As someone who has been doing little other than immersing herself in Hallmark Christmas movies for days, this was so very in keeping with the trope. Just adorable!

WW, this was so CUTE! I loved all of their costumes and wish we’d seen a cinema Christmas party in the show because it is a perfect idea. Jim’s dialogue was excellent, I laughed out loud at the Hallmark movie comments and the bystander #3 joke. And then the trees and the ornaments seemed like exactly the thing he would do, and *of course* they’d have a mishap that would result in an ER visit. Loved this. Great job!

This is adorable. It is so fitting that Michael would want everyone to dress up for Christmas like this too. All the characters were a treat to envision. Pam's dejectedness when she sees Michael as Buddy and he immediately goes to the shower scene is just so on par. Delightful banter between Jim and Pam as the day goes on. It's a treat to read. Especially lines like Jim saying things about their kids and Pam swooning at the sound of it was just so great.

Now lets talk about that walk down memory lane shall we? That was just so wonderful. Simple, memorable, sweet, loving, all rolled into one. More memories to add to the teapot as they go though life? Yes please. All the yes. Seriously that is one of the best Jim gestures I've ever read.

And then to ER they go. They're still together though. Pam in her elf costume, Jim's nose bleeding, but even now they're there for each other in sickness (or trauma)and in health. Great job.

Author's Response: Ahh warrior, your reviews always make me smile. Thank you so much!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

How wonderful this story is. 

Now the picture of Jim in yellow tights is burned in my head  - but I love that he becomes the male lead in every Hallmark Christmas movie.

And I love all the movie references throughout - that made a really fun read.

The tree surprise so romantic and so Jim - really just the best kind of fluff.

I love added characters so George was a little bonus to learn about.

And even a trip to the ER is made a moment with these two. So Sweet.

I gave you a jelly bean but I'm giving you a candy cane too for this fic.



Author's Response: I will take all your jelly beans and candy canes. :) I’m so glad you liked it!! Thank you for reading.

WW! Lord knows I love a great Christmas fic and this? This is a great Christmas fic.

I also love Christmas movies and you mentioned almost all of my faves. While I love the idea of Pam dressed as Jovie, this is the line where I genuinely laughed out loud:

"Kevin grinned and nodded. “Get it? Because he’s Kevin.” “Yep,” Jim nodded. “And I’m Kevin.” “Got it, Kev.”"

It's just... I could hear both of them having this conversation perfectly and it delights me.

Also delightful? Meredith dressed as the leg lamp, Phyllis' meatloaf, and Toby as the Bunny. A Christmas Story might be my favorite of them all. *shrugs*

The whole office party sounds like a great time, and I really do love how creative you were with the Cinema Christmas theme. I might steal that for my own workplace christmas party if we're ever allowed to have in-person parties again.

Oh. OH! How could I forget Pam asking Jim if he's dressed as every male lead in a Hallmark Christmas Movie. That was a solid moment of joy.

Oh, and Jim's christmas trees full of memories? Listen, the highest complement I can give a story is asking "how dare you" and honestly, WW, how dare you? It's such a cute and sweet moment and now I'm just going to pretend that Jim got the idea when he was watching Hallmark movies on his own.

"“Not how I saw that ending, if I’m being honest,” he said, his words muffled by the scarf." It can be hard to nail down Jim's tone in fics sometimes and I just want you to know that you nail it here. That line made me laugh in the best of ways.

Ugh, it was all just so good. Seriously, I'm going to read this a few more times before Christmas probably. Great job!

Author's Response: Girl, this review means SO much!! I’m so glad you liked it, because I consider you the queen of the holiday fic. So thank you!! *takes your “how dare you” and displays it on my fridge with pride* Also, Christmas Story is 100% my favorite. Always will be.

You have the Jim-Pam banter DOWN. The teasing exchange about his Christmas costume and the pure cuteness at the beginning are both lovely. There are a lot of great little moments here.

You continue to demonstrate a good handle on Michael. His IMMEDIATELY being inappropriate about accidentally dressing as Pam’s movie love interest is dead on, as is his disgusting spaghetti.

Jim’s scheme at the end is lovely. You’ve done really well building up their history, because of course Pam spilled something on their first date, and obviously they’d be making up stories together to entertain themselves in endless meetings. And putting new memories in the tea pot? You slay me.

Seriously. This is an accomplishment. Well done.

Also, I don’t care what Pam says – Jim as the Ghost of Christmas Present is hilarious. And very in character. Flip side, Nightmare before Christmas totally counts as a Christmas movie.

Author's Response: Your reviews are always so wonderful! Thank you! It makes me so happy that you think I have Jim and Pam’s banter down, because it’s my very favorite thing to write! So that means a lot. And Jim would probably agree with you that Nightmare Before Christmas counts as a Christmas movie, but any chance to mess with Dwight, amiright?

Well that was just a perfect Christmassy fic. One I sense will adorn future MTT advents! Going into my favourites immediately. Nice work!

Author's Response: You are too kind!! Thank you SO much! I’m glad you liked it. :)

Awww, I love this! It's cute and sweet and, to be honest, I ADORE the way it ends :) A couple of times, I had to Google some characters (my knowledge of Christmas movies is regrettably meager), but when I saw what costume you chose for whom — excellent!
Thank you so much for your story :)

Author's Response: I’m so so glad you liked it! I threw in a lot of references in there, so I’m sorry you had to search for some of them. Haha and thank you!!

WW, this was so freaking good. You NAILED everyone's costumes, especially the whole Michael as Buddy and Pam as Jovie. I had to go watch the trailer for Elf after reading this! 😂 I could definitely see this being on the show, very much including the milestones and the notes and the ornaments, and even the trip to the ER. Brilliant in every way, my friend!

Author's Response: Thank youuuu!! I have you to credit for the Hallmark movie lead line, so I definitely owe you!

Okay, so this was perfect. Michael being dressed as Buddy while Pam was Jovie was amazing. Of course he would bring up the shower scene right away. Everyone's costumes were spot on. I could picture every single one of them. And then the milestones. Ugh, just rip my heart out and stomp on it in the very best way possible, why don't you? That was such a perfect Jim present. I loved the inside jokes you created and then the iconic Jam moments that we all love. The hospital scene was just the icing on the cake. "But then he looked over at her and decided that even then it didn’t matter. Beggars can’t be choosers. And he’d choose her every time." Ugh. I think I'm dead. This was SO good, WW. A perfect Christmas story.

Author's Response: Lady, you’re too nice to me. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! (And that you gave me ideas for it hahaha)

Aw! I love how sweet, fluffy, and adorable this is! The teapot being used for their firsts together? Ugh I'm crying. Precious. The ER trip threw me for a loop, but I'm dying. What a funny way to end this cute story. Awesome job!!

Author's Response: Haha I was asked to include a hurt/comfort element, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity! 😂 I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
