    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.

    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

    The only undisputable fact Lucy Preston knows is this:

    She hates Garcia Flynn.

    For precisely one year, she's been subjected to Flynn's daily remonstrations about her low-grade quality as a fact checker and his penchant for calling her Lucia- a name close enough to her real name yet inaccurate enough to show her his apathy. Worse yet, they're confined to the depths of the basement with only each other for company.

    Every day, she stares across at the face of the man who truly scares her and is reminded that she should leave this place. But then, a promotion is announced and it seems like she'll finally have the chance to one-up her most bitter rival, leaving him behind to sulk in the basement office all alone to never be seen or heard from again.

     

    The prospect is a dream come true.

     
    But then, a moment in a stairwell changes everytime between them. Suddenly, Lucy is rethinking her declared loathing of this man. She starts to think, perhaps it's not a dream after all. Nor, a nightmare.

    A reality, instead. One that's in desperate need of fact checking.

    Summary

    "I don’t know why I do this. She’s feeling uncomfortable and was about to open herself a little, and I screw up. But this is what the game does to me. What she does to me. I can’t not play."

    Joshua's POV in the morning of the short black dress.

    Summary

    Imagine there was no black dress. There was no dream, no elevator kiss, no paintball, no tension at all. Imagine Lucy getting everything she wanted from the start -- except the one she really needed and deserved. This story covers what would have happened if the two stubborn corporate mules did not try to act on their feelings.

    Summary

    Josh’s eyes dart down to her toes as she kicks off her bright yellow heels. He fights a smile for what may be the thousandth time since he started at B & G one month ago. His eyes trail back up to hers, and her eyes are smiling victoriously at his. He looked away first.

    Of course, her mouth is a resolute line, as she saves her smiles for everyone but him. He guesses that is part of the game for her. They definitely have different ideas of what constitutes a victory in their games.

    AKA my idea of what was going on between our favorite spitfires one month after the merger.
