Day 26: A future fic

Fandom Category: The Office (U.S.)
Pairing: Kelly Kapoor/Ryan Howard
Fic Title: Sometimes the White Picket Fence Isn't A Bad Thing or How Ryan Realized He Cared about Dunder Mifflin... and Kelly
Author: lodessa
Rating/Warning(s): General audiences
Genre: Futurefic, romance, character study
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: What it says on the tin. "The Office" did a good job for a while of hinting at why Kelly and Ryan might stay together, in spite of his not actually being anything she wants and vice versa. Obviously, that fell apart in later seasons, but this fic does a nice job of expanding on one of the wackier couples in canon--everyone's totally in character, yet there's a nice happy ending here.

Fic Title: Around Here No More
Author: loveleee
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/390987
Rating/Warning(s): None
Genre: A little bit of angst.
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A tweak on the events of "Casino Night" that is every bit as painful and believable as canon would have it.


Fandom Category: Parks & Recreation
Pairing: Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt
Fic Title: Simple As It Should Be
Link: http://shornt.livejournal.com/567959.html
Rating/Warning(s): Light suggestiveness
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Leslie frets, only a little unreasonably, about her future with Ben. Ann Perkins, friend and beautiful nurse, is there to tone down the crazy. And then there's a lot of wondering about proposals. My description isn't doing the sweetness and loveable fluff of this fic justice, I'm sorry, just read it.

Rating/Warning(s): None
Genre: Humor, meta
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Abed attempts to write fanfiction about the study group for his creative writing class. His friends are understandably excited and disturbed by turns. It's more gen than het, but it's just too good not to share around.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Smut, Humor
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 22 of 34

Why This Must Be Read: Ah, Jim and Pam. Those two crazy kids were my first, great online fandom love, and that summer after the Casino Night kiss was my introduction to fanfiction. This particular story, written after the season two finale, gives us a Jim and Pam who are already dating but still sexy (oh my god so sexy), funny, and utterly sweet.

To sum up: Jim and Pam + emailing in the office + a game of Truth or Dare + sex = hilarious and perfect smut. It really doesn't get any better than that.

Why This Must Be Read: One of my absolute fav authors, especially for Lost fics. The fics are consistently compelling and incredibly well-characterized, with amazing imagery. Several of them are achingly raw, and everything is just so fantasically well written - these are fics are have to re-read every once in a while because they set the bar so high on quality. Love, love so much!

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica/Logan
Fic Title: Everything Hits at Once
Author: annie_oakley
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Angst, mystery, romance (it's epic!)
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This story starts with a future Logan and Veronica, faced with solving a crime that hits very close to home. As the mystery unfolds, we also get a number of flashbacks that show us how Veronica and Logan got here, as well as where all of our favorite secondary characters have been. The mystery is really well-crafted and will keep you guessing until the end.


Fandom Category: The Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Fic Title: I Do
Author: HalfHope
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Action, angst, romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This story is an AU that asks what would have happened if the Quarter Quell didn't occur and Peeta and Katniss had to go through with their wedding? Would it still all be an act? What's interesting about this fic is how much their story still gels with canon, despite the fact that it's technically AU. This will definitely help hold you over until the first movie comes out. (March 2012!)


Fandom Category: The Office
Pairing: Pam/Jim
Fic Title: The Love Song of Squirrel McPants
Author: time4moxie
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, angst, humor
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: After Jim returns to Scranton from Stamford, he secretly joins a chat room to meet up with Pam (unbeknownst to her) and find out how she really feels about him. The problem is, once he knows, how will Pam feel about his deception? The banter here betwen Jim and Pam, the other Dunder-Miffinites, and the OCs is just perfect. This is a really fun read--I promise you'll laugh out loud a few times.

I just searched my brain for a het epic that I haven't already recced here and this is what I remembered. (Incidentally, comb back through the archives for HP's "After the End" and "Hermione, Queen of Witches," Buffy's "Phoenix Burning" and "Bittersweet Legacy," and Parks & Recreation's "and next stop, the world" for more fantastic epics that I would've recced had they not already been recced, several by me.)

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for graphic sex, lots of angst, various mature themes, etc.
Genre: Angst liek woah
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Season 2 and 3 fics are all about the angst and the UST of everyone's favorite Scranton couple. This epic series resolves the ST pretty quickly and yet still piles on the angst like crazy in the process of imagining an AU where Jim and Pam hook up in early Season 2--but very little else changes, at least not immediately. In fact, most of it occurs directly in the backdrop of canon. Because of that, things get a little OOC later on, but by then the authors have built things to a point where it makes more sense. And then there's the angst, with raw feelings so tactile you could cut 'em with a knife. (For what it's worth, the authors all have a lot of work in this fandom, much of which is way happier.) It's far from the happiest JAM fic you'll read but it's well worth the investment.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 / sex
Genre: PWP
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 4/30

Why This Must Be Read: This piece is so dirty, especially for a pairing that doesn't really get that much smut written about it fandom wise. Pam and Jim would totally have sex on Dwight's desk just to mess with him, it's just so them.

