The most heartwarming first meeting for these two... I have no words. Wow.

So I'm way, way waaaaaaay behind on reviews and writing. And pretty much everything. It appears I get more done when I have more stuff to do. Oops. Anyway, this is kind of quick for which I'm sorry but I hope you know I do love this story. I've made no secret of the fact I love early day Jim/Pam so hearing them shy about calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend and accidentally letting slip the 'L' word is crazy cute. And since we still know little about Jim's parents, I choose your version of Jim's mother as the version in my head, it's that good. And the smuff ain't too bad either ;)

Hope to see something new from you soon..and from me. Eeep!

I'll admit I don't come over here much anymore. This story brought back so many feelings I use to have reading stories. Thank you for not giving up on Jim and Pam. I really loved it.

This is SO just what I needed. Early JAM is my weakness, and you outdid yourself with this one. I smiled throughout the whole thing. I am a sucker for Jim's parents. I just have them pictured in my head a certain way, and you wrote them exactly how I see them. His mom thinking he was on drugs made me lol, because you just know she didn't believe it, but she was like, wtf else could it be? And I could totes imagine Pam looking at the pics of Jim with his new nephew, and getting ideas for the future, and them both going to sleep thinking of their future together, but without saying anything LOL. I SO CANNOT WAIT to read the dinner. I am a sucker for early fics, so feed my addiction.

Fic - I'M TRYING TO WRITE, OKAY? I suck lol

I'm a little surprised that Jim's mother's ears didn't prick up immediately when he said "Pam." Surely she knows who Pam is? :)

Danielle, I am so happy you followed up on this idea.  I love this story, and I’m so very happy that you’re going to expand on dinner with the parents <3<3<3  He ignored the fact that the tears in his mother's eyes as they said goodbye reminded him of the tears that lined hers as they hugged, standing on the edge of the water that night. Oh, this is just heartbreaking.  And this:  He ignored the fact that his mother's voice wavered in the same way hers did when she said, "I wish you would."

"Oh, you mean my girlfriend?" he said before he could stop himself. "That… I mean," he stammered. "I'm not…it's…" He covered his face with his hand and rubbed his eye.



"Tell me more about your girlfriend," she gave, her voice quivering ever so slightly.
That little exchange?  Perfect perfect perfect!!!  The shift between the sadness of the past and the joy of the present (and future) is palpable.

“Jimmy, you were so sad for so long and … now, it’s just such a drastic change. Are you… you’re not doing drugs, are you?” She eyed him with an expression mixed of both sheepishness and pointed accusation.  Ha!  Of course his mom would ask him that lol :D

“Did you bring your camera?” “No, I left it at Pam’s. But I have a camera on my cell.”  Which will eventually be thrown out the window!  Awesome little detail there, missy.

He drifted to thoughts about the future, this time without the punch to his heart that usually accompanied such thoughts. What a relief that must have been for our boy.

“Sounds good. Luh, um, I’ll - I’ll see you.” Squeeeee!

It had been that first occurrence of them huddling together so close, of finally being where he stopped imagining he would ever be, mixed with all the other reasons why her lips would be the only lips he would ever kiss for the rest of his days until the last breath of his life, that led him to the jewelers that first week, giving a large sum of money to a beady eyed clerk in exchange for a solitary diamond that would forever signify the promise he had already made to her in his heart. As I was reading this, sharing in the happiness of this new relationship, I felt like I was in on a secret knowing that Jim already had the ring : )  And knowing that he had the ring already made this so old-Hollywood romantic:  It was the need within him to take things slow that led him to the door each night against his will, leaving her with a lingering kiss and the promise of tomorrow.

For three weeks, he held it in, held back, kept himself from saying it again. Guh.The pacing here is just so wonderful.  It fits that their first time wasn’t perfect and the fact that you didn’t go into details works so well with the tone of this story.
Waiting seemed to be a running theme in his life. Images of the wedding toast : )He wouldn’t tell her that she reminded him of his mother until years later, while they doted over their own children--the ultimate compliment from a man with a close relationship with his mother.   Beautiful job, Danielle.  Can’t wait to read your next work of art!

