I probably should just let you know that I've been following this story for a long time.  I just could never pluck up the courage to review.  Anyway, this has to be story on this site.  I loved the last chapter.  And the letter about the almost break-in, I would love to see that scene in a future chapter.  Awesome work!

When I saw what this chapter was about, I squealed like a 8-year-old girl.  This was an awesome chapter.  Before, in my other review, I MEANT to say that this is one of the best stories on this site.   Wow.  First off, I loved how you were able to deflect the drama with humor. . .from Dwight of all people.  I could really see him doing that.

I also loved how tender Jim and Pam were with each other.  This chapter was perfect.  I love this story, and it's very well written.

Date: June 15, 2007 Title: Chapter 15: The Best Daddy

Awesome.  Just. . .awesome!  I think the thing I love most about this story is how well you describe Jim and Pam's interactions.  I could totally see them doing this.  I wouldn't be surprised if the writers of the show were reading this and used this for future episodes.  You characterized Pam perfectly, I could totally see her writing something all mushy and then being bashful about it.  I'm seriously loving every chapter you write.  Baby Jill is wonderful, and the way you write her, she's just so darn cute! 

I actually pump my fist when I see that you've updated.  I think that says enough.

Yay!  This was just so good!  Seriously, whenever I see that you update, I get all excited!  My favorite line had to be: "Yes - a dead baby in a drawer dream."  That line just had me rolling.  I've always been very impressed at how funny you are.  And you'll always have a fan in me.  Also!  We updated on the same day!  Great minds think alike, right.  We're kinda like that famous picture of those two masks were one's happy and one's sad.  You're like the happy mask because you write very funny stuff, and I'm like the sad mask because. . .well . .

Anyway, awesome job!



Author's Response: ROFL...the comedy and tragedy masks! That's hilarious....but yes, I see your point!!! And right on for us posting the same day - go us! Hmm...let me know when you're about to post again -- maybe I can swing it. :-)

Summary:

No matter how much this couple is perfect for each other, they are bound to have flaws. Jim and Pam head to marriage counseling, and learn to deal with their issues in a semi adult manner.

"She leaned over and whispered, "Swinging. You know...switching? I mean, I'm sure Luke would find you attractive and I definitely find your husband to be strapping..."

I was dying when read that!  Awesome how you really made all the other couples come alive.  I felt so sorry for Lauren, and I wanted to slap the swinger, rich chick.  I can't wait to see what happens later.  Write part 2 fast!

There once was a knight of the ancient family Halpert. He did battle for the hand of the maiden Beasley.

I really like this story.  It's very well done.  I am in awe that you are so good with making this story sound as if it really took place back in the middle ages.  How did you do that, if I may ask?  Did you read a lot of King Arthur?  This is wonderful, and I am impressed.

I would also love the "Jim" chapter if you would be so kind.

Author's Response: My real life job is. or that is used to be (I recently got promoted to a management position), writing reviews of new publications in the Medieval History field. So I read a lot of stuff.

Reviewer: Athena Signed 10
Date: May 13, 2007 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10 - Then longen folk to go on pilgrimages

Ya know, I find it a real shame that you aren't getting the praise you should for this story.  Wow. I mean, Wow!  As I've read over the last few chapters, I am amazed that you've been able to write like this.  I don't think people realize how hard writing in this language is, and they probably shy away from it because they can't understand it ( I can bearly understand it).  I'm still in awe.

Author's Response:

I am getting so much more praise for this story than I expected! Fact: MTT readers are great.That ANY of them are reading this astounds me. I think the majority of the people come here for light, fluffy pieces and nice, smutty stuff... I'm willing to bet no one has ever come to MTT thinking 'hmm, I wonder if there's anything about the Office but set in Middle Ages Britain!' This is definitely one of those things that I'm writing completely for my own pleasure.

