Bio:

Author of the Month March 2020

I've been writing fanfiction for awhile now. Just recently discovered The Office and figured I'd try my hand at that as well.

At first I thought of having all my stories in the same universe, but then I had some AU ideas. So any stories that occur within a common universe will be in a given series.

"In Vino Veritas", in wine (or in this case beer and jello shots) truth. Good on Pam for not pressing anything further in a compromising situation. Lots of fun.

Well worth the wait considering everything you've got going on. Congrats by the way.

So this was just all sorts of sweet and adorable. You've really got them paired nicely in this story and it's a lot of fun to see. Good description that makes it easy to see the scene in the minds eye. The dialogue feels natural as well. Looking forward to more as always.

Very good. Meeting the parents is always one of those interesting moments in a relationship. I liked how you had them just basically a normal family. Nothing felt rushed or out of place. Just another step in the wonderful relationship you have these two walking down.

Good to see this story back. Looks like things are about to heat up for the holidays. Nice to see Jim and Pam so sweet with each other. Also I have this vision of this story Dwight coming into his room with all his stuff gift wrapped just like in the show. Probably where the idea came from in the first place.

Author's Response: Exactly! I try and pull little things from the show as much as possible to keep a familiar tone to it :)

Very cute. Kind of a filler chapter in that there's no real plot development. However it's very sweet and nice to get this Jim and Pam's backstory for why they'd pick Cece and Phillip.

Nice good at home fun here. Your Larissa is in fine form. Great to see them so comfortable with each other.

You're being a tease in the best possible way with this, you know that right? Very detailed here. Very easy to see in the minds eye all the goings on. Betsy knocking on the door, yes, frustrating for our two heroes, but funny for the reader. Glad to see this updated.

Author's Response: That’s the goal!! Haha but thank you, I’m so glad it all plays well and is easy to picture. Appreciate the feedback as always 😊

This was delightful. Great images of a warm Halpert household. Pam coloring with Vanessa was sweet as well. I'm so glad to see how you've been building their relationship in this story. They're wonderful with each other and it makes it fun to read. Onto the next chapter.

Reviewer: warrior4 Signed

I'm going to agree with Jim here. That was a while coming, (twss) but it was worth the wait. Considering how you've built up this relationship, when they finally get to this point, it's great to see them connecting like this. Great detail and very steamy.

Congrats on the kiddo. From one new(ish) parent to another, your in for one of the hardest things you'll ever love. I know things will get busy for you soon, but hopefully you'll be able to find some time to keep this going. Best of luck to you.

Summary:

 

TW: there is heavily implied domestic violence in this story.

I do not know I how to summarize this really. 

The writing style is a little bit different, but I felt it was the best way to convey what I was imagining. It switches POV quite often, so watch out for that. I also tried to avoid names until a particular moment, so that's part of it too.  

It's some post casino night angst, canon divergence, with a little bit of a cheesy ending.

Short but that's not necessarily a bad thing. As Shakespeare said, "brevity is the soul of wit." While you don't spell things out, there's enough said that one can fill in the gaps. Very nice for a very quick tale.

Author's Response: Thank you <3

So far not bad. Not sure where this is going other than maybe some of the stressed-married life we saw in season 9. Good writing style though.

Author's Response: Thank you! I was hoping to pique interest, so I’m glad i at least did that. :)

I like how this chapter is set up. Jim knows this job took a toll on their marriage once and he can tell it's starting to go down that path again. Good on him for being aware enough this time to realize that. Also great to see that Jim and Pam can still connect quickly like this. Show's they do have a strong relationship.

Author's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful response! I hope you're liking what's up so far. Hopefully I'll have more out soon!

Very nice piece here. I love the way they reconnect and Jim's thoughts in this chapter.

Summary:

What will Pam and Jim take to remember the other when Jim goes to Stamford? And who will influence their separation along the way? And why am I feeling the need for some angsty-ness?

Starts out between Season 2/3

I like this first chapter. Yes, it's angsty and a little depressing, but it's also right where Pam is at this point. I also like how you've Michael in this chapter. Yes, Michael is boorish and a man-child, but every so often he surprises everyone by actually being a nice guy and you captured that well in this chapter.

Author's Response: Thanks, W4! Glad you appreciated that rare moment in Michael. And your assessment of him as a boorish, man-child most of the time is so accurate.

Again, a good insight to how Pam is holding up. Setting the ground word for the Fancy New Beesly we'll come to know and love. Lots of good description here. Very easy to see Pam's apartment in the mind's eye.

Author's Response: Awwww! W4, thanks again! I was hoping to paint that picture without remarking on every single boring detail. Thank you! I hope you continue to enjoy.

I really liked this chapter. You really show Pam starting to get a handle on herself here. The change into the more confident Pam is great to see here. I love all the introspection Pam does. Yes there were good moments with Roy and those deserve to be remembered in some way. There were a lot of great moments with Jim and I liked how you had her keeping those in her mind with the cigar box display stand for the teapot.

It can get hard to show the mental progress someone makes, especially after the turmoil of Casino night but like I said you did it well. Great job, looking forward to more.

