    Summary

    "Someone once said to me that being a war correspondent is an act of violence against the people you love the most because they end up having to stay behind worrying about you." Will's point of view while Mac is embedded. Borrowed Jordan from 'Studio 60' for later chapters, just because I think she and Mac would have made a great team.

    Summary

    “So why did you tell me?” “If I had it to do over, I wouldn’t…”
    A little fantasia in which Mac gets a do-over. In other words, be careful what you wish for.

    Summary

    I haven't quite decided where I'm going with this, I'm afraid - so the title might end up seeming a bit mis-leading.

    Where are we? We're at CNN, August 2007. Will and Mac are a couple, and they live in DC.

    I have always been a bit frustrated by all the weird holes and gaps and inconsistencies in these characters' back stories, so I'm trying to work around the clues that Sorkin left in the first and last episodes, primarily.

    Summary

    What happens between the time Will goes to jail and when he gets released 52 days later? A view on some random days and what could have happened. I don't own anything, all characters belong to Sorkin.

    The M-rating only refers to the last chapter, all other chapters are max. rated T and can also be read as one shots.

    Summary

    Response to lilacmermaid25's April Challenge (three things: downpour, painkillers, spice rack). Post-S2, pre-S3. Fluff, in progress. "Because the fact that he was achingly in love with every goddamn inch of her still didn't negate the fact that she didn't know where he kept the extra toothpaste. Or where the coffee filters were. Not anymore."

    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.”

    Summary

    "You're calling me at..." Mac answered the phone, and then pulled it away from her cheek to wince at her clock, "3:32 in the morning, Will."

    Settling back into her pillow, Mac waited for an explanation, as if Will McAvoy afforded her any of those these days.

    "Yes, and if I'd been calling to ask the time, I'd imagine I'd be greatly satisfied by now." Will exhaled pale smoke from his cigarette, watched it waft and float from the balcony, away into the city's night sky.
