Bio:

Married mom of 2 almost grown and flown kids who began watching The Office when her own teenager put it on.

I was like Jim when he met Pam- fell in love almost instantly with those 2. Like them, my love blossomed but I always felt something missing especially in the lapse between season 3-4.

Seeking out Fan Fiction to fill in the gaps, I stumbled on MTT and fell in love yet again with the stories and the sense of community here.

With the amazing fics here and the vast pool of talent, I was enrapt by what I read, but still none of them quite matched what was floating around in my head so I began writing myself.

Finding a community of support here and a bunch of fandom friends, MTT is now my Dunder Mifflin, where I found my "unlikely family".

Summary:

The Office meets Harry Potter.

Michael discovers a Time Turner and takes Pam on a time-traveling adventure.


Takes place after The Carpet in season 2 with attempts to be as canon-compliant as much as possible considering it is a story that involves the supernatural. 

I'll say it again - Writing about time-travel is not easy but I hope to stay at least as accurate in the continuity as the show has been...(who started first, how many kids does Meredith have? how many sisters does Angela?) 

Feel free to call me out when I goof.

UPDATE 4/6 - Marked Complete - see story notes for a message of explanation and gratitude.  

What happened after Jim "struck gold" during his job interview in New York (season 3 finale) and before Pam went mining for celebrity sex tapes (season 4 opener), this chapter by chapter WIP has the story told through many points of view - none of them from the documentary film crew.

Summary: Past Featured Story

Pam and Jim had many missed opportunities but fate still brought them together. On Valentine's Day  they realize the first missed opportunity was much earlier when they were just 13 years old at a mutual friend's Bat Mitzvah. An AU like story based in canon.
