Love the Marvel reference - in my head-canon Jim is a big DC fan, particularly of Superman.

Author's Response: Thanks! I agree; I think Jim is a Superman guy rather than a Batman guy, but probably DC. I could also see him as a fan of someone weird, like the Martian Manhunter or Blue Beetle.

Summary: My AU version of how Pam and Jim met. Pam is a young widow and lacks the courage to move on--until a cute young salesman joins Dunder Mifflin. Romance, humor, and light angst.

Very nice AU, I like Pam's budding relationship with Jim and her friendship with Angela. I wonder how far this AU will go - will it reach the events of S3?

Author's Response: Thank you! So glad you are enjoying what I'm doing here with our beloved characters. As for how long it will go, I see one or two chapters tops. My stories rarely go past ten chapters, so no, we won't make it even to season 1. But I do appreciate your kind review.  More soon!

Summary:

After the events of Casino Night, Pam is adrift and Jim is anchored. 

A spin on early Season 3 that relies far too heavily on nautical imagery and references to Titanic...

First three chapters are really good; however, I feel that this fourth chapter presents some problems. Pam making friends with Karen is perfectly fine, good even, but I don’t see her doing exactly what Jim did, word for word. It’s also unfortunate that Pam’s actions result in Jim staying at odds with Karen - he clearly needed a friend during his time at Stamford and now that Pam has essentially stolen his opportunity, Jim has lost a possible anchor to keep him from her. Next, you might not be keeping a strict timeline here, but presumably these events take place after “The Convention”, so shouldn’t Jim be inclined to think that Pam is dating, i.e. not single?

Obviously there’s more to come, so maybe these events will be re-contextualized in later chapters.

Author's Response:

Hi Jimboree, 

Thanks for taking time the time to review. 

The timeline of this is a little clunky, I agree, but the convention has not yet happened. Essentially these events are taking place around the same time as Gay Witch Hunt. Jim has had no contact from Pam. Pam hasn’t dated. 

In regards to Karen, very early on in Season 3, she doesn’t appear to be interested in Jim. She comes across as more perplexed/annoyed by him. I’m basing this entirely how she speaks about him in Gay Witch Hunt - as this is about the time it’s set, I’ve aimed to recreate the same Karen here. 

I decided to use the same prank, & basically the same dialogue for a number of reasons. Mostly because Pam & Jim have pranked together for so long it doesn’t seem out of the bounds of reality for them to approach something in a similar way... Plus, it worked for Karen in canon & helped us see another side of her. 

 You said “Jim has lost a possible anchor to keep him from her.” That was exactly the point. Without Karen, Jim would have returned to Pam far, far earlier on - that’s the plan here.  

I hope this all makes some sense!

Okay, gotcha. I remembered the chip-hunting taking place after "The Convention" and so thought that you had placed your story there - thanks for the explanation.

I wonder what will keep Jim from Pam if Karen is no longer an obstacle...? Maybe Jim hasn't had enough time to build up his defenses?

Author's Response:

That totally makes sense. I’ve picking using bits & pieces from basically any episode up to & including The Merger. I might add a note to clarify the timeline a little in the next update. 

There won’t be too many obstacles to come - this is probably about the halfway point of this story.  

The Poconos by Hotdog Rated: MA [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

Pam reminisces about her time spent with Roy in The Poconos.

 (If you don't like Roy maybe don't read, but if I do a next chapter it will most likely feature Jim).

Constructive Criticism Time:
Having Pam reminisce about Roy, in this way, could be pretty bad early in the relationship. Having her do it when she’s been married to Jim for years, with two kids? It makes them both look bad.
