Feels like some of the stress is starting to ease off. That was a great moment with Michael joking about his kids names. Feels very much like something he would do. Nice to get some perspective from Holly as well.

Pam pranking Dwight was fun. Feels like she's starting to get back to herself too. Though the conversation with Darryl does seem like a bit of step back.

Still doing a great job with this.

Author's Response: Thank you so much!

Holly, I feel like, is a really toned down version of Michael so she has a better pick up on social cues. I feel like she would be someone to distract Michael so she can get to the root of the problem so I wrote that part about her telling Michael to get the dog.
I try to lighten the mood on Pam because I don't want her to be downer throughout the entire story. But I still have to squeeze in that one tiny bit of doubt in her because her problems aren't really solved.

There are a lot of fun details in this! The Michael-Holly relationship seems right (the too-long kiss, the innuendo, the dog's name) and I loved the prank with the kids' names.

Plus the Dwight line about how it's totally a different situation even though it does involve a lot of the same people and his comforting Pam were very much in Dwight's voice.

Author's Response:

Thank you! The one quality I want to retain when writing Holly is she really gets Michael when everyone else is like, "Who the hell is this guy?"

I tried to balance Dwight because I know he's always had a soft spot for Pam, I think he would have played along with Pam's prank regardless if Jim begged him to because he knows Pam has been having a rough few days.
