Author: jheaton
Fandom/Pairings: Community; Britta/Annie friendship; Annie/Abed romance in the background

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~6,700
Disclaimer: Community and the related characters are © 2010 Sony Pictures Television Inc. and Universal Media Studios
Notes: Written for the brittaanniethon for the_windowbird, who asked for, among other things, deadlines, a snow day, Britta teaching Annie how to dance, and maybe a background ship/friendship, and did not want to see Jeff/Annie or Slater. (Or smut, but I wouldn't have written that anyway.) Thanks to wr1t3rbl0ck3d for serving as sounding board during the plotting process, and to dearygirl for her usual outstanding job as a beta reader.

This a comment fic I wrote based on the prompt "What if Annie's emergency contact was Jeff? (or vice verse) And he (she) didn't know about it until something bad or bizarre happened? (Especially if it was on paperwork filled out in S1 or pre-Anthropology...)" by lapacifidora in the October 22 milady_milord Ficcy Friday post. Due to the 4,300-character limit on comments, it was posted in three consecutive comments; the link below takes you to the first part. I've disabled comments on this post, so if you feel inclined to comment on the story, please do so over there, following part 3. Thanks!

Interesting side note about this fic: I had what I thought was a cute, funny idea for this story and incorporated it into the first draft, but what seemed cute and funny in the abstract turned out to be creepy and weird on the page. So I excised that part, did a little light rewriting to work around what I had cut, and bob's your uncle. The moral is that sometimes you just can't tell how bad an idea is until you write it down.
