How Not To by agian18 Rated: M [Reviews - 107] 89
Summary:

Meeting in an unusual place in life, a broken Jim and Pam try their best to put the pieces of their lives back together while not falling apart and back down the hole that they're trying to help one another out of.

Based on the song "How Not To" by Dan + Shay, because do I *ever* write something that *isn't* based on a song?

What a fun chapter!! I hope we get to read Pam’s thoughts in the next chapter. Love how you incorporated the tea pot and the first non-date.

I’m so glad you updated!!! I love this story. An no! Jim can’t move to Stamford in this universe.

Author's Response: Thank you! We'll see what Jim does with the Stamford information. Always gotta leave doors open... ;)

Adorable story. I love that it was thanks to Karen’s perception that Jim finally noticed Pam’s feelings.

So, what happens after work? Maybe add a new chapter? 😉

Author's Response: Thanks Merria! I was hoping it was a bit of a unique take on it all... There are no plans for a follow up chapter at present, but I have noted your interest! Who knows if inspiration may strike...

Well yes. Yes, we do need a new chapter. This was short and sweet, and I think this story has lots of potential. How did Pam end up with Jim? Is it just a very vivid dream? And what happens when she returns the ring? Will Roy react violently?
So many possibilities. Hope you do write another chapter

Summary:

This story started out being a one-shot inspired by the Taylor Swift song Gorgeous, but then it became so much more. Thanks to Coley for reading and giving feedback. 

Pam and Jim meet right before Jim starts at Dunder-Mifflin. Pam develops a crush on Jim and has to figure out what to do about it.

I love this story! I love how the roles are reversed, except Jim doesn’t seem oblivious to Pam. Can’t wait to read what happens next

OMG!!! What a great drunken conversation! I wonder if Pam is going to remember any of this the next morning. Or if she’s going to be mortified once she’s sober. Hopefully she’s just mildly embarrassed, but not enough to continue taking to Jim. I can’t wait to read what happens next. Hope you post lots of new chapters soon

Summary: Jim starts work at Dunder Mifflin one day later than he'd been supposed to due to personal problems, which leads to a cascade of changed events.

I wish I could leave more than 5 jellybeans. Love this story. Wouldn’t mind if you kept it nice and long. I am definitely going back to read the whole thing once it’s complete.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm going to try to get this done by the New Year, FYI :)

Reviewer: Merria Signed

Yes! Ready for them to get together! I have no more jellybeans to send, so imagine I sent you 20. Love this story

Author's Response: Thank you! Onwards we go!

These two are finally moving forward! Can’t wait to read how the apartment hunting goes. Great chapter!

Awwww such a short chapter. But I’m really glad you’re keeping it up. I love this story and can’t wait to see what comes next. Hope the baby is doing fine

Author's Response: Yeah, it'll probably be short chapters from here on out, but I'm glad you're still enjoying! I'm dedicated to making sure this one does indeed get finished.

I bet Pam’s going to do a double take when she sees Roy and Jim in the same bar. Hopefully this will help her contrast drunk, annoying Roy with charming Jim. Hope this pushes Pam and Roy’s breakup forward

Author's Response: I think it will! Thanks for the review (and the idea).

Reviewer: Merria Signed
Date: September 27, 2019 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3: A Typical Evening

WHAT? So Pam just left with Roy even though he forgot about her and hung up the phone? And he didn’t even remember she was missing, it was Daryll!! Please tell me we are getting rid of him soon.

Author's Response: We will get to her reaction to that in the morning (so, after this next Jim-chapter). I'm trying for S1 Pam here, or even earlier, so she's really into the cognitive dissonance/self-deception...but yes, I don't think it's surprising to imagine that I'm planning to have her break through that. Thanks for the review!

Leave us in suspense, why don’t you LOL. I’m
Hoping the line went dead because of Roy and she breaks up with him then and there.

Author's Response: You might be at least partially right ;) thanks!

Date: November 20, 2019 Title: Chapter 18: Chapter 18: Pam's Morning

The plot thickens! Did Jim punch Roy? Was it because Roy said insulting things about Pam, or maybe Roy just tried to deck Jim out of jealousy but was too slow? Or maybe it was Michael. Can’t wait to read the next chapter

Author's Response: Good guesses all! Thank you.

Summary:

Another day, another conference room meeting with life altering consequences.

Set Season 3, somewhere between 'The Merger' and 'Phyllis' Wedding'

Summary: It's Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch's annual team-building exercise tonight, and they're going on a Booze Cruise. Same time frame, but different boat, different lake, different state, wildly different ending. Right now, though, Pam is unhappy about something and Jim doesn't know how to help.

Fantastic chapter. I wouldn’t have minded de words you deleted.

Author's Response:

Thank you very much! It was kind of turning into a novel (War and Peace dimensions), so some of it had to go...
