Oh, KEV! This is very, very great. You just don't see that much KevFic! I really love this line, it just sums it all up: <em>They stand there and let the sugar dissolve as everything melts around them.</em>
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! Kevin needs much more fic love. :)

Am I the only one who read a little too much into that title? Yes?
Author's Response: Hahaha, I wondered if someone would mention something about the things implied in the title. You win a prize for that. Perhaps a bag of M&Ms.

That was fantastic! I adored so much- the very poetic way you describe Kevin's relationship with M&Ms, Kevin giving Jim the $20, Kevin in general. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I like to think that Kevin views M&Ms in a poetic way, in his head. Which must be a wonderful place. Oh, Kevin. Thanks again!

Oh, that silly person who doubted your ability to pair anybody. What a ridiculous mistake! You are waaay too cool for that.
This is so, so hilariously Kevin that it's hard to comprehend. My favorite line was probably the one that you used as your summary -- what a great phrase. I loved your descriptions of the different ways Kevin eats M&Ms, and all the repetition of the number three. As for the Jim/Kevin, it's fabulous because it's understated and easy and just... not so dramatic and dark and heavy.
Love this. You are my hero.
Thank you! I'm so glad you mentioned the fact that it's not dramatic...I find that most slash (even though this is technically -ish) is always angsty and whatnot, because you need that...element of desperation to make the slashy interaction believable, you know? But with Kevin and Jim...it just doesn't fit. I love them and I love you and I really wish I had M&Ms right now. (random)
I don't think I've been anyone's hero before...I feel like Kevin trapping the bat!

Ha! That was perfectly Kevin! I toss M&M's in your direction!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I hope you don't mind I wrote it....and just so you know, I am on pins and needles in anticipation for your forthcoming Jim and Kevin. It will be amazing. :)

Oh, Kevin. I love him with his threes and his needing to eat M&Ms in the bushes to get some thinking done. This was a nice little moment between him and Jim.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! M&Ms are a great way to think. :)

Umm... I like it. I'm not sure exactly what to do with it, like where I file this in my head. Maybe that's what your slash-ish-ish is for. I need a new folder in my head for that.
Author's Response: Yes, Slash-ish-ish is now officially a new category for fic. Thank you!

If you'd told me the Kevin/Jim premise, I never would have believed it...yet you made it work. Funny and touching and great Kevin voice. Ah, but those Jim hair wings are inspiring. (Great title too!)
Thank you, Colette! I still have no idea how I made it work, but it all seemed to fit somehow. And I'm so happy you mentioned the title, it actually was an idea from fireworkfiasco and made me giggle so much I had to use it.
Also, Jim hair wings are wings that have launched a thousand fics. ;)

Ah, this was nice. Poor Jim --- and Kevin, *sigh.* I really liked the theme with the M&Ms, how it's sort of a sort of comfort for Kevin. It really makes me want to eat chocolate right now. Good job, stepping up the challenge.
Author's Response: Thank you! After I finished writing it, I was really sad that I didn't have any M&Ms around. Nothing like a couple of sad sacks in the bushes outside a wedding reception to make you need some chocolate, huh?
Date: March 10, 2007 08:28 am Title: Melts In Your Mouth
I like it (grin) [/Kevin]
And let Scrantonicity take off and Karen go out on tour with them. Yup, that would work. Hee!
Way to go on the Kevin & Jim in the bushes at Phyllis' wedding challenge! (The M&M's are under my desk)
Author's Response: Thanks, lisahoo! Haha, that would be a great way to get rid of Karen...although that would mean no more Kevin, so nevermind. Jim and Jim's hair wings need Kevin around.

I'm smiling. Who would have ever thought that Jim/Kevin could make me smile?
I don't think I've ever read anything from Kevin's POV before, but I really liked this. You did a great job of keeping the POV funny, without Kevin realizing it was funny. Niiiiiiice.
Thank you! It was hard to write and make sure it wasn't too...doofus-y. Oh, Kevin.
I'm glad it made you smile. :)

This was great. Kevin sounded so true to life and I'm glad he and Jim can talk so easily. I'm glad he told Jim about the $20 song, too. And he still has Jim's back! Jim may need that support soon!
Author's Response: Just wait, come next episode, Kevin will have to hold back Roy and save Jim from peril. They are so cute together. :) Thank you!

I'm a fan of the Jim-Kevin friendship...it seems so unlikely, yet it fits, you know? I can see Jim trusting Kevin with private thoughts, because, despite everything, Kev seems like a trustworthy guy. And, as a recovering M&M addict, I feel Kevin's pain.
Author's Response: Ha, when I was writing it, I realized I hadn't eaten M&Ms in a really, really long time. And it made me sad. So some of Kevin's M&M love was me working out my feelings, haha. I just love Jim and Kevin together, which is why the bonus deleted scene from The Merger made me so happy. You're right, it just fits. Thank you for the review!

I love your Kevin voice. Nice. It is good interaction between the two of them, and it is nice seeing Kevin being supportive of Jim who is feeling so bummed out at the wedding.
Author's Response: Thank you, Morning Angel! Kevin is way too much fun to write. Kevin and Jim should just be BFF. :)
Date: March 10, 2007 04:51 am Title: Melts In Your Mouth
I really didn't think this was possible but you did it!!! Fantastic. Who knew Kevin would have such sage advice?!?
Thank you so much, xoxoxo! Trust me, I didn't think it was possible either, I just enjoy a good challenge. :)
Oh, and Kevin is wise. Never forget that.
Date: March 10, 2007 03:53 am Title: Melts In Your Mouth
I love this! You captured Kevin beautifully. Very sweet interaction between Jim and Kev - and not just because of the M&Ms :-)
Author's Response: Thank you! I always think it's too sweet when Kevin "has Jim's back" during Boys and Girls. Oh, those two.
Date: March 10, 2007 01:12 am Title: Melts In Your Mouth
This was really great! It's so rare to read a Kevin fic and you did a great job! I especially loved how it was really the second one he wanted to say yes. Oh, Kevin. And I was strangely comfortable with the slashishness, so good work there!
Author's Response: Thank you! I think that Kevin and Jim actually have a lot in common. And I'm so glad you felt comfortable with the slash-ish-ishness, it was walking a fine line with these two and it's good to know I kept it...comfortable? I guess. Anyway, thanks again. :)

Okay, so its a little late and I'm a little tipsy, but I absolutely loved this! I'll come back and review again later, but I just needed you to know... once.
Heeeee, I love a good tipsy review, and this was no exception. Thank you!
