Oh, you perfectly captured this relationship and Jan's conflicting feelings - how she's probably so often asking herself "what the hell am I doing with this guy?" but then every once in awhile he'll just do something that'll make her melt. So sweet.

"Jan quickly developed a level of patience with Michael that she’d previously thought impossible. He would constantly say the wrong thing at the wrong time, usually in front of the wrong people, but it didn’t matter to her anymore. She was starting to see the man inside him. The man who was terribly insecure and unsure of himself at times, but also the most caring and good intentioned man she’d ever known. "
Yes, this is exactly on the spot. This is totally the reason Jan could tolerate his behavior in the last episode. Great job, I really liked this.

I'm going to turn into Kelly for just a second here, so bear with me.
OMIGOD! Michael and Jan are soooooooooooooo cute together!
Okay, seriously, awesome. Your Jan is so perfect. She would be constantly yelling at herself but then falling back into finding him adorable. Your title says it all. It's got to be that innate sweetness that keeps Jan coming back for more. That and he's really good at sex. Heh.
Also, the ending, perfect.

That was really, really nice. You captured the best of Michael -- so hopelessly, bottomlessly annoying, but with glimmers of profound underlying sweetness. I was really taken by surprise by how much I liked this!
