Oh man! Dwight, Roy a fast car and Cash. What more do you need?
Excellent as always, madam. Loved that Roy was so distracted by his thoughts he lost track of where they were.
Author's Response: You don't need anything more than that, I'm convinced! Yay for geeks with muscle car tendencies :) Thanks, justkaren!

"Wow. Is that red velvet?" so.funny.
Your description of Roy's memories of Uncle Frank with the grease and the Cash was such a clear visual that it makes me think it was actually a real memory. Do you have an Uncle Frank, Shan?
Author's Response: Nope, I don't, but I know a few Brooklyn natives who've relocated to the general Scranton vicinity, where they work in maintenance, and I based the description on them and their workshops. Thanks, lano :)

First of all, because you managed to put Johnny Cash in here, I give you about twenty thousand points. ;)
And about triple that for writing one of the most incredibly guy-friendship stories ever. Honestly, everything from the beginning to the end just makes it all so unbelievably realistic, from the way they start on a similar interest in cars, to the Man in Black, to the way Dwight shows how brilliant he is at cars [honestly this may seem slightly un-girlish but I would kill for a car like that. on the girlier side, if Dwight/Rainn drove it for me the geek in me would be extremely ecstatic.] - and I loved the divergence to Roy's Uncle Frank, for some reason, making this entire thing seem a little dreamier.
I loved the butt-slap, by the way. I can't really imagine Roy communicating in more verbal ways. =P
Awesome job, as always. ;) Now I'm going to go consider reading that Jim/Josh fic you have up.
Wow, thanks, moofoot! It's always rewarding to hear that the elements I ike are effective for readers as well. I like to think that Dwight has a few major talents that go unnoticed in light of his annoying behavior.
And yeah, Johnny Cash.
Glad you liked it! The Jim/Josh is much less about friendly bonding than this one :)
