Why This Must Be Read: This story is the classic woke-up-married-in-Vegas trope, done to perfection. It's long (almost 50k in a sitcom fandom!), with a great slow burn relationship, and - since it takes place after the season one finale - has a fantastic belligerent sexual tension between Amy and Jake that pays dividends. And the character voices, oh my god, the voices in this fic. Spot-on and so hilarious.

An excerpt:

"I have a boyfriend," Amy reminds the both of them.

"Yeah, yeah," Jake says, with a hint of the brittle brightness that he gets whenever they're talking about Teddy.

"So neither of us remembers anything." Amy sighs. "That's just great."

"Wait," Jake says into the carpet. "We are detectives. We can detect this. We're gonna detect it so hard."
