“I hope when we hire an actual customer service rep that Angela likes them more than she likes you." Oh, Pam, you sweet summer child. Also, the Rugrats reference! PANDER TO ME!
I really like Marina! Such a fun addition to this world. Although she is possibly evil.
Awwww, Jim. You have such a crush. Eh, I'm sure it'll resolve itself soon enough. The stocking stuffers are too cute.
"The absolute dream was how she felt right now with the mistletoe hanging above her and Jim – like she was about to receive a Secret Secret Santa gift from her Secret Secret Wishlist." Like this line a lot!
Oh, Pam. He knew full well you were looking at the mistletoe. He's just not prepared to believe yet...

For a pre-season fic where Pam is still engaged to Roy I can very easily see why she'd be so conflicted about the mistletoe. However it's also somewhat refreshing to have her realize this early that she's outgrown Roy. To it's going to take a lot more time and a whole lot of angst to finally figure it all out.
That being said, it was still very cute. Seeing the I have a crush jitters and all. Marina also feels like a breath of fresh air. If only she'd stayed around longer maybe both Jim and Pam could have gotten the perspective they both needed.
Well done for your first fic here on MTT. It was a lot of fun.

Okay, this beginning feels very canon-complicit. The way-over-the-top Michael dopiness is fun. And I do love Pam immediately selling out Marina. It's interesting seeing her with a pre-Jim partner in crime! She's well-characterized in a brief appearance here.
"she tried to ignore their warmth from being on Jim’s hands. She tried not to think about how it was kind of like holding his hand." Eeep!
Congrats on posting your first story here! Welcome to MTT! Looking forward to more from you.

Welcome! This was great and I can’t wait to see what happens in chapter 2! Marina is a great addition! I loved this sweet little gesture from Jim that made Pam’s heart swoon… her secret gift to herself… thanks Dwight for spilling the tea! Brought back early memories of Office episodes when the Jam connection was so strong and yet, neither acted on it. Love Pam’s sweet doodle of mittens on Jim’s message too. Hopefully in chapter 2 we find that this Michael even will have propelled these two star crossed lovers together— and I can imagine Marina might play a part too… ;) Thank for sharing!

Welcome to posting on MTT, glad to have you adding your stories.
Kind of fun little walk down memory lane. I like that you trusted your readers enough to know this is a pre-camera story. Also Pam acknowledging early that she has at least crush like feelings for Jim. That she likes the thought of holding his hand. We did get some of that in canon so it's nice to see how some of those feelings came to be.
As for the ingredients, up to you. If you don't want any spoilers than you can wait till the end of the story. Otherwise it's your call. Looking forward to Chapter 2 for sure.

Glad you stopped lurking and posted! Congrats on your first story!
Super cute, I LOVE the idea of Pam taking off her engagement ring when no one can see and pretending she's holding Jim's hand. Her secret gift to herself, omg that's too cute
Marina sounds like a lot of fun!
