I don't know how many people still check this group, but I'm really hoping for some help looking for a fic. I've been looking for it for a long time now but I can't even remember the title, so I can't be sure if maybe it's been deleted/the writer's livejournal was disabled, or if I'm just not looking in the right places.
It was an Annie-centric story with a Jeff/Annie slant about Annie relapsing. I know there are a few stories like that, and while I can't remember a lot of specific details, one I do remember is that Annie had a box she kept under her bed with reminders of her addiction in there, including a partially full bottle of pills. I'm pretty sure it was a oneshot (but a long one). I can't remember exactly when it was written, but I know it was written some time during the first three seasons.
If anyone remembers this fic and can point me in the right direction with a link, or even just the title or the author (or a "it's not online anymore" so I can stop trying to find it if that is the case), I would be super, super appreciative.
It’s at the 20 minute 57 second mark.
In episode 8 of S6, "Intro To Recycled Cinema" there's a part where Annie reaches into her shirt in the film they create (to make money for the college out of Chang's sudden stardom) and Jeff takes a good peak in there, lol. Later she improvises an "I love you?" to Jeff and he replies with "I love you" and pulls her to him until Britta reminds him that in the film Annie is his daughter, that he said she was his daughter.
Later, Abed and Jeff have this convo:
Jeff: "Every singly one of you is going to leave here except from me. Troy, Shirley, Annie's going to be president, even Pierce got to die... I finally know in my heart that I am literally going to be the last one of us here."
Abed: "You helped me learn something about film making that I think we all need to apply to life. It's ok to plan some stuff and it's ok to figure out what we did wrong, but our plans are randomly going to fall apart and our lessons are randomly going to be wrong, but if we keep the cameras rolling and shoot a lot of crap, eventually Annie is going to reach down her shirt and pull out a laser bomb. I didn't write that, we didn't plan that. God made that happen. God made this move, and it's dumb and we're dumb for being in it. Life is a big dumb pointless movie with no story...but somewhere in there, every once in a while..."
Jeff: "Annie reaches down her shirt."
So - I might be reading way too much into this rather silly episode, but I thought there's a layer here that shows once again that Jeff still continues to try and push Annie into the 'daugher'/'sister' compartment but he fails, time and again, as we know. Also - That convo with Abed describes Jeff's life well - he made mistakes, he didn't plan how things in his life turned out, and he has to live through all the crap, and his life might be dumb, pointless, and with no story, but every once in a while...Annie reaches down her shirt. And to him - Annie (forget the reaching down her shirt now) - is the good part, the surprising element, the saving grace in his life that is otherwise not what he planned.
