Nice way to end things here. I love the idea that there was other things Jim was thinking of putting in the teapot and that even those didn't make the cut as you said, he still help onto them. Some very nice images of them there at the end.

A great ending to a really lovely fic. I enjoyed your writing style, I hope to see more from you in future!
Side note: I’m finding it a little hilarious that we both included Pam boxes in chapters posted on the same day. Great minds?

That is exactly the kind of date Roy would organize. Cold McDonalds in the warehouse. Roy all over.
Definitely don’t apologize for Jim forgetting his phone, it really paid off for all of us reading your story. I don’t really care how you get us there, as long as you get us there! Looking forward to the next installment!

I really liked this chapter. You did a great job getting into her head with the scene with Roy. Very appropriate for him there. He tried, but like always he falls short of what Pam needs. And she knows it now too. She knows she's worth more than wine and cold fast food and she's not afraid to let Roy know too.
Then she used that confidence with Jim like she did was wonderful. Re-doing Casino Night is always a fun way to go. She's got the confidence she needs to finally be really open with Jim and it pays off great for both of them. Lots of fun to see that. Nice job.

So that was kind of intense. I think it's very real to have Jim and Pam have this sort of confrontation. They're both in the middle of a storm and are getting tossed around. Makes sense they'd both have heated feelings.

Great Jim and Pam banter while they're there up on the roof. A lot of fun to imagine them up there, until things got just a little to serious. Then the image of Jim sitting there in his apartment, a hallway and seemingly an eternity away from her, great writing.

First of all, I loved this & second of all I LOVED this. The premise is great, Jim moving across the hall from Pam is a twist on The Merger that I am 100% here for.
The angst is amazing, in that way only good, well-written angst can be. The throwback “date” in this chapter hurt so good.
I can’t wait to see where you take this!

Oh my goodness! It’s my challenge, yay!!
It’s so angsty but that’s S3 jam for ya. You are doing a great job getting into their heads and their inability to be honest and open with each other and even fully with themselves. I’m looking forward to more!

Kind of an up and down ride with this chapter. Clearly Jim is still in love with Pam. However you capture the his fear of her very well here too. After being so utterly crushed after Casino Night then coming back, it makes sense that he's scared of having his heart trampled again.
Yet, he still loves her. Yes this is angsty and all, but there's still a few threads of hope woven throughout that make this story compelling. Well done.

Okay that kind of cleared up the last chapter. I got done reading the last chapter and was confused as to who exactly lived across the hall from Pam. Jim or Karen. Good on you to clear that up right away.
Good job getting into Pam's head this time around. You portray her conflicted feelings very well.

Very interesting premise. Lots of emotional beats that bring the characters to life.
Kind of a punch to the gut there near the end. They're on the phone talking having a good time and all the while Jim is not only with Karen but about to head into her apartment.

Oh my goodness! That ending made my jaw drop! You wrote Pam’s internal monologue so beautifully. I especially loved the part where Jim asked her “What’s up?” and you said, “She doesn’t know what is up or what is down or what is anything.” Brilliant!
Wow, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
