Story Notes:

The "Sexual Harassment" deleted scenes made me wonder what kind of IM conversations Jim and Pam had/have. And since I'm starting this with just over 50 days before Season 4 starts, and there's just over 50 episodes, I thought it would be a fun "countdown" kind of thing (it's also a good thing to work on when I'm stuck on other stories).

The messenger I'm thinking of as I write this is AIM v5.x, so when you see emoticons in the text, think of these .

ETA: EiE has gone visual! Check out MTT's tumblr for visualizations of these chats complete with actual emoticons!

1. Before The Cameras by NobleLandMermaid [Reviews - 18] 5 (245 words)

About the dates: while I want to stay true to the show, I'm taking creative liberties and pretending Season 1 took place right before Season 2, so the Documentary Crew arrived in Summer '05 rather than Spring.

Oh, and sorry for my remarkably uncreative IM usernames
