This story is one that made me become an MTT member; I devoured it twice in a row. You really captured the reality of marital conflict, including how the growth from it can be kind of beautiful. Thank you so much for writing this! I love each chapter so much!

In response to your response: Oh my gosh, no. I absolutely don't think you copied and, honestly, I wouldn't have cared even if you had. No two people tell the same story. No two people write the same. So even if we wrote about the same exact incident, or followed the same prompt, we wouldn't end up writing the same thing anyway. :) But I know you didn't copy--I was just saying I think it's awesome that readers were treated to different treatments of the same moment in canon. I love that--that's what fic is all about. :) Thanks for writing it and sharing it! I loved reading it. :)
Author's Response: Thanks for your response to my response to your review, ha! I thought thatís probably what you meant but I have this weird thing where I assume the worst (so fun!) so thatís where my mind was. And I agree, Iím glad that there are multiple interpretations of the same unseen scene, especially one that packs such a punch. Thanks for reviewing and responding, I appreciate it so much!

Mmm, yeah, this was all really good, each segment. I liked how you divided up the story. This whole storyline and time of their lives is ripe for gap-filler fic, and I love seeing it. :) Still think it's funny and awesome how this and my segment on the same incident came out within a day of each other. ;)
Author's Response: I saw that! I had been writing this for about a week before posting it since I wanted it to be posted in its entirety. I hope you donít think I copied off of you or anything! And I agree-we definitely need more fic from the later seasons and post series! So much good material there that goes unexplored.

Oh wow. So many things to say here. I’ll try to keep it simple. I absolutely loved how the fight didn’t actually resolve much, and that you showed how Pam was still on the fence. That they had to break down in therapy. It’s so real, especially in this situation. No cotton candy and rainbows and instant fixes. Loved that! Oh, and your payoff was well worth it ;) Excellent read!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Iím glad it reads as realistic. It was a lot harder for me to write than I anticipated, because I wanted so much to just wrap it all up nicely at the end of the fight, but thatís obviously not how marriages and arguments work. Thank you for reading, reviewing, and complimenting. They mean so much!

Okay so I'm making an executive mod decision and giving this an insta-Dundie because oh my god this is good. You just captured the S9 rift perfectly, neither one is all right or wrong, they just have gotten out of sync and have no idea how to get back. I think people don't always see how much Pam's insecurities and fear influenced the situation but you included all that perfectly. Really you managed to make both Jim and Pam very simpathetic but also frustratingly stubborn, it all felt very real and true to the characters and the situation.
And after 5 years I finally have my "Nice morning too" fic and it was indeed a very, very nice morning, thank you!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I am honored and flattered and SO glad you liked it! I hate that thereís so little S9 fic and I always wondered why. Now I knowóitís a difficult space to get into! I struggled so much with making sure neither one of them were 100% right or 100% wrong, because I think they both have valid arguments, so I am so so glad that at least one person feels like I succeeded in that! Your compliments mean so much thank you again! And when you mentioned the other day in the SUT chat that you needed a ďnice morningĒ fic, I knew I had to get this out of my head and onto the page (so to speak) because who am I to keep Noble Overlord Mermaid waiting?
