St Berry Hello

3 Parks & Rec - Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt fics

In the recs wanted post drphungus asked for Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt recs.

I don't watch this show but one of my favorite authors has written some fics for it.

The Wallflowers, pg
Post "Soulmates"
"It hurts her face, the way her cheeks stretch to accommodate the smile that he causes to blossom on her lips. The best kind of pain, she thinks..."

The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Ben, pg
Spoilers: let's just say this takes place sometime after soulmates?
"He’s sly, he’s slick; he only manages to walk into a wall once trying to be both sly and slick while walking and talking with her. Overall, he’d call that a success."

On the Off Chance, pg-13 (because I say breasts a lot? And someone might be offended?)
post "Jerry's Painting"
"...he can’t stop thinking about breasts. Leslie’s breasts."

Fandom Category: Angel
Pairing: Cordelia Chase/Angel
Fic Title: Chapter Eight: On Deciding How To Die
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 6 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 

It’s all about Cordelia, with little glimpses at Angel and the gang. It’s placed in the middle of Season Three. When the whole gang was happy (most of the time) and together. I have no words for describing how amazing this fic is. No words. Just keep in mind that is THE best Cordelia-season3-real-introspective fic I’ve read. No doubts.
