"He would have been the first to admit that he was imperfect, but he would have done so in the careless way of those who think that the mere acknowledgement of the possibility of fault should inoculate them against the need to take any further action to cure themselves of the fault so graciously admitted" is a dynamite description of Roy. I think it was a good choice to give him enough savvy to detect something was wrong right from the get-go - this is Roy as something quite a bit more than a bumbling buffoon, but as someone keen enough to take advantage of the situation he's in and loathe to have that situation threatened.
MEREDITH DRANK THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON UNDER THE TABLE. That's amazing. As is the fact that Jim's acquaintance with Phyllis is going to end up keeping him in Pam's orbit.
Author's Response: Meredith has superpowers (although for all I know, Wellesley was a lightweight). And thank you--I'm very proud of that description of Roy.

I was out of pocket for a few days and was so excited to see multiple chapters! This has very quickly become a favorite. I’ve been wondering when Roy would show up and I have to say, I love how you’ve written him. I like seeing his side of the story, so to speak, or at least his thoughts on Jim. I think you definitely nailed it. I can’t wait to see how they interact next, outside of the party!
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm always worried about my depiction of Roy, so I'm glad you are enjoying it.
