Summary:

This is essentially my take on the "unseen" challenge. I've written a couple of these, and I originally thought I'd do one for every episode, but I'm thinking that's too ambitious for me -- especially when someone else has already done it so perfectly. But for what it's worth....

I know this is an older story and you probably don't check reviews anymore, but your descriptions here are just beautiful. It reminded me of the first time I read an Anne Rice novel- I had those same feelings. Except for the painting stuff- I can't art so it just made me want to visit new Orleans rally, really badly.

Author's Response:

Thanks, I keep flirting with doing another set of vignettes leading up to The Job (maybe even to branch wars) but it's in with all my other fic ideas right now. I'm looking forward to reading your own Karen fic!

A glimpse into the instant messaging history of Jim and Pam. Written with the intention of expanding on what we see on the show, as well as to tie up some loose ends. There will be a conversation for each episode through Season 3.

No, you're right. Dwight is definitely like Napoleon. I'm sure he has sweet bowstaff skills.

Summary: Michael accuses Dwight of borrowing one of his favorite DVD's two years ago... and not returning it. Unable to prove himself innocent, Dwight gets his hands on the rough footage from that day and makes everyone watch to find the real culprit. But when a terrible secret Jim has kept from Pam comes to light, can the two new lovers survive?

God. This is so good. I mean, I'm not even talking fan fiction good. This is better than most of the books I've read and I have a degree in English lit. I'm more on love with this Pam and Jim than the Pam and Jim on the show right now. I'm sure you're not around here much anymore but I really hope you're still writing. You have such a talent.

This is so good. Stories set in seasons 1 & 2 always make me wish I could hug Jim and tell him they'll get there eventually.

Author's Response: Thank you! I really appreciate your comment! And I hear you, although I really like watching those seasons and reading fics from that time because...well, we've all been there. We've all felt that sting, that kind of longing, and there's something about connecting with those pieces of ourselves that is really powerful. Thanks again for your comment. Glad you enjoyed this! :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I really appreciate your comment! I have such a soft spot for the Dwight and Pam friendship, too. :) I honestly didn't think this fic would go over so well, since one half of Jim/Pam was technically absent, but I'm so glad to see that people (including your lovely self) have enjoyed it! I can't lie--it was really fun writing Dwight. Hee.

I understand focusing on season 9 for this especially with Jim being so OOC but I just don't see much chemistry between Ryan and Pam. They feel like siblings who barely tolerate each other. But that's just my opinion.

Author's Response: What is OOC? I'm a bit confused. How did I focus on Season? Didn't mean to.I probably need to expand all of my stories, not just this one. I think I get so focused on finishing, I start to rush. My next story( yet to be published) Pam At Pratt is a step in the right direction, I think. Thanks, you saw things (that I also saw), that may make me a better writer, not just an idea man. I value your input! More response to Candi: Since Jim is asleep,not sure how to build the chemistry. Can you give me some examples of how they seem like siblings. I appreciate your comments.

Reviewer: Candi Signed
Date: April 27, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I just figured this was set sometime in season 9 because that's when Jim wanted Pam to move to Philly. I meant I didn't see chemistry between Pam and Ryan over the course of the show. They always seem to fight like brother and sister. I guess maybe if you touched on that and said Pam and Ryan bickered because they were hiding a secret attraction, that might make it work? If you wanted to expand on it. Totally just suggestions.

Author's Response:

thanks.Well thought  out and expressed.
