Author of the Month
May 2018 Author of the Month:
For May we want to feature an overlooked author and shannanagin definitely did not get nearly the accolades she deserved in the early days of the archive! We hope you'll read all 7 of her fics and give them lots of jellybeans, you can start with her first,
which is a great moody look at Jim's thoughts during casino night, her final fic,
this is the way that we love
which is a very interesting and bittersweet look at Pam and Roy as their relationship came to an end, or her longest fic,
Laugh This Life With Me
, a canon-divergent epic with Jim and Pam finding their way to each other a bit sooner.
June 2018 Author of the Month:
Less than a year ago Rach3l burst onto the MTT scene with the ridiculously hot Words Left Unsaid and since then has published 14 stories. Not one-shots either, but multi-chapter epics whose word-counts have added together to already make her the 5th most prolific author on the archive! What's notable about Rach3l is the highly imaginative situations she throws our beloved Jim and Pam in. From a 1984-esque dystopia in
and it's sequel
, a world where everyone has superpowers in
, and just a good old fashioned college AU in
The music of my heart, or whatever
, you'll be impressed how Rach3l can take the core JAM story and make it something different and fresh.
If AUs aren't your thing, never fear, she also more canon-compliant stories like first date/first time fic
Love Loyalty and Friendship
or Pam meeting the parents in
. Either way, you can't go wrong with any of her fics!
July 2018 Author of the Month:
This July marks 12 years of MTT online which is fitting since GodInThisChilis is our 12th most favorited author! One thing that makes The Office so interesting is how it's filmed like a documentary, and no MTT author incorporated the documentary element better than GITC. Long before the
reveal of the camera crew, GITC wrote several stories about Jim & Pam interacting with the crew such as the fan-favorites
Nobody's Business But Mine
. But all 20 of her stories are worth a read from the
Reality Reality TV
series to the Beach Games aftermath in
Like Sands Through the Hourglass
to an ousider's take on JAM in
I Was In the Chili's -- An Open Letter from God
August 2018 Author of the Month:
If you're an andtheivy fan, you probably agree she did not get the accolades she deserved Dundie wise or jelly-bean wise so this is an opportunity to remedy that. All 18 of her stories are worth a read from her collection of steamy stories in the
Let's Spend the Night Together
series, her great college AU
, a collection of moments through the years between Jim and Cece in
and an AU with Jim and Pam together from the beginning in
In My Life, I Love You More
. So start with those fic and then read the rest!
September 2018 Author of the Month:
Though only at MTT for less than at year, agian18 is already in the top 10 most prolific authors (by wordcount), thanks in large part to her epic
Wake Me Up
. Once you've checked that out make sure to read her other 7 fics, from the angsty
Every Little Thing
about what Jim and Pam's thoughts after Casino Night, to some great "Jim grows a beard" smut in
Black and White, Chocolate and Creme
to her current "Pam has amnesia" WIP
and of course anything else she writes!
October 2018 Author of the Month:
An "administrator emeritus", xoxoxo very much helped shape MTT into what it is today and additional wrote some great fics. And she wrote a lot of them, her 68 stories put her near the top of the Most Prolific Authors list. To start we recommend
(both JAMfic essentials), the funny
A Mid-Diwali Night's Dream
(in which Angela & Dwight and Kelly & Ryan switch partners, and not in the way you'd expect
(a sweet and different kind of pregnancy fic).
November 2018 Author of the Month:
Dundie All-Star has 7 stories to her name, mostly set during S4/5 based stories with Jim & Pam sweetly navigating their new romantic relationship. All 7 stories are worth a read, we suggest
What Not To Wear
- a different kind of crossover with Pam getting fashion advice,
- an AU where Pam moves into Jim apartment building in the city, and
- an Angela oneshot set around Moroccan Christmas.
December 2018 Author of the Month:
While she got her start on the archive during Season 5, BigTuna returned after a long absence this year to finish up her College AU
then followed up with several excellent fics. She has a string of great steamy one-shots like Jim and Pam working on phyicial communication
and Jim growing a beard in
, some great in-progress multichapters like
Letters, Numbers, and the Spaces Between
the things that made us you and me
and, perhaps most importantly of all, she finally gave the archive the "Nice Morning, too" it deserved in the excellent
Stay and Fight
. We think you'll love these and all her 15 stories!

January 2019 Author of the Month:
With a whooping 103 titles to her name, unfold has by far the most stories on the archive. But don't fear, most of them are well under 1000 words, and every one is beautifully written and full of emotion. Many are angsty, such as Jim attending Pam's wedding in
Beer Cans to the Bumper
or Jim & Pam having an affair in
The Distance and the Damage
. Some are sweet like
The First Year, According to the Weather
, smutty like
sometimes i talk like a turnstyle
, or sweet and smutty like
. If you enjoy some Karen in your fics, she’s included in several titles such as a little Jim/Karen fluff in
outside the window is too far away
, a realistic Jim and Karen break up fic in
a sidewalk, a subway, walking to sunsets
and Karen and Pam bonding in interesting ways in
Give Me Your Hand and Let’s Jump Out a Window
. And once you read those 8 fics, you still have 95 to go! So get reading!

Early AOTM Re-Feature!
We started our AOTM series way back in September of 2016 and one of our main goals with this series is to introduce readers to authors that they may not otherwise come across, either due to being overlooked during the peak archive years or posting during later seasons when activity was lower. And ironically enough, these authors may have been overlooked again when they were first featured as AOTMs! So we're going to take this month to
our first 4 Authors of the Month. You can head back to the 2nd post of this thread to read their full blurbs but here are the re-featured authors with links to two of their worth-while stories (though trust us, every story from all these authors is worth reading!):
: stories -
Ask Me Again
Just Wanted to Know
: stories -
Indigo and Crimson
: stories -
In Vino Veritas
: stories -
Message in a Bottle
Fate: The Story of the Inexperience of Jim Halpert
March 2019 Author of the Month:
She may have two usernames but iamapam1883/spaceorphan is one talented author, with 12 great stories to her names. Head to her iamapam1883 account to read 8 of those stories, including
What the Cameras Don't Show
, a fun oneshot with a great twist,
, the longest story at the archive (sadly incomplete but still well worth reading). Then head to spaceorphan for 4 more stories including fan favorite
, a fun season 3 AU.
April 2019 Author of the Month:
We had been planning on making
the April AOTM for a while and today (4/5) is the perfect day to do it since it's the one year anniversary of when she started watching the show! Though she's written for MTT for less than a year she's already made a great impression with 8 great stories with amazing banter and humor and a hearty helping of steam, including
, the Reader's choice in our Halloween contest,
Always One Foot on the Ground
, a great canon-divergent tail, and the featured
Stilettos and Broken Bottles (Spinning Around in Circles)
, the wild summer of '06 that Pam and we readers deserved. We love all her stories and are waiting (impatiently) for more!
May 2019 author of the month:
Stablergirl proved to be as much a painter as she is a writer, using her words to paint vivid scenes that truly take the reader there. Her catalog of 31 stories are full of MTT standards and classics, such as Pam and Jim bonding over tragedy in
Father and Daughters. Women and Men.
, a canon divergent take on Boys and Girls in
For what I am when I’m with you
, and a darker take on Pam’s dilemma between Roy and Jim in
How It Falls
. In addition to these angsty epics, she showed great versatility with fics like fun X-Files/Office crossover
Brought to you by the Letter X
and “sexy for the sake of it” post-The Job fic
Like a Carpenter that builds stairs
And of course, no blurb about Stablergirl would be complete without mentioning
I just wanted to be famous.
, a modern AU not quite like any other and an absolute must read at the MTT archive.
