I read this when you posted it, but I can't believe I didn't comment on such a powerful chapter! Man, I love where this story is going. I know Pam will have to work through what happened (I know these things happen in threes and she's had two but I really hoping there are no more tragedies that come her way!!) but I love that there's still Pam under that craziness.
Man, I love how you wrote that female officer. Great work there.
Also, I really love how Jim is so dang tough in the middle of the craziness (he got in a good 17 punches on Roy and I didn't hate that at all), but then a little bit of his guard comes down (as it should) and he feels a little helpless once he gets to his parents house.
Oh and that scene in the bathtub. So wonderful.
Great work! Keep it going, girl.
I'm blushing :) I love your comments so thanks for always doing it haha. Honestly this chapter took a ton out of me, I havent touched it or looked at in a week I was just like exhausted, I took a lot of my own experiences and wrote that in there (never been assaulted thankfully) but panic attacks are my line of expertise haha. Thanks so so so much for always reading and reviewing new chapter will be up soon!

I am so proud of you!!
Also, sleep paralysis is freaking scary!
(I’ll message you a story later about that later)
Author's Response: It's because of you! (no pun) Hahah seriously if you hadn't reached out to me that one day this story would be no where and please do!

Oh wow. That was intense. But let me saw that what you did was real and raw and very well done. Pam being up in her head through shock, and then having a snap into reality and needing to be out of the clothes, and Jim helping her through the panic attack was very powerful. It takes a lot of courage to write something like this, and you did an excellent job! I can’t wait to see how they overcome.
Author's Response: OMG thank you so much for this review I want to frame it haha I was tell warrior in his review I suffer from sleep paralysis and panic attacks so I was able to bottle that feeling and write it, but the actual sexual assault took some research. Thank you so so much again18 for reviewing, I get so excited when you do.

Ok, first off one small but important thing, at least from my perspective. EMT truck? Really? The term is ambulance and yes they do have them in Canada.
All right now that I've got that out of my paramedic system. Well done on your for creating emotion. Even before I started reading this chapter I felt my pulse quicken a bit. Skipping past what Roy did, cause the less said about the specifics the better, even though you did a good job writing it, the image of Jim pounding in Roy's face just in the nick of time was good , if that's the right word, to see.
Pam's reaction afterwards is very realistic. As part of my job I've unfortunately had to respond to similar calls. Pam just sitting there in shock, seemingly trapped in her own mind and body is actually very similar to how some of my patients reacted.
I love that Jim is just there for her. He's not pushing her to talk about anything. Especially since this is all just so raw. He's just simply there for her. I'm sure his continuing love and support is what will help Pam through all of this.
So all in all a powerful and intense chapter to be sure. Well written and very detailed. Glad we'll be getting back to fluff soon as that's always more fun to read.
Author's Response: I was looking forward to your review hahah I was so nervous because I remembered you were part of that, sorry for the miss! It was definitely fun I told BOY how my heart was pounding when writing this because its the most intense thing I've ever written. I suffer from sleep paralysis and panic attacks so I felt like I was able to kill the internal struggle but the actual assault took some research. SO glad you enjoyed it warrior, you are like a reviewer mentor to me haha I look for your reviews for where I can review so thanks as always!

So that happened. This is actually a really good version of shock. Terrifying of course but convincing. I'm glad you'll go back to a fluffier fic but please don't let it be too easy--that devalues and degrades the effect of something like this. Don't lose sight of this having happened when you get happier (but yes, please, you do fluff very well so I'm glad you're going back to it).
Author's Response: I always kind of gotten not that vibe from roy from the show but like you wouldn't have been shocked to hear about it, especially how he was when he wanted to leave the dundies early, kind of grabby. Im so glad you liked it! Thanks for always reviewing :)
Date: January 25, 2019 06:55 pm Title: Chapter 17
I’m so glad that others mentioned this too, but I LoVe how you include descriptions of what Pam is wearing. It creates this great visual that sets the scene but is personalized.
What a great chapter! Your description of Pam’s anxiety is so in character and sweet but very applicable to the story. Ugh. Roy is the worst in this story. I hope we get another chapter soon because I am hooked on this story.
Date: January 25, 2019 05:01 am Title: Chapter 17
Yeah, I figured Roy wouldn't take things well. Hopefully Jim arrives in the nick of time. Roy has always deserved a good ass kicking and hopefully this time around Jim will be the one to deliver it.
Great chapter as always.
Author's Response: You may just get what you wish for warrior, grab your whiskey and some pop corn.
Date: January 24, 2019 07:16 pm Title: Chapter 17
Oh boy! Shits about to go down. I am mentally and snack-ily preparing myself for this smack down (I bought popcorn).
Also. This is super random, but one of my favorite parts of this story is that you dress them in immense detail. Is it weird that I picture a Jim and Pam paper doll as I read those parts?
Snort-worthy comment of the chapter goes to:
“Jeez, Beesly, how many clothes did you bring?”
“The same amount of shoes that you brought.”
I am oddly entertained and super all for fashionista Jim.
Author's Response: Hahaha I don't know why but Im always terrified that my writing doesn't have enough details and its blain so I got super over board and yes I have actual cut outs of their outfits in a notebook so I don't repeat hehehehehe Im a loser who fines immense joy in this. Thanks again18!!!

