just add love, utterly lovely, heart and brain, vulnerable

"The Same Bit of Carpet" (The Office UK: Tim, Dawn, Emma, Gareth, David, OCs / PG-13)

Hi, everybody!

Happy birthday, [personal profile] tenaciousmetoo! I couldn't decide what to write to celebrate our birthday and all of the recent Yuletide planning reminded me that I'd long wanted to write a story for The Office (UK) in which the people making the documentary declare their allegiance to Tim. So, because Martin Freeman is unbearably lovely, you get this story. (My thanks to oxoniensis and kate_lear for Britpicking and betaing and generally being champs. Title from Tim's speech in the second half of the Christmas special: The people you work with are people you were just thrown together with. I mean, you don't know them, it wasn't your choice. And yet you spend more time with them than you do your friends or your family. But probably all you have in common is the fact that you walk around on the same bit of carpet for eight hours a day.)

"Dressing Up, Dressing Down" (New Girl: Jess, Cece, Winston, Nick, Schmidt, Furguson / R)

Hi, everybody!

I'd already worked out that I was going to write myself The Office (UK) fic for my birthday, so I was taken totally by surprise when an email from my lovely beta - alizarin_nyc, take a bow! - exulting over Winston's fixation on his cat prompted me to write this in a day. So even though I'm sure the upcoming episode will invalidate everything here, what the hell, have a second birthday fic! (You might need to have seen the commentary on the pilot to get the last joke of the fic.)
