Andy *wanting* to be the Dwight of the Stamford office and not being able to is a very apt description of S3 Andy, poor guy.
I love the remixed Merge dialogue - although it's sort of wrenching to see it leave them in mostly the same place, even with Pam making a big swing.

Aww man the S3 angst. Hoping that being in Stamford will help them through it ( plus Jim not dating Karen) but it feels so real.
Author's Response: It’s nice to hear it feels real, even though angst is never really what I’m going for...

Ok, so basically "The Merger" but in Stamford. I do like how Jim's instinct is to have her in his arms. Trust that instinct Jim, it'll lead you to a safe harbor. Still, he's scared. Pam threw him for a loop by showing up here and it shows. Hopefully the crash of the waves will settle a bit for him to hear that voice inside.
Pam though is doing as well as can be expected. Yes, swim diagonal or parallel to shore to get out of the rip, but once, out of the rip and into calm water, one still needs to swim to shore to get to the safety of the beach. Hopefully she'll get of the rip soon and then take the more direct approach. It worked with getting away from the sinking boat that was Roy. It could work well to get to the safe harbor that is a relationship with Jim too.
Lovely writing. The nautical metaphors are still working well in my opinion.
Yep, basically “The Merger” in Stamford (for now). It’ll deviate a little more in the next chapter - mostly because Pam arrives in time to disrupt the Karen thing from becoming a thing...
I’m glad the metaphor is still working. I’m really trying to balance overusing it & not mentioning it at all. I hope I’m mostly hitting that sweet spot in the middle.
Thanks for reviewing! (As always).

Ugh! Why can't these two just communicate?! Lovely chapter. Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Communication is definitely not their strong point... It’ll take less than the entirety of Season 3 for them to sort things out here though. Thanks for the review!
