Bio:

Wife, mother (of children, not dragons, generally). Hopeless romantic, massive JAM shipper. 

Also present on FanFiction.Net under the same name, where I wrote a fair number of stories for Bones, which for over ten years was the TV love of my life. Until now.

I’m still fairly new to The (US) Office, but as a Brit, I was really into the UK version and wasn’t too sure about this upstart US reboot, even with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s input. I’d seen a few episodes over the years, knew vaguely about the Jim/Pam storyline and that there was chemistry, but not really clicked on how good it was, and as for the rest, the little I’d seen? Well, Craig Robinson is Doug Judy in B99 to me, Rashida Jones - Ann Perkins in Parks and Rec; and I didn’t even know that Ellie Kemper and Ed Helms had been in it for several seasons, let alone James Spader and CATHERINE TATE?!  Then I binge-watched it all the way through early in UK lockdown in Spring  2020 and suddenly it all clicked, and I fell hard for JAM. Really hard.

I’ve now watched some episodes several times, but I’m following via the Office Ladies podcast, so I’m really getting into the detail of the show itself as well as the love story.

In real life I have my own Jim (although his name isn’t Jim and he doesn’t work in paper, but he is lovely), two teenagers, a naughty Beagle and a cheeky Jack Russell. I work in the IT Industry.

Summary:

So this is something a bit different. For work, I recently started to experiment with ChatGPT, which is an "intelligent" chatbot and part of a series of Artificial Intelligence (AI) initiatives by a company called OpenAI.

You can find out about ChatGPT and how it works, here: https://openai.com/blog/chatgpt/ 

and OpenAI here: https://openai.com/about/

It's free to sign up, but the GPT Bot can sometimes get overloaded (it's a hot topic in the IT world at the moment) and you may have a wait a while to play with it. 

I thought it might be fun to ask the Chat GPT bot to generate some stories for Jim and Pam. When I shared the first of these on the MTT Discord, there was some amusement, and a request to publish more. This "story" is the output of various combinations I've tried.
