Ah! I'm so glad you took that song and this couple and created such an amazing and lovely story.
It's so good, Sprinkles. I love this first date for them.
Right off the bat, I love how you have Pam merging her music with Jim's to create her own mixes.
The yogurt lid...Hey, it’s a good thing. The best thing. You reminded me of what was real.” It's okay. I'm fine. Nothing to see here except my heart growing two sizes.
All of the banter is great. They're still Jim and Pam, they just need to be on level ground again to find their way back to each other -- and I'm pretty sure the pink heels got them there!
I loved this. A lot. Thank you for writing it!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks Coley! I'm glad you enjoyed it, and flattered at your kind words. It was very fun to write.

Sprinkles! Such a cute little one-shot! I love that Pam is changing so many little things and letting herself be free of Roy. I also love the little ways that they are both excited and ready for this, but still nervous (like Jim saying that he always pictured a fancy first date--aww!).
"I'm not in denial anymore Jim." Again--AWWW.
Don't apologize for the cheesy fluff. When it's done well, it's always welcomed, and you my dear do it well :)
More Taylor Swift cheesy fluffs, please!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! This means so much to me coming from you. :-)

This was a lot of fun. Yes cheesy and fluffy, but that's a big part of what makes JAM so much fun. I did like that they spend most of their time rebuilding their old connection. If you choose to add to this story I could easily see that since they've re-built that part of their relationship, the deeper parts would be a little easier to talk about.
First date fics are always fun and this one didn't disappoint. Great visuals. Wonderful to envision Pam coming back to life like that as she got ready and the date progressed. Very fun.
Author's Response: Thanks warrior! Yes, the fluff and cheese is part of what we all love.

I’m always onboard for a first date story & this delivered the goods! I liked that it didn’t get too bogged down in their history/all the hurt they caused each other in S2/S3. The song really does work for them and you linked it up so well. This was a lot of fun!
Author's Response: Thank you! It was fun to figure out how to match the lyrics and the story. I'm glad you liked it.

SPRINKLES!!!!! Wow. So just take one of the "Taylor wrote this song so that people would write fanfic" songs I love and crucify me with it, okay? EVERY single time I listen to this one, I think that this would be a great fanfic for Jam and here you've done it! I love so many little details that make it unique to Jam and how undeniably sweet and fluffy and wonderful it is. And yes I LOVED it anyway. :)
But also. This line is so damn perfect. "He said he didn’t think she needed those shoes to look good, but now she thought maybe he wasn’t comfortable with how good the shoes had made her look." Don't worry about me; I'll just be thinking about the reality of that for a thousand hours. Cool.
You just did such a great job of pulling the song and the Jam and the sweetness together. PLEASE write more TSwift inspired fic. please please please xoxo
Author's Response: DC! What an awesome review! This means so much. Thank you for your kind words. I enjoyed writing this one. The song couldn't fit JAM more perfectly.
