Welcome to the New MTT!

That’s right, MTT is back with a Fancy New Design! We also have a Fancy New Community! Please click here to find out more!

We’re having a sort of “branch merger” with fansite Flonkerton, bringing over their recaps, including Pam Pong Scorecards, and some of their other posts of note. A new addition to the recap format is Fanfic Recommendations, where we include fanfic from the archive that is set during these particular episodes. We are going to need community participation on this one so please feel free to comment on the recaps or in the forum with your fic-recs! (the old MTT recaps are here as well!)

There is a lot more planned so please visit us often and if you love the Office, consider joining our community to meet other Office flans! Thanks!
