roy made me cry. this was such a unique story, i have thought about 'what if it wasnt dwight' many many times. this was so well written and in character. great job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I love how it really could have been anyone who found Pam, and in the end, Dwight finding her was perfect.

That was so good! I absolutely didn't expect it to be Roy! And he did great too. And the ending? Niiiiice.
Author's Response: Thank you!

Aww that was so cool! I like it how Angela tried to be comforting. It just shows how much people in the office actually care about each other, even though they never say it.
It was well written - especially the last chapter! I was sure it was Jim! It should have been Jim! But I guess that's just part of the office, the person who really needs to know, never finds out.
Author's Response: Thank you! I think that everyone in the office does care about each other, in their own strange little ways. :)

Wow. This was just great.
I love how you use the same line to begin every chapter -- it adds a real sense of connectedness (continuity?) to this story. You did a really nice job with all of the character voices in this piece, but I think my favorite was Roy because even though I obviously want Jim and Pam to end up together, I do have a little bit of a soft spot for Roy just because he's trying so hard now. It's just nice to read a story where he's not a villain -- he cares about Pam and that's nice to remember.
Your last line is killer. I love it.
Thank you so much!
Author's Response: No, thank you for reading and reviewing! I have such a soft spot for Roy nowadays as well...I even wrote a story about him, such is my love lately. :)

This was pretty much amazing. Great job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much!

Ooh, this was awesome. The Andy and Kelly ones tickled my funny bone, the Toby one was very sweet, and ohhh, that last one. Poor Pam. My heart's aching for her. I can't wait for the new episode so I can see for sure that she's ok again!
Author's Response: Thank you! Hopefully now that she got that out of her system, newepisode!Pam will be determined to get Jim....or at least not help his relationship with Karen again.

I love how this story articulates Pam's pain, but also showcases each of the characters so well. You really got the Kelly-ness of Kelly, the Andy-ness of Andy... I found the Angela and Toby sections particularly touching - Toby is just such a mensch and I loved Angela dropping her brittleness for a rare moment of empathy. And also how Pam responds to Roy comforting her without confusing it with wanting to be with him. Sad and lovely and funny in all the right places.
Author's Response: Thank you, Colette! I can only hope that in the show, Pam doesn't confuse herself into wanting to be with Roy again....

"“Other people crying is SO sad!”" made me laugh and tear up at the same time... aaand I can't believe I just admitted that... I'm loving this!
Author's Response: Heee, admitting is the first step. Thank you, lano!

“Where did they get in their fight? Was it in the warehouse, because I didn’t see anything. Oh! Was it in front of your desk, and you were like, sitting there, and they both kept looking at you. With love! And then they would pull some hair. Or, no, boys don’t pull hair. Maybe…”
All 5 of these snippets were lovely, in their own ways, but I laughed out loud at that Kelly part. Too funny.
Author's Response: Thank You! :) I get very 'shippery about Pam and Toby as well. And it means a lot that you liked that one - it was a bugger to write.

I really like this. Very touching, and I think you captured Pam very well. I especially like Roy's chapter; how there is still a tenderness between them (rightly so). Great work!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I think that after ten years, that tenderness will always be there. *sigh*

The best chapter yet. Roy saying "It's not about me, is it?" was so sad. I do hope you continue this.
Author's Response: Thank you! Enough people have said something about continuing that I'm thinking about it...

I loved seeing the softer side of Angela - and I liked her understanding of the situation - “I know that love can be…unforgiving sometimes.”
Author's Response: Thank you! Too bad on the show, we never get to see her softer side. Although I bet Dwigt sees it sometimes. ;)

Very inventive, I must say. I was totally expecting Jim as #5, but you definitely went way above expectation. Go you! This resolution was much more tight and secured, anyway. Way to stand above the rest!!
Author's Response: Thank you, Winky! Having Jim find her seemed too easy.

I loved Pam asking Kelly why she didn't buy waterproof mascara - that was a riot! As was Kelly's scenario of Roy and Jim fighting over Pam.
Author's Response: Thank You! I like to think that Kelly has already envisioned the big showdown, just like the rest of us. Hair pulling and all. :)

Chills. At first I thought it was Jim, but I have to tell you, I wasn't disappointed when I realized it was Roy. That moment they shared at the end of the show this week was so poignant (his little "Oh brother" just broke my heart for some reason). I could have easily bought it that he had come upon her crying after Dwight left - or at least, knew she had been crying. Something about that last scene...
Anyway - what a great job here. And your last line here is so touching. Are you planning on continuing this? I'd love to see it with Michael, Darryl, and of course Jim. Ooh, or Karen!
Thank You! Yeah, that last scene just killed me in BfV...they have such a melancholic vibe together now that breaks my heart. I have such Roy love lately.
I don't know if I'll continue it...though it was tough to NOT do a Michael one. Perhaps I'll reconsider...
Anyway, thank you for the lovely review(s). :)

Okay, the image of Toby kneeling in front of her? Heartbreaking. This one was hard to read - the whole suspecting that Toby knows because Jim and Karen had to register is such a horrid thing to consider. :o) Another great chapter - on to the next scenario!
Author's Response: Isn't that horrible to think of? I wish that Toby had actually found her, because I wish I could get a screencap of something...I entirely made up in my own head. So sad.

You were able to capture each character and what their instinctual reaction would be so well. Kelly making it all about her, crying like a baby made me giggle a bit.
Author's Response: Thanks, MA! It's good to know I can make people giggle.:)
