Okay, I don't normally like to guess at why other people rate things the way they do, but why did this chapter only have 4 stars when I came to read it? This is one of the hottest little steam fests I've been to in awhile! I love how Jim slides his hand under hers, feeling her wrist and then all that hot, repressed emotion. Guh. It's definitely a 10 for me.

Still working through all your goodies, Stablergirl, and I especially liked ths:
And he and Pam had a habit of calling all of their overtures jokes…and turning all of their feelings into pranks…and making everything a laughing matter because laughing was just easier than dealing. Laughing was easier than crying. That is Pam and Jim to a tee (or is it tea?). Fantastic. Okay, onto the next chapter.

The Barry Manilow conversation just flows so seamlessly. It seems so natural. Only a very skilled author could pull off such a conversation with such an odd topic successfully, and you did, and more. Thanks for writing this.
Author's Response: Thank you!!!! Glad you enjoyed it!!!!

“Here,” he murmured, “I hope you get a Q.”
As a scrabble lover, and scrabulous addict, I truly appreciated this little line. I'm really liking this story. Great job!
Author's Response: lol thank you ;-) I always find myself thinking those kinds of things when I play scrabble.

Is this a nod to California Stars? Because if it is, and you've made a subtle, effective allusion to a great song that's kind of canonish and perfect- I heart you. Forever and ever.
What's that thing Michael says, when Lazy Scranton comes on (!), about how he forgot there was an A+++? Congratulations. This story feels more right the more I think about it. There's humor! Funny humor! And they actually thought about how it might be bad to just jump into the sack. That's ruined a lot of stories.
Sorry for a ramble. Gold medal!
Author's Response: Yay gold medal!!!!!! And an A+++!!!!! I heart you for this review! And interestingly no I don't know California Stars, so I guess I accidentally alluded to something amazing and now I have to go look it up. ;-) Thank you so much for the review! It made my day!!

Definitely not disappointed that they're not naked. I really liked that you brought it back around to the office. And with such style! I can totally envision the entire scene in the conference room. All their reactions and interactions were completely in character. And the subtle awareness of the cameras was just a fantastic nod to the show itself. Loved it. They are themselves, together.
Author's Response: aw thank you so much!!! I'm so glad you liked it and that you weren't disappointed ;-) I was a little nervous posting this one.

Awww, very cute- the scrabble tile invitation, and Jim and Pam not being able to keep their eyes off each other. I love that Pam was so excited about the way Jim invited her to dinner that she almost squeed about it to the camera.
And I loved the whole Black History Month celebration in April, and Michael being so Michael. I LOVED Jim's question about whether he could be black on a leap year. Heee! The stress you put on "Can" made it sound soooo much like Jim, I could hear him in my head. And wow, Michael's answer to that question- ha!!
Author's Response: yay! Thank you for this awesome review! Yeah I know it's so cute how Pam gets so excited. AND you have Brokenloon to thank for Michael's response to Jim's leap year question. He totally came up with that ;-)

I hope these are the kind of background moments we will see in S4. You've really captured the energy between the two of them. Nicely done!
Author's Response: i know me too. Thank you so much!

This is, I think, better than naked Jim and Pam... So them just being in the office, having fun, being flirty and laughing at Michael, who is ridiculously hilarious here.
Very well done.
Author's Response: ugh good. I was soooo worried I might get tomatoes in the face for this. But I'm glad I'm not and you liked it and thought it was funny.
Date: August 30, 2007 10:38 pm Title: Be black in April, Phyllis, ok?
So much perfection I can't stand it! HILARIOUS! I loved the idea of Pam skipping along...they seemed so near giddy with happiness. Ugh...just warmed my heart. And just so typical of what Michael would do....great jokes!
Author's Response: oh good, thank you! I'm glad you liked it and you thought it was funny!!! I was worried it might not read well, so thank you thank you!

If it's over, it's an awesome end. If there's more, I can't wait. I soooo love this fic and if I could make my husband play Scrabble with me after reading this, I totally would.
Author's Response: not over yet, I don't think. One more chapter of cuteness ;-) lol if i had a husband I'd make him play scrabble too, even though I'm terrible at it.

That was a totally sweet day after complete with ensemble amusement. Great job.
Author's Response: thank you so much for your reviews!!!!!!! You made my night. And I'm so glad you liked this chapter.
Date: August 30, 2007 08:47 pm Title: No apologies.
Aw, amazing chapter. I love the way it transitioned from the game (with Jim making the word want) to the two of them actually going for what they want - each other. Plus, the stars on the ceiling is really cute.
Author's Response: ugh yes. jim spelling the word want, so hot of him.
Date: August 30, 2007 08:30 pm Title: Since you're here, and since the power's out...
Lovely. I liked how Pam was so calm and confident in this chapter and just telling Jim that things work themselves out. Also I laughed when she called him out on the Scrabble ploy. That was great.
Author's Response: glad you laughed at that one ;-)
Date: August 30, 2007 08:25 pm Title: An opportune moment
I absolutely love this so far. Jim's insecurities and unspoken words causing missed moments that just sort of stretch out until he's not sure what to do...that's so right on. Also great cliffhanger with the power going out.
thank you!!! lol yeah I love that ending with the power. am I allowed to say that about my own chapter? ;-)
Date: August 30, 2007 07:15 pm Title: Be black in April, Phyllis, ok?
OK, happy that it's not over (right?) and OMG, how does Pam get through the day without POUNCING on Jim? S4 is looking to be mighty interesting....
Author's Response: nope not over! and yeah, not sure, cause I'd be all over that shit if I was her ;-)

Poor Emilio Estevez. Being mentioned in this story is the highlight of the last ten years of his career. Where to even begin with how good this is? The banter becoming more and more inane and absurd as things build is just so brilliant. And those last few parapgraphs...my goodness. Tremendous stuff.
Author's Response: haha thanks!! Thank you so much for betaing and coming back from vacation. lol. You rock.

UNBELIEVABLY sexy. I'm not sure how you did this...just the underlying tension...just there bubbling underneath the fun banter about pepperoni no less and "defacement" ROFL. This is so so so good.
Author's Response: lol thanks ;-)
