Oh Swedge, this is hilarious from beginning to end! Love the use of the smile as a weapon, the Karen descriptives, and omg, the lack of angst at the end! Hee. So many more things, but I'll stick with those for now. Awesome!

“That’s the most lines you’ve had in a row all season. Congratulations.”
So my favorite fic line ever! PS. I have that People mag too. Well done!
Author's Response: It's out already? I'll have to go get a copy too. And thanks. :)

So funny. There really are too many funny things to mention, although "using lack of angst" was funny and so original.
I might have had the a capella pit singing "Zombie Jamboree", but then again, it's probably a better juxtaposition to have them singing something light. Ooh, "Wind Beneath My Wings." That'd be extra lame.
I recognized some things from TWoP discussions; you integrated those so well. Other things - well, I just don't know how you come up with them, but I'm just glad you did.
Author's Response: Thanks. About the song, at first I didn't have them singing anything at all and then I was like of course! They have to be!

It was unmistakable that it was Karen even at a distance because she had Jim’s desk super-glued to her rear end.
HA! This is great Swedge, my favorite thing of yours ever. (TWSS!) It's a new genre: The Office, Superhero Style!

"sounding much like a small town paper salesman who inexplicably has two of People magazine's most beautiful women in love with him."
I was laughing so hard at this. Also the Desk of Estrangement vs. the Desk of Love. Great stuff, Swedge!

I'm a huge fan of your adverbs like "filing cabinetly & bit partly," and this line: “But I want to prank Dwight. And tease Andy. And grow my hair longer again. Who knew my ears were this big?”
So funny! -CH
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it, he said respondingly.

"Just let me know when it's my turn to do something," Jim said, polishing up his fingernails as he does every hour to maintain his manicure. "I haven't been used much this season and would appreciate another line or two."
"Hold on a second," said Karen, in a businesslike way. She then said something sincere to a supporting character. "I have to do that every fifteen minutes, they say it's part of my charm."
Hahaha---Too true! This is quite funny, and not too "bad," I should say! Looking forward to more! -CH

She didn’t cry, she already had once today and she was trying to go on a cry diet
OK. That killed me.
Karen was more surprised than if Jim had kissed her in public.
Yep. Now I'm dead. LOL!
Fabulous work Swedge!

Ouch, oh ouch! OMG, this was brilliant! You crack me up on the TWoP forums and you've done it again here! LOVED the Jim descriptions! And this line: "'Bah, then we will fight to the death.' Karen exclaimed with all the personality she could muster, for a character that hasn't been fleshed out by the writers."