Probably the correct phrasing would be: Jim and Pam end up doing it on Dwight's desk again. For the second time. That day.

Really, like there's any other pairing on that show. But I just finished perusing the archives of the [livejournal.com profile] scranton_times, and I figured others should benefit from the oldies-but-goodies I found there.

In fact, I'm in love with Italian food. )

Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance, one-shot

Why This Must Be Read: This fic's premise has long since been jossed by canon, but it's a sweet and eloquent take on what might have been on a snow day with our favorite couple.  Set during Season 5.

Why This Must Be Read: Sometime in Season 2, Michael makes everyone go to a Disco Night, ostensibly as a team-building exercise.  Pam and Jim turn out to be an excellent couples-dance team, and then there's a bit of drinking, and some angst, and some hope.

For some reason, I'm on a huge Office fic kick. Here are two great Jim/Pam fics I've read in the last few days, coincidentally by the same author.

Fandom Category: The Office
Pairing: Pam Beesly/Jim Halpert
Fic Title: Distance Learning
Author: time4moxie
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for JAM SEX.
Genre: Angsty romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: After Jim moves to Stamford, Pam decides to make the first move and reach out... via email. This fic shows Pam and Jim rediscovering their friendship and finally admitting there's something more, in a realistic way that fits the style of the show.

Fandom Category: The Office
Pairing: Pam Beesly/Jim Halpert
Fic Title: The Love Song of Squirrel McPants
Author: time4moxie
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angsty romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: Afraid to put himself out there again with Pam, Jim takes on a username and gets to know her true feelings online. This leads to much of the adorable and smart-assed banter that makes us Pam/Jim shippers melt.

Fic Title: Trinkets
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zippity_zoppity 
Link: http://zippity-zoppity.livejournal.com/1879.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, five things
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Sweet and sincere, this fic is an out-of-chronological-order recounting of five gifts of various sorts everyone's favorite Scranton couple exchanges over the years, from pre-series up to the present(ish) day. (Also, I am on such an Office kick at the moment, so humor me.)
[identity profile] stars-inthe-sky.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: The Office (US)
Pairing: Pam Beesley/Jim Halpert
Fic Title: brief interviews with hideous men
Author: [livejournal.com profile] honey_wheeler 
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Missing moments
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Nobody, especially if they work in at Dunder Mifflin Scranton, is perfect.  Jim Halpert, for all that we fangirls lovelovelove him, is not exempt from that.  We get glimpses of his rougher moments, like dumping Katy on the Booze Cruise or (as discussed in this fic) making a mockery of the Finer Things Club.  For every heartfelt parking lot confession, he's got a nasty breakup by a fountain in New York City. This little number finds Pam experiencing a few of his less proud moments, and taking them in stride.  After all, she's not perfect either.

(Basically go and read everything [livejournal.com profile] honey_wheeler has written.  It's all pretty spectacular.)

Fic Title: strings
Author: [livejournal.com profile] honey_wheeler 
Link: http://honey-wheeler.livejournal.com/13559.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Character study, a bit of angst
WIP?: No.  One-shot, 760 words

Why This Must Be Read: This is a short fic that packs a big punch.  Unlike the obvious OTP-ness of Jim and Pam, Kelly and Ryan have never really been an obvious couple.  She's bubbly and superficial; he's a more laconic jerk.  It's never been entirely clear why they keep putting up with each other. "strings" was written back at the beginning of their relationship in Season 2, and it lends just the right insight, from Kelly's perspective, as to the dynamics at work here. The author does so much in very little space, and it makes me wish the "documentary crew" was a little more nosy about office romances besides the headliners.

(There does not appear to be a Kelly/Ryan tag, FYI.)

Rating/Warning(s): pg-13 (Crossover. AU post the series finale of Dawson's Creek and season four of The Office)
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 6/45

Why This Must Be Read: When I first saw this pairing I was both intrigued and slightly mortified because I had no idea how it was going to work. Then I remembered that I have loved just about every single thing both of these authors have ever produced, and I gave it a go. Boy, am I glad I did. The evolution of Pam and Pacey's relationship from roommates to friends to something more is so believable and well done that it will give you butterflies. The whole premise is quirky, but fits who the characters are at their cores. The writing is witty and smart and most of all the characters never, ever diverge from their canon selves. It's a fabulous read and made me remember how much I love crossover pairings when they are done well.

Fic Title: Borneo
Author: sophiahelix
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/201521
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and Up
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Poor Jim, rejected on a Friday and bored to tears on the following Monday, when Pam has taken a sick day. He leaves her a string of voicemail messages--mostly akin to those Pam left him in "The Carpet" but also increasingly desperate in a subtle, almost non-shippy way--as the rest of the office goes through their usual madcap paces. Though this fic ignores his plan to transfer, it's otherwise I think what we all hoped and maybe even expected after "Casino Night"...and it certainly reads just like that episode would have played out.
