More_awake, this was absolutely delightful, wonderful, blissful--all those "ful" words :) I could absolutely envision Pam in this situation--the lack of confidence, the melancholy. This is just heartbreaking and perfect: "...so she opts not to put on her glasses after she takes her contacts out and undresses. She would much prefer five blurry steps back to the tub than further criticizing the rest of herself under the harsh bathroom lights." And, of course, Jim would comfort her in just this way--sincere, heartfelt, loving. All the lovely sincerity was well balanced with that touch of humor--the sugar on top :) Well done...and thank you!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks :) I had been working on this for a while, so I'm really glad you liked the way it turned out.

Oh I wish I had the courage to talk about my extra 20 pounds with my husband. But do I really want him to well-meaninglly suggest an exercise regimen? I want a Jim Halpert too! And a spa tub.:)
Author's Response: I also want a Jim Halpert and a spa tub... or a Jim Halpert IN a spa tub. Ha. Thank you for reading! :)

LMFAO omg the last part still has me cracking up. I can so see Pam saying that to get a rise out of Jim lol.
I loved this though, so thank you. It's so perfectly in character and exactly what I imagine Pam going through, especially with evil Angela wandering the office :)
I request... or you know, demand more ;)
Author's Response: Thanks for the comment! :) Haha-- I felt like it was bordering on cheesy, so I decided to add that little bit in there and just hope that everyone else would think it was in-character.. so I'm glad you thought so

I love this for so many reasons. I love Jim, I love reassuring Jim, and I can totally feel what Pam's going through (though I haven't actually had a kid... I've had similar thoughts to hers that you've written here.) Bathtub sexy time for the win, too! And the end was really funny, I love when she teases him.
I hope you have more things coming our way! Thank you for getting us all together to get the flow going over here again. :)
Author's Response: Haha thank you for the help with writing the bathtub sexytime! I'm not good at writing the descriptions for those kinds of scenes. Thanks for the comment and all of your help :D

Hooray! Love it so much! I am so happy tht you and your partners have started this project - it's awesome. :)
I can completely and totally relate to every single thing Pam is feeling in this one; sometimes it's so hard to be a woman! I love Jim for loving Pam and knowing just right things to say.
And - bathtub lovin' - woohoo! ;)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading :) I'm glad you liked it. As for the bathtub thing... that was where the whole story started from, and I just had to figure out a way to get them there. hehe
