Bio:

I'm a receptionist in like with an office supply delivery guy, so... that's something.

I'm also a 37 year old former fanfic writer who only discovered The Office in Spring 2018 and is all set to come out of writing retirement for Jim and Pam. 

*edit 1/11/19 - now 38, officially un-retired from that whole fanfic writing thing, and a firm believer that Jim Halpert is the only office supply guy worth my time. What a year!

So, I hadn't come across this story before you updated last week, and I devoured the entire thing in one sitting and it... ugh, it's SO good. Every chapter was just so beautifully written and I loved the little ways you changed some of our best Jam moments, and you got rid of Karen, and this was just really a delight to read. I'm so glad you finished it!

Oh, this was lovely! I think my favorite part of this chapter was around the middle, beginning when Pam misunderstood his "I can't do this" and continuing through to the end of that scene. The dialogue was spot on and in character and that line about wanting to wear his last name on her shirt? Good stuff!

Date: May 28, 2018 Title: Chapter 36: Epilogue: Awake

Whew! Now that I've gone back and reread this a second time, I think I've finally soaked in all of the awesomeness. Because there was a lot of awesome in this story.

My favorite part of the last chapter was Pam's declaration of wanting to wearing Jim's name. My favorite part of this chapter was the progression of what that actually meant through the years and how it just got better with time.

This chapter wrapped up the entire story so perfectly, but it's also a lovely standalone. You know, like "Second Story!" and well, it made me feel all of the feelings and you're just a really great writer. :)

Summary:

Just as quickly as life can give you everything you've ever wanted, it can take it away on a dime. When tragedy strikes, will Jim and Pam's love be able to stand the tests?

Set during the summer between S2/S3. 

For those of you who watched Lost or Once Upon a Time, the theme of flashbacks will be heavily played with in this one :)

Um, I want to do crossword puzzles with Jim now, so thanks for that image.

I love this story a lot. You really outdid yourself in this chapter, with using the colors to describe Pam's bruises, having "that's what she said" be one of her first memories, and the golf pencil... It's a lot of goodness crammed into one chapter and I need more soon!

I don’t know what’s more heartbreaking: Jim’s breakdown to Larisa or Jim helping Pam plan a wedding she thinks is to another guy.

Today’s theme: Roy can go kick rocks.

The flash cards! I’m dead. That was so adorable and I loved all of it. How many times has Stanley cheated? We truly do not know.

Who knew Jim could be so arts and crafty? I don’t hate it. I don’t hate it at all.

Author's Response:

*New idea: Roy kicks rocks in next chapter*... ;)

Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing this one for sure. 

Reviewer: Coley Signed 1
Date: June 24, 2018 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10

Roy kicked rocks!

I don’t like this whole ‘Roy suddenly has a conscience and is going to behave’ nonsense but I’m going along with it because I trust you.

That being said, come on Pam’s memories - they’re so close! Poor Jim. And poor Penny - I keep waiting and hoping she gets fed up and spills the beans but it’s fine, I’m enjoying the teasing and the familiarity and come on Pam... look how your family is around Jim... don’t fall for Roy’s sudden appearance. Daisies don’t make up for that tacky apron.

Lol, I really do love this story!

Author's Response:

He did! :)

He has a conscience for a specific reason, just hold on, lol. Thanks, darlin'!

Way to go, Roy. Ugh.

Oh dear, poor Pam! And just when she was starting to finally get somewhere remembering things on her own too.

Things I loved: the air five and the video, of course. Everyone behaved exactly as we’d expect them to in that video.

Jimbo’s gonna have some explaining to do, isn’t he?

Author's Response:

Why do I have, "Oh Lucyyyyyy you've got some 'splainin' to do?" going through my head now? 

But yeah, lots of explaining and angst coming our way. But really, can you spell "Jam" without "angst" in the middle? 

Reviewer: Coley Signed
Date: October 03, 2018 Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 12

*gasp* How dare you!

I didn't think Jim could get much better but then you put him in a waiting room with the cutest little girl ever and Hannah Montana and he's... well, he's even more dreamy.

Now Pam just needs to see how dreamy he is.

Reviewer: Coley Signed
Date: October 03, 2018 Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13

No. No, no, no, I refuse to feel bad for Roy here. Except maybe I do. A teensy tiny bit. But not enough to change anything. He's still dumb and I don't like him.

You know who I do like though? Penny. Penny's a great sister and I love that she was there to be the voice of reason for Pam this chapter. I too, can be persuaded to do just about anything for a blueberry muffin, so well played, Penny.

She cant let go of the t-shirt. Let him in, Pam!

Cece, you brilliant, adorable, little angel! This chapter is so great.

I love the flashbacks you've come up with in this story - the little sprinkles of their progressing relationship. It makes the current time even more heartbreaking. Not to state the obvious or anything, but it'd really be swell if Pam got her memory back soon.

But honestly, as long as you keep piecing them back together the way you started to in this chapter, I'm okay with waiting too.

Reviewer: Coley Signed
Date: January 06, 2019 Title: Chapter 15: Chapter 15

Aw Dwight, ya old softy.

I love that out of all of the things Pam could start remembering, its crabs and the NBA that break through to her. It's so great.

But also, hi there mysterious nicknames and slightly flirty text messages.

I have no idea where this is going... I mean, I do as in big picture, but I have no idea what the next memories or interactions are going to be, and I'm okay with waiting to see.

Holy... what a beautiful and heartbreaking chapter! You write both characters so well but I especially love your insight into Jim.

Can we all just hug crying Jim?

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I would absolutely LOVE to hug crying Jim—wouldn’t we all? If only.

