I read the whole story with a huge smile on my face that didn't go away even at the most awkward and angsty moments. I like this idea, and the realization is just perfect! And there were so many moments I adore — my favorite, probably, was when Pam thought that fire wasn't the best thing to build a relationship on.
Thank you for this sweet story!
P.S. It doesn't relate to the story, but I share Dwight's feelings toward 'The Hobbit' movies...
Author's Response: Thank you for going back and reading this old thing (this is literally the first fanfic I ever wrote for the Office)! I'm glad it held up. I also share Dwight's opinions...which is why I chose to write them in ;).

I really can't believe it took me this long to actually read this story. Lots of fun throughout really. This last chapter though? Pure gold. I laughed a lot when Helene put Pam in her place about the speakerphone. Great bit right there.
Author's Response: Thanks, warrior! This was my first fic, so it's really nice to hear you enjoyed it!

Wonderful story!! I love the angst and their moment happened so wonderfully. It's nice to see a story where its not just Jim feeling electric when he's touched by Pam, because sometimes it can be the other way around!
Author's Response: Thank you! Looking back at this (my first fanfic in over a decade) really takes me back...I'm glad you found it and liked it!

I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for writing it!! :)
I love that it ends with jam and JAM.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading! And it might be a little too pat but I started with jam/JAM and I wasn't going to finish without getting that last one in.

I'm glad she got through to him what she meant.
The emails...it's Mark's computer, so is it Mark emailing Pam's mom?
Author's Response: Jim's still logged into his email on Mark's computer, which he was checking while drunk. This will be clarified in the next chapter (which will include calling Pam's mom).

Ya know... I have been around mtt for a few years now, I have read nearly every jam fic we have...
And that ring, when mentioned, is always such a powerful symbol for both Jim and Pam.
To read it as *just a ring* for Pam is definitely something new (that I very much enjoyed) but with everything she's gone through in such a short period of time I can absolutely see how something that used to represent so much was completely overlooked and nearly forgotten.
And yet to Jim it was still practically all he could see.
Also, I love this determined Pam.
Author's Response: Thanks! Determined Pam is my favorite Pam. I'm going to give a little more of Pam's thoughts on the ring next chapter, but I do think at this point it's actually more significant to Jim because she's talked to Roy and he hasn't.

Cliffhanger! I love that MTT is tweeting links when there are updates, so I can't miss a thing!
Author's Response: Well, we won't spend too long on the cliff. There's a nice ladder down ;). And I didn't know that, since I don't use Twitter. Sounds useful! Glad you don't want to miss it, I hope I can keep living up to the desire to read.

Still loving this, can't wait for the next chapter! Also "poorly concealed love" is definitely the way to describe how Jim looked at Pam the first few seasons. 😄
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm really enjoying writing it, hence the frantic update pace. And I think I have that facial expression of Jim's permanently burned into my mind, so I'm glad to know it came across in the writing.

Now you have me imagining one of them stumbling onto MTT, that would be interesting 😆
Author's Response: I tried to avoid recognizable sites like even this one, but I agree it would. I think that's something like the premise of GodInThisChilis's Sky Blue and Black (to which I am obviously indebted).

I love this chapter, Pam freaking out about seeing Jim in his "non-work-clothes" is very cute & very Pam and the banter is great. Looking forward to Jim's POV
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you enjoy the Jim-chapters. I'm trying to catch the feel of their banter without going into too much detail because I know I'm not Greg Daniels & co., so it's good to hear it's working.

Oh, yay! I'm so glad Pam has made this decision, and that's she's realized, Jim or no Jim, that Roy is just wrong for her. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! I did not want to write much Roy, so I hope this was sufficient to at least give a taste of how I see that relationship (and why it was right to end).

I didn't anticipate him finding out at the same time she did! Wow!
Author's Response: I'm glad I could provide at least a few surprises along the way (since I think we all know where this is going in the end...) :)
Date: September 21, 2017 06:46 pm Title: Chapter 9
OMG! Pams Mom!! I was NOT expecting that! Do I like where this is going? Yes, yes I do!
I'm biting my nails as I read about them doing such mundane daily life activities. And I cannot wait for more :D Ps. I just gave you all my jellybeans. I like this that much.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really appreciate hearing that. I'm planning to stick to at least one update a day until I finish it, so there should not be a long wait for more. :)

The plot development works great and the Jim and Pam interaction is believable. Good story!
Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words! I'm very glad to hear that, because I was worried it wouldn't read right. I hope I can continue to hit those marks.

Of course Dave did it *shakes fist at sky* Dave!
Love the Dwight & Pam interaction.
Author's Response: Such a Dave :). And thanks. For some reason Dwight seems easier to write than I expected. Not sure I want to ask myself why...

This is such a cool idea for a storyline, and I'm excited to see where it goes! Also beet jam? That is absolutely genius and absolutely Dwight-like! I really enjoy your writing style :)
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I really appreciate that. I thought of the beet jam on my way home from work and simply could not avoid putting it in right then (and distressingly, at least to me, it is actually a thing).
