I really love the way you write Jim and Pam. Their conversations just seem to real and the tone was just right. I especially love the part where they couldn't sleep when they're away from one another. This was such a great story!

Author's Response: Thanks, bkwrm! This one is so old, and so much has happened since, I'm just glad it still held up for you. ;-)

So good!  You write such real dialogue, but this paragraph hit me so close to home.  I can remember a few mornings like this in the beginning of new relationships. 


The next morning, she’d woken up first, and alternated between dozing and watching Jim sleep. When he’d finally opened his eyes, he’d smiled hazily and reached for her. They’d made love slowly and simply, as they had many mornings. Barely awake, Jim holding her close against him, achingly deep deep inside her, moving just enough. Just right. Afterwards, they’d fallen back to sleep still wrapped around each other and when they’d awoken again it had been almost noon. And perfect. And, Christ, she loved him.

Author's Response: Aw, thanks, Sweetpea...yeah, mornings like that are a lovely thing (and just imagine adding Jim to the mix.) So glad you found this - and that you think the dialogue is believable too - always something I worry about. Thanks again!

SQUEE!  Those last two sentences are amazing.  And I never use the word "amazing," because I think it's way too overused, so you know ya done good.  :)

Great story.  I loved it. 

Author's Response: Glad this fluffball gave you a good squee! As I recall, it was written mid-season, for medicinal purposes - to treat the symptoms of Triangulitis. (Silly me, I still thought the actual infection would just run its course and go away.) And I agree about the liberal use of the word 'amazing' - which makes me all the more flattered that you've used it here. Thanks so much, invis!

Aw, so sweet!   I especially love this:  Sometimes she thought she’d be happy living in his pocket, if she’d fit.

Author's Response: Thank you, allibab! I love doing their dialogue, but you never know if it reads the way you hear it in your head - so much appreciate the feedback. Just a silly thing, but it was fun to write.

As usual, Colette, you rock my world! Thinking about them cohabitating after the near misses we've had lately? What a great idea. Clothing optional? Even better. And of course, you had to work some physics in there as well! Well played...

Author's Response: Well, since he's now living up the street from Ms. Near Miss, I had to do totally besides the point. And, I'm sure you think I'm making this up by now, but I SWEAR I know virtually nothing about Physics...don't know what's gotten into me lately with that (clearly it's your influence, darlin'.) Thanks for stopping by and weighing in (physics, again?)

Author's Response:

Hey, me again...I think I just came up with a good excuse for all the physics-talk: because that thing between Jim and Pam is like a force of nature. Corny enough (but, sadly I kind of think true.)

They both had standard doubles, hardly big enough for two. Especially when one of them was Jim-size.


Ok, for some reason this line CRACKED me up..."Jim sized" lol. Can you even imagine having to share a bed with him? Um...hmm...let's allow that marinate for awhile...LOVED this story!

Author's Response: Oh, it doesn't require much marination...I have no problem imagining it at all. In fact, I often do. Anyway, so glad you loved this - and thanks for letting me know!

"If you don’t count the three or four years that you owned me"

Oh, yeah, did she ever. I love this line. Jim has that insight into himself, had it all along probably, but it didn't change anything. I like how you get all of that into that one line.

Loved the all too brief fantasy of a three way with MARK that you conjured in my head. You witch.

I loved Pam needling Jim about her crying on Dwight's shoulder. That's precisely the kind of thing that would make him squirm like a cat on a hot stove.

Sometimes she thought she’d be happy living in his pocket,

Hell, yes. Right there next to his. Um. Well. You get the idea.

‘I still can’t sleep without you,’ he murmured,

This is just all kinds of awwwwwwwwww. Lovely. As is this:

‘I only have…one chair in my living room.’


‘So what? You can sit in my lap…or I’ll sit in yours.’


And "frankly, the whole living in sin thing is kind of hot" sounds just So Jim. Perfect.


Wonderful last line. Well done, as always, Colette. Thank you for sharing this.

Author's Response:

NEJ! As always, you tuned right in to a couple of my personal favorite lines. And really, could I possibly have been thinking such a thing when I mentioned living in Jim's pocket? Moi? You know how innocent I am.

I agree - I think Jim was always painfully aware of the situation, but it was a force bigger than he was...hence his current defense system (you know, the one with the really bad make-over?) Anyway, this was just a light snack, but so happy you dropped by to share it. Thanks, you!

This made my little heart a thousand pounds lighter.  This is pure fluffy goodness, and yet they remained them, bantering and liking to give each other a bit of a hard time.

‘Where am I going to go?’ Jim would ask reassuringly, whenever she’d confide her insecurities.


‘Oh, I dunno…. Connecticut? Australia?’


‘Not unless the wedding to Roy is back on,’ he’d smirk. ‘Anyway, how could I leave Dwight? It might kill him to lose me again.’



Author's Response: Happy I could lighten your mood, MA. I know I needed it after BfV...had to make sure Jim ended up living with the right person, after all! And seriously, how could Jim ever leave Dwight again? Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!

Aww. This is sweet and sassy and salty, to boot. I love how you have them together and yet not perfect, not just yet.

Favorite line?

They both had standard doubles, hardly big enough for two. Especially when one of them was Jim-size.

Author's Response: Sweet and sassy and salty. Great description for this fluffball. Yeah, even though I obviously wanted to show them happy together, it wouldn't be perfect immediately, would it? Glad you like 'Jim-size' - kind of gave me a laugh too. Thanks much!

Contented sigh.  This is just perfect; I swear, I have the giddiest feeling right now.  As well as you do angst, you do the happy stuff every bit as wonderfully.  I love the way you capture snapshots of the simpler moments in a new relationship -- her calling him to come over in the middle of the night had me grinning from ear-to-ear.  And the whole thing is just so very real - actually reminds me of my early days with Mr. Girl7 (been there with the dragging clothes back and forth!). 

Also - and this is a stupid thing, I'm sure, for me to be all tickled about - but I love it that she holds the fact that she cried on Dwight's shoulder over Jim's head! 

Now, if only you could slip this little gem to Greg Daniels & get him to make it happen on screen....

Excellent work, as usual!

Author's Response:

Glad you liked it girl7. I like that - 'snapshots' of simple moments. I think I like imagining them that way, as opposed to in big melodramatic situations, because that's where that thing they have lives, really comes out. Sort of a romance in everyday moments. So, I'm really glad if this felt real to you..means alot.  

Anyway, this one was no biggie, just a little defense against the idea of Jim 'living together two blocks apart' with Not!Pam. And making Pam (and me!) so sad. Thanks for your always wonderful take on things!

This is so wonderful. You are a genius at happy Jim and Pam. Closing the time warp and constructing obstacle courses and sexy mornings and space expanding. Love. Also, this line cracked me up and put a naughty image in my head: ‘You, me...and Mark,' she added skeptically, referring to a recent suggestion he'd made. I can only assume it was intentional.

Author's Response: Definitely intentional...Jim's reply about the old TV show Three's Company was a subtle smutty reference (I actually originally had something much more obvious there, but toned it down, since it wasn't that kind of story.) Anyway, I've got to make them happy sometimes, right? Lord knows I've written them miserable enough. Thanks, as always for being such a great reviewer.
