Nice, warm, soft, cuddly Jim & Pam -- just the right tone. In the episode, Jim seemed lost when Pam told him he didn't need to stay -- I think you filled in that blank nicely. Nice read....
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I know, I always feel bad for him when she tells him he can go home, and I always imagined that she'd brought up his guitar stuff at some point afterward. I also think they had a lot of moments like this, they're so close to one another that I really think they had these little times where they were just quiet and exploring things about one another early on. Thank you so much, and I'm so sorry it took so long to reply!

Danielle, I love that you're feeling so inspired. Who cares when this idea came to you!? ;) Right now it's awesome--intimate and sexy.
Author's Response: Thank you so much Nancy! I'm so sorry it took so long to reply to reviews for this story. I can't tell you enough how grateful I am for you and your support. It means so much to me. I'm really happy you liked this one! It just came to me more or less out of no where but once it happened it had to be written. Glad you liked it! :)

That was adorable. Everyone loves a guy who can play guitar!
Author's Response: Sigh, I know, I wish I could meet a guy who plays the guitar! At this point I'd like to meet a guy who isn't a d-bag, but that's a different story lol Thanks so much for letting me know what you thought! Happy you liked it! :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much KH, I'm really happy that you enjoyed this. I do think that they had a lot of moments like this when they were dating, just wanting to be with one another on every level. Thanks so much for letting me know what you thought, it really means so much! :)

Sigh ... that was so sweet. There was nothing overtly romantic in this, but you could just feel the intimacy between them. Jim playing just struck me as so vulnerable because he was revealing another part of himself to Pam. I also like how you mention that he probably started and stopped playing the guitar because of Pam. Wonderful job!
Author's Response: I'm so sorry it took so long to reply to reviews, I just realized I didn't get to it until today! Thank you so much, I'm so happy that you liked it. I try not to be too overly romantic and try my best to keep it natural and real, I'm happy you thought I accomplished that with this story. :) Thank you so much!

It may have been "pointless" to you my dear, but I cannot express just how much you have melted me, I'm literally now in a huge pile of goo on the floor lol. I always had this image of him being able to play, and not being bad at all, but him having no confidence in himself as he plays, and you totally got that right for me. The way she asked him to teach her was so beautiful too. God, girl. You're amazinnnnnnnnnng :)
Author's Response: I'm so sorry I haven't replied to reviews for this, I just noticed! Thank you so much, I'm so thankful to have you in my corner cheering me on every step of the way. I value it so much, I can't even begin to tell you how much you're appreciated by me. I'm one of the people who love everything Jim does, so him playing guitar just stayed in my head and had to be written. I'm so happy you liked it, thank you so much for being so sweet! :) :)

nope, not pointless. Not even remotely pointless. I love the way you told this story. The way you helped us to understand what Pam was thinking. I LOVE her following up on the subtle clues he gave her about himself when he revealed his avatar. I've always thought that Jim wasn't the only selfless one in their relationship and I could see her supporting his desire to go back to shool for journalism the same way he supported her going to Pratt.
I just love how you have Pam insist that he share his love of the guitar with her. I'm sure she understood that with him having that picture of it slung on his back coupled wth the memory I BET she has of it sitting in hisroom when she visited during his party, I think those things were enough to let her know that this is important to him. I just love that because she can tell it's important to him she so desperately wants not just for him to play for her but forhim to share the expreience with her by helping her play. You created a fantastic visual in that scene, well, the visual was really great throughout. Now I just have this picture in my head of him playing for his darling Cece and beng anxious to play for his sweet baby boy.
You always do such an awesome job of letting us not only get these fantastic glimpses and back stories of Pam and Jim's but you also do just this phenomenal job of heling us to see into their mindset. How they are thinking and just why they are thinking that way. This was such a special quiet little story and I just really enjoyed it.
You are truly gifted Danielle. I feel so blessed that I get the priveledge of reading thewonderful way your mind works. You do such an awesome job of making Pam and Jim into even more interesting, loving, wonderful people. Thank you so much for sharing that with me and with us.
Author's Response: I'm so sorry, I just noticed I didn't reply to reviews for this story! I always wondered if they talked about his guitar and his writing stuff, so I thought this was fun to explore. I love an understanding sweet Pam, and I love the image of their quiet night together while they're dating and still learning about one another. I'd also like to do one where he's playing for Cece and his son, most definitely. There are so many different options and areas of this couple to explore. I can't thank you enough for the lovely compliments you've left. They truly mean so much to me, and I'm happy that what I wrote here was enjoyable to you.
