Wow. I was not expecting that. Nice AU that just went into the deep end. Roy can be so misunderstood depending on how you look at it. This story is just a tragic option that shows how deep Pam is willing to go to suppprt him. Great job.

This was not at all what I was expecting! Definitely a supernatural twist and probably the most hideous version of Roy to ever exist.
I loved all the little moments included in this - how quickly Jim falls for Pam, their first “date”, pranking Dwight. The inclusion of that first Christmas was probably my favorite part. I really loved the idea of Jim not even really trying and finding the perfect gift for Angela. There were so many nice little touches like that throughout.
A fun read!
Thank you so much for your review!
The weirdest thing, I don't even loathe Roy that much. But the idea came, and I couldn't fight it, so... sorry, Roy.
I'm glad you like these moments :) They were very fun to write. I definitely want to write more!

Wow, that was a trip. Walked in thinking it was going to be a story about cancer, instead we got Jim the vampire slayer. Didn't see that one coming!
Writing about supernatural stuff feels more comfortable than about cancer, so... Hope you weren't disappointed :)

Well that was much creepier than I expected but in a very good way. I liked what you did with it, and that you didn't spend too long on backstory (always a danger with this kind of story). Good work!
Thank you so much :)
I thought the backstory wasn't that interesting, so I didn't focus on it too much. Glad it worked out well.

It was definitely different that's for sure. I really wasn't expecting the whole supernatural element at all. Still you did a great job setting up the emotional content of everything prior to Pam's stint in the hospital. Nice to see a Jim-saves-the-day story. Even with that, I think it was appropriate to see that Jim is also carrying those images with him. Stuff like that does tend to stick with a person.
Nice to see them together afterwards and that they're there to fend off any further demons.
Thank you for your review! I appreciate it very much.
The whole story was my indulgence to 'Jim in shining armor' idea, I guess. It might be weird, but I just couldn't help.
