I really like this. I like the idea that Jim just didn't go, instead of playing with Karen's head. And I like the fact that Karen and Pam have a real opportunity to be friends, which could never happen the way it really played out. Of course, it makes me sad that we'd miss out on the Jim/Pam goodness, but even that would/could probably work out eventually. I mean, he did get a post-it, right? Really nice.

This was lovely, SHWOP! You've got such a great handle on Karen's character, and it's always fun to see the new and innovative ways you come up with in dealing with her character's perpsective. I love the twist you took in this; you really showed how Pam and Karen could easily have become friends (you know, if they both didn't want some Halpert lovin'). I know we talked about this story a lot, but I think it's a wonderful little adventure for you to take us on. Well done, well done, and keep up the great work!!!! --GMMBBG

Um, CONTINUE, PLEASE! If you do, would you do it from Karen's POV or Pam's? It would be nice to get a little bit of both. I always thought Jim's return to Scranton was pretty unrealistic. So, I'd love to see your take on the situation if it was more like real life!
Author's Response: You know, I would probably stick with Karen's, just because I think it's one that doesn't get represented too often. But we shall see :) In any case, I really appreciate you reading! Thanks!

Swiffer! I remember an early incarnation of this from days of long ago, and I always thought it had some great potential. And I love what you've done with it! Such a realistic glimpse into what Karen must have been thinking during those last days at Stamford. And it's all the little nuances that you throw in--like the as yet unnamed cat and "he's too tall, she's too short, and he's probably not Catholic"--that make this such a tasty treat.
Kudos and huzzah for you one this one, m'dear! I'm proud of you for tackling the writer's block head-on, and I think you could very easily return to this another time and explore it a little more.
Author's Response: Gracias senor! Couldn't have done it without a little nudge from you :) You've always been such a help in talking me off the ledge and this time is no different. Thanks for everything friend!

You definitely need to continue this. Not that I care about Karen, but Jim needs to find his way back to Pam, or Pam to Jim. I'll take either one.
Author's Response: We shall see what the future holds :) Thanks for reading!

You did very well on Karen's POV. And I can't wait to see how Jim responds to Pam's note.
I think this can most definitely be continued.
Author's Response: I'm definitely thinking about it! Thanks for reading!

It's like Sophie's Choice. This is great (of course) and I really, really want to know what the heck Jim is going to do with himself. But, but, there's that other fic that I'm dying to read, too! Can you do both? I vote for both.
Author's Response: With finals coming up, I'm not sure I'll be able to manage...then again I'll be looking for maximum procrastination so we'll see! Thanks for reading!

Great beginning! And since you asked, here's what I think you should do for future chapters - Jim returns Pam's call, she swears her eternal love, he comes back to Scranton, they get married and Karen is her maid of honor who falls in love with Mark, his best man. And they all live happily ever after.
Whadda think? <smile>
Author's Response: Sounds perfect...if I weren't such a fan of bringing on the angst ;) Thanks for reading!
