That was really spot-on. Such a great tact to take with Roy, who sometimes comes off in fic as just an oaf, but I think this is more accurate. Loved it.
Author's Response: Thank you, DinkinFlicka! He may be an oaf but there's got to be something underneath! Thanks for reviewing!

Oh my goodness. This is absolutely wonderful. I can't tell you how perfectly I think you've captured the character of Roy -- it's so easy to look at him and just pass him off as a jerk who didn't give a crap about or deserve Pam, but the way you've written it here explains so much of his behavior... I love it. You even wrote it in a voice that reminds me of Roy, so it's really like it's his chance to explain himself. Awesome, awesome job.
Author's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful review! What you said about the voice really meant a lot to me because I didn't intend on doing that but it was starting to turn out that way. Thanks so much!

Wow, that was an amazing characterization of Roy. I knew he wasn't a bad guy, just a confused one. I can't tell you how wonderful this was. Write. More.
Author's Response: I agree! He comes off as the bad guy, and I hated him in season 2. But now I just really, really feel sorry for him. I don't want him and Pam together, but I still feel bad. Thanks for reviewing!

He didn't want to be that guy, with the girl who could always do better.
God, this killed me. I've been discovering a whole new love for Roy lately, and it's not that I want him back with Pam, I just feel for him, you know? This was really frigging fantastic.
Author's Response: Thanks, Pixel, that's actually the line that sums up what I think Roy is actually thinking now. I really appreciate such an awesome review. Thank you.

Oh, lovely. I'm so glad you've painted Roy as this deeply trouble man-boy who just doens't quite get it, but wants to so badly. This is lovely and light and dark and hard, all at the same time.
Way to rock it! ;D
Author's Response: Thank you, fireworkfiasco! I've always felt that there was something deeper about Roy, like he's more than just a frat-boy charicature. Thanks for the awesome review!
Author's Response: Ahem. That's "caricature." Thanks.

Oh, wow, you really made me feel for Roy here. And that is a whole new angle on the Booze Cruise and why he set the date, rather than just being a big, careless oaf. Well done, 69cups.
Author's Response: Thanks, lisahoo! I like thinking of Roy as more than just a doofy meathead. It gives me a reason as to why Pam would stay with him for so long.

Another awesome story, 69CON! I felt so badly for the Anderson kids growing up, especially Roy. It's easy to see how his childhood shaped the man he became. Very well done.
Author's Response: Thank you, kaystar! If anyone deserves a backstory, it's Roy! Thanks for reviewing!
