Awesome use of Dwight, and totally something I could see him doing. Loved the line about bringing balance to the force, because you know in his crazy mind he would think that it would be unfair to challenge his nemesis Jim in such a weakened state. Cute fic!

I can't believe how much I love Dwight in this fic. I think you addressed the Pam/Dwight relationship very well and I really wish that The Negotiation would have gone something much more along these lines. It would have been so much better than what we got. Great fic!

Aw, this was so sweet! I never would have imagined Pam confiding in Dwight to that extent, or Dwight caring about them getting together to that extent, but you made it seem very natural and believable! And very cute. They should totally become friends for real on the show.
Hope you don't mind me pointing out little errors, but I noticed you made a typo in Pam's line about Angela not minding if Dwight had "friends that our women" and there also appeared to be a word missing or something in "an email from Jim almost immediately these thoughts".

Wow! I am always so thrilled to read your great Jim and Pam, and with this I learn you write Dwight extremely well, too.
He was so matter-of-fact and I loved that he checked in with Pam 10 minuties before their scheduled departure.

Oh jeeze. I don't even know what to say. I could quote my favorite parts but there are just too many. Your Dwight is so fantastically spot on it's scary. I absolutely love the idea that he really has noticed Jim and Pam's interactions (Hey, Angela did--Pam Pong), and that he would help Pam out like this. And the JAM? Top notch.
Thanks! I think I had to stretch into new writing territory taking on Dwight, so I'm so pleased you think I worked it out. [/Randy Jackson] (Sorry, too much American Idol already!!) And you are right - Angel had Pam Pong, and you can't tell me she didn't tell Dwight about it.

Okay, this is totally the wrong word, with wrong connotations... but god... PRECIOUS. Seriously, this was just... precious. I sound like my grandma, I know, but this was seriously fantastic. I love your Dwight. So much. He's just so perfect... this will restore balance to the force... hehe. Thanks so much for writing this. It is amazing!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, molly! I wrote this because I do think that there's a special bond between Dwight and Pam that we never see except briefly like when he had the concussion and when he found her in the hall crying. And I do believe that Dwight has good intentions, no matter how weirdly they might come out.... Thanks for the review!

This was incredibly sweet. I love how we now all have this idea that Karen's going to break up with Jim once she finds out about Roy. (I think she should!) Your Dwight was hilarious and great. My favorite exchange was this one:
“Fact: the more Jim talks to you, the better mood he is in at work. Fact: He's been incredibly morose lately. I can only conclude you two have had some sort of falling out.”
This was incredibly Dwight-like to me. I loved it! It totally makes sense that he would spend time logging Jim's moods and how they correlate to whom he interacts with. Nice! I didn't even think about the five elements. Great job.
Author's Response: It makes absolutely NO sense to me for Karen NOT to break up with Jim once the Roy thing comes out. It is such a big secret that Jim clearly kept from her that she'd have to be a fool......but then again we thought that after he admitted still having feelings for Pam. I do wonder if what really happens is that this causes Jim to have just enough hope that Pam is interested that he drops Karen to open up the path to Pam. But hell, what do I know??? :-) Thanks so much for the review!

Oh, happiness! Moxie makes everything all better!!!
Best. Dwight. Ever. Even without a concussion.
Now for a smutty chapter 2?
Author's Response: hahaha - you know me so well! As of now - no plans for a chapter 2. I'm glad you liked my Dwight - I'd never written him before like this, and I thought it was fun...!

That was so delicious! I loved the fact that Dwight was the one giving Pam advice, partially as a friend and partially so he could understand his enemy better.
And Jim and Pam? Simple, sweet, and to the point. Awesome!
Yes, you know that there HAD to be both a logical and personal reason for Dwight to have any interest at all in them begin together. (Deep down I think he would do it because he feels affection for both Pam and Jim, though he'd rather give up his beet farm than ever admit it!!)
This leads nicely into Dwight being a groomsman in the wedding..... ;-)

Usually it's the threes that have a yen to go wandering
Love that line.
And Dwight, advising Pam re Jim and the "worst-case scenario"? That's exactly what he would come up with.
she wondered if he was trying some sort of mind control technique
Hah! The Jedi mind trick only works on Michael!
“So do you think we even stand a chance?” He said, his familiar smile returning.
“You mean considering we've made a complete disaster of it so far?”
Hee! I like that exchange. Well done!
Author's Response: You've touched on some of my favourite bits as well. Keeping Dwight logical and getting something out of helping was really crucial, I thought in writing him well. And I'm starting to believe you when you say they'll get together with less words than more....

Excellent Dwight and Pam. And I loved the conversation between Pam and Angela in the bathroom. Go Dwight :)
“Because he's been a real friend to me lately, something I haven't had from anyone else in a long, long time.” Go Pam!
Author's Response: Oh, thanks, honey! It was fun to stretch a bit and try to capture Dwight and Angela's voices... I might have to do something with them again soon....

This was great! Hehe, leave it to Dwight to rationalize the stupidity of Jim and Pam--so perfect :)
Reading this left me with the best image ever:
Dwight scrapbooking!! hee
Author's Response: yay! I was wondering if anyone was going to pick up on that little throwaway line. I have no doubt he has some little hobby like that!!
Date: February 27, 2007 01:44 pm Title: Chapter 1
Seriously, how is it that you are so good?
Because you are SOOOOO GOOOOD.
I love that Dwight is the one pushing Pam to do something, even if it is just so that Jim will be more predictable. I also love the idea of Pam reaching out to Dwight. And Angela!! Pure magic.
Seriously, I could sit here and sing your praises all day long, but that might begin to annoy you.
btw, the sock? I'm confused. Is that from Michael's laundry?
Anyway, thanks so much for this.
Author's Response: Annoy me? Please - I'll take annoyance like that any day!! ;-) As for the sock, yeah - you'll never know what you'll find inside Dwight's car!! And I'm delighted you liked it so much - writing Dwight was a new fun experience for me.

Moxie. i know i can always count on you to make my days just a little brighter! your five things are woven in so seamlessly, i forgot to look for them and had to reread! which of course, was no problem for me. ^_^ i love this because i can see it happening! now don't you feel better knowing you've made the (Office) world a better place?
btw, this line:
"You are in love with Jim." Dwight said it more as a statement-of-fact than a question.
that got me right here. wow.
Author's Response: hey - thanks for reading, reviewing, and being so encouraging over at TWoP!! I'm so glad you enjoyed this!
Date: February 27, 2007 01:38 pm Title: Chapter 1
I loved Pam and Dwight, and Angela giving her permission. SO cute. And Dwight trying to hook up Jim and Pam to restore balance in the force. Ha! Nice job!
PS: Dwight drives an '87 Trans-Am [/nerd]
Author's Response: Duh! I shall immediately go and be extremely punished for my sin. Thanks for pointing that out!!
Date: February 27, 2007 01:30 pm Title: Chapter 1
good stuff, here. i may have to try my hands at this sort of story before long. but yours, i dig it.
Author's Response: thanks! And definitely give it a try - it's so much fun to be in charge of what goes on with these people..!!
