I'm really enjoying it so far. I especially liked the bit about Pam feeling like she didn't really "know" Roy after 10 years. I went outside to have a cigarette after reading this chapter and had to put it out half way because I was anxious to read on!

Author's Response: Oh, I'm glad that part rang true for you!  Thank you so much for the review~!

Wow! This was just amazing. Whew! I'm honestly at a loss for words. I'm reveling in the emotional impact right now. Hopefully I can reread and come back with a less nonsensical review. Really wonderful...thanks for writing and sharing it.



Author's Response: Hey, any feedback is good - so thank you for taking the time! GLad you liked it --

Summary: Past Featured StoryYup, it’s a post-Cocktails fic! With a bit of a twist. Karen does a bad thing, and Jim is about to suffer the consequences…

Loving your story.

Especially loved this bit: Maybe spin her around and hoist her onto the counter, cocoa be damned, and ravish her right there.

"cocoa be damned" lol, good stuff



Author's Response: Hehehe. I think I should try to work the phrase "cocoa be damned" into every story I write :) Thanks for the review!

Awww, last line of that chapter made me smile too.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. I think this chapter's probably my favorite so far too.

You don't like it much? I think the Phyllis chapter is great! (Keeps reading on)



Author's Response: I just had a really hard time getting it down to 100 words, and in the end I posted it more to get it out of my hair than because I thought it was great, so anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Reviewer: OpalArk Signed 8
Date: March 19, 2007 Title: Chapter 12: like it or not

I really enjoyed reading these short character insights, and I liked the morning concept. My favorite chapters were the ones on Jan, Phyllis and Dwight. Looking forward to more from you.

Author's Response: Wow. What a sweet thing to say! Personally, I liked Jan's, Angela's and maybe Dwight's chapters best, but I keep changing my mind.

Summary:

My very own requisite, post-"Cocktails" fight/angst/smut fest.

I apologize to everyone who's tired of the FIGHT!ness of all these post-Cocktails stories, but I promise it's worth it. I hope. I also apologize to everyone who has already read this through Livejournal, but it took me a long time to get this site to work for me.

Powerful stuff.

Wow this is great so far. I especially like the way you write dialogue...very "in character". *keeps reading*

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you think its in character especially :)

Reviewer: OpalArk Signed
Date: April 08, 2007 Title: Chapter 6: I love girl talk

If you described the premise to someone...cruise, hide and seek, drinking games...it would sounds just plain silly. But you really sell it...I am completely engrossed. Again, your dialogue seems just spot on. The scene with Jim and Pam in the closet...just great. *keeps reading*



Author's Response: Thank you again!  Hope you enjoy the rest of the story as well :)

Date: April 09, 2007 Title: Chapter 11: It's been a really rough couple of days... this helps a little.

I'm a lousy reviewer...but I just wanted to say I am loving this story. Thanks for what you have written so far...and please keep going as long as you can! (twss)

Author's Response: Thank you for saying that!! (And for TWSS'ing yourself ;) )

Reviewer: OpalArk Signed 10
Date: April 18, 2007 Title: Chapter 1: Hold on, its gonna be a bumpy one

I'm sad this story is over...you write the characters so well, I've enjoyed reading every bit of it. I admit, I really wanted things to work out with Jim rather than Ryan...but your writing is so strong I'd have to say this is my favorite fanfic I have read so far.

Also, loved the Creed moment in the last chapter about Detroit. I laughed out loud there.

Summary:

Sometimes you just have to try new things. A Pam/Ryan story that is more about Pam/Jim than you would think.

I thought this chapter was really well-written. I like your interpretation of Ryan's inner thoughts. I especially liked the bit where Ryan was all annoyed with Jim's sighing and such. I'll definitely keep reading.

Date: August 04, 2007 Title: Chapter 16: Epilogue: Tangy Chicken and Fruit Kabobs

This was a really great story and it kept me here reading all morning. When the phone vibrated during Jim and Pam's kiss, for some reason I wanted it to be Ryan calling from the parking lot where he could see them.....but it was still pretty cool. I'm glad she chose Jim, and within the context of your story, I don't think that was "unoriginal" at all. I skipped the epilogue because of the possible Harry Potter spoilers, thanks for the warning.

All and all, great read, thanks for sharing it!

I've been mostly away from the fanfic since the big hiatus last season...and WOW, I've been missing some crazy stuff.

I am loving your take on Andy...even with the dominatrix comment, it never really occurred to me until reading this how it would make him an incredible lover.

This was just great all around, hot, great character analysis, well-written...can't wait to search for and read more of your stuff.



Author's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to comment... so glad you liked it.  I'm not sure what I'll write next but hopefully it'll feature well analyzed characters sexing each other.  ;)

Summary: In science, the term "observer effect" refers to changes that the act of observing will make on the phenomenon being observed.

Wonderful story. I couldn't stop reading. I especially liked the bit about Pam being home alone and watching the show and how that might impact her feelings for Jim. Well done.

Author's Response: Thanks so much!
