So so so good. It brought back so many great memories of my own senior prom, and you wrote all of it SO well. But of course, no surprise there. Every part, every emotion, every conversation and kiss and the steamy parts and all of it. Just perfect.

I was very much looking forward to this chapter. Imagine my disappointment that as soon as I see it's posted I have to first sit down to dinner, then rush off to work. Ah well. Good things come to those who wait.
Just superb! Even through the bits and pieces of the conversation with Karen, there's enough there that you can see the drubbing she starts out giving him. Then as soon as that little smile crosses his face, I can just see him come back to life. Granted I'm sure she would have been more than pissed off during that speech, but it finally brings him back.
Love that Pam is there to take care of him the next day. She's caring and patient and the woman he fell in love with. But so much more than that.
Just wonderful to imagine them during their first day together like this. Finally both on the same page, it's a delight to read. Thank you for this story. It may have had your usual ups and downs, but it was a great ride all the way through.

Awwww what a sweet ending! And I love that they went to six flags. Can’t we get a sequel about that day? I want to go to an amusement park through someone else’s eyes. At least while in quarantine 😅

I dropped EVERYTHING to read the end of this and....wow. What a PERFECT way to end!
I loved the intertwining of what he told Karen and what he told Pam. Very Jim thing to do, it felt so natural.
Also, as a native Pennsylvanian seeing you reference I-476 (also called the Blue Route by locals. Don’t ask why, idk why honestly), I smirked hardcore!
This was so well-written, kept me on my toes. 100/10 would recommend

That was beautiful and painful, and I left reading a few times because it hurt that much.
But the ending made up everything, and now I'm just dying to know what happened between Jim and Karen. I have a feeling it would be painful as well, but I'm prepared now.
Thank you for an amazing story!

Oh. Okay. Okay, AG. This is how you’re going to play it, hey. You know depressing metaphors are my jam, so like I was already invested from that opening note alone.
How on earth did you use Jim’s thoughts to make me feel sorry for Karen?! That was a ride.
But, then you somehow created maybe the best version of Kelly to ever exist?! I’ve never loved her more.
And, then to top it, you gift us with bent, but not broken Pam and Jim coming back together. Keep the updates coming, please and thank you.

Yeah, kinda figured Jim would be put through the wringer. There's no getting around it. While I'm very curious to get a peek into that conversation, it can wait.
Kelly here though. Wow! Fancy New Kelly here tonight! I love that Kelly is the one to give Pam the oxygen she needed to get through the rest of the night. I got the impression that Pam was still figuratively going through the coal walk there. There's still some things to burn away. Bravo that she has the mentality and bravery to hold on just that one more night.
Clearly she learned from the pain of the past. It's not the same kind of pain as I usually ascribe to the aftermath of Casino Night. Similar yes, but not the same. However since she's already gone through that she knows now how to bear up under it. That doesn't make it any easier or that she wants to, but she's able to.
The ending was dece? That was well more than just dece. I don't think there could have been a better way for that to end. They're bruised and battered but they're not broken. And of course now they're in each others arms again which of course is always wonderful.

Nothing to be sorry for in my book, I enjoyed the drama, and it certainly padded the run time. The ending was indeed ”dece” as the kids say.
Thanks for writing, looking forward to the next one.

MY JAW DROPPED AT THE END. Holy crap. I know this isn't gonna end with Jim and Karen being together (or at least it better not) but Pam's heart breaking is killing me. I loved this.
