Bio:

I've never actually written fan fiction before. Luckily, my obsession with The Office is fully supported by friends and family. We've all agreed that we just want Jim and Pam to be friends again, dammit!

Oh, and normally? When I'm normal... I write normal fiction. You know... books, magazine articles, dirty letters...

I imagine Roy writing this down after drinking 9 or 10 beers and then crashing with no memory. I assume you stole this off his bed because you don't want him to think about Pam anymore. He's got better things to do with his life. Like living.

I imagined this exact same exchange after I saw that episode ! I just knew Roy would be pissed ...especially for a teapot. I bet he never in a million years would drink hot tea. You've succinctly shown how stupid he would think the whole thing was.

Wow! Sensitive Roy! Always a shocker. Trying to put these thoughtful words inside his neanderthal body was difficult for me until I got into the groove. An interesting groove - he can't articulate the complex thoughts that are ruining his life. On reread, I was glad to see you never have him actually speak aloud any of these thoughts. I think he would be incapable of it.

You are so good at conveying, in just a few words, complex thoughts.

Example please:  suggests good sense. Short nails, ruddy skin, steel-toed boots.

When I reread that I was amazed it was so short. I had filled in so much information between the lines. I imagined her trimming her nails each morning so they wouldn't be broken at work hauling stuff. I imagined no nail polish so they wouldn't be chipped. She still wishes to be presentable & pretty, therefore, carefully clipped each day so nothing is ragged or ugly. All that from: short nails. That's just incredible writing! Thank you again and can't wait to read next week's Nomadshan!!

 



Author's Response: You know, one of my day-jobs is writing grant proposals, and there's often a word- or page-limit, so it's taught me to trim my writing down to the fewest, most effective words possible. Plus, it's fun to try and find those words. Thanks so much for reviewing, Muggins - it's nifty to know you'll be reading one a week :)

In front of him, Andy chuckled into his phone, and said, "Sure thing," before hanging up. He clicked around online a few times, then turned to Jim.

"Hey, Big Tuna. Can I interest you in a friendly match?"

Jim looked up, confused. "What?"

Andy rolled his chair back so Jim could see Andy's monitor. VirtualSwordfight.com. Andy's avatar bounced while it waited.

Jim sighed. "Sure. What the hell." He logged in and their match screen came up. Something caught his eye. "Huh."

For crying out loud! I knew it was coming and I still got chills! How do you do that????

he leaned back against the cold stone wall, and pulled out his phone. Concentrating very hard, Jim sent a text message to the last person he ever thought he would.

Help. The Pit. NYC.

A few moments later, he sent a second one, just in case.

Jim's eyebrows rose. "Michael has some pretty compromising photos of you and one of the gorillas. And the gorilla's on top."

This really sounds possible to me. Hmmm.

Toby chuckled and said, "Have you ever considered starting your own business? Somewhere... not here?"

Oh Toby. That is so Toby. So perfect....

I liked the way you referenced other episodes of "The Office". I wish we knew more about Darryl's background. Maybe that's why this story is so touching...it fills some of that in for us.

This was a very insightful piece. I liked the small details like the manicure & and the thoughts like "What the hell? Who eats that?" I wish they would give Karen some moments like that in the show. Make her more human.

Summary:

A series of drabbles, set after Back From Vacation (with some slight spoilers) and deviating from there. Pam makes Jim face the same difficult decision (and consequences) that she had to deal with.

Each drabble is 100 words according to MS Word, so if the summary says otherwise...it's lying. :0)
