I just found this story, and just read it the whole way through and I love every single word you've written. I know you're probably long gone from the site, but I just had to let you know this is wonderful, in case you'll see it. This last chapter especially is wonderful and left me with a tear in my eye.

Summary: Jim must deal with a family crisis.  Pam helps him to get through it.

Oh man-- so I'm sitting here getting my pedicure and I decide to re read some chapters of this story because I LOVE this story, and then! I apparently missed this last chapter!! I can't figure our how exactly I didn't see this! I'll start to worry when I put the milk away uncapped. Anyhoos I love how Larissa just comes to the natural conclusion that Pam loves her son. Can't wait till he becomes aware of that too! Hope you're close to posting the next chapter and that your questions were answered. :)

Author's Response: I think this is the second review I've received from you during one of your pedicures. You know how to live it up! You probably just missed this one because I posted it within a week of the one before it ... I'll bet you thought it was the chapter you'd already read. In any case, I'm working on the next chapter. Mr. Blood has a business trip for a few days this week, so maybe I'll make some progress...

AH! the moment I've been waiting for (well, one of ;)) this was really just, superb. I really can't wait to read more. I can see why you didn't just have them hop into the sheets right here, it's not the right time for that. Love it, obviously you know this by now. I have every confidence you can write that sort of stuff, go for it! And congrats on 700 reviews! (701 now once I hit submit)

Author's Response: Thanks, Deedldee!  I'm so glad you enjoyed the chapter.  And, holy cow - over 700 reviews!  I never in a MILLION years would have foreseen this when I started this story ... back when the dinosaurs roamed.

I have to tell you how much I love this story. One of my absolute favorites. Can't wait for more updates!

Author's Response: Thank you!  I hope to have the next chapter up within a week.

Wow! I'm totally late for this party! Busy couple of days including today, but wanted to pop in really quickly and read this chapter while I have 10 minutes to spare before dinner/movie date night. Anyways... I have to tell you how incredibly amazing it is that you contacted a respiratory therapist for this chapter. That is ENORMOUS commitment to this wonderful story. The description of Jim's dad pulling out the tubes was so vivid and descriptive, I could literally see it in my head! I love the last part, where they apologize to one another. I also really really love how Jim's thoughts on how to speak to the hospital staff are all 'I remember Pam saying...' It speaks volumes of how much her being there has helped him get through this. I'm sorry this review is so short, but I have to run! I really can't wait for the upcoming chapters! Very very well done VB!! (this story needs a ribbon -just saying.)

Author's Response: Hi, Deedles! Thanks for leaving such a detailed review! It means an awful lot to us authors when people take a few minutes to leave feedback like this. I have draft TWO of the next chapter out to the betas. I hope to post it by Thursday or Friday. So this one shouldn't be a long wait. Thanks again!

Hi there. I'm coming out of hiding specifically to tell you how wonderful these two chapters are. I absolutely adore Pam talking to him as he pretends to sleep, and I can't wait to see what you have for us in the next chapter. This is wonderful and I'm really happy that you're going to complete this story. I can't say enough about how much I adore what you've written here in each and every chapter. I'll have to come back out of hiding soon to look for an update. Keep going! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for coming out of hiding, Deedldee! I'm so glad you're enjoying the story. I'm trying to frame out the next chap now.

I've never read this before now, it showed up on the "story of the moment" portion, and I have to tell you that this is just excellent. Superb. I got a little teary at their confessions in this last chapter. Adding to favorites right now. You write with such depth, I get so caught up in all of your stories. This one was perfect!

Summary: Jim wants to stop Pam's engagement to Roy, but is forced to watch it all play out because of an obligation to Roy. How far will he let it go though?

Okay I know you probably didn't intend for this to happen but I'm wiping away tears from my face right now. This was so beautiful, the image at the end is just so wonderful. I love that Jim and Roy get along now and the little family that Jim has now. And, I absolutely can't tell you how lovely it is that you kept the baby's name as Cecelia. I'm excited to read what you come up with next! :-) Congratulations on this, you should be proud, this is wonderful.

