TPP Back and up and Running Again!
Better late than never, eh? We're up and running again, thanks to a fair few generous souls who still love the fandom and TPP. Thank you all who contributed! There will be more news shortly, as currently we are having a temporary solution in place, so watch this space! If you have submitted a chapter, we will get to it. If you are a reader, please leave a review so the author knows their story is being read. If you are a spammer, I won't apologise for cutting off your ability to spam. If you are a human, thrive on kindness, not vengeance. ~karelia~ 2019/05/31 - 04:05PM [ 1 Comments]
