This was excellent! I cried through every chapter. I love AU and of course, Jim/Pam, but was wary bc the description listed only "angst" meaning they DON'T get together. I took a chance anyway, and wow, I am glad I did.
I'm glad they talked honestly to each other ever since she told him she was moving. And they told each other they loved each other and kissed and (sob) he admitted he was still going to marry Karen.
Although you hint there is more to the Jason story ("Pam thought about telling him everything but") and you never explain it, other than that, I'd say change the status of the story to "complete". I almost didn't read it because who wants to get wrapped up in a story written a few years ago and abandoned? But, as I said, I am a sucker for AU... :)
Thanks so much for writing this. And I loved the touch that Jim had Karen's ring as proof. I wouldn't be surprised if Karen threw it at him.

Oh wow. What a different direction than I've read in other fics -- Jim actually getting engaged to Karen? Yikes! Glad to see that our boy finally came to his senses. I'd love an epilogue -- to see how a life with Jim AND art school in Rhode Island works out. Great job!

I loved that Pam is so successful and has a boyfriend and that Roy is engaged and that Phyllis let her visit be a surprise and that Jim wrote a book and dedicated it to her and that Karen is jealous and that Michael said what he did and of course that Pam still loves him. Whew. I guess I loved this whole chapter. Can't wait for the next one!

I don't very much like how you make them dance. =P
It's making me cry. Seriously. I thought the angst aspect of Jam was covered pretty well in the show, but this is making things ten times worse, and maybe I'll watch the next few parts of Jim/Pam angst storylines on the show by reminding myself that he's not engaged and she doesn't have a Jason and they're still in the office.
I am crying. God. One thing that made me smile, though? Kelly! Ryan! AW.
Cannot wait for an update!! WOO. This is ahhhmaazzziing!
Author's Response: As sick and as twisted as it is, I actually wrote this to make myself feel better. Now when I watch the show it's like, oh well at least Jim's not engaged and Pam's still in scranton. Sigh- it's the little things right :)

Oh my god. So I just finished reading The Awakening by Chopin and I was already crying and sad and seeing Pam/Jim parallels in that story...
And then I read this. A fic has never made me cry like this. You better be serious about not being evil. This next chapter better make me smile!
(p.s. I love this so much and the fact that it's making me so emotional is just proof of your ability to make this fic work)

ok, I am now tearing up! This is just too sad, please please please let Jim and Pam be together in the end...... I really don't want to cry anymore. It was beautifully written, i just pray this isn't anything like what will happen on the show.

Please update soon! I truly am looking forward to reading more even as my heart continues to break. I can't believe he already bought a ring for Karen. I can't believe he'd get engaged feeling this way - "He knew that he was just a few years from really, truly loving her- if only he could get some sort of lobotomy".

OMG, this was so heartbreakingly sad. How can he be kissing her and telling her she's perfect and not ask her to stay, not tell her he loves her. Aaagh. Between this story and the show last night I'm going to have an angst breakdown.

Thanks. Now I'm crying at work.
but seriously, folks.
This was written so well. And good for Pam! She's not going to stand around and watch it all happen.
Thank you so much.

And I'm now off to watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and cry a few tears and get a somewhat happy ending. Cause that, caused me some sadness. And I mean that in the greatest way possible. Awesome story, that hopefully ends not so bittersweet as these 2 chapters.

1) damn, you made me almost cry. damn you. very VERY few things have brought me close to tears in reading. So, I hate you :)
2) you mentioned house. okay, maybe no so much hate. I really enjoyed that episode. I felt so sorry for the firefighter, cause he had all that just for nothing. Poor dude.
3) you better post more....
thankfully, reading this chapter it wasn't as sad as the first one (i got teary eyed at the end of the last one). But i still want more
