Why This Must Be Read: So my favorite trope is the sharing-a-bed trope, no question - you know, the one where two characters end up in the same bed due to some terrible, unfortunate circumstance (“oh no, there’s only one room left in the hotel!”, or, “oh no, we have to pretend to be dating/married!”) and it’s awkward and full of repressed feelings and probably accidental cuddling and/or sex in the morning and I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
And that’s exactly what this story is. This fic reads like an actual episode of the show - it’s fun, sharp, genuinely funny, and awesomely trope-y, with the entire ensemble working together to solve a case while Jake and Amy go undercover as a married couple - and if that doesn’t make you clap your hands with joy, I don’t even know. This story was written for me for Yuletide so it’s basically designed to be right up my alley, but it’s such a perfect fic for this show - seriously, seriously, go read it!
