You know, I gotta say, I love this. It's really, really good. Your Berger is amazing. I absolutely buy that this is how he ended up. And even though I don't want the show to break up Jim and Pam, I'm fine with it happening in fic when it's done well. And you did it really well. I look forward to the continuation!

Oh, I am so amazingly glad you are writing this. As a longtime SATC fan, I have always loved Berger, and it's fantastic to be able to read things from his point of view. Is it bad that I could really see all this happening? I love JAM as much as the next gal, but this is some pretty great material. Not to mention the writing is excellent, as well. You've captured that dry, cynical, sardonic tone that both characters employ so frequently. Keep going!
Author's Response: Thank you!! I'm glad that you could see this scenario happening and that it at least sounds like the characters - hopefully I'll have part 2 up soon!

DinkinFlicka you are the light at the end of the sappy/happy/angst-free tunnel that is Jim and Pam these days. This is so wonderful. I love how you explained how free Pam is now that the cameras aren't following her, how she is making friends on her own and how awesome college is even at her age.
You've crossed the two shows over seamlessly--fantastically. Also, Jack Berger is one of the best SatC characters.
Author's Response: Heeee, thank you so much! I'm glad you are into the idea, Berger really was one of the best characters on that show!

As a fan of both shows I did a little happy dance when I saw this story was crossover. The pairing of Berger and Pam should make an interesting relationship. In the fanfic world I can always handle Jim and Pam apart if it is written w/ tact and intelligence-- like this story.
I always thought Berger's major flaw was his insecurity w/ Carrie's accomplishments and of course how he handled the criticism of the scrunchy. You have written him as a much stronger character, at least that has made some peace w/ his literary career, so it will be interesting to see how his relationship (if any) w/ Pam grows. And the tie-in to the drunk dialing of Pam was brilliant. Nice job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I always loved Berger, his one downfall really was insecurity about his own career. I tried to keep this true to that part of his character a little, but still allow him to have grown up a little since we last saw him (4 years ago maybe?) - I'm really glad you are liking it!!
