"Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like a compulsive need to be liked. Like my need to be praised."

Summary:

 

What happened after Jim "struck gold" during his job interview in New York (season 3 finale) and before Pam went mining for celebrity sex tapes (season 4 opener), this chapter by chapter WIP has the story told through many points of view - none of them from the documentary film crew.

Summary:

 

Pam and Jim had many missed opportunities. The Dundies, Booze Cruise, The Client, Drug Testing. These are just to name a few, but fate still brought them together. What if the first missed opportunity was much earlier when they were just 13 years old. An AU like story based in canon.

 

No copyright infringement intended.  All I own is a love of these characters..

Summary: “Healthy ecosystems all have a natural balance. If you take something important out of the ecosystem, that balance falls apart, and the consequences for its inhabitants can be disastrous.”

Summary: We fall in love and become allies against the world.

Jim and Pam have been in an alliance for a very long time. It has nothing to do with downsizing (although there is chatting and giggling).

(AKA a series of moments in which Jim and Pam stand up for each other, throughout Seasons 1 and 2.)

Murder Pool by darjeelingandcoke Rated: T [Reviews - 5] 6 New!
Summary: Dunder Mifflin has a lot of employees who might be considered a liability. But are any of them actually capable of… murder?

Their co-workers say yes.

(A cold open circa Season 6. #3 in the Rejected Cold Opens series).

WARNING: There are comedic references to the death of an animal in this fic. No graphic description (or any - I would say there's nothing here near as disturbing as Sprinkles' death in canon), but if that’s a trigger you might want to give this a miss.

Cabin 6 by onedaymore Rated: MA [Reviews - 9] 7
Summary: Set after The Secret in S2, Dunder Mifflin Scranton embarks on a week-long retreat at a nearby campsite. Jim and Pam are forced to share a cabin, as well as dealing with the consequences of Jim's confession that he 'used to' have a crush on her. What'll happen?

Also, after John Krasinski got his muscles (I use the word 'got' lightly, since there was clearly a very long and rigorous process involved that I completely respect), he made a joke saying that he also had muscles on The Office. I know this wouldn't have been the case, but part of me likes to think this is canon, if you get what I mean :)
