      Since Fall 2016, we have had an Author of the Month series. Each month the MTT admins will pick an author to showcase their stories.

      What’s your criteria? In general we want to pick authors with a sizable body of work (at least 5 stories) so you have plenty to read! We’re also going to try to look beyond the Top Favorite Authors list on the archive, not that we don’t love them, because we certainly do! We just feel like this is a chance to showcase authors who maybe got overlooked because their stories got lost in the shuffle during the peak years or because they posted stories either during later seasons or after the show was finish when interest had waned a bit.

      Can readers select Author of The Month? Though the mods will make the call, readers are certainly free to “nominate” authors they think are worthy of the AotM title, so please don’t hesitate to post who you’d like to see!

      Onto the list!

        September’s Author of the Month: watchthesky84

        Author of 8 stories, we mods feel watchthesky84 would have definitely gotten a lot more kudos had she been writing during the “peak” Office years. Her Jim/Pam one shots explore a lot of “what if” scenarios and are romantic with some angst, some steam and a good amount of inner dialogue. We really think you’ll enjoy her stories!

          Congratulations ‘watchthesky84’

           

          My nomination for next month is ‘time4moxie’. Not sure if he/she is still active but their story about IRC is one of my favorites.

              I’m still here, though it’s easy to forget to come by with life getting in the way.    Thanks for the kind words!  🙂

              October’s Author of the Month: Deedldee

              The very talented Deedldee wrote 21 stories for MoreThanThat. Though she has her share of early season stories, she also wrote a fair number of “future fics” and stories centered around Jim & Pam’s parenthood. We mods love all her stories, and added a ribbon to Indigo and Crimson, which beautifully fleshes out Jim and Pam’s domestic life during Season 8 (arguably the best thing to come out of season 8!). We think you’ll enjoy all her stories!

                November’s Author of the Month: Peskipiksi

                Author of 8 stories, Peskipiksi explored lot of “What if Pam wised up sooner?” type fics way back in the day, such as what if Pam went for that internship in “Boy and Girls” or what if she made a “grand gesture” to Jim shortly after “Casino Night.” Though most of their stories were written in season 3, we mods have to give Peskipiksi some kind of Dundie or gold yogurt lid for returning after 9 years with the very fun In Vino Veritas, answering the question “What if Pam and Jim got very drunk together in season 3?” We think you’ll like the answer, as well as all their other fics!

                  You will have no shortage of stories to read this month as PuffingNoise is the author of a whopping 42 stories! Within their catalog you will a wide variety of stories, from sweet (First Dance) to angsty (Weather-Worn and Weary), from very much in-canon to believable alternative takes on unlike situations, like Fate: The Story of the Inexperience of Jim Halpert, or City Love. And with 42 stories, you have about 1.5 stories to read every day this month!

                    January’s Author of the Month is: italianfood

                    We recommend italianfood for her very fleshed-out AU fics. She is very good at keeping the characters true to themselves even in such different situations, such as college AU Dunder Hall, This is Pam, plus her stories are very well balanced. We hope you will enjoy her stories!

                      February’s Author Of The Month: Cassandra Mulder

                      Author of 24 stories, Cassandra has lots of romantic oneshots. They’re all worth a read but here some our mod A’s recommendations to get started:

                      Kiss and Tell – this is just flufftastic!
                      Puppy love – simple and adorable but the dialogue is so perfectly them that this little scene is so easy to visualize.
                      All your fault– I just like this.
                      To the place where I belong – I like what is said between Jim and Karen and also between Jim and Pam. I also like the account of Jims day (interview day) and inner monologue, it seems quite realistic for him. Despite some Jam cliches this is a pretty good account of that day.
                      Wake up where you are – I just like this one too.

                        March’s Author Of The Month: carbondalien

                        Carbondalien has a lot of variety within her 26 stories. From one-shots to multi-chapter to one script style fic, we think you will enjoy her great characterization! Our mod ~A especially likes Does He Love You? and Here and There are Little Islands.

                          April’s Author Of The Month: nqllisi

                          You have lots to read this month as nqllisi has a whopping 86 stories to her name, making her the 2nd most prolific author at the archive. Most of her fics are short and offer internal thoughts of characters during or in between episodes. And she returned last month to post the conclusion of her cute (if bittersweet) The Receptionist’s New Clothes, which we feel deserves some kind of gold yogurt lid! We think you’ll enjoy her stories!

                              You guys! I’m so honored! Seriously, this place meant SO MUCH to me. I didn’t realize how much I had missed it. I’m delighted that the site has become a vibrant  place again, and that’s what inspired me to finally finish up my longest-ever story. Thank you so much! –Lis
