WARNING: THIS IS DARK AND EMOTIONAL. CHECK NOTES AT BEGINNING AND END OF CHAPTERS FOR WARNINGS. Mod Note: Graphic Drawing in Chapter 4
Meeting in an unusual place in life, a broken Jim and Pam try their best to put the pieces of their lives back together while not falling apart and back down the hole that they're trying to help one another out of.
Based on the song "How Not To" by Dan + Shay, because do I *ever* write something that *isn't* based on a song?
When the secrets of one employee cost the others twelve hours of peril, locked in the office under a hostage situation, true colors begin to shine through.
Essentially taking the General Hospital Metro Court hostage crisis from 2007 and pretending it happened in The Office, so if you've seen it, some plot lines will probably give you nostalgia... :)
The year is 1929. Pamela Beesly was doing alright despite everything going on in America. She was engaged to a miner, Roy Anderson, who swept her off her feet and took her to a new kind of life back in Chicago. After the stock market crashed she began to seek employment in order to stay afloat. Thanks to a sexy local club singer, in a pinstripe suit, named Jimmy Halpert and his in with the owner of the Green Door Tavern Pam was working nights as a waitress at the town's most popular speakeasy. Not to mention she was now employed by the largest Mob Boss in America. Michael Scarn.
Just as quickly as life can give you everything you've ever wanted, it can take it away on a dime. When tragedy strikes, will Jim and Pam's love be able to stand the tests?
Set during the summer between S2/S3.
For those of you who watched Lost or Once Upon a Time, the theme of flashbacks will be heavily played with in this one :)
Loosely set between S03E11, "Back from vacation" and S03E12, "Traveling Salesmen".
It's that magical Friday again, but Michael is too busy trying to improve his morale with the warehouse guys. And he is not afraid of bringing the big guns. After all, what could go wrong?
An arrest. A trial. A prison cell.
Jim and Pam fight to keep their hopes alive, while Dwight tries to uncover the truth.
TW: there is heavily implied domestic violence in this story.
I do not know I how to summarize this really.
The writing style is a little bit different, but I felt it was the best way to convey what I was imagining. It switches POV quite often, so watch out for that. I also tried to avoid names until a particular moment, so that's part of it too.
It's some post casino night angst, canon divergence, with a little bit of a cheesy ending.
On a road trip, Jim's memories keep him company.
Memories take place throughout Jim and Pam's relationship, from friends to husband and wife (pre- to post-series), but they are framed by events that occur during the Texas period (post-series).
Important note: The author has chosen not to make use of all available warnings. However, one warning does apply to this story, but has been omitted to avoid spoiling readers for a major plot point and story theme. This warning applies for Chapter 10. This note/reminder will be repeated at the beginning of that chapter.
NOW COMPLETE! Jim gets in an accident on June 10, and Pam gets to help. Only AU in that it deviates from main timeline between S2 and S3 (no different worldbuilding premise).
Disclaimer: I do not own the Office or its IP.
Pam shows Jim the power a good woman can have when all the chips are down.
AU: Approximately seven months post-Diwali, if Jim's little drunk-biking incident had been witnessed by a police officer.
TRIGGER WARNINGS: Suicidal ideation, references to past sexual abuse.
When Roy attacks Jim in the office, it isn't his first time hurting someone. Pam acts odd during her apology to Jim, and for the first time since the merger, he can't bring himself to ignore it. A two or three part AU based around “Cocktails” (S3,E18) and “The Negotiation” (S3, E19).
This is such a bad summary, I promise the story is better!
