This is simple and sweet, lighter than air but rooted in reality with lines like this: Surely this kind of joy burrowed its way into something, somewhere deep and ancient.
I'm glad you joined the chorus. This is lovely.

This was somehow more ethereal and momentous by being in first person. That even Jim himself couldn't make out the details just gave it all a magical quality that was heightened. And I loved the bit about grossing out their kid. Hee!

This is lovely! Gah. I love the idea of them hitting up a crappy motel on the side of the road. And I love that Pam loves that Jim bought the ring only a week after they started dating, and I love, love, love everything about the Exit 17 Marriage proposal. And you. And this.

You guys! You're killing me with these PPF's! So much happiness, yessss. Love how much of a time span you covered in so few words. The pain of the past, the unbelievable NOW, and even comtemplation of a future together. And you brought up when he bought the ring. Simply superb, through and through!

Lovefool, how did you manage to make me even happier?
The little details of this story are gorgeous. If I was forced to pick a favorite passage, it would be this: I shivered even now thinking of the moment I'd wondered briefly what the sudden coolness was at my waist, when every other square inch of my body had been on fire. Moving inside her like I'd never been there before.
Love that you had Jim mention when he bought the ring.
Adding this to my favorites.

Hi my JK buddy.
This was fab and I really reallly enjoyed it.
This part "Thank God for stolen thunder. Thank God for the lack of fireworks or hot air balloons. Thank God for no rings stuck in hot sauce packets or Jello. No sentimental trips to Cuginos. Thank God for natural ass kickings - like summer rain storms. Things I could not have orchestrated on my own. For lighting effects and soundtracks that were much bigger than candles or iPods." BRILLIANT. It captures everything and is so true.
Love to see you back with writing :)

this is just the best week ever. I can not get enough of these wonderful fics!
I loved hearing things from Jim's POV and his insight into their future. The love was present and powerful, but the humor that we all love was there too.
