So where are the other Tom and Tamara stories

NoraAdrienne's picture

I distinctly remember reading this series a number of years ago. I read this one thinking that it was a CONTINUATION and was surprised to find that Tammy hadn't come out to the world yet.

You reminded me!

I checked on Google and came up with the stories on Stardust site and marked as written by Topsy. They are dated in 2009 and (currently named author) Shiraz is the name marked as having submitted the stories to that web site. Beyond that info, I have no idea of the relationship between Shiraz, now marked here as author, and previously marked author Topsy. Shiraz could you please post an explanation of this change? BTW, I'm definitely not accusing Shiraz of doing something wrong! However, I am most curious about is going on given that there is a change in the author's name...

Very familiar

I also remembered reading this a few years back. I looked at Stardust and that's what I remember, but I remember there being more, that the story was complete. Had more 'family' problems, worked out a deal with the school, and everybody (except John and his mother!) lived happily ever after. Maybe remembering it wrong but without the relevant chapters to crosscheck my brain against I'll never know.

They know they can survive
