Oh, these were so awesome, I loved them! I especially loved the Andy ones, and the one between Kevin and Angela totally owns my soul, that was so perfect, especially Kevin's smirk.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Owns your soul, huh? Be careful, it might come to collect one of these days ;)

I have even more favorites with this one - Michael, and Jim, and Andy, and Kevin. :) But Andy with his flask... awesome.
Author's Response: Thank you! I figured Andy and Meredith could bond over something... why not booze? ;)

Cool! Chapter two already up! It's like second drink! :)
Once again, you explore some pretty cool territory, and I think you've done a great job here. I love any look at Dwight and Angela's relationship, and I always wondered what the fall out of Kelly's sudden kiss was--beyond the smashing of ornaments in the parking lot. :)
Jim's conversation with Jan was quietly tragic, although I love the idea that that is where he got "just once" from. I'm a big fan of important moments like that coming from unusual sources.
I think my favorite, though, was Ryan's. I don't know if I have the words to adequately describe how much I laughed at his pain. I believe that the aftermath of "I guess he can't get ANY girl he wants" ended exactly like that. :)
Author's Response: Heh, second drink :p Ryan is... he's always been the cynical background noise that you laugh at because you have to have that guy somewhere, but I think he's just so misguided at this point that he has no idea which way is up. I don't really think he has any idea what being happy is. He needs a Pam S3 for himself ;) Thanks for reviewing!

Heh... okay, this wasn't anything close to what I was expecting. Not that that's a bad thing at all. Unexpected stories are some of my favorites.
I find your take on many of these scenarios quite fascinating. I chuckled with pure schadenfreude over Jan's coupon clipping and hot-pocket munching; I loved Kelly's manic mood swings; and I felt my eyes go wide with surprise upon reading about Phyllis' troubled past. Very brave moves all, bebitched, and I applaud the courage to explore those.
Pam's tears always make me a little verklempt myself, as that was the moment that started me writing fic in the first place. I really like your painful take on that moment.
I think the only one that had me confused was the very first one with Karen and Andy. It says pre-merger, but Karen talks about having already moved to the middle of nowhere, which makes it sound like it's post-merger. I guess I'm just a little confused by that one.
Overall, though, a great and intriguing story!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I guess what I meant was post-her moving but pre-The Merger, as in the episode. Sorry for the confusion!
