Loved it loved it loved it! You did a fantastic job handling the ever popular question: "What did Jim say in that card?!" I loved the bits with Dwight, and of course, the Long Island Ice Teas.
This story just shows that Christmas really can last all year long! :)
PS - I hope I've done my part in converting CO2 to O2 with this review...I wouldn't want to upset Al Gore. ;)

Yeah, I'd trade a video iPod for that smile. And a chance to grab the card out of Jim's pocket. Heh.
I'm so glad your tale had a happy ending. I think I would have had to jump out the window if Pam had read the card, Jim had taken it back and they both took that as a reason to stay quiet.
Don't we all wish we could have snatched that card from Jim's pocket? Hee!
You know, it seems like if Pam had read the card on the actual show, they both would have stayed quiet. But this is fanfic world, and I refuse to drive anyone to jump out a window :)

I value a planet that contains Jim, Pam, and fabulous writers like yourself; hence, a review :) Lovely story: Dwight was spot (spout?)-on and I like that you had Pam checking things out before Jim even knew that she'd gotten the teapot back. *Happy New Year!*
Author's Response: Thank you from both the planet and myself :) Excellent spout pun, by the way.

I've taken enough science courses in my life to realize that the connection between fic reviews and photosynthesis is just not important to me.
However, let me say that this story is absolutely fabulous and I'm so glad you posted it. Everyone's dialogue was perfect, with too many choice lines to quote. My favorite part was brave Pam at the bar with Jim, when she confronted him about the card, and then confronted her own feelings. And what a great visual of Pam grabbing for the card and Jim jumping back in shock. Funny.
And Jim's message in the card? Made me tear up. Nice job, you. :)
Hahaha! Okay, next time I won't bring science into my pleas for reviews :)
I'm sort of floored by how much people liked Jim's card. It makes me feel awesome, so thank you :)

Shan - you're killing me. Once with this incredible story and twice with the fact that I still haven't finished what I'm writing for you. :( Help a sister out and please email me with some prompts...any prompts. If my writers block doesn't budge soon I'm going to fold up my keyboard for life.
Ok - that might be a little dramatic - but it's how I feel when I read such spot on dialogue by both Jim, Pam and Dwight and that card....such a lovely, perfectly in character take on the contents.
Oh, xoxoxo, please don't fret! I just finished this for brokenloon last night (I needed an extension too). But if it helps, I'll email you some prompts today. I said I would do it weeks ago and forgot, so it's my bad anyway.
But thanks so much for the nice review :)

Oh, I loved this so much for so many reasons. First, I got that very card from a friend this Christmas! And what you had Jim write in the card was just perfect. Funny and sweet and so Jim. I don't think we'll ever find out about the card on the show, but even if we did, I can't imagine the message could be any better than this. I loved the scene at Poor Richard's - a little liquid courage does wonders for Pam! Dwight and Roy are very real, too, and I loved Pam's conversation with Dwight. What a great after-holiday gift!
Author's Response: Wow! I'm so glad that what I wrote for the card is going over so well! Thanks for the detailed review!

Shan!!!!!!!!! A new story from you is a glorious thing to wake up to. And a jimpot story nonetheless?!
I was so anxious/excited/nervous with Pam as she re-opened the gift. I'm happy to be able to attribute this to your amazing writing (and not my sad obsession... not entirely anyway).
That turtle dove card is genius. Where did that comes from?
Also, I may have enjoyed the ass-grabbing portion a little too much... Mmmm... that is one fine a-- Am I still typing?
You know what acts as a catalyst in the CO2 + reviews = O2 reaction? Fanfic.
I'm just sayin... ;-)
Hahaha! As I was writing this I was like, SixFlightsUp is totally right. I am apparently obsessed with that teapot.
The turtledove card was something that popped up when I googled "funniest christmas cards" and is by no means a product of my imagination. Although I wish I could take credit :)
Anyway, thanks for the feedback! I knew that you would enjoy the ass-grabbing part. Heh. You rock!
