Okay, tag in the snow. I love playing Tag. I love the snow. I don't see anything wrong and I am totally up for that game!
Oh and Drunk!Pam is one of my favorite Pams!
I agree, this isn't quote fluff, isn't angst. Its that awkward inbetween. (and awkward isn't meaning the writing).
This was dead on what I could picture happening in a half drunken game of snow tag.
I was like, holding my breath waiting to see if he would kiss her.
And then this:
Feigning nonchalance, though fully appreciating the subtext of his words he said “You’re it, you know”
Wow. Just. Wow. No words.
Author's Response: Okay, so I clapped my hands in glee when I signed on and saw I had broken into double digits for reviews on this story (first time ever!), and then to see all your wonderfully kind comments here was just awesome. Thank you for taking the time to write such flattering comments! rnI think someone in fandom needs to come up with a term for not quite angst and not quite fluff...And for the record, I wanted to have him kiss her SO BAD, but I knew it wouldn't work quite as well. Anyway, enough blabbing...Thank you so much for reading and reviewing, I really appreciate it!

This was such a perfect capture of pre-S1 Jam, how they keep themselves guarded from each other but once and a while there's a moment when it all slips through. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks! I love that chemistry and tension in Seasons 1 and 2. Though it sometimes feels weird to write "back then" fic, I really enjoyed this one. rnrnThanks for your review!

Oh wow. Beautiful! That ending just killed me. I loved it!
Author's Response: Thanks for the kind review! Part of me hated writing the ending like that, but it's just what felt right. I guess they can't always get together in the end. *sigh* I'm really glad you liked it!

I really really really love this. Maybe because it sort of reminds me of HS when I was in a similar situation. But I love this. Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks for your review! I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

I can completely see Michael calling game of tag in the middle of the Christmas party. Well done!
Author's Response: I'm glad you found it realistic, I was definitely worried about the believability of this storyline, but I needed a reason for Jim and Pam to run around in the snow. Thanks for reading and reviewing!!

:(Poor Jim! But cute fic. I didn't realize it was set in the past so I assumed it would end with Jim and Pam finding some excuse to go make out in the bushes, but this way was awesome, too :) Pining Jim makes my heart ache.
Author's Response: Hahaha! Making out in the bushes would indeed be perfect...maybe next time. ;) Thanks so much for your review!

Oh, I love the weight of that statement. Pining!Jim is so, so beautiful.
Author's Response: Thanks! That little gem of subtext just sorta came to me in the midst of writing this as a perfect way to end. I adore pining!Jim too!rnrnThanks for reading and taking the time to review!
