Pairing: Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt, Ann Perkins/Chris Traeger, April Ludgate/Andy Dwyer
Fic Title: next stop, the world
Summary: Leslie decides to run for office, antics ensue.
Why This Must Be Read: I'd held off reccing this until it was finished, because it is long and fabulous and engrossing. It deals with where S3 leaves off, and remains wonderfully real amongst the romantic and political antics of Ben and Leslie. The absolute best selling point, to me, was the wonderfully integration of everyone else on the show, especially April and Andy. As loveable as they are, they also read as people who know a thing or two about love and provide Ben with a lovely balance to Leslie and Ann's friendship. synecdoche also manages to write a very cute balance into the Ann/Chris dynamic, which IMO was quite lacking on the show. It honestly feels like a few episodes of Season 4.

Pairing: Ann Perkins/Chris Traeger (Leslie/Ben)
Fic Title: Foundations
Summary: "Sometimes, he chooses not to acknowledge outwardly what he knows is happening behind the scenes. It’s simpler that way."
Why This Must Be Read: Because this writes in some simply wonderful backstory for Chris in, and because there is a sad lack of Ann/Chris fics that deal with their relationship after she starts working at City Hall.
Could we possibly have a Ann/Chris tag, mods? Thankyou!
