As much as I really really love the way the season actually ended and all, this is such a really fantastic go at a way that could have actually salvaged the Karen character for me, and restored some of the integrity they had going with honesty. This is FANTASTICALLY DONE! Great job. (And I'm not even done....)

We have to save ourselves," she says out loud to the darkness and the sparks of worry and regret disappear.
Beautiful, beautiful sentence. Dream sequences are a tried-and-true soap convention; I love how you're playing with all of those in this story!

"friends don't let friends eat feet" That is hands down the funniest thing I have read at this site!! I love this story. it is a great original way of dealing with this whole mess of Jim/Pam/(and that doggone)Karen.

NOOO! How can you leave me like this?? How could Pam leave Jim like that? Unfair! I call foul. Please update as soon as possible so I can find out where Jim is.
And Pam should have taken Jim into his apartment and made sure he got all showered and nice. Really, it's just the polite thing to do. And if she happened to get an eyeful while she was being a good citizen, well...
Seriously, enjoy your weekend, but I'll be looking for your update when you get to it!

I love this part: "In his eyes, she could see shadows of a winter night on Lake Wallenpaupack, the glint off of the embossing on wedding invitations, the shimmer of a periwinkle dress and the embers of one hundred other disappointments."

I was going to just review at the end, due to time constraints (finale in 3 hrs, 10 m!!!), but I had to say that this is my favorite chapter so far. Pam-preciation day, Creed hugging Meredith (and making out! Meredith isn't going to remember that, but neither will Creed, so...), Jim wanting to get flowers. Just all so good.
And if I had a dime for every time in my life that I had found occasion to use that old adage, "Friends don't let friends eat feet", I'd be... well, no better off than I currently am, I guess. That was so funny.
All right, so on to the next...

Very nice. I love your description of his warmth, and how it is different from the remoteness of the stars (and evokes the fire she ran through). Ahh, these two need to find a way back to each other- if only for my sanity!
Author's Response: For my sanity too!! Thanks again for your review.

I really loved this story. It felt true to all the characters, with great continuity but not the sort of sly winking that fans often slip into. The drunken kiss was adorable. Really excellent work--one of my favorite Office fics ever.
Author's Response: Wow. Thank you so very much for your kind words. I'm honored that you like this....really honored.

Pam-tini's all around! The only constr. crit I offer is that I can't see Phyllis saying 'reamed'. I loved the Karen part of this story and can't wait for more. good job.
Author's Response: Thanks for the contr. crit for sure. Thanks for your comments. Even though I've kind of gotten rid of Karen, she'll be back.

I would like to see 2-3 more chapters, hitting on them truly getting their friendship back, which Jim quickly segues into a quick, awkward invitation to dinner or something, and then them together a new couple.
You're doing a wonderful job! Can't wait for more.

I love all the soap opera references in here....I would love it if they actually addressed all the drama on the show like this.....kind of making fun of itself. Anyway I really like how you gave Karen some dignity. I love the sweet Jim in this last chapter. I think it would be good to write about how they first started going out before jumping ahead to the future. But either way I can't wait to read what you come up with next!
Author's Response: Thanks so much Beth....and I have decided to bring them together a little more slowly.

That was a great chapter..I think you shouldn't jump to the future just yet..Maybe another chapter then jump..But then thats just my opinion..
Author's Response: I think I can add a little more to this. Y'all have inspired me! Thanks so much for your comments.

I really like this take on post beach day. Your karen is just awe inspiring. I think I fell a little in love with her. And the post it was perfect.
Author's Response: Awwwww.....thanks so much. I really appreciate it.

Oh, I'd love to get a few more chapters between this and the epilogue....but then, I'm a sap and can't get enough of "The two crazy kids finally get together" stories....
Author's Response: I think I've figured out a way to do this. I'm a sap too. Thanks so much for your review.

LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED it!! michael throwing a pam-preciation party? sooo great, because it hasn't been done in fanfic yet, and i could definitely see it happening on the show. and jim's post it note? yeah, that's gonna keep a smile on my face for at least 2 days.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad I put a smile on your face. Your review has certainly done that for me!
