I love this take you have on what Jim and Pam's life could be. I did have a low level sense of unease that something bad was going to happen (like him having a master's degree and working with other smart people would make Pam feel so inadequate that it'd drive a permanent wedge between them). I am very glad it had a happy ending. And that you weren't afraid for them to be childless.

I love this story! It is so nice to Jim and Pam get out of such a drab life...

Great story. I love that they're both happy and successful in ways they never would have been in Scranton.  And I'll admit that as I read this I was afraid with them and Karen in NY that their paths would cross at some point.

Amazing. The life you give them sounds FABULOUS to me. I'm so jealous of Pam (honeymoon in Florence with Jim = best thing ever).

I'm in love with this story.  Even though it's a completly different life, you still remain true to the characters. It's still very Jim and Pam. It's all so believable. I can really see Jim as a professor and pam as a sculptor living in Queens and travelling the world. I always pictured a picket-fence, 2.5 kids and a minivan for these two, but this shoe fits too. And, I kind of like the way it feels. 

And things like this do happen, I ran off to Vietnam in September. I'm living in Saigon, eating a lot of noodles and teaching English for spending money. It's great.

I don't even know what to say about this. The last two paragraphs - Pam's disorientation when she stops to think about her old life - somehow, I felt disoriented.  You did such an excellent job of creating a whole life for them, that I forgot all about Roy and answering phones and all of it.  I ran away in my twenties and lived in a treehouse in the Caribbean for two years.  It can happen and you wrote it so well.  Just amazing and wonderful.
