"Warning Labels" series by honey_wheeler, obsession_inc, kyrafic, and annakovsky

I just searched my brain for a het epic that I haven't already recced here and this is what I remembered. (Incidentally, comb back through the archives for HP's "After the End" and "Hermione, Queen of Witches," Buffy's "Phoenix Burning" and "Bittersweet Legacy," and Parks & Recreation's "and next stop, the world" for more fantastic epics that I would've recced had they not already been recced, several by me.)

Fandom Category: The Office (U.S.)
Pairing: Pam Beesley / Jim Halpert (really, are there any others?)
Series Title: Warning Labels
Author: honey_wheeler, obsession_inc, kyrafic, and annakovsky.
Link: It's all at warning_labelsbut starts here: http://warning-labels.livejournal.com/469.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for graphic sex, lots of angst, various mature themes, etc.
Genre: Angst liek woah
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Season 2 and 3 fics are all about the angst and the UST of everyone's favorite Scranton couple. This epic series resolves the ST pretty quickly and yet still piles on the angst like crazy in the process of imagining an AU where Jim and Pam hook up in early Season 2--but very little else changes, at least not immediately. In fact, most of it occurs directly in the backdrop of canon. Because of that, things get a little OOC later on, but by then the authors have built things to a point where it makes more sense. And then there's the angst, with raw feelings so tactile you could cut 'em with a knife. (For what it's worth, the authors all have a lot of work in this fandom, much of which is way happier.) It's far from the happiest JAM fic you'll read but it's well worth the investment.
