Bio:

Found The Office summer '06. Immediately fell in love with JAM. Obsessed ever since.

I no longer work as a part-time receptionist, which is sort of sad because I feel less connected to Pam (just kidding!).  I'm almost finished getting my Masters in literacy and I'm a first year high school teacher! So basically I have nothing resembling free time or... sanity.

I can't remember if I've reviewed this story already, but if I have, this bears repeating. This is my favorite story. Bar none. I love how you have things move nice and slow, how they're both characteristically at ease around each other most of the time, and then when it gets to the tough stuff they're suddenly awkward and nervous. 

Basically, you both rock.

I love this. It reminds me of early second season JAM. I miss this kind of interaction between them. They were adorable together.

I honestly think that you have kidnapped John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and at least two of the writers on the show.

I think that you keep these people locked in your basement and when you want to add a chapter to this you make them write and/or act it out, because it's just so freaking hilarious and perfectly them

So yeah, you're either a felon or you're extremely talented.



Author's Response: Well I'll tell you what...if I had them locked up, you certainly woudln't be getting the crap episodes you're getting right now! lol. We'd have our JAM together! hahah. Thanks for cracking me up! LOVED the feedback! So cool to hear stuff like this!

Your Dwight was the best I've ever read. Not just the best Dwight I've ever read--just the best thing I've ever read. HILARIOUS. I must have laughed out loud twenty times, and I am not exaggerating. Jesus, you are amazing at writing realistic, hilarious dialogue! 

My favorite part: 

"Buttons, paint, paint brushes, knives, forks, breasts -

Jim reached up to scratch the back of his head, then pointed to the list. "That's a little hard to explain..." 

I literally guffawed. So, so good.



Author's Response: hahaha! I accept your proposal Shan. However...only if you vow to supply me with chapters of T&C for the next 40 years or whatever. lol. Your feedback was hilarious so I'm glad my story was too!

I somehow missed Three French Hens. How did I let that happen? Anyway, that has to be my favorite chapter so far. Jim would absolutely be worried that Pam would talk herself out of everything. I love the way he tries to convince her to go to Paris. Let's just say it's safe for you to assume that I love every minute detail of this story.

Author's Response:

Well - I'm glad you went back and found those French Hens!

Oh, this was so good! I just read your other story, and I had to check out your other stuff because it was so fantastic. This was just great because it gives us little hints that even this early on, Karen wasn't right for Jim. But you still give Karen her due. She's funny and nice enough. Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks for your kind comments on both of my stories.

Niiiice </Kevin>

Really glad it's finally out there. This is how it should happen on the show. Karen should just ask and get a straight answer.

I like Karen and I think she needs to let Jim have it in the next chapter. I mean, she followed him to Scranton because he asked her to, even though he knew he'd see Pam again and that he still has feelings for her and that she was no longer engaged. If I was Karen, I'd be piiiiiiiissed.

But, you know, JAM all the way! 



Author's Response:

I agree.  Because inevitably, she's going to see or hear something fishy and she's going to need to know.  So I hope she asks and gets a straightforward answer.

I like Karen, too, and it's really hard not having her come across as a major bitch in this story, while still showing sympathy for her.  I'd be pissed as well!

Oh jeeze... I really like this so far, but I hope this blows up in Jim's face because it's so wrong. He's such a nice guy that I'm not sure I can quite believe he'd cheat on Karen like this. Well, I take it back. I can definitely believe that at least after the first kiss he would have stayed with Karen, but now... I don't know. Gah! Conflicted feelings!

(p.s. I still really like it)



Author's Response:

Yeah, that was a problem I had with it, too. Jim's too much of a nice guy, but there has to be something underneath all that 'niceness'. I'm just not sure it's that.

But, guaranteed this would blow up in his face. Not only would not like doing it, but I'm almost positive Pam wouldn't put up with it.

Thanks for still liking it, though. ;)
