Q:Hi again! I'm the one who sent you the summer prompt. I'm so glad you liked it. First chapter is unbelieveable. Thank you!!! My name is Aga and I sent it as an anonymous just because I don't have my own tumblr:) but I have yours in my favorites so I know what's happening in MMFD world:) And when I recently was recalling my own small "Tunisia love story" i thought it would be a nice MMFD fanfic. So thank you one more time! I'm a huge fun of your work! Can't wait for more! Greetings!
Hey, thanks, Aga! (I really like your name!) The only way I can respond is to publish, hope you don’t mind. If you can survive without your own tumblr, I say DO IT! I’m an addict. Glad I can be one of your sources of MMFD news and fics, though!
I’m so happy you liked Chapter 1! I’ve written a bunch of chapter 2, but have a lot yet to do, and I think Chapter 3 will take me a while to write. So, I’m trying to pace myself a bit, even though I generally feel like as soon as I finish something I need to put it out there, like purging the system.
Thanks again, m’dear!
Fall (Part 5/?)
So the other day, my computer lovingly presented me with the blue screen of DOOM. It freaked me out, so I tried to fix everything, blah blah blah, and here we are! Fall. Chapter 5. Booyah.
I hope you all enjoy! This is a beast of a chapter with 18k words. Even though it’s not as dramatic as some others, I think this was my favorite to write so far. Kind of a bright spot in Rae’s life, even if she doesn’t realize it.
My eyes have crossed from reading over this so many times, so if there’s anything wrong, I don’t care at the moment.

To be alone
Cannot take me home
This darkest night
On my own
Fades the calls
You cannot take me home
I sit at my desk and snap my pen against the top of it as I stare at the clock above the door. Just ten minutes until noon. Quinn had agreed to drive me to the hospital at lunch, and I want it to go quickly. Of course, she’d not answered me for a full minute as she looked me over. Her eyes had covered my entire body with a roving stare and just thinking about it now makes me blush.
“Rae, you look smokin’ hot.”
I had laughed, embarrassed, and brushed my hair away from my forehead.
“I had no idea I looked so bad most of the time.”
“Shut up, you always look nice. But today you look completely bangable. I feel like a bum standing next to you.”
Her outfit of a long skirt, layered toward the bottom with a bold print of large pink and red roses, and a fitted flowy black blouse was hardly bum attire. She wore a thick brown woven belt where they fabrics met and a long brown beaded necklace that reached her midsection. Today, she’d gone with thick contrasting colored bracelets that banged together as she moved her arms.
In short, she looked gorgeous.
“Please Quinn. You look like a million bucks.”
She’d just waved me off like usual and played with my hair. The bun I’d made in the back let the curls fall like a waterfall down my neck and cheeks. Even though I had tried to stop it, a small feeling of self-confidence blossomed at her praise.
This fic is so engrossing and nerve-wracking! And your tag about nothing good till the end … *dread washes over me* But I’ll keep reading, because important things are tough.
*takes a deep breath* I will not let this fictional character ruin me
failed step one
YOU AND ME BOTH idontcareifyoudontbelieveme YOU AND ME BOTH
but the thing is Finn doesn’t exist, there are no Finns that want a Rae, it’s just a story
I think you’re wrong. Finn doesn’t exist because he’s a fictional character, but there are many men out there who have Finn’s sensibility.
If we all keep looking for a guy that looks like Nico Mirallegro, it’s not gonna happen. It’s not how they look, it’s how they feel and how they make you feel.
And, there are sooo many couples with a super fit boy and a curvy lady, and they’re not stories, they’re as real as you and me.
By saying it’s just a story, we’re accepting that if you don’t look like the girl on the cover of Cosmo, then you’re not worth it, and that’s not true. Not even the girls on the cover of Cosmo look like the girls on the cover of Cosmo.
So well said! I bolded my favorite sentence, but this is a mine full of gold.
jesus fucking christ*Leonardo DiCaprio voice* GOD DAMN IT SON OF A BITCH
What’s he doing to that watermelon? Ever heard of a knife?
Enough now. This shit has got to stop. You’ve got an hour. Okay two, but then… it’s over. Unless you want to do it some more.
