First off, I don't mean to come off spammy! But I am in love with the story you wrote, 'Here in the Smallest Bones'. My best friends and co-hosts, Lynds, Danny and I have been reading through it and love this premise. Plus, we're huge Office fans. :)
We are the hosts of Fangasm (previously Potterotica), a comedy podcast where we read erotic pop culture fan fiction. We initially read Harry Potter fanfic, but are branching out into other fandoms! We would love to if we could possibly feature your story / read your story (giving you cred of course) on our podcast (we always get the authors permission)!
We've been featured on the HuffPo, Buzzfeed, MTV, Bustle, NY Magazine - The Cut, etc. (with 3M+ downloads since we launched two years ago!). Clearly, the aim of the podcast is to be humorous, playful, and fun-as-hell—always teasing the characters, never you as the author.
Here's the to the podcast website, so you can check it out -- fangasmpodcast[dot]com

Thanks so much! Can't wait to hear back :)

Oh my gosh, I NEVER thought I'd be able to get into any sort of slash story but you completely drew me in. AMAZING! I liked seeing a more vulnerable Ryan, I think there's a lot more to him then we get to see in the show. I never would have thought that there could be a realistic scenerio for such a thing to take place but you managed to pull it off without making me doubt Jim and Pam's relationship. Really well done!

Woah. The fact that this wasn't just some mindless threesome smut makes it ten times hotter. The conflict and everything, it was very realistic. Maybe that's the reason it was so hot. Because if Pam and Jim were to have sex with Ryan all at once, this is how it'd probably go down. This story also turned me onto Ryan's character a bit, which is kinda hard to do, so good job with that. Awesome story. Adding it to my favorites.
Author's Response: Thank you! I don't usually find plain old smut to be really enjoyable either, unless there's a pre-existing relationship or something deeper going on, so I'm glad it worked for you. And Ryan wasn't a character I'd really thought about either until I started writing this, and now I feel like I understand/sympathize with him better. Although maybe not so much the current Ryan. ;)

My blood pressure could barely keep up with this. You really built the tension nicely and that wonderful moment of clarity between Jim and Pam was beautifully written. Wonderful work.
Author's Response: Thanks so much!

I feel like you should have a zillion positive reviews of this story posted by now, but sadly I can only add one. You are such a great writer--I'll read your stuff even when the pairing makes me nervous, because of your track record all the way back to X-Files fanfic.
This managed to be hot and yet, all about the romance, about Pam and Jim struggling through something. In addition to what other reviewers mentioned, I'd add Ryan's subtle concession of defeat ("you two take the bed") to my list of "things I loved in this piece."
Thank you so much! The relationship struggle was exactly what I was going for, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
(And wow, XF seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? I fear the new movie...)

As hot as this is (and oh, man, is it,) what I really liked was that the sexual encounter was like a vehicle for something deeper happening between them...sort of a threshold they each needed - in different ways - to pass through in their relationship (if that makes any sense, lol. ) And I especially like how you ended it with them doing the most mundane thing - life back to normal in a way, only more now. Really well done.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I knew I wanted to write something smutty, but the real point was to have that dynamic get played out, especially since it wasn't really about Ryan at all. And yeah, they needed to be normal at the end, but with a little hint of things being changed. So glad you liked it!

I decided to forgo an incoherent reply of keymashing and wait until the morning to reply to this.
I think what I like most about this is there's still the conflict you see in the show there. It's not just 'they all do each other, yay!', there's this whole subtle fight between Jim and Ryan, even when they're doing, well, that to each other. So I thought this was excellently written. ;D
Author's Response: Thank you so much! The challenge for me was to balance that conflict with writing a decent sex scene, so I'm really glad that worked for you. :)

I love the way you take the time to make even the characters secondary to your story ring true. Dwight's "Achtung," Phyllis's sad resignation, and Angela's bone-meanness were all note perfect.
And Jim's arc of lust and self-flagellation is very beautiful here. It's painful and so accurate and amazing.
Also, it was extremely hot. That almost goes without saying.
Author's Response: Thank you! I do like writing ensemble scenes (Ishould do them more often), and I realized I hadn't actually done much exploration of Jim's character for a while. He's got something interesting going on this season, and I'm excited to watch it unfold.

I have to admit, the premise of this made me nervous. But I read through it, and really enjoyed it! Definate AU material, but a very interesting idea. I think we're going to see more on the show about Pam being the one who wants to pursue the bug city life. Ok, i'll stop the rambling! Nive story, very sweet ending! Oh, and the walk of shame... yeah... lol
Author's Response: Thanks! I know it's an unusual story, but I was trying to keep it close to what we're actually seeing in Jim and Pam's relationship this season, with Pam maybe taking a little more initiative than Jim. Glad you enjoyed it.
