SO sorry it's taken me an age to get round to reviewing. There are a million and one excuses but first of all, hey there! I'm always looking forward to the few days of the month you stop by and show us some love with your delightful story telling :)
Secondly, niceties out of the way, you're mean! *pouts* Just when you make us think everything is happy (or happier at least), things totally shift in the space of one night! How dare you toy with my heart like this, Kate. It's mean I tells ya!
And yet.... strangely addictive and fascinating. Even if I do want to alternately slap them silly, I love the atmosphere you've created here and how one chapter I can really feel the warmth of their feelings and the next, it's like I'm standing with them outside in the snow. Can't wait to see how this wraps up! I can take the torture if I get some more beautiful writing from you my dear.

*Shakes Jim* Don't let him mess this up with her, okay? Damn this is good. I'm so happy you're back lol. Why is he being so distant :( I need answers NOW :p
Thank you for continuing this freaking awesome story

Kate, you can't even imagine how happy I am to have you back! I've been thinking of you a lot lately. Hoping all is well.
This was like water in the desert. You captured that alone-in-the-world feel, that sense of tenderness. It's apparent how much they love each other. As far as the steam, it's never overkill IMHO :D BUT I don't need steam for the sake of steam, you know? Whatever works for you and the story is fine by me.
Stick around, OK? You were sorely missed.
Author's Response: Hey there old friend. =) I hope everything with you is well. I feel so out of touch with some of the gals I used to message almost daily on the boards! I'm glad you're still enjoying this, and I'm so thrilled that you mention the "alone in the world" kind of thing, because that's sooo what I'm trying to do -- and in the following chapters, where we see them around other people, I hope I can turn that inside out well enough (so that when they're around other people, back in the world, it's such an intrusion for them). Thanks for reading and always taking the time, Nancy! =)

Yayyy I am so thrilled to see this updated! And what an update it was! I personally will read WHATEVER you write, steam or no steam, but I have to say I do love steam :) wink wink :)
Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thanks for the input! =)

You have a continuity error, yanana. In Chapter 13 you imply Pam didn't know about Jim's hairy chest because it's the first time she's seen him without a shirt. In Chapter 6, Jim drops the blanket he's been holding and she helps get him back to bed—all while he's shirtless. It's mentioned again in Chapters 8 and 9 that's he's bare-chested.
Author's Response: Actually, what I was trying to get across (and apparently was not successful in) was Pam actually letting herself getting a look at him, instead of before when she was more distracted/concerned because of how they were around each other, and how Jim was pretty sick when she initially came over. Hope you still managed to enjoy the chapter.

yanana where have you been?!
so good to see you back with this beautiful little snippet of a chapter. i can perfectly feel their love in this, the new turn in their relationship and of course Jim is adorable as usual! thank you thank you thank you for this lovely treat! :)
Author's Response: Hey there lady. Thanks for the kind words! =)

Yeah, I was very happy to see this had been updated. This story has a unique feel to me and I just love it. I wouldn't say steam is vital but definitely enjoyable.
Author's Response: I'm so happy to hear that people are still reading this and enjoying it. Thanks for the read and review. =)

Finally! Where have you been??! I've missed you SO much! Come back for good, please!
As far as steam, I have to be honest and say I skip the steamy parts, but if you write it, I'll read it... Just WRITE and POST, okay??
Thank you for this update, I can't wait to read more and more and more! Quicker this time, though!
Author's Response: Hello there, Ang! I think I'll be back more frequently, at least more frequently than I have been lately. Lots of insomnia these days, what else is there to do, eh? =) I'm glad you're still enjoying this one. I'll have an update for you soon.

Oh Kate. I have missed you, thank you for this.. I have had a really crappy day and I saw you updated and squeed really loudly. This chapter was amazing. I love the tension, it's hot!! Your attention to detail is one of my fvaourite things about your stories.
I hate to be a perv, but I love steam. BUT I also like steamless fics that come from you. But, yeah, don't feel bad, we like a bit of smut every now and then often;))
Author's Response: HELLO! I'm glad it was a small bright spot in your crappy day. =)

You suck?! It's been like a week since you updated and I still haven't reviewed! I'm afraid this may be rather brief - I'm supposed to be catching a plane in a matter of hours and I haven't even packed. Oops.
But this was glorious as usual. I love that there's still a little bit of tension there, of course, but the beautiful description of them just standing there, the only sound in the room being them softly kissing. *melts*
Not to mention the image of a concussed Pam telling Jim he's the only way she knows how...how do you come up with this stuff, huh? I'm sure I've said it before but if that nursing lark falls through, you better make a career out of this talent.
And by god, guys better love girls in sweatpants ;)
Don't go MIA too often, m'kay? And I promise I won't either.

Just what I needed when I feel like crap. This was great. I never know what to say in your reviews, because I feel like a gushing fangirl. I have nothing constructive to say at all. It was perfect and magical and GUH!

I was so happy to see an update for this. This story has a different feel to me and I always feel like I am intruding on something so private between these two. I just really love how you are writing this. Thanks for the update.
Date: September 21, 2010 01:07 pm Title: Chapter 12
I can't even tell you how thrilled I am that you've updated this! I actually want to start re reading all the chapters so I can get back into the flow, but reading this alone is just fabulous. The slow pace that I remember from earlier chapters is still here... and is it the same day or the next day? I can't remember. Anyways, I love the way you wrote this, so hopeful but the tone is the same all the way through, no burst of giddiness or silliness. I love the end, as he puts his head on her shoulder and tells her he missed her. I can't wait for more, and hopefully it'll be way before Christmas time! Don't stay away so long this time!

Welcome back, old friend! How rude of me...come sit down! Would you like something to drink? Jim missed Pam and I've missed you, too :)
Hmmm...feels like we're getting somewhere here, not that I'm not enjoying the leisurely pace, mind you. The only noises are the howl against the window pane and the soft noise of their kissing. That's so yummy. Wherever they are--at work or in a hospital or alone at home--these two are in their own little world. Pam's telling Jim how she feels, in her own unpolished way, is just right. How could a man not turn into a puddle of goo? "Stay just like that," he says quietly, indulgently. *sigh* I love that the walls are coming down. Someone's not going to be sleeping on the couch in wet sweatpants, right? What's next, huh? Tell me! 5-4-3-2-1, do it! Now. ;)

I really hope to see an update before Christmas, too. Because the wait on this? Killing me. This was worth the wait, though. I just don't even know where to begin. Normally, I read the chapters a few times, cause I love them so, but I have an ungodly amount of homework to catch up on, so I need to save the next couple of reads (and a better review) for later. I do love this.
"Stay just like that," is just... delicious. I can feel the words.
