Hi, hello, what's up. This oneshot is just....AMAZING. You did an absolutely incredible job with this. Whatever amount of white claws you drank to do this...do it EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. haha. Can we talk about Jim being like, I ONLY CARE ABOUT YOU.
EXCUSE ME WHILE I DIE.
There's so much love, angst, and passion. I want 1000 more fics from you like this.
A million jellybeans to you, friend!

Now that was an epic of a oneshot. I very much get that Karen is trying to change Jim into something he's not here. With his broken heart it feels like he was kind of letting her. I feel Jim there when Karen manipulates the bartender. Yes, Jim pranks Dwight, but I don't feel like Jim was ever mean about it. Karen's attitude does feel spiteful. Small wonder Jim's already got thoughts that they're not right for each other.
The couples table vs the singles table does have a good contrast. Good on Jim to be nice to Kelly there. Both Jim and Kelly are in relationships with people who (at least in this story) don't seem the best. They both need some cheering up.
Jim's moment of clarity outside of the tent with Pam was a great thing to see. With all his earlier doubts and seeing Pam alone, I get that it would be a bit to much and he finally does the right thing.
The whole sex in the shed though? I mean did they really need the heater considering how hot it all was? Them just going for it like that, hoo boy.
Good on Jim to make sure to end things right away with Karen. End it now and be done. No it's not pretty or painless, but it's done.
The rewards are that Jim and Pam are finally together and it's lovely.
Great job with this.

Couple things I really liked about this:
-the singles vs. the couples table, and Jim’s sheer horror at spending the evening with Kelly/Ryan and Michael/Jan. Pam’s presence aside, you’d definitely pick the singles table out of those two. And the subsequent painful awkwardness of those three very unhappy couples.
-Michael getting kicked out – seems delightfully karmic considering how horribly he screwed up Phyllis’ actual wedding.
-Jim finally getting to run his hands through Pam’s hair. Squee.
-“As gorgeous as this dress is on you, it’s in the way.”
-The Click Five! Very appropriate – absolutely the sort of thing young Pam would have dorkily danced to.
I always assumed that Roy and the warehouse guys were invited by Bob Vance. He’s tight enough with them to have them at the shower and to more or less immediately offer to hire them when they think they’re going to be laid off in Branch Closing, it made sense to me that connection would be strong enough to get them to the wedding – and I think in a smaller wedding, they wouldn’t make the cut exactly as you wrote.

This was such a clever premise! The whole bit with Jim pretending to be Michael and then Michael ultimately getting kicked out was hilarious and totally in character. And then the shed. Oh, the shed. Totally hot but also very sweet, and they still find a way to navigate their emotions and all the tension before, during, and after. That was great. I have to confess though, my favorite part was the last line. Funny how Dwight is the one to thank here. Such great work!

SHED FIC!!! I remember you mentioning this a while ago and I have loved getting to see updates about it in the chat! I couldn't wait for you to post it and I'm so glad you finally did! This was so good. The pink bra and underwear made me smile because of her cardigan, and I loved Jim and Karen pretending to be Michael and Jan, even though Jim didn't lol. And Michael getting kicked out for "not being Michael" was so funny. And then in the shed? Ugh, so good. Where are my fire emojis? Great job, em!!
