"Yes, you can. And you will."
That was awesomely hot. Thank you!

um, i wouldnt be able to keep my hands off of him either. because that is just absolutely ridiculously hot, and so in-character for jim, as far as im concerned - he definetely has this underlying sense of power and control beneath the floppy hair and boyish smile. GUH. i repeat: HOT!

Count me as another one who was incredibly moved by in-control Jim in BfV. So, how much did I love the way you wrote him here? Love how Pam is so turned on by seeing him like that - that she can't keep her hands off of him in the car after the meetings (much less, the kissing in the elevator and roadside interludes.) She seems very Pam here, but is also a great vicarious figure for all of us drooiling Jim fans. Also like how she's discovering new parts of him (TWSS, I know) and finally really getting to know all of him. Just great. And happy. Thanks.

Oh, man. Loved this. Like a lot. Because I'm a lot turned on by the new in charge manager Jim. The cold open of this week's episode with him leading that meeting? I mean, it was sort of hot with the way he was holding his pen and sitting at the head of the table and-
The point is, that YES. You've written Pam so perfectly in this and I loved this: "But sometimes she'll look down, only to find her own hair twirled around her finger."
SORT of hot? That cold open has ruined me for life.
Thanks for your review, unfold! I'm glad you liked this and that I'm not the only one who thinks Jim in charge is the hottest thing ever.

Great fic! Was this from Pam's point of view or Karen's? Is it meant to leave us wondering?
Very insightful though!
Author's Response: Actually I was afraid some people might think it was Karen. But since I'm so anti-Jim/Karen I had to go back and fix it to make it more obvious that this was about Pam. Since Karen is a saleswoman herself, I doubt she'd go along on Jim's calls just to take notes.

oh! incharge!jim. love it. the way pam knows jim so well, all his facets is really good. and the way that she watches him. excellent.
Thank you! How could she NOT watch him! I could see Pam being really fascinated with that side of Jim since that's a side she doesn't see often.
Thanks for reading/reviewing!

Aaw, I really liked this. I love in charge!Jim and how he is so good at his job, but he's not arrogant about it. Nice one.
Thanks! That is definitely my favorite side of Jim and one that we really never, ever get to see, so I had to use my imagination on how he'd handle himself during those sales calls. Hopefully I came close.
Thanks for your review!

If I were Pam, I wouldn't be able to keep my hands off Jim after a sales call, either! Nicely done.
Thank you! If I were Pam I wouldn't be able to keep my hands off Jim AT ALL!
Thanks for reviewing!

Oooh, I'm digging InCharge!Jim, too! I wouldn't need to the Happy Meal bribe to follow him anywhere.
Please tell me she isn't Karen.
No, no, no. That was Pam all the way. Maybe I should have done a little more to make it more obvious. Hmm.
But for some reason I don't see Jim offering to buy Karen a Happy Meal!

Ok, well THAT was just favorited! HOT!!!! Man there is something about Jim in control! There's something hot about someone who suddenly switches gears like that!
I loved it all, but this was one of my absolute favorite passages:
She especially likes watching him when the client is a woman, because he has a certain way with them. He's effortlessly charming and so subtly flirtatious (and if she didn't know him so well, she wouldn't even be able to call it flirtatious). It gets her excited, because he's hers and he talks like that to her all the time. Except with her, he actually means it.
Thank you LoveFool! I love the idea of Slacker!Jim turning into InCharge!Jim the second he's with a client. I'm convinced his charisma is what gets him to be such a good salesman.
Thanks for your review!

Well then! Jim with charisma is just a little too hot to handle. *fans self* I'm going to have to take a step outside now!
So I love this. A lot. Because of the Jim. And the Pam. And the fantastic writing. And oh, yeah, because of the awesomeness. <3
Thank you! As I was writing this I had to take momentary breaks to stand by an open window. Just kidding. But not really.
Thanks for reviewing, fireworkfiasco!

Are you kidding me? With all honesty, I like that side of him a lot, thank you. Assistant Regional Manager Jim is on my Christmas list at the end of the year. [yes, I think very far ahead.]
I love how you've written Pam, here; in fanfiction we've seen quite a bit of Jim!lusting, but Pam!lusting is either over-the-top or not enough at all, and this hits the spot right in the middle. That, my friend, is talent. And I love Jim. =P So very in-character; I would expect him to be like that, the car ride, the conversations, the sales calls. And I also adore how even though there're differences in the way they act around or with or because [?] of each other, essentially and basically they're Jim and Pam through and through, from the McNugget to their elevator rides and [I loved this detail:] them running out of places to pull over after the sales calls.
And lately I've taken to thinking of how Jim and Pam would be, in secret!relationships around the office, and I would love them to be like this. If the cameras were around the office, we would definitely notice them both gone. ;)
Yeah, that's it. I'm going to read this again and fall in love with Jim a little bit more, now. Woohoo!
Yes, I have officially wanted Asst. Regional Manager Jim since his Validity Committee Meeting during Benihana Christmas.
I was actually worried that a lot of people wouldn't even be able to tell that this is Pam, since this falls sort of under AU (which I normally don't like to do). So I'm so, so happy that you said that she wasn't over the top. And that you thought Jim was in-character. For some reason I have such an easier time writing him than I do Pam.
If the cameras were around, there's no way we wouldn't notice them missing...and I'm sure the people in the office notice it too, but somehow I think they wouldn't really care and they've always sort of guessed there was a JAM thing.
But I still think that Jim and Pam would try to keep it under cover!
Thanks for the review, moofoot!
