I say, have 'em watch chick flicks all night, if you know what I'm sayin'.

I think everyone knows what you're sayin'.

Just for the record, I purposely didn't mention anything about lengths we should aim for or the kind of vibe we want. That's up to the writer, as it should be. Obviously, you don't want a drastically jarring tone from the preceding chapter -- or maybe you do, if it fits the portion of the story you're telling. And if you want to make it a little more, shall we say mature (I'm looking at you ST), feel free. I didn't start it that way because I hate that cliche of a couple in a fancy restaurant going at it up against the buffalo head.

As you were...

May 24th 2007

Yeah, no pressure or anything, Jake. But if you make them hold hands and drink tea and watch When Harry Met Sally after they go up to her apartment, heads are gonna roll.

Well, if you could read the Ch. 3 I wrote, you'd know I'm on the take-it-slow-get-reaquainted side of the fence, much like ST. Now I have to properly describe Pam's apartment. Yikes! Should the whips and chains be hidden or out in the open? ;)

PS I have been partial to "The Love Song of Squirrel McPants" of late...

ST, I was so weirded out when you brought this up, because, I thought to myself, "Didn't I post that?" Yet, it wasn't in this thread. Did some research, and realized you brought it over from the "Tirade" thread...nice cross-reference!

And, Daoust, thanks for letting us know it's done. I'll be heading over to MTT post-haste!

Also: Because we are all willing to admit our fanfic obsession, and that we're ok with some serious smut: What the heck happened to NeverEnoughJam's "Flavors"? Man, that was some really, really well-written...ahem...porn...that I re-read more times than I care to admit. Then, one day, it was gone from MTT. What gives?

May 24th 2007

So whatevs, what chapter will you be contributing to our team effort?

Yeah, you caught me. I like to cross reference. You can be in a committed relationship and still cross reference. There's nothing wrong with that.

So, you're saying it would be a waste of time for someone to go look for it right now because it's not there anymore?

Ha-Ha... nice try, Brian. I think you're gonna have to volunteer for another chapter to get want you're looking for. Unless Whatevs wants to write some porn, I mean fanfic.

ST, you're cracking me up over here. But Pam doesn't need her "vibe" anymore.

May 24th 2007

So whatevs, what chapter will you be contributing to our team effort?

Brian, I will absolutely read the Team Effort, but, as a Good Catholic Girl, I cannot contribute. I am a good writer, but only with regard to scholarly efforts. I leave the Haiku's and the Smut to the Masters. Carry on, people...

May 25th 2007

Hey, Whatevs, I was just joking about the porn. You totally should write a chapter! You can write the episode where they go out for ice cream together. Wait. That could get dirty. How about the one where they wash their cars together? Or maybe not. Definite "getting all wet with the hose and then having sex" potential there. How about just write the Halloween episode where Pam dresses up like a Catholic School Girl? There you go. Nothing dirty about that and you could write from experience.

May 25th 2007

ST, so, apparently you don't have the capacity for sleep either? I just looked out my window, and, um, it's daytime. Almost 7 am. Thank God I have no agenda for tomorrow (urm, today).

And, no, no, I cannot write the smut. I'll read it all the live-long-day, but, I have no talent for the goodity-goodness that is Jamilicious smut. Thank goodness for my more talented sistren and brethern! Bring on the Jammity-jam-jam-smut!

(Okay; seeing as how it's daytime and all, mayhap I'd better go to sleep?)

See you all later this afternoon...

May 25th 2007

Hey guys, I'm loving the Collaboration! Can't wait to see where it goes.

Just one thing Brian, it seems that Chapter 2 is repeated at the start of Chapter 3. Just a small thing you may want to fix.

Keep up the good work everyone!

May 25th 2007

Thanks MB. Unfortunately the site makes changes a pain in the tookus. It also doesn't show new chapters, which is why chapter 4 is up, but you might not see it right away. I don't even have time to read it right now. I'm going out for the day in a few minutes, but any new additions will go up this evening.

May 25th 2007

Pam stood at the door with one hand on the knob.

Nice work, Jake! I'm just starting to read it but it's good already!

May 25th 2007

Awesome, Jake! I loved your descriptions of Pam's apartment and everything in it. (And the kiss, of course.)

May 25th 2007

Great work, Jake! I'm a little worried my chapter won't be near as good as the others, but I've got a few ideas in my head. Are we going to keep it strictly outside of work or could we venture into the office at some point? 'Cause it would be really awesome if Pan's chapter left me an opening to get some Dunder Mifflin time in there (hint, hint). Or not. I'm cool either way.

