Chapter 18: The Second First Month Part Six
I can’t express how much I love it when this fic gets updated.
"But I've had this outfit picked out for weeks. What am I going to wear now?" she cried at Jim's reflection in the mirror. - Come on Pam, you don’t think Jim prepares his outfits beforehand too? He doesn’t just magically appear like that. Also, I know it’s not a brown sack but the irony of Pam ending up in a beautiful brown dress is not lost on me.
Love that Jim is a single tie guy. Love that he has something in common with the regular folks. Now excuse me as l have someone install massagers on my car.
(Side note: Nice callback to the car warming prank down to it being unoriginal)
It's what us lawyers do," Gerald distractedly said. "We can't all go to a ball game and call that a day's work, can we Jimmy?" he laughed, slapping Jim on the back. —> God damn it, Gerald. He’s trying okay? We can’t all be lawyers. Oh God, is Mark the son that Gerald always wanted? Is there some tension between Mark and Jim despite them being best friends? (Okay, but seriously. You really have to feel for Jim here. It’s not easy to always feel like you have to prove yourself to your parents. And I’m sure Gerald doesn’t intend for it to come off that way but… yeah, poor Jim.)
Pam’s past relationships really did a number on her , did they? I’m sad that she still needs a lot of reassurance that Jim is everything for her, but you’re really great at capturing their essence. I’m so happy it’s not all sunshine and rainbows for them, but it’s a relationship where they’re both growing and loving.
And lastly, where’s that comic strip of Jim’s Mr. Fantastic. Did he draw him to look lime himself? Lol.
God, this deserves a million jellybeans. But you’ll have to settle for a double windsor tie I guess. Come on, Jim. Didn’t your dad teach you how to do one? Oh…
Wow, where do I even start with this review. A big THANK YOU is clearly needed right off the bat!
I love that you love this. I hope I can keep giving you what you want. twss
Thank you so much for your contribution with the tie. It fitted in SO perfectly and just made that seen that little bit extra. You're a genius. But yeah, I feel he's had that outfit picked for a while too, although I do imagine his closet to just be rows and rows of the same clothes in varying shades of blue, black and grey, so he probably didn't have that much to choose from!!
Poor Jim indeed. There's a lot this fella is going through. Hello daddy has multiple layers to its name.
I'm trying not to make them too angsty, because I really can't do angst very well, but yeah Jam need a few tiny bumps in the road, just to keep it real
I would love to see the comic strip haha. Older Jim with a beard as drawn by a 7 year old Jim!
Thank you for the double windsor, I'll treasure it forever