Author's Response: I didn't intend for anyone to cry, but is it weird that I'm touched that you did. Thank you so much for all the lovely reviews you left throughout the story!

Date: February 22, 2011 Title: Chapter 18: We are real

Omigosh, I can't believe this is over soon! But this chapter is just so simple and sweet and very them. I love the proposal, love that she wants to elope, love that she's so excited for it. The apology was so cute, so very Pam, and I really love how they mock one another - it's just so loving. I wouldn't be opposed to you continuing this well into the future, though I do know that when you're at the end of the story it's best to bow it up properly. I'm sad to see this one go though. You did some wonderful writing here. :)

Author's Response: Oh Deedldee, don't tempt me to keep writing this. I really could. So glad you liked this chapter.

Date: February 21, 2011 Title: Chapter 17: We're good... good.

Aw, poor Jim, always getting turned down when asking this girl to move in with him. I think she does need to be on her own first, and I'm glad you created that situation to show that she's not over reliant on men and can attempt to stand on her own.

I'm glad you're out of your funk! I've been in one for a long time now. Hoping I can crawl out of it. I feel your pain. Hope to read an update on this soon, and I'm so sad that it's nearing the end. Hope you have something new in the works once this is complete. :)

Author's Response: Deedldee, I would say nothing gets me out of a funk more than reading reviews! So thank you. I do have something new in the works ready to go once this is complete. Another AU, not as extreme. I hope you get through you funk soon! Love your stories.

Awwww they're just so cute! This is a fun chapter, I really enjoy the playfulness of these two. And I really love that you're posting chapters in rapid succession. It really keeps me in tune with the story. (two thumbs up and a gold star for you.)
Hopefully that's a coherent review. I'm up way too early for work.

Author's Response: Thanks Deedldee! Very coherent. Glad you enjoyed it.

Awwww!!! I loved this so much. Especially the end and also her talking to Roy again I like that he didn't yell at her. Can't wait for more.

Author's Response: Glad you liked the chapter. I was afraid it would be too cutesy.

Wow this chapter is awesome. I wish I had something more constructive to say lol they're so sweet and just adorable here. Love the reference to the sandra bullock movie too! I hope there's more on the way. I really love your writing :)

Author's Response: Haha, thank you! I was trying not to write too sex fiendish on either side. 28 days and 28 day later... I still get them confused sometimes.

Date: February 11, 2011 Title: Chapter 13: We should slow this down

Reposting my review, because the first one I wrote was mildly incoherent.

I patiently wait for the next chapter... Seriously, you've made me believe that Jim and Roy are brothers. I thoroughly adore the Jim and Pam relationship, it's sweet, funny and just so them. This is great!

Author's Response: Awesome! Thank you so much. I'm glad you like their relationship. I was nervous that my extreme AU would be too extreme with them as brothers. Also, sorry I didn't respond to your first review. I didn't realize that I wasn't receiving emails from mtt about reviews.

Roy and Jim are brothers!? I definitely haven't read this story before today, and I'm really mad at myself for not reading sooner! I'm so completely intrigued I was really bummed that there was no 'next' button after chapter 4. What I really like is that Pam is so open with her feelings for Jim, even if it's inner monologue. And she's in such a sticky situation, and I hope you continue to be inspired to write the rest of this very original and extremely interesting story. :)

Summary: Past Featured Story"It's always been Jim and Pam." What if it always was? What twists and turns do a lifelong friendship take? A story of Jim and Pam and love, in varying incarnations.

I can't believe I haven't been reading this story until today! It's truly awesome and I do hope you continue! I wanted to comment on every chapter, but I figure you didn't want 14 separate reviews from me so I'm combining it all into one word - awesome! Also, I did notice one thing that I wanted to tell you. I'm writing a story (first chapter is with my beta) and I noticed you touched on something in one chapter that is the main focus of my story (don't want to give everything away about my story just yet) and wanted to just tell you that, because I don't want you to think I'm taking any of your ideas! I was reading and I'm like hey... I should mention that. But back to the review, I really love this story, adding it to favorites, and can't for updates!