Why do you do this to us?!!! You leave us with this cliffhanger and then we have to wait more than 5 minutes for the next one XD
And poor Pam keeps getting manhandled. She needs to carry some pepper spray in her purse .
Please don't let the whole weekend go by without posting the next, and hopefully very long, chapter.
Date: January 24, 2019 03:06 pm Title: Chapter 17
Oh my gosh the cliff hanger! Aaaaaaaahhhhh! I keep thinking this can't get better...and then it does! Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm glad I keep getting better!!!!! Thanks for reading and reviewing and staying around!!!!!
Date: January 24, 2019 01:05 pm Title: Chapter 17
You better keep that promise.
Also, I'm glad you do both POVs, because otherwise some of the power dynamics in a boss-employee relationship might seem a little awkward in this story. As indeed it appears it does for Karen. Having both of them constantly reassuring us how they feel about the other is helpful.
Nice though to see how supportive everyone who isn't drunken Roy is of Pam's work though. I like seeing Pam's art getting some respect!
Author's Response: Don't you worry its coming!!! I figured dropping a cliff hanger I needed to have the next one up fairly quickly so I didn't die. Thanks as always for reviewing :):)
Date: January 22, 2019 08:08 pm Title: Chapter 16
Oh, I love this chapter. You’ve done a great job with Darryl, one of my favorite and underutilized characters. The pictures were SO great. I have too many pictures of these idiots for inspiration. These are great. I can’t wait to see the Roy interaction in Canada.
Author's Response: I gotta stop screaming every time I see you update, I get WAY too excited hahah fan grilling over here. Thanks for reviewing!!!! All I can say is shit is about to go down.
Date: January 21, 2019 06:38 am Title: Chapter 16
Thanks for the pics! The house is pretty much how I pictured it, and so is the ring. So really great job with the written descriptions.
Jim’s kinda controlling in this fic, in a charming kind of way.
About the gossiping in the office, Pam should put a stop to them by telling her side. That way she controls the story that her coworkers are dishing about ;)
I can’t wait to read what happens in Canada and with Roy. Also, I really want to know what Jim’s parents have to say about this relationship. Will they be as accepting as the Beesleys?
Hope you post many chapters soon!
Author's Response: New chapter will be up super soon!!!! I think the Halperts will be even more accepting and fun. Especially when Pete and Tom get their hands on Pam.
Date: January 20, 2019 05:06 pm Title: Chapter 16
Excellent chapter so far. Darryl's right. When you know, you know. Kinda make sense that this Pam wouldn't have as much experience dealing with the eclectic personalities of the office.
I really love how infatuated Jim and Pam are with each other. Lots of fun steamy fluff that's great to see.
I like the reference pics too. Great way to see what's going on in your mind when writing this one. Looking forward to the next chapter as always.
Author's Response: They way I wrote Darryl is actually the way my fiancés grandfather told him when he wanted to propose but he thought it was too soon and he literally said who fucking cares marry the girl hahaha. I have a ton of reference pictures I'm way too visual to not have them hahah thanks again as always warrior!
Date: January 20, 2019 02:48 pm Title: Chapter 16
“Still haven't decided if I wanted to make sweet love with her or just fully devour her.”
LOL. Have I told you how much I love the Jim of this story’s universe?
I also love how Darryl is the voice of reason. Who cares that you’ve only known each other two months, Jim? Marry the girl!
Also, entirely okay with there being a duel in Canada. Just sayin’.
Author's Response: I still fangirl when you comment haha just love your work!! Darryl just seems likes the voice of reason for anything in life, like he's THAT friend haha. Canada should be pretty exciting!
Date: January 20, 2019 12:16 pm Title: Chapter 16
Ah, this is so good and I'm so hooked! I check daily for updates! I can't wait to see how Pam and Jim are going to handle Roy. And thanks for the reference pics!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading!!!! next chapter will be up super duper soon!!!
Date: January 19, 2019 07:35 am Title: Chapter 15
I like how you’ve written Helene! Your intent seems very clear when I read it. Boozy Helene and Laid Back William are nice to see in this AU.
Although I will say “Shush it, Helene” about the beard. 😂
Ooooh, I hope we get to see Christmas in NY. I look forward to how you write Jim’s family with Pam in contrast to the Beeslys meeting Jim.
Date: January 16, 2019 10:51 am Title: Chapter 15
I remain enjoying this. Dang Pam's family is tied up on Jim's money though. I love how she, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be.
Author's Response: I don't think even like Jenna Fischer would ever be tied up just doesn't look like her haha. Thanks!!!!!!
Date: January 16, 2019 07:44 am Title: Chapter 15
Filler chapter yes, but fun. Good description on the ring. I like how easily Jim fits in with the family. Nice to see some moments like these rather than just all drama all the time.
Author's Response: Thank you! I get nervous about fillers and if they're boring.
Date: January 11, 2019 08:18 am Title: Chapter 14
Oh god I really hope those are reference pics for the Raptors stuff and not for Helene's question...
I do love Jim making breakfast for Pam in fics. It's so sweet--and you did it quite well. I find your Helene interesting; she feels more based on second-Helene than first-Helene from the series, am I right?
Author's Response: Dead on, I loved beginning show Helene she was just so cute, but I thought this Helene would be a more comical relief. I wish I had a reference pic for Helene, you know study material for the class ;);) thanks!!!
