That was absolutely perfect! I could completely see it and you captured both Jim and Jon - great job!

Summary: Past Featured Story

MEMBER'S CHOICE - "Here’s the thing Jim, sometimes being in love means doing things you don’t want to do for the other person. For you, right now, it means just being her friend. And I think you’re selling yourself short, you are strong enough to do this."

Jim gets some much needed advice about Pam and a little push in the right direction from Mark's girlfriend Jane. Spoilers through the Negotiation.

Aw, I loved the way you wrapped this up! Great job!

Author's Response: Sorry to take so long to respond....I'm usually better about that.  Thanks for the review Jenn....and I'm really glad you enjoyed the ending.   Thanks for sticking with me until the end. 

Summary: Past Featured Story

"It seems odd, in the ironic, slap-in-the-face kind of way that since her incident, it’s been easier to let him go."

Something bad happens to Pam. Very Dark.

OMIGOSH! I'm almost crying over here. That was such a Jim thing to do and I love it. The key and the directions? Just brilliant. I'm glad you decided to continue this.

I was just wondering if this might be updated again. I really liked this chapter and I'm interested to see what happens next.

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it thank you.  If you're wondering, I can actually read your mind, Jenn.  And I updated it. For you.  JK, but I'm happy to hear from you.

Reviewer: JennInTheCity Signed 9
Date: January 27, 2008 Title: Chapter 9: Worry

This was a really great chapter! On one hand I get frustrated that there's still so much distance, second guessing and whatever because I want fluffy puppies and babies and cooking dinner on the second floor terrace. But then on the other hand, I think it's great because you aren't using the rape as a catalyst to get them together, but really showing that it IS a long, awful process with second-guessing, frustration, worry and not a lot of touching, talking and puppies. So really keep it up, you are doing well!

Summary:

Begun out of hiatus frustration as an exploration of what we might miss of Jim and Pam's newfound romance, this has grown into something unique and cool, a multi-authored exercise in creativity and obsession.

By the way, we talk about it here if you're interested in saying hi.

Summary: Past Featured Story

A year or two before the cameras arrived, Michael takes the staff to the Poconos for a camaraderie event.  Much unresolved sexual tension and angst ensues (uh, between Jim & Pam, not the entire staff).

Wow - that was really powerful! I was so frustrated by Pam for so long, but I'm so happy she is finally being honest with herself - even if she had to say that she loves Jim for the first time to Roy. I can't wait to see where this goes next!

Author's Response: Yeah, I'm hoping I can redeem Pam in the coming chapters. :o) Thanks so much for reviewing!

Amazing! I really loved that Jim got a swing in before Darryl broke up the fight. I really can't wait to see Pam's arrival at Jim's and what happens next!

Author's Response: Ha - yes, it was really important to me that he get in at least one good swing. :o)  Thanks so much for reviewing!

Oh, Pam. So close to what really needed to be said.

I loved the tension. I love the crying and the heartbreaking angst. You are so good at this. I wish Pam had said more, but I get why she didn't. Just amazing work.

Author's Response:

Gah - thank you!  Let me tell you (as if this is a newsflash): I absolutely love writing the angst, and I do not know why (totally hate drama in my "real" life, hee).  But I worried that this might be over the top, always worry that it's over the top when Pam cries.

I remember reading a comment from when I first started writing and posting Office fanfic (over a year ago), and the person (it was a message board type thing, not a review) was criticizing what I'd written, saying that Pam is not a crier.  Even though I'd beg to differ -- the pilot, "Boys and Girls," "Back From Vacation," and "The Job" (granted, some of those happened after the criticism) - I still pause every time I write a weepy Pam scene.  

So it's nice to hear you say you enjoyed it!  (A long rambling way to saying that...) :o)

Thanks for reviewing!

I'm sad to see the end of this coming, but I'm excited to see Jim and Pam actually coming back to each other, better and together. Great job as usual.

Author's Response:

Ha - you think you're sad!  I was sitting here earlier thinking, oh now...what am I going to do this weekend?  LOL...such a dork, I know. 

In any case, thanks so much for your review (well, all your reviews, actually!) :o)

Author's Response: Heh - I second that emotion.  :o) Thanks for reviewing!

I love Jim messing with Ryan - too funny! Great job with David Wallace wanting the both of them to come to NYC - sounds great to me ;)

Author's Response: Yeah, I think it would be almost too hard for Jim not to mess with Ryan in this scenario. It\'s how Jim treats those that annoy or bother him. \r\n\r\nWe will find out in soon to come epilogue where Jim decides his future lies...

I really like the way you capture Ryan's personality and also the dynamic between Ryan and Jim. Continued wonderful work!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. It\'s been really fun and interesting trying to capture this dynamic, which I think is one of the more interesting ones on the show.

Aw, that was really nice. I feel like there could be more, but I like where it ended too.

Author's Response: Thanks! I actually think there will be one more chapter, so we can see Jim\'s take one more time plus an epilogue.

I really like this. I know the obvious choice is go straight into phone sex, but I kinda like that they are just talking to each other and getting to know each other again.

Author's Response: Thank you!  I was concerned that the pace of the dialogue was a shade self-indulgent; I'd hoped that it would just be easy and unforced.  I'm glad you liked it!

Summary:

Terrorists invade Dunder Mifflin. Jim and Pam are the only hope for their officemates to get out alive. Close quarters in an airduct and looking death in the face give Jim and Pam the kick in the pants they need to get get together. Takes place after "Beach Games" and before "The Job". A/U.

Nice to see this one updated after a break.

Author's Response: Thank you, it feels good to update it. I haven't been able to do any writing lately, and so that has caused breaks in all my WIPs. And of course, when I do write its super-slowly. I have no idea how some of the great authors on this site can update so quickly, its pretty amazing. Thank you very much for the review JennInTheCity.

Summary: Past Featured Story

Jim blogs on Livejournal...This will be an ongoing story, for as long as I have the patience and inspiration to sustain it.

To try make it more of an interactive experience, any and all comments will be responded to in character as if it is in fact, Jim's Livejournal (from the 8th entry on.)
