Oooh, good question!
Has anybody done it?
Rachel’s coming out
Ok, so I’m a little slow on the uptake and never read this before today, but it just occurred to me that the tmf_Drabble4 piece is a prequel drabble on how Rachel came out in TSS. How did I not know this?
Anonymous said: Hi there, what is the name to the TSS sequel. I'm kind of looking blind in the drop box. Thanks
There is not a direct sequel to TSS. However, there is Psychology of the Unconscious, which is more of a spin-off/different point of view than a sequel.
You may also be thinking of the original form of TSS, And Isn’t This Exactly Where You’d Like Me, which is different from TSS in several ways, but the original concept—Rachel discovers that Quinn is a stripper—is the same.
Hope this helps!

Nope. That’s why Faberry post-TSS is so interesting to discuss. It ends in such an ambiguous way, anybody’s interpretation is a good one.
I will, however, offer you this. Consider it an alternate perspective on TSS.
So remember when TMF put that preview to the sequel of TSS on her tumblr?
You can now find it in the Tumfslove dropbox. Here.
Thanks again to the lovely seriouslyaskew!
I’ll put a permanent link in the Works section shortly.
martellarianne said: That is a good point, but I think maybe Rachel dislikes asparagus because, well, she IS a vegan, and with so many vegetables on earth, surely there's one she doesn't like? Even people who love meat (like me) have certain meats that just aren't appealing to them. I, for one, do not like ham. It's tolerable, sometimes, but most times (especially when it's cold) I would prefer to eat something else.
This is a very valid point.
I suppose the antagonist in Fuck Asparagus: The Musical would have to adore asparagus above all other vegetables.
martellarianne said: i personally do not like asparagus. i used to, when i was a kid, because my mom told me they were trees. but i think that quinn and rachel dislike asparagus because it's nasty and it has nothing on artichoke!!
While I agree that artichokes are amazing, I am also a huge fan of asparagus. I suppose I find it odd that Rachel would dislike any vegetable because of her vegan lifestyle. I mean, of course, vegans can like and dislike whatever they want, but generally all vegetables are welcomed with open arms.
Here’s a download to “and isn’t this exactly where you’d like me”
I forgot that I had downloaded it to my phone a while ago and I just now found it. Enjoy! :)
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This will appear on the Works page soon. :)
fallintolife said: two things: first, my favorite line of TSS is and always will be, "are you fucking the onion?" and second, in regards to whether or not Faberry will last post-TSS, I don't have enough information to confidently say. I feel as though we needed to see more of them. they had been together less than a year, and while they made it separately through huge stresses, those weren't as a couple, which is the real test.
What a classic line! TMF, a true genius. :)
It’s true—the majority of the crises Quinn and Rachel go through in the story are not together as a couple, but as separate parties. Both parties provide support, but they are not acting as a conventional unit. It does call into question whether or not they would be capable of overcoming obstacles as such. Interesting indeed.
Anonymous said: ... I actually called that out (Rachel's unreliability) in a review back when the story was still in progress. :P But Quinn, to anyone who has been through similar life experiences that would make them afraid to verbalize feelings, sends some very LOUD signals that she cares, even early in the story, or at least that's how I felt.
Well, yay for being an astute reader :)
I agree. Quinn’s cautious when something is important to her. The more she cares, the more cautious she is—essentially the polar opposite of Rachel’s reactions.
