This is such an absolutely wonderful, beautifully written story. It makes me wipe tears from my eyes and then sigh in utter contentment. I adore that you wrote about all the stuff far in the future. Excellent job!

Old story time. Anyways, there is no such thing as too fluffy, at least not to me. And I am a huge fan of Daddy Jim. So win win... win.
Aww, singing Islands in the Stream. Oh yeah, he is great at that song.
So sweet. I just love daddy jim, and makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Haha.

This is lovely, Par5. Someone rec'd it today over on TWoP, and I followed the link and devoured it. I'll have to favorite it, so I can find it again. You just did such a wonderful job with this story.
Author's Response: Too Late Kev - thanks so much for your lovely review! I loved writing this last summer to ease CN-induced angst but I'm glad this summer that first date fics are the rage. It's a much happier place to be!

My heart was in my throat (Jim will be okay... right?) and then I smiled and smiled and smiled. Specifically, I really loved the moment when the producer sent Pam the footage with a note about how he was really sorry about Jim. I found this incredibly touching, because it brought home the fact that these are supposed to be REAL people, and it totally broke my heart to think that the real, adorable, funny guy named Jim was in a coma. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks Paper Jam! This should be called "How I Amused Myself This Summer"... I never imagined we'd still be "waiting" for Jim to wake up and see Pam after all this time! Anyway, thanks for your comments.

I love how you had Pam re-watch the kiss as many times as all the fans did.
Author's Response: Thanks Samantha! Yes, I think that was definitely based on personal experience!

Wow. That is all I can say. Wow.
Author's Response: Thanks Megan! I'm so glad you liked it.

Um. Jim has been in a coma for several months now. He should be getting intense physical therapy to prevent his muscles from atrophying. He will be losing a LOT of weight, since he will be on a feeding tube. Pam will not be permitted to crawl into bed with him. And by now his leg would have healed. You might want to condense this timeline a bit.
Author's Response: I'm aware of the physical implications of a long term coma and chose to gloss them over in favor of the story. Maybe I'm being glib, but this is just fanfiction. I would never publish a story with such gross inaccuracies. On the other hand, Kill Bill 2 has Uma Thurman in a coma for 4 years and and then she gets up and starts kicking ass right away so I guess the lesson is you can only get away with this if you have the clout of a Quentin Tarantino!

FYI, the word "discrete means "separate or distinct from". You use it in the sentence "Pam was discrete about making calls to cancel the wedding plans but the reception desk wasn't in a very private place." The word you mean to use here is "discreet". Similar spelling, different meaning. It means what you want--circumspect, modest, quiet, with discretion. A lot of people make that mistake. Just thought you should know.
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm aware of the difference - I just didn't catch it on the final reading before I posted it.

Nice dream sequence. I especially liked the "tone of voice" Jim speaks in when remembering the basketball game. Jim so rarely sounds "masculine" in these stories, but here you have caught a competitive young man's very voice: "faked him right out of his sneakers". Cute, if still a little soft for a man.
Loved Roy yelling "Sweet" when Jim announced his love for Pam. I laughed out loud at that part.
Author's Response: Thanks! Roy's catch-all response for everything...

I liked most of this story, but the last chapter was just a tad schmaltzy for me. *shrug* Nothing particularly wrong with it, but it was just a little too cutesy Brides Magazine for me. That's just a mater of taste, though.
Author's Response: Probably was too schmaltzy but I needed a little fluff!
