Loved Pam's reaction there at the start. Seems very fitting for her. To be all flustered, especially by Jim.
Then the kiss-and-leave, yeah Iz is right. Pam's going to have a MUCH easier time with all this than she thinks.
Speaking of Iz, delightful to have her in on all of this. I love that she's there to offer encouragment and support for Pam.
All this sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun for both of them. Can't wait to read more.

Do I remember when Jim asked Pam to seduce him? Like I’ve thought about anything else for weeks?!
“shrine-boy” The love I have for this Isabel.
“This is just foreplay now” I rest my case. Isabel = the greatest.
Oh this is just perfect! Jim is gong to be so damned seduced he may just implode...

I really like that Pam is both panicked and insecure and determined to do the seduction part. The kiss was perfect, the plan is incredible, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it will play out.

Ha! I love how Jim couldn’t resist kissing her even though he wanted Pam to take the time to seduce him. I have a sneaking suspicion that she’s going to be pretty good at this and he’s going to have time not caving right away. And I’m here for it.
I also really love the girl talk between Pam and Isabel. I can totally picture it. I’m really liking this story so far and can’t wait to read more!

I love what you're doing with this fic. It's what I wished would have happened in season 3- open and honest Jim/Pam communication from the start. That final line- wow. can't wait to see where you take this story!

I mean, I think at this point he knows what she wants and what he wants, so he might feel comfortable saying that--because the end isn't in doubt anymore, just the path. And that means he can relax and tease her, as he does once they're together in the show too.

I loved all the honesty of their conversations. You completely captured how I imagined both would be feeling at this point. If only we'd had a scene like this on the show! Oh, and bring on the seduction. I'm all in.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying. I've started the next chapter.

I love this. I love how you worked in the beach games speech, and I love how you captured what Pam was feeling when Jim was holding her hand. I can’t wait for what happens next.
Author's Response: Thank you!

Really kind of interesting way to go here. They're honest with each other right from the off, including a great use of Pam's Beach Speech. Rather than just fall into each other's arms, there's still some lingering angst. That part feels real. A really close friendship broken, one trip to the bar, a couple of drinks, and some honest yes help a lot to repair that, but seems like it'll still take some time.
As for Jim saying what he did there at the end, yeah I can see it. They're both pranksters and like to have fun. From where I'm sitting now that a lot of the truth is out, that's more where Jim is coming from, rather than any sort of hard-to-get game. Hopefully that makes sense.
Nice job with this one. I liked it.
Author's Response: Thank you Warrior. Yes, you got my plan! I wanted to set it up so that the reader feels that both of them have shown their cards, and now they're going to have some fun. A bit contrived to fit the plot, yes. I think in reality no one would move that fast through the angst. Thank goodness we don't deal in reality here. 😊

“This is me trying” oh this is so wonderful! The whole chapter, the press of their knees together, actually communicating. I feel like if she just kissed him now all would be well, but yes, I love the idea of her having to win him back and romance him a little.
Author's Response: Ooh I might steal that phrase 'romance him a bit'. I'm glad you liked it. Your writing is so good - I'm flattered that you enjoyed mine.

Well, I’m always game for a Season 3 fic where Karen doesn’t exist. ;) This is super sweet and I love the way you are writing Isabel. Looking forward to chapter 2!
Author's Response: Aw thank you! Yes Karen just gets in the way.

Oh I adore this Isabel! “They’re like trains.” She’s the ultimate sassy bff and I am here for it.
“Some things don’t change.” My heart. A non-evolved Jim.
“It’s a date,” No Karen (?) and we go straight from The Merger to The Job and cut out all the angst. Yes please!
Author's Response: Isabel is almost as good as Kelly for sass. 😁
