"I tried to write an entire chapter of this story without someone crying. I'm moderately proud of myself in my success." You in fact did not succeed because here I am crying. I feel like Jim rn, frustrated that I can't do anything about this. I love the moments where things start to come back to her, they break my heart and make me smile at the same time.

“Why didn’t she just, like...tell him she had feelings for him instead of waiting until he was engaged to her best friend and planning a wedding?”
“I don’t know, Halpert. I could ask you the same question.”
Ag, When I tell you that my heart STOPPED. I kid you not when I say that all I could do was audibly gasp and stare at the computer for a good two minutes after I read that. And then I cried at the end when she asked him to stay. My heart hurts so bad.

Wonderful and painful story. Though I was expecting a happy end, the roller coaster was tremendous. I don't know how I feel if read it on-going, he-he :)
I like the way Jim acted every time so much... the world doesn't deserve him. And I felt for Pam so much, the whole situation she had trapped in absolutely horrifying. Glad, she didn't lose her senses and restored some part of her memories. And Roy... I felt strange compassion for him, especially in the last scene with him.
Than you so much for this story!

Aww, you finished it! It's so lovely, thank you for all of it, but especially this chapter. I really enjoyed that you didn't make it too easy on them, even though they did get there. It feels more realistic (weird word for an amnesia story) to have Pam still have those gaps, and to have her be bothered by them. It really rounded it out nicely. Great work!

Wonderful way to wrap this up. It's all very sweet and at the same time very real. I do appreciate that while there is a happy ending, there is also the very real after effects of the whole ordeal. Jim's sleeplessness, Pam not quite remembering everything, everyone starting out on eggshells around her. All seem like very likely outcomes of everything.
Thank you for including an update with Ben, Annie, Cece, and Nora. They were a delightful part of the whole process and it was great to see them again. Little Cece is still adorable with her bluntness that's right on track. She's one of my favorite OC's on the whole archive by the way.
It's been awhile to come to this point, but thanks for not leaving it in limbo. I've enjoyed it throughout and will continue to enjoy re-reading it in the future.

I absolutely love how you painted such a vivid picture of Stamford and their reunion there without making it long and drawn out. It was the perfect amount of pain and hope and a spectacular parallel to present-day Jam.
Man, AG, Pam WOULD have this wave of guilt and intensity at this point. And you wrote Jim's response just perfectly. So many little word choices really show us how hopeful they both are in a very scary situation. I keep scrolling back through to find an example of this and then I just get caught up each time in how perfectly it's all written.
I know this story is likely starting to wrap up but I REALLY hope we get to see Penny again. (I really love how you wrote her in this story.)

So, I love this chapter in its entirety but I have to point one thing that really stands out as exceptional. Everything prior to Roy showing up at Pam's parent's house is supposed to have this quiet, calm, stoic cadence and I FEEL that in your writing. I don't know if it's the word choice or the intimacy of Jim putting on Pam's makeup or the calmness of the office but, whatever it is, I really got that sense of calm just reading it. Very impressive!
Now...about Roy and that video. I don't know if I'm mad at Roy or thankful or annoyed but that was really good stuff. That ending "I didn't see you" got me. Hard.

The first part got me a little confused, even though there was that "driving the east coast" part. I guess I forgot that, in your story, Pam drove all the way to Stamford.
Other than that, such a nice, warm, lovely chapter. I actually gasped when I got the update alert and, yeah, I had to go back and read the last chapter. I liked, back then, how Roy does his best and he is genuinely concerned. And, in this one, how Jim is still so careful and scared and relieved all at once. Beautiful.

Well that's all adorable and that kind of sad-happy that gets under your skin of course, as in the whole story, but I'm getting a little confused on continuity and where Jim is and when he and Pam got together in this AU. That said, glad we got an update, always happy to read more of this.
Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for the feedback! I’ve gotten two different comments that continuity is confusing (which means it’s definitely on me), so if you wanted to PM me about what is confusing so that I could fix it, I would appreciate that :)

This certianly has been a long time coming. I know I've been looking forward to this update for just about forever and boy did you deliver. I loved the flashback at the start. It was great to see them like that. It set the rest of the chapter up perfectly.
I loved Jim here. How he just knows that the only thing he should do is just hold her. It's at the same time the most simple and yet the most profound thing he can do for her. You describe everything so well here it's hard to narrow down anything.
I get the feeling that the dam holding her memories back isn't broken exactly. Rather whoever it was who was in charge of keeping the floodgates up got distracted when the images on that DVD showed up. They leaned forward on the control lever which released an inadvertant flood over the walls of the dam. It didn't break the dam, but did send a rush of water down the valley that carried off a lot of debris that had been choking the river. Enough for Pam to realize, if not exactly remember that link she shares with Jim.
That last image of them sitting in bed there, with Pam declaring her love for him again? Beautiful, just simply beautiful.

Wow! Of all the things I thought might happen, having Roy do that was no where near being on my radar. It's such a change from the Roy usually seen in fic. I like the change. Roy has let her go and now just wants her to be happy. It's really a great thing to see.
The walk around the office was great.I really liked that Michael had one of his rare moments where he's actually a good man rather than the man-child he usually is.
Pam reaching out so desperately for Jim like this though? Brilliant. Not sure what else to say other than that.

OMG ROY! You're like... You know, it all makes sense in such a beautiful way. How Roy is simply direct and blunt and sometimes a beast because of that. And how Jim would do the noble thing and be slow and just tiptoe around things waiting... But right now, I think Pam really needed that pull, and Jim wouldn't have given it to her. So, thanks Roy.
I love how much in character you've kept them all in this. Best chapter ever.

You make me cry a lot with this story in general, because you're really good at evoking emotions. But this one in particular. I feel blessed that you got us to this point with 3 updates in a day too. Thanks so much.
Specifically, I like Roy actually being helpful, I like Pam being triggered by all sorts of things, and I'm a big fan of everyone in the office being actually respectful for once. Well done. Out of jellybeans for this a long time ago, but I'd give you all 5 for this chapter alone.

This was very cute. I love that it's his shirt that triggers some new memories. Pam's been through so much it's great to see her starting to get some happy memories back. The visit to the office I'm sure will be a can't miss it kind of thing.
