Symmetry or somethingPairing:
Kelly/Erin; Ryan/Kelly; Ryan/PamSpoilers:
through "Company Picnic"Word Count:
Ryan does a number on Kelly's emotional well being, again. This time, Kelly finds a new solution.Author's Note:
Ahahaha, I did it! ... and it somehow became 10,000 words. In one sitting. Oh, I am feeling terribly drunk on MS Word and too much typing right now, y'all. But by God, I actually wrote this fic! (And it is a gigantic, frightening beasty thing, but whatever.)
I think a lot of this wound up exploring the shift in Kelly's character since season three -- is it just me, or has she become a lot less warm and fuzzy and ditzy and a lot more snappy? She talks smack, you guys! I figure it might just be The Further Inadvertent Evolution of Kelly, sort of like how she was a totally sane background character for the first like twenty episodes, but I kind of like to play around with the idea that it was kind of the result of Ryan Bailey Howard crushing her poor little heart.
Oh, God, I need to go collapse now.
But first, a moment of sadness: seriously, why are there no Erin icons??!?!
(p.s. This ship is called Kerin, Karen, Filippeli lives on forever, hurrah! I need to go to bed right now!)( 'Hey, so, listen,' Ryan says after they hook up, 'you’re not gonna go all crazy on me or whatever, are you?' )
