Sorry I fell so behind, but this was so stinkin’ cute! Moving Ryan to the annex is so classic. I’m glad you were able to incorporate it. Also, I love the way you wrote Pam and Jim. Benihana fics are the best and this definitely didn’t disappoint. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks. I figured that moving Ryan in with Kelly would be a good way to deal with that whole situation. Which also means it's easier for Jim to ignore Karen since he's not looking her way anymore. It was a lot of fun to write Jim and Pam getting back to being their normal selves. I'm glad you enjoyed this so much. It was a lot of fun to write. Hope to see you on my next story.

Lol! Nice ending. My favourite part, Dwight's reaction to the changing of seating arrangements.
Happy birthday (belated) again!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review and Birthday wishes. Dwight can be a lot of fun to write so I'm glad this went over well. Thanks for all the great comments.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a lovely day! Thank you for gifting us on your day. Loved the canon adapted reveal. Dwight wanting to be notified about the desk change was so very Dwight. Very fun to end it on a “cliffhanger” like that. This has been a super fun read!
Author's Response: Thank you for the birthday wishes and all the great comments. I had a lot of fun when I thought up the ending to this chapter/story. I'm very glad you liked it so much. Hope to hear from you again when I start up my next story.

Are the TPS reports the movie reference?
Love this story. Keep the chapters coming.
Author's Response: The TPS are A movie reference, but not the one from last chapter. The reference from last chapter was "was has made me paranoid and it gets my Agent Orange acting up," from the movie "Major Paine." Glad you liked the story, but it has come to an end. I have a bigger story planned that I need to really start researching so I decided to wrap this one up. Thanks for all the great comments. Hope to hear from you again when I start my next tale.

I'm glad you didn't resist.
This was lovely and also a great way to resolve it all. The use of IM was smooth and the details of how he dealt with Ryan amused me. Very glad you went where you did with this.
Author's Response: Glad this last chapter worked for you. I'll admit I had a great big evil grin on my face when I figured out how to end the last chapter still with a cliffhanger. Thanks for sticking with this.

I come here at night when I’m putting my daughter to bed and I’m always happy to see updates from you! This time...two?! How exciting! Loved how you handled the Karen/Ryan stuff and threw in some back story on Kelly. While I love stories that show Pam and Jim finding their way to each other I also love reading stories that get them together early on...the build up and repair of their relationship is fun to read and you’re doing a great job of making it interesting while adding in those cliffhangers! Looking forward to the next update!!
Author's Response: Aww, thank you. Jim and Pam getting back together has been done so many times it can be a challenge to come up with something that is unique by this point. I'm very glad to hear that you're finding my stories compelling. Thanks for the review, I'm very glad you're enjoying this tale.

The phonecall made me laugh out loud for real. And this.cliffhanger is even worse (which means, so much better).
Author's Response: I'm glad that ended up working out well. I was debating on how I was going to have them respond to Danny so to hear that the prank worked well is encouraging. Thanks for the feedback.
Date: April 06, 2019 02:51 pm Title: Back to Form
I haven’t had much spare time this week & I’m back to find 3 new chapters! I feel very blessed. I loved that Karen’s got no grounding to be self-righteous and indignant considering that she is very much in the wrong in this scenario. The Danny scene was fun. Once again, I can’t wait to see where you go next!
Author's Response: I'm glad I could get some good chapters out quickly for you to enjoy then. Yeah, Karen and Danny aren't some of my favorites, thus those scenes. Glad you're enjoying it so much. Thanks for the review.

