    Summary

    Ulcers have a high rate of recurrence so... Will lands back in the hospital? Post series. (Mostly because Passcrow keeps saying that Sorkin didn't make enough use of McAvoy's pre-existing condition.)

    Summary

    "I see." Nina eased back another sip of her drink; eyeing Mackenzie. In another life, Nina thought they might have a lot in common- they might've been friends. "So... because I'm not a journalist, because I write for a gossip magazine, I can't keep my mouth shut about my own personal affairs."

    In hindsight, Mac was sure Nina's reaction was possibly easily predictable.

    Summary

    "She appreciates the fact that her daughter is not curtailed or corralled, not quieted or stilled. Charlotte is rambunctious and talkative and charismatic by nature, by McHale nerve and sheer McAvoy will."

    Summary

    “You get it?” Will looked doubtful. “Get what?”

    “Why you’re in love with Mac but you can’t be with her, at least, yet.” With a shrug, Sloan delivered complexities of human with realities with… you know, the ease she delivered everything with. She saw him, she saw his mouth open, ready to argue but she shook her head, “Just accept the assumption that you’re in love with Mac. The drinks here aren’t good, you and I can afford to go to real restaurants, and you have better scotch in your underwear drawer.” She frowned, “I’m assuming. You come here because she’s here.”

    Summary

    "Jesus Christ, how much do you hate me?"

    If Mac's discovering Will's non-compete clause had been given a full discussion, maybe a little later the same day.

    Summary

    Heading for the kitchen, powered by a desperate and all-consuming need for coffee, her heart sinks as she sees she has two missed calls and a voicemail. She knows it's unlikely someone called for a friendly chat at...5.24am.

    Summary

    “Last night.” She clarifies as he chews, watching as she paces uneasily down the length of his kitchen. “I thought we had a good time.”

    “We did. I did. It was perfect.” But it wasn’t the same.

    “What is it then?” She looks worried now, eyes pleading with him as she stops to press her palms into the counter directly in front of him.

    “I wanted to be the sappy jerk that got to watch you sleep and cook you breakfast. I wanted to have a conversation about something that doesn’t involve other people.” I wanted to be a little bit selfish, he doesn’t say.

    “So why did you tell me?” “If I had it to do over, I wouldn’t…”

    Summary

    “I'm an intern.” She doesn't know why she says it other than she doesn't want him thinking she's getting ahead of herself, putting herself on the same level as Mark Draper.

    “I know.” He doesn't seem bothered by the fact. If anything, it seems to soften his opinion of her. “I expect he'll be jealous you talked to me.”

     

    Will works for the DA, Mac is a summer intern at CNN.

    Summary

    “Too bad about those couriers, eh?” Neal began, fiddling absently with his e-cigarette.
    Indifferently, Will lit a real cigarette and took a deep pull. “They got a lucky break. Yesterday, they were just two stringers scrabbling for a story. Today, they’re the honored dead.”

    Could act as follow-up to 'Options' or it could stand alone. Set right as Mac is deciding not to see Brian anymore.

    Summary

    Inspired by a prompt by lilacmermaid on tumblr

     

    What if Will & Mackenzie were never a couple before Mac left, but only the best of friends?

    Summary

    “I didn't realize that was an option but I'm all for it, McHale.” Will/Mac, pre-series, pre-relationship. Just a flashback from one of my other stories that I decided to mess around with. By the time I'm done it'll probably just be a vehicle for flirtation, etc. Enjoy!
