Hi All! 

An update: Chapter One of The Roundabout is on track to post early next week. Below is a master list of links to The Station for anyone who needs to catch-up before the sequel goes live.

The Station

The summer…

Coming Soon: The Roundabout

Set 10 years after The Station, Finn and Rae are faced with a major life change prompting them to reconsider what it means to be adults, create a home and be committed to each other. After announcing they are pregnant with their first child, the couple decides to embark on a journey (across countries) visiting friends and family in an effort to decide where they should settle down, along the way learning how to deal with unexpected challenges, unsolicited opinions, and inevitable expectations.

Inspired by this post and “Away We Go”.

Rae and Archie’s similar primary concern for Finn’s response to their “reveals” in Series 1 and 2 has always been endearing to me…

  • Rae: When she made her speech about being in the mental home, etc. at her mum’s wedding, Rae was most concerned about the reveal’s impact on Finn. In fact, she specifically sought him out and physically chased him down after briefly checking in with the rest of the gang.
  • Archie: When he is talking to Rae about telling the gang about his sexuality, he specifically says that he’s most worried about the impact on Finn. When he actually does talk to the gang, Finn is not only the one who prompts him, but is also the first person Archie looks to. 

I think both of those moments reveal an interesting bit that’s the reverse of something Rae says about herself in series 2, ep 4 (“Friday”)…

"I am not secretly hard. I am very publicly soft as shit."

Finn is actually the exact reverse - publicly hard, but secretly soft as shit. They are both keenly attune to that intimate detail about Finn, not because he’s ever explicitly said anything but merely because of who he is and their choice to recognize this quality in him. In some ways, it’s like the three of them have an unspoken secret in knowing this that’s never openly discussed. I find it ironic when Finn calls Rae the “glue”, because while it is true, how Rae/Archie each look to him in these moments really drives home the point that he is equally the “glue” to them.

Thank You…

It has been a spell since I did a feedback review for The Station. Since it’s now concluded, I wanted to thank everyone for their support, kindness, likes, re-blogs, insight, feedback and general brilliance! I mentioned this before, but I sincerely mean it - I wouldn’t have finished writing the fic if the community had not been so amazing. I started creative writing again for the first time in ten years when I did this and the response was beyond what I expected. I am so thankful for our little MMFD corner of this online community. You have encouraged my imagination to go places, create worlds, relationships and experiences it wouldn’t have if no one was “listening”.  

You are each lovely. I hope today, this week, this month, this year and all the time ahead is just as lovely as you are, full of love, hugs, laughter, joy and moments that make you feel full to the brim with hope and anticipation for everything to come!

I tried to tag as many people as I could below, but if you’re not specifically listed please know that if this note is showing up on your dash at all it’s meant for you as well…

Side-note: I am about half-way finished with writing Chapter One of The Roundabout, so hope to start posting by early next week. EXCITED!

I want a soul mate who can sit me down, shut me up, tell me ten things I don’t already know, and make me laugh. I don’t care what you look like, just turn me on.
