    Summary

    “I am, of course, shocked.”

    Which, honestly, was an understatement. Just yesterday Chris was trying to process that his well working dream team was dead, and now here they sit hand in hand, with small smiles and a spark in their eyes that he hadn’t seen before.

    Suddenly, everything seemed to click. Ben and Leslie worked so well together because they weren’t just together professionally but also romantically.

    Summary

    "He looks at Leslie for a long moment, wondering if he has ever cared so much about something that he’d knowingly put his job on the line for it. If it’s possible he ever could. How does someone care so much?"

    Or: all the moments in his life when Ben Wyatt falls in love with Leslie Knope.

    Summary

    Ben gets sick before a big meeting. Leslie is there for him, both before and after. Even if it means maybe-breaking Chris's no-dating rule and also being forced to confront some of her less-than-platonic feelings.

    (I geeked out so hard while writing this. There is an entire chunk of their banter which is just me going buckwild about Jane Austen).

    Summary

    Ben is the worst. And by worst she means that he is adorable and is totally not terrible face-wise. But she still kinda hates him - no matter how cute his butt is - for wanting to slash their budget. And sure, it was nice of him to get Freddy Spaghetti back and, okay, sometimes they'll share a joke at the start of the EBTF meetings but that's it.

    // what if ben and leslie became friends during pawnee's government shutdown
