/strength to write it anyway and release it another way, but right now, I am still holding on to hope.” You can read her full comments over on her Tumblr.