Dammmn that tan *lethal wound*
Those short shorts *dead*
Why is he putting something in his mouth? *dead dead dead*
Mad Spaced - Chapter 9 - “Something to Say”
A/N: Gah. You guys. This has been a stupidly busy time. I’ve had houseguests all week. Family members and an old friend; people I totally love and even like, but it’s too long. And I have to reapply for my job, for various reasons, so I’ve been reworking my resume and these essay-type things I have to write for the application. BLERG.
However, I’ve been writing this (and a fun prompt I got! AND making notes for Chapter 15 of the 1930 AU) whenever I get a spare moment from making sure everyone is cool/entertained/not actively pissed off. (I love having people over, but it also drives me crazy, and I didn’t really want it to be for an entire week this time.)
I know, you guys don’t really care WHY this took me longer than I wanted, but thanks for listening, anyway. :) Without further ado …
(Okay, maybe a tiny bit further ado!

Finn chewed his cereal as he raptly watched Rae scurry between the loo and her room. Her hair was thrown up in to a towel and she wore her sturdy pastel striped robe. She left her door open just a crack so she could be heard as she shouted, “I couldn’t sleep for thinkin’ of what I should wear, and what I should say … how I should act! And I still don’t know!”
“You’ll be fine!” Finn shouted back, between mouthfuls.
“You don’t know that! I don’t know if I’ve EVER been fine, to be painfully honest.”
Finn furrowed his brow. “You’re—well, how about ‘fine enough’? Fine is a surprisingly hard state of being to achieve.”
“And even harder to maintain!” Rae giggled to herself.
She came out in a strange linen pantsuit that made her look like a cross between a dowager and an explorer. Seeing Finn’s face, Rae winced. “Too … what? Too frumpy, right?”
Finn tipped his head from side to side a few times, not unlike a metronome, and then nodded. “I think it might be. You look like Thor Heyerdahl. All you need is a pith helmet to complete the look.”
“Okay, I’m changin’!” Rae shouted as she headed back into her room. “That is a VERY obscure reference, by the way.”
The amazing moment of pure glee when you check your activity for one last time at 4am and you’ve been tagged on this beauty. Re-read this today and just… let the gifs speak for me.
Oh boy, such praise! SO MANY GIFS AND SO MANY CAPS!!! THANK YOU!
ch1darkcy: Shawna my loveeee… hahaha, You got me all excited/worried with 3 little (big) things 1) I love how Finn cannot help himself from doing and saying stuff, so much that even “clueless” Rae is noticing now. The tshirt thing, Rae looking at her closet and most importantly when he says he likes the view he has ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh smooth hahahah loved it!!!!! 2) WHY RAEEEE?!?!!? I mean noooo I don’t like what she said at the end of her interview, I’m worried for her omg! no no nono… 3) lol the end, ok, I gotta admit I didn’t expect that pairing lol lol lol can’t wait to see what’s going on there! 4) did I tell you about how I love Finn drooling for Rae?! :D
So happy with this fic :D:D:D:D
I know! Rae is so oblivious and self-deprecating. FINN HAS HIS WORK CUT OUT FOR HIM. And I’ve been subtly building Archie and Chop up in my mind (maybe I didn’t give as many clues as I could have …) Thaaaaanks for your amazing comment’ry, as usual! xo
thisissomefreshbullshit: That ending with Archie and Chop..YASSS. Wow this chapter was wonderful, as always. The cuteness levels between Rae and Finn in this fic are getting too damn high, so much so that I can’t control the ever-present grin spread across my face, nor my stupid happy dancing/arm flailing that occurs whenever something remotely adorable happens between those two dickheads. I really love the underlying comfort they feel with each other, even though they may have awkward, nervous or embarrassing moments, they are still just comfortable with one another, and it warms my cold dead heart. I’m insanely excited for the next chapter and some Charchie!!
I love how much you love this fic, m’dear! Seriously, thank you!!!
lametwentysomething: Still haven’t watched Spaced, but still love this fic, ha. Can you tag me, please?
Yes, of course! I’m sorry, I’m bad about tagging/mentions. Maybe I should do one of those all-encompassing, who-wants-to-be-‘tagged’-for-all-time posts? I’m pleased that people who haven’t watched the show are still finding it fun! :D
