This review encompasses last 2 chapters.
We got to read her letter and it was so rich with all the things she was feeling and needed to say - so yay for that.
I am glad however you did not put words to his. That I agree is best left to each of our own imaginations.
I think the gifting of a new phone is the right thing. Glad they did that.
The tree pickle seems a fun thing and very Dwight. Always like these little tidbits so well done.
The whole thing was just a sweet holiday treat.

It's the teapot letter in reverse - very clever.
I can appreciate that Jim's pig Latin prank gave her just enough hope to continue the prank.
Even though we don't get a transcript of the letter I think what she wrote was so poignant and heartfelt.
I always love to hear the lines or scenes that resonate for readers so when I can I like to point them out in my reviews-
He was evolving and she wasn't part of the evolution. That was a great line. As was the took breaking up to get a decent present.
I love to bake, especially holiday cookie but I've never used a press and now I think I might need to try one. Looks like fun.

Why did it take me so long to start on this story?
Full bookshelf. Spreading the reading. Overdosed on holiday fics. But I finally got to it and right from the start I am immersed and truly enjoying it.
Ok so Dwight saying “move cat” was purr-tect.
That Dwight can tell the height the bike accommodates.
Always tripping over a cat.
Floppy haired idiot.
Love all these lines.
Love that we get mention of Danny (even if it felt so off canon even in the show).
And Sprinkles. Lots of great fun. Look forward to more.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. I was nervous about writing Dwight but it turned out to be a lot of fun.

Congrats on knocking out a WIP! I throughly enjoyed these last two chapters and laughed out loud at the Dwight and Angela bit. The pickle ornament was perfect. I actually have one, too, so I really got a kick out of that. Lovely little way to button the holiday season. Excellent job, friend!

As much as I like them to find out about their mutual feelings via fight or hard talk, there's something endearing in confessions via letters. It makes me warm and fuzzy and sends me so many Jane Austen vibes that I feel an urge to put on a bonnet and drop a few tears (in fact, I feel a lump in my throat reading Pam's letter, so I guess that counts).
And I like it so much that they didn't jump into relationships immediately but wanted to make things right. Just awww!
Thank you so much for writing this story!

Honestly, I’m glad that Jim’s relationship with Karen ended a little more quickly than it did on the show. As much as I adore his and Pam’s relationship, I feel like it was unfair of him to use Karen as a shield from Pam, to use her as a weapon to fend off his emotions for her, and I think she had a right to be angry.
But, of course, I couldn’t care less what happened to Karen if it meant that he and Pam ended up together, and they did. I believe the ending was realistic and true to the show, as all good office fan fictions should be, and I wish you a happy new year.

Delightful way to wrap this one up. Thanks for sticking with it and bringing it to a close. Kind of sad for Jim that he had to go through the break-up with Karen. However at this stage in that relationship it feels like a lot less sting than had it gone on as long as it did in canon.
Jim and Pam's reconnection was adorably sweet. Her showing him how to wrap presents was sweet. The image of what they then used the scarf for was sinfully sexy. And then they're back together as partners in crime. Nice way to round that one off too.
You got Dwight and Angela perfect. The double meanings for everything. Dwight underestimating that the cats would give away the game, and of course the odd yet sweet romance that is the Dwangela relationship.
Pam's final thoughts were the final cherry on top of everything here. What could be better than picturing her and Jim curled up together like that? Bravo.

The cat swatting at the pickle ornament had me laughing out loud. It’s too real.
This whole chapter was perfection, just the right amount of fluff and fun and Christmas spirit!
Your Dwangela remain so very brilliant. I’m so very glad you came back to this story this year!

A semi-rough ending for Karen, but hopefully she ends up in Utica with Dan anyways. I really like domestic Jam enjoying this Christmas together at the end of all the angst. I love that Pam tried to make things right with Dwight. And I *adore* that her version of making things right with Dwight is also a continuation of the CIA prank. Very them. This is just a very cute ending to this story, I’m sad they didn’t get it.
Angela engaging in double entendre and the runner about Dwight’s pickle are really funny, if deeply disturbing.
Lastly: the three pieces of tape thing has bothered me ever since I first heard it. I do not believe this is possible. I support Jim obeying the letter but not the spirit of this law.

You know it's a good story when all I can do is just grin and stare at the wall for a minute. I reread the whole story just now, and ugh, NLM. You captured them so beautifully. the awkwardness they had ever since Jim came back, but still being able to fall back into their banter so easily at times. And then Jim reading her letter and giving her the teapot letter. UGH. AND THEN THE KISS. I'll never be over it. I hope you post the last chapter soon!!

Lovely to see an update with this one. It's all very sweet. Pam's letter is on point. I love that him reading hers is what triggers him to give her the Teapot Note. And as it usually does in an AU, Pam reading it is what finally gets them completely together. Great fun to see that especially with kisses in the snow. Hope to see the wrap up soon.

I'm pumped you've come back to this one... and just in time for Christmas! Like Jim and Pam getting together, worth the wait.
I *really* like this interpretation of the sequence of events post-Casino Night - we don't see nearly enough fic that leans into the idea that Jim's departure was a necessary precondition to Pam calling it off with Roy.
I think having already written Pam's version of the teapot card was enough - and I love that his discovery of hers and him finding the teapot leads to her finally receiving his, and the grace note of them having used the exact same signature line. It's all just very sweet and very them. They're operating on the same wavelength even when they're not speaking, and it ends up getting them to where they want to be.
