Favorite Moment in a Fanfic

  • After It Airs: Seeing Steph come back with a great Toby fic
  • Always One Foot on the Ground (Coley): “I want you to third date me.”
  • Always One Foot on the Ground: Jim explaining to Pam why he likes her green shirt and yes, Karen is pretty, but he doesn’t remember anything she wore. 😊
  • Beyond the Horizon (agian18): Pam being held together with duct tape and thinking about Jim not getting garlic bread
  • “this isn’t bitch beer, Beesly” from Crazy Night in Philly (miserycrush)
  • Invincible Summer (shutterbug): That moment I knew I would reread it so that I could capture everything that I missed not knowing what I didn't know.
  • Nonverbal (BigTuna): at the end where Jim finally says hi.
  • Peppermint: When Dwangela taught me a new party game and described the most sensual "tasted like..." kiss I've read here
  • “Everything in Practical Magic (Coley) was adorable.”
  • in Restart (agian18) when Pam remembers she bought Jim the tie with crabs on it
  • Safe and Sound (NobleLandMermaid): This one is tough because there are so many great Moments, but probably when Pam and Jim are washing dishes together and when they arrive at Schrute Farms
  • Unwrapped (Coley): When Pam and Jim are playing twenty questions and we had a two-week cliffhanger after Jim asked, ""Can I kiss you?""
  • Unwrapped (Coley): When Pam slipped and fell and Jim exclaimed “You went down hard!” Legit LOL’d When Pam replied “That’s what she said.” (On and everything else about that fic)
  • From “Unwrapped,” the entire “Roy’s a fucking idiot” moment.
  • Wake Me Up (agian18): Pam shows up at Jim's door in Stamford,
  • Wake Me Up (agian18): Jim and Pam ordering a pizza while drunk on Valentine’s Day
  • Wherever I'm With You (Coley): “Football doesn't have bases, Dad” (two votes for this)
