I love all of your stories but Sin Aesthetics and this one most of all. I love the conversations between Jim and Pam when she wakes up. Having her waving bye from Bearsley to Jim breaks my heart. So Sweet!

Of course, I also look "newly awakened to her future and loving it" Pam. So.

She might be embarrassed by it, but I kinda love ditzy, drugged-up Pam.

I feel bad for the fact that I read these all at once and don't typically review every chapter...but I love this chapter in particular because of the Jim/Helene interaction.

I love Bearsly. There should be more quietly amusing adorable things like that in the real series too.

I've read this story several times now. I always keep coming back to this chapter. I just love how Jim and Pam re-connect here. It's simple, loving, and beautiful. Always brings a smile to the face to envision this scene.

Back on my Rach3l binge reading. How I didn’t read this story earlier I don’t know, because it is just *so* ridiculously good. Like, perfect. Jim in the hospital, the way he took care of everything, how you wrote his emotions and his thoughts and then the way they came together at the end, just perfect. And I swear to god my heart swelled and I got a little teary eyed at the Jim wept/Jim slept call back. I mean. Just knock me out, why don’t you? I love everything you’ve written and this is definitely no exception.

I loved this story. I just finished reading it the second time through. I loved your exploration of Jim through the list. KMS probably just seems like such a realistic thing for Jim to feel and write in that position. I loved the mugshot. I loved Pam's reaction to seeing Jim. It all feels very in character. I loved it.

The evening I spent reading this fanfic was a delightful way to spend time. What a WONDERFUL story! Jim and Pam's first few interactions in the hospital, and Pam's confession of love were everything they could have been and so much more. Thanks for taking the time and putting the effort into this, I loved it!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for taking the time to review.

This is fabulous! I love a good sick Jim/Pam story and this has all those wonderful AU elements. Very well written, great dialogue, great character development. A joy to read.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! :)

This was fantastic! Great storytelling, wonderful attention to detail, and the characterization in your stories is always well done. Love this!
I noticed your call for inspiration so I thought I'd share a challenge idea that I added not too long ago. I would be over the moon if you'd consider it!
You can find many more challenges here.
Thanks so much! I was eyeballing the challenges and really appreciate the links.
I finally found some inspiration, and am currently writing a story that I'm not even sure can be properly classified as JAM fanfic, except insofar as the characters are named Jim and Pam. I might still post it here, but it's way the hell out there (in terms of being AU).

Thank you for writing this! It was a real pleasure to read, and I love the premise (well, in that way where you love something that initially makes you sad in the gut, but is clearly a great creative choice).
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the positive feedback! I'll try to keep them coming :)

Thanks for the story! It was great to have a believable alternate story about the aftermath of Pam calling off her wedding. Really good job!
Author's Response: Thanks for all of the chapter reviews!!

I expect they'd need to be gentle, since her injuries were severe and aren't that long in the past.

I'm guessing Pam told her mom that she loved Jim when telling her the wedding was called off!
Author's Response: She could have. I was more basing that confession on the Casino Night telephone conversation where Pam says, "I think I am" in response to an unknown question from her mother. My assumption (is this canon? I'm not sure) is that Pam had told her mom about the kiss, and her mom asked if she loved Jim.

I have to think coma-breath isn't the greatest. What did Pam eat that was blue? Good chapter!
Author's Response: She was sipping on a bottle of blue gatorade earlier in the chapter, having started liquids that evening while he was asleep at his parents' house. :)
Date: September 14, 2017 07:20 am Title: Mom and Dad's Waltz
I wondered if the two extra bedrooms could be used for Pam's family...
Author's Response: Good call! I actually considered that. If I'd written the middle part of the story in more detail (instead of just doing the catch-up Time in a Bottle chapter), I think I would have had Pam move in with Jim's parents for a little while. I was starting to get a little bored with the story, though, honestly.

It was a little scary that he's driving with so little sleep. Very believable that he catches himself nodding off.
Date: September 14, 2017 07:13 am Title: Sun Come Up
So sweet. I love her reaction to Jim being there.

I have to get to the next chapter!!

The punchable anesthesiologist! Brilliant.
Author's Response: Lol I actually had a couple of recent surgeries myself and this anesthesiologist was based off of mine.

As a former fanfiction writer myself, I have the feeling that you did some research for this chapter. Good job! I think every family in this situation could use a Jim to find out things for them.
Author's Response: Definitely did! I'm not sure how 100% accurate everything is, since I'm a NY native, but I have a very personal interest/experience in recovering from domestic violence. So I tried to do my honest best.
