Pairing: Jessica Day/Nick Miller
Fic Title: Big Girl Pants
Genre: Humor, Romance, Friendship
Special Rec: 16 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: Because it's a sweet, bromance-y, and very hilarious story about Jess and her three guys. It can be incredibly hard to write for sitcoms and capture the true voice of the characters and show - this fic pulls that off with a flourish. (Also, you guys, I ship Nick and Jess SO HARD. That kiss, whoa.)
Jess takes a deep breath and blows it back out again. "So I was eating breakfast and trying to figure out my butt's spirit animal, and Nick came in and yelled at me and threw milk at my bagel and cream cheese. But he remembered all my favorite things, and there were hands and eyes and naked parts, and he promised to find my pants. And then I ran away in my pajamas, and left my keys and my purse. And my bra."
She watches Cece blink again, twice this time, and wonders why it's weird when she does it but Cece somehow looks like hot human Bambi.
"You had sex with Nick?"
"What?" Jess shrieks, and chokes on her own spit. "No! Were you even listening to the story?"
