[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6943494/1/Freaky_Thursday Freaky Thursday]] by Carly
* Recommended by WaddSpoiley
* ''Pairing(s)'': Slight Jeff/Annie
* ''Summary'': The group willingly swaps personalities for a day - what could possibly go wrong?
* ''Comments'': A terrific fanfic. The characterization is spot-on, the jokes are hilarious, the writing is proficient -- it reads *exactly* like an episode of the TV show.
** Seconded. I'm usually very skeptical of claims that something is "spot-on," but I could almost hear the characters saying the lines as I read them. If you want something OriginalFlavor, this is a must-read.

* Recommended by Moberemk, Doctor Nemesis, caughtbluehanded
* ''Summary'': The study group travels through time and space.
* ''Comments'': The group becomes the Tenth Doctor's new companions. This can only end hilariously for all.
** Seconded by Doctor Nemesis: It's beautifully done, everyone's perfectly in character and it's one of those genius ideas you can't believe no one else has had yet. And without wanting to spoil anything, it even fits in paintball! Paintball!
** Doctor Nemesis again: this fic now has a sequel by another author: [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/385200 Sociological Factors in Modern Genocidal Psychopathy]] by Palgrave. This time, there's Daleks...

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/301709/chapters/483017 Dallased (Intro to Dream Interpretation 101]] by lorax
* Recommended by Astrakhan
* ''Summary'': Abed's ''InspectorSpacetime'' dream makes the others insert themselves into other works, sometimes in... unusual ways. Semi-crossovers with ''{{Firefly}}'', ''{{Twilight}}'', ''Literature/HarryPotter'', ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''.
* ''Comments'': Not only are the characters perfectly written, but the dream sequences play with the group dynamics (and genders) hilariously. It's worth reading for [[spoiler:the Black Rider]] as Zoe in the ''Firefly'' pastiche alone.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/482616/chapters/839784 Night of The Living Abed]] by buffyaddict13
* Recommended by TheQuixoticStarChaser, caughtbluehanded
* ''Summary'': Abed discovers the reason he's always been different. Plus: fish stick jenga, inappropriate Pierceness, zombiehood and giant cookies!
* ''Comments'': This is insanely perfect for all lovers of Abed. All the characters read EXACTLY like they do on the show, and there are subtle crossovers with "Firefly" and other shows. There is angst involving mental health issues but also a wealth of quick wit, charm, and sweetness.

* Recommended by caughtbluehanded
* ''Crossover with'': ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''
* ''Pairing(s)'': Annie/Abed/Troy (mentioned)
* ''Summary'': Cecil interviews Annie, Abed and Troy for positions with Night Vale Community Radio. Minor bloodletting, mentions of zombie gladiators.
* ''Comments'': This fic is everything I could want from a crossover between these two shows. The weirdness of Abed, Troy and Annie is a perfect fit for the weirdness of Night Vale. And Cecil's views of the trio are hilarious and totally in-character.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/302631 22 Short Fics About Abed Nadir]] by [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/Margo_Kim/pseuds/Margo_Kim Margo_Kim]]
* Recommended by caughtbluehanded
* ''Summary'': Inspired by ''32 Short Films About Glenn Gould'' and the portraits of Despair in ''Sandman: Endless Nights''. Twenty-two views of Abed's life from childhood memories to his current coarse load.
* ''Comments'': A brilliant character study of Abed. Funny, adorable, insightful, sometimes heartbreaking, and of course, thoroughly meta.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/913932/navigate Screenwriting for Dummies]] by [[http://irisbleufic.livejournal.com/ irisbleufic]]
* Recommended by [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Tropers/Kelliannm Kelliannm]], caughtbluehanded
* ''Pairing(s)'': Troy/Abed (with Jeff/Annie and Britta/Rick [a.k.a. Subway] as secondaries)
* ''Summary'': An alternate Season 4 that picks up immediately after the events of 4x01. The series is now complete, although the author has stated intent to write an epilogue at some point in the very near future. For now, it stands at 70,000 words.
* ''Comments'': I saw [[http://mayhap.livejournal.com/249916.html one reviewer on LJ]] call this the Season 4 we would have gotten if the show had been picked up by HBO and Showtime (and if mainstream sticoms weren't so averse to letting bromance evolve into romance). Not only is each story in the series about the length of an actual episode, but they even have proper tag endings. I've never seen Troy and Abed so in-character, and this goes for the entire cast; the quirky world of Greendale Community College comes alive right down to background details and secondary characters.
** Seconded. If you read just one Community fic, make it this one. -caughtbluehanded

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/302238 But I Don't Know Nothing 'Bout Love]] by [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/littledust/pseuds/littledust littledust]]
* Recommended by WhimsicalCircles
* ''Pairing(s)'': Troy/Abed
* ''Summary'': In which Troy decides what he wants to be when he grows up, battles the ice cube of sadness, bakes some cookies, and figures some things out about feelings.
* ''Comments'': This is such a sweet, funny, good-natured, and overall delightful (in that very Community-like way) read that I can't help but urge everyone to give it a look whether they ship Troy/Abed or not. Though Troy and Abed are obviously the main features, the entire study group is present in some form throughout the story, and written so true to character that you can hear their voices as you read. Lots of funny little one-liners, and a seamless integration of deeper ideas about adulthood and responsibility into the developing relationship.

