Really good Michael voice here. We also can clearly sense that Jim's still broken up about everything. The pain of Casino Night is still there but it's eased off a touch. Especially since this seems to be when he finds out that Pam called off the wedding. Nice job bringing that out. The thing I also like about this one is that I can see it fitting in canon or also going AU. Jim getting a bit of a spark back to call Pam early. Knowing she's single and all. It was Michael who told him to never give up after all. Now here's Michael again telling him in a kind of roundabout way to listen to his heart. It also works well as just this oneshot too.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I wasn't totally sure what tone to go with for this one, since, sure, it's two old friends meeting up after one has moved away, but at the end of the day it's still Michael, so I had to keep it at least a little light. He's challenging to write for, since it would be easy to make him a dumbass who says anything remotely idiotic, but there's more to his character than just that, so it's difficult to strike a good balance. Thank you!
