New Girl, 3 recs, Jess/Nick and Cece/Schmidt

I did not realize how many sitcom recs I had wanted to make before this challenge. But now you can call me Butter, because I am on a ROLL!

Why This Must Be Read: High school AU! The author does a great job of merging what the characters were actually like in high school (as shown in flashbacks) with what the characters’ current selves might be like in high school, and the results are sweet and funny and totally perfect.

Why This Must Be Read: This is not what happened after “Elaine’s Big Day,” but it’s what probably should have happened. The characters are so spot-on here—you can see all the layers of why Nick and Jess make a great couple and why they make a terrible one, too. With bonus Schmidt freakouts, natch!

Why This Must Be Read: Instead of hoping for the kinds of miracles that only happen on TV, Schmidt actually makes an honest effort to fix things with Cece, and it’s so much better than the push-and-pull of canon, let me tell you.
