HE GOT LARISSA TO BRING HER LUNCH FROM CUGINO'S WITH THE MEAL SHE HAD THE FIRST TIME THEY ATE THERE AND THE BREADSTICKS ROY WOULDN'T LET HER TRY.
SHE'S TRYING TO REMIND HERSELF WHY SHE SHOULDN'T KISS HIM.
That's it. That's the review.

Oh this is lovely. I'm so glad you wrote this chapter this way, between him going overboard and her being right there with him, it's adorable.
Author's Response: They’re both a whole lot in love with each other and a whole lot scared by this point. Such fun.

Yaaaaaaaay! You updated again!
This was great- every time Jim got all doubt-y about going overboard (sea metaphor there) with his attentions to Pam, I got nervous right with him that this was going in a terribly angsty direction, but it didn't and I thank you!
I'm glad Pam's sticking to her guns about taking it slow, but also struggling with it mightily.
Thank you for the update!
Author's Response: I loved this review - thanks so much! I sea what you did there ;)

Yay! Update! And the amazing one!
I love that despite all the insecurities, they can talk about themselves. And even though I would be delighted with the happy kiss, I like and appreciate Pam's concern about this whole dating thing. My fingers are still crossed :)
P.S. I've read a pretty angsty fic earlier, and your story increased my mood very much!
Author's Response: I’m so glad you’re happy to see an update! You’ll have to tell me which angsty fic - sometimes I’m just in the mood for some good angst!

Okay so a lot going on here really. I like how Pam is finding her footing more and more. It's giving her the courage to talk about things she would have avoided in the past as well as start to explore new horizons with Jim. That whole, "I need to find out who Pam is without anyone else" deal you got going on Pam? You're well on your way. From where I'm sitting it seems like she's not even aware she's well down that path, which is also somewhat fitting for her character. Lovely writing to bring that about.
Then there's Jim. Yes the storm has passed, but he's still bobbing on the waves. Maybe it's more the eye wall of the hurricane is past him. There are still big wind and waves that are tossing him about. However the wind and waves aren't a strong or intense as before, and they're getting calmer with each moment. See him pulling pranks and rolling his sleeves up again.
However there's also something new in Jim's spyglass as he looks across the horizon. A lighthouse in the form of Pam. She's there shining brightly, calling to him, not only alerting him of the dangers of rocks along the shore, but also guiding him to safe harbor. He's still a ways out to sea, but there's a light calling him home at last. With a strong beacon blazing across the waves, there's a sure course to set at long last.
Also loved that Jim brought Cugino's and they're playing pranks. Very cute moments that were a lot of fun to read.
Author's Response: You’re onto me, Warrior. That whole thing you wrote about Pam being further along in figuring out who she is then she realizes? That’s going to be something she starts to recognize in a not too distant chapter...

Yes hi. Hello. It’s me. I love this story so much and this chapter is perfect and I’ll have real, helpful words to say about it later when I’m not “working” but I loved this update a lot and Pam has to remind herself not kiss Jim and it’s fine. I’m fine.
Author's Response: Hi, it’s you! I’m starting to become concerned that you’ve been at work for a very, very long time...
