  • Holtzbabe has a lot of excellent stories revolving around Holtzbert, aka Holtzmann x Erin.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

"Underneath the Electric Stars" by Holtzbabe.

  • Synopsis: A quasi-AU story where Erin and Holtzmann fall in love and get together concurrently with the events of the film. It uses pretty much every single Holtzbert moment from both the theatrical and extended cuts of the film, starting at "Come here often?" and ending shortly after the end of the film.
  • Comments: A very sweet, cute fic with such attention to detail and the plot that it very easily could've happened alongside the film. - Chris116

"What Erin Expected" by Holtzbabe.

  • Synopsis: A three-part saga depicting Erin as having become pregnant after a drunken one night stand. Holtzmann immediately steps in to help Erin through her pregnancy, and ultimately the two realize their feelings for each other and decide to raise the child together. The fic then moves through the two's life raising their daughter, Julia, from birth all the way to high school graduation.

  • Pairings: Erin Gilbert/Jillian Holtzmann
  • Synopsis: Erin lets her draw all kinds of thoughts and ideas on her skin, lets her scribble things that later get translated to paper, lets her just aimlessly draw the Fibonacci spiral and tells her that she missed a spot later on with a giggle that Jillian is sure she hears in her head. Jillian nods because she thinks she and Erin are this close to being happy, the only thing stopping them from attaining it completely is the fact that they haven’t actually met yet.
