A Will They or Won't They AU with Pam and Jim as next door neighbors.
“Pam, come on. Don’t do that.” The sound of his bare feet on the wooden floor following behind kept me in motion through the dining room, looking under chairs for my sandals. I summoned everything I had in me not to look at him in his currently half-dressed state.
“Don’t do what? Jim, I’m fine. Really.”
I’m just in love with you and you only want to be friendly neighbors. And, also, since I’m being honest with myself, my body is not loving the unsated high of being as aroused as I just felt with your hands on me like that.
Jim is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet-to-Be. Because I watch too much A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life every December. Set during "Dwight Christmas" in Season 9 for the 2018 Secret Santa Fic Exchange.
I own nothing here. Concepts and characters go to Greg Daniels, Charles Dickens, and Frank Capra.
What will Pam and Jim take to remember the other when Jim goes to Stamford? And who will influence their separation along the way? And why am I feeling the need for some angsty-ness?
Starts out between Season 2/3
Submitted for the 2018 Halloween competition
Jim listens to Pam ask the kids to put on their shoes, remind them to get their folders from the homework basket, inquire if they remembered to put a snack in their backpacks. Since October 2007 (before that, if he’s really honest with himself) Halloween has never been ‘just another day’ with Pam, but here she is in 2018 with no costume, no theme, and no expectations of him. He’s left feeling unsettled and...more than a little disappointed.