* Recommended by AndreaRavenscroft
* ''Pairing(s)'': Troy/Abed
* ''Summary'': Abed gets his shoulder dislocated and has to walk Troy through first-aid procedures. Shameless fluff!
* ''Comments'': This is a fanfic I wrote. It contains Troy/Abed. No sex scenes, but a very cute kiss. I'm rather impressed with it myself. Although I've checked it over a couple million times, it never gets old!

[[http://cereal.livejournal.com/146282.html nothing to say but the things i know]] by cereal
* Recommended by Liat
* ''Pairing(s)'': Jeff/Britta
* ''Summary'': Britta's apartment gets rats; she and Jeff end up as roommates.
* ''Comments'': This is overall wonderful. The author has a good grasp on every single character. When the rest of the study group appears, they're written well and add to the story, but it's truly the characterization of Jeff and Britta that not only stays true to how they are on the show, but adds depth. The writing is funny , and the chemistry between them is written perfectly.
* Seconded by Cettin. This is absolutely brilliant. The characterization is spot-fucking-on, and the chemistry's wonderful.

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5987298/1/Free_Counseling Free Counseling]] by JD Phoenix
* Recommended by Tropers/LargoQuagmire
* ''Pairing(s)'': Jeff/Brita
* ''Summary'': Jeff and Britta's reactions to the events of 'Modern Warfare'... as recorded by Professor Ian Duncan.
* ''Comments'': Having Professor Duncan narrate a what-if scenario is one of the best ideas I've seen played out in Community fic, and the story itself is hysterical. It also helps that Prof. Duncan's characterization is spot-on.

[[http://preromantics.livejournal.com/93876.html Un-needed Metaphors]] by [[http://preromantics.livejournal.com/ Preromantics]]
* Recommended by Fai-Mommy
* ''Pairing(s)'': Troy/Abed
* ''Summary'': Wherein metaphors need to be changed, Abed has trouble thinking right when Troy is touching him, Abed takes a punch, and there are references to Spiderman.
* ''Comments'': There are some bits of characterization that don't quite ring true to me, but over all I think it's characterization is very solid. Best of all is how the author maps out Abed's thought processes in a way that seemed completely believable to me, showing Abed as not slow or one dimensional as usually happens to {{CloudCuckooLander}}s in fic, but just...really weird. The fic also strikes a lovely balance between Troy's geekiness and normal-guy-ness.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/462515 Advanced Ambulatory Ichthyology]] by [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/gyzym/pseuds/gyzym gyzym]]
* Recommended by tgjer, caughtbluehanded
* ''Pairing(s)'': Troy/Abed, with a side of Jeff/Annie and Britta/Subway
* ''Summary'': In which Troy has a revelation, the Toyota Agony gets a lot of mileage, drama is resolved, Evil Troy makes an appearance, the Air Conditioning cult gets excited, and Annie's Boobs are immortalized on a pinball machine.
* ''Comments'': Picks up a few months after the end of Season 3, with pretty spectacular reference to all the canon. Beautifully in-character, and so cute it melted my brain.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/395859 Tangled]] by [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/thingswithwings/pseuds/thingswithwings thingswithwings]]
* Recommended by caughtbluehanded
* ''Pairing(s)'': Annie/Abed and Troy/Abed
* ''Summary'': "Do you want me to go down on you?" Abed asks, one afternoon, when they're watching ''My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.''
* ''Tags'': Oral sex, polyamory
* ''Comments'': A surprisingly sweet fic that explores Annie's and Troy's evolving relationships with Abed. The voices are spot-on, everyone's characterization rings true, and the sex scenes are ''amazing''.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/406882 Abnormal Psychology and Domestic Terrorism]] by [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/Annakovsky/pseuds/Annakovsky Annakovsky]]
* Recommended by caughtbluehanded
* ''Pairing(s)'': Troy/Abed
* ''Summary'': The one where it turns out Abed's been accidentally reenacting ''Film/FightClub'' this whole time.
* ''Comments'': This fic is just flat-out brilliant. I really can't say much more than that.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1236868/chapters/2538568 Shipper On Deck]] by [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/Veldritch/pseuds/Veldritch Veldritch]]
* Recommended by caughtbluehanded
* ''Pairing(s)'': Annie/Jeff, Britta/Subway
* ''Summary'': Abed and Rachel team up to try to solve the group's tangled romantic lives. This results in hook ups, break ups, an intervention, a divorce, a marriage, and ultimately a giant robot battle.
* ''Comments'': An [[AlternateUniverseFic alternate]] [[{{Continuation}} version]] of Season 5 that picks up soon after Troy leaves (we get updates of his progress around the world in TheTag of each chapter). The author is clearly a reader of ThisVeryWiki, as the titles of all the chapters (and the fic itself) are all the names of various tropes and, of course, Abed and Rachel do a lot of ConversationalTroping. Fun, funny and full of hijinks and adventures in friendship.

* Recommended by cosmotk
* ''Pairing(s)'': Jeff/Annie
* ''Summary'': He takes a sip because it's his damn graduation after all. He should be celebrating. Post-Advanced Introduction to Finality.
* ''Tags'': Romance, Rated M
* ''Comments'': An amazing, long (31 Chapters), fic about Annie and Jeff getting together immediately following season 4. The characterizations are spot-on and it really paints a very vivid picture of the show.
