One of my pet peeve’s in jamfic is how every woman Pam encounters seems to be taller and prettier than her with bright blue eyes and long blonde hair. From the random woman wandering into the office looking for Jim to the waitress on their first date…

But here we have Lily, a curvy redhead about Pams height. And Stacy, a sweet brunette a little on the chubby side with a wicked sense of humor.

Very realistic and VERY refreshing.

Summary: Yet another option for post-Cocktails...but this time, with a twist.  An antidote to all the Passive! Pam fic...here we see a little of her sassier side....

If ever the convo in chapter one were to have happened this is exactly how it would have gone. This is Pam 100%. This story has earned a spot in my favorites because the first chapter is so exceptional. And this third chapter is so emotional and intense that I found myself holding my breath. I’m so extremely saddened to never know what was to come next.

Summary: The Supreme Being gives his take on the JimPam relationship and other Officeites. I think he likes JAM. Spoilers through The Job.  I know this looks like a WIP but it really is a bunch of epidode related vignettes.

This is incredible! I'd love to read Gods thoughts on S9. Jim and pams guardian angel had moved on and some of that free will failed them, all ended well thankfully but I wonder how much God intervened.

"Love never fails."

The 1st Corinthians's in this story means so much more now, doesn't it?
There is so much greatness in this story but that part and the meaning of the yogurt lid are the two that stand out the most for me.

Summary:

“God, Jim. There’s been an…there was an accident and…Roy came back and he got upset and…God, he shot Della Jim, Roy shot her.” And suddenly Jim’s not even breathing.

This one is always fun to read because it’s so different, but when I get to the end I can’t help but create another little epilogue for myself.
I’m thinking they may have created another lil oops... After four yrs I doubt she was on the pill. So two for two!
6wks later: um jim... It's time we clear all of your stuff out of your room. It seems we will need that room for something else. She hands him a lil white stick. And of course he freaks out, huge grin twirling pam in the air excitement. He's especially excited that he will get to be there for everything this time. Awww... happy Jam :D

I am so excited for this!! I loved this chapter and after 7 years you've definitely still got it!!

I'll be sure to check you out on ff.net I can't say for certain because I'm not registered for the mtt forum but I think this site goes down in July without enough donations. :'((

Date: July 06, 2015 Title: Chapter 12: ...And So Little Time

Awww.... That was excellent! I absolutely love the way you used Jims canon doodle and brought in another doodle la pams "famous" note. So great.

This has another 10 chapters or so left right?? Yeah :)

Author's Response:

Is there a Jim doodle in the show? I thought maybe there was but couldn't remember when it showed up?

I don't know about 10 chapters, but I'd say at least 2. Better start working on it!

Reviewer: BecauseOfYou Signed
Date: June 30, 2015 Title: Chapter 11: So Many Places...

I know you've been editing this a bit so I just reread from the beginning and I must say it is much more difficult for me to read Jim being "happy" and engaged to someone than to read Pam with someone other than Jim. My heart has a softer spot for Pam for some reason. Can't stand her heart in pain.
~
I really like the booze cruise addition and how you flipped it to fit your story. The flashback in Jims POV really helps to fill in his side of things a bit. I'd kinda like to see a flashback from season 2 Christmas episode.
~
And I love that you took the more difficult route and had Lisa call off the wedding rather than Jim, adds a bit more depth to the story. I kept thinking how she never mentioned Pam as a reason, and then in ch 10 when she did, it was totally different than I expected, which is great. I love when I foreshadow a story and it turns out I was wrong.
~
Which brings me to Brian >:/ ~ that's all I'm gonna say about that!

Ok. One thing about that. I don't think pams the type to do what Jim on the show did. I can see her trying to date a bit to move on but I can't picture her hiding behind a relationship and using the person like Jim did with Karen.
~
I love that Karen works at corporate and she and Pam can become friends. I think grace and Karen can really help her come out of her shell a bit.
~
Laughed so hard at Pam looking up to the camera with a confused face over "Dwight" and "cute" used together, awesome!
~
The shopping was great headway, they are still holding back, but making progress all the same. They just need to get out of their own heads!
Jim! Of course she doesn't know, how could she know?!? You need to tell her! (I'm getting worked up, this is that good!)
Make 'em go out to the bar after the meetings to get smashed! That'll fix everything! :D
~
Curses for the cliffhanger!

