It's a great story. It's a shame that it's unfinished, but every piece of it so perfect, and everyone so in character, that's... I give up, it's just fantastic. I feel like Kelly trying to talk about its merits.

Summary: FeatureJim, Pam, Pam's 'all time favorite' movie, and the little push they need.  Spoilers up to Phyllis's Wedding.  A little angst, a little fluff...my first ever Office fic, just a little almost-Valentines Day oneshot I wrote yesterday.  Enjoy, feedback would be awesome.

I'm crying. Wonderful story.

Summary:

 Michael’s leaning forward on his elbows, staring at her across his desk.  “That was definitely heroic and, if I may say so, romantical of you.  Well done.” While he shoots her what is meant to be a congratulatory grin, Pam stares down at the teal glass shards in her laps, still clutching the ice pack, trying desperately to pretend that the tears have stopped.

Post-Cocktails.

This story is beautiful beyond words. I'm crying right now, after finishing reading. Thank you for all these emotions.

Summary: Past Featured Story

What if Pam refused to let Angela drop her off at home after the Dundies?

“I want to go to Jim’s,” Pam said, interrupting Angela’s thoughts.

Angela felt as though her head might pop off and land in one of her cup holders. Would the depravity of this night never end?

Restart by agian18 Rated: T [Reviews - 90] 78 New!
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 :)

Wonderful and painful story. Though I was expecting a happy end, the roller coaster was tremendous. I don't know how I feel if read it on-going, he-he :)
I like the way Jim acted every time so much... the world doesn't deserve him. And I felt for Pam so much, the whole situation she had trapped in absolutely horrifying. Glad, she didn't lose her senses and restored some part of her memories. And Roy... I felt strange compassion for him, especially in the last scene with him.
Than you so much for this story!

Summary:

Roy isn't perfect, but Pam loves him, and love is about looking past the problems isn't it? Jim is too preoccupied with his feelings for his best friend to see what is really going on. Dwight sees something private and begins to suspect that one of his co-workers is in a bad situation. Don't worry. He has a plan.

I like this story very much. I'm not a fan of a darker reality (e.g., abusive!Roy), but you made it so good! And it's great that in this story some serious stuff discussed (honestly, I have no idea about dealing with domestic violence before). Hope you continue your fic!

Oh, this is a wonderful story! I adore the Regency era, and you made a great mix of the show events with the historical setting. You inspire me to create something regency-ish myself. Thank you!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you followed through on that inspiration, and I'm glad you liked this; I was in the midst of reading every Regency romance I could get my hands on and this was the output...

Summary: Set during and just after the events of "The Job," at the end of Season 3. Jim is in New York at his interview when a certain something causes him to pause. *Recently updated to fix a few sentences and make it more in line with my other stories.*

I like this story. Confident Jim is amazing, and I adore Pam, who likes her new, more honest, and brave personality and doesn't want to erase all changes. And I like the way they communicated, open and honest. I wish they always did the same...

Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment for this. It was my first foray into writing for The Office and it's always a fun trip down memory lane for me when I re-read it. Jim and Pam's biggest issue has always been lack of good communication. With Pam going through the journey she did in S3 to my mind it makes sense that that would also inspire Jim to do the same and thus we can have a scene like this one. Thanks again for the comment. 

Summary:

 One-Shot

Jim receives a phone-call from a very drunk Pam the night of her wedding. With her wedding opening a fresh wound in his heart, he doesn't talk long before silencing his phone and going back to sleep. 

Pam wakes up with fuzzy memories of the night before, horrified at what she might have said in the voicemails she left Jim.

This story is painful yet beautiful. I can't decide what I would prefer for them - to share everything or have some personal secrets only for themselves.
Nevertheless, you've made an excellent piece of pain and hope. Thank you!

Summary: Michael feels very blessed a little earlier than Season 4 and Meredith is spared from being hit by his car. Instead, he hits someone else – because he’s Michael and occasionally he’ll hit someone with his car. So sue him? Set Season 3.

I don't know where to start.
It's a fantastic story. I've re-read it at least three times, and I'm not going to stop :)
You nailed the characters perfectly. Pam is sweet, and I love so much her high morality - even if it hurt herself, she would do things right. Jim is absolutely adorable, and communication between January Jim and December Pam is a gem. I have mixed feelings for Karen (honestly, I don't like to hate her, but I wanted to turn off the show every time she appeared on the screen), but in this story, she is quite lovely. And the fact she could make some kind of friendship with Pam... oh my, I have a kink here, I guess :)
Thank you for this fantastic 'how-it-should-have-been.'

Author's Response:

This review really made my day. Thanks so much, Dernhelm!

I feel the same way about Karen... She’s the worst, but also she’s totally not. She’s so much more like-able when she bows out diplomatically, early on. It’s too bad it didn’t really happen that way...

And I really enjoyed that Jim took Toby's place at that time. I can't imagine how painful it would be for Toby to deal with aggressive Pam... and Jim kinda needs it. Hehe :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I think we all know how it's going to end, but the point is the details, isn't it? :)

I truly enjoy this story. Perhaps things between Jim and Pam are going too fast, but come on, and things were going too slow in the show, so that's a nice improvement.
Also, I love the interaction between Pam and Angela. That's great that they have some kind of friendship, and even with Jim's presence, they keep it.
Hope you update soon!

Author's Response: Yes, my personal frustration with how things worked so slowly on the show is why I write fanfiction, lol. So glad you are enjoying that and what I'm doing with this AU. More very soon!

This chapter hurts. It's very well-written, the characters' struggles are palpable, their mutual uncertainties are natural and understandable. And yet...
I love supportive Meredith, by the way. It's the first story I've ever read where she has her voice of wisdom. That's nice.

Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you liked Meredith.
