That's My Life reviews
An occasional spinoff from After Today, written from Ste's point of view not Brendan's. Each chapter runs parallel to part of After Today rather than forming a continuous story of their own, and won't make much sense without that context. Chapter 1 fits into After Today as 'Chapter 39a', Chapter 2 would be 'Chapter 44a', Chapter 3 would be 'Chapter 59a'.

After Today reviews
A sequel to the series of stories following Real Arms Around Me including Doing It Again. This one begins in the spring of 2016, a couple of days after Say It Back. Brendan and Ste are making a life together after prison. It's a continuing story which won't be finishing any time soon. I promise it won't be abandoned or ended without warning x
