My first review joining this page :)
Poor Toby! He still suffered even when he was away.
Author's Response: Your first review? Thanks. I'm honored! And yes, poor Toby. It's all about the suffering where he's concerned.

Very nice story. You capture everyone's voice so well. Kelly trips me out! She would call back and talk herself to the end of multiple voicemails... then blame the phone! lol
I cannot stand Erin, but I like her in this short call. This: "You know who isn’t useful though? Holly. You’ve met her, right? She’s so boring and not pretty at all." and this: "And the worst part is Holly is just making Michael miserable and if you come back he won’t be miserable." Oh, poor dumb Erin. Why are you so spot on, yet funny here, but not when you're forced upon me by TPTB
Author's Response: Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.

Very enjoyable, including a good hard laugh at Michael's message (pretty much exactly what he would say). You have such a distinctive tone in your writing; I would know this was you even without that the byline. And no one captures Toby, Kelly and Ryan any better than you.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! A distinctive tone? I love it. And thank you for your comment about writing those characters, I find them so intriguing that I just want to keep writing them.

This is really cool, poor Toby. I wish he were on the show more often. I get why he's not, so Holly could come back, but even when she isn't there he's still missing far too often. I liked this so much, and I'm going to get to reading other stories by you.
Author's Response: Thanks! I wish that too. I wish there was a way they could have dealt with the Michael/Holly arc without completely getting rid of him for awhile but I don't know. And I have read that Paul really hates acting so maybe that's part of it. Oh how nice about reading my other stories. Almost all are Toby-based and many ship him with Kelly (weird I know). But I really hope you enjoy!

LOL! Such a clever idea, Steph. As always, your characterizations--even in voice mail messages--are perfect. Thanks for reminding me that Toby is an employee of Dunder Mifflin Sabre ;)
Author's Response: Thank you! And yeah, no one else seems to remember that he still exists. But I remember!

LMAO. I admit I'm not one to usually read anything other than Jim and Pam, but your charatarisation of everyone you write is always so spot on. Meredith's line about cutting Holly made me laugh, and Kelly... I was reading it and I could hear her saying it,which doesn't happen often :)Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you decided to take a chance and read it. I hope they bring back Meredith's intense hatred of Holly. That cracked me up. And thanks about Kelly; I love writing her.

I may have given a little whoop out loud when I saw you'd posted a new story, and this did not disappoint.
I love Meredith's and Kelly's the best, but you've nailed every voice you've included. Such fun, and smart, Toby, to change his cell phone. I have a feeling there's not really any paperwork left though. *grin*
Author's Response: Thanks! That's so sweet. Yep, Toby's "paperwork" may not completely be the truth.

Haha, Steph!! This line of Erin's made me laugh: "Her hair makes me sad." As always, your characterization is so good, especially Kelly's insane ramblings getting repeatedly cut off... nice.
Always good to see something new from you, my dear. Thanks for posting here even though your stories don't get the love they deserve. :)
Author's Response: Thank you! Erin and Kelly are fun to write. And thanks for what you said - it is hard sometimes posting knowing most people don't read what I write, but I just love writing.