Reviewer: Coley Signed 1
Date: June 19, 2018 Title: Chapter 16: Birthday

Oh, yay for Penny! I love the sister dynamic here. Pam’s waterfall of emotions from sad to angry to inspired seems completely in character and makes total sense. Who hasn’t had an epiphany in the middle of a dance floor, right? ;)

And yeah. Still wanting to hug Jim. I can’t wait to read more!

Author's Response: Right? All my life altering realizations have happened while out on the dance floor. Well maybe not all, but at least one or two. Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Reviewer: Coley Signed
Date: July 05, 2018 Title: Chapter 17: First Day

This was another great chapter! Jim's need to be busy rang really true and I loved his trying to make friends in an almost hostile office with minimal results. You're too good for them, Jim.

Back off, Karen. Back off now.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! And yeah, Karen, if we could just make her go away that’d be great. Ugh. But conflict makes for a good story and a happy ending, so she has to stay around for a while. Unfortunately.

Slow by agian18 Rated: MA [Reviews - 70] 74 New!
Summary: Pam said she wanted to take things slow. So this is how it all goes down (in some cases, quite literally). The aforementioned, multi-chapter, essentially plotless smut-fest that I've been promising. Essentially smut for smut's sake, since we really saw next to nothing on air. Enjoy ;)

You're getting a review for each chapter of this one, so buckle up.

"He had definitely kept his tongue to himself the last time. As he gently sucks yours into his mouth, the sensations have you thinking that, if he hadn’t, you probably wouldn’t have said I can’t." That's my favorite line in this chapter - it's pretty much perfect.

I always love the stories where they decide to take it slow and it backfires. Can't wait to see who wears who down first!

Reviewer: Coley Signed
Date: June 12, 2018 Title: Chapter 2: The One Where The Movie Wasn't Exciting Enough

There's a line in this one, where Pam is proud of Jim for taking initiative that just kills me. Pam's character throughout this is delightful.

This is me petitioning you to write a "Jim Halpert's Greatest Hits as a Boyfriend" fic. You know, in your spare time.

Because, as this chapter proves...he's a *really* great boyfriend.

JIMOTHY! Back alley/parking lot of a bar sexy times is always a gold star from me. Well done!

I also enjoyed the line about nose powder, the girls (and Ryan). Good one.

Author's Response: Ha! Thanks, I for sure did that on purpose. The powder line anyway. Jim in a back alley kind of happened on its own... oops

Date: June 12, 2018 Title: Chapter 5: The One With Drunk Handsy Beesly

Well, Drunk Handsy Pam is a good time, isn't she? And here I was scandalized by Jim in the last chapter... Pam comes along and takes it up a notch.

I like it. I like it a lot.

Author's Response: Drunk Handsy Pam has a bit of a problem with keeping her hands to herself, but I don’t thjnk jim will mind too much, especially in later chapters... ;)

Reviewer: Coley Signed 1
Date: June 18, 2018 Title: Chapter 6: The One With Jim's Tongue

So a thing I've noticed in this fandom is that a lot of people like to make Pam shy and unsure when it comes to this particular activity. What I love most about this chapter is that you went the opposite route. Not only is Pam all for it, but she's barely asking as she's more demanding it. And enthusiastically reciprocating.

Get it, girl. Get it all over that office next time. (Or eventually.)

“Maybe candles are involved. Maybe they aren’t.” You’re hilarious. Really.

I love the back and forth, with each of them managing to get the upper hand... so to speak. Sexy times aside, I absolutely love the banter in this chapter.

James Duncan, indeed.

Author's Response:

I two-hundred-percent did that candle thing for you guys ;)

Also, full names are my weakness. James Duncan will more than likely make a reappearance.

AGIAN MARIE! (I too, like using full names and Marie is a solid middle name for scolding anyone, right?)

I’m not scolding you though. I’m too impressed. How did you manage to write a chapter that was so damn sweet and adorable but at the same time, completely inappropriate in the best of ways? That’s talent.

I was completely entertained by this chapter, especially Jim’s housing and lingerie reviews. And who doesn’t love a solid Friends reference?

Author's Response:

Oddly enough, you guessed my actual middle name on the first try. Oops~

I can’t even answer that question. This entire chapter just kind of manifested into a big ball of sexual fluff that left me very red faced, so I’m glad it worked 😂

Jim’s little reviews were my favorite part to write! And I totally did the Friends thing on purpose. Glad you caught it 😉

Thank ya thank ya!

Well, this whole 'taking things slow' thing they've got going on has gotten them into quite the sticky situation.

9 minutes. *giggles*

Listen, I think we can all agree that Taco Bell is a magical place where wonderful things can happen. And the image of Jim folded into the backseat of a Saab is pretty dang magical.

Add Jim's "I'll wait as long as you need me to" speech to the top of his Greatest Hits as a Boyfriend list because everything he said here is swoon-worthy.

Author's Response:

I was going to make it 7 but figured I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. 

But yeah. Something about making their first time all magical and sh*t didn't seem right. I had to throw in a curveball. 

I think we just need to keep a running tab of "Jim Halpert's Greatest Hits as a Boyfriend," honestly.

Taco Bell is magical under the right circumstances. Like when cheese is involved.

Date: October 11, 2018 Title: Chapter 13: The One with the Honeymoon Stage Pt. 2

God, could they be any cuter?

Poor Pam, she must have been super exhausted to fall asleep on Jim that second time, but I'd say they definitely more than made up for it the next day.

As great as the sexy fun times were, the best parts of this chapter were Jim realizing how set in their relationship they were - the taking care of her comforter and getting her settled for sleep while she was already sleeping. He's the best.

Who am I kidding? They're the best. Especially your version of them.
