This chapter read just like an episode on the show. You have everyone's voices down so perfectly! As I read it I could actually hear the character's voices in my head. I also enjoyed the talking heads, especially the last one - I love how Pam got Jim to go to the Eiffel Tower! (and as one with a major fear of heights and flying, I certainly can understand Jim's hesitation.)

Loving your story. I could never capture each character the way you do. Halarious, realistic, very well done.You should start writing for the show!!
Author's Response: thanks, MISS! Oh, how i wish i could write for the show. talk about a dream job! :) thank you for reading!

I'm glad you've chosen to go the route of letting Karen be relatable and likeable, doing the right thing and not getting too hurt in the process. And the idea of Dwight wearing Kelly's clothes! Oh, boy. Ha!
Author's Response: just wait. dwight's fashion choices get even worse in the next chapter... and i agree, it's a nice change, writing karen as likable.

Ha! That first hotel looks like the one where they lived on My Name is Earl. And I can't get the vision of Dwight in a skin-tight glittery tee out of my mind. This story is so fun, I'm really psyched that you're updating it!
Author's Response: i've never watched "earl," but i definitely want to now. yep, i could really picture rainn wearing that myspace tee. i knew i had to fit it into the story somewhere!

Your Michael is so perfect! Sounds just like he does on the show. And the thought of Dwight wearing the "You look hotter on my space" sparkly t-shirt was so funny!
Author's Response: Yeah, I knew Dwight would HAVE to wear some of Kelly's tightest clothes. wait until you see what he wears to the casino after hours...

Great idea for a story! I like that you had Jim and Karen break up amicably and they are friends with no hard feelings (TWSS!)
Author's Response: thanks! i got tired of reading stories with karen as this bitchy minx. it's all too easy to classify her that way, so i thought it would be interesting to take a twist on things. it's funny though, when you take away karen's main reason for being on the show as keeping JAM apart... you have to find a new way to make her interesting!

I forgot to mention that Operation Cookie Monster is awesome!!
And the Mirage is pretty damn nice. And they have the volcano fountain out front. When we went there, the white tigers were, uh, trying to make baby white tigers. Niiiiiiice.
Author's Response: I saw something about the volcano fountain on the website. Maybe i'll work that into the story somehow. And hilarious about the white tigers and the Kevin reference. Thanks for reading! :)

I think this was a very funny idea for a story. There's something about Vegas that gets people really excited. (And weird. There's a lot of potential for weird here.) I think you've done a nice job keeping it humorous; some of your Michael lines had me laughing hysterically out loud. I personally enjoy funny stories more than dramatic ones, myself, so I hope you are able to finish this!
thanks for the kind comments! I love the potential for, well, pretty much anything in Vegas. Drunken marriages, room-swapping, gambling away fortunes... ah, have I already given too much away? ;)
i'm leaving for a trip tomorrow, so i plan on gathering more airport/plane/traveling humor while i'm there. be prepped for more in about a week! :)

I'm a discerning Creed fan and you really had me cracking up at his part - so two thumbs up!
I'm looking forward to more - this is looking like a fun read! :) Thanks!
Author's Response: I have to say, I LOVE writing Creed. The scene between him and Jim was probably my favorite to write so far. And I'm trying to think of a way to work him into the rest of the story. He's totally underutilized on the show, IMHO!

what a fun premise! I can't wait to see where you take this! I think it's possible that you do the best Creed voice ever!
Author's Response: thanks, lovefool! i love love LOVE writing Creed. So that's quite a compliment!

Yay for the quick update! I love that Dwight lost all of his weapons. I also love Angela's reactions to the 'manhandling'. Oh my god I think I am turning into a Dwangela fan?! Everyone was so spot on, excellent work.
Also, good luck with your interview and hope you have an awesome trip in Ireland.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'll be going through MTT withdrawal in Ireland, but it should be an awesome time. Thanks for reading :)
