the courage to change the things i can by ficsbypunim Rated: M [Reviews - 0]
Summary: "So, at 11:53 on Tuesday morning, she told Roy she had plans to eat lunch with Jim and told Jim she had plans to eat lunch with Roy. She snuck Roy’s keys out of his locker and drove his pickup exactly 2.4 miles to Rite Aid. Last time she’d comparison-shopped pregnancy tests in the Family Planning aisle, Pam had been seventeen and scared out of her mind. Now she was twenty-five and...scared out of her mind."
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A pre-series look at Pam making a difficult decision. This one really struck a chord with me.

Not Those People by exquisitelymorose Rated: T [Reviews - 0]
Summary: "She brushes a thumb over the skin of his hand and he’s sure his heart is breaking inside his chest because he can’t do this. And he can’t let her do this. They’re not these people. This, this moment, his hand in hers, this is okay. They can wake up tomorrow, see each other at work on Monday and laugh about too much beer and a dumb moment with a high five that ended poorly. But what goes on beyond that… they are not those people." A story in which Jim innocently invites Pam to his house party and she comes feeling a little upset. But he puts his feelings aside and tells himself that tonight, he’s going to be a good friend. And what do good friends do when their friends are in pain? Help them forget with a little fun and a lot of booze. A one-shot of our favourites in one of many moments they could've slipped up while Pam was with Roy.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: This is a quintessential Season 2 one-shot, featuring all the greatest hits: Pining White Knight Jim, Almost About to Come to Grips With Her Feelings Pam, Jim and Pam Being BFFs and Not Just Secretly in Love, Roy being a jerk and everyone being juuuuuuust a little drunk. Fabulously well-written, very in character.

Summary: "Michael, you can’t just demand that everyone goes to the Poconos this weekend."
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A combination of BusinessTrip!Fic and Sick!Fic, set in late Season 3. I.E. Michael makes everyone go to the Poconos, Jim gets bronchitis, and Pam offers to take care of him so Karen won't catch it. Flawed, but some solid Season 3 feels and good use of the supporting cast.

Sometimes Pam thinks it's all because of Dwight. And that's a scary thought. [spoilers up to 4x04, Money; also for Buffy the Vampire Slayer through Season 6]

Don't Fall in Love with Everyone You See by bayloriffic Rated: K+ [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Kelly’s probably had this discussion about a million times in her life, but she’s so excited that Jim is actually playing along that she doesn’t mind. Plus, she really would like to know his opinion on this. It’s always good to get a guy’s perspective when it comes to romance and dating, even if that guy doesn’t understand the most amazing movie of all time.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: Jim/Kelly during the dark days of Season 3 (although it *could* be read as Jim/Kelly friendship if you're insistent on canon compliance), very in character for both of them, featuring a mostly oblivious Karen and world's worst boyfriend Ryan and Jim having a very predictable take on Pretty in Pink.

Summary: RYAN IS MATT DAMON.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: Honestly, it's kind of hard to describe this one, beyond the fact that it's five brief scenes in which Ryan is compared to Matt Damon or a character played by him, and it's darn funny.

The Virus by nicthesurfer Rated: K [Reviews - 0]
Summary: In an attempt to brighten Pam's day, Jim unintentionally sends Michael down a rabbit hole of misinformation, causing him to create an unbearable work environment. (Basically, it's a spec script for a Season 2 episode in which coronavirus is just starting to spread.) Note: links to PDF

Recommender's comments: Look, it's a little too soon to laugh about all this... but this feels a lot like how canon might have tried to handle the pandemic.

Potluck by SEF Rated: K [Reviews - 0]

Recommender's comments: Jim/Pam tension that would slot well into canon, set pre-Casino Night. Painfully awkward, very Office-style humor and sweetness.

Summary: It's the engagement ring.

It has magic powers.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A *deeply* adorable look at happily married Jim and Pam, with a dose of jealousy and insecurity and Pam never really accepting that guys are into her. It's better than I'm making it sound... I'm honestly hoping the author just posts it here.

Summary: Miss Pamela Beesly is faced with an unexpected choice. (Casino night done regency romance style because, why not? Just a bit of fun, and yes, there's a happy ending.) ""Ah! Halpert, good man. See to her, won't you? Philbin's waiting for me in the card room." Pamela Beesly glared at her betrothed, her face flushing, fingers clenched into the blue fabric of her gown. Surely he would not leave her on this terrace in the middle of their conversation? Mr. Halpert, her dearest friend and neighbor, murmured his acquiescence, and Captain Roy Anderson disappeared back into the ballroom."

much ado about nothing by sleazyjanet Rated: K [Reviews - 0]
Summary: After hooking up that one night a month before Angela’s wedding, Angela and Dwight bring an unbearable sort of tension into the office. After about two or three weeks, their coworkers decide to put a famous play by Shakespeare into action to hopefully fix their problems and also bring back peace into the office.

It’s a comedy, really. That’s all.

Good Old Days by jenncho Rated: K [Reviews - 0]
Summary: This is something they did now. Call or text with random memories of their time together at Dunder Mifflin.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: Jenncho is one of the great fanfic champions of Andy/Oscar and has written 10 stories on AO3 about this pairing. This one, which could easily be canon-compliant, is my favorite. Set post-series, it's both a sweet getting-together story *and* a fun nostalgia trip. A good example of her work, and worth reading even if you're not into the ship.

Summary: "Her father was trying to make her into the person God wanted her to be. It was her own fault that she was never good enough for either of them."

An exploration of Angela Martin from childhood through to mid season 5.
