Great story! Oh, and the note at the beginning? I just got into John's books this year and I absolutely LOVE them. :) I'm somewhere in the Tomorrow series right now. (And I definitely wish they had an affair, too.)
I love John Marsden! I've read all of the Tomorrow Series, and I have the first book of the sequel series waiting to be read. Its an addicting series. Depressing a lot of the time (as war tends to be)
Thanks for the review!

Very sweet. I think their "confessions" are a little too "wrapped up", if you know what I mean. Kind of "this is what happened, and then this, and then this", mentioning all the things we fans want them to say. In reality, I think it would be choppy and interrupted with pauses and the other one saying something, and things would be more understated, not as many points stated. And could that be any more of a run-on sentence? Probably not.
I still just love the sound of that collage. And isn't it handy that it's hanging in the bedroom?
I'm glad for the happy JAM ending! Off to see the epilogue!
yeah, it probably is a bit to neat. oh well.
hehe, well, pam did look at it when she was lonely... at night... in her bedroom :). not that i am suggesting anything at all!!!!

I couldn’t leave without taking a picture of the most beautiful thing I saw.
*sighs happily* lovely. Why doesn't a Jim exist for every girl in this world? I think the world would be a much happier place.
Author's Response: I know! That is why I am working on a clone machine. I am not quite sure how I am going to clone a fictional character - but that is easily overcome by the fact that I don't believe that Jim is really fictional. And once I do, every girl in the world WILL have her Jim. But I get the first one!

Thanks for 2 chapters in a day, and the "dammit" in the prior chapter. I feel... strangely powerful... tingly... (/Vampire!Jim).
My favorite parts of this chapter are: Jim deciding to only bring wine so he can have two nights of Pam (perfect!), and Pam asking about Karen.
Haha, yeah. As much as I love this story, I just want to get it over with. Life is just taking over my life... and unfortionatly, afternoons like this (meaning when i can just read fanfic all day) are getting less and less.
so, its life to thank for the two chapters. you however take all credit for dammit.
and jim is smart, wine means two evenings with pam. he's not just a pretty face (but he does have a pretty face)

I think the prank is good. But I like a good "Dammit, Jim!" as a response, like from the pilot!
I think they should collaberate in Pam's bedroom. WHAT??? Who said that?
changed it to dammit jim for you :) hehe.
and, i don't write smut, i am far to innocent for that. but, yes, eventually it does move (even if just slightly) past pranking

This story is going so nicely. I love the description of the collage. I think many of us would like to own that collage...
Author's Response: i would so want that collage. just a tiny bit creepy obsessive, but i don't care. :)

Oh, I adore Nick and his meddling ways. YAY!
Thanks for two chapters in a day.
I know, Nick is a good meddler, isn't he. I will totally admit that I hadn't planned that. I was going to write something similar to what Jim got. But my fingers decided otherwise, so good.
right now its all in my betas hands, but, depending on when she gets it back to me and what i feel like, there may be two chapters a day until it ends. or i may make ya'll wait. depending on what i feel like. *grins evilly*

I really like this closure you gave Karen (and us). Great idea.
Author's Response: Yeah, I sort of was going to do something else, but, I felt that Karen deserved an end. And I sort of wanted closure for writing her. Who knows how it happened, but I like it
Date: March 25, 2007 08:42 am Title: Collaboration?
Ooh, nice. Teacher plays cupid a bit. And Karen is gone gone. Yay!
Can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: i know, i wish my teachers would play cupid for me. but oh well. and karen is gone gone. she is so far out of the picture. i couldn't go too long, because i needed happy JAM
Date: March 24, 2007 09:07 am Title: High School
YAY! Karen is outta there! FanFic can get rid of Karen a zillion different ways, why can't GD?
That said, I would really like to read more about why/how Jim got into photography...
Hum, because he is a great big weeny head.
That is a good idea about trying to explore that... not sure if I will do it justice, depends on how well I think it fits into the flow, but I will try it out.

Hey! Mikey Likey...well my names not Mikey but SO WHAT it rhymes. I do like this thought, rating a ten!
Hehe, you can rename yourself Mikey. I really want my real friend Mikey to start usin that phrase, but he doesn't want to :(

Jim should take photographs of Pam this afternoon. That's what friends do, right? Take photographs of each other? (...in various stages of undress? Whoops, that'd be "more than that").
One thing I wanted to mention about the dialog is that the Office people (and especially Jim and Pam) generally use contractions. The only time they don't is when they're really trying to accentuate something, like "I cannot believe you said that" or "tragically, I cannot" (Jim to past Jim). When I see "he is planning" or "I am really", it takes me out of the moment a bit, because it's not the way they'd really talk.
I like where this is going!
hum, me and my friends don't take naked pictures of each other... not sure if i want to know what you and your friends do :P
blah! i thought i caught all of those noncontractions. see, i read it about a thousand times, and i still miss stuff like that. which is odd, because when i really talk (and generally type) i have the worst grammar and phrasing ever. but in here, i am never using contractions... i will try to catch them for upcoming chapters (can't promise anything)
i am trying to decide whether or not to post another chapter today :)
Date: March 23, 2007 04:40 pm Title: Avoidance
That Wii storyline is really clever. Karen can't catch a break. She loves video games and Jim didn't even invite her along. Ouch! Its great when a story makes you feel bad for someone you're supposed to hate or visa versa. Great job!
Haha, nope. Poor Karen. I think I grew more sympatethic for her over writing this story. I don't always hate her, it depends. I think I mainly feel sorry for her because she is going to get hurt eventaully. because eventually jim and pam have to get together (RIGHT NBC!?)
and the wii is because i really think i want one. even thouh i haven't played video games since like nintendo 64 first came out

A warm monkey? Really? Are you Michael Jackson?
Author's Response: :P. Nope. Just I like monkeys. The normal ones that swing in the trees. And I learned about monkeys today. Actually, I learned how Hannerman Langerman (completely can't spell the name) monkeys, well, a male will usurp the harem and kill all the babies to mate with the mom's faster. but, there is complelling evidence to suggest it is both a natural behavior and a density stress (aka human caused) behavior.

Good chapter. I love Jim and Pam's awkwardness. "… that paper doesn’t sell itself." Yikes. Reminds me a bit of the break room scene in The Merger when Jim says something like "back to work" and does this lame thing with his fist.
I look forward to Jim and Karen arguing. Arguing, breaking up, yelling that they never want to see each other again, a little "why don't you go spend time with PAM!", you know, that kind of thing. (Slinks off to happy Karen's-gone zone.)
The awkwardness disappeats... eventually. althought it is fun to write :). i need to rewatc season three... cause i miss all of these little things *sigh* i can't wait for the dvd to come out.
didn't i say in my last comment that pam is going to be murdered by dwight and jim and karen are going to be happy and have lots and lots of babies... i don't know why you are anticpiating a fight :P

I had to start with this: I don't think I've mentioned before that the thought of John Krasinski (or Jim) with a camera taking pictures is just HOT. Okay, done being vapid and shallow. This is great. Incredibly well-written. The fact that they have something in common with the art... perfect. Thank you so much for writing!
wow, i forgot to reply to this. anyways. does jim/jk really need a camera to look sexy? i mean, i admit it, photographers are always sexy, but its just like, i mean, it is just added amazingly to the glory that is JK. (yeah, just a tad bit in love, i can live in my fantasy a bit longer).
thanks for the review