Author's Response:

Thanks for re-reading, I think this fic is finally reading as a more complete story with the additional flashbacks. Glad you liked the Booze Cruise scene, I wasn't planning on a Christmas Party scene but it may creep in there.

I love writing Pam and Karen as friends, since I always felt they would have been really good friends (if it weren't for that pesky paper salesman!)

Working on the next chapter now, I hope to get it up soon!

Reviewer: BecauseOfYou Signed
Date: August 30, 2016 Title: Chapter 17: Sweeps Around You Like the Sea

On the show Pam surely had her insecurities, but I think in this situation, regarding Jim, she would even more so. I love that you wrote about her fear of Jim deciding she wasn't worth the hassle. But in contrast you showed him having this almost uncontrollable excitement about her. I'm hoping you build on this a bit. Hmmm... Maybe it will come to play in that little bit of info you gave me??? This chapter was adorably sweet and a joy to read :)

Reviewer: BecauseOfYou Signed
Date: April 10, 2017 Title: Chapter 18: You dare to see the mystery

10 years! And two years since you revived it. Not only is it amazing that you're still chugging away on this but it keeps getting better with each chapter you've added.

I did not remember making a request, at all, for a Christmas reversal, I had to go back and look at reviews from two years ago, LOL. I am very glad I did because you wrote it so great, and you were able to go back to that DM quagmire scene and expand on it. I would love to see how that picture looks, it sounds awesome.

I really like that you're not writing the role reversal as just switching Jim and Pam's place like Opposite Day, ya know. You're still keeping them in canon with certain things, like she was still the drunk one at the Dundies instead of Jim. But on the certain things where it's necessary, like the Christmas gift and card, you still manage to make it more unique to the individual character. You didn't have pam just give Jim some sort of fancy box with a bunch of inside jokes in it. You instead created an inside joke for this version of Jim and Pam that made much more sense for the gift.

I know she wasn't in this chapter, but after rereading the whole thing last night I'm still so happy with the way you've written Karen and given her a friendship with Pam, it's very refreshing.

The brief appearance by Kevin and all his snickering cracked me up :D

The cliffhanger… My mind instantly went to two different scenarios and they both actually leave me pretty excited for the next chapter. I know I will enjoy reading either situation I've come up with and I'm excited to see if I was right. Which means you're going to have to leave me unspoiled, I hope I can hold out till the next chapter!

Well that's a rambling review, I stayed up way too late reading this and thought it be better if I reviewed in the morning but, I'm so tired that it's probably not any better having waited.

Oh well, at least you know I liked it :D

Date: March 02, 2018 Title: Chapter 20: You're floating on a cloud that's beautiful and then

I have been waiting for this chapter forever! :D Lisa finally finds out about Pam and lucky Jim...no broken glass.

I really loved his parting line to Lisa about hesitating with her and how it’s really quite a contrast to his relationship with pam. It’s been nice, as the story has progressed, to occasionally have more revealed about Jim and Lisa because in the beginning they seem like a good couple. And maybe they were ok enough but lucky for him he doesn’t have to settle for that anymore.

Summary:

Michael's Farewell Party turns into an unexpected night for Jim and Pam.

It seems, from the footnotes of this last ch posted that there was maybe only one ch left.
So I realize that you, the author, will probably never see this because it's been years and years but I have to comment because...

This fic is beyond amazing. Since the office ended I have been reading TO fanfic, all of it. (MTT & FF.net anyway) and I would easily put this in my top five of all the fanfic. It's so smart and witty. Just really well done. I was blown away at one of the author notes that said you weren't a writer normally because, well, I beg to differ.

What I wouldn’t give for you to finish this. Or even an outline of how the rest was supposed to end up. Amazing work, so unfortunate it sits unfinished.

This piece leaves me feeling so conflicted about Jim, much the same as S3. I simultaneously feel a strong desire to hug him, smack him upside the head, and knee him in the balls. I especially feel like he could use a good knee-ing around the middle.

I especially loved these lines...

"There were some phrases, and some people, who would just not leave his subconscious alone. No matter how much he ignored them during the day."

“Look, if this is about Pam…” the name fell from her lips with a quiet kind of disdain. He thought she said it out loud this time because she was tired of the name being too sacred to utter in his presence.

You are definitely one of my favorite authors here, I'm so thankful that your stories are still here!