Sorry I'm so behind but I still love this! Mostly because it perfectly captures how a man can fall in love, have his heart broken and desperately try to move on only to fail miserably (and realise said love interest is the love of his life) all in the space of an eight hour workday. Oh unrequited love, it's such a delicious thing to write and/or read about! Can't wait for the Pam version :)

I LOVED THIS SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!! To many complements on the little details to mention. Loved the structure, sticking with the cannon, all of it. Particularly it only taking him like seven hours to fall in love. And YES, do Pam's POV! Please and thanx, I'll be looking for it. :)

I enjoyed your story -- poor Jim -- he's "screwed, and not in a good way." I think that what you wrote is exactly what happened on that first day. :-)

YES, definitely want to read this from Pam's POV.I was reading this, thinking, don't worryJim, YOU GET HER IN THE END lol.It was such a refreshing idea. As much as I LOVE first date fics, it was cute to see this side of their "first time" you know? God, you're truly amazeballs x

China was one of my favorites of season 7 because of Jim and Pam's conversation in the stairwell, so I was glad to see a story based on this! It didn't disappoint! You did a great job showing their commitment to one another. Thanks for all of the stories you've been writing! I may not get to review often, but I always enjoy them!

I really think you captured that bittersweet mood of this particular episode, and it rings true because we've all been there, you know? (I know I have.) Writing about regrets can be difficult, but you did a great job here - and you ended on a positive note, too! (Methinks Pam doesn't give herself enough credit on the show either.)

First, is it okay if I start a slow clap {I am a big fan of the slow clap} for you and the others that are keeping the Most Recent page exciting again with your wonderful story telling? I am a horrible person and have been reading but failing to review, but I promise to try harder and let you know how much I'm enjoying your work.

This story was awesome! I cannot wait to read more from you!

That scene in the show broke my heart, so I'm glad you decided to expand upon it. I love how supportive Jim is of her in this. It's so obvious how much he cares for her and wants her to feel good about herself, and it's just so sweet :)

Oh I could just picture this, these two. 

"You know what I love," he whispered, nudging the back of her head with his nose. "I love when you draw those cartoon pictures for Cece. She loves them, I'm telling you. I tried the other night while you were out with Penny, and she hated them. She said, 'Daddy, you can't draw like mommy, don't even bother trying.'" That is so adorable and so very Jim. 

I'm so thrilled that these past eps are inspiring you, Danielle.  You're doing a fine job.

Nawwwww so sweet. I can just imagine Jim whispering these things in her ear. I loved that moment in China because it was finally the show addressing something that I feel Pam *would* be insecure about and all Jim could do was wrap his arms around her. But you took that moment and made it even sweeter. Nice work! And I added it to the series - not quite sure why no one else can but as long as you don't mind waiting for a while, I'll happily add it. :)

Ahh! Sorry that it's taken me so long to get around to commenting on this. I really enjoyed this glimpse of Jim's family. They've given us a pretty good idea of who Pete and Tom are, so I like how you've given us an idea of who the rest of the family is and how they interact. It's nice to see how well Pam fits, and I love the way you wrote her relationship with Larisa. Nicely done :)

(Oh! And I forgot to add that I liked the hints about Jim buying the house-- especially Betsy's "they're just weird people" comment. haha)

Author's Response: No worries at all my friend! I got a sense that Pam fit in really well with the family, just by the way Pete and Tom act at the wedding, and the way Jim's parents and Pam are just standing there, I don't know, it just seemed like they were all close. Or at least that's what I would hope (if these were real people). So many more things on the way to your inbox, stay tuned! :) Thank you for getting this started.

I love reading about the two of them celebrating birthdays, and this was so sweet. I can definitely see Pam surprising Jim by showing up like this. :-) (Also, good job making the bluetooth his present!)

Author's Response: Thank you! I am so happy that you caught the bluetooth reference! I don't think the pickles and Swiss cheese thing really went through, but I didn't want to change it since this was written a long time ago. It's great to hear that you enjoyed this, thank you so much! :)

Mind?  Seriously?  I am just loving the activity in the archive.  I also love being a fly on the wall at this family meal.  I enjoyed feeling like an insider, knowing all the things to come--the house, the baby, the wedding. 

Here's an idea I would love to see you expand upon:  “There’s joy in his eyes now. I know you put it there.”  When Jim and Pam finally got it together, this was one of the things I would think about--his family's reaction to his happiness after all the sadness.  Surely they noticed the change. 

Thank you, once again, lovey, for helping to get things moving again.  xxx

Author's Response: Nancy, I love that idea and just put it in my big idea folder. Thank you! I've got it all mapped out and everything. I'm so happy to be part of the getting the archive going event that we're trying to make happen. We don't get enough of this family, or their extended family, so hopefully there will be more of these stories popping up with more insight. Thanks, again, the idea is going to work out wonderfully. Much appreciated! :)
