The 2020 MTT Dundie Awards 🏆

"Well I've been kinda going through a rough patch. The whole year actually." This Michael Scott quote pretty much sums up 2020, but one silver lining to this sh*tstorm of a year is quarantine and lockdowns led to lots and lots of great fanfic with over 240 new and updated stories!

As we've done the last couple years, we asked the MTT community to name a few of their favorites in many categories, plus create some recognition for their fellow MTTers. And this year, our member more than answered the call! So here is our monster of a Dundies Post for 2020

Favorite Moment in a Fanfic
As you can see there was a lot of love for the fics this year! Multiple fave moments for a single fic were consolidated into a single paragraph and are separated by semi-colons

10 Hotel Rooms by Donnamour1969 - The Shower Scene

A Bad Dream by Dernhelm – Pam worrying about how to exorcise a ghost without messing up the basement

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood by agian18 – "I just realized, I didn’t know their names until last week.”

Aeternum by boredhswf – James running into the Beesly mansion that's on fire; James smirking around a mouthful of bread as Pam recounts her mother's guidance on marital affairs; James and Pamela's first time; Any time James and Pam stand up for each other; waist touching; James and Pamela at the piano; “He wasn’t sure what he just agreed to do but he knew, without a doubt, that he would follow her anywhere”; Chapter 5, Bound for Another Home: "A large drip of hot wax fell on the edge of his hand with a stinging hiss and she reached for it, bracing it in both of her own before wiping the cooling wax free with a swipe of her thumb. The feel of her hand caused sparks of heat, far hotter than any wax, to course through him, and as her lips touched his skin to soothe the injury, those sparks ignited into flames." Just some really great imagery and beautiful writing overall.

Announcement: More Than That is now I Got Goosebumps!

It started with a look. It was a dark haired, hazel-eyed salesperson's first day at Dunder Mifflin Scranton. Two seconds around the branch manager and the decision to work here already seemed unwise. But a warm greeting from the reception desk made everything seem better. Her name was Pam, and with her honey curls, bright green eyes, soft laughter, the salesperson couldn't name it yet but it was a feeling like falling.

She bumbled a compliment about Pam's sweater, hoping she didn't sound as nervous as she felt. Pam innocently enough assumed Karen wanted her own cable-knit sweater but Karen was envisioning being wrapped up in that gray one with her.

TPam and Karen in Benihana Christmasheir spark was instant and undeniable, but their fate was sealed. Karen would be reduced to the angle of a love triangle, Pam would be denied the relationship she so needed and deserved. But what if there was a place they could live on, and become what there was so much potential to be?

We welcome you to "I Got Goosebumps", formerly "More Than That", the number one place for KaPam fanfiction. While for nearly 15 year our focus was on Jim and Pam, we felt it was time to move on and shift to this exciting couple that Jenna Fischer and Rashida Jones themselves called "adorable." So old friends and new lovers, welcome all to IGG!




Yes, IGG was for April Fool's of course, but there actually is some great KaPam stuff both old and new that we encourage you to read (and if you wanna set the mood you can read it in the KaPam theme )
