Anonymous said: hi, i was looking at your dropbox and i noticed that access to a lot of downloads has apparently been disabled?
Hello! Firstly, sorry about that! Dropbox has changed the way they share folders making it more about sharing them with individuals than with the public.
For that reason, I have moved everything onto a Google Drive. Everything should work fine from there.
Secondly, thank you for bringing that to my attention. :)
Anonymous said: Hi, I haven't known Tumfs for a long time but I think she (?) used to published skins fics on fanfiction net. Would you happen to know if there are any other skins fic besides the ones up on AO3? Thanks!
I think she did, yes. However, I never really have been a part of the Skins fandom (mainly because I haven’t had a chance to watch it), so I can’t say for sure because I was never really concerned with those fics. I do remember TMF taking down some Skins fics for very specific reasons when she “left” the Skins fandom, but it’s a very vague memory, so I have assume what’s on AO3 is all the fic that there is. If not, maybe a follower can help you out. :)
Anonymous said: re: AoCC -- there was never talk re: legal repercussions for QiF's actions. the fic was looking at the *moral* implications of the deception Quinn committed (with Finn's blessing, initially) -- and on how much intent does, or should, matter in judging whether Quinn's choices were right/wrong. anyway, actual spoilers: [cont]
Shelby & Beth return, causing Rachel to freak out and QiF to click with her in ways Finn could not have; FiQ comes out to Judy, Santana becomes a real friend to Q; post-swap Rachel finally realizes what was going on, punches Quinn, says she never wants to see her again; Quinn either wants to or tries to kill herself again, Sam talks her through it; the end was just flat-out depressing for all parties. (this was all posted in an outline on tumblr at some point btw!)
Fantastic! Thank you for sharing what you remember. :)
I remember that outline and that’s where most of what I remember came from, but, as we can see, I couldn’t remember all of it. Now, if only someone had saved that outline in its entirety….dang.
Thank you again!
Anonymous said: the original 'and isn't this' was written sometime in june or july, i think. i don't know if it was ever posted on ffnet or just to tumblr. the rewrite took place in nov/dec 2011.
Thank you for filling in the blanks! Hope that helps the other anon. :)
Anonymous said: hello! i was wondering if you or the followers have any idea when "these strange steps" was originally published on FF (or even on tumfs tumblr, since i wasn't aware of the work back then)
Hello! I am going to try to answer your question.
I started following TMF back in late 2011, and she was then in the middle of rewriting And isn’t this exactly where you like me, which would later become These Strange Steps. She published the rewrite as she wrote it, so it started coming to FF in mid to late 2011.
However, if you are asking about its first form, And isn’t this exactly where you like me, I will have to defer to my followers because I wasn’t following TMF at that time.
Hope that helps!
Anonymous said: Hi there! Thank you for putting up tumfs' work! Could you re-upload the link for "tmf: on Quinn & stripping", please?
Well, you are welcome! I sure can fix that link! For some reason the link under the Works section stopped working, but the document was always in the Dropbox. Weird. Anyway, I fixed the page, so you can access it from that link, straight from the Dropbox, or here. Enjoy!

Anonymous said: Hi, is there a full link to a thousand julys? Or is it just 5 chapters? :(
It’s only five chapters, and I don’t even think I have chapter 4. :(
The only thing I could offer you is the story outline here.
Anonymous said: Thanks for answering. Inhibitions anon here. I had high hopes for that, being a fan of YA lit but not of the usual het romances. I was hoping that even if she left fandom, she'd continue on that. Though, as much as I did like it when I first read it, I think she could have gotten rid of much of the first pages of solid exposition by just starting the story earlier and explaining things as her character met them.
I think what we got as “Chapter 1” is probably the roughest of rough drafts. When she posted original stuff on her blog, it was more to test the waters than anything. If Inhibitions is being continued and/or possibly published, chances are the first chapter is drastically different.
Anonymous said: Hey, do you remember the couple of chapters of an original YA thing TMF was working on? Kids at a school for the superpowered, only they don't know it because the staff's been keeping them suppressed with meds? And the main girl had a crush on another chick who was telepathic? Do you know what happened to that?
I remember this distinctly, yes. I think part of it is in the dropbox, under Inhibitions, but it’s only the first chapter. I know she had more stuff on her blog, but I don’t think anyone saved it.
