Thank you for the wonderful lunch-time reading, Steph. I was saving this for a time when I could savor it :) I know I must have said it before--probably more than once--but I love your Toby. You write him so well and always make me care about what happens to him. This pairing with Meredith was just great. I could clearly picture the two of them interacting. I felt they balanced each other, and the appearance of Jake was awkward and fun. Thank you for this, my dear :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing. After the finale, I could really see the possibility of Toby and Meredith and I felt like I had to write it. And writing Jake was really fun! Maybe I'll write more. Thanks again!

I was just saying to a friend of mine the about how sorry I felt for Toby in the finale; that after 9 seasons, you'd think they'd give the guy a break. Thanks for providing him with some hope, even from an unlikely source :)
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! Even after everything Toby was my favorite character and I really wanted him to have a nice happy ending as well, but I guess that wouldn't have been as funny. I wanted him to have something nice happen and she definitely was unlikely, but they were talking so much in the finale that I really thought it was leading up to that.

I don't read a lot of non-Jim/Pam fic, but wow, you really made this work. It felt very believable, and I loved this little glimpse into their lives and personalities. Awesome job. :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed it.

How great to see something new from you, Steph! I find it amazing how much Toby on the show just creeps me out and how utterly relatable and sympathetic he is in your fics, despite the fact that you only use what they give us. Talent, my girl. I liked your Meredith, too, and the reason she changed her hair - brilliant. Thanks for posting! You will always have a fan in me. :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I don't know what it is about Toby and why I feel so strongly about the character even when he is acting his strangest. I just love writing him and basically ship him with anyone. I was really hoping something happy would happen to him in the finale and I don't know why but I really thought they were leaning toward something happening between the two of them.

Awwwwww. Toby smiling! Love it. If you'd told me what the pairing was beforehand, I'd have said "no way." But this kinda worked for me - it's a nice send off for both of them.
Author's Response: Thank you! I never really thought much of the pairing until the last part of the finale where there were scenes of them making faces and rolling eyes at each other and then they were talking together for a very long time in the background and I seriously thought that they were really going to go somewhere with that and have them hook up or something. But I'm so glad it sort of worked. Thanks for reviewing!
