Word count: ~1100 for this installment, ~47,300 for the series WHICH IS NOW DONE.
Disclaimer: I don't own Community, but Dan Harmon doesn't own the Space Jam DVD which someone brought into Harmontown for me and which Dan has so far failed to deliver to me. So there.
Spoilers: Through the end of Season 2.
Summary: Chapter Ten (in which Annie is just freakin' loved). Starring Patrick Winger, but also, Jeff's libido. It's more like an epilogue, but you guys, CLOSURE.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. It's done, y'all.

Previously: Chapter 9B.


Come on, you've waited this long...Collapse )

Title: Keep Your Secrets With You
Author: veryspecial0ne
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~5900
Disclaimer: Shippers gonna ship, ficcers gonna fic. Neither of those gonna own Community OR Pretty Little Liars.
Spoilers: Very mild general plot stuff from all aired episodes of Community; really nothing from PLL.
Summary: Jeff Winger/Spencer Hastings. Yes, I went there.
A/N: So this was originally written in small vignettes which I then emailed todearygirland0penhearts, who then proceeded to send a lot of caps lock my way, which has been replaced by the separating dashes for your reading pleasure. Beta'd by0penhearts, who is incredibly unfair and demanding and a flawless human being. Takes place after S3 of Community and after S2 of Pretty Little Liars if you really need a timeframe. Title is from "Your Protector" by the Fleet Foxes.


You know what they say: Jeff Winger never learns.Collapse )

Title: Ode to Optophobia, or: Ten Men That Loved Annie Edison (17/19)
Author: veryspecial0ne
Rating: R for the whole series, to be safe.
Word count: ~2200 for this installment, ~43,000 for the series thus far.
Disclaimer: I have now been tweeted by Dan Harmon, Alison Brie, and Ludwig Goransson, and Joel McHale DMed me once. I'm pretty sure that's the closest I'll ever come to having any ownership over Community.
Spoilers: Through the end of Season 2. Then becomes AU, but I do tend to slip in minor details from current episodes. Let's be honest, I'm assuming everyone reading this is caught up to the latest airing, if not spoiled for everything they could find.
Summary: Chapter Nine (in which Annie is loved so much it might cause a little insanity), Part One. Starring Jeff Winger. 
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. Oh my god, you guys, I actually finished another chapter. The end is in sight and it WILL come, I promise. Thank you all for sticking with me.

Previously: Chapter 8B.

Jeff had been on edge for a week now, ever since he had made the restaurant reservations at that restaurant his assistant had found...Collapse )

Author: veryspecial0ne
Rating: PG
Word count: ~2500
Disclaimer: Consider the ownership of "Community" DISCLAIMED.
Spoilers: Assumes general knowledge of plot points in season three thus far.
Summary: Annie's first week at the age of twenty-one.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "1921" by The Who: "Got a feeling 21 is gonna be a good year..." Anyway, I totally wasn't planning on writing this tonight...or really ever, it's just an idea that struck like two hours ago. But I was in the mood to write, and I knew I didn't have it in me to finish the next chapter of OtO just yet (though it's coming), and now it's a quarter past three in the morning and here we are. This is based on my assumption that Annie's birthday is the same as Alison's, December 29th.


It's Wednesday night -- well, technically, it's Thursday now...Collapse )

Rating: R for the whole series, to be safe.
Word count: ~2100 for this installment, ~40,800 for the series thus far.
Disclaimer: I have now been tweeted by Alison Brie, Ludwig Goransson, and TWICE by Dan Harmon. I'm pretty sure that's the closest I'll ever come to having any ownership over Community.
Spoilers: Through the end of Season 2.
Summary: Chapter Eight (in which Annie is loved from afar again, until she's not), Part Two. Starring Pierce Hawthorne. "Pierce hemmed and hawed about whether or not he'd be willing to do it all the way through her explanation, pretending he hadn't known from the second she asked him that he'd join in on whatever her joke was."
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. This is my reminder that if you haven't listened to Danielle Ate the Sandwich yet, do. It's very, very nice. Also today on Facebook she was lamenting the necessity of a HuluPlus account to watch season two of Community, and I took it as a sign I needed to finish this chapter. SO HERE IT IS.

Previously: Chapter 8A.

Pierce arrives down in the building's lobby at 12:13, and precisely two minutes later he spots the figure of Annie Edison through the window, looking up at the large number proclaiming the building's address.Collapse )

Spoilers: Through the end of Season 2.
Summary: Chapter Eight (in which Annie is loved from afar again, until she's not), Part One. Starring Pierce Hawthorne.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. Yes, I still exist. Yes, this story will get finished, I promise you. WHICH IS MORE THAN NBC CAN SAY. (Nailed it.) I'd like to say that this chapter is so delayed because I find Pierce so hard to write...but that's only a little bit of the reason. Mostly it's that I have a job now. Blech.

In other news, I have a new Tumblr blog. Donald's new album is out, and since I've been pissed at NBC I've been in the mood to listen to rap, and so I have created CHILDISH COMMUNITY, in which I put Childish Gambino lyrics on Community screencaps and amuse myself for hours on end.


Previously: Chapter 7B.

Pierce supposed that pushing and testing people could be defined as a sort of hobby of his by now.Collapse )

Rating: R for the whole series, to be safe.
Word count: ~2000 for this installment, ~36,000 for the series thus far.
Disclaimer: I have now been tweeted by both Dan Harmon and Alison Brie. I'm pretty sure that's the closest I'll ever come to having any ownership over Community.
Spoilers: Through the end of Season 2.
Summary: Chapter Seven (in which Annie is loved belatedly but loved well), Part Two. Starring Troy Barnes.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. So it's become pretty clear that this blitz is not gonna finish up before the premiere in, oh, fourteen hours or so. I tried. I'd still like to finish it as soon as possible, so let's aim for early next week?

The other thing I'd like to say in this A/N, because I sometimes say it in my comment replies but don't think I've ever said it up here where the real bid'nass goes, is how much I totally, totally love you guys for faithfully reading and reviewing, especially when I'm tearing through chapters so fast I feel like I'm barely leaving you room to breathe. They're still so thoughtful and overwhelmingly positive and supportive, and they're making writing this story ten times more rewarding, so thank you!

Spoilers: Through the end of Season 2.
Summary: Chapter Seven (in which Annie is loved belatedly but loved well), Part One. Starring Troy Barnes.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. Believe it or not, this is the very first chapter of this story that I wrote, and one of the reasons the whole story exists. So plot similarities to other recent fics, etc really are purely coincidental. This chapter may be a bit on the unpopular side for reasons that will become clear, but as always I'm happy to discuss anything and everything in the comments!

Troy had Annie cornered, having kidnapped her after her ethics class and dragged her to the cafeteria for a cup of coffee before she could barricade herself into a corner of the library with a fortress made of textbooks and semester-old notes in preparation for next week's finals. Collapse )

Summary: Chapter Six (in which Annie is loved by someone not used to showing it), Part Two. Starring Abed Nadir.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Title is from the song "Ode to Optophobia" by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. I know, I'm already behind on the blitz. I'm hoping to catch up tonight when I get home from work. In the meantime, please keep reviewing! It really helps me when trying to crank these out to know that people are not only reading these chapters, but reading them in such an involved, thoughtful way. I appreciate all the feedback you guys have to give me.

ALSO: Is anyone else having problems with LJ-cuts? Mine are seriously malfunctioning. I can't make new ones right and my old ones seem to have disappeared.