Lots of Danny on the archive recently...lol.
I like how you did this, though dang that makes Karen seem awful. Which I suppose was always going to happen with the last cliffhanger. Lovely job with this, and I really am enjoying the cliffhanger an episode style.
Author's Response: Yeah, I'm not a fan of Karen. Thanks for the feedback on the cliffhangers. After this many in a row part of me was thinking they were starting to get old. Glad to know people are still enjoying the.
Date: April 05, 2019 08:26 pm Title: Looking Deeper
This is fun! I feel like it's a challenge to see how many characters can be involved while keeping the story flowing in a straightforward way.
Author's Response: It is challenging that's for sure. Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Whoa! I definitely wasn’t expecting that at the end! Ryan! Can’t wait to see what happens next!
The part about Jim with a beard? Made me smile..cause Jim with a beard is very nice haha.
Author's Response: Thanks! That's kind of what I was going for with the ending. Not to bad for writing a chapter while sitting post in my ambulance late at night, eh? And thanks for the beard comment. Stop by one of our chats sometime and mention Jim with a beard or John Krasinski with a beard and the reactions can get kind of fun. Figured I'd throw everyone a bone for that one.

Ryan? LOL I did not see that one coming. What an awesome twist. Can't wait to read what comes next
Author's Response: Glad I could come up with something compelling. It's a lot of fun to have all these twists and turns locked away and then to be able to bring them out like this. Thanks for the feedback.
Date: April 02, 2019 06:55 am Title: Courage
Love that end twist! Hope Jim takes it in stride, but I somehow doubt it...
Great for Pam though! I too am a sucker for her finding her strength really early and that was awesome! Especially the slap. Well written too.
Author's Response: Thanks. It's almost like a challenge I set for myself with this story. Can I end each chapter with a cliffhanger? Glad this one came across well. Pam's realized she's got another chance with Jim and no one, not even big boorish Roy, is going to get in the way of that.

“What’s the last thing you remember before you passed out?”
Jim looked back at Pam. It looked like fear was starting to creep back into her eyes. No, not again. Not ever again. “A beautiful woman told me she loved me for the first time.” Just, just classic. Another great story. Thank you
Thanks. It's been a lot of fun to write this story. I'm very glad you're enjoying it so much.

Why does the moment have to be interrupted by Roy??!!!
Loving this story, hope you post the next chapter soon. And I hope poor Jim doesn't get his face smashed in. He just recovered from fainting !
Author's Response: Because he's Roy and while he's still around Dunder-Mifflin that's kind of what he does. Glad you're enjoying reading this one as much as I am writing it. Thanks for the review. Hope to hear more from you going forward.

I should have known you'd make sure they called the EMTs. Although if Jim was really out long enough for them to actually be called and arrive, probably justified.
I like where you're taking this...Roy returning is gold (I was wondering if it'd be Karen ala the fic on this site where Pam and Jim are doing inventory and Karen comes by with a pizza and catches them making out). Jim's gallant words about what he remembers are a treat. Looking forward to where this goes (and how you do eventually deal with the Karen complication). Great work.
I've read several fics here and other places where EMS is called in. Most of the time the author gets EMS wrong, understandably so since most authors aren't EMT's or paramedics. So when I get a chance to add in EMS, it's my goal to make sure to let people know what it's really like. And yes I've responded to calls similar to this where someone just fainted, we showed up, checked them out, and they refused transport to the ED.
As far as Karen goes? I've got something special in mind.

Oh boy. This is really the gift that keeps on giving: the most fic-worthy blooper of all time, adorable JAM times and angry Roy (I love me some angry Roy drama). I can’t wait to see what the next installment will bring!
Author's Response: Thank you. I've got a bunch of fun ideas brewing for this story. Hopefully you'll find them just as engaging.
Date: March 21, 2019 06:20 pm Title: Secret Thoughts
I don't write a lot of reviews, but I love this so much! That has to be my all time favorite blooper and I always kind of hoped someone would write a fic about it. I especially love your writing style and I'm really excited for the rest of this! :)
Author's Response: Well thank you. I'm honored you decided this was worthy of a comment. It's a great blooper and is just made for an AU. It'll be fun to explore that's for sure.
Date: March 21, 2019 05:32 pm Title: Secret Thoughts
Bahahaha!! I was hoping you meant THAT blooper. What a reaction!! I suspected what was coming but still laughed out loud when I read “THUMP”! Nice way to cut the tension for sure and I’m excited to see where you take this!
Author's Response: Thanks. It'll be fun to explore this one to be sure.
