"Too perfect"? I would say just perfect enough. Isn't it funny that it's too good to be true for a man to take his shoes off, load the dishwasher, and turn off the tv? Really, men, take note: Emotional labor is sexy af.
This fic is absolutely lovely :)

This was a great story about Jim's & Pam's future. I love Perfect Jim so this was right up my alley :o)
The way you write the characters and paint this scenario makes me feel like looking at a Thomas Kincade painting. It's a very warm feeling after reading it so thank you so much for that!

"He gasps his surprise in her ear, and he can just barely make out her smile in the dark. She turns in his arms and murmurs against his lips, “I’ve been waiting for you.”
Such a sweetly erotic ending. Wow.

Jim is a little too perfect
Hmmm... I'll be brave and beg to differ! I thought it felt real; after being busy all day and coming home through the rain, entering a quiet house (and home is supposed to be a refuge from the world) with an energetic kid fast asleep would make most people relax. Plus that feeling of being 'sheltered from the storm' with someone waiting upstairs for you to come home.
And hey, he's not perfect- he didn't put the bike away! :)
I love rainy nights and thought you set the mood beautifully.

Jim isn't totally perfect in this; he works too late. ;o)
Hooray for Jam!Babies!
Author's Response: Ah yes, we've discovered a chink in the armor, lol. Well besides the working late thing, he's pretty damn close to perfect, but that's okay. Thanks for reading and reviewing, lisahoo.

Wonderful atmospheric details about Jim coming home late at night, in the storm. So vivid - I especially love the chalk disintegrating in the water. And how sweet is it that he stops to load the dw for her? That's real life romance.
This is just so warm and cozy and natural and full of heart. And that last bit is also crazy sexy in the most understated, deliciously believable way. Yum. Thanks, kells - what a treat.
Oh thank you so much, Colette. I love your reviews. The chalk on the sidewalk is pretty much a given in front of our house during a rainstorm, lol, and I thought maybe Jim and Pam's house might be the same way when they had kids one day. (what? yes, I know these are fictional people, ;) ).
I'm also glad that last part worked okay - I was worried that it would seem out of place with the rest of the fic, but then I also thought that it would illustrate the sensuality they are able to maintain even years from now when they are married with kids.
I'm so glad you enjoyed this, thank you for reading!

LOVELY! and interesting because I've always wanted to write something like this...Jim coming home in the middle of a storm, maybe late from a work meeting or convention...thank you for finally getting it on paper -- er, computer screen. Loved it! Perfect Jim or not!
Author's Response: Aw...thanks so much for the kind words, LoveFool. I love the idea of him coming home late at night and just wrapping himself around her. Fanfic is a wonderful thing, yes? lol. Thanks again for reading and reviewing!

Glad you let it out! The Halperts happily married with a little Halpert. And I'm picturing the little one with a mop of unruly brown hair. Thanks for writing it.
Author's Response: Thank YOU for reading and reviewing, Cheeb. Yes, I too picture a toddler with curly hair....*sigh**
