Bio:

Author of the Month July 2019

Hey Safe & Sound lovers, just for fun I made a playlist, please enjoy and look for the update soon! Spotify | Youtube

Just an Office lover writing fanfics under a penname that's a Park & Rec reference.

"You've been around forever!"

Kinda, I was absolutely obsessed with the show during the Season 3 of Angst (aka when it was looking like they'd drag out the will-they-won't-they indefinitely and only fanfic could fill the void!) and joined up, submitting my decent fanfics and being incredibly intimidated by the fantastic writers this fandom attracted.

After S4 I pretty much fell off the fanfic and fandom map, but Netflix helped me rekindle my JAM feeling something fierce a couple summers ago and I thought hey better check on MTT. The site was in despite need of some TLC and I've worked with the other admins and now I think MTT looking pretty good if I do say so ;-)

"Are you ever going to finish Anywhere But Here?"
I am! I have it plotted out and I'm chipping away at it, along with my other WIPs, and once I finish them up I will NOT have like 5 WIPs at once again >.<

I also have most of my office stuff archived at FFN and AO3

Please don't hesitate to review no matter the age of my fics!

Sweetest by primetime Rated: MA [Reviews - 0]
Summary: "They are just the sweetest, couple, ever," Pam hears Kelly sigh as they leave the office. Jim squeezes her hand gently and brings their joined hands up, impulsively, to kiss her knuckles, and she smiles down at her feet, and that's how they stand in the elevator all the way down. Pretty much PWP.
Recommended by: NobleLandMermaid
Recommender's comments: A steamy one-shot set sometime shortly after Jim and Pam start dating. Great blend of sexy and sweet with a touch of angst and even a little realistic awkwardness.

Insatiate #11 by voleuse Rated: M [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Whatever happens, this is. Set after 2.01 "The Dundies"

Like Real People Do by sleeptalker/ratherbefree Rated: T [Reviews - 0]
Summary: It was just plain fitting that the fire alarm had went off at 3 in the morning, on Pam Beesly's third ever day of college...
Recommended by: NobleLandMermaid
Recommender's comments: Early seasons retold as a College AU. A fun read, I love the way the author incorporates canon things in different, interesting ways. Takes place in current day (2015-16) so it also shows how changes and advances in text messaging and social media in the last ten years would affect our favorite pair's story (both helping and hindering).

Summary: "The people around you are basically who you end up spending your life with." Brian and Pam's friendship through the years. This fic follows the canon storyline up to 9.15 "Couples Discount."
Recommended by: NobleLandMermaid
Recommender's comments: Not a ton of Brian fics out there but this is by far the most in-depth one I've found (83k words!). Basically the entire series from Brian's perspective, each of the 9 chapters covering a season. The first two chapters will make you fall in love with the show all over again, also some really nice "off camera" stuff during seasons 3 and 5. Fair warning, this fic doesn't shy away from being rather critical of Jim.

Recommender's comments: This is a well-known fic to old MTTers but somehow wasn't here in recommendations, so it's high time to remedy that! Written in 2006 by Annakovsky this fic is hot hot hot but also funny and completely in character.

trying to do it right by irishmizzy Rated: T [Reviews - 0]
Summary: He never expected to be in Scranton for three months, let alone three years.
Recommended by: NobleLandMermaid
Recommender's comments: A very plausible look at Season 3 through Brian the mic guy's point-of-view, love all the little missed glances and the not-quite-right timing between Brian and Pam. And that ending! Right in the grief bone!

Summary:

As she settles in that first day of his absence, hangs her coat and takes her seat, Pam lets herself miss him as a coworker and as a best friend and that’s it. Work will be work, with or without Jim Halpert. But that’s a lie, because of course it is. A series of one-shots retelling season 3 from Pam's perspective

Now Published on MTT! 


Recommended by: NobleLandMermaid
Recommender's comments: Though a lot of us know S3 by heart now, this author really does a good job expanding on Pam's thoughts and emotions through the season.As the author says, an excuse to appreciate Pam's amazing S3 character arc a little more.

Fresh Hex by FrostbitePanda Rated: T 1 [Reviews - 0]
Summary: He is standing there limply, the light of the street lamp girding him in orange. She has seen the expression on his face once before. It was one of desolation, of terror, of realizing a great and terrible truth. She wants to leave, but she can't. She can't walk away from that look in his eyes. Not again.

'Phyllis' Wedding' AU.

perhaps a bottle of rose instead by keep_swinging Rated: T [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Pam stumbles across the episode of the documentary with Cathy, Jim, and the hotel room full of supposed bedbugs. (Honestly just a one-shot with little plot and a lot of married life fluff.)
