Parks and Rec(s), 11 recs, various pairings

(But mostly Leslie/Ben.) I'm still working through my finale feels and everything this fandom means to me, and that means...fic recs!

Why This Must Be Read: If you read Parksfic, you know stillscape’s work. This 1920s-Parisian-art-scene AU may sound kooky, but the author is a master at this sort of thing—weaving together canon and the historical setting, figuring out just the right roles for each character to play, and finding a way to bring Leslie and Ben delightfully, happily, and only a little bit awkwardly together.

Why This Must Be Read: There is a sad lack of sexy in this very small fandom, but this story manages to pack a LOT of it in.
