Why This Must Be Read: The day Schmidt wakes up with wings is a Saturday. Which is lucky because none of his slim-cut non-iron work shirts are really equipped to handle this and he'd hate to ruin one by cutting holes in it.

I loved Elizabeth, I adored her relationship with Schmidt, and I found the different notes she brought out in Schmidt wonderful - those echoes of his insecure, goofy-boy college persona. This fic captures both their relationship (in a gorgeous, straight-forward, sparse yet heartfelt manner) along with the fact that Schmidt, you know, wakes up with a pair of legit wings one morning and New Girl-style wackiness commences. This story is wing!fic done so right, and one of my favorite New Girl fics.
