Story Notes:

This is my take on the marriage of Jim and Pam in Season 9. Because I'm a fan of emotional torture, I came up with an idea on what would happen if Pam never hugged Jim back. 

This is my first time writing a story so I admit that this will be rough but I hope you enjoy.

1. Love Suffers Long by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 10] 10 (1016 words)

2. Love is Kind by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 5] 5 (1573 words)

Thanks again for the reviews! 

What this chapter covers: A) How Pam felt after the hug, B) If Jim stayed. Still within the story of Paper Airplane but obviously, it's already canon divergent.

This chapter is a roller coaster and even harder to write than the first one.


3. Love is Not Proud by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 3] 1 (1390 words)
Thanks for all the reviews! This chapter will cover how the day ended for our favorite couple.

4. Love Bears All Things by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 2] 1 (2606 words)

This section covers the events of S9: Livin' the Dream

No warnings except it's going to be a tough read. 

5. Love Believes All Things by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 3] 4 (1521 words)

Pam deals with Jim's first day of absence. This is in between Livin' the Dream and A.A.R.M because there were six days of no-nonsense before the events of A.A.R.M.

I also added Pam's POV from the day of their argument.  

6. Love Hopes All Things by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 2] 1 (1692 words)
Michael Scott does the most Michael Scott things

Jim says goodbye to Michael

Pam gets annoyed with her officemates 

11. And The Greatest of These Is Love by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 2] (2449 words)

The hug aftermath.

They finally go to the lake. 

A.A.R.M. Pt 1 

12. Not Enough for Me? by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 2] (1872 words)
Jim talking head.

13. You Are Everything by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 2] (2381 words)
A.A.R.M. - Possibly the penultimate chapter in this story. I think it's about time we put this thing to rest.

14. Better Than A Fairytale by Robert Dunder [Reviews - 3] 2 (2524 words)
