I think it might be best to set a certain number of kudos/comments that a fic has to be below in order to qualify as underappreciated, whether that's 10 or 20 or whatever number you want. Otherwise it might be hard for people to determine whether a fic is underappreciated enough.

Nominating and we smile but never say too much (http://archiveofourown.org/works/775655/chapters/1459082) by arabesque05 (2425 words) -- a portrait of Arthur's and Eames's relationship. It's from 2011 with just over 2600 hits, 181 kudos, and three comments, and it's underappreciated in my book! Would be willing to lead a discussion.
