Thank you so much for sharing this. :)

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!
Hey! Did Tumfs ever write about what might have happened in AoCC? I just finished rereading it and wow it left off at really tense time. I remember reading that she initially intended to have 3 parts to the story, but I’m hazy on any/all details (if there were details)…
This post is where I racked my brain for any details I could recall about AoCC and it’s proposed sequel(s). It’s not much, so if you can remember anything more or different, let me know.

I'm also annoyed at myself for not saving excerpts from tmf's tumblr about Quinn and Finn after they swapped back. I have about 30 or 40 deadlinks of various excerpts/oneshots. Useless now... Anyway, just the way things are :)
I know, right? That universe was so expansive and detailed, and despite having a good chunk of AoCC, I really think we only have a fraction of what TMF had developed—including but certainly not limited to the stuff she had published through her tumblr.
It’s funny though. The one thing I’ve learned through running this blog is that TMF’s work could be anywhere. Eventually someone who reads this very post may have actually saved all of those excerpts and oneshots, and eventually they may shoot me an email or an ask with download links. I mean, it’s happened on more than one occasion with other works—why not AoCC?
In the meantime…I know those feels, bro.

Okay. Here’s my thing about TMF:
Read anything and everything she has written. All of it.
Like you, I started out with TSS. Naturally, it fucking blew my mind. Then I read part of AoCC. I stopped mainly because she had started to pick it up again and I wanted to read it when it was complete, but then she stopped and now I can’t finish it because….SAD. Then I read IBTTRY, and all of the shorter stories. Every single one blew my mind.
Okay, and then I started this blog. And people were waxing and waning about ECFC. Because I had never been a fan of Pezberry, I had skipped that one. However, at this point I realized that if I was going to moderate a TMF blog, then it was imperative that I read ECFC (otherwise known as the Pezberry Epic).
Best decision of my [fandom] life. Everyone needs to read that story. People who don’t even like Glee need to read that story. In fact, I have forced several friends who don’t like fanfiction and/or Glee to read ECFC, and they have admitted that they got a lot out of it.
So, yes, you should read ECFC.
Also, yes, you should read AoCC. It is equally as amazing as ECFC. However, understand that the work is incomplete. I mean, it’s still 65 chapters long, but the story itself remains unfinished, and will remain as such forever. (SAD).
The only thing of TMF’s I haven’t read is the Intersex Trilogy because…reasons, but it is only my list and I am quite confident that it will be just as well written and executed as every other story in her body of work.
AoCC through chapter 65 now in the dropbox.
Anonymous said: Would you mind telling us what exactly are the missing TMF works? I may have a lot of files from the author, but they may be the ones that are still available on archiveofourown. thanks! awesome tumblr, btw.
Well, as far as I know, the only things TMF deleted were things she never intended on finishing, so that consists of The Mating Game (Part 11 of ECFC), Assured of Certain Certainties, Greet Death, A Thousand Julys (Sequel to IBTTRY) and that Quinntana story she was messing around with.
We have links posted for The Mating Game and AoCC (up to Chapter 64), so now we are only missing Greet Death, A Thousand Julys, and the Quinntana story. Truth be told, however, I’m pretty resigned to never finding A Thousand Julys because that was deleted more than a year ago. I would be really surprised if anyone has that. It should also be noted that there are more than 65 chapters of AoCC floating around the internet. The link, although extensive and awesome because it’s a pdf, only goes up to 64.
So if you have any part of the works we don’t have, or if you have anything to add to what we already have of AoCC, sharing would be very much appreciated! :)

Well, see, that clears everything up. Bearing that in mind, I would not feel comfortable circulating download links of AoCC or any of the other unfinished works.
