A lovely and funny Christmas story that despite not ending how I expected was still very satisfying.
Very clever in how you had them picking each other's similar gifts even though they hadn't chosen each other. Especially in the was you worked out how Phyllis would wind up ceeding the job to Pam (with a knowing smile).
YOur Michael is very Michael, with his gift ideas but especially in how he does the snow angels. And not only did you tie in the homemade presents but made Pam's allegorical to her relationship. Nice job with that.
Pam and Jim playing in the snow is just delightful. And that kiss at the end - even if not the one expected, it still warmed my heart.

Amazing! You had me holding my breath at times, throughout! I was rooting for them to break the barriers of their friendship but it wasn't meant to be on this occasion! You write their friendship so wonderfully and can totally imagine all the characters just as they should be.
Poor Pam struggling to make something for Roy and Phyllis having to rescue her. I'm sure whatever it was the Roy made her wouldn't have met the original scarf's standard either way.
Loved it, good job!

Oh the tension between these two. I mean clearly they realize on some level that there's something going on between them. Ah well, they figure it out in the end so there's that.
Pam trying and failing to knit seems about right. Lots of cute images there. The backstory for her necklace was a nice to get in there. Typical Roy doing the least amount of work though. Jerk. Wow, Dwight and Angela are in fine form here. Granted it's pre-show so they haven't had some of their rough edges sanded away, but wow. They were just mean. That even Michael would pick up on that and call out Dwight yeah.
Their moment in the snow by the snowman just about killed me. Beautiful but those melancholy hints were just about right. The cheeks kiss though was lovely. Pretty much as much as they can get away with for now.
Well done for sure.

This was so great! Loved that Christmas makes them both stupid, so cute.
The way they were both so concerned about the other getting a good secret Santa present and then the accidental matching scarves was great!
Loved Michael’s upside down snow angels and Jim and Pam’s little wrestle. The tension in that, my god.
Just the right amount of angst, you had me rooting for a non-canon kiss, but I’ll happily settle for one on the cheek.
Awesome work as always!!!
