Why This Must Be Read: Nick and Jess get married for insurance reasons during Nick’s cancer scare in season one, and their relationship goes AU from that point. This fic was written for the Het Big Bang in 2013, and it’s such a fantastic, funny, slow burn, fake-married (yes!), sharing-a-bed (yes!!!) story of trope-y goodness, leavened with this poignant, underlying sense of pining and angst and real emotion. I’ve re-read this story multiple times over the years - I can’t say enough how much I love it.
