You did a great job of that! I loved how you did it in screenplay format--I could totally see it playing in my mind. The tension when they didn't know if it was Jim...good stuff!
Author's Response: Thanks, Strider, I'm glad you liked the format. And thanks for suggesting the scenario, it was a nice nudge to try something different. I appreciate the review.

What a perfect story for the challenge! I must admit that the color went out of my face too when I read that it was a smashed silver Saab like Jim's. Yikes. And yay to Meredith for googling AA.
Author's Response: Aw shucks, thanks, kaystar. But hey, since somebody had to say "I'm not dead" it couldn't be true about Jim, now could it? Besides, that's something I don't think I could write. rnrnI've always wanted them to do an episode where they address Meredith's alcoholism semiseriously in some way. Like AIDS, there's really not a funny DUI joke out there. rnrnThanks again for reading and reviewing!

Hee. Oh, poor Pam! But Clueless Michael is awesome.
Author's Response: Yeah, I kind of hated to do that to poor Pam because I'm kicking her butt in another story I'm writing too, but artists are supposed to suffer, aren't they?rn*grin* I'd never "written" Michael really, but he's fun because frankly, he could say anything at any given moment in time. rnThanks for taking the time to review!

Jazzfan shoots and SCORES! I was intrigued when I read that challenge, wondering how writers would tackle it. This was perfect. Since I'm a sick pup, this was my favorite line: [DWIGHT runs into Michael’s office and gets his keys and a previously prepared baby bag] Here Michael, I hope there isn’t large tear in the perineum. *snort*
Author's Response: I think that makes us both sick pups. I dunno, it just seemed like something Dwight would say with his history of animal husbandry and newfound human anatomy knowledge. *giggles* Thanks.
