Fic Title: Nothing Better

Rating/Warning(s): Teen and Up
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Set in the summer between Seasons 1 and 2, this fic has got to be canon.  It's the only way to explain the perfectly balanced dynamic between Pam and her life with Roy.  Reading this, you leave with a strong sense of exactly why Pam stayed with him for so long.  It's comfortable, if incomplete.  It's really all she knows.  He's really all she knows.  Her frustration with her life and her loneliness are on full display here alongside her failure to do anything about them.  Her interactions with Jim are as subtle and sweet and fraught are they are in canon, and you'll long to tell this Pam that there is and will be so much more to her life.

Special Rec:
23/35

Why This Must Be Read: In Season 3, particularly at the beginning, it's not clear how much Pam's life has changed even as she tries to change it.  This fic gives us a glimpse at why: change is difficult.  Momentum is hard to build after such a habit of inertia.  It's more of a character study than anything else, examining how a quiet, lonely person might start to build a life for herself.

Why This Must Be Read: This is exactly how I've always felt their first date should have gone: quick, sweet, and fun, and ending just the way every JAM 'shipper out there would want.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is the absolutely perfect antidote to the first couple I've recced here.  It's so utterly full of joy and fits seamlessly into the glorious but short bits of JAM goodness in Season 4.  Part of the wonderfulness of their relationship is that they just seem to work most of the time, the way real people in a great relationship might, and this fic is composed of so many of those small moments that mean so much to them and to us.
