Chandler follows in his mother’s footsteps and writes erotica under a pseudonym. It’s not like he’s going to tell anybody though—even his best friend and roommate Joey isn’t entirely sure what Chandler does for a living (he’s a transponster? Is that even a word?). So Joey does a little investigating, but he’s absolutely not prepared to discover that he’s been Chandler’s personal, uh, inspiration for the hunky male love interest, Dr. Drake Ramoray.
The one where Chandler is awkward and hopeless and desperately in love with Joey. But it’s not like he’ll actually admit it...even when they start dating. Set after 1x10 and runs through the middle of season 2. Canon events and dialogue are weaved in throughout.
Chandler's an FBI agent in need of a case; Joey's the simple-minded, good-natured caporegime working under his father, the head of the Tribbiani crime family. But Joey's more interested in Chandler than taking over the family business, and Chandler's growing pretty fond of him too. When the line between friend and target begins to blur, Chandler has a decision to make. S1. AU.