Author's Response: Aw, thanks, Warrior! Clearly we know Pam is someone who needs time, so this slow process of growth makes sense to me for her. I appreciate how you notice her need to keep those memories close and accessible (but still maybe a little out of sight) about Jim. Shoo, I'm glad you understand where I was coming from with Roy, too. Ten years is a lot to walk away from, right? There have to be a few things she will miss or reminisce about, even if they aren't enough to make her stay. Thanks so much for being so supportive with your comments.

Reviewer: warrior4 Signed 1
Date: November 14, 2018 Title: Chapter 4: Hers IV

Things that Jim kept that reminded him of Pam? Office Olympic origami doves, his copy of the mix tape he left in the teapot, the teapot card, some random doodle Pam gave him before Casino night, the citronella candle from grilled cheese on the roof. Hopefully there are a few possibilities in there for you.

So I liked how Pam's journey of introspection has come around in this chapter. She's finally okay with just being herself. Not Pam and, just Pam. Fancy New Beesly is ready to make herself known. There still is, and always will be, work to be done. However this is the start of the Pam who's ready to finally tell Roy the truth and who will walk through fire for Jim. Nicely done.

Author's Response: Hey Warrior! Thank you so much for responding, especially given the likelihood of sleep deprivation you are experiencing. I thought of the citronella candle, too! I kind of thought that was a crazy thought, but maybe we're on to something (or we're both crazy!). Thanks for your kind words. I think Pam went through a really terrible year in season three, but, as much I would have loved Jim to run back into her arms, I do like that she went on a bit of a journey alone.

I liked this one. Getting a new perspective on some of the Teapot Bonus Gifts as well as other things Jim collects. Getting a glimpse into Jim's mindset was good too. Looking forward to your next update.

Author's Response: Thanks, Warrior! There will be more getting into Jim's head in the next chapter as well. Glad you liked it, and, as always, thanks for the feedback!

Summary: Jim describes the journey to have Pam. A romantic, sad love story.

Kind of hard to tell how I feel about this one. It's very angsty up until the last couple sentences then all of a sudden it turns around. I get this is Jim's internal thoughts, but it seems a little disjointed.

Not to say it's not an honest peak into Jim's head, because it clearly is and that part you did well.

This was all so very sweet. Seeing the progression of their relationship like this was wonderful to see. I liked how even though they're now fully a couple, hints of the past are still there, but they've gotten past them. Very good.

Author's Response: Thanks, Warrior! Yeah, I think there will always be hints of the past for these two but it makes a rich history, right? Thanks for your nice review.

Summary:

Pam finally opens up to Jim after the unthinkable happens. 

I changed up the timeline a bit for this story. It’s as if Pam was painting the mural in the warehouse at the beginning stages of their relationship so they’re engaged but not married so obviously Cece hasn’t been born yet. 

I’m not great at summaries but please give it a chance

First the technical part of the review. In general one should start a new paragraph when someone new starts talking. Makes it easier for the read to know when someone new is talking. Likewise there are some grammar issues that can be improved to make it easier for the reader as well. Here's an example from this story.

"Pam" he breathed out, a few more tears falling down his cheeks "my god, Pam. I'm so sorry" he whispered as he let go of her hands so he could wrap her up in a tight hug.

Grammatically correct, to the best of my knowledge, it should be typed thusly. "Pam," he breathed out, a few more tears falling down his cheeks. "My god, Pam. I'm so sorry," he whispered as he let go of her hands so he could wrap her up in a tight hug.

A subtle difference, but it makes it easier to read. A few things that can help in the future is to have someone proofread for you, or there's grammar software you can download to help out as well.

Content, it's a very powerful story. Sexual assault is always a very charged subject. I applaud how you wrote Pam's courage to talk about it as well as Jim's support for her. That's not an easy tone to convey, but you were able to so from how I read your story.

Summary:

My submission to the 2018 Halloween contest!

Dwight has a haunted corn maze at Schrute Farms -- Jim and Pam decide to check it out. Set somewhere either pre-cameras or s1, not quite AU but not episode related either.

Very cute but still with all the angsty heartache of the early Jim and Pam relationship. It was very cute to imagine Pam grabbing onto Jim's arm like that.

Summary:

Jim Halpert loves his wife. He loves his children. He doesn't love being a werewolf… but then, who would?

I loved the digs about the twilight series. Any time someone roasts that thing my heart soars just a little more.

Great detail throughout. Once I warmed up to the idea it was actually quite fun. The Halpert family wolf pack was also quite fun to see too.

Summary:

Jim’s not much of a costume guy, but he has on occasion made exceptions…

A Halloween Fic set in Season 5, after the "Employee Transfer" cold opener, with high school flashbacks (because who doesn't love that?!)

This already looks promising. Can't wait to see where you go with it. Lots of fun to remember Pam's costume from her Pratt days as well as Jim's penchant for minimalism. I will admit I'm more looking forward to the scenes from high school though. Always lots of fun to play around with younger versions of the characters.

Author's Response: Yes, agreed writing high school Jim and Pam is fun, thanks for your comment!