Date: May 13, 2007 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 - A plague drove him forth

I wasn't saying that MTT readers aren't great, I was just saying that I was surprised that you don't have one of those little ribbion thingys (red or blue?) for this story.  While I agree that you're getting a lot of praise. . .you should be getting so much more.  And that's saying something.  I meant that people who don't understand the middle ages, or are only on here for quick fluff/smut fixes probably wouldn't take the time to read this story, which is a real shame, because they're missing out.

Author's Response:

Oh, the ribbony things, LOL! I can't tell you how unenviable the job must be to work the MTT site, they get roughly 20 stories a day, 5 or 6 of which are DAMN good and they only give out the ribbon things like every 4 or 5 days. How they decide, I will never know. I know I couldn't do it.

Thank you for such the complements though. Like I said earlier I'm surprised at the number of people who are reading it and it makes me happy to know that there are people out there, like me, who find this stuff interesting. I think people who watch the Office are just more literate than the normal television viewer.

Oh! I love this.  I love it so much, I shall stick it on my favorites. 

Awesome story.  I wanna be that for Halloween!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much Athena!  Favorited - Yes! 

Those Halloween characters came from Muggins and I or people in our lives.  There have been at least 2 Halloween parties which sported a BeigeWoman or a ChromaMan (yep, the other way from the story, but this totally works better!).  I'm sure no one would mind if you dressed as one of these characters for Halloween.  But Athena, do you have the gumption do say "I got the idea from fanfiction!  I read fanfiction and I'm not afraid to say it!"?  Gather your SuperCourage. 

I think Muggins and I will have to trot this out again nearer to Halloween, don't you?  We could have a whole army of monochromatic or color-coordinating superheroes.

Ohhh my gosh!  This chapter was frickin' rad!  Karen and Toby!!  And Karen. . .what a hussy!  Awesome job!  I'm looking forward to an update.  I really liked the Mother-daughter relationship in here.  It reminds me of me and my mom.

Mom: "What do you want to do?"

Me. *bursts into tears* "I DON'T KNOW!"

Fantastic!

"Rum for that bitch Pam."

That was, like, the best line of anything ever.  I loved this, it's so funny!! I love drunk people!



Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that line, I thought it was over-the-top in a fun way. Thank you for your kind words, and review Athena.

Summary:

Jim isn't inviting Pam to the Christmas Eve party he and Karen are holding. Three ghosts visit him the night before the big party and try to bring him to his senses. Will he listen to them, or will he convince himself that it is all a figment of his imagination and leave things the way they are?

I guess this is kind of AU?

It looks as if you are having some problems whith the format in your lastest chapter.  It's all jumbled together, and it's kinda hard to read.  I just thought you should know.

I've really enjoyed what I've read so far.



Author's Response: ahh i thought i fixed that! i don't understand why it's doing that...dangg. i will try and get it back to normal soon! thank you for letting me know!

After I read this, I have only one thing on my mind: How. In. The. Hell. DID I NOT NOTICE THIS STORY BEFORE!!!  This was wonderful.  You really got Pam and Jim just right, and I am also impressed at how well you wrote Roy.  You've already prooven and you can write comedy, and now you've prooven that you can write drama.  I'll never be as good of a writer as you, that's for sure.  A very powerful, sweet, heartfelt story. Well done!

Summary: Jim goes to many different restaurants.. as told from the point of view of his many waitresses :) A little AU, maybe. But mostly just a fun journey through all of Jim's meals dining out.

This was really cool! And refreshing! Madeleine reminded me of me.  I would so drop my pen at a cute guys feet, and then be embarrassed.  But also knowing me, I would probably drop is drink in his lap, too.  I can't wait to read the rest.

Author's Response: Thank you!! I definitely based the first one off of myself-- I actually had a part with spilling a drink in there, but I took it out haha. I\'m glad you like it so far -- I\'m having a lot of fun writing it :)

Oh! I just love this idea!  So original, and your writing is very well done.  I could totally see the nice boy Jim, as well as the flirty, sleezy Jim.  I'm excited to see where this goes, and I hope you continue quickly!  Nice work!



Author's Response: Thanks!!  I'm excited to see where it goes too, although I guess as the writer I'm biased...
