Better Man by KindSoberandFullyDressed Rated: K [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: Although Pam knows Roy isn't perfect, she also knows that she can't expect anyone better than him to come along. Then one day a new salesman starts at the office. Inspired by Pearl Jam's "Better Man."
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A Pam POV stretching from before Jim arrives at Dunder Mifflin to somewhere around Stress Relief, and a lovely little walk through her head - one that also illustrates the parallels and relationship between her failed engagement to Roy and her parents' unhappy marriage.

i really like talking to you by hawrthiacoopri Rated: K [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: “I like talking to you. I LOVE talking to you. You’re the best person I talk to here.” “I’m the only person who you talk to here, Jim.” - jim gets a little drunk cleaning up after a party and pam is stuck in the office taking care of him until he sobers up. sometimes things are cliches for a reason, folks
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: It's Jim. It's Pam. They're cute. He's drunk. He confesses his feelings. They make out. Listen, if you're reading this, do you actually *need* more than that to want to read this story?

Not the Type To by lodessa Rated: K [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: Roy can see them before he opens the door, as he walks up the stairs. Jim’s leaning in towards Pam and she’s laughing at something he’s just said. She never laughs like that at anything Roy says anymore. When he sees Roy, Jim will straighten up and Pam will smile forcedly. Roy knows how things are. He isn’t as stupid as everyone seems to think.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A very good Roy POV piece if you want to understand Roy better without someone trying to convince you you should like him.

Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A sweet but mainly hilarious glimpse at Pam and Jim making a game out of hiding their new relationship from their co-workers during the post-The Job summer. There are just some killer lines here.

Morning Light Shall Burst Bright by cashewdani Rated: K [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: "Michael, you can’t just demand that everyone goes to the Poconos this weekend."
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: A combination of BusinessTrip!Fic and Sick!Fic, set in late Season 3. I.E. Michael makes everyone go to the Poconos, Jim gets bronchitis, and Pam offers to take care of him so Karen won't catch it. Flawed, but some solid Season 3 feels and good use of the supporting cast.

The Roof by lalamonstah Rated: K [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: Jim has a secret agenda including Pam, and the Dunder Mifflin cameramen are interested.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: Jim proposes. Pam says yes. They get married. From the POV of the camera crew that's gotten way too invested in this story. If that intrigues you, read on. (AU in the "this is a prediction of what would happen from S4" sense rather than the "this is the story set in a different universe" sense.)

The Pilot by snoggings Rated: T [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: The documentary begins filming at DM Scranton. The camera guys become intrigued.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: One of the great missed moments of S1 (Jim finding out about the fake firing) and the story of how the camera crew first noticed what was between Jim and Pam. Good for anyone intrigued by the behind-the-scenes machinations of the crew.

Don't Fall in Love with Everyone You See by bayloriffic Rated: K+ [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: Kelly’s probably had this discussion about a million times in her life, but she’s so excited that Jim is actually playing along that she doesn’t mind. Plus, she really would like to know his opinion on this. It’s always good to get a guy’s perspective when it comes to romance and dating, even if that guy doesn’t understand the most amazing movie of all time.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: Jim/Kelly during the dark days of Season 3 (although it *could* be read as Jim/Kelly friendship if you're insistent on canon compliance), very in character for both of them, featuring a mostly oblivious Karen and world's worst boyfriend Ryan and Jim having a very predictable take on Pretty in Pink.

Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke

Summary: Dwight's your person and he's Jim's person, and you're both going to help him together. Pam and Jim understand each other a little better, these days.

Not Those People by exquisitelymorose Rated: T [Reviews - 0] New!
Summary: "She brushes a thumb over the skin of his hand and he’s sure his heart is breaking inside his chest because he can’t do this. And he can’t let her do this. They’re not these people. This, this moment, his hand in hers, this is okay. They can wake up tomorrow, see each other at work on Monday and laugh about too much beer and a dumb moment with a high five that ended poorly. But what goes on beyond that… they are not those people." A story in which Jim innocently invites Pam to his house party and she comes feeling a little upset. But he puts his feelings aside and tells himself that tonight, he’s going to be a good friend. And what do good friends do when their friends are in pain? Help them forget with a little fun and a lot of booze. A one-shot of our favourites in one of many moments they could've slipped up while Pam was with Roy.
Recommended by: darjeelingandcoke
Recommender's comments: This is a quintessential Season 2 one-shot, featuring all the greatest hits: Pining White Knight Jim, Almost About to Come to Grips With Her Feelings Pam, Jim and Pam Being BFFs and Not Just Secretly in Love, Roy being a jerk and everyone being juuuuuuust a little drunk. Fabulously well-written, very in character.
