I loved your title names so much… Pam and Jim’s first Valentine’s, their last Valentine’s, and now, their Forever (Every) Valentine’s! Very creative! I too, like Jim, forgot about the horrible comment Roy made to Pam until you reminded me… ugh… did you hear that universal cringe???
I love how Pam literally made sure Jim had a Valentine’s Day kiss literally the second he woke up—so sweet! And his card to 6 year old Pam is actually an acceptable use of Pammy— pretty much the ONLY acceptable use!
I love 9 year old Jim too… SO appropriate for that age! And middle school Jim brought me back… we’d always do those carnation deliveries and I loved them! At work we just did candy grams on Valentine’s Day and it was so fun!! Good job Jim! In fact, all of teenage Jim brought me back.. including the movies! How appropriate that they saw 27 Dresses… perhaps a nod to the Booze Cruise 27 seconds of silence? Perhaps my fave was Jim and Pam sneaking into his parents home for a basement couch hook up… only to be interrupted by said parents… SO appropriate for 16 year old Valentines Day!
College V Day was so funny.. especially them waking up post weed… but adult V Days were the best… love their eventual date at Luca’s because that’s so what Jim would do… make it just slightly different than a dinner date but even more special by arranging a special private morning brunch… and the key was perfect! The mini golf “instruction” by Jim was funny and sweet, because I can totally see Jam (especially Jim) getting cozy with Pam in the guise of helping her perfect her putt. I loved the dad getting annoyed behind them too! So appropriate!
The last two Valentines are the best… going back to the roof with grilled cheese and the picnic blanket… especially because Pam too recognized the magic of that moment with her sketch. Of course it was so meaningful to Jim! I loved his “recovery” Valentines gift too— one they will surely make good use of!
Thank you for this sweet Valentines celebration! You always write the sweetest fic for Jam, especially for the holidays! It’s always delightful to see what you’ve done next! And to think, eventually, we’ll have an HD Jam Valentines Day too!!! Coming up soon, right?!?!? Jk jk jk… kind of! Happy Valentine’s Day to you too! This was the sweetest gift to us from you!
Author's Response: Ah thank you so much for yet ANOTHER epic review!!! So glad you liked this one! And don’t worry, there will be an epic HD vday planned!

Oooof. These are some terrible Valentine’s Days for both Jim and Pam. You write the most cringey Roy that I cannot stand… just super clueless, oblivious, and selfish. Poor Pam… and listen, you can totally let her get pineapple on her half of the pizza! If this is Roy trying… it’s not so good.
And Jim… poor Jim. Clearly pining for his soulmate Pam. At Luca’s… they’ll get there… just gotta get through this cringey Valentine’s Day first. Although, I will agree with Karen… carnations? I’ve never understood this about Pam, and don’t even really think they actually were her favorite flower. That being said… if one is presented even with said carnations… one should respond graciously and acknowledge the gesture of kindness! I loved how Jim was so miserable on this date that he was even contemplating the paper costs of the menu… pretty bad, clearly. However, I’m hopeful you’ll soothe us over in the next chapter with a shared appetizer and some of that penne ala vodka??? Lovely as always friend!!! Thank you for sharing!
You know I hate Roy, so I love to write him like this!
Carnations…yeah I don’t like them either, but Jim got them for her the following year, so I guess she does like them!
Glad you liked this chapter!!

Not gonna lie… could it have worked out with Susie? I mean, the girl loved Judy Blume— couldn’t be that bad, right?!?!? Just kidding, just kidding!!! I love that Jim isn’t quite sure what a truffle is, just that it’s something fancy and special to give a Valentine! And Pam… poor Pam… you are kind of selling me on Tommy over Roy, even if Tommy didn’t appreciate her pun— but WHY is a 6 year old Isabel getting roses?!?!?!?!? So sweet… I always love your holiday treats for us! You’re too sweet to us MrsK!!!!
Noooo not Susie!! But yeah totally Tommy over Roy hahah
Thanks for your kind words!

Jim making up for all Valentines Days past was just so typically sweet and over the top of him. Lots of fun to imagine them going back through the years as if they had been together that long. Of course even if they were reliving their childhoods they still get into plenty of adult activities too. Just all sorts of sweet to see them open and loving like this. And they'll have the rest of their lives to make new memories with each other too.
Lovely job with this one.

Not a great day for either of them here. Trying to be with the person. They chose but can't stop thinking about the person they want. Lots of similarities too. Roy and Karen don't like the holiday. Jim and Pam of course do. Some differences though. Roy coming in drunk and acting like he owns the place, and her. Karen not thinking it would be a big deal to not be with her boyfriend. Yeah that would be a hard hit to both Jim and Pam's hearts. Still at least Jim and Pam still have each other on the mind.
Author's Response: I think that Valentine’s Day would have been so hard for both of them coming right off the back of Phyllis’s wedding. At least the next one is better!

Starting out really early with this one. It was cute to see their early personalities start to come through. Jim already falling for a girl yet being a little scared to make a move. Yet when he does it works out. Pam hoping for something more than what she's had in the past. Then getting kind of disappointed because the guy she thinks she likes doesn't quite respond how she would like.
Nice look into their early lives
Author's Response: Why thank you :)

OMG Lady, how perfect was this?! Absolutely spot on, captured the mood perfectly and this feels like some genuine deleted scenes from S4. Bravo!
Author's Response: Oh wow! Thank you so much!! So glad you liked this one :)

I have no sympathy for Karen because she could have broken things off with Jim when she found out
about his feelings for Pam. She let herself get hurt in the end. As for Roy, all he did was reaffirm to Pam that calling off their wedding was the right decision.
Roy and Pam are really too different, so if there was no Jim, they would still be wrong for each other.
BTW when are going to get an update for Hello Daddy?! I’m really missing it. 😥
Oh exactly. I never understood why Karen stayed with Jim after The Return. Made ZERO sense. And Roy. Well, that was just a terrible choice.
I know, I'm so sorry about HD! It will be back soon, there's just some fics that are time sensitive that I've needed to/need to write! It's not been forgotten though I promise!
