Why This Must Be Read: This is a wonderful deep look at Jeff Winger, with all his issues and insecurities. It's a more serious look at the inside of Jeff's mind that the show has, the dialogue is spot on, something always running in the background. postcardmystery is one of my favourite authors because of the way she uses language (if you like the style of this you should read her other fics in other fandoms).
Jeff Winger doesn’t really like sex, has never really liked sex, if he’s honest with himself. (Which he rarely is, but who’s keeping track by this stage of the game?) Jeff Winger likes what he’s supposed to like, has spent his whole life liking what he’s supposed to like, and he’s doing fine. You hear him? He’s doing just fine.
“Yeah, or we could not set all the trashcans on fire,” he says, not even looking up from his phone, and Annie clears her throat.
“Again,” he says, and when Annie smiles at him, he doesn’t let himself entertain a single thought. Fine, okay? Fine fine fine.
