Pam, this was a very clever AU take on the pilot. Initially, I thought Pam was with Roy, so you got me there, you little minx ; ) This is why I stick to reading instead of writing fic. I wouldn't have thought to play it out this way. It worked well. Great job.
Author's Response: Thanks, Nan! I really appreciate it. I'm glad it worked for you! :)

Wow, this is a really interesting premise. The first part of the chapter had me so confused! I hope you'll write more....this has the potential to be a very good story. It's good to see quality stuff on here...(I haven't seen any in a while, but shhh don't tell anyone)
Author's Response: Hey, thanks so much for taking the time to read and review. I appreciate it greatly and very flattered that you find it quality stuff. I am planning to continue so hopefully it'll live up. Thanks again. :)

This was really very good. Monday had me so confused! So, to get my mind right, I bounced over to the LJ community that started this all, and can I just say, what a FANTASTIC idea!
But back to your story, this could really have been the case all along... and if this was the case all along, how would their work interaction, interfere, or cause issues with their real relationship, in this AU place?? This makes me think of SO many more questions.... I really love this!
Have you signed up for any S2 eps? And will they be in this AU place, or do you have something else cooked up for us?
I look forward to more, whatever else it may be! And an update on your ONE WEEK story I love so much too!
Author's Response: Wow! Thank you! I'm so glad you've enjoyed the story. The other episodes I have for the ficathon are The Dundies and Casino NIght both of which I plan on keeping in this universe. I do promise to get back to One Week after I finish up the stories for the ficathon. There's a month time limit so I wanted to get these done. Thanks again for reading and reviewing, I really appreciate anyone that takes the time to do so. :)

Intriguing premise. I'm already thinking ahead to how this scenario would turn into, for example, Casino Night, or the whole thing with Karen. I'd be happy to read more!
Author's Response: Hey, nqllisi, thanks for the review! Interestingly, I have Casino Night and Karen already accounted for in this universe and hopefully I'll be able to get the next portions out soon. Thanks for reading. :)

I found this to be a quite enjoyable read and appreciated the originality of the plot. I was taken aback during the Monday segment when you find out that it was Jim who Pam was talking to all along. Nicely done. Do you plan on continuing with the next episode or how does this ficathon work?
Author's Response: Hey there, glad you liked it! I think I've decided I'll continue on with this universe via the other ficathon episodes that I've chosen. Basically, over on Live Journal (ALoveSoSexy) a bunch of authors have all chosen episodes from seasons one and two and the challenge was to get Pam and Jim together by the end of story/episode. If you're really interested, check out the link I've posted at the beginning of this story. Thank you for the review, I very much appreciate it. :)

Wow! This was such a brilliant way of bringing the two of them together. The fact that they were just pretending in front of the cameras all these years was such a great twist. When I started reading it, I kept wondering if perhaps Pam was dreaming. But as I kept reading and got to the part where they were asked to pretend they weren't in love...the lightbulb finally went on in my head!
You also did a nice job in capturing the voices of Jim and Pam. I especially loved the fact that you used that part from The Pilot in the story because it makes so much sense!
I liked this story a lot. Great job!
Author's Response: Wow! thank you for the kind review. No, I wouldn't pull the rug out from under you like that and have it be a dream. It is very real (in my head anyway). Glad you liked the premise and that the incorporation of the episode worked well. Thanks again! :)

I really enjoyed this story! I don't think I have ever seen a premise quite like this and I'm really into it. I'm just sad this is a one-shot because it would be so interesting to go through the whole series with Pam and Jim being together, behind the scenes.
Author's Response: Hey there, thanks so much for the kind words! :) I'm really glad you like the premise because I was really trying to go for an angle that hadn't been explored too much before. I have a few other one-shots I need to do for the ficathon and was thinking I would use this same universe in them, so I think there will be more, stay tuned! Thanks again. :)
