    Summary

    Because I couldn't quit these two, and because there aren't nearly enough fics in this fandom, I had to write more. Picking up right after THG, this follows Lucy and Josh through a lot of things mentioned in the book, some things hinted at in the book, and some things that I couldn't resist.

    Basically just some soft, anxious dorks being in love with virtually no conflict.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    We walk past a bakery that smells so heavenly that I know I will be plagued by regret for the rest of my life if we don’t go in and eat something. I pester Josh into sharing a massive slice of lemon meringue pie, so tart it stings my mouth. When we’re halfway through he leans over and kisses me deeply. His tongue tastes of summer. 

    He lets me have far more than my fair share of the pie. Is it possible to overdose on love? Surely we’re close. 
    ---
    I have a brief flash of an alternate life where I didn’t get a stomach flu on just the right day, or didn’t lie to Josh about my date with Danny Fletcher. It seems impossible that I could have ended up in a world where I didn’t live in our cozy little blue-walled apartment, where I didn’t love this sweet little bundle, where Josh didn’t reach out and tuck a curl behind my ear, wrinkling his nose at me softly as I hum a little against David’s hair. 

    “We should probably start tucking this little fellow into bed,” Josh says softly. He crouches in front of the rocking chair where I’m sitting, his hand resting casually against my leg. 

    No, that other world was always impossible. We were always going to end up right here--for a moment, it feels completely inevitable. And for that same moment, I can see a whole future stretching out ahead of us and it is so lovely that it almost breaks my heart a little.

    Summary

    It's Christmas Eve, and the building is practically empty. Helene is in France, Richard has taken the opportunity to be even more absent than usual, and most of the rest of the staff, including, notably, the entire HR department, have already taken off for their various holiday plans. Up here on the executive floor, it's just Josh, Lucy, and an all-day game of All I Want.

    (A Christmas AU set during the holiday season prior to the start of the book)

    Summary

    This is why Nick had said, like, a year ago, that Jess couldn't move in, because she could see that Jess would kill them all in an explosion of glitter.

    (Because blithers wanted always-a-girl Nick Miller, played by Anna Kendrick.)

    Summary

    How about an AU in which Lucy and Josh end up living together after working together for only a month? (These two have nothing but good ideas!) Here's a look at the first few days of their domestic bliss.
