Great job - you made me feel badly for someone I really don't like - the sign of an awesome author, for sure!
Author's Response: Thank you! That's so awesome that it made you feel that way - Ryan just got harder and harder to like near the end. You're so great for reviewing :D.

Aw, I love this. I have such a soft spot for Pam and Ryan, and you've really characterized them well, here. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really glad you think so - the Ryan/Pam dynamic is never explored, and it's pretty hard to write. But I love it when authors try it out (I've been following Reset because I think you do a great job with it). Thanks so much for the review. It means a lot.

I am a sucker for Pam and Ryan. And even though Ryan can be a jerk sometimes, I think you captured his vulnerability and sadness great. I think maybe in a galaxy far far away Ryan and Pam would have been a good couple.
Author's Response: That's a great way of putting it...I always felt like Ryan-the-Temp would have been up for a laugh with Pam if he didn't have to deal with both Kelly and Michael. She might have softened him up a little. Thanks so much for the review!

Pam/Ryan stories are usually a nice change of pace. I don't think there are too many of them because it's difficult to do it in character. You manage it perfectly though. :)
Author's Response: Thank you! After trying my hand at one, I can attest to the fact that it is really hard to keep Ryan in character, but I'm always on the lookout for a good Pam/Ryan. You're awesome for reviewing.

yay pryan! I'm also a big fan of Pam/Ryan, in an undercover way, though it seems to run more smoothly before he goes to corporate. That said, I really like the way you approached it by them looking backward to a connection instead of Pam being attracted to jerk-o big boss Ryan :P great work
Author's Response: Thank you! And I agree, there isn't much to salvage from Corporate Ryan. He's too easy to mock for Pam to be attracted to him. But before... Thanks so much for the review! I really appreciate it.

“I mean…I would have done a few pranks with you, you know? Before he came back. I would have if you’d asked me.”
Wow, that killed me. What-if, what-if. Great job!
Author's Response: Ooh, thank you! I pretty much wrote the story around that line, because I always thought Ryan might have been up for pranking if Kelly hadn't kept him so tied up. Thanks so much for the review!

Aww! That was a sweet little peek into how Pam treats people. And a feasible interchange between Pam & Ryan, one that is actually in character for them both.
Author's Response: I'm so glad you think that - writing Ryan was a challenge, and I still feel like the piece could use a little tweaking. Thanks for the review, though! It gives me the warm fuzzies to have a faithful reader.

Every time somone writes Pam/Ryan a fairy gets its wings... or something. Hah. In other words, you should write more of it!
Author's Response: Hahah, there seriously needs to be a Pam/Ryan collection or something, because while I would never want that to actually happen, I still love reading about it. I'd like to write more of it, but keeping them in character is hard! Thanks so much for the review :D.

I like the Pam/Ryan scenarios, too. Becuase it seems so improbable, but yet it could be a good thing. Please keep reading ... not enough of this stuff is out there!
Author's Response: Mm, aren't they interesting? I can never find as much Pam/Ryan stuff as I'd like. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!

Wow. Loved. It. Just like NanReg, I don't like Ryan, but I totally felt for him. Excellent. Just excellent. Some of the best dialog I've read in a while.
Author's Response: Thank you! That means a lot to me. I really appreciate the review :D.

OK, so I think Ryan is basically a douchebag, but you actually made me feel a bit sorry for him. Very believeable scenario, Kestrel. Great dialog--uncomfortable and honest. Nice job.
Author's Response: Haha, yeah he really is...but I'm glad you were able to feel at least a little bad for him. Thanks so much for the review - I love that I can count on your opinion.