May 25th 2007

Jake, great job with Chapter 4. Especially liked the call backs to past episodes.

May 25th 2007

Post-it, I'd love to read about Jim and Pam in the Office after they've started dating. Good idea!

May 25th 2007

Maybe I'm being a bit of a spotlight hog here, but I just wanted to submit a link to a fanfic that I wrote and just finished today. The first three chapters were written months ago, and the last one today.

Have a read and feedback me. Good or bad. I can take it.

Reincarnation

Thanks.

And by the way, I haven't read chapter 4 of the NA story, but I'm going to do that now.

May 25th 2007

Jake, I just read your chapter. I LOVE IT. I can't wait to see what everyone else writes.

May 25th 2007

I sent off my draft and I must admit: that was much harder than I expected.

(That's what she said.)

May 25th 2007 edited

Ch. 5 is up. I have to admit, I've only read the first two chapters because I haven't had much computer time today. I figured it was more important to get them up than to read them for now. The upside is I get to read them all at once, instead of like an old newspaper serial. (Or like episodic television.)

Post-it Thief is up next, according to the list, but after that it's open. This could go on as long as we have daring souls willing to try their hands at authorship. And there's no rule against going twice (TWSS). Anyone? Bueller?

  1. Brian (done)
  2. Single Tear (done)
  3. Single Tear (done)
  4. Jake (done)
  5. Pan (done)
  6. Post-it Thief (on the clock....)
  7. open...

By the way, once I have a chance to give it a read through, probably in the next little while, I'll fix the repeated text in Ch.2 that Mixed Berries pointed out.

ETA: repeated text fixed.

ETA again: inadvertent spoiler removed.

May 25th 2007

I can get it done by tomorrow afternoon, but I'll aim for tonight. However, I have a major anatomy test to attend to at the moment.

May 25th 2007 edited

Oh dear. This may be more of a challenge than I thought.

ETA: Not that I'm saying I didn't love your chapter, Pan (because I did), but don't expect too much coming from my chapter, that's all.

May 25th 2007

I just read the whole thing through. Damn. Nice. I'm just glad I got mine out of the way first, because I wouldn't want to follow any of you. By the way Pan, I couldn't even read your last graph without opening iTunes and playing Scarborough Fair. It was like I needed the soundtrack to go with the scene. I still have chills.

I guess I can't avoid the embarrassment now of you all finding out I've dabbled in fanfic twice before. The first one was eh. But I was kind of happy with the other. It seems like I knew a lot more detail about the show then than I do now. I think fatherhood has sapped my brain cells. Anyway, even though it ends abruptly, I thought I'd follow Daoust's lead and post the link here. I never got around to finishing it, possibly because the way this season unfolded after Christmas soured me on the direction I was taking.

Three for Lunch.

May 25th 2007

Yeah, I felt it a rather daunting task to follow all of you guys.

And Post-it Thief, I kind of figured you could just "fade to black," as it were. I know that after Jake's chapter I definitely felt daunted by potential true-love smuttiness. Whatever you come up with, I'm looking forward to reading your chaper!

And thanks, Brian. Just remember -- you yourself said that we can go twice! ;)

May 25th 2007

Post-it Thief, I kind of figured you could just "fade to black

Or just cut to a talking head the next day...

Jim: Pam and I? Um...let's just say, we slept very well last night.

Pan...lovely chapter. And thanks to Brian and ST for starting us out, it's really fun. This is my 1st stab at fanfiction, I never really knew it existed, and now I seem to be on the threshold of yet another Office-related obsession.

Post-it...are they really gonna do it? :P I'll be away from my computer for the next couple of days but I'll be thinking about what our dynamic duo is up to in my absence. Darn my plans for the holiday weekend! Good luck on your test.

If nobody's taken subsequent chapters when I get back, I'd be willing to jump on another.

Have a good weekend everyone. Thanks for all the kind words!!

Bars. Beers. Buuuzzed.

May 25th 2007 edited

Somebody better write the racy stuff, because I'm not. I'm blushing just thinking about it.

Enjoy the getaway, Jake. We'll save a chapter for ya.

May 25th 2007

Pan, great work with ch. 5. That is a great set up for Post It Theif I wonder if PIT's gonna take that ball and run with it. I kinda hope so. The dirty bird in me hopes so.

May 25th 2007

Well, you will all just have to wait and see, now won't you?

PIT

I guess someone missed that memo. :)
