Author: Talkative
Rating/Warning(s): M

Fic Title: Disco Night
Author: sloanesomething

3 "Parks and Recreation" Recommendations

There are lots of great stories in this fandom, but I didn't want to not include works-in-progress, so here is a post with some of my favorite WIP of late.

Fandom Category: Parks & Recreation
Pairing: Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt
Fic Title: Dear Friend
Author: stillscape
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen so far
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: Based off a Shop Around the Corner challenge in the leslie_ben community, this story sweeps Leslie and Ben back into an AU where they are middle schoolers who begin to write anonymous letters to one another over the summer just before they attend the same summer camp in Indiana. stillscape really makes this premise work, and has a keen touch for the voices and feelings of kids that age.

The Closer, 3 Recs, Brenda Leigh Johnson/Andy Flynn

Fandom Category: The Closer
Pairing: Brenda Leigh Johnson/Andy Flynn
Fic Title: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
Author: allaire
Link: LiveJournal | AO3
Rating/Warning(s): PG (het and pre-het)
Genre: Romance/Angst/UST/Friendship
Special Rec: 10/48

Why This Must Be Read: allaire wrote 37 drabbles for the Christmax calendar 2010 and each fleshes out canon by way of exploring a perceived Brenda & Andy-shippy subtext as the author states. She gives with a few sentences a completely different picture of the scenes and voices Flynn's and Brenda's inner thoughts so in-character, that - after reading all 37 - one could start to think that the show has a subtle F/B undertone.

Pairing: Brenda Leigh Johnson/Andy Flynn
Fic Title: Road to Nowhere (Or, What Happens in Tahiti...)
Author: abracax
Link: AO3 | FF.Net
Rating/Warning(s): K+
Genre: Friendship (with hints at Romance)
Special Rec: 11/48

Why This Must Be Read: abracax wrote this story for a picture challenge at the Closer Forum and it is the first story I ever read for this pairing. It is also responsible for making me ship them. She did such a brilliant job, creating a whole story around a single picture, with sarcastic Flynn and annoyed Brenda (there are no sweets. It's like hell.) that somehow manage to find common ground through a tiny cactus flower.
