This was the cutest thing! I was holding my breath through each chapter waiting for something to prompt Pam's voice and it was so bitter sweet for it to happen when it did. I'm so glad you gave us closure in the final chapter. What a beautiful story and meaning behind it. Have all the jellies

Sad to see this come to an end! It was such a cute story and loved the message on communication; for sure words aren't always the biggest needed thing! It was great following young Pam's story and their reunion was fun here with the familiar art. Well done!

Whoa! Big time jump. However I'm so thrilled that once Pam found her voice she never let it get locked away again. Even though the anxiety was there she had found the courage to set it free and she never looked back. Then to find out that Jim might be the one starting as the new guy at the office? That's a much different kind of anxiety. A good giddy kind that we can feel starting to bubble up from her.
For Jim his initial anxiety is one of longing. A time and place that meant so much to him and is now calling back. Then he sees her painting and the longing goes into hope in an instant.
The image of them just rushing forward to reunite is absolutely lovely. At long last she can communicate with him with more than just looks and drawings. He finally gets to hear her and of course takes it in good humor.
This was a wonderful tale to go through. A different take on our familiar characters for sure but they also still felt the same. To wrap it up in a nice JAMMY way was the cherry on top. Great job.

What a lovely chapter to finish this fic off. It's been the sweetest thing, and I'm glad they met each other again!
Looking forward to lots more from you. Sorry I'm long out of jellybeans, but you deserve them all!!
Author's Response: Aw thank you! I’m excited to get started on another!

ABSOLUTE LOVE AND ADORATION FOR ALL THAT IS THIS UNIVERSE!!!
Raspberry tied in SO many snippets of canon with the reuniting of Pam & Jim, her white sneakers, Creed popping up, and paintings on the wall... HOW MARVELOUS AND SWEET!!
We will all absolutely miss updates for this wonderful world, but wish Pam & Jim all the best as they now move forward talking with and without words.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! You have always been so helpful and supportive! Appreciate you!

Oh I wish I still had a jelly bean for this moment. For Pam to finally find her voice is HUGE! I only wish Jim had been there to hear it. However at the same time, she also has enough strength on her own that she can speak for herself. So that's a nice bit to it. Hopefully sometime soon Jim will be able to hear not just see what's he's meant to her.
Author's Response: Thank you… you’ll love what’s coming!

My apologies that it's taken so long to review these latest chapters.
Pam being frozen because of Jim's departure rings very true here. Just when things were starting to look up, he's gone. Considering everything with this one this feels like a very real reaction. But then Angela is the unlikely ally. Nice to see that side of Angela for sure.
Author's Response: Thank you! And no worries, it’s taking me forever to update!

Oh Pam. Yeah I feel for her here. To have Jim say goodbye and like this I'm sure hits hard. That she spirals into I can't is a good tie into Canon. And it's Angela who steps in. Good choice there. For all of Angela's hard exterior, there is someone underneath who cares. Dwight standing by until there's a need for action rings true too.
I don't think she can see the lighthouse right now. This feels line a big storm that's churned everything up so that there's no chance of spotting land. All she can do is try to keep her head above the waves.
Author's Response: Poor Pam :(

Jim's leaving! Ouch! And just when Pam is starting to get some courage. Looks like Pam might have to find her courage for herself a bit. Oh Jim, not even telling her. I'm not sure what's going to sting more. Him leaving or him not telling her. Feels like there's some troubled waters ahead.
Author's Response: the next chapter is intense!

NOOOOOO…. Not okay…… oh my goodness, how you blended the canon in to this beautiful AU, brought the sudden departure in a way that is completely natural to this story. I am crying with sadness for how this may go next.
Author's Response: Aw thank you!

Love that Jim can find so much meaning in her painting. And that all the art captures his imagination. However it's Pam's work that truly has his attention. Pam leaning into him is wonderful too. The idea that it's Jim's friendship that's melting away her chains of muteness is a wonderful image. Clearly Holly and Helene see it too. And then there's Michael coming in like that. Yet another person seeing Pam's worth. Feels like we're at the start of something big here. Wish I had more jellybeans to give.
Author's Response: Aw thank you so much!

OMG OMG OMG!!! THAT WAS GORGEOUS! I can see the watercolor, I can feel the breeze as the swings gently sway...I see my childhood elementary school with its red brick and small playground.... I LOVE THIS!!!
And, you kept in that Mr. Scott purchased the picture!!!
I am nervous why we need to brace.....
Author's Response: Aw thank you!

Yay! This was adorable. We love supportive bestie Jim being there with Pam at her art show and understanding her own form of communication. And love how you worked in Michael buying the painting into this! Look forward to the next one.