Author's Response: I'll take separate reviews if you want to give them; any feedback is helpful. And thanks for the heads up!

Oh man! Poor Jim! Update soon, now that I found this story, I can't wait to see where you take it. I really like that they were both thinking Angela and Dwight would be good together, I thought that was really funny! Really like it, for me, even though it's AU, I still feel like it's very much in character.

OMG!! The 'incident' part was just ... OMG! This is a great chapter! I really heard the jealousy in Pam's voice when she spoke about Jim loving Karen. You've captured their characters so perfectly here, it's such a great read! And ick, Toby. Good stuff, can't wait for more!

You made me cry! He's going to California! You're killing me! :( LOL Such a great chapter, I don't like to cry but seriously this was really good.

Author's Response: You're the second person to say Jim's going! I must have really messed up because I thought it was so clear that even though it's a tough decision and there's no win win win here, he decided that going to California wasn't right for him. So I went back and put in a few changes that will hopefully clarify things. I wouldn't have known it was confusing without the reviews, so thanks!

Date: February 01, 2010 Title: Chapter 18: It's not over till you both get your cookies

YES!! I smiled the whole way through! This was great! Your incorporation of Booze Cruise and Casino Night really hit it's mark here, and did not feel forced or out of place. Wonderfully written tension and awkwardness, perfect banter and just adorable. I love what you've done here in this story, and especially in this chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you! I love those two moments, and there's a great interview with John and Jenna where she said the thought in her head was "if you kiss me right now, i'm not going to stop you" so I thought that would work for Pam.

Date: February 05, 2010 Title: Chapter 1: Smelden and the Muffin

OK, I've read this latest chapter 3 times, and let me tell you, I just can't even coherently tell you how absolutely adorable the image you've created here is. I love love love "Money" and that you put one of my favorite squee worthy lines in your fic in such a great way is so cool! And OMG this: “If ‘Italian food’ comes home pregnant,” Larissa informed him, patting him on the upper arm, “I’ll cut your penis off.” = perfection. Hilarious perfection. I love this story & this chapter rocks! love. it.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad it works. I like incorporating little moments from the show but I always worry that it's too put upon or something. The Larissa/Jim relationship was a lot of fun, but not really something I thought much about. It just makes sense that she'd be very good humored like Jim, but if you read the first chapter, she was the only girl among four, then had two sons, so she's spent her whole life surrounded by men. I see Larissa as very no-nonsense, but she's got that emotional side of her too. I can see she and Jim being close, where I think Pete is probably closer to Mr. Halpert (both more alpha male, I imagine). I also think Larissa loves Pam like a daughter and while she wants her kids to be happy, there's a part of her that hated when Pam was dating Roy or Jim was dating Karen or anyone else. I think sometimes she says things like "I'll cut your penis off" to cover up moments that might become too emotional and border on maudlin.

Awww! So adorable! I love these two! I can't wait for another update and I hope you continue this story for a long time!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! Actually, the story is starting to wind down (4 chapters left), but I'm starting to think of ideas for other ones, so I hope you'll read other things I have to offer. And I wouldn't be opposed to the idea of a sequel to this one, if I could work out how to do it well.

Date: February 24, 2010 Title: Chapter 23: The strawberry pie incident

Really, there are no words, just one big dopey grin on my face. That was so incredibly adorable, the entire proposal's that weren't, strawberry pie, the actual proposal, all fabulous, I just love it! I'm planning on starting from chapter 1 again tomorrow when I'm at work, in preparation for the final chapters you have for us.

Author's Response: Thanks! I should have mentioned, the strawberry pie incident actually happened to me. Except as an added bonus, I'd also picked the strawberries myself. Fortunately the crust still tasted amazing. Unfortunately, dropping the innards of a pie on to the kitchen floor did motivate anyone to propose to me.
